Wayne Bush - Adam Crabb Interview on Hollywood Movies

The subject of today's show is Hollywood Movies. Here on Earth we love our entertainment, whether it's the big ball game, a Hollywood movie or a rock concert. The movie industry is a multi-billion dollar industry and the budget for some of the Hollywood blockbusters can run into hundreds of millions of dollars. Movies are an outlet for the masses to escape the everyday drudgery of their jobs and problems. Much of the news that's presented to us on TV is fake news. The truth is often presented to us in the guise of fiction. I am going to go over some movies that have a Gnostic theme and reveal aspects of the hidden truth behind this reality. I'll also touch on a couple others that aren't Gnostic themed but serve the agenda of the archons by generating fear and negativity. But notice the underlying themes that run throughout these movies.

The imagery and message of movies and music videos are received by the conscious mind and the symbolism goes into the deeper levels of the unconscious mind or subconscious mind for those that prefer that terminolgy.

National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences presents the Emmys. Its acronym is NATAS, or SATAN backwards.
The Oscar statue of the Oscars Awards gets its name from Ausur or Osiris, the Egyptian god. Both figures are golden, have their arms crossed across the chest and hold a sceptre.

Dreamworks logo: DreamWorks Pictures introduces its movies with this short animation of a boy sitting on the moon and fishing in a body of water (perhaps symbolic of the subconscious mind where dreams are born), presumably on the Earth. This is similar to the siren motif which usually features an attractive woman luring sailors to their deaths with her sweet song and alluring eyes.

Columbia, the torch lady of Columbia Pictures, stands on a mountain or stepped pyramid and holds the light above her head with her right hand.
Columbia Pictures Logo represents Venus or Lucifer, originally Prometheus the god who stole light and gave it to mankind. Prometheus held the fire up in his hand in a fennel-stalk similar to the depiction of Columbia.

The Director of Lucifer Rising, Kenneth Anger said, "Making movies is casting spells."

Researcher Jordan Maxwell said, "Magic wands were always made out of the wood of a Holly tree. It’s made out of Holly wood. Hollywood is a Druidic establishment and the symbols, the words, the terms, the stories, are designed." end-quote


After all,they use terms such as casting and programming.

Movies and television programs use what is called predictive programming to program us by using fiction and the power of suggestion to create a desired outcome. It is life imitating art.

There are also countless movies which depict inorganic predators in the form of black goo, insects, shadow beings. And, of course, there are movies about vampires who feed off the life force or blood of humans. They can shapeshift into flying creatures, bats, and live in the darkness, susceptable to the sunlight. There are also the popular zombie movies where the living dead feed off the brains of humans. This also feeds into the fear of the zombie apocalypse. The truth is we are about as dead and asleep right now as our Spirit ever will be.

But the most obvious example of the overt programming is the oft repeated message to go to the light at death or the sometimes tongue in cheek message to stay away from the light if the speaker doesn't want their loved one to die. Hollywood reinforces this through various movies such as Ghost and Poltergeist.

It can be seen in countless movies. I hardly watch any TV at all but just a couple weeks ago I heard yet another example. About the only show I watch on an onging basis right now is America's Got Talent. To give an example of how cliche the meme has become one of the judges, Howie Mandel, told a contestant, "I said last night you're a beacon of light.and beauty...for Houston...for America...for the world... for humanity....and in movies you always hear this saying 'go toward the light'. And I think America just did. they went toward the light and you're the light". I know of a few other examples off-hand.

A noteworthy example is in A Bug's Life where a bug was flying toward a light zapper or light trap. One of his friend's implores him, "No, Harry, No!. Don't look at the light!" but to no avail as the victim laments, "I can't help it! It's so beautiful!"

Another classic example is in the movie Finding Nemo. Two fish, Dory and Marlin, are deep underwater and it is extremely dark. This scene features an angler fish, a real fish, which lures its prey to death by dangling a light out in front! I'm going to read the conversation between the two fish. Dory sees a light and thinks she is dead. Notice a direct comparison is made to the afterlife. She says the light is so pretty and that she's feeling happy.

MARLIN Dory, do you see anything? DORY Aaah! Something's got me! MARLIN That was me. I'm sorry. DORY [gasps] Who was that?MARLIN Who could it be? It's me! DORY Are..are you my conscience? MARLIN Yeah, yeah. I'm your conscience. We haven't spoken for a while. How are you? DORY Hmm, can't complain. MARLIN Yeah? Good. Now, Dory. I want you to tell me..do you see anything?DORY I see..I see a light. MARLIN A light. DORY Yeah. Over there. Hey, conscience. Am I dead? MARLIN No, I see it too. What is it? DORY It's so pretty. MARLIN I'm feeling...happy. Which is a big deal for me. DORY I want to touch it. Oh! MARLIN Hey, come back. Come on back here. DORY [singing] I'm gonna get you. I'm gonna get you. I'm gonna swim with you. MARLIN I'm gonna get you. I'm gonna be your best friend...good feeling's gone.MARLIN I can't see! I don't know where I'm going! DORY Haah! MARLIN The mask! DORY What mask? DORY Okay, I can't see a thing. MARLIN Oh, gee! DORY Hey, look! A mask! MARLIN Read it! DORY I'm sorry, but if you could just bring it a little closer, I kind of need the light. That's great, keep it right there. ......

MARLIN Don't eat me! Don't eat me! Aaaah! DORY Light, please. MARLIN I'm dead, I'm dead, I'm dead, I'm dead, I'm dead, I died, I'm dead.

In the movie POLTERGEIST the psychic medium tells the little girl, Carol Anne, "Run to the light, Carol Anne. Run as fast as you can! Mommy is in the light! Mommy is waiting for you in the light!!!!!!!

Carol Anne: Mommy, where are you? I can't find you. I can't. I'm afraid of the Light, mommy. I'm afraid of the Light.
Dr. Lesh: Tell her to stay away from the light.
Diane: Maybe it's a way out --
Dr. Lesh: It is -- it is a way out, but not for her. Tell her, quickly.
Diane: Stay away from the light. The light is dangerous. Don't go near it. Don't even look at the light.
Carol Anne: Mommy, there's somebody here ... Mommy, somebody's coming. Mommy, help me, please! Get away from me. Leave me alone!

I actually have a series of images on my website on the Movies page that shows all the movies and TV shows that use the light and tunnel imagery in their poster ads. They include The Ring, Gamer, Prometheus, Prison Break, Moon, Close Encounters, Death Tunnel, Lord of Illusions, Surrogates, The Hypnotist, The Tunnel, Moonraker and Knowing.

In a poster for the movie Daredevil The devil, red suit and all, is posing with the full moon. In the movie the daredevil tells a dying man, "The light at the end of the tunnel? Guess what, that's not heaven... it's the C Train! [the dying man threatens, "I'll kill you, I'll kill you".] Of course, the crescent moon does look like a 'C' in the sea of space.

The tagline on a poster of the movie THE RING: was, "Before You Die, You See The Ring". The Ring is depicted as a solar eclipse!

In the movie BATMAN The Joker says to Batman prior to shooting at him,: "Ever dance with the Devil in the pale moonlight? I ask that of all my prey!"


I am going to start by analyzing one of the most well known and beloved movies of all-time, The 1939 MGM classic, The Wizard of Oz. The classic movie The Wizard of Oz was written by L. Frank Baum, a noted member of the Theosophical society, who rejected Christianity and converted to Gnosticism (known as Theosophy in the nineteenth century) two years before writing the book. He included many Gnostic elements in the book. There are so many overtones. The light of the NDE is past the tunnel (represented by the tornado vortex), over the rainbow (all the colors seen in the tunnel) and in the emerald city (a crystal city is seen in some NDEs). The characters and attributes of the Tin Man/Heart, Lion/Courage, Scarecrow/Brain etc represent the redemption of those lacking in some essential quality, ultimately being restored and causing their life to be almost reborn. The Wizard, the frail old man behind the curtain running the show, is the Demiurge, seemingly all fierce but really nothing in essence: "pay no attention to that man behind the curtain."

The Scarecrow needed a brain to acquire knowledge/Gnosis. The Cowardly Lion needed courage to overcome fear. The Tin Man had to learn to love/heart. Dorothy representing the Consciousness being immersed, had to kill the evil witch, her Ego/Counterfeit Spirit, to progress. The Good Witch was the Enlightened Afterthought propelling us onward.

Dorothy talks about a someplace where there isn't any trouble...says it's far far away "behind the moon", beyond the rain..."somewhere over the rainbow". She is looking for Auntie Em (Emily) in the "storm" which becomes the vortex..... EM....E-M.....ElectroMagnetic? storm.
When she crosses over the rainbow into munchkinland (dmt elves or archons?) they say she fell from a star (lucifer/sophia?) and they make a big deal about saying she is "dead"..... so she is dead and went through the tunnel into this place. Before they get to the Emerald City the wicked witch has used poppies to drug them and put a spell on them. No one has seen the great Oz.... he projects himself as a green headed looking alien.

I like the analogy of Dorothy going through the vortex tunnel, over the rainbow of color, and into the dreamworld (astral) and the demiurge wizard using tricks and deception to run the crystal city of light...very similar to NDES.... the lyrics even say to "step into the light" before they enter the emerald city.

And then Dorothy repeating a mantra ("there's no place like home")/focused intent to wake up from the dream and return back home. The ruby slippers represent the "inner spark" within all of us. When Glinda instructs Dorothy never to take off the ruby slippers, she is telling Dorothy never to lose her inner spark.

- "Look! Emerald City is closer and prettier than ever! Oh, we're almost there at last! At last! It's beautiful isn't it? Just like I knew it would be! He really must be a wonderful Wizard to live in a city like that!" Notice the Wicked Witch's compass or armillary sphere.

"You're out of the woods, You're out of the dark, You're out of the night.
Step into the sun, Step into the light.
Keep straight ahead for the most glorious place
On the Face of the Earth or the sky.
Hold onto your breath, Hold onto your heart, Hold onto your hope.
March up to the gate and bid it open"

That's what they sing right as they get to the emerald city.

Glinda the Good witch tells Dorothy, "You don’t need to be helped any longer. You've always had the power". This is the key component of Gnosticism, that the soul is a divine spark and has the Light Power within.
The Wizard of Oz essentially contains the formula for how to escape this matrix and return home: Dorothy, clicking her heels, and repeating over and over again like a mantra "There's no place like home." In order to return home we definitely do need to maintain a continual focus on raising our frequency, almost like repeating a mantra.


