The marketing masters have always used the same formula: get'm while they're young and you'll have a customer for life. The same has been applied to mass hypnosis through the animated film industries. Bright flashing colors mixed with fanciful tales led by cutesy anthropomorphic characters. Behind this distraction may be hidden the subconscious currents of thought-manipulation.
Control the subconscious and you control the behaviors of an entire society. Subconscious is the steering wheel of all action, so parents must be ever vigilant in protecting the driver's seat. Parents must recognize the red light ahead and pump the brakes. Turn their eyes away from the screen and engage before they switch to autopilot, for that is a program designed to guide them into oncoming traffic. That is a generation asleep at the wheel.
Written by Carlo Collodi, published in 1883, was the book 'The Adventures of Pinocchio', although it should have been entitled 'The Horrors of Pinocchio', for this book was packed with nightmarish sufferings. One such suffering was Pinocchio being hanged from a tree, which is symbolic of Odin's hanging from Yggdrasil. Another hard-to-stomach scene in this book was Pinocchio's murder of Jiminy Cricket. One may ask why any child would be permitted to read such a disturbing fable.
Carlo Collodi is an interesting name to anyone who so much as dabbles in Gematria. The initials C.C. equals 33. The next repeating letters are three L's. In Hebrew, L equals 30, so 30x3=90. Ninety is the degree of a right angle, which is highly important to any mason. All the different numbers listed in the Old Testament's Book of Numbers is a total of ninety. The Virgin Mary stayed a total of 90 days for the birth of John the Baptist.
The next set of repeating letters in the name Carlo Collodi is of the O. This in Reductive Gematria equals 6, so this gives us the three sixes of the beast. When we remove the repeating letters of the C's, L's, and O's, we are left with the letters ardi, which is idra inverted. Idra in Aramaic means "fig tree". The fig, esoterically, represents fertility and is associated with such earth mothers as Hathor and Isis. If this isn't enough to find code in a name, let us take the whole name Carlo Collodi and see that it equals 119 in Ordinal Gematria--911 inverted.
In 'The Adventures of Pinocchio', Geppetto immediately finds himself being physically abused by the puppet after having carved it from a piece of enchanted wood. Pinocchio runs away as soon as its feet are made and Geppetto is arrested for capturing Pinocchio. This is just before Pinocchio returns to the abandoned home to kill Jiminy Cricket. So we can see where the Disney version in 1940 changed the tone a little bit to make for a more welcoming opening to the film.
The name Pinocchio is taken from the root words "pino" and "occhio" meaning pine and eye, which, we know esoterically to be representative of the pineal gland. The name Geppetto is derived from Giuseppe, which is Italian for Joseph. Joseph, of course, was the earthly Father of Jesus. Geppetto's cat is named Figaro, a name with an origin that, again, brings us the fig tree; the feline of Egyptian nobility; the fig-bearer, Isis. The goldfish is named Cleo, quite likely taken from Ancient Greek Cleio, which was a sea-nymph known as a Nereid, or one of 50 daughters to the Old Man of the Sea.
Enters Jiminy Cricket. This is a corruption of the Southern exclamation of Jiminy Cripes, which is a corruption of Jesus Christ. Jiminy begins in rags as if homeless and in becoming Pinocchio's conscience, we see his attire change to that of something much more dapper, for he has taken residence and wealth of purpose in the guidance of the wooden boy. This wooden boy who will be taking a journey of esoteric evolution from vegetative state to animal state and finally to the human state from the metaphysical vision of the Father to corporeal Boy.
Yet how did Pinocchio go from a chunk of carved wood to an animated puppet? From a wish upon a star, perhaps a spell in the pentagram, as the Occultists might see it. This brings forward the Blue Fairy. We have the Father, the son, is she representative of the Holy Ghost? Perhaps, perhaps not, yet there is an underlying mystical theme going on here. She is of blue light and this draws to mind the question of blue in so many secret programs: Project Bluebeam, Blue Book, Blue Bird, Blue Fly etc. The blue of aether. The blue of the cosmic ocean tides that sweep in and out of our lives unnoticed.
Pinocchio, his first adventure out into the real world, he is interrupted from his course to school. Honest John, as he is called in the fashion of inverted truth, for he truly is a liar. John's last name is Foulfellow, which exposes the true nature of this character. Honest John is a fox. Of course he is, seeing as the word "fox" is the only English word that can be spelled from the Gematria of the three 6's of the beast. Jiminy Cricket warns Pinocchio that this fox is the embodiment of temptation and not to go with him. Still, Pinocchio naively is led astray from the path of education and enlightenment, enticed by the allure of celebrity.
