But I feel that the true purpose is far much deeper than that. It's not a positive vibe at all on any level.


Check out this guy:hiddenexperience.blogspot.com...

He's all about owls and "high strangeness"

Watch his video lecture about owls, given in England.



Want to bump this post, and link something I came across once. Also along somewhat similar lines but w/ reverse speech analysis hypothesis thrown in for good measure, which I make no claims of knowing whether or to what degree such a thing has any validity, but in the spirit of the 'owls are weird somehow' theme going on in this thread I present it here. At the end the author gets into owl religious/spiritual practice/beliefs from different cultures.


You cannot hear the Owl and some Native Americans feared the Owl and called its feathers deception feathers. The authors say that this owl is oftentimes the medicine of sorcerers and witches and if these birds gather around you alot, you may be drawn to the magical practices. A warning is also given that one should resist any temptation to practice black magic or any art that takes energy away from another being. “However, even if Owl is your medicine it doesn’t necessarily mean you are a black magician or sorcerer. Owls nature is to see what others cannot which is the essence of true wisdom. Where others are deceived, Owl sees and knows what is there”. (pg.121)

In other cultures like ancient Greece, the Goddess Athena was associated with an Owl on her shoulder. Owl teaches unseen truths and can enable one to perceive the whole truth. Basically people with Owl medicine can see through people and their ulterior motives and not be deceived as easily as others... its appearance can also mean you have been greatly deceived by either yourself or another. Perhaps witchcraft or black magic is being used against you. It can be saying to you to look deeper into yourself about what you are “in the dark about” or even to look at your own darkness, shadow and blind spots.
evelorgen.com...

Btw is the thread title a Twin Peaks reference? I recognize it from somewhere. According to the article/lecture in the link fr. RavenSpeaks, owls may sometimes be used as 'screen memories' in place of ufo/alien encounters (allegedly, of course). I seem to remember something similar in the movie the 'The 4th Kind'. Wait, that's where the thread title comes from, [that movie. Although I seem to recall something about owls in Twin Peaks as well.

So in some cases, maybe owls really are not what they seem! (acc. to certain people, at least) Not trying to make it all about aliens but just something I came upon recently. Seemed a good fit for this thread.

I always found the Cardiff cineworld in the shape of an owl to be rather sinister.

Wow that is creepy.. Bohemian grove has a large owl that they worship .. I've heard moloch or one of those ancient gods was an owl.. The Egyptian and illuminate symbolism on these is definitely strange..

The bible uses owls as a representation of evil or uncleanliness.. I'd be curious why the artist chose this and the symbolism on each.. The real reason why, not the rehearse response.. If I was to guess.. I'd say he was directed...

Owls can be creepy looking but I think some of you guys are all looking into this way to much. Of all places why would they choose Birmingham as the location for some kind of massive kinetic energy generating plot lol?

That Madonna video really burns me up. Like she didn't create a whole generation of teen pro-bono prostitutes with her music.

I a) live in Birmingham and b) know several of the artists involved in producing the owls.

Of the people I know (6 of the artists) only one of them received any direction as to the design of their owls - the rest had free reign to do what they wanted. The only one that did get artistic advice was doing his owl in conjunction with an inner city school and they wanted something to demonstrate multicultural inclusiveness.

Any suggestion that this is somehow a sinister masonic, illuminati, government blah blah blah blah conspiracy is 100% nonsense. It's just (often stunning, beautiful) art produced by local artists.

Enjoy it? It makes me a bit sad that people here often look at this kind of stuff and see some kind of dark conspiracy.

The Illuminati of who I am member is opposed to artificial depopulation and active against Eugenicist tyrants
Opposed to Poverty and War and suffering yet you believe others who use our name falsely



Fair enough, but the Illuminati are the Illuminati. There is no good one and bad one. For instance, if I had created a group that was in total opposition to ISIS.....then why would I name my group ISIS? Why would the Illuminati you speak of, want the exact same name of those that you profess tarnishes the name? It's like white witches and black witches.....God and every follower of God still sees them as a denial of the truth and light, and a witch is still a witch. They all do the same incantations and believe in the same things despite "trying" to look good, by putting make-up on the same old pig.

Why the same name for evil and good, when all that does is confuse people, and possibly sets the stage for another to fall into the wrong trap?

If anything, there is great evidence that the Illuminati is doing their best to exterminate humanity.


They're not doing a very good job then...

There is no way you'll shift the notion that the owls are an illuminati false-flag display for nefarious reasons. They tried it in Liverpool with lamb bananas and must have decided to use the owls instead.

Personally, I think Birmingham has enough just being Birmingham without the dark forces of Earth deciding to make things worse. I mean, kick a guy when he's down, right? That's just evil...

Yeah, we prefer to keep up the myth that it's rubbish here, it'll keep rental/house prices down at sensible levels for a bit longer... ;-)

As to the nefarious illuminati exhibition... like I said, any suggestion that this is some sort of conspiracy seems like nonsense to me. I know too many of the people involved, it's just not the case.

Yeah, I was joking with you.

It's art and some of it is capital A Art in my opinion. That cadburys one is a little lacking in the spirit of things and a handful of others could have been more creative. Otherwise, they're absolutely beautiful and much better-looking than our lamb bananas were...

We can agree that owls are laden with symbolism, but, nope, I don't think they're anything more than attractive media pieces.

One clearly has the eye of RA on it, which is the same eye that the Illuminati worships. One has nothing but praises for the Banking industry on it, the same Banks owned by the Illuminati, One is from Ozzy Osbourne, a confessed and proud Satanist and harbinger of souls for the Illuminati...like so many other artists (he is just the oldest, most famous and most dedicated). One has partial reptilian skin and a Monarch Butterfly wing (Monarch butterflies are symbols of mind control and seen in many of todays popular videos that try to mold the minds of children). One is completely inundated with Egyptian Hieroglyphics...again, the same crap the Illuminati worships.
I find it kind of ironic that al of these "different" people, from different walks of life, with "free reign" over what they could paint....would be all this dark art stuff that all align with the Illuminati beliefs. Maybe you do know them....but maybe you don't know their personal lives so well. You have to admit, most of these do align with Illuminati beliefs and symbolism outright.

I actually know them really, really well, and I don't have to admit anything about any perceived symbolism or illuminati beliefs. You might not get it but I guess you've not spent that much time around street artists? I don't see any irony involved anywhere.

The Egyptian one (g'owl'd) is by a street artist called Temper (real name Aaron). He's one of the best known street artists in the world and is heavily interested in symbolism and philosophy - he's not however, by any stretch, some sort of agent of the illuminati. Seriously, if you'd met him you'd understand how mad that sounds.

The 'eye of ra' you're talking about is presumably the one done by Mac1 (real name Lee, and another of the six I was on about)... you'd probably do well to look at his other work before making any kind of assumptions. He's a street & tattoo artist that's into futurism and photorealistic portraiture. He's been around the midlands for 20+ years.

Google's your friend here - seriously, look at the other work by the artists involved before making more assumptions.

Like lots of others, I thought this thread was satire. The idea that it's some kind of illuminati project just doesn't square with the experiences of the people involved.

You use the name IlluminatiTechnician ...
So by your reckoning
You are a technician for the The Illuminati ?

The organisation I belong to has no affiliation with any other contemporary group who use the title Illuminati

Like with this thread ... Many look for evil intent in the Owls when it is simply not there
Some lump conspiracy theory upon conspiracy theory of all that ails this planet ... and add the word Illuminati to it
In a sense it is rather comical but also sad

Well, the thread isn't what I expected, when first seeing the title. Those owls are, in a world, weird. Only one that you showed didn't creep me out in some way, and that is the one toward the end of the post, with the child-book-like images painted on it. Very odd imagery on the rest.

Is there some sort of map you can post, showing where they are positioned? Apologies if it's already done, as I have only read the initial post thus far.

Selection of some more cultures/countries owl mythological meanings. More at the link, seriously it's a long list, this is long enough though already to include in one post.

