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.

    Avatar 1. the incarnation of a Hindu deity.
    Avatar movie, Second Life, Simms, and that ilk, all trying to tell us that our present life/condition stinks and wouldn’t it be better if we were skinnier, better looking, more sexy, smarter, richer etc… All counter to the LORD’s Word, be content with such things as ye have, for HE has said He would never leave us nor forsake us. Personally I am glad I didn’t waste my time/money on the movie (even though I’m a big fan of Sc/fi. But for others out there, it is going to be a real education on a false spirituality.

    Haven’t seen it yet but look what was passed while we were sleeping read the following?

    Examiner Article: “U.S. placed under international police-state”

    Link: http://www.examiner.com/x-3704-Columbia-Conservative-Examiner~y2009

    The article indicates that quietly former President Reagans law was changed and signed to now allow Interpol to police U.S. Citizens over and above our regular police, read below.

    Excerpt: “What, exactly does this mean? It means that INTERPOL now has the full authority to conduct investigations and other law enforcement activities on U.S. soil, with full immunity from U.S. laws such as the Freedom of Information Act and with complete independence from oversight from the FBI.

    In short, a global law enforcement entity now has full law-enforcement authority in the U.S. without any check on its power afforded by U.S. law and U.S. law enforcement agencies.”

      Dear Joe,

      First: In your response regarding the movie AVATAR, you referred to a link “Examiner Article: “U.S. placed under international police-state.”

      When I tried to link to this site for further reading, I received a message that it was “forbidden”. It indicated that I didn’t have the authority to access it. Can you refer me to an open link that can be accessed? If so, I would appreciate it.

      In the meantime, I’ll look for it on Infowars.com and see if Alex Jones has it in his archives.

      Regarding the movie AVATAR: Lynn’s article concerning the movie was right on. Although I believe he was a bit too generous in his compliments of the movie. I, personally, cannot sit through even excellent, state of the art, cinematography when presented in the context of such blatant deception.

      Cameron may be a talented producer, but the talent was not all his. This kind of technological “talent” is inspired through the “channeling” of non-human beings of ancient origin, known as fallen angels, demons, aliens, spirit guides, the spirit of anti-christ, etc… Different titles, perhaps, but all of the same source.

      This movie is absolutely preparing the world for the appearance of the Nephilim, the offspring of the fallen ones (Satan’s angels), and it is one of the greatest deceptions of all time. Lynn is correct in the assumption that we are being prepared for the advent of their coming. Unfortunately, I believe that their coming is sooner than we think.

      Joe, what is expedient in the times that we are living in, is to understand that the undermining of our nation’s sovereignty (indeed, the sovereignty of all nations) is coming from all angles and on all levels; spiritually, financially, politically, and morally. As you stated, we as a people are asleep, and terrible political advents are taking place under our noses. People are filling their minds with all sorts of distractions and pleasures; movies, sports, TV, false political agendas and causes, etc., while our nation is being taken over. And while I agree with you, completely, regarding your concerns over a worldwide police state, I must point out that we are also under great spiritual attack as a nation.

      Movies such as AVATAR, are not just mindless entertainment, they are part of the spiritual/political agenda of the NWO elite, to lead us as a nation into even deeper complacency and total spiritual darkness.

      AVATAR is diabolical in every sense of the word. It is New Age pantheism, Hinduism, shamanism, etc., packaged in a tug-at-your-heart-strings representation of a primitive, innocent, indigenous people of another planet, being victimized, of course, by humans (who, by the way, happen to be God’s creation).

      In truth, these Navi, are not even beings, let alone human beings… There is no such race! The story is fiction. However, the Navi are representatives of a reality that isn’t fiction, and they are not innocent. They represent demonic, reptilian beings, (aliens) with a deadly agenda. Not of another planet, but of the pit of hell… They are the ancient ones, dressed up in yet another disguise. It’s almost humerous to me that even their eyes are reptilian, yet people don’t see it… Give them the “human” sentiments and emotions such as love, rejection, hurt, pain, etc… and people don’t suspect a thing!

      I must also concur with Lynn that the movie is propaganda, in the sense that it is anti-Americanism, thus anti-Christian (“Americanism” in regard to the great Christian nation we once were). It is also anti-human, thus anti-God, as we are his creation. This is one of Satan’s newer, yet very productive tactics; to elicit sympathy for aliens, representing them as victims of mankind, thus causing us to side with them against ourselves!