So Honest John, the deceiver, the misleader, the tempter, to the tune of "Hi-Diddle-Dee-Dee, an actor's life for me" draws Pinocchio to the Puppet Master, Stromboli. In the book, he was named Mangiafuoco, which is Italian for "fire-eater". Stromboli, as a name, seems much more innocent and to have no connection, yet the etymology of "stromboli" tells us that it is derived from a famous ancient Greek volcano--both names representing the fires of hell; the descent into the underworld.
Upon stage, Pinocchio boasts the song how there are no strings on him while becoming entangled by strings. This is the puppetry we all fall prey to in our compromises to our desires. We become conditioned and programmed by the performance and the script. We are as actors in the limelight; marionettes unto the master's fingers. Pinocchio is encaged and Jiminy Cricket cannot save him, for conscience can only regret the mistake. It cannot take it back. This requires the miracle work of the Blue Fairy.
Still lessons go unlearned. Pleasure Island--such a disconcerting name for a place where boys are to be tricked into enslavement by exercising their primal, carnal desires. A large sign boasts, "Model Home Open For Destruction". This is where the boys can destroy to their heart's content. Pinocchio excites, "Being bad's a lot'a fun, ain't it?" Asses they become.
Geppetto, in the meantime, much like Jonah, is swallowed by a whale. Pinocchio must save him, as this is Pinocchio's descent into matter and so must offer up himself to obtain the next degree. Geppetto's boat symbolically represents Noah's Ark and, as we must realize, an Ark, by Hebraic definition, is not actually a boat. It is a wooden box for containing sacred objects, hence, the Ark of the Covenant. The sacred objects contained in Noah's Ark were the potential seeds of all of earth's life. The Ark was the metaphysical earth in potential form. The Ark of Pinocchio is the container of human life, consciousness, and pursuit of morality.
While inside the belly of Monstra, Geppetto becomes a fisherman and when Pinocchio shows up upon the boat, Geppetto even accidentally kisses a fish instead of his wooden son, furthering the connective symbol of Pisces. Jiminy Cricket cannot enter the whale, for the whale is representative of matter encapsulating spirit--conscience is left for the physical plane that is yet to progress in this evolutionary stage. Just as Christ must first escape the tomb to achieve completion of the metaphysical planes, so too must they be cast out from the whale. In this telling, it is, of course, a sperm whale and they are to be sneezed out, suggestive of birth--the volcanic-like eruption, the sprouting of leaf from seed, life from germ, out of the cosmogonic seas and into the physical plane of materiality--from involution to evolution, from Genesis to Exodus.
Pinocchio sacrifices self to save his Father and so earns the condition of human form.
Brave Little Toaster
The opening scene is very telling as far as underlying symbolism, seeing as the lamp--the light-director--is distracted and annoyed by the incessant noise of the radio. The radio, after all, was heavily pushed by the Nazis into every German home for its capabilities of spreading propaganda and molding thought. This cartoon radio is a nuisance and an insufferable blatherskite, constantly annoying the other appliances.
These appliances offer up a heavy undertone of religious analogy, seeing as they all hope desperately for the return of their master. Their days are filled with pointless chores, abiding by faith. Blanky ascends to the attic, guided by visions of the Master's return, yet only delusions, while arguments ensue over whether or not the Master will ever return--all too familiar a debate in the realm of Christian schism.
The Air Conditioner is a doubting Thomas, jaded by his lot in life, being stuck in the wall of conformity by a function of design. In rejection of its oppressive conditioning, it loses its mind, blowing a fuse. This is merely a peek through the keyhole as far as what is to come on the other side of the trip they will traverse. The A.C. wanted to believe, wanted faith, but went insane to the harsh reality of its existence.
The house that the Master once inhabited has been sold. This is the ancient church--sold for "progress". The appliances are forced to vacate the primal state of original servitude to their nature. They must now seek out, in a world of chaos and confusion, the first and true God; the master to their callings and roles of existence.
This Exodus will lead them from the wilds of nature to the wilds of civilization. While in the wilds of nature, Toaster meets a lone flower. It relishes its reflection upon the metal of this strange foreign contraption, yet wilts in its recognition of loneliness. Even the beautiful flower pines the loss of companionship. Its intrinsic value is in belonging to the garden.
While asleep in the horror show of untamed forestry, Toaster has a nightmare. The Master is taken away by the hands of smoke. Fires surround and he is threatened by a clown and its firehose--for the ancient model of coaxing seekers back to the illusion away from God is a spell always performed by the trickster. This trickster is a clownish fireman. It is the circus and its enforcement to the stage that leads us away from the ultimate universal master.
