Illuminati & Freemason symbolism in Transformers films
The Transformers storyline is the classic tale of good versus evil, with robotic-alien twists. The actual Transformers are capable of shape shifting from one form into another; drawing an analogy to the Illuminati reptilian shape shifters, who are also considered extraterrestrials. “More than meets the eye” indeed (that was a pun-reference to the ‘All Seeing Eye of Horus’ which will appear on movie poster one-sheets). I intend to show the various amounts of Illuminati-affiliated symbolism with this post; while making the bold claim that the Transformers films are a way of predictive programming to make us sensitive to ‘shape shifting aliens’ so that when they reveal themselves we will have the ‘appropriate’ response of open arms (and tie in some Freemasonry symbolism throughout).
The film line rejuvenated the 1984 toy line with its tales of transhumanism and subtle lusting for robotic-alien power. The films portray a more mechanized version of the Transformers and contain action sequences that portray the helplessness of the human race. This helplessness is only overcome by a few random civilian heroes (e.g. Sam Witwicky), because they are mostly sacks of meat that can’t do much to harm either side of the warring factions.
The brand who brought the toy line into fruition is Hasbro, who were the proprietors of such ‘80s classic toylines such as Star Wars, G.I. Joe, M.A.S.K., My Little Pony, Pound Puppies, and Cabbage Patch Kids. They were also creators of various occult-like board games such as Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering. Both of these games have long been tied to the occult and devil worship; and rightfully so. The original game featured demons and nude Succubi, and rumors of the immersive gameplay spilling over into reality. Multiple murders were pinned on this game due to its ‘possessive’ nature and graphic details. Of course, there are conflicting reports as to whether or not playing the game can have any effect on the mind, but that is status quo for the “Illuminati” who distract and confuse with the best of them. They push dark imagery and demonic symbolism and offer a game that allows you live it out and then claim it has no effect.
No effect at all??… I’m not sure I agree with that. I’ve played Call of Duty: Modern Warfare for a few hours at a time and had dreams of being in a combat environment, so on a personal level I refuse to believe it has no effect at all. It’s all part of this modern age of violence and obsession with death (how many shirts have you seen with skulls on them??). Anyhow; you get the point, Hasbro is evil, and therefore Transformers might be as well.
All of the films highlight the need for a unified front against the Decepticons, which is referred to as a ‘New World Order’ in the conspiracy theory world. The NWO conspiracy is the idea that we would concede our sovereignty and join together as one world power in fighting an alien race. It is depicted in other films as well (e.g. Independence Day). Another oddity to support this is when Ronald Reagan suggested this might be a decision we’d have to make in the future when addressing the United Nations:
“I think about how quickly our differences worldwide would vanish if we were facing an alien threat from outside this world. And I ask you, does not this threat already exist?”
Conspiracy theorist Bill Cooper suggested that he saw evidence that this was the plan in action while he was a Naval Intelligence officer, claiming that there were mixtures of actual UFO sightings and faked ones, in order to keep the public confused until the media could instill a built-in response through predictive programming in films such as these. What’s interesting to me is that the concept of religion isn’t addressed in Transformers for when we are exposed to these alien robots. The 1960 NASA Brookings Report study claimed that the religious people around the world wouldn’t be able to handle such a revelation:
“The positions of the major American religious denominations, the Christian sects, and the Eastern religions on the matter of extraterrestrial life need elucidation. Consider the following: ‘The Fundamentalist (and anti-science) sects are growing apace around the world . . . For them, the discovery of other life — rather than any other space product — would be electrifying. . . . some scattered studies need to be made both in their home centers and churches and their missions, in relation to attitudes about space activities and extraterrestrial life.’
The existence of the Brookings Report study on the response to extraterrestrial life is in and of itself somewhat of a conspiracy theory because people tend to think this means we’ve been visited and are aware of alien life (hence the study to see if the human race can handle it).
