Hello fellow ATSers'.

Below you will find a picture of the ET Poster as well as Michaelangelo's Birth of Man painting.

Do they have a resemblance? Could there be a subconscious imprinting of Steven Spielberg's intention with the poster of the ET poster.... could his message indicate that from his POV we were created by ET's?



compared to



Second observation is a while ago I saw this picture from far away, and thought it was a brain!

Could Michaelangelo's subconscious imprinting somehow correlate that God is 'within us', or somehow that the idea of 'God' is within the mind only?

What do you think?

Interesting observations!

I believe the brain is spot-on. Good catch - I never put that together.

It is entirely possible that Spielberg was trying to correlate the two images. I haven't read much about him but to judge by the movies he chooses to direct I would say he seems to be slightly obsessed with space and aliens and could quite possibly be an advocate of the Ancient Alien creation theory. I am often surprised at discovering just how many people do subscribe to such beliefs.

As far as the Birth of Man seeming to be brain like in appearance I must say i never really noticed the similarity until you pointed it out. Might there be something more to it? Possibly, but it is also possible that it could be pareidolia playing tricks on our eyes. Since Michaelangelo isn't available for questioning the answer will remain an unsolved mystery!

South America with no TV set or cinema to go to, till 3 years later when I arrived in Australia.. and didn't watch it till late 1980's early 1990... I hope that is specific enough for you.

Pareidolia could very well be the case, although being diagnosed with psychosis - its quite likely, seeing patterns in nearly everything is an everyday hoop to jump through.

I suppose thats why I love the arts

It's saying in a polite manner that everything is within the brain. It also says that the dream, has a dreamer. Very esoteric subtexts.

Very obvious connection Spielberg was trying to make in my opinion, and the brain theory has been around a while and is most likely what he was going for:




Anatomical theories[edit|edit source] Several hypotheses have been put forward about the meaning of The Creation of Adam's highly original composition, many of them taking Michelangelo's well-documented expertise in human anatomy as their starting point. In 1990, an Anderson, Indiana physician named Frank Lynn Meshberger, M.D. noted in the medical publication the Journal of the American Medical Association that the background figures and shapes portrayed behind the figure of God appeared to be an anatomically accurate picture of the human brain.[5] Dr. Meshberger's interpretation has been discussed by Dr. Mark Lee Appler.[6] On close examination, borders in the painting correlate with major sulci of the cerebrum in the inner and outer surface of the brain, the brain stem, the frontal lobe, the basilar artery, the pituitary gland and the optic chiasm.[5] Alternatively, it has been observed that the red cloth around God has the shape of a human uterus (one art historian has called it a "uterine mantle"[7]), and that the scarf hanging out, coloured green, could be a newly cut umbilical cord.[8] "This is an interesting hypothesis that presents the Creation scene as an idealised representation of the physical birth of man. It explains the navel that appears on Adam, which is at first perplexing because he was created, not born of a woman."[9]

Subconscious? No.


Another of Alvin's most famous cinematic posters was his work for Steven Spielberg's 1982 film, E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. Alvin designed the film's iconic poster showing E.T.'s finger touching the finger of his human friend, Elliott, finger tip to finger tip. The fingers create a glow where they touch. The idea for the poster was reportedly suggested by Spielberg, and was inspired by Michelangelo's painting, The Creation of Adam. The E.T. poster was personally important to Alvin. He used his own daughter, Farah Alvin, as the human hand model for the poster.

Sauce.

A lot of artists are trained in art history, and it is fairly common to reference other works or symbolism / encrypt messages in art, actually that increases the value of the art.

I think that whoever made the poster purposefully made the connection and that is what they meant by it! Good find
