Welcome back to IlluminatiWatcher.com! As you may already know, I’ve been given the honor of providing a monthly update to the world of Illuminati symbolism on Samantha Scarlette and Eddie Barella’s BLACKOUT radio show.
On the May 12th episode I spoke about Donald Trump, Pepe the Frog and Meme Magick, but I wanted to take a deeper look at it in this analysis so we can all understand the full implications of what is going on here…
Check out the video for this analysis on the IlluminatiWatcher1 YouTube channel:
Pepe and Kek
Pepe is the name for the illustrated frog character that people on 4chan would utilize in memes, which eventually went viral and became a worldwide phenomenon.
In 2015, some 4chan users decided to take their beloved meme back from the “normies” (a term for mainstream folks that don’t regularly stay on 4chan; if you don’t understand what this means, it’s you). They were upset that Pepe was being used by “sell outs” in the masses like Katy Perry so they started depicting him with nazi regalia and skinhead symbolism.
Around the same time the “nazi-Pepe” was taking off, Pepe also evolved into Trump artwork which was embraced by some members of the alt-right, nationalists, conservatives, et. al. meanwhile reviled by others who were confused and thought Pepe was indeed a racist symbol (due to its simultaneous broadcast of nazi symbolism).
This connection was likely caused by the 4chan forum of politically incorrectness (/Pol/), which undoubtedly appreciated Trump’s lack of political acumen, tact, or general disrespect for other human beings.
During these same time periods, 4chan users started a cult-like following of Pepe that also utilized the associated phrase of “kek” as a play on “lol” (apparently taken from World of Warcraft slang). This laid over into the ideas of ancient Egyptian god “Kek”; a frog deity.
The Egyptian deity of Kek is known as the god of primordial darkness, or chaos. This brings in many concepts of the Illuminati that we’ll explore in this article- from chaos magick to “order out of chaos” and even the Trump “chaos candidate.”
*Note that alt-right members also use the term “cuck” or “kuk” to refer to sell-out conservatives who aren’t hard liners. “Kuk” is also a name for that same Egyptian deity, but another curious connection here is that “cuck”/”Kuk” actually comes from the term “cuckold”- referring to a woman being taken from her man and having sex with another man (who is typically stronger and more dominating). It derives itself from the practice of stags who surrender their female mates when they are beaten by a stronger male stag. The term of this is called “wearing the horns”; quite similar to the symbolism of Moloch and the horned god.
At this point, Pepe was being worshipped for his ability to influence reality (in terms of ritual magick it’s causing real change in accordance with ones will). This concept of Pepe influencing reality has its roots in a practice 4chan users have of looking for the coveted “dubs,” “trips,” etc. when posting their comment in the message boards. (*The posts being made by 4chan users gets assigned a sequential number and the users like to get the last few serialized numbers to match- a matching pair is ‘dubs’, a matching sequence of three digits is ‘trips’, etc.).
It’s considered lucky to “get” these dubs/trips, and when a user provided a post with the words: “Trump will win” and the number landed on 77777777 it became a legend…
So it goes that the the Egyptian KEK conflates with Pepe and is somehow showing his ability to influence reality through the repeating dubs and trips– something that is believed to been part of the entire creation myth with the idea of repeating values. This is why it is claimed by numerologists that when one sees repeating numbers (like 11:11 on the clock) it symbolizes that one is in sync with their True Will (an Aleister Crowley concept).
Combine all of those things along with the unexpected fact that Donald Trump won the election, and you have the idea that Pepe the Frog is a deity that one can worship in order to make changes in the world.
Furthermore, since the election of 2016 we’ve seen more strange influences on reality that Pepe has, like white supremacist Richard Spencer getting punched in the face on TV whilst wearing a Pepe the Frog button and explaining its purpose (it almost seems that it was a hidden truth that someone didn’t want to go public…).
Hillary Clinton went as far as to say that Trump wanted to use the Pepe symbol to rally his fanbase of white supremacists on her website (*note that she did it one day after 9/11; the day she fainted in public- something Pepe-ites believed they helped create):
More curiosities surfaced when we found that a group named P.E.P.E. created an album in 1986 called Shadilay on which they depict a frog conducting magic through a wand into a spiral– the symbol for chaos and the evolution of man:
Many are quick to also point out that P.E.P.E. stands for Point Emerging Probably Entering; related to concepts of the probability of obtaining dubs or trips on 4chan!
Another band in 2010 named Las Pepas released a song called The Frog Pepe– in 2010!
