From Cinema Symbolism 2 by 32° Freemason Robert W. Sullivan IV:
"This author stresses that esoteric symbolism is, most often, intentionally placed. However, like everything in life, there is an exception to every rule." - p. x.

"Cinema can also be prophetic: Thomas "Neo" Anderson's passport expires (or dies) on September 11, 2001, seemingly anticipating the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center and Pentagon. The Matrix reference is particularly disturbing considering the film is about beginning and end, death and rebirth. During the opening credits of 2000's The Patriot, Benjamin Martin's (Mel Gibson) handmade wood rocking chair weighs exactly 9 pounds 11 ounces. When he sits on it, the chair collapses causing Martin to come crashing down. The horrors of September 11, 2001, can also be found in 1981's Escape from New York where an Al-Qaeda-like terrorist organization called the National Liberation Front seeks to strike a blow against American imperialism by crashing an airliner-Air Force One-into lower Manhattan. September 11, 2001, can also be found in the pilot episode of The Lone Gunmen (original airdate 4 March 2001) which involved a government conspiracy to hijack a commercial airliner, fly it into the World Trade Center, and blame the act on terrorists to gain support for a new profit-making war." - p. xv.

"Carpenter's film also employs gematria: the assignment of number values to letters to forge an occult relationship and/or to convey an occult meaning and/or agenda within the words or phrases." - p. xvi.

"The savior archetype is prison inmate John Coffee (Michael Clarke Duncan, 1957-2102) in The Green Mile (1999) who, like James Cole in Twelve Monkeys (1995) bears the initials J.C., symbolizing the New Testament's redemptive." - p. xxvi.

"...The Truman Show's (1998) Truman Burbank (Jim Carrey) begins his journey of gnosis in Seahaven when a studio light falls from the sky in broad daylight which, according to its label, is the Egyptian dog star, Sirius. The star qua studio light causes Truman to have doubts about the nature of his reality. In the mystical pantheon of deities, Sirius is identified with the goddess Isis, who is the virgin consort of the dead and resurrected sun god Osiris (emblematic of the material sun) and the mother of his solar offspring, Horus. As the wife and mother of the sun, Isis qua Sirius ( the brightest star in the nighttime sky) is linked with the divine light of the sun; thus the falling light-star commences Truman's quest eventually rebelling against Seahaven's Manichean Demiurge, Christof (Ed Harris), who is the creator of Truman's illusionary world. Isis, weary of the world of men, was able to procure the secret name of the Egyptian spiritual sun god Amun-Ra, thus allowing her to rule in the heavens with the other gods paralleling Truman's desire to leave the illusionary world of Seahaven for the real world of truth. He accomplishes this at the film's finale when he, reflecting a Gnostic Christ, extends his arms cruciform and then ascends into the sky; Truman walks up a staircase symbolizing his heavenly ascent bidding farewell to the false, material world of the Demiurge." - p. xliv.

"Thus, the expressions of the solar male unified with the lunar female-internal and external, psychologically and physically-is the sublime Chymical Wedding, or syzygy. The finality of the rubedo, the syzygy, is a perfected synthesis..." - p. LIII.

"Jung's syzygy is the union of the sun and moon, Osiris (cf. Orion) and Isis (cf. Sirius), Adam and Eve, Apollo and Diana, Jesus and Mary Magdalene (qua Venus), and Romeo and Juliet's forbidden romance." - p. LIV.

"The three ingredients of alchemy are salt, sulfur, and mercury with the latter often called the materia prima, the first matter of the Philosopher's Stone, the element of change, the Stone itself. Mercury is the fugitive qualities of matter, for its spiritual element, for mobility, for liquidity. Without the spirit of Mercury, nature would remain motionless and unchangeable." - p. LV.

"Numbers aside, traditional Masonic symbols that mysteriously appear in film are the sun; the pentagram representing the Egyptian Dog Star Sirius qua Isis, all-seeing eyes denoting masonic Deism and omnipresense, and masculine solar pyramids all have esoteric contextual meaning in most (not all) films. The lessons, allegorical emblems, and philosophies of both the Blue Lodge (Entered Apprentice, Fellowcraft, and Master Mason) and High Degrees can also be found in film." - p. LXVIII.

"From Freemasonry came the Illuminati born on May 1, 1776, a Bavarian secret society that was supposed to be anti-Clerical, and was denounced as anti-Christian. It infiltrated Freemasonry on the continent of Europe... The Illuminati played a major role in promulgating Enlightenment-occult ideas and virtues throughout the Holy Roman Empire.
"Another religious-political-secret society that influenced not only Freemasonry but the Illuminati was the Society of Jesus, better know as the Jesuits." - p. lxviii.

"[Crowley] founded the religion and philosophy of Thelema, identifying himself as the prophet entrusted with guiding humanity into the Aeon of Horus (cf. a new solar age, the Age of Aquarius) in the early 20th century." - p. lxxi.

"Occult casting is when filmmakers employ a specific actor or actress because of a film (or films) they've appeared in, thereby esoterically investing the new film with that performance, and it related themes and symbolism... These actors and actresses appear in certain films because of their cultural valences, thereby creating an occult construct within an occult construct; their casting is witty, but the motivation is esoteric in nature." - p. .xxiii.

"The first edition of The Royal Arch of Enoch: The Impact of masonic Ritual, Philosophy, and Symbolism (2012) has 690 pages; the number 69, when turned on its side, is the astrological symbol for the fourth house of the zodiac, [B]Cancer, during which the summer solstice occurs. It is during this time that the sun, in the northern hemisphere, is at its full strength as the days are the longest of the year. The sun is the most important symbol in Freemasonry, so the 690 pages are a hidden reference to the sun and the summer solstice signifying, once again, Masonic authorship. Furthermore, The Royal Arch of Enoch (First Edition) was released in mid-August 2012, in the sign of Leo, the house of the sun, signifying the heliacal rising of Sirius, the Masonic Dog Days of Summer, implying Masonic authorship. The Second Edition of The Royal Arch of Enoch was released on December 27, 2016; December 27 is the Feast Day of St. John the Evangelist, one of Freemasonry's patron saints." - pp. lxxiii-lxxiv.

"The Holy Bible, Old and New Testaments, are a solar and astrology allegory best described as astrotheology. The stories and dramatis personae of the Bible are not real people or living history." - p. 2.

"...the Twelve Apostles are representations of the twelve houses of the zodiac. They are not real people. Just as the twelve signs provide aid to the sun on its annual journey, the apostles administer assistance to Jesus the Piscean Age (cf. Precession of the Equinoxes...) sun god." - p. 7.

"The two thieves depicted on either side of Christ symbolize the two thieves of human life: fear of the future and regret of the past. Christ symbolically dies aged 33 because there are 33 vertebrae that form a human spinal column on top of which sits the skull-represented as Golgotha-the place where truth, light or enlightenment perishes. Jesus is nailed to a cross, and both the nails and cross are of occult significance." - p. 14.

"That three nails should be used to crucify the Christ, three murderers to kill CHiram Abiff, and three wounds to slay Prince Coh, the Mexican Indian Osiris, is significant." - p. 15. Quoting Manly P. Hall.