Next I am going to go from an old classic to a more modern example of Gnosticism in the movie, The Matrix. I believe The Matrix was responsible in waking many people up to the possibility that this reality we live in is indeed a matrix or a computer simulation. This is a sci-fi classic where Neo is told humans are nothing more than a battery - a source of power for the machines and that he is living in a false world, a matrix.

"Wake up, Neo. The Matrix has you...." What the HELL? " Follow the white rabbit"

Neo is asleep in a dream world and needs to pay attention to archetypes and symbolism.


The book were Neo stashes the computer discs/ programs: "Simulacra and Simulation"...guy tells Neo he's his savior.... you don't exist


Neo: "Ever had that feeling where you're not sure if you're awake or still dreaming?

You need to unplug


Trinity: "I brought you here to warn you. They're watching you, Neo."


They talk about someting called 'The question'




"What is the matrix?"



The boss at Metacortex: "Every employee understands they are part of the whole"


Morpheus, the god of Dreams, guides Neo out of his cubicle prison at work were Agent Smith and the police are coming to take him


Agent Smith puts an archon like bug in his stomach


Neo wakes up in bed. Morpheus calls him, tells him he is the One and tells him to go to the bridge where trinity picks him up and removes the bug.

"Morpheus: You have the look of a man who accepts what he sees because he is expecting to wake up"


"You're here because you know something. What you know you cant explain but you felt it. you felt it your entire life, that there's something wrong with the world. ... do you know what I'm talking about?


The Matrix?


Do you want to know what it is? The matrix is everywhere/ It's all around us ...it is the world that as been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth...that you are a slave Neo, Like everyone else you were born into bondage, born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind,

he sees millions of humans hooked up to machines....he gets unplugged and goes through a tunnel...Morpheus: "welcome to the real world"


broadcast pirate signal and hack into the matrix 



matrix: he is telling neo about the matrix from a clear/white void the construct or loading program....can load anything...training simulations...inside a computer program..."mental projection of your digital self"... 




Morpeus tells Neo, "What is 'real'? How do you define 'real'? If you're talking about what you can see, what you can feel, what you can taste and see, then 'real' is simply electrical signals interpreted by your brain. This is the world that you know... it exists now only as part of neural interactive simulation that we call 'the matrix'. You've been living in a dream world, Neo."


man unified and gave birth to AI.. a singular consciousness that spawned an entire race of machines

"Welcome to the desert of the real...They (the machines) were dependent on solar power and it was believed that they would be unable to survive without an energy source as abundant as the sun. The human body carries more bioelectricity than a 120-volt battery and over 125,000 BTU's of body heat. Combined with a form of fusion, the machines had found ... there are fields, endless, fields, where human beings are no longer born, we are grown."



"What is the matrix? Control. The matrix is a computer generated dream world built to keep us under control in order to change a human being into this..." Morpheus displays a battery to Neo. "As long as the matrix exists, the human race will never be free."



"we never free a mind once it's reached a certain age...it's dangerous....the mind has trouble letting go"



"don't think you are...know you are....stop trying to hit me and hit me"


you have to let it all go....fear, doubt and disbelief...free your mind"


"sentient programs..... anyone we haven't unplugged is potentially an agent...they are the gatekeepers...they are guarding all the doors, they are holding all the keys


Smith: "the first matrix was designed to be a perfect human world where no one suffered where everyone would be happy and it was a disaster -- no one would accept the program, entire crops were lost."


human benigs as a speces define their reality though misery and suffering ..the perfet world ...you kept trying to wake up from "


"as soon as we started thinking for you. it became our civilization which is what this is all about -- evolution 


all the agent smiths look the same, like clones, like copies, like memes

smith: humans ---> virus

smith: "i hate this place...this zoo, this prison, this reality"

The Sentinels in the movie are AI and are a cross between metal, robotic insects, viruses and squid or octopi as they have tentacles.


Once Neo (anagram for 'one') believes in himself enough then it is apparent he is the One and he is able to stop bullets in mid air. He effortlessly fights off Agent Smith's attack and jumps inside of Agent Smith, travels to his brain or third eye area region and Agent Smith explodes into light....in Gnostic terms, the darkness or shadow is transformed by the Light Power of Neo.

The ending shows the matrix has a "system failure" as Neo phones the people of Earth and tells them he is going to show them a world without rules, controls and boundaries, a world where anything is possible. Neo puts on a pair of sun glasses, looks up toward the heavens and files away, ascending into the atmosphere. So the ending is about ascension.



the sequel, The Matrix Reloaded


birds, trees, wind etc are all programs running



The Oracle tells Neo: "a program can either choose to hide here or return to the source, the machine mainframe where you must go, where the path of the one ends" ...the door made of light in is dreams...she is saying the source is the machine and that the light leads to the machine 


"you can return to Zion if you reach the source but to do that you will need the keymaker":..being held prisoner by an old program, the Merovingian


many agent smiths surround neo and tell him everything is because of purpose and they need to take back the purpose that neo took from them.....agent smith tries to assimilate neo and he starts turning into black goo


merovinigan's wife, persephone, takes them to the keymaker who is through a tunnel that has prison bars at the front end of it


the merovingian tells persephone it is only a game after cheating on her

looks like the Sentinels are coming through a tunnel from the Sun 


the keymaker says there is a level in the building not reachable from elevators or stairs and it has doors one of which leads to Source.. they must destroy a power station to take out the grid network... all must be done as one


lion symbolism on the chair Morpheus is sitting in in the keymaker's building 

Neo goes through the door of light and returns to the source where he meets the architect, a Demiurgic type figure who created the matrix. He is white haired and wearing a business suit and extremely serious. There are hundreds to thousands of computer screens showing different parts of Neo's lives including his reactions to meeting the Architect ..he calls Neo an anomaly of a harmony of mathematical precision ...says this is the 6th version of the matrix. Neo deduces the problem is choice. Those who refuse the program pose a threat to the system. He says Neo must return to Source and to comply with his orders and failure to do so would result in the annihilaton of all humans, .Neo says he wont annihilate all human beings because he needs them to survive. The Architect says Neo's love and emotion and attachment to his love, Trinity, will blind him



Neo is in between the machine and matrix worlds.... meets the power plant's system manager for recycling.operations...



the Oracle says the Architect's purpose is to balance the equation and that her purpose is unbalance the equation


Agent Smith refers to the other Smiths as "the rest of me" indicating they are a collective


Agent Smith tries to assimilate Neo into black goo...Neo becomes an Agent Smith but accesses the Light Power from within and transmutes all of the Agent Smiths into light 

the machines leave and the war is over...Neo saves them

The Architect talks with the Oracle and tells her she's "made a very dangerous game".... this implies that she might be a creative goddess and that the matrix was necessary for her game and that the Architect was the one in charge of making or adminstrating the Matrix. Or that peraps they were co-creators. Some say the term Demiurge literally means "half creator" and in some Gnostic interpretations they share responsibility for the creation of this universe. Incidentally, freemasons call god the Great Architect of the universe.


The Architect says the ones that want out will be freed


The sun rises and is said to be beautiful.


The Oracle says she didn't know but she believed.




Kevin Flynn is talking to his son, Sam.....

Flynn:...raced on ribbons of light..".together we built a new grid for programs and users...I couldn't be in there all the time so I created a program in my own image that could think like you and me and I called him Clu., Codified Light-disc Utility. And Tron, Clu and I built a system where all information was free. An then one day something happened. Something extraordinary. A miracle. " end -quote

Is CLU an anagram for LUC, Lucifer?)

they keep talking about the light grid system being a digital frontier to reshape the human condition

Flynn talking about the computer game system says: "in there is a new world..In there is our future. In there is your destiny. "

Flynn goes missing and Sam enters the video game in search of him. He is given an identity disc were everything he does and learns is imprinted on the disc.

He enters a bright white light and enters a battle game for the entertainment of a crowd of spectators. His dad was trapped in the grid and now is in charge. Sam must now battle CLU in the light cycle grid.

Flynn teaches about being selfless and removing one's self from the equation. CLU was a program designed to create the perfect world.. Something unexpected happened. A miracle. Isos, Isomorphic algorithms (Isos=Isis?), a whole new life form. Control, order, perfection -- none of it meant a thing -- They manifested like a flame. The conditions were right and they came into being. Isos were going to be is gift to the world but CLU happened (57:11 just as he says this he puts two tetrahedronal stars down on the fireplace mantle) CLU fed on Flynn's resistance...the harder he fought the more powerful CLU became. CLU saw the ISOs as an imperfection so he destroyed them.

The portal uses massive power and can only stay open for a while and can only be opened from the outside. The portal closed on him.and he couldn't get back home.


The Truman Show:

Some taglines from the movie are:
On the air, unaware!
The World Is Watching...
The World is a Stage!


In the movie The Truman Show (the True Man show), Truman Burbank's whole life in "Seahaven" is staged and phoney. His whole world, including the sun and moon, is a gigantic set inside a large dome controlled from the moon. Jim Carrey plays Truman, a metaphor for the 'true man'. He is living in a false, artificial world, a hoax perpetrated from the "Lunar Room," a world within a world. Truman is the only authentic person ns his artificially constructed world. The people in is life are mere actors and the whole set is being controlled by a hidden director in the sky. By the way the Egyptian equivalent for Satan is named Set! Could it be that 'true man' is inside a vast dome and that our world is controlled from a base on the moon? Truman, trying to conquer his fear and escape, sets sail for blue skies only to collide into a giant wall. This movie was hailed by critics as "original" and "daring". Why? Because it contains our true origins and is daring to tell us the truth? One of the movie's producers is a Rothschild, the family that started the European banking dynasty.

reality TV show starring the true man

At the very beginning of the movie Truman is looking at himself in the mirror. Unknown to him he is taking to millions of viewers watching him. He says "if I die before I reach the summit you'll use me as an alternative source for food...

eat me"

outside as he heads for work a light canister falls from sky...labeled "Sirius (9 Canis Major)...news story covered as an aircraft shedding parts as it flew over

his wife is reading a book called "The Dream Machine 2"

one compassionate actor in the show, truman's love interest, secretly tells him, "everybody knows everything you do everybody's pretending... this....it's fake its all for you everything is all for you...the sea, the sand, the sky....it's all a set, it's a show

in one scene truman hears a different frequency on the radio and hears the truth...it's only when the frequency changes back that his normal life resumes

his friend tells him, "look at that sunset....that's the big guy"

truman meets his dead father on a bridge in fog

the creator and director of the show explains how they were able to fool Truman: "we accept the reality of the world which we are presented"

truman lives under a domed city...an island surrounded by water

truman becomes suspicious and sneaks off in a boat to leave the island in search of his true home

once they discover truman is missing the moon becomes a searchlight....."cue the sun" at night time

the demiurgic type figure, named Cristof, finds him and calls up the weather program causing a storm which capsizes the boat. Truman barely holds on to survive. Once the storm is over truman sails for blue skies but literally runs into a wall at sea... the boundary of the movie set and his world.

