The Esoteric Symbolism of the Viral Video “I, Pet Goat II”


“I, Pet Goat II” is a computer-animated video that is loaded with silent messages and esoteric symbolism. While the movie has no dialogue, each symbol tells a piece of a story that covers the fields of history, politics, occult conspiracies and spirituality. We’ll look at the esoteric meaning behind the viral sensation “I, Pet Goat II”.

Produced by the Canadian production crew Heliofant, I, Pet Goat II is a short animated movie that quickly went viral on the internet. Praised for its visual feats and its interesting imagery, the video, however, left many puzzled about the meaning of its symbolism. Politics, conspiracies and false flag operations are mixed with esoteric spirituality and occult symbolism in one big mesmerizing mind bender.

After watching the video, many might say something like “What the hell did I just watch?”. The story is somewhat non-linear and there are many cryptic and enigmatic elements in the movie. I won’t claim to fully decode every single symbol-filled frame of the video, but many of the messages are easily understandable due to rather heavy-handed symbolism.

In general, the movie appears to be about the political and social climate of the past decade – complete with puppet Presidents, false flag terror, and mind-controlling sorcerers. Then, through the following of a Christ figure, we leave all the sadness behind to enter a new, sunny era. In short, the story is about the triumph of spiritual enlightenment against the forces of darkness. Let’s look at the movie and at some of its many details.

I, Pet Goat II

The opening scene is already replete with symbolism.

The video begins with an interesting scene: A goat inside a box in what appears to be some sort of detention (FEMA) camp. The goat has a bar-code on its head with the numbers 6 6 6 underneath it. If I, Pet Goat is about liberation from the forces of darkness, this first scene seems to depict the exact opposite. Does this goat represent those who have been “boxed in”, bar-coded and brainwashed by the corrupt system? The usage of the pronoun “I” in the title implies that the goat might be, in fact, the viewer himself.

The Puppet Show that is Politics

In the first part of the video, a hidden puppet master controls George “Dubya” Bush inside a classroom. When the planes struck the World Trade Center in September 2001, Bush was inside a classroom reading the book My Pet Goat to children. The Masonic checkerboard floor of the classroom might signify that this whole charade had a ritualistic component to it.

Bush tap-dances, makes scary faces and says random stuff to keep the masses clueless about the truth.
Above Bush is an interesting graphic depicting the evolution of mankind from fish to monkey, to a man holding a weapon. What is the final stage of evolution? The illuminated man, represented by a sunburst around its head.

Bush wears a dunce cap, this conical hat that was given to “slower” students to humiliate them. When Bush is done making a fool out of himself, he turns into Obama, a charming and distinguished man wearing a graduation cap. He starts off nice and lovable, but he ultimately begins to laugh at the audience. While he appeared to be the perfect response to the idiocy of Bush’s era, the fact remains: He is simply another puppet controlled by the same puppet master.

While most of the audience is totally oblivious to what is happening, one girl is not buying it.

While the masses appear to be deaf, dumb and blind (and restrained by barb wire), this little girl realizes that “this apple is not hers and drops it”. Obama is concerned by the awakening of this girl.

We are then taken to the cold and snowy outside world around the school. On a wall, there’s a graffiti with an important message behind it.

On the school wall is a graffiti saying “Psalm 23”.

The Biblical verse that is referred to by the graffiti appears to foretell the journey viewers are about to embark on.

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul. He guides me along the right paths for his name’s sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely your goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.

– Psalm 23, NIV

A World in Decay

The outside world is dark, cold and literally in decay. It is sad, corrupt and everything is shaking and crumbling down.

At one point, two towers – reminiscent of the WTC – fall down. We then learn that it was an inside job.

Bin Laden is wearing a CIA badge, hinting at the fact that he was a tool used by the American government to advance its agenda. The moon crescent, a symbol associated with Islam, is reversed, which may be a way of saying that all this Al-Qaeda stuff is a perversion and an exploitation of Islam.

