Working at DriveIns and Cinemas growing up I was able to get my hands on a lot of press sheets though, obviously, some came without a ad or a halfr but I couldnt tell you where even one of them is now. All I know is, at one stage, I had thousands. I had press sheets for everything from Back to the Future to Cocoon, The Fly and Die Hard.

They talk about someting called The question…..What is the matrix?

VINA And, er, they can punish you when youre not cooperative. Youll find out about that.

MAGISTRATE You will note the confusion as it reads our thought transmissions.

ALIEN More denial. Youre only it harder on yourself.

Neo Ever had that feeling where youre not sure if youre awake or still dreaming?

Truman Show Moon Grid Jim Carrey plays Truman, a metaphor for the true man. He is living in a lse world, a hoax perpetrated from the Lunar Room, a world within a world.

The Recruit CIA trainer, Al Pacino, emphas, Nothing is what it seems! Note the special training cility at Langley is called The Farm and the CIA logo is a star compass.

Francis Logan, leave it alone. Its perfect. [bumps into a Red] You know, Logan, you wonder a lot, too much for a Sandman.

Logan Run, runner! laughter] He was crazy. He could have renewed on Carousel. Now hes finished forever. Why do they run?

Pan, the Devil, plays a tune on his pan pipes. The Pied Piper is a manyed Piper thats what pied means, manyed and leads the children of god with his pipe nde tunnel into the rock / mountain moon is a rock. And why the name Peter Pan? Petr means rock moon?, also fuel energy source and Pan means all which would be all frequencies combined white. The Devil is known to use a pitch fork to goad souls to Hell. NepTUNE has the trident or pitchfork too. A pitch fork is a tuning fork. So you have a tune or note/frequency and you have a fork which is a many pronged instrument. Think of a fork with seven rays of light or seven prongs and like a fork they all funnel into one like the handle on the fork we eat with, The trident or threepronged pitchfork may symbolize the three s redgreenblue since our eyes have three receptors and all the s of the rainbow can be made with those three s. So all the different s of souls funnel through the tunnel or tunel into the band of white light which is all frequencies combined. Since its all combined it would resonate with every single or frequency of souls… the light is electromagnetic so there could be magnetic resonance like in an MRI. In the television miniseries named Neverland Peter plays his pipe and a huge tunnel opens up. There are literally dozens and dozens of accounts of near death experiencers who report going through a pipe or tunnel, hearing music or tones while in it, experiencing swirling s and feeling a wind as they emerge into the white light, which is the combination of ALL s. Peter Pan could be translated as Father All.

survived the ultimate test so must no longer be referred to as or a number of any kind, he has vindicated the right of the inidual, to be inidual

He grins, and the whole flickers, pixilates and is replaced by Recording ends.

looks like the Sentinels are coming through a tunnel from the Sun

Wendys mother is named Mary, an aspect of Isis. The nurse mother for Wendys mily is Nana moon goddess a dog probably symbolic of Sirius, the binary or trinary dog star. Peter Pan insists the second star on the right and then straight on til morning will take you to Neverland. They fly past the moon, to a bell tower with an orange clock time is , Sirius usually rises in August representative of our sun which causes time and is a stargate. So they pass through the stargate of our Sun and then they go past a bridge gateway, stargate, pipe along the Milky Way river to the second star on the right which is smaller. This may very well be the dwarf companion of Sirius in the Pleaides constellation. This is the meaning of Snow White Sirius and the seven dwarves which are the seven sisters of the Pleiades. Peter Pan keeps calling him a cod fish. The letter G evolved from C so its possible god looked like a cod fish. Captain Cook while fighting Peter Pan says he is no mere mortal but a flying devil. Peter Pan is from Sirius, the dog star, but he sails souls into the moon to reincarnate them on Earth. Peter is from Sirius but as the pagan nature god and mountain king lives in a tree underground just like the Celtic trickster moon god, Gwydion, and is associated with Celtic traditions such as the Green Man or JackintheGreen. It is also interesting that there are movies such as Pans Labyrinth that show Pan presiding over an underground labyrinth.

Media mogul Ted Turner thinks so and believes movies ignite violent behavior like a tinderbox. He explains

matrix he is telling neo about the matrix from a clear/white void the construct or loading program….can load anything…training side a computer program…mental projection of your digital self…

During a game of hideandseek, one of the Athosian children inadvertently releases a dark entity. And when Atlantis goes through a series of technical malfunctions, the team realizes that the shadowy creature is actually feeding off of the power supply!

Hold onto your breath, Hold onto your heart, Hold onto your hope.

LAWGIVER You attacked the Body. You have heard the Word and disobeyed. You will be absorbed.

When she crosses over the rainbow into munchkinland dmt elves or archons? they say she fell from a star lucifer/sophia? and they make a big deal about saying she is dead….. so she is dead and went through the tunnel into this place. Before they get to the Emerald City the wicked witch has used poppies to drug them and put a spell on them. No one has seen the great Oz…. he projects himself as a green headed looking alien.

one compassionate actor in the show, trumans love interest, secretly tells him, everybody knows everything you do everybodys pretending… this….its ke its all for you everything is all for you…the sea, the sand, the sky….its all a set, its a show

Flynn goes missing and Sam enters the video game in search of him. He is given an identity disc were everything he does and learns is imprinted on the disc.

Atlantis The crystal thrives on the collective emotions of all who came before us. In return it provides power, longevity, protection. As it grew, it developed a consciousness of its own… but its power grew too great to control. It overwhelmed us and led to our destruction… If she remains bonded to the crystal, she could be lost to it forever.

DOCTOR Im doing what everybody does when the world is in danger. Im calling the Doctor. Pressing send.

you have to let it all go….fear, doubt and disbelief…free your mind

CHAKOTAY Fight it, Kathryn, just a little longer.

SPOCK Humans and humanoids make up only a small percentage of the life forms we know of. There are entities possessed of extremely long life spans, virtually immortal.

KIRK No, Mister Hengist, not ghosts. Possibly not human, but not ghosts. Mister Spock, check out the possibilities.

Still have no idea what they want or where they have come from, as they have made no replies to any attempts to contact them. My name is Karellen. Im the supervisor for Earth. Theres no need to be afraid. My name is Karellen. Im the supervisor for Earth. I know that this is frightening and bewildering. Please try to understand that weve come a long, long way to help you. Annabel? Weve come to help mankind. War, mine, inequality… these will be things of the past. Suffering will end. Injustice will end. No tears, only happiness and safety. Your national and local governments will still have jurisdiction. You will run your water and power. Your stores will be open. Your markets will trade. Your lives will continue as before minus one thing. Injustice. This wont happen overnight, but the process is already beginning. It will herald the arrival of the golden age of man.

Actor Kevin Bacon, who starred in the movieHollowManhas projected characters who are homouals, rapists, occult initiates, liars and thieves, and attributes his successful acting to what he callsdemons under the suce, and as an actor you have to keep them bubbling.

Star Trek Voyager In theStar Trek VoyagerepisodeCoda, Captain Janeway is almost fooled by an alien into thinking she has died. The alien poses as her ther, imploring her to follow him into the light. She is suspicious of his intentions and refuses.

Arab residents are mingling with Jewish residents. They didnt actually resurrect the dead. They appear to us as beloved deceased relatives.

The wizard at the beginning named Vitruvius with the long white hair, bronze skin and hypnotic, lightning eyes, a robe, and a staff with a transparent blue crystal and later a green one in the shape of the Moon Stones. he is a dead ringer for the Demiurge lse god, at least the one my friend encountered in his NDE. He is also blind just as the Demiurge is in gnostic s. He tells Emmet he is The Special and that with the help of the strange piece he found he will save the world.

CHAKOTAY I can understand that. I cant help thinking about it. That alien, his Matrix, he was like the spider that has to lure a fly into his web.

MOY Extremely possible There are many such examples that exist in nature.

The Lord of the Underworld originally was perhaps symbolic of the Egyptian God of the Underworld, Osiris, the Green Man, but as lord of the underworld he resembles something more like a black sun.

In the movie The Truman Show the True Man show, Truman Burbanks whole life in Seahaven is staged and phoney. His whole world, including the sun and moon, is a gigantic set inside a large dome controlled from the moon. By the way the Egyptian equivalent for Satan is named Set! Could it be that true man is inside a vast dome and that our world is controlled from a base on the moon? Truman, trying to conquer his fear and escape, sets sail for blue sky only to collide into a giant wall. This movie was hailed by critics as original and daring. Why? Because it contains our true origins and is daring to tell us the truth? One of the movies producers is a Rothschild, the mily that started the European banking dynasty.

Keep straight ahead for the most glorious place

the second revolutionary being held prisoner is , an eslished successful secure member of the eslishment turning opun the hand that feeds him, he is brought back to life and tells the

The entity appeared as a small, circular pattern of multiple swirling lights in different s, although it became red in hue and emitted a highpitched wail when feeding. The entity fed on the emotions of hatred, anger, and primitive predatory instincts exhibited by humanoids in close proximity to it. If these emotions were not present, the entity was capable of creating conditions to spawn such feelings.

I think thats it over there. Im headed that way myself. Would you like to join me?


So what are some things we can take away from these movies? These movies address the philosophical issues of the nature of reality, the meaning of life, alien intervention, Artificial Intelligence, the simulation theory, personal identity versus the Collective, free will vs determinism, and the afterlife.

Movies are powerful. Good or bad they tinker around inside your brain. They steal up on you in the darkness of the cinema to form or conform social attitudes…In short, cinema is propaganda.

So,,, the Archons are given orders by a computer / machine with a lighting panel and humans are taken to absorption chambers and come back in a blissful trance just like NDErs repeating mantra like phrases like peace and tranquility and act as one the Body… its also interesting to note they treat Kirk and crew as if THEY are a virus that is invading the body when in reality the Archons are like parasites that invade the mind.Here is an episode summary

The of a tall, elegant man draped in robes appears against a wall.LANDRU I am Landru.SPOCK Projection, Captain. Unreal.

rocky underground cave, hollowed out base with what looks like mainframe computers running it all the moon?

The rest of him dissolves into pixels, and he disappears.DOCTOR The Veritas tells of an evil demon who wants to conquer the world. But to do it, he needs to learn about it first. So he creates a shadow world, a world for him to practise conquering, full of shadow people who think theyre real.

When members of the team show signs of an unusual infection, it is discovered to be caused by a nanite virus, which induces hallucinations and then death due to brain hemorrhage. Can the deadly technology be stopped before it cuts down the entire city?

Then I started thinking, when they put one of you in our heads, do we still exist? Trapped in there? If our memories are still alive, are we? You gotta believe some people wouldnt go down without a fight.

SPOCK We still have no specifics, but we seem to have entered a zone of energy which is incompatible with our living and mechanical processes. As we draw closer to the source, it grows stronger and we grow weaker.

WEIR So we need to figure out exactly what it is and what to do about it.

I talked with him… with Karellen. Whatwhat did he say? Whatwhat did he look like? I dont know. I didnt I didnt see him cetoce… Uh, I was taken up to meet with him… uh, Karellen, and I was not permitted to see him… physically, uh, although I could tell that, in speaking to him, he seemed to be compassionate.

