The opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics displayed British life through the industrial revolution up until now – the modern era.

Throughout the whole act, the performance was overlooked by the large, intimidating yet subtle pyramid shaped flood lights.

What this was meant to represent was the illuminati’s rule over life. As all the attention was on the play, only a few noticed the large floodlights continuously looking down upon the stadium as a representation of the rulers of society.


The actual play itself contained various biblical references such as the prologue which included a performance of Edward Elgar's "Nimrod" followed by the anthem "Jerusalem". The act looked to be set in rural green area which could be esoterically interpreted as the Garden of Eden which included a tree which was meant to represent either the tree of life or the tree of knowledge. All the countries that where taking part eventually travelled into the garden.



Jerusalem

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?

And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among these dark satanic mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold;
Bring me my arrows of desire;
Bring me my spear; O clouds, unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire!

I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand,
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land.

The songs played throughout the ceremony contained esoteric lyrics and also songs used to indoctrinate society. Some of which include

"London Calling" by the Clash
"God Save the Queen” by ‘the Sex Pistols'
"Chariots of Fire" by Vangelis
"Going Underground" by the Jam

The opening ceremony of the London Olympics was dark and contained much more esoteric symbolism. There were references to ‘the lord of the rings’ and ‘harry potter’ which are known to contain a great amount of symbolism.


What I have covered here is just the tip of a very large iceberg. There are many, many more esoteric elements in regards to the opening ceremony and the entire Olympics. Make of it what you will.

Actually I was very suprised to see such a small amount of NWO symbolism during the opening ceremony.
The lighting pyramids that you claim so confidently are illuminati was nothing more than a sound engineering principle used to hold lights. They had it at the back overlooking all, because that is where lights need to be!!!.

As for your idea about the green and pleasant land scene.... I would be very suprised if the Garden Of Eden just happened to look like rural England of the 18th century.

I really think any talk of esoteric design in this particular event is really just a case of wishful thinking. For once they had a director that made a show of people power rather than the elite. His constant mentions to the achievements of the UK were all done by the people. Like the NHS using actually nurses. The industrial revolution done by the people. His obvious liberal and left wing slant on the ceremony must of come as a bit of a shock to the Tories who funded it. And followed in the great British tradition of giving those in power the two finger salute.

Now I know we were all expecting and looking for signs of NWO in the Olympics and there was plenty of that in the run up, but the actual opening ceremony itself was luckily hijacked by a humanist and a supporter of the 99%. Seeing this gave me and I hope many others a little chuckle inside.

Oh n btw you have got the song list wrong. It was not God Save The Queen by the Sex Pistols it was Pretty Vacant by the Sex Pistols.

Love the use of Going Underground. Did not interpret the lights as "looking down" but that is exactly what they are doing. Good catch on the symbolism. Interesting choice in Jerusalem and the "dark satanic mills".

The pyramid structure is most likely the most strongest structure to withstand any kind natural force.
there is nothing symbolic about it, its simply construcion!
Or, do you feel that you have found a true meaning to this kind of build?

NO,you haven't, its a design that can withstand most expected natural forces!

Why did you even think that you had something that was worth posting?

You're right - almost.

The pyramid on the back of the U.S dollar bill = Pyramid of Labor (Slave Labor)

Inferior, Superior, Supreme.

It represents a lot of things, of course - but in the above context it fits like a glove for the Olympics.

so why isnt everything built in the shape of a pyramid?

Just because a pyramid may be the strongest shape in nature does not mean that everything will be built in the shape of a pyramid. Why isnt the stadium the shape of a pyramid? why is my house not a shape of a pyramid?

Here are various, common designs used for stadium floodlights. as you can see, they do not need to be in the shape of a pyramid..




Now look at the lights on the london olympic stadium:

Its all an illusion just like the Mason in the dollar bill

The flood lights on the Olympic stadium is something I have noticed for a while now and then watching the opening ceremony, theres no denying the pyramid shaped lights have a real eery look to them as if they're looking down on the everyone, and the fact the ceremony showed off England's history, I couldn't help but think that the pyramid shaped flood lights was to symbolise the Illuminati's back door control in the entire process.

Take note that every football stadium (or soccer, if your on that side of the pond) I have ever been too all have roughly the same flood lights, the Olympic stadium is the first to ever have the pyramid shaped lights. I said this too a friend and he said "well it's supposed to be unique, why copy all the other stadiums?" which is a fair point, but I can't accept it's coincidence when the lights have such a undeniable resemblance to the all-seeing eye pyramid.

Apologies for the double post but the lights really do have a almost 'ruler' like stance over the stadium. Also, they just happened to be designed with the lights at the top of the pyramid? sorry, i'm convinced this is Illuminati symbolism at work. It's a shame, I hate to think of some back door power making sly references to their power right in front of the entire world like London is just a puppet show.

I am quite astonished how a minimal amount of people have noticed that the lights are in reference to our lives being overlooked by the powers that be.

At first, when watching the opening ceremony, my eyes were on the show when a friend of mine pointed out to me how the lights are looking down upon the people and the acts being performed within the stadium. Although I had known long before what the lights were meant to represent, they seemed to slip my mind when watching the opening ceremony, until of course, as I said, a friend had to remind me.

It just goes to show how they operate; in the dark, silently and discreetly.

As Shakespeare had said:

All the world's a stage,
And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,

I'm tired and too lazy but if you can post a link to the full opening ceremony, much appreciated

PS: is that a red rose or red carnation flower? That might help me on another thread

I really need to see that opening ceremony in full - even though I know what to expect of the Illuminati specticle

Just wanted to clarify something...

