So I just learned the other day that in Egyptian Hieroglyphic inscriptions, there’s always a bird at the beginning that indicates the reading direction by following the direction the bird is looking. It has no meaning of its own, just a “Start here and go that way” symbol.

Makes me think that the Kapteyn sequence (nice title pun, BTW) means something like “Hey, this is important!”
