10.08 Eagle

The Eagle is a Greco-Roman symbol which, aside from the Roman Cross and the Roman Star, is likely the most commonly used Roman symbol in the underworld. The term “Eagle” (G+L) consonantly and/or acronymically equates to Greenland, the highest point of the Earth (i.e., the top of the world). The Eagle is symbolic of the Roman Empire for eagles are predators which build their nests high upon cliffs and mountains. Therefore, the Eagle is symbolic of the Roman Empire which sits atop the Earth in Greenland watching over and preying on humanity. Although the Roman Eagle is depicted in the purportedly original flag of the Roman Empire, it was likely not added until the discovery of Greenland around Anno Domini (i.e., 000 BC/AD). Because the world is still under the command and control of the Roman Empire, the Roman Eagle is found in the coat of arms of the Canton of Geneva in Switzerland, home to the United Nations, the de facto world government of Rome. Aside from its rampant use in heraldry, logos, and vexillology (see below), the Roman Eagle is most commonly depicted in modern timey by the letter "W" in the Roman-English alphabet. The letter “W” equates to the letter “V” in the Roman Score (i.e., the Roman alphabet), an acronym for Victoria, the Roman goddess of victory. Furthermore, the letter “V” equates to the letter “B” in the Roman Score (i.e., the Roman alphabet), an acronym for Babylon”, the former capital of the Roman Empire.
