Great Seal of the United States is a mystical symbol of greatness. European mysticism was not dead at the time the United States of America was founded. The hand of the mysteries controlled in the establishment of the new government for the signature of the mysteries may still be seen on the Great Seal of the United states of America. Careful analysis of the seal discloses a mass of occult and Masonic symbols chief among them, the so-called American Eagle. ... the American eagle upon the Great Seal is but a conventionalized phoenix, a fact plainly discernible from an examination of the original seal.
          The first side portrays the Great Pyramid of Giza, surmounted by the all-seeing eye of God in a triangle.  This relates to the Bible passage which says, "the stone which the builders rejected has become the chief corner-stone."  Only one structure has a "chief" corner-stone and that is a pyramid whose fifth corner is the apex.  Somewhere in antiquity the capstone was lost and many tales arose concerning it. The pyramid is built of seventy stones resting on a foundation on which the date 1776 is written in Roman numerals. The Latin phrase, annuit coeptis, means "He hath approved our plan". The lower Laten phrase, "Novus Ordo Seculorum" means "a new order of the ages" or "A New Age Order"

          On the second side we find an eagle *(or a phoenix) with a number of sets of 13 -13 stars forming a Star of David over the head of the bird, 13 leaves in the olive branch. 13 olives in the branch,13 arrows, 13 stripes on his chest and 13 letters in the Latin phrasem "e pluribus unum", which translates, "from many are one."

 

Above is the birds head from the first Great Seal of the United States (1782). . When the first Great Seal was actually cut, the bird represented upon it was very different from the eagle which now, appears: the neck was much longer and the tuft of feathers at the upper back part of the head was quite noticeable, the beak bore little resemblance to that of the eagle, and the entire bird was much thinner and its wings shorter. It requires very little imagination to trace in this first so-called eagle the mythological phoenix of antiquity. What is more, there is every reason why a phoenix bird should be used to represent a new nation rising out of an old, while as Benjamin Franklin caustically noted, the eagle was not even a bird of good moral character
