interesting article - but some of the sources
might need checking.
The earliest known history of the All-Seeing Eye, dates back to ancient Babylon. It was worshipped as the Solar Eye... It was also represented as the
eye of Jove or Jupiter. It has been called the eye of Phoebus or Apollo.
It was also referred to as the eye of Baal, and as the eye of providence. Illuminati and the "EYE": The Illuminati, founded by Weishaupt in 1776,
adopted as their Seal "a 13-layered unfinished pyramid with the capstone missing. Hovering above is a sun-rayed triangle, as if waiting to be
lowered to complete the structure.
In mystery religions, the triangle symbolizes power, such as a throne or kingdom, and is sometimes pictured as a horn. The triangle is also a symbol
of the dwelling place of the pagan higher power, representing a mountain top in hilly country, a pyramid in Egypt, or a ziggurat in Mesopotamia.
The ancients called the "ziggurat" Hill of Heaven, or Mountain of God." (John Daniel, Vol. I, p. 163) Weishaupt also placed in the center of
this hovering triangle, a man's eye. The eye represents the Illuminati's own spying system. The eye also represents the Priory of Sion, who
also adopted the symbol from the Egyptians, (the All-Seeing Eye of Horus), with the triangle representing the power of the Merovingian thrones.
The Ziggurat is interesting also, I noticed they had one over an old unused doorway at Rosalyn chapel in Edinburgh.
