The intent of this essay is to analyze the images and symbols used by the group known as “ANONYMOUS” and to understand the implications of the messages encoded within their logos and communications. Anonymous claims to operate without leadership and has been participating in major world-wide political events including the 2009 Iranian Elections and the Occupation of Wall-Street in 2011. Some insiders in “AnonOps,” which provides communications platforms for the group, have issued contrary statements :
A former AnonOps member wrote:
“From the f [-] ing beginning (during the hack at Aiplex which started Operation Payback) there has been an secret club, an aristocracy in AnonOps, deciding how operations will play out in invite-only channels.
It’s obvious, for they control the topic, the hivemind, the guides, every single thing behind the scenes…”
It is important to understand that AnonOps is not Anonymous. AnonOps provides the communication platform for Anonymous. It is also important to understand that, in the scope of national politics, if one controls the media, one controls the country. Control of AnonOps is control of Anonymous.
Because of Anonymous’ radical effect on international affairs we feel it is necessary to determine if there is an ulterior agency operating in the group, either from the inception of the group or through infiltration, and exactly what is the aim of that agency.
[Anonymous is] the first Internet-based superconsciousness.

The term esoteric is used here in the sense of information known only to initiates. The public teachings of the church help people get along with each other (or help them know who to go to war with) but the church also has an esoteric (hidden or occult) side known only to the inner circle of initiated priests. Secret societies often encode esoteric symbols into their public documents in order to communicate information beyond what can be interpreted from the language alone.
The Laurel Leaves – Empire
Laurel leaves are a leaf from a plant that when chewed, release toxins that cause a psychotropic affect. Ancient soothsayers and prophets used it to bring on a trance for mediation and prophecy…In ancient Greece Laurel was sacred to Apollo…
Roman Generals fought for years and conquered lands covering thousands of miles just for the honour of returning to Rome and receiving the laurel wreath as a mark of his great victory.
Throughout history the laurel wreath was a symbol of affiliation with the Roman Empire or a reward for contributing significantly to The Great Work, which is nothing short of the manipulation of all political institutions, media, and churches in order to control the masses and coerce the population into serfdom. Important to the occult aspects of these social experiments is that the participants of the ritual must be fully informed and willing to cooperate with the major players’ plans. The way they inform us is through symbolism, which our educational system trains us to ignore as non-essential to getting a job. Or, in other words, symbol literacy interferes with the process of using people as means to the establishment’s ends. The ruling elite assume that we are their property and must consent to their will. It is particularly pleasing to these players when the people ask to be subjugated.
What the laurel leaves tell us in the language of symbolism is that the organization associates itself with the Solar Cult and with other groups under the same wreath . Notice that the U. N. features the leaves surrounding the northern hemisphere indicating that the program of the U. N. is to place all nations under one rule, a hive-mind, and that the hemisphere is split into 33 divisions. Please also note: The Anonymous globe is presented and divided into two stacks of 18, 6x6x6. The grid pattern reflects the checkerboard floor of the masonic tracing board, which means that every person has his assigned space on the board and move to play in the ruling elite’s game.
The symbolism of the laurel leaves on its own doesn’t hold much evidence, but it was the trigger for this investigation.
The Headless Man – Hive Mind, Truncated Pyramid
The bee and the hive have long been symbols of industry and regeneration, wisdom and obedience, with a place in Egyption, Roman and Christian symbolism. The hive is often seen in Masonic illustrations of the 18th and 19th century and both Clovis and Napoleon adopted the bee as their symbol.
Excerpt – Grand Lodge of British Columbia & Yukon
The bee is important in Masonic symbolism as a view of humanity as one hive-mind with no identity belonging to the human unit at all. The term E Pluribis Unum (out of many, one), which appears on the Great Seal of The United States, is another expression of this psychopathic hive-mind faceless utopia: a future where people won’t need their heads because all the thinking has been done for them. Note that on the example on the right the orientation of the pentacles indicating a Luciferian (Solar cult) alliance and is also the symbol of the Masonic Order of the Eastern Star.
The headless man reflects the truncated pyramid of The Great Seal of the United States. It communicates that The Great Work is always continuing, never completed. Publicly the truncated pyramid is said to be the perfection of man through the development of his intellect. The esoteric (inner, hidden, occult) meaning of this symbol is that it represents the hierarchy of the Masons. The fact that the cap stone is removed from the rest of the structure says that whoever controls the group at the top levels is beyond the group itself and to reach this level from the ranks is impossible. Furthermore, the curious nature of the all-seeing eye seems to indicate that the top levels of hierarchy exist beyond the world of matter or that the controlling faction may be non-physical entities. But for the purpose of this comparison of the article we will accept the public explanation of the icon as a representation of the unfinished man and the capstone as the intellect.
Freemasonry is formed into three basic lodges: the Blue Lodge, the beginning step which is divided into three stages or degrees; the York Rite, composed of ten more degrees; and the Scottish Rite with its total of thirty-two degrees of initiation. The invitation-only thirty-third degree represents the human head atop the thirty-three vertebrae of the back. This is the highest publicly known degree.
