The Pledge

For most viewers, The Prestige was a film about rival stage magicians in the Victorian Era, alternately seeking to top one another in the dank climate of emerging industrial revolution and technological wonder.  Lord Caldlow/Angiers (Hugh Jackman) is the secret nobleman who has a flair for the art of illusion, while Robert Borden and his twin (Christian Bale) are the working class stage hands who have devoted their lives to their art.  In the midst of this rivalry, the curious figure of Nikola Tesla enters (played by David Bowie) to interject the element of real magic, titled in the film, “wizardry.”  Both magicians are on a quest to sabotage the other, while seeking to perfect the greatest trick of all – the transported man.

Stage rivalry and obsession is what The Prestige is about, but it is also about much more.  After several viewings (as is my normal habit), my thesis began to congeal: The Prestige is about Hollywood and film-making itself.  And not only that, it is an industry that is an art of deception and illusion.  The director and the actors are in effect illusion artists, or con men, if you will.  The successful director is able to fool the audience into accepting that what is presented on the screen is real, even if it is evidently fantastical.  The magicians’ ingenieure, Mr. Cutter (Michael Caine), explains this principle of film as illusion at the beginning, which is to be applied to the film itself.  Cutter states:

“Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called “The Pledge”. The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course… it probably isn’t. The second act is called “The Turn”. The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you’re looking for the secret… but you won’t find it, because of course you’re not really looking. You don’t really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn’t clap yet. Because making something disappear isn’t enough; you have to bring it back. That’s why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call “The Prestige”.”

Director Christopher Nolan explains in “The Making of The Prestige” this is to be applied to both directing and the film itself as theatrical illusion: “For me, The Prestige is very much about film-making.  It’s very much about what I do.  It is also intended to suggest to the audience some of those ideas about how the film itself is spooling its narrative out to the audience.  You want people to be aware of the effect the film is having as it’s unfolding before their eyes.”  The Prestige follows this same tripartite structure, as it draws you into an ordinary story of human rivalry and obsession, the “Turn,” where the audience is looking for the secret of Angier and the Borden’s trick, but not truly looking, because like film, stage magic operates under the audience’s suspension of disbelief.  The audience “wants to be fooled.”  And in the end, the transported man must come back – reemerge or resurrect, as the final climax of the show.

The Turn

In order to properly understand Nolan’s film, we must consider the same principle elucidated concerning David Lynch films – twilight language.  Researcher Michael Hoffman defines “twilight language” as follows in his Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare:  “The path to unlocking this gnosis was centered in “twilight language,” a once nearly universal subliminal communication system used in Egypt, Babylon, the Indian subcontinent and among the Aztecs, consisting of a combination of numbers, archetypal words and symbols, which in our time are sometimes embedded in modern advertising, and in certain modern films and music…. In Oriental Tantra, the mantra (including dharanikavacayamala, etc.) is sonically calculated to induce a particular action.  It forms part of the original sanskrit concept of sandhyabhasa(twilight language).  In Tantra, ‘Sandhyabhasa…is a language of light and darkness…in this higher type of discourse, words have another, a different meaning: this is not to be openly discussed.”  (pg. 207) Continue reading

Magickal Kingdom Ultra: Escape From Tomorrow and Sinister Disney

What is Disneyland?  Is it a classic incarnation of Amerikana, or is it, nowadays at least, something more?  Is it harmless, family friendly entertainment where the imagination is able to run free, or is there more at work inside the nation’s largest theme park/entertainment complex?  Rumors and speculation have abounded for years of  bizarre, inexplicable events associated with the parks as well as on the cruise ship lines, odd images embedded in the films, even to the Disney family being involved in “brainwashing” and “incest,” according to news reports.  While most of these topics are supposedly laid to waste through snopes.com and other debunkers, I propose there is more than meets the All-Seeing Eye at work.