VINA But they found its a trap, like a narcotic, because when dreams become more important than reality, you give up travel, building, creating. You even forget how to repair the machines left behind by your ancestors. You just sit, living and reliving other lives left behind in the thought record.

Francis [Asks a girl sitting close by for more room] Would you mind? Thanks a lot.

SPOCK This is a soulless society, Captain. It has no spirit, no spark. All is indeed peace and tranquillity. The peace of the ctory, the tranquillity of the machine. All parts working in unison.

TUVOK But the entity is still inhabiting her cerebral cortex, impeding your treatment.

The very first frame of this brilliant scifi classic from the s begins with this proction Sometime in the rd century… the survivors of war, overpopulation and pollution are living in a great domed city, sealed away from the forgotten world outside. Here, in an ecologically balanced world, mankind lives only for pleasure, freed by the servomechanisms which provide everything. Theres just one catch Life must end at thirty unlessrebornin the fiery ritual ofCarousel.

Dark City they have collective memories they want to imprint on the inidual

VINA Youre better than a theatre to them. They create the illusion for you, they watch you react, feel your emotions. They have a whole collection of specimens, descendants of life brought back long ago from all over this part of the galaxy.

human beings as a species define their reality though misery and suffering ..the perfet world …you kept trying to wake up from

The Burning Man Festival is a festival which takes place every year in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. A man in effigy is sacrificed.

An alien presence is hidden in the craters on the back/dark side of the moon.

Notice how the reviewers reviewed the movie Half Moon? Magical and Breathtaking. There is magic associated with the moon and it is breathtaking or kills you.

LANDRU All who saw you, all who know of your presence here must be excised. The memory of the Body will be cleansed.KIRK Listen to me.SPOCK Useless, Captain. A projection.KIRK Yes, Mister Spock. Lets have a look at the projector.They both use their phasers to blast a hole in the wall. As expected, there are nice clean big computer boxes in a room beyond. Lights are flashing and blinking, blinking and flashing.KIRK Of course. It had to be. Landru.SPOCK A machine. This whole society is a machines concept of perfection. Peace, harmony.KIRK But no soul.

they keep talking about the light grid system being a digital frontier to reshape the human condition

In the television series Babylon , the main character, the human John Sheridan, is under the care of the Minbari who are ruled by a Grey Council. The nine members of the council stand in circle, their backs to the darkness and their ce to the light, so as to stand in the Grey.

JANEWAY And you dont strike me as any of Good Samaritan. Youre more like a vulture,preyingon people at the moment of their death when theyre at their most vulnerable.

Hollywood insider, David Puttnam, the producer for the films The Mission and Chariots of Fire, admits movies can be used as propaganda tools

The horror of televisionis that the information goes inIt goes right into our memory pool and perhaps we react to it later but we dont know what we are reacting to. When you watch television you are training yourselfso later on, youre doing things without knowing why youre doing them or where they came from.

While near death experiencers say we come to earth to learn to love the evolution toward a Utopia of peace and love is literally enforced by the alien Overlords or World Federation.

McKAY Well, I only know one thing for sure, and that is that flying darkness that needs energy can only be very, very bad.McKAY Well, I havent read all the notes but what I do know is that the entity is energy. It feeds on energy. Fords lucky. I mean, the more it feeds, the bigger it gets; the bigger it gets, the more charged it becomes and the more deadly it will be.McKAY Well, it seems that way. As I suggested, the entitys whats been causing most of our technical problems. Now, it was captured for observation. The Ancients were researching ascension.

he sees millions of humans hooked up to machines….he gets unplugged and goes through a tunnel…Morpheus welcome to the real world

Francis Good! [laughs] Look at the crowd. Good Carousel tonight.

TURANJ Ive become impatient. We penetrated this vessel, overcame their defences, and in the moment of the kill, you forced us to stop. Now we play these incessant games. Its time we took our trophies and moved on.

CHEKOV The organism is destroyed, sir. The explosion must have ruptured the membrane and thrown us clear.

My Uncle Joey kept pigs. Irish Grazers. He used to hire a local choirboy to sing to them as they were loaded onto the truck, and these pigs, they loved it. They were so peaceful all the way to the slaughterhouse.

These inorganic alien beings depicted in the pilot show are actually mentioned in the ancient Nag Hammadi gnostic s and are referred to as Archons which are mind parasites. Yes, the Archons are cons. Researcher John Lash has written extensively about them.

Star Trek Voyager Coda Captain Janeway discusses her near death experience in which an alien being masqueraded as her ther, attempting to lure her into its matrix of light where she would be a source of nourishment. This causes her to wonder if all near death experiences arent really just alien encounters.

KIRK No. Youd be able to see stars through a dust cloud. Looks like a hole in space. Readings, Mister Spock.

All the people of the universe were once free to mingle and travel and build, but Lord Business was confused by Chaos and put walls between all the worlds, became obsessed with order and perfection, and stole the kragle krazy glue which has a tentacle arm that causes everyone to get stuck together and prevents them from building things with their ideas. Its a machine to control the universe.

[Street]A man walks slowly past them, hand on his heart and smile on his ce. He bows politely and carries on his way.

I call them Strangers. They abducted us and brought us here. This city, everyone in it is their experiment. They mix and match our memories as they see fit, trying to ine what makes us unique. One day, a man might be an inspector. The next, someone entirely different. When they want to study a murderer, for instance, they simply imprint one of their citizens with a new personality. Arrange a mily for him, friends, an entire history… even a lost wallet. Then they observe the results. Will a man, given the history of a killer, continue in that vein? Or are we, in ct, more than the sum of our memories? This business of you being a killer was a sad coincidence. You have had dozens of lives before now. You happened to wake up while I was imprinting you with this one. Why are they doing all this? It is our capacity for iniduality our souls that makes us different from them. They think theyll find the human soul if they understand how our memories work. They have collective memories. They share one group mind. Theyre dying. Their race is on the brink of extinction. They think we can save them. Where do I fit in? Youre different. You resisted my attempt to imprint you. Somehow you have developed their ability to Tune. That is how they change things, how they built this city. They have machines buried beneath the suce that allow them to focus their telepathic energies. They control everything here, even the sun. Thats why its always dark. They cant stand the light. Why do they need you? When they first brought us here, they extracted what was in us and stored the information, remixed it like paint and gave us back new memories of their choosing. But they still needed an artist to help them. I understood the human mind better than they ever could, so they allowed me to keep my skills as a scientist… because they needed them. They made me delete everything else. Can you imagine what its like to erase your own past?

Eddy Manson, a popular composer for motion pictures stated this social reform is accomplished through manipulation, stating

The team discovers a primitive, forestdwelling tribe that has been untouched by the Wraith for centuries. Unaware of the electromagnetic field that protects them from the Wraiths technology, the tribe believes that ritual suicide at the age of twentyfive keeps the Wraith at bay.

Magic wands were always made out of the wood of a Holly tree. Its made out of Holly wood. Hollywood is a Druidic eslishment and the symbols, the words, the terms, the stories, aredesigned. Jordan Maxwell

One critically important theme is remaining an inidual versus joining or merging with the Collective.

SHEPPARD When you shut it down, the whole … whatever it was, it just went away.

S [Looks at left palm, then to Francis] Dont forget, were both on Monitor tonight. [Logan, Francis and S laugh]

Buffy the Vampire Slayers supervising producer, Marti Noxon, alludes to extent of deception that goes on

Neo goes through the door of light and returns to the source where he meets the architect, a Demiurgic figure who created the matrix. He is white haired and wearing a business suit and extremely serious. There are hundreds to thousands of computer screens showing different parts of Neos lives including his reactions to meeting the Architect ..he calls Neo an anomaly of a harmony of mathematical precision …says this is the th version of the matrix. Neo deduces the problem is choice. Those who refuse the program pose a threat to the system. He says Neo must return to Source and to comply with his orders and ilure to do so would result in the annihilaton of all humans, .Neo says he wont annihilate all human beings because he needs them to survive. The Architect says Neos love and emotion and attachment to his love, Trinity, will blind him

The Overlords themselves were more human than this. You are searching for something that is no longer there, said Karellen. Rememberthey have no more identity than the cells in your own body. But linked together, they are something much greater than you. Why do they keep moving like this ? We called it the Long Dance, replied Karellen. They never sleep, you know, and this lasted almost a year. Three hundred million of them, moving in a controlled pattern over a whole continent. Weve analysed that pattern endlessly, but it means nothing, perhaps because we can see only the physical part of itthe small portion thats here on Earth. Possibly what we have called the Overmind is still training them, moulding them into one unitbefore it can wholly absorb them into its being.

PIKE If you were in here, wouldnt you test the strength of these walls, too? Theres a way out of any cage, and Ill find it.

Dr. Eric Peper, a researcher who has studied the influence of film, feels television can be used as a training tool

In Star Trek The Next Generation and Star Trek Voyager episodes, the crew of the Enterprise encountered a fierce predator that was known as the Borg. The Borg was a collective that operated with a hive mind. Their mission was to assimilate any and all life forms that could contribute unique qualities in order to make the Collective more perfect. This very closely parallels what near death experiencers claim with the exception that NDErs feel an immense Love for the Being of Light. With the Borg, they were neither deceptive nor Light, but their goal was to assimilate souls into their Collective. Many near death experiencers do report that the Light is a collective soul comprised of millions of souls. Often times the Borg would ignore a lesser life form if they did not have anything worth offering to the Collective. Likewise, near death experiencers are sent back to Earth because they have more lessons to learn or a mission yet to complete. The idea of a collective unconscious was posited by physchologist Carl JJung. Peter Russell also talked about a Global Brain. Hive minds can be seen in nature with bee and ant colonies. Also, school of fish and flocks of birds sometimes move in formation. In many way, iniduals in society are encouraged to act in groups. Indeed, we have broken the world into many nations and states. There are enormous religious denominations and political affiliations. Recently, there has been a growing movement towards implementing a one world order. Transhumanists often speak of the coming Singularity. The Borg, similar to ants and bees, had a ruling queen and worker drones. Their message WE ARE THE BORG. LOWER YOUR SHIELDS AND SURRENDER YOUR SHIPS. WE WILL ADD YOUR BIOLOGICAL AND TECHNOLOGICAL DISTINCTIVENESS TO OUR OWN. YOUR CULTURE WILL ADAPT TO SERVICE US. RESISTANCE IS FUTILE.

Popcorn pictures have always ruled. Why do people go see these popcorn picturesWhy is the public so stupid?I just understood what people liked to go see, and Steven [Spielberg] has too, and we go for that.

SPOCK In the strict scientific sense, Doctor, we all feed on death. Even vegetarians.

One of the main characters, Sol, tries to warn the rest of humanity that their food, Soylent Green, is made of people and quips that Its people. Soylent Green is made out of people! Theyre our food out of people. Soon theyll be breeding us like cattle! The pun here is that Sollent green is people. In other words, our green ectoplasm is lent to the sun, Sol.

