Secret Symbols: The All-Seeing Eye

It’s all around us.

On the one dollar bill. On television. Online. The all-seeing eye is there, silently watching. But what is this mysterious symbol, and does it have a deeper, more sinister meaning?

The Eye Of A Secret Agenda?

Also known as the Eye of Providence, the all-seeing eye is the symbol of a single eye encompassed by a triangle, often surrounded by shining rays of light. Its origins can be traced back to ancient Egypt and the Eye of Horus, and it usually holds a religious significance.

In Buddhism, for example, Buddha is often called the “Eye of the World.” In Hinduism, it is known as the “third eye” of Lord Shiva. And in Christianity, the triangle surrounding the eye is said to represent the Holy Trinity.

According to Nigel Brown of the Freemasons, the all-seeing eye is ultimately “a reminder of the existence of a higher being.” It is the all-seeing eye of God, or the “Great Architect of the Universe,” watching over the entire world.

Others view it as symbolic of opening one’s own eyes, or perhaps one’s inner eye, to greater knowledge, transcending the physical and entering a higher state of perception.

A Sinister Vision

But not everyone believes the Eye of Providence is a benign symbol. Instead, many feel it is a not-so-secret method of control. Or, at the very least, that it is the “signature” of an enemy hiding in plain sight.

The principle actor in this agenda is everyone’s favorite secret society, the Illuminati. Through the proliferation of this symbol, it is said that they are able to spread their influence, using subliminal stimuli, to gradually ensure their dominance over an unsuspecting populace.

Every time you see the Eye of Providence, it reinforces your subliminal understanding that you are a pawn in a far-reaching conspiracy. It’s perfect, then, that this symbol is found on, and often associated with, currency — perhaps the most viewed and coveted object in this corporate, materialistic world we live in.

At least, that’s what they say.

The All-Seeing Eye Is Ever Watchful

Here are just a few instances of the All Seeing Eye, or the Eye Of Providence, found in modern society:

The Eye of Providence in World Of Warcraft

Throughout the MMORPG World of Warcraft, players can find countless pop culture references. But there are also many allusions to secret societies and symbols of the occult. The above image is just one example of the Eye of Providence popping up in the land of Azeroth, and there’s even a quest in the game called All-Seeing Eye.

“I perceive the questions that burn within your mind and I must confess that I share in your uncertainty…”

Is there truly a secret agenda hidden within these symbols? Or is it nothing more than a harmless nod to ancient imagery and design?

Perhaps it’s both, but we can’t be certain.

What do you believe?

    Here is a way to prove secret societies indeed exist: symbols, world events, corporate controlled mass media, Hollywood, many facets of the music industry, President John F.Kennedy coming out about this, and finally, common sense. Go on living, but realize absolute power corrupts absolutely, and the love of money is the root of all evil.

    It is an evil Symbol. The federal reserve control this entire world.
    They know it as well. They fund all the wars.1.46 Million military
    officials are sent to kill over oil in the Middle East . 1.1 million
    fighting over a war on drugs in the U.S. Not to mention wall street
    profiting 1,358 million incarcerated over drugs and prisoners are also
    forced into slavery working for companies for nothing. Water is illegal
    to collect because George Bush ownes 90% of it, leaving 700,000 with no
    access to clean water. A plant with phenomenal medicinal effects and
    zero side effects is illegal to obtain, this causes suffering to the
    people meanwhile big Pharma kills over 40,000 million Americans a year.
    The Chinese can no longer BREATH CLEAN AIR. They need oxygen masks which
    are sold to them. They over manufactured goods to the point where there
    is no clean air and they still keep manufacturing unnecessary
    materialistic items while this world is being destroyed. This is how you
    identify people as sociopaths. Sociopaths control this world and it is
    quite evident. This is all looked over by the “all seeing eye”. Money in
    itself is what allowed this to happen.

      the fact that theyve made you believe its an evil symbol means they now have sole ownership and power over it, because you believe that and because a lot of people do. it was originally a symbol of god watching over creation and a symbol of evolved higher consciousness, but what they do is get people to all belief its evil because belief is psychic energy and power, so wha your doing by believing its evil is giving psychic energy and power to them to use that symbol as magic against you.

  • I saw the all-seeing eye looking at me while journeying on psilocybe mushrooms.It was full of compassion.Its not a mans invention.

    • Justin Lutz

      exactly people have been using this symbol for hundreds of years, its just recently been seen as an evil symbol and thats probablly exactly what they want, to make people think good is evil. and evil is good.

    It doesn’t matter what symbol they use its the actions of man. To blame a symbol is ridiculous. I’ve seen men wearing at cross, star of David, eye of Horus and so on and they done wicked things. Most people that criticize the world leaders would be doing the same thing if put in that position. If not look at how people treat each other on regular jobs and lower based positions.

    I had a dream/vision of the masonic all seeing eye, a light shown out of the pupil illuminated the globe. It was not like any dream I ever had because after waking I knew it had not come from my own subconscious. Like that image was placed there by something else. For the longest time I thought I had been given a vision from God. Which still could be the case…but in 2010 is stumbled upon the exact image while doing a Google search in college. The vision was the exact symbol which they tried to use for the Total Information Awareness Office.
    Now I believe they want me to think it’s Government related but I believe it is Demonic…the Fallin Angel’s from the Bible or the Jinn from the Holy Quran.

    It’s God playing “Peek-a-Boo” with his infant children, humanity.

    It was a symbol of mind control at one stage from the alternate future been the beginning in the positive dimension where the rulers was evil vindictive influenced via money and greed……but in this transdimemsional y peace is the algorithm required by the ancient ones it will come to flucshin in time but where there is positive negative must always be…..have faith and prey for positive…..p.s my father was the algorithms expert of this age inventor of digital data transfer….we are all just a vibrational signal

    The truth is itps I’d a symbol of both. With the gift of sight. Your third eye you can tell.The evil people in the open took i blundly t as a way to represent themselves .Most of the world is to foolish to even grasp it. The bottom pyramid represents them. And works it way up its the majority that understand it more. You will see it plain ad day with the gift of sight. The devil is closing in right under our nose and we can’t even see it. A beautiful lierb. Because the root of all evil and man’s nature to sin. He has hold of the government. Claiming to want good but mostly lyiers. Wolves in sheep’s clothing. It go’s on and on. Simply said. It the battle of good vs evil. Light. and dark positive and negative black anf white right and wrong. The good in and God is in your heart. The bad is the devil are of the earth and possession or earthy ones. The eye is all around all the time. So don’t do bad and fall for the lie. If we do this as humans beings and spiritually. It would be shed some light on the world or the better and bring good to the shining the light of truth.

    Eye of Horace in both Time Warner And CBS logo’s reinforces consent to the “masters”.. People need to become aware that they are being misled. Certain movies have you subconsciously vow to agree to things. When you come across new information ask it if it resonates with you. Follow your heart.

    Rob, the citizen patrols who are being trained in Stasi-like psyops and the cybermobs hanging out on the social media pages where their activity is coordinated…have appropriated this symbol, which they call the “eyes of God”. This refers to the fact that they are given access to certain anti-terror level tech to use in their harassment campaigns and they feel it gives them god-like omniscience. In practice, the tech is used only to see what they want to see. It is used like a weapon in the sense that they want the population to fear them and what they can do with it.
