Working on a "Scripts and Their Writing Systems" iceberg. (NOW ON ICEBERGCHARTS.COM)

Hi! I had this idea in school where I wanted to make an iceberg describing the various scripts and their writing systems.
I put this on Icebergharts.com! If you have an account, make sure to submit proposals to this iceberg!

This iceberg will have eight layers.
This iceberg will have six categories for the entries (Alphabet, Abugida, Abjad, Logogram/Syllabary, and Unknown/Undeciphered)

Here are the entries so far.

Layer 1: Latin (the very script you are reading right now), Cyrillic, Arabic, Hebrew, Greek, Hiragana, Katakana, Kanji/Hanzi, Korean/Hangul, Thai

Layer 2: Georgian, Burmese, Sinhalese, Khmer, Kannada, Ge'ez

Layer 3: Gothic, Coptic, Cherokee, Runic, Armenian

Layer 4: Cuneiform, Tifinagh

Layer 5: Vai, Yi, Bassa Vah

Layer 6: Bamum, Glagolitic

Layer 7: Rongorongo, Ditema Tsa Dinoko, Duployan

Layer 8: Linear A, Linear B

If you wanna help me expand or modify this then go ahead.

Don't eat glue, kids. <- this part of my sig appeared in a dream so I wanted to put it here

FYI: “alot” and “aswell” aren't real words. Every spellchecker I've used puts a red squiggle under those “words”.

And now, an excerpt from Matrix Dimensions (2101).

Morpheus (holding out left hand):
You take the blue pill, the story ends; you wake up in your bed and believe whatever you want to believe.
(Holding out right hand):
You take the red pill, you stay in Wonderland, and I show you how deep the rabbit hole goes.
(Holding out middle hand?):
You take the purple pill…
Neo (confused as heck):
Wha…?
Morpheus (continued):
…I choose for you; be warned: it's probably not going to be the blue pill.
(Neo takes the blue pill and the purple pill.)
Morpheus (visibly annoyed):

The blue pill was a placebo…
(The blue pill was not a placebo.)
…and you chose the purple pill, meaning I choose for you. Come with me.
(Morpheus throws Neo out of an opened window, Neo breaking an arm and a leg in the process.)
Morpheus:

No one abuses the pills…
(continued, holding out hand below middle hand??)
…especially when you don't take the mandatory green pill.
Neo (telepathically to Morpheus):
Jinx! One… two…
(Morpheus doesn't want to be jinxed, so he jumps out of the window, breaking one of his arms and one of his legs in the process.)
Neo (weakly):

Ha! Now do you feel my pain?
Morpheus (weakly):
No, not really. Didn't feel a thing.
(Morpheus and Neo go back inside the building, while limping.)
