The Phoenicians started to use little symbols for sounds. Andrew Marr’s History of the World II, BBC 2012
Symbols are used by Masonic lodges, witch covens, Satanists, and alchemists to directly access parts of the brain which respond to strong shapes and colours ... The use of symbols to convey the desire or will of the magician is generally referred to as Sigil Magic. To make a magical sigil, you first write down your desire or spell. You then remove all vowels and all repeating consonant letters. You then rearrange the remaining letters into an easily remembered symbol. This symbol, or sigil, contains the original spell. Sigils are often found in company logos. Chris Everard, Illuminati II
Manly P Hall was a high-ranking Freemason who wrote The Secret Teachings of All Ages. He states that the radiation symbol is a Masonic sigil used in accepted rite freemasonry which represents the success of our combined plan for world domination. ibid.
The Maltese Cross is featured in many sigils. Sigils are magical emblems which are etched on to a crystal ball or a black mirror. And they are stared at by the magician until the face of a spirit appears. In voodoo rituals very similar sigils are etched into the ground ... And these too feature the Maltese Cross. Sigils are used to represent the names of spirits, demons and angels. Chris Everard, Spirit World II
To create a sex sigil in a cartoon the artist is required to start the artwork with a sex symbol. The Arrivals, 2008
Elizabeth I’s Rainbow Portrait: This one pulls you into a labyrinth of signs and symbols. Face of Britain by Simon Schama, BBC 2015
Science aims at constructing a world which shall be symbolic of the world of commonplace experience. It is not at all necessary that every individual symbol that is used should represent something in common experience or even something explicable in terms of common experience. Arthur Eddington, The Nature of the Physical World, 1928
Scientific truth should be presented in different forms, and should be regarded as equally scientific whether it appears in the robust form and the vivid colouring of a physical illustration, or in the tenuity and paleness of a symbolic expression. James Clerk Maxwell
Philosophy [nature] is written in that great book which ever is before our eyes – I mean the universe – but we cannot understand it if we do not first learn the language and grasp the symbols in which it is written. The book is written in mathematical language, and the symbols are triangles, circles and other geometrical figures, without whose help it is impossible to comprehend a single word of it; without which one wanders in vain through a dark labyrinth. Galileo Galilei
The entire world operates on symbols, words, terms, emblems, national coats of arms, heraldry, flags. Jordan Maxwell, lecture The Illuminati
Cult symbols and emblems and how they have been used in the ancient world is very important to understand, because the same symbols and emblems are being used today. Jordan Maxwell, recorded interview
The implications of the Rising Sun are horrendous ... Much of the symbolism goes back to the prehistoric and ancient world. I don’t believe there’s ever been a symbol used more frequently and more widely used ... It is also a very important symbol in the occult societies of freemasonry ... To symbolise that coming of an Age of Enlightenment that would be dominated by the different various societies. ibid.
The symbolism is primarily Egyptian today. ibid.
They [Nazis] used occult symbols. And the Bell was supposedly covered in occult symbols. Jerry Smith, author Roswell: The Nazi Connection
When [Major Marcel senior] he came back to the house he had a bunch of [Roswell] wreckage with him. He brought the wreckage into the house. Actually awakened my mother and myself out so we could view this because it was so unusual. It was about two o’clock in the morning. And spread it out so he could get some basic idea of what it looked like, what it was. We were all amazed by this debris that was there. Probably because we didn’t know what it was. It was just the unknown. This writing could be described as Egyptian-type hieroglyphics but not really. The symbols and I-beams were more of a geometric-type configuration in various designs. It had a purple-violet colour. Dr Jesse Marcel junior, televised interview
A metal beam like a small miniaturized I-beam and it had these purplish-violent symbols on the inside edge of it. (UFOs & Symbol) Dr Jesse Marcel junior
On page 302 the Air Force also came up with an explanation for Jesse Marcel’s mysterious symbols: they claimed it was Scotch tape with flowers on it donated by a toy company. The World’s Strangest UFO Stories: Roswell, 2005
Rendlesham Forest UFO: What made this case particularly unusual is that this was not vague lights in the sky – this was a landed metallic craft that some of the witnesses claimed they got so close to they could actually touch the side of it. One witness saw strange symbols on the hull which he likened to Egyptian hieroglyphs; he made a sketch of this in his police notebook, and took some photos though he was subsequently told they didn’t come out. The Ministry of Defence looked at this and the Defence Intelligence staff assessed radiation readings that had been taken at the landing site as being ‘significantly higher than background’. Nick Pope
Lights in the sky over Phoenix are not new. Carved into these mountain rocks are enigmatic symbols. UFO Hunters s2e6: Arizona Lights, History 2008
As an aid to realise perspective is of no importance – the realistic painters of Flanders got on very well without it. But as a symbol it means something, and as a symbol it passes into the decorative arts of early renaissance. Kenneth Clark, Civilisation 4/13: Man the Measure of All Things, BBC 1969
Symbols are nothing but the natural speech of drama. Tennessee Williams
We are symbols, and inhabit symbols. Ralph Waldo Emerson
Words are but symbols for the relations of things to one another and to us; nowhere do they touch upon absolute truth. Friedrich Nietzsche
I am intrigued with the shapes people choose as their symbols to create a language. There is within all forms a basic structure, an indication of the entire object with a minimum of lines that becomes a symbol. This is common to all languages, all people, all times. Keith Haring
No symbols where none intended. Samuel Beckett, Watt
However expressive, symbols can never be the things they stand for. Aldous Huxley, The Doors of Perception & Heaven and Hell
All religious expression is symbolism. Albert Pike
All things are symbols: the external shows
Of Nature have their image in the mind,
As flowers and fruits and falling of the leaves. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, The Harvest Moon
I wasn’t a sex symbol, I was a sex zombie. Veronica Lake
New Testament theology adds a new injustice, topped off by a new sadomasochism whose viciousness even the Old Testament barely exceeds. It is, when you think about it, remarkable that a religion should adopt an instrument of torture and execution as its sacred symbol, often worn around the neck. Richard Dawkins, The God Delusion p251
The Shining: I said to my friends that movie was about the genocide of the American Indians. Room 237, 2012
Why a German typewriter? … I began to see the number 42 appear in the film … You get the holocaust … Subliminal messages … The photograph of Stanley Kubrick in one frame airbrushed into the clouds … Those tourists dissolve into the suitcases … A movie about the past … It is the labyrinth … The Minotaur poster … He deviated into those exact questions: what was it like to make a deal with the US government? … He [Danny] stands up and he’s wearing the Apollo 11 sweater with the rocket taking off … Room 237 in the film represents the moon landing stage where he worked … ‘The site is supposed to be built on an Indian burial ground’ … 42 shows up in other places … They no longer exist … How the past impinges. ibid.

Your Apple computers and you have the bitten apple: of course that’s another Satanic symbol. ibid.