Owls in Myth & Culture
Abyssinia: The Hamites held the Owl to be sacred.
Afghanistan: The Owl gave Man flint and iron to make fire - in exchange, Man gave the Owl his feathers.
Africa, Central: The Owl is the familiar of wizards to the Bantu.
Africa, East: The Swahili believe the Owl brings illness to children.
Africa, Southern: Zulus know the Owl as the sorcerers' bird.
Africa, West: The messenger of wizards and witches, the Owl's cry presages evil.
Algeria: Place the right eye of an Eagle Owl in the hand of a sleeping woman and she will tell all.
Arabia: The Owl is a bird of ill omen, the embodiment of evil spirits that carries off children at night. According to an ancient Arabic treatise, from each female Owl supposedly came two eggs, one held the power to cause hair fall out and one held the power to restore it.
Arctic Circle: A little girl was turned into a bird with a long beak by magic, but was so frightened she flapped about madly and flew into a wall, flattening her face and beak. So the Owl was created.
Australia: Aborigines believe bats represent the souls of men and Owls the souls of women. Owls are therefore sacred, because your sister is an Owl - and the Owl is your sister.
Aztecs: One of their evil gods wore a Screech Owl on his head.
Babylon: Owl amulets protected women during childbirth.
Belgium: Legend has it that a priest offered the Owl his church tower to live in if the bird would get rid of the rats and mice that plagued his church.
Bordeaux: Throw salt in the fire to avoid the Owl's curse.
Borneo: The Supreme Being turned his wife into an Owl after she told secrets to mortals.
Brittany: An Owl seen on the way to the harvest is the sign of a good yield.
Burma: During a quarrel among the birds, the Owl was jumped upon and so his face was flattened.
Cameroon: Too evil to name, the Owl is known only as "the bird that makes you afraid".
Carthage: The city was captured by Agathocles of Syracuse (Southern Italy) in 310 BC. Afterward, he released Owls over his troops and they settled on their shields and helmets, signifying victory in battle.
Celtic: The Owl was a sign of the underworld.
China: The Owl is associated with lightning (because it brightens the night) and with the drum (because it breakes the silence). Placing Owl effigies in each corner of the home protect it against lightning. The Owl is a symbol of Too much Yang (positive, masculine, bright, active energy).
Ethiopia: man condemned to death was taken to a table on which an Owl was painted, and then expected to take his own life.
Etruria: To the Etruscans of Ancient Italy the Owl was an attribute of the god of darkness.
France: When a pregnant woman hears an Owl it is an omen that her child will be a girl.
Germany: If an Owl hoots as a child is born, the infant will have an unhappy life.
Greenland: The Inuit see the Owl as a source of guidance and help.
Hawaii: Owls feature in old war chants.
Incas: Venerated the Owl for its beautiful eyes and head.
India: Seizures in children could be treated with a broth made from Owl eyes. Rheumatism pain was treated with a gel made from Owl meat. Owl meat could also be eaten as a natural aphrodisiac. In northern India, if one ate the eyes of an Owl, they would be able to see in the dark. In southern India, the cries of an Owl were interpreted by number: One hoot was an omen of impending death; two meant success in anything that would be started soon after; three represented a woman being married into the family; four indicated a disturbance; five denoted coming travel; six meant guests were on the way; seven was a sign of mental distress; eight foretold sudden death; and nine symbolized good fortune. In parts of the Indian sub-continent people believed that the Owl was married to the bat.
Indonesia: Around Manado, on the isle of Sulawesi, People consider Owls very wise. They call them Burung Manguni. Every time someone wants to travel, they listen to the owls. The owls make two different sounds; the first means it is safe to go, and the second means it's better to stay at home. The Minahasa, people around Manado, take those warnings very seriously. They stay at home when Manguni says so. Information thanks to Alex van Poppel.
Iran: In Farsi the Little Owl (Athene Noctua) is called "Joghde-kochek". It is said that this bird brings bad luck. In Islam, it's forbidden (Haram) to eat.
Ireland: An Owl that enters the house must be killed at once, for if it flies away it will take the luck of the house with it.
Israel: In Hebrew lore the Owl represents blindness and desolation and is unclean.
Jamaica: o ward off the Owl's bad luck, cry "Salt and pepper for your mammy".
Japan: Among the Ainu people the Eagle Owl is revered as a messenger of the gods or a divine ancestor. They would drink a toast to the Eagle Owl before a hunting expedition. The Screech Owl warns against danger. Though they think the Barn Owl and Horned Owl are demonic.

And here's something I came across today when googling 'Raves & Ufo's' b/c some friends and I once saw a UFO right before attending an outdoor rave, nearby down the road from where it was held. (Also have seen some great Northern Lights at a rave before, though in that case it was an indoor venue, but I digress).
