Eyes Wide Shut: Occult Symbolism

NOTE: The following report contains SPOILERS to Eyes Wide Shut, a 1999 film directed by Stanley Kubrick. If anyone reading these words has NOT seen this film, please go rent a copy of the DVD before reading the rest of this report. Once you have had a chance to see it, then come back and read the rest of what I have written.

If you HAVE already seen Eyes Wide Shut, or have the DVD in your home, you might wish to view it again after reading this report on the occult symbology found in the film.

Here, I have attempted to give an overview of this subject, without going into far too much detail, preferring to stick with the facts, and let them speak for themselves.

There have been certain individuals who have questioned my sources that led to the writing of this investigative report. I can think of no better source than the fact that I have family in the Illuminati, with my cousin's husband controlling a corporation that is located here in the Buffalo, NY USA area, which had seen sales of $1.3 BILLION in the last fiscal year of 2006, and who are also close associates of the Bush Crime Family, and are also associated with the Rothschild family, both well-known families in the global elite structure.

I have seen this from CLOSE-UP and there is nothing fictional about the things that you are about to read in the following report.

At the end of this essay are the many references that aided me in the writing of this report. The reader is invited to resource these references, which will confirm the assertions and conclusions I make below.

Thank you ...

Figure 1 - Publicity for the film Eyes Wide Shut focused exclusively upon the fact that a married couple had been signed as the films' principal leads, while ignoring the REAL STORY, which was the fact that this film exposed the global cabal known as the Illuminati.

Also, this essay does contain some plot SPOILERS, so if the reader has NOT seen the film, please rent a copy, and save this essay for later, after you have viewed the film, and studied its' content.

Here is my January 21, 2007 interview with Henrik Palmgren of RED ICE RADIO -- on the subject of EYES WIDE SHUT:

Bentkowski, Kent Daniel – Eyes Wide Shut interview on RED ICE RADIO (January 21, 2007)

In 1999, an extremely peculiar film was released by legendary film director Stanley Kubrick, which would end up the sixteenth and final film he would direct in his career. In fact, Eyes Wide Shut was Kubrick’s first film in twelve years, since 1987’s Full Metal Jacket, and only his fifth film since 1968, when the magnificent 2001: A Space Odyssey was released. Kubrick died under mysterious circumstances only four days after delivering the final print to Warner Brothers. The film, Eyes Wide Shut, was filled with the symbolism that astute researchers have come to recognize as the calling card of the Illuminati, the synarchist group of global rulers, who believe in rule by birthright, and who rule this planet by the ‘iron fist in a velvet glove’ divide and conquer methodology. Used in the preceding context, synarchy refers to joint rule by those who are under the influence and direction of a fascist government, and the various secret societies to which such politicians belong.

When the film was released, a big deal was made in the Hollywood press about the films’ two stars, Tom Cruise Mapother IV and Nicole Kidman, who were married throughout the three years it took to make the film, but divorced soon after the film was completed and released. Both stars had signed an open-ended contract, in which they made themselves available for however long it took Kubrick to complete the film. In fact, at 15 months, the shoot for Eyes Wide Shut is included in the Guinness Book of World Records, for the ‘longest constant movie shoot’ of any motion picture in the history of Hollywood, which included an unbroken span of 46 weeks. Also, Tom Cruise was filmed 90 times walking through a doorway, which accounts for a second entry in the Guinness Book of World Records for Eyes Wide Shut.

This film makes for a bizarre viewing experience, unless that is, one understands a bit about the symbolism employed by the Illuminati, and EWS is jam-packed with it! Instead of concentrating on plot elements in an attempt to dissect what the author of the original story was trying to get across to his readers, I will concentrate on the symbolism that is found in this film, as there is certainly enough of that to keep both you and I busy for awhile. This symbolism is so important to the understanding of how these people in the Illuminati operate, and since there are questionable aspects to Mr. Kubrick’s sudden tragic death, this a story that needs to be told.

I have shown EWS to various people in my life, and each and every one of them were left scratching their heads, that is, until I explained the symbolism behind the film. Once this symbolism is understood, only then does the film begin to make sense. This film is a fitting metaphor for our times, as we face the reality of those among us who are asleep, and those of us who are awake, as our world has fallen under the influences of very dark and evil forces. This is NOT to say, however, that the Illuminati are only in our collective imagination, as they are a very real group that has been around since before the time of Jesus Christ.

The imaginative cover story was that the Illuminati were a marginal group that was created on May 1, 1776, and disbanded a few years later. This is complete nonsense, as there is plenty of evidence that points to their existence in a much earlier time-frame. Lady Queenborough (aka – Edith Starr Miller), in her 1933 book Occult Theocracy, places the creation of the Illuminati of Spain in the year 1520. The Knights Templar, were incorporated in 1118, and several customs, rituals, and beliefs of the freemasons (Phre-Maison, Sons of the Sun) can be directly traced to Ancient Egypt and Babylon. This places the true beginnings of the Illuminati to 2589 B.C. to 1470 B.C., which is a much earlier time-frame than admitted to by establishment historians.

It is worth noting that Michael Barkun in his decidedly slanted book ‘A Culture of Conspiracy,’ states the usual establishment party-line about the Illuminati:

“The Bavarian Illuminati (formerly, the Order of Illuminists) was established by a Bavarian canon-law professor, Adam Weishaupt, on May 1, 1776. Utilizing organizational models taken from both the Jesuits and the Masons, Weishaupt created a secular organization whose aim was to free the world “from all established religions and political authority.” An elaborate apparatus of secrecy and ritual was designed not only to protect the organization from state penetration but to mold its’ members into an elite capable of achieving Weishaupt’s grandiose objective. By the early 1780’s it had acquired a peak membership of approximately 2,500, most in German-speaking areas. The organization’s aims and its’ clandestine methods (for example, the infiltration of some Masonic lodges) attracted unwelcome government attention, which proved potent enough to bypass even the order’s security measures. By 1787, the Illuminati had been dissolved …”

This is the cover story of the Illuminati; that they once existed, but were quickly disbanded, never to be heard from again. This is what is known in research circles as a ‘limited hang out,’ which is the admission to a small aspect of a crime, such as admitting to incompetence, while denying culpability in the larger aspect of the crime(s). However, the time from 1776 to 1787 was precisely eleven years, a number that is sacred to occult symbolism and magick, and therefore sacred to the Illuminati. However, there are hundreds of thousands of pages of documentation that provide ‘a priori’ evidence of their continued existence beyond the time they claimed to have been disbanded by an irate populus.

Barkun goes on to say that the ‘conspiracy theories’ involving the Illuminati represent thinly-veiled anti-Semitism, simply because some involved were known to have been Jewish. It is hard to take such a claim seriously, because the Illuminati do not believe in the same religious systems as do the general population. Theirs is a religion that has its’ basis in Astrotheology, the worship of the stars, planets, and most especially, the Sun. It does not matter if the reader themselves believe this, because the participants themselves believe in this theological model.

Theirs is a system of solar worship; that is to say, they worship the Sun; the Sun of God.

Eyes Wide Shut – A Curious Phrase:

The phrase Eyes Wide Shut relates to one of the methods the Illuminati employ to hide their crimes and nefarious activities. Eyes Wide Shut describes the behavior they expect from another member who might witness their performance of illegal acts. For instance, if one is called to testify against another, all that needs to be said is the cryptic “Your eyes are wide shut,” and the person hearing this immediately knows what is expected of them. Just as with the freemasonic sign of distress, the EWS phrase is used to insulate one from suffering the penalty of law.

It is but one of many such code phrases used by this group of traitors.

Eyes Wide Shut – The Symbolism Behind The Film:

At a casual glance, EWS appears to be a story about sex and sexual fidelity, monogamy, and sexual fantasy. One of the films more memorable scenes was of Nicole Kidman getting undressed in front of a mirror and a window, her back to the camera. This occurs right at the beginning of the film, and it appears that this film is about sexual infidelity. The films’ sexual themes were reinforced by the song playing on the soundtrack, Chris Isaak performing Baby Did A Bad, Bad Thing. The lyrics talk about sexual infidelity, and it provided fitting music for Ms. Kidman’s striptease. Additionally, because this opening scene involves both a window and a mirror, it might be said that EWS could be described as a peek inside the married life of a couple, which is itself, a hall of mirrors. The mirror is a symbol of the human soul …

Figure 2 - Eyes Wide Shut has its' share of sexual titilation.

Near the beginning of the film, Dr. William Harford and his lovely wife Alice attend a Christmas party held by Victor Ziegler and his wife, Illona. The thing that attracted my attention, however, were the strange decorations that hung upon the walls. One of these decorations appeared at first to be an eight-pointed star with a ring of Saturn around its’ mid-section. This is shown in the screenshot below:

Figure 3 - A rather peculiar Christmas wreath, which is made up of three seperate occult symbols. Can you name them?

As the wreath found in the screenshot above clearly shows, it is what looks at first to be an eight-pointed star. However, upon closer inspection, there are three distinct occult symbols that make up this wreath. As I will show in the diagram below, these three visual components are as follows; the two AS ABOVE and SO BELOW symbols, coupled with a third symbol, which is known as the VESICA PISCES.

Figure 4 - Vesica Pisces and "As Above, So Below"

Upon closer inspection, however, this so-called star contains three elements of occult symbolism. If the reader examines the screenshot above closely, they will see the upward and downward arrowheads representing the as above, so below axiom of occult practitioners, which come from the Emerald Tablets of Hermes. The nature of this statement is that the macrocosmos (the Universe) unites with the microcosmos (man) and represents the influence that the heavens have on man himself. Across the mid-section, is the symbol known as the Vesica Pisces, which is a ideogram representing the vagina of the goddess, the vessel from which all human live emanates.

This is the uniting of the macrocosmos of the Universe, with the microcosmos of man himself. It is a way of saying that what is above us in the heavens is the same as what resides within us in the human body; a scientific principle that has been proven to be true all the way down to the level of quantum physics.

