The constant and deliberate reinforcement of occult symbols in the media has the double effect of increasing their impact and also flaunting the controllers’ intent before their unwitting victims. But none of this is entirely secret, and it’s a feature of the new occultism that the signs are visible to those who can interpret them. Conspiracy watchers such as the Pseudo Occult Media blog have become obsessive followers of celebrity news, deconstructing music videos, fashion photos and movies to reveal hidden Illuminati symbols.
Most of this symbolism isn’t obvious to outsiders. Traditional pentagrams and pyramids do occasionally appear, but colours, shapes, corpor ate logos and other motifs are just as promin ent and powerful. Even photographic lighting techniques can carry a message: for example, a face in shadow, which emphasises the duality and splitting of dark and light personality elements. Similarly, a monarch butterfly symbol on clothes, graphics or tattoos reinforces the MK-ULTRA MONARCH programme.
Devotees of occult celebrity-spotting argue that not only are celebrities programmed and brainwashed, they’re also cloned and genetically engineered to manifest a pleasing combination of good looks. Illuminati science is decades ahead of our own, so their scientists can create genetic celebrities to order, blessed with a perfect eye-catching combination of sexual charisma and physical attractiveness.
Where conventional fans try to keep up with the relationships and lifestyle fads of their idols, occult-spotters look for evidence of failing programming. The ritual of celebrity rehab is taken as a sure sign that conditioning is breaking down, and reinforcement urgently needed. If the situation is left unattended to, then a famous name might start acting irrationally, perhaps even leading to a public event that reveals their abuse. The ultimate success for spotters would be a tell-all public confess ion – but this never happens.
Instead, most celebrities are successfully re-conditioned and “Stepforded”. Just like the Stepford Wives in the book and movies of the same name, Stepforded celebrities acquire conventional family values and become pliably robotic. Unlike the movies, this process isn’t limited to women. Any individual who can’t be reprogrammed can always be replaced by a more obedient clone, or sacrificed in public with a faked suicide or assassination.
This may raise a question or two in the minds of sceptics. There’s no evidence that cloning is possible, never mind likely. And sceptics might also wonder how it’s possible to tell the difference between the fashions and access ories available in any clothing store and official Illuminati-approved mind-control apparel. It doesn’t take an expert knowledge of fashion to see that many of the claimed symbols and images are common to the point of being mundane. Butterfly images and leopard-print fabrics are widespread enough to be clichés in their own right. So how can these be images of mind-control?
The secret seems to be that what celebrit ies wear is proof of their mind-control, and ordinary women – and sometimes men – copy them to reinforce their own slave status. Sporting a butterfly tattoo or a leopard-print miniskirt might seem like harmless fun, but in fact it shows a willingness to conform and to support the Illuminati agenda of pædophilia and programmed mental destruction. Mind-controlled celebrities are dressed deliberately by minders to display these images, both to reinforce the conditioning of the celebrities themselves, and to symbolise the existence of their conditioning to the rest of us.
For non-believers, this new occult conspiracy theory sounds like paranoid delusion, but conclusively disproving the beliefs of Icke and Delooze turns out to be harder than it might seem, because historical reality is at least as strange as some of the stories being told about it.
The MK-ULTRA programme certainly existed. Documents prove that for nearly two decades the CIA experimented with hypnosis, hallucinogens and other drugs and a pro cess called “psychic driving”. Invented by Dr Ewen Cameron, who went on to become the first chairman of the World Psychiatric Assoc iation, psychic driving used audiotape loops combined with drugs to ‘suggest’ behavioural changes. Cameron eventually developed a more intensive technique called de-patterning, which added electro-convulsive therapy and insulin coma to the noxious mix of psychiatric abuse. Cameron’s interest was in treating schizophrenia; but he experimented freely, with CIA funding, on individuals with relatively minor psychological problems, including mild depression and anxiety.
Cameron’s grisly research and other parts of the MK-ULTRA programme are a matter of historical record, but in 1973 CIA Director Richard M Helms ordered all MK-ULTRA files destroyed. What’s known about MK-ULTRA is known almost by accident, as a cache of documents, most of which were financial rather than operational, survived the cull because they were kept in a separate location.
Critics of mind-control lore state cate gorically that there is no evidence of a programme called MONARCH. But when most of the primary sources are no longer available, it becomes impossible to be sure which techniques were used and which weren’t. The MK-ULTRA research seems to have been distinguished by a significant lack of interest in medical or psychiatric ethics. When a professional psychiatrist fries the brains of patients with voltages 30 times higher than those used in conventional ECT, and does this without their consent, it’s not unreasonable to ask just where MK-ULTRA experimenters were willing to draw the line between ethical and unethical behaviour.
