days most people have heard of Microsoft Corporation, and its founder Bill
Gates. The majority of computers in use today use Microsoft system software, and
those that do not often run applications from Microsoft. However, few people
know the true story behind the rise of Microsoft and even fewer suspect the
terrible cosmic secrets that are concealed beneath the facade of a successful
In the Object Linking and Embedding 2.0 Programmer's Reference there is a very
curious term. On page 78, the second paragraph starts with the sentence, "In the
aggregation model, this internal communication is
through coordination with a special instance of IUnknown interface known as the
controlling unknown of the aggregate." The term "controlling unknown" is a very
interesting choice of words. It is not the most intuitively obvious term for
what it is describing (a base class used for implementing an object-oriented
data exchange/embedding system).
A term strikingly similar to "controlling unknown" was the term "unknown
superiors", used by many occult secret societies. These included the Strict
Observance Masonic lodge, whose members were sometimes referred to as
"illuminati", and which had some connection with Adam Weishaupt's order.
"Unknown superiors" is a term that refers to non-corporeal or superhuman
agencies in command of secret societies or mystery cults. Such an agency is
frequently known as the "inner head" of an order of organisation, as opposed to
the outer head, who is human.
Organisations 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. Five is a decidedly odd number for such an application, being neither
a power of two nor one less than a power of two, but let us not forget Adam
Weishaupt's discovery of the Law of Fives in the Necronomicon*.
Few people for sure how many buildings there are in the Microsoft campus in
Redmond, WA. No maps of the entire facility are known to exist. Some Microsoft
employees put the estimate at six or three. An article in an Australian
newspaper has claimed that there are 22 buildings. That is partly true; however,
there is another building, hidden from the public and even from most Microsoft
employees. The twenty-third
or Building 7, is pentagonal in shape; its exact location is known only to five
people (of whom Bill Gates may be one), however it is believed that the building
is accessible from elsewhere in the Microsoft campus by a secret passage.
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". The identity of the Outer Head is unknown. Bill Gates may be the Outer
Head, a high initiate of the conspiracy or just a figurehead whose purpose it is
to divert attention.
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. The following day, one of these five men proclaimed
the foundation of the Ancient Illuminated Seers of Bavaria, using the name "Adam
Weishaupt", which means "the first man to know the 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. Their contacts with the Unknown Superiors continued in specially
constructed buildings, originally in Germany but later in Washington. During the
1920s and 1930s there occurred a potential problem; a young writer named Howard
Phillips Lovecraft published many stories which contained allegories to
Illuminated history (for example, Joseph Curwen's invocation of "Yogge-Sothothe"
in an underground complex in the 18th century). It is believed that Lovecraft's
father was a Grand Orient Freemason. The Illuminati, however, persuaded
Lovecraft to join their cause and faked his death in 1937 (Have you ever
wondered why his grave is not marked?) Another incident occurred on October 21,
1967, when occultists attempted to "raise" the Pentagon; they were given
permission to approach it but prevented from completely encircling it. However,
in 1975, a crisis developed that threatened the very foundation of the
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 organisation. The book was called
Immediately, the Illuminati convened an emergency meeting in Cesme, Turkey.
There they discussed a contingency plan to restructure the organisation 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. That year, Microsoft Corporation was founded.
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 invlovement in mystick arts such as the
Cabala, the Illuminati have always had an affinity for symbolism). There is a
legend about a device in the form of a human head which could answer yes/no
questions (some link this device to the Knights Templar and their god Baphomet;
others claim that Pope Sylvester, who lived in the tenth century, brought such
an object back from India, where he met the "Nine Unknown Men"). This device is
extremely suggestive of a computer of some sort, and if it did exist in anything
more than hermetic allegory, it could not have been manufactured by any human
civilisation of the time whose existence is known. Hence, the Illuminati decided
to use a computer company as a front.
It has been already speculated that the name of the founder, Bill Gates, is a
code much as "Adam Weishaupt" was a code. Apart from being the name of a
magician in Aleister Crowley's novel, "Moonchild", Gates is a reference to the
Unknown Superior and the gateway between ordinary reality and the Invisible
World; Lovecraft himself referred to Yog-Sothoth as "the Gateless Gate". By the
same token, IBM can be said to stand not for "International Business Machines"
but rather for "Iacobus Burgundus Molensis", or Jacques de Molay, the last overt
Grand Master of the Knights Templar, whose name was borrowed by the Bavarian
Illuminati for one of their ciphers. One must also not forget that a Microsoft
network administration tool currently under development is named Hermes, after
the god of alchemy, and that a line in Umberto Eco's novel, Foucault's Pendulum
reads, quite clearly, "Microsoft-Hermes".