The plot of EWS is based on Arthur Schnitzler’s 1926 novella entitled Traumnovelle (Dream Story), and Stanley Kubrick had wanted to make this story into a film way back in 1968, when he first read the novella, while making his magnum opus 2001: A Space Odyssey. The novella wrestles with issues that are germane to today’s world, such as the issue of being spiritually asleep versus being spiritually awake. So, as the viewer watches the film, the audience is left to wonder which parts of the story are real, and which are dreams. It took Kubrick thirty years to make EWS, and throughout all those many years, there was no competing interest in making a film of Dream Story.

Kubrick, in writing the screenplay, employed many fiction devices to drive home his interpretation of the story. For example, the character name Dr. Bill is an obvious pun that should require no further explanation. It has also been said that the last name of the lead characters of Bill and Alice were taken from comments that the character of the doctor should be like a Harrison Ford type --- thus, Kubrick came up with the last name of Harford. Using Alice for the wife’s name references the character of Alice In Wonderland. Calling the wife Alice subconsciously reminds the audience of Alice’s strange trip ‘Through The Looking-Glass,’ which is exactly where we find Alice in the following screenshot. Notice in the upper right corner of the screen, that there is a painting of a sunflower, which immediately connects with the Illuminati being worshippers of the SUN.

Figure 5 - "Alice" through the eye of the looking-glass.

The underlying theme and allusion to Lewis Carroll’s books Alice In Wonderland (1865), and Through The Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There (1871) (aka – Alice Through The Looking Glass) is highly appropriate, as EWS deals with the issues surrounding reality versus the dream-world, and this metaphor could not be an accident, and had to have been inserted into the storyline by Mr. Kubrick on purpose. This is also a fitting metaphor for our times, as many people seem to be fast asleep as to the evil that is being carried out in their names, and in the names of their children, and our nation. The down the rabbit hole metaphor has been widely used in the contemporary American mass media, such as with perhaps the most infamous instance, which appeared in the 1999 film The Matrix, which also dealt with many of these same issues of reality versus dreams.

In regards to the title of this film, Eyes Wide Shut is said to be a code phrase used by members of high society that translates roughly into --- you have not seen any of my misdeeds, because your eyes are wide shut. This allows such people to run amok above and beyond all laws, and without the threat of ever being caught. We see this happen time and time again in our lives, where if one of us broke the law, we would be dealt with in a prompt manner. However, we see on the news and read in the newspapers and news magazines, where globalist figures are constantly walking away from serious crimes without so much as a slap on the wrist. This immediately calls into question, the corruption of all levels of law enforcement and the judiciary, where justice can indeed be purchased, if the price is right.

A fitting example of this was the January 8, 2006 motorcycle accident involving Arnold Schwarzenegger, who at the time of the accident, did not have a valid California motorcycle license. There is no excuse for this, especially as he has lived in California for many years. However, he did not receive any citation for driving without a license, and was let go without so much as a warning. The USA Today article that is quoted in this essay states that no citations were given in the incident; even though he was riding without a valid motorcycle license. The police officer more than likely asked him for his autograph, and not proof of his having a valid California license to operate a motorcycle.

Thus, we see that there are two sets of laws in this nation; one for the common man, and another set of laws for the ‘chosen ones’ of the globalist Illuminati cabal.

At the opening party at Victor Ziegler’s house, Alice Harford meets up with and dances with a Hungarian man. The name of this character is Sandor Szavost. This character shares his name with the creator of the Church of Satan, Anton Sandor LaVey. This would be an accurate analogy, as members of the global elite are all dedicated to either Lucifer or Satan. Their religion has them believe that both Lucifer and Satan are good, and the God of the Christians has forsaken these so-called fallen angels, and is therefore, an enemy God. This type of thinking is extremely twisted, and represents what some have called a Satanic Reversal --- evil is good, lies are truth, death is life, and darkness is light.

Figure 6 - Alice Harford with Sandor Szavost. Please note that the lighted flowers on the back wall are actually pentagrams.

Here, we have a scene in which a holiday Christmas party is played out, with much more symbolism below the surface. As Sandor Szavost attempts to hit on Alice Harford, we see that there are some attractive lighted flowers that are hung upon the back wall of the ballroom, where the partygoers are drinking and dancing. But, upon closer inspection, one finds that they are not flowers at all, but pentagrams. This is a very unusual holiday design element, and it does not match my own experience at any of the parties I had personally attended over the years, or have decorated my own home for the holidays as an adult.

The pentagram, or five-pointed star, has special meaning for those who practice magick, and other occult disciplines. It relates to the four Classical elements of; earth (Gaia), air (Aer), water (Hydor), and fire (Heile/Heat) --- and a fifth element of spirit (Idea/Hieron; a divine thing). The usual way of displaying a pentagram is with one point up, and two points down. However, those who are Satanists display this symbol upside-down, with two points upward, and one point downward, as can be seen in the women’s freemasonic organization Order of the Eastern Star. If the reader looks closely, the five letter word of F-A-T-A-L can be seen along the edges of the inner pentagonal area, as shown below:

Figure 7 - Order of the Eastern Star Inverted Pentagram Logo.

It is highly unlikely that the typical viewer of this film would know or even understand this to be true. The Order claims that FATAL stands for “fairest among thousands, altogether lovely.” Using one form of numerology, FATAL is the equivalent of the number 13, which is one of the Illuminati’s favorite numbers. For instance, in the tarot, the thirteenth card is the Death card. And, in heraldry and the symbolism of coats of arms, the number 13 is related to “death of the established order, and the beginning of a new age.”

The true reason why the number 13 and specifically the unlucky Friday the 13th is considered negative is because of the events of Friday, October 13, 1307. At dawn on that day, the Templar Knights were to be seized and arrested by the King of France, Phillippe IV. This is a story that is historically correct, but not taught in any school curriculum, because to do so would reveal the importance of the Order. After all, they were subjected to an order by the King of France! In order to draw that much ire, the group had to have been important.

The True History of the Pentagram:

Figure 8 - The Pentagram is just a five-pointed star.

The use of the pentagram goes all the way back to ancient Babylon and Greece, dating back to about 3,500 to 3,000 B.C. During this ancient time, the pentagram was a sign used by royalty, meaning that their power and influence would travel to the four corners of the earth. During medieval times, the pentagram was used as protection against evil entities, where it was worn by people, as well as placed over doors and windows, to protect the homestead. The Celts called it an endless knot, and for them, it was a symbol representing truth.

Painted on the shield of a knight; the pentagram represented the five virtues of generosity, courtesy, chastity, chivalry, and piety. The pentagram is also a Christian symbol representing the five wounds of Christ. In Pythagorean mathematics, the pentalpha, as they called it, was a symbol representing the perfection of man. The pentagram contains the sacred geometrical concept known as the Golden Mean. Perhaps most interestingly, the pentagram, with one point facing up, was a Druidic symbol for summer, and with two points up (or an inverted pentagram), symbolized winter.

The inverted pentagram used as a symbol of non-Christian belief, was introduced and first used by Eliphas Levi, an infamous priest and occultist who lived in the years 1810-1875. Levi, whose real name was Alphonse Louis Constant, was also the source of the Baphomet drawing and the Goat of Mendes glyph.

Figure 9 - Eliphas Levi's Baphomet and Goat of Mendes drawings.

The pentacle, which is a disk representing the element of earth, is also related to this symbolism, and is very important to these people. A pentacle is usually made of wood, and is one of the four major tarot suits. Since all common decks of playing cards are based upon the tarot; the pentacles suit represents and is equal to the suit of diamonds, the swords suit is equal to the suit of spades, the wands suit is equal to the suit of clubs, and the cups suit is equal to the suit of hearts.

At the Christmas party at the beginning of EWS, while his wife Alice is being hit on by Sandor Szavost, Dr. Harford is being led away by two gorgeous model types. He asks where they are leading him, to which they reply:

“To the end of the rainbow.”

Figure 10 - Dr. Harford being led “to the end of the rainbow,” wherever THAT is.

One of the young ladies then asks Dr. Harford:

“Don’t you want to go to where the rainbow ends?”

To which he replies:

“That all depends where that is.”

Here, we have a very subtle reference to mind-control. In the various books and videotaped lectures on mind-control that I possess in my personal reference library, they all refer to The Wizard of Oz as a tool used for triggering mind-control programs in the minds of its’ victims. In the 1996 book by Fritz Springmeier and former Illuminati member Cisco Wheeler The Illuminati Formula Used To Create An Undetectable Total Mind Controlled Slave, there is an entire section on how fiction is used in mind-control.

The books’ discussion includes The Wizard of Oz and Alice Through The Looking Glass, both of which are discussed in this essay. However, Springmeier and Wheeler also discuss Star Trek and Star Wars, which have been used for this purpose as well. Such mind-control was developed and perfected by the German psychologists that had infiltrated the CIA in PROJECT PAPERCLIP, and the techniques learned and developed through the MK-ULTRA program are still in use today, where they are largely implemented through the television, Hollywood feature films, and the popular culture of the nascent 21st century.

Here is a small sampling of the numerous parallels between the occult, and the story of The Wizard of Oz (books and 1939 film):

Dorothy’s three companions; the Scarecrow [brain], Tin Man [heart], and Cowardly Lion [courage], represent the mental, emotional, and physical bodies that H. P. Blavatsky wrote about in her Theosophical poem entitled There Is A Road:

“There is no danger that dauntless courage cannot conquer, [Lion]
There is no trial that spotless purity cannot pass through, [Tin Man]
There is no difficulty that strong intellect cannot surmount.” [Scarecrow]

--- H. P. Blavatsky; Collected Writings (vol. 13, pg. 219)

One other interesting bit of EWS trivia, is that the small daughter of Dr. Bill and Alice Harford, is named Helena, after Helena Petrovna Blavatsky.

