You may argue to death that there are movements in this image. That's what good illusions do to our eyes.
But can Illuminati be an illusion despite all the many "facts" about this movement?
The answer depends largely on one's locus of control. Very few people can live in a "world without an overall leader" whether holy or evil. I think this is mainly due to long-lasting exposure to religion--the false solution for the right problem.
For fear of death [right problem], people invented gods for protection, and the best way to ensure eternity is being religious. Religion is based on fear, distortion of information, and obedience.
These three weapons are the same used by the so-called Illuminati. Some clever individuals cause terror here and there thru distorted information, and the terrified sheeple bow to imaginary fears.
In The Paradox of the Illuminati, a certain Randy A. warns: "Remember you are as powerful and meaningful as anyone in this world, believing you are not and giving that power away to others, will result in finding someone to blame for YOUR life!"
The "real" movement may be a mere optical illusion.
Of course, I may be missing a few facts, and would like to thank you for updating me!