KARR Sit down and play the game. In this setting, we have no ships. We are an ancient race of soldiers intent upon conquering this world. Play the game

JANEWAY My ther wouldneveract like this. He always believed I had to learn my own lessons, make my own mistakes. He never tried to shield me from life. Why would he try to shield me from death? Youre not my ther. I could be imagining you, but I dont think so. You have such a specific agenda. Youre determined that I go with you somewhere. Who are you?

Dr. Lesh It is it is a way out, but not for her. Tell her, quickly.

EMH Direct synaptic stimulation might drive out the alien presence.

MONK You suffer. Pain is information. Information will be gathered.

HENGIST Surely, Prefect, this has gone r enough. Someone, some man has killed three women. We have the prime suspect in our hands. Are we going to let him go and start chasing ghosts?

The Wizard of Oz essentally contains the formula for how to escape this matrix and return home Dorothy, clicking her heels, and repeating over and over again like a mantra Theres no place like home. In order to return home we definitely do need to maintain a continual focus on raising our frequency, almost like repeating a mantra.

KIRK Spock understood when he transmitted the coordinates of the chromosomes. We must destroy that organism.

Steven Spielberg demonstrates the unscrupulous attitude prevalent among todays directors

Do you want to know what it is? The matrix is everywhere/ Its all around us …it is the world that as been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth…that you are a slave Neo, Like everyone else you were born into bondage, born into a prison that you cannot smell or taste or touch. A prison for your mind,

PIKE So the Talosians who came underground found life limited here and they concentrated on developing their mental power.

The Oracle says she didnt know but she believed.

The uncaptured master builders such as Lucy, Batman, The Special etc are able to manifest reality instantly with their ideas and visions. Special has an idea to build a spaceship to infiltrate the tower which has a laser gate. They build one with a hyper drive.

According to Orlin, ascended beings can be empowered by massive numbers of humans worshipping them. The Ori bricated an entire religion, Origin, based on the lse promise of ascension in order to take power from their followers. The Ancients refrain from interfering in the lower planes of existence because manipulating and aligning lower life forms could result in exactly this of corruption.[] According to the Ancient Myrddin, the Ori had the best intentions when they began.[] Even after the Ori were destroyed, their followers and Priors continued acting in their name to oppress thousands of people since, for the most part, they were ignorant to the demise of their Gods.

Francis Some of our guys are on Carousel tonight, and Sandmen always renew, I know.

I died with my eyes open, saw the masters who pull our strings.

Even though the prophecy was made up by Vitruvius and was a placebo, it worked because Emmet believed. Once he believes he can see everything and becomes a master builder. He travels through a magic portal and saves the world. He learns that the key to true building is to believe in yourself and to follow your own set of instructions inside your head.

men who represent specific forms of revolt are in cylindrical tubes beneath the suce in what look like crater holes …the judge keeps repeatedly telling one man to confess but the man is speaking nonsensical crazy jibberish like a lunatic representing youth rebeling against the accepted norm but revolt must be abolished for the common good of society

Trinity I brought you here to warn you. Theyre watching you, Neo.

Francis Well, why not? Thats exactly how everything works. It keeps everything in balance. One isterminated, one is born. Simple, logical, perfect. You have a better system?

The Star Trek The Original Series part episode, The Menagerie, was reworked fom the shows actual pilot epsiode named The Cage. The Menagerie was aired in November of . A group of small telepathic aliens very reminiscent of the little grey aliens that dominate todays commercial market, hold Captain Pike a prisoner. The Star trek series, of course, went on to be a huge success.

The ancient druids would sacrifice animals and men to the Sun in order to appease its anger and assure a good bumper of crops that Spring. This is reenacted in the film starring Christopher Lee.

KIRK This thing, this cell, this virus. Its eleven thousand miles long, and its one cell. When it grows into millions, well be the virus invading its body.

the demiurgic figure, named Cristof, finds him and calls up the weather program causing a storm which caps the boat. Truman barely holds on to survive. Once the storm is over truman sails for blue skies but literally runs into a wall at sea… the boundary of the movie set and his world.

Afterwards, Captain Janeway discusses the encounter with one of her crew.

Futurama In this cartoon made by the creators ofThe Simpsons, characters are watching the TV show,The Real World. The commentator states, This week on TheReal WorldTHE SUN. A man is heard screaming, AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH Im burning todeath! We know it is not the sun screaming because one of the characters watching the show snidely remarks in disgust, Do you know how much an apartment that big would cost on the sun?

Emmet a.k.a. The Special is a normal average blank guy not a master builder but is really everyone. At first the Special just follows all the rules and obeys instructions to fit in, listens to pop music, watches dumb tv shows and thinks everything is awesome when youre part of a team, when youre living your dream but even thinks a cup of coffee that is is awesome. The Special seems to ll down into Hell, touches a strange piece which is the Piece of Resistance, is caught and interrogated by Bad Cop. They lie and tell him he will live so he wont try to escape, but they plan on taking him to the Melting Chamber to melt him. He is rescued by master builder Lucy aka Wyld who he is enamored with. Later the wizard and Lucy enter his mind to prove he can be a master builder. His mind is empty which enables him to have a vision of the Man Upstairs.

PIKE Youll find my thoughts more interesting, thoughts so primitive you cant understand. Emotions so stricken by pain

NARDOLE No, no, theyre holograms. Theyre holographic simulations. And the people in them, too.

The Ori impose a religion called Origin on sentient beings, promising a guide towards enlightenment that is also known in the series as Ascension.[] The ith comes with a holy book called The Book of Origin, and the Priors spread the Word of Origin. The Book of Origin contains tales of how the followers of the Ori returned to the path to enlightenment, and thus achieved Ascension, although some skeptics consider these merely bles meant to fill a soul bereft of hope with purpose.[] Several lines from the Book of Origin, or otherwise repeated mantras, are heard on the show. These include variations of Hallowed are the Ori. The central icon of this religion is fire, something that gives off light and warmth.[] The ct that on Earth this icon has some evil or Satanic associations in many modern religions prompted Daniel to posit that the Ancients had influenced this negative connotation in order to identify the threat the Ori pose. Among the populations of natives in the Ori home galaxy are groups of heretics who believe they are being suppressed, and seek to discover forbidden historical knowledge to show others that the Ori, despite their power, are not gods.

Disney made Pan into a cartoon character and major motion picture star with the release of their animated movie Peter Pan which looked liked the mischievious playful sylvan forest god of greek mythology. He dressed in green, had pointed ears, and possessed magical powers of a iry such as being able to fly and he played on his pan pipes or flute, and just wanted to have fun all the time and never grow up. To help him he also had Wendy windy, a tinker bell and a dragon or crocodile. He defeated his nemesis Captain Hook by the crocodile eating him in the moon. He urged the viewer to go to Neverland by following a star, the second star on the right, which very well may be an allusion to Sirius. The second star to the right shines in the night for you to tell you that the dreams you plan really can come true. The second star to the right shines with a light so rare and if its Never Land you need its light will lead you there. Pan played a flute or the pan pipes. Not only did the iry tales have a piper named Peter, but in nursery rhymes there was Peter Piper who picked a peck of pickled peppers. Peppers are of the piper genus. The words are etymologically related.

The movie depicts a scenario in which God is an Overmind or a collective consciousness of white light and desires for mankind to evolve into one mind. A golden child is produced and all children are linked together as one psychically and telepathically. This is exactly what near death experiencers report as communication with a light being many experiencers call God is encountered. This god of the NDE is said to be a collective soul communicating with the collective consciousness of humanity.

The Ori /?ra?/[] are fictional characters in the science fiction television series, Stargate SG. They are a group of ascended beings who use their advanced technology and knowledge of the universe to attempt to trick nonascended humans into worshipping them as gods. They first appeared in the ninth season of Stargate SG, replacing the Goauld as the shows primary antagonists. While the Goauld relied on stolen technology from other civilizations to pose as gods, the Ori also have paranormal abilities in addition to very advanced technology. As Ascended beings, they live on a higher plane of existence with great power and knowledge and are as close to being gods as any nondeific being can be.

I cant really do analysis of programming in Hollywood movies without mentioning Disney. Of course, there is The Sorcerors Apprentice where Mickey Mouse is dressed up as the wizards apprentice with a wizards hat and robe and magic wand. And then there is the constant reinforcement of the Princess motif which perpetuaates the idea of monarchical rule, but also gives young girls an entitlement and the unrealistic dream of being rescued by a handsome, young Prince, Pince Charming, who will enable her to be Queen herself one day. But I would like to focus on one movie in particular and that is Peter Pan. I believe it contains much symbolism for the afterlife. In ct, one of the most mous quotes from the movie is To Die Will Be An Awfully Big Adventure Peter Pan.

For the road to the stars was a road that forked in two directions, and neither led to a goal that took any account of human hopes or fears. At the end of one path were the Overlords. They had preserved their inidually, their independent egos; they possessed selfawareness and the pronoun I had a meaning in their language. They had emotions, some at least of which were shared by humanity. Butthey were trapped, Jan realized now, in a culdesac from which they could never escape. Their minds were tenperhaps a hundredtimes as powerful as mens. It made no difference in the final reckoning. They were equally helpless, equally overwhelmed by the unimaginable complexity of a galaxy of a hundred thousand million suns, and a cosmos of a hundred thousand million galaxies. And at the end of the other path? There lay the Overmind, whatever it might be, bearing the same relation to man as man bore to amoeba. Potentially infinite, beyond mortality, how long had it beenabsorbing race after race as it spread across the stars? Did it too have desires, did it have goals it sensed dimly yet might never attain? Now it had drawn into its being all that the human race had ever achieved. This was not tragedy, but fulfilment. The billions of transient sparks of consciousness that had made up humanity would flicker no more like flreffies against the night. But they had not lived utterly in vain. The last act, Jan knew, had still to come. It might occur tomorrow, or it might be centuries hence. Even the Overlords could not be certain. He understood their purpose now, what they had done with Man and why they still lingered upon Earth. Towards them he felt a great humility, as well as admiration for the inflexible patience that had kept them waiting here so long. He never learned the full story of the strangesymbiosis between the Overmind and its servants. According to Rasha verak, there had never been a time in his races history when the Overmind was not there, though it had made no use of them until they had achieved a scientific civilization and could range through space to do its bidding. But why does it need you? queried Jan. With all its tremendous powers, surely it could do anything it pleased. No, said Rashaverak, it has limits. In the past, we know, it has attempted to act directly upon the minds of other races, and to influence their cultural development. Its always iled, perhaps becausethe pull is too great.We are the interpretersthe guardians. Or, to use one of your own metaphors,we till the field until the crop is ripe. The Overmind collects the harvestand we move on to another task. This is the fifth race whose apotheosis we have watched. Each time we learn a little more. And do you not resent beingused as a tool by the Overmind? The arrangement has some advantages besides, noone of intelligence resents the inevile.