For those unfamiliar with CIA mind-control programming, it is done with children beginning at a very early age, from as early as four years old. Because these children are so young, children’s stories and fairy tales are used. Among those used are The Wizard of Oz, Alice Through The Looking Glass, Grimm’s Fairy Tales, and a 1950 Harper & Row book entitled The Tall Book of Make Believe, which was written by Jane Werner and illustrated by Garth Williams. The basis of mind-control programming is to instill loyalty to the Illuminati, fear if they should ever think about leaving (as some have done), and perhaps most importantly, that they obey the orders they are given, whenever or by whom they happen to be given.

The methodology used by the high-level programmers of the Illuminati is based in trauma. This is done for two reasons; it creates a disassociative state in the victim, and this is so the programming and the codes, keys, and triggers can be more easily implemented. The second reason is because trauma creates a psychotic break, which results in multiple-personality disorder, as well as the highest level of suggestibility in the mind of the victim. Remember that I am talking about children under the age of six, when I talk about trauma-based mind-control. However, this mind-control is an ongoing process that occurs throughout the entire life of the mind-control victim.

Figure 12 - The Wizard of Oz book cover and DVD cover.

Because I am talking about The Wizard of Oz here in this essay, allow me to briefly focus on how this story and its’ film are used for mind-control programming. Both positive and negative reinforcement are used, which furthers the foundational programming. Children are first traumatized through a number of repugnant actions --- such as physical, emotional, mental, or sexual abuse. The child is taught that things are NEVER what they seem, and the behavior of the programmer (which is often the child’s parent) is deliberately mixed up, so that from one moment to the next, the child never knows what to expect; a hug, a sexual assault, or a beating. To further this programming, an individual who is known to be gregarious and charismatic, will turn into a frightfully mean person when they are home behind closed doors.

The child is taught that loyalty to the Illuminati supercedes any other responsibility, and when they perform their tasks correctly, they are lavished with praise and positive reinforcement. The child is told they are special and are one of the chosen ones, and they are told that the new world order is to help save humanity from its’ own ignorance and stupidity. These of course, are lies. They learn the truth when they are much older, but by then, the programming is laid in so thick that they feel powerless to do anything but obey the orders as they are received.

Here are some of the references to mind-control in The Wizard of Oz:

In The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy’s home state of Kansas is shown in black and white, dull colors, which represent something undesirable to the subconscious mind of the children. Who wants to be a part of something dull and boring? Reality is downplayed, and make-believe is encouraged, especially with today’s realistic videogames, a few of which have been dedicated to new world order and Illuminati themes. Oz appears to be exciting, with its’ unique (for 1939) presentation in color. It is a place of adventure, and the Yellow Brick Road itself is a not-too-subtle reference to GOLD and wealth and success.

Mind-control slaves programmed under The Wizard of Oz system, are told to “always follow the yellow brick road.” The yellow brick road symbol is associated with compliance, travel, and a goal to be achieved. It is adapted to fit in with the differing circumstances of the individual. For example, if a person were in a career that required them to drive a NASCAR race car, the yellow brick road might be the track upon which the individual races. But, if that same person were a politician, the yellow brick road might be the overall agenda that needs to be gradually put into place. No matter how bleak or difficult things become, they are told to remain on that yellow brick road!

The seven-colored rainbow is used as a hypnotic device. Douglas Monroe, in his book of Druidic magic, describes the rainbow in the following manner: “The rainbow is a true sign of magic, it exists in both worlds at once!” And, what two worlds was Monroe talking about? He was talking about the physical and spiritual realms, the command of both are needed to carry out successful magical acts. Children are told that they do not have a brain, just like the Scarecrow. Perhaps they are told that they do not have a heart like the Tin Man. Some children are found to have no courage, so they are involved with the Cowardly Lion as a central theme of their programming. Once they are told that they lack something, the focus of their life becomes finding and integrating what was found to be lacking or lost.

The 1939 film The Wizard of Oz contains some interesting connections to mind-control.

Elvira Gulch is said to own half of the land in the entire county where Dorothy Gale lives with her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry, and her pet dog, Toto. When Elvira Gulch shows up as the Wicked Witch later on in the film, this parallels the real-life activities of those in the Illuminati, where they quite literally lead double lives. In my own experience of personally knowing people in the Illuminati, I have found that a person’s cover-story is often quite different from the real story of their behind-the-scenes life and activities. For example, a businessman in the Illuminati may be lauded by the media as a genius in business, when in reality, what created the success were the closed-ended Illuminati connections; the no-bid contracts, the preferential treatment, and the ability to successfully get the account, even while others outside of the group never get past the secretary.

Professor Marvel uses a crystal ball that he states was used by the Priests of Isis. Isis and her brother-husband Osiris, are the two primary deities of ancient Egyptian religion and folklore. Dorothy, Tin Man, Cowardly Lion, and the Scarecrow must prove themselves worthy to receive the Wizard’s benevolence. The occult world is full of rituals where the candidate must prove themselves to be worthy of a special knowledge called illumination.

There are several scenes in the movie The Wizard of Oz that show transference of power through a witch giving her slippers to someone. The film also shows that Dorothy needs to have on her special ruby slippers in order to travel over the rainbow to get to Oz. When a older Illuminati witch is ready to die, a special ceremony is carried out, in which the elderly witch passes on her power to a suitable replacement. This ceremony also involves the passing on of the witch’s slippers to the up-and-coming witch who was selected as her replacement.

The costume shop that Dr. Bill Harford visits is called Rainbow Fashions. The shop below is called Under The Rainbow. This is an allusion to the power behind the power, as the rainbow is a symbol of transcendence and ascension. It was while visiting this costume shop, Rainbow Fashions, that Dr. Bill Harford empowers himself, which ultimately leads to his getting inside the ritual that was taking place behind the cloak of mystery. While the viewer never gets to see inside of the shop Under The Rainbow, it is an important symbol nonetheless.

It should also interest the viewer of this film that the building directly adjacent to the Rainbow Costume shop is a Freemason Lodge, which can only be seen with the DVD player's ZOOM feature. Stanley Kubrick was careful to bring the Masonic Lodge into the preceedings, which may be yet another reason WHY he was murdered EXACTLY 666 days before January 1, 2001 --- the first day of the year in which his most famous film takes place.

Figure 13 - The Rainbow Fashions and Under The Rainbow shops.

The MK-ULTRA mind-control slaves have reported extensive programming and conditioning based upon The Wizard of Oz, and rainbows obviously play a huge role in that story. Rainbows play a huge role in the mind-control conditioning that is based upon that story and that symbolism. L. Frank Baum (1856-1919) was himself an occultist and a member of the Theosophical Society, and this is why there is so much occult content in the fourteen Oz books, which were published between 1900 and 1920. Baum claimed that a spirit had given him the ‘magic key’ to write the first Wizard of Oz book, which was the one made into the infamous 1939 movie starring Judy Garland.

“It was pure inspiration,” Baum wrote in The Annotated Wizard of Oz. “It came to me right out of the blue. I think that sometimes the Great Author has a message to get across, and He has to use the instrument at hand. I happened to be that medium, and I believe the magic key was given to me to open the doors of sympathy and understanding, joy, peace, and happiness.”

Incidentally, in the 2002 film “Dragonfly” starring Kevin Costner, yet another rainbow plays a prominent role. After Emily, the wife of Dr. Joseph Darrow, dies in a violent bus crash, a young boy tells him that his wife wants to meet with him inside the rainbow. The dragonfly theme was artistically rendered as the cover art for the progressive rock group YES, for their House of YES CD and DVD titles, a group that writes and performs music related to spiritual ascension. The dragonfly is also featured in Ted Andrews’ wonderful book Animal Speak, where it is said to represent the ascension of the soul and deliverance of the soul to the light.

The Unexplained Masked Ball:

Of the films’ two and one-half hours, the most curious aspect are the thirty-five minutes that take place during Dr. Bill Harford’s trip to the masked ball, which is yet another pun! On the DVD, this section begins with (ch. # 13 – Sonata Café 0:52:34), which is the scene at the Sonata Café, where Bill’s old friend Nick Nightingale reveals that he plays keyboards at various locations while blindfolded. Of course, this piques Harford’s curiosity. He just has to sneak in, and with Nick’s password of Fidelio, which is the name of Beethoven’s only opera, he will be able to do exactly that.

When the symbolism behind the Nightingale is examined, the reader finds an allusion to the story itself, which had to have been inserted on purpose. There is a bird called Nightingale, which has a beautiful song. The bird sings, and one of the definitions of the word ‘sing’ involves informing the police, or acting as an informant. This is precisely what Nick does with his old medical school chum, Dr. Bill Harford. He informs him that he plays the keyboards while blindfolded, that the location is always changing, it is always in the middle of the night, and he only knows the location and password a little while before he is to play.

Additionally, the Nightingale symbolizes the connection between life and death, which is what the film turns into after Harford’s entry into the Illuminati sex-magick ritual. Harford falls under great danger, as he was discovered only minutes after he gained entrance. The song of the Nightingale was also thought to announce a death, or was the cry of help of a soul in trapped in purgatory. Nick places the two of them in great danger by his revelations of mysterious blindfolded performances in the homes of the deadly powerful global elite.

Figure 14 - Nick Nightingale plays keyboards while blindfolded.

The use of Fidelio as the password to get into the Masked Ball is an example of a literary device known as foreshadowing, a term referring to clues that provide a glimpse of what is to come. On the Wikipedia website, Fidelio is said to be a story of a woman who rescues her husband from death in a political prison. The Masked Ball is exactly that, as Harford comes to be threatened by the man in the red cloak; it should also be noted that the high-priest who carries out Illuminati black magic rituals also wears red, a color symbolizing the bloodline that is of paramount importance. Just as his situation appears rather grim, Dr. Harford is suddenly saved by a mysterious woman, who sacrifices herself at the last moment. Because the Illuminati are extremely political, this was a rescue from a political prison of Dr. Harford’s own making.

