First I'll start by looking at the title: Bones. Bones is the nickname given to Temperance Brennan, the focal character of the show; she is played by Emily Deschanel (daughter of Caleb, director/cinematographer, for next post) but I will go deeper into what I think that means and Bones' name/character/family in real life on the next post. Also I’d like to point out before I get going, that there is absolutely nothing “evil” or sinister about the occult or freemasonry (most freemasons have nothing to do with the occult), but like all things it can be used and abused for “evil” ends but that does not make it “evil”. Somehow though I doubt a company like FOX would use it for positive purposes (if any of it even is conscious).
The word occult has many meanings, but essentially it means something hidden from view. Actual human bones are obviously internal, not external. They are hidden from the human eye thus making them occult in nature. And of course we’ve all seen in the movies when bones are used in magical spells and in occult magickal practices throughout history. Bones are used to make a scene look scarier or more occult. So maybe this contributes to the show; as simply hearing the word “bones” probably produces a primal response in us that might subconsciously encourage the viewer to watch.
From a visual perspective the way the word BONES is written is interesting. The letters are all white (or all black like here, we’ll come to that in later posts) and are fragmented like broken bones except for the letter O which is depicted as a gold hexagon and is the only letter that is not fragmented. If you were really paranoid and interested in this stuff (me) you’d say the B was split up to look like the number 13, an important number to the ancient occult order of the Knights Templar which many Freemasons take their own order’s origins from. Maybe a clue to this is the emphasis on the letter B: Bones, Booth, Brennan (fans refer to Bones and Booth simply as 'BB'). Also Bees create hexagons so maybe that's another clue? If you were really REALLY paranoid you'd count just how many fragments make up the entire word BONES in the logo, and you get 13 including the hexagon as 1 because it is not fragmented. The hexagon also creates the illusion of the cube; this is an important symbol in Freemasonry, and also mainstream religions as the Ka’aba (cube) at
I consider the hexagon to be a magical shape that is universal as it is seen in nature on things like snow flakes, beehives (why won't the bees stop disappearing! I'm sure M Night Shyamalan will tell us ;P) and elsewhere. Hexagons are plastered all over Bones; obviously this can easily be explained away as hexagons are used in chemistry and Bones is supposed to be a forensics show so it makes sense in that respect. But they seem to go out of their way to put hexagons everywhere, even in the latest episode a significant part of the investigation was when some weights left an imprint on the victim and those weights were shaped like hexagons, coincidental (the hexagon shape is very common in dumbbells) or not it does not matter. Murder by hexagon; the amount of hexagons in the show tells me it's not coincidence.
The fictitious “Jeffersonian Institute: Anthropology Department’s” logo is a hexagon with Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man inside a circle within the hexagon. This opens up a whole can of worms of esoteric synchronicity as thanks (or not, depending on your perspective) to Dan Brown’s Da Vinci Code everyone is aware of Da Vinci hiding apparent secrets in his works. Most recently an Italian musician found a musical score in the Last Supper. Could this be suggesting there are similar secrets hidden within Bones? You could simply argue that the Vitruvian Man or Study in Proportions is used because it represents the human anatomy and that's ultimately what they're studying in forensic anthropology, and the chemical Benzene is symbolised by a hexagon with a circle inside it, but things can have multiple meanings, even if they're unintended.
At Rosslyn Chapel (finale of Da Vinci Code) hexagons are all over the place and they also apparently make a musical pattern. NASA has recorded a gigantic 15,000 km hexagon on Saturn showing its universal resonance. Both of these things can be seen in this link: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2007/05/29/nchapel29.xml
The hexagon is one of the world’s most ancient, magical symbols (along with the swastika, the cross etc). It is used extensively in ancient architecture, whether it’s churches or mosques. I believe the universe speaks to us through symbols, and these symbols can be used in an occult manner for good or bad ends; for instance the solar symbol of the Swastika is the main example of this being used by the Nazis to oppress everybody, and the hexagram or Seal of Solomon is used by Zionists to oppress Palestinians as it is the flag for Israel, and of course Christianity and it's hijacked solar cross has been the basis behind countless despicable acts throughout history. But no symbol is inherently bad; they just get hijacked and abused by people with an agenda.
The aforementioned hexagram or Seal of Solomon allowed King Solomon of the Old Testament to control demons, demons which were said to have been used to help him build his famous
Probably the most renowned part of Solomon’s
When you join up the corners of the Seal of Solomon (hexagram/6 pointed star/Star of David) you get a hexagon. When you remove the outside triangles of a hexagram leaving only the internal shape you get a hexagon. This brings us right back to the hexagon which is ridiculously prominent in Bones, hexagons and hexagrams are interchangeable. The hexagram is common in Masonic lodges; it can be viewed as a representation of the occult/Freemasonic adage of “As Above, So Below”.
Going back to the Jeffersonian logo, you can view it as a cube with Da Vinci’s “Study of Proportions” (above) inside of the cube. Freemasonry can be brought in here because it has the man standing inside a circle and inside a square, the geometric results of using the Freemasonic compass and square. And a hexagon can be viewed as a cube; which is the 3d representation of the Masonic square, and the circle is created by the Masonic compass. In most of the initiations you are told to stand with your feet touching at some point, and I've heard you are told to make a square with one foot pointing outwards and one pointing forwards to represent a square (not 100% sure on that one, I think the pictures above shows something similar), this can also be seen above in the “Study of Proportions” in the middle pose.
The characters in Bones have an "
The hexagon can also be seen on the infamous backside of the dollar bill above the Eagle. This hexagram/hexagon is made up of 13 stars, a number which I mentioned earlier. In the highly esoteric Star Wars, Luke Skywalker uses the unseen force (an occult concept) to help him guide the missile through a hexagonal target thus destroying the symbolic death star. The hexagon is used in all sorts of symbolic/occult ways is what I’m saying here.
Esoteric Bones promo? Note 'BB' Bones and Booth inside a cube (or a literal booth, is his name symbolic of the cube?), the skulless skeleton as Bones places the skull on it inside a cube with a revolving illuminated hexagon over her etc.
I can also make an occult connection in terms of sacred geometry and Thomas
Two Screencaps from The Good Shepherd inside the Skull and Bones Tomb and three from Bones episodes showing a mud/skull and bones/Bones synch and also a skeleton costume synch with freemasonic checker board symbolism to emphasise the point. Also the outside of the Skull and Bones tomb, note the twin pillars.
Skull and Bones secret society/occult fraternity I believe has consciously been hinted at in this show.
Some people have even said that a particular picture (above left) shows Bones and Booth in Freemasonic poses (I'm not sure, but they probably are). In both pictures (you can see that they're not just the same picture copied because Bones' head is pointing the opposite way and it is not mirrored because her legs are pointing the same way) she is doing the exact same pose, sure she was probably just told "Keep that same pose whilst I take a few shots" by the photographer. But I find it interesting that in both shots she is making a near perfect 90 degree angle with the gap between her legs symbolically representing the masonic square. This also creates an illuminated right angle triangle if you want to go down the "illuminati"/Albert Pike's light bearer (Lucifer) worshippers route. Also it is strange that Booth has no shoes on, could this be to show off Booth's masonic black and white checker symbolic socks ^^? I jest, but it certainly fits in with what I've been saying, I'm not sure how strict the symbolism is because it's a dark maroon colour as well as the black, that makes up the dark part of the dark and light symbolism. The whole of that photo shoot and promo seemed like a symbolic celebration of Luciferian light to me and dark/light symbolism.
I'm not sure how to round this off. So I'll end by looking at the hexagon simply; there are six sides to a hexagon, there are almost always six main characters in Bones. This could be the reason for
Everything I've written about here is entirely speculative (i.e the links I make are speculation, I'm not saying they're definitely not there, I definitely THINK they are), please don't take it too seriously, just little things I've noticed whilst watching the show. Inspired by the new emerging field of "Synchromysticism" primarily the stuff done by Jake Kotze (lots of my info comes from his excellent videos), Chris Knowles, the Freeman Perspective, Michael Tsarion and many others (see below links).
