The Esoteric Interpretation of the Movie “9”: Heralding the Age of Horus


Tim Burton’s “9” is a computer-animated movie that was released on 9/9/09. While some critics claimed that the movie “lacked substance”, it nevertheless conveyed powerful messages through symbolism. It even defines a “new age” for humanity as seen by occult secret societies.


Warning: Gigantic spoilers ahead!

9 takes place in a dark, post-apocalyptic world where intelligent, self-reproducing machines destroyed all life on Earth. In this desolate setting, a small relic of humanity remains: Nine rag dolls animated by a scientist’s soul. These dolls, however, are constantly targeted by the machines that are determined to eradicate anything resembling life on Earth. The dolls must, therefore, band together to fight and destroy these evil robots.

The above paragraph pretty much sums up the plot of 9 in its entirety – and that is probably what most viewers got out of the movie. However, like all works infused with an esoteric dimension, there is more to the movie than meets the eye. Through symbolism and references, the movie describes humanity as a whole and the transitional phase it is going through. More precisely, 9 describes the world as seen by occult secret societies and the “new age” they are all predicting: the Age of Horus or the Age the Aquarius.

Before we look at the movie, let’s look at the occult philosophy behind it.

The Age of Horus

The occult elite believes that humanity needs to go through a period of great tribulation in order for it to “purge its impurities”. According to occult writers, these “impurities” include traditional religions and governments as we know them. Manly P. Hall, a 33rd degree Freemason, describes what should happen in the next phase of humanity. We’ll later see how this fits perfectly with the vision portrayed in 9.

“The criers of the Mysteries speak again, bidding all men welcome to the House of Light. The great institution of materiality has failed. The false civilization built by man has turned, and like the monster of Frankenstein, is destroying its creator. Religion wanders aimlessly in the maze of theological speculation. Science batters itself impotently against the barriers of the unknown. Only transcendental philosophy knows the path. Only the illumined reason can carry the understanding part of man upward to the light. Only philosophy can teach man to be born well, to live well, to die well, and in perfect measure be born again.”
– Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages

The most prominent occultist of the 20th century, Aleister Crowley, stated that the last 2,000 years were the “Age of Osiris”. Osiris was the “king of the living and ruler of the dead” and his Age was characterized by strong governments and religions, notably Christianity’s “emphasis on death, suffering, sorrow and the denial of the body”. However, since the 20th century, Crowley claims that humanity entered the Age of Horus, who is the child of Osiris. In this phase, humans would learn to become their own gods.

“In plain language, the Aeon of Horus means that the Godhead is being passed down to the individual who needs to learn to activate and find the God-Within themselves. This latest Aeon sees the beginning of the end of Divine Power and authority being owned by kings, queens, religions, governments, big institutions and dictatorships, which will increasingly all begin to fail spectacularly. The individual will have the opportunity to become fully liberated, in charge of their own spiritual destiny. ”
– Paul Dunne, The Magic of the New Aquarian Age and the New Aeon of Horus

Through subtle symbolism, 9 describes the fall of authority (mainly the Christian Church) in a new era ruled by the Luciferian philosophy of obtaining godhood through one’s own powers. Using rag dolls and very little dialogue, 9 describes the basis of this occult philosophy and shows how it will prevail.

The heroes of the movie are themselves the product of an ancient occult concept: They are homunculi, “little men” artificially created through a magical process. They are the epitome of man playing God and giving life.

Homunculi (Latin for “little men”) is a concept that can be found in several ancient alchemical documents. In Jewish folklore, the Golem, an animated anthropomorphic being created entirely from inanimate matter, is documented in the Talmud and the Sefer Yetzirah (there are even accounts of Kabbalist rabbis successfully animating such Golems).

For a brief moment, the movie acknowledges the occult roots of its premise:

Visible for about a half a second, the cover of this book explaining the origins of the rag dolls, indicates the occult and alchemical minding behind the entire movie. We can, of course, start with the ubiquitous symbol of the All-Seeing Eye inside a triangle.
Visible for about a half a second, the cover of this book explains the origins of the rag dolls and indicates the occult meaning behind the entire movie. You might recognize the ubiquitous symbol of the All-Seeing Eye inside a triangle. However, the title of the book is even more telling.