This Masked Ball segment of this film depicts an Illuminati sex-magick ritual orgy, which actually occurs behind closed doors in some of the most exclusive housing in the entire world. Those who practice ritualized sex magick draw upon the combined power of the sex act and the partners themselves. Magick spells and incantations are launched during orgasm, when the sexual power of the couple is at its’ peak. However, shown in the context of EWS itself, the men of the global elite use sex as a manner of claiming power over their sex partner, who is looked upon and treated as a sex slave of sorts. I direct the reader to the books written by Cathy O’Brien and Susan Ford (writing as Brice Taylor), whose books appear in the sources section immediately following this report.

As Dr. Bill Harford arrives at the masked ritual, he gives the password, Fidelio, which as we are told in the film, is the name of Beethoven’s only opera. He has to pass through seven people to enter what the DVD calls THE ABYSS. This is certainly interesting, as it may be symbolic of the Seven Gates of Hell --- or the seven rings that surround Dante’s Inferno --- which are themselves, symbolic of the Seven Gates of Hell. There were two men outside of the house, one man at the front door, one man in the vestibule (where Harford gives the password a second time), another man takes his cloak, one man stands at the inner door, with the seventh masked man standing directly outside of the ritual itself.

Figure 15 - The first glimpse of the Illuminati ritual.

The music that is being played during this scene is extremely creepy and was written and performed by Jocelyn Pook, and the selection was originally titled “Backwards Priests.” For this film, it was renamed “Masked Ball.” This selection can be found on the film soundtrack, as well as her album titled “Deluge” (or alternately “Flood”). It is positively haunting, and creates some unforgettable tension. The chanting is in reverse, and is of a Romanian priest giving a mass in Latin. The first voice is deep and bellicose, and is obviously the voice of a high-priest, as it invokes a seriousness that was rather disturbing upon first hearing this combined with the sights in the film itself.

The following quotes are actually Latin translated first into Italian, and then, into English.

A rough translation of the chanting is as follows:

“The High Priest bids Gloria to all apprentices . . .”

As the ritual progresses, a second reversed voice can be heard. The second voice is higher-pitched than the first, and is vibrated with a hurried cadence. This is after the hooded participants of the ritual are revealed to be beautiful young women. The rough translation of this second voice is as follows:

“. . . for our naked shepherdesses, for the compassion,
the life, the peace, the good health, the absolution,
and the control of the departed ones, and for the
forgiveness of the sins of the slaves of God, the
siblings of its Saint church . . .”

Much speculation among those who have seen this film surrounds the manner in which Dr. Harford is almost immediately discovered to an imposter. However, using a little common sense, it becomes very clear how this would be discovered. The Illuminati are a trans-generational group of insiders. If these participants performed regular rituals behind masks, they would be very likely to repeatedly use the same mask. The act of recognizing a mask that was unfamiliar would occur almost immediately, as Dr. Harford was asked to “kindly remove” his mask. If it was a new mask covering a recognizable face, the ritual would proceed, and the newly purchased mask would be noted by everyone in attendance.

Figure 16 - Dr. Harford is asked to kindly remove his mask. Incidentally, in the above screenshot, there is an Egyptian Uraeus Serpent with the two heads on the back of the chair. This relates to the Sun, and the two heads -- which face and East and West, relate to the rising and setting of the Sun.

However, because Dr. Harford did not belong, he was expelled, following a symbolic intervention by one of the young ladies who attempted to warn him of the deep trouble in which he suddenly found himself. The high-priest commands Harford to remove his mask. As Harford is told after the young woman’s symbolic intervention, there is nothing he or anyone else could do that would change her fate. The mask itself has a heavy symbolic meaning, which author Michael Tsarion describes in the following way:

“The mask is how the devilish, evil people disguise who they are.” Michael Tsarion said on the February 15, 2006 broadcast of the Jeff Rense talk-radio show. He further stated that the planet was going through something called The Mayan Age of Revealing, which is a thirteen year period from December 21, 1999 to December 21, 2012. This, he said, was a time for the bringing down of the mask, which would reveal these people for what they really are, and the Children of Light, Truth, and Justice would defeat these people, stamping them out of existence, like a virus.

Figure 17 - “When a promise has been made here, there is no turning back.”

As the high-priest explains: “When a promise has been made here, there is no turning back.”

This section ends with Dr. Harford sneaking back into his Central Park West apartment, which is (ch. # 23 – Home 1:26:20). After being exposed, Dr. Harford sneaks back home, and as he is entering his apartment, an all-seeing “Eye of Horus” can be seen briefly flickering across his back, as though he were a marked man. The all-seeing eye is the long established symbol of the illumined ones --- more commonly known as the Illuminati. At first, it looks like a shadow, but this is an impossible explanation. This is because the shadow could not fall upon his back, which was turned away from the lamp itself, which was in the hall in front of him. Simply put, shadows always fall away from the light source, but never toward it. (Ch # 23 – 1:26:41 freeze-frame)

Perhaps the oddest thing about this sequence, is the fact that it is never addressed either in the film itself, DVD packaging, plot synopsis, advertising, and the DVD interview segments with Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, the two stars of the film who themselves were married during the three years it took to shoot this film in England, and who coincidentally divorced immediately after their own participation in the film.

Figure 18 - Dr. Harford faces his savior, who will give her life for his safety.

The culmination of this tense sequence occurs near the end of the film, when Harford is called back to speak with Victor Ziegler. This begins on (ch. # 33 – 2:05:09) and concludes at (ch. # 36 – 2:18:17). Interestingly, this scene is precisely 13 minutes. As it turns out, Victor Ziegler was at the ritual.

Figure 19 - Victor Ziegler announces that he was at the ritual, and saw everything.

Also, Alice wakes up to find Bill’s mask on the pillow next to her. This begs the question as to whether or not Alice was at the Masked Ball, or was her finding the mask just a discovery of her husband’s amorous secret life? Then, there is the matter of a ‘dream’ that Alice describes, where she was made love to by a nearly endless line of men whom she did not know. As she is describing this, it matches extremely closely to what her own husband witnessed at the ritual he snuck into.

Figure 20 - Alice in bed with the mask; was it only a dream, or did it really happen?

This emphasizes something that former MK-ULTRA Presidential Model mind-control slave Cathy O’Brien often speaks about in her 1995 book Trance Formation of America:

“There is nowhere to run, and nowhere to hide.”

However, all this intrigue is completely ignored by everyone associated with this film, preferring instead, to emphasize the sexual aspects of this DREAM STORY. This is a shame, as I would have been very keen to hear what Mr. Kubrick would have said about this film, such as the reason why he made the choice to concentrate on the Illuminati aspect of the story, while largely downplaying the sexual exploits of the films’ central characters, Bill and Alice Harford.

The Untimely Death of Stanley Kubrick:

When one hears the name of legendary film director Stanley Kubrick, the first thing that comes to mind is the exquisite 2001: A Space Odyssey. This was the first major Hollywood film that showed the exploration of space in a believable manner. Because of this, along with a great story written by Arthur C. Clarke, 2001 was a smash hit throughout the world.

Only four days after Kubrick turned in the final cut of EWS to Warner Brothers, he was ‘found’ dead by his wife. He had no heart trouble, and wasn’t ill before his sudden and shockingly unexpected death. Perhaps a clue into the nature of his death is the fact that it occurred precisely 666 days prior to the first day of the year in which his most famous film occurs --- 2001: A Space Odyssey. Everyone was shocked by his death, and this group includes all who were working on EWS, and his family, as well. Even though the official report was that he died of a heart attack, his wife did not accept the explanation. Stanley had not been ill, or even in seemingly bad health.

However, according to William Cooper, author of the book BEHOLD A PALE HORSE, and the forty-two hour series on the Illuminati and their Babylon mystery religion entitled MYSTERY BABYLON, stated during the second broadcast of MYSTERY BABYLON, that Stanley Kubrick was himself an initiate of the Mysteries. This helps to explain the films' unexplicable aspects, such as the unexplained MASKED BALL portion of the film, and his shockingly unexpected death, only four days after he turned in the final print of EWS to Warner Brothers.

Not only does this film contain some inexplicable symbology, but in making this film, director Stanley Kubrick may have made the fatal mistake of showing too much truth concerning a group of self-appointed global elite world rulers known as the Illuminati. While it may truly be coincidence, but, there were many peculiar circumstances surrounding the death of Stanley Kubrick --- who was known to be in perfect health just one day prior.

When one considers the very real possibility that these 666 days represent Mr. Kubrick being punished for the crime of revealing too much during the two and a half hours of Eyes Wide Shut --- then his sudden death becomes immediately understandable. There are ways of inducing heart attacks while leaving behind no trace of the crime itself. In the Sources section at the end of this essay, the reader can find a link to my own August 16, 2005 investigative piece How The Globalists Create Heart Attacks, which describes some of the many ways in which someone could be murdered by what looks to be a normal heart attack, without being detected.

Stanley Kubrick – By The Numbers:

  • Date of Birth = 07/26/1928

  • EWS Final Print Delivery = 03/03/1999

  • Date of Death = 03/07/1999

  • 2001: A Space Odyssey = 01/01/2001

  • Number of days between Kubrick’s death and the year of 2001 = 666!

At the film’s climax, Dr. Bill Harford reads in the New York Post about how a former Miss America contestant had suffered a drug overdose early in the predawn hours of the very same night he snuck into the ritual. The headline on the front page of that newspaper reads LUCKY TO BE ALIVE.

Also, in the newly constructed English suburban town of Milton Keynes, which is nestled in the Chiltern Hills west of London, there are a pair of statues that feature one of the masks from this film. An identical pair of these statues are down the road a bit from the Waitrose Supermarket in Milton Keynes, Buckinghamshire, England, UK. The photo below shows this statue juxtaposed with the same mask as seen in the film. Incidentally, the largest landowners in Buckinghamshire, where these EWS statues can be found, are the Rothschild family, one of the 13 Illuminati bloodlines that appear to control the direction of the entire planet.

