Crazy Conspiracy Theory Suggests Big Ben Is The Illuminati HQ

The Illuminati is a sect shrouded in mystery which has conspiracy theorists in a perpetual state of speculation over the so-called New World Order.


While conspiracy theories might feel worlds apart from our day-to-day lives, a new theory has been constructed, and it’s right on our doorstep.

In a YouTube video, one truth-seeker pleads for the world to ‘wake up’ to the far-fetched possibility that the Illuminati HQ is actually inside Big Ben.

In the short and inexplicable footage, Splidge1982 – who apparently moonlights by sharing deep house music videos – points out the owl symbol in Big Ben’s architecture.


Splidge explains:

Big Ben is the original subliminal message for mind control. OK, yes it’s a clock, but it also looks like an owl which is used by the Illuminati as their secret sign meaning ‘all seeing and all knowing’.

The theory tells a tall tale stating Big Ben is positioned as a symbol of watchfulness over the British capital and its Parliamentary buildings.


The theory also claims the London Eye represents the ‘all-seeing’ capabilities of the Illuminati, as a sort of bonus theory, just for good measure.

Much of the architecture in Central London dates back to the influence of the Knights Templar – and many art historians have documented the heavy occult symbolism in seminal works.

However, no evidence has been found to corroborate the conspiracy theories surrounding the ‘Illuminati confirmed’ Big Ben HQ.


According to the Illuminati Agenda website, the owl symbol is often used for mind control.

The website states:

Representative of wisdom and secrecy, the owl sees in the dark similar to how the Illuminati – who also believe they are the custodians of some forbidden knowledge – see all through their elevated institutions of control.

For these reasons, omnipresent owls can be seen…watching wilfully from the ‘grand’ architecture of so called academia, or even being promoted as something fashionable to the impressionable young masses by the latest mind controlled illuminati puppets.

Next, we’ll be hearing that owls are actually Illuminati spies and that the tawny in your back garden is trying to promote a New World Order.

I suggest these theories be taken with a pinch of salt.
