The washington monument is an obelisk.
But I am sure you are thinking of soem statue of GW with a toga on. So are you saying that he was infact a cultist and wore a toga? He's supposed to
have been a mason, but they wear aprons.
THe founders were very big on imitating the romans and classical civilization. Washington was hailed as 'the american cinncinatus', for example.
And the government has a Senate and popular assembly, like rome. The fasces adore many monuments and are in the congressional chamber (senate chamber
no?). I've even read that the Founders originally intended to make the executive branch, rather than a presidency, a Consul, dual consuls
So a toga can't tell you anything. Sure, it would support, say, that GW was part of a roman mystery cult, or anything that could involve togas. But
thats the problem, it could be anything. What about that particular depiction of him in a toga indicates that its not just a sort of
'neo-classicism' style in art?
And, again, are you saying that there aren't any connections between the KT and Illuminati? OR at least that the 'Illuminati' is just an arbitrary
name thats generally accepted to mean 'the dark conspiracy'?
And what links between them can you establish then, other than to surmise that some templars might've survived their destruction, and that they
might've kept some hoards of wealth, and that they might've used that wealth somewhere at some time?
Aslo, and I forget at this point who exactly brought it up, but the 'Invisible Hand' of economics is not a secret society, its just a term Adam
Smith made up (or at least had been taught to use, don't know the history of usage there) for his book on economics, its not even an actual thing.
Thats what you are refereing to when you say 'hidden hand' of economics no?
Show the lack of connection between Eliphas Levi, George Washington's statue
You have not established a connection between them. How, indeed, can someone show a lack of connection anyway?
Excellent, i found the statue
You are kidding right? SO because its in a roughly similar pose to levi's baphomet, that means that levi's group was the one that commissioned or
designed it? When are you saying that they did this? Why was 'Horatio Greenough' involved in levi's group in 1840?
Notice, baphomet is not
wearing a toga. Its hand is in a different pose, even the raised arm is held at a completely different angle. The legs
are crossed and both hands are empty. Also, the symmetry between the upper left corner and lower right corner of the baphomet drawing is an integral
part of it 'as above so below' or some such, that symmetry and the other symbols are not incorporated into teh washington statue.
Geo W is wearing a toga, is sitting normally, his raised arm is much more pointed upwards and his hand is in a different position, both typical of
classical roman statuary, [not
that of baphomet. And in his other hand he holds a fasces, the roman symbol of the state. This is clearly a
depiction of washington as cinncinatus, handing back the Fasces, the power of the state, to return to his farmstead as a private citizen.
Here is a statue of augustus in a classical pose
here is a statue of cinncinatus, handing back the fasces (a modern statue tho)