The movie poster one-sheets for the films feature various shots of Illuminati symbolism; mostly of the All Seeing Eye, as I’ll point out in the individual film discussion below…
The purpose of this first film is to introduce the characters and give us a reason why we would see Transformers on Earth. As the film reveals, there is an ‘Allspark’ cube that landed on Earth and its power can be used for good or bad. The Decepticons arrive in the hopes of the latter; while the Autobots seek to save the human race and prevent a universal takeover by the Decepticons. The ‘Allspark’ is a cube that represents the soul of a Transformer that makes them more than just programmed machines. This cube is symbolism for the Saturn Matrix of a false reality.
The concept of Saturn Worship is explained a bit further in detail in my book
Chapter 7- The Moon and Saturn Matrix:
Moon Matrix Theory, Virtual Reality Hypothesis, Quantum Physics, Illuminati Desires for a Golden Age, Saturn Obsessions, Saturn Symbolism & Theories
The background of Saturn worship goes back to 600 BC with Greek poet Hesiod’s ‘Works and Days’ where he discusses the various ages of man. One of the ages was referred to as the Golden Age. The Golden Age was referenced in several prominent ancient cultures, similar to how the cultures would adopt each other’s gods and rename them. The ancient Romans worshipped the god Saturnus, who was the god of agriculture and time, and his reign was known as the time of Golden Age of peace and harmony. The Greek god that was the same as Saturnus was Cronus, the youngest of the Titans. The Carthaginian god Ba’al (or Moloch) was the same god, and devoured children (similar to Cronus who ate children).
Why is the Allspark depicted as a black cube?…
Black Cube: The black cube is symbolic of Saturn because of occult beliefs in its symbolizing the three dimensional world we live in as a symbol for matter. One of the oddest things surrounding Saturn worship is the observance the NASA Voyager and Cassini missions made when they were taking photos of the poles of Saturn. There is an unexplained hexagon shaped vortex storm on the north pole of Saturn that you can see in the public domain. A hexagon is actually a flattened out cube when viewed at it three dimensionally, so I find it odd that the ancient occult practices somehow knew this and worshipped it before the photographs were taken.
Saturn is also linked via the cube to the symbol of the cross, which is actually an unfolded cube, which is a symbol of Christianity. The cross was also important to the occult obsessed Nazi party as the Iron Cross (which was adopted from an older Iron Cross tradition). The number of black cubes seen all over the world in statues, art, and the entertainment industry is also staggering. Cubes are prominently featured in film plots such as The Avengers, Transformers and Star Trek.
Also, the first Autobot to die is Jazz, who is questionably African-American with his urban slang, which brought up much conspiracy about a racial undertone of the move to kill off one of the more popular characters right off the bat.
When Megatron gets introduced as NBE-1, the leader of Sector 7 informs everyone that every piece of technology has been reverse engineered from this alien-robot since its discovery in the 1930’s. The Sector 7 group is shown to have been formed by seven members; as depicted in the pyramid formation (a subtle reference to the Illuminati with the pyramid shape that has the elite at the top and servants forming the base):
The Sector 7 is another name for the Majestic 12 (or ‘MJ-Twelve’), the secret committee formed in 1947 by President Truman to investigate UFO sightings and research the technology of the alien craft. Of course, this is one of the unproven conspiracy theories, but it wouldn’t be so farfetched to find that it is validated one day like Area 51 was.
Another piece of support for the Saturn-cube symbolism in the film would be the badge for Sector 7 which has a three dimensional cube in the center:
If you don’t believe that the film is about shape shifting aliens who have come to control us from the shadows; take a look at the final quote of the movie by Optimus Prime in which he subtlety uses a ‘Watchers’ reference (from the Book of Enoch):
”We live among its people now, hiding in plain sight but watching over them in secret”
Now I’d like to cover the many symbols embedded in the film that suggest it has Freemason connections. People claim Michael Bay is a Freemason; although I haven’t seen any solid proof of that. He had a dog named Mason a few years ago, but that’s a bit of a stretch. He does, however, have boat loads of Freemason symbolism in Transformers as well as in his other films like Bad Boys II:
So, let’s see what Transformers has in it…
…how about Shia LeBeouf’s character and his obsession with death and skulls (which doesn’t fit the character he is portraying):
The skull and bones image is a Freemason symbol used at the Yale secret society of ‘Skull and Bones’ and it symbolizes death.
