AVATAR: An Exercise in Animism and Transhumanism!
Posted by lamarzulli on December 28, 2009
My wife and I saw two great movies over the weekend and I’ll focus on one of them here today as I believe it just another in a long line of “propaganda” to condition the masses to the coming great deception! The movie was AVATAR. First the good stuff. Avatar is probably the most ambitious film in Director James Cameron’s portfolio. Millions were spent on achieving a realistic other-world experience that film-goers venture into, by using special 3-D glasses. Cameron has achieved his vision, of that there is no doubt. The visual effects are an eye-popping, stunning, breathtaking, tapestry, that creates an alien world that transfixed and transported me into the “fictional dream” of Avatar. I won’t go into the plot and characters, as others have covered this aspect of it, but instead will focus on what I believe are the blatant promulgation of Cameron’s world view. First off, the movie is, Dances With Wolves, set on another planet. There are so many similarities in that respect it’s hard not miss the connection. There is even one place where the main character warns the “chief,” of the indigenous people, that many “sky people” will come in the future. This echoes exactly what Jeff Dunbar tells the Sioux Indians in Dance with Wolves. But now onto the centrality of Cameron’s world-view. Like the recent film District 9, the movie explores the concept of what is human. What is it that makes us human? What are we? When dissecting the human brain it becomes apparent that there is no observer. There is no seat where consciousness resides. No place that we can point to as where this mysterious interface takes place, and yet we know that it does. When a person dies this interface between spirit, soul and body is broken and the body is left behind and becomes a lifeless shell. This is pushes us into the realm of the supernatural to look for answers. Cameron tells us that we are all connected, every tree, plant, shrub and insect are all part of the tapestry of life. While I agree that all life is, in a sense scared, the idea that we are connected is Animism and I don’t adhere to that.
Here is a definition: Animism (from Latin anima (soul, life)Segal, p. 14 ) is a philosophical, religious or spiritual idea that souls or spirits exist not only in humans and animals but also in plants, rocks, natural phenomena such as thunder, geographic features such as mountains or rivers, or other entities.
Once Cameron establishes this he then challenges what makes us uniquely human, as he raises the question of whether our consciousness can be transferred to another life form. In Avatar they achieve this transfer by having the entire village assemble together and under the leadership of the “tribes” Shaman, they sway and chant together as the mysterious, impersonal life force, called Aiwa, somehow moves the spirit from the films human protagonist, to his other body, his genetically manufactured AVATAR body, which is taller and stronger than his human one. In the real world, here on planet earth, Shamans and witch doctors, practice this same form of shape-shifting and they use drugs to establish an altered stated of consciousness, to achieve it. I believe that when this occurs a demonic entity then takes possession of the person. While Cameron’s movie is fiction it pushes us to accept the concept of Trans-humanism. From my point of view this is precisely what the Nephilim were thousands of years ago and now, in these last days we are being spoon-fed the same concepts. Does Avatar set us up to accept what Dr. Jacob’s and others who have studied and investigated the UFO phenomena warn us about, the creation a human/alien hybrid that will integrate with us? Are these hybrids human? Do they have souls? In closing, I believe that we are created in God’s image. We are unique in the universe in that respect. We are spirit beings that are encased in the shell of a human body and that is a great mystery.