The title of the book, “Annuls of Paracelsus”, basically tells the viewers: “This movie is based on hermetic philosophy and alchemy”. Paracelsus was one of the most renowned occultists of the Renaissance. His work in the field of Hermetism, alchemy, and medicine are still thoroughly studied to this day, in practically all occult circles.

“In any matter of Realization and Ritual, Paracelsus is an imposing magical authority. No one has accomplished works greater than his, and for that very reason he conceals the virtue of ceremonies and merely teaches in his occult philosophy the existence of that magnetic agent which is omnipotence of will; he sums also the whole science of characters in two signs, the macrocosmic and microcosmic stars. It was sufficient for the adepts, and it was important not to initiate the vulgar. Paracelsus therefore did not teach the Ritual, but he practised, and his practice was a sequence of miracles.”
– Eliphas Levi, Rituel de la Haute Magie

Paracelsus’ work De natura rerum (1537) is the first alchemical work that mentions the creation of homunculi. It actually describes a technique to create a “little man” using horse dung and human sperm.

The concept of creating homunculi subsequently appeared in other seminal occult texts, such as the Rosicrucian work Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz (1616) and Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s Faust, Part 2 (a German legend about a man making a pact with the Devil). More recently, Aleister Crowley and his followers were obsessed with the creation of a homunculus (Crowley used the term “Moonchild”). Crowley even added the creation of a homunculus as a “secret instruction” when one is initiated to the O.T.O’s (an occult secret society) 10th degree.

With this reference, 9, therefore, taps into a crucial part of Western Occultism.

This page from the book "Annuls of Peracelsus" found in the movie appears to be inspired by the above engraving.
In 9, the rag dolls read  “Annuls of Paracelsus” and find a drawing documenting their creation. That drawing was probably inspired by the Faust engraving above.

In addition to the creation of homunculi, the movie also includes other parts of Paracelsus’ research, such as the use of magically charged Talismans, a tool Paracelsus used to treat his patients.

Understanding that the backstory of 9 is steeped in ancient occultism gives the movie’s storyline a specific color: It describes the world as seen by members of occult secret societies. The evolution of the characters in 9 tells it all.

The Characters

The heroes of the movie are nine rag dolls created by a scientist who infused his soul into them in order to give them life. He then died, along with the rest of humanity. Each one of the rag dolls embodies a part of the scientist’s soul and personifies one of his traits. On a larger scale, each one of these rag dolls represents a group within humanity as a whole. The fate of each doll represents what occultists predict will happen in the Age of Horus.

1: The Pope

The ragdolls are named and numbered in the order they are created, so 1 is the oldest one of the bunch. His position of authority and his distinctive garments make him the leader of the group. Given his attire, it is quite clear that 1 represents the power and authority of the Catholic Church (and religions in general).

1 wears a cape and holds a scepter, symbols of power. On his hate is strap a 1 cent coin, symbolizing the wealth of the church.
1 wears a cape and holds a scepter, symbols of power. On his hat is strapped a coin, symbolizing the wealth of the Church.

1 is stubborn, fearful, dogmatic, cowardly, and close-minded. In short, he represents all of the Church’s shortcomings as perceived by elite occult groups. In the first part of the movie, 1 forces all of the dolls to hide in a decrepit Cathedral, discouraging his followers to venture outside of it. He wants his followers to stay hidden and ignorant as he believes that it is the best way to stay alive.

As the movie progresses, however, 1 loses his authority, his scepter, and his cape. He even loses the coin on his hat. In this transitional period, 1 ultimately represents the fall of religions in the Age of Horus and their loss of power, wealth, and authority.

At one point, 1's Cathedral is attacked by one-eyed robots and burns down, forcing the group to hide in the library instead. Difficult to find a more telling image representing the fall of religions at the brink of this new era.
At one point, 1’s Cathedral is attacked by one-eyed robots and burns down, forcing the group to hide in the Library instead. It is difficult to find a more telling image representing the fall of religions at the brink of a new era.

After the Cathedral burns down, the group hides in the Library. There they discover “Annuls of Paracelsus”, an occult book describing the creation of the rag dolls. 1 is against the dolls reading this book.

