There comes a time when we all question ourselves – what is real? The one that we see or believe, or the one we only assume. We also ponder at times what has given birth to all those thousands of myths or legendary stories that we hear from our ancestors. One of such urban legend or so as people say is Illuminati.
As we are going through the official website of Illuminati, they claim that it is, first and foremost, an elite society. They claim it is a secret society that has its influence on everything around the world. From world leaders to business authorities, from innovators to artists. So, whatever happens in the world, it is controlled by a unit of some prominent individuals who are strategically placed on every corner of the world we see.
Naturally, we don’t have a full-proof evident of its existence. Still, every now and then, people come up with some theories that raise some questions in our minds. So, in this article, we will dive deep and try to highlight all the factors to figure out how much reality exists behind the door.
What is the Illuminati ?
The secret organization was formed back in 1773 by a professor named Adam Weishaupt, who gave lectures in Canon Law and practical philosophy at the University of Ingolstadt. Professor Weishaupt was a non-clerical staff member in the institute, which was later dissolved by Pope Clement XIV in 1773. Weishaupt revolted against the Jesuits of Ingolstadt and revolutionized the idea of enlightenment. After that, on May 1st, 1776, he formed the Bavarian Illuminati with some trusted followers who he believed to have a similar mindset.
Soon the secret group began to spread their agendas like overthrowing superstition, obscurantism, and several over religious magnetisms over civic life. Illuminati also join hands with some other secret societies to amplify the cause. One such significant group is Freemasonry that also had a similar motive to the Bavarian Illuminati.
The Bloodlines of Illuminati
According to a case study report by a CIA agent Fritz Springmeier in 1995, 13 families around the world is controlling this secret society. Now, Springmeier has taken a different route in explaining the purpose of the involvement of these families. He stated that John Jacob Astor is the founder of the bloodline that serves the dark lord Satan. According to Springmeier, the Astors were the first family to carry out the deeds for a plan of world domination. Now, we will talk about the rest of the 13 families of this group as well.
John Jacob Astor belongs to a Jewish bloodline. In a quest to glorify the heritage of his family and to spread the occult ideas of Secret society, he was executed in Walldorf. However, he got ample time to carry out his messages to the world. The Astor kept their traditions intact and kept on serving the propagandas of Illumination Bloodline.
The Bundy family is known to the world as a notorious bloodline. Some experts speculated that McGeorge Bundy was the mastermind behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. However, many also overlooked their family history. Fritz Springmeier, on the other hand, believed the Bundys carried out more nuisance activities and pretended they are not lethal to the society, which makes them more deadly.
Most other families tried to keep the heat for the Collins family as they believed the Collins have superior occult powers from the rest. According to Springmeier, the Collins family typically hold the meetings and discuss terms and strategies that need to be carried out. Jim & John Collins were specialist writers who wrote books to widespread agendas of this secret group. At the same time, James Foster Collins worked for the United Nations and the US Intelligence for 2 years.
It is believed that the DuPont family has a dynasty of Satanic royalty. Springmeier is convinced that the DuPonts maintain dual status in the society. While they retain their family tradition and carry out usual business deals, they are a group of people camouflaging themselves to conduct Satanic occult activities secretly. They practice intermarriage between the Balls and the Gardners, which many believed to be a Satanic tradition.
Springmeier explained the Freeman Bloodline that did stuff in discreet. All for the betterment of one single purpose – to benefit the Secret society ways of promoting Satanic activities. Stephen M. Freeman, for example, was in the Legal Affairs Dept. of the Civil Rights Division of the Anti-Defamation League. We can also take the reference from Walter Freeman, who introduced Lobotomy in the US in association with James W. Watts in 1936.
Kennedy is a common last name all around the globe. But the one that Springmeier mentioned is from Ireland. He believes the Kennedys associated with the Illuminati are the descendants of Brian Born, originally from Ireland. However, he also believes that the Kennedy Bloodline later split down to three branches – Don, Fionn, and Rua, and moved to different parts of the world to carry out Satanic tasks. Arguably, the Kennedys have the highest number of family members.
Any secret organization is incomplete without the involvement of China. The Li Bloodline is, of course, one of the integral parts of spreading any agenda. As per Springmeier, the Li family is closely associated with Red China, parts in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Taiwan. They control the Asian and Oceanic parts of the world and are just as powerful and influential as the rest of the Illuminati Bloodlines.
