"The chessboard is the world, the pieces are the phenomena of the universe, the rules of the game are the laws of nature. The player on the other side is hidden from us."
Thomas Henry Huxley
"In every grain of wheat there lies hidden the soul of a star."
"The Old Ones were, the Old Ones are and the Old Ones will be... not in the spaces we know of, but "between" them ... Yog-Sothoth is the Gate."
Abd al-Hazred, Al Azif
"All perception is inferential; all inference uncertain; all theory, a combination of perception and inference, is therefore educated guessing."

These days most people have heard of Microsoft Corporation, and its founder Bill Gates.
In the Object Linking and Embedding 2.0 Programmer’s Reference there is a very curious term.
"In the aggregation model, this internal communication is achieved through coordination with a special instance of Unknown interface known as the controlling unknown of the aggregate."
A term strikingly similar to "controlling unknown" was the term "unknown superiors", used by many occult secret societies.
Organizations that claimed or were claimed to be commanded by such "unknown superiors" include the Ordo Templi Orientis of Aleister Crowley and the Knights Templar, whose Inner Head was apparently a being named Baphomet.
Apart from the term "controlling unknown", another hint at the secrets behind Microsoft is the fact that Microsoft Windows has a limit of five window device contexts.
Few people for sure how many buildings there are in the Microsoft campus in Redmond, WA.
What is in the five sided building is not known. However, it is believed that the contents of Building 7 are of a supernatural nature. Apart from the Pentagon, there was a similar five-sided building in Nazi Germany. This has been carefully kept hidden from the public. One hypothesis is that Building 7 is inhabited by, or used to communicate with, the Inner Head, or "controlling unknown".
To fully understand this history, or whatever of it may be understood by human minds, one must have some knowledge of the history and origins of the Illuminati. Little is known about the Illuminati, but what is known is that the Illuminati can be definitely traced back to 1776.
On Walpurgis night 1776, five men met in a cavern deep beneath Ingolstadt, Bavaria. There they invoked some sort of supernatural beings and made contact with the Unknown Superiors.
Although the Illuminati were officially disbanded in 1785, they did not disappear; throughout the past 200 years, they have been observing the profane world carefully, and occasionally intervening (as they did in Sarajevo in 1914, St. Petersburg in 1917, Manhattan in 1929 (to divert attention from a rather unpleasant affair off the coast of New England) and Dallas in 1963 to name a few cases.
A book, claiming to be a fantasy novel, appeared. This book was mostly fiction; however, it hinted at the secrets of the Illuminati (even going as far as using Lovecraft’s term "Yog-Sothoth" for the Unknown Superior). To this day it is not known whether the authors were renegade Illuminati or whether the information was acquired from informers within the organization.
Immediately, the Illuminati convened an emergency meeting in Cesme, Turkey. There they discussed a contingency plan to restructure the organization and to move the Pentacle of Invocation to a new location. They decided on setting up a small computer company in one of the smaller cities of the United States as a front.
But why did the Illuminati select a software company and not, say, a company that manages investments or makes kitchen appliances? The answer lies in symbolism (Perhaps because of their involvement in mystic arts such as the Cabala, the Illuminati have always had an affinity for symbolism).
It has been already speculated that the name of the founder, Bill Gates, is a code much as "Adam Weishaupt" was a code.
I am chaos. I am the substance from which your artists and scientists build rhythms. I am the spirit with which your children and clowns laugh in happy anarchy. I am chaos. I am alive, and I tell you that you are free.