There are various rumors as to what it truly means to the Freemasons; death if you tell the secrets, 666, or even magical spells. Either way, it’s here in the film littered all over the place. Here’s a shot of the troops in Qatar and they very obviously walk by a sign with the skull and bones and the number 33. The number 33 is important in Freemasonry because it corresponds to the highest degree one can attain while in the group. There are only 33 degrees and the biggest secrets are kept for those who make it to the top.
Shia LeBeouf (who has his own history with Illuminati symbolism in his music video) wears a jacket throughout the film with the same 33 logo on the back. It also makes a brief cameo in the second film (just because it’s sooooo important):
Here’s a subtle one in the background with the ‘322’ number. It’s purposefully written in there so don’t tell me it’s a coincidence (just like having the ’33’ pop up multiple times). The 322 is part of the Freemason stuff, and there are various rumors for why it’s important. Mostly people seem to think it’s tied to goddess worship and it corresponds to the year of the goddess Eulogia bestowing her knowledge to the secret group of Bonesmen. Also, people point out that Ryan Dunn from the show Jackass died on Route 322; claiming it had Freemasonry symbolism (although I think that’s stupid since 322 is a major road in PA, but I thought I’d toss that on there anyways, you make the call if you want to believe that one):
Take a close look at the Sector 7 badge; it appears to have a large ‘M’ on it (for ‘Mason’?…):
And finally, we have the importance of Washington D.C. in the film, which is a city built up by the Freemasons. You can see the occult symbols of the obelisk Washington monument and Captiol Hill.
This is also known as Capitoline Hill; the Roman occult location that was for the Temple of Jupiter based on the finding of a skull while digging. Hence the name Capitoline which comes from the Latin ‘Caput’ meaning “death.” Skulls leads us back into Freemasonry; again.
Here’s the Illuminati symbolism on the movie poster, we’ve got the All Seeing Eye watching the globe. The symbolism ties us back into what Optimus says in his quote about how these aliens are watching over all of us (whether we like it or not):
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
The sequel takes place with mostly the same characters, and this time features an MK ULTRA-like possession of Sam Witwicky’s brain. Sam sees symbols that the Decepticons seek to decipher in order to find this ‘Matrix of Leadership.’ The ‘Matrix of Leadership’ needs plugged into an alien machine (the ‘Sun Harvester’) in an Egyptian pyramid.
Of course, the symbolism shows us that the pyramids are of more importance than what we currently understand. Many believe there are secret powers hidden within the Pyramids of Giza, and that the Illuminati are the only ones who truly know what they are. Some say the pyramids are refueling stations for alien craft, while others say they are an energy device. The theories go on forever, but the symbolism for the pyramid is represented with a triangle; a magical symbol for ‘manifestation.’
The triangle represents the three dimensions of the material realm (and presumably the manipulation of mankind due to this false-reality) with its three sides. The magicians believe there is a mental, astral, and physical aspect that the triangle represents, and physical world must run through these three planes in order to manifest in our lives (you can read the details on the sacred-magick.com pdf). The two sides correlate the electricity and magnetism, with the bottom line tying them together (sort of like electromagnetic waves that propagate at 90 degree angles). The triangle is used by the magician to harness power or simply make contact with a being from another realm; which is what we see with the ‘Sun Harvester’ in Transformers.
Here’s what FreemasonInformation says about the triangle in a post for the film Paranormal Activity 3:
While, neither of the symbols are truly freemason symbols, the Magical Triangle comes out of a tradition of King Solomon, the wise king and one third Master Architect behind the construction of the great Temple constructed in his name to house the ark of the covenant.
Christian tradition holds the wise king was benign and kingly in status, but when you read deeper into the subtext of Judaism and Islam, as Lon Milo Duquette does in his book The Key to Solomon’s Key: Is This the Lost Symbol of Masonry?, we discover a king, prophet, and wizard, on the level of the great eastern Magi. Duquette writes “…he [Solomon] could talk with animals, fly through the air on a magical carpet, and cause others to fly through the air to him.” One other thing Solomon is thought to of done was summon evil spirits. The Triangle comes out of a work called The Lesser Key of Solomon the King or Clavicula Solominis Regis, a work originally translated by MacGregor Mathers who, in occult circles, was a well known Golden Dawn mage and Masonic devotee in the rebirth of magical spiritualism.