      I could go on and on concerning this movie, but suffice it to say that, in summary, AVATAR is one of the most dangerous movies ever to be foisted upon the unsuspecting, gullible public. We, as Christians, need to open our eyes to the deceptive nature of this movie, and understand what it’s true purpose is. Then we need to warn other’s of what it is all about. We also need to pray, “unceasingly” and put on the full armour of God… That we might “stand” in this evil day. Ephesians 6:10…

      Blessings, in Christ our Lord,

      Kathy

  3. Technocalyps, TRANSHUMANIST documentary

    Technocalyps is an intriguing three-part documentary on the notion of transhumanism by Belgian visual artist and filmmaker Frank Theys. The latest findings in genetics, robotics, artificial intelligence, bionics and nanotechnology appear in the media every day, but with no analysis of their common aim: that of exceeding human limitations. The director conducts his enquiry into the scientific, ethical and metaphysical dimensions of technological development. The film includes interviews by top experts and thinkers on the subject worldwide, including Marvin Minsky, Terence McKenna, Hans Moravec, Bruce Sterling, Robert Anton Wilson, Richard Seed, Margareth Wertheim, Kirkpatrick Sale, Ralph C. Merkle, Mark Pesce, Ray Kurzweil, Rabbi Youssouf Kazen, Rael and many others.

    interesting they are gigantic in stature. very nephil-esque.
    i haven’t seen the movie yet, especially after the reviews making it out to be dances with wolves. i just can’t sit through movies much any more.

    so when’s disclosure?

  5. Excellent commentary on the film and Cameron’s world-view. On the bright side, while he was making Avatar he had to quit digging for the tomb of Jesus!

    Hi Lynn!

    I never thought of the animism angle to Avatar before, but it certainly makes much sense considering the movement towards transhumanism. What I call, the pervasive convergence towards the New World Order singularity.

    In a preview piece that I wrote on the ALIEN Project, I made mention of the fact that Cameron’s first entry into film making was the movie entitled Xenogenesis, here are several selected excerpts from that article on that and the symbolism with Avatar:

    … Like his previous films, Avatar utilizes imagery and symbolism that hints at a secret knowledge of the esoteric concepts and traditions, providing a glimpse into the spiritual essence of the Great Work of the Ages and significantly seems to point to the genesis of mankind. From the movie promotion, you can clearly see that practically all of the posters (American and International) released for Avatar, presents the image of the single eye. This represents the All-Seeing Eye. The most important symbol of the Illuminati, Freemasonry and the Vatican Church State – the Holy See. The All-Seeing Eye is the official omniscience ritual worship sign of Lucifer, the Fallen Arch Angel. Throughout history and ancient mythology, this sign has been represented by deities such as Nimrod of Babylon, Ra, Osiris and Horus of Egypt, and Dionysus of Thrace and Greece. In other places, Lucifer is also known as Apollo, Baal, Zeus, Jupiter, Prometheus, Poseidon, Orion, Moloch, Serapis, Thammuz, Hercules, Atus, Shiva, Saturn, The Centaur, Sabasius, Adoni, Hermes, The Boy Plutus, and many more…

    The representation of the All-Seeing Eye is interwoven practically throughout every major culture and is also manifested as the Sun God or Solar Deity, the Winged Serpent, the Winged Disk and the Horned emblem. Now, Cameron is known to be a 33rd Degree Freemason and a member of the Order of the Eastern Star, whose most important mission is to usher in the Masonic Christ… one of the primary colors of the Order of the Eastern Star is the color blue and this color is literally painted all over Avatar. The color represents the first three degrees of Freemasonry, known as the blue degrees and also signifies the ruling bloodline. This color is clearly seen throughout Cameron’s work, whether as a writer, director or producer…

    Perhaps, this is what Cameron is pointing us to. The Sirius connection. The mural at the Central Hall at Oslo City Hall, where Obama received his Nobel Peace Prize, depicting Norwegian history and legends; definitely echoes that. Large blue entities helping a smaller being onto a path through a gate. After all, spirals are usually seen as a gateway between worlds and the spiral show was the semiotic link with Obama’s award ceremony. There is obviously some connection here with humanity, Sirius, Isis, Horus and Osiris. What it really is, I’m not really sure.