Now, here is a story of a self-made man – Aristotle Socrates Onassis. As per Springmeier’s research, Onassis had nothing when he was 21. Miraculously he became a millionaire in just 2 years when he was 23. He was intelligent, smart, and ruthless. That has made him an Illuminati king. However, it is hard to find traces of his sudden success.
Every cause needs money to sustain. The Rothschild Bloodline is the lifeline of this secret society, according to Springmeier. Being one of the members of Seal of Solomon, Springmeier believe the Rothschilds worshipped Satan for ages. It is estimated that they own more than 500 trillion US dollars, and some also think only 3 countries don’t have the economic influence of the Rothschild family. Those are North Korea, Sudan, and Cuba.
Similar to the Rothschild family, the Rockefeller Bloodline is also genuinely inclined to monetary benefits of the Illuminati. For ages, they, too, are devoted to Satanic activities and become part of financial aids to fulfil the cause, as per Springmeier. He believes the family’s net worth is 11 trillion US dollars, and can pretty much control every working units of the society. He also added that there are 190 members actively working for Illuminati (as of 1995).
The Russel Bloodline is best known to perform the rituals for the dark lord. Springmeier mentioned in his journal that they perform ancient gnostics that symbolizes saying no to the Body of Christ. It is for that reason the Russell family is called the Watchtower of Illuminati. Springmeier believes that they perform a yearly ritual under the disguise of the Memorial Supper.
Van Duyn Bloodline
According to Springmeier, Van Duyn Bloodline is a Dutch family. He suggested that there are tons of connections in the Netherlands with Illuminati. He firmly believes that the Van Duyns are closely associated with the MI6. So, it can have its foothold on the CIA and MOSSAD as well. However, Springmeier also confessed that he doesn’t have all the pieces of the puzzle to claim its authenticity.
The Merovingian Bloodline is the most enigmatic of all the 13 families we have discussed as per Springmeier. He claims that dozens of activities related to the US Presidents, and yet no traces afterward. The family knows how to operate on a
secretive level to get what needs to be done. Springmeier claimed that they are “The Thirteenth Satanic Bloodline.”
Apart from all these core 13 families or we call the Illuminati Bloodline, Springmeier also believes that there are some additional families as well who are secretly carrying out the deeps of this Satanic movement. Some of the notable names are Reynolds, Disney, Krupp, and McDonald.
The Purpose of this secret society
After checking out the Illuminati Bloodlines according to the perspective of Fritz Springmeier, it is time to look towards what practical information we have on this Illuminati. So, we choose the simple route and looked for any information online. To our surprise, this mischievous group owns a website – https://www.illuminatiofficial.org/. So, we rounded up there and checked all the information the site is offering. Let us first learn about the purpose of this secret society.
The first thing they claim is that it is not a church, neither it is a religion. They don’t pretend as a political group or a charity either. They believe they are an elite group of people who have dedicated their lives to influence agendas that are or will aid humankind. They strongly believe in unity but equally demands discreetness in everything they do. Moreover, they claim that every decision they have made so far are absolutely individual.
They didn’t seek the counsel of any government body or religion. What they believe they are doing or did is all for the betterment of the human race and all other living species in the planet earth. However, they also expect no worship, appraisal, or appreciation for any act they performed or will perform in the future.
Now, while we know the purpose of this secret counsel to be in existence, they also suggested they need people to help them in their cause. Meaning you can join them if you wish to. At least, that is what their official website is suggesting. However, there is a selection process, as well. So, it indicates that you have to be worthy to become an Illuminati member. That said the parameter to judge the quality level is unknown.
What they have suggested is you can join the group as long as you feel the same way as they do. Meaning your line of thinking and your actions must align with them to get an entry in this elite group. There are some words of cautions as well – you must leave whichever religion you follow or wherever you stay. Along with that, you must dedicate your soul interest for the cause that helps humans and other living species to thrive on this planet.
As we are drawing more references from their official website, we have learned that there are 4 general beliefs based on which the entire Illuminati operations do work. Please note that there is no substantial evidence that proves whatever they are saying they are doing the same or not. We will conclude that later in this article. Now, let us know what the 4 beliefs of Illuminati are.
1. The Pyramid
They are saying, “Money Is Not the Root of All Evil, Money Is the Route to All Freedom.” Considering Illuminati is a secret society with dubious agendas that firmly contradicts with the one right now, the belief what they called the Pyramid can be beneficial to the human race. They are claiming the put a lot of efforts to maintain the balance, to overcome the greed to earn money. They instead claim to use money as a tool for the betterment of humanity as a whole.