Pepe the Frog has had its time in the limelight, but the question remains of how powerful a symbol, meme, or sigil can be. Some claim that Donald Trump made it into the White House based on the harnessing of this exact, esoteric knowledge, but can that be true?…
Meme Magick & Predictive Programming
Famed atheist Richard Dawkins coined the phrase “meme” from the word “memetics.” He said it is the behavioral equivalent of a gene- or from his 1976 definition in The Selfish Gene:
“We need a name for the new replicator, a noun that conveys the idea of a unit of cultural transmission, or a unit of imitation. ‘Mimeme’ comes from a suitable Greek root, but I want a monosyllable that sounds a bit like ‘gene’. I hope my classicist friends will forgive me if I abbreviate mimeme to meme. If it is any consolation, it could alternatively be thought of as being related to ‘memory’, or to the French word même. It should be pronounced to rhyme with ‘cream’.”
Given Dawkins’ background as an evolutionary biologist, the term “meme” is appropriate since we all witness the “evolution” of a meme as it takes on various forms. Wired.com interviewed Dawkins about how this biological term morphed into the realm of the Internet and he supported its interpretation:
The meaning is not that far away from the original. It’s anything that goes viral. In the original introduction to the word meme in the last chapter of The Selfish Gene, I did actually use the metaphor of a virus. So when anybody talks about something going viral on the internet, that is exactly what a meme is and it looks as though the word has been appropriated for a subset of that.
So now that we see the cultural impact and infectious nature of memes, let’s progress into the second topic- Meme Magic.
In this article I’ll be referencing it as Meme “Magick” with a ‘k’ (since Aleister Crowley defined magick with a ‘k’ as a differentiation from stage magic with a ‘c’). We’re referring to the idea that reality can be shaped through the mind. More specifically- the will and intent of a magician or groups of magicians.
In this analogy, the magicians are Internet users and the meme is the projection of the will, or at least the symbol of it.
The idea of meme magick plays into concepts of a collective unconscious brought forth from Carl Jung, or Sigmund Freud’s archaic remnants. The idea that there is an intangible sort of energy (or even entity) that exists in a realm we can all access and feel but can’t quite put our five senses in touch with.
As a side note- this is much like the recent phenomenon of the Mandela Effect where we mostly feel like we recall one version of history/reality; yet it isn’t quite so.
One might ask: “So, what’s the harm in meme magick?”
Well, much like the other examinations into the world of the occult and magick; it depends. Some people use magick for self enhancement while others use it wreak havoc. One could argue that the installment of the “Chaos Candidate” Donald Trump as president is an example.
Another horrific example is the case of the Slenderman. This was an Internet meme that led two girls to stab a friend of theirs 19 times in an attempt to sacrifice her to the Slenderman (a meme character with the Illuminati Mark of the Beast).
Another idea that plays into this same line of thinking is that of predictive programming. It’s well known that there were several symbols, messages, and themes that led up to the events of 9/11, the Aurora Batman shootings, and the Sandy Hook shootings.
So it seems there could be power of causing change in the world, according to the will of those that seek it. The practice itself shouldn’t be banned- but we should at least become aware of its existence and the fact that some people will use it for nefarious purposes…
As I mentioned earlier, Kek is the Egyptian deity of chaos. We can explore more of this idea when we look at the original ceremonial magician- Aleister Crowley.
The chaos that Crowley subscribed to in his Gnostic Mass Creed is a reference to the Abyss. To introduce chaos is to beg for the opening of the Abyss and swallowing up all of humanity and its societal rules.
What’s curious here is that during the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton got connected into Aleister Crowley when it was revealed through hacked emails that her campaign chairman John Podesta was involved in various “strange” activities…
For example, Podesta is apparently very interested in UFO disclosure (an occult idea since Crowley channeled the extraterrestrial of Lam, Kenneth Grant’s Typhonian OTO seek to contact alien entities, etc.).
He is also tied into performance artist Marina Abramovic because his brother invited him to attend one of her “Spirit Cooking” events in which they consume blood or semen in the name of art. This is the same concept as Crowley’s “Cakes of Light” in his Gnostic Mass. It’s all about the power of charging a sigil with the will of the practitioner.
How curious is it that in 2016 the “Chaos” candidate was voted in, meanwhile we see magick practices that seek to project the internet magicians’ wills into the universe and destroy the norms of society? Did they inadvertently open up the gates to the Abyss?…
Connecting the Dots: Magick, Occultism, Illuminati, & Numerology
When you consider that Aleister Crowley wrote a book called Liber OZ or Liber 77 we can argue that he was interested in the numerological aspects of the number 7. This book uses the word “OZ” since “Z” is actually two 7’s (thus creating “dubs”). The 7th digit is coveted as a god number since it’s the letter “G” which stands for the grand creator of the Freemason compass and square:
Inside of Crowley’s Liber 77 we see the trips of 666:
Was Crowley interested in the power of numerology? You bet he was. The passage of Liber 77 shows that man is to be god- the magician that creates reality through his own thoughts.
The current age (the Aeon of Horus as Crowley would call it) is a time of magical expression. The fact that 4chan users are projecting meme magick through dubs, trips, numerology, symbolism, etc. only supports this idea.
