The Esoteric Interpretation of Pinocchio

430

Released in 1940, Pinocchio is a Disney classic still appreciated by children and adults around the world. However, the story of this wooden marionette conceals a great spiritual allegory based on esoteric teachings, which is rarely discussed. We will look at the origins of this animated adventure and its underlying meaning.

I first watched Pinocchio as a child on a poorly recorded VHS tape with my little brother while eating Fugee-O’s. I enjoyed the catchy tunes and Jiminy Cricket. I was, however, terrified by the Coachman and I did not quite like the underwater part. That’s pretty much what I remembered of this Disney classic until recently. On a lazy Sunday night, I came across the “digitally remastered” movie on TV and I watched it “for old time’s sake”. What was supposed to be a fun trip down memory lane became a shocking revelation: Pinocchio was one of the deepest movies I’ve ever watched. Could it be a huge allegory about spirituality and modern society? Did I detect hints of initiation into occult Mysteries? I immediately started to research Pinocchio’s origins and all of my theories were abundantly confirmed.

Needless to say, this movie is now a staple in today’s popular culture. How many people have NOT watched this movie? On the other hand, how many people are aware of Pinocchio’s true underlying meaning? Behind the story of the marionette trying to become a good boy is a deep spiritual story that has its roots in Mystery schools of occultism. Through the eyes of an initiate, the children’s story about “being good” filled with lessons about “not lying” becomes a man’s quest for wisdom and spiritual enlightenment. The brutally honest social commentaries of Pinnochio depicts a grim vision of our modern world and prescribes, perhaps, a way to escape its traps. Through the author’s background and literary references, one can understand the hidden gnostic meaning of Pinocchio.

 

Pinocchio’s Origins

Carlo Lorenzini aka Carlo Collodi

Pinocchio was originally written by Carlo Lorenzini (known by his pen name, Carlo Collodi) between 1881 and 1883 in Italy. Lorenzini began his writing career in newspapers (Il Lampione and Il Fanfulla ), where he often used satire to express his political views. In 1875, he entered the world of children’s literature and used this outlet to transmit his political convictions. The series Giannettino, for example, often referred to the unification of Italy.

“Lorenzini became fascinated by the idea of using an amiable, rascally character as a means of expressing his own convictions through allegory. In 1880 he began writing Storia di un burattino (“The story of a marionette”), also called Le Avventure di Pinocchio, which was published weekly in Il Giornale dei Bambini (the first Italian newspaper for children).”
-Source

Le Avventure di Pinocchio, a fairy tale describing the adventures of a stubborn marionette in his quest to become a real boy, was published in 1883 (you can read the original book here, if you wish).

Lorenzini’s work was not solely political. His writings, especially Le Avventure di Pinocchio contained a great deal of metaphysical aspects that are often overlooked by modern readers. One important fact needed to fully understand the depth of Lorenzini’s work is that he was an active Freemason. In an essay called Pinocchio, mio Fratello (Pinocchio, my Brother) Italian Freemason Giovanni Malevolti describes the Masonic background of Lorenzini:

“Carlo Collodi’s initiation into Freemasonry, even if cannot be found in any official records, is universally recognized and often referred to. Aldo Mola, a non-mason who is generally defined as an official historian of Freemasonry, has expressed with great certitude the writer’s initiation into the Masonic family. Events in Collodi’s life seem to further confirm this thesis: the creation in 1848 of a paper called “Il Lampione” (The Beacon), which, as stated by Lorenzini, “illuminated all who were teetering in darkness”; he also considered himself a “passionate disciple of Mazzini” (a prominent Italian Freemason and revolutionary).”

Collodi can also be found in this document published by The Grand Lodge of All England listing famous Freemasons.

Malevolti continues:

“There are two ways to read “The Adventures of Pinocchio”. The first is what I would call “profane” where the reader, most probably a child, learns about the mishaps of the wooden puppet. The second is a reading from a Masonic point of view, where heavy symbolism will complete, without replacing, the simple and lineary narration of events”.
– Giovanni Malevolti, Pinocchio, mio Fratello (free translation)

Lorenzini wrote Pinocchio following the long tradition of mystic texts: a simple narrative story that can be enjoyed by the masses with a hidden meaning reserved to those “in the know.”

Analysis of the Movie

There are many differences between Collodi’s book and the Disney movie. The storyline has been simplified and Pinocchio became an innocent, happy-go-lucky character rather than the stubborn and ungrateful misfit from the original book. All of the fundamental elements are still however present in the movie adaption and the underlying message remains untouched.  (I’ve heard you can watch the whole movie here, but I’m not sure).

The Creation

The movie starts off with Geppetto, an Italian woodcarver, turning a piece of wood into a marionette. He gives the puppet human-like features, but it remains a lifeless puppet. Geppetto is, in some ways, the Demiurge of Plato and of the Gnostics. The word “Demiurge” is literally translated from Greek to “maker, artisan or craftsman.” In philosophical terms, the Demiurge is the “lesser god” of the physical world, the entity which creates imperfect beings who are submitted to the pitfalls of the material life. Geppetto’s house is filled with clocks of his craft, which, as you might know, are used to measure time, one of the great limitations of the physical plane.

“Out of the pleroma was individualized the Demiurgus, the immortal mortal, to whom we are responsible for our physical existence and the suffering we must go through in connection with it”
– Manly P. Hall, Secret Teachings of All Ages

Geppetto has created a great-looking marionette, but he realizes that he needs the help of the “Greater God” to give Pinocchio the divine spark needed in order to become a “real boy” or, in esoteric terms, an illuminated man. So what does he do? He “wishes upon a star”. He asks the Greater God (the Great Architect of the Masons) to infuse Pinocchio with some of its divine essence.

Could this star be Sirius, the Blazing Star of Freemasonry?

The “Blue Fairy”, the representative of the Great God, then descends to earth to give Pinocchio a spark of the Universal Mind, the “Nous” of the Gnostics.

“It was affirmed by the Gnostic Christians that the redemption of humanity was assured through the descent of Nous (Universal Mind), who was a great spiritual being superior to the Demiurgus and who, entering into the constitution of man, conferred conscious immortality upon the Demiurgic fabrications.”
– Ibid.

The Fairy confers to Pinocchio the gift of life and free will. Although he is alive, he is not a yet a “real boy”. Mystery schools teach that real life only starts after illumination. Everything prior to this is nothing but slow decay. When Pinocchio asks “Am I a real boy?“, the Fairy replies “No, Pinocchio. To make Geppetto’s wish come true will be entirely up to you. Prove yourself brave, truthful and unselfish and someday you will be a real boy“.

This theme of self-reliance and self-improvement is strongly inspired by Gnostic/Masonic teachings: spiritual salvation is something that has to be deserved through self-discipline, self-knowledge and intense will power. Masons symbolize this process with the allegory of the Rough and Perfect Ashlar.

“‘In speculative Freemasonry, a rough ashlar is an allegory to the uninitiated Freemason prior to his discovering enlightenment. A Perfect Ashlar is an allegory to a Freemason who, through Masonic education, works to achieve an upstanding life and diligently strives to obtain enlightenment. In the Fellowcraft Degree, we see the use of the Rough and Perfect Ashlars.  The lesson to be learned is that by means of education and the acquirement of knowledge, a man improves the state of his spiritual and moral being. Like man, each Rough Ashlar begins as an imperfect stone.  With education, cultivation and brotherly love, man is shaped into a being which has been tried by the square of virtue and encircled by the compasses of his boundaries, given to us by our Creator.”
– Masonic Lodge of Education, Source

The same way Masons represent the process of illumination by the transformation of a rough stone into a smooth one, Pinocchio starts out his journey as a rough piece of wood and will seek to smooth out his edges to finally become a real boy. Nothing is however handed out to him. An inner-alchemical process needs to take place in order for him to be worthy of illumination. He has to go through life, fight its temptations, and, using his conscience (embodied by Jiminy Cricket), he has to find the right path. The first step is to go to school (symbolizing knowledge). After that, life’s temptations rapidly come across Pinocchio’s path.