When the dolls open up Peracelsus', 1 tears up the page describing their very creation.
When the dolls open up Paracelsus’ book, 1 tears up the page describing their creation.

At one point 1 says:

“Dark Science. What does this useless rubbish do for us? Forget it!”

To which 9 replies:

– You know something. What do you know?”

1 answers:

– I know enough to leave their ancient evil to moulder. Look what they left us with.”

Does this scene represent religious elites holding occult knowledge while forbidding their followers from seeking it? 1 is therefore exactly how secret societies perceive the Church and how they want the world to perceive the Church … in order to abandon it.

9: The Light Bearer

9 is the hero of the movie. Not unlike 1, he is also associated with an object that holds a heavy significance: A light-bulb on a stick.

The movie poster depicts 9 with his electric torch. Note that the release date of the movie was 09-09-09, a nod to occult numerology and one of the movie's many flirts with the number of the beast, 666.

9 is pretty much the opposite of 1. He is the youngest of the group, adventurous, courageous, curious, and resolved to solve his problems by his own means. In short, he is how occult groups perceive themselves. 9 also holds the Mystery schools’ favorite emblem, a lighted torch – a nod to Prometheus, the bringer of fire (divine knowledge) to humanity.

"Prometheus Brings Fire" by Heinrich Friedrich Füger.

The Judeo-Christian version of Prometheus is Lucifer, which is a Latin word meaning “light-bearer”. 9 represents the Mystery Schools’ interpretation of Lucifer: A savior who “initiated” humanity to divine knowledge and opened a path to godhood (Lucifer gave Adam and Eve knowledge of good and evil).

While 1 apparently awaits a divine intervention to save the world, 9 represents the Promethean/Luciferian concept of attaining godhood through one’s own means. In the end of the movie, 9 does just that and even brings life back to Earth.

In this movie that takes place in a transitional period of humanity – between the Age of Osiris and the Age of Horus – 9 symbolically represents the Luciferian principle overthrowing traditional religions … and saving the world.

2 is an older character that lost one eye. He actually says at one point: "Actually I dont mind having one eye. It's easier for me. I can concentrate on one thing at a time. You know?" He is one of many nods to the one-eye signs in the movie. In fact, ALL of the evil robots in the movie also have one eye.
5 is an inventor who lost an eye. He actually says during the movie: “Actually I don’t mind having one eye. It’s easier for me.

3 and 4 are historians and archivists. 7 is the only female and a courageous warrior.
3 and 4 are twins who serve as historian and archivist. 7 is a fearless warrior and the only female of the group. These three characters rejected 1’s rule at the Cathedral and sought refuge at the Library, the place where all knowledge (including occult knowledge) is stored. When the Cathedral burns down, all of the dolls (including 1) hide in the Library. Once again, knowledge and courage are portrayed as the opposite of 1, the representative of religion.

A Purge to Save Humanity

The dolls flee the burning Cathedral and seek refuge in the Library, where 3, 4 (the historian and archivist) and 7 (the warrior) already live.

This part of the story is telling because it represents the “evolution” that occult secret societies want to see in the world. Ever since the time of the medieval Knight Templars, occult secret societies have accused the Church of stifling knowledge, science, and progress. It is difficult to find an occult writer who doesn’t extensively denounce the Church’s role in censoring occult knowledge and punishing those who teach or practice it. The move from the Cathedral to the Library, therefore, represents the abandonment of religions for knowledge.

Moving to the Library is however not enough. The robots still find the dolls and attack them. In the end, sacrifices must be made and some elements must be “purged” in order for the group to survive.

The occult elite perceives the evolution of humanity as an ongoing alchemical process. The goal of alchemy is to turn crude metals into gold and it is believed that humanity needs to transform using the same process. The first phase of the alchemical Great Work is called Nigredo – blackening. This phase represents the process of burning, turning the base material into black ashes in order to break it down and remove its impurities. In 9, the world is definitely going through the Nigredo phase: It is dark, burnt down and in ruins.

The end of the movie is also extremely symbolic. 9 creates a bonfire in the shape of a five-pointed star to liberate the souls of the dolls who were killed by the robots.

