Ok, ive been looking around the web at peoples different predictions and consiparcy theorys etc. as shaun says, the masonic eye and phrygian cap are seen in only one place, well i believe it is on this document - http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/a/a0/Declaration_of_Human_Rights.jpg
Now, here comes the interesting bit. i recently played through AC2 once more, and i turned the subtitles on as someone said something important comes up, well, it sure does. subject 16 is rambling about "she sees the knife" , "i raise the knife" , "im sorry lucy" now, these words mean little in AC2, but come the ending of brotherhood, well, it all makes sense. so does this mean AC3 is set in a futuristic time? and desmond is himself a memory, reliving further memories? who knows
Annother piece of info is that lucy could still be alive. remember The Old Guy , Al Mualim , well, remember he stabbed Altair? and then afterwords, he only gave the effect of death, see death, feel it etc, but not actually dead , that could be how lucy is revived.
So What Do You Think ? Will AC3 Be set In the Past In France, Or A futuristic setting as show in the truth in AC2?
Your Opinions will be interesting to read, especially theorys as to what the series means etc.
