From jhdaugh@mail.msen.com Thu Aug 25 05:58:05 1994 Date: Thu, 25 Aug 94 05:38 EDT From: James Daugherty Reply to: prj@mail.msen.com To: prj@mail.msen.com Subject: Illuminati.misc2 From: harlot@cco.caltech.edu (Munir Bhatti) Yes, the Illuminaturn was a small, secretive group in Sweden, but few are familiar with what they accomplished. It can be argued that they had no lasting effect on the globe, and so were not a successful Illuminatus. My concept of Illuminati is any small group of people that effects great change and/or has great power over the world. Jesus and his small group of twelve could be considered an Illuminatus. They were a small group of people that used concepts (rather than, say, weapons) to create tremendous change. The also remained in control of the movement of they created. If one believes, then one can also say that they had the backing of a super-human entity (God) and thus were truly an Illuminatus group by most conceptions of the word. Jesus and his band of 12, however, were not secretive at all, and this seems to disagree with my conception of Illuminatus. The Illuminatus is the 'unseen hand' that pulls the global strings, making everyone dance like marionettes in the power of the Illuminatus. It is essential for the Illuminatus' control, however, that people are not aware of this control. For, as we all know, people resent being controlled without their consent. This is not to say that some individuals have waived their personal freedom to acquire a more powerful position in the world scheme. To reword, the individual voluntarily becomes a dominion of the Illuminatus, and lives the waking hours as an agent for the Illuminatus, forwarding the Illuminatus' agenda. This is fulfilling for the individual, since he sees that his actions fit into a global whole. It is also fulfilling for the Illuminatus. Let's say, looking at the current and ever-present chaos in the world, that we assume that there are at least two Illuminati fighting for the domination of the world. This would do much to explain the current state of the world. These Illuminati may have public facades which do not reflect their real roles in the world. Just as a crimelord of organized crime may go years without personally committing a crime, he orders scads of murders, thefts, beatings, etc. while maintaining the facade of a law-respecting businessman. The Illuminati may use a conglomeration of companies, say, to secretly raise the price of grain or oil on a worldwide scale. The Illuminatus might organize countries to pit their strength against an emerging country to snuff it. Governments rise and fall, companies come and go, clubs gain members and lose members, but an Illuminatus maintains existence over hundreds of human lifetimes. Although no group of a few people can constitute an Illuminatus, a small, powerful group of people can become a segment in the body of the Illuminatus, which spans the decades and centuries. Churches (Christian, Catholic, Muslim, Hindu, Bhuddist, Shinto) fulfill this requirement of existence over hundreds of human lifetimes. Most of these religions also fulfill the small group and secrecy requirements, as most of these religions accept some form of single high-preist leader or oligarchy and these leaders are usually not well-known to people outside the religious group. In regard to control of the world, then, I argue that most religions constitute Illuminati and that their expansion & influence over the years constitute the actions of these Illuminati. The lead council of a powerful nation, if it exists long enough, can constitute on segment in the body of an Illuminatus. The council that were their predecessors was the previous segment, and the next council to follow the present council is the next segment of the Illuminatus. Just as with a Millipede, it would be very difficult to guess what the action of the whole Illuminatus is while looking at just one segment. Looking at one segment of a millipede and seeing the legs of that segment kicking around, for example, it would be impossible to guess(without more information), whether the millipede is: *Falling *Being born *Being picked up, and rescued from danger. *Being killed Please don't take this millipede analogy too far, as it is possible to take all analogies to far. It's a little crazy, really to compare something as encompassing as an Illuminati to something as tiny as a Millipede. I think I'll open this up for comments now. Who groups do you think consititute an Illuminatus over the years, what do they consist of, and what do they control? I think these are all good thoughts to ponder on. munir bhatti (harlot@alumni.caltech.edu) From: lenb@dvorak.amd.com (Len Bucavalas) In article <11031993.002456@playgrnd.cts.com>, Richard Winters wrote: >Re: Re: The Alumbrados... and history > >> Mr J L Saunders wrote: >> > >> >These two groups are of a religious nature whereas our esteemed american >> >colleagues would like to point out illuminati influences in the initial star >> >of their country.

Also the stars are in the shape of the Star of David, the sign of the Israeli state. Also there are 13 arrows clutched in the "left" claw. You will also notice that the eagle itself is simply a clevely disguised Star of David. On the front of the bill surrounding each numeric figure, totalled, there are 10 leaves per side for a total of 20. In Numerology, 20 = 2+0 = 2. Add in the ones on a one dollar bill...there are four of them, you get a total of 6...the number of man...ad reductum from 666 the number of the beast. Allegedly it is not George Washington but rather the man who founded not only the Masons in America but also the KKK Albert Pike (is that his name??? I forget!)............