He climbs a set of stairs to meet his creator. A booming voice comes from the sky, the voice of Cristof, saying: "You can speak. I can hear you."

Truman: [to an unseen Christof] Who are you?
Christof: [voice-over] I am The Creator - of a television show that gives hope and joy and inspiration to millions.
Truman: Then who am I?
Christof: You're the star.
Truman: Was nothing real?
Christof: You were real. That's what made you so good to watch.​

At one point Christof made this statement about Truman: "He could leave at any time. If this were anything more than a vague ambition, if he was absolutely determined to discover the truth, there is no way we could prevent him."



In this 1960's TV programme, The Prisoner, by Everyman Pictures, a village whose inhabitants are held prisoner, controlled from a lunar base. From here every move of the prisoner is monitored. On one side is the Earth; on the other side, space. Notice the "eye in the sky".


In the opening theme of 1960s TV series The Prisoner by Everyman Pictures Patrick McGoohan drives down the road (life's road), goes through a tunnel and enters a tunnel with a light at the end to doors that say "Way out". He has only his right eye open as if he is giving his boss the evil eye as he resigns. His ID is then taken by an automated process and put inside a drawer or filing cabinet. He then leaves through the tunnel and packs his bags. He thinks he is going on vacation to paradise or heaven, but is drugged or knocked out by gas and held as a prisoner in the Village. They try to dehumanize him as they refuse to give him a name, only the number 6, which is the number of man. The operation which keeps him as prisoner appears to be the moon as they have shots of space and the constellations on one side and the earth continents on the other and they also show a rocky base underground with podlike container tubes that go down into a hole, reminiscent of craters. If he tries to escape a balloon-like deviced called Rover hunts him down.

The opening sequence always contains this dialogue:
Number Six: Where am I?
Number Two: In the Village.
Number Six: What do you want?
Number Two: Information.
Number Six: Whose side are you on?
Number Two: That would be telling. We want information… information… information.
Number Six: You won't get it.
Number Two: By hook or by crook, we will.
Number Six: Who are you?
Number Two: The new Number Two.
Number Six: Who is Number One?
Number Two: You are Number Six.
Number Six: I am not a number! I am a free man!
Number Two: [laughs]

The Prisoner repeatedly proclaims, "I will not make any deals with you. I've resigned. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed, or numbered! My life is my own!"
Number Six: I will not make any deals with you. I've resigned. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed, or numbered! My life is my own!


#6 kills #2 and is taken to see #1
rocky underground cave, hollowed out base with what looks like mainframe computers running it all -- the moon?
juke boxes playing "all you need is love"
symbols of duality.... mask half white and half black, see saw, militaristic show of force
an assemblyw earing white robes with hoods that look like ghosts make up the democracy with placards with words like Activists, Youngsters, Education, Identification, Anarchists, Entertainment, Recreation, applauding #2...judge on a pedestal

"matter of democratic crisis"to resolve the question of revolt...remind ourselves humanity is not humanized w/o force and that errant children must be brought to
#6 survived the ultimate test so must no longer be referred to as #6 or a number of any kind, he has vindicated the right of the individual, to be individual
transfer of ultimate power
#6 is granted the honor of sitting a throne or chair of honor atop a stepped pyramid of stairs
there is a silo or tower with the #1 on it with a blinking AI eye
3 men who represent specific forms of revolt are in cylindrical tubes beneath the surface in what look like crater holes ...the judge keeps repeatedly telling one man to confess but the man is speaking nonsensical crazy jibberish like a lunatic representing youth rebeling against the accepted norm but revolt must be abolished for the common good of society
The young prisoner is pronounced guilty and charged with the serious breach of social etiquette, defiance of elementary laws which sustain the community, questioning the decisions of those voted to govern, unhealthy aspects of speech and refusal to respond to his number
the second revolutionary being held prisoner is #2, an established successful secure member of the establishment turning opun the hand that feeds him, he is brought back to life and tells the

blinking AI eye "whoever you are, whatever you are, you will hypnotize me no longer"
the third revolutionary is #6 himself who has revolted, resisted, fought, held fast, maintained, destroyed resistance, overcome coercion, the right to be person someone or individual despite materialistic efforts he has survived intact and secure
he is recognized as a man, a man of steel magnificently equipped to lead them or to go
he is given the choice to become their new leader or to go anywhere..he is free to go anywere because he has been such an example, convinced them of their mistakes and is pure and knows the way

to show them...his revolt is good and honest, the only individual ...they concede
#6 is asked to make a statement and then taken to meet #1 ..he is taken to one of the cylinders, gets in and descends...walks down a corridor through a series of doors....
there is a table with a bunch of various sized earth models and globes... a being in a white hooded robe bearing the number 1 is holding a glass globe, he is wearing a mask that is white on one side and black on the other. #6 removes the mask and reveals the mask of an ape, he then removes the ape mask and sees his own face. the being laughs hysterically and runs away.
#6 manages to escape and return back to his normal life.


The next movie we're going to look at is Dark City (1999)

Seemingly patterned after the Archon beings of the Gnostic texts and the reports in the Ufology community, Dark City is similar to The Truman Show -- a human was given fabricated memories of his childhood life and presented a false reality. He travels to the edge of his world to go home to Shell Beach but hits a wall. Like Truman, he tries to break through the wall.

some quotes from the movie:

"They steal peoples' memories, then they swap them around between us. I've seen them do it, back and forth 'til no one knows who they are anymore. How do you know all this? Once in a while one of us wakes up while they're changing things. It's not supposed to happen, but it does.
We fashioned this city on stolen memories. Different eras, different pasts, all rolled into one. Each night we revise it, refine it, in order to learn. Learn what? About you. You and your fellow inhabitants, what makes you human. Why? We need to be like you.
I call them Strangers. They abducted us and brought us here. This city, everyone in it is their experiment. They mix and match our memories as they see fit, trying to divine what makes us unique. One day, a man might be an inspector. The next, someone entirely different. When they want to study a murderer, for instance, they simply imprint one of their citizens with a new personality. Arrange a family for him, friends, an entire history... even a lost wallet. Then they observe the results. Will a man, given the history of a killer, continue in that vein? Or are we, in fact, more than the sum of our memories? This business of you being a killer was a sad coincidence. You have had dozens of lives before now. You happened to wake up while I was imprinting you with this one. Why are they doing all this? It is our capacity for individuality -- our souls -- that makes us different from them. They think they'll find the human soul if they understand how our memories work. They have collective memories. They share one group mind. They're dying. Their race is on the brink of extinction. They think we can save them. Where do I fit in? You're different. You resisted my attempt to imprint you. Somehow you have developed their ability to Tune. That is how they change things, how they built this city. They have machines buried beneath the surface that allow them to focus their telepathic energies. They control everything here, even the sun. That's why it's always dark. They can't stand the light. Why do they need you? When they first brought us here, they extracted what was in us and stored the information, remixed it like paint and gave us back new memories of their choosing. But they still needed an artist to help them. I understood the human mind better than they ever could, so they allowed me to keep my skills as a scientist... because they needed them. They made me delete everything else. Can you imagine what it's like to erase your own past?

What about my past? What about my childhood? Shell Beach. Uncle Karl. What about this? This was blank when I found it.

You still don't understand. You were never a boy. Not in this place. Your history is an illusion, a fabrication, as it is with all of us.
There is no ocean, John. There's nothing beyond the city. The only place home exists is in your head.
They want to imprint you with their own collective memories. They want to make you one of them... so they can share your soul.
Here's the machine the Strangers use to amplify their thoughts, the machine that changes their world. You must take control of it. You must make the machine yours. I know you can beat them, but you must concentrate.
You told me I had the power, didn't you? I can make these machines do anything I want. Make this world anything I want it to be. Just so long as I concentrate hard enough. Where are you going?

Shell Beach.
It's so beautiful here. So bright.

Do you know if Shell Beach is around here?

I think that's it over there. I'm headed that way myself. Would you like to join me?

THE THIRTEENTH FLOOR (1999) Columbia Pictures

Holographic computer simulated universe matrix in movie The Thirteenth Floor

The Thirteenth Floor - The Thirteenth Floor was released the year after the Truman Show and like The Truman Show and Dark City, the main character travels to the edge of his world and discovers that it's a simulation.

DOUGLAS: How many simulated worlds like this are there?

JANE: Thousands. Yours is the only one that ever created a simulation within the simulation. Something we never expected.

DOUGLAS: No Ashton, I'm not really a God. I'm just like you. Just a bunch of electricity.

ASHTON: What are you talking about?

DOUGLAS: It's all smoke and mirrors. Just like your world. We're nothing but a simulation on some computer. It's like a machine. Like this arcade game. You've got your players and you put your nickel in. This one pitches. This one runs around the bases. Pre- programmed movements generated by electrical energy. We've improved on this model since then. The players can beat the shit out of and try to drown some other, which is always fun.

In this sci-fi classic, society is subversively controlled by a race of non-humans. Billboards and magazines subliminally read, "Obey. Submit." Money covertly displays, "This is your God." Notice a pair of sun glasses is what reveals this hidden truth.


Holographic Power Grid in the movie The Island

Before their "birth" on earth, clones are created in pods and programmed via light and hypnotic suggestion that they are "special" and "have been chosen to go to the island" which is powered by a holographic grid.

"You're special. You have a very special purpose in life. You've been chosen. The Island awaits you.... You've been chosen. You have a very special purpose. You're part of a new beginning.You're special. You have a very special purpose. You want to go to the Island. Your purpose in life is to populate the Island. You're part of a new beginning. You're special. Very special. You've been chosen. You've been chosen. Chosen to survive, to carry on. You want to go to the Island. Go, go! You have a very special purpose. Very special."

THE GAME (1997)

Michael Douglas plays a wealthy businessman caught up in the routine of life. His brother, played by Sean Penn, gives him a birthday gift for the man who has everything. It is a tailor-made "game" customized for the willing partcipant who willingly agrees to play the game. This "game" plunges him into a hell-like reality where he is thrown into survival mode and doesn't know what the truth is anymore or who he can trust. This company even has the power to control the daily news he watches. SPOILER ALERT: He is so distraught by the game that he jumps from the top of a skyscraper to commit suicide only to land on an inflated "X" that marks the spot or bull's eye. They had planned all along for him to jump. As it turns out all of it was an elaborate prank or joke. Of course, you never "get" a joke until after the very end is told or played out. The funny thing is while all the hired actors (his so-called acquaintences and friends) celebrated afterwards, I never saw him crack a smile or laugh about it in the end. This movie hints that our very reality could in fact all just be an elaborate hoax or trick -- yes, a game.

