Deconstructing the Movies of George Lucas: part 3

Sigh...Yeah, yeah, I'm still writing about Star Wars. Get over it.

Lucas: “Color plays an extremely important part in all these films. Red signifying evil, the red blood, the red devil, the red as an accent color for the bad guys. The bad guys mostly exist in a black and white world. The good guys live in an organic world, which is either browns, light browns, tans, or greens, with the blue sky and stuff…which has to do with that…philosophical feeling of a world of absolutes, a mechanical world where things are rigid and absolute, they’re black and white, as opposed to the organic world where it’s more natural…”

On the emperor’s throne room, Lucas said, “Part of this stuff…the window looks like a web…which it does in all of the Sith and Imperial stuff…you’ll see it in Darth Vader’s…tie fighters…it’s a motif we carry through for the bad guys…and he is that spider luring the flies into his web, cause he’s the plotter, he’s the devious one."

As with Luke ‘n friends and the Rebel Alliance, a rebellion can come from a small group of citizens taking up arms -- the Huns, American colonists, French peasants, Vietcong, etc. They’re scrappers, a motley crew or whoever they can find, but they have heart. I think the ideal way to rebel is to be nonviolent -- like Gandhi and MLK jr. organizing boycotts to hurt commerce, upsetting the system, considering that corporations run things. Today, many activist groups, like, make it a point to use non-violence. However, Star Wars’ action and violence is entertaining, I admit.

“In this case the story is of a very primitive society, apparently weak society, who is able to overcome a very technological society.” Lucas says in the episode 6 commentary track. “This film was written during the Vietnam War where small group of ill-equipped people were able to overcome a mighty power. It’s not a new idea. Attila the Hun was able to overrun the Roman empire. The American colonies were able to overrun the British. And it’s always the same story. The Roman empire had huge mechanical advantage and training advantage over the Huns, but the Huns were still able to overwhelm them with enthusiasm and their humanist and their belief in what they were doing. And that was the main theme for the overall downfall of the Empire. It was basically overcome by humanity…in the form of cute little teddy bears.”

Ob-Wan explains, “The Force is what gives a Jedi his power. It’s an energy field created by all living things. It surrounds us, penetrates us, it binds the galaxy together…” and later “…let go your conscious self and act on instinct…Your eyes can deceive you. Don’t trust them….Stretch out with your feelings.”

Is the Force a science-based thing or faith-based thing? I say yes. It’s both.

Lucas has said his midi-chlorian idea is based mitochondria, a symbiotic organism living with cells, necessary for things like cell-division -- being a metaphor that for all life in the universe and/or a society to get along, they have to work together, learn to co-exist in balance, peacefully. We need to cooperate, depend on each other, help each other, for “mutual advantage.” The bigger picture, the deeper science I relate the Force to is also quantum theory which, I admit am not an expert on, is said to be close to coming up with a theory for explaining everything. It would explain the basic building block of everything, an energy particle, being both a wave and a particle, explain time/space, explain the soul, explain the cyclical vortex nature of the universe, that it’s a giant machine made intelligently -- explaining god. Math can explain that there is a god. Nassim Haramein is a key figure. Many theoretical physicists are spiritual. Stuart Hameroff talks about quantum physics and consciousness.

Considering that matter is not solid, the basic building blocks are energy particles vibrating at different frequencies. Yoda says, “Its energy surrounds us….and binds us. Luminous beings are we…not this crude matter. You must feel the Force around you--Here, between you, me…the tree, the rock, everywhere! Yes, even between the land and the ship.”

Yoda,”You must unlearn what you have learned…”

Today, many people probably love Star Wars because they say the Force idea represents their religion. I would say, yeah, it's all that in a way, but that’s not even the half of it. Before there was what we think of as the modern day religions, like the judeo-christian-islamic stuff (really a construct and tool of politics and power), before and after the era of Jesus, there were the mystery religions or mystery schools around the world. Author John Lash says, “the initiates of mysteries, who were truly educators, they taught people to read and write, the sciences, the arts, they founded the great universities and libraries of the ancient world…the Mysteries were more like a collegiate or educational system; this is how they operated…it was through that they encountered the organic light, that they were able to realize their own godlike potential, that is the divine intelligence in us, in everywhere in nature, it’s in the snails, it’s in the clouds, but it’s in us in a particular way…”