Michael Douglas plays a wealthy businessman caught up in the routine of life. His brother, played by Sean Penn, gives him a birthday gift for the man who has everything. It is a tailormade game customized for the willing partcipant who willingly agrees to play the game. This game plunges him into a heike reality where he is thrown into survival mode and doesnt know what the truth is anymore of who he can trust. This company even has the power to control the daily news he watches. SPOILER ALERT He is so distraught by the game that he jumps from the top of a skyscraper to commit suicide only to land on an inflated X that marks the spot or bulls eye. They had planned along for him to jump. As it turns out all of it was an elaborate prank or joke. Of course, you never get a joke until after the very end is told or played out. The funny thing is while all the hired actors his socalled acquaintences and friends celebrated afterwads, I never saw him crack a smile or laugh about it in the end. This movie hints that our very reality could in ct all just be an elaborate hoax or trick yes, agame.

Steven Spielberg spiel means spell, burg is german for rock or mountain directed the movie Hook starring Robin Williams as an older, grownup Peter Pan. I find the a sphere with Tinker Bells golden light as a lure on Captain Hooks hook of this movie poster for Hook suggestive of the Dreamworks Pictures opening sequence of the boy fishing on the moon with his hook down on the waters on Earth. One of the more memorable quotes from the movie is Peter Pan declaring, To die will be an awfully big adventure. There is a scene where Tinkerbell who is lit up like a firefly from hell, as Peter calls her, is pulling him toward her and he says he has died, is out of his body and is going to the light, a direct reference to the Light mentioned in near death experiences. Later Peter tells his army of soldiers called The Lost Boys, Lets get ready to show them the white light were made of, boys. He also has to climb up a drain pipe because he ran out of iry dust.

He talks of building an army of master builders.

The point is to draw the audience right into the situationinstead of leaving them to watch it from outside, from a distanceIf you played the whole scene straight through you would lose your power over the audience. They would watch the scene without becoming really involved in it, and you would have no means of concentrating their attention on those particular visual details which make them feel what the characters are feeling.

Maybe when we die, well get a chance to be with them again. Jerry, you built something here. All this is in defiance of them, right?

I want to know everything. It connects to the Overmind. Step in. Youre the Overmind. A int reflection of it. I am all, isible and inisible. I am the collective consciousness of this universe. So we are God? No, the children are God, and they have left you, as children must, and you must let them go, as parents must. Only the children can become a part of the whole. Its an evolution.

The entity could control the instantaneous transmutation of matter from one form to another, turning everyday objects into weapons and sealing bulkheads on a whim. It could pass through solid objects at will, teleport from one location to the next, and influence the thoughts of others. It could heal a humanoids mortal wounds, and could even alter a persons memories so that they remembered fictional mily members and events that never existed. The entity appeared unable to communicate in any shion understandable to a humanoid. Although its motives and nature were not wholly known, it lacked the same ethical standards of most humanoids and largely acted in a malignant shion. Its only weakness appeared to be exposure to emotions of humor, good nature, and friendship; it was particularly susceptible to laughter.

Now lets be sure we understand the danger of this. The inhabitants of this planet can read our minds, they can create illusions out of a persons own thoughts, memories, and experiences, even out of a persons own desires. Illusions just as real and solid as this le top and just as impossible to ignore.

Number Six I am not a number! I am a free man!

Lord Business uses a goodcop, bad cop routine and has a robot army AI.

JANEWAY My people are telling me to fight. Theyre trying to save me.

The Oracle tells Neo a program can either choose to hide here or return to the source, the machine mainframe where you must go, where the path of the one ends …the door made of light in is dreams…she is saying the source is the machine and that the light leads to the machine

Dorothy talks about a someplace where there isnt any trouble…says its r r away behind the moon, beyond the rain…somewhere over the rainbow. She is looking for Auntie Em Emily in the storm which becomes the vortex….. EM….EM…..ElectroMagnetic? storm.

Number Six I will not make any deals with you. Ive resigned. I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed, or numbered! My life is my own!

many agent smiths surround neo and tell him everything is because of purpose and they need to take back the purpose that neo took from them…..agent smith tries to assimilate neo and he starts turning into black goo

I know that I have demons. I dont know if I want to get rid of them altogether, but I would like to experience them in a different way. Johnny Depp

Star Wars Death Star In the originalStar Warsmovie, a battle station for the Imperial troops was camouflaged as a moon. Look at him. Hes heading for that small moon…. Thats no moon! Its a space station!… Its too big to be a space station…. Were caught in a tractor beam and its pulling us in. InReturn of the Jedi, the design of the Death Star was improved upon, resulting in a halfshell.

KIRK If the energy of that organism only doubles, were dead, and everything within a light year will be defenceless.

Its a beautiful, balmy evening as the sun starts to set on the , excited spectators. Delegates from the World Federation are taking to the main podium. Its ir to say that everybodys breath is truly bated as we wait to meet our guardian angels…. People are on their feet. We havent seen an Overlord ship this close since they first arrived over a decade and a half ago. Now, it does appear to be docking with the arrival ramp. ? ? And its docked. The ship is docked. ? ? This is Karellen. Let the children come forward. The child greeters that Karellen asked for are now entering the arrival ramp…Karellen was right to hide himself from us. Still, I think, uh… I think it may be too soon.

Listening to you, I get the music. Gazing at you, I get the heat. Following you, I climb the mountains. I get excitement at your feet. Right behind you, I see the millions…

The new age movement and meditation groups etc are always telling us we need to kill the ego and basically merge our consciousness with the oneness. And near death experiencers say the white light is a collective of all our souls.

Contact Astronaut Jodie Foster travels through worm holes to make contact with an extraterrestrial being who downloads her memories and poses as her ther.

ALIEN Im trying to help you. Stop fighting me.

Dr. Weir has a rude awakening in a psychiatric hospital on Earth, where she is told that her memories of Atlantis are delusions.

ALIEN Im trying to spare you unnecessary pain.

The opening sequence always contains this dialogue

One of the robed figures reaches Sulu and points his hollow stave at him. Sulu stiffens, then relaxes with a smile on his ce. The transporter takes him away.

JANEWAY Youre trying very hard to convince me to come with you. Why is that? If what youre saying is true, why not let me come to the decision on my own?

JANEWAY I was right. I heard Tuvok and Chakotay and the Doctor. Youre an alien. Youve created all these hallucinations, havent you?

BOYCE Maybe it was. Its what I tried to explain in the briefing room. Their power of illusion is so great, we cant be sure of anything we do, anything we see.

Agent Smith tries to assimilate Neo into black goo…Neo becomes an Agent Smith but accesses the Light Power from within and transmutes all of the Agent Smiths into light

Shrek Lovable ogre Shrek has been wounded by an arrow and his gregarious donkey companion, fretting death, pleads, Dont die, Shrek. And if you see a long tunnel, stay away from the light!

JANEWAY Thats the real me, isnt it, lying on the ground on that planet, dying, and this is thehallucination. This isnt real.

In Mune Guardian of the Moon, the evil moon god wannabe who has eyes of fire and lightning wants to steal the sun and he lets loose serpents of light. They said the moon was created in the world of dreams and brought here through a trap door. Perhaps the world of dreams is an allusion to the astral plane and the trap door a reference to the tunnel.

The Wizard of OzThe classic movie The Wizard of Oz was written by L. Frank Baum, a noted member of the Theosophical society, who rejected Christianity and converted to Gnosticism known as Theosophy in the nineteenth century two years before writing the book. He included many Gnostic elements in the book. There are so many overtones. The light of the NDE is past the tunnel represented by the tornado vortex, over the rainbow all the s seen in the tunnel and in the emerald city crystal city is seen in some NDEs. The characters and attributes of the Tin Man/Heart, Lion/Courage, Scarecrow/Brain etc represent the redemption of those lacking in some essential quality, ultimately being restored and causing their life to be almost reborn. The Wizard, the frail old man behind the curtain running the show, is the Demiurge, seemingly all fierce but really nothing in essence pay no attention to that man behind the curtain.

The Lion King The first few minutes of the movie include an offering to the sun.

And thenwhat am I to do with you, the survivors, when your purpose has been fufilled? It would be st, perhaps, and most merciful, to destroy youas you yourselves would destroy a mortally wounded pet you loved. But this I cannot do. Your future will be your own to choose in the years that are left to you. It is my hope that humanity will go to its rest in peace, knowing that it has not lived in vain.

Christof You were real. Thats what made you so good to watch.

Movie violence is like eating salt. The more you eat, the more you need to eat to taste it at all. People are becoming immune to the effects The death counts have quadrupledtheyre becoming deaf to it. Theyve developed an insatiability for raw sensation.

This movie popularized the phrase pod people. It starred Donald Sutherland, Leonard Nimoy and Jeff Goldblum. Spores from outer space came to Earth and infiltrated the human population through flowers…the flowers were white and looked like crysanthemums.

Finding Nemo This scene features an angler fish, a real fish, which lures its prey to death by dangling a light out in front! Notice a direct comparison is made to the afterlife.

Glinda the Good witch tells Dorothy, You dont need to be helped any longer. Youve always had the power. This is the key component of Gnosticism, that the soul is a ine spark and has the Light Power within.

manages to escape and return back to his normal life.

Evil can disguise itself as truth. Whatever ith or belief you have, know that were in this battle together, all of us. We can never give up the fight. No matter how mighty the Overlords may seem, we should never give up. Remember, there is an ultimate truth in this universe. I will never, ever stop believing that.

The book were Neo stashes the computer discs/ programs Simulacra and Simulation…guy tells Neo hes his savior…. you dont exist

MOY Yes, for lack of a better term. Its a very form of life. In ct its a much r form of life than what youre looking at now. But that thing can apparently perform all the functions that qualify it as a living organism. It can reproduce, it can breathe, it can eat, although I dont know what.

KIRK Joy to you, friend. Peace and contentment will fill you. You will know the peace of Landru.Kirk leaves, and Spock is stened to the wall for his treatment. The lights waver as the Lawgivers leave Marplon to his work.MARPLON Have no fear, friend. The effect is harmless. My name is Marplon. I was too late to save your first two friends. They have been absorbed. Beware of them.

VINA They cant actually make you do anything you dont want to do.

KIRK You keep talking about life, Mister Spock. A chance for life. How? As a prisoner, caged, a zoo specimen, living the illusions that amuse his keepers?

In this Simpsons episode, D Homer finds himself in the third dimension. Reverend Lovejoy asks Homer if he sees a light and tells him, Move into the

Daredevil The devil, red suit and all, posing with the full moon. He tells a dying man, The light at the end of the tunnel? Guess what, thats not heaven… its the C Train! [the dying man threatens, Ill kill you, Ill kill you.] Of course, the crescent moon does look like a C in the sea of space.

Dr. Lesh Tell her to stay away from the light.

Ray Bradberry, creator of the Star Trek original series, is rumored to have been a rd degree freemason. What this episode describes is precisely what the Gnostics wrote and I believe is happening right now on Earth. There are entities which the Gnostics called Archons that can manipulaste our minds and emotions in order ro feed off of our energy, except I think they are more like shadow beings like shown in the movie Spirited Away than the swirling light that was depicted.

KIRK Those staffs. Hollow tubes. Antennae for some sort of broadcast power. What is it, Mister Spock?SPOCK Strong power generations, Captain. Near here, but radiating in all directions.

Theres Something About Mary An attempt to resuscitate a swooned dog is made. Stay away from the light! Yes, there is some thing about Mary, i.e. an entity around Isis, the moon.

The human race has been taken over by small parasitic aliens called Souls. The Souls travel to distant planets inserting themselves inidually into a host body of that planets dominant species. They are able to access the hosts memories, and occupied hosts are identifiable by silver rings that form in the hosts eyes.

Neo wakes up in bed. Morpheus calls him, tells him he is the One and tells him to go to the bridge where trinity picks him up and removes the bug.

McKay and Sheppard participate in a SIMSlike game simulation which turns out to be very real and with very destructive effects.

Once Neo anagram for one believes in himself enough then it is apparent he is the One and he is able to stop bullets in mid air. He effortlessly fights off Agent Smiths attack and jumps inside of Agent Smith, travels to his brain or third eye area region and Agent Smith explodes into light….in Gnostic terms, the darkness or shadow is transformed by the Light Power of Neo.

SPOCK Which would tend to support the proposition that the murderer was not human. Deriving sustenance from emotion is not unknown in the galaxy, and fear is among the strongest and most violent of the emotions.

DOUGLAS How many simulated worlds like this are there?

DOUGLAS No Ashton, Im not really a God. Im just like you. Just a bunch of electricity.

Flynn…raced on ribbons of light…together we built a new grid for programs and users…I couldnt be in there all the time so I created a program in my own that could think like you and me and I called him Clu., Codified Lightdisc Utility. And Tron, Clu and I built a system where all information was free. An then one day something happened. Something extraordinary. A miracle. end quote

The Sentinels in the movie are AI and are a cross between metal, robotic insects, viruses and squid or octopi as they have tentacles.

Diane Stay away from the light. The light is dangerous. Dont go near it. Dont even look at the light.

According to IMDB, The Enterprise is sent to investigate the disruption of the Gamma VIIA solar system and the destruction of the U.S.S. Intrepid, staffed solely by Vulcans. When they arrive they find a large dark mass floating in space that is draining energy from everything around it, including the Enterprise. Drawn into the mass, they find a huge amoebalike creature and Kirk must decide which of his two friends, McCoy or Spock, to send into it aboard a shuttle craft on a mission of no return.

NARDOLE It is! Look at the tech. It definitely is.

DOCTOR No, Im not. Im a shadow. A puppet Doctor for you to practise killing.

SPOCK It would appear that the entity wants us alive. KIRK Why? So we can fight, and fight, and keep coming back for more like some bloody coliseum? Whats next, the roar of crowds?

Lord Business the Man Upstairs, the President of Octan whose office is a giant tower wants everyone to follow the rules or theyll get put to sleep. He has his eye on them all the time. He has red horns and captures all the llen master builders, puts them in pods hooked up to a battery, tortures them and harnesses their ideas in a think tank. Collectively, they come up with all the instructions that run the world.

The Borg Queen from Star Trek First Contact movie. The inorganic Borg cyborgs assimilate other species into their collective hive consciousness. Resistance is futile.

The screenwriter for Gladiator, David Franzoni, clearly understands that we are headed back in time to Romes blood soaked arenas

you can return to Zion if you reach the source but to do that you will need the keymaker..being held prisoner by an old program, the Merovingian

we never free a mind once its reached a certain age…its dangerous….the mind has trouble letting go

SPOCK Fascinating. During Lieutenant Johnsons emotional outburst, his expression of hatred and lust for vengeance, the aliens life energy level increased. When the Lieutenant became unconscious, the alien lost energy. KIRK It subsists on the emotions of others. SPOCK This one appears to be strengthened by mental irradiations of hostility, violent intentions. KIRK It exists on the hate of others. SPOCK To put it simply. And it has acted as a catalyst, creating this situation in order to satisfy that need. It has brought together opposing forces, provided crude instruments in an effort to promote the most violent mode of conflict. KIRK And kept numbers and resources balanced, so that it can maintain a constant state of violence. Its got to have a vulnerable area. Weve got to get rid of it. SPOCK Then all hostile attitudes on board must be eliminated. The fighting must end and soon. KIRK Or were a doomed ship, travelling forever between galaxies, filled with eternal bloodlust, eternal ware.

The Oscar statue of the Academy Awards gets its name from Ausur or Osiris, the Egyptian god, pictured on the right. You can see both figures are golden, have their arms crossed across the chest and hold a sceptre.

The Peter Pan movie begins with the narration All this has happened before and it will all happen again. as they show a river symbolic of the Milky Way galaxy. The movie ends with the statement, I have the strangest feeling I saw that ship a long time ago when I was very young. This is obviously referring to the cyclical notion of reincarnation or recycling of souls. [Could Robin Hood and Maid Marian of Sherwood Forest be yet another tale of Peter Pan and Mary?]

The Skulls A candidate is tapped by an Ivy League secret society, modeled after the real life Skull and Bones society at Yale, which has produced several U.S. Presidents. Notice the initiate dies in the sun to be reborn again.

We have renewable, clean energy and enough food to feed the planet, all of our material needs satisfied. Death is still a ct of life, but free from disease, stress, and all the things that turned us grey. We live longer, healthier lives. The birth rate is soaring. We have a world that we are proud to bring children into. For those who cling to the old ways, theres always New Athens…Karellen didnt come down to see if we were flossing regularly. Well, he said that the Earth has a new destiny. What does that mean? I haveI have no idea whats waiting for us.Could it have something to do with the animals weve been collecting for the Overlords?… But sending live animals into space? What does that teach us about them? Because theres one species they havent collected us, homo sapiens.When the Overlords came, they raised all these exciting questions about the cosmos, but they refused to answer any of them. Its not just about me. Theyve killed scientific inquiry.They cant hurt you. Its in your Minds are funny things. They can change the way we see the world. [baby crying echoing] They can fool us.Why do they look like demons? Like our exact idea of devils? You know, every time you ask me a question, you already have an answer. Thats not true. They look like our idea of devils because theyve been here before. Weve been waiting for them. We knew they were coming, so when they brought about this change, it scared us on some deep level because we could never stop it. That would imply some kind of crazy psychic connect Yes, yes, psychic connection. People have been writing about this for centuries. I mean, ancient mystics talked about an energy, a relationship between all living things and the stars themselves. Perhaps weve always known the Overlords were coming. Okay, so because of some crackpot ancient philosophy we knew they were coming to do good? So then why turn them into the personification of evil? Hmm.Tom told me they take him somewhere, to a place of fire and smokeThe Overlords are deceiving us. I dont know why, but they are.The golden dawn comes shining from the eyes of God. Oh. [beeping] Hey. Hey. Want to hear what I found in this Corpus Hermeticum?Were from the World Federation.So… you have solved many of the problems your science was chasing. Disease, climate change, and as a consequence, much of your research is now redundant. Nevertheless, you should be proud of what you have accomplished. Bravo. Now, I know theres been some concern as to why I acquired so many animals for the Overlords. They are to be shipped to Karellens home world as part of a great menagerie, a zoo. [crowd murmuring]I admire the work you have done, but your scientific curiosity has led you dangerously close to forces that you could never have controlled. They would have destroyed you. They saved us from ourselves. Why are we being kept in the dark? You now have peace, and the way has been prepared for your successors. Id like to thank everybody who worked on the World Federation Observation Orbital.You will find a new voice inside you… who I can now speak with. You need to trust us…. You know who you really are and what youre joined with, so tell me and tell yourself. You are singular and myriad, one and many. Reveal yourself to me. Reveal yourself to me… Listen to my voice. [Amy breathing unevenly] Youre trying to be a child, but you cannot be a child knowing yourself as you do… Accept who you are.Whenever you summon God, you want comfort… Yet the very idea of him makes you confused and afraid. He is a stick you feel you must lean on… But the stick burns.Whatever it promised you, it is a lie. You lied to them! You lied to us all! They deserve the truth. You made your prophet sick… They want to destroy us. How could you do this? I sold you to the world. The day is coming, Ricky, when your world will change forever. It will be harder on those who have children. I cannot stop that, we are not masters but merely the servants, but I could spare you the pain of being parents. No, how dare you? It is not your right to decide!… Oh, my friend… I just wanted to spare you… the pain of what is coming… All the worlds religions cannot be right, Peretta. You know that. [crying] Your ith is beautiful as poetry is beautiful… but there is no place for it now. [crying] You deceived us! No, you have deceived yourself.

blinking AI eye whoever you are, whatever you are, you will hypnotize me no longer

Logan Well, theres a few over there that could have been his seed mother.

Here is an excerpt of dialogue from the movie Thats a Soul Hunter. The story is they travel all over the place, capturing the souls of important people right at the moment of death…

KIRK Peace and tranquility to you. in a whisper Are you all right?

Babylon River of Souls was a scifi TV movie was about soul hunters that collect the souls of interesting souls at death to save them from extinction. The souls from the planet were just about to evolve to the next level where they no longer needed physical bodies but would be pure energy, except the soul hunters captured them and preserved them for , years. A billion souls the soul hunters had accumulated were put in a glass sphere that looked like a sun. It contained the souls collective memories, thoughts and personalities, and they were stored in what was called the Great Hall. In NDE lore that is called the akashic records or the hall of records. Maybe when the soul is stolen or merges with the light its memories are taken and put in the akashic records, which may or may not be equivalent to the astral sun.

Carol Anne Mommy, theres somebody here … Mommy, somebodys coming. Mommy, help me, please!Get away from me. Leave me alone!

McKAY Well at some point during their evolution the Ancients reached a… uh, an advanced stage of being where they were able to rid themselves of their physical bodies and rise to a higher plane of existence, one in which theythey live as pure energy.MOON

NARDOLE No, theyre not. Theyre projecting everything. Those worlds, theyre all projected. The Pentagon, the Vatican, CERN.

PIKE Did they ever live on the suce of this planet? Why did they go underground?

Seeds drifting through space for years took root in a rmers field. From the seeds came pods which had the power to reproduce themselves in the exact likeness of any form of life. So thats how it began… out of the sky. Your new bodies are growing in there. Theyre taking you over cell for cell, atom for atom. Theres no pain. Suddenly, while youre asleep theyll absorb your minds, your memories and youre reborn into an untroubled world. Where everyones the same? Exactly. What a world. Were not the last humans left. Theyll destroy you! Tomorrow, you wont want them to. Tomorrow, youll be one of us. I love Becky. Tomorrow, will I feel the same? Theres no need for love. No emotion? Then you have no feelings, only the instinct to survive.

in one scene truman hears a different frequency on the radio and hears the truth…its only when the frequency changes back that his normal life resumes

SPOILER ALERT Warning. These movie scenes or clips may contain spoilers.

I like the analogy of Dorothy going through the vortex tunnel, over the rainbow of , and into the dreamworld astral and the demiurge wizard using tricks and deception to run the crystal city of light…very similar to NDES…. the lyrics even say to step into the light before they enter the emerald city.

