Oh Yo! Extinction on A Roll
Lately, the world famous business magazine, The Economist, has received quite a bit of international media attention; and understandably so.
Indeed, close to the end of each year, going back decades, it publishes an eagerly awaited special edition, which predicts the major political, business and social trends and events of the year to come. But unlike in the past, the December 2018 issue titled “The World in 2019” distinguished itself by the most unique and interesting characteristic of having had two successive and enigmatic covers. In the span of a few days, the cover photo of the 33rd edition of this magazine—partly-owned by the Rothschild family and reputed mouthpiece for the world’s elite and its global agenda—went from all black color to almost black magic!
And since the magazine’s official website is of no help in deciphering the enigmas of these two covers—more particularly the second version which displays a broad spectrum of cryptic images and symbols—one is left with the uncomfortable need to have recourse to esoteric, occult and Masonic readings. Happily enough, an illuminating description of those mostly apocalyptic and Illuminati symbols has been provided in an eye-opening article on the website of The Vigilant Citizen whose motto is the quote attributed to Confucius: “Signs and symbols rule the world, not words nor laws.”
At the center of the cover stands the “Vitruvian Man”, one of the most important artistic masterpieces—besides the Mona Lisa painting—of Leonardo da Vinci, a genius albeit mysterious figure of the Renaissance era, whose 500th death anniversary is expected to be commemorated, with all pomp and circumstance, in numerous Western countries in 2019 precisely.
In describing this main feature as posted by The Economist, the website explains that the “modern” Vitruvian Man “wears night-vision goggles, or maybe a VR headset […] In his hands, he holds a leaf of cannabis, a baseball, and a Smartphone. One could argue that all of these things are used to distract and pacify the modern man through drug companies, big tech, and entertainment. The Vitruvian Man also has two tattoos. On his forearm is a double-helix, the symbol representing DNA. This is most likely a reference to the intense research in DNA modification happening in the private sector. Was the Vitruvian Man’s DNA altered?”
The article concludes with key observations from which two crucial questions are raised: “Overall, the modern Vitruvian Man appears to be blinded, weakened, distracted, and repressed. The circle around him that once symbolized the spiritual realm is now the Earth. Did the Vitruvian Man lose his soul? Is he now concerned only with Earthly matters?”
