The original Idea of the Illuminati seems to have evolved into a question of the free flow of information and symbols of significance which are generated by an intellectual elite.
On the other side of this are the soldiers and enforcers of the system that represent technology used to control the people and keep them in check.
Above them and completing the pyramid are the Masters that control the flow of resources to either of these groups and consequently the flow that trickles to us: the great unwashed.
As with the Hegelian dialectic, The Master is also the servant of these two forces. As resources flow from one group to the other (The Lion or the Lamb); The common people see a limiting or opening of potential and a rise or fall in their civilization.
This interplay and shifting between the two is very connected to geopolitics and which Masters (Houses) are allowed the flow of given resources to redistribute.
A dearth of resources call for a limitation of intellectual resource and even potential disassembling and clampdown of information which furthers the cultural and economic freefall.
Organizations and cultures can maintain monolithic, information controlling institutions insofar as new challenges have not arisen that require the shifting of the status quo. Ergo Information flow, beyond the rote and cyclical maintenance need is kept to the highest levels instead of being disseminated.
This control structure also imposes itself on the Interracial, Intercultural exchanges given to DNA. As a culture remains propagandistic and closed to external information it calls for a closed racial profile paralell to the lack of new or free information flow.
Again, as information flows freely a monlithic, closed society is given to exchange and diversify until the ultimate swing in poles brings about an imposed control and crystalization of hierarchy.
This was broached in the flow of civilization and dominant cultural symbolism from Mesopotamia–Greece–Rome–England–America.
At this juncture we started to analyze the imagery and dominant cultural Ideals as mirrored and imposed on Religion, Economic and Cultural institutions.
To further the debate is to look at the inevitabilities of current situations and potential synthesis in the eschatological age.
Will it be a synthesis of fire or of reinvigorating a golden age through Union and the merging of the future by releasing the biases of the past.
My 5 cents.
