I don't know much about an agenda to infiltrate hollywood with messages that would reside and grow in our consciousness, but the idea could be
plausible. Before the movie, in the pre-show, every trailer leading up to the film mentioned the words 'end of the world
', so many trailers
mentioning this casually or under some metaphorical disguise, that I felt very odd. We're almost forced to watch these movies, and listen to this
music today unless we look elsewhere for less mainstream entertainment, but regardless, we see the images of these movies, the trailers, and such
Almost every movie lately has to do with the end of the world or aliens, but then again this has been a trend in hollywood and television for years.
It just seems more-so as of lately.
These are all subtle messages that could mean nothing at all, but it makes one wonder.
Going into Prometheus I had predicted the premise fairly well, and I found there weren't that many plot holes, solely in the context of it being a
quasi-prequel to Alien. In 3-D the film was very well directed and the scenes were absolutely stunning. It left an impression on me that technology
has soared to amazing heights just in the past couple of years alone.
RS said that the story was somewhat based on the Akkadian texts. The scene in the beginning of the movie with the seeding can be related to Geshtu as
an example. While the movie didn't alter my beliefs so much as helped me look at things in a different light (or darkness), I felt that it did a good
job of stirring the question inside of me of "What if humans were created by... humans?" What if Gods did indeed create these "aliens", and what if
they created us? Wait... who created them? And so on.
There's no denying that several archaeological digs and separate mythologies on this planet mirror one another, and though that is just the tip of the
iceberg since we know so very little, that enough allows me to ask the bigger questions like the ones presented in this film. I don't expect an
answer, but I keep looking at our technological feats over the past 100 years in terms of what our future will be like in just a short period of time
given that we don't destroy ourselves or we aren't sent back into into the dark ages due to nature's course or our curiosity, whatever the case we
know very little, and we haven't been around enough to merit the arrogance of saying we do.
The more we press into the future, the more this stuff will wrack our brains, as it could have possibly been intended to. In any case, I have to look
back on the things David-8 said in terms of him being an android. Why did they make us, if they did? Perhaps because they just could, so why wouldn't
we do the same? As we have been with various forms of AI.
