Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (2008)

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0367882/

– What is Predictive Programming?
– Alan Watt – Predictive Programming; Theory and Practice
– Vyzygoth Interviews Phillip and Paul Collins – Invoking the Beyond (Predictive Programming)

I could identify three major predictive programming themes in this movie.

     

  1. The Cold-War-inspired hatred for the Russians is given a good jolt once again. The Russians are the bad guys and the Americans are once again the good guys. The leader of the Russian bad guys (Cate Blanchett!) is a psychopathic individual who has a habit of stopping at nothing in order to attain what she wants. The gullible viewer is therefore helped in being persuaded to regard the Russians with scorn and contempt again. Regarding the tense and volatile situation with Iran – Russia – China, this imposition of anti-Russian sentiment on Western viewers seems rather well-timed given the state of the current geopolitical arena.
  2. The movie suggests that the development of human culture, and perhaps even humanity itself, at some point in the past experienced the presence of tangible alien beings from outer space. Indeed, the shape of the unearthed crystal skull is not traditionally human (unlike the actual genuine crystal skulls: http://www.crystalskulls.com/13-crystal-skulls.html) but seems to be rather like what is commonly referred to in Sci-Fi circles as that belonging to “Grey aliens.” Thus the Grey aliens have meddled in our own evolution, the movie suggests. To help the viewer get on the right propaganda feed-track even better, the movie near the end features nothing short of a rotating flying disc of which the Grey alien featured in the movie supposedly is native of. Therefore, we have a scenario that is quite popular in the alternative media wherein Grey aliens have interfered with our culture, possibly even having created us and arrived here on Earth in ‘flying saucers’ (or UFOs). This theme of course adds fuel to the fire to the mind of the viewer that we were created by physical alien beings who travelled here in flying saucer-like physical vehicles.There’s no room given to the possibility that there might be a more etheric or untangible factor responsible for the creation of humanity. The movie leaves untouched the possibility of spiritual beings (demons) being responsible for our creation and subsequent cultural evolution. Instead it seems to exclusively support the materialistic notion that physical or tangible beings (Grey aliens) created physical beings (=us humans without spirit). The alternative to this point of view would be, for instance, the Christian Gnostic ontological explanation that etheric beings (e.g. demons) created the physical part of our beings (humans minus spirit). I do not intend to ignite a debate on the ontology of our own existence and how we came to be but this is besides the point, the movie clearly favors the former exclusively physical interpretation. Propaganda is inherently one-sided, biased and uncompromising!It’s remarkable to say the least, that the Roman Catholic Church is now publicly endorsing the possibility of the existence of tangible space aliens (http://www.ufodigest.com/vaticanufos.html http://www.ufodigest.com/balducci.html http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/7399661.stm).

  4. The Russian commander is responsible for promoting the idea that the Hived Mind, a mind from a collective of interconnected beings, has a higher potency than the sum of its parts. She states that the Hived Mind defined by some group of people is “more powerful together than they [the group] can ever be apart.” I expect this to be precisely consistent with the propagandistic future sales-gospel for the brain-chip. I anticipate it to be marketed as being no less than God’s gift on Earth. The idea will be peddled to the public that it offers only benefits to you as you are being absorbed into a more supremely (read: divinely) intelligent collective. The viewer is thus drawn a little closer towards acceptance of the brain-chip, all the while not realizing that it will actually make him or her rather like an insignificant little workerbee, barren of any kind of mental, spiritual and physical freedom. The brain-chip is therefore nothing short of the death sentence for the individual human being. So take heed of any kind of propaganda slung in your way that would have you made believe otherwise!

  1. Nice one mate – brief and to the point. I can’t believe the bullshit in this film. What happened to the Indiana Jones we love from the eighties??? Of course I’m well aware it was made by the same elitist f***ers with their warped beliefs in eugenics – but these films are getting ridiculous now. It’s amazing that people can still keep the self-deceit active, it must take so much effort to remain ignorant today with the brave new world just around the corner and signposts everywhere we turn – specially in TV and cinema. I honestly don’t know how people do it but almost all of them do. I guess a combination of desensitisation and over-stimulation. What a surreal world we live in.

  2. Yeah, its so weird. Friends and family members told me to go see this film because it was great. So of I went and watched it. I sat there the whole film watching in disbelief. Propaganda, propaganda. What a great tool Hollywood is. So much power. As soon as I saw the Russians for some reason I laughed. I saw the the Greys I laughed. Yeah……It seemed the whole cinema was laughing and enjoying the film oblivious to what was going on. People really don’t have a clue.

  3. I was a big Indiana Jones fan, but this movie is a high candidate for Worst Movie of All Time. Did you see National Treasure II? It’s the same damn movie with different actors!

    There should be a law banning sequels. I’m also a big Star Trek fan, which is why I dread May 8th.

  4. You do realize this is a SCI FI movie, right? *Facepalms*. Good grief, if I took every fantasy movie as personally as you do I’d be offended left and right. Lighten up. And for the record, the Russians were involved and still are involved in a lot of shifty affairs, don’t kid yourself. As for the demon thing? Seriously, lighten up. As a follower of my Heavenly Father I found nothing wrong with enjoying a silly alien movie that proposed for the SAKE OF THE STORY that we were whatever we were. It’s called fantasy, and aliens look cool on screen. Too bad the movie just kinda sucked.

  5. This story is a warning for things to come, and to soften the blow for the less enlightened members of our world community. The idea that ‘aliens’ are a bad thing is media created. These beings are our brothers, with the same spirit we possess, they’re simply further on than us in terms of evolution and technological advancements. The latest Indiana Jones film is no different from the previous 3, Seek the Truth.
