The “Blue&Blacks” are a paramilitary organization headed by Soraya, and who wear her symbol (shown below.)
This version occurs most frequently, accounting for over 70% of the instances:
This second version accounts for most of the remaining:
This final variation appears only once, but seems to have been minimally Photoshopped, unlike the others.
I’ve been musing on the meaning of the Illuminati symbols Stephen found. Their colors certainly suggest a relationship to the expression “blue&black,” found in the hex code of that archival Lincoln photo. However, we have to keep in mind that the symbols were found in encrypted messages left us by someone with a whimsical sense of humor, and who himself said that only half of what he’d given us is true.*
Also, these symbols are obviously Photoshopped, as Stephen notes. They don’t show real glass. So what are they? Perhaps The Laughing One‘s attempt to render something he’s seen or heard about. One can easily believe that a secret society might have a token like this, used for recognition purposes in ceremonies. The shape, reminiscent of a pi symbol with a disc in the middle, is certainly iconic. I’ve found myself scribbling it compulsively.
The original possesses additional other details, especially visible in the least Photoshopped version:
The central disk is metal, while the frame or container is of rough-hewn wood. The Masons use a similar emblem. Notice also the faint cross visible on the back of the disk, reminiscent of standard Rosicrucian symbologism. Finally, the wood “frame” is assymetrical, the left leg thicker than the right, and with its notch set lower down. This suggests two suborders within the whole. Thus, the blue and the black portions of the design may represent the classic Egyptian unequal partners of Night and Water.
In other words, it is not at all certain that this design has anything to do with the third ranked member of a group called the blue&black as referenced in the Lincoln photo’s hex code. (“3rd of the blue&black.”) Moreover, it is certainly not the case that the woman in a black dress with blue trim I glimpsed at Antietam wore this symbol visibly on her; nor did she have it on (despite again wearing blue and black) when Flyss caught caught her on camera in the tunnel.
Nonetheless, we are looking for photographs of people wearing what looks like embroidery, amulets or jewelery in this “pi and disc” shape. We would expect to find this perhaps on crowd photographs taken in the 19th century, when photography was still so new that perhaps the Illuminati did not yet realize the risk. If we can find such a person, then we will have evidence that the “pi and disc” symbol is real. More than that, we will then have a face to look for in the present. –Glenn
* Hopefully, when it comes to Photoshopped symbols, the Laughing One used up his sense of humor with this:
If you click on it to enlarge it, and then rotate it 90 degrees to the right, you’ll see that there’s a cell phone tower in the “glass.”
Kate has a great point. In a previous post, I suggested that we might comb photos for occurrences of the pi and disc symbol. But why am I stuck on photos? What about objects in museums, like clothing or jewelry? It’s certainly possible that an object marked with that secret symbol might have survived physically. Or what about architecture? Could it be built into the form of any building? Into a fresco? Has it been talked about or even drawn in occult literature?
A lot of good directions to go. — Glenn
Glenn, yes there are lots of directions to go. Too many for just us four. I don’t want to start flying around and sneaking into museums with my snuggly hidden camera. Why don’t we ask for help from our readers? Hey guys and gals, the ones who are emailing us or writing comments, have you ever seen this symbol anywhere?
There are fancier versions on this page. Important note: The symbol should be colored blue, or black, or both.
It might be on clothes or jewelry in a museum. Or used in the shape of a building. If this rings a bell, or if you can dig anything up, please, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Help wanted!– Flyss
The Laughing One” is obviously no friend of Antipollus, considering the message he left in that third photo. Just as certainly, “The Servant” works for the blue&blacks, and is accepted as a messenger at those various facilities in the “off the map” area. However, the Bounty Hunter put a GPS tracker in The Servant’s car. Considering the first photo message, the blue&blacks follow the instructions of Antipollus. [Editor's note: We now know that they are actually servants of Soraya, and that Soraya works closely with Antipollus/Alexandros.] Hence, it is reasonable to guess that the Bounty Hunter is a servant of Laughing One, and that there is antagonism between the Laughing One/BH and Antipollus/Blue&black/Servant axis.
As far as a possible migration goes, I’m looking for direct evidence of that. Of course, part of the value of being off the map would have been to allow such a migration to occur in secret. Where would they have gone? — Glenn
You’re talking about the blue&blacks? No, not this time. But what’s with the colorful uniforms? Back when shop was getting closed up, I saw people in orange jumpsuits. I took that just for highway worker style, but now I’m thinking there’s more to it than that.
P.S. Yup. Have more photos. So what is it about the uniforms?
You’re a good arm twister, betcha no one ever told you that before.
About the uniforms: The group of Immortals who call themselves “The Illuminati” are run by a board of 12 members plus an occasional 13th. Most of them run their own large organization of mortals and Hafeems dressed up in special styles. “Sollaya” runs the “Blue&blacks.” You’ve met some of those friendly folks already. Whether it’s for ninja duty or going to the opera, they dress up in mostly black with a little blue, and have the letter “S” emblazoned somewhere, as well as the thingie you’re calling the “Illuminati Symbol.” (I don’t know how they work it for skinny dipping, but it delectates the imagination to try and guess.) Members a group called the “red&whites” look like amped-up military police in bright red uniforms, white berets, white sashes around the necks and white armbands emblazoned with the letter “L.” The “yellow&blacks” wear yellow jackets and trousers with black beaded trim and a letter “B” embroidered in black on the back of their jackets. There are also green&golds, silver&oranges, just plain oranges (but no bananas) and eight other kinds. I know it sounds kinda ridiculous, but when you see them in action they don’t look so silly.
