A selection of images and wallpapers featuring esoteric and occult ideas.

Some of the images featured here include devils, tarot cards, Aleister Crowley, ghosts, witches and symbols.
Many films have esoteric messages hidden behind the main message. For example there are many hidden messages behind the famous film the Wizard of Oz. Some see it as a religious allegory with the yellow brick road as the path to enlightenment while others see it as an atheist allegory with the Wizard, the man behind the curtain, shown to be a charlatan with no special powers.
Many famous books have esoteric messages. For example, The Lord of the Flies is actually an analysis of political systems and serves to illustrate the folly of pure democracy. It shows how letting people do what they want without law and order leads to chaos and destruction. The island where the children are trapped alone is a microcosm of human society. Even children’s books have esoteric messages in them. For example, The Very Hungry Caterpillar seems to argue that it’s ok to binge eat because when you eventually die you will be transformed into a beautiful butterfly!