As the symbol goes the triangle with the circle, Duquette refers to is as the Magical Triangle within which Solomon commanded evil spirits. As it was used in ritual practice, it was a place on within which the magician inscribed on the ground to hold the demons he summoned. While it looks good in the movie on a wall, the symbols when used to summon “evil spirits” it is to be made 2 feet from a Magical Circle on the ground in evocations.
The Matrix of Leadership made its first appearance in the Transformers comic book as the ‘Creation Matrix’ that was a computer program inside of Optimus Prime’s mind, which is just like the Matrix film that features a virtual reality world we experience. This is a deep philosophical argument; proposed by Rene Descartes and his ‘Evil Genius’ hypothesis, which is still considered to this day with ideas like a holographic universe, or David Icke’s Moon Matrix theory.
Let’s take a look at some of the symbolism buried in the film…
We see that Megan Fox is painting the devil on her bike, perhaps telling us she is the Scarlet Woman from Aleister Crowley’s belief system of Thelema (aka the Whore of Babylon):
Her thumbs don’t look that bad…
Next you’ll notice that the film went with this NEST theme (NEST=Networked Elements: Supporters and Transformers) which supports the NWO push. Cooperating with each other, and even the aliens in this case. The symbol on the side of the Humvee shows an inverted black triangle; more magic:
Take a look at the Astronomy 101 blackboard, they have the planet Uranus after Neptune, when in reality it comes before Neptune. Remember the memorization trick for recalling the order of the planets from the Sun: My Very Educated Mother Just Sent Us Nine Pizzas. See, now you’re even learning “normal” shit on this website!
We also see that the inside of the triangle has a demonic looking bull with horns, which is symbolism the occult pushes for their true master; Moloch:
There’s more to the Moloch than just that one image. There is a Blu-Ray feature for Revenge of the Fallen that shows Unicron, the eater of planets. In the 80s cartoon film there was a voice over for Unicron done by Orson Welles who was known for voicing the War of the Worlds on the radio and causing a panic over alien invaders. Unicron was depicted with horns; analogous to the bull/stag god and more Moloch/Ba’al Illuminati symbolism (who would devour children instead of planets):
Do you see the resemblance to the deity represented by the bull god, Moloch (or Ba’al):
As the film gets about half way there is a meeting between Starscream and Megatron and they meet up on a rooftop that is a symbol of the All Seeing Eye:
We see that Sam Witwicky is a believer in the Orion Constellation Theory, popularized by Robert Bauval. I write about this in my book as well if you have more interest in it. You can also get a small dose of it on my post about Ghost Adventures’ Hellfire Caves and the Orion Constellation Theory.
Basically it’s the idea that the pyramids were built to correlate to the stars in Orion’s belt; which arguably means they were many thousands of years before the consensus of about 2500 BC.
You can also see more Ancient Aliens type beliefs in the film when Sam gets almost killed towards the end of the film. He goes to Heaven and the gods are actually aliens (the ‘Primes’ of the Autobots).
The film was also promoted through the Luxor casino in Las Vegas; again, with the pyramid and obelisk:
Here’s the poster for the film where you can see the pyramid and its importance to the story (and of course the apex is illuminated):
Transformers: Dark of the Moon
The Transformers franchise started to take a nose dive in popularity with this third film. The plot revolves around the Autobots’ ship crashing on Earth’s Moon in 1961, and how the US government sent the Apollo 11 mission to investigate. This is a reference to the conspiracy theory around the moon landing, and how it may have been faked. Almost everyone knows some of the pieces around the fake moon landing, even Mythbusters did an episode on it (although it seemed pretty heavily biased when they ridiculed everything; almost like they are disinformation agents?…). The most interesting and elaborate explanation for the filming of the moon landing is buried in symbolism for the Stanley Kubrick classic The Shining. I’ve got an entire post with over 40 images from the film in IlluminatiWatcher’s The Shining symbolic analysis.
