Symbolism of the esoteric variety, is willfully placed in high budget works of entertainment and intended to be understood by a small group of individuals capable of recognizing and interpreting the hidden meaning or occult symbolism depicted. Various films, television programs, and even fantasy films (such as Pete’s Dragon) will feature interior or hidden elements including: Easter Eggs, Metaphors & Allegories, and Illuminati or Esoteric Symbolism.
Esoteric symbolism of a numeric variety is displayed in a wide form of popular media. The general public may find it rather confusing or too obscure to notice off-hand. However, after familiarizing yourself with the numerical or esoteric scheme you may find it easier to decipher and spot the hidden symbols so meaningful to the Elite/Secret Societies.
Pete’s Dragon Gematria Study
Pete’s Dragon is a 2016 live action and CGI feature film from Walt Disney Pictures. The film is a remake of the November (notice the 11 here) 1977 musical fantasy film of the same name, written by Malcolm Marmorsteain. The film takes place during the year 1983, just as in the setting of the esoteric Netflix hit Stranger Things, directed by the Duffer Brothers. That particular series is also set around the November of 1983, while the original Pete’s Dragon was released 6 years prior in November of 1977. The 2016 film version was written and directed by film buff David Lowery, a recent indie director who is quite familiar with several occult/esoteric works including “River of Fundament”.
Pete’s Dragon revolves around an orphaned boy who can see an “invisible” mythical green dragon whom he has named Elliot. The fantasy is set around the Pacific Northwest and includes various numerical schemes, as well as nature based elements/color tropes to distinguish a hidden “man vs. nature” allegory and the familiar four element scenario.
What Is The Importance Of The Green Dragon?
The Green Dragon Society
Through centuries the symbol of the Green Dragon has come to represent the powers held by the elite, those reclusive members of a secret society, as well as the art of utilizing hidden magic (invisible magic).
Prior to World War 1, members of a secret society within Japan crafted the order of the Green Dragon – The Green Dragon Society. The Japanese developed a program by which the powers of prophecy and control of magic elements, including those basic 4 elements (Earth, Water, Air, Fire) where being utilized during secret rituals. Legends state that
members of the Green Dragon were capable of holding or crafting magic powers that enabled them to either manipulate or see into the future. The only Westerner to become a member of this Secret Society was Nazi influence Professor Karl Haushofer.
Influenced by the mystical nature and secretive abilities of the Green Dragon, Haushofer would go on to help influence numerous Nazi’s in matters of the occult, and as legend would have it, to learn of the Japanese magic.
“Later Haushofer was a Nazi and was influential in forming Nazi racial policy. Haushofer was also a member of the Vril Society or Luminous Lodge. The Vril Society is supposedly one of the sources of the Nazi party with early party members overlapping with the Vril, Thule and other secret societies.
The Vril Society, and later the Nazis, organized expeditions to Tibet starting in 1926, ending in 1942 trying to contact the Cave Oracles of Tibet. These expeditions contacted the Adepts of Agarthi. In 1929 some of the adepts returned to Germany with the Germans and formed lodges in Berlin, Munich and Nuremberg, though some sources say that only a lodge in Berlin was formed.” – Bibliotecapleyades
It was the influence of Haushofer on Nazi ideology which lead to a short documentary film to be produced in 1943 titled ‘Plan For Destruction’, which was nominated for an Academy Award.
Symbols of the Nazis would later include the power of the upright triangle, representing a portion of the “As Above So Below” doctrine. The upright pyramid sign was flashed by Hitler as a hex-craft symbol for the upward movement of the Nazi’s and their growing occult powers. In the modern era numerous celebrities, now under the influence of occultist, have adopted the pyramid hand gesture once utilized by Adolf Hitler and the members of the Nazi occult.
The Green Dragon Tavern
The Green Dragon Tavern was a public house and tavern used by the American Revolution and Freemasons as a meeting place located on Union Street Boston. The tavern served as a secret grounds for numerous revolutionary groups to plan and co-ordinate amongst fellow Masons, such as Paul Revere. The tavern is known as the birthplace of the American Revolution, even ‘The Boston Tea Party’ was planned at the Green Dragon.
