Dark Web Secret Societies?

I’ve noticed that one of the common questions regarding the dark web is whether or not you can find websites for secret societies on it – especially the Illuminati. Why am I not surprised?

Personally, in my experiences on the dark web so far, I have not come across anything relating to the Illuminati, per se, but I did find some other sites on which the groups referred to themselves as secret societies (or something similar).

One of the sites in question was called “Zadier Secret Society,” and I had found the link on Welcome to Dark Web Links and More!, which was one of the first sites I ever visited on Tor.

At the time I clicked on it, the site was active. I remember that it took me to a login page, which you couldn’t get past without a username and password. It also featured a message that said, “We can see you. It doesn’t matter if you’re using Tor and a VPN, we can still see you!”

That may not have been true; perhaps it was just intended to freak out visitors to the site. Still, it was obvious that they didn’t want just anyone visiting. There are many sites like this on Tor, which isn’t that surprising, given that it’s designed for anonymity. More recently, I clicked on the same link, and it was down (hey, it’s Tor; what did you expect?).

There’s one “group” that I’ve encountered more recently that seems to still be active, however. One of their sites was called OWL’S CAGE (yes, in all caps), and is at http://bicxrvlly4dxueka.onion. I hate to disappoint you, readers, but last I checked, I got a “403 Forbidden” error when I clicked on the site.

Now, does this mean only registered users can access it, or is the site incorrectly configured?

Anyway, some of the text on the site read:

The Form…

The File…

The Function…

Welcome to the World of Owl…

The Final Path is Near

The Dangers of the Era Conceals on IT!

Seek IT!

And you will find IT! 

…Good Luck!

Accompanying the text was a large image of an owl in the background. Again, I don’t have a copy of the exact image, but it looked similar to this:

In a way, these sites reminded me a lot of the Cicada 3301 puzzles. They were rather vague, seemed to have a hidden meaning, and a secret society (apparently) created them.

While writing this, I did find one other site called jumpers – a big secret society (Egyptians only), which required a membership to access. Well, in case you couldn’t tell, I’m not Egyptian, so I guess that rules me out. (Oh well.) It looks cool, though, doesn’t it?

Let me know if you come across more of these, readers!

You may find this ironic, but many of the more famous secret societies (for example, the Freemasons) have sites on the clearnet: http://www.freemasonnetwork.org/home

freemason_official

And here’s one that’s supposedly for the Illuminati: Illuminati Official Website

While their activities may be secret to the public, their websites don’t appear to be (unless they have secret websites for members).

As with the rest of the dark web, I think some of this secret society stuff is hype, with a grain of truth to it.

If you happen to discover any new information I may have missed, of course, feel free to mention it in the comments…if it’s not too secretive, that is!

.:L:.I:.O:.N:. 777: Further Exploration

When I first started checking out this LION 777 site, I had assumed it was a scam of some kind, but it appears that there’s more to it than that. (I guess I need to break out of that cynical mindset.) I’m still a bit skeptical, however, given some of the information they talk about.

I don’t know for sure, but it may actually be an internet-based secret society, along the lines of Cicada – don’t quote me on that, though.

Quoting the site itself, “L:.I:.O:.N:. is a Puzzle-Game.” OK, so we’ve established that. If I go by what the site says, the creators of the puzzle-game are this group called Order of Anarchy (OA).

For the curious, here’s Order of Anarchy’s official site: Order Of Anarchy – Enlighten. Overthrow Chaos. Empower.

Like the mysterious Cicada 3301 (if that’s even their real name), OA only gives bits and pieces of information about who they are and what they stand for, but if you put it all together, you can get a pretty good picture.

On their site, there is a brief “FAQ” of sorts, on which it says, “Who are we?” Their answer is “A [sic] Order of family and friends who play and create puzzles and games.” On this same page, they actually list a contact email address, which is orderofanarchy@gmail.com. Feel free to email them with more questions, I guess!

Here’s some other information that they list:

If you want to see the whole thing, just the visit the site. I’m not entirely sure what to make of it anymore, but it appears that this site is a hub for a larger organization with several sub-organizations underneath it.

Definitely going to check this out some more…

 

“Cicada 3301” Request!

sevensexposed

So, a reader made a request on my previous post that I write about the mysterious “Cicada 3301” group (or other such groups).

