I was watching the end of AC: Brotherhood on youtube again. When the apple first activates when the 2012 Assassins arrive, they begin to see symbols relating to where the temples are hidden. Shawn recognizes some of them and says:

I know this. I know that symbol. That's a Phyrigian Cap. It stands for freedom... and that, that's a Masonic eye. Now those two come together in only one place--

Then Shawn is interrupted by those who came before. Convenient timing, I know.

Some of you may already know, but both symbols have to do with the Freemasons. It's been speculated that they may be Assassin's, but this shows that it could indeed be a major part of the story.

If you're interested to know more, such as I, here are some links:
Phrygian Cap (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phrygian_cap)
The Masonic Eye (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eye_of_Providence)
Freemasonry (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freemasonry)

Also, some interesting details of freemasonry:

Freemasonry Symbols (Familiar...)

Freemasonry uses the metaphors of operative stonemasons' tools and implements, against the allegorical backdrop of the building of King Solomon's Temple, to convey what has been described by both Masons and critics as "a system of morality veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols.
King Solomon's Temple? I've been there.

The origin of Freemasonry has variously been attributed to: King Solomon and the construction of the Temple in Jerusalem, Euclid or Pythagoras, Moses, the Essenes, the Culdees, the Druids, the Gypsies, or the Rosicrucians, not to mention the intellectual descendants of Noah. Some of the more popular theories include Freemasonry being an offshoot of the ancient mystery schools, or that it is an institutional outgrowth of the medieval guilds of stonemasons, or that it is a direct descendant of the the Knights Templar

English Masonic historians place great importance on 24 June 1717 (St. John the Baptist's day) when four London lodges came together at the Goose and Gridiron Ale House in St Paulís churchyard and formed what they called The Grand Lodge of England. Although Freemasonry had existed in England since at least the mid-17th century and in Scotland since The Schaw Statutes were enacted in 1598 and 1599, the establishment of a permanent Grand Lodge in London in 1717 is traditionally considered the formation of organized Freemasonry in its modern sense.

Maybe I'll find more later. All quotes are from Wikipedia.

Some of you probably already caught on to these hints and Shawn's rambling, but I really just want to discuss the idea to the ground.
