Corporate Logos as Occult Symbols, The Vesica Piscis
The "Occult", in a tinctured sense, has always controlled "vice". First, it is incredibly profitable, and second, the various vices of the world remain but temptations upon which rewards and punishments can be meted out, and thus a ruling elite may remain focused on ruling through controlling the avenues of corruption upon which the people may come to believe that "order" as provided for by the ruling elite is necessary.
The Opium Wars offer but a small window of the use of drugs to destroy cultures and create conditions to imbed particular philosophies, not the least of which is the very Alphabet upon which English is predicated. Today, the world of narcotics can best be viewed as being entirely controlled by Setian Occult forces within cellular national security blankets. It is no secret that the United States was in Vietnam partially to control the opium of the Golden Triangle, and that American military might is used to protect or otherwise control the cocaine fields in Colombia and the massive heroine being produced in Afghanistan.
Where in the previous generations, drugs were used to destroy foreign cultures, very much as alcohol was deployed against the native American Indians, today, with control nearly absolute, drugs are used to prey on the domestic populations, with the intended effect of both weakening the society and strengthening the police powers.
There should not be any aversion to the simple truth that CO-Caine implies "with Cain", or they who gladly murder their fellow Brothers.
This control of "vice" extends into all manner of society and manifests itself nearly everywhere - if only one is willing to but glimpse and understand.
Vice as Natural Human Behavior
It can be said that "if a person has no vice, then he is a novice, and thus has not experienced what living has to offer." Vices are, essentially, everywhere. They squeeze on the individual and hold the individual tight, and if properly fastened to the subject, never ever lets the person the go. Such are the nature of vices.
Vices, at the end of the day, can be defined as virtually any focused interest by the individual, and this definition can further be fused to arbitray religious constructs and turned into being of the "devil himself". Vices are difficult to understand for the laity, for ultimately, all focused thoughts are vices - it is only the cultural moral influences that provide vices with coloring and admixtures.
So long as there is this form of Earthly living, there will be vices waiting to grab and latch onto the person. There is a universal component to vices. So it should not be surprising to hear Manley P. Hall comment in Secret Teachings of All Ages, "Man's evil habits therefore actually became the unconscious perpetuators of his philosophical precepts. "We must admire the wisdom of the Initiates," writes Papus, "who utilized vice and made it produce more beneficial results than virtue." Does not this act of the ancient priests itself afford proof that the entire mystery of the Tarot is wrapped up in the symbolism of its zero card? If knowledge was thus entrusted to fools, should it not be sought for in this card?"
Thus it is the use concious acknowledgement of what is vice and how it works that lends the idea so skillfully to the Craft. By simply imbedding the Codes into materialism, the very habits that make up materialism become the progenitors of the ancient symbols and inherent energetical designs crafted into them. Hence it is only natural that corporate logos, to they who are in the know, be used as symbols of the Occult for these symbols are the very foundation to the archetypical construction of Western constructs.
The Vesica Piscis as an Occult Foundational Symbol
Yarker references in his work "The Arcane Schools", "It was in these prehistoric times that the symbols of the two creative forces of nature developed, represented by crux-ansata, lithoi, or lingam, and the vesica piscis, or yoni. They are equally the signs of a dogma which lay at the root of all religions in regard to fire, not the fire burning upon the altar, but the fire which that symbolised and was termed "divine darkness," a spiritual or magical fire, seen by gifted seers, of which the earthly symbols are the pyramids, the obelisk, and the church spires.<<"The Rosicrucians," Jennings.>>
Theodosius Obelisk, Istanbul
With such a statement, in context, does one really think that the Obelisk as the Washington Monument rising up through the Vesica Piscis, does not carry with it some significant occult meaning? If you believe so, how would you organize your thoughts surrounding such? But no matter, for if the Pyramids, the Obelisk, and the Church Spires are but earthly symbols, what then of the Vesica Piscis?
The Vesica Piscis, two interlinked circles, is also known as "the Yoni". The name "yoni" refers to the middle portion of the interlocking circles, is derived from the Sanskrit meaning, "divine passage". That the yoni is the feminine, the yoni should be viewed such that the divine passage becomes a correlation to sex, or male/female union. It is this correlation, and its relation to rebirth and regeneration that remains a basic truth at the very core of Occult structural foundations.
And seeing how "vice" is used as a means to advance and preserve the philosophy, what better vice than that of "materialism", and what better symbol of "materialism" than that of "the MasterCard", which enables materialism beyond many a person's economic means?
However, this symbol is found in many a corporate logo. How about Chanel or the famed Sedars Sinai Medical Center?
The famed Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, California?
And of course, KOOL Cigarettes
It is all very cool when you begin to see that things are not as they appear, and the reality of the Construct begins to burst open like a bud before your eyes.
Imagine a clever code for G-d hidden here, in the corporate symbol for Gucci? And some would only see the Vesica Piscis!
