Sarah and I have been talking about the movies recently, so I decided to do a quick little blog picking a few current hits and touching on how they all have very similar underlying themes. It is because of these themes that I have personally taken a stance toward being more conscious about what I decide to take in for the sake of entertainment.
With that in mind, in no particular order… here we go.
Guardians of the Galaxy 2
In this film we have a main character who just happens to go by the name, Star Lord. His companions are trans-human hybrids. Because of the advances in technology, Star Lord is essentially part robot one part removed, meaning he too is trans-human to a degree (just as we are an extension of the internet now, and not the other way around). The bad guy in this movie happens to be Thanos, who in the comic books is essentially depicted as godlike. With that in mind, the premise of this film is that the Star Lord and his band of trans-humans are out to battle a tyrant type god figure.
I recall a star falling from heaven… a star known as the prince of darkness attempting to wage war against a God of justice and wrath while at the same time hoping to place himself as Lord. So heck, why not just call him star lord, right? It’s in the bible people.
Mae Holland (Emma Watson) seizes the opportunity of a lifetime when she lands a job with the world’s most powerful technology and social media company. Encouraged by the company’s founder (Tom Hanks), Mae joins a groundbreaking experiment that pushes the boundaries of privacy, ethics and personal freedom. Her participation in the experiment, and every decision she makes soon starts to affect the lives and futures of her friends, family and that of humanity.
Honestly, I don’t feel like I should have to go any further with this one, but I guess I will. Just look around you. The movies of the 70’s and 80’s paved the way for reality in the 90’s and early 2000’s with shows and movies like Star Trek, Back to the Future, and more…
This film is no different.
It is a glimpse into what is actually coming. We already live in an era where we have very little freedom and privacy left. It is only a matter of time before it is fully taken away from us as we are experimented on, binding with technology, thus becoming trans-human.
If you don’t believe me, just look up the 2045 singularity.
The only way to achieve transcendence is by giving ones “self” over to the hive mind. I hate to break it to you, but there are only two minds. The mind of Christ, and the mind of the Anti-Christ.
It’s that simple.
Ghost in the Shell
Yes, this movie is a spin off from an anime, but that doesn’t matter. Because, yet again… here we are with the same exact theme. The main character is a trans-human hybrid. Not to mention the “illumination” symbolism in the artwork.
In this movie, the new crime is that criminals are hacking into people’s minds… something that can only be done if the 2045 singularity has occurred. And what is the 2045 singularity all about? Transcendence of course.
It all comes down to transcendence. It always does.
But here is the question, why?
Well, you see… in the first book of the bible we have this being that comes to us in the form of a snake and promises that if we rebel against God we will be as unto gods ourselves. He made a promise, and since then has been fooling us into thinking that we are on our way to a promise come true.
This movie is about a man protecting a trans-human, because you know… the X-Men aren’t trans-human or anything. Enough said.
Stringent vegetarian Justine (Garance Marillier) encounters a decadent, merciless and dangerously seductive world during her first week at veterinary school. Desperate to fit in, she strays from her principles and eats raw meat for the first time. The young woman soon experiences terrible and unexpected consequences as her true self begins to emerge.
Basically, here you have a movie promoting the desire to fit in to the hive mind regardless of our convictions. You should want to be in the circle so bad that you let go and give in to temptation. And let’s not mind that last line “true self begins to emerge”.
I don’t know about you, but last I checked Satanism wasn’t the worship of Satan, but rather the worship of self. Not to mention the fact that Christ is all about self control and denying the flesh by following after Christ rather than the Anti-Christ, which encourages us to indulge… which is what this movie is all about.
But hey, what do I know… all of these movies that are constantly coming out are merely meant for entertainment only. They have no underlying messages meant to subconsciously feed us. I am clearly just over thinking things.
But you know… I could go on and on, but why do that. I’m clearly just making this stuff up.
How ignorant of me.
Anyway, keep on keeping on I guess. Give in, fall in line, and transcend into the promises of the Star Lord, Lucifer.
Jesus is an option too, if you were unaware.
