The way I'm interpreting it in my canon is here's a guy who's spent his life aping the surface trappings of the Illuminati but they still won't allow him into their secret club. He can't understand why. He does all the incantations correctly (or close enough for him, he thinks "what difference can it make?"), but for some reason they don't work for him. He doesn't believe in their magick; they're faking. So he's faking, too, just like them.