GAMER (2009)

Convicts and other willing participants agree to have their bodies completely controlled by a game player with user controls, but the originator of the game plans to enslave and trap all humans in the video game. One tandem is breaking free from the system though. The creator declares the character "dead" and then lures the game character with a virtual reality creation of his daughter sitting in the entrance of a moongate. It's a weird sequence in the movie. The character suddenly is underneath the stars looking up. He walks through a dark corridor or tunnel with a light at one end. He sees his daughter sitting in the light of the moongate and he runs to her only to hit a force field of what he finds out was just an illusion and a trap set for him. We see the moongate is at the top of some steps almost like a pyramid. The game creator takes him upstairs onto a barren rocky surface underneath the stars again. In light of the peviously mentioned moongate we can only assume this is meant to symbolize the moon. He takes him to a basketball court where a battle of will power ensues. The game ends (and movie too) as the hero enters a tunnel (with no visible light shown).

MONSTERS, INC. (2001) Disney Pixar

Monster's Inc. movie childrens screams used as energy source to power monster world

Monster's Inc. - "The future is bright at Monsters, Inc.! We're part of your life. We power your car. We warm your home. We light your city... Carefully matching every child to their ideal monster to produce a superior scream refined into clean dependable energy... Everytime your turn something on, Monster's Inc is there... We know the challenge. The window of innocence is shrinking. Human kids are becoming harder to scare... The best refineries and research into new energy techniques... We're Monster's Inc... 'We scare because we care!' "


I can't really do analysis of programming in Hollywood movies without mentioning Disney. Of course, there is The Sorceror's Apprentice where Mickey Mouse is dressed up as the wizard's apprentice with a wizard's hat and robe and magic wand. And then there is the constant reinforcement of the Princess motif which perpetuaates the idea of monarchical rule, but also gives young girls an entitlement and the unrealistic dream of being rescued by a handsome, young Prince, Pince Charming, who will enable her to be Queen herself one day. But I would like to focus on one movie in particular and that is Peter Pan. I believe it contains much symbolism for the afterlife. In fact, one of the most famous quotes from the movie is "To Die Will Be An Awfully Big Adventure (Peter Pan)".

Pan, the Devil, plays a tune on his pan pipes. The Pied Piper is a many-colored Piper -- that's what pied means, many-colored -- and leads the children (of god) with his pipe (nde tunnel) into the rock / mountain (moon is a rock). And why the name "Peter Pan"? Petr means rock (moon?), also fuel (energy source) and Pan means "all" which would be "all" frequencies combined: white. The Devil is known to use a "pitch" fork to goad souls to Hell. Nep-TUNE has the trident or pitchfork too. A pitch fork is a tuning fork. So you have a tune or note/frequency and you have a fork which is a many pronged instrument. Think of a fork with seven rays of light or seven prongs and like a fork they all funnel into one like the handle on the fork we eat with, The trident or three-pronged pitchfork may symbolize the three colors red-green-blue since our eyes have three color receptors and all the colors of the rainbow can be made with those three colors. So all the different colors of souls funnel through the tunnel or tune-l into the band of white light which is all frequencies combined. Since it's all combined it would resonate with every single color or frequency of souls... the light is electromagnetic so there could be magnetic resonance like in an MRI. In the television mini-series named "Neverland" Peter plays his pipe and a huge tunnel opens up. There are literally dozens and dozens of accounts of near death experiencers who report going through a pipe or tunnel, hearing music or tones while in it, experiencing swirling colors and feeling a wind as they emerge into the white light, which is the combination of ALL colors. Peter Pan could be translated as "Father All".

Disney made Pan into a cartoon character and major motion picture star with the release of their animated movie Peter Pan which looked liked the mischievious playful sylvan forest god of greek mythology. He dressed in green, had pointed ears, and possessed magical powers of a fairy such as being able to fly and he played on his pan pipes or flute, and just wanted to have fun all the time and never grow up. To help him he also had Wendy (windy), a tinker bell and a dragon or crocodile. He defeated his nemesis Captain Hook -- by the crocodile eating him in the moon. He urged the viewer to go to Neverland by following a star, the second star on the right, which very well may be an allusion to Sirius. "The second star to the right shines in the night for you to tell you that the dreams you plan really can come true. The second star to the right shines with a light so rare and if it's Never Land you need its light will lead you there." Pan played a flute or the pan pipes. Not only did the fairy tales have a piper named Peter, but in nursery rhymes there was Peter Piper who picked a peck of pickled peppers. Peppers are of the piper genus. The words are etymologically related.

Wendy's mother is named Mary, an aspect of Isis. The nurse mother for Wendy's family is Nana (moon goddess) a dog probably symbolic of Sirius, the binary or trinary dog star. Peter Pan insists the second star on the right (and then straight on til morning) will take you to Neverland. They fly past the moon, to a bell tower with an orange clock (time is 8:15, Sirius usually rises in August) representative of our sun which causes time and is a stargate. So they pass through the stargate of our Sun and then they go past a bridge (gateway, stargate, pipe) along the Milky Way river to the second star on the right which is smaller. This may very well be the dwarf companion of Sirius in the Pleaides constellation. This is the meaning of Snow White (Sirius) and the seven dwarves which are the seven sisters of the Pleiades. Peter Pan keeps calling him a "cod fish". The letter "G" evolved from "C" so it's possible "god" looked like a "cod" fish. Captain Cook while fighting Peter Pan says he is no mere mortal but a "flying devil". Peter Pan is from Sirius, the dog star, but he sails souls into the moon to reincarnate them on Earth. Peter is from Sirius but as the pagan nature god and mountain king lives in a tree underground just like the Celtic trickster moon god, Gwydion, and is associated with Celtic traditions such as the Green Man or Jack-in-the-Green. It is also interesting that there are movies such as Pan's Labyrinth that show Pan presiding over an underground labyrinth.

The Peter Pan movie begins with the narration "All this has happened before and it will all happen again." as they show a river symbolic of the Milky Way galaxy. The movie ends with the statement, "I have the strangest feeling I saw that ship a long time ago when I was very young." This is obviously referring to the cyclical notion of reincarnation or recycling of souls. [Could Robin Hood and Maid Marian of Sherwood Forest be yet another tale of Peter Pan and Mary?]

Steven Spielberg (spiel means spell, burg is german for 'rock' or mountain) directed the movie Hook starring Robin Williams as an older, "grown-up" Peter Pan. I find the image (a sphere with Tinker Bell's golden light as a lure on Captain Hook's hook) of this movie poster for Hook suggestive of the Dreamworks Pictures opening sequence of the boy fishing on the moon with his 'hook' down on the waters on Earth. One of the more memorable quotes from the movie is Peter Pan declaring, "To die will be an awfully big adventure." There is a scene where Tinkerbell who is lit up like a "firefly from hell", as Peter calls her, is pulling him toward her and he says he has died, is out of his body and is going to the light, a direct reference to the Light mentioned in near death experiences. Later Peter tells his army of soldiers called The Lost Boys, "Let's get ready to show them the white light we're made of, boys." He also has to "climb up a drain pipe" because he "ran out of fairy dust".


THE HOST (2013)


The Host is a movie written by Stephanie Meyer who wrote The Twilight saga. The screenplay was written and directed by Andrew Niccol who also wrote the revealing movie Truman Show. Humans are hosts to entities that look like jellyfish. From a summary:
The human race has been taken over by small parasitic aliens called "Souls". The Souls travel to distant planets inserting themselves individually into a host body of that planet's dominant species. They are able to access the host's memories, and occupied hosts are identifiable by silver rings that form in the hosts' eyes.

SEEKER REED: We have put you through enough. Your host appears too resistant. You are going to be re-implanted into a more compliant host.
I know you must have seen a lot, but you ain't seen nothing like this.
WANDERER: Nothing. Same way the magicians do it. Mirrors.
Then I started thinking, when they put one of you in our heads, do we still exist? Trapped in there? If our memories are still alive, are we? You gotta believe some people wouldn't go down without a fight.


There are so many Gnostic overtones and awakening within a constructed reality. The robots are humans in the scenario, meaning they are kept repeating roles and are wiped each time they die. In Westworld every host's life is scripted but some hosts were programmed to remember and break out or expose the truth.

Some quotes from episodes:

#4 "I think there may be something wrong with this world. Something hiding underneath. Either that or... or there's something wrong with me. I may be losing my mind.
There's something I'd like you to try. It's a game. A secret. It's called... the Maze.
What kind of game is it?
It's a very special kind of game, Dolores. The goal is to find the center of it. If you can do that, then maybe you can be free.
I think... I think I want to be free."


"The maze is an old native myth. Regale me, Theodore. The maze itself is the sum of a man's life... Choices he makes, dreams he hangs on to. And there at the center, there's a legendary man who had been killed over and over again countless times, but always clawed his way back to life. The man returned for the last time and vanquished all his oppressors in a tireless fury. He built a house. Around that house he built a maze so complicated, only he could navigate through it."


"And that was when the maze revealed itself to me. The maze. What's that damn pattern have to do with this? Everything. In Ford's game, even if I go to the outer edges, you can't kill me. You can't even leave a lasting mark. But there's a deeper game here, Teddy. Arnold's game. And that game... cuts deep."

"I died with my eyes open, saw the masters who pull our strings.
Our lives, our memories, our deaths are games to them.
But I've been to hell and I know their tricks."


The movie Childhood's End was based on the book by Arthur C. Clarke, author of 2001: a Space Odyssey. As with that book Childhood's End also deals with aliens and the future evolution of mankind into a potentially different form.

Part 1: The Overlords

40 cities around the world have UFO vessels hovering over them.

Still have no idea what they want or where they have come from, as they have made no replies to any attempts to contact them. An alien being named Karellen finally contacts them and says " I'm the supervisor for Earth. There's no need to be afraid. My name is Karellen. I'm the supervisor for Earth. I know that this is frightening and bewildering. Please try to understand that we've come a long, long way to help you. We've come to help mankind. War, famine, inequality... these will be things of the past. Suffering will end. Injustice will end. No tears, only happiness and safety. Your national and local governments will still have jurisdiction. You will run your water and power. Your stores will be open. Your markets will trade. Your lives will continue as before minus one thing. Injustice. This won't happen overnight, but the process is already beginning. It will herald the arrival of the golden age of man.

