This symbolism in particular is all over Hollywood. Most of the time, they show the left half of your head (or the left eye) in the shadow, fiery, burnt, etc whereas the right side is shown as the normal, clear side. So what does it represent?

Here is a collection of 'occult' symbolism including the one I have mentioned.

I believe that this symbol is wrongly attributed only to freemasonry, since it is a very ancient symbol (Egyptian Pantheon), representing the Eye of Horus, the panopticism of God (the right side eye). As far as it concerns the left eye, the Eye of Thoth, the Scribt of Gods of the Egyptian Pantheon, represents "karma" (punishment or reward).

Greetings Sekhmet, the ancient Kemites do have what is look upon on the surface as a pantheon. But the eye of Heru and all other references are really alchemical processes within us.

As I understand it the right eye is the eye of sending, and the left eye is the eye of receiving. Perhaps by covering the left eye it symbolizes that they are sending a message. Just a thought I'm having at the moment. 

Also the right side of the body is sometimes attributed to good, and the left side attributed to bad or evil. This may play an important role in our understanding of left and right in a spiritual sense. If thought of mathematically the right side of a spectrum of numbers is the positive, so the left side is the negative, and zero is null and void of negative or positive. The same principle can be applied to the body. 

Greetings Atley, your statement is very well put and thank you for your response.

Maybe the right side is truth and the left is left?  

In Freemasonry, if you enter by the west door, you will see that there are lights only to your right.. indicating we work with what we know and can conceive of, the rest remains hidden from us.  But only because our awareness has not expanded enough to encompass what it contains, we do not have the capacity to recognise what is there.  No-one is hiding anything, we just don't have 'eyes that see' for the time being. 

If it comes to Quantum Physics, for example, I might well and truly say "I'm in the dark" on that subject.

The west door.  Is this the one while facing west or the one on the west side of a building?

The ‘West Door or Entrance’ of a Masonic temple is in the wall opposite ‘The East’, where The Master sits (all this despite actual orientation of the building or position of the door. In our temple the door is actually in the NW and the ‘The East’ is in the south). It is all symbolic.

On the Kabbalah’s Tree of Life you will find Wisdom in the East, Strength in the West and Beauty South central. Much can be gained by exploring this info.

Why only one Eye?  Monocular with no depth perception.  

Mind’s eye - two sides of the brain in sync and seeing all as one. Cosmic consciousness?
(One doesn’t need the eyes to see ... as in dreaming fo example.)

Bible - “let thine eye be single”

The bible a backstop.  Pages turned to get some oil on the pages.  There was never a one in me.  I know masons.  Strong in faith yet weak is spirit.  They back in the day called this "daisy".