Author Tricia McCannon (1,2,3) talks about how teenage Jesus traveled around the world, learning the mystery teachings from shamans, priests, the Druids, the Essenes, the Brahmins, the Magi and the Egyptians; traveling from England to Tibet. Other researchers have talked about the similarity of Jesus' transfiguration to other certain famous figures ( lamas, Buddha) having also attained similar enlightened, light-being states, certain DNA being activated, the third eye opening up, deification, apotheosis, or a god-like state, where the temporary physical body achieves a vibrational state to become a light being, which ties into quantum energy theory. It could be as literal as that -- just like when Yoda or Obi-Wan dies (“If you strike me down I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.”) and physically disappears to become light-beings, pure energy. Lucas describes it as “joining the Force at will” and “being able to retain your personality, your individuality once you’ve gone over to the other side.” Individual consciousness remains, yet merges with the one-consciousness. Or it could be as much as about achieving other powers according to one‘s unique divine potential, whatever that may mean. Again, I’m not the expert to rely on to explain it the best. Other researchers like William Henry talk about this and use ancient icons and art depicting Jesus as examples of the energy halos and/or stargates commonly depicted surrounding him. Mystic and freemason Manly P. Hall wrote about Jesus traveling the world, learning the mysteries, and other figures being similar to Jesus as well. It all does have aspects of freemasonry/illuminati all over it; as The Great Work seems to be about the secret of this alchemy, this transfiguration of oneself; a secret they'd like to keep for themselves to keep you subordinate, and attached to this material world, possibly. "The Great Work is, before all things, the creation of man by himself, that is to say, the full and entire conquest of his faculties and his future; it is especially the perfect emancipation of his will, assuring him... full power over the Universal Magical Agent," wrote occultist and influential mason Eliphas Levi. "...there exists in nature a means of which a single man, who knows how to adapt and direct it, might upset and alter the face of the world. This force was known to the ancients; it consists in a universal agent having equilibrium for its supreme law, while its direction is concerned immediately with the great arcanum of transcendental magic...This precisely that which the adepts of the middle ages denominated the first matter of the Great Work. The Gnostics represented it as the fiery body of the Holy Spirit; it was the object of adoration in the secret rites of the Sabbath and the Temple, under the hieroglyphic figure of Baphomet of the Androgyne of Mendes." So...I'm sure all this could be taken with a grain of salt, as masons/illuminati are master deceivers. Meaning, consider the history of the mystery schools existing in the ancient world, then being bullied almost out of existence by the Romans and Constantine, and then things like christianity co-opting of those pagan practices in a new propaganda -- likewise has the illuminati co-opted the mystery religions?

Author on the mysteries John Lash separates what the original mystery schools were, from what people claim the illuminati believe. "The claim of deification, that is, the turning of a human being into a god, or in the same sense, achieving a superhuman state...or the realization of some divine empowerment -- that is simply not the case, in the sense that initiation in the mysteries would have fostered in people a sense of being superhuman or godlike and therefore superior to all other people. Not at all. The experience of the initiation in the mysteries allowed those who underwent it to discover their own hidden powers, especially the hidden power of the divine intelligence...The elevation of human consciousness in the mysteries, the heightened awareness, was not an inflation of the ego to a god-like state. It was the discovery of one's divine intelligence. And that germ of divine intelligence exists in everyone." In other words, the illuminati elitist sociopathic spin on occultism/the mysteries to mean you can create supermen, like Hitler's idea, should be separated from the original benign occultists who see the mysteries as the discovery of one's own divine potential. Personally, I still don't know what that specifically means, but maybe that is precisely the point. Everyone needs to find their own answers and think for themselves.

On the strange cave scene in episode 5, Lucas says, “Part of going into the tree is learning about the Force, learning about the fact that the Force is within you, and at the same time you create your own bad vibes. So, if you think about badly things or if you act badly or you bring fear into a situation, you’re gonna have to defend yourself or you’re gonna have to suffer the consequences of that. In this particular case, he takes his sword in with him, which means he’s going to have combat. If he didn’t, he wouldn’t. He’s creating this situation in his mind because on a larger level what caused Darth Vader to become Darth Vader is the same thing that makes Luke bring that sword in with him. …He has the capacity to become Darth Vader simply by using hate and fear and using weapons and opposed to using compassion, caring, and kindness.”

