From Cinema Symbolism 2 by 32° Freemason Robert W. Sullivan IV:
"If Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) portrays the apotheosis of man (and, by default, humankind), then his 1980 film The Shining is its antithesis graphically depicting his descent into madness and savagery. The Shining is all about alchemy, repetition, doubles, foreshadowing, and dualism signifying that old-age struggle of light versus dark (cf. Manichean Cosmology), good against evil; it is the conscious ego against the shadow self to use Jungian terminology. Kubrick's intentional use of repetition suggests notions of reincarnation, or in The Shining, a vicious reoccurring unbreakable cycle of murder and death which transcends the Overlook Hotel; it is unbreakable, monotonous, and never-ending. Put another way, the Overlook is a revolving door that never stops turning. This allegorical Ouroboros is explained to Jack Torrance... by..Delbert Grady..." - p. 188.

"Stanley Kubrick's copy of Stephen King's The Shining reveals Kubrick intended on esoterically embedding the number 217-changed by Kubrick to 237-into the film, and hints at an occult agenda." - p. 188.

"If one adds the 33 letters and 9 spaces in the phrase "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy," one gets 42." - p. 191.

"When Jack downs the drink, evil enters him: Torrance is served and consumes alcohol at approximately 66 minutes and 6 seconds into the film, the 666 reference to the Antichrist of Revelation; as such Torrance is now possessed by evil." - p. 194.

"The sun qua Gold Room rules over the twelve houses of the zodiac, thus the number 12 repeats within the hotel, but Kubrick's use of the number twelve is twofold. He utilizes it to denote solar-astral allegory as well as repetition, the latter signifying the Overlook's perpetual reincarnation cycle. Hallorann's litany of a freezer and pantry stock includes 12 turkeys, 24 (2 dozen, 12x2) pork roasts, 12-pound bags of sugar, and 12 jugs of black molasses. The hotel is identified as KDK12 by Wendy when she is on the radio with the Forest Service; room 237 is 12 when 2+3+7 are added. Furthermore, when multiplied, 2x3x7, the sum is 42 which reincarnates: 42 is the number on Danny's red, white, and blue shirt from earlier in the movie; Wendy and Danny watch the film Summer of '42 in the Overlook; the number 42 is on Hallorann's license plate." - p. 298.

"...the rubedo, the completion of the Great Work..." - p. 202.

"...what is beyond dispute is that Kubrick intentionally uses numerology, doubles, and repeating imagery throughout the film. The reason for this is not sinister, rather it conveys, if only on a subconscious level the repetitive cycle that is forever occurring, or reoccurring, in the Overlook." - p. 205.

"The shamrock emblematizes the Celtic sun wheel which was used at spring and summer sabbats." - p. 210.

"The eagle was also the Hermetic symbol of sulfur and signified the mysterious fire of Scorpio-the most profoundly significant sign of the zodiac and the Gate of the Great Mystery. Being one of three symbols of Scorpio, the eagle, like the Goat of Mendes, was an emblem of the theurgic art and the secret processes (cf. alchemy) by which the infernal fire of the scorpion was transmuted into the spiritual light-fire of the gods." - p. 221. Quoting The Secret Teachings of All Ages by Manly P. Hall.

"Many actors and filmmakers from the Golden Age of Hollywood were Masons including...Roy Rogers (1911-1998)..." - p. 245.

"Also emphasized within the O.T.O. is kundalini ("coiled one") which in yogic theory is a primal energy, or Shakti, located at the base of the spine. Different spiritual traditions teach methods of awakening kundalini for the purpose of reaching spiritual enlightenment. Kundalini has been called an unconscious, instinctive or libidinal force, or "mother energy or intelligence of complete maturation" important to magical, sexual workings. O.T.O. sex magicks can be heterosexual, homosexual, or solitary." - p. 249.

"The serpent actually looks like two snakes intertwined, which would symbolize the Caduceus of Hermes and, by default, Hermes Trismegistus. Upon close inspection, the serpent is biting its tail, making it an Ouroboros, signifying themes of duality, the Union of Opposites: chaos and order, yin-yang, male and female, dark and light, good and evil, and ignorance and wisdom." - p. 259.

"There is a hidden Sephiroth called Da'at (the mystical state) where all ten Sephirot in the Tree of Life are united as one. To many Kabbalists, when the Sephiroth, its gates or portals, are unlocked it grants the practitioner access to a separate universe, Kether, of divine spiritual enlightenment... The twenty-two paths combined with the ten Sephiroth equal 32... Add inthe hidden Sephiroth Da'at to get the number 33, symbolizing the last, honorary degree in the Scottish Rite: Inspector General." - p. 263.

"It is revealed that Ichabod is a Freemason and that the Masons have been tracking the Horseman to avert the Apocalypse." - p. 270.

"..."Eureka" which is an esoteric Masonic reference to Pythagoras, who exclaimed "Eureka" or "I have found it" after finding and pronouncing the Tetragrammaton in the Vault of Enoch. By pronouncing the name of God correctly, Pythagoras restores Enoch's mathematical pillar and the 47th Proposition of Euclid back to humankind." - p. 271.

"Even the music videos on MTV and VH1 are not immune: by far the greatest Royal Arch-Alchemical music video ever produced is Gloria Estefan's "Live for Loving You" which was the fourth and last single from her third solo album, the Masonically titled Into the Light released in 1991." - p. 282.

"...the Babylonian goddess Ishtar, whose symbol is an eight-pointed star." - p. 299.

"...what is irrefutable is that Kubrick used occult symbolism in his films to convey hidden messages; he does this successfully in The Shining and Eyes Wide Shut." - p. 306. Sullivan, though, continues to remain annoying on the fence regarding what is true in the world of conspiracy.

"Furthermore, honorificabilitudinitatibus mentioned by Costard in Act V, Scene I of Love's Labour's Lost (1597) is an anagram for "hi ludi, F. Baconis nati, tuiti orbi," which is Latin for "these plays, F. Bacon's offspring, are preserved for the world." Bacon was a link in that great chain of minds which has perpetuated the secret doctrine of antiquity from its beginning; the cryptic, numinous works of the Bard of Avon are evidence of this." - p. 321.

"The eye is the deistic Eye of Providence, the Eye of Horus, while seal itself is invested with the number 13: 13 stone levels in the pyramid, 13 letters in Annuit Coeptis, and 13 letters in E Pluribus Unum. The number thirteen is the number of transformation and rebirth, twelve signs of the zodiac ruled over by the sun hence 12 Apostles and Christ (the Sun) who was going to die and be reborn." - p. 353.