The Temptation of Fame and Fortune

On his way to school, Pinocchio is stopped by Foulfellow the Fox (not a very trustworthy name) and Gideon the Cat who lure him to the “easy road to success”: show business. Despite his conscience’s warnings, the marionette follows the shady characters and is sold to Stromboli, the belligerent puppet show promoter.

During his performance, Pinocchio is acquainted with the up sides of the “easy road”: fame, fortune and even hot women puppets.

Pinocchio however quickly learns the great costs of this apparent success: he cannot go back to see his father (the Creator), the money he generates is only used to enrich Stromboli, his “handler”, and he sees what fate awaits him when he grows old.

A rather grim depiction of show business, isn’t it? He is basically nothing more than … a puppet. After seeing the true nature of the “easy road”, Pinocchio realizes the sad state he is in. He is caged up like an animal and at the mercy of a cruel puppeteer. He was duped into selling his soul.

Pinocchio then gains back his conscience (Jiminy Cricket) and tries to escape. All of the good conscientiousness in the world cannot however save him, Cricket cannot open the lock.  Nothing less than a divine intervention is needed to save him, but not before he is truthful to the Fairy (the divine messenger) and, most importantly, to himself.

The Temptations of Earthly Pleasures

Back on the right path, Pinocchio is stopped again by Foulfellow the Fox who lures him into going to “Pleasure Island”, a place with no school (knowledge) and laws (morals). Kids can eat, drink, smoke, fight and destroy at will, all under the watchful eye of The Coachman.

Pleasure Island is a metaphor for the “profane life” characterized by ignorance, the search for instant gratification and the satisfaction of the one’s lowest impulses. The coachman encourages this behavior knowing it is a perfect method to create slaves. The boys who indulge enough into this dumbed-down lifestyle turn into donkeys and are then exploited by The Coachman to work in a mine. Another rather grim depiction, this time of the ignorant masses.

Pinocchio himself starts to turn into a donkey. In esoteric terms he is closer to his material self, personified by this stubborn animal, than his spiritual self. This portion of the story is a literary reference to Apuleius’ The Metamorphoses or Golden Ass, a classic work studied in Mystery schools such as Freemasonry.

The Metamorphoses describes the adventures of Lucius who is tempted by the wonders of magic, because of his foolishness, turns himself into an ass. This leads to a long and arduous journey where he is finally saved by Isis and joins her Mystery cult. The story of the Metamorphoses bears many resemblances with Pinocchio by its story line, its spiritual allegory and its theme of occult initiation.

Pinocchio, once he regained his conscience, escaped the prison of profane life and escaped Pleasure Island.

The Initation

Pinocchio returns home to unite with his father but the house is empty. He learns that Geppetto has been swallowed by a giant whale. The puppet then jumps into water himself and gets swallowed by the whale in order to find his Creator. This is his final initiation, where he has to escape the darkness of the ignorant life (symbolized by the womb of the giant whale) and gain spiritual light.

Once again, Carlo Collodi was heavily inspired by a classic story of spiritual Initiation: the Book of Jonah. Found in Christianity, Islam and Judaism, Jonah and the Whale is also read in Mystery schools.

“Jonah is also the central character in the Book of Jonah. Ordered by God to go to the city of Nineveh to prophesy against it “for their great wickedness is come up before me” Jonah seeks instead to flee from “the presence of the Lord” by going to Jaffa and sailing to Tarshish. A huge storm arises and the sailors, realizing this is no ordinary storm, cast lots and learn that Jonah is to blame. Jonah admits this and states that if he is thrown overboard the storm will cease. The sailors try to get the ship to the shore but in failing feel forced to throw him overboard, at which point the sea calms. Jonah is miraculously saved by being swallowed by a large fish specially prepared by God where he spent three days and three nights (Jonah 1:17). In chapter two, while in the great fish, Jonah prays to God in his affliction and commits to thanksgiving and to paying what he has vowed. God commands the fish to vomit Jonah out.”
Source

Jonah after his spiritual initiation

Manly P. Hall explains here the occult meaning of the Jonah and the Whale.