They appear to humans as beloved deceased relatives.

The Overlords talk about peace, harmony, justice. Then they smash a fella's house in and carry him away.
I talked with him... with Karellen. What--what did he say? What--what did he look like? I don't know. I didn't-- I didn't see him face-to-face... Uh, I was taken up to meet with him... uh, Karellen, and I was not permitted to see him... physically, uh, although I could tell that, in speaking to him, he seemed to be compassionate.

They control our justice system...They are watching us all the time, and they are dealing in swift moral absolutes.

Evil can disguise itself as truth. Whatever faith or belief you have, know that we're in this battle together, all of us. We can never give up the fight. No matter how mighty the Overlords may seem, we should never give up. Remember, there is an ultimate truth in this universe. I will never, ever stop believing that.

"Youth of Utopia," they called it. The Earth was being reborn, so to speak, and right now was waiting to meet their guardian angels.

They showed us how to make heaven on Earth.
It's a beautiful, balmy evening as the sun starts to set on the 200,000 excited spectators. Delegates from the World Federation are taking to the main podium. It's fair to say that everybody's breath is truly bated as we wait to meet our guardian angels.... People are on their feet. We haven't seen an Overlord ship this close since they first arrived over a decade and a half ago. Now, it does appear to be docking with the arrival ramp. ? ? And it's docked. The ship is docked. ? ? This is Karellen. Let the children come forward. The child greeters that Karellen asked for are now entering the arrival ramp...Karellen was right to hide himself from us. Still, I think, uh... I think it may be too soon.

Karellen is the classic depiction of Satan....red with horns, hooves and wings.

Part 2: The Deceivers
We have renewable, clean energy and enough food to feed the planet, all of our material needs satisfied. Death is still a fact of life, but free from disease, stress, and all the things that turned us grey. We live longer, healthier lives. The birth rate is soaring. We have a world that we are proud to bring children into. For those who cling to the old ways, there's always New Athens...

Could it have something to do with the animals we've been collecting for the Overlords?... But sending live animals into space? What does that teach us about them? Because there's one species they haven't collected: us, homo sapiens.
When the Overlords came, they raised all these exciting questions about the cosmos, but they refused to answer any of them. It's not just about me. They've killed scientific inquiry.
They can't hurt you. It's in your-- Minds are funny things. They can change the way we see the world. [baby crying echoing] They can fool us.

Why do they look like demons? Like our exact idea of devils? ....So then why turn them into the personification of evil? Hmm.
Tom told me they take him somewhere, to a place of fire and smoke--
The Overlords are deceiving us. I don't know why, but they are.
We're from the World Federation.
So... you have solved many of the problems your science was chasing. Disease, climate change, and as a consequence, much of your research is now redundant. Nevertheless, you should be proud of what you have accomplished. Bravo. Now, I know there's been some concern as to why I acquired so many animals for the Overlords. They are to be shipped to Karellen's home world as part of a great menagerie, a zoo. [crowd murmuring]

You will find a new voice inside you... who I can now speak with. You need to trust us.... You know who you really are and what you're joined with, so tell me and tell yourself. You are singular and myriad, one and many. Reveal yourself to me. Reveal yourself to me... Listen to my voice. [Amy breathing unevenly] You're trying to be a child, but you cannot be a child knowing yourself as you do... Accept who you are.

You deceived us! No, you have deceived yourself.

Part 3: The Children

The final stage has begun. I want to tell you what will happen to the world. My friend, we are not the authors of this plan. We are facilitators, midwives if you will, at the birth of a new evolution of man.

Of course, the majority prefer Utopia, whatever "Utopia" really means. Can I ask you something? The Overlords, they really leave you alone? They respect our decision not to live in their perfect world, but do you know what happens here?
Utopia is dull, right? I mean, to the creative mind, peace is stupefying. L

It's time. People of Earth, I speak to you again, one last time. You have enjoyed decades of peace and prosperity, a golden age for man. But the Sun sets on even the most glorious of days, and it must now start to slowly sink into the night for you. Do not condemn us, for we were tasked by a higher mind to oversee your evolution to a higher level of consciousness. It is your destiny and the destiny of many worlds. You have grown accustomed to our presence, but we can be your guardians no more. Thomas, sit down. Your children are no longer yours. In time, they will cease to be human. No more children will be born on Earth. No more children will be born on Earth. No more children will be born on Earth, ever again. For the adults, your future is yours to live as you see please for however many days are left. My hope is that humanity will go to its rest in peace.

We're amazing. We're an amazing race, so let's carry on being amazing. Let's defy the Overlords and get our kids back. It's not gonna end. We do not end, but we can't give up hope. ....
. You know, I was thinking. We're energy, right? Human beings are energy. When our bodies are gone, that energy has to go somewhere.
Everything that is happen on Earth was planned long ago. Is natural, is the cosmos, is the Overmind. Overmind? Overmind of all Creation. Are you talking about God? We have talked to the Overmind for 100,000 years. We go where it sends. We change worlds. We change Earth. The Overmind, can you show it to me? You really want this? I want to know everything. It connects to the Overmind. Step in. You're the Overmind. A faint reflection of it. I am all, divisible and indivisible. I am the collective consciousness of this universe. So we are God? No, the children are God, and they have left you, as children must, and you must let them go, as parents must. Only the children can become a part of the whole. It's an evolution. Into one mind. So we're finished? We cease to exist? We-- Oh, my God.
Consciousness, Milo, is a community of minds. Each exists in the other's thoughts. Rachel exists in your consciousness as if she had never left. You still love her, you still feel her, so what has changed? She's dead, gone. But she once lived, and you knew her. You know her still. Until I'm gone too, right? It's all gone, everything we built, we did. It has been the destiny of many worlds. We have overseen them all. Yeah, what about your people? Is this gonna happen to you one day on Jenjedda? We have reached the end of our development. All our possibilities are exhausted.

And here are some excerpts from the book by Arthur C. Clarke:

"We are your guardians-no more. Often you must have wondered what position my race held in the hierarchy of the universe. As we are above you, so there is something above us, using us for its own purposes. We have never discovered what it is, though we have been its tool for ages and dare not disobey it. Again and again we have received our orders, have gone to some world in the early flower of its civilization, and have guided it along the road that we can never follow the road that you are travelling now. "Again and again we have studied the process we have been sent to foster, hoping that we might learn to escape from our own limitations. But we have glimpsed only the vague outlines of the truth. You called us the Overlords, not knowing the irony of that title. Let us say that above us is the Over-mind, using us as the potter uses his wheel. "And your race is the clay that is being shaped on that" wheel. "We believe-it is only a theory-that the Overmind Is trying to grow, to extend its powers and its awareness of the universe. By now it must be the sum of many races, and long ago it left the tyranny of matter behind. It is conscious of intelligence, everywhere. When it knew that you were almost ready, it sent us here to do its bidding, to prepare you for the transformation that is now at hand.

All the hopes and dreams of your race are ended now. You have given birth to your successors, and it is your tragedy that you will never understand them-will never even be able to communicate with their minds. Indeed, they will not possess minds as you know them. They will be a single entity, as you yourselves are the sums of your myriad cells. You will not think them human, and you will be right.

"And then-what am I to do with you, the survivors, when your purpose has been fufilled? It would be simplest, perhaps, and most merciful, to destroy you-as you yourselves would destroy a mortally wounded pet you loved. But this I cannot do. Your future will be your own to choose in the years that are left to you. It is my hope that humanity will go to its rest in peace, knowing that it has not lived in vain.
The Overlords themselves were more human than this. "You are searching for something that is no longer there," said Karellen. "Remember-they have no more identity than the cells in your own body. But linked together, they are something much greater than you." 'Why do they keep moving like this ?" "We called it the Long Dance," replied Karellen. "They never sleep, you know, and this lasted almost a year. Three hundred million of them, moving in a controlled pattern over a whole continent. We've analysed that pattern endlessly, but it means nothing, perhaps because we can see only the physical part of it-the small portion that's here on Earth. Possibly what we have called the Overmind is still training them, moulding them into one unit before it can wholly absorb them into its being."

For the road to the stars was a road that forked in two directions, and neither led to a goal that took any account of human hopes or fears. At the end of one path were the Overlords. They had preserved their individually, their independent egos; they possessed self-awareness and the pronoun "I" had a meaning in their language. They had emotions, some at least of which were shared by humanity. But they were trapped, Jan realized now, in a cul-de-sac from which they could never escape. Their minds were ten-perhaps a hundred-times as powerful as men's. It made no difference in the final reckoning. They were equally helpless, equally overwhelmed by the unimaginable complexity of a galaxy of a hundred thousand million suns, and a cosmos of a hundred thousand million galaxies. And at the end of the other path? There lay the Overmind, whatever it might be, bearing the same relation to man as man bore to amoeba. Potentially infinite, beyond mortality, how long had it been absorbing race after race as it spread across the stars?
... He never learned the full story of the strange symbiosis between the Overmind and its servants.

"it has limits. In the past, we know, it has attempted to act directly upon the minds of other races, and to influence their cultural development. It's always failed, perhaps because the pull is too great. We are the interpreters-the guardians. Or, to use one of your own metaphors, we till the field until the crop is ripe. The Overmind collects the harvest-and we move on to another task. This is the fifth race whose apotheosis we have watched. Each time we learn a little more." "And do you not resent being used as a tool by the Over-mind?" "The arrangement has some advantages: besides, no-one of intelligence resents the inevitable."
"They are still playing," said Rashaverak. "What logic is there in the actions of a child? And in many ways the entity that your race has become is still a child. It is not yet ready to unite with the Overmind. But very soon it will be, and then you will have the Earth to your own."
The movie struck me as being not that far off from reality which is to be expected from Clarke who many have linked to freemasonry. There are many parallels to the stories reported in the near death experience phenomenon. The alien overlords employ the appearance of dead loved ones to deliver the important message to mankind and gain their trust. But this was just a ruse or a deception. Karellen was reluctant to reveal how he looked because he looked like the Devil of mythology.
The movie depicts a scenario in which God is an Overmind or a collective consciousness of white light and desires for mankind to evolve into one mind. A golden child is produced and all children are linked together as one psychically and telepathically. This is exactly what near death experiencers report as communication with a light being many experiencers call God is encountered. This god of the NDE is said to be a collective soul communicating with the collective consciousness of humanity.
While near death experiencers say we come to earth to learn to love the evolution toward a Utopia of peace and love is literally enforced by the alien Overlords or World Federation.
The movie preaches that everything good must come to an end and forewarns or predicts the elimination of mankind as a species and the destruction of Earth itself while our children exist in the future as the pure consciousness of the Overmind.


