The All-Seeing Eye: Modern Use of a Hijacked Symbol

The all-seeing eye is a symbol of divine omniscience or sinister influence depending on how it is used. In this second article tracing the history of this symbol we will delve into its use over the last 200 + years which takes this pristine positive symbol to its increasingly malevolent use and implications.

  1. Hi David, I totally agree with you. Well, before, I used to believe that it is a satanic symbol, because there are so-called satanic churches who use this symbol and the “baphomet”. Well as I studied further, and reading the bible, satan also masquerade as “light” using the same symbol. I believe that illuminati exists, I believe in the conspiracy of NEW WORLD ORDER, enslaving people, destabilizing countries, etc but them using the EYE is not supposed to be, because the EYE is a symbol of divine creator,a God of LOVE.

    God is light and Light is Life and Love. Anyone using the symbol and does not know how to love others is not in the true light.

    Thanks for your enlightenment, man.


  2. not enough information

  3. The Lord bless you David! This is good, needed, timeless work, man! It would take too long for me to express the implications… Just thank you for your curiousity, your courage to pursue truth, and obedience in sharing! This is awesome.

  4. I appreciate this article because earlier today I came to the conclusion that I’ve been watching Way Too Many videos about the illuminati (about 5 years) and I decided I will no longer be going for that bait. Although I learned a lot about the Rothschilds and The Fed. I am sick of giving my energy to the negative. I believe the most powerful thing we can do (once informed) is to simply disregard them. God is in control. Theirs is only the illusion of control.

    Matthew 22:20-22King James Version (KJV)

    And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?
    They say unto him, Caesar’s. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar’s; and unto God the things that are God’s.

    Thank you for pointing out to me the image I have come to loathe can become one of spiritual significance.

  5. if you have an eye in the sky photo..what does it mean?

    • Hi Mel,

      Your question sounds interesting, but I’m not sure what you’re referring to specifically. Perhaps to the header image in the first article? Or a general image with a sky and an eye looking down? I think in that case it’s like the first article mentions: “…eye symbolism to generally represent a benevolent creator force watching over, helping and protecting humanity” and from this article: “a benevolent God watching over creation”

  6. An interesting read indeed. My personal views are as follows:
    I believe the symbol (and most symbology) are intended to deceive. They usually start off with noble, positive intent to get buy in, but then almost always morph into symbols with sinister undertones cleverly and subliminally displayed so as not to be too overt in its propagation. By the time its true motives become public, its symbolism in all its nefarious glory is already accepted and normalised by the masses.
    You made reference to its origins in pt 1 and touched on the use of the symbol by many mainstream religions over the past millennia. Interestingly enough – with specific reference to its use in Islam – (true) Islam does not advocate, encourage, condone nor instigate the use of any and all symbols for this exact reason. If anything, it abrogates its use. Did you know the the common use of the “star and crescent” is not an Islamic thing and is not a religiously vetoed symbol of the faith? (just a side note…)
    Anyways, I strongly recommend you do a bit of research on Islam’s prophesy of the coming of the “One Eye’d Imposter” – known as the Dajjal. This might lend a bit of context into how Muslims view the sudden and widespread publicising of the “all-seeing eye”.
    Thx again for the interesting read.

    • Hi The Saint,

      Thanks for sharing about Dajjal – I’d never heard of it/him. I imagine Muslims who know about this prophecy imagine the materialistic, atheist culture of the west, the one with ‘one-eyed’ pop stars at it helm – are a part of this deception. It helps me to fathom the insanity of extremist (not true) Islam.

    • There’s impostors in most key positions of societies world wide. These are mostly bribed people with a small portion of the deceiving hierarchy’s loot. They give them some money and other perks to SELLOUT everyone else and enslave the world with their number, mark, and system to control you buying, selling, and lifestyles etc. They’re building reeducation facilities world wide and the US currently operates its entire legal system under illegal and rights violating FEMA policies. You cannot get a honest court defense in civil, or criminal courts. “They simply run as many people through for profits, and reeducation to obey as possible These LIARS pretend to be the moral authorities, but aren’t. They’re simply bribed to SELLOUT everyone else to help in the slave systems. They pretend to be intelligent, but are unwise robbing and enslaving others and themselves long term. Learn to recognize these professional liars in key positions of organized religions, smaller government controlled churches(almost all now have to sign away their rights and follow scripts), the corporate structure, charity scams, government, and social/ education/ indoctrination systems. Then you can reject all their lies and enslavement systems. Put these things to the best good ethical use. Remove these liars and replace them with selfless ethical people. Peacefully Unite Against The Deceivers.

  7. Great read David, very informative and I think deserving of part 3….

    There seems to be a lot behind the current mis-use of this symbol and why so many corporations and government agencies are using it. The commonality perhaps runs deeper and the mean threads may actually lead back to the first knot.