Spiritual leaders today talk about raising your positive energy vibrations; by meditation, eating good, compassion, helping the world, do positive things as such, and thus, positive things will come to your life -- "living with intention." Negative thoughts and negative energies manifest negative situations and things for you. There’s positive and negative energy, a polarity, a light and dark side to this force.

Irvin Kershner says, “Luke is gonna have to face himself, his fears. And when he (Yoda) tells him, ‘you don’t need the guns, you don’t need all that stuff…uh-uh, he’s still a weak man, he still needs guns, and sabers. That shows that he’s still weak. Anybody that needs a gun is weak.”

On the scene where Luke is upside down, levitating rocks, Lucas says, “Ultimately it comes down to the power of positive thinking, or your belief system. If you believe in something, then it will work. If you don’t, it won’t. And part of getting something done in your life is to believe you can do it. A lot of these scenes are very old in nature and common wisdom, told in all kinds of stories. And one of them is believe in yourself, and believe in what you’re doing. People used to pass on this kind of information to the younger generation.”

Luke, “I don’t believe it.”
Yoda, “That is why you fail.”

Well, powers like ESP are proven to be important enough to have millions of dollars of tax payer money in government projects, like the Stargate Project, which used things like remote viewing in the cold war era. A key figure being Joseph McMoneagle. Through tests like Project Talent, the government sought out kids with special abilities and recruited them. Duncan O’Finioan talks about being recruited for especially being “half-Irish and half-Cherokee -- the two races (Celts and Indians) of people who have the highest number of children born with PSI or ESP abilities.” Perhaps there is something to the belief in the bloodlines. “The Force is strong in my family,” Luke says. The Jedi’s use blood tests to determine the midi-chlorian count in an individual. Well, the illuminati elitists believe blood is important That’s why royalty inter-marry. They’re a bunch of inbreds. Yet, however different races are biologically different, the issue of inferior or superior is a another can of worms.

The medal scene at the end of A New Hope does evoke the feeling of the end of the Nazi’s Triumph of the Will, with the symmetrical endless lines of troops and ceremony and Albert Speer-ish backdrop. Knowing what I know now, I lean toward interpreting that to mean a warning to us that the new republic could very well turn corrupt again -- it has happened before, not too long ago and far away -- if it isn‘t already. Learn from history’s mistakes, learn to see the signs corruption and signs of a dictatorship, learn how a good ideal republic behaves.

Deconstructing the Movies of George Lucas: part 2

Who would’ve thought that over 10 years out of school I would be writing essays and papers for fun.

“Luke, you’re going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view.” -Obi-Wan.
My point of view, my interests, in this deconstruction analysis lies mostly in the historical, political, and artistic aspects of the Star Wars films. I would go further and also add that many of our truths depend on how much info you have. The more info, the more knowledge. I’m not saying I know ALL, but I do a lot of research; I’m not pulling things out of my ass. And, here, in this part 2 little re-introduction, I write this for people who can think for themselves, have a curiosity for research, and true die-hard fans of Star Wars and other movies.

In Episode 4, Luke and Obi-Wan find the Jawa’s sand crawler in smoldering ruins. Luke assumes it was the Sand People, but Obi-Wan knows what’s up. The evidence shows it was storm troopers.

In episode 1, the Battle of Naboo starts with the invasion of the Trade Federation army, but we know what really went down. Naboo’s own senator Palpatine tells the Neimoidians what to do.

Zam Wesell, via Jango Fett and Dooku, attempted to assassinate Padme at the beginning of episode 2. Basically, the Sith again.

Palpatine created both the droid army as well as the clone army. He uses Dooku to rally the Trade Federation and other Separatists to continue to make the droid army, and uses JedI Master Sifo-Dyas (according to Wookieepedia) to make a clone army, with Tyrannus/Dooku overseeing that as well. And Palpatine creates other lies for the senate and public to get their votes. Compartmentalization. The lie is different at every level. The right hand doesn't know what the left is doing. Like 2 parties, 2 opposing sides are both controlled by the same shadowy body. The whole Clone Wars is a big contrivance to make Palpatine emperor. The classic Star Wars is the real war, when the rebellion finally wake up and see the light.

