Illuminated Pyramids and Obelisks Across the World

Our recent look at the EU meeting in Siberia got me thinking about Masonic architecture. You know, obelisks, pyramids and benben stones showing up in unexpected places, particularly modern cities. But I wasn't just looking for any old pyramid or obelisk, I was looking specifically for illuminated pyramids. This is just the result of a brief search. Double-click images to enlarge for detail.

Atlantis, Georgia has an interesting kind of step pyramid benben (far left) a more standard benben to the right of it and yet another eight-sided -or octagonal benben to the right. Don't know if the Atlantis Hawks basketball team or the Atlantis Falcons football team tie into any of this symbolism.

Boston, home of America's first Masonic lodge, has an interesting truncated pyramid roof and a glowing light above it. If you're thinking "all seeing eye," I got your back. The Monolith next to it is the Hancock Tower. Note: The Atlantis Braves were originally the Boston Braves.

Chicago has an illuminated benben obelisk.

As does Cleveland, largest city in the 17th state of the US.

Des Moines is no slouch in the illuminated benben department.

Here's a surprise- Dubai has an illuminated-benben obelisk. Or maybe that isn't a surprise.

Neither is Frankfurt, the financial capital of Germany.

By that token, neither should Kowloon's Asian twist on the step pyramid and heavenly beam.

Reader Mark alerted me to this illuminated pyramid at London's Canary Wharf.

Minneapolis has a green illuminated capstone.

What's more, the ever-reliable Yahoo! News put up a beauty shot of it on its front page while I was preparing this article. How about that for Synchronicity?

Montreal has a obelisk without an illuminated capstone. What's that about?

Of course, we all know about the illuminated pyramid at the Louvre in Paris from The Da Vinci Code.

New York's got all sorts of interesting architecture, including the illuminated-benben obelisk on the left there.
As does Philly, the new City of the Sun.

Heading for the West Coast we see another truncated pyramid (this one eight-sided) and floating all seeing eye, similar to Boston's.

San Francisco is famous for its pyramid, which is actually more of an obelisk. Appropriately ambiguous for a city with so many gender-bending citizens.


Seattle has its own space age conflation of the obelisk/dome motif. Kind of like the Masonic lodge that George Jetson would belong to. There's an interesting green benben stone behind it, but the Space Needle is interesting for another reason...

...the Heavenly Beam it shoots out from time to time.

Shanghai goes for the obelisk/dome motif with an unbelievably phallic looking building in the center there.

Toronto also does the whole illuminated obelisk/dome thing, both of which reflect on Lake Ontario. Quite an interesting array of examples of this type of symbolism. What could it possibly all mean? Are they trying to tell us something?

Maybe the people who create these buildings aren't trying to tell us anything. Maybe they're only talking to each other. Maybe they don't care what you think about it at all.

There's a thought, huh?

  1. I feel you on that last comment, man. Seems to me that they speak to each other in codes and symbolism; like the 11, 33, 27, 17, 108, 72, 144 (et cetera) type jargon everywhere in politics and technology. Kinda weird, but once you start seeing it, you can't help but to start connecting *their* dots right along with them. I think we're sort of crypto-mystic sleuths of the esoteric future holdings for humanity at large.

    It's fun knowing a little more than the rat race does.

    ps: you know that the Space Needle recently installed some spooky (possibly subliminal brainwave entraining) Holosonics-brand hypersonic sound panels all over the place? So you can "hear sound when nobody else does!" Whoa. Microwaves in my head? Nah. Screw that. Check out my third blog down (i think) about the "microwave auditory effect" and all that THEY are doing to enforce it. It's coming to a Wal-Mart near you, in fact.

  2. The San Francisco pyramid interests me - It was built for Occidental Life Insurance Co. by William Pereira, who seems to be one chosen to a great deal of corporate buildings.
    The comapany's called TRANSAMERICA now.
    Apparently the JFK funeral procession stopped outside one if its offices and a picture was taken [ acc. to Downard in the KingKill piece]

    Anyhow Occidental Insurance and pyramids key in with Osiris , who is linked strongly with the West

  3. http://thinkprogress.org/2008/07/05/bin-laden-144-oil/

    That story about Osama Bin Laden pushing the idea of $144/barrell oil 10 years ago was all over the news over the July 4th weekend. I have absolutely no idea why, but it is pretty reasonable to suggest their is a reason these numbers keep showing up in the media. I mean, why $144 oil? Why not $145or $150. If someone is going to prognosticate commodity prices 10 years out into the future, it seems odd to settle on a number like 144, as opposed to 150 or 145. It would seem the 144 number is injected on purpose, perhaps in such a manner as to make it obvious that it was chosen as such, since it seems so out of place as a predicted level of oil prices that would be spell doom for the U.S. economy. 144 seems so arbitrary(if one is unaware of the occult significance of the 144 number) that it is a hint that its placement is deliberate.

