Luminoth alpha thought

Luminoth Distress Signal Thought Cluster.

The Luminoth language is a three-dimensional written language. It uses a system of dots and lines on a 3-D grid to represent various English letters. A single word forms one cluster of these lines and dots. Letters are connected to each other by a bright dot that is part of both letters. Luminoth "writing" can be seen on Luminoth Lore Projectors in Metroid Prime 2: Echoes and in Luminoth Lore.

When U-Mos first updates Samus Aran's Translator Module, she is able to access various devices and Translator Doors with violet holograms. The holograms of deceased sentinels of various temples later provide her with access to the other color codes.
