while technically correct, some of these labels suggest a more sinister intent on the part of the designers than i believe is necessarily there.
point by point:
"annuit coeptis, novus ordo seclorum" is often pointed to as a reference to a 'new world order', and that this is something we should oppose, when in fact, this is evidence of our founders oft-stated and (in my opinion) enlightened intention.
they quite openly were hoping to establish a secular order in the new world. secular, as in, not governed by the Church. there is no cause for fear of Latin.
on that note, “E Pluribus Unum” is sloppily translated here. “From the many, one.” (as opposed to "One of many") is more accurate in its implications, and again, reflects a rather high-minded ideal that America has in many ways come to embody. we have 50 states represented by each and every variety of human found on this planet, and yet we are one nation.
this concept corresponds to the upward pointing triangle in the Star of David, the masculine principle representing knowledge or wisdom. The wide base angled upward to meet at the apex tells the story of man aspiring to an ideal, or god-like state.
(the downward pointing triangle then, of course, corresponds to the feminine principle, the all-embracing, nurturing concept of “as above, so below”). in fact, this symbol is displayed right above the phrase E Pluribus Unum, consisting of 13 stars. This is so carefully pointed out by the skeptical commentary pasted on the original picture.
Thirteen (13) is an incredibly significant number in a wide range of traditions, including but not limited to the Masons (obviously), the Mayans, Judaism, Hinduism and numerology. it is a number of completion, of ascension, of re-union with the divine. the idea that it is an unlucky number is a purposeful distortion intended to obscure its true power and importance.
there is obviously a lot to be said about the pyramid, but I’ll try to hit the relevant points. first of all, the pervasiveness of the pyramid shape is a result of its relationship to our current 3-d world. based on sacred geometric principles, the pyramid acts as a stabilizing force, conducting etheric energy and helping the earth maintain its delicate balance.
this is one reason why you find massive pyramids all over the world (even on ocean floors), built by otherwise ‘unrelated’ civilizations who apparently had tapped into this esoteric knowledge and understood the importance of this form.
there is some great Russian research around pyramids, crazy stuff like exposure or vicinity to a large pyramid reduced violent crime and increased IQ. you can do your own google on that. this also helps to explain the purpose of the Egyptian pyramids. the open sarcophagus in the kings chamber of the great pyramid was a superconductor for spiritual energy.
David Wilcock, among others, have described the process in which the initiate lies in the open tomb, and the living power of the pyramid channels massive amounts of ether, or prana, light-force (or whatever you want to call it) directly into the body, significantly raising their vibratory frequency and sending their consciousness deep into astral realms and beyond on a life or death journey.
If they are able to successfully confront their demons and navigate their way back to human form, they would walk the Earth as a fully ascended master, with serious worldly powers (think levitation, instant manifestation, etc). But if they got lost, oops, too bad, come back and try again next time.
These were the Pharaohs. These days I'm convinced they either openly were, or were given profound guidance by, varying entities from non-earth-bound realms.
oh, okay, so anyway, the Masons (the Founders) are clued into this ancient knowledge, as their lineage is said to stretch back to Atlantis, the enlightened survivors of which are the forgotten sources for the founding of the ancient Greek societies (Plato is the earliest, and a significant source of info on Atlantis) and on down from there.
However, we all well know that a mass of worldly influence does not necessarily correspond with any moral or spiritual discipline or purity. Thus, the initiates of this lineage are capable of 3-d magic tricks but little more. They are trapped in a dimensional cage of their own creation. They been hoping to keep us locked down too, under vibrational control, but we are at liberty to transcend them whenever we are collectively ready.
Calling the All-Seeing Eye that is the missing capstone of the pyramid the "Eye of Lucifer" as they do is a gross simplification, and almost qualifies as fear-mongering.
The replacing of the capstone is rooted in the symbolism of the second-coming of what is known as the Christ consciousness. When the metaphorical capstone is returned, a long-prophesied Golden Age will be upon us. The difference is that this time the Christ comes not embodied as one man; the Christ consciousness is sweeping over the Earth even now, inspiring people to live Truth, to become those who Christ himself said would do still greater things than He.
The time is now. We are the One.
The human capstone is your third-eye, your pineal gland, just above where your nose meets your forehead, reaching straight back to that nob at the back of your skull, the little ledge at the top of your spine.
"When thine eye be single, thy body shall be full of Light"... right? Where's my intern to fetch me my precise and properly sourced quotations from scripture?
Yes. Meditation. Invite that Light to invade your Eye. I believe there is also mention of certain Ears to Hear, Eyes to See, no? Same topic, from the same Source.
As it is, the pyramid is becoming less and less central to our worldly situation. as we arise through the densities, different, more complex geometries become more efficacious, shall we say. (google ‘cymatics’, and see how things change as the frequencies increase).
Oops I did it for you:
This is also becoming true in terms of our power structures. currently, the world’s power is set up in a pyramid, right? with the greatest number at the bottom, ruled by a little group at the top. your classic ‘pyramid scheme’.
This is changing. we are transitioning (or need to be) to a more holographic political, economic, etc system, so that each separate piece contains and reflects the whole. Symbiotic like all divinely-spiraled organisms.
I do not know what this imagined society looks like. Yet.
Yet I myself am quite unsure of just what to do about it. Talking about it is all I ever seem to do, all I seem capable of. However it seems that simply sitting in silent meditation aids every other venture. Now I am devoted to the how, not the what; I will continue until doing dishes is ecstasy, juggling a ball joyous, and sleeping in leads to serenely lucid dreaming.
I can only pass on what I have seen. The sources on this stuff are varied, and jumbled in web-browser histories so expansive that I'd rather just wait until we can plug into the akashic records directly, find out what truly happens. In any case, we have little choice as a species -right now- in terms of a more holistic existence. Fully conscious Self-creation will save us. Coming soon, we hope.
anyway, I’m way off topic here, but it’s my rant and I’ll digress if I want to. the biggest point I want to impress is that far more than words do, symbols rule the world. symbols speak to us on deeply sub- and meta-conscious levels.
like any tool, they can be employed in the service of the full range of intentions, from total-dark to Source-light. the tool itself remains inherently neutral.
Tt is only when we become aware of the power of symbols that we can realize their influence upon us. As we become aware of ourselves within the thick atmosphere of archetypal (Platonic) symbols - man's shadowy dream of day and night inhabited by mere dense manifestations of a tragic and playful Spirit - we are surrounded at every turn by lessons we have somewhere wisely chosen for our own personal soul-growth. So be nice to strangers.
