This came to me today as a press release. The interesting part was that there was no text--no write up. Just the caption and the picture. The caption read:

"Paul McCartney, Jay-Z, and Kanye West Meet at the 2011 Costume Institute Gala at the Met."

That's all. Nothing else. This would have just passed me by as another music related press release were it not for three things:

1) No write up. As if the fact that they met was such big news that nothing else needed saying. Kanye and Jay-Z have obviously met before and collaborated together.

Paul and Jay-Z performed together at the Grammys in 2006

www.contactmusic.com...

And Paul hung out with Kanye at least once in 2010:



www.nogoodforme.com...

So why is it such a newsworthy event that they met at the Met?

2) All three of them are reported to be part of the Illuminati

3) Check out Paul's hand sign pointing up and Kanye's same hand sign pointing down.



Granted the Illuminati and Freemasons are not equivocal, but considering that they share the same symbolism...



The 12 Masonic Signs of Recognition

I suppose it could just be coincidence, but those hand signs just look too intentional. And again, why is it such big news that they met at the Met to deserve a press release?

This is the kind of crap that makes it so easy for people to disagree with questioning authority and make people that do question authority out to be delusional. All this b.s. comes from nothing but scared christians.

It's the sign for "as is above so is below."
It's an old phrase, mostly tied to satanism.
Peace!

You obviously don't know anything about that phrase.
"as above so below" has been around a lot longer than "satan"
Once again, promoting scared christians.

Jay Z looks like he has Downes and Kanye is in the closet

If I'm in the Illuminati, I'd get Bono on board. With all the good he does around the world he'd be the real asset

First of all, I am not a Christian and I am not scared (I actually find the Christian conspiracy theorists to be quite funny.) I have a heavy background in esoteric and occult studies including OTO and Rosicrucianism amongst others. So...

I know that:



It's the sign for "as is above so is below." It's an old phrase, mostly tied to satanism.


However, Fuzzmonster, I also know that it was used as part of Thoth's Emerald Tablets and it is not mostly tied to Satanism. It is a universal truth tied, in part, to sacred geometry and the notion that the patterns that build galaxies are also the same patterns that build our cells. It goes deeper than that, but this is one level. But, it is also used as part of the negative occultic symbolism as well.

So explain to me why it was such big news to deserve a press release that consisted of nothing but the picture and a statement of their meeting. That was my real point with the OP.

I don't think those guys are Illuminati, but see, sometimes people who start pulling in the millions, they have to do something that makes them a valuable tool to tptb.

If they sing music lyrics that normalize the abnormal values that the Elites need people to uphold to lose personal integrity and give up their rights and spiritual values and think like sheep, then that is a good enough contribution that aids the ultimate aims of the wealthy people who want to control this world and have say in who should live and die.

I never called you a scared christian. They are the ones that promote all this crap all over youtube. I should have clarified that. Yes these guys belong to a society. It's the "I'm a spoiled successful rich musician" club and nothing more. I'm sure they study the occult like you and I just because it makes for good lyrics.
If you are so into studying things like Order of the Rose Cross and O.T.O, why are you wasting your time on this nonsense?

My bad, I guess I accepted ignorance. I have seen the phrase before but I'm new to this sort of thing and I don't have quite the same background info as you, I'll read up on those tablets. I wouldn't have even known there was a handsign for it if somebody hadn't posted a Bin Laden post about it earlier today.

I didn't take personal offense, I recognize where your comment came from. However, it's precisely because I have studied the symbolism that I recognize it and find it fascinating when it shows up in public places. Then you have Jay-Z doing the All Seeing Eye thing and Kanye with his lyrical symbolism-Vigilant Citizen did an great piece on that thing between him and Taylor Swift being part of a ritual. I also heard an interesting interview on NPR's Fresh Air with Jay-Z that was full of symbolism, but that is a story for another day (I'll leave out the Youtube vids of McCartney as a Reptilian.) That's always been an thought-provoking line for me: What is an artist putting out the symbols because it is a "cool" and "popular" meme? And what is an artist flashing the symbols to indicate that they belong to a certain group? I suppose you could make good arguments on either side. I wasn't really saying one thing or the other with the OP, just that given the reported background of all 3 people the symbolism was interesting and the press release was essentially pointless (I see a lot of press releases in any given day.)

Perhaps you've heard it more often as
“…on Earth as it is in Heaven, Amen.”

Well done sir. And an excellent reminder. Symbols are neutral and their use depends on intent. Positively oriented beings use the same symbols as negatively oriented ones (for instance the Nazi Swastika is an Indian Sun/Peace sign that has been rotated.) As someone from another thread put it:




black magic...is actually symbolism and ritualistic steps to communicate between the densities. This same kind of symbolism is used by positively oriented entities.

In a lot of modern pop there seems to be a semiotic vocabulary of gestures, symbols, and lyrical content directly referencing hermetic magic that stand out to me even though I've only been researching the topic of esoterica for a few months.

These three guys? Flash that stuff around like it's their job.

Also, if I buy into any conspiracy lock stock and barrel, it's the "Paul is Dead" one. Alarming forensic evidence with facial comparisons.

What folks often miss when addressing this topic from the skeptic angle is that regardless of whether you believe in the esoteric, there seems to be a mountain of data that indicates that they certainly do.

If he is an Illuminati or a Mason then why is he using he left hand when the other illustration clearly shows the right hand? On a personal note I would not like Paul McCartney any less if anyone could somehow prove he was part of a fictional orginization, the guy is a brilliant musician.

Because that was the only illustration I could find. Ever hear of the "left-hand path?"


The terms Left-Hand Path and Right-Hand Path are a dichotomy between two opposing philosophies found in the Western Esoteric Tradition, which itself covers various groups involved in the occult and ceremonial magic. In some definitions, the Left-Hand Path is equated with malicious Black Magic and the Right-Hand Path with beneficial White Magic.[1] Other occultists have criticised this definition, believing that the Left-Right dichotomy refers merely to different kinds of working, and does not necessarily connote good or bad magical actions.[2] In more recent definitions, which base themselves on the terms' origins amongst Indian Tantra, the Right-Hand Path, or RHP, is seen as a definition for those magical groups which follow specific ethical codes and adopt social convention, while the Left-Hand Path adopts the opposite attitude, espousing the breaking of taboo and the abandoning of set morality.


en.wikipedia.org...

Also, there is nothing fictional about the Illuminati/PTB. And on a personal note, I love the Beatles too (and to a lesser extent Wings and Paul's solos work on songs like "Uncle Albert")

So the only illustration you could find disagrees with you, but you're still talking about it as though it's settled.

Obviously, there are powers that are being, and the Illuminati are not fictional in that they did exist, but the attempt to link them to anything and everything popular usually contains a truckload of nonsense.

It doesn't disagree with me, it is just an illustration from the "Right Hand Path." Again, have you ever heard of the "Left Hand Path?" Both Kanye and Paul are using their left hands.

And I'm not saying it's settled. I'm saying "This is interesting." If there wasn't all sorts of stuff already out there suggesting that the 3 of them belong to the same PTB club, I would have noticed the esoteric hand signs and let it go. It is the combination of things, as I said in the OP, that has piqued my interest.

The illustration indicates that the symbol means 'OK'. What does the alleged symbol that McCartney is making supposedly mean?


Also, there is nothing fictional about the Illuminati...


They are completely fictional in the sense that they ceased to exist in the 18th Century and anyone claiming to be a member is full of crap.