“The selfish pursuit of money is a hollow goal, but the pursuit of the goodness that money can create is one of humanity’s greatest responsibilities” – this is another quote they claim they believe. What they mean is that it is your duty to earn money. But making money shouldn’t be the inspiration. It is what you do with it that matters. Meaning with each penny that you earn you have a moral responsibility to spend it for the betterment of the humankind.
One last quote they often use is, “Money has no feeling, no voice, and no soul – its choice between good or evil is decided by those who use it.” This compelling belief can be beneficial if the world we live in doesn’t have greed or selfishness in the air. What they are suggesting is if you are poor, it is okay to be selfish and bother about yourself and your family. But if you have a ton of money, it is not okay to find means to squeeze them from the poor. Instead, you should find ways to help the poor to maintain the balance in nature as much as you can.
So, ultimately, the Illuminati members believe that money itself is neither good or evil. The Pyramid suggests how you should be the one who wields money for the betterment of all lives on earth.
2. The Eye
One of their first quotes while elaborating this belief that they have is, “We are always watching out for you.” Now, you usually may wonder – are they interfering with our privacy? Well, we are not sure of that. For now, let us assume they mean to take care of us, the humankind, whenever we need help.
The second quote that we have observed in their official website is, “The human species is guarded and preserved by a coalition of its most elite members called the Illuminati.” For this, they claim that since the time Illuminati is created, they ensured that human being doesn’t run into chaos. They also claimed they had maintained a balance to make sure people doesn’t fight over and create mass destruction that could lead to global extinction.
Then even claimed that they had played a crucial role in humans to become the dominant being on this planet. So, in simple terms, they are taking credits for the evolution of humanity into the one we are now. However, the question remains – why the world wars happened then? Where was the Illuminati order that claimed to keep an eye upon us on our desperate needs? Guess we will never know!
“Living humans evolve at a rapid pace, and can continue to advance in ability through study, practice, and a commitment to self-improvement” – this is yet another quote we have found they believe. The order believes that some people reach a certain level of intellect and gain wisdom which other only dreams. The secret society typically calls this the Awakening. They believe all the members they eventually choose have been Awakened and their Eye has been opened. So, for all these years, they were recruiting individuals with extraordinary abilities to sustain what they believe. They have mentioned the involvement of leaders, innovators, and influential peoples who trust the cause to build a better world.
One last thing they mentioned is, “To create a better world, unique beings with unique objectives and beliefs must forgo their differences and work together for the good of all.” Now, this belief is somewhat we all know and understand its capabilities. Yes, we are talking about working together. The Eye Awakening, as the secret society described, is a state that promotes working together irrespective of their individual differences.
Now, that can be a difference in opinions, races, religious beliefs, or languages. However, the Illuminati order regrettably mentioned that people are driven by selfish reasons, which is a barrier to the cause. Although, they claim they are preparing ways to influence cooperation among human beings as well, and therefore, the Eye is necessary.
3. The Light
They say, “Follow the Light.” As we are learning what the morality of that belief is, we can stumble upon one thing – they want us to guide us. Now, the question remains – guide us to where? What they actually mean is they want us to follow an invisible Light that will lead us to become a good person. So, they claim their endgame is to make us the better version of ourselves.
The first quote that we have observed on the Light while going through their site is, “Every human is guided by an inner compass that points toward the Light, revealing truth and direction when facing decisions.” The secret society urges that the scientist are also convinced that there are some mystical forces of nature that guides us, and if necessary, moulds us accordingly.
So, Illuminati wants to explore that force what they are calling the Light. They believe this is a positive force which extracts the best version of each individual. And, eventually, if a group of people follow the Light, they can achieve something miraculous and thrive on that. They also claimed some individuals have already felt the Light and are selflessly following it for the glory of humankind.
The next quote they have mentioned about the Light is, “All human religions and spiritual beliefs ultimately seek the Light in ways differing only in form and function.” As per the information they have shared, we can come to the conclusion of a one-religion perspective. They believe everybody has their own religious beliefs. But they claim that the individuals who have been led by the Light believe in one unified religion.
For them, there is no Christ, no Allah or Krishna. They are one and believe in one simple idea – to serve the human race, and above all, serve the mother nature. They claim that same Light guides all the Illuminati members, and in future, that very Light will guide them to seek for new followers.
