Why Z and V. Why symbols rule the world today

Why Z and V. Why symbols rule the world today

Signs from nowhere?

Confucius said:Signs and symbols rule the world, not word and law". So is it or not? First, let's take into account that in the alphabet, each letter is essentially a symbol. And it is hardly worth once again deciphering the legendary az, beeches, lead, verb, good ...

Our money is banknotes! They really do rule the world. By the way, back in the spring of 2007, according to the polled by VTsIOM, money rules the world. The share of those who think so is 54%. But the opinion that love rules the world was shared by only 11%.

By the way, the symbol of love - the heart - is understandable in any language. But there are also signs of the Zodiac and numbers, which are signs of numbers. Recently, much attention has been paid to Masonic symbols: the pyramid and the all-seeing eye. Recently, CBO symbols have appeared: Z and V. We will talk about these symbols below.

But why do symbols rule the world? The answer is simple: they operate on a subconscious level.

“Words and symbols are as much related to the world to reality as a map is to the territory it represents. We live on a perceived "map" that is never reality itself."

- wrote the American psychologist Carl Rogers at the beginning of the last century.

Rogers actively used symbols in psychotherapy. And Freud called the symbol and the universal image of a dream. The group of psychologist Polyakov defined a symbol as a sensually tangible phenomenon that makes personal meanings clear and/or generates qualitatively new meanings of consciousness.

Now let's move from theory to practice.

Skull and Bones

From an interview with Boris Grebenshchikov:

“You performed today in front of a skull and crossbones in the background of the stage. What is it connected with?
— I explain. Let's go back to the original value of this symbol. Not everyone probably noticed, but you can see this symbol in any church, at the base of a large cross - this is the skull of Adam. Under the same sign and symbol, the Templars went into battle, then the pirates “slammed” this sign from them.

As for the black flag with a skull and crossbones, or "Jolly Roger", it was first used in 1703 by the pirate John Quelch. In general, the image of the skull and bones was an integral element of the deities responsible for death and the afterlife.

In the Middle Ages, the skull and crossbones also personified the sentence - memento mori - remember death, and often the skull and bones are used as a warning sign of danger.

In Shakespeare, Hamlet holds in his hand a skull that belongs to his deceased friend. He looks at the skull and delivers the famous monologue:To be or not to be? That is the question».

Rose and Cross

The esoteric symbol of the Rose and Cross (fr. Rose-Croix) is part of the symbolism of the Rosicrucian orders.

Everywhere - trouble and loss,
What lies ahead for you?
Set up your shaggy sail,
Mark your strong armor
The sign of the cross on the chest!
A. Blok "Rose and Cross"

Traditionally, the Rose is understood as the human soul, just as beautiful and complex, but the Cross has more complex interpretations. The cross is also the four elements, that is, earth, water, fire and air, and the four times: past, present, future and what has never been, but could be.

There is an interpretation, and that the Cross is a symbol of Chaos, because it is directed in different directions, and the Rose is the soul, which thus unites the Universe. You can also imagine this symbol as a model of the Universe, that is, the Cross is the width, height, longitude and time, and the Rose, respectively, is the soul that lives in this Universe. There is also a completely gloomy interpretation that the Cross is the embodiment of Death, and the Rose is life.

What interpretation to choose, everyone decides for himself, since in symbolism there is no unambiguous and simple answer. Symbols are not enough to understand, they must be felt. Also note that the Cross is one of the most ancient symbols. It is found in cuneiform inscriptions and chronicles of the ancient Egyptians, Assyrians, Etruscans, Greeks, North American Indians and, finally, Christians.

Cross, crescent and star of David

In Christianity, traditionally, the cross is the main symbol and object of religious veneration. In theology, it is considered as a symbol indicating the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

According to contemporaries, Constantine the Great, while still a pagan, called on the help of the God of Christians, defeated the enemy and conquered Rome. The symbol of victory was the cross - a sign that appeared to the emperor in a vision.

Around 325 AD, Empress Helena, mother of Constantine the Great, went to Jerusalem in search of the Cross of the Lord. Elena managed to find the cross of Christ among the ruins of the pagan temple and erect it for general veneration. The acquisition and exaltation of the cross have been celebrated by Christians on September 27 for 17 centuries in the series of the most important so-called twelfth holidays.

Christians revere the cross as a symbol of Christ's victory over evil and death, as a symbol of hope for eternal life. And the symbol of Islam is the crescent. Although the symbol itself is older than Islam. Already in ancient Greece, he was associated with purity and crowned the head of the goddess Artemis.

As for the first Muslims, they preferred to do without symbols - after all, neither the Koran nor the Sunnah says anything about them. According to legend, in 1299, Osman, the ruler of a principality in Asia Minor, saw in a dream a crescent moon that stretched from one end of the earth to the other. Taking this as a good omen, the bey made the crescent moon the symbol of the dynasty.

The descendants of Osman created a huge state and became not only the greatest rulers in the Muslim world, but also its spiritual leaders, caliphs. The crescent became associated with Islam. Today, the crescent moon adorns the flags of many Muslim states. But not everyone. For example, Iranian Shiites, longtime enemies of Turkey, consider the crescent to be paganism.

The six-pointed star or "shield of David" (magendavid) is the official Jewish symbol. Archaeologists have found six-pointed stars in Minoan Crete, and on the island of Aegina, and among the Etruscans, and in Pompeii. The first Jew known to us to use this sign was a certain Yehoshua ben Asayahu, who lived in Sidon in the XNUMXth century BC. e. His seal with a six-pointed star has come down to us.

