Or just lift the lid to take a peek?
They say what goes around, comes around again. It’s been a number of years since this film was released to the world. And now Disney World has a world of Pandora for us to visit.
When I first saw it, I was literally struck with the symbolism of the story. Here was an invading force of enterprising individuals seeking the retrieval of abundant resources to be returned to their home, under the protection of the military to keep the natives at bay. Where have we heard that story before?
Oh, right: Europeans seeking beaver pelts from the First Nations in North America. Look how that turned out.
Dances With Wolves, again?
One of the crew, using an Avatar to help navigate the planetary energies, decides to go “native”. He joins up with the Na’vi and fights the takeover of their land. This time, the hero is flying with dragons, not dancing with wolves.
By 2154, humans have depleted Earth‘s natural resources, leading to a severe energy crisis. The Resources Development Administration (RDA for short) mines for a valuable mineral — unobtanium — on Pandora, a densely forested habitable moon orbiting the gas giant Polyphemus in the Alpha Centauri star system. Pandora, whose atmosphere is poisonous to humans, is inhabited by the Na’vi, a species of 10-foot tall (3.0 m), blue-skinned, sapient humanoids that live in harmony with nature and worship a mother goddess named Eywa.
(Just so as we’re on the same page, “Eywa” is pig-Latin for “Way”)
Alpha Centauri, eh? The Centaur was a mythical creature, the most famous being Chiron, the “Wounded Healer”. His image is that of a man and a horse fused into one body.
The fusion of the Avatar with his flying beast is a direct echo of this creature. (Nothing new under the sun…)
The ‘peek’ I was suggesting in the first subtitle is that the military have been exploring other planets and building space colonies in order to prepare for a time when Earth can no longer support its inhabitants.
People like David Icke and David Wilcock (two Davids vs. a Goliath?) have been trying to warn us that this preparation has been going on under our very noses for at least 40 years. Check out this link for details. You don’t have to buy into this concept: it will happen whether or not you believe in it.
We are living on a planet which we are slowly killing. The ‘powers that be’ decided that they cannot solve the man-made problems, so they are looking for an escape route. Contrary to what the article stated, the ordinary folk will be left behind. Only the “Elite” (read: “Elect”) will be saved. This is a perversion of the “Rapture” concept.
Since human life is not the only way we can express our Spiritual Being, may I suggest that we will withdraw from the “Avatar” of our Earthly body, and go elsewhere?
