Fellow Illuminati. We're really good at hiding eyes and pentagrams in children's cartoons, and I think the anime division especially deserves a pat on the back. I'm a little concerned about mission creep, however. It's just that we never actually, you know, seem to get around to establishing the New World Order. Maybe we need to refocus on our mission statement? Just throwing this out there.
Bill, you were out last week, but we had a meeting to discuss just that point.
We've realized that because we already run the media, the governments, the economies and all the worlds military...we technically already rule the world.
We went back and forth about what we'd do if we overtly exerted our control over the plebian masses, and discovered that we wouldn't really do anything very differently...yes, Frank, I know you wanted to turn Hawaii into a private child sex cult, we'll talk about that sometime (much) later.
Anyhow, the world is already slowly bending to our will...as you've noticed we already managed to concentrate most of the planets wealth in ourselves, the worlds largest economies are unknowingly taking steps to make us more powerful.
There's no need for a New World Order, because WE already won! We're having an office party to celebrate on Friday.
Hope you don't mind me Replying All on this one since I was CC'd in. I wanted to ask this at the meeting, but I thought it might cause a longer discussion that AOB really allowed.
What kind of lotion do you guys use? My skin suit just keeps drying up something fierce, and I'm worried people are starting to notice.
I mean, I can explain away my hand gestures and stuff, but people keep noticing my reptilian features and I'm really worried about some of these pictures that people are taking.
Thanks for any advice.
As the duly elected representative of the Chemtrail Council and its commercial interests, I say we need more chemtrails!

I love how the great majority of all this sort of bullshit can be explained with one sentence..
Artists: They like geometry n eyes n tings.
Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
Or maybe Just..
Humans: They think symbols n tings are cool
(For instance getting random chinese characters that probably say "I am an idiot" on their ass)
It's very specific imagery, though, with a well-documented historical pedigree. When someone deconstructs the symbolic language of Christianity, say - the cross, the crown of thorns, the resurrection scene - or the imagery of 20th century racists - the golliwog, the minstrel, blackface - we accept these things for what they are. So why should we have a hard time accepting that the postmodern First Estate, the "media class", also has it's own iconography?
In regards to DBZ, though, I think what this guy has failed to consider is that DBZ is the product of a non-Christian society. Its iconographic language owes more to Eastern religions, Buddhism and Daoism is particular, than it does to Judeo-Christian lore. That is not to say that this Youtuber's central contention (that DBZ is anti-Christian) is incorrect; no, on the contrary, it's quite obviously *true*. But it does mean that the presence of explicitly non-Christian symbols and concepts in DBZ should come as no surprise. Basically, what he's saying is, "DBZ was made in Japan!" Well no shit.
Interestingly, Akira Toriyama is rumored to be a Jehova's Witness, and while I have never found a single scrap of credible evidence to suggest that this is actually the case, if true it would further explain his rather unorthodox treatment of Christian mythology. For example, Jehova's Witnesses do not believe in hell; they actually take the more Gnostic viewpoint that Satan resides on Earth, a view which fits in with Mr Toriyama's vision, of Satan being just some buff dude who lives in a desert.
Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
"very specific imagery" I dont agree with that. Considering the looseness of the criteria these guys use in interpreting things. These so called 'symbols' can and will be found everywhere they look. Just one small example from the start of the video. He is saying tien is making a triangle over his eye. That is clearly not a triangle, he is using 4 digits to make 4 sided polygon more like a parallelogram.
Assigning significance to thing like eyes and triangles, its just ridiculous. They are going to show up constantly in any human constructs.
Also I'm sure your aware but its worth mentioning that for the Japanese, christianity has the trappings of cool exotic mystery, just as eastern religions do for westerners.
Tien's "Third Eye" is very specific imagery. The Eye of Providence within a pyramid is also very specific imagery. Now it is possible that the shot wherein Tien makes a triangle (and it is a triangle) was meant to be nothing more than a cool kung fu scene, and people definitely have a tendency to find patterns where the author has probably not intended them to appear (for example, that floating eyeball anime is a stretch); my point is simply that these symbols do exist, and in at least some cases (such as the Freemasons, the various "occult" characters in Gravity Falls, Jay-Z, and everyone's favorite Danish band, Aqua) their presence is quiet clearly intentional.
We needn't even ascribe Satanic influence to these symbols, either. For example, within conspiracy theory circles, a lot is made of the rituals at Bohemian Grove. Many more-sensibly-minded people reject the claims of conspiracy theorists as a whole - denying both the supernatural dangers ascribed to the Bohemian 1%, AND the evidence of nonstandard cultural rituals being performed at their parties. However, it is important to remember that there is a difference between mere imagery and *actual Satanic influence*. One may enjoy displaying so-called "occult" images without receiving any real physical (or spiritual) benefits from doing so; one may participate in the sort of cultural rituals that Richard Nixon once described as "faggy goddamn things", and even BELIEVE in the power of those rituals, EVEN IF there are no actual supernatural forces at work.
Mr. Purple Cat Esq.
Yeah, thats pretty much my original point. People think symbols are cool. I could add that occult / exotic / mysterious symbols are *especially* cool.
As for the triangle thing. Its a triangle if your parameters for what qualifies as a triangle is extremely loose, which is how these guys end up seeing sybols everywhere. According to my criteria, its totally not, it has 4 sides sorta + the sides are all curved. I could make a much better triangle just using my fingers.
So anything with like a shape, eye or number in it is made by the Illuminati or whatever? Maybe this video is part of the Illuminati machine too then?
