As he is going through the tunnel fishes ( which is the pisces sign) jump on his boat and as he is riding thru the tunnel lotus flowers are all
around. Once he leaves the tunnel, the religious strucutes are being demolished. I looked at this as the fall out religion into a more enlightened
period of time.
It is a fair interpretation.
However, if you would notice, at 0:04:08, the "illumination" (fire) takes place under a rendition of the pineal gland, which is even more blatant from
This clearly appeals to to other 'alternate' realms, let's say.
The tunnel is really the mind, and built like it symbolically.
Obviously, the fishes link to the yellow figure itself — as are the egyptian references, btw : we all know the Christ myth is based upon much
ancient references from ancient Egypt, Mythra and many others, as is demonstrated by undeniable proven facts.
The structures of belief being demolished are very clever and can actually change the whole narrative, as long as one dares stepping to another
As I pointed out earlier, let's not forget it all starts with an hypnotized/under the influence goat.
It is not the sole reference and not the only character bathing in it.
Sometimes, focusing on the detailed structure of a leaf literally hides the whole forest the tree belongs to...
Symbols are tools. The narrative may be far simpler than a horde of symbols woven together.
Actually, that's also the very weakness of the narrative. Because symbols are just that: symbols. However, beyond a knowledge, their articulation
can kill a message, an idea, and ultimately, an aim, in that sense that symbols like humans are their own best enemies.
More often than not, like matter and antimatter, they annihilate each other, therefore exposing a linear opposite to what they really mean.
In other words, considering the forest rather than the tree, one gets the complete picture.
In the end, the whole thing actually demonstrates a point and its direct opposite. A zenith/nadir thing.
Most probably, this wasn't at all what the creator intended. It is nonetheless, what remains.
But if you think about it, it is only logical and that may actually be the pure gem to it: art, books, films, music, whatever form of symbolic
expression is out in the wild once leaving its creator's mind. That is how we make of it what we want, each one of us. That is how a song, for
example ends up with a meaning completely twisted and distorted (when not completely opposite) to what its creator intended.
