While I was reading the thread about Awolnation's song "Sail" (www.abovetopsecret.com...
), a question came up that has
been in my mind for the longest time, and always gets the gears turning whenever I read a thread on the subject of the Illuminati.
I don't see why it all has to be connected to the Illuminati. It's symbolism. There has been symbolism in pop culture for ages. They want a
theme, their music videos have to have something visually stimulating. It could be Egyptian, Native American, Religious, etc. Granted, sometimes it
could be pushed onto the musicians by "their people", but that certainly can't be the case all the time, the artists have their creative input as
well, they can't all be puppets. The guy is probably a conspiracy nut just like us. If I was in a band, I'm sure I'd make reference to esoteric
topics as well. Say I released an album, and put the Eye of Horus on the front, what does that mean? I know what the Eye of Horus represents, but
so what? What does that mean to someone who looks at it all from the "Illuminati are controlling everything" angle? What am I trying to do? Or
what is the Illuminati trying to do through me?
I guess for me, it's a hard sell, I don't know why the Illuminati would use well known symbolism to communicate secretly, or push an agenda. It'd
be wasted on everyone who was unaware, and would be incredibly transparent to those who do follow these kinds of subjects. Am I missing some of the
more subtle points of how this whole secret society thing is supposed to work? I understand the concept of being hidden in plain sight and all
that...but really? Isn't it more likely that this symbolism showing up in music videos, advertising, and so on, is just the work of some pencil
pusher who's trying to meet a deadline and get their job done? To me, that's what the whole Super Bowl half time show looked like this last time
If this sounds like the typical skeptic thread, forgive me. I'm actually sincerely curious about this. I believe in these types of shadowy
organizations, but I guess just not how everyone else seems to, as cackling business men moving their pop culture pawns around for some larger,
