Re: If the Illuminati exists, why the division?
'Hello' is probably a derivation of the German word 'heil' from 'zig heil' or 'hail' as in hailing a cab. The o suffix is probably a Britishism as in Cheeri-o! All speculation on my part.
Back on topic, I've always thought that an obsession with identifying numerology, for example, in all matters masonic, is sort of giving their deeds more life. Certain things are unavoidable to notice like WWI ending on Nov 11 at 11 am etc. but when people start getting into multiplying and dividing that seems counter productive.
I've always felt it was better to not label who was doing the damage, but what they were doing.
