This is my own mystical revelation on the inner inner circle of the Illuminati. The inner inner core is 13 individuals. Fundamentally, these are the 12 Apostles(Judas was replaced by Mathias) plus Paul which equals 13, still alive, still immortal and still operating.
Taking over and ruling the earth was part of the "Great Commission". There's different intrepretations to that idea. With Jesus Christ, the apostles are known as the basic "Eternal Brotherhood." Without Christ, they are the basic other-worldly "Illuminati Brotherhood."
For the last two thousand years, they've been in training in order to establish a base on Earth along with Jesus Christ. Fundamentally, this is rule over this dirt ball by "divine superbeings", however, there's been a perversion of this goal to read "rule of inferior beings" By "the master race". Hopefully, you're partially aware of where that came from.
The are problems within the 13 that have not been resolved yet and which delayed "The Second Coming Of Christ".
Most of the basic Eternal Brotherhood are powerful beings who could defeated any world army in a matter of seconds. I don't believe that the inner circle of "The Earthly Illuminati" or "L. Ron Hubbard" are aware of their existence yet.