    One of Cameron’s most famous work was The Terminator series, a film about the Savior of mankind, from a world overrun by machines. The God-Man. The Messiah. The Apotheosis. John Connor. JC resonating Jesus Christ. The film was distributed by Orion Pictures, symbolic of Osiris with obvious linkages to the Freemasonic theories of man’s creation and evolution through the Sirius Star Systems. Like Avatar, in Terminator, Cameron used the hybrid machines as a symbolic reference to the creation of an offspring different from the parents. A theme that seems to be central in all of his work, extending from his first work on the 1978 film Xenogenesis, where a woman and man embark on a mission to create new life cycles in space…

    …this is probably where the answer lies. The Xenogenesis. The symbolism around the All-Seeing Eye, Pentagram, and the color Blue are obviously a reference to Sirius. As Above, So Below. According to Wikipedia, Sirius has an apparent magnitude of 1.46 and is considered as the brightest star in the night sky, almost twice as second brightest star, Canopus, and can be seen from almost every inhabited region of the Earth’s surface, and is described by several researchers as “sea blue.” with several traditions describing it as the blue star. The Pentagram is often interpreted as a cross in many cultures, such as Greece, Rome and Babylon; similar to how the cross is revered in the Christian faith. This cross is also found within the Order of the Eastern Star symbol as well as the pentagon, and crown symbols. Could this be the message? Look at the juxtaposition of the eyes of the lead characters from Avatar with the Sirius Star System in the next picture, is that the answer that Cameron is pointing us to? The terraforming and development of Earth by extraterrestrial beings from Sirius, populating the planet with humanoid hybrids, a cross between Neanderthal humans and the the alien gene? The Xenogenesis? Did this happen in our past? If so, what does it mean for our future?

    ….

    I’m hoping to do a full review soon.

    Keep up the good work.

    lynn,

    yes i saw avatar over the weekend…
    and once again we get the new age spiritism shoved down our throats…
    although it is dressed up in the finest of neato cgi and special effects!

    camerons biggest problem is how to dress up his new age religion to make it palatable
    for the “unwashed masses”…

    we are asked to believe that ‘possession’ of another persons body is merely ‘technology’-
    also the mixing of human dna with alien dna is another portrayal of ‘technology’

    but since the special effects are so awesome, we just unblinkingly take it all in…

    once again we are supposed to feel sorry for the aliens,
    and feel ashamed about being (american) humans…

    wow it almost makes a person think that the movie industry is being controlled by aliens…

    • Doug said

      You might be surprised as to how much is being controlled by these “aliens”

      The more you think about how things work, the more plausible that becomes.

      I have an idea that hybridization and implantation may be an effective control mechanism. When Antichrist is revealed, it could be how it all goes down so easily.

    • Tina said

      We are definitely being desensitized. But as 1 Peter 5:8 says we are to be sober and diligent because our adversary, the devil, walks about seeking whom he may devour. If we’re not in the Word, if we’re not aware and guarding ourselves from these “attacks” we’ll be swept away like the rest of our culture. I think of another verse of Scripture…Philippians 4:8. “Think on these things…”

    It appears that most of the reviewers of this movie are simply MORONS

    This is a Science Fiction Movie which means it is MAKE BELIEVE – or – FANTASY

    IF it was FICTION it would be a different situation, but it’s not.

    Who cares what non-existatn beings believe in. They don’t live here on earth so they are not Nephilim or anything related. How STOOOOOPID are you people?

    If this movie location was on earth it would be a different story all together.

    And as far as Dances with Wolves – I did not get that at all.

    What I saw was what happened when EVIL people came to this country and simply tried to exterminate the Native Americans with abandon. They thought they were savages etc. and they had no moral compass whatsoever.

    The early Americans were murderers and loved it because they did not equate the Native Americans with humans.

    You people are simply STOOOPID when it comes to not only taking things out of context but trying to equate some sort of agenda when there may not be one at all.

    I am simply tired of you people showing your true colors – JACK ASSES. – DONKEYS for short.

    I pity you when you sound an alarm and act like the boy who cried wolf.

    My question is what is your agenda – or are you just sheep who follow JESUS but are looking elsewhere to get some attention.

    Let’s stick to what is relevant to our times and the coming deception etc. and quit going down the Rabbit trail after imaginary stories that are just that.

    I actually enjoyed the movie and was rooting for the creatures because the humans were no better that what they are here on earth, murderers.

    Jesus did not die for the Nephilim nor for those people on Pandora – they don’t exist STOOPID – so why are you trying to mix apples and onions?