In the new Aeon of humanity, some elements will be eliminated from it. While they were useful during the previous period, they are now outdated.
9 creates a bonfire that will release the souls of 1, 2, 5 and 8. In the New Age, occultists believe some elements of humanity must be “purged”. While they may have been useful during the previous period, they are now thought to be outdated.
The four dolls who remained alive to see the New Age are incidentally the four who defied 1's rule and went to the library.
The four dolls who remain alive to see the New Age are, 9, 7, 3, and 4 … coincidentally, the four who defied 1’s rule. This is pretty much the message of the entire movie.

After the bonfire, 7 asks 9:

“What happens next?”

“I’m not sure exactly. But this world is ours now. It’s what we make of it”.

Then it starts raining and we see living organisms in the drops of water. The purge has allowed life to be brought back to Earth and only the representatives of the Luciferian principle have survived.

In Conclusion

When one takes a first, superficial look at 9 and its promotional material, one is inclined to think that it is a children’s movie, with a slightly darker feel. Critics summed up the movie as being “eye candy with little substance”. They may have understood the in-your-face “too much technology is bad, m’kay” message, but its deeper, esoteric message was probably missed by most.

However, once one understands the background knowledge used to build the storyline, the occult references, and the movie’s overarching philosophy, it is easy to see an entirely different dimension to the movie. 9 is about humanity going through a transitional period, embracing a Promethean/Luciferian savior, and destroying the rule of traditional powers, such as religion.

Aleister Crowley believes that this transitional period is now. He called this new age the Aeon of Horus. Horus was the child of Osiris and Isis and, for this reason, it is believed that humanity is currently taking the traits of a child. After finding the “Stele of Revealing” in an Egyptian museum (it was exhibit #666), Crowley wrote this about the coming New Aeon:

“Horus rules the present period of 2,000 years, beginning in 1904. Everywhere his government is taking root. Observe for yourselves the decay of the sense of sin, the growth of innocence and irresponsibility, the strange modifications of the reproductive instinct with a tendency to become bi-sexual or epicene, the childlike confidence in progress combined with nightmare fear of catastrophe, against which we are yet half unwilling to take precautions.

Consider the outcrop of dictatorships, only possible when moral growth is in its earliest stages, and the prevalence of infantile cults like Communism, Fascism, Pacifism, Health Crazes, Occultism in nearly all its forms, religions sentimentalized to the point of practical extinction.

Consider the popularity of the cinema, the wireless, the football pools and guessing competitions, all devices for soothing fractious infants, no seed of purpose in them.

Consider sport, the babyish enthusiasms and rages which it excites, whole nations disturbed by disputes between boys.

Consider war, the atrocities which occur daily and leave us unmoved and hardly worried.

We are children.”

– Aleister Crowley, Book of the Law on the New Aeon / Age of Horus

This is what 9 is about. But there is one question the movie doesn’t answer: Is humanity organically entering this phase of History or is it being forced and provoked by the powers that be in order for it to achieve its own “Great Work”?

There is also another reason why the Elites chose the number 1 to represent the antagonistic portrayal of religion as evil and selfish. In fact, the number 1 in the movie not only represents religion but also God Almighty. If we look back to the Abrahamic religious scriptures, we know that there is only ONE God: "Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God! The Lord is One!" [Deuteronomy 6:4] And also in Islam, Muslims also hold to strict monotheism and associating equals to God is one of the biggest sins, if not, the biggest. "Say: He is Allah, the One and Only. Allah, the Eternal, Absolute. He begetteth not, nor is He begotten. And there is none comparable unto Him. [Al-Quran 112:1-4] In conclusion, these Elites are not just trying to constrict American freedom (which is kinda petty if you ask me) but more seriously, they are actually trying… Read more »

not without Jesus…..only through the son, we can reach to father…….only he holds the power over sin….my dear…..

interesting, because when I saw this movie I came to very similar conclusions. the occult references are some of them obvious and some not so obvious. the idea that man can merge with machine is also part of the new world order's transhumanist viewport.

Excellent post BTW!

