From the game Over the Edge, Al Amarja is a fictitious island in the Mediterranean. The capital of the island is called Freedom city and is based upon Washington D.C. Also in the center is a volcano called Mount Ralsius. The island history is said to have been conquered by the Greeks, Romans, North African Muslims, Catalonians, and Castilians. More information can be obtained here Over the Edge Game.

Within this card, there is a lot going on. In fact, there seems to be a lot going on with this card pointing to, if not predicting, the event of the shooting at the Dark Knight Rising. We will first compare the images from the card to another image.

Building comparison to Century 16 theater

Here, this shows the Century 16 theater at the Town Center of Aurora, Colorado beside the card illustration. The building in the background is very identical to the theater. Also note the lights in the background of the card illustration compared to the lights towards the bottom of the theater image. Below is another angle of this.

Century 16 Lighting Design

In the highlighted area you can compare the middle section and the right section with the red and blue set of lines with the lines of light on the illustration. These come very close to matching up.

The next image we look at is a map shot from Google’s maps. (Click on the image below for a larger view)

What this shows is the theater’s location at the Town Center. Way in front of the Town Center marked with the bigger red arrow, it is showing an obelisk within a circle. Looking at the enlarged view of the obelisk, if you count the points on the star there is 12 points. You can see if you add 4 to this its sum is 16. Have not been able to decode where the number 4 comes into play yet but, as shown above, the number 16 is present on the Illuminati card which is obviously connected to Century 16.

Lets, look at this obelisk a bit closer, shown below.

Roman Goddess Aurora on obelsik near Century 16 theater

This is an obelisk with the Roman goddess Aurora. This goddess is another light barer which is very important to the Illuminati. Light baring symbolizes being enlightened which is the same as the root meaning from the word Illuminati – illuminated. Below are more links that provide greater detail of Aurora and this monument.

The next comparison we can look at is the coat that the man is wearing in the illustration. As seen below, this is pretty close to the Joker’s coat.

Jacket comparison between Dark Knight’s character Joker and man depicted on card.

More evidence shows that this is a pretty accurate assumption when we read an article from the news stating that the shooter, James Holmes, referred to himself as the Joker several occasions.

There is another very concrete clue here found within the illustration on the card. This one focuses on the clock that looks like it is melting on the man’s arm. Time time can clearly be seen that he is looking at the clock upside down while to the viewer of the card it is right side up. Putting this right beside the premier ticket at Aurora, CO we can see it match very much to the tee.

After looking through everything within the illustration we can now see what lies within the text of this card. The first thing I want to bring up, which is somewhat hard to read is on the right side of the card. There is some vertical text reading from bottom to top which reads:

Al Amarja is a trademark of John Nephew used with permission. Fnord.

So first obvious question is “Who is John Nephew?” From the Atlas Games’ contact Atlas, I quote the bio:

“John Nephew is the president of Atlas Games. He got his stat in the gaming industry by writing articles for Dragon Magazine while he was still in high school. His writing paid his way through college, and he started Atlas Games in 1990 while he was pursuing his BA in Philosophy at Carleton College, as a way to publish his own work. John manages the business side of Atlas Games, handling distributor and retailer orders and queries, fulfillment (ie. packing boxes), accounts payable and receivable, translation queries, and even a little layout and proofreading once in a while.” – Contact Atlas Games, John Nephew

Now for the second question of what does ‘fnord’ mean? In a nutshell it is a word to represent misdirection or irrelevant information. Obviously James Nephew was not the most important message displayed on this card. However, Atlas Games does seem to be in some kind of partnership with Steve Jackson games (who produced the Illuminati card games) since they are two of the companies appearing on the website Warehouse 23. For a more detailed explanation of fnord visit this website: Wikipedia – Fnord

For the text that is more noticeable in the first section it says:

Although Al Amarja seems constantly on the edge of chaos, it never quite etaion shrdlu Cthulhu fthagn bop she bop hello kitty!

The first part of this statement is pretty clear to understand in which it is talking about the place of Al Amarja being always in chaos. Trying to translate these two words brings nothing out that is relevant and the word Amarja never changes. A bit more digging, brought up that Amarja is a river in India that is suppose to have spiritual importance to the Hindu related to the Shiva god and other Hindu gods. In Hindu the name Amarja is considered a spiritual name that represents daughter of the gods. More information about the river can be found here, The Amarja River.

