      What's so cool about this gesture is that after you've made contact with the Brain of Mensis and got the Moon rune, the member of the School of Mensis who you learn it from changes positions and is seen grovelling/praying on the floor

        Someone said it could be a representation of the progression from day to night, and I think that's the right of it. This gesture has one use in the game, you show it to the Brain of Mensis and receive the highest tier (and most clear) Moon rune. Caryll Runes are something like synesthetic pictographs of actual speech. So you show this gesture to a Great One and it responds to you, "moon."

        Alternatively, it could be that the gesture is just an invitation to speak, and the Brain responds by recognizing you for what you really are, the moon scented hunter, and speaks that to you.

          I love the complex meaning behind this gesture, and love each and every interpretation I've come across, guessing its exact meaning. I feel like I should be listening to Lateralus from Tool whenever I'm doing this gesture.

            So it turns out the initial make contact gesture is wrong, so after a min or so your character will switch arms and that's the corrct make contact gesture.

              I tried to mimic the movements of Make Contact. It made my arms feel funny. I could feel my bones rub against each other. I did a full minute each side and it honestly, it felt super unnatural. It almost felt like something I couldn't see was interacting with me. Obviously nothing superstitious was happening, but it certainly makes you feel uneasy. Perhaps that feeling is why From decided on that pose to br the communion between humans and great ones.

                My girlfriend streched like the gesture when she was yawning. Maybe it was a coincidence but i thing yawning is the origin of make contact

                  Outside the Choirbuilding, you see a lot of those worms looking into a direction - the clocktower. Tick . Tock. Splish. Splash.

                    I'm wondering if this gesture symbolizes the changing of Day to Night. The arms showing the change in horizons and how the sky moves around.

                    The brain of Mensis grants us the Moon rune when we show it the Night side of the gesture

                        Tried this gesture in the boss area where the player character encounters the Living Failures and my character made the motion of making contact. Used the gesture in the direction of the sunflowers in the center of the area. Can anyone please verify whether or not the motion of the gesture is just something that happens whenever you use the gesture and wait, or if this is something that has some meaning behind it.