I found the cover interesting. I immediately spotted an inverted cross (broken down fence), the burning train that resembles the twin towers on 9/11, not to mention the opening date being close. The enormous doll on the ground that symbolizes how these dolls are standing on top of predetermined ideas, not even there own since they were created and parts of their creators mentalities were embedded into them. Seriously what kind of children's movie cover has an apocalyptic scary feature….. this was aimed to the older, yet oblivious generation. There's no path, only a mess guided by some archaic book. They want us to believe they have the answers and the true knowledge, but they don't know crap either. What is this artificial light he carries, for it is not one that shines. What is religion? Loosely it can be anything we habitually practice… brushing our teeth can be a… Read more »

By the way, the lightbulb of Lucifer represents the "false light", or more accurately, the stolen or "harnessed" light. The symbol of the "true light", of course, is the candle flame. The trapped light within the light bulb would like nothing more than to be freed in order to join the light of the candle flame.

Our entire society is based on the harnessing of light, which empowers the industrial age. That's what is behind the name "Illuminati". It's about stealing the natural resource of Light (in the form of electricity) and using it against its own desire in order to steal dominance over the earth and eventually Heaven itself. But it will not fulfill its final goal.

I am very glad there are people with such wisdom as shown on this site and that they are able to connect it in such a way it makes a lot of things clear. Even with some knowledge of occult and so called history of the world it is uhmm enlightning.
It seems to become harder and harder to find 'neutral art'. I mean without hidden agenda's, be it masonic or heavily organized religions, just for the sake of art, making the viewer think about stuff, or beauty or entertainment. Has there ever been such a thing, or is my imagination fading in and out of focus.?.

Art is supposed to provoke thought.

What was the purpose of nr 2 and nr 8 in the movie??

Spot on! What a powerful tool for the deceived to see with. Amazing how “godless” humanistic Hollywood continues to worship Lucifer hidden in plain sight.

That 666 sketch also has the peace symbol in it, upside down broken cross.

For evolution being true and the bible false they sure confirm what our God already told us from the beginning.

Btw, I read the end of the Book…
…we win

Wow! You opened my eyes thank you! So little time so much meaning.

In the nag hammadi texts, the Gnostics describe three types of man that are currently existent on Earth today. There is the tulpa, or homunculi, like this article says, the material man, which is essentially soulless animated matter, matter being the physical human body. Then there is ensouled man, or psychic man, which reincarnates, has a spiritual destiny, and was created by the creator of Earth. Then there is the great men and woman with more pure souls, who come for one life here and there, throughout history, whom have a soul that originated in a higher, more perfect form (even more perfected than the soul of the creator god of earth) that come to show humanity a more perfected way of being. I think that the first, material man, represents the vast majority of humans on Earth, especially since the world population has drastically increased over the past few… Read more »

Where have i been? Ive never even heard of this movie. I find a lot of these so called children movies to be odd and adult like with a deeper meaning.

The image found in the book of Peracelsus is based on a woodcut illustration by Albrecht Durer, a german painter, mathematician, etc. in his Four Books on Measurement (search for Underweysung der Messung). There are several of these and they are part of a discussion on perspective drawings. The one in "9" has been manipulated, of course, but the connection is unmistakable.

I had an urge to see this film last night… and now I have more clarity on the reason– thank you for the thoughtful analysis. There is INDEED a greater meaning to that which compels us… our responsibility lies in its PURPOSE

I have not seen this movie, so I'm not sure, but it seems to me yet another in a long line of films that show a future in which humanity will only exist in avatar or cyborg bodies.

I don't know how you keep going at this VC. I find it totally overwhelming at this point.

The last part of this article – the quote from the "Book of the Law" had me absolutely astonished! How accurate a description of the mindless obsessions the crazy "trends" we see in society today – a society lost in a wilderness of self-glorification and total hedonism… The blind leading the blind indeed.
Thank you VC – your work is priceless and always eye-opening!

Only question: who/what do the robots supposedly represent?

The 'play by play' to what is occurring and what will occur, at least in the now plans, was written in a letter by Alexander Pike to a man named Mazzini. In this letter, the wars of future generations are outlined and the results are shocking. The 3rd war has yet to come but there is NO question that the clowns are trying to think of a way to get it rolling as we speak. The more mystical metaphoric version is in Revelation to John, but that is nearly impossible to make sense of unless you have knowledge of ALL the surrounding criteria and a STRONG grasp of biblical knowledge. They've taken a few hits recently, some of their "prophesies" have not come true, the 3 generals that were supposed to lite off the nukes didn't do what they were told and the window closed for that little evil ceremony.

