The symbols are the way. From madness comes method, from method comes enlightenment. The Illuminati is a ghost, a society that wanders within society, unseen, unheard, but as potent as a God-myth hammer blow. Communication is the artery of the concealed legion; the signs lead the way, marking the Walkers of the Path.
The All-Seeing Eye
One eye, one goal. Yes, the Illuminati are watching. The Cyclops of universal government should not instill fear. Look now at what we have: Presidents, Prime Ministers, Dictators, Fanatics. So many tiny fractures in the whole.
The all-seeing eye has propagated throughout society as an Illuminati symbol, so much so that it is now an antiquated mark of the Illuminati. The Eye of Horus has become outmoded to a great degree, serving little purpose beyond ceremonial rites.
J. R. R Tolkien, that wily but respected foe, portrayed the eye as evil, but the Illuminati are not Sauron. The evil eye of a Dark Lord is not the all-seeing eye of illumination.
The Illuminati Pyramid
The pyramid, ancient channel of light, dark and power. The Egyptians, so advanced for their time (more so than many are aware, with good reason), drew strength from the pyramidal structure. The dead within and the living without, riches on both sides of the realm.
For the Illuminati, pyramid symbolism remains potent. Members are aware of the intrinsic power contained by the pyramid, their knowledge increasing with their rank.
Phoenix / Eagle Illuminati Symbols
“As above, so below” – so goes the doctrine. Basic minds associate “below” with an underworld, a place of pain and suffering. Why? Because these minds think too low. “Above” is above us, placing us below (we are within the physical world – an important shift of perspective, and one that omits the underworld).
The eagle watches over us, sharp-eyed and ready. The phoenix rises from the flames. Again, those who think ill of the Illuminati see the phoenix as a harbinger of destruction – rising from flames caused by the Illuminati themselves. So wrong, so wrong.
The Illuminati have waited patiently, and they will remain quiet. Until, that is, the flames caused by humanity, or by events beyond human control, call forth the Watchers. Then, rising from the hot ashes, the Illuminati will support humanity in times of great upheaval. Human knowledge must survive – this is known.
Illuminati Owl Symbolism
The owl is wisdom and vigilance, the embodiment and pinnacle of the Illuminati. Knowledge is power and you should strive to obtain it. The Owl of Minerva, born of the Greeks and Romans, is the Illuminati symbol, or seal, found on secret documents and transcripts from the highest assemblies.
Watch for this symbol in places of power, but do not place your trust too quickly – the symbol has been used by interlopers and frauds.
Watch for it in art and literature. J. K. Rowling (I.I.()_ , for example, has her knowledge-seeking characters looked over by owls. The incredible success of Harry Potter would suggest a certain relationship that few have recognized.
Modern Illuminati Symbols
A symbol that has permeated the very fabric of society can lose its potency, especially as a form of secret communication. Illuminati members, therefore, utilize new symbolic forms to replace those that have become unearthed. In general, scholars and conspiracy theorists take at least 50 years to recognize the appearance of any such symbol.
Internet Illuminati Symbolism – Golden Ring
Here, however, is a rare insight into the new wave of Illuminati symbolism. The society has been using one particular low-level image for some time, but it has recently come to the fore: the Golden Ring. Tolkien recognized the use of the ring in the late 1930s, and was aware of its significance for the Illuminati. It represents power and responsibility, as well as the threat of division when unity is required.
Why has there been a sudden resurgence of the Golden Ring within Illuminati symbolism? The answer is simple: the Internet. Human knowledge, ideas and communication have been digitized, creating a new and powerful realm. The Internet is a new field of play, and the Illuminati are never slow to make their mark:
