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:
Welcome to the World of Owl…
The Final Path is Near
The Dangers of the Era Conceals on IT!
And you will find IT!
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
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!
