Symbols, Icons, and Keylons

By Anna Von Reitz

Ever go to a baseball game and noticed the hand signals passing back and forth between the pitcher and the catcher?  And often, the other players as well?  How about football?  Seen those signals, too?  

Okay, so, have you gone to a courtroom and watched the attorneys passing signals back and forth among themselves and with the judge?   Same thing. 

And if you are alert, you have long seen the same use of hand signals going on in the media and among the politicians, too — for example, FDR’s famous “V” for “Victory”.  

But is it a “V” for “Victory” or is it a “V” for something else?   

It’s actually a very ancient hand signal of the followers of “the Horned God” — Baphomet. 

It takes discernment to know if someone is using it innocently to denote “Victory” in some struggle, or if they are an initiate in the Kingdom of Liars connecting to and asking for the support of other initiates. 

In the same way, a crucifix has a double meaning and discernment is necessary. 

A crucifix can be a constant reminder of what Jesus suffered  —-  a symbol calling us to repent our sins….  or… can be a gloating remembrance of how Baphomet “triumphed” over his body, mocked him, and inflicted cruelty and pain on one who was blameless. 

While a “V” for “Victory” is a temporary symbol that is here and gone like a flag signal, an “icon” — a symbol made physical — like the flag itself, is much more permanent. 

We are surrounded by such symbols that have acquired double meanings.  

Is it the Statue of Liberty?   Or an idol honoring a venal and foreign goddess named by various names: Semiramis, Ashtoreth, Astarte, Ashtar, Isis, Cybele, Sybil, and….. Columbia?  As in District of Columbia?  

The phenomenon of “Q” is an example of a countering symbol, raised against the Corporatists.   

The followers of Baphomet have always been Corporatists.  They change living bodies into dead bodies —- Corps.   Get it?  

That’s why they play games with legal terms like “natural person” in Probate Court, to mean “corpse”.  

The only power that Baphomet  (whatever you want to call the Devil) has, is the power to destroy, murder, deflower, and defame.  These people take life, but can’t give it back.  In that sense, they are thieves.  

And all their works are crimes, all based on lies and illusions and delusions of one kind or another. 

So it behooves us to see how these criminals do what they do on a larger scale, to observe how they get people focused on negative things, how they distract people from what is important in every situation, how they twist our emotions by feeding us bad information, and overall, how they impersonate what is living and seek to substitute what is dead.  

It also behooves us to seek the truth within ourselves, to face our struggle to recognize what is true and what is false, to discipline our imaginations and guard them against manipulation, and to be vigilant guardians of life — all life. 

What appears to be physical substance in this world is actually composed of the symbols, the keylons, which includes numbers and letters, that project and order our perceptions.  

Those perceptions become thoughts, the thoughts translate to emotions, and the emotions become actions. 

You perceive smoke coming from the edge of your jacket cuff.  You think: “My coat sleeve caught fire!”  So you are immediately alarmed and fearful of injury.  This prompts you to take quick action to put the fire out, either by smothering it or splashing it with water.  

Perception becomes thought, thought becomes emotion, emotion becomes action.  

At every step, you must be receiving and properly processing true information, or you wind up thinking wrong thoughts, feeling wrong emotions, or taking inappropriate action. 

What if what appears to be a smoking coat sleeve isn’t smoking?  What if the “smoke” is fog instead?  What if it isn’t coming from your coat sleeve?  

You see the problem.  It’s easy for these fraud artists to feed you bad information or set up illusions that you fall victim to. 

Like the illusion that the “Governor” of the “Commonwealth of Virginia” is The Governor of The State of Virginia, for example. 

You have to maintain clarity and be sharply observant, but this can be difficult to do, when you have spent a lifetime without such focus. 

Begin by trying to clear your mind like erasing a chalkboard. 

It’s extraordinarily difficult for most people to do and maintain for more than a second or two at first, but try.  As you keep trying to “quiet your mind” you will be able to stay in this empty state of awareness for longer periods of time, and use it as a place both to rest and to observe without judgement.  

You will discover that you can be aware without words or numbers — simply aware and taking in the view.  And in this restful state of awareness, you will know what is true, because you can bypass the jumbled up true and false symbols, icons, and keylons the same way that water bypasses a maze of rocks.

Celebrities as symbols

by Jon Rappoport

October 25, 2019

I recently found a 2013 article I wrote about celebrities and symbols. As we veer into the election season, I’m reposting it as a reminder about how symbols work, how they are made to stand in for real people. You can supply your own examples from 2019…

Let’s start here: A museum. A show of photographs of celebrities. If you didn’t know who they were, if you hadn’t been “prepped,” most of the photos would barely register. You’d yawn and walk past them.

But because you have separate knowledge, the photos mean something. They refer to a whole host of material and background on famous people.