The classic room number 237. In the novel the room number was 217, but rumor has it that Kubrick changed it to 237 so that people at the hotel wouldn’t be afraid to stay in 217 (I’m guessing there’s no room 237 in reality). Weidner says that the 237 corresponds to 237,000,000 miles that it takes to get from Earth to the Moon.
The tag says “Room No. 237,” which Weidner tells us could be rearranged to only two words; “Moon” and “Room.” Thus, Danny travels to the “Moon Room.”
There’s also symbolism with the moon in David Icke’s Moon Matrix theory which says that the reptilian shape shifters (the Illuminati) transmit signals to earth to lock us into a certain frequency and hijack our senses.
This third film was definitely the most action-packed; yet at the same time full of symbolism. Here’s some of what I saw…
First we see that astronauts pulling their covert mission to the moon and finding the crashed Ark:
As the first moon scene ends we see the camera focus in on the All Seeing Eye of the transformers that’s lying inside the Ark:
Sam is interviewing for jobs and the shot tosses in more cube symbolism (e.g. Saturn; see the first Transformers movie breakdown):
What is the occult poster on the wall (left side of the image)? It appears to show a crown of stars, or the crown of Semiramis?
There’s a whole slew of the color yellow, and in this scene where Sam in interviewing for one of the jobs there is a big to-do about someone using a red cup on the ‘yellow’ floor. The yellow is symbolism for betrayal and cowardice. The color theme shows up a lot in the film, just keep an eye out for it. I believe it’s a subtle message (although I’m not sure for what exactly; maybe Michael Bay was putting a jab in on Megan Fox or something?…).
We even hear the boss man (played by John Malcovich) say that “It’s a visual and therefore a visceral betrayal“, supporting this idea.
Another theory for the yellow is that the Jewish people were required to wear gold stars in Nazi dominated countries during WWII (gold stars also represent American soldiers who died in action in the USA).
There might be some kind of Semitic reason for this, especially since we see a Star of David pushed into one of the shots:
Here’s some predictive programming of the Aurora Batman Dark Knight shootings. We see a freeway scene and they intentionally make us see this Aurora sign, multiple times (of course this one is for Aurora, Illinois):
Again; not a coincidence:
We saw it in the Batman film as well:
The ancient obelisk/phallic symbol is put next to one of the pillars. There is an entire fight scene that takes place by the reflecting pool, which is always found near an obelisk to balance out the feminine/goddess power with the male/god power of the phallus:
Megatron destroys the Lincoln monument and takes a seat. The Lincoln monument is odd in that it features fasci on both sides of the chair:
We constantly talk about how bad a fascist state is, yet we have them on this memorial, and also in the Capitol Hill building. Here’s the fasci symbol:
Here it is everywhere else:
Things that make you go hmmm…
On the moon we see the portal open up, but it resembles the glass structures Richard Hoagland believes are up there:
Here’s the glass structures:
You can catch more on Richard Hoagland at his site EnterpriseMission.
Another Freemason skull in the background:
Here’s a UAV with a pyramid on it, and a pyramid inside of the eagle’s eye (and she’s doing the 666 hand gesture):
Shockwave is the horned god, Moloch, and he’s got the All Seeing Eye:
Here we see that some of the pillars are hidden inside of the Borobudur temple in Indonesia (as featured on Ancient Aliens; there you go Giorgio, “Aliens”):
And finally I’ll point out one overarching theme. This one is the installation of the warrior-princess programming that these films perpetuate. They show the youth that if you want to be a real man you better lace up your combat boots and save the damsel in distress. The guys are all outfitted and ready for war…
…while the princess is literally keeping up with them in heels:
Guess that’s just the way it goes.
Here’s one of the posters for the film that shows the Decepticon Shockwave with only one eye; the All Seeing Eye:
Transformers: Age of Extinction
As of this post, there is no plot description for this next film that releases in 2014, but the movie poster shows us the All Seeing Eye with the emphasis on one eye:
