The Myth of the Illuminati

Of all the conspiracy theories prevalent in modern culture, one stands alone above all others. The story of the Illuminati is indeed a conspiracy, but it is not the one promoted by numerous authors, websites, books and videos.

The real conspiracy of the Illuminati is not one of an organisation who are the 'secret rulers of the world', intent on global domination and the enslavement of Mankind, but is in fact an attempt to create a new belief system, and it is the vehicle for some key elements of the new global religion. These include -
  • The Battle between Good V Evil
  • The Story of Creation
  • Religious Symbols
  • Forbidden Knowledge
In a world of scientific discovery and technological advancement, traditional religions are seen as out of touch with Modern Man's current level of understanding. A new belief system is needed, one whose teachings of the world around us can be accepted as plausible, and one whose core beliefs will allow society to accept as realistic and possible. A New Religion is being created with modern versions of key religious elements, and the idea of an all-pervasive organisation called the Illuminati is central to this thinking.

Good V Evil

People have always asked why their crops have failed, why their loved ones have died, and why the weather can be so unpredictable and severe. Religions have sought to provide an answer to these questions, helping to make sense of the world around us and they have often made use of an imaginary evil entity who is the enemy of Mankind.

Modern Man does not have a belief in traditional forms of evil such as the Devil, who is seen as nothing more than superstition, and if a new religion is to succeed, the Evil Enemy has to be seen to exist in reality.

The new Evil Enemy is the so called Illuminati, and the people who are said to form this group are the current ruling elite; the Monarchs of Europe, their distant relatives who arrived in the New World to create the Establishment of the United States, the heads of the world's major religions, and the institutions they all represent.

The Illuminati are said to be the cause for all bad that happens in the world, being held responsible for every disaster from oil slicks in the Gulf of Mexico to famine and disease in Africa, and from the eruption of volcanoes in Iceland to the depletion of bees throughout Europe and America.

Modern science however, continues to make giant strides in uncovering the real reasons for these occurrences, leaving traditional religious beliefs on these matters as outdated and implausible. The New Religion is clever though.

In a complete turn around, where science is signalling the end for traditional religions, the New Religion is fighting back and using science and technology as the reason for death, disease, famine and global disaster, and it is using the rise of technology to spread fear and anxiety.

The New Religion teaches that technology is being used to trigger earthquakes and floods, that computer chips are being developed which will help enslave Mankind, and that disease and famine are deliberately created by scientists and lab technicians working for the Illuminati.


The New Religion teaches that the Evil Enemy is the Illuminati, and it encourages it's followers to unite in the fight against this new perceived threat to Mankind.



The Story of Creation

The following passage from the bible, Genesis Chapter 6, is used by the New Religion to explain the existence of the Illuminati and to continue the promotion of the new Story of Creation (see  ET and the Creation of Man). The passage says -
"And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose"

Children of the Matrix
'How an Interdimensional Race
has controlled the world for
thousands of years-and still does'

Scholars and academics have various theories as to who the 'sons of God' and the 'daughters of men' refer to, with some claiming they are the offspring of Seth and of Cain, whilst others say they are references to 'godly' people and to 'sinful' and 'wicked' people. This uncertainty is used by the New Religion to offer it's own theory, and it is one which has successfully introduced the Reptilian agenda, which in turn is the foundation for many other aspects of the new global belief system.

The New Religion claims the 'Sons of God' were extra-terrestrials, in the form of Reptilians, and it was they who came to Earth and mated with 'daughters of men' to produce offspring who were half Reptilian/half Human hybrids. It is said these Reptilian/Human offspring were the origins of thirteen super-elite families who make up the members of the Illuminati.


This is the reason for the continuous propaganda about ancient bloodlines and Illuminati bloodlines which is promoted by the New Religion. Each time we hear of 'bloodlines' with regard to alternative world history, it is reinforcing the notion of ancient alien visitations and the creation of the supposed modern day Evil Enemy of the Illuminati.

When David Icke first published his theories on Reptilian Shapeshifters as the secret ruling elite of the world, it seemed totally absurd to most who heard it, but now this idea has caught on, showing the power of a continuous marketing campaign (see Selling the New Religion). The Reptilian Shapeshifter theory of the Illuminati has become a mainstay of the New Religion belief system.

This 'Reptilian Bloodline' propaganda is also playing a major role in the current anti-establishment campaign against the present day ruling elite and the institutions they represent (see Man Made Revolutions).

Symbols

celebrities
All religions need their own set of symbols and the New Religion is no different. These symbols are being marketed and promoted through the Internet, through music videos, computer games, Hollywood movies, magazines, and every other form of mass media and entertainment aimed primarily at youth culture. It is this age group who are being conditioned most to accept these symbols as commonplace (see The Eye and the Pyramid).