While oil leaks from everywhere, a six-pointed star appears under the Statue of Liberty, renamed by the makers of the movie “Lady of Helotry” (“helotry” means serfdom or slavery).

Is the six-pointed star (also known as the Star of David) appearing under the Lady of Helotry a way of saying that the US is highly influenced by Israel?

While the world is crumbling down, many ancient institutions disappear or get destroyed.

This Mosque is destroyed by fighter jets.
This Latino worker is sinking, along with his hammer and sickle – representing the disappearance of Marxism in third world countries. On Heliofant’s official site it is said: “After years of economic exploitation and the environmental degradation, Juan “Pepito” has a decidedly sinking feeling.”

Controlling the Masses

The world is under the spell of an evil sorcerer named Drako. According to the makers of  the movie, Drako is:

“The Sorcerer, the unseen hand and spirit of madness seeking ever more control through trickery, lies, poisons, false-flag events, wars, and mountains of bureaucratic and legal framework to siphon off the energy of the inhabitants of the earth. He fears the light of day as he fears life itself, and operates in the shadows. His greatest power is his hold on the issuance of the currency.”

Does this sound like what we call the Illuminati? Yes, yes it does.

The same way the Illuminati seeks to brainwash children since birth, Drako preys on this unborn child named Ludovic.

Drako’s reptilian eye awaits the birth of Ludovic.
In esoteric tradition, the symbol of the serpent-entwined egg is known as the Orphic Egg. In short, it represents the latent seed of life and the infinite potential of creation. In other words, while this child appears to be hopeless, he still has the power to reach his full potential.

When the egg is hatched and the child is born, Drako literally takes control of his mind in a creepy, parasitic way.

Drako has the pyramid and all-seeing eye found on the US dollar bill on his chin. Not only does it represent the fact that he controls the currency, it also represents the Illuminati. Underneath Drako’s eyes is the saying “Ordo Ab Chao” – meaning Order Out of Chaos, the occult elite’s favorite slogan. Also, the dude has only one eye open. Could he, like, more represent the Illuminati?


The Liberator

Amid all this chaos, a figure emerges with the power to make everything right.

Navigating on an Egyptian ceremonial boat, Jesus Christ appears to be in trance.

The Christ-like figure has a third eye painted right on the pineal gland, which refers to the concept of spiritual illumination. The triangle above the eye represents divinity and that illumination leads to the contact with one’s own divine nature. The symbols on Christ’s forehead are in complete opposition to pyramid on Drako’s chin. While both figures bear similar symbols on their faces, Christ has them “right” and Drako has them in reverse/inverted, meaning that he (and the Illuminati) have corrupted these ancient symbols.

Named by the makers of the video “The Fire of Truth”, the Christ figure is not meant to be Jesus Christ himself, but a representation of the concept of Inner Christ as defined by Gnosticism. According to this esoteric current of Christianity, the Inner Christ is the potential found in everyone to reach godhood through spiritual illumination. On Heliofant’s website, The Fire of Truth is described as:

“That’s YOU!!! when you stand in the awareness of your sonship with the Divine and the brotherhood of mankind!!! “

When the Christ figure breathes the Fire of Truth on the world, some oppressed or distressed characters come back to life, like Ludovic, the child inside the egg. Also, Aali, a little Muslim boy that appeared battered and dead rises back to life.

Little Aali rises up from the crumbles of the destroyed Mosque, twirling in traditional Dervish attire.

The boy is executing the ancient art of Sufi whirling, which is practiced by the Sufi Dervishes of the Mevlevi order. The Dervishes are an ancient esoteric current of Islam.

“The mysteries of the Islamic faith are now in the keeping of the dervishes – men who, renouncing worldliness, have withstood the test of a thousand and one days of temptation. Jelal-ud-din, the great Persian Sufic poet and philosopher, is accredited with having founded the Order of Mevlevi, or the “dancing dervishes,” whose movements exoterically signify the motions of the celestial bodies and esoterically result in the establishment of a rhythm which stimulates the centers of spiritual consciousness within the dancer’s body.”
– Manly P. Hall, The Secret Teachings of All Ages

Whirling Dervishes

The rebirth of the Muslim boy as a Whirling Dervish signals that there is a link between him and the Inner Christ: Both represent initiation into esoteric schools, which all have a common goal – the contact with divinity through spiritual illumination. Other religions with esoteric undercurrents such as Hinduism (represented by a dancing Shiva), are also represented in the movie. Is the Christ figure maybe the Anti-Christ deceiving all religions into following him? Perhaps.