But the texts explaining the meaning of the star have not been preserved. In the Middle Ages, the so-called amulet of the “Seven Seals” was widespread, including, among other things, a drawing of a six-pointed star. Collectively, these seals were called the seals of Solomon.

But the star of David became a symbol of the entire Jewish community only in the XNUMXth century, when Emperor Charles IV granted Prague Jews the privilege of having their own flag. The first flag has not survived, but a copy of it is still in the Prague synagogue.

Masons and their symbols

«I believe in the existence of a secret world government”, - said 45% of the participants in the survey conducted by VTsIOM in 2014. The respondents confirmed that, in their opinion, a certain organization or group of persons controls the actions of the authorities of many states and influences world politics.

Many are not only convinced of this, but are also able to name those who are part of the organization. And this is no coincidence. It is well known that Benjamin Franklin, the mastermind behind American democracy, was also an eminent Freemason, Grand Master of Philadelphia and Pennsylvania. And the first stone of the Capitol was laid by the first American president George Washington during a Masonic ceremony, and the president himself was dressed in a ritual apron and held a ritual building spade in his hands.

Many French revolutionaries were Freemasons. Freemasons were also Voltaire, the Marquis de Condorcet, Mirabeau, Georges Danton, the Duke of Orleans and Hébert. Louis Philippe I, leader of the liberal aristocracy, was Grand Master of the Grand Orient of France during the French Revolution.

According to a number of researchers, the French Revolution could not have happened without Freemasonry. By the way, there were also many Freemasons among the Russian Decembrists. So, Pestel, Ryleev and Muravyov-Apostol, or three of the five executed Decembrists, were Freemasons. But among the accusers of the Decembrists there were no less Freemasons: Benckendorff, Borovkov and Speransky were also members of the Masonic lodges.

“The pyramid is the main symbol representing the mysteries of ancient civilizations. Majestic in its simplicity, divine in its proportions.

The word pyramid itself comes from the Greek "pyramis", etymologically associated with "feast" - "fire", denotes a symbolic representation of the One Divine Flame, the life of all creatures.

Even the name itself consists of symbols. So, on an ancient Egyptian fresco, the word "pyramid" is inscribed with four symbols: Pi - energy coming to Earth from space (the value is expressed as a number 3,14); Ra is the energy of the Sun, which is transmitted to Mi; Mi - Earth; and everything worked out, bad is dumped into Yes - hell.

Such an interpretation leads to the conclusion that the pyramid is a “tool” with the help of which the great harmony of everything on Earth and in the Universe is maintained. It is believed that the Freemasons borrowed the symbol of the pyramid from Christianity, where the eye is the all-seeing eye of providence.

But this symbol was found even before the Christians, it was known in Egypt as the "Eye of Horus" (Horus, Ra). The All-Seeing Eye or One-Eyed sign is a favorite sign in the occult. This sign is everywhere: in music videos, on magazine covers, on movie posters, in advertising, etc.

Philosopher Carl Jung defined the eye as a classic "archetypal symbol" - an image that is embedded in the "collective unconscious" of humanity. The eyes are the most important symbolic sense organ. In almost all cultures, the symbol of the eye is associated with such spiritual concepts as divinity (the Eye of Providence), spiritual illumination (the third eye), or magic (the evil eye).

In a battle with Seth, Horus lost one eye. The Eye of Horus is a powerful, ancient Egyptian symbol. In Norse mythology, Odin, the father of the gods, was depicted as an old man with one eye. Since the symbol of the eye is associated with the Sun, the esoteric eye has a special quality: it is "all-seeing". The "All-Seeing Eye" is associated with the opening of the third eye to achieve spiritual insight.

The one-eyed sign made by celebrities is just the opposite: when you hide one eye, you become half blind to the truth. By hiding one eye, celebrities are symbolically "sacrificing" a vital part of their being for temporary material gain. And since the eyes are “windows to the soul”, this gesture symbolizes the partial or complete loss of the soul.

Why Z, why V, and why “there” are demolishing monuments

I will not write here again about the symbols of the state - this is a separate topic, especially since on February 24, 2022, two letters of the Latin alphabet - Z and V - became our new "cultural genes". Moreover, initially these letters "only" marked the equipment of the Russian troops participating in exercises in Russia and Belarus.

About "only" now in general, few people remember. But initially, on the allied military equipment, one side was designated Z, which should mean west, and the other - V, that is, east. Nothing more, but...

When they saw them - these Z and V on television, almost everyone immediately realized that this is the difference between "ours" and the Nazis, who mark themselves with swastikas, ridges, runes, and indeed all kinds of hell. And soon Z and V began to draw with St. George ribbons. Against which the ideologists're coming out for several years waged a fierce war.

The same fierce as now against the monuments. Today, as you know, both Pushkin and Empress Catherine the Great have already fallen under the distribution. Consider again Confucius. This is what he said:Signs and symbols rule the world". Monuments are such symbols.

And after all, even the word itself means "memory" - the memory of the people about some important event. When monuments are taken down, they try to kill the memory. A person without memory, a person who does not remember kinship is a convenient individual for manipulation. That is why a wave of demolition of monuments to Russian soldiers - the winners of fascism - swept through many countries.

There is no monument - it can be argued that there was no Nazism in Europe, or that Nazism was defeated by the United States and Britain, or even Germany itself. Why not? The people will not remember anything in two or three generations. BUT history, as you know, rewrite winners! Even the winners in the war with monuments.