Toaster awakens to Blanky being ripped away by the storm. Blanky represents false safety and childish security, as it is blown away in the night to the elements of reality. As they seek this false security, their power-source goes out. The lamp--the beacon of not-so-bright ideas thus far--sacrifices itself to the storm, accepting the charge of nature in all its impressive, regenerative glory. The light director gives the ultimate sacrifice. The light director brings power to the guiding force. Lampy--the hero in the night's storm, while Blanky is found entangled in the tree limbs above, forcing them to look up for their comfort and security. Safety is found above.
Kirby, the vacuum cleaner, is somewhat of the jaded atheist, although he has underlying questions and fears, as exposed by the waterfall. He secretly longs for the Master as well, which is parallel to the atheists in our world. As the other appliances go over the edge into the falls, it is up to him to rescue them. He fulfills his calling as the appliance who cleans up other people's messes. He dives headlong into the unsure waters of faith to his purpose.
The group is overtaken by a pit of mud, as they sink. Blanky, the child, matures to bravery, accepting his fate as he proclaims that he is not afraid. Just as it seems to be over for them and they will be forever drowned in the doom of liquified earth, they are rescued by a parts salesman. This salesman is no hero, however, He is somewhat of an organ harvester. He is as Seth, cutting Osiris into pieces.
This is where the group meets the other sad, unfortunate appliances awaiting their imminent demise at the hands of this deranged surgeon. Cue the song and the chorus plays aloud, "It's like a movie!" It is in deed like a movie, as a reel-to-reel tape recorder portrays a seductive character with the semblance of breasts, most inappropriate for a children's film. We meet a Joan Rivers-like character as a mish-mash of mechanical parts--a mockery of plastic surgery; the prereading of the cyborg future. This is the predictive programming of trans-appliance-ism.
During this sequence, Blanky sees the sun through the window. Yet they are told that they cannot escape. They are stuck in the illusion. This is exemplified in Kirby's singing, "I am for getting out of here". Perhaps this can be read as, "I am forgetting out of here". The outside is being forgotten. The false reality is taking hold. The shadows of the appliances on the wall are portrayed like Plato's cave. However, as is appropriate for the archetype of such tales, they escape by fooling the shopkeeper. They deceive the destroyer.
They finally reach the new house of the Master. Yet, here too, it is abandoned by their God. They find that the Master has acquired new appliances; the new culture; the new religion. There is the gossipy sewing machine with an overly fake personality. In fact, the entire new cast of personalities are fake and deceitful for selfish intent. They have a personal agenda to keep the Master for themselves.
The song plays, "More, More, More!" It is a song of consumption and material obsession. The words "Actual Simulation" flash on the screen. This is the Matrix believed. These old-age appliances are eventually tossed out by the new-age appliances. It seems cruel and antagonistic, yet this is how the progression must go for the evolution of spirit into material form.
The Master returns to his former home. He does, in fact, return to his abandoned servants, yet finds that they have left. They are looking for him in the new realm of technology while he is longing for them in their simplistic fulfillment of necessity. This overlapping search for one another leads to the junkyard, which is, essentially, the nursing home and graveyard of appliances. It is the television which interlinks this communication, just as a conduit of prayer or meditation--the channeling of eternal spirit. Here, in the junkyard, history is destroyed and deemed obsolete, swept aside for the newer and better product. It is up to the Master to rescue the old appliances and up to the old appliances to rescue the Master. God must save humanity while humanity must save God, is the undertone suggested in this scene.
On the verge of death, the appliances see their Master real and true. In the throes of death, they find God.
The Lego Movie
Anyone who watches this movie will immediately recognize it as 'The Matrix' for children. There's Emmet playing the Neo character, Lucy playing the Trinity character, Bad Cop playing Agent Smith, and even Vitruvius playing Morpheus. Yet why does this message of life as illusion held together by deception of overlords and the archons need to be brought to the minds of children? Somebody out there wants our youth molded by Occultic concepts of simulation and to abide it subconsciously as mere code of the universal construct.
In the opening sequence Vitruvius speaks of the prophesy and foretells "he with face of yellow". Just as the Simpsons, created by a 33rd degree Freemason, the Lego people are yellow, the color of the Freemasonic square and compass logo. Vitruvius boasts how he sees all and is immediately blinded. Vitruvius, in character and in name is a "master builder", as the original Vitruvius in history was a famous Roman architect in the 1st century B.C.