The symbols of the New Religion, such as the Pyramid, and the re-introduced Eye of Providence, are being sold on claims they are the symbols of the Illuminati. We are told the Illuminati use these symbols to advertise themselves and their intentions of evil, much in the same way as pirates would use the skull and crossbones.

This is not the case though. There are other reasons why we see more and more of these symbols. As well as placing these symbols in the public consciousness, we are also told the symbols themselves are not evil, it is only the intentions of those they represent which are evil. In this way, we will slowly be encouraged to adopt these symbols for ourselves, to represent good, and to show our loving intentions by using them and displaying them. They will become the symbols of the New Religion and they will be worn and displayed with pride by the faithful.

Forbidden Knowledge

The Quest for Knowledge
The Illuminati are the supposed holders of an ancient and secret knowledge which has helped them achieve and retain power for their own benefit. The New Religion continually urges it's followers to seek this knowledge, which has been suppressed and hidden from us by the Illuminati. It is a knowledge which we have been forbidden to see, and this quest to seek this knowledge bears striking similarities to the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. And as the biblical version makes use of a reptile, in the form of the serpent, as the gateway to this knowledge, so too does the New Religion with the reptilian Illuminati.

This suppressed, forbidden knowledge is often referred to as the 'Truth', a term used many times by religions over the years, and of course this Truth will be one carefully selected by the New Religion and sold as the knowledge which will allow us to defeat the evil Illuminati and the knowledge we shall live our lives by.

Religious Magic and Ritual

Religion, magic and magical thinking have always been deeply connected, and the New Religion is continuing this theme by attaching the practice of occult ritual to the Illuminati.

Shamans of the earliest communities would make contact with the spirit world, and after moving from nomad groups of hunter gatherers to static agricultural groups, the shamans became the priestly caste and continued their rituals at fixed sites of worship. The rituals became organised by the priests and they soon developed into formal religious practices.

Rituals were observed, and supplications, prayers, and sacrifices were offered to the gods to ask for favour, and if, for example, it started to rain, this would be seen as the effect of the offerings or prayers. People have always looked for a cause to an effect, and it is this which has formed the basis of magical thinking.

Civilisations throughout history have continued these practices and in more recent times, the Prophets of the Abrahimic religions performed magic which the churches have branded as miracles. Magical thinking has continued with rituals such as prayer, Christening ceremonies, and attaching and transferring holiness to objects, buildings, boats, and artifacts, a practice which was prevalent in the middle ages as a cure-all for disease and bad fortune. Holy water is still used in this way.

The Illuminati are continually portrayed as taking part in magical rituals through their supposed use of occult practices.

Whether they're worshipping at Bohemian Grove, casting spells on the public through MTV music videos, or involved in the killings of JFK and Princess Diana in sacrificial magical rituals, the Illuminati are portrayed as being the cause of much of the world's ills.

The death of Princess Diana is promoted by the New Religion as being a ritual sacrifice by the Illuminati, and this idea is becoming a recurring theme. When put together with the magical thinking of numerology, the occult practices of the Illuminati become the cause of virtually any tragedy or natural disaster.

The belief in the power of numerology is such that all numbers have a unique energy attached to them, an individual meaning. In this way, any date of any year can also be claimed to have particular significance, depending on the numbers contained in the dates and so any tragedy or natural disaster can be sold as being the work of the Illuminati practicing their occult magic. There is no bigger example of this than the attacks on the Twin Towers and on the London Underground.

the attacks on the Twin Towers

The attacks in New York occurred on September 11 with the attacks on London occurring on July 7. These atrocities were soon being marketed as 9/11 and 7/7. These numbers are said by the New Religion to hold special significance to the Illuminati, and the attacks have been portrayed as sacrificial rituals.

The dates of '9/11' and '7/7' will be added to that of '21/12/2012' as important dates of the New Religion (see 2012, Technology and a New Consciousness).

The 'Slaughter of the Innocents' by King Herod has become a feast day of Christianity, with the victims of the purge being seen by some as the first Christian martyrs. It's likely the events in New York and in London will in time become feast days of the New Religion, and the victims of these two terrible crimes will also be remembered in the same way.



Fear The Illuminati !

“Religion is based primarily upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly as the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. Fear of the mysterious, fear of defeat, fear of death.” - Bertrand Russell

Beyond Human

Beyond Human
Psychologists have found when people watch horror films, they have a natural fear of creatures which transcend what it means to be Human.

When the audience is monitored, it is recorded that creatures such as werewolves, vampires, and witches all activate the part of the Human brain which reacts to fear, and it is because these creatures are all in Human form, plus part other, which is the mechanism to trigger this fear.