When the Christ figure exits the Cathedral, the building (which was guarded by an evil-looking gargoyle) crumbles behind him.

In this new era of spiritual enlightenment, elaborate man-made buildings become unnecessary and outdated. They therefore crumble and disappear.

As night turns into day, the Christ figure opens his fiery eyes and navigates towards the sunlight. Lotus flowers, symbols of spiritual enlightenment in Eastern philosophy, appear behind him, confirming to the viewers that the path to freedom is indeed a spiritual one.

In Conclusion

I, Pet Goat II has received widespread acclaim for its technical prowess and its original storytelling. Although there is no narration or dialogue, an elaborate story is delivered using the most ancient and universal language in History: Symbolism. Through symbols, the movie manages to deliver an acerbic critique of today’s Western Civilization, to describe its numerous evils and even to predict its inevitable downfall. More importantly, a thorough decoding of the movie’s symbolism reveals a powerful message of spiritual enlightenment based on ancient Mysteries. While this esoteric aspect of the movie might not be understood by many, it is at the core of the movie and is presented as the ultimate solution to the evils and corruption of today’s world. The movie’s conclusion is, therefore, a very personal one: Either YOU become a pet goat with a 666 bar-code on your forehead or YOU become a Christ figure with a third eye on your forehead. This notion of personal enlightenment is definitively a Gnostic one and is common to most esoteric schools of thoughts in all civilizations.

Agreeing or disagreeing with the movie’s spiritual conclusion is a question of personal beliefs, but it is nevertheless obvious that those behind I, Pet Goat II are “in the know” about all things occult, esoteric and even conspiratorial. Each scene has a profound underlying story behind it – whether it be historical, political or spiritual – that would take pages and pages of words to thoroughly explain. Therein lie the power of symbols: They can simply be admired for their aesthetic beauty or they can, when fully understood, reveal a profound story about humanity, God and everything in between.

This video is about the rise of the antichrist.

I think the beginning (the hypnotized goat with te 666 on the forehead) is actually the end, after the "supposed Christ like figure" arises.

From all of the chaos, there will come one who appears to be the savior and leaves religions behind to become a "spiritual enligthened" one.

Therefore, I am not buying that's JC. And VigilantCitizen, I am in shocked you buyed into it!


[quote]I found it creepy also. Whose side is the creator of said video is on, Us or them?!?[/quote]

I saw this video before VC did an interpretation. I usually agree with VC's analysis BUT disagree largely with I Pet Goat.

IMO this is a pro-illuminati snare. YOU have to understand the Hegelian Dialectic:

1- Problem = Create a WWE type bad guy — The Illuminati — Big Brother corrupt world system

Check! This has been done

2- Reaction = Wait for people to rebel and protest this evil system — start to "wake up" to the Big Brother system. This is happening now.

3- Solution = Introduce a one world Religious leader who claims that the dogmas of the ancient religions are the cause of all this strife. This is what the "Christ figure" is at the end. He's the false Christ who blends all the religions into one. HE is the ultimate trap.


This vid is decieving. The illuminated pyramid will always represents the enemy. It doesn't matter if its flipped upside down or not. I definitely think this was to get people to accept the anti.


"…God is not one eyed while the false Messiah is blind in the right eye and his eye looks like a bulging out grape"

Prophet mohamed [Sahih al-Bukhari, 3:30:105]


This is not Christ. Definitely the Anti-Christ floating on an Egyptian boat. Since Yahshua was a fisherman, the fishes jumping into his boat seems to be a trick, fooling the masses. Plus floating towards the sun could be a Sun God reference(Satan). I'm glad this video has us airing our differences but we need to take this same energy and continue to educate the masses( non believers).