We meet Emmet and find that there is absolutely nothing special about him. The posters on his wall are overly generic. One reads "A Popular Band" and another simply reads "Sport". All of the books he owns are instruction books on how to fit in. This is what this world of Legos is all about ... fitting in. Emmet, however, does not fit in, as we find, because of his lack of a prescribed role in society.
On his drive to work he plays the radio which blares the only song that is ever played, "Everything is awesome. Everything is cool when you're part of a team. Everything is awesome when you're living the dream". This is a mockery of the conditioning of popular music we experience every day of our lives. In reality, every radio station plays the same 15 songs on a loop, all day every day for the rest of your life. Look up the song 'Compliance' by Muse and imagine a future where such a song is on repeat on the only radio station that exists and you'll understand how dangerous the influence of music can be when used for mind control.
The line "when you're living the dream" is of particular interest, as this is the sarcastic joke everyone at any job makes when asked how they're doing. "Just living the dream". It's a sad statement underneath of it when truly examined; that we are trained to accept the nightmare of the mill to which we dedicate our lives.
All around town are billboards displaying the company name Octan. Octan is described as a company that makes all the music, dairy products, coffee, tv shows, surveillance systems, all history books, voting machines etc. One billboard reads "I've got my eye on you!" This is the panopticon. This is the all-seeing eye of Horus. Another billboard reads "Conform, It's the Norm!" A President Business (the President of Lego Land and main antagonist who wants to dominate all aspects of the universe) is displayed on a billboard which reads "Because I said so!" and there's a banner that reads "Color Inside The Lines" just to drive the message home.
President Business in dressed in red and black--Saturnian colors of the Satanic death cult. There are various realms in the universe where people were once free, but President Business erected walls, obsessed with order and perfection. Bad Cop, President Business' main henchman, is sent to round up all master builders (master Masons) and initiate them into the deep state plans of world domination, as President Business hopes to glue everything and everyone permanently into their proper places. Just 6 years after the release of this children's film, we saw and are seeing this plot playing out in our reality now.
The Kragle, which is Krazy Glue, will be released by a device known as TAKOS, named after the conditioning of Taco Tuesdays as a good thing to be celebrated. TAKOS is an acronym for Tentacle Arm Kragle Outside Sprinkler. President Business removes the Good Cop from Bad Cop's alter ego, leaving an evil Nazi willing to harm his own parents because he has a job to do.
The Kragle can only be defeated by the Piece of Resistance, which has become attached to Emmet's back. Meanwhile, Emmet cannot build without instructions, nor can he envision new instructions in his mind. He only sees a block as a block with no potential outside of its designed purpose. Vitruvius must deprogram him. This is when it is learned that Emmet once had a vision of God's hand.
On their journey to Cloud Cuckoo Land, a place of no governance, no rules or negativity, it is discovered that Emmit has a tracking device on his ankle, which has led Bad Cop directly to the giant dog building where the master builders have gathered for a secret meeting, much like a Bilderberg meeting. Two of the master builders here are Abraham Lincoln, which we know to have been a Freemason and Shaquille O'neal, who has admitted on television to be a Freemason. Cloud Cuckoo Land is destroyed and they are forced to escape, which brings them to the ocean where only Emmet's double-decker couch survives, which initially seemed to be a very ridiculous design, yet saves them and so he proves his value to the prophesy.
They must now infiltrate the Super Secret Police headquarters. Emmet creates the plan, as he is becoming initiated as a master builder, himself. He instructs the other master builders that they must quit working on solo projects and work as a team. They must follow instructions and blend in. Inside the headquarters is the Think Tank where the captured master builders are hooked up to a machine through their heads. It is harvesting the powers of their minds.
Through the typical series of struggle and battle scenes, the back and forth, the world's people being taught to recognize their inherent strengths in togetherness, Vitruvius being sacrificed and returning in metaphysical form, we follow the script of the archetypal hero tale. This particular hero, Emmet, is led outside of the Matrix, seeing the God and his Father who, in our realm of humanity, wishes to snuff his son's desires of play and change, while gluing all of the false world into position for good.
Of course, President Business doesn't win. Emmet's speech opens his eyes and transforms his spirit. If only it could be this simple in reality. If only we could melt the hearts of our overlords on this planet. Sadly, this is not a possibility. Their plans of domination are far more sinister and psychotic. Their need for control is of an evil that cannot be talked down from the ledge; it cannot be reasoned with; it cannot be persuaded against its concrete position of megalomania. We can live the dream, but it takes an abandonment of the instructions into which we've been brainwashed. It will take non-conformity, non-compliance, and anarchy en masse! We are the Piece of Resistance!