Thus a headless man may indicate that the group is ignorantly acting under the control of unknown entities and these entities are communicating to each other, through symbolism, that Anonymous is one of their pet projects.
The Tie – That Binds
Activist anti-establishment groups with no leadership tend not to wear ties. It is interesting that the headless man (puppet) sports this symbol of bondage when the members are convinced they are all acting according their own will. Psychologically this could be interpreted as an attempt by the group to identify with its oppressors to avoid harsh discipline. It means to say, “See, we’re a lot alike. Stop beating me.”
In the case of Anonymous the tie may be a symbol of Fraternity.
“The Masonic fraternity teaches the illusory goal that all who are initiated into its ranks are bonded by the “Mystic Tie” of fellowship. Of course, this is allegory, and yet the necktie does seem to have a special place in Masonic lore and symbology.
It is believed that both the bowtie and the traditional necktie are of Masonic symbolic design. The necktie has two triangles descending, a larger and a smaller. It is tied into a “knot” at the neck, signifying solidarity and unity. The neck itself, as a part of the human anatomy, represents the virtue of sacrifice. In terms of the secret order or secret society, it symbolizes sacrifice of the individual to the common good of the organization.
The necktie is also seen as a bridge to two other triangles — those of the shirt collar. All of the triangles, on the tie and on the shirt collar, have their point, or spear, downward, toward the realm that is the controlling force of Masonry.” –Click here for Source
The necktie is also evocative of the Masonic Cable Tow, the symbol of fraternity and servitude. To the subconscious, the words cable and cabal are nearly identical.
The tie on the headless man of Anonymous is the rope around the neck in the Blue Lodge initiation ceremony, the collar the master tugs, and the rope the initiate is hanged with should he betray the Lodge’s trust.
The Question Mark – Mystes
“After passing successfully through the tortuous passageways, with their trials and dangers, the candidate received the honorary title of Mystes. This meant one who saw through a veil or had a clouded vision. It also signified that the candidate had been brought up to the veil, which would be torn away in the higher degree. The modern word mystic, as referring to a seeker after truth according to the dictates of the heart along the path of faith, is probably derived from this ancient word, for faith is belief in the reality of things unseen or veiled. ”
The question mark implies mystery. Mystes is the root for the word mystery. If the headless man (puppet) is the truncated pyramid then the question mark is the all-seeing eye, the puppeteer. The shape of the question mark is serpentine, a favorite symbol of illumination among initiates.
The question mark has evolved from the latin qvaestio which simply meant question. O is the 15th letter of the alphabet and Q is the 17th. O makes a nice solar symbol and the circle, when there is a point in the middle, represents the earth’s path around the sun.
|Egyptian hieroglyph wj||Phoenician qoph||Etruscan Q||Greek Qoppa|
The Semitic sound value of Qôp (perhaps originally qaw, “cord of wool”, and possibly based on an Egyptian hieroglyph) was /q/
Wool refers back to veil symbology; “to pull the wool over one’s eyes.” The Fabian Society, whose purpose is to advance the principles of democratic socialism and which the reader may remember from the video about bees, utilizes wool in its iconography of the wolf in sheep’s clothing. This means there is something different within these organizations than what can be perceived from without.
The question mark is the unknown serpent puppeteer, the wool over the eyes that conceals the wolf. It is the organizing element controlling the hive-mind, the all-seeing eye, and the completion of the Magnum Opus.
Skull and Bones – Men of Fire
To most people this is the symbol of the pirate, and for Anonymous it represents a free exchange of copyrighted media. Pirates were the lap-dogs of aristocracy. While they traveled the waters they robbed and subjected natives to ready the lands for foreign occupation.Pirate set up universities and fraternal systems to reward psychopaths and prevent people who would oppose the system from achieving any influence.
Pirates (“Men of the Fire”) introduced pubs/bars as a way to keep the locals drunk and therefore passive. They sacrificed many. They stole, killed, raped and pillaged their way to…voila…be among the first to colonize America and discover the so-called “Ivy League” universities. They weren’t dumb, just filled with murderous passion and, of course, they were well financed by outside groups (most notably the Tudors).
One such fraternity is the Skull and Bones, whose members include US presidents and CIA operatives. The image of the skull and crossed leg-bones is a major emblem of Masonry and the Knights Templar and supposedly conveys the transitory nature of mortality.
Solar Cult – Mystery Schools
A staple of the Mystery Schools, which determine significant aspects of the Illuminati, is solar worship. The Sun is at the center of every religious method of control. The Sun is the center of the Christian cross, the halos of the Saints, SOL in Solomon’s temple, RA in Israel.