Part 3 cont…
, actually thinking that they will in fact win this endtime war that COMING so soon that i don't know if we even have days yet and this is a study i've been in for over 20 years an the past 2 yrs of my study have far exceded the past 20..( i'll cut this short but plz so many answers are on youtube I recommonded watching youtube videos by "thejonathankleck" knowthetruthstudios" an "thescariestmovieever" for a MAJOR wake up call but ONLY those that TRULY want to know the truth will see btw that Christ figure at the end represents the new-age christ meaning the anti-christ NOT the TRUE SON of the Living God YESHUA (Jesus Christ)– I'm not meaning to offend anyone its just that time is truly shorter then most know an RFID chip is going to soon be mandetory (mark of the beast) don't take it its the finally act of rebellion against God and there is NO salvation for those that do,,,,etc…


There is WAY more symbolism in here then VC mentions. The phallic symbolism, when it zooms in on that igloo like light house, it looks like it is on a body made of ice, essential the light house is a penis… And there is a woman trapped inside (Or the bars seems to indicate entrapment anyway), which I found interesting, she is older and topless, does she draw power from where she is, as she is in a light house, but when a light shines down on the heavens, she seems to awaken and begins casting spells. Which then mobilizes basically every non-Christian religion, many people dancing and casting spells of some sort. I found that section to be the most intriguing. Besides the fact that the so-called Messianic figure has his eyes shut, until he exits the tunnel, after all these people perform these magic rites, which seems to imply he does not actually have the power, but is connected to them, and that maybe it was even him who brought about the destruction, he is only a representation a figurehead. I also found it interesting that the little girl with the apple resembles Alice from Alice in Wunderland,… Read more »


Here's what I think about this video: The video is WITH the Illuminati. Here's the plan that I see. 1. The Illuminati makes a mess out of everything. 2. Within the mess, videos like this will come out. 3. This video will tell us that in this time of trouble, the only thing we can do is embrace the sense of spiritual enlightenment. Not building a connection with God, but having a godly feeling out of being spiritually enlightened. I suddenly remembered what Oprah said in one of her episodes, "god is not an entity, it is a feeling." From what I can see here, the Illuminati is doing the same programming process with everyone. We are being tormented by the global problems uprising, and it is being imposed in our minds that we can't do anything, and videos like this would come out to push us into what we call as "spiritual enlightenment". This "spiritual enlightenment" is not what we believe as "having firm faith in God", this "enlightenment" is detaching from reality, focusing on yourself to have that godly feeling within, that you are the center of your own life, without God as your Guide. They are trying… Read more »

Am I the only one who noticed that in the title “I, Pet Goat II”, “I, Pet Goat” uses exactly 9 characters? I1,2P3e4t5G6o7a8t9 and II can easily mean 11. Thus, 9/11.


The art of disinformation…..The Jesus(YAHSHUA) i know does not emerge from the underworld with a boat shaped with the head of anubis!! The bible says, EVERY eye shall see the second coming, as the lightning shines from the west to the east, so shall the coming of the Son of man be!! This video is dedicated to the false prince of peace….the antichrist and the beast system along with the false prophetQ They mix in alota truth with their propoganda, and it's crafty, but if u seek u shall find the truth!! I Agree with u 100%!!


Never thought we will be living in the greatest movie script of all time.. god bless of all u brothers.

Follow jesus christ with all your hearts and NOT THIS ONE depicted in this animation.


