Ad campaigns have an odd habit these days of throwing disturbing levels of arcane imagery at us . I recall the ad campaign for 63336 which was a
mobile phone utility which when asked a question, would text or call you with the answer. It featured a series of people , all speaking from the same
script in a monotone voice. It all came across as a bit cultist, a bit like bumping into an acolyte of Apollyon at a pub quiz if Im honest.
Then you have that viral internet ad for Dan Brown's The Lost Symbol (I think it was that book, rather than angels and deamons.... cannot recall
precisely) which featured a game, whereby you had to decode this puzzle, by figuring out which symbols were relavent and which were not, then putting
them in the correct order to produce the final code. Of course it only explained that it was advertising right at the very end , but to have missed
that , you would have had to play it with your eyes shut (which would actualy only have been marginaly harder than it was originaly). Now those
symbols included masonic, satanic, muslim, christian and eastern marks in bewildering combination.
Personaly I think the presence of symbology in this day and age, might be a subconcious reaction to the fact that we live in such a godforsaken wreck
of an age, and have forgotten the old ways of even the faiths we still profess to hold dear, as well as those that many have forgotten even existed.
