On September 9th Lady Gaga did a rendition of her single, Applause on Good Morning America, while simultaneously playing homage to The Wizard of Oz (see the Illuminati symbolism for the music video HERE). This seems appropriate since there is such a devotion to this film, and several theorists have claimed that it tells a darker story than what unfolds on the screen. There are several different theories on the “real” meaning behind the film, but one of the most interesting is the one presented about the author of the story, L. Frank Baum. He was a member of the Theosophy Society, which is tied to occult beliefs.
This was taken directly from Theosophical.org:
Such facts about Baum’s life are widely known. Whatis not so well known, however, is Baum’s interest in theosophy. Michael PatrickHearn, one of the best of Baum’s biographers, has made the most extensive, andvirtually the only, acknowledgment of that interest:
His son Frank admitted the author’s interest in Theosophy, but also reported that the elder Baum could not accept all its teachings. He firmly believed in reincarnation; he had faith in the immortality of the soul and believed that he and his wife had been together in many past states and would be together in future reincarnations, but he did not accept the possibility of the transmigration of souls from human beings to animals or vice versa, as in Hinduism. He was in agreement with the Theosophical belief that man on Earth was only one step on a great ladder that passed through many states of consciousness, through many universes, to a final state of Enlightenment. He did believe in Karma, that whatever good or evil one does in his lifetime returns to him as reward or punishment in future reincarnations…. He believed that all the great religious teachers of history had found their inspiration from the same source, a common Creator. [72-73]
Although he did not join the Theosophical Society for some years, Baum seems to have believed in the central Theosophical concepts.It is not clear which Theosophical teachings Baum “could not accept”; possibly that reservation means only that Baum did not consider every idea that had been advanced by individual Theosophists to be Theosophical–a reservation that most of us would still want to make. Baum’s belief in the basic ideas of Theosophy has thus been recognized, even though it has not been widely publicized. What has not hitherto been known, however, is that Baum became a member of the Theosophical Society, as did his wife, Maud, and his mother-in-law, Matilda Gage.
This society was based on a philosophy presented by Helena Blavatsky, who is sort of infamous for being the one who Adolf Hitler used as motivation for his racial and occult beliefs. He was known to keep her book called The Secret Doctrine close by his side.
If you watched GMA; you saw Gaga do up the single in the likeness of The Wizard of Oz (implying Theosophical connections) and gave us a shot of the one all seeing eye of Horus:
