Corporate Logos as Occult Symbols - Part I
And there is nothing to fear if, in the first place, they preserve for us our gods that are common to both peoples and do not make them to belong to the Egyptians only, and do not include under these names the Nile alone and the land which the Nile waters, and do not assert that the marshes and the lotus are the only work of God's hand, and if they do not deny the great gods to the rest of mankind that possess no Nile nor Buto nor Memphis. But as for Isis, and the gods associated with her, all peoples own them and are familiar with them, although they have learned not so very long ago to call some of them by the names which come from the Egyptians; yet they have from the beginning understood and honoured the power which belongs to each one of them. - Source - Isis and Osiris
People oft need to stop and think. Who were the "tycoons" of yesteryear, especially as such pertains to the Western construct? Just your "average Joe"? No. More likely than not, they were a member of some "fraternal society", even as the traces of such are swept away only to be discovered later by the wayward travelling who peers into the more hidden ways of the world.
Do you really believe that the major personalities who were responsible for the backbone and fabric of what would become "the Western Construct" were NOT of some fraternal order?
If you believe that, well, ok. There is a class forming that teaches Creationism and Darwinism in the other hall. Feel free to sign-up.
This project is not about the perpetuation of political correct beliefs (inanities); it is a pursuit to arrive at the inherent philosophical truths as held by those who crafted and became "the Illuminatus".
Says Manley P. Hall in his treatise "Secret Teachings of All Ages", in his analysis on the Tarot Cards,
The Tarot cards were entrusted by the illumined hierophants of the Mysteries into the keeping of the foolish and the ignorant, thus becoming playthings--in many instances even instruments of vice. Man's evil habits therefore actually became the unconscious perpetuators of his philosophical precepts. "We must admire the wisdom of the Initiates," writes Papus, "who utilized vice and made it produce more beneficial results than virtue." Does not this act of the ancient priests itself afford proof that the entire mystery of the Tarot is wrapped up in the symbolism of its zero card? If knowledge was thus entrusted to fools, should it not be sought for in this card? Source - Secret Teachings of All Ages
Papus is a key player in the negative aspects of what become the "Dark Illuminatus" even as he provides us with a clear set of instructional material to penetrate and piece the underlying philosophy. One should read between the lines of his treatise called Qabalah.

Sort of appropriate, given the context, eh? How many of us have been "conquered" by tobacco?
Kind of makes you want to kick the Marlboro guys in the face, doesn't it?

So what we have here is you better convert to Christianity because cigs will send you to heaven the hard way.