Figure 21 - EWS Statues and same mask from film (statue photos by: Ellis C. Taylor and Mike Dodd)

Caped figures wearing one of the masks from EWS were seen in an IBM television commercial shown on television during 2003, where a distressed business executive is relentlessly chased by “tough customers.” These masks are shown immediately below, where the IBM commercial is shown in the center, flanked by two shots of this same mask from the film, which of course, is all one big coincidence, I am sure. The name of this advertising campaign was entitled Dreams, which ties in to the themes of EWS. The name of this specific advertisement was entitled Mob, which carries its’ own connotations.

Figure 22 - 2003 IBM TV advertisement surrounded by EWS masks.

In a 2003 television commercial for IBM, an agitated corporate CEO is shown recalling a recent dream with his therapist:

CEO – “I’m being chased.”

Therapist – “By whom?”

CEO – “I don’t know – they’re, they’re, tough customers.”

Therapist – “Customers? What do they want?”

CEO - “Everything. Now.”

This is saying that once someone gets into business with this mob of tough customers, they want everything, and they want it right now. There is no refusing these people, and those who do, suffer perils greater than the bad dreams this corporate CEO is sharing with his therapist. I know about this personally, as I have dealt with some of the tough customers of my local area. These people do not screw around, and are quick to drop a formerly trusted client, once they have decided that they are finished getting whatever it is they want.

The day after the ritual, Dr. Harford is foolish enough to go back to the residence, where he is immediately picked up on the security camera. A moment later, a man drives up to the gate, gets out, and hands the doctor an envelope with his name on the front. Inside, was the following message, clearly a warning to stay out of their business.

Figure 23 - Dr. Harford's second warning.

These people with whom Dr. Harford gets mixed-up are at their core, cowards who hide behind their money, security forces, and threats. They FEAR the truth, and all they know are lies, obfuscation, and semantical gymnastics. In the revelatory scene with Victor Ziegler, Harford is told that he was caught because of three reasons; first, he took a taxi to the ritual, while everyone else arrived in limousines. Secondly, a receipt from the costume shop with his name and address upon it was found in his coat pocket. Third, he wore an unfamiliar mask, which immediately identified him as an imposter. Because the Illuminati are such a closed group, it would be rather quickly that someone like Harford would be quickly identified as not belonging.

The Intervention and the Death:

Just as the man in the red cloak is ready to mete out the appropriate punishment to Dr. Harford, a rather dramatic plea is heard echoing throughout the halls. On a balcony, a masked and barely clothed woman cries out for Dr. Harford’s salvation. Essentially, she offers to take his place, to receive whatever punishment he would have gotten. The red cloaked man asks her if she understands what she is asking, to which she replies that she does understand and is ready to accept whatever punishment that would have been given to Dr. Harford.

During the final revelatory scene between Ziegler and Harford, Ziegler is given a newspaper clipping of a story involving the death of a former Miss New York contestant, by a drug overdose. Amanda Curran, 30, was found dead after she was unable to be reached by telephone. Ziegler’s response was a dispassionate claim that “people die all the time,” and downplayed any concern that what really took place was a homicide, and not an accidental drug overdose, as reported by the newspaper.

Figure 24 - Here, Dr. Harford displays an Illuminati hand-neck sign.

Figure 24a - Here, former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan makes the same hand sign on the September 18, 2007 edition of THE DAILY SHOW.

Also curious about this film is the highly unusual and physically awkward contortion, as shown immediately above. This is representative of one type of Illuminati symbolism, which is shown and discussed in chapter fifteen of Texe Marrs’ Codex Magica, pgs. 295-305, an authoritative book on Illuminati signs and symbols.

As Marrs himself points out on pgs. 296-297 of Codex Magica:

“A number of dictionaries of symbols state that the hand placed on the neck signifies sacrifice. Now, sacrifice can have at least two meanings --- one, the continuing threat of the penalties to be applied to punish those adepts and initiates who so impertinently reveal the secrets of the Order; and two, the willingness of the individual performing the sign to sacrifice himself for the good of the Order, or for the good of the cause or Great Work of the Illuminati.”

Take a good close look at the screenshot of Dr. Harford holding the palm of his hand to his cheek. Has the reader ever seen anything like this in another film? How about seeing this in one of the many films that Tom Cruise Mapother IV himself has done? How about in any other film, by any other actor? I have never seen this gesture or hand sign in any of Mr. Mapother’s other films, and I have to assume that it was inserted into this film on purpose, and this is because the context is correct. If this hand over the throat hand sign refers to a sacrifice, this is appropriate, because that is what Ziegler and Harford are discussing, the young woman’s life having been sacrificed for Harford’s safety. There is a second significance to this sacrifice, as Dr. Harford has sacrificed his innocence for the forbidden knowledge that lies beyond the locked doors of Illuminati and blindfolded eyes of Nick Nightingale.

As the dream story draws to a close, the viewer is left wondering just exactly has gone on in this film. Fantasy has been juxtaposed with reality, and the blurring between both worlds remains uncertain. The viewer is left wondering about the significance of the mask laying upon the pillow, as Alice lay sleeping beside it. Likewise, the viewer is left wondering if the events truly happened, or if they were imagined.

As filmmaker Richard Linklater, who hails from Austin, Texas USA, asked in his 2001 film Waking Life:

“Are we sleep-walking through our waking state, or wake-walking through our dreams?”

This appears to be a valid question to ask, especially given the Illuminati’s propensity to inject heavy doses of fantasy to keep as many people asleep as they can, sleeping as they do, with their eyes wide shut.

  2. Anonymous4:19 PM

    Here is my essay on Eyes wide shut

    Truth has not a chance to prevail in this era of EYES WIDE SHUT.
    The time predicted in the occult classic Eyes Wide shut by the late director Stanley Kubrick.

    Many people speculate that Mr. Kubrick’s untimely death after he made Eyes wide shut had to do with the content of the movie. His displaying the occult sexual magick rituals of the elite rulers of the world may have caused these occultist to have done in Mr. Kubrick. This just may be the case, but not for the reasons mentioned above: that being the elite having a serious problem with Kubrick revealing their sex secrets, but in fact Kubrick revealing something much more subtle, pernicious and awful.

    Indeed what Kubrick was telling us was much more subtle and underneath the theme of the movie, but interestingly the very title of the movie gives us a huge hint of what he was revealing. To understand this point in context though one has to look at the history and themes of Kubrick’s past movies and their relationship to the popular culture.

    Starting with the 50’s classic “The Killing” a gritty crime drama that captured the environment of the criminal element in modern society as Kubrick was so adept at in his realistic portrayals of life. This theme of crime continued in Kubrick’s repertoire in another classic “A clockwork Orange” done in 1971 16 years after “The Killing”.
    Both drama’s as noted emphasized crime in modern society, the killing a tale about robbery and the criminal underground and clockwork a more updated tale of not only crime but the kinds of crimes that are relative to the Charles Manson and spree killers of our time.

    The themes in these two movies seem to be portents by Kubrick of a coming era were such crime and types of crimes as in Clockwork will be rampant and pervade American society. Certainly such a criminal element was around at the time that Kubrick made these movies, but the degree certainly was not as extensive as it would become.

    Similarly as in two other Kubrick classic’s “Dr Strangelove 1964 and “2001Space Odyssey” 1968 we have portents of the Star Wars, Star Trek syndrome in the case of 2001, and the macho “nuke em” mentality of a certain type of American patriot in Dr Strangelove.

    Indeed notwithstanding the genius in Mr. Kubrick, we may have here a pattern of not only unique talent and insight, but if we look closely some kind of pre-knowledge or prescience of Kubrick that indicates he may have been tapped into some occult thought stream, if not being a secret adept himself dedicated to revealing to us through the popular entertainment vehicle of movies the plans that the elite have for molding society to their desires.

    Now we return to the subject of “Eyes wide shut” which may have been Kubrick’s swan song or his final clarion call to us about the plans of these supposed secret elites.
    Indeed we know that openly the movie frames itself around the tale of a young yuppie middles class Doctor stumbling across the sexual magick rituals of the powerful elite, and

    their reaction to that in the extent they will go to in covering up their tracks, which includes murder.
    Also as some commentator’s have mentioned, there is a powerful theme of sex slavery brainwashing (ala’ MK Ultra) in the drama as well.

    All of the above may certainly have some basis in reality. But the contention here is that if that be the case, such things are peripheral to the real dangerous message that underlies the movie. And which may have caused Kubrick his life. Kubrick in this regard did a masterful job of diverting attention from the major hidden message of the movie with all the common man vs. the mysterious elite and the sex magick theme, but do we really think they would kill him over that? That’s nothing new, secret or particularly ominous considering what we know of the elite today and what they know we know of them.
    So if we dismiss the obvious but yet still see something very ominous in the movie then I contend that Mr. Kubrick very brazenly put his message not only underneath the theme of the movie but had the audacity to put the essence of the message in the title itself, EYES WIDE SHUT.

    As a man who obviously in his movie career predicted and foretold of the coming sub cultural thinking patterns of American society went too far with Eyes Wide Shut.
    In portending rampant crime, the space age, the American patriot, those were more or less innocent or expected cultural phenomena, but in Kubrick predicting or revealing the era of Eyes Wide Shut, now that may have been going too far. For what Kubrick did was to tell us that in a few years the mass media in conjunction with the elite would begin the final strangulation or usurpation of the minds and hearts of this civilization by bringing in a period that can only be described as a new dark ages. Indeed perhaps beginning in the horrors of 911, where practically the entire world would be blinded by the obvious satanic fraud wrought on the populace with the ridiculous spectacle of buildings disintegrating before everybodies eyes and being given no reasonable explanation why this happened but yet everyone through ignorance, media hype and brainwashing are told what to believe and what happened, and lo and behold, most have been hoodwinked.