“When used as a symbol of evil, the fish represented the earth (man’s lower nature) and the tomb (the sepulcher of the Mysteries). Thus was Jonah three days in the belly of the “great fish,” as Christ was three days in the tomb. Several early church fathers believed that the “whale” which swallowed Jonah was the symbol of God the Father, who, when the hapless prophet was thrown overboard, accepted Jonah into His own nature until a place of safety was reached. The story of Jonah is really a legend of initiation into the Mysteries, and the “great fish” represents the darkness of ignorance which engulfs man when he is thrown over the side of the ship (is born) into the sea (life).”
– Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages

Jonah emerging from the whale with the word of God

Pinocchio went through the hardships of initiation and came out of the darkness of ignorance. He emerges from tomb resurrected, like Jesus Christ. He is now a “real boy”, an illuminated man who broke the shackles of material life to embrace his higher self. Jiminy Cricket receives a solid gold badge from the Fairy, representing the success of the alchemical process of  transforming Pinocchio’s conscience from a crude metal to gold. The “Great Work” has been accomplished. What is there left to do? A crazy accordion party, of course!

 

In Conclusion

Seen through the eyes of an initiate, Pinocchio’s story, instead of being a series of random adventures, becomes a deeply symbolic spiritual allegory. Details in the movie that are seemingly meaningless suddenly reveal an esoteric truth or at least a brutally honest social commentary. Inspired by metaphysical classics such as The Metamorphoses and Jonah and the Whale, the story’s author, Carlo Collodi, wrote a modern day tale of initiation, which is the most important aspect of Masonic life. Although Walt Disney’s allegiance to Freemasonry has always been disputed, the choice of this story as the second animated movie ever created by the studio is very telling. Many symbolic details added into the movie manifest a great understanding of the underlying occult meaning of Collodi’s book. Considering the numerous re-releases of Pinocchio and its world-wide success one can say that the entire world has witnessed his path to illumination, but very few fully understood it.

When put in relation with other other articles on this site, which reveal rather sinister meanings, the story of Pinocchio is an example of the nobler side of occult teachings. Striving to achieve a higher level of spirituality through self-improvement is a universal theme found in most religions. Pinocchio still remains typically Masonic and reveals the philosophical background of those in control of the mass media.

Very interesting!! Thanks.

As Italian I suggest the name Pin-occhio means pine fruit eye (the pineal gland or third eye).

you forgot about the song '' í've got no strings ''
i see this as a metaphor for being severed from god
being severed from your true destiny
and following your will (as in aleister crowley's ''do as thou wilt'')

the part about being eaten by the whale is a metaphor
for being stuck in the ''belly of the beast (satan)''

Isee it as having free will, god did not put any ‘strings’ on humans, they have free will to choose their own destinies.

i remember as a child i was TERRIFIED of the movie, i now see why. i guess as children we are so pure, that we see evil.

I always wondered what kind of man the creator of Pinocchio was. I find it strangely coincidental the characteristics of the cast. A lonely old man, out of despair for wanting a ‘son’ carves a small boy out of ‘wood’. His powerful ‘love’ for this boy WILLS him to life, with the trait of an external physicality which at times grows into an embarrassing visual result, depicting a certain behavior. I suppose the puppet master’s name is a coincidence. Geppetto (phile)…?

It is a good article, but you still make no distinction between the good and the bad in occultism. Not all occultism or even the branches of Hermetics and Free-masonry are evil or satanic. Not all of practitioners of hidden knowledge use it to control or destroy. Some very prominent bad apples does not mean all users of magic and occult teachings are bad. There are good magicians in high places just as there are bad magicians in high places.

Pinnochio is a very honest story of the path of initiation and the search for enlightenment. It does not necessarily conform with mainstream christian thinking, but it is a work of light and not of darkness.