A recent independent film has been released called Escape From Tommorow, in which the theme park is presented as a descent into madness, where an average family embarks on something akin to a bad acid trip, experiencing strange encounters, demonic forces, sexual enticement and self-destruction.  The film utilizes classic mythological and fairy tale motifs, concomitant with classic Disney, as well as blending all of that with Freudianism, conspiracy memes and technocracy.  Having received mixed reviews, I find it particularly relevant to the question of Disney itself, as the film is both a satire of what has become of Amerikana, as well as connecting with other recently released Disney films, such as Maleficent, another telling of the Sleeping Beauty like Escape From Tomorrow.  While it may seem strange to say, it is not outside the realm of possibility from the occult perspective that multiple films are released around the same time, utilizing similar stories and themes with the intention of having a ritual effect.  While this could be mere coincidence, there could also be more at work.

Or, Gödel Versus the New World Order

By: Jay

In the land of the blind, the 80s black science guy with 80s black guy mustache is king.  In a recent interview, high priest of neo-Darwinian scientism, Neil de Grasse Tyson expounded the true profundity of his worldview.  Tyson stated on a recent podcast:

“interviewer: At a certain point it’s just futile.

dGT: Yeah, yeah, exactly, exactly. My concern here is that the philosophers believe they are actually asking deep questions about nature. And to the scientist it’s, what are you doing? Why are you concerning yourself with the meaning of meaning?

(another) interviewer: I think a healthy balance of both is good.

dGT: Well, I’m still worried even about a healthy balance. Yeah, if you are distracted by your questions so that you can’t move forward, you are not being a productive contributor to our understanding of the natural world. And so the scientist knows when the question “what is the sound of one hand clapping?” is a pointless delay in our progress.

[insert predictable joke by one interviewer, imitating the clapping of one hand]

dGT: How do you define clapping? All of a sudden it devolves into a discussion of the definition of words. And I’d rather keep the conversation about ideas. And when you do that don’t derail yourself on questions that you think are important because philosophy class tells you this. The scientist says look, I got all this world of unknown out there, I’m moving on, I’m leaving you behind. You can’t even cross the street because you are distracted by what you are sure are deep questions you’ve asked yourself. I don’t have the time for that. [Note to the reader: I, like Neil, live and work in Manhattan, and I can assure you that I am quite adept at crossing the perilous streets of the metropolis.]

interviewer [not one to put too fine a point on things, apparently]: I also felt that it was a fat load of crap, as one could define what crap is and the essential qualities that make up crap: how you grade a philosophy paper? [5] Continue reading

Edge of Tomorrow: Esoteric Analysis

Film poster revealing eternal return.

Film poster revealing eternal return.

 

 

By: Jay

Edge of Tomorrow is like Groundhog Day meets Oblivion, which sounds awful, yet somehow it works.  You get to see Tom Cruise killed over and over by tentacled black aliens.  As odd as that sounds, I recommend it.  After viewing it last night, readers should be warned that there will be spoilers below.  Simply put, the film is a presentation of Nietzsche’s eternal return, which is a restatement of the ancient view of cyclical history.  The rise of Christianity and biblical, linear history displaced the older, wherein man was viewed as trapped in a never-ending wheel of reincarnations and rebirths.  In this scheme, man’s actions in this life determine his higher or lower incarnation the next time around, with ultimate goal of transcending the cycle altogether. Eternal return thus differs, with the same characters returning to the same life and events they previously engaged in, leading to a fatalistic determinism.

In the film, Major William Cage (Cruise) is a propagandist in the near future for the NATO forces that have united to create the United Defense Force, or UDF, which functions as a high tech globalist supersoldier army, geared towards battling recent alien invaders.  Cage is forced into demotion and enlistment as a frontline soldier, having never seen combat.  Cage is a mere NATO/UDF propagandist, with his name itself signifying his existential and ontological state.  Cage is trapped in a psychical, temporal prison of constantly reliving his day of death.  The alien force, “Mimics,” are archons in the gnostic sense.  In gnostic cosmology, the archons have the ability to manipulate time into a kind of prison.  Certain humans are susceptible to the influence of the Mimics, and even have the presence of the mimics in their bloodlines.

The surprising element here is how close this story line matches up to real aspects of the actual new world order and its global conspiracy.  The US/NATO/London axis are the global enforcement arms of the new world order, with virtually all of humanity falling under its sway.  In the film, the “alien invasion” provokes the formation of the global government, unified finally under a common threat.  The idea of using space aliens as a manufactured threat is a real psy op, with President Reagan even pushing the idea publicly at the United Nations.  And to add more salt to the wound, the film’s usage of “alien bloodlines” is symbolic of the “elite” bloodlines of the real world, who do not intermarry or mix with the “profane” breed.  This is demonstrated in the film when Cage accidentally receives a blood transfusion, making him common and depriving him of his occult powers of vision.  The Mimics, who already know how the final battle will go, have the upper hand through advanced knowledge of the events.

