That’s what it says (above) in the source code of the home page of Plus Ultra Society, leaves little doubt that there is in fact a secret society behind the name. Plus Ultra moto is much older than the alleged secret society, of the same name that Nikola Tesla was supposed to have been a member of… the Plus Ultra Society.
The fact that I had never heard of the Plus Ultra Society before today, is further proof of how secretive it was, however there has been widespread speculation since 2015 and much awareness cast upon it by another site called Stop Plus Ultra Society. And even a movie to expose the idea further, the notion is that this was the original “White Hat” good guys, who were aware of the criminal cabal in the banking and government, so they needed to be deep underground and only had members of affluence and connection to power and money.
HOW DO WE KNOW?
Being a secret society, physical evidence of Plus Ultra’s existence is difficult to come by. In the century-and-a-quarter since its formation, references to it have largely been relegated to obscure volumes and whispered conversation. To Learn more visit Stop Plus Ultra

Plus ultra (English: Further beyond) is a Latin phrase and the national motto of Spain. It is taken from the personal motto of Charles V (24 February 1500 – 21 September 1558), Holy Roman Emperor and King of Spain (as Charles I), and is a reversal of the original phrase Non terrae plus ultra (“No land further beyond”). This was said to have been inscribed as a warning on the Pillars of Hercules at the Strait of Gibraltar, which marked the edge of the known world. Charles adopted the motto following the discovery of the New World by Columbus, and it also has metaphorical suggestions of taking risks and striving for excellence.