    The era of EYES WIDE SHUT is simply put a time when adult human beings will be told and shown blatant lies and absurdities that in ordinary times a child could see through.

    The Iraq war, Katrina, and many other instances that try the credulity of intelligent people.

    Eyes Wide Shut

    We see, but don’t see
    The point:

    To see what they can get away with!

    When I saw it, I thought it to be a very lame in-your-face sexual history.

    Now seeing it through your lens, I can underestand that his genious would not be wasted as I thought.

    But I read somewhere that he did commit a self-sacrifice according to masonery rituals, and that is why he died on the 7th.

    Which is a very significant number to them since it means spirituality.

  4. Anonymous6:37 AM

    My Interpretation on all of this: Let me first say that I completely agree that Eyes Wide Shut isn't REALLY about sexual exploration and the relationship of a couple who are having marriage issues. These are themes that have been explored way before EWS came out, and many critics jumped on the movie for not being original like most Kubrick films and beating a dead horse that had already been cinematically explored. But I think Kubrick was more intelligent than that. However, many conspiracy theorists jump on the fact that EWS is really all about cults (certainly ironic considering Cruise and Kidman's scientology ties) and how evil they are, and especially about how the Illumanti control the world and we are blind to it, with some even saying that EWS is Kubrick's warning of a new dark age to come. And blah blah blah.

    Me, I see the film as actually a deep complex study on our fascination with cults and conspiracy theories as a whole, and of the unknown. It is inherint that there is something creepy about what we don't understand. The mysterious is never boring. I think a lot of people attribute stuff (say, 9/11 for example) to crazy theories because a) it makes everything seem more interesting and b) because it means responsibility is never in your own hands. This works with EWS very well I think. Firstly, Cruise and Kidman are portrayed as the 'vanilla American' couple getting bored with life and each other. Again, many conspiracy theories are made by people bored with their own lives that want excitement in believing that there is a BIGGER PICTURE out there and that they are one of the lucky few to really see what is happening, while everyone else is "sheep." This also fits in with Cruise's intent interest to go to the party he is told about that he knows is VERY exclusive. It is exciting and different, and it is something most people don't know about.

    But then, secondly, is the fact that Cruise doesn't have to really take responsibility for his actions. He had drawn away from his wife, and was willing to cheat on her, but then the "cult" threatens his life and suddenly the issue of infidelity is MINOR when compared to the grand tragedy and mystery that he came upon. This can very much be symbolic of why such organizations have their powerfullness and mystery trumped up, and why conspiracy theories are so popular. It takes away the importance of our own actions in the big scheme of things. They can be the invisible scape goat we point to when we make our own mistakes. It's a way to gauge your own sins against far greater sins and to find absolution in this fact.

    Even the title, EYES WIDE SHUT, fits in this paradox. People make themselves believe they have a greater view on life than all others while really they are the most blind themselves. The ones who think "they get it" and that everyone else is sheep are only fooling their own hearts.

    To me a big theme of Eyes Wide Shut is responsibility, and the importance of our own actions. The blurred line between the real and the unreal, between boring old life and fantasy and our dreams, is also very important as well, especially in the fact that sometimes we want - and need - that line to be blurred in order for us to find a deeper layer of living life as a whole.

  5. Greetings, Anon:

    I would like to make the following comments about your statements above ...

    To begin with, EWS is NOT about 'cults,' and not a single one of the few people who wrote exploratory essays about the film have made any statements to this effect.

    However, what Dr. Bill Harford does sneak into is a sex magick ritual by the group of global elite who I conveniently refer to as the Illuminati. This is a term that denotes a group of people who are SUN WORSHIPPERS and whose true object of worship is the fallen angel LUCIFER, whom THEY refer to as an angel of LIGHT.

    I know about this group first-hand because I have a family member who married a local businessman who is a member of this group, and who is associated with the Bush Crime Family and the Rothschild-Rockefeller family (yes, they ARE one in the same!).

    The use of 'conspiracy theorist' is a highly pejorative term used by this group to minimize the impact that a whole new group of truth-tellers have fostered -- we refer to ourselves as eso-researchers, (or esoteric researchers). Our group of people has sprung up as a new force on the political talk-radio, television, and podcast scene. For example, on my website THE KENTROVERSY TAPES, you will find my entire archive of interviews that I have done since I brought my website online in June 2005, almost two years ago now. Although the archive is not yet complete, ALL of my current and most recent interviews are there already.

    The things I write about are facts, and not theories.

    All any reader has to do is check out the extensive references and sources that are listed at the bottom of everything I publish.

    Man, you just might give Dale Gribble a run for his money... Interesting read however.

  7. Greetings, Anon:

    By your comment, I see that you are a fan of KING OF THE HILL -- a funny statement on the current state of the AmeriKan society.

    However, at the end of every single thing that I write, are numerous references to all the various research materials that were utilized in the creation of that particular piece.

    The EYES WIDE SHUT report, about which you are commenting here -- has been recognized as one of the best pieces of research that has done by anyone who has ever written about the TRUTH behind the symbolism in ths film.

    I have family members who are members of the very group of Elite that are shown in this film (the Satanic ritual that Dr. Bill sneaks into), and I have first-hand experience in this area.

    This garbage ruined my family, and this is one of the reasons WHY that I do what I do.

    Also, because of your reference to Dale Gribble, you are also saying I am some kind of conspiracy theorist.

    However, there is NOTHING theoretical about THE TRUTH -- which is what I report here, and in everything that I write.

    I have a saying, which certainly applies here:

    "If it's TRUE, it cannot be a THEORY!"
    -- Kentroversy (02/23/07)

    Thanks for your comment just the same, even though you are not yet ready to confront these TRUTHS head-on, at least you are reading about them, which is an excellent start, and one for which you certainly need to be commended.

    I have a question. What do you feel the ultimate point of EWS is then? Was EWS really about Kubrick trying to expose the Illuminati as dangerous and evil? If so... what was Kubrick's point to this, what did he hope to accomplish? Did he just want people to watch the movie and go... the Illumati are evil? Then what... if he's saying that does he think they need to be destroyed? Do you think there's more of a personal journey here than Kubrick just trying to expose this group, because otherwise I don't really see why Kubrick would go through all the trouble for such a simple basic message.

    Also, do you believe there was foul play with his death?

  9. Greetings:

    I have no comment on what Kubrick was trying to do with EWS, as I was never able to talk to him about it. What we do know is that EWS was based upon a 1926 novel called DREAM STORY (Traumnovelle).

    Beyond this, all my thoughts on this film have already been included in the report on which you have commented.

    Regarding his death, yes, there is plenty of evidence that it was FOUL PLAY, insofar as the CALLING CARD OF THE ILLUMINATI (occult symbolism) is all over his death. I discuss this in the report on the film as well.

    I would like to relate a story around EWS that I feel readers might be interested in. It is my own story, the effect that this movie had upon me, and what I believe Kubrick was trying to do in making this film.

    I have always had a great respect for Kubrick, and was very anxious to see EWS. I was not able to see it in the theater, but once it was released on DVD I had a chance to watch several times. It was during this period (over the Christmas 2000/New Year holiday of 2001, I believe) that I started to really get into the film and it's strange feelings it evoked in me.

    I want to also state that as strange as this may sound, when I first watched the film I really had a very powerful reaction to the scenes in which Dr. Harford sneaks into the ritual - feelings that were as if I were doing it as well - which I think was Kubrick's intent, obviously.

    After watching several times, I became curious and started searching the web for clues to this mysterious organization, and began a journey which really changed my life in many, many significant ways. I learned about the Illuminati, astro-theology, Freemasonry, and started doing research on symbolism. The more I learned, the more I began to feel as if this type of discovery is really what Kubrick intended, for those that would dig a bit deeper under the surface of the film.

    I began a journey that challenged all of my previous beliefs, along with a better understanding of the world around me. I began to see things in a totally different way, the more I learned.

    I will state that for a period of probably 5 or so years prior to my seeing EWS, I was in a period of questioning and ultimately rejecting some core beliefs I had held throughout my life surrounding religion and faith, etc... but this movie was the catylist for really digging in and searching for truth. I have to believe that this was Kubrick's intent, for those with eyes that were not "wide shut".

    There is no way to really express how much of an impact this film had on my life - undoubtedly more than any other film I've ever seen. Watching this film was like getting a glimpse into a world which is not normally discussed, not normally shown in major theatrical releases, and not really acknoledged by the media at all. It is frightening, disturbing, and yet also teases the viewer ever so slightly to take the journey that Bill Harford (and to a lesser degree, Alice) take. Peek under the curtain. Pick up those books in the bookstore that some might warn you not to read. Don't just accept things at face value. Look closer. There is more than meets the eye.

    I feel that in many ways, I have been through an awakening in my life, an illumination, and (although the preparation for it was years in the making) the epiphany that set it all into motion was Eyes Wide Shut. For that I will be forever grateful to Stanley Kubrick.

    Bill V that's great! You are living proof of Kubrick's genius. You are the actual target audience for this film in the heart of Stanley Kubrick.

    This is a good website, it's got it right as far as the Illuminati portion of the film's structure. There is much, much more. First, if you haven't read Lee Siegal's review [in Harpers at the time of the film's release], I highly recommend it. He's caught a lot of interesting esoteric stuff tangential to Ovid and Odysseus, whom Kubrick has referred to before.

    This film is not about the Illuminati, per se; that would be too facile for Kubrick I can assure you - they're important, but they're characters like everyone else. The average dumbshit wealthy American, Bill Harford, is equally important, as is one of the "crying women", his smart, capable trophy wife Alice.