This is my theory, and I wouldn't mind and would in fact appreciate VC for correcting me if I'm wrong, but he isn't a Christian in he traditional sense of the word (although he makes this somewhat clear as he describes himself as a "Mystic Christian." But what I mean is that VC doesn't believe in Christ in the way most people do. Christ, like everything else on this site, is merely a symbol. The return of Christ isn't something literal, that is to say, a supernatural angel dude will end up saving us incompetent humans. The return of Christ can also be interpreted as the return of Christ Consciousness throughout humanity, thus enabling us to save ourselves. Christ Consciousness can be likened to Enlightenment, like the Buddha. In fact, many non Christian people around the world believe that Jesus existed, but not a son of a supernatural God, but as a brave, enlightened yet normal human being. His legacy was ultimately manipulated by men who crave power and control over people, thus the birth of the modern day Church. The way to end the rule of those parasitic esoteric manipulators is simply by transcending the Ego. Jesus did this.… Read more »


I think Christ in this vid has more of an Egyptian meaning. The boat on which he is on has the head of Anubis, God of the Dead, on it, and when he leaves the cave he sails towards the sun, Sun God Ra. I'm thinking that ancient beliefs/spirituality will be ''resurrected'' through Jesus.

Joe Law

did you guys saw the asteroid hitting the pyramid at the end of the clip…??…weird

Mark Gustafson

Well, I have corresponded with the publisher and he disavows knowledge of future events. He did suggest that the sowers of inequity would soon be driven mad and begin conflicting – whether such conflict involves us is unknown.

If you hold the title page upside down and place the image in front of a mirror, the title appears to present an internet address or email address. I tried both with no obvious result. Note that VC failed to mention that in the final seconds, fireballs emit from the sun, destroying the Egyptian pyramids and presumably anything else in the way.

Only one thing is currently clear – everything you see and read is being manipulated and the only certain thing is the fact of the manipulation. Go with the flow and learn to recognize the "tells" – they are everywhere.

Slave Of The One Tru

I get a slight different take on the "Christ-like" figure and the crumbling of the church… The crumbling of the church by this "Christ-like" figure seems to represent or imply that you don't need religion to reach to know God or have spirituality, everything you need for spirituality is in your "inner-self".


So much symbolism! And I agree with the others who say that is not the real Messiah, just an imitation.

I wonder if those that are behind this video are for or against what they have depicted in their video?


Did you notice how the sun at the end destroys the temple in the background? I think the sun represents Jesus. And how he's going to face off against the fake christ.

This is the most amazing piece of digital art I've ever seen.

That being said, after watching this about ten times I realized that the false world, as described by all the symbols that the "The Fire of Truth" is passing through with his eyes closed, only falls away when he opens his eyes and turns away from that world.

That's how we hasten the demise of The Beast: by opening our eyes.


Did you people not read? The Christ-like figure is not supposed to be the Anti-Christ. The pyramid above the eye means spiritual enlightenment not illuminati. Drako had the inverted eye above the pyramid on his chin, he was the anti-christ. If this video was satanic in any way they wouldn't of put Psalm23 on there. I think it's a work of art.

Lim Lynn

Anyway, did you know Sean Pagans, Satanists and Freemasons will misinterpret Biblical scripture for their personal use.


We are all sparks of God's consciousess, we are all creators, we are all one and one with God. We are all extremely powerful beings that have been tricked into believing we are powerless mortals, through fear. We are one with God, and therefore are being urged in this video to reconnect with God and watch as the beast and its structures crumble to the ground.

Ask yourself this, what message did you personally get from this video? What did you feel in your heart after it was over? We are all at different stages of awakening/our spiritual paths/Ascension, and therefore will all be affected differently. Just go with your intuition, your heart always and the golden age will arrive in the blink of an eye!


Christians 'stole' their mythology from the Egyptians anyway.

John Boy

Dude that argument is tired, overused and completely shot to s**t years ago. Come up with a new one why don't you


I think that's wrong if I'm not mistaken they got it from Jews not egyptians. But I could be wrong if I'm not show me proof please and thank you.

God bless.


The Israelites were in captivity for a long time in Egypt, and there was definitely some cultural and religious cross-pollination. The entire Mediterranean complex of culture and religion shares traits across nations and ethnic groups.

Third Impact

Actually, Egyptian mythology and other ancient mythology that existed around the time of the 1st century AD were reworked due to the heavy influence of Christianity. The original form of mythology bore little resemblance to Christianity prior the emergence of Christianity.