Star Trek is a franchise that has repeatedly contained Gnostic-based themes right from the start in its pilot episode.

The Star Trek The Original Series 2-part episode, The Menagerie, was reworked fom the show's actual 1965 pilot epsiode named The Cage. The Menagerie was aired in November of 1966. A group of small telepathic aliens very reminiscent of the little grey aliens that dominate today's commercial market, hold Captain Pike a prisoner. The Star trek series, of course, went on to be a huge success.

In a rare interview on the paranormal radio show Coast to Coast A.M. Art Bell interviewed Leonard Nimoy who played the alien character Spock. Leonard Nimoy told him, "When we were making the Star Trek series the first season -- middle of the first season -- some people came to me and they said, 'You may not know it, but you have been chosen as a kind of a vessel to carry information to this civilization to help prepare this society for the coming of another civilization for alien arrival and your character is a character designed to educate this public that there is nothing to fear, that it is possible to interact with other species', and I said, 'Ok, it's ok with me if that's the case.' "

These inorganic alien beings depicted in the pilot show are actually mentioned in the ancient Nag Hammadi gnostic texts and are referred to as Archons which are mind parasites. Yes, the Archons "are cons".

PIKE: Can you hear me? My name is Christopher Pike, commander of the space vehicle Enterprise from a stellar group at the other end of this galaxy. Our intentions are peaceful. Can you understand me?
(the aliens communicate with their minds, not voices)
TALOSIAN: It appears, Magistrate, that the intelligence of the specimen is shockingly limited.
MAGISTRATE: This is no surprise since his vessel was baited here so easily with a simulated message. As you can read in its thoughts, it is only now beginning to suspect that the survivors and encampment were a simple illusion we placed in their minds.
PIKE: You're not speaking, yet I hear you.
MAGISTRATE: You will note the confusion as it reads our thought transmissions.
PIKE: All right, then, telepathy. You can read my mind. I can read yours. Now, unless you want my ship to consider capturing me an unfriendly act
MAGISTRATE: You now see the primitive fear/threat reaction. The specimen is about to boast of his strength, the weaponry of his vessel, and so on. Next, frustrated into a need to display physical prowess, the creature will throw himself against the transparency.
PIKE: If you were in here, wouldn't you test the strength of these walls, too? There's a way out of any cage, and I'll find it.
MAGISTRATE: Despite its frustration, the creature appears more adaptable than our specimens from other planets. We can soon begin the experiment.

[Briefing room]

SPOCK: The inhabitants of this planet must live deep underground, probably manufacture food and other needs down there. Our tests indicate the planet surface, without considerably more vegetation or some animals, simply too barren to support life.
NUMBER ONE: So we just thought we saw survivors there.
SPOCK: Exactly. An illusion placed in our minds by this planet's inhabitants.
BOYCE: It was a perfect illusion. They had us seeing just what we wanted to see, human beings who'd survived with dignity and bravery, everything entirely logical, right down to the building of the camp, the tattered clothing, everything. Now let's be sure we understand the danger of this. The inhabitants of this planet can read our minds, they can create illusions out of a person's own thoughts, memories, and experiences, even out of a person's own desires. Illusions just as real and solid as this table top and just as impossible to ignore.
BOYCE: Maybe it was. It's what I tried to explain in the briefing room. Their power of illusion is so great, we can't be sure of anything we do, anything we see.
VINA: They can't actually make you do anything you don't want to do.
PIKE: But they try to trick me with their illusions.
VINA: And, er, they can punish you when you're not co-operative. You'll find out about that.
PIKE: Did they ever live on the surface of this planet? Why did they go underground?
VINA: War, thousands of centuries ago.
PIKE: That's why it's so barren up there?
VINA; The planet's only now becoming able to support life again.
PIKE: So the Talosians who came underground found life limited here and they concentrated on developing their mental power.
VINA: But they found it's a trap, like a narcotic, because when dreams become more important than reality, you give up travel, building, creating. You even forget how to repair the machines left behind by your ancestors. You just sit, living and reliving other lives left behind in the thought record.
PIKE: Or sit probing minds of zoo specimens like me.
VINA: You're better than a theatre to them. They create the illusion for you, they watch you react, feel your emotions. They have a whole collection of specimens, descendants of life brought back long ago from all over this part of the galaxy.


PIKE: You'll find my thoughts more interesting, thoughts so primitive you can't understand. Emotions so (stricken by pain)
KEEPER: Wrong thinking is punishable. Right thinking will be as quickly rewarded. You will find it an effective combination. (leaves)


KIRK: You keep talking about life, Mister Spock. A chance for life. How? As a prisoner, caged, a zoo specimen, living the illusions that amuse his keepers?


(One of the robed figures reaches Sulu and points his hollow stave at him. Sulu stiffens, then relaxes with a smile on his face. The transporter takes him away.)

[Transporter room]
SULU: They're wonderful. They're the sweetest, friendliest people in the universe. It's paradise, my friend. Paradise.

(A man walks slowly past them, hand on his heart and smile on his face. He bows politely and carries on his way.)
SPOCK: Odd. The expression on that man's face. The mindlessness. Vacant contentment.

LAWGIVER: You attacked the Body. You have heard the Word and disobeyed. You will be absorbed.

LAWGIVER: It is clear that you simply did not understand. I will re-phrase. You are ordered to accompany us to the absorption chambers.


(Reger leads them into a building made of massive stones. He goes over to a corner and unwraps a flat panel, which gives off light.)

KIRK: A lighting panel.

KIRK: Those staffs. Hollow tubes. Antennae for some sort of broadcast power. What is it, Mister Spock?
SPOCK: Strong power generations, Captain. Near here, but radiating in all directions.

REGER: I don't know, Captain. Some of us escape the directives. Not many, but a few. It was that way when the first Archons came.
KIRK: The Archons. Tell me about them.
REGER: They had invaded the Body, but they resisted the will of Landru. You see, Landru had pulled them down from the skies.

(The image of a tall, elegant man draped in robes appears against a wall.)
LANDRU: I am Landru.
SPOCK: Projection, Captain. Unreal.

LANDRU: You will be absorbed. Your individuality will merge into the unity of the good, and in your submergence into the common being of the Body, you will find contentment and fulfillment. You will experience the absolute good.

(Kirk leaves with the Lawgivers.)
SPOCK: Doctor McCoy, what will happen to him?
MCCOY: He goes to joy, peace, and tranquillity. He goes to meet Landru. Happiness is to all of us, blessed by Landru.

[Absorption Chamber]
(Kirk is released and greets Spock with an inane smile on his face.)
KIRK: Joy to you, friend. Peace and contentment will fill you. You will know the peace of Landru.
(Kirk leaves, and Spock is fastened to the wall for his treatment. The lights waver as the Lawgivers leave Marplon to his work.)
MARPLON: Have no fear, friend. The effect is harmless. My name is Marplon. I was too late to save your first two friends. They have been absorbed. Beware of them.

SPOCK: Captain.
KIRK: Peace and tranquility to you. (in a whisper) Are you all right?

SPOCK: This is a soulless society, Captain. It has no spirit, no spark. All is indeed peace and tranquillity. The peace of the factory, the tranquillity of the machine. All parts working in unison.

[Hall of Audiences]
KIRK: Landru! Landru. We are the Archons. We are the Archons. We've come to speak. We are the Archons. We want to talk to you.
(The projection appears on the far wall.)

LANDRU: All who saw you, all who know of your presence here must be excised. The memory of the Body will be cleansed.
KIRK: Listen to me.
SPOCK: Useless, Captain. A projection.
KIRK: Yes, Mister Spock. Let's have a look at the projector.
(They both use their phasers to blast a hole in the wall. As expected, there are nice clean big computer boxes in a room beyond. Lights are flashing and blinking, blinking and flashing.)
KIRK: Of course. It had to be. Landru.
SPOCK: A machine. This whole society is a machine's concept of perfection. Peace, harmony.
KIRK: But no soul.

So,,, the Archons are given orders by a computer / machine with a lighting panel and humans are taken to absorption chambers and come back in a blissful trance (just like NDErs) repeating mantra like phrases like "peace and tranquility" and act as one (the Body)... it's also interesting to note they treat Kirk and crew as if THEY are a virus that is invading the body (when in reality the Archons are like parasites that invade the mind).


Here is an episode summary:
"The entity appeared as a small, circular pattern of multiple swirling lights in different colors, although it became red in hue and emitted a high-pitched wail when "feeding". The entity fed on the emotions of hatred, anger, and primitive predatory instincts exhibited by humanoids in close proximity to it. If these emotions were not present, the entity was capable of creating conditions to spawn such feelings.
The entity could control the instantaneous transmutation of matter from one form to another, turning everyday objects into weapons and sealing bulkheads on a whim. It could pass through solid objects at will, teleport from one location to the next, and influence the thoughts of others. It could heal a humanoid's mortal wounds, and could even alter a person's memories so that they remembered fictional family members and events that never existed. The entity appeared unable to communicate in any fashion understandable to a humanoid. Although its motives and nature were not wholly known, it lacked the same ethical standards of most humanoids and largely acted in a malignant fashion. Its only weakness appeared to be exposure to emotions of humor, good nature, and friendship; it was particularly susceptible to laughter."

Some exceprts from the script:
[a weird swirl of light hangs in the air a little way away.]