“Oh. That’s Jay Leno eating ice cream.”

Again, subtract that material and background and the photos are meaningless.

“That’s some guy eating ice cream. So what?”

The photos are symbols, in the sense that they refer, they point to something that isn’t there.

The photos have power because YOU make the jump from symbol to meaning. You’re doing it.

“Oh, look at that photo. That’s Jay. Tonight Show. Tells jokes. He and Letterman compete for ratings. Jay replaced Johnny Carson.”

Then there are your opinions and feelings. More background.

“Jay’s not that funny. They should have stayed with Conan. Television, what a waste of time. A distraction for the masses.”

You make the simple jump from an image to what it means.

And all these photos have something in common. They refer to someone who is famous.

You could say, “Wait a minute. Let’s make a distinction here. The photos don’t refer. The photos don’t refer to anything. They’re just sitting there, inside frames, hanging on the wall.”

And that’s true. You do the referring. You connect the photo to meaning, to background.

But this is equally true of all symbols. A photo of an American flag doesn’t really refer, either. It just sits there. You make the connection to 50 states, the Constitution, the country, etc. The photo doesn’t step down from the wall and tap you on the shoulder and talk to you about itself.

People INVEST power in a photo of John Lennon sitting on a porch smoking a cigarette. However, people believe the photo itself HAS power.

Now, we’re talking about the trick involving symbols. They’re basically empty. You fill in the emptiness.

All this becomes more interesting when you realize there are PR people and propagandists working around the clock to make you impart particular meaning to symbols. They’re not satisfied to have you supply your own meaning. No.

For example, the last thing they want is you supplying your own references to photos of Hillary Clinton. They want you to think: distinguished leader, much experience, first woman president, above party politics, brilliant mind, great sympathy for the plight of the less fortunate, etc.

They want to make the symbol of Hillary as specific as possible.

This is really why the speeches of politicians are so empty. Their handlers don’t want actual information to get in the way of how the symbol is being crafted. PR people, if they could, would have a presidential candidate come up to a microphone, stand there, smile, and say nothing.

They, the PR handlers, are already shaping the symbolic meaning of the image of the candidate. That’s all they care about. That’s the difference between winning and losing.

Just as television shows are really the breaks between commercials, an election campaign is just a break between symbol-manipulations for the masses.

A scholar could write a compelling and important history of the human race based entirely on how symbols are given meanings by propagandists.

Rulers and other leaders are celebrities. Their symbolic value is established and shaped. The whole idea is to get followers to invest meaning A,B,C in the image of the celeb, rather than meaning E,F,G.

In this case, what does meaning mean? Thoughts and feelings. Strong feelings.

“Bush will restore the republic.” Feel, feel, feel.

“Obama will bring unity to all peoples.” Feel, feel, feel.

But THEY (the propagandists) aren’t doing it to YOU in a vacuum. You’re consenting to the ploy. You’re injecting desired meaning. You’re not a helpless victim.

Here’s the kicker. If you know you’re injecting meaning, you know you’re creating something. So why not open that door wide?

Why not create with power? Why not create what you most profoundly want to?

Bottom line: everybody is an artist. So why not do something with that fact, instead of playing the symbol game?

This isn’t about withdrawing to a theoretically safe distance where you can refrain from injecting symbols with meaning. It’s about expressing your own energy and power in the world.

A final word about the amusing, wild, and wooly world of “channeling.” This is a perfect example of symbolism. The lecturer is purportedly obtaining all his information and wisdom from some entity in another dimension. The entity is the celebrity.

The audience is prepped to understand this relationship between the lecturer and the entity. So now, when the lecturer (medium) speaks, everything he says automatically has greater and higher meaning.

The symbolic reference to the entity is supplied by whom? The audience. They inject the “super-meaning.”

What would happen if the lecturer dispensed the same information, minus the prior assertion that he was getting it from a higher source? His audience would shrink to minimal size. People would walk out of the hall.

They would have no reason to stay. They aren’t being asked to inject that added dimension to the lecturer’s words. It’s a dud.

No gloss. No glitz. No celebrity. No deal.

And now, a final, final word. Who is the greatest celebrity in the universe?


I don’t care whether you believe in God or don’t believe in God. I don’t care whether you believe in Him on Sundays or every day of the week.

But the symbols of God, all the symbols that exist—these are the work of organized religions. They put out and promote and flash those symbols, for one reason: they want you to connect to God through their network and mesh of symbols.

Otherwise, they’d be out of business.

They don’t want you to connect to God through your own private faith. That would be a disaster for them. They have to have all those symbols. They have to get you to inject those symbols with their meaning. Because, then, you’re part of their club. You belong. You’re in their group.

So…do symbols have power? Is this serious business?

Is the Pope Catholic?