A False Flag operation is an operation that is blamed on another country's or entity's “flag.” A big frame up to deceive the public. And I would also call a provocation to attack a false flag because it’s the same entity starting it and manipulating things. So, why do that? Look at who stands to gain what. They do this mostly to seem like victims of an enemy attack, thus justifying war, but really to gain either natural resources, territory, to overthrow regimes to put in an obedient puppet leader, war profiteer, etc.

As a general tactic, it goes by several names. The same entity creating the problem is the same entity providing the solution (AKA problem-reaction-solution, AKA the Hegelian Dialectic, AKA Thesis, Antithesis and Synthesis). Polarizing sides of an issue are created to have a predetermined outcome.

There are many real-world examples on most so-called "terrorism" that then leads to an intended outcome. Nazi leader Hermann Goering at the Nuremberg trials said, “Of course the people don’t want war. But after all, it’s the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it’s always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it’s a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger.” So, Operation Himmler and the Gleiwitz incident, where Nazis framed Poles, gave Nazi Germany justification to invade Poland, which started WW2. And then the Reichstag Fire was started (some question) by the Nazis but blamed on the Commies, but it cannot be questioned that it begat the Reichstag Fire Decree (which resembles The USAPATRIOT act) and Enabling Act, giving emergency powahs (Jar-Jar voice) to Hitler. [However, the bigger picture for WW2 is that it begat the UN, IMF, and World Bank.] Hitler said, “Make the lie big, make it simple, keep saying it, and eventually they will believe it.” The Big Lie is a propaganda tactic. Joeseph Goebbels said. “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

There are many false flags throughout history. Lucas often sites the Vietnam War as an influence, so the Gulf of Tonkin manipulation was definitely in his mind. Many CIA plots blamed and created a communist terror. The proposed Operation Northwoods. Bay of Pigs. Operation Ajax. This is the phantom menace -- a phantom terrorist. Whatever is played over and over in mainstream corporate media is always suspicious. The US created Bin Laden and Saddam Hussein. The obvious inside job of 9/11 (or should be obvious to anyone who has studied implosions and building structure -- for any doubt on Al-CIA-da there’s plenty of material out there, like the BBC’s The Power of Nightmares, and Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth’s 9/11: Blueprint for Truth) led to a lie of WMD’s, in a country, Iraq, irrelevant of Bin Laden (who is publicly blamed but not even attributed to 9/11 on the FBI's own wanted list), the vague name-changing unending War on Terror, leading to soft-fascism for Americans, reducing civil liberties.

So-called “domestic terrorism” in the real world are mostly false flags. Ruby Ridge and Waco are interesting weird and sad incidents involving the military and media whitewash. Oklahoma City’s bombing had a bomb squad removing unexploded bombs within the building when the blame was on McVeigh's van on the sidewalk. In a 1999 civil trial the government and police are officially blamed for murdering MLKjr. JFK reeks of CIA. The recent Xmas/underwear bomber was escorted onto the plane without a passport by a “well-dressed” CIA handler. The recent Portland’s bomber had FBI involvement. Countless other “domestic terrorists” were created and entrapped with government aid and then fueled by corporate propaganda media news(1,2,3). Keep repeating the lies, and the public will believe the lies. The public is lazy enough to not research and think for themselves. What comes out of this? Because they think people actually bought the so-called domestic terrorism, the US feels it’s justified to a soft-fascistic crackdown on US citizen’s rights: with Michael Chertoff’s conflict of interest body scanners for the TSA, and their VIPR teams, TSA invading Wal-marts, hotels, malls, and superbowls now, anti-gun laws, Obama’s internet kill switch, Obama's citizen kill list, FDA control on farms (like Bigg's warning to Luke about their farm in Empire control in an Episode 4 deleted scene), data-mining (an aspect of the big brother world in another Lucas film, THX1138), targeting dissenters, limiting free speech. (see Naomi Wolf’s 10 steps to fascism work)

And the thing about anti-gun laws and gun confiscation, as they did in New Orleans, is that they want to disarm the public so they can’t have an American Revolution part 2. Maybe this is why all the Rebel Alliance’s equipment and vehicles look jerry-rigged from spare parts or captured vehicles. The Poles militia fought the Nazis with captured Nazi weapons.

