Oh, my, not that old saw again. ANy decent history book about the founding
fathers will tell you exactly why the eye and the pyramid are on the bill.

The dollar bill's engraver or designer didn't go to bed one night
and awake the next to find the eye and pyramid on the dollar. It was
placed there by a real, live human being for a very natural reason.

Maybe you are too young to remember "Kilroy was here" but it is a
manifestation of exactly the same thinking.
