In the modern vernacular the use of the term ‘Illuminati symbolism’ encompasses the entire spectrum of esoteric and occult ideals which are displayed as a commonly recurring device (hidden narrative), or motif which originated within the secretive mystery schools or secret society.
Numbers and the concepts of space and time are of universal interest for a number of groups, and the theory of time in relation to the subject of Cyclical Time VS Linear Time has become a major plot device in numerous popular films, such as ‘Arrival’ or ‘Edge of Time’.
This study will focus of Linear Time VS Cyclical Time. Please view the following list of items which are the most commonly placed elements of an esoteric nature. Highlighted are the numerical patterns which display most often via ‘occult programming’
1.) The All Seeing Eye (Eye of Udjt)
2.) Checkered Pattern / Checkered Floor
3.) The OK Hand Sign
4.) The Peace Hand Sign / Roman Numeral V
5.) As Above So Below (The Maze)
6.) The Numbers 6 / 66 / 666 (Hex-Craft)
7.) The Goat
8.) The Owl
9.) The Numbers 23 / 32 / 322

14.) The Hexagram
15.) The Skull
16.) The Red Vs Blue Trope

18.) The Number 18, 88
Symbolism of the esoteric variety is commonly placed in contemporary works of popular culture, most notably films/programs with the highest amount of visibility, and intended to be understood by a small group of individuals who are capable of interpreting the hidden narrative.
Conception Of “Linear Time”
Linear time is an irreversible line of direction, seen sequentially, as a series of events that contain: a beginning, a present, and an end. Visually represented in the form of time lines, plot points form an a-z course, or sometimes sections, in which each point on that line represents a period of time from a beginning to a present and an end. Sir Isaac Newton believed that humans are only capable of perceiving relative time, which is a measurement of perceivable objects in motion (like the Moon or Sun).
“Absolute space, in its own nature, without regard to anything external, remains always similar and immovable. Relative space is some movable dimension or measure of the absolute spaces; which our senses determine by its position to bodies: and which is vulgarly taken for immovable space … Absolute motion is the translation of a body from one absolute place into another: and relative motion, the translation from one relative place into another …”— Isaac Newton
The concept of linear time is one in which the movements of all present events were brought into existence via the events that proceeded it, the outcome of which is irreversible. Linear time is an on going and infinite event. Occurrences are the results of causes. For example the extinction of the Dodo bird in 1662, was as a direct result of the problem of human involvement in the disappearance of an entire species. The extinction of the Dodo bird is an irreversible cause, which in the case of linear time is permanent.
DODO BIRDS EXTINCT = 1110
In the case of thermodynamics, a perfectly reversible process is impossible. Entropy, or arrow of time, requires a particular direction of time within the system of thermodynamics. The daily experience of time irreversibility is a physical absolute in which linear time mechanics do not allow for the reversal of events that preceded them. For example an eaten apple does not rematerialize from nothing to be eaten again. This concept is also stated as the Second Law of Thermodynamics, this includes the fact that ice cubes melt in hot coffee rather than assembling themselves out of the coffee.
Christian Conception of Time
According to the Christian conception of time, God exists outside of the limitations of human observed time and is eternal. Since time is unbounded, it is of logical necessity infinite, while God is eternal. Humans can observe and appreciate all the points on a time-line, for example, in a single instance, just as God knows the content of all knowledge – past, present, and future – in a simultaneous fashion.
“One thing is certain, the Scriptures make a distinction between the “temporal” and the “eternal.” Paul says that the things that are seen are “temporal” but the things not seen are “eternal” (2 Cor. 4:18). In describing God, the psalmist declares: “. . . from everlasting to everlasting, you are God . . .” (Psa. 90:2). Yet, in the same context, of man it is said: “The days of our years are threescore years and ten . . .” (v. 10). “Time” clearly does not relate to God and man in the same way.” – Wayne Jackson, Christian Courier
A Time Is Eternal = 906
Eternity is endless, but time is eternal with God, and measured by men with a “beginning” and an “end.” In English Gematria the phrase ‘A Time is Eternal’ equals 906.
“…since God coexists with the world and in the world there is change, surely there is a case for saying that God continues to exist for an endless time, rather than that he is timeless. In general that which remains the same while other things change is not said to be outside time, but to continue through time.” – R. G. Swinburne, The Timelessness of God
Time Happens Linear = 1110
“Most of Western society has a linear view of history, a view founded on the Judeo-Christian perspective. Prior to this Christian description of history, classical thought supported a cyclical view in which historical events were repeated over and over by consecutive societies. Thus, the directional view of history given by Christians created a unique conception of the movement of humanity through time.” – All About World View

Time Is Real An Linear = 1110
Isaiah 40:28 Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his under- standing no one can fathom.