Pinocchio returns to his father finds him gone… at this stage a human will seek God. The initiated child will be led by the father to become an atheist will so Gippetto will return home no creator. The true God.. . It also represent a time a adult who was initiated as a child and with the magic of the alchemy process at work he is suppose to go and seek out the craftsman/ return to his father.. the seeker will seek out his fathers craft. Throwing himself over board represents several things. First it is the stage which a person joins the secret fraternity But there is a more sinister side of the meaning too. throwing himself over board is another part of the alchemy process the young child is subjected to it is the first step of the alchemy process After dedicating the child to Satan in word,… Read more »
This story does not represent the nobler nature of the mystery religion. It is a story of the alchemy process an occultist/Satanist will use to initiate their child or dedicate their child to the service of Satan. It is a horror story, my horror story in fact. . Geppetto/craftsman/demiurge – The Father of a home …. my father's name was Cecil wishes upon a star/ is the dedication of the child's life to satan Child still has freewill his/her life choices will direct their path/blue fairy represents the mother of the child who the mason carefully selected to bare his child.

I absolutely love this article it's one of the best from VC. From time to time I reread this article because it's that profound. Thank you!

OK, did I see Monarch Programming get a mention in the article? If not , here is a good place to start. Tim Baber a folklore scholar and librarian of 30 years was researching theme parks back in 2002 for his Mudeford sandbank News because a neighbour owned the Alice in Wonderland one near Bournemouth airport. Within a few clicks of Alice in Wonderland Theme Park he discovered Operation Often by the CIA which wanted to make better Manchurian candidates and had heard obviously of the Marionette Syndrome that the Germans (with USA Rockerfeller funding) tried to use to do population thought control, at LEAST for the army anyway.

"Pinocchio … reveals the philosophical background of those in control of the mass media."

Please could you clarify how you came to that conclusion? What do you mean by 'philosophical background'; and how did you conclude that those in control of the mass media care about truth, not to mention self-reliance; considering the media's almost unequivocal endorsement, if not almost mammon-like worship, of ecologically illiteracy; which is the foundation of all animals and species self reliance, not to mention survival?

Thank you so much for this , beautiful article 🙂

So free masons are just people seeking the truth? Are they to be looked at demonic or or they just helping ppl by using the medi to open their eyes ?? why else use all the symbolism for no reason…

excellent article, I read the picture book as a child and it really made an impression on me as a guide to life, and a message to avoid the temptations of Pleasure Island and to have faith in the heavenly Father. It really speaks to the lost meaning of metanoia/repent that is the message of Jesus that has been lost in 'churchianity'. "Religion is a defense against the religious experience." – Carl Jung

To contradict your site's motto, I'd say "Words Rule the World, not Symbols or Laws." Read Northrop Frye if you really want to have an "Educated Imagination," liberated from esoteric systems.

Hi, Thanks for the article but as a critical thinker I may ask, can we found the thesis of a spiritual allegory basing on a "possible" appartenance to freemasonery (I'm talking about Callodi) ? And If we accept this asset, and this is a question I always wanted to ask conspiracy theoricians, what's the purpose of freemasons or Illuminati to show us their beliefs, knowing they strongly believe they detain truth and that we are poor ignorant sinking in the darkness of manipulation? Thank you for answering.

Just a few comments about Stromboli and Disney: IF the story does indeed carry the meaning you attribute to it (very possible) then it is also very likely that there are some additional insights from the Disney production and that the Disney creators were aware of the story line. In the case of Stromboli, it appears that they are alluding to the "showbiz world" as other religions which they consider to be false. Other religions seem to change over time or even be discarded altogether for another or newer belief system (unlike Freemasonry's claim to be from greatest antiquity). The "boy" can stay here and appear to be a real boy only within the context of the showlife, where he has fame, fortune, acceptance, etc…. This point is further stressed by Stromboli's song which he sings as his wagon goes down the road. The song includes Stromboli singing the words,… Read more »

that was a intelligent analysis. Congratulations from Perú

I just finished reading the "Why does Disney hate Parents?" post before clicking on this one. So, with that in mind, I wondered about Geppetto's prayer being answered by a female entity…. Why didn't Geppetto create a "real boy" the old-fashioned way, with the help of a real woman — not a spiritual representation of the "Great God"? Could this be a sugar-coat ideal about pedophila? Maybe, maybe not; but it is something worth considering, seeing how Disney has a track record for dark meanings hidden in their movies. At least Geppetto is not depicted as Catholic…. : )

Disneyland is the biggest people-trap ever built by a mouse.

