The origin of the "All seeing eye," in my opinion.

So I'm prompted by another member's thread to bring this up.
For many years people have wondered as to the meaning of the single eye on the American buck and other places it has shown up.
Truthfully I've waited a few years hoping that it would come up in a real conversation. But it never has, so here is my interpretation.
I have to thank Tom Waits for repeating the quote that explains it in his song "Singapore." I can't remember who initially stated it, but it makes sense.
The quote:
"In the land of the blind,
The one eyed man is king."

Its usage on the dollar bill is meant to represent the eye of God and is taken from Trinitarian Christian usage of the same image.

What you're trying to say, even though you won't actually say it for some reason, is that if male and female sides can not agree on what should be "seen" (done, enacted, etc), then only one eye will remain and bring forth whatever "entertainment" is created based on only "one side" calling the shots.

That is one of many but not the origin.

It goes much deeper than a metaphor. Think about the upside-down pentagram and its various meanings. Satyr hoof - is that the original meaning?


Meaning or understanding?

No it isn't.

Well maybe to some.

Yeah, it is. The notes from the members of the several committees tasked to work on the Great Seal made this clear. You can read them yourself if you had the motivation.

Oh you should know by now I'm full of motivation. If you were feeling generous though, you'd provide a linky for the winky.

Its about control...

The all seeing eye is a holdover from history before the invention of the CCD camera.

In certain epochs the gargoyles staring down at you from the rooftops instilled another kind of paranoia about being watched. Another kind still instilled in peoples minds is the fear of "an invisible man up in the sky who watches every--" aw hell, George says it better...

interesting song lyrics

In the land of the blind, what of the two or three eyed man?


Singapore
Tom Waits



We sail tonight for Singapore
We're all as mad as hatters here
I've fallen for a tawny moor
Took off to the land of nod
Drank with all the Chinamen
Walked the sewers of Paris
I danced along a colored wind
Dangled from a rope of sand
You must say goodbye to me


We sail tonight for Singapore
Don't fall asleep while you're ashore
Cross your heart and hope to die
When you hear the children cry
Let marrow bone and cleaver choose
While making feet for children's shoes
Through the alley, back from hell
When you hear that steeple bell
You must say goodbye to me


Wipe him down with gasoline
Till his arms are hard and mean
From now on boys this iron boat's your home
So heave away, boys


We sail tonight for Singapore
Take your blankets from the floor
Wash your mouth out by the door
The whole town's made of iron ore
Every witness turns to steam
They all become Italian dreams
Fill your pockets up with earth
Get yourself a dollar's worth
Away boys, away boys, heave away


The captain is a one-armed dwarf
He's throwing dice along the wharf
In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king
So take this ring


We sail tonight for Singapore
We're all as mad as hatters here
I've fallen for a tawny moor
Took off to the land of nod
Drank with all the Chinamen
Walked the sewers of Paris
I drank along a colored wind
I dangled from a rope of sand
You must say goodbye to me

Oh are we talking about a spiritual image being hi-jacked and inverted?

Its amazing how often that seems to happen. Such is life in this little pond I suppose.

I have another theory, maybe it points towards reality being some sort of projection.......

Meaning the triangle it is not a pyramid or a triangle but lines of perspective.

You read all four of the committees writings already?

The image was not 'hi-jacked', it was used in the same manner and to represent the same symbology.

George Carlin is right. Religions should pay taxes.

What bothers me is how the Illuminati stole the symbol and pretend it was their's first.

Actually just did an etymological search on the phrase.

en.m.wiktionary.org...

Its root dates back to the 4th or 5th century CE, so there's a pretty good chance the quote and any graphic representation representative of that quote could be easily used among the, (unfortunately,) illiterate, (at that time,) without worry of people realizing what was happening. In my view the "PTB" had become so comfortable with the ignorance of the general population, that they had no concerns about displaying such a symbol. if anything, I would feel justified if the US mint changed the dollar bill.

All seeing eye came as a metaphysical concept along with the birth of the first emerging neolithic societies..
Some new age story book tellers believes it as something else, and misplace it..