Part 1 (got to love text limits!) Just saw this movie for the first time 11/26/2013. It's getting so any time I see "unusual" symbols in a media production, I immediately think: what occult theme is this visual vomit presenting today? Elite control, make-yourself-God-through-the-depravity-of-your-choice, or the more popular, You create the chaos, We'll make it all good after (see first item).

Is there some biased of showing "happy" movies with good endings, for kids or adults? Why is it the only "good" movies are the ones where all the characters have to debase themselves and grovel through the muck?

Meh. She sheep are scared because they know they'll be the first ones. If you're awake, you're not afraid, and you know what's up, you know what's happening IS biological, inevitable, necessary, and in the end… beautiful. Yes, humanity is going through a spiritual evolution, yes it is necessary for the cosmic order to keep going as it has, and yes every single soul will at some point have to face it. The more they struggle to accept the truth, the harder it will be to face. The longer and deeper someone will try to sleep, the more painful it will be to wake up. "So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep" "Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you" " Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love" People… Read more »

Kristina is speaking the truth. To people who's mind is held captive by dogma or religion, what she has to say may hurt you. I know, I've been there. But though it hurts, you have to question your beliefs, challenge your faith, if only to see if it's as strong as you think it is. This isn't something that you must do for someone else, this you have to do for yourself, for your own spiritual evolution.

Well, she is and she isn't – our earthly experience is a complete journey in many ways and gives us the intelligence and transferable skills to deal with the challenges we face and every joy and struggle can be couched in terms of self discovery which is beautiful … BUT we did not create ourselves and we did not simply come about due to evolution. A higher force must have done done it and granted us the faculties to become what we are. The three Fs are for animals, man is a more privileged creature (I really don't want to hear the 'my dog/god is cleverer than yours' line at this stage). The Hermetic idea of 'As above, so Below' makes us aware that the life of this world is merely a reflection and that a higher force is holding up the mirror. Every member of the Illu minati is… Read more »

vc`s very astute analysis ends with the question: "Is humanity organically entering this phase of History or is it being forced and provoked by the powers that be in order for it to achieve its own “Great Work”?"

I believe that the answer is simple and that it lies in the fact that tim burton actually made "9". humanity is indeed being forced ever more deeply into this "blackening" – and it is magical rituals such as that performed on 9/11, as well as films like "9" (and many, many others like it) that are doing this (not so) "great work".

Black is not evil, it's another of those things elite want you to think as bad. Was Lucifer black? He was the LIGHT bearer, white, he was illuminated and was very wise.
Energy can turned to bad, even white energy, don't be fooled.

btw, I don't mean "black" and "white" as in skin colour but energy/magic/power/whatever you believe in to.

Many rituals specifically require participants to have white-blonde hair and paper white skin at different levels of The Progress. That is why Gaga looks the way she does right now, Madonna has also gone through that phase at least once etc. Also, most children are born looking that way naturally so they are particularly vulnerable to being used in ritual.

It is also the reason why many iconic blondes are kept that way for so long that most of their adoring fans never knew for years that they were actually dark haired to begin with (e.g. Monroe). There is also a more covert form where natural blondes dye their hair black and create the same confusion (Winona, Uma etc). The dark to light duality or vice versa.

jesus christ this s**t is dark

This is all very true. The elite is getting ready to start a. New World Order, but after all of this caos and crisis, there is only one God, the father of Jesus Christ and those who believe in him. He will let this period of great tribulation occur bc of so much sin. But just know that God (Jehova) is the creator and this will all end soon. He will show his glory and the foolishness of false Gods.

wonderful post and thank you for the break down.
i noticed that the dolls had 3 fingers and 1 thumb which equals 13, the 13 illuminat families.
plus reptilians have 3 fingers and 1 thumb, much like HOMER SIMPSON on the SIMPSONS.

What on Earth is this? Well then, it’s good to know I should actually hate this movie and should have known it was just all a madman who created it.

9 = 333 = 3 : the most mystical number on this life station ( earth ), symbols & numbers – magicK, only because we have yet to understand the inner-workings ,so, what they do is practice inversion, backwardness, counterfeit masters, they defame and soil the almighty " trinity " ( 3 ) — the movie revolves around this numerical digit for that reason alone – ( a mocking of Christ )

I'm not surprised Burton is into this and not just because of the general, macabre nature of his work. Johnny Depp seems deeply submerged in it and they've worked together almost as an inseparable team for over a decade.

For sometime now, I've been seeing the number three and nine pop up all over the place. Its incredible how much I've noticed them in movies as well. Has anyone else noticed this and is there anymore information on the symbolism and movies where it occurs? Especially 3's.

Human Self Indulgence. And our natural curiosity for things will be the end of us. Ever heard of the Greek Myth Pandora's Box? Somethings should just be left untouched. I, a fellow christian believes in the just & Almighty. For some, This may well, indeed ruin my credibility, But its not really about that. I'm a humble person whom would like to say that everyone has their own way of seeing things. We mustn't over think to much, If we allow ourselves, to do so, we will stray from the path of the good, virtue & righteousness. Stay strong and love eachother.

Thank you all for taking your precious time,reading what i wrote.

L. Ron Hubbard and rocket scientist Jack Parsons attempted to make a Gollum in the Mohave Desert, just a stones throw from what later bacame Area 51…

Very true. In the 50's and 60's, the California desert was a hotbed of occult activity and MKUltra. With Area 51, Scotty's castle, and China Lake Naval Base, the Mojave desert was a horrible Satanic playground.

I think it's really crazy that even kids movies have these esoteric meanings. What happen to those days when people weren't brainwashed? Oh it never been days like that. People have been brainwashed since before Christ.

From Indonesia … thank you …

My daughter's birthday is 9/9/09 at 9:00. no it wasn't planned that was just when she was ready to come into the world. We saw the previews for this movie, and my oldest daughter of only eight at the time caught the occult symbols. It scared her for her sister that her birthday was the release date and title of the movie.

Check out those new Beyonce videos! She looks like a lifeless soul sometimes

No, i am not going to step in one again.
Enjoy the show.

Violet – You are insane. No one ever said anything about the things you are arguing against. It's nothing to do with 'antiquated'. The age of the religions is not what people are on about. Please think. Also, Christianity is possibly the least scientific and most barbaric of currently practiced religions. If not, then it's tied. Most Masons are Christians, how's that for 'old and barbaric'! Practice what you preach.

I am well aware that many masons are Christian and they may be unaware of what some masons are involved in, but I feel that the mystery religions of the 33rd degree elite are in contradiction to Christianity. I refer you to Albert Pike's Morals and Dogma as he refers to Adonay (God) and Lucifer the light bearer. I also ask you to google the 33rd degree and their financial contribution to the cruel MKUltra monarch program. This program was not a very Christian program. In Eyes Wide Shut, Kubrick makes many references to 33rd degree masons being involved in the sex rituals with mind controlled slaves..Ziegler is a name for masons. Look at Red Cloak's throne. Look at the building next door to Rainbow Costumes. Look at the symbol of Ishtar in the Christmas party. These masons are not very Christian. Number 1 represents Christianity and number 9 represents… Read more »


you are false. Most christians arent christians. That is the flaw. A true Christian is harmless to you, it is their God you should be afraid of.

To rage against traditional authority is infantile, as Crowley notes in the paragraph quoted above. This is the great weakness of an alternative path.

But the truth is: we *are* children. Our dreams *are* childish. We *act* like children, towards ourselves and towards each other, for all the reasons Crowley mentions, and the writer acknowledges.

The other truth is we are all our own *great work*, the apocalypse is daily and ongoing — for everyone, collectively and individually — and that we all need to grow the hell up.

And I had avoided this movie because its advertising didn't strike a chord in me. I'll have to give it a watch and see if I can follow along at home.

Thank you, OP, for writing the site and story. Bookmarked!

I find the use of the song 'somewhere over the rainbow' from the wizard of oz very interesting in this film. If I remember correctly it was when the dolls were feeling a false sense of security, believing that they were safe and had destroyed the robots.

I can recognize the use of these symbols, but I do not agree with all of the interpretations. I know that there's the idea of hiding in plain sight and double think, but couldn't the evil one eyed robots in this film be a warning against the evils of technology (and perhaps by extension authority, tyranny)?

