WISDOM, ALERTNESS, VIGILANCE
However, Illuminati tradition tells a different story. In Illuminati practices, the Owl is revered as a creature of vigilance — a guardian who stands alert so others can rest through the night under its watchful gaze. It is seen as a totem representing wisdom, its eyes ever-watchful for the morning to approach and for the guiding Light to reemerge over the horizon.
In modern culture, the Owl appears in a variety of prominent locations, especially in places of government and on currency. Through magnification, the Owl can even be seen in the corner of every United States one-dollar bill, alongside the Pyramid and the All-Seeing Eye.