    Thanks for the research on this, I think its really great to have this outlined. I did somehow miss this follow up altogether, and found it because of the recent comment in the side bar. Perhaps including this follow up as a link at the end of Part 1 or even including it as part of the ‘You May Also Like’ section to make it easier to find.

    • Thanks Layla, yes last week I put in a link to this article at the end of the first one to make it easier as well as links to the Total View interviews on these topics.

  8. I don’t believe that the use of the eye on the U.S. dollar bill was a work of darkness. It may have even been the opposite. The emblem and the wording were designed in 1782 [1] by Charles Thomson [2], a founding father also known for painstakingly translating the Greek bible directly to English [3]. “Annuit coeptis” means that “Providence favors our undertakings” [4] (remember early white settlers in America were devoutly Christian). “Novus ordo seclorum,” meaning “New order of the ages,” is a phrase that was taken directly from a spiritual poem by Virgil. According to the wiki on the phrase, “medieval Christians read Virgil’s poem as a prophecy of the coming of Christ.” [5]

    Considering the above and that the U.S. dollar was also created in the late 18th century, I don’t think it really matters when the reverse of the seal was added to the dollar. [6]


    • Those things you list are true of the Great Seal, thanks, I was aware of all of that although I didn’t go into that much detail in the article. As already stated in the article I think the use of the eye on the great seal was for good reasons so I agree it is not a work of darkness at that stage.

      I think you are not considering a chunk of history though with your last statement.

      The history of the dollar shows that the dollar and banking system in 1934, when the seal was placed on the dollar, was different to the late 18th century. For example, it had changed in 1913 with the federal reserve act and it changed again after world war two with the Bretton Woods agreement.

      There are incremental changes happening over a period of time, perhaps part of a long term plan, until eventually we get to the non-gold standard perpetual debt fractional reserve lending fiat currency central banking system (

      All this along with crony capitalism and the rise of the military industrial complex I see as examples of gradually increasing elitism and control which the all-seeing eye over the unfinished pyramid has come to represent. This was the “new deal” Roosevelt played a part to help along its way and I see his placement of the symbol, in its elitist sense, on the very key mechanism of that increasing control as telling.

      • Yeah I caught that part now on a second read, when you say it is at that point that it could be said the symbol was hijacked. Nevertheless, based on what I’ve read I can’t come to the conclusion that intentional diabolism was involved. And if it’s not intentional, it’s not really diabolism.

        I am reminded of The Flight of the Feathered Serpent, when Judas says, “Mister Roosevelt is, with no doubt, a man of very good intentions, but…”, and later he reminds us that “in reality, no one sins deliberately; no one can do evil deliberately.” It’s my personal view that these were honest words from someone more awake than most. So I have a hard time believing that on an individual level there has ever been this grand diabolical scheme. There are obvious evils committed by the sincerely mistaken, such as murder, rape, etc., but I think many of the things made out to be evil plots are actually just sincerely mistaken responses to tough situations by people with the power to make those responses.

        • If you go down the rabbit hole far enough to join the dots together you might view history differently. You might begin to think it possible that some people deliberately foment wars and economic depressions for profit and increasing control. Perhaps some well intentioned but flawed and manipulated people get used as pawns or puppets in other people’s games. Then again probably the dark forces consider themselves well intentioned too.

  9. Thanks David very interesting, for a lot of us its hard to understand the power that some of these symbols actually hold as we are all so caught up in the physical/ material world, thanks for pointing out the greater significance of these symbols.

  10. Some more modern use examples:
    Sydney Eye Tower and the London Eye apart from their names being similar also at the moment have the same type of eye designed logo;

    These are major tourist attractions in major cities, how many people are being exposed to this eye symbolism via these? Is it acclimating the public to get them used to accepting an eye symbol for some agenda to be carried out in the future?

  11. Great follow up article David. It’s been great learning about the sacred origins and meaning of this symbol and having it laid out when/where the shift of meaning of this symbol started to happen.

    It will be great to talk with you about this topic further on Total View!

  12. Could it be that these evil operators want us to believe that it is they who see everything so we should fear them and not God?

  13. Thanks David I found your article full of very interesting information and I totally agree with what your saying.
    I feel that it’s very important to bring awareness regarding this sacred symbol, and I feel we my do everything possible to prevent evil from controlling humanity.

  14. mr.david are you trying to convey that the shape of the symbol is right but the way we are depicting(evil) is wrong???
    if we consider the same symbol in the dollar bill is good or almighty is it right??

    whether we have to change the way we see it???

    • Hi aravind, I’m saying it is originally a positive symbol but has come to be regarded by many as symbolic of an evil-minded elite due to the way these elite have used it. Intent has a lot to do with it. If we use the symbol in a positive way, in a positive context, then it has a positive intent and the symbol can then be inspiring and so interpreted this way.