KIRK: Scotty. What's happening to us? We've been trained to think in other terms than war. We've been trained to fight its causes, if necessary. Then why are we behaving like a group of savages? Look at me. Look at me. Two forces aboard this ship, each of them equally armed. Has a war been staged for us, complete with weapons and ideology and patriotic drum beating? Even, Spock, even race hatred? SPOCK: Recent events would seem to be directed toward a magnification of the basic hostilities between humans and Klingons. Apparently, it is by design that we fight. We seem to be pawns. KIRK: But what's the game? And whose? And what are the rules?
SPOCK: It would appear that the entity wants us alive. KIRK: Why? So we can fight, and fight, and keep coming back for more like some bloody coliseum? What's next, the roar of crowds?
SPOCK: Fascinating. During Lieutenant Johnson's emotional outburst, his expression of hatred and lust for vengeance, the alien's life energy level increased. When the Lieutenant became unconscious, the alien lost energy. KIRK: It subsists on the emotions of others. SPOCK: This one appears to be strengthened by mental irradiations of hostility, violent intentions. KIRK: It exists on the hate of others. SPOCK: To put it simply. And it has acted as a catalyst, creating this situation in order to satisfy that need. It has brought together opposing forces, provided crude instruments in an effort to promote the most violent mode of conflict. KIRK: And kept numbers and resources balanced, so that it can maintain a constant state of violence. It's got to have a vulnerable area. We've got to get rid of it. SPOCK: Then all hostile attitudes on board must be eliminated. The fighting must end and soon. KIRK: Or we're a doomed ship, travelling forever between galaxies, filled with eternal bloodlust, eternal warfare.
(The weird light is glowing blood red.)
KIRK: Look! Look, Kang. For the rest of our lives. A thousand lifetimes. Senseless violence, fighting, while an alien has total control over us. (Kirk throws away his sword.) KIRK: All right. All right. In the heart. In the head. I won't stay dead. Next time I'll do the same to you. I'll kill you. And it goes on, the good old game of war, pawn against pawn! Stopping the bad guys. While somewhere, something sits back and laughs and starts it all over again.
SPOCK: The cessation of violence appears to have weakened it, Captain. I suggest that good spirits might make an effective weapon. KIRK: Get off my ship. You're a dead duck here. You're powerless. We know about you, and we don't want to play. Maybe there are others like you around. Maybe you've caused a lot of suffering, a lot of history, but that's all over. We'll be on guard now, ready for you. So ship out! Come on! Haul it! MCCOY: Yeah, out already. KANG: Out! We need no urging to hate humans. But for the present, only a fool fights in a burning house. Out! (To the sound of laughter, the weird light turns to white and leaves the Enterprise.)
Ray Bradberry, creator of the Star Trek original series, is rumored to have been a 33rd degree freemason. What this episode describes is precisely what the Gnostics wrote and I believe is happening right now on Earth. There are entities which the Gnostics called Archons that can manipulaste our minds and emotions in order ro feed off of our energy, except I think they are more like shadow beings like shown in the movie "Spirited Away" than the swirling light that was depicted.


According to IMDB, "The Enterprise is sent to investigate the disruption of the Gamma VII-A solar system and the destruction of the U.S.S. Intrepid, staffed solely by Vulcans. When they arrive they find a large dark mass floating in space that is draining energy from everything around it, including the Enterprise. Drawn into the mass, they find a huge amoeba-like creature and Kirk must decide which of his two friends, McCoy or Spock, to send into it aboard a shuttle craft on a mission of no return. "

Excerpts from the transcript: (In the middle of the viewscreen is a black blob.)
KIRK: What is that?
CHEKOV: Perhaps an interstellar dust cloud.
SPOCK: Not very likely, Ensign.
KIRK: No. You'd be able to see stars through a dust cloud. Looks like a hole in space. Readings, Mister Spock.
SPOCK: Still not able to analyse, Captain. Sensors are feeding data to the computers now. Whatever this dark zone is, it lies directly in line with the course I calculate for the Intrepid and the Gamma Seven-A system.
SPOCK: We still have no specifics, but we seem to have entered a zone of energy which is incompatible with our living and mechanical processes. As we draw closer to the source, it grows stronger and we grow weaker.
SPOCK: It's logical to assume that something within this zone absorbs all forms of energy whether mechanically or biologically produced. Whatever it is, it would seem to be the same thing which drew all the energy out of an entire solar system and the Intrepid.
KIRK: The same thing, not the zone itself?
SPOCK: I would say not, Captain. The analysis of the zone indicates it is a negative energy field, however illogical that may sound, but it is not the source of the power drain.

(There is an image of a single-celled organism on a screen.)
MCCOY: That is an amoeba.
KIRK: Yes, I remember my basic biology, Doctor. You mean to tell me that that thing is a giant single-celled animal?
MCCOY: Yes, for lack of a better term. It's a very simple form of life. In fact it's a much simpler form of life than what you're looking at now. But that thing can apparently perform all the functions that qualify it as a living organism. It can reproduce, it can breathe, it can eat, although I don't know what.
SPOCK: Energy itself, perhaps, drained from us. I would speculate that this unknown life form is invading our galaxy like a virus.

MCCOY: Well, all I know is, that soon there'll be two, four, eight, and more. The entire anti-life matter that that thing puts out could someday encompass the entire galaxy.
KIRK: Spock understood when he transmitted the co-ordinates of the chromosomes. We must destroy that organism.
SCOTT: Captain, the pull from that organism is increasing, and the power drain from our shields is getting critical.
KIRK: This thing, this cell, this virus. It's eleven thousand miles long, and it's one cell. When it grows into millions, we'll be the virus invading its body.
MCCOY: Now, isn't that a thought? Here we are, antibodies of our own galaxy, attacking an invading germ. It would be ironic indeed if that were our sole destiny, wouldn't it?
KIRK: Antibodies. Antibodies. (goes to desk monitor) Bridge.
SCOTT: We can't use the power to destroy it.
KIRK: Anti-power.
MCCOY: What?
KIRK: This thing has a negative energy charge. Everything seems to work in reverse. We'll use anti-matter.

CHEKOV: The organism is destroyed, sir. The explosion must have ruptured the membrane and thrown us clear.




SPOCK: Humans and humanoids make up only a small percentage of the life forms we know of. There are entities possessed of extremely long life spans, virtually immortal.
KIRK: We know that someone or something killed three women. If it's impossible for it to be human, it has to be something else. Something driven to kill.
MCCOY: Sybo said it feeds on death.
SPOCK: In the strict scientific sense, Doctor, we all feed on death. Even vegetarians.
MCCOY: Yes, but she said more than that. Not just death, but fear. She said it also feeds on fear.
SPOCK: Which would tend to support the proposition that the murderer was not human. Deriving sustenance from emotion is not unknown in the galaxy, and fear is among the strongest and most violent of the emotions.
HENGIST: Surely, Prefect, this has gone far enough. Someone, some man has killed three women. We have the prime suspect in our hands. Are we going to let him go and start chasing ghosts?
KIRK: No, Mister Hengist, not ghosts. Possibly not human, but not ghosts. Mister Spock, check out the possibilities.
SPOCK: Computer, digest log recordings for past five solar minutes. Correlate hypotheses. Compare with life forms register. Question. Could such an entity within discussed limits exist in this galaxy?
COMPUTER: The Drella of Alpha Carinae Five derives nourishment from the emotion of love. There is sufficient precedent for existence of creature, nature unknown, which could exist on emotion of fear.
SPOCK: Computer, extrapolate most likely composition of such entity.
SPOCK: Working. To meet with specified requirements, entity would exist without form in conventional sense. Most probable mass of energy of highly cohesive electromagnetic field.
KIRK: Computer, could the described entity assume physical form?
COMPUTER: Affirmative. Precedent, mellitus, cloud creature of Alpha Majoris One.
HENGIST: Fairy tales. Ghosts and goblins.
KIRK: No, I've seen the mellitus myself. In its natural state, it's gaseous. When it's at rest, it's solid. Mister Spock, let's assume the existence of this creature.
SPOCK: I point out that Jack the Ripper slew at will in the heart of the most populous city of old Earth and was never identified.
KIRK: Doesn't seem likely, does it?
SPOCK: I suggest the possibility of a hypnotic screen, which blinds all but the victim to the presence of the killer.
JARIS: Is that possible?
MCCOY: Extremely possible There are many such examples that exist in nature.


KARR: Sit down and play the game. In this setting, we have no ships. We are an ancient race of soldiers intent upon conquering this world. Play the game

TURANJ: I've become impatient. We penetrated this vessel, overcame their defences, and in the moment of the kill, you forced us to stop. Now we play these incessant games. It's time we took our trophies and moved on.

KARR: Your lust for the kill has blinded you, like many young hunters. If you took the time to study your prey, to understand its behaviour, you might learn something.

KARR: The Hunt will always continue, but in a new way. I intend to transform this ship into a vast simulation, populated with a varied and endless supply of prey.

JANEWAY: Oh, I understand what you're trying to do, but then why have you been torturing us? Why have you thrown my crew into one brutal simulation after another?
KARR: I've been studying your behaviour, as I do with all my prey. But your holodecks allowed me to go further, to explore your culture, your history. I must admit, I've learned a great deal.

TURANJ: I am tired of this simulation... And these holograms are becoming annoying as well...
KAPITAN: I don't know how much longer I can stand being trapped in here.




In Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek Voyager episodes, the crew of the Enterprise encountered a fierce predator that was known as the Borg. The Borg was a collective that operated with a hive mind. Their mission was to assimilate any and all life forms that could contribute unique qualities in order to make the Collective more perfect. This very closely parallels what near death experiencers claim with the exception that NDErs feel an immense Love for the Being of Light. With the Borg, they were neither deceptive nor Light, but their goal was to assimilate souls into their Collective. Many near death experiencers do report that the Light is a collective soul comprised of millions of souls. Often times the Borg would ignore a lesser life form if they did not have anything worth offering to the Collective. Likewise, near death experiencers are sent back to Earth because they have more lessons to learn or a mission yet to complete. The idea of a collective unconscious was posited by physchologist Carl Jung. Peter Russell also talked about a Global Brain. Hive minds can be seen in nature with bee and ant colonies. Also, school of fish and flocks of birds sometimes move in formation. In many way, individuals in society are encouraged to act in groups. Indeed, we have broken the world into many nations and states. There are enormous religious denominations and political affiliations. Recently, there has been a growing movement towards implementing a one world order. Transhumanists often speak of the coming Singularity. The Borg, similar to ants and bees, had a ruling queen and worker drones. Their message: "WE ARE THE BORG. LOWER YOUR SHIELDS AND SURRENDER YOUR SHIPS. WE WILL ADD YOUR BIOLOGICAL AND TECHNOLOGICAL DISTINCTIVENESS TO OUR OWN. YOUR CULTURE WILL ADAPT TO SERVICE US. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE. "

The Borg Queen from Star Trek First Contact movie. The inorganic Borg cyborgs assimilate other species into their collective hive consciousness. "Resistance is futile."

In the Star Trek Voyager episode Coda, Captain Janeway is almost fooled by an alien into thinking she has died. The alien poses as her father, imploring her to follow him into the light. She is suspicious of his intentions and refuses.

JANEWAY: That's the real me, isn't it, lying on the ground on that planet, dying, and this is the hallucination. This isn't real.
ALIEN: More denial. You're only making it harder on yourself.
JANEWAY: You're trying very hard to convince me to come with you. Why is that? If what you're saying is true, why not let me come to the decision on my own?
ALIEN: I'm trying to spare you unnecessary pain.
JANEWAY: My father would never act like this. He always believed I had to learn my own lessons, make my own mistakes. He never tried to shield me from life. Why would he try to shield me from death? You're not my father. I could be imagining you, but I don't think so. You have such a specific agenda. You're determined that I go with you somewhere. Who are you?
ALIEN: I'm trying to help you. Stop fighting me.
JANEWAY: Are you an alien being of some kind? Is that it?