More recently, stories of systematic torture and abuse in military prisons have forced the current US administration to appoint a special prosecutor. At the same time, former US officials have admitted that terror threat levels were deliberately manipulated for political reasons. So, from one point of view, it’s clear that the promot ion of fear and abuse have sometimes been supported at government level. And if you believe Delooze, torture has an occult purpose too. The aim of torture isn’t to acquire intelligence, but to debase its victims, create terror, and, most of all, to focus public attention on the threat of irrational and all-consuming abuse.
The fashion and media worlds are similarly unwholesome. Rumours of sexual favours, not always voluntary, are common in modell ing, acting and fashion photography. There’s also no doubt that these are inherently risky professions. Creative media can boast a long list of famous names – most recently Michael Jackson and David Carra dine – who were either murdered or committed suicide, often in bizarre and questionably convincing ways.
But how much of the historical record is conventional decadence and dysfunction, and how much is evidence of organised conspiracy? Conspiracy theories can only flourish when facts are either absent or deliberately ignored. Narrative logic always reflects public hopes and fears, and at the moment the public has plenty to feel fearful of. In the same way that conventional Satanism and the occult were the unnameable night terrors of previous generations, modern anxieties live both in and behind the media. Celebrities are fascinating because they’re envied and need to be brought down from their pedestals; but they also stand in for our idealised image of how life should be, and our fears of how it really is.
And so it should come as no surprise that creative reinterpretations of media influence now abound. During the Bush years, paranoid reality became stranger than fict ion. But even before then, the traditional Bohemian role of celebrity was becoming redundant. Sex, drugs, and the occasional high profile police bust have become formul aic waypoints on the path to notoriety, and the only people still shocked by them are likely to be elderly or unusually religious. The rest of the population has moved on, and many people are now wilder in private (and sometimes in public) than the subversive stars of 40 years ago ever were. Morals, as well as becoming laxer, have also become more nakedly exploitative.
So perhaps the biggest clue to the new paranoia is the extent to which distrust of the authorities and the media is endemic. Supposed authority figures such as bankers and politicians have proven themselves to be corrupt at best, and psychotic at worst. It’s not hard to see how movie imagery – from interdimensional fear-eating lizards to robotic spouses and secret societies – can be assembled into a consistent narrative of top-down malevolence and media control. In this view, sacrificial celebrities aren’t special people, or even special victims – they’re just like the rest of us.

10 SECRET MIND-CONTROL SYMBOLS IN MUSIC VIDEOS AND MOVIES
1 Butterfly tattoos, clothes, belts, hats, and other fashion accessories; proof of mind-control because they refer to the MK-Ultra Project Monarch operation.
2 Black and white checker boards or lines symbolise duality and good/evil. A more subtle variation on this theme is the stock portrait photo which hides half of a star’s face in shadow.
3 Mirrors and shattered glass represent the way the mind is shattered and mirr ored during mental torture. Mirrored personalities represent hidden ‘alters’ who can be made to surface at will with appropriate trigger imagery.
4 Big cats, including lions, panthers and tigers, and domestic cats which are usually black or white and spiky rather than fluffy. Leopard-print clothing also qualifies. The message is that fierce pussies suggest animalistic sexual impulses.
5 Hello Kitty toys are a more childish version of the same idea. Interestingly, the Urban Dictionary describes Hello Kitty as a “Japanese mass-casualty weapon… Doctors warn that even low-level exposure may cause a perfectly sound mind to crack.”
6 Birdcages, chains and other symbolism of imprisonment represent physical and psycho logical bondage in a very literal way.
7 Pink, purple and rainbow colours: it’s hard to see these as sinister, but purple is apparently used to reinforce programming. The rainbow represents psychological splitting.
8 Doll symbolism often appears in fashion shoots to reinforce the mind-controlled nature of a model, who can be posed at will.
9 The Marilyn Monroe look, blonde and classic, is proof that a woman has been ‘Stepforded’ and no longer has any individuality.
10 And finally, photo graphers, fashion designers and direct ors sometimes succ umb to laziness and include more traditional occult symbols such as pentagrams, pyramids (with and without the Eye of Horus), horned animal skulls, and other familiar standards.
