Bzzt. Thanks for playing. The idea that an eye in an unfinished pyramid was a symbol of the Bavarian Illuminati is a hoax that began around 1956 and was popularized by the conspiracy author William Guy Carr in his book Pawns in the Game. He doesn't cite any sources, and many other things in that book have later proven to be false, so it's hard to take anything he claims seriously.

The Eye In The Pyramid. The eye in the pyramid has been adopted by many different esoteric entities throughout history, including the eye of Horus (Osiris) in Egypt, and the All-Seeing Eye in Freemasonry. It also famously appears on the back of the U.S. dollar bill. Henry Wallace, who was instrumental in having the seal placed on the dollar bill in 1935, had deep occult connections. It was a symbol of secret societies in Europe long before anyone heard of the United States and it is awash with Freemasonic and secret society symbolism going back to the ancient world. Adepts believe that when the capstone, the symbol of the secret societies, is lowered onto the top of the incomplete Pyramid, the Plan of the ages will be complete, the Novus Ordo Seclorum will be established, and the world ruler will be installed.

Actually, the Bavarian Illuminati are still in operation. There are some chambers here in Ingolstadt, and I am pretty certain there is a chamber in Munich. They are certainly not Masons, and tend to look down on us for some reason. The Landlord of the local bar I drink in is a member of the Ingolstadt Illuminati.