Bilderberg 2014 Goals: End Resistance and Unify One World Order

Bilderberg 2014?

Bilderberg 2014?

 

By: Jay

Bilderberg 2014 is coming up – are you excited?  I know I am.  One reason I’m excited is those of us who have written and exposed these types of events for years aren’t mocked and ferociously opposed like we used to be.  Although I’ve only written about these topics for about 8 years, I had been vocal about them since age 18.  I should add as well that I am a late bloomer compared to writers like Jim Tucker and Daniel Estulin, who have been there all along exposing Bilderberg.  In that span of time, the Internet has increased awareness of these international corporate syndicalist entities far more than I would have ever expected.  Another reason I’m excited is the intel coming out of Bilderberg, which appears to be more worry about losing grip on the “unipolar” world they once had, as knowledge of their existence expands and as other big players like Russia (no longer welcome at the annual meetings) begin to question the sanity of having a single global technocracy try to rewrite all of existence.

In fact, my college professors mocked me for bringing up Bilderberg over the years, but now, Bilderberg is something that has been forced into mainstream news.  The mainstream so-called news for years would ridicule and laugh about anyone who dared mention the words, as did most of the faux conservative and liberal talk radio hosts.  While the ping-pong of gobbledygook back and forth on inane nonsense topics continues, Bilderberg will reportedly meet in Copenhagen, Denmark this Thursday at the Marriot Hotel or at another lesser-known secret location, Kokkedal Castle.  Before delving into the plans this year, let us review our notes from last year, as the focus was transhumanism, surveillance and the passing of the torch to the acolytes of the tech industries.  As I explained last year:

“Intelligence expert Stephen Dorrill writes about Bilderberg in his MI6 as follows: “In an effort to cement western co-operation in the midst of the Cold War, the first Bilderberg conference was held in May in the small Dutch town of Oosterbeck at the hotel of “Bilderberg,” from which the meeting took its name.  It was seen as an opportunity for shapers of opinion among elite groups in Europe to speak with one voice to their counterparts in the United States, who feared differences over European integration and Eastern Europe would create misunderstandings.  Funding came courtesy of the Dutch government and the CIA…” (MI6, pg 508)  Dorrill’s book can hardly be called “conspirtatorial.”  It is a standard treatise, though critical, of MI6 and British Intelligence.  Dorrill’s mainstream work was explaining Bilderberg’s purpose years ago, as did Rockefeller’s Memoirs, all the while the Idiocracy media parroting the lie that no such entity exists.  In fact, Bilderberg was instrumental in founding the EU and the Euro, so that it is irrelevant is absurd.”

And,

“Bilderberg is therefore a manifestation of the world government written about in Tragedy and Hope by Dr. Carroll Quigley that I have quoted several times.  Quigley wrote as follows concerning the Anglo-American establishment that both Rockefeller and Dorrill discuss.  Quigley, the Royal Institute and CFR chronicler, states:

Two of the most difficult topics that cause such a ruckus among haters and critics of the subject matter presented on sites like mine are fake news and ritual murders.  For most, the concept of a ritual murder is unheard of, while fake news is equally as implausible and ridiculous.  These two nefarious topics are not just unbelievable to the public, but suggest a deeper significance in regard to the mass psyche.  In this article I’m going to highlight that connection.  One of the most common questions asked by those who see such claims and immediately react to evidence presented is “Why?” Why would anyone go to this trouble?  Why would powerful players use media and ritual murder to manipulate?  I intend to answer those questions…

Santa Barbara Shooter Psy Op the First “Men’s Rights” False Flag

Sandy Hook, Part II. Rated PG-13

By: Jay

In a tizzy of media fury, the latest supposed mass gunman/internet weirdo serial killer has emerged with a new angle: “Men’s rights” and “misogyny.”  However, the latest installment also follows the classic pattern of the recent psy ops of Cho at Virginia Tech, Anders Breivik, Jared Loughner, James Holmes and Adam Lanza.  It is in this pattern that we see the evident fraud manifest and this pattern, I will argue, is the key to identifying when these events, from Manson to Columbine, from Cho to Rodgers, are real or staged.

