Do Sci Fi Movies Actually Help Create A Grand Future?

Yes, I believe they do!  What appears as low brow, non thinking, summer, mindless popcorn fun is actually setting us up for something very spectacular!

The fight between good & evil, or rather the transformation from undesired, unwanted outcomes, problems, struggles etc., is seen in things like fantasy movies and comic books, as seemingly lightweight & superficial entertainment.

It’s Life’s sneaky tricky unconscious way to show us & prepare us that we will overcome, survive & thrive our greatest challenges, dysfunctions, global problems of pollution, starvation, disease etc.

For example let’s take the movie “2012″. It is a 2009 American science fiction disaster film, directed and co-written by Roland Emmerich.

Rotten Tomates describes it this way:
“Disaster movie maven Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow) crafts this apocalyptic sci-fi thriller following the prophecy stated by the ancient Mayan calendar, which says that the world will come to an end on December 21, 2012.”

“When a global cataclysm thrusts the world into chaos, divorced writer and father Jackson Curtis (John Cusack) joins the race to ensure that humankind is not completely wiped out. Chiwetel Ejiofor, Danny Glover, Amanda Peet, Thandie Newton, and Oliver Platt round out the cast of this end-of-the-world thriller co-scripted by the director and his 10,000 B.C. writer/composer, Harald Kloser. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi”

What looks like a disaster, fear mongering film, playing on the predictions that 2012 would end in world destruction, was really a metaphor for the destruction of an old way of living, verses our own ability to create the future.

So take this as poetic metaphor, that underneath all the hype is our ability to overcome the worse that we fear.

That’s the message of many, certainly not all, but many, of such films. They set up, in the public collective, the conscious, or even unconscious, message that the positive intention can and will overcome disaster, utilizing the guise of a seemingly dumb summer movie.

The intention is to help create unconsciously through entertainment the idea that we will find solutions, overcome & triumph over our world problems.

How we overcome these, the fall out or fall in of our actions, depends on us, of course.  That’s an important point!

Nevertheless, the fascinating thing behind these films, perhaps even beyond the film makers themselves, is a hidden aspect of life that knows we need encouragement and inspiration. A part that knows we can overcome our current overwhelming individual & global problems.

We get this encouragement & guidance in what appears to be superficial mindless movie entertainment.  It goes into the unconscious because we don’t take them seriously.  Here they fester in positive possibility & we don’t even know it!

Old school thinking, institutions, networks are dying or being destroyed just like in a disaster film, and we’re in our own  Godzilla fight to stay alive.

That’s the struggle. That’s the controversy we currently see in many local, world events & politics. Old systems are being destroyed being replaced by newer, better systems. In this sense, many of these Sci Fi movies are intention metaphors of our eventual triumph.

Current summer examples:
Iron Man, Superman, Pacific Rim, etc. are to me are representative, and foretell our victory, using the guise as entertainment.  Of course, there are many more past present & future!

These movies are so wayyyyy over the top that they, again to me, represent the over the topness of our problems of Big Brother Government, our wars, individual & collective dysfunctions, and massive world problems.

These movies can be seen as unconscious metaphors, hiding as proletariat distractions which have truth in them regardless of the manufactured consent of the elite.

The main message I see underneath these movies is our overcoming our problems no matter how overwhelming & challenging.  How we eventually overcome our global issues & problems may play out very differently than these movies, but their inspirational message that we will overcome is very strong & welcomed.

Truth hides in many forms if we look for it. The same for solutions or Soul-utions.  You may never see a Sci Fi or disaster movie in the same light again!

    Hi Marko,

    I’m a bit limited in my response as I haven’t seen the summer Sci Fi releases so can only discuss on the basis of my knowledge generally. I love a lot of Sci Fi and the way that it can take an aspect of life which is existing now and really make us look at it in the guise of film. Sci Fi TV series are similar and the Star Trek TNG series was famous for doing this and it was one of my main fascinations with it. Similarly with Babylon 5, which if you’ve never seen it you’ll love as it has a really epic and quite mystical story.

    On the whole, I would agree that they do tend to show man’s indomitable spirit and ability to recreate his society and environment under the most difficult conditions and from that point of view can be quite inspiring!

    Namaste

    Liz

      Thanks Liz. By the way, Star Trek TNG (The Next Generation) & Babylon 5 were 2 of my favorite Sci Fi tv shows. I watched them religiously & loved them.

      Star Trek TNG came from a very advanced perspective. We had done away with war, most major diseases. They had replicators to create what ever they desired etc.

      So they showed that when you had peace & prosperity they still had a lot to explore, discover. Excitement & wonder only increased. Both TNG & B5 were truly wonderful inspirational wayshowers of endless possibility. :joy

    Even the Wolverine comes to better terms with himself.

    The problem I have is that most of these films do not address what we really need to do, which is to grow up emotionally. That is move away from the dictates of our ego-mind and more to living from the heart energy which can directly connect to the soul and its greater wisdom.

      Great observation Ross, that my be the next maturing, evolving concept to be more included in future movies in the Sci Fi & other genre films.

      Smiles,

    I love your take on this, Marko. These popular movies are simply somebody’s thoughts and ideas visualized, a way to actually take someone’s message and place it before the world in an entertaining yet thought-provoking way. I view everything as spiritual…every whisper, every sound, every vision, every sensation. And movies are the amplification of that. For me at least.

    Thank you again for a spot-on observation, Marko. Way to keep the world on its toes!
