It seems odd that Star Trek chose this 1920's mechanic's cap , ( which more suggests a crown of thorns ) , for this man to proclaim himself the new ruler of the entire universe . He crowns himself as did another in earlier history . Those pyramidal shapes are similar to those of a Masonic ceremonial crown interspersed with what seems to symbolize either the Masonic middle finger challenge or Masonry's phallus . This Whoopie capped self proclaimed inter-stellar king is a prelude to Kabbalism's coming adept who will perform a similar ceremony in Jerusalem's rebuilt temple in the distant future . It will be many generations before the Biblical world " peace and safety " will be proclaimed . Even the unbelievers know that .