These part Human creatures are all designed to play on this fear, and so it is with the Reptilian Shapeshifting Illuminati. The New Religion creates this fear, and will then act the part of the elder brother, described by Bertrand Russell, to be there to offer comfort, support and the all-important instruction on how to defeat them.


Mixing Fact With Fiction


Guerrilla Ontology


Author Robert Anton Wilson is the King of conspiracy fiction, a genre of thriller where the plot often uncovers a vast conspiracy which goes right to the top of society and government. The story can go on to reveal a 'secret history' of world events which has been suppressed, or deliberately ignored, by mainstream history involving different groups fighting to take control; Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code being a modern example.



Fact or Fiction?
Illuminati Puppets or
Tool for PR?

Wilson used a practice which he coined 'Guerrilla Ontology', the purpose of which was to leave the reader confused as to what was fact and what was fiction. Wilson said,
"Ontology is the study of being; the guerrilla approach is to so mix the elements of each book that the reader must decide on each page 'How much of this is real and how much is a put-on?'"

The New Religion makes full use of this guerrilla ontology. It specialises in mixing fact with fiction to blur the lines between truth and reality, leaving it's followers with a totally confused worldview. This technique is used to form every element of the new belief system, and non more so than in the story of the Illuminati.


The Illuminatus! Trilogy

Advertised as a 'Fairytale for Paranoids' the 'Illuminatus! Trilogy', written by Robert Shea and Robert Anton Wilson, is a collection of three novels titled, 'The Eye in the Pyramid', 'The Golden Apple' and 'Leviathan'.

The idea for the books came to the authors while they were working as editors for Playboy Magazine. After receiving many letters regarding civil liberties by readers convinced they were the victims of any number of global conspiracies, the two men decided to write a novel containing every single conspiracy these letters contained. Wilson said in an interview -

"...we created an opposition within the Discordian Society, which we called the Bavarian Illuminati [...] There were several Discordian newsletters written in the 1960s, and several Discordian members wrote for the underground press in various parts of the country. So, we built up this myth about the warfare between the Discordian Society and the Illuminati for quite a while, until one day Bob Shea said to me, "You know, we could write a novel about this!""
And that's what they did. The two editors from Playboy Magazine set about writing the Illuminatus! Trilogy; a mix of fact, fiction, science fiction, sex, magic and conspiracies. The Illuminatus! Trilogy features a group called the Bavarian Illuminati, headed by a man named Adam Weishaupt. This was based on an actual group called the Order of The Illuminati, formed in Eighteenth Century Bavaria, also led by a man named Adam Weishaupt. The Adam Weishaupt of the Illuminatus! Trilogy went on to murder George Washington and to replace him as part of a global conspiracy. It is in this way Shea and Wilson mixed fact with fiction, and it is in this way the New Religion does the same.

Adam Weishaupt Turns in His Grave

One man in particular has found fame with regards to the Illuminati, and that man is Adam Weishaupt.

Weishaupt was the founder of the Order of Illuminati in Bavaria in 1776. The order was formed in the Age of Reason, the Enlightenment (hence the name 'Illuminati'), an eighteenth century cultural movement whose aim was the advancement of knowledge to the public using reason and logic.

The order also had another aim; the abolition of all monarchical governments and state religions in Europe and it's colonies, and it was for this reason the Order of Illuminati was banned by the Elector of Bavaria in 1784. Weishaupt fled north to Gotha, where he died in 1830.

This is not the same story as the Adam Weishaupt who is promoted by the New Religion as the founder of the Bavarian Illuminati, the supposed evil organisation which has spread throughout the world and whose aim is the total enslavement of Humanity. That Adam Weishaupt is based more on the fictional character who appears in Robert Anton Wilson's Illuminatus! Trilogy, the 'Fairytale for Paranoids'.

The New Religion also doesn't seem to mind contradicting itself with two different versions of the Illuminati; the Reptilian Shapeshifting version from pre-biblical times created by visiting extra-terrestrials, and the one formed by Adam Weishaupt in Bavaria in 1776. This though, is a classic tactic of the New Religion to promote it's new version of world history. Like the guerrilla ontology of Robert Anton Wilson, it mixes fact with fiction to leave it's followers confused and unsure of reality.

The real Adam Weishaupt believed in a philosophy of natural religion, Deism, through reason and observation of the natural world, and he wished to see the end of man-made organised religions. It is with great irony then, that the myth of the man himself is used as the platform to achieve exactly that which he wished to abolish.

"Oh Mortal Man, is there anything you can not be made to believe?" - Adam Weishaupt