By episode 4, the Emperor puts regional governors in power.
Governor Tarkin:”The imperial senate will no longer be of any concern to us. I have just received word that the emperor has dissolved the council permanently. The last remnants of the old Republic have been swept away.”
General Tagge:“That’s impossible. How will the emperor maintain control without the bureaucracy?”
Governor Tarkin:”The regional governors now have direct control over their territories. Fear will keep the local systems in line -- fear of this battle station.” Appointed, as in unelected, governors ensure direct orders from the dictator are carried out, bypassing state‘s rights. The Romans and Nazis had regional governors. In a state of emergency in the US, there is FEMA and the continuity of government. FEMA has already divided the country in regions on a map on FEMA’s own website; the federal districts were created by Nixon. Look up Obama’s Council of Governors executive order. Kiss state’s rights goodbye.

A police state looks like Mos Eisley, with intimidating stormtroopers walking around, asking,”Let me see your identification,” like Nazis asking for “your papers, please.” Being suspected automatically creates the feeling of guilt, or subordination by fear. The founding fathers of the US felt you have a right to privacy to feel safe. Illegal search and seizure, invading your privacy, basically being guilty until proven innocent is already permitted in the USAPATRIOT act and other legislation. I just heard they're currently trying to quietly make the PATRIOT act permanent. Obama wants an internet ID. They were writing a Homegrown Terrorism act and calls for indefinite detention. The MIAC report targets civilians for just having certain alternative views and beliefs, like a thought police. Dissenters are targeted; seen as treasonous enemies to state. Despite freedom of speech, if you question the government, they arrest you. And Americans have been arrested for that. Sounds like communism, fascism; all that. However, it will fall apart the more people acknowledge the phantom menace/terror.

A fascist state deals in absolutes; one cannot question authority. Their way or the highway. Bad Anakin goes, “If you’re not with me, then you’re my enemy.” Obi-wan replies, “Only a Sith deals in absolutes.” After 9/11, Bush said to the rest of the world, “If you are not with us, you are with the terrorists.” Wow. No one one in the world can be neutral? On climategate, Gore and Obama kept saying, “The science is settled.” Really? You can’t have a discussion with the 30,000 scientists suing Gore and address all the errors in Gore’s movie? Remember the Black shirts and Brown shirts.

Just like in classic freemasonic double-speak, in episode 3, the Emperor appears benevolent, saying things like, “In order to ensure our security and continuing stability, the Republic will be reorganized into the first Empire, for a safe and secure society…” Hitler said the same glowing protective and patriotic stuff -- doesn’t mean anything… for its citizens. US safety and (Homeland, a word Hitler would loved, along with Fatherland) security as wartime solutions are given as reasons, but legislation and actions say otherwise. The root of the problem is who really is behind the phantom terror that we need to be safe and secure from.

“Fear” is huge in the Star Wars movies. “Fear will keep the local systems in line,” Tarkin said. “I sense much fear in you.” Yoda says to Anakin. Everyone talks about it all the friggin time, because it’s true that tyrannical governments throughout history feel the need to do this to keep people in line. However, the whole trick is to let go of fear, gain knowledge to be aware and not fear, and do all the things Obi-Wan and Yoda says. More on that later.

However much evidence there is of possible martial law (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18), the reality is IMO there is not enough of a military force to keep everyone under control -- there’s too many people, for now. So until they depopulate the place to a manageable size, they need to coerce citizens to do their work for them. Bring in the rats. Rat out your friends and family.

Lando Calrissian turns his friends in to Darth Vader. Homeland Security is trying to get citizens to turn on each other by partnering with Walmart, malls and hotels with their PSA announcements, and “See Something, Say Something“ and “Stop. Think. Connect.” propaganda campaigns. They say paying in cash is suspicious. Taking photos is suspicious. How in the world the Nazis got its own German citizens to work for them is NOT surprising, really. I think Lando was bribed, and naive, but it's still about civilians turning in civilians. (1,2,3,)

In the Empire Strikes Back commentary, Lucas says, “…with Lando….by making a pact with the devil, he’s not gonna win. It’s gonna get worse and worse and worse for him. The more he appeases Darth Vader, the more he joins, and the more things he does, the worse his situation keeps getting…he’s on a route he can’t get out of.”
