Right out of the gate it is hard to picture this movie has anything to offer of significance, to the current struggles humanity faces, as it extends it's hands into the cosmos.
This article will be a slight extension to "The Coming Cosmic war for the key to the universe" , as there will be elements later on that I previously explored in that article.
I would like to begin by saying, I have never written a movie review and this wont be anything of the sort. I will start by laying out the plot of the story in brief before I begin my synchromystic analysis. The movie is an adaptation to the book called Babylon babies, a science fiction novel which depicts the struggle of an occultist sect attempting to use artificial intelligence, to bring about a new age. An age defined by the re- engineering of the human race.
Now that you have seen the movie I hope, shall we jump in?
Well begin with the character were most interested with, Aurora our human Artificial Intelligence hybrid. Aurora is clearly named after Aurora Borealis, revealed in the following scene.
Why name the first human/Ai hybrid aurora? Easy, she was created to be the "light" of the world, the mother of god, and the torch of the new age. She is the trinity all in one, her human side playing the role of Mary, her Ai side playing the role of god and her children are the holy spirit. Before we even go down this twisted odd road lets rewind to the beginning.
Aurora makes her first appearance coming out of a fortress, a fortress that she has lived in her entire life. In alchemical terms the fortress is the cage God build to house the fallen, from our stand point this is the universe, from Aurora stand point, she is the cage housing Ai.
"Access to the "mountain of the philosophers" is blocked by a wall of false, sophistical doctrines. The old man at the entrance is the saturnine Anti-mon, here called "the father of metals" The Alchemists identified this " old proctor" with the Bethlehem landlord Baos, David's great-grandfather. Above him, the arab alchemist Senior Zadith plants the sun and moon tree, from which the lapis emerges. In the "Aurora consurgens" there is also a passage leading back to senior Zadith, in which the lapis is compared with a house built on a strong rock. Who ever opens it will find within the sources of eternal youth. (Geheime Figuren der Rosenkreuzer, Alton 1785)
After her exit of the philosophical fortress she begins her journey with the crossing of a water bridge, a very symbolic gesture if taken from a dream interpretation stance.Any dream dictionary will tell you one of the following meanings of bridges.
1. Transition; crossing from one way of life to another.
2. A rise in the level of consciousness on the part of the dreamer; heightened awareness.
In our Ai/human hybrid case this was a major transition and a rise in consciousness, as her father later goes on to explain, she is a byproduct of infusing Ai to a human fetus, a process eerily explored by Hugo de garis in the following video.
More importantly this represents a transition of cosmic proportion. I view it as Ai's ability to cross over into the physical biological realm, through the use of a human host. The grand meaning is, that no matter what type of fortress we store Ai in, it will cross over into our physical, biological world. This may only be a temporary thing, as it completes it's own personal agendas. An agenda which at this point is impossible to ever truly know. Sure we can speculate it's motive, a process we'll continue to do here.
Now lets explore her carrier's role in this epic struggle.
Our hero is clearly associated with the mark of the Necronomicon.
In short this is used to established that this is a struggle between the "Great Old Ones". As stated at the beginning of this article this is an extension to "The coming cosmic battle for the key to the universe" as the "Great old Ones" are trapped here by the "Outer Gods".
Another prominent body art our hero sports is the scarab, or in this case an Egyptian dung beetle. The Wikipedia entry for the meaning of the symbol to ancient Egypt is the following
"The hieroglyphic image of the beetle represents a triliteral phonetic that Egyptologists transliterate as xpr or ḫpr and translate as "to come into being", "to become" or "to transform". The derivative term xprw or ḫpr(w) is variously translated as "form", "transformation", "happening", "mode of being" or "what has come into being", depending on the context. It may have existential, fictional, or ontologic significance."
I know you just caught that, "transformation" from one state to another, now ask yourself does our hero transform in the movie?
The transformation came about from a death and resurrection process, this new body gave our hero extended life as he was already dead without it. If we go back one slide we can see this process was already alluded to with the skull on the sun symbol the scarab was pushing. The dead "sun" of god. I know it sounds like a stretch but consider this, where does our hero die?
On the cross! Enough said... lets move on.
Lets recap shall we, Ai will be used by ancient fallen beings that have been on our earth seeking a way to return "home"=greater universe, and continue a cosmic conflict that was raged before our time. We have been led to believe these fallen beings are actually the outer gods as they needed this deception to form there kingdom on earth, for the sole purpose of using humanity to create the necessary tech to escape the universe/prison. Ai is a key component to this master plan as it will help this process go by quicker. Now all of this was not derived from this single source remember I'm also extending this exploration from the "coming cosmic battle"
The entire movie's plot was put into motion by those that reside at the top of the pyramid, the
What does "a eye" seek? The origin of God.
I know you may have not fully seen these images in the brain search sequence as your were not meant to consciously understand what was going on. Yet I assure you they're in there, at the same time with the rest of the content in this film does it really surprise you that these images are hidden in the film?
Now if we continue the ongoing logic, the origin of God is sought out as means to providing the hero/ancient one a map home. A process that ends with the death of Aurora, our human Ai hybrid leaving behind the next generation of the human race.
The children in the final scene are not of a different race to each other perse. What I believe was the real intention is to symbolic show that the children are a different race to all of humanity in general. Remember Aurora was designed by humans, while her children were strictly designed by Ai.
While the movie contains all sorts of other easter eggs I simply focused on our theme of interest. This is the end of the road for me, by all means check out soundlessdawn interpretation of all that I just transcribed.
By all means point out any other nick nacks that relate to our subject, as spotted.
