pretty heavy stuff indeed

I watched all the analysis and symbolism clips but still believe they have missed a crucial point with their interpretation.

We are doomed!

And the crucial point .....

IZ?

Sounds like you may have something there. Care to elaborate?

The slope is getting very much steeper.

It should be just as much about what has happened as what is about to happen. No crystal ball here, just saying. With the rising occurrences of events depicted, the misinformed, low informed and the could care less will support the MSM all the time (that is all thy know). There were flickers of symbolic scenes where one could interpret this, though not overtly obvious (at least to me).

I really don't mean to argue. I just wish they would do one that was more future oriented.

BTW- I love these guys, whoever they are.

Absolutely stunning

and mesmerizing. Will have to watch a few more times to figure out some of the symbolism.

Here's some explanation from their website: http://www.heliofant.com/egyptianSymbolism.html

Directors interview with Alex Jones about the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YsPlPohPa1c

"It’s not pessimistic, brother, because this is the blues. We are blues people. The blues aren’t pessimistic. We’re prisoners of hope but we tell the truth and the truth is dark. That’s different." ~CW

Obviously, this is about Bitcoin! :)

This is a video like the matrix... it has nothing to do with what anyone thinks at first viewing!

Just like the Matrix movies are about our financial system, this video is obviously about Bitcoin!!! :)

Just plain 'Happy'about the direction the world is taking! Especially if we live to reach LEV [Longevity Escape Velocity]

Actually...

I've just found clues as to what it's about on their web page

Take a look, you may be interested:

THIS is some POWERFUL

MOJO.

Needs more input/evaluation by DPers. Anyone know much about this 'Heliofant' crowd, i.e. Who they are? What they stand for?

Intense...

very cool....

Anyone up for a moneybomb?

Since the RP campaign doesn't want/need our contributions anymore, maybe we should do moneybombs for other initiatives such as Heliofant, or even a moneybomb for a charity that helps children in 3rd world countries?

what a bunch of nonsense

why don't you look up the interview that Alex Jones did with the creator of this video

Why don't you provide a link?

..instead of having everyone who reads your comment look it up as well.

Here is what I've found: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8VlfIfRi0I

Wow, thanks for sharing this

"We can see with our eyes, hear with our ears and feel with our touch, but we understand with our hearts."

Each time I watch this

I notice something new. On my latest watching, I realized that the "EVOL_T__N" on the blackboard can be interpreted as saying that you will only complete your evolution when you realize that U are IO. IO corresponds to the union of Isis and Osiris, the female and male parts of godhood. In other words, to evolve, find the god inside you.

Or as William Blake said:
"Thus men forgot that All deities reside in the human breast."

All that technical facility, but empty of any

positive resolution.

Well, not sure I got that, but

I agree that the Christos is an amalgum of many of the Christ-figures throughout history from Osiris to Dyonisus to Jeshua. I'm pretty sure the Indian reference in there was Krishna, the first recorded Christos.

I think this was a take on Gnosticism - or "knowledge" of being Christ-like. The Gnostics were known to collect symbols and writings from multiple cultures and combine them into their philosophy. The modern/Western version of the Gnostics are the Freemasons - if you look at their temples you will see symbols from ancient Egypt representing knowledge to Mythras, who was the
sun-god-man in Persia.

So, I guess my initial thesis after seeing it once, would be the artists are telling us that change has to come from the people refusing to accept religions and presidents and to understand the media is poison. I could get deeper, but that is my intial thought.

"In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot."--Mark Twain

Interesting..

I wonder what Christ symbolizes at the end with the churches crumbling to dust like the towers of power. Strange markings on his forehead as well.

"The story of your enslavement"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xbp6umQT58A

"We dance around the endless violence of our dying system, because we fear the attacks of our fellow livestock."

"But we can only be kept in the cages we refuse to see."

"Wake up."
"To see the farm is to leave it."

what if that's not Christ

but the anti-christ?

a new and false messiah.

....not on my watch....

.

My interpretation

The christ figure symbolizes Christ consciousness, Osiris, Tiphereth in Qabalah, the higher self. The symbol on the figure's forehead is the Tibetan symbol that represents the path to enlightenment, realization, or understanding. It has many paths to the top of the mountain, but once you get high enough, all the paths become one. Notice that the crown of thorns is right across the point where all the paths become one. When higher self wakes up, the crown, which represents oppression, disappears and the symbols of organized religion crumble. Even the pyramids, the oldest symbols of religion and enslavement, are destroyed by the light.

Also notice that the Christ figure wakes itself up by breathing fire into itself. Change must come from within.

There is so much more in this video, a lot of thought went into this.

if only the creators explained their interpretation somewhere

like their website. (heavy bandwidth at the moment)

...or their replies in the comment section on vimeo, hey!

But yes, see what you will.

"You underestimate the character of man." | "So be off now, and set about it." | Up for a game?

Jefferson's picture

Sorry

I didn't look more closely.

Will check it out later. Looks like they're still overloaded with traffic.

Joη's picture

they don't explain much, anyway

and their vimeo comments suggest it's meant to be interpretive, so "there's no wrong answer". So....*shrugs*

...on the 3D artwork...

The background images: mesh primitives, good seamless textures blending well with shadowing, and great concept of snow covered dunes.
