  Do not go after the past,
Do not lose yourself in the future.
For the past no longer exists,
And the future is not yet here.
By looking deeply at things just as they are,
In this moment, here and now,
The seeker... continue...

Sure?... Really, really, don`t want to know? Coome aaan!.. Read... read... U want this information, feast my friend FEAST! (l:0P


Origin

In its current form, the symbol first appeared in the west during the 17th & 18th centuries, but representations of an all-seeing eye can be traced back to Egyptian mythology and the Eye of Horus. However, it is first in Buddhism that the eye is associated with a triplicity. Buddha is also regularly referred to as the "Eye of the World" throughout Buddhist scriptures (e.g. Mahaparinibbana Sutta) and is represented as a trinity in the shape of a triangle known as the Tiratna or Triple Gem. 17th-century depictions of the Eye of Providence sometimes show it surrounded by clouds. The later addition of an enclosing triangle is usually seen as a more explicit trinitarian reference to the God of Christianity.

"How events might occure beyond statistical probbabilities and.. "

You might like this book: http://www.enlightenment.com/media/bookrevs/conscuniv.html

As I understand: statistical inconsistencies in psi experiments cannot be ignored... or something.

Anyway, enough mythology.

I believe its most modern incarnation is as a symbol adopted by Freemasonry. You wont find much on the Internet except conspiracy theories (ironically by Christians - a primary tenet of Freemasonry being belief in God). The horus represents the all-seeing-eye of God. (here is a wonderful example, with nice pictures!: http://www.geocities.com/endtimedeception/seal.htm)

Hail Satan, everybody: http://www.prisonplanet.com/articles/january2005/210105devilhand.htm

Almost as chearful as Merry Christmas.
