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


The Bavarian Illuminati never used an eye as a symbol, they used a circumpunct.

George Carlin is right. Religions should pay taxes.

He's also right when he says he leaves symbols to the 'symbol minded', lol.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that for the Western Civilization, Literacy only became commonplace in the last century or two. As such, the population relied on either the church or the crown describing what reality was.
So, when the infamous meetings such as what occurred on Jekyll Island occurred, the parties involved were comfortable in the knowledge that the mass population would blindly accept the new FEDERAL bank.

The all-seeing eye of God, yes. Though some have linked it to the eye of Horus. It really is a matter of what one wants to believe. Whatever the case may be, like with all sacred iconography and symbology, its meaning has been skewed and obfuscated over the centuries.

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.


Eye of Horus, no?

Lot yeah thanks. I watched about 3 seconds but had to turn it off. Otherwise I'd have to spend the next hour listening to the whole album
I was able to see the "Thick as a Brick 2" show a couple of years ago. It was awesome though Ian can't hit the notes like he used to. Apparently there's a new tour on, but their not coming into Canada. Check it out if you can. If you enjoy the music, it's well worth while.

No, because by the time the eye appeared on the dollar bill it had been widely used for centuries in Western culture as a Christian symbol. It was understood that it represented the Abrahamic God and not Horus.

In its earlier usage it would have been used to represent Horus but by this time it had a different meaning.

A good book on the history of the symbol is Albert Pott's The World's Eye.

Love George's work. Got to see him live once. I told friends years ago: "Today's comedians are yesterday's philosophers. Look at Bill Hicks and George Carlin. One of Carlin's best interviews. "Circling the Drain."

Yes but the Christians lifted it from the Egyptians and their fable.

"Bull's Eye"





"Consider this:
The hint of the century,
Consider this:
The slip, that brought me to my knees, failed.
What if all these fantasies come flailing around?
Now I've said too much.

Well if you've had good luck on prying open that third eye, good on ye. But at the same time you'lĺ have noticed that you are surrounded by folks who have not. Hopefully you have people around you, who are supportive. In my experience, you probably still have to deal with egos and manipulation. I hope you don't, buy probably.

I think the earliest it pops up is in Tamil poems and Siddhar practises
The Sun and the Moon are symbols for the eyes
and the One eye a symbol of Divine Jothi in the center of the head

its been a very popular symbol used in a variety of ways
I think I saw it in the Demon headmaster...

It's a symbol and like all symbols it has many differnt layers of meaning
especially depending on who is using it.

It is also called the eye of providence and often times has been symbolic for God.

Pentagrams or Pentacles are seen as having occult meanings today but at one time pentacles where associated with Christianity.

Swastikas use to be symbolic of the sun, seasons, and were talismans of good fortune but thanks to the Nazi's
I wouldn't recommend drawing any today.

Just like the meaning of words change through out time so does the meaning of symbols depending on who is ussing them.

I don't know how accurate it is but I like Frater Xaviers take on the eye in the pyramid.

Off topic but on Bill Hicks.


On topic-- imo, the all seeing eye is really how things appear from the next dimension, everywhere and everywhen, all at once.

The true meaning of omniscience, and not just reserved for "God" All we have to do is be in the spirit.