“God,” declares the prophet Isaiah, “is the high and lofty One who inhabits eternity” (Is. 57.15). But being a prophet and not a philosopher, Isaiah didn’t pause to reflect upon the nature of divine eternity. Minimally, to be eternal means to be without beginning and end. To say that God is eternal means minimally that he never came into being and will never go out of being. To exist eternally is to exist permanently.” – Reasonable Faith
A Life An Temporal = 888
Humans live a temporal life, lasting only briefly when compared to the great expanse of an endless span of time known as infinity. Temporal comes from the Latin word temporalis which means “of time” and is usually applied to words relating to the duration of man, such in the case of temporal living. Below is an article that relates to temporal life as seen through the eyes of the Masonic Ingalls family of “Little House On The Prairie” fame.
“This evanescence of temporal life was brought home to me several years ago in an unexpectedly powerful way as I was reading Laura Ingalls Wilder’s book Little House in the Big Woods to our small children, Charity and John. Now you wouldn’t expect this book to be a source of philosophical insight, but as I came to the final, closing paragraphs of this book, I was absolutely stunned by what I read. (It didn’t have this impact upon my children, but it hit me like a hammer!) This is what she wrote:
The long winter evenings of firelight and music had come again . . . . Pa’s strong, sweet voice was softly singing:
‘Shall auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Shall auld acquaintance be forgot,
And the days of auld lang syne?
And the days of auld lang syne, my friend,
And the days of auld lang syne,
Shall auld acquaintance be forgot,
And the days of auld lang syne?’
When the fiddle had stopped singing Laura called out softly, ‘What are days of auld lang syne, Pa?’
‘They are the days of a long time ago, Laura,’ Pa said. ‘Go to sleep, now.’
But Laura lay awake a little while, listening to Pa’s fiddle softly playing and to the lonely sound of the wind in the Big Woods. She looked at Pa sitting on the bench by the hearth, the firelight gleaming on his brown hair and beard and glistening on the honey-brown fiddle. She looked at Ma, gently rocking and knitting.
She thought to herself, ‘This is now.’
She was glad that the cosy house, and Pa and Ma and the firelight and the music, were now. They could not be forgotten, she thought, because now is now. It can never be a long time ago.
What makes this passage so poignant, of course, is that now that time that Laura Ingalls thought was so real, was “now” for her, is long ago. It’s gone—gone forever! Ma and Pa are gone. The American frontier is gone. Laura Ingalls Wilder herself is gone. Those years that she called “the happy, golden days” are gone, gone forever, never to be reclaimed. Time has a savage way of gnawing away at existence, making our claim upon existence tenuous and fleeting. And surely this is incompatible with the life of a most perfect being, such as God is. A perfect being must have his life all at once, complete, never passing away or yet to come. In other words, the life of a perfect being must be a timeless existence in which he exists in an eternal now that never passes away.” – Reasonablefaith.org
The “Little House” novel mentioned above, was created by Laura Ingalls Wilder, an American author whose stories were based on her childhood in the northern Midwest during the 1870s-1880s. The books are classified as ‘fiction’, and include a number of esoteric changes to reflect the intent of the Harper & Brothers publishing group whose members belonged to Masonic, or secret society groups. The book series was released in the pattern of the esoteric number 8, to represent time and completion. In esoteric terms the number 8 represents the completion, as well as the looping succession of infinity. In reality Laura Ingalls Wilder would have been between the age of 3 and 4 when the events of ‘Little House on The Prairie’ are told, however her age was changed to the hex-craft (create out of sixes) pattern of 6 to reflect the esoteric needs of her Masonic publisher. Esoteric numbering clues are present throughout the series and indicate a familiarity with the numbering scheme commonly found in works of the occult. Wilder ties the theme of time to the song “Auld Lang Syne“, a traditional Scots poem written by Robert Burns in 1788, which is sung at the conclusion of New Year gatherings around the English speaking world. The number 88 is reflective of the identification of time and infinity and is included in numerous discussions in regards to film, as well as secret society. Also notice how Wilder displays only 8 lines of the song in her recounting of her ‘here and now’. Laura Ingalls father was a Free Mason, as was her husband Almanzo Wilder. The novel ‘Farmer Boy’, published in the year 1933, recounts events of Wilder’s childhood starting when he was eight years old, while the stories of Laura in ‘Little House’ start at age six. In the novel ‘The Long Winter’ Almanzo Wilder risks his life to save the pioneers of De Smet from starvation during the Winter of 1881, supposedly hauling 60 bushels of wheat through the snow.