Now that I’ve answered your question so fulsomely, will you stop torturing the nice Oxadrenals and let me see those other photos, please?
As I mentioned in my last post, it seems useful now to spend some time analyzing symbols. This is not my field of expertise; it was Glenn’s. Now, we have no experts on the subject, and my ignorance is worth listening to as much as anyone else’s, I suppose. We welcome outside input!
This thread begins a comprehensive analysis of what we have called the “Illuminati Symbol,” used as an emblem and a calling card by a major group of True Immortals known as the blue&blacks. Here is one version of what it looks like:
Glenn give his analysis of it here. This is an excerpt:
The central disk is metal, while the frame or container is of rough-hewn wood. The Masons use a similar emblem. Notice also the faint cross visible on the back of the disk, reminiscent of standard Rosicrucian symbology. Finally, the wood “frame” is asymmetrical, the left leg thicker than the right, and with its notch set lower down. This suggests two suborders within the whole. Thus, the blue and the black portions of the design may represent the classic Egyptian unequal partners of Night and Water.
However, later, based on comments by several readers, we began to also consider Japanese connections to the symbol. In particular, we had studied connections to the Shinto Torii motif,
as well as to the classic Japanese Hanging Gong:
I would invite you to read this important post for details on those two comparisons.
However, last week another reader, “JD,” took this analysis to an entirely new level. His brilliant and scholarly analysis has now provided us an entirely new level of insight into the meanings of the symbol. What he has to say is so detailed and impressive that we have asked him to write a full guest post in which to lay out his ideas. Thank you, JD. — Strattera
I was reflecting on the Illuminati blue&black symbol, pictured here:
The more I thought about it, the more I was reminded of certain characters in Kanji. (Kanji is one of the three types of Japanese writing.) Certain Kanji characters that look like the symbol also have meanings that relate to it.
For example, the Kanji pictured below means circle or ring:
It is different from the Illuminati symbol only in that the latter has a circle in the center, as this schematic drawing shows:
Perhaps the added circle is intended to emphasize the meaning that the kanji already has.
This second Kanji also resembles an additional horizontal line near the top. It’s meaning is circumference.
It is therefore a little remarkable that the Illuminati symbol also resembles pi, the constant used to compute the circumference of a circle!
This next Kanji is similar to the others, but lacks the middle vertical line. It means same/similar or together.
My final example has an additional horizontal line at the bottom. It means solid, solidify or strength.
So, taken all together, these Kanji seem to bring together the concept of a circle and a sense of solidarity and strength.
And what is a circle? Consider the ouroboros, a symbol used by the alchemists.
Alchemists are remembered today for wanting to turn lead into gold. But in reality their true goal was to achieve Immortality by means of the elixir of life or the philosopher’s stone. And the ouroboros represents the destruction of death by perpetual self sustenance and regeneration.
In other words, the Illuminati symbol carries the meaning of “a strong union of those devoted to immortality.” What better emblem could there be for a powerful secret society of Immortals? — JD
I mentioned in my last post that we are now seeing increasing involvement of the blue&blacks in the vicinity of DIA prior to the arrival of a new “ghost child,” apparently serving as backup for the red&white organization.
I showed a photo of one of the many blue/black helicopters we’ve observed. Now, I wish to post an image of a person.
The photograph below was taken in San Francisco, when Flyss and I were out there investigating the Veteran’s War Memorial.
We actually didn’t identify him as anyone important until more than a month later, when we’d had time to go carefully through images we taken in SF. The photo above enlarges if you click on it, and the symbol is visible if you look closely at his blue coat on the left side, just beneath the button.
Here’s a cropped, blown up view:
(Again, click on the image to enlarge it.) If you still find the symbol difficult to see, here is a Photoshop-enhanced version of the above. The symbol (or the half of it that is visible) is inside the white rectangle.
You can understand why we didn’t notice this immediately.
Obviously, the man pictured here is not a True Immortal, but is instead a Hafeem or an ordinary mortal. But he is clearly a blue&black. And he’s currently present at DIA. He seems to be the only blue&black present, which is why I suggested that he’s functioning in a liason capacity.
Clearly, the Immortal Illuminati value the person who is imminently arriving.
Flyss will pick up the thread now. — Strattera
At the end of “Tied-Up, Helpless, Loving” (the latest installment of Narrative 5), Janice plays bondage games with Blair again, and this time he surrenders to it. And you know what? I think it’s the best thing that ever happened to him.
But the first part of the installment is about a different level of bondage: We meet some members of the blue&black organization, and we find that if any one of them were to tell the world about the immortals they’d die instantly. (Or, at least, they think they would, which is still bondage.)
Also they call hangers-on “lice.” I agree that Menniss is a louse, but to call mortals who are hungry for immortality “lice” is disgusting.
I know, I know, this is all written by Oxadrenals, and shows his bias. But with details like this, it’s hard to see the Immortal Illuminati as the good-deed-doers they say they are. Soraya, are you willing to refute anything here? — Flyss
