Illuminati Card: "Tape Runs Out..." An Interpretation

The Illuminati Card Game card entitled. "Tape Runs Out..." is one of the most perplexing in the deck. It's meaning is cryptic and symbolic with no identifiable landmarks, etc. The wording of the card "...When the Rapture comes, I'll make 'em wait! They'll never clean my cage! Now give me some more of..." (Tape runs out.)

The tape is the key to deciphering the meaning and there could be multiple meanings that are synonymous. For example, we measure distance with a tape measure and if we consider that on a graph the vector for time is the "y" axis then we could measure time linearly (as we do for "x"). Carrying the linear metaphor further....when the tape (measure) runs out we are at the end of the line....time is up! Another interpretation is that earlier computers were run with magnetic tapes...again when the tape stops and breaks the computer stops...and along with the computers (mainframes that run our infrastructure and national defense) our society. Another interpretation for tape is the tape at the finish line for a race....the first one to cross the finish line "breaks the tape" (endgame decided - we have a winner and everyone else loses).

I think that that "tape" has a dual meaning: 1) time as alluded to in the interpretation above. 2) the spinning of the earth (from the turning of the tape wheel). When the "Day of the Lord"/Pole Shift/Great Earthquake occurs the earth will probably stop spinning (tape runs out and breaks) and there will be a great crack (fissure) in the earth as a result of the sudden stoppage of the earth's spin on the axis.

As to the wording on the tape....I think that the card is trying to imply that the Christian Rapture will take place at the time of this Great Catastrophe but the narrator is saying that he is not going which is a euphemism for not dying (NWO plot to explain the mass deaths as "the rapture" perhaps?). He speaks for most of mankind who will be in internment camps across the world at the time (not just fema sponsored camps in the us) as a) the globe shows a different part of the world than the us and b) the word ''cage'' implies a jail or prison cell. And what do you do when a caged animal dies? You clean it;s cage. He says you'll never clean his cage which means he doesn't plan to die...and then he demands more (probably food) when the tape stops. I think this is the collective wisdom of those in camps who are expecting a Fake Rapture to cover up millions if not billions of deaths.....but you cant fake the earth stopping and cracking wide open which is what could happen. Those are my initial thoughts anyway. Anyone else care to take a "crack" at it?

The Image of the Card did not post....(any tips on how to do so would be appreciated) but most ATSers are familiar with the Tape Runs Out card and if not or you want to refresh there are several threads on the Illuminati Cards that show it....Tape_runs_out.jpg

note the glacier covering the stans?
try ""
we are about to enter a regular glaciation
time stops frozen...

also according to piers corbin we are about to enter glaciation
he is the guy from actionweather he is the only accurate long range weather forecaster.

this will kill a lot 85 percent
or is the reason to kill 85 percent

while the illuminaty will live on to use bill gate's seed vault when the ice melts ...

Those ice caps do look pretty thick.....maybe it will be by fire (magma from within) and ice (from the polar caps).

i was looking at this card just the other day and i likened the earth splitting and and tape runs out title to pole shift. i dont believe the earth will physically split but maybe the image is just a hint at big catastrophe? my interpretation of the text was the people talking to the NWO, as if to say you will never get me, but whether or not they get us, we are f'd anyway when the poles shift. just my take on it. ALSO the text ends with "now gimme some more.....tape runs out" another thing that makes me think its a generalized quote from the generalized greedy and artificially entitled people

We are pretty much on the same page....Pole Shift causing massive earthquakes and the tape (time) stopping and people talking back to the NWO when it happens. Altho I dont think that a rift or tear in the earth will be as big as depicted on the card....I dont doubt that it can happen on a smaller scale as part of the earthquake.

I think we need someone who can see the future and the past in comic books to explain this card

An extra theory to consider, is what if someone manage to secretly record say a meeting, and in this meeting a currently unknown person was talking about their plans for the fake rapture. But this recording was made a long time ago when only tape media was available, and while talking "the tape runs out".

Let's throw an extra theory in that the recording was not of a human meeting but rather an inhuman meeting

It looks like the planet is splitting in half on that card. Maybe its a representation of what the tidal forces of an incoming celestial body will do to Earth?
I really dont like this card game...

I am wondering if any of these Illuminati cards have parallels in the Tarot cards (any tarot experts out there)?

OP, you must be a young fella. See back in the day, we had to get up and walk across the room to change the TV channel - of which there were three, if you were expecting a call you had better be home, and unless you picked up a telephone, it might be a week before Aunt Gertrude gets the message that you're coming to visit.

We didn't have .mp3 players, iPods, laptops, and the like when we wanted to listen to music. What we did have (other than vinyl records, remember those?) were reel-to-reel tape decks just like the one pictured on the card. They can also convey information, music, recorded stories, and yes - data. Reel-to-reel tapes have been the mainstay if information storage since the end of WWII.

I realize all of the other devices can do the same thing, I just wanted to point out what the device on the card actually was. That info may have bearing on what the card is trying to say.

As far as the crack in the world: When Christ returns, he will do so on the Mount of Olives. The Bible says that the Earth will split beneath His feet, and the mountain will be cleaved in two. Please note the location of the crack on the card: straight through Israel.

Lastly, even the Illuminati - followers of the "Illuminated one," Satan, know how it will turn out for them when Christ returns. Look at what the card does. There is no other card that can defeat the "rapture card." It negates ANY card on which it is played. At least that's what I get out of what is printed on the card, as I've never played the game.

*Sorry for the early sarcasm. I just couldn't believe you left out the only machine it really is.

Actually, if you look at it from a "gameplayer's" point of view I would say that he was asking for some more drugs. "good try," it's a joke I'd guess. From conspiracy theorists point of view though, I have several things to add. First, notice the end of the tape, it's glowing over China. Second, I think that the tape is also a symbol for Time. Third, I think it's strange that the Earth isn't just splitting in two. It looks like it's been cleaved and the center is beginning to burst out. Too bad hardly anything gets recorded on tapes like that these days. I think that's all I've got.

There is also the possibility that the Mayan Stelae which shows the 16.4 billion year time frame, with progressively shorter periods "pyramided" and the last one 280 days, and all nine steps terminating together (as the evolution of Consciousness) and ending simultaneously at some point right about now (some say Oct. 28, 2011, some say Dec. 21,2012...).

If it is a cosmic program...the tape runs out.

I was wondering the same thing. There are what, 333 cards in the Illuminati Deck? I have only seen like 9 of them. There are 72 cards in a Tarot deck that are divided into suits that correlate to clubs, hearts, spades and diamonds; wands, cups, swords and pentacles. Thenthere is an additional smaller deck incorporated called the Higher Arcana. These cards start with the Fool, 0 and ends with the World card 22. It represents the Fool's journey through life.

Tarot cards are representations of mythical and true stories. Some represent the quest of Alexander the Great, some represent biblical tales, some represent King Author and the Holy Grail quest. The are embedded with symbolism of various religions, planetary attributes, nemerology and alphabets. We look at these cards for insight into our own quests, and at times, to discern the future.

The "Terror Nuke" card, or whatever its called, looks a lot like the Tower card. (sorry, I dont know how to post a picture just yet) but the Tower card always depicts a lightening bolt and an eye of awareness, while the Illuminati card seems to promote a hidden conspiracy of unkown origin, to the victims. It should be said that there are no "bad" cards in a Tarot deck because they all have dual meanings or opposite realities embedded within them.

In my opinion the Illuminati deck is taken from the Bible, specifically Revelations. I think there is a religious plot afoot to pull off an "Armageddon" scenerio and the cards depict that. I don't think these cards would be very good for reflecting on ones spiritual progress or the probable future of you love life or career. IMO

The Illuminati cards are NOT fortune telling cards. They are not based on regular playing cards. And they are based on Tarot or any other mystical card system. It's simply a card game similar to Magic: The Gathering, Yu-Gi-Oh, and Pokemon. I will admit the imagery is a little creepy considering when it was printed in relation to events of the last decade. But other than that, it's just a game.

The text on the card is a quote from the Church of the Sub-Genius circa 1980.

Here is the full original context for 'Tape Runs Out' quote

Here's the part with the quote, which also ends the piece:

I am a god damn visionary, I see the future and the past in comic books and wine bottles; I eat black holes for breakfast! I bend my genes and whittle my DNA with the sheer force of my mighty will! I steer my own god damn evolution! I ran 'em out of Heaven and sold it to Hell for a profit! I'm enlightened, I achieved `Nirvana' and took it home with me. Yip, yip, YEEEEEEE! I'm so ugly the Speed of Light can't slow me down and Gravity won't tug at my cuffs! When the Rapture comes, I'll make 'em wait! They'll never clean my cage! Now give me some more of..." (Tape runs out.)

I agree. Why is everyone still freaked out by this card game?

How 'bout -

A. Steve Jackson (having inside information) creates a card game, that exposes these Illuminati plans to take over the world, in order to warn others to prevent these future events from happening, (but fails miserably).


B. Steve Jackson (the geek gamer) creates a card game for profit.

I see the people of earth trapped in a cage (earth) The Devil has been in charge for 2000 years because he was given the earth for a period of time and when the rapture comes he is going to fight it. "They will never clean my cage"

The tape flips over and points to Japan!!!!

This is the beginning of the end - Middle East Tensions will lead to WW111

Don't know where the hell these thoughts came from - they just came! Very Strongly!

The Globe is split in half - more or less saying 'two world will clash' Two Religions!

Stop making stuff up guys. All of these Illuminati cards' pictures have all been nearly accurate to events that have actually occurred. Therefore, this picture resembles, or should closely resemble the upcoming catastrophe and by simple deduction it looks like this is the "End" or the ''Dec.2012" date.

The only thing that should be speculated is the Tape. As technology has since advanced since this card game was made. And probably the imagery since this is the rapture card...

As for my take. Look at the edited image I made. Looks like Jesus is in space...probably showing where all good people are gonna go. Into a higher dimension. Now look at the Earth...and the mean face...the evil will stay there.