    A trophy wife for a stupid jock moron who bumbled into good repute, whom some people think is a 'hunk' and some people think is really a gay no-talent frat boy doofus who is prone to an interest in joining mystery cabals. Do you see Kubrick's gears turning? Remember that gang that shoves Bill on the sidewalk and the hotel clerk? What religion does Tom Cruise profess? Why do you suppose Stanley picked Tom Cruise and Nicole to play these roles? Because they ARE THESE CHARACTERS IN REAL LIFE!! Perfect typecasting. Perfect. And think about the Hollywood politics of it. America simply cannot comprehend the depth of Stanley Kubrick's art.

    I have been meaning to write a long essay on EWS for a long time because it is the most complex and excellent film anyone has made for many many years. I may as well give y'all a preview of it here because you sound like you'd appreciate it.

    The title of my eventual essay is going to be "Minds Wide Shut: Late Capitalism and the Narcissism of the Occult".

    EWS is about America and its illness. It is an audio-visual diaGnosis. Stanley is telling us that the terms of bourgeois life in America are based upon utter falsehoods promulgated with serious intent by a class of elites whose media manipulation of bourgeois narcissism allows them to keep the general populace utterly hoodwinked into providing the means and the cover to continue the sham. The cover they provide is their eyes-wide-open inability to see or understand the vast parasitic corruption that has already usurped power from their illusory republic. You're right - it's the same theme as the Matrix told a different and more complex way.

    EWS is about our times and how the imperatives of late imperial capitalism - increasing competition for diminishing resources, the absurd and impossible need for "endless economic growth" - lead to an inevitable corruption as those with greater means act extralegally and antisocially to ensure their own positions. Secret cabals are anti-republican by their very nature and so they are not the friends of a republic, only of the wealth it creates.

    What is the black occult all about at the bottom of it? The very bottom? It's about getting something that you want. Getting something for YOURSELF. Even if what you are getting is an 'event' and not a thing, it amounts to the same thing: getting something for yourself. This is at the bottom of all of it. It is essential MATERIALISM. All black occultists do it because they want benefit for themselves. They won't admit it, but it's true. The imperative of the Crowned and Conquering Child. The unsocialized Id taking over: "I want X"...and there's no Mommy to administer spankings so the child is free to go on a killing rampage if it so decides.

    In EWS it is hollow desire and the fulfilling of it regardless of the consequences, all in an atmosphere of total corruption, falsehood, venality and crime.

    I love that you noticed Bill Harford going through doors. Because what is the hoodwink here? It pivots around the fact that cabals involve inclusion a private "inner sanctum" of elites that they hint you can join if you work at it and kiss their ass and do their bidding - then they'll let you into their tomb at Yale. But the average American like Bill is far too stupid to ever come close to even that level.

    Well the elites know all about this dynamic and have used it for centuries to control people who have been inculcated with just the easily controllable psyche that Bill Harford unwittingly exhibits.

    EWS is about the dynamic of spending your precious life energy scrambling to be included in that next higher "inner sanctum", only to discover that this one is no closer to the top either, and that it is populated by the same kind of selfish creeps you left in the last one, only richer. It is a shorthand for the entire corrupt corporate swindle in America - nobody calls bullshit on it because everyone dreams of being included in it.

    Bill is a total failure throughout the whole movie and NEVER AT ANY POINT has a handle on what is going on. He is the quintessential good looking dumbshit bimbo. He fails with the whores, his wife, the elites...he's absolutely blind to everything that is happening all the way through. Why? Look at what he eats and watches on TV: Wonder bread, Budweiser and football. He's the archetypal American chump...Tom Cruise. Did I mention that Kubrick is a genius?

    This is a movie where you have to watch it a bunch of times to check out all the objects in the background in every scene. Did you notice that every sign in every window in "New York" is sexual or fantasy or occult related?

    Women. They are important in EWS. Who's the hero here? F*ckin-A that's right, it's Alice. You very smartly made the connection that she was a possible Monarch girl too by relating her reaction to the mask on the pillow to her "dream" about being gangbanged by strangers. I hadn't noticed that before.

    Alice is a really smart capable girl that has been cowed by a culture that, for merely chauvinistic reasons, doesn't provide a place for smart capable women. They get cowed. They become the chattel of their husbands. They have been for centuries and down inside smart women know it. They are softly broken by it as a general case and that is one of the key sources of the alienation that leads to cults and cabals and anorexia and manic-depressive psychosis and fascism in America: repression of the vitality of women. Alice USED to have an art gallery but she lost it and now has to be a trophy wife.

    So look for a motif in EWS that I call "the crying woman", that is, the women in this film are all fraught by laments, some legitimate, some neurotic, some fantasical.

    The tricorned master on the balcony at the occult ritual is shown in a two-shot with 'his woman'. Look at her mask. A tear. Even at the top echelon of the innermost sanctum the women are still chattel and they know it, hence the small tear that subliminally stains the conscience of every woman in the capitalist Matrix. The women know, but it is futile to say, lest they be further castigated.

    To wrap up what will surely turn way too long if I don't, the Chrismas motif is part of the "materialist/narcissist/capitalist swindle" symbolism. What is Chrismas in America? Is it Christians going out and helping lepers? No. It's GETTING GOODIES FOR ME. It's greedy materialism falsely dressed up as something holy to be revered, when really it is the opposite. It's Santa selling you Wal-Mart. It's a lie like everything else in the Matrix. A sparkly alluring sexy lie that ruins your soul and makes you hollow. It's hypocrisy that, again, nobody will call bullshit on because it's part of the swindle that every one of us is complicit in.

    I could go on and on. I didn't get into the narcissism part here because that's another hour of writing I'm too tired to do right now.

    Thanks for your interesting site!

  14. Eyes Wide Shut also succinctly describes a waking dream, which this movie could be said to be...

    in a book he wrote about the film, Kubrick's co-screenwriter Frederic Raphael said he introduced the idea of a secret society to the director... Kubrick believed Raphael, who had actually just made the story up... Kubrick's own belief of the story convinced him to add the element to the screenplay...

    interesting essay, even for us non-conspiracy theorists...

    PS: the music playing in the opening scene of Alice undressing is the Shostakovitz waltz, not the Chris Isaak song...

  15. Greetings, Pete:

    I was working from the European cut of the film, and not the Region 1 USA DVD. On the DVD I have, the song that plays during Kidman's striptease is as I reported it to be -- Baby Did A Bad, Bad Thing by Chris Issak.

    Hello, Outstanding article, your research is impecable. I would like to pint out out that the during the scene where cruise is asked to unmask the chair looks like a double headed eagle if you look closely you can see the wings on either side of the chair as well.
    Ps- Also enjoyed your interview with Leo Zagami.
    Thanks for the great work and Godd bless!

    Thank you for the kind words -- I am glad that everyone has learned something important from reading my report on EYES WIDE SHUT.

    As far as my research is concerned, I have been doing this research since 1980, when I worked as an Assistant Librarian for a local library branch here in the Buffalo area. Thank you for noticing the hard work I have done.

    The design of the chair RED CLOAK sits in are actually twin URAEUS SERPENTS -- a design that originated in Ancient Egypt, and relates to royalty, divinity and authority.

    I have found your essay on "EWS" to be extremely fascinating and thought provoking.

    I have an engineering and scientific background, I am a Christian and consider myself a very healthy skeptic in the matters of paranormal and conspiracy theories. That being said, I do believe there is a Luciferian secret political machine to bring about a one world order. I do agree with you that this secret order had its beginnings far, far back in the antediluvian era. Like you, I have done the research myself and have traced occult symbols and secret societies back through time. The problem is, you have to weed out so much fluff and detritus during the research, especially much that abounds today, and you have to critique with a fine tooth comb all stories and theories to correlate it with laborious reading from factually redundant sources and information. You also have to run it through what I call the "common sense" test that all sane and intelligent people have if they really look at things from all angles.

    I just wanted to say I have found your research and symbology laid out in your essay to be very believable in my estimation. I wanted to say "Job well done."

    Look forward to reading more of your writing.

  19. Greetings, Guy:

    Thank you for the kind words on my piece on EWS. What a positively CREEPY flick it is, you know? And those moaning and groaning "backwards priests" when we get to the ritual portion of the film -- it sort of takes creepy to a new level, in my opinion, that is.

    I never would have thought that this would turn out to be my most popular special report -- but I guess that might be a testament to the hard work I put into the piece, as far as my research is concerned.

    The BEST WAY of sifting through the bullshit online has been to use my own intuition and gut feelings. I have never been wrong when using this method, as this instinct is there for a reason.

    They just re-released a two-DVD version of EWS, but I haven't had the chance to pick it up as of yet. I am interested to see if the bonus materials will ignore the occult aspects of the film.

    There has been a great deal of effort put in by the film's promoters to treat this as a film about MARITAL INFIDELITY ONLY.

    But that is NOT what makes this such an intriguing film ...

    First of all I'm sorry for some misspelling but I'm foreigner and I only studied English in school and not in any expensive or fancy English school.

    A few days ago I bought - finally - my DVD copy of Kubrick's EWS, as incredible as it may seem this movie is no more available in Poland since there is no distributor... very awkward I must say... I wonder why...

    Anyway after watching it the first time I decided to Google the subject and then I was lucky enough to "stumble" in this excellent blog. Congratulations for it.

    I watch the movie two more times after reading Kentroversy Papers and I must say that this movie has nothing to do with Imbd's synopsis about infidelity or complex sexual topics... this movie is an inside view of the Illuminati bloodlines, the global elite and the vast array of servants of them, the sold wannabes like Dr. Bill.

    Though the action takes place in the United States the plot could be somewhere in the western world or in some exclusive mansion or club of the elite all over the world. I think nobody commented the scene when Dr. Bill goes to the house were there is the dead men in his bed and his daughter in love with Bill. In the room the wallpaper pattern is the Fleur-de-Lis which is the symbol of the French royalty and also some European royalty such as the Spanish Bourbons and other “bloodlines”.

