While I value your contribution to the Illuminati discussion, I was merely trying to settle a common misconception about the usage of the eye as a
focal point of reference.
So as not to come off as an ass with levity, I shall attempt to explain further.
Humans are very visual creatures. We take in the majority of our sensory experience via our visual senses and throughout history and throughout human
culture, the eye has always been a focal point of reference.
In the case of Odin, his eye was sacrificed in pursuit of Wisdom.
Wisdom = Illumination or "Enlightenment".
I cannot speak for the back history of Nick Fury, as I am somewhat unversed in his story, but I'm sure he learned a lesson from that experience as
well. Thusly, more learning - another step on the ladder to the aforementioned Wisdom/Illumination.
I guess what gets me about the "Modern NWO/Illuminati" Conspiracy circuit is most people never learn their history beyond a few years of recent
modern cultural trends, and hence, are still shrouded in the proverbial darkness of what the Original Illuminati stood for.
The very term "Illuminati" has been hijacked by sensationalist propagandists in an attempt to keep the blind in the dark and under their subversive
control of images, media, negative hype and bad youtube video "exposes".
If that makes me an ass, then HEE-HAW.
Guess I'm an ass.
But I'd rather be stubborn on this issue than further watching the blind lead the blind down a rabbit hold of despair, discontent, and
disillusionment over something as benign as a hand gesture.
Illumin-iten up. Sheesh!
