Here at the Mandela Effect ReBirth Blog, we believe that world leaders, public figures and celebrities use a hand gesture, the all-seeing eye gesture, to express a view about life and death. In a society that shuns non-mainstream ideas, they are forced to keep this view private. That view is ReBirth. You can read about ReBirth on the sidebar to the left of this post. One such celebrity is rapper and businessman Jay Z.
Jay Z is the most prominent user of the all-seeing eye symbol. He has chosen it to represent his brand, and his fans use it as a “shout out” to him. There is no doubt that this symbol sheds light into his deeply held beliefs. When asked about his religous beliefs Jay Z has stated, “If people must know my religious beliefs, I believe in one God. I don’t believe in religion. I don’t believe in Christians or Muslims. I think all that separates people. I think it’s one God. I think it’s all the same God, and I don’t believe in Hell. But as far as God, of course I believe in God. Am I a part of some sect or cult? That sounds stupid to me. It’s like ignorant to even say, and umm… I guess that’ll be the last time I address that. It’s ignorant to me.”¹ As I have discussed on previous posts, all religions desbribe rebirth in different words. What Jay Z illustrates in this statement is that all the world’s religions are worshiping one god in different ways, and that this difference in wording is a source of division and conflict. Note also that Jay Z says that he does not believe in hell, giving further credence that he is a believer in rebirth.
One of Jay Z’s songs that illustrates the principles of Rebirth is Young Forever. The image for the single contains three red bars, symbolizing unity in 3. When jay Z says, “Just a picture perfect day that last a whole lifetime and it never ends cause all we have to do is hit rewind,” perhaps he is eluding to the rebirth principle that when you get old, and all your probabilites are exhausted, you replay your life. Hopefully, we can get to a point in society where non-traditional views of life and death can be discussed openly, but for now here’s a link to Jay Z’s video for Young Forever:
