one eyed gods thoughout human history and freemasonary
This is almost.... all you will ever want to know about the all seeing eye or eye of providence!
The all seeing eye is a fantastic symbol despite having negative connotations nowadays, whats so fascinating about the all seeing eye is that its found in different continents around the world from different time periods with slight differences between each culture in describing the so called "evil eye".
The evil eye represents the head god of the masonic pantheon of gods and has been called many names throughout history so its hard to give this god a particular name however in the bible, it appears descretly as the "alpha and omega" with the "omega" being the all seeing eye.
The all seeing eye represents the apostle paul from the new testament and the bible refers to it sometimes in the old testament aswell with the "an eye for an eye, tooth for a tooth" quote as an example of it.
Paul's disease in his eye:
"Even though my illness was a trial to you, you did not treat me with contempt or scorn. Instead, you welcomed me as if I were an angel of God, as if I were Christ Jesus himself. What has happened to all your joy? I can testify that, if you could have done so, you would have torn out your eyes and given them to me."
He also says:
"See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand!"
so we can savely concur that it is indeed the apostle paul who is the all seeing eye in biblical scripture seeing as he's blind in one eye.
Okay, Okay onto the more interesing stuff:
Top left of the picture we have the all seeing eye of RA also known as the eye of horus, by the way both these interpretations are correct because horus was worshipped with seth as a duality god like the "alpha and omega" that I keep harping on about (pun intended). In ancient egyptian mythology the god Horus lost his eye in a skirmish with the god seth but this was probably in a time when they were viewed as two different gods rather than two gods in one.
Barnabas and Paul from the bible are the alpha and omega:
"While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, "Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them."
Then next one down with have two small pictures of statue heads of the goddess Hera with one eye on each statue/picture which appears to be marked in a different more vibrant colour to possibly indicate that the eye has been damaged and depending on the religion or mythlogy determines how this particlar gods eye was lost.
At the top second picture along we have the god Balor the evil eye who in irish mythology was thought to be the king of the Formarians however the evidence speaks otherwise that this is just mythology (though probably based on real events somewhere else) and not history. Balor was also thought to be able to shoots laser beams out of his eye and when he died he hit the ground and his eye carved a huge crater in the ground which later became a lake.
Then we have Polyphemus (the part of the name phemus indicates fame) the cyclops god who has one eye in ancient greek mythology. Cyclops were thought to make lightening bolts for the god Zeus in mount Olympus in their mythology aswell. (zeus being the alpha from the bible, the apostle Barnabas if you must know).
"Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul they called Hermes because he was the chief speaker."
Then next we have three women known as "the Graeae" who in ancient greek mythology shared one eye and one tooth between the three of them just like the bible quote mentions! And is mentioned in the greek mytholgy by story tellers who said that the hero Perseus forced them to tell him the where abouts of three objects in order to kill the infamous Medusa.
this "all seeing eye" god has changed gender many times throughout various mythologys for different reasons such as this particular god was worshipped as a duality god which showed dualistic traits such as being have man and half woman being just one of them.
The word Hermaphrodite comes from the word Hermes or vice versa.
Then we have Odin the norse god who lost his eye in battle, I think so again only has one eye.
Then in the top right corner we have the sumerian god shapesh who has three eyes fighting the god Enlil who carries a bow, so we can see how three women with one eye is a corruption of a story of shapesh who has three eyes and is one deity. Shapesh has no symbolic association with the other sumerian god shamesh as far as I know. This was the name quoted on the internet of this particular god. And like many gods thoughout terran history, the "all seeing eye" is viewed as a sun god sometimes.
The hindu god Kali is also seen as a three eyed god with some dualistic features such as a tongue sticking out which represents another god aswell (Barnabas!). The moon is associated with the all seeing eye for good reason in wiccan religion the moon represents the triple moon goddess which coincides with the story of the three Graeae. Which is alot like the three marys from the bible which also represent the moon in freemasonary, so you see the moon and all seeing eye are interconnected.
AND finally we have two mixtec masks with one of them with one eye missing and has a tongue sticking out which represents another god, the mask shows dualistic features yet again. While the blue one looks like it has a cataract in one eye to designate blindness in that eye to show that its a mask of a god with one eye.
For higher level masonic interpretation alpha and omega or all seeing eye see this:
or check some of my previous images for more details.
Barnabas and paul represent the hyades cluster and orion in higher level freemasonary.
