29. But when they reach a satisfactory level of control, they turn their efforts toward extinguishingindependence and encouraging mindless obedience to whatever orders come from the Illuminati ortheir servants.30. They commit random atrocities - poisoning food at grocery stores, murdering old blind ladies,sniping on the freeway - just to make people vaguely confused, frightened and paranoid.31. They suppress inventions which might change the status quo. The 100-mile-a-gallon carburator,the perfect contraceptive, and the cornucopia plant are all lying in Illuminati vaults, waiting for theday when it will suit the Secret Masters to release them. What happened to the inventors? Boughtoff, intimidated, or just vanished.32. On the other hand, they also maintain secret laboratories where they develop new weapons anddevices of all kind.33. Their arcane investigations cause all sorts of mysteries. Ever wonder about the Loch NessMonster? The ``cattle mutilations?'' The Oregon Crud?34. And they require hundreds of human victims every year for their experiments. Ever wonder whythere are so many Missing Persons reports, and why so few of those people are found?35. They are constantly experimenting with new types of mind control. They put drugs in drinkingwater, flash subliminal messages during movies and TV shows, and play instructions that you can'tquite hear over supermarket loudspeakers. They experiment with microwaves and ultra-low-frequency devices, too.36. And every wire in your house is a potential pathway for Illuminati messages, attacks orcontrolling rays. Did you ever stop to think just how many wires lead to your house? And do you haveany idea where they really come from?37. Naturally, they discourage investigation of the strange and unusual, because it might lead tothem. But they encourage people to joke about the Illuminati.38. They also publish supermarket tabloids, just to make sure that everybody thinks "Hitler's Brain IsAlive!" and "Bigfoot Seen In Hawaii" are just jokes.39. And they encourage the craziest pseudo-science "researchers" they can find, because this tendsto discredit legitimate investigators into the unusual.40. A popular belief is that the Illuminati want power for its own sake. This is true of some of them.But other Illuminated groups exist to support an ideology, to achieve a particular goal, or simply tooppose some other group of Illuminati!41. One of their chief preoccupations is life extension by any means possible. Nobody who has heldultimate power for fifty years is eager to let it go. Anything you can think of . . . yoga, cryonics, body-exchange, magic, cloning, goat (or other) glands, transfusions, computerized personality duplication .. . has been tried by the Illuminati at one time or another. And some of them work!