In this scifi classic, society is subversively controlled by a race of nonhumans. Billboards and magazines subliminally read, Obey. Submit. Money covertly s, This is your God. Notice a pair ofsunglasses is what reveals this hidden truth.

SPOCK The inhabitants of this planet must live deep underground, probably manucture food and other needs down there. Our tests indicate the planet suce, without considerably more vegetation or some animals, simply too barren to support life.

Francis That Reds gonna run. I can always tell.

Morpheus, the god of Dreams, guides Neo out of his cubicle prison at work were Agent Smith and the police are coming to take him

That alien, his Matrix, he was like the spider that has to lure a fly into his web… Do you think its possible that each of the near death experiences weve heard about are the result of an alien inhabitation? Captain Janeway in the Star Trek Voyager episode, Coda

SPOCK The cessation of violence appears to have weakened it, Captain. I suggest that good spirits might make an effective weapon. KIRK Get off my ship. Youre a dead duck here. Youre powerless. We know about you, and we dont want to play. Maybe there are others like you around. Maybe youve caused a lot of suffering, a lot of history, but thats all over. Well be on guard now, ready for you. So ship out! Come on! Haul it! MOY Yeah, out already. KANG Out! We need no urging to hate humans. But for the present, only a fool fights in a burning house. Out! To the sound of laughter, the weird light turns to white and leaves the Enterprise.

There are so many Gnostic overtones and awakening within a constructed reality.The robots are humans in the scenario, meaning they are kept repeating roles and are wiped each time they die. In Westworld every hosts life is scripted but some hosts were programmed to remember and break out or expose the truth.

Francis Only a few? Youre just not trying. [laughs]

Reger leads them into a building made of massive stones. He goes over to a corner and unwraps a flat panel, which gives off light.

Sheppard and Weir become a threat to Atlantis when their minds are taken over by hostile entities.

he is recognized as a man, a man of steel magnificently equipped to lead them or to go

Logan Why were you so angry just then. What did he do to you?

Agent Smith refers to the other Smiths as the rest of me indicating they are a collective

The movie Childhoods End was based on the book by Arthur C. Clarke, author of a Space Odyssey. As with that book Childhoods End also deals with aliens and the future evolution of mankind into a potentially different form.

SPOCK Computer, digest log recordings for past five solar minutes. Correlate hypotheses. Compare with life forms register. Question. Could such an entity within discussed limits exist in this galaxy?

What about my past? What about my childhood? Shell Beach. Uncle Karl. What about this? This was blank when I found it.

once they discover truman is missing the moon becomes a searchlight…..cue the sun at night time

Soul Hunter For we are drawn to death, to the moment of passage for the purpose of defeating death. We capture those rare souls. The poets and philosophers, the artists, the leaders. We collect them all. We are drawn by the smell of death. The passing of the physical form is like a beacon to us… and we decided that we would save them all.

MOY Yes, but she said more than that. Not just death, but fear. She said it also feeds on fear.

there is a le with a bunch of various d earth models and globes… a being in a white hooded robe bearing the number is holding a glass globe, he is wearing a mask that is white on one side and black on the other. removes the mask and reveals the mask of an ape, he then removes the ape mask and sees his own ce. the being laughs hysterically and runs away.

SPOCK I point out that Jack the Ripper slew at will in the heart of the most populous city of old Earth and was never identified.

In this episode of the original Star Trek series, the crew discover a hollow asteroid disguised as a planet whose inhabitants are duped into worshipping a deity who is portrayed as a sun. One inhabitant warns the crew that one day he was climbing a mountain, which is strictly forbidden. He says, Where is outside? Many years ago I climbed the mountains even though it is forbidden [winces in pain]. Things are not as they teach us for the world is hollow and I have touched the sky! [collapses in agony] Kirk repeats what he said, trying to decipher the words. For the world is hollow, and I have touched the sky….. Yes, of course it is because if you did youd touch the sky and find out you were living on a big ball. Not a planet, but a spaceship. And that knowledge seems to be forbidden.

On my daddys rm, the animals have all the food they want. I feed the pigs red apples. [giggles] And daddy gives them medicine so they never get sick, and theyre happy when daddy and the other men take them away. I dont know where they go, but I know theyre really happy. Paid for by the Freedom League.

The movie preaches that everything good must come to an end and forewarns or predicts the elimination of mankind as a species and the destruction of Earth itself while our children exist in the future as the pure consciousness of the Overmind.

To Serve Man One of the most classicTwilight Zoneepisodes ever. Mr. Chambers! Dont get on that ship! The rest of the book,To Serve Man…Its acookbook!

In last episode Sleeping in Light, John is waiting for death on his station/ship The White Star which is filled with light and he is told by Lorien, a First One, he was never forgotten by The First Ones, a race more ancient than the Minbari, and he is taken out of the galaxy into the void I think.

Soul Hunter You dont understand because you are trapped in a prison of your own flesh. The flesh has desires. The flesh has needs. But the soul is pure. The soul needs only to continue, to be.

Carousel Lastday, Capricorn s. Year of the City, . Carousel begins. [repeats]

Consciousness, Milo, is a community of minds. Each exists in the others thoughts. Rachel exists in your consciousness as if she had never left. You still love her, you still feel her, so what has changed? Shes dead, gone. But she once lived, and you knew her. You know her still. Until Im gone too, right? Its all gone, everything we built, we did. It has been the destiny of many worlds. We have overseen them all. Yeah, what about your people? Is this gonna happen to you one day on Jenjedda? We have reached the end of our development. All our possibilities are exhausted.

Sheppard encounters a psychopathic crystalline entity that takes on his likeness in his teams nightmares.

The portal uses massive power and can only stay open for a while and can only be opened from the outside. The portal closed on him.and he couldnt get back home.

Alien posing as her ther Youre an interesting species, an interesting mix. Youre capable of such beautiful dreams and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only youre not. See, in all our searching, the only thing weve found that makes the emptiness bearable is each other.

KIRK We know that someone or something killed three women. If its impossible for it to be human, it has to be something else. Something driven to kill.

birds, trees, wind etc are all programs running

the creator and director of the show explains how they were able to fool Truman we accept the reality of the world which we are presented

Youre here because you know something. What you know you cant explain but you felt it. you felt it your entire life, that theres something wrong with the world. … do you know what Im talking about?

MOY Now, isnt that a thought? Here we are, antibodies of our own galaxy, attacking an invading germ. It would be ironic indeed if that were our sole destiny, wouldnt it?

LANDRU You will be absorbed. Your iniduality will merge into the unity of the good, and in your submergence into the common being of the Body, you will find contentment and fulfillment. You will experience the absolute good.

They are still playing, said Rashaverak. What logic is there in the actions of a child? And in many ways the entity that your race has become is still a child. It isnot yet ready to unite with the Overmind. But very soon it will be, and then you will have the Earth to your own.

JANEWAY Let me tell you this. We can stand here for all eternity and I will never choose to go with you.

The dark lord of the Underworld, Necross, has stolen the sun so they e down into a blue hole and are underwater… an anglerfish named Phosphos says he used to be Guardian of the Moon. Phosphoros is a Greek name meaning LightBringer and was the morning star, Venus, and corresponds to the Latin, Lucifer. An anglerfish is a real fish that feeds on its prey by using a light for bait.

DOUGLAS Its all smoke and mirrors. Just like your world. Were nothing but a simulation on some computer. Its like a machine. Like this arcade game. Youve got your players and you put your nickel in.

The players can beat the out of and try to drown some other, which is always fun.

The Thirteenth Floor The Thirteenth Floor was released the year after the Truman Show and like The Truman Show and Dark City, the main character travels to the edge of his world and discovers that its a simulation.

The boss at Metacortex Every employee understands they are part of the whole

The impact that movies have on their viewers is due to the purposeful way their creators design them. Alfred Hitchcock, considered the horror film director and Master of Suspense in his day declared his intent

The Gnostic s mention a higher light…and also impure light….the white light of the NDE is definitely not the higher light in my opinion……..

LAWGIVER It is clear that you simply did not understand. I will rephrase. You are ordered to accompany us to the absorption chambers.

Welcome to the desert of the real…They the machines were dependent on solar power and it was believed that they would be unable to survive without an energy source as abundant as the sun. The human body carries more bioelectricity than a volt battery and over , BTUs of body heat. Combined with a form of fusion, the machines had found … there are fields, endless, fields, where human beings are no longer born, we are grown.

JANEWAY But your patience is wearing thin. Whats the real reason you want me in that Matrix? Somehow I dont think it has anything to do with everlasting joy.

Before their birth on earth, clones are created in pods and programmed via light and hypnotic suggestion that they are special and have been chosen to go to the island which is powered by a holographic grid.

Flynn teaches about being selfless and removing ones self from the equation. CLU was a program designed to create the perfect world.. Something unexpected happened. A miracle. Isos, Isomorphic algorithms IsosIsis?, a whole new life form. Control, order, perfection none of it meant a thing They manifested like a flame. The conditions were right and they came into being. Isos were going to be is gift to the world but CLU happened just as he says this he puts two tetrahedronal stars down on the fireplace mantle CLU fed on Flynns resistance…the harder he fought the more powerful CLU became. CLU saw the ISOs as an imperfection so he destroyed them.

Seemingly patterned after the Archon beings of the Gnostic s and the reports in the Ufology community, Dark City is similar to The Truman Show a human was given bricated memories of his childhood life and presented a lse reality. He travels to the edge of his world to go home to Shell Beach but hits a wall. Like Truman, he tries to break through the wall.

Even George Lucas, director of the Star Wars trilogy, confesses to manipulating the emotions of his audience

SPOCK Working. To meet with specified requirements, entity would exist without form in conventional sense. Most probable mass of energy of highly cohesive electromagnetic field.

Little Nicky Little Nicky is the devils son, aptly named for Old Nick is a euphemism for The Devil. I got hit by this big light that was attached to a lot of metal!

The Matrix This is a scifi classic where Neo is told humans are nothing more than a battery a source of power for the machines and that he is living in a lse world, a matrix.

The Oracle says the Architects purpose is to balance the equation and that her purpose is unbalance the equation

NUMBER ONE So we just thought we saw survivors there.

cities around the world have UFO vessels hovering over them.

And then Dorothy repeating a mantra theres no place like home/focused intent to wake upfrom the dream and return back home. The ruby slippers represent the inner spark within all of us. When Glinda instructs Dorothy never to take off the ruby slippers, she is telling Dorothy never to lose her inner spark.

MONK You are not real. There is nothing you can do.

In the Gnostic Pistis Sophia itsays Sophia was in the th aeon and she desired to go to the higher light so she stopped performing her mysteries, Demiurge and the archon rulers got angry, hated her and tricked her into seeing his light and thinking it was the higher light and then captured her…..also, he had light, he just wasnt giving/shining all of it because he desired to rule….. that pretty well coincides with what I have been saying on the web site….. since we are so low in matter the first light we would see would still be that lower light of the Demiurge, certainly not the light of the realms above. The first lights we see are the stolen and impure light of the lower realms.

