meaning obviously 9/11 is an inside job.
The scapegoat was a goat that was designated (Hebrew לַעֲזָאזֵֽל ) la-aza'zeyl; either "for absolute removal" (Brown-Driver-Briggs Lexicon) or possibly "for Azazel" (some modern versions taking the term as a name) and outcast in the desert as part of the ceremonies of the Day of Atonement, that began during the Exodus with the original Tabernacle and continued through the times of the temples in Jerusalem.
Throughout the year the sins of the Israelites were transferred to the daily animal sacrifices by the blood of the sacrifices. On the Day of Atonement, the tabernacle was cleansed and the High Priest of Israel sacrificed a goat to cleanse and atone for his personal sins in preparation to offer two subsequent goats for the corporate sins of God's people -- Israel. Two goats were chosen by lot: one to be "The Lord's Goat" and offerred as the blood sacrifice for the sins of Israel, and the second goat to be the "Azazel" scapegoat to be cast out into the wilderness bearing the sins of God's people. Leviticus 16. At that time the high priest confesses the sins of the Children of Israel to the God of Israel -- placing those sins on the head of the Azazel scapegoat. The Azazel is then sent into the desert wilderness, thus, the Children of Israel's sins were "atoned for" (paid for) by the scapegoat sacrifices of "The Lord's Goat" and "The Azazel Goat".
In Christian thought, this process prefigures the final judgment by which mankind's sins are judged forever from the universe. Through the final sacrifice of Jesus Christ "The Lord's Goat" at Calvary, the sins of Christ believers are forgiven (atoned and paid for) per the law of atonement as mandated in Leviticus 16 once and for all. Barabas, the murderer chosen to live is also recognized as the "Azazel Goat" who was subsequently cast out into the wilderness. The fact that "unatoned for sins", sins which are not confessed or surrendered by faith in Christ, are on record in the "Books" of heaven (see Revelation 20:12) clearly indicates, at the final judgment, the responsibility for all unforgiven sins (unrepented of sins through lack of faith in Christ) shall be accredited to the individuals who committed and maintained their sins through unrepentance (non-cessation and unatoned for sins).

Nice work Dylan, it definitely is a haunting video. I agree with almost all your interpretations except for:
1) To me Jesus doesn't appear to be in a meditative state but rather a trance-like state. Jesus usually represents the apex of all that is good, the divine within man. This slightly New Age interp I find supported by the fact he is in an Egyptian-style boat (kinda suggests Horus/Thoth - I'm sure you'll understand what I'm getting at). The fact that this is in a trance/slumbering and then wakes up right at the end also sorta fits the theme of the vid.
I whole-heartedly agree. Perhaps my terminology wasn't too accurate. I forget that there are different "levels" of inner contemplation. I used meditative state but it's apparent that it is much deeper than just simple meditation. Thank you for the clarification.
