Many early humans revered the obelisk’s design as a tribute to deities that controlled the sun. Even in modern times, humans have continued to construct these pillars as symbols of victories and accomplishments. The tallest modern obelisk is the Washington Monument in the United States, which stands over 555 feet tall.
In Illuminati symbolism, the obelisk signifies accomplishments and success. Early obelisks were constructed from a single stone that required immeasurable effort to carve, polish, and craft into a perfect tower. But even though the names of the builders have been lost to history, the results of their efforts have continued to stand for thousands of years. Through its physical representation of a singular unit, an obelisk represents the enormous power that hides behind the daily decisions made by every human — even if they are never aware of the effects of their choices or of the victories that are theirs to claim.
The obelisk represents the ability of every person to dedicate their efforts to the advancement of humanity and to leave behind a positive mark on society that will continue to stand as a guidepost for their descendants.
