A TALISMAN FOR THE REALM
At the time of his forming the organization of the Illuminati (Bavaria 1776) Adam Weishaupt elucidated his thoughts as to the nature of a pyramid structure. “With such organization”, he proclaimed, “I can set the world on fire.”
When Weishaupt had his metaphorical brain spasm, while contemplating pyramids, rather than comprised of stacked blocks of limestone, he imagined each and every soul present on the surface of the planet, stacked together as living stones, with each and every individuals’ resources bound together under common cause and at the disposal of the master stone sitting at its apex.
The Bavarian Illuminati made no bones about their intentions. They were clearly laid out in the organization’s Manifesto. The primary goal was to root out and extinguish all organized structures, religious and governmental. These iconoclasts perceived such organization as divisive and tending towards corruption which had to be dismembered. That certainly may be true, but their goal was to replace what was dismantled with one single and even more massive structure, whose peak we are to imagine would be as white as snow. As I write these words, John Lennon’s song: Imagine, wafts through my brain.
Such it is when the depraved elemental nature of man strives to concretize spiritual abstractions of a higher order realm. The scrap-heap of history is littered with examples of Empires that have crumbled because the capstone was incapable of resisting the seductive forces, innate of its position. It is for this the term, “casting the pearls to the swine” was brought to bear by the Alchemist: to describe the greedy puffer, whose heart, like Tolkien’s fictional character Gollum, while salivating over the shiny object imbued with such power, wrenched at his soul until nothing was left. One cannot add flesh and bone to the hierarchic structure of spiritual abstraction without introducing elemental imperfections from the alchemical mix resulting in its transition. We, as individuals, are poignant reminders of such alchemy. As history abundantly proves, the perishable and imperfect elemental side of this admixture tends to rule the day. It is for these very same Duelist ideas that the Romish Popes sought to squelch the Cathars and Gnosticism. The Cathars knew the elemental king as wicked.
It has been suggested that, from the deepest reaches of human history, Kingship was bestowed from on high upon some remote human figure. Succeeding generations of Kings then, following the appropriate formula, inherited the anointed position. As long as the King remained the servant that he was intended, happiness flourished and all was fine within the realm, the King continued to reign. But, once the King began to rule, the despot emerged. Darkness, fear and suspicion begin to creep in. Serve, and reign…rule, and tyranny is bound to follow.
As Tolkien points out, it requires one of extremely pure heart, to reject the seductive forces bound up within the symbol of the Ring. The impure heart falls prey to vain-glorious acts. And, in analogy, tyranny moves to abuse the powers conveyed in the mass of living stones, subjects of the Realm, magnified in the person of the King, the capstone becomes an oppressively crushing burden to the stones below.
The ties that bind? How does a despotic heart harness the resources of a sea of flesh? Tolkien’s Ring Trilogy is quite frankly, a book of revelation. The Ring, in Tolkien’s epic, is conjured up as representative of a symbolic and magical talisman, an object, imbued with astronomical and astrological alignments born to it from the moment and location of the objects birth, and sealed with subliminal Rune engravings to tug at the soul. The Ring’s characteristics stand witness to the craftsman’s talismanic intentions for the circular image in Tolkien’s tail: “One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.”
We can easily see that in Tolkien’s epic, the symbol for a circle, in the garb of a ring, is a clearly intended metaphor to bind together the infinite forces of the universe and lay them at the disposal of its owner. In ancient times, images of circles were utilized to impress the idea or notion of infinity, unity and binding. In the object of a specially created ring, the result is a superficially innocuous and subliminally potent magical instrument…a talisman.
Now, from recent history, let us examine the possibility of governmental seats having maybe employed such talismanic forces. Let’s compare Tolkien’s tale with actual fact.
Here is an example of another type of ring. It is circular in nature and as such, evokes similar subconscious feelings of binding upon its bearer. What you are focusing on in this image specimen, are the edges of a 5 Reichsmark coin minted during the rule of the 3rd Reich. All Nazi coins minted during the period of their rule had the example Rune script engraved into the outer edge of each Realm coin. It is quite a remarkable display of metallurgy. The script reads: “Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz.” The literal translation that I have come up with is: Common good goes before self-interest. In today’s world, from the German idea of Gemeinnutz, the notion for Commonwealth evolved. What other medium could possibly have a more widely reaching and tighter binding effect, than the coin of a Realm…binding the individuals resources together into the finely tuned apex of a single mind? A talisman in every pocket. “One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.” Remember, Weishaupt proclaimed, “With such organization I can set the world on fire.”
Amazingly, 3rd Reich coins are not exclusive examples utilizing the binding symbol of a circle, emblazoned with subliminal talismanic Runes. In the United States the curious motto on the coin of the realm is written in Latin, of which the majority of the public has absolutely no clue of its meaning.
But, one does not necessarily need to fully comprehend the script, to fall prey to the intent of its craftsman. The script reads: E Pluribus Unum: Out of Many, One. Not only do we have the same ancient circle symbol in the shape of a coin, evoking the notion for infinity and unity, but also both German and Latin scripts, in Runic fashion, pronounce the binding together of all individuals into a single unit. It’s as though the script is intended to affirm what the image of the circle already impresses. Although the Germanic example is less obvious by implying that it is for the common good…the individual stone must place itself into the public heap, to the exclusion of self-interest. The intent is still the same. “Rather than being for the benefit of the common public, its real focus is towards the apex of power.” Both Runes have, undoubtedly, the same intent…that being, to corral the potential of each individual for the benefit of the capstone. The call to communion is simply a ruse emanating from a corrupt pinnacle whose heady ego has a long ago deigned subservience to its baser self, which has become enamored of its majestic perch.
You may ask, so, what’s wrong with attempting to emulate such lofty philosophical ideology? From a spiritual perspective, or abstraction, without dressing it down into elemental garb, it is as beautiful as a field full of butterflies and flowers.
Within weak elemental hands of human nature, it could very well be a road map to hell…like throwing the pearls to the swine. Of course, the hope is always for a Gold Capstone pure of heart.
In light of the recent turmoil outside, these then are the thoughts that have been impressed upon me.

“One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them.”
Runic band engraving around circumference of Nazi coins:
Gemeinnutz geht vor Eigennutz
Common good goes before self-interest (Commonwealth)
Common interest over private interest
Gemeinnutz is a use for all – nearly always in the Gegeneinandersetzung to the “self-interest”, the use only for itself (“Gemeinutz goes before self-interest”).
“The common good comes before the private good.”
E Pluribus Unum
Out of Many, One