Logan Of course not. At least I wonder about it sometimes. Not like you with your automatic oneforone routine. You know you sound like a Sleep Teacher with a stuck tape?

The movie struck me as being not that r off from reality which is to be expected from Clarke who many have linked to freemasonry. There are many parallels to the stories reported in the near death experience phenomenon. The alien overlords employ the appearance of dead loved ones to deliver the important message to mankind and gain their trust. But this was just a ruse or a deception. Karellen was reluctant to reveal how he looked because he looked like the Devil of mythology.

We are your guardiansno more. Often you must have wondered what position my race held in the hierarchy of the universe. As we are above you, sothere is something above us, using us for its own purposes. We have never discovered what it is, though we have been its tool for ages and dare not disobey it. Again and again we have received our orders, have gone to some world in the early flower of its civilization, and have guided it along the road that we can never follow the road that you are travelling now. Again and again we have studied the process we have been sent to foster, hoping that we might learn to escape from our own limitations. But we have glimpsed only the vague outlines of the truth. You called us the Overlords, not knowing the irony of that title. Let us say thaove us is the Overmind, using us as the potter uses his wheel. And your race is the clay that is being shaped on that wheel. We believeit is only a theorythatthe Overmind Is trying to grow, to extend its powersand its awareness of the universe. By now it must be the sum of many races, and long ago it left the tyranny of matter behind. It is conscious of intelligence, everywhere. When it knew that you were almost ready, it sent us here to do its bidding, to prepare you for the transformation that is now at hand.

KIRK Scotty. Whats happening to us? Weve been trained to think in other terms than war. Weve been trained to fight its causes, if necessary. Then why are we behaving like a group of savages? Look at me. Look at me. Two forces aboard this ship, each of them equally armed. Has a war been staged for us, complete with weapons and ideology and patriotic drum beating? Even, Spock, even race hatred? SPOCK Recent events would seem to be directed toward a magnification of the basic hostilities between humans and Klingons. Apparently, it is by design that we fight. We seem to be pawns. KIRK But whats the game? And whose? And what are the rules?

Logan Of course not. Im curious, not sick!

MAGISTRATE Despite its frustration, the creature appears more adaple than our specimens from other planets. We can soon begin the experiment.

In the opening theme of s TV seriesThe PrisonerbyEveryman PicturesPatrick McGoohan drives down the road lifes road, goes through a tunnel and enters a tunnel with a light at the end to doors that say Way out. He has only his right eye open as if he is giving his boss the evil eye as he resigns. His ID is then taken by an automated process and put inside a drawer or filing cabinet. He then leaves through the tunnel and packs his bags. He thinks he is going on vacation to paradise or heaven, but is knocked out by gas and held as a prisoner in the Village. They try to dehumanize him as they refuse to give him a name, only the number , which is the number of man. The operation which keeps him as prisoner appears to be the moon as they have shots of space and the constellations on one side and the earth continents on the other and they also show a rocky base underground with podlike container tubes that go down into a hole reminiscent of craters. If he tries to escape a balloonlooking deviced called Rover hunts him down.

KIRK Mister Chekov, prepare a probe. Scotty, well need a magnetic bottle for the charge. How soon?

The Host is a movie written by Stephnie Meyer who wrote The Twilight saga. The screenplay was written and directed by Andrew Niccol who also wrote the revealing movie Truman Show. Humans are hosts to entities that look like jellyfish. From a summary

ALIEN Usually people are comforted to see their loved ones. It makes thecrossing overa much less fearful occasion. Ive done this many times, but Ive never encountered someone so resistant.

Roman Polanski made the movieRosemarys Babywhich was about the Devil raping and impregnating a woman. The movie poster for his movieBitter Moonis another variation on the siren motif. An attractive woman with her legs wide open is sitting on top of a giant light which we can assume is the moon based on the name of the movie. A shipful of sailors sails underneath, presumably to their death upon the rock.

He climbs a set of stairs to meet his creator. A booming voice comes from the sky, the voice of Cristof, saying You can speak. I can hear you.

He reaches into a space between two projectors, and his hand begins to decompile into a grid outline. NARDOLE Im part of it! Im part of the simulation! Bill, Im not real!

And that was when the maze revealed itself to me. The maze. Whats that damn pattern have to do with this? Everything. In Fords game, even if I go to the outer edges, you cant kill me. You cant even leave a lasting mark. But theres a deeper game here, Teddy. Arnolds game. And that game… cuts deep.

DOCTOR Then what are you waiting for? Why dont you kill me now?

ALIEN Wouldnt that be better than standing here in this endless debate?

all the agent smiths look the same, like clones, like copies, like memes

NARDOLE And Im just wondering what happens if we move outside the light of the projector? Dont let me be right. Please, dont let me be right.

JANEWAY Oh, I understand what youre trying to do, but then why have you been torturing us? Why have you thrown my crew into one brutal simulation after another?

SHEPPARD It looked like a… He holds out his hands to signify the cloud but then turns to Grodin for help.

Stargate A traveler from distance stars escaped from a dying world looking for a way to extend his own life. Plotting, decaying and weak, he couldnt prevent his own demise. Apparently his whole species was becoming extinct. So he traveled, searched, the galaxies looking for a way to cheat death. He came to a world rich with life where he encountered a primitive race humans, a species which with all his powers and knowledge, he could maintain indefiniety. He realized within a human body he had a chance for a new life. Now he aparently found a young boy. As the frightened voyagers ran, night became day. Curious and without fear, he walked towards the light. Ra took him and possessed his body like some kind of a parasite looking for a host. And inhabiting this human form, he appointed himself ruler. He used the stargate to bring thousands of workers here to this planet as workers for the mines. This mineral is clearly the building block of all his technology. With this he can sustain eternal life…

dont think you are…know you are….stop trying to hit me and hit me

Youre special. You have a very special purpose in life. Youve been chosen. The Island awaits you…. Youve been chosen. You have a very special purpose. Youre part of a new beginning.Youre special.

NARDOLE Those machines, they project the simulations.

JANEWAY Are you analienbeing of some kind? Is that it?

Then they blocked out the sun. Ho, ho, ho, ho, hold on. They blocked out the sun? How? Localized eclipse? I dont know. Theyre aliens.

SPOCK Computer, extrapolate most likely composition of such entity.

KARR Your lust for the kill has blinded you, like many young hunters. If you took the time to study your prey, to understand its behaviour, you might learn something.

Another team of Australian researchers found that that television is a of sleep teaching that involves subconscious absorption of ry while the viewer is in a mild dreamlike state.

SPOCK Still not able to analyse, Captain. Sensors are feeding data to the computers now. Whatever this dark zone is, it lies directly in line with the course I calculate for the Intrepid and the Gamma SevenA system.

KIRK Look! Look, Kang. For the rest of our lives. A thousand lifetimes. Senseless violence, fighting, while an alien has total control over us. Kirk throws away his sword. KIRK All right. All right. In the heart. In the head. I wont stay dead. Next time Ill do the same to you. Ill kill you. And it goes on, the good old game of war, pawn against pawn! Stopping the bad guys. While somewhere, something sits back and laughs and starts it all over again.

You know that everything were exposed to influences usThose [violent] films influence us, and the TV programs we see influence us. The weaker your mily is, the more they influence youThe problems with milies in our cities are catastrophicbut when you put violent programs before people who havent had a lot of love in their lives, who are angry anyway, its like pouring gasoline on the fire.

The Coliseum was a machine, too. Everyone who died was chopped up and their bodies were put into a butcher shoplegs, arms, whateverand then fed to the animals. They were recycled

The Doctor sitting outside the Vault removes his shades, then replaces them when he gets another message alert. Additional message P.S. Dear Doctor, Save Them The Doctor X. He stands and uses his mobile phone.STARGATE ATLANTIS SE HIDE AND SEEK

KIRK Yes, I remember my basic biology, Doctor. You mean to tell me that that thing is a giant singlecelled animal?

The original Guardian of the Sun is a blind lizard who passes his power on to a young, strong, male with a lions ce and long, white hair down his back who says he has the perfect tan. This perfectly mirrors the Gnostic description of the Demiurge. My friend who met the Demiurge during his near death experience described him as being strong with long, white hair and a bronze complexion. The Gnostic s described the Demiurge as having a lions ce and the body of a serpent, and called him the blind god.

GRODIN Darkness. It surrounded the naqahdah generator and started to grow, like it was feeding off the energy.

We know from the Vorlons and others that when a race evolves beyond a certain point they no longer need a physical body. They evolve past that point and become beings of pure energy. Your people were drawn to Ralga because you felt the imminent passing of their physical bodies. But they werent dying. They werent about to die. They were about to leave behind their physical bodies and evolve to the next level. It shouldve been their greatest moment, the pinnacle in the evolution of any race. And just as it happened, just as they became transcendent, you took them. You took them and you stuck them inside a piece of glass for , years. You made a mistake. Those are living souls in there, cut off in their prime. Trapped, when they shouldve been exploring the universe. Half of them have gone mad and the ones whove held on cant control them anymore.

Convicts and other willing participants agree to have their bodies completely controlled by a game player with user controls, but the originator of the game plans to enslave and trap all humans in the video game. One tandem is breaking free from the system though. The creator declares the character dead and then lures the game character with a virtual reality creation of his daughter sitting in the entrance of a moongate. Its a weird sequence in the movie. The character suddenly is underneath the stars looking up. He walks through a dark corridor or tunnel with a light at one end. He sees his daughter sitting in the light of the moongate and he runs to her only to hit a force field of what he finds out was just an illusion and a trap set for him. We see the moongate is at the top of some steps almost like a pyramid. The game creator takes him upstairs onto a barren rocky suce underneath the stars again. In light of the peviously mentioned moongate we can only assume this is meant to symbolize the moon. He takes him to a basketball court where a battle of will power ensues. The game ends and movie too as the hero enters a tunnel with no visible light shown.

Man unified and gave birth to AI.. a singular consciousness that spawned an entire race of machines

SPOCK Odd. The expression on that mans ce. The mindlessness. Vacant contentment.

The Architect talks with the Oracle and tells her shes made a very dangerous game…. this implies that she might be a creative goddess and that the matrix was necessary for her game and that the Architect was the one in charge of or adminstrating the Matrix. Or that peraps they were cocreators. Some say the term Demiurge literally means half creator and in some Gnostic interpretations they share responsibility for the creation of this universe. Incidentally, freemasons call god the Great Architect of the universe.

KARR The Hunt will always continue, but in a new way. I intend to transform this ship into a vast simulation, populated with a varied and endless supply of prey.

Sheppard joins him and they both watch as the darkness envelops the naqahdah generator inside.

We manipulate people like crazy in filmsIts a tremendous release. I can make you feel any emotion I want you to feel at any time. Its a Machiavellian power we project gut to gut.