The recent boogeyman, Elliot Rodger, is the son of Hunger Games assistant producer Peter Rodger.  Immediately following the shooting that has supposedly left seven dead, liberal media is fingering males, gun owners and masculinity as the problem.  Any website that is visited by anyone or linked by anyone is thereby implicated in mass murder.  Never mind how rational or coherent this dubious association is, the logic-free media was primed and ready to immediately lump all “conservatives,” “men,” “right wingers,” misogynists” and “men’s rights” site visitors all into the same bucket – you’re all American Psycho serial killers!

The pattern that indicates the events are staged or planned are as follows, based on the past big media psy ops:

1. The killer/suspect is associated with the establishment in some relatively high level way.  Loughner was a fan of, and had attended Giffords’ events.  Breivik was associated with bizarre “Knights Templar” and masonic groups, Holmes was involved in advanced mind control programs, and Lanza’s father did have a connection to the Libor rigging scandal.  Now, with Elliot Rodger, there is a connection to high level Hollywood.  In any major media psy op of this nature the actor in the scenario is someone chosen from among the establishment’s own ranks or outer circles, often with some familial connection to military intelligence.

Hollywood Occult Brainwashing in Lynch’s ‘Mulholland Drive’

“‘I learned that just beneath the surface there’s another world, and still different worlds as you dig deeper.’ – David Lynch

By: Jay

The Academy Award-nominated 2001 work of David Lynch, Mulholland Drive, is remembered by most as a macabre, satirical nightmare dreamscape of Neo-noir centering around a typical girl next door’s dream of becoming the next Hollywood starlet.  That is about the only thing viewers can agree the film is about.  Reviewers speak of “surrealism,” “imagination,” “nightmares,” and a few of the more philosophical pieces look at semiotics in relation to the performance at Club Silencio, yet no one seems able to truly crack the language of Mulholland, even with Lynch’s clues and hints.  In my analysis, I want to propose something radically different – Mulholland follows Lost Highway as a similar story of Hollywood dark side, but with a new twist, revealing actual occult brainwashing techniques.  Not only that, Lynch’s film will make “twilight language” references to a host of esoteric subjects, including the Manson murders and the CIA’s MKULTRA mind control programs.

Before delving into that topic, author Michael Hoffman defines “twilight language” as follows in his Secret Societies and Psychological Warfare:  “The path to unlocking this gnosis was centered in “twilight language,” a once nearly universal subliminal communication system used in Egypt, Babylon, the Indian subcontinent and among the Aztecs, consisting of a combination of numbers, archetypal words and symbols, which in our time are sometimes embedded in modern advertising, and in certain modern films and music…. In Oriental Tantra, the mantra (including dharani, kavaca, yamala, etc.) is sonically calculated to induce a particular action.  It forms part of the original sanskrit concept of sandhyabhasa (twilight language).  In Tantra, ‘Sandhyabhasa…is a language of light and darkness…in this higher type of discourse, words have another, a different meaning: this is not to be openly discussed.”  (pg. 207)

In my Lost Highway analysis, I mentioned that David Lynch is a fan of Buddhist and zen philosophy.  Presumably, he is also aware of this Tantric conception of twilight language and its significance in terms of using and manipulating symbols and events.  The opening of that analysis is appropriate for Mulholland Drive, as well:

“The telling of the story is non-linear, yet influenced heavily by classic 1940s Noir. Lost Highway is influenced by zen philosophy and Jungian dreamscapes, but as for the deeper occult elements, it’s necessary to understand why the stories are presented in a interlinking duality, as they are in Mulholland Drive. Zen philosophy is concerned with duality and its transcendence, as ultimate principles, as well as with the individual’s particularized psyche, and its relation to the whole of reality. Zen is therefore a quasi-religious philosophy concentrated on ultimate metaphysical principles, known in philosophy historically as the problem of the one and the many. For Lynch, these philosophical questions are not just abstract philosophy, but also relate directly to the psyche in its conscious and unconscious/sleep states.”