The third quote about the Light they have mentioned is, “There is no proof that a God exists, but there is also no proof that a God does not.” What they practically mean is they don’t want to quarrel on whether there is an existence of God or not. Instead, they trust the intellectual minds of the world the Light guides those. Now, we can raise a question decision imposed by those co-called intellectuals guided by the Light. However, for this, they believe every Illuminati member know what their purpose is. Based on that they take any decision which the Light shows to them.
“The Light, under many names, has been attributed to supernatural changes in the physical realm, including increases in wealth, power, prestige, health, and happiness.” This is yet another quote they have used in their website regarding the Light. The quote, along with its belief is strangely real as we have observed. Whatever technological advancements we have achieved, scientists also believe there is still an infinite thing that we don’t know yet about the universe we live in.
So, whatever we don’t know, we call them supernatural. Now, the secret society claims that the Light guides some individuals to those so-called occult paths, which in reality is the unknown factors the world doesn’t know much about. They explained they perform certain rituals to get what they want, which they are doing for centuries. Eventually, those rituals act as the energy source for the Light as per an Illuminati member. Meanwhile, they firmly mentioned that the ceremonies don’t include any sort of human or animal sacrifice.
The final quote they used for the Light is, “A desire to understand the Light is an integral part of the path to illumination.” This message is pretty straightforward – follow what your mind is suggesting you, which will guide you to the Light. They believe it is all in our mind, our thoughts and our beliefs that transcends who we are and what we will do. The Light will guide them to do the right thing.
4. The Eternal Circle
“Every human is one part of a larger, eternal design – individual gears in a clock that has no end.” This is what the initial thought behind this belief. Illuminati believes everything we do, and everything we will do are all a part of a greater system. We, humans, play an integral role in that system to maintain the balance of the universe. However, the key is to work as a unit. It is the dependency towards one another makes every human invaluable, which they call the Eternal Circle.
Again, while we are trying to figure out the Eternal Circle, the first quote that we have noticed is, “Your actions have the power to alter the future of the entire world.” They tried to explain to us that it is hard to know the real purpose of one’s life existence. Still, we can determine it through the various actions we take on different levels. They claim that everything is interconnected to a greater design. The Eternal Circle let anyone realises the importance of their true existence. It influences people to explore the best version of themselves and allow them to take the best course of action that serves everybody as a
The next interesting quote that we have seen regarding the Eternal Circle is, “The world began before you and will continue after you, but it will be different because of the decisions you made.” The discussion here begins with the decisions our ancestors have
taken. Whether we like it or not, we must inherit all the decisions they took. So, the Eternal Circle is a state by which someone will possess the traits to make wiser decisions which will make the world a better place for our future generations. This belief will make you realise that we are just the players while the playground remains intact.
The last thing they want to convey in explaining the Eternal Circle is, “Though you will never understand the full influence of your actions, the results of your dedication to humanity are still yours to claim.” This is an interesting discussion as they claim that the people who have felt the Eternal Circle does understand whether or not they have successfully served the purpose of their existence. They explained that the human body might decay with time, but their achievements remain intact for generations to follow. So, that ultimately becomes the benchmark for the others to inspire and give them a new purpose in life.
What are the impacts of Illuminati on our society?
For centuries people have mysterious concepts about Illuminati and their agendas. Some people believe they are plotting for world domination. In contrast, others think they’re doing humanity a favour by silently looking after them. The unfortunate truth is, we will never know unless one day the come out of shadows and confront the world about their motives. However, what we can do is to speculate.
Some believe there is a reason why there is an Eye symbol on the US dollar notes while others consider that the note designer was fond of it and put it there anyway. There are hundreds and thousands of conspiracy theories about the secret society world domination plans. However, that raised a very valid question – are they real? What we can speculate here is they were real once for sure when Adam Weishaupt was in charge.
Meanwhile, the impact of Illuminati being real or fake is a never-ending conversation. What we can comment is they do have an impact on our society. There are allegations from Beyoncé to Walt Disney. However, no hard evidence has ever seen the day of light. So, yes, the impact is on our beliefs. We want to believe they are real in both good and evil ways, whichever we feel convenient.
The Conclusion – Myth vs Truth
Before we answer that, we must first consider the fact that the Illuminati owns a website. Google shows the site information on its search results, and they are actively hiring members. So, yes, they are pretty real. However, they may not be the one we think they are. We believe as we are in 2020, we can see them building a corporal entity to promote a cause by taking aid from a 230-year-old myth. So, we finally conclude that we believe the Illuminati are real but not as evil as people think
