Whatīs the meaning of the eye-logo? 5 Years, 8 Months ago  
What do you think ist the meaning of Bobīs eye-logo?

I never cared much about that. But somebody on youtube tells itīs a satanic symbol and Bob worships Lucifer. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cjNbsaqDwKg)

Other people in the internet tell itīs based on the illuminati-eye. They see an association to his 60-minute interview from 2004 when he said he has made a bargain with the chief-commander from another world.

I am very confused about all these things because I have always loved Bobīs lyrics and I never could associate it with some illuminate- or mason- or satanic-things. I never cared about if Bob is a Jew or a Christian or whatever, but I always saw him as a humble God-believing person.

At the moment I canīt listen to Bobīs music without thinking of the eye and getting some bad feelings. This is a very sad situation, because Bobīs my very favourite musician and Iīm listening to his music for two decades and visit his concerts every year since 15 years.

Itīs strange to me that Sony and Columbia also use an eye as their symbols. Otherwise itīs very hard for me to believe that the eye is obtruded to Bob by Columbia or Sony against his own will.

What to you think about the eye and all these things?

With a little google-ing, you can find more than a few interpretations of the eye logo. I found this comment, a couple of years old, at Expecting Rain: "One point that is seldom mentioned is him performing in front of and generally identifying with the Dylan Eye Logo , the eye being the eye of God, the crown being King of king and lord of lords, Jesus and the the diving Dove being the Holy spirit. Performing in front of a huge symbol for the trinity has to have profound significance for what the man believes."

Personally, I think the above is more than a bit far-fetched, as are the "satanic" interpretations. But it demonstrates that with a little imagination (and quite possibly an ideological ax to grind), just about any interpretation is possible. There are lots of interpretations that have circulated: It's a Masonic symbol, or a symbol of the Eqyptian god Ra, etc.

Who knows..... But I wouldn't take any of them very seriously.

I think that right in the middle of the eye logo, the iris, there is a hidden CCTV camera lens planted. All the while all you guys and girls have been taking photos and filming the shows, or even recording them for boots, the eye has been watching and recording you. Sony may well be able to use this CCTV evidence in any prosecution that comes to court. You have been warned!

I have heard the eye-logo is called the Eye of Horus, or the Eye of RA........with many interpretations.....none that I have seen are related to satan or the Illuminati.

I wouldn't have any bad feelings about the eye....continue to love the BOB.

...in my opinion.

Any new info on the eye logo/Illuminati stuff? I come across these things randomly but wonder if there's a consensus among fans these days. I research Illuminati information from time to time but have never really associated it with Bob and his art.

charlie sexton i think said a few years ago that bob doesn't do anything without intention, read into that what you will, but i think the symbol is fairly well stated and beautifully crafted and hopefully will not become too oversold in the merch aisles.

but the uses and abilities of symbols has not been taught to the wider public in current times perhaps for a reason.

Re:Whatīs the meaning of the eye-logo? 4 Years, 3 Months ago  
I've always thought it was related to something called the third eye.

here's a sentence from the wiki definition of the third eye.

..."The third eye is often associated with religious visions, clairvoyance, the ability to observe chakras and auras,[4] precognition, and out-of-body experiences. People who are claimed to have the capacity to utilize their third eyes are sometimes known as seers."

I know I always have an out of body experience when I'm at his shows.