Those are triangles, not pyramids.

That is all.

You almost made milk shoot out my nose. A triangle suggestive of a pyramid, but a triangle nonetheless.

Think back to the Russel Crowe movie Gladiator... when the new emperor (Commodus Aurelius) is standing over the model of the new stadium.


quote.........

Commodus: Yes...the greatness of Rome. And what is that?

Lucilla: It's an idea. Greatness...greatness is a vision.

Commodus: Exactly, a vision. Do you not see, Lucilla? I WILL GIVE THE PEOPLE A VISION AND THEY WILL LOVE ME FOR IT. They will soon be tired of the sermonizing of a few, dry, old men. I will give them the greatest vision of their lives.
.........


It's a vision - given by the elites.
Part of the glory and splendour of the New Roman Empire on earth- enlightened Globalism.

In ancient Greece, birthplace of the concept of democracy and the democratic republic .. it was the Greek 'city states' used to gather together every four years for athletic competition.. All that's different today is that the 'city states' are now 'the nations'.. and the vision sold to the people is of a new global empire of enlightened democracy - NWO World Government etc.

Interesting thread, some good points there. I think the British are desperate in a sense.

As someone who worked on one of the animatoins shown live if the rest of the organisation was the same as the section I worked for was then it would be the same insane deadlines, things changed at the last minute, poeple with on idea what they were doing in charge of things that had no idea how to achieve and blind panic. So personaly I'd have a problem beliving that any large conspiracy was involved for those very reasons.

It wasn't the garden of Eden, it was Glastonbury tor.

No without flood lights, you'd be unable to see anything. Just because they are arranged in a triangular structure. We have road signs in the shape of triangles too.


The actual play itself contained various biblical references such as the prologue which included a performance of Edward Elgar's "Nimrod" followed by the anthem "Jerusalem". The act looked to be set in rural green area which could be esoterically interpreted as the Garden of Eden which included a tree which was meant to represent either the tree of life or the tree of knowledge. All the countries that where taking part eventually travelled into the garden.


Or the representation of a land pre-industry. You know before the mass de-forestation of the UK.


The songs played throughout the ceremony contained esoteric lyrics and also songs used to indoctrinate society. Some of which include

"London Calling" by the Clash
"God Save the Queen” by ‘the Sex Pistols'
"Chariots of Fire" by Vangelis
"Going Underground" by the Jam


Or the fact that it was directed by Danny Boyle and the soundtrack was mixed by a member of Underworld, both known for their left tendencies and thus more likely to put a famous british punk track into the mix.


There were references to ‘the lord of the rings’ and ‘harry potter’ which are known to contain a great amount of symbolism.


Or the fact that they were English authors.

Well, well. There really are some fertile imaginations out there. Where do we start?

The floodlights: they aren't meant to represent anything. They are there to provide light! So what if they are triangular. Get over it.

The choice of music: were "Bonkers" by Dizzee Rascal, "She Loves You" by The Beatles and "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton also chosen for their "esoteric lyrics and also songs used to indoctrinate society"?

The choice of Jerusalem: with its status as England's unofficial national anthem and its clear references to working conditions during the Industrial Revolution, it would have been a bigger surprise if they HADN'T used it.

The references to ‘the lord of the rings’ and ‘harry potter’: one of the key themes of the ceremony was the UK's contribution to children's literature. Does it get any bigger than "Harry Potter"? There were also references during the ceremony to "Wind in the Willows" and "Peter Pan". Perhaps I've missed the Illuminati connection to those, somewhere along the line.

Kateygirl: in what way do you "think the British are desperate in a sense".

Given the sheer volume of references used during the ceremony, it is no wonder people are seeing things that aren't there. You might have seen a conspiracy - the overwhelming majority of us simply saw a masterpiece.

The ceremony was nicely subversive!
The whole thing starts with, and continues being centred on, Glastonbury Tor. The site of England's post-reformation creation myth, for if Those feet did walk upon England's green mountains, then the country has been chosen by the God of the new testament.
Before that the spiritual authority of the nation was through Pope Gregory the Great, good, but Jesus is better.
At the coronation of the present Queen, this passage from The Book of Kings is declaimed; "Zadoc the Priest and Nathan the Prophet anointed Solomon King, and all the people rejoiced and said, God Save the King!" Yes, legitimacy is being claimed by succession from the Kings of Israel!
The New York Times commented on the ceremony; "Britain offered a display of humor and humbleness that can only stem from a deep-rooted sense of superiority." Well you can do that if you know that you are God's favourite!
But what happens next in the ceremony? The greensward is shown literally being rolled up and removed from under the feet of the inhabitants of the Garden. Who by? The invaders, the Norman yoke enclosing the land, taking Jerusalem from the people. The landscape is now dark and satanic, we now toil for them.
But it's not all bad, the British are shown, in a charmingly literal way, founding the Olympic games! The fact that the games weren't invented by the British is generally viewed as an irrelevant technicality.
And what is being celebrated next, not high culture, not kings and queens, not the military. About the only military uniforms in the history part of the ceremony were the Chelsea Pensioners and the Sgt. Pepper era Beatles.
Pop music, films, diversity, socialised medicine; it all seems to be chosen to annoy a specific group of people...
Yes the Queen had a starring role, but what happens to her? Thrown out of a helicopter by the working-class hero, James Bond.
'I will not cease from Mental Fight,
Nor shall my Sword sleep in my hand:
Till we have built Jerusalem,
In Englands green & pleasant Land.'