Did Tykwer’s 2009 ‘The International’ Predict Banker Deaths?

Film poster. They own everything.

Film poster. They own everything.

 

By: Jay

In film analysis found in alternative news it is often the norm to look for hidden symbols and all-pervasive evil codes, as if every artistic venture were controlled by shadowy black ops commanders and occultists. We must avoid being too negative and falling into a myopic view of the world. Some films are good propaganda and deliver a positive message: One of those positive messages is found in The International. Tom Tykwer’s 2009 film is a stunning expose of the true to life inner workings of the global banking crime syndicate, otherwise known as the new world order. And as an even more interesting question, did Tywker’s film also predict or foreshadow the deaths of numerous high level bankers of late?

The film stars Naomi Watts as a New York Assistant District Attorney “Eleanor Whitman” and Clive Owen as Interpol agent “Louis Salinger” on the trail of the killer(s) of a prominent banker Interpol is trying to flip from the IBBC, the International Bank of Business and Credit.  The IBBC in the film matches up to a couple real banks, like the Bank for International Settlements, the BIS, or the BCCI, the Bank of Credit and Commerce International.   The first is the elite Swiss Bank seated at the top of the world banking empire in Basle Switzerland.  A product of the last century of globalization, Council on Foreign Relations historian Dr. Carroll Quigley gives the inside skinny in his Tragedy and Hope  and discusses Lord Milner’s Round Table Groups, upon which the RIIA, Council on Foreign Relations and the elite BIS are based.  Quigley writes:

“The powers of financial capitalism had a far-reaching plan, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole… Their secret is that they have annexed from governments, monarchies, and republics the power to create the world’s money…  -pg. 324 Continue reading

Global Green Luciferian Government

 

The Club of Rome's Fake Green Revolution.

The Club of Rome’s Fake Green Revolution.

By: Jay

Arguably the central concern of those favoring a corporate global centralized government (along with technology and energy) is the issue the climate and environment.  Both the environment and climate relate closely to energy, as some aspect of the environment will be the source of energy.  Whether it’s food or petroleum, all life revolves around energy and its control.  As I’ve written before, human action itself is also energetic, thus the idea of full spectrum dominance must naturally focus on the control of human energy and the natural resources that surround humanity.  Consider this ridiculous MTV ad that threatens some kind of amorphous doom if nothing is done in 36 days?

 

 

To the average reader and so-called academic, the indoctrination given from public education and higher academia is that the modern world has accidentally put itself in a bind due to limited resources and overpopulation.  The university system almost universally propagates the dogmatic worldview of limited energy and resources and overpopulation that will inevitably lead to our catastrophe as a “civilization.”  So the mythological narrative goes, unless immediate actions are taken to halt production, local market capitalism, biofuels and carbon emissions, the earth is teetering on the ledge of apocalypse, while human life is doomed.  As a child of the 80s, I recall seeing endless news stories and warnings about “pollution” and “overconsumption” that would lead to the loss of all rain forests and the death of all the whales.  The culprit: too many humans and too many automobiles.  Yet here we are in the next millennia, and no one talks about the whales or the rain forests.  Yet we were supposed to all be dead when those disappeared, because a huge hole would open up in the ozone layer, and we’d all be fried.

Club of Rome propaganda. The same phony cataclysmic predictions con men always use.

Club of Rome propaganda. The same phony cataclysmic predictions con men always use.

The reality: none of this is true.  While it is true that there are plenty of examples of real pollution and real environmental dangers, these are purposefully ignored, while the faux environmental “calamities” are hyped up day and day out, with hundreds of think tanks churning out endless white papers on global cooling, er, global warming, er climate change.  What these names changes clearly suggest is the not-so-clever work of PR firms to repackage the mythology according to the ever-changing flux of public opinion.  Since evidence began to emerge of that the earth was not headed for an ice age as Paul Ehrlich screamed, the new advertising campaign for the 90s became “global warming.”  Then, as it emerged that “scientists” were altering their data to fit the models the international corporations like BP wanted, it became “climate change.”  Why it became climate change will be evident in a moment.  More recently, emails have been exposed that the sources of the funding for IPCC are precisely the entities that want to promote socialism, depopulation and deindustrialization.  Forbes reports of the emails: Continue reading
