Prometheus – (Movie Interpretation)
(NOTE: It’s advisable to go to the above website and read the texts and pictures together for it’s too long to post here. I did post a bit of the connection to the history/myths of earth as to wet one’s appetite.)
In the recent movie Prometheus we find many connections to literature and common themes that talk of ‘creator gods’ descending to Earth in the ancient world. There are also many other connections to symbolism that far extend beyond a typical ‘prequel’ and carries much validity to some of the themes relating to ‘reality’, not just ‘science fiction.’
Prometheus and the Race of Titans
Myths from all over the world talk of the ‘gods’, giants and titans both fighting and ruling over humanity, its actually quite common once you delve a little deeper into the subject. All over the world many ancient civilizations believed they were in communication with gods that came from the skies. The ‘Fall of mankind’ elaborated on through ancient records, art and myths, are also connected to these legends of ‘sky people’ coming down to Earth.
The legend of Prometheus is one that tells of this Titan deciding that he would disobey the gods and make humans ‘gods’ themselves. Sounds like the Fallen one that religious folk talk about to me? According to Greek mythology Prometheus belonged to the old order of Gods (the Titans) and from the bloodline of ‘Iapetus (also a moon of Saturn) and Uranus, his legend tells of stealing fire from Zeus and giving it to humanity. The Fire Prometheus stole was said to be the very essence of life and this ‘light’, that is ‘life itself’ can be found in the Books of Genesis, Enoch, Ezekiel’s visions, Sumerian tablets and Greek myths alike. In Greek mythology, Prometheus is a ‘creator god’ and just like the Elohim in Genesis that were said to create Adam, his actions were considered both ‘rebellious’ and symbolic of the spirit of the fallen one! Lucifer is also noted as the ‘Bringer of Light.’
The statue of Prometheus that stands outside the General Electric Building and overlooking the ice ring at the Rockefeller Center in New York, (crafted by the heavily connected Paul Howard Manship), epitomizes the ‘elite’ as ‘gods’ on Earth today! The Rockefellers, like the Rothschilds are families that ‘see themselves’ as ‘bloodline royalty’ connected the ‘true gods’ (the Biblical creators of humanity) as the movie Prometheus suggests. The General Electric building (below) also celebrates the Saturn ‘father of the Titans figure’ named Urizen by William Blake’s in his image of the same design called The Ancient of Days (below middle). This figure is also meant to be the Elohim, Yahweh or the Demiurge, the (plural not singular) gods that generally mean “producer” and eventually “creator”. Atlas another Titan and the brother of Prometheus (below right) also gets a look in. The elite know all about our (and their) ‘beginnings.’
Gods Amongst the Ancients
The Maya of Central America say that an ‘advanced knowledge’ was handed down to them by the creatures of the plumed serpent, their saviour god Quetzalcoatl. This God (creature) was also called Balam-Quitze or the Jaguar who smiles. In Egypt the same was said of the their god Osiris (who I’ll come back to later) who could see great distances without having to move. According to the Popol Vuh, the sacred book of the ancient Quiché and Maya of Mexico, the gods and or first humans:
“Were endowed with intelligence; they saw and instantly they could see far; they succeeded in seeing; they succeeded in knowing all that there is in the world…..Great was their wisdom; their sight reached to the forests, the rocks, the lakes, the seas, the mountains and the valleys.”
In Sumeria, Egypt and Central America the gods became known as ‘civilisers’ of the world and were worshipped for their ‘superhuman’ abilities. These gods were also said to have lived openly amongst the ancients before the Age of Cancer 10,800 to 3113 BC. After a ‘global’ catastrophic deluge, recorded in numerous civilizations, these gods then went underground into the catacombs that were said to stretch great distances across the Earth.
Through much art and oral tradition these gods are depicted as a serpent race, or the Itzamma (lizard) gods, that are said to preside over the ‘underworld’, the place of shelter during great catastrophic changes on the surface of the Earth. In Mayan art and sculpture the same gods are often shown as large serpents rearing up to spew forth their descendants, they became the kings that would rule the Earth surface population. The Sumerian clay tablets also show detailed descriptions of how what they call the Anunnaki gods interbreeding with human women to create a hybrid race, a fusion of human genes. Their offspring were known as the Nefilim, Rephiam, Emim and Anakim, a giant race, recorded in cave art all over the world…..etc.