All the earlier changes your race has known took countless ages. But this is atransformation of the mind, not of the body. By the standards of evolution, it will be cataclysmicinstantaneous. It has already begun. You must ce this ct yours is the last generation of Homo sapiens. As to the nature of that change, we can tell you very little. We do not know how it is producedwhat trigger impulse the Overmind employs when it judges that the time is ripe. All we have discovered is that it starts with a single inidual always a ~childand then spreads explosively, like the formation of crystals round the first nucleus in a saturated solution. Adults will not be affected, for their minds are already set in an unalterable mould. In a few years, it will all be over, and the human race will have ided in twain. There is no way back, and no future for the world you know. All the hopes and dreams of your race are ended now. You have given birth to your successors, and it is your tragedy that you will never understand themwill never even be able to communicate with their minds. Indeed,they will not possess minds as you know them. They will be a single entity, as you yourselves are the sums of your myriad cells.You will not think them human, and you will be right.

After Homer accidentally pollutes the towns water supply, Springfield is encased in a gigantic dome by the EPA and the Simpson mily are declared fugitives.

I Dont want to give much away, but this movie truly is EPIC. The storyline is great, so is the animation. The movie is hilarious throughout, and also has one of the most emotional moments ever on The Simpsons. You can see just about every ce ever on The Simpsons and they keep subtle references, such as when Homer and Bart jump Springfield Gorge, the ambulance is still crashed into the tree.It definitely rewards longtime ns, but it is a great movie even for those who dont watch the Simpsons. CGI only adds to the excellent drawings, and it is very cool to see them on the big screen!If you love the Simpsons, Old or New, you will LOVE this.

Movie Theater Chain Stocks Collapmovie theater adsse During Dismal Summer

In the fourth quarter analysts are expecting big things fromJustice League,Thor RagnarokandStar Wars The Last Jedi, then another two Star Wars films next year. But even if the box office rebounds in the near term, it could be tough sledding for the long haul if premium video on demand becomes reality.

The issues that have plagued recent box office trends were mostly slatespecific and should not have any bearing on future expectations, he said in a research report.

Eric Wold of B.Riley, on the other hand, sees the drop in stock prices as a buying opportunity for Cinemark, Regal and AMC, due largely to upgrades at movie theaters.

Disney is next with a percent decline, followed by Twentieth Century Fox with a percent drop then Sony with a percent ll. Warner Bros. and Universal should rise percent and percent, respectively, while Lionsgate will shoot up percent, courtesy ofLa La LandandJohn Wick Chapter Two.

Even withIt, the scary clown movie from Warner Bros. andKingsman The Golden Circlefrom Twentieth Century Fox yet to come, when final thirdquarter numbers come in FBR Capital Markets analyst Barton Crockett predicts a domestic box office of . billion, which would be nearly a percent slide compared with the year prior.

Regal Entertainment , screens in theaters has seen shares plunge percent in the same time frame while shares of Cinemark Holdings , screens in theaters have dropped percent.

Studios may launch PVOD where consumers get a movie on their TV screens for about shortly after its release into theaters as early as this year, say some observers. MoffettNathanson Research analyst Robert Fishman estimates that PVOD could cost the movie exhibition industry million annually.

The largest chain, AMC Entertainment, with , screens in , theaters, has been hit hardest, its shares dropping a dramatic percent since Memorial Day while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained nearly percent.

Owners of Imax, which operates a network of , giant movie screens at theaters worldwide, watched their shares plunge percent while owners of National Cinemedia, the company most responsible for putting advertising on movie screens, saw their shares shed percent of their value since Memorial Day.

As for the studios that make and distribute the movies, Crockett sees Paramount ring the worst this year when he compares the top movies from that studio compared to its top the year prior. On those terms, he estimates a percent decline yearoveryear.

Until we get some resolution on PVOD, it will be difficult for the theater stocks to make sustained headway, says Steven Birenberg of Northlake Capital Management.

On a bullish note, moviegoers love the recliner seats and other amenities theater chains have been adding lately, but even there, Birenberg worries that some consumers will be of the attitude Tried it once, but it did not change my moviegoing frequency.

Ironically, yearoveryear totals will decline even though this years projected top three movies Beauty and the Beast,Star Wars The Last Jediboth from Disney andWonder Womanfrom Warner Bros. will have outperformed last years top three, which wereFinding Dory,Rogue One A Star Wars StoryandCaptain America Civil Warall three of which hail from Disney.

Even with a dramatic drop from one year to the next, Disney should dominate the other studios, with its top films raking in . billion in , ahead of secondplace Warner Bros. at . billion.

Because of a strong first quarter and what he predicts will be a strong fourth quarter, the box office should rebound for the entire year, but it will still ll . percent to . billion on an annual basis, Crockett predicts.

movie ads in newspapersAfter Pirates trade Andrew McCutchen local business pulls ads in owner Bob Nuttings newspapers in protest

The Pirates have claimed that they are going to be in the free agent market this season but given my experience as a Pirates n, Ill believe it when I see it. Nutting can claim being a smallmarket team and poor until the cows come home but we all know hes been a profit on this team for years so there isnt really any motivation to actually try to win or even sell the team.

Take it from a lifelong Pirates n, you learn to never trust a word the Pirates organization says when it comes to player personnel decisions. I was when the Pirates lost the NLCS and entered a near quarter century of sub. darkness. And when they had their recent renaissance, people knew in the back of their minds it would just be temporary.

One can only appreciate a beautiful skyline for so long before they want to see a half decent product out on the field who doesnt rely on minor league promotions to attract ns because the team isnt good enough. So when a company does something like this, even if it ultimately wont do anything, is a small victory. And for Weirton Medical Center, becomes the unofficial medical cility for dissatisfied ns of the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Rice University defensive lineman Blain Padgett was found dead in his apartment on Friday, the university confirmed in…

They got lucky in obtaining McCutchen and Cole and that bought a few years of fun but it was just a placebo effect as the Pirates only got out of the Wild Card game once. We all know the Pirates are just stuck in another quarter century of winless purgatory where the only silver lining Pirates ns receive is buying tickets on StubHub for pennies on the dollar and seeing classic bands perform postgame concerts along with fireworks.

movie ads in newspapersAmerican Advertising A Brief History

While advertising generated modern anxieties about its social and ethical implications, it nevertheless acquired a new centrality in the s. Consumer spendingfueled in part by the increased availability of consumer crediton automobiles, radios, household appliances, and leisure time activities like spectator sports and movie going paced a generally prosperous s. Advertising promoted these products and services. The rise of mass circulation magazines, radio broadcasting and to a lesser extent motion pictures provided new media for advertisements to reach consumers. President Calvin Coolidge pronounced a benediction on the business of advertising in a speech Advertising ministers to the spiritual side of trade. It is a great power that has been intrusted to your keeping which charges you with the high responsibility of inspiring and ennobling the commercial world. It is all part of the greater work of regeneration and redemption of mankind. This address can be found online at aLibrary of Congress site on Prosperity and Thrift, which contains many documents on consumer culture in the twenties. Advertisements, as historian Roland Marchand pointed out, sought to adjust Americans to modern life, a life lived in a consumer society.

In the s, industries ranging from soap to canned food to cigarettes introduced new production techniques, created standardized products in unheardof quantities, and sought to find and persuade buyers. National advertising of branded goods emerged in this period in response to profound changes in the business environment. Along with the manucturers, other businesses also turned to advertising. Large department stores in rapidlygrowing cities, such as Wanamakers in Philadelphia and New York, Macys in New York, and Marshall Fields in Chicago, also pioneered new advertising s. For rural markets, the Sears Roebuck and Montgomery Ward mailorder catalogues offered everything from buttons to kits with designs and materials for building homes to Americans who lived in the countrysidea majority of the U.S. population until about . By one commonly used measure, total advertising volume in the United States grew from about million in to nearly billion in .

Despite or because of its ubiquity, advertising is not an easy term to define. Usually advertising attempts to persuade its audience to purchase a good or a service. But institutional advertising has for a century sought to build corporate reputations without appealing for sales. Political advertising solicits a vote or a contribution, not a purchase. Usually, too, authors distinguish advertising from salesmanship by defining it as mediated persuasion aimed at an audience rather than onetoone communication with a potential customer. The boundaries blur here, too. When you log on to , a screen often addresses you by name and suggests that, based on your past purchases, you might want to buy certain books or CDs, selected just for you. A telephone call with an automated telemarketing message is equally irritating whether we classify it as advertising or sales effort.

Despite the ongoing market revolution, early and mid nineteenthcentury advertisements rarely demonstrate striking changes in advertising appeals. Newspapers almost never printed ads wider than a single column and generally eschewed illustrations and even special ces. Magazine ad s were also restrained, with most publications segregating advertisements on the back s. Equally significant, until late in the nineteenth century, there were few companies mass producing branded consumer products. Patent medicine ads proved the main exception to this pattern. In an era when conventional medicine seldom provided cures, manucturers of potions and pills vied for consumer attention with large, often outrageous, promises and ful, dramatic advertisements.

Since the s, American advertising has grown massively, and current advertising expenditures are eighty times greater than in that decade. New mediaradio, television, and the Internetdeliver commercial messages in ways almost unimaginable years ago. Beneath the obvious changes, however, lie continuities. The triad of advertiser, agency, and medium remains the foundation of the business relations of advertising. Advertising men and women still fight an uphill battle to eslish their professional status and win ethical respect. Perhaps the most striking development in advertising s has been the shift from attempting to market massproduced items to an undifferentiated consuming public to ever more subtle efforts to segment and target particular groups for specific products and brands. In the s, what Madison Avenue liked to call a Creative Revolution also represented a revolution in audience segmentation. Advertisements threw a knowing wink to the targeted customer group who could be expected to buy a Volkswagen beetle or a loaf of Jewish rye instead of allAmerican white bread.

Advertisements in colonial America were most frequently announcements of goods on hand, but even in this early period, persuasive appeals accompanied dry descriptions. Benjamin FranklinsPennsylvania Gazettereached out to readers with new devices like headlines, illustrations, and advertising placed next to editorial material. Eighteenth and nineteenthcentury advertisements were not only for consumer goods. A particularly disturbing form of early American advertisements were notices of slave sales or appeals for the capture of escaped slaves. For examples of these ads, click here for the Virginia Runaways Project site. Historians have used these advertisements as sources to examine tactics of resistance and escape, to study the health, skills, and other characteristics of enslaved men and women, and to explore slaveholders perceptions of the people they held in bondage.

Advertising agencies, formerly in the business of peddling advertising space in local newspapers and a limited range of magazines, became servants of the new national advertisers, designing copy and artwork and placing advertisements in the places most likely to attract buyer attention. Workers in the developing advertising industry sought legitimacy and public approval, attempting to disassociate themselves from the patent medicine hucksters and assorted swindlers in their midst.

In United States history, advertising has responded to changing business demands, media technologies, and cultural cons, and it is here, not in a fruitless search for the very first advertisement, that we should begin. In the eighteenth century, many American colonists enjoyed imported British consumer products such as porcelain, furniture, and musical instruments, but also worried about dependence on imported manuctured ads in newspapersAmerican Advertising A Brief History