In the Winter 1963 issue of ‘THE ROYAL ARCH MASON’ magazine, several Masonic numbering details are provided by author Bird H. Dolby. Dolby states that the number of Free Masons required to work on Eton College in 1448 was around 60, while 47 years later the need for 60 working Free Masons remained, the wages were given at 6 pennies a day. Notice the Freemasonic 66?
“In 1495 the statute is in English, and the word is “Freemason.” He and the rough-mason are now valued at the same wage of six pennies a day. In 1513 the master-mason who contracted to finish King’s College Chapel undertook to “keep continually 60 ‘Freemasons’ working upon the same works.” – Royal Arch Mason, Bird H. Dolby
CURSE = 66 ( In Simple Gematria)
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. 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 original number of the famous Route was the number 60, until a delegation from Kentucky objected to that number. It was later changed to the number 66 by 32 degree Freemason Cyrus Avery (Father of Route 66) who prior had placed the number 66 on the design for a highway shield. In 1926 meetings between Cyrus Avery, John Marshall Page, and B. H. Piepmeier were held at various venues in Springfield, Missouri, during the week of the Rotary International celebration.

Sumerian 60 & Time
An hour has 60 minutes and a minute has 60 seconds because the Sumerians used a base 60 counting system. The number pattern of inducing sixes is today called ‘hex-craft’, and was first introduced via ancient ‘Bawru’, home to Black tribes of ancient Summer living in Babylon, who claimed to have been taught complex mathematics from a group of antediluvian beings called Apkallu (Abgal). Sexagesimal (base 60) is the numerical system of 60. English Gematria utilizes a base of 6. The numerical designation of the god Shamash was also the number 60.
“The tablet, known as Plimpton 322, was discovered in the early 1900s in southern Iraq and has long been of interest to scholars. It contains 60 numbers organized into 15 rows and four columns inscribed on a piece of clay about 5 inches wide and 3.5 inches tall. It eventually entered the collection of George Arthur Plimpton, an American publisher, who later donated his collection to Columbia University.” – Kenneth Chang, New York Times
Various ancient texts refer to giants (Nephilim), such as Goliath having six fingers on each hand – for a total of 12 digits.
1 Chronicles 20:6 There was also a battle at Gath, where there was a very tall man with six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot—for a total of 24 digits—who was a descendant of the Rephaim.
SIX FINGER = 666
The number 6 system of Gematria and the complex 60 based trigonometry of the Sumerians was used as the guiding mathematics in the creation of the ziggurat and later the Egyptian pyramids. The method of pyramid building and construction was taught to ancient man via the Apkallu, according to the Gilgamesh (King Nimrod) account.
“….inspect its foundation terrace, and examine well the brickwork; see if it is not of burnt bricks; and did not the seven wise men (Apkallu) lay these foundations?” – Gilgamesh
Life & Death In Egypt (Kemet) – ‘THE BOOK OF DEAD” = 666
When an ancient Egyptian died his soul would enter the hall of judgment, this according to the ‘Book Of The Dead’, an ancient Egyptian funerary text. From the underworld (duat) the soul of the dead would be met by several gods, during which the deceased would pour out his heart by reciting 42 negative confessions, or sinful acts which the deceased states he did not commit while alive. Here the number 42 represents the afterlife and the balance of a circular eternity (or everlasting justice), where 4 multiplied by 2 equals 8 – thus the looping number eight is equated with the concept of forever and the all important occult number 42.
THE NUMER 42 & CYCLICAL TIME
The numerical pattern of 8 is oft linked to a concept known as ‘Perpetual Return’, or also as ‘Eternal Recurrence’, a belief that states the universe and all that exists within it are recurring forces, which along with time, have happened an infinite number of sets and will continue to ‘repeat forever’ in a cyclical time pattern. This is why author Douglas Adams chose the number 42 in “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to The Galaxy”, a number which is the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything. Douglas Adams likely meant this number as a ‘joke’, however Adams was also quite familiar with the occult as well as religious theories. The concept of life repeating endlessly is shown in films such as “Groundhog Day”, “Arrival”, “Edge of Tomorrow”, and in the Demonic-Alien possession film K-Pax.
In the Egyptian hall of judgment , a departed soul meets with the gods to plead his case of 42 negative confessions. During this confession the deceased would have his red heart weighed against the blue ostrich feather of the goddess Ma’at on a scale of justice. If his heart were too heavy (filled with inequity and sin) then his soul would be fed to a demon and his spirit would cease to exist. If his red heart equals exactly the weight of the blue feather, the gods would allow him safe passage into the afterlife.
