The Illuminati is a secret organization that allegedly controls the world and ultimately also sciforums. It is a popular concept in literature, internet discussion forums and other forms of popular culture.
It is generally thought that there is a real Illuminati and a fictitious one. The real one can be considered a shadow organization of the fictitious one since the latter really is in control. What better cover than being the favourite subject of internet conspiracy nuts? It's possible, though, that the so-called 'real' one is a puppet organisation controlled by the real real one. And so on, and so on, in an ever-less-believable test of my incredulity.
Of course, that's just what they want you to think.
The Illuminati run all state and federal lottery programs as a way to siphon extra capital from the already overburdened sheeple.
The Illuminati feature prominently in Deus Ex - the greatest PC game ever.