The rest of this statement is very unclear without doing some studying. The next part of this statement says “it never quite etaion shrdlu.” The sentence goes from English to some other random stuff that is hard to pronoun. Etaion shrdlu is not some other language that needs to be translated, it can be easily understood if one looks back in history around the 19th century during “hot type” print or hot metal typesetting. The random letters would show up in newspapers when the operator made a mistake, they would run their fingers down the linotype machine keyboard and start over. Before going any farther, the letters on the card do not exactly match this order found from the linotype keyboards. On the card you can see that the order is E-T-A-I-O-N S-H-R-D-L-U. Looking at the keyboard from a lino machine the order is E-T-A-O-I-N S-H-R-D-L-U. There is could be an error in the order on the Illuminati card. Below you can see the order of the keyboard.

Also here is an example of how this would have appeared in that time in a newspaper:


Example of Linotype correction

So looking at this and according to the usage of the letters, something before them was a mistake, or more accurately to the card, is acting like a mistake.  After the “etaoin shrdlu” in the article is the corrected phrase. Now we just figure out what the rest of it stands for.

After the lino machine words, we find the one word Cthulhu. Cthulhu is a mythical deity in which has a head that looks like a squid or octopus that dwells in the ocean and some variations of the creature depicts it having wings. The Order of Dagon is, in relevance with the Cthulhu universe, is a secret society that worships the Deep Ones, Father Dagon, Mother Hydra, and even Cthulhu. All of these creatures dwell within the ocean at a sunken city called R’lyeh.

In 2011, a movie was created about this creature called The Call of Cthulhu. One particular trailer on this movie seems to have some very interesting things within it when you do a little deciphering. Below is the link to this specific trailer. Please note that this is a trailer for a horror movie. Even though this one trailer is G rated, I do not support watching the actually movie.

I have concluded there is a lot of detail that can be covered for this certain topic and will create a separate page dedicated to the study and deciphering of Cthulhu Mythos and will create a link on this page for that in the future. Continuing, we can look at the two words combined of “Cthulhu fthagn.” However, when doing web searches the word “fthagn” gets auto-corrected to “fhtagn.” Once again the Illuminati card seems to have a typo with another word, if relevant or not is unknown.

In the fictional language of Cthulhu Mythos, R’lyehian, the phrase “Cthulhu fhtagn” is found and means something of similarity about Cthulhu sleeps, Cthulhu is dreaming, or Cthulhu waits. These two R’lyehian words are also found together in a chant that is used, when repeated, is suppose to call or summon the creature/deity Cthulhu. Once again this will be in more detail on the Cthulhu Mythos page I will create.

The next set of words in the phrase is “bop she bop.” The comes to relate the song called “She Bop” by Cyndi Lauper which had sexual hidden meanings in the lyrics and also in the music video. On the outside, the song is to simply seem fun and about just dancing but in reality is a subliminal message clearly talking about masturbation.  More details on the song can be found below.

“She Bop” Details

The last part of this phrase is “Hello Kitty.” If you don’t already know, Hello Kitty is a very popular franchise of the famous white “kitty” selling from a wide variety of just about anything, a cartoon, and games.

Many people question the fact of why the character does not have a mouth and many do not even realize it until it is mentioned. Some say it’s related to a myth about how “Hello Kitty” was founded where the Japanese mother had a child with cancer in the mouth. The myth goes on to where the only way she was to be successful was by devoting all of Hello Kitty to the devil.

Looking at the symbolic meaning of just the mouth it determines the basic fundamental activities of the human. This consists of consumption, speech, breathe, romance, communication, interaction, and almost a door to the soul (symbolically). The symbolic definition gives an comparison of a river. Rivers have mouths that lead access to something else, much like a gate or door.

Now that we have the symbolic definition of a mouth, if we look at these fundamentals associated with just the mouth and take away the mouth all the fundamental actions are taken away. This does not seem to mean that much to a character but there is more to this. The big question is how do these fundamentals individually relate to the Christian?

The first thing to understand is the effects (or results) symbols have on the subconscious. Below is a table that compares the conscious and the subconscious mind. This came from a hypnosis website which adds more to the effect of symbols. Just from this it is evident that symbols can lead to hypnosis.


Conscious / Subconscious Comparison Chart

Here is a quote from the website as well:

“Surprisingly, it is the subconscious that can be in control of our behaviour most of the time.”

Now that we understand the effects of what symbols can do lets look at the individual fundamentals. The first one is that of consumption. Consumption (or consume) is defined as to take in as food; eat or drink. In 1 Corinthians 10:2-4 it mentions how the Holy Ghost is like a food to the spirit. We must digest the Word of God to grow in the Lord.

The next fundamental is that of speech. Speech is yet another important element for us. Romans 10:9 talks about confessing our sins to God with our mouths and believe so we can be saved. Romans 15:9 is another verse which mentions to sing unto His name. We should be able to make a joyful noise unto the Lord to worship Him. All things have been designed to glorify God.

After speech comes breathe. Breathe is the symbol of life, without it only death remains. Looking at Genesis 2:7 we read that God breathes into Adams nostrils the breath of life and he became a living soul. In my Revelation study, I researched about the symbolic relationship of the Trinity with the three formations of water (solid, liquid, and gas). The synonym for air is spirit and thus we, as humans, must breath air in order to live.

Here then comes the element of romance. This fundamental at first is the harder one to understand. However the first thing that comes to ones mind with the combination of “romance” and the “mouth” would be a kiss. In Romans 16:16, 1 Corinthians 16:20, 2 Corinthians 13:12, 1 Thessalonians 5:26, and 1 Peter 5:14 all state to greet one another with a holy kiss (or a kiss of charity found in Peter). The symbolical definition for a kiss is an act of faith, friendship, love, fellowship, and intimate contact. Aside from the symbolical stand point of a kiss, on the physical side some facts state that kissing is healthy for the body. It is stated that it reduces dermatitis, skin rashes and blemishes among other things.

We can now look at the communication stand point. We should all know, in gerenal, that communication is a very important part of any relationship. In Philemon 6, the Bible talks about how our communication in faith is found. Another form of communication between us and God is prayer. Prayer plays such an important role for the Christian, which is simply a form of talking to Him. Another action that would fall into the communication category is spreading God’s Word (word is defined as a unit of language). Others can also be for example: teaching, witnessing, etc.

Lastly is interaction, which is more or less a summary of all the fundamentals as a whole. Looking at these fundamentals symbolically we can understand these are very critical in role. We need to be in interaction with God, His Son, and the Holy Ghost.

To go even farther, we can find a more sinister and the underlying truth of Hello Kitty. However with the video below, a new company will be introduced. The company is a cosmetic company called M-A-C with their product advertisement is displayed with some kind of sexuality. This video also contains the recurring sexual advertisement, however I am only showing this for educational/informative purposes.

The video mentions another interesting thing called the Project Monarch and certain levels of “programming.” I will try not to stray to far off but below is a description of the levels and what they relate to:

  • ALPHA: Regarded as “general” or regular programming within the base control personality; characterized by extremely pronounced memory retention, along with substantially increased physical strength and visual acuity. Alpha programming is accomplished through deliberately subdividing the victims personality which, in essence, causes a left brain-right brain division, allowing for a programmed union of L and R through neuron pathway stimulation.
  • BETA: Referred to as “sexual” programming. This programming eliminates all learned moral convictions and stimulates the primitive sexual instinct, devoid of inhibitions. “Cat” alters may come out at this level.
  • DELATA: This is known as “killer” programming, originally developed for training special agents or elite soldiers (i.e. Delta Force, First Earth Battalion, Mossad, etc.) in covert operations. Optimal adrenal output and controlled aggression is evident. Subjects are devoid of fear; very systematic in carrying out their assignment. Self-destruct or suicide instructions are layered in at this level.
  • THETA: considered to the “psychic” programming. Bloodliners (those coming from multi-generational Satanic families) were determined to exhibit a greater propensity for having telepathic abilities than did non-bloodliners. Due to its evident limitations, however, various forms of electronic mind control systems were developed and introduced, namely, bio-medical human telemetry devices (brain implants), directed-energy lasers using microwaves and/or electromagnetics. It is reported these are used in conjunction with highly-advanced computers and sophisticated satellite tracking systems.
  • OMEGA: A “self-destruct” form of programming, also known as “Code Green.” The corresponding behaviors include suicidal tendencies and/or self-mutilation. This program is generally activated when the victim/survivor begins therapy or interrogation and too much memory is being recovered.
  • GAMMA: Another form of system protection is through “deception” programming, which elicits misinformation and misdirection. This level is intertwined with demonology and tends to regenerate itself at a later time if inappropriately deactivated.

The next “paragraph” in the card description talks about how the owner is immune to the card “I Lied.” If you read the description of the card related to Al Amarja being immune; the I Lied card states that when used the owner does not have to keep their side of the deal but the target does however. So on the perspective of Al Amarja, it does not have to keep its “side of the deal” per se.