“Thus was Jonah three days in the belly of the ‘great fish,’ as Christ was three days in the tomb.”–Manly P Hall, the Secret Teachings of All Ages. Manly P Hall structures this comparison as if it were a case of same teaching, different time. The link between both is different though. “Then some of the Pharisees and teachers of the law said to him, ‘Teacher, we want to see a miraculous sign from you.’ He answered, ‘A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a miraculous sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it;… Read more »

Great article, this was one of my favorite movies growing up. Its a shame really.

A little off topic here, I just realized something: anyone remember that shrek character Lord Farquaad (sp?)? What I noticed about him is how much his name sounds like f***wad, I just watched the movie and that's the first thing I noticed.

@Truth: Maybe read this manga [FullMetalAlchemist-FMA*] may gives us some ideas. Guess what~

This manga has been ended about 1 month ago

I think, your words bring me to remember about:

Golden Human, when Tong San Chong reach sutra's~wisdom

why are people disgusted? freaked out? the mystery schools all teach how to become a good human being. they have nothing to do with satan worship. you guys are so brainwashed its scary. do some research. read! alchemy is about turning the crap we are into gold!

The "mystery schools", as you so accurately put it, are not a problem because they teach enlightenment. They're a problem because they're a mystery, and only a select few are given their knowledge. This wouldn't be a problem if they kept to themselves, but as this entire blog tries to show, they've taken over every aspect of society. 5% of the population controls the other 95%, and that is the problem.

This disgusts me ! These ppl need a grip , Jesus is the man to go to ! God is merciful , they need to take the invitation Jesus paved the way to give us .

I just went through a similar experience with Pinocchio, haven't seen it since early childhood and by chance got to see it again a few weeks ago. Definitely a great movie through all the standards you've described above.

lol, the real mystery to me is what the Vigilant Citzen intends people to do with this information?? Darkness and evil has always been around- knowing the truth and living the truth are two separate things. So many people watch these music videos (Beyonce, Rihanna, JZ, lady Gaga) and see these occult practises and think 'oh thats interesting' and then people read your articles and think 'oh what an interesting article'…..and then what?? Are you just trying to be interesting? are u suggesting that all beliefs are ignorant or evil? Or, dare I say it, if these dark forces are real and powerful then where are all the good forces?

So my question to you dear vigilant citizen is where do you stand?

I love Pinocchio!

I am so confused, based on everything I have read on this site, I have viewed "Foulfellow the Fox" to be the illuminati. Luring new starlets to the easy road of success by selling their souls and then tossing them when they are done. Even the Pleasure Island, again based on this site, would have viewed the Coachman to play the part of Illuminati allowing these boys to drug themselves to create slaves. It just seems like that story line coincides with what is going on nowadays with the Illuminati and the media. However this article is explaining the symbolism as that if good and saving Pinnochio from all his misfortunes. It just seems very contradictory and I am so confused. I understand the symbolism in the movie, but I take it that possible his being truthful and praying was more him departing from the occult ways and being reborn… Read more »
Dear Vigilant The best encyclopaedia ever written was British, published over 90 years ago, and before the Shadow Government ordered encyclopaedias and textbooks to be rewritten to reflect their version of reality and to reinforce the illusion they were creating for the modern world. It is the Encyclopedia Britannica published in 1911, which is not only filled with historical information that is still relevant today, but information that has been suppressed under the guise of redaction and modernity. Best regards Lorna Ps. I worry for my future and my sons' future. I have two boys, 16 and 2 respectively. I am born and bred in London. I cannot speak with many folk who share my wonders.

Vigilant reports in the second quoted block “passionate disciple of Mazzini” (a prominent Italian Freemason and revolutionary).” This would have been overlooked by most people reading this unless they were aware of who Mazzini was.

Please note:

A credible explanation of the term connected with Giuseppe Mazzini, who is said to have formed a secret society the members of which were called "Mafiusi," from "Mafia," a word composed of the initial letters of five Italian words:

"Mazzini autorizzafurti, incendi, avvelenamenti, (Mazzini authorises theft, arson and poisoning)" Article entitled "Mafia," Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1911 Edition

I was just thinking that a while ago I read a book about all the occultism in Disney movies. While that book does mention this movie, it doesn't talk about the story itself, but about what was before. According to that book, Pinocchio was based on a midget from the 1800's who did a bunch of bad stuff like rapes and killings.