Great article VC! You really "get it" don't you……. I've never seen this movie but not surprising to say the least in regards to the occult meaning behind the film and what it actually represents. The Title of the film alone says it all, that's if you understand the concept of numerology that "They" use & even the date is was released – Add all the numbers you get 27 ~ 2+7= 9….taking you back to the one of the main "occult" numbers for the "Elite". Remember the Freemasons encode hidden information in their architecture and monumental structures they build, that's just one example…. Like I always love saying the dots always connect and VC, you do most of the work lol & I liked and understood the connections you made. Some really good comments guys. Keep 'em comin 🙂

I hope VC does an analysis about Eminem's "Rap God"

Also, in this film, only 9, 7, 3, and 4 have survived. In reality, # 1 will be among the survivors and things will look very different from what this grotesque movie depicts.

Great article, but there are some flaws. One is the constantly touted myth that the elite agenda is about the coming age of Horus. The earthly elite HATES Horus. Horus is the equivalent of Jesus, at least symbolically. The one they worship is the equal to Lucifer/Satan. his name is SET. Look up information regarding the war between Horus and Set. They do not believe that their idol Set will be the "savior" of the world, and as such, it's wrong to characterize their belief that Set is bent on saving the world. Their only concern is having Set save *them* from the law of Karma (Justice). Also, if you add 6 + 6 + 6, you get 18. 1 + 8 = 9. It's an "odd" number which represents asymmetry and inequality. It's inferior to the perfect 10. They don't want the actual perfection of 10 because they would… Read more »

Hi VC,

Thanks for all you do. You hit on something monumental at the very end:

"This is what 9 is about. But there is one question the movie doesn’t answer: Is humanity organically entering this phase of History or is it being forced and provoked by the powers that be in order for it to achieve its own “Great Work"?"

The question I have is: What if it's both?

In the 4th screenshot (Where the rag doll is reading from the “Annuls of Peracelsus”) the ragdoll's hand forms a masonic compass and square.

The Beatles : another esoteric band pretending to be happy go lucky liverpudlian reptilians are actually evil monsters and i am not talking about Paul Mccartney who died in 66 in a carcrash and got replaced by a canadian cop who still rocks to this day…but i am talking about their song number 9….and it goes like this: number 9, number 9, number 9…and when you play it backwards it says turn me on dead man

I put the vinyl record on a turntable, played it backwards and sure enough it definitely says "turn me on deadman!" Not sure about the rest of all that though…


"9 creates a bonfire that will release the souls of 1, 2, 5 and 8…"

As above (999), so below (666)

*The Ennead – a group of nine deities in Egyptian mythology.

*The N9NE Group – is a partnership that owns and operates restaurants and nightclubs at the Palms Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, and formerly in Chicago and Dallas.

*itunes, ipad, ipod etc. Consider that the 9th letter in the alphabet is I, again, representative of The Self. 666 reduces to 9 (6+6+6=18 and 1+8=9)

*The magic square using the first nine numbers is associated to the planet Saturn and always has the sum of 15(up, down, across, diagonally). Sometimes, it is also called the square of Solomon.

4 9 2
3 5 7
8 1 6

"Despite others' attempts to identify a certain number with Satan, it will be known that 9 is his number. Nine is the number of the ego for it always returns to itself. No matter what is done through the most complex multiplication of 9 by any other number, in the end, 9 alone will stand forth."

-Anton LeVay
Founder and High Priest of The Church of Satan
from his book on Satanic Rituals.

When ego (9) is added,
nothing changes
1+9=10 (1+0=1)
2+9=11 (1+1=2)
3+9=12 (1+2=3)
4+9=13 (1+3=4)
5+9=14 (1+4=5)
6+9=15 (1+5=6)
7+9=16 (1+6=7)
8+9=17 (1+7=8)
9+9=18 (1+8=9)

When ego multiplies,
more ego is made.
2×9=18 (1+8=9)
3×9=27 (2+7=9)
4×9=36 (3+6=9)
5×9=45 (4+5=9)
6×9=54 (5+4=9)
7×9=63 (6+3=9)
8×9=72 (7+2=9)
9×9=81 (8+1=9)
