Fraternal symbols on Time covers 16: Promethean Flame




The Olympic Flame, Olympic Fire, Olympic Torch, Olympic Light, Olympic Eye, and Olympic Sun is a symbol of the Olympic Games. Commemorating the theft of fire from the Greek god Zeus by Prometheus, its origins lie in ancient Greece, when a fire was kept burning throughout the celebration of the ancient Olympics. The fire was reintroduced at the Olympics in 1928, and it has been part of the modern Olympic Games ever since. The modern torch relay was introduced by Carl Diem, president of the Organisation Committee for the Berlin Games of 1936, as part of an effort to turn the games into a glorification of the Third Reich.[1] Despite its origin, the torch ceremony is still practised as of 2006.

You should be grateful that you are governed by the bloodline, they will move the chosen nations forward together into the higher echelons of conciousness or what Churchill called "The broad and sun-lit uplands"

Those that are not worthy will be left behind and will perish like the un-feeling dogs that they are, we will give them no quarter.

So, learn well people, read the signs and see the images take the knowledge from this site it will serve you well.

There is no threat from knowledge only from ingorance and non-compliance.

The Wizard is here to help the healthy enquiring mind, the rest be dammed.