“But it is perhaps to the political associations which cluster around its name, that the Green Dragon Tavern is more particularly indebted for its historic celebrity. It was here that many of the most important and eventful of the political transactions preceding the Revolution were, if not positively inaugurated, discussed, matured and put into execution. That this was so, is undoubtedly in some measure to be accounted for by the fact, that the Hall in the building was the only room in the Northern section of the town, excepting Deblois’s Hall, on the corner of Queen and Hanover streets, which at that time was adapted to popular assemblies; and by the additional and perhaps more significant fact, that the principal leaders of the Revolution in Boston, were members of the Masonic Fraternity, and many of them of the Lodge which held its communications there, – a circumstance which would very naturally influence them in the selection of the place for their private consultations” – Masonicworld.com
Pete’s Dragon & The Four Elements – Color Tropes
In 1977, Pete is a five-year old boy who is on a road trip with his parents when their car crashes while avoiding a dear. The parents are killed and the boy wanders off into the forest carrying with him a red backpack and a book titled “Eliott Gets Lost”.
The color trope representing: “Earth, Wind, Fire, Water”, emerges quickly as seen in the book that Pete reads prior to the crash. The book displays a red back pack, the same color as the one used by Pete, indicating the power of passions or fire in esoteric terms. While the green blanket shown in the book illustrates the comforting nature of Earth forces, which is predictive of the appearance of the Green Dragon. Here the blanket represents something akin to a soothing or ‘safe’ elemental force – later shown through the peaceful nature of the Dragon. The yellow element of the Air, which in ancient times represented the spirit, is shown with shirt on the boy in the book, as well as with the hair color of Pete and his own jacket.
“Green – The Earth is nurturing and stable, solid and firm, full of endurance and strength. In color correspondences, both green and brown connect to the Earth, for fairly obvious reasons! In Tarot readings, the Earth is related to the suit of Pentacles or Coins.” – Patti Wigington, Paganwiccan.about.com
For Neo-Pagans and modern-day Witchcraft practice, the symbols illustrated by the color tropes in the book, as well as on the clothing of the films characters, tells an intimate story of a nature vs man ideology and pathway for spiritual magic or hidden magic to occur. Usually this ideology is followed by the appearance of a guiding compass, which of course is presented in the film as well.
Petes Car Crash
Upon crashing in the woods, Pete emerges from the car and heads into the forest where he is followed by 5 wolves. At this point the boy is aged 5, soon the Green Dragon appears to whisk Pete away to safety. The film utilises several key colors to distinguish or represent the classic four element trope, the patterns of Yellow, Red, Blue, and Green are used throughout Pete’s Dragon in order to illustrate the nature vs man theme or a hidden allegory at work in the film. The Green Dragon is an invisible force in the picture and perfectly illustrates the nature of unseen magic, as well the “Green Equals Earth” trope the film makers are implying. This method also allows for hints of the Pagan Green Man, a figure of ancient nature that was based upon the Haddad and Nimrod mythos.
Robert Redford is the narrator of the story and is shown carving the esoteric compass into the wood engraving. The compass here is also allegory for the power of the 4 points, known as the elemental forces, which in the film are being brought together by magical dragons.
“Each of the elements is associated with traits and meanings, as well as with directions on the compass.” – Patti Wigington, Paganwiccan.about.com
Now rescued by the Dragon, Pete names this being Elliott, after the puppy in the book Pete carries with him. Elliot was the name of the fictional young boy who befriends an extra-terrestrial in the Steven Spielberg film E.T. : The Extra-Terrestrial. The name Elliot is synonymous with the Canaanite Baal structure crafted under the deity El – the supreme god of Canaan. The pattern of using El in place for God within the ancient Hebrew mindset became common practice, illustrated through the naming scheme of El as applied to Angels and important figures who would later walk with God, such as the Biblical prophet Elijah. The origin of all names that include ‘EL’ (as in Elohim) are of a very Biblical structure, indicative of supernatural or unseen forces at work (scholars assume the word El was meant to indicate ‘power’). Here the Green Dragon is perfectly illustrated as the ‘power’ and hidden strength of the boy. The meaning of the name Elliot is “I Walk With The Lord My God”.