While I do not know much about the “official” group, from what I gather, they are a secret society searching for enlightenment and the meaning of life, and they attempt to find this path through mathematics, physics, steganography, and other academic disciplines. I don’t think they have anything to do with more well known organizations, like the CIA, FBI, or NSA, even though some people have speculated about this connection.

The site that I thought was their official site used to hint at what the organization was about, and this is how I gathered that they were more spiritual than people may have realized.

What I figured out was that “3301” was not really the name of the group, so much as the person(?) that started it, and revealed the texts to the others (in a way, it’s like their “god” or spiritual guide). These texts would be the Liber Primus and the Gematria Primus, which the author wrote in runes and symbols:

3UmNme4

Nonetheless, the reason that they started sharing the puzzles and mysteries with the world was that they really did want to recruit new members, but didn’t want just anyone to join – they were looking for people who were serious, highly intelligent, and skilled in many academic fields. And presumably, some people did actually pass the tests, although they probably never told anyone publicly about it.

The Uncovering Cicada Wiki, though not affiliated with the group directly, does have some intriguing information about the past puzzles, and about what Cicada is.

Interesting Updates

So, the site that I was referring to above (cicada3301) no longer has the wiki-like structure that it used to. I may be a little late to the party, but what now appears if you visit the site is this message:

turnoffjavascript

It says “Make me a favor, please – Turn off javascript.” Curious, I turned off JavaScript, and then a hidden message appeared (which I did not expect):

newpuzzle

I know that’s difficult to read, so I’ll spell it out here:

Hello
2+5+1 = 8
25*13=325
15,31,3301
sqrt(324)=18
360360/7=51480
360360/8=45045
2513/800=3.14125

APOC SCAE
ALYPSE VERY
SOCIETY CRAZY
CATVS SUN MUSIC
31°46’38.49″N

Since I just came across this, I haven’t had time to solve the puzzle yet, but there’s a definite significance to the numbers, obviously. Even if people have seen this link before, I thought I’d take a crack at the puzzle. In particular, this message has something to do with the number 18, and whatever that may symbolize.

I’ll illustrate: the square root of 324 is 18. 360,360 divided by 7 is 51,480 (as they state). The digits of 51,480, when added up, equal 18. The digits of 45,045, when added up, also equal 18. And obviously, 3.14125 are the first few digits of pi, but there’s more to it than this.

So what else does the number 18 signify? In Hebrew (where letters also stand for numbers), it is the symbol of life: chai.

150px-Hebrew_Chai_Symbol.svg

Likewise, in China, 18 is associated with someone who will have great success and prosper. Could there be a connection? Perhaps!

There is also a correlation between 180 and π, in that to convert radians to degrees, you multiply by 180 over π: Convert from Radians to Degrees pi/18 Is this at all related, or is it reading too much into what’s there?

Perhaps someone who’s more experienced with steganography than I can take this a little further, so I intend to share this around.

And of course, some others have been working on this before me, if you want more information:

Cicada 3301 working out

Ideone.com – GFeI03 – Online Java Compiler and Debugging Tool (someone was analyzing the code of the page with this message)

What happened? r/cicada

VK.com – Utopia Show

There’s also a site which someone created not too long ago that seems to be associated with Cicada, although I have not verified this – http://www.1711141131131.xyz/. The former URL of this site was http://sevens.exposed, which now redirects to the new URL. At various times, this site has also shown different puzzles and encoded messages, similar to the ones that Cicada has posted. (Although, as the group themselves stated, “Beware false paths.”)

Presently, it shows a series of animated messages, which change from symbols to letters. The last three appear to be anagrams:

Ana,

there will come a time

when you will decide

between yourself and your loved ones.

when it comes,

walk the path your peers would not.

and triumph in the victory that you feel in your heart.

A Cab Cede Ether Summer Fruit

A Bash Steg Mr Hemmer Prate

Weighted Jetport Moth

 

What does it all mean? Well, I did take a look at the phrase: “A Cab Cede Ether Summer Fruit,” and noticed that you can get “The Cicada” from some of the letters, but this may just be a coincidence. And I figured “Ana” was a reference to anagrams.

If you have further knowledge, feel free to leave a comment or an idea. That’s always welcome. Due to the fact that it used to be called “sevens.exposed,” I had initially thought that the site had been made by someone who was anti-Cicada.

I’ll elaborate on this in some future posts.