  4. Nice collection. George Jetson would never have been allowed up to the top level of the Space Needle, he being a lowly "porch brethren". His boss, Mr. Spacely, parties at the top. The Needle is more of an obelisk, with the infamously ugly 'Experience Music Project' (built by the world's richest Trekkie, Paul Allen) playing the part of the dome (I suspect).

    Matthew Delooze gives my favorite explanation for these monuments: Spirit milking machines that beam human worship energy into the Reptilian dimension.

  5. Allen's a Trekkie? That explains a lot...

  6. Yea, his venture capital firm is called Vulcan Ventures.

  7. Also sitting at the base of the Space Needle is the Sci Fi Museum and Hall of Fame that contains Kirks's command chair, the B9 robot from Lost in Space and the dome from Silent Running among other artifacts.

  8. Cleveland also has the rock & roll hall of fame, which is a giant pyramid.

  9. So-
    I see you've been visiting the folks...
    You featured my home town of Atlanta, er, Atlantis there at the top. That key building you highlighted has an even bigger brother, the IBM tower, just a few blocks north. It too features a stepped pyramid, topped off with a golden obelisk, of all things. As for the team mascots, Falcons, Hawks, etc. Consider that Atlanta is called the City that Rose from the Ashes. General Sherman burned it to the ground during the civil war. So Atlanta's official seal features a mighty Phoenix bird, complete with nest of Flames and the Latin epithet 'Resurgens'. There's even a giant Iron Phoenix bird sculpture out front of the Federal Reserve building there. You could go On and On with this stuff in Atlanta. Glad for the the shout-out, just the same! BTW, I agree with Michael about Delooze- I think he really hits it on the head. And yeah, these architects are having a big, gaudy, private conversation with each other. I think what they're saying mostly, in a sort of childish taunt is " My giant,glowing Masonically inspired concrete phallus is bigger than yours. nya,nya!"

  10. If anything this global architecture demonstrates that the culture in which we live is ideologically dominated at the very top by a cult-like sect of self-appointed kakistocrats. It seems like they're trying to apply the lessons learned from their experience with the tower of Babel by dispersing their efforts as opposed to concentrating them in one central location.

    In essence it looks like spiritual guerilla warfare against monotheism; just like the resistance cells in Iraq have a decentralized, overlapping structure embedded into the populace, so too do the obelisk and pyramid builders (polytheists)have an overlapping and deliberately decentralized movement embedded into global intellectual culture.

  11. You might find it doesn't convey anything, & is either based purely on architectural legacy and / or fashionable-references-to, or some odd form of superstition. I'm sure you must know how it feels to be compelled to have to do something, or do it in a certain way; just going on some things you mentioned here Chris.

    This, is great:

    "Matthew Delooze gives my favorite explanation for these monuments: Spirit milking machines that beam human worship energy into the Reptilian dimension."

    Does anyone know why it is lizard-ish though? I can't figure that part out (but I know what they are refering to, and they're correct) because it doesn't relate at all to actual reptiles or animals at all.
    Animals are good inherently and have an entirely different 'vibe' from the things that have made this the interdimensional prison it is - that of course is also responsible (for enabling it) for how many people mistreat animals and nature in the first place, why that reverence lacks in anyone.

    There's the R-complex part of the brain, but everyone has that. And not everyone is one of them. And it does refer to the same old part of the brain, that animal-reptiles have, which in humans is mostly to do with the autonomic nervous system - automatic processes control, like breathing, heartbeat. Very plant-like - reptiles are closer to plants than the later branches of animals, they sort of blend-in with them and the landscape more too. They have a stillness that is much more like plant life.
    (Osiris was depicted as being green I think because he was associated with crops, and plants. A bit like Jesus and the vine.)

    I also don't think the dimensional prison type of entities are anything to do with dinosaurs, or dragons. There's definitely lots of things about dinosaurs that the usual sources of news would rather you didn't know, and of course dragons crop up in 'legend' all over the planet. They're definitely more to do with the same prison system that wants you to think dragons never existed, and dinosaurs only did x amount of years ago etc and there were no humanoids or anything like that around at the same time.
    So how the hell come though - they do have that reptilian looking thing going on? Did some mad scientist splice them with animals ages ago, then they took over using some dimensional-trapping machinery that was lying around?

  12. Stay tuned,Zuppie. You'll see the underlying pattern behind it all.

  14. Hi

    The tower at Canary Wharf has always caught my eye especially while I worked in the city where I saw many interesting esoteric symbols. The top capstone also goes from light to black. I joke with friends that it's an indicator to how much evil is being generated by the city that day :)