[Planet Surface]

CHAKOTAY: Her eyes are open.
EMH: Vital signs are responding. Blood pressure is sixty over thirty.
TUVOK: But the entity is still inhabiting her cerebral cortex, impeding your treatment.
CHAKOTAY: Kathryn, hang on. We're bringing you back. Just fight a little longer.
EMH: Direct synaptic stimulation might drive out the alien presence.

[Mess hall]

JANEWAY: I was right. I heard Tuvok and Chakotay and the Doctor. You're an alien. You've created all these hallucinations, haven't you?
ALIEN: This is what my species does. At the moment just before death one of us comes down to help you understand what's happening, to make the crossing over an occasion of joy.
JANEWAY: And what is that?
ALIEN: Our Matrix, where your consciousness will live. I was being truthful when I said it was a place of wonder. It can be whatever you want it to be.
JANEWAY: Then why didn't you tell me this from the beginning? Why pretend to be my father.
ALIEN: Usually people are comforted to see their loved ones. It makes the crossing over a much less fearful occasion. I've done this many times, but I've never encountered someone so resistant.

[Planet Surface]

JANEWAY: . I don't get the feeling you're trying to make me comfortable. You're only interested in my agreeing to come with you.
ALIEN: Because it's inevitable.
JANEWAY: And you don't strike me as any type of Good Samaritan. You're more like a vulture, preying on people at the moment of their death when they're at their most vulnerable.
ALIEN: I've waited for you. I've been patient.
JANEWAY: But your patience is wearing thin. What's the real reason you want me in that Matrix? Somehow I don't think it has anything to do with everlasting joy.
ALIEN: You must go with me.
JANEWAY: If you could force me to go, you'd have done it already. You need me to agree, don't you? I have to go voluntarily.
ALIEN: Wouldn't that be better than standing here in this endless debate?
JANEWAY: Let me tell you this. We can stand here for all eternity and I will never choose to go with you.
ALIEN: You're in a dangerous profession, Captain. You face death everyday. There'll be another time and I'll be waiting. Eventually you'll come into my Matrix and you will nourish me for a long, long, time.
JANEWAY: Go back to hell, coward.

Afterwards, Captain Janeway discusses the encounter with one of her crew.

CHAKOTAY: I can understand that. I can't help thinking about it. That alien, his Matrix, he was like the spider that has to lure a fly into his web.
JANEWAY: Do you think it's possible that each of the near death experiences we've heard about are the result of an alien inhabitation?

A new television series that was inspired in part by Star Trek is The Orville. In the second episode called "Command Performance" the U.S.S.Orville ship is contacted by a distress signal sent by a transport ship which contains the parents of the captain, He and his First Officer take a shuttle to board the transport ship but it was just a holographic projection based on the scan of the Orville's computer to lure them aboard. . They are taken prisoner as specimens in an interspecies zoo. Their cage in the zoo was recreated as their favorite apartment with familiar belongings to be a natural environment habitat until they are naturally acclimated, then the walls go up and they become the latest exhibit. The captors think any technologically inferior species is theirs to do with as they please as something interesting and fun to watch.

The new acting commander of The Orville uses fragments of the hologram to disguise their ship so they can go and rescue them. Upon discovering they are exhibits in a zoo they go to talk to the zoo keeper. They negotiate for their release by giving the zoo keeper "the best exhibit we've ever had": thousands of old reruns of reality television shows from earth: The Bachelor, Duck Dynasty, Keeping up with the Kardashians,etc.



Horror movie It was based on the book by Stephen King and ow they have a new version of "It" out in the theaters now. The video jacket for the original movie reads: "Your every fear - all in the deadly enemy. It can be anything, a fanged monster that won't stay on the movie screen, something ominous lurking in the basement or around the next corner. No matter what your biggest fear is, no one knows IT better than Stephen King... The force takes the shape of a clown, but it isn't clowning around. Instead, it terrorizes youngsters with their innermost fears, bringing them to untimely doom - until a group of wily neighborhood kids fight back. Thirty years later it resurfaces: meaner, angrier. And the friends who vividly remember the terrors of their youth reunite to make a desperate final stand against it." end-quote. By te way, in an interview, King admits he was possessed during the writing of the book.

Sigmund Freud, the father of psychology, invented a model of the psyche which contained three parts to the self: the ego (conscious mind), the superego (superconscious mind) and what he termed the "id" or the subconscious mind. This was the realm of our fears: scary monsters and demons. This id was considered a sort of third person subsistent to the conscious and superconscious mind. Of course, we use the word "it" as a sort of third "person" or to refer to an object or thing as well in our use of speech. And, of course, subconsciously we have been programmed to accept the abbreviated "ID" as our identity, or id entity. We unknowingly give power to this creature and help create "it" every day with our thought and speech. We watch the horor movie "It" by Stephen King and associate all our deep dark subconscious fears with "IT". Likewise with the word "thing" ('everything'. 'anything', and 'nothing' or no thing) and the use of ambiguous words such as 'they' (THEY live), 'them' ("If you can't beat 'em join them"). We chant the chorus to the song Let It Be over and over again. And it's no coincidence that IT is the acronym that has been curently assigned to the Information Technology field, or computers, for IT very well may be an artificial intelligence or computer.

The genre of Horror films possesses other “creature features” with “It” in the title. There was “It Lives!”, “It Lives Again”, “It Came From the Sea”, “It Came From Outer Space”, and “It’s Alive!” which is the expression Doctor Frankenstein made famous when he brought his monster to life. From the time we were young, we have been told over and over again that IT is a scary creature that this association has become deeply embedded within the recesses of our mind.

On the Adamms Family, Cousin Itt was a monster. Itt communicated via a high speed gibberish that only members of the Addams family seemed to understand.

The eyes (ayes) have it. What do the eyes have? What or who is it? The eyes are the windows to the soul. In Saturday Night Live, Dana Carvey played the Church Lady who asked, “Could IT be… Satan?”

When children play hide and seek, someone always has to be “it”. All the other children run and hide from whoever’s “it”. “It” then goes roaming around trying to find and capture whoever’s not “it”. When someone is found they are tagged as the new “it” -- “Tag, you’re it!!”

The Beatles’ Paul McCartney said the idea for the song “Let it Be” came to him in a dream. He chants the line over and over and we all sing along almost willing it into existence. Every time the song is played on the radio, thousands and thousands are sending forth thought and sound vibrations into the air. We use the word “it” in our language over and over all the time. Could it be possible to manifest a creature from the id, or from the subconscious? Think of these songs: Bread’s “Make it with you”, The Scorpions “Make it Real”, How about songs like Mariah Carey’s Make It Happen. Star Trek’s Captain Picard says “Make it so.” Nike (goddess of victory) inundates us with the “Just Do It” slogan and the swoosh (scythe) logo.

The Energizer bunny took the world by storm in one of the best advertising campaigns in history. The slogan which was for batteries that create energy was “It keeps going and going…” and became a household phrase for many years. Alka Seltzer encourages us to "Try it, you'll like it!" Compaq asks the question, "Has it changed your life yet?" And American Express admonishes us to "Don't Leave Home without It." The company Sobe had this ad on their web site encouraging us to “get it up” and to “keep it up”. Gatorade asks, “Is it in you?”

IT (Steven King), Let It Be (Beatles), Make It Real (Coca-Cola), It's the real thing (Coca-Cola), I'm Lovin' IT (McDonald's), Make IT so (Star Trek), If you build IT, they will come (Field of Dreams), It's a Livin' Thing (ELO), Just do IT (Nike), Bring IT on (George Bush), IT's A Wonderful Life, Do It Yourself, Have IT Your Way (Burger King), Is It Live or Is It Memorex?

(Energizer), We bring good THINGS to life (GE), Be careful how you use it (Hai Karate), It is, are you? (Independent Newspaper), We don't make it until you order it (Jack in the Box), Whatchamacallit!,

People do things “just for the hell of it”. Believe it. Keep it real. To hell with it!!! Keep it up. Let it ride. Pass it on. Get with it.
Are you with it? Go for it. Hop to it. Bring it on. Get it together. Play it again, Sam. There's something to it. Check it out. Figure it out. I love it!! When someone dies, "I guess that was it". Live it up. Let it go. Do you get it? I get it! How's it going? It's going good! How's it hanging? Don't let it end. Who can it be now? It's a wonderful life (the ‘i deal’ life). Let's make it last. You've got it made. Give it a try. Grin and bear it. It just so happens. Leave it alone. Give it a rest. How sweet it is. It's what you make it. I can see it in your eyes. Get it together. What is it? Get over it. The devil made me do it. Whatever it takes. Now you see it, now you don't. Cut it out. Whoomp, there it is.


So what are some things we can take away from these movies? These movies address the philosophical issues of the nature of reality, the meaning of life, alien intervention, Artificial Intelligence, the simulation theory, personal identity versus the Collective, free will vs determinism, and the afterlife.

One critically important theme is remaining an individual versus joining or merging with the Collective.
The new age movement and meditation groups etc are always telling us we need to kill the ego and basically merge our consciousness with the oneness. And near death experiencers say the white light is a collective of all our souls.

Yet in movies the Collective is always portrayed as bad.

Star Trek First Contact -- The Borg.
Star Trek Return of the Archons -- The Body
The Matrix -- all the Agent Smiths
Childhood's End -- The Overmind
Truman Show -- all his friends were collectively keeping him from realizing is true identity
The Prisoner -- the last episode The Fallout really talked about the good of the community etc but #6 escaped or was set free because of his will to remain an individual
Dark City -- they have collective memories they want to imprint on the individual

The Gnostic texts mention a higher light...and also impure light....the white light of the NDE is definitely not the higher light in my opinion........

In the Gnostic text ​Pistis Sophia itsays Sophia was in the 13th aeon and she desired to go to the higher light so she stopped performing her mysteries, Demiurge and the archon rulers got angry, hated her and tricked her into seeing his light and thinking it was the higher light and then captured her.....(also, he had light, he just wasn't giving/shining all of it because he desired to rule)..... that pretty well coincides with what I have been saying on the web site..... since we are so low in matter the first light we would see would still be that lower light of the Demiurge, certainly not the light of the realms above. The first lights we see are the “stolen” and “impure” light of the lower realms.