"Civilization will not attain perfection until the last stone from the last church falls on the last priest."


The only way back to Godhead is through Christ/Krsna consciousness. Without these teachings/philosophies in religion, the religion itself has no real purpose other than to keep you enslaved in the matrix, and a slave to your mind. The entire point of life or test, is to live with love and compassion in your heart, and to achieve Krsna/Christ consciousness.


Sadly you have know idea what you are talking about, and without Christ/Krsna consciousness teachings in religions, religion serves no purpose other than to keep you a slave of the matrix and your mind.


The majority of peopleOrthodoxt Christians.

OF COURSE they atre going to interpret this in light of their belifs. (I happen to be like them, BTW).

YOU don't know the truth either, smart-ass.

Some other observations: 0:09 – The Goat (general public) stares as if in a trance while boxed and caged. A barcode (like our Social Security Number) is stamped on his forehead. 0:30 – Bush distracts the public while dancing under a pentagram spotlight. 0:37 – On the wall of the classroom, a map of USA hangs with push-pins on NYC, New Orleans, Oklahoma City, and the Gulf of Mexico (BP's Deep Horizon?). 0:54 – Also on the wall, picture of the human brain with the hemispheres separated (so not fully functional). An image of a dragon is mounted next to the brain, with tongue nearly touching the right hemisphere. 1:05 – Bush morphs into Obama. Same puppet master, different puppet. 1:55 – As the towers fall, squibs can be seen supporting the theory that the collapse was a controlled demolition. 2:04 – A figure, wearing a persona of sadness, falls from height. (as victims of WTC on 9/11 did?) 2:30 – As we zoom up to the Lady of Helotry (Statue of Liberty) her torch, representing progress, breaks away and falls. The country falls into darkness. 2:55 – Ludovic, incapacitated by Dracko (TV screen representing the mass media?) 3:11 –… Read more »


You missed the many squibs going off as the towers fell. Look at it. It goes down differently than all the other structures. It goes down like the towers did. Controlled Demolition charges can be seen all the way down.

I mention the squibs at mark 01:55

What I did omit was Newton's Third Law, F=-F at 0:54. For every action there's opposite action of equal force (not that it matters on this page of science challenged individuals).

openyoureyesnclose y

thank u.. i was wondering what that equation was! & if this is shown while we know the evil puppeteer is working, reinforces for me that for all the evil they put in the world, there is an equal amount of good that will come an rectify that evil .

(this is not so much for your comment)

Im not so convinced its the anit christ. Christianity is not the only religion that believes in an evil entity.. "satan" has many names and evil is personified in most world cultures. The Gnostic Christan texts are MUCH older than the collected, re-translated, king James version of Christianity. Jesus taught that "

openyoureyesnclose y

sorry.. cut off.. Jesus says in the Gnostic Scripture, Gospels of Thomas, as he does in the king James version the very thing the video makes clear "THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS WITHIN YOU". American King James Version Luke: "Neither shall they say, See here! or, see there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you." Dead Sea Scrolls, Gospel of Thomas "(3) Jesus said: If those who lead you say unto you: Behold, the Kingdom is in heaven, then the birds of the heaven will be before you. If they say unto you: It is in the sea, then the fish will be before you. But the Kingdom is within you, and it is outside of you. When you know yourselves, then shall you be known, and you shall know that you are the sons of the living Father. But if ye do not know yourselves, then you are in poverty, and you are poverty." Now.. who got what from who? … and the latter is way more poignant and speaks to the souls of man. Its much more liberating than the newer KJ version… you cant control ppl with words this powerful, you can only free them… Read more »

From other sources, I have read that the Illuminati believe in "balance", so for every evil they plan on doing, they will "balance" it out with good. Applied to this video, I would say that the Conspiracy (I believe that the Illuminati themselves might just be puppets of an even more evil group) plans on creating a great deal of harm, with the belief that this will "balance" out the "good" they plan on creating.

Hence, for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. For the greater evil they create, the greater good that will come to counter it. At least, that is their belief.
