A Symbol Factory is an institutional Mechanism of Control that creates, revives, restores, reproduces, and sometimes distributes, Creation Templates, specifically Old Energy Creation Templates.[1][2] Symbol factories are an essential component of The System.

The System

The System consists of Mode of Accumulation, Relations of Accumulation

Mechanisms of Control

Mechanisms of Control > Ideological Institution, Symbol Factory

Notes

Symbol factories are an essential component of The System, required for its smooth operation. Without the constant reproduction of new templates and their constituent Archetypes, the people would wake up and the guillotines would come out, just like they did during the French Revolution.

The Freemason's Lodge, where members created the Masonic Tarot Deck, is a symbol factor[3]
