Interesting video. Visually stunning with massive amounts of mind bending art mixed with a collage of people in poverty and people in wealth. Always a
juxtaposition that sparks questioning and sets often separated neural paths into contact with one another. As well, I noticed the music which often is
almost meditative or at least conducive to mental relaxation which also allows for our brains to rest and accept information without immediate
While these tools are helpful for individuals to establish their own environment for study, thinking, prayer and other avenues of self guided
expansion, when used in the context of an externally guided information package such as this video, I find it wise hold it at arms length.
I noticed as well that the music chosen for each little segment varied but only with the juxtaposed conditions. When the conditions were presented as
what we do NOT want to see, the poverty the mass movement of mind dead drones, such as the workers being lead to slaughter in the maw of the machine
(from old movies) the music was dramatic and oppressive, helping to make the point that ''we do not like this''
But the message I found over all was the major question of trans humanism. While it offered positions both pro and con on that issue, the over all
message of the video was against trans-humanism. The case it made was compelling and deserves to be considered by all who are interested in this
However what I found lacking in the video was a solution. It mentioned several times that it is up to ''the people''. That it was simple. It is easly.
''All we have to do'' is wake up. This I find to be scary. Very scary.
This idea that we need to wake up is not new. It has been used by new agers now for over a century. Most of those new agers have turned their ideas
into cults or by now, oppressive mini religions that have their followers believing that they are awake while the rest of the world sleeps. As I said,
I find this idea of telling people to ''wake up'' to be dangerous.
At one point in the video it speaks of memes. It touches on memes lightly and to my mind not fully enough. Here I need to observe that one of the
memes that is floating around and given credence from all corners of the political spectrum is the simple meme of '' wake up''......
There is a segment with Icke. I liked him at one time when I first read him a couple of decades ago. At the time I thought that this guy really has a
handle on reality. But then he summed it up with his ''reptilian overlord'' pinpointing of our oppressors. I had to pull back from him at that point.
It seems to me that this is also hinted at in this video. It suggests that there are overlords that are not only now controlling human destiny but
have been the ones to have set us on the course of civilization buy stimulating our left side brains to the detriment of our ability to access the
right side of our brains.
The solutions offered by the video seemed to be of two types. One was the very vague notion that has been used by those on the political left for ages
and more receintly used by those on the right side of that spectrum. Basically it is ''we need to wake up'' and ''we together'' is all we need to toss
off these reigns of oppression. Frankly I am tired of falling for that solution.
The second solution was more specific. It lays in the idea of free energy from carbon, there at the end of the video. What a promise, that little
carbon gizmo that can allow us all to have free energy ''tommorrow'' which then of course will help us break those chains of oppression and reunify
our left and right hemipheres in our brains.
As this video was produced in 2012 there is one more thing I gleaned from it. It was decisivly politically conservative. While I like to give as much
credence as I can to that which comes out of both sides of that scale I noticed that each and every time the villains were depicted visually, it was
always a liberal that was shown. Most specifically Obama. The face of the new world order. The oppressive overseer of the hidden cabals trans-humanist
drive to enslave, or further enslave us all.
Now as I mentioned that could be because in 2012, Obama was president and an easy symbol of all authoritarianism. But it could also be that the whole
video was little more than a new age sounding hit piece on liberals.
Oh, one last thing. That carbon gizmo that would change everything mentioned at the end. That ''key'' to a better future.
Well, now we have potus who claims to be against all things liberal. Against all things that will keep moving us toward a trans-humanist future. If
that little gizmo is as it is presented it seems to me that all Trump needs to do now is to embrace that gizmo, put all national resources into
finishing it's development and productions and '''wa la'' he would have the vote of every conservative and enough from the liberal sector to ensure
his be appointment in 2020 as well as making him the greatest potuse ever. Has he even mentioned it?
Well anyway Many, if you have hung around long enough to read this screed then maybe we can make more observations on this whole issue as I could go
on and on with you and your own observations as for me at least your thread here hits on one of if not the major issue of our existence at this point