Full Metal Alchemist is obviously about new age stuff, I mean, alchemy, you serious? It's quite obvious. On the other hand, Princess and the Frog….dude, that s**t is crazy wrong….Now that I think about, many Disney movies are about characters being physically changed; there's Ariel, Pinocchio,…you could even say that Sleeping Beauty and Snow White went through stuff like that.

Wonderful! I love these!

You should totally do an article on Princess And The Frog. I saw it last night, and it is just messed up. My family and friends liked it, but I didn't have enough hard evidence to ruin it for them.

IMPORTANT:

I SUGGEST EVERYONE WATCH A PROGRAMME CALLED FULL METAL ALChEMIST BROTHERHOOD

IT HAS A LOT OF SYMBOLISM ABOUT THE NEW WORLD ORDER AND THE PLOT OF HOW IT IS TAKING PLACE.

JAPAN HAS A LOT TO ANSWER FOR DONT U THINK……….the natioanl flag THE RISING SUN/ OR THE LUCIFIRIAN SON

Hey VC,

Look at the 1st picture you posted under the heading "The Creation" If you look closely at the column behind Geppetto there is a strange looking, crude picture of a plant hanging on it. This plant looks very similar to the one in the mural in the Denver International Airport that the children were surrounding. The one at the aiport seems to have flourished alot. Perhaps the plant symbolizes some sort of breakthrough or small advancement. Maybe I am reaching, but hey…just a Thought

jay's song lyrics "on the next one"

,y’all should be afraid of what I’m gonna do next.

a little unsettling dont you think ?

yeah what carol and 95.BarebackBttm December 30th, 2009 4:35 pm : Said was really eye opening.and i wonder what this world is going to really its just ridiculous when you think about how much money is spent on the sex slave shows orm sumting like that. I also feel sorry for my friends who are listening to those jay-z and rihanna songs

The End is near, so why sell your soul?

DAMN

the bible is altered most of the bible is wrong, facts have been changed. some important things have been removed and lies have been added. Christian scholors of the bible have found over 50,000 mistakes within the bible. so i'll let you decide whether it is real or not. it used to be once upon a time. but now it is mostly made up.

very, very interesting. the end is near, let's all repent.

Oh wow. I think it's amazing that you have all this knowledge to be able to decifer the esoteric meanings behind this kind of stuff. I use to be naive, but ever since the closing of December of last year I found Chris Brown's music video "Fallen Angel" in youtube and it said the meaning behind that song. Then I looked into Rihanna's "Disturbia" and some other ones and that was the beginning of how my mind changed its views. The website WakeUpProject.com also got meh thinking. If you guys haven't watched it, y'all should, it's really interesting and says alot about this conspiracy and the agendas the Elite have instored.

Well, anywayz, great post! xD!

heyyyy can someone find out the meaning to the new princess and the frog movie..that moviie is a little suspicous

As a kid, when I saw something or heard something…Even though I was very little, I had that feeling that something was wrong. I was right ALL the time.

I always hated pinocchio story, it scared the hell out of me and never liked the "fish" part…I just had that feeling, something was wrong about it.

ur article is really interesting!

After reading this site, I can definitely conclude that many of you are smart, intellectual people. However, a lot of you are plagued with paranoia that the world has succumbed to great evil. Though this article was very smart, I think you are over-analyzing things, to put it gently. I sincerely don't believe the entertainers are Satanists and whatnot; no, it is in fact part of popular culture. Perhaps once, it was an 'evil' symbol, but I'm sure it was taken then passed on as no more than a meaningless gesture that become popular for the way it looks. If you looked at it as an outsider, you wouldn't see anything wrong with it at all! You may well call this 'ignorance' and spite me for my comments, but I'm only expressing my own beliefs – I thought that this site was talking about being 'free' of symbolism – and… Read more »