Robert Anton Wilson wrote the book The Illuminatus! Trilogy: The Eye in the Pyramid in which he made quite a revealing comment:
Since almost everything has been tried in human history, find out what hasn’t been tried (at least not on a large scale)- and that will be the condition to which the Illuminati are trying to move the rest of mankind.
Capitalism had been tried. Communism had been tried. Even Henry’s George’s Single Tax has been tried, in Australia. Fascism, feudalism, and mysticism has been tried. Anarchism has never been tried.
Bill Cooper once described anarchism as a system of extreme, far-right wing government. This system is flawed in that it believes in no control or limits over man whatsoever. This system wrongfully assumes that man can be in complete control with no laws or repercussions but the truth is that man is flawed, and some of them will become drunk with greed and stomp on the rights of others.
(*The true path forward is a balance of right and left wing attitudes; allowing both parties to struggle towards their false utopias).
Although Robert Anton Wilson’s book is a fictional tale, it falls in line with the concept of the Illuminati’s “Evolution of Consciousness.” They feel that it is their duty to steer humanity down a certain path at any cost. Even more curious is that Wilson’s book follows similar ideas to the 4chan dubs and trips with its “Law of Fives” (the belief that all things happen in fives) and the 23 Enigma. This 23 Enigma is associated with the belief that it is satisfactory to the goddess of discordianism and chaos: Eris.
In a somewhat ironic turn of events, magickal powers were also used to combat Trump and the will of his followers when Lana Del Rey and others promoted a witchcraft binding spell against him!
Here we are in some kind of circular reasoning. The connections are as follows:
- Donald Trump- the “Chaos Candidate”
- Pepe’s meme magick and the sigil to chaos
- Crowley’s Magick practices and opening up the chaos of the Abyss in this new Aeon of Horus (*as well as the opposing magick forces of the witchcraft binding ritual)
- The Illuminati Evolution of Consciousness: pushing humanity towards chaos and anarchism
- Numerology of the 23 Enigma and channeling energy to the goddess of Chaos: Eris
UPDATE: The “Covfefe” Conspiracy
I can’t make this stuff up. It appears that due to that infamous tweet Trump sent out that ended in ‘covfefe’ there is now yet another connection to Pepe. The claim is that googling “27232626” gives a search result of a green toad (*which I verified as true!). *Big ups to Ryan for letting me know about this.
The Anti-Defamation League catalogued Pepe as a hate symbol- yet they even tell you it depends upon the context (which begs the question of why they even gave it this attention??):
However, because so many Pepe the Frog memes are not bigoted in nature, it is important to examine use of the meme only in context. The mere fact of posting a Pepe meme does not mean that someone is racist or white supremacist. However, if the meme itself is racist or anti-Semitic in nature, or if it appears in a context containing bigoted or offensive language or symbols, then it may have been used for hateful purposes.
There is also a strange idea of connecting the “Illuminati” symbols with those of the nazis. For example- the 666 hand is now being branded as the “White Power” hand, while Pepe is now a frog of hate.
The truth is that people who obsess over the Pepe memes don’t actually like Trump- they just like being in the same tribe (mostly). It’s a generational thing to perpetuate these memes. The Internet is not a place for those that are so literal or serious about things. To this culture of Internet users and meme-aholics, the Internet was designed to literally be f*cking with people.
If this sounds confusing- just understand that this new world is one of chaos, or discordianism. It’s the world long-envisioned by Disney’s tales of non-conformity, prescribed by social-norm destroying tales such as Alice in Wonderland. Some memes and ideas that have floated into the Internet are intended to cause disruption and chaos- such as the Ebola conspiracy to claim that white people wanted to spread this disease to other races, and arguably other “fake news” stories.
The problem isn’t so much that free speech is being used for nefarious purposes, but rather that its viewers are confused about what they’re looking at and taking the Internet far too literally.
The Internet is a world created from imaginations and seems to be perpetuating illusions; while many people on it seek to confuse the masses who have taken it as a tool for information. Anybody is able to create a website and say practically anything they want– how much should we trust it?…
A “meme” is simply a “memonic” and it is the same concept as that of the symbol. A focus of energy into the collective unconscious or subconscious. Magick is the focus of the mind, Law of Attraction, whatever you want to call it. They use Pepe as the hyper sigil- much like the followers of Genesis P Orridge’s Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth (TOPY) movement. In fact, they both utilize similar teachings if you link the Discordianism ideas with the deconstruction of social norms (which was one of TOPY’s major focuses).
TOPY had several stations to which people would focus magick energy through sigils (there were stations with names like “TOPY CHAOS” and “TOPY STATION 23”).
Both of these examples show the modern age push for chaos magick and pursuing changes to the societal structure. Right or wrong is up to you to decide…
