Its hard to know when your thoughts about any subject begins, or when you really start an alternative search. It might have been some cartoon you saw
and forgot in your early years. Maybe a film or a book. Rarely is it our own parents that suggest it, its more likely a film that hints of a better
reality another dimension where everything is much more fun. For me it was “star wars”, that gave me my first introduction in to another life,
beyond planet earth. Then came close encounters, which included humans and how exciting it all really was. But hold on a sec, I barely remember
watching “a space odyssey”, I was so young I couldn’t understand in the least but found it interesting.
Yes, seeds are interesting, but some seeds take a long time to grow. Now I watch the same movie and I can navigate it with ease and easily pick at
what the writer and director was aiming at communicating. In those days, those movies where fantasy really. You believed them just for the fun of it,
the general feeling was its all good fun for the family. But was it just that?
Nowadays the film industry is almost perfect, in the sense that what you see looks totally real, totally believable. What difference
does that really make? I asked myself. In the old days we had story tellers, but the one that was able to communicate that story the best, in some
ways made it more real in our own minds. So really if we are honest the best way to get a message over, has to be a movie. Not books, not music, not
art,not words, not mathematics nor theatre,nothing comes even near movies. Sure certain people prefer a particular medium, but its the movies that get
the message over in a global way. Not books, for Christ sake so many people hate reading its amazing. Now our minds are so impatient, everything is so
close at hand and fast. If it isn’t it quick it is ignored. I know there will be plenty of people that will say they do their own research in their
own particular way, I am not doubting that. But what I am saying is more about a global perspective rather than an individual view.
That is why I have chosen James Cameron, because he has presented us with human drama in titanic. That was a great way to bond with humanity. Alien
and Abyss as a way to present us with our fears of survival and what aliens might be. Intelligent assassins, kind of like a primitive and yet advanced
killer. Then in Terminator he presents us with robots and androids and a hint at sky net, along with the whole theory of time lines. Not only that
but these machines are able to replicate human form,shape shift and use your image like a puppet, all in one action packed movie So a lot of
information rolled out there in the 90s. Finally we have Avatar and ancient concept revamped, showing us how a body that may seem real can be
manipulated. With a greater knowledge of the locals one could easily mix in with them, even if you were alien to them. One step further, would be to
say you could lead them a little like the hero’s from millenniums before used too. So wherever Cameron got his info from be it the past or the
future, we are sure getting a full revamp of it. So we have two options really is he just projecting his imagination in to us or does he believe it to
be true, or does he know that its true. It could be any of those all mixed in to one, but my last idea covers one of the two options. What if he is
just an Avatar? If you can just believe that for a few moments, it changes the whole ball game. If he is, what is he really up to? Whatever the answer
to that may be, he is truly brilliant at getting his ideas across and into your mind.
