I am going to go ahead and offer my opinion. It is a doozy, but it is what, upon seeing this video, flows from me in a rapid
stream-of-consciousness. I know there are run-on sentences, etc., but I think this captures the perspectives that well up in me during and after
watching and seeing and quickly reflecting upon this video.
This video is definitely a creator of cognitive dissonance. It is on one level very disturbing in its implications, at least from my perspective.
The sounds repeat almost like an unwinding and recoiling effect. It is like the sounds converge in a black hole, sinking down and down with greater
intensity approaching a single infinitesimal point, but never seeming to touch, just fading around.
The humaneque pig, dancing mindlessly, lost in an infinite loop of meaningless repetitive dance, is an extremely gross affront to our sensibilities.
The pig is not the captain of its own free will, but rather subject to the ostensible whims of another, another not necessarily perceived, but
something other nonetheless, because the pig sure as heaven is not in control. The anthropomorphic aspect of the pig leads us to at least
halfheartedly glance at one of our greatest latent fears, that we are nothing but mere beasts, subject only to the Pavlovian response, a higher being
trapped in the cyclical idiocy of a beastly nature. The ouroboros continually swallows us; it judges us, because we have judged others. It lets
selfish destruction wreak havoc, because we as people are allowed to project our demons upon the world, to spread and coalesce into larger, more
powerful, more encompassing demons. It does not show mercy, because we have not forgiven ourselves. Being not a judge of the very being of another,
forgiving others, knowing that we likewise forgive ourselves as well, and stomping on that projector that places all of the shadows we refuse to face
onto another: These things all allow ourselves to throw off the blind spiritual programming shackles that naturally give birth to a whole form, a
whole form that is quite ironically a perfect projection of the corrupt spiritual essence that has thrived in its cannabilistic state for so long,
being fed by the division, the mutual domination and manipulation of the multitudes, working hand in hand.
Edit: Although there are many subliminals, a few of the subliminals are so obvious that I am going to present the following perspective. Don't
worry. I will present another.
All that being said, I am inclined to take the video two ways. One, it does seem rather garish in its display of "subliminals." They could in fact
be seen as not in the least bit subliminal, as it seems to me as if you blended every exploitative subliminal into one thing, you would get something
not unlike the disturbing nature of this clip. So, in this view, this video acts as a shocker, a slap to the face, to get people to actually be aware
of key psychological/mental/spiritual components that easily bleed out to color the entire canvas of their lives.
In taking it my other way, it can be seen as the creation of a haughty, oblivious-to-the-very-concept-of-other-beings, master sort of mentality. This
is a perspective that gains lots and lots of perverse delight from keeping others (viewed to this type as nameless threats to be thwarted and robbed
of their potential) in a lowly position; it is one who defines himself or herself to the extent that he or she denies others. Perhaps a creator of
this sort would not only create this video out of lust for a sadistic Pavlovian response, but out of fear that the fear game resulting from individual
belief in a false image, and all its many memetic offspring, is coming to a close very soon. Desperation leads to sloppy work.
Third take: What we see in it is relevant to our development in some way, at least in the moments that we seek holistic self-development. But what
we see is certainly not confined to the area of our own self-relevance, but it also has implications in the greater picture, as what we all see colors
our world, in any which way, shape, or form.
So, there is my take. Take it to whatever extent that you WILL, OR ignore it altogether, if that is what you WILL. It is our choice to see in it
what we see. I know I saw a lot, and I read both between the lines and within myself, but I do think I might have struck a few chords as to why this
video seems disturbing.
BTW, the dancing pig reminds me of certain dancing Disney characters. Not necessarily anything more or less with regards to this remark.
