A good friend of mine dave, someone whom I would say is a little over the top somtimes showed me this the other day and it made me curious.
On the back of the one dollar bill are present, two illustrations, that make up "the great seal of the United States." What my frind dave did is
outline in pencil the pyramid on the left pannel, this should make a triangle (duh) Draw a line across the bottom of the raised "cope stone" (from
the bottom of the "A" to the bottom of the "S") Then create an inverted triangle (using this line as the base) and the missing vertex should come
to just above the "O." It should look like the star of david (6 points). This is a masonic symbol, representing the two sides of being, male and
female, heaven and earth, basically a symbol of the perfect balance.
You will notice that there is a triangle perfectly outlining the elevated "cope stone," containing the all seeing eye of Horus. You will notice that
all the other verticies point to letters in the phrases "annuit coeptis" and "Novus Ordo Seclorum." these letters are A,S,N,O,M; which could be
used to spell "MASON"
Moving to the right panel we see an eagle. On the eagle's left wing there are thirty two feathers (had to buy some reading glasses for this one) on
its right wing there are thirty-three. Is this symbolic of the 32nd, and 33rd degrees of freemasonry?
Above the eagle's head there is another six pointed star, formed by an arrangement of pentagrams (no it doesn't mean ther are ties to the devil, it
is just a five pointed star) Both of which have meaning as symbols in masonic rituals and rites. In this arrangement, formed by two equilateral
traingles with an extra star in the middle, 13 altogether. Is this symbolic of the sun and the twelve zodiacs? Not to mention the thirteen leaves on
the olive branch or the thirteen arrows in its talons, oh and the thirteen stripes on the flag. I know someone is going to lay into me saying it
represents the thirteen colonies, but seriously that many repetitions of the number, hard to deny it might mean something different.
Moving on to the tail feathers, there are nine of them. Nine is the masons' sacred number squared. Three is sacred because it represents the
addition of one plus two, male plus female, god plus man, the unversal harmony. The fact that the number is in its squared form adds signifcane to it
making it even more significant and perfect.
Does this seem significant to anyone else, or am I just going crazy from studying too much, and not enough sleep?