Pete’s Dragon & Hex-Craft
At 6 minutes into the film a title is shown indicating six years have passed and the boy is now aged 11. Here again indicative of the structure of 6 and 11 utilized by the producers to show a connect between the deified EL – the magic dragon, or his numerology to the numbers 11 and 6. This method of number placing in film is known as hex-craft.
According to esoteric tradition, the numbers 6, 66, and 666 are what constitute a pathway for hex-craft or spiritual magic to be performed as a “charming” tool for both hexing and enchanting. Various adherents to the practices of magika (type of divining magic), such as found in mystery religions or cult-based witchcraft, utilize the number 66 during ritual number divining (channeling). Other groups such as the neo-Pagans or modern Freemasons use the number as a means for material gain – as seen in the occult use of Route 66.
The Mundane Public VS. The Initiated Upper Elite
One minute after the title screen shows that 6 years have passed, we are shown a group of six children who are informed that magic is not always seen, and never seen by those too ordinary to know how to look for the signs of its existence.
The general public, those ordinary individuals who choose to ignore esoteric or occultism, who are as well unknowing of the rites and magic being used and manipulated by the elite, are given such mocking and disparaging titles as ‘goyim’ and ‘sheep’, by those few in positions of power. The term ‘goyim’, oft used by Eurocentric Zionists, is a derogatory term which compares those unacquainted/outside of Jewish gnosis to ‘cattle’ – animals to be used up and slaughtered.
“Goyim were born to serve us, without that they have no place in the world…” – Ovadia Yosef
In the world of fantasy, such as found in the Harry Potter series, those individuals who have no powers of magic themselves are called ‘muggles.’ They are depicted as a mundane people existing without the knowledge of the spiritual world, being unable to ever see or hear the supernatural. The topic of ‘muggles’ in the world of fantasy literature/film is a blatant allegory for the views the ruling elite hold of the ordinary people.
Here the producers of Pete’s Dragon have illustrated for the viewer the distinction between the ability to see magic, as shown through the Robert Redford character, and the inability to see magic, as shown through the park ranger Grace Meacham, played by Bryce Dallas Howard.
Pete Vs The Bear
From here we are shown Pete roaring at a bear, while seemingly hunting a rabbit, that is until it is revealed that Pete is an ally to the animal. Pete represents the notions of animal/human balances, an idea of vegetarian transcendence, and is shown surviving all these years on a diet of wild mushrooms. Here the setting of the film is placed in the time frame of 1983. At this period in history the USA was witnessing increasing frictions with China and the Soviet Union. Many U.S. officials, including then president Ronald Reagan, viewed the world through an ideological stance of “us”, namely the US and allies, versus ‘them’, the so-called “red baddies”.
The image of the bear in political cartoons has always come to represent the country of Russia. Here the producers are creating a timely allegory that the USA – the boy, is a protector of the environment and the animal world, while the true strength or power belongs to the dragon. The dragon also symbolic of power, may as well represent secret society.
The Blue Ranger Vs The Red Lumber Jacks
In order to complete the pattern of Red Vs Blue, a trope so familiar to the occult, park ranger Grace enters the forest holding a blue spray can while in search of a hidden owl. Here the producers have indicated the common trope of owl symbolism to reflect the coming of a hidden murder, in which this case of “murder” would involve the tree being cut down as indicated by the presence of a red mark (likely placed by the villain in the picture Gavin – the RED baddie). Grace uses her blue spray can to wipe away the red mark of death, indicative of the occult use of water elements versus fire elements. It is later revealed that Grace has a boyfriend named Jack who drives a blue truck and often wears blue. His license plate reads W2R 8R4, which in esoteric terms is meant to be read as W2R = Water While 8R4 = 8 Gematria Pattern Of 444 & 888. Grace is meant to symbolise the water element or “HOLY Water” just as was the girl Grace in the film “Signs”, by M. Night Shyalaman. While Gavin is shown with a license plate number of M6N 6X1, meaning M6N = Man / 6×1 = 6, or in Gematria terms as 6 is the number of man and his fallen nature. This is a prime example of 66 hex-craft done through Disney films , which also included the animated film “Zootopia”.