Religious Imagery – Oldest Trick in the Book
Sub Rosa – Covert Operation
During the wars, many of the inns and hostels in the Yorkshire countryside had roses carved in the ceiling panels and beams of the bar rooms. Warlike matters discussed “under the rose” were treated as being very sensitive and not to be repeated to others under pain of death. Under-the-rose came to be accepted as a security classification and the term “Sub-Rosa” was used extensively to denote matters regarded as what one might call secret up to the early part of the twentieth century. Winston Churchill continued using the terms Sub-Rosa up to the start of World War II.
The symbol is now used extensively within countries of the former British Commonwealth, as well as those remaining in it, to denote a professional intelligence organisation.
More recently, “sub rosa” activities have become a byword for covert operations, usually by security services.
Guy Fawkes – Failed Jesuit Conspirator
The mask was made popular by a motion picture, V for Vendetta. The historical Guy Fawkes was a catholic who got involved with The Gunpowder Plot. After his execution England began to celebrate Guy Fawkes night where they would burn an effigy of the man, but this was just a veiled continuation of the Wicker Man ritual.
Wintour introduced Fawkes to Robert Catesby, who planned to assassinate King James I and restore a Catholic monarch to the throne. The plotters secured the lease to an undercroft beneath the House of Lords, and Fawkes was placed in charge of the gunpowder they stockpiled there. Prompted by the receipt of an anonymous letter, the authorities searched Westminster Palace during the early hours of 5 November, [note that Bill Cooper was murdered Nov. 5th, 2001. -ed.] and found Fawkes guarding the explosives. Over the next few days, he was questioned and tortured, and eventually he broke. Immediately before his execution on 31 January, Fawkes jumped from the scaffold where he was to be hanged and broke his neck, thus avoiding the agony of the drawing and quartering that followed.
It’s hard to imagine why this man is so revered. However, the Jesuits have sharpened their conspiratorial skills in the last few centuries and they can be found, usually with the CIA, at the center of some of the world’s most horrific events.
Peter-Hans Kolvenbach, the General of the International Military Order of the Society of Jesus, commonly known as “the Black Pope”, ordered the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on Tuesday, September 11, 2001, with the advice and consent of his General Staff, composed of five assistants (each representing a hemisphere and under whom are many advisory Provincials), an advisor (resembling the likes of a military commander to warn him of any faults or mistakes), and his confessor (to ease his conscience and absolve him of his many sins).
“I know first hand that the Vatican controls and monitors everything in Israel with the intention of destroying the Jews,” said Bishop Bouffard, adding the true purpose of the Jesuit Order is to orchestrate and control all leaders of the world in order to bring about a major worldwide conflict which will eventually destroy America, the Middle East and Israel.
Keep in mind that the Ku Klux Klan is the only other well-known group that hides behind masks in their public appearances.
What deductions can be inferred from the data related in this study of symbols?
Scenario One – “Coincidence Theory”
Every image used by Anonymous was chosen because ‘it looked cool at the time.’
Scenario Two – “Ambiguity Theory”
Anonymous is aware of the symbolism and is choosing to use it satirically, artistically, or as camouflage. (Don’t think we don’t appreciate the irony of this report appearing under DisInfoBahn’s bar-coded flag of the all seeing eye.)
Scenario Three: “Illuminati Theory”
There is an element at work in Anonymous that is using the group’s participants, who are doing good work, to further the agenda of the Illuminati. Remember that the fabled fruit is from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
For example: If a church sets up a soup kitchen for the purpose of controlling the hungry and the homeless, then ultimately the charity isn’t doing much good. The people that serve the soup are engaging in beneficial activity, but they are being manipulated by nefarious conspirators. Masonry, too, is a tool that can be used for either freedom or enslavement. So it is for Anonymous.
We agree that Anonymous members are right to take down Facebook (the data-mine of the fascists), and that Wall Street should be occupied by anarchists. But what good is it if one covert government agency attacks another? Is that not the definition of a false-flag attack? The result would be a government crackdown on people’s rights to freely communicate, which is a big goal for the Illuminati, a perfect example of the Hegelian Dialectic.
We are willing to speculate that Anonymous could be used to activate Project Monarch subjects or another mind control project. Anonymous members may find themselves blamed for the actions of CIA-funded murderers if life-supporting infrastructure is hacked and disabled.
This group may well be part of “The Second Matrix.” Anonymous fulfills the need to rebel against the System while satisfying the objectives of the System. People are made to feel that they have been initiated into an exclusive cabal and that they are smarter than the average citizen. They are offered a ready-made “online revolution package” while the New World Order quietly collects data on Anonymous members, some of who may dabble in revolution with less conviction than they have for maintaining their virtual farms. This data is used to trap people into working for the Illuminati, or it is saved to ruin people’s lives in the future. It is pure COINTELPRO (Counter Intelligence Program), which historically has been successful in subverting well organized activist groups with strict hierarchies. A group “without leadership,” like Anonymous, should be fairly easy to infiltrate.
The information you share with Anonymous could wind up in anyone’s hands. Be very careful with this group, and especially with AnonOps:
Take everything AnonOps says with a grain of salt. They’re putting out lies and not telling the whole story.
