Trinity on all fours
The freshest Indiana film begins with a small primal mound linking the whole shebang into primal symbology. This mound , prior to losing its top, hints that Paramount are a bout to make a MOUNTAIN out of a MOLEHILL, the tiny mote on which a history of Hype has evolved, and I don't mean for the film but for the whole history movie - story-line involving kings-queens enacting vicious war for glittery stuff, protected in their spurious retelling by an army of lawyers and recondite enforcers.
Perhaps Pyramid builders = highly evolved and informed prairie DOGs.
The film deals the circular Stargate prevalence routine, all gleefully cross-haired so that we have something to set our sights on. Anyhow Indy declines the offer of Stargate illumination as he has got tenure at his University.
Hey Kids, do u really want illumination, or would u prefer to learn about it.
its all there , be responsible, or else!
Cynicism aside, which is difficult considering Harrison's performance, we see the Indy character , with his CAP on standing next to the singular stella of the US Army. A 77 nestles in the numbers to the left which helps Indy get in line for the 3rd eye fingering he gets from The Soviet - so 1 White Star and 1 Red Star, telling us that the Sovs and the Yanks were merely the alter-flips of that old Templar coin
The Sov Colonel-Doctor with the Pulp Fiction-Uma Thurman BOB reuptaken by K8 Blanchette, who has been chosen for the similarity of her face to the alien crew , and I guess we're s'posed to rez with her Regal roles. Sexless as always Indy films employ the androgyne versus the homely Materna, and coterie of long-standing friends. the Sexless sex, Blanchette this time, superimposes the sexless though ruthless 'drodge as this proves a symbol of great force in 'magical ' pracctice.
Late in the film her eyes shine lights of knowledge as she 'burns' up, forcing us to imagine that 'too much' knowledge will invoke a human-sized nuclear reaction.
As we often externalise our inherent trepidation of knowledge we notice that with the surge in 'apparent' human intelligence, our physical world has built atomic bombs. These bombs , emerge from their containers, like the Genies emerging from the bottle, and as with knowledge, once one knows it , it becomes increasingly difficult to put it all back in.
Cate Blanchett takes on the ADAM KADMON role in reverse, her access of knowledges timed with the sealing of the aliens in their silver-spinning-bird
Note her bloodless hand. She attempts to extract something from Indy's mind but the man proves such a boorish, grumpy, know it all that she gives up almost immediately, leaving him instead for the homely clutches of the mother of his child
The film takes place in 1957 when a fair few bombs got set off in Nevada and environs. This one's called DIABLO and burst into life on JUNE 24.
AREA 51 and the Rose Swill Incident muggles into view. Last week the Oceanic 6 flew in on Coast Guard Flight 1717, this week the troops swoop into Area 3 x 17. Various tall buildings resonate with the large Hangar doors that store stuff for no apparent purpose other than it might persuade humans not to get mortgages, or buy SUVs a couple of years before they proceed to pay the highest-ever fuel prices.
The Genius Bottle. Hermetically sealed, magically made , toponomically situated, the individual awaits illuminism. Like Polynesian priests the 'Little Boy' resides outside the city gates.
Indy has no intention of illumination or initiation, grumpy = fine and forces his aging bulk into a refrigerator while the scorching takes place. He flings out innocent friuts to simmer a la 'tomique.
His dark personality the film highlights here . The 'fridge has lead-lining, thus Indy, dark and lacking anything approaching humour aligns himself wwith SATURN, who protects his tetchy savant from SOL's sudden summertime.
Saturn-protected Indy strides to the ridge to greet the Genie. Out of shot his BULLWHIP, which , originally made from a bull's penis, lends a Masonic KluKluXer motif to all of Indy's adventures [ strong Scots connexions via his father]
As reported the '57 Atomic Trials , to those in the know, might have set off a couple of alarm-bells ringing. The film tells the story how aliens will do anything to get off the planet once golf-playing humans start fiddling with the requisite Maths and Poetry to construct vast instruments of death [ or threshold-invokers for those who don't hold with death]. Life and Death aside, atomic energy burns.
The double H ranch effect - below we see Harold OX-ley [ Bull - NRG path], palyed by John Hurt , a great friend of HENRY Jones. He's surrogate father to Henry's son giving the kid a double H Chariot bearing, and with Indy's sperm and Harolds expert tutelage we find that the youngster has been born[e] via these 2 males archetypes. This also sets up the Neo-Masonic Ritual of Disrecognition where the supplicant gets shown one face as a father figure before getting whipped through a miasmasonical terror-ride to meet his father whom , of course, he finds to impossible to recognise as such, thus allowing various agencies to manipulate his need for male stability for the rest of his life.
Indy's famous BULLWHIP links with the other dad's OXLEY , castrated bull appellation
Here a Spire-Al-Amid, the low pressure column of transcendent tranquility at the centre of the cyclone. The updated CYCLONE from the WIZARD of OZ takes on Steelbergian proportions.
Often these movie stargate themes collect around stable centres with spinning periphs - which links 'me' to spinning to RAVEL'S BOLERO. 16 minutes of fun for the price of pizza - Terra Lumina
Many years ago in 1984, STARMAN , starring Jeff Bridges , as the alien, released. He had to get to a crater in AriZOna so his kind could beam him back to thier 'space'. before setting off he impregnated his human lover, acted by KAREN ALLEN, who pops into the Indy story as the mother of Indy's son, played by Hiram LeBoeuf. As STARMAN ended before we could see the baby we don't know what it looks like or where it went.
Thus Karen Allen , in her atomic little way, becomes wife -child-bearer of 3 males - Indy, the human father, Oxley, the Surro-gate for both fathers, while Jeff Bridges as the Alien provides the divine spark now coursing through the newly-inished Indy Hiram Shia Labiff
Whether Starman Jeff Bridges had contact, or perhaps got on well with the 13 into 1 Alien who flies off at the end of this pic, I know not. But doubtless trans-timing makes it easier to avoid alimony payments. Legally Karen Allen has no chance but the alien's not a fool and despite impregnating Karen 27 years into the future decides he'll do the honourable thing and leave her to morose , aging Indy
No Forwarding Address
Nevertheless we get reminded of the wonders of spinning as a kind of body-mind NRG 'aligning' concept dance. Better than spinning like Uranium in a tiny single-roomed bottle with millions of NEIGHBOURS only to introduce yourself to an audience that dissolves before you - which is essentially the Cain and Abel story [ Human as NRG 'v' Human as Robot]
To end at the beginning we find the spinning cyclonic filmette created in OZ, though reversed.
In the centre lurks YZO which gives NY and OZ considering the rotating Z
The first atomic explosion took place at TRINITY after the bomb had remained in POPE [Dad]prior to the blast. A Trinity of Fathers appears [ under certain conditions] inthis film with Karen Allen[KA], bearer of alien children, enjoying the attentions of Jeff Bridges , Indy and Harold. Thus a sort of atom-image with 3 Atoms spinning round a NU-cleus or another atom which when jiggled produces a son , the product of all three.
Atomic Theory emerged from the desperate need to save the 'family unit', yet this menage-a-quatre bombs the cereal-box family to dust [ which will get gathered up and breathed into some fresh Golem materia]. The film does give this metaphor ad plastic Americans bubble and melt before the awesome power of the family-in-a-bottle.
Now I am become BREATH.........