    I'm still trying to figure it out if Alice was at the mansion ritual during Bill's humiliation – because of the mask in the bed - or if she used to be one of the hookers hired by the elite for their orgies and sexual rites which explains her strange discomfort and wish to drink champagne during the first party plus the “see you again Alice” from Szandor and the oneiric bs about dreams with sex with several men.

  21. Greetings:

    As with everything about the Illuminati, there is a cover story associated with this film -- which as you point out is about "sexual infidelity and complex sexual issues." However, as you also rightly point out -- the film is really an inside look at the Illuminati.

    Was Alice at the sex-magick ritual party?

    It is about the ONLY explanation that describes the dreams she is having, along with the mask on the pillow.

    EWS was recently released in a 2-DVD SPECIAL EDITION here in AmeriKa, which I will be getting after the holidays. I am sure that it will be available in your area of Europe soon.

    Before release in a SPECIAL EDITION format -- the film studios let the film fall out of print. This is likely why you cannot locate a copy of the film on DVD at the moment.

    Again the "foreigner"

    Dear Kentroversy

    What have you done! This last few days I got deep into this EWS stuff! Thank you.

    Another detail to had - very important - is the film location mostly the Somerton House where takes place the masked party.

    According to this site:

    "" Somerton mansions is located in the United Kingdom, village of Mentmore, Buckingamshire where coincidently [not] the Rothschilds have plenty of properties.

    The palace or mansion is called Mentmore Towers and - according to Wikipedia "was built between 1852 and 1854 for Baron Mayer de Rothschild, who needed a house close to London. Later other Rothschild family homes were built at Tring in Hertfordshire, Ascott, Aston Clinton, Waddesdon and Halton.[1] Since 1846 Baron Mayer had been slowly buying land in the area.[2] However, it was not until 1850 that he bought the manor and advowson of Mentmore for £12,400 from the trustees of the Harcourt family."

    And some people call it conspiracy...

    "The design of the chair RED CLOAK sits in are actually twin URAEUS SERPENTS -- a design that originated in Ancient Egypt, and relates to royalty, divinity and authority."

    I do not think the chair is Uraeus Serpents. It is the Double-Headed Ealge, that is commonly found in Masonic symbology.

    You can see their opposing viewpoints and the crown on top of it.

    "Long used as the insigne of a Scottish Rite Mason, the "Double Headed Eagle of Lagash" is now the accepted emblem in the United States of America of the 32 Degree. It is the oldest crest in the world. It was a symbol of power more than two thousand years before the building of King Solomon's Temple. No other heraldic bearing, no other emblematic device of today can boast such antiquity."

    Which I think are not eagles, but Phoenixes.

    There is another site that analyzes EWS and the masonic connection.

  24. Truth Minion:

    I really do not understand your comment -- as in the description for Figure 16 -- I explain that the chair features the Egyptian Uraeus Serpents, plus I explain the symbolism of what they mean.

    So, what are you trying to say? I sure do not get it.

    In fact, here is my statement in its' entirety:

    Figure 16 - Dr. Harford is asked to kindly remove his mask. Incidentally, in the above screenshot, there is an Egyptian Uraeus Serpent with the two heads on the back of the chair. This relates to the Sun, and the two heads -- which face and East and West, relate to the rising and setting of the Sun.

    I noticed a part of your post where you questioned why Cruise and Kidman were married during the making of the movie and divorced shortly after.

    Nicole Kidman is from a rich ranching family in Australia. She's "connected". Need I say more?

  26. Greetings:

    Kidman's 'connections' make a lot of sense, once we know how successful her film career has been, to whom she was/is married, as well as her general 'stardom.'

    It then, should not surprise us that she was involved with a film like EYES WIDE SHUT.

    I just watched EWS last nite, and I must say....I looked for the many clues and symbols pointing towards a "special" message,an unveiling.. oh, yes..Alice is through the looking glass alright, Kubrick wanted to tell us the truth, and that brave man paid for doing so, I feel a bit triumphant,me a midwestern housefrau!!! because the suspicions I have had for several years regarding a secret Satanist Cabal in place seem to be correct...thank you Stanley, from a housewife and mom in shit, The stench is leaking out.....yep. I pray that Myan prediction proves true because these pricks who hurt children deserve to be grilled alive, wait a minute,,,isn't that what GOD said would happen to the wicked??? Oh yes, now that will be a show worth seeing!!!!!!! Great blog, incidentallly.....Kansas Gal

  28. Greetings, Kansas Gal:

    Thank you for your kind words about my website. I put in a great deal of hard work, which I hope shows with the quality of my research-journalism.

    EWS is one of the all time creepiest films I have ever seen anywhere, made all the more so by the fact that it shows what REALLY goes on behind the locked doors of the mansions of the powerful Global Elite.

    I agree with you 1000% -- those who sexually abuse children deserve the DEATH PENALTY. That is what THAT LAW should be made for, and not trapping those who have three traffic tickets (or similarly minor infractions) behind bars for life with those THREE STRIKES laws in Los Angeles, for example.

    I am also happy that you found my analysis of this film to be worthwhile.

    I work for the enlightenment of people just like YOU.

    Warmest Regards,

    Buffalo, NY USA

  29. Hi Kansas Gal again, your r quite welcome, and I commend you for what you are exposing, if you ever want any info on what goes on in Kansas, will be happy to help, there is an Oz museum here, but nothing else at this time in the way of symbols, land leyouts,,,except, you may want to check out the collection of interesting statues "donated" by folks in the Kansas City Plaza, lot's of gods and such like, you know Bacchus...and the usual pagan garbage, take the'll see....jeems.

  30. Few believe me when I tell them that the rulers of this (living) planet (with it's own central chakra-sun) are of reptilian bloodlines. "Queens", "ministers", "bankers". You see, to be a psycopath you've only got to LACK one certain quality - Empathy. They want their own invented "money" from us workers for breathing the air!!! It's sick. Revolting. Almost funny, but I'd never call it that since it never makes me laugh..
    What someone commented about how this movie at it's core was made to trigger questions and curiosity, is The Truth. Remember that Kubrick had total control of his movies, and that promoting Eyes Wide Shut as "Cruise, Kidman (Ken and Barbie, absolutely) Kubrick" was HIS plan, HIS choice. It was also the last movie he made, and perhaps he wasn't afraid of getting ritually murdered my these "politicians" (literally cold-blooded, wealthy, secretive pedophiles, liers and murderers) at such an old age. Every movie he made dealt with so-called major themes (check out Rob Ager's analysis of 2001 and Clockwork - I usually steer away from such, but always instinctively search for that ultimate.. and this is it), and the last one he made certainly wasn't any exeption. I'm not with the CIA, I'm not trying to ridicule anyone by relating the Illuminati to those vampires (Dracula means dragon). I'm just a human being myself who's read the Essene Gospels of Peace by (the antichrist/Pope-banned, REAL) Jesus where he talks about God, sure, but God being US, comming from TWO gods, not just "The Heavenly Father" (which is actually our unlimited minds/our common spirit) but also "The Earthly Mother" (our physical waking bodies). After the Anunnakis arrived some hundred thousand years ago and enslaved humanity to dig for gold, we forgot our Earth completely. The three biggest religions are each part of the conspiracy as well. The tale even goes the same all over the world with three golden/shining "angels" or serpents coming down from the misty clouds. Sure, I'd rather be a conspiracy theorist than a coincidence theorist. The serpents on the throne (check out the New World Order logos like the WHO etc.) is just more details in the movie.. Kubrick knew, common to what most shamans know, that we are being ruled by 13 Pindar/dragon bred shapeshifters (sounds crazy, but remember: These are only words. Call them something else if that's what it takes for you to take seriousness seriously). Oh, the details! Ever noticed the blue flower pin on the Hungarian's jacket at the Christmas party? It's a Forget-me-not. Heavy freemasonic symbolism. Most freemasons only want to climb and get up higher, but what they do not realize (or care about) as they earn more and more bloodstained money that corrupts, is that there are reptilians on top. Talk about selling your soul to Satan which cannot be healthy for the two Gods that is YOU and YOUR BRAIN.
    Research Anunnaki, Chitauri, Parasites, Babylon, Illuminati bloodlines (Ziegler has an apartment with old, painted portraits that FIT INTO THE WALLS' ARCHITECTURE!), "The War on (anything)", Doomsday seed bunkers (they've been built in Norway as well, the country I'm from) - and it's even official now! Read the Essene Gospels, KNOW what is right and what is the true laws. It's in us. In life. Love is the only truth. Everything else is an (sensory) illusion. As Plato said: Good people don't need laws to tell them how to behave while the evil people always find ways to avoid them. I only hope that "the majority" isn't too busy putting on make-up, drinking aspartame (that breaks up into methanol molecules inside the body!) and alcohol (another perverted poison) and getting headakes from their Ritaline-infested children. Sad, sad, sad. Especially since we truly are only one conscienceness experiencing itself subjectively. There IS no such thing as "death" - it's DMT - and life IS only a... you guessed it... DREAM. A Dream Novel.)

    I especially agree with your assessment of what it is that creates a psychopath.

    Congrats on your detailed research! I enjoyed reading your explanations. I have from time to time revisited the meanings of EWS ever since first viewing upon release.

    EWS is just the kind of movie that really sticks with your psyche.

    It is my contention that EWS (and several other of Kubrick's films) only seem like a mysterious expose from our point of view (that of a slightly intelligent cog alienated from the inner power circles). Truly these movies carry a different meaning to the elite!

    I can only guess that the elite are horrified/thrilled at the thought of being exposed. "Oh no, the Doctor Bill has come due, what payment will he demand?". And then Kubrick subtly and deftly reassures them that they can maintain control using the methods described in the movie: secrecy, exploitation, death.

    Thank you for your kind remarks on my EWS report. This is representative of the type of material which will be appearing in my forthcoming book, which I hope to release by the fall of 2008.

    The book is about the American Mass media -- TV, Popular Music, and Film.