    Let’s stick to the facts and see things for what they really are and not chase some imaginary delustions and get others chasing that same thing needlessly

    Shame on all of you.

      HI Pancho – We’re not stupid people or Jackasses – or even Donkey’s! Obviously you just don’t get my review of the movie, but let me say this my review is, in my opinion accurate. What is portrayed is Trans-humanism. You might not like that, but that is exactly what it is. If you recall I also pointed out that the movie was eye popping and visually stunning. And by the way, there is certainly no shame is pointing these things out. If you continue to post here, I have two rules. The first is no bad language. There are other terms you can use other than calling people jackasses. The other is that there is no ad hominem attacks. Both will not be tolerted! If you’re not sure what that is, than you my friend, are perhaps the ‘stupid’ one.

  12. Lucid dreamer said

    I loved this film and do not view it as bleakly as others.

    It did send mixed messages but IMO it was left spiritually ambiguous enough to allow all to get something different from it. I think Cameron wanted to appeal to a wider range of audience this time.

    God said our bodies are a temple. We are to take care of the temple. I also do not see how the message of “quit trashing the earth” is anti-christian either as the bible says we are to be good stewards of the earth. The earth “groans and travails”. No one will ever convince me that nature does not have at least some sense of awareness. Why would God use worlds equated with a women in labor?

    You have to admit, New agers and pagans, even if unaware of that passage, have passed up the Christians in being good stewards. This movie reminded me of that order…take care of the earth.

    I also got the Indian view of it. In our history some of the early settlers had no problem killing the natives, they used the bible to justify it, claiming since there was no mention of the native Americans then they were subhuman or even “red devils”.

    Man still does this now. There are Jewish human rights activist in Israel who are trying bring charges or at least accountability to the extreme radical Rabbis for inciting violence. They are telling congregations that “thou shall not kill”, means you cannot take the life of a Jew, that it does not apply to taking the life of a gentile. Don’t believe me? Google the newspapers in Israel. Many have English versions. I read them every day.

    In the movie when Col. Miles Quaritch whips the others up before they go into battle, laughing at the Na’vi’s belief in their deity, and tells them they will destroy the savages, the camera pans on the soldiers, they are all agreeing, nodding their heads and yelling in approval. Most were from racial groups once persecuted as subhuman, as savages. I do not think that was coincidental in the film.

    In one way we are all connected. Non of us can survive without the planet. And plants are more than a food source, think of all the other functions, including photosynthesis. And if you think about it humankind and the world we live in is carbon based, Break us all down and we consist of 6 protons, 6 neutrons, and 6 electrons. That is a fact, perhaps some see that as Trans-humanism? I realize you probably meant it as an extreme.

    I do believe animals have souls, thought not like humans. God said he even cares about the lilies in the fields and that his eye is on the sparrow. He also said that one day the lion will lay down with the lamb. He cares about animal and plant life.

    The Na’vi were not Nephalim, they were their own race of people. It was the avatars that were hybrids. A mix of humans and Na’vi DNA. The avatars could not animate without the human driver. basically they were created to match identically the brain waves of their driver and could only work for that one person. Jake was an identical twin of his brother whom the avatar was created for. After his brothers death the avatar was not lost, they found the perfect solution in Jake. BTW, the earth was so depleted of natural resources that his brother did not even get a plain wooden coffin.

    I think many missed the more subtle symbolism. The planet they went to raze was Pandora. In mythology Pandora was the first human woman created. She could not resist and opened the infamous Pandora’s box. It brought the world pain and suffering. But it also brought hope. We are never left without hope.

    Several of my friends have noted that if you add a few letters to Eywa, their mother of all, it becomes Jehovah or Yahweh. As I said, it seems intentional, making the overtones in the film more ambiguous.

    Anyone catch the full name of the only wise person on the mission? It was Grace Augustine, the brilliant scientist. They had no respect for Grace.

    Towards the end when the razing begins, Jake asks the great mother for help, and is told by his love interest Neytiri that….. Eywa never takes sides.

    But because of Grace and the interaction with Eywa, Eywa becomes more personal, more like a parent, and she takes sides, bringing justice for her children.

    I probably would have gotten sick if Grace was a perfect Saint. She was still very human, no saint, but stood for what was right in the end.

    As I said, a huge mixture with various spiritual overtones that do not necessarily mix, but I loved this film and saw it as thought provoking.
