Happy Exploiting-Childhood-Nostalgia-In-Order-To-Teach-Gnostic-Philosophy Day…

Apparently today is international “Star Wars Day”…

The above items are all that remains of my once embarrassingly large collection of Star Wars memorabilia. Like many other “X-ers” whose elementary years took place in the 80’s, I was captured by the SW bug.

Then after being too cool for it in Junior High and High School, the nostalgic flame was rekindled within me in my college days when wandering through a kitschy shop I came a came across a life-size cardboard cutout of Boba Fett that I absolutely had to have. Before the remakes had come out, it still felt like a somewhat “retro” little thing, and I began to find myself slipping in VHS tapes of the trilogy in order to help me fall asleep at night, the hum of lightsabers and artoo’s beeps providing a surprisingly effective white noise of nostalgic soundscape.

But soon my fondness for stiff-appendaged action figures and wookie growls started to wane, as George Lucas began releasing his “re-mastered” versions of the first three films. Brighter explosions and deleted scenes with CGI Jabba weren’t all that impressive from my perspective, but they still could not have prepared me for the wake-up moment right around the corner known as “Episode I”…

Instead of experiencing anything remotely similar to the suped up 70’s space flashback I had been hoping for, I sat in my seat at the Cinerama feeling like I was watching something made for six-year-olds, which of course, I was. The “epic backstory” everyone awaited turned out to be nothing more than redesigned Stormtrooper outfits, and some bizarre bits about midi-chlorians and a virgin birth of the “prophesied one”.

The nostalgia was dead, and it didn’t matter how many new colors or combinations the lightsabers kept coming out in. The gritty, realistic feel of shooting on real film, with miniature models and intricate puppets was replaced with overly-saturated hues of green-screen backdrops and CGI characters that left you shaking your head at how Ewan McGregor had to overact so badly while talking to thin air on the set.

But anyhow, that’s not the point. The magnificent let-down of the prequels was in fact a blessing in disguise for me, because it served to finally cut the Lucasfilm cord in my dorky fan-boy heart, and enabled me to finally be able to step back and eventually comprehend how the whole ridiculous franchise was about so much more than just the most massive toy/cross-promotion scam in entertainment history. What Star Wars effectively did make the precepts of occultism and gnostic wizardry cool, and embedded them in a pop-culture language that could be absorbed by the masses…

This is hardly news to some people, but for many others is still something I don’t think is very well comprehended. To get into all the embedded symbolism and Luciferian allegory would be far beyond the scope of this post, but there are scores of researchers who have dedicated themselves to exploring these topics in great depth out there, so it’s certainly not a difficult thing to look into for oneself.

Lots of great symbolism to be found, and of course now with the new movies about to start coming out, speculations about what kinds of new subliminal content and memes could be coming next. For me, I think probably one of the most basic and fundamental elements which pertains to gnostic eschatology and the whole “New World Order vs. Truthers” paradigm, is the concept of the “dark anti-Christ” figure/empire being defeated by the “Light” hero/rebels. In the first video above you even see them equating the Sith Lords and the Empire with guys like George Dubbya and the NWO. I personally believe this is the exact intention.

“Only Sith Lords deal in absolutes”… Younger Obi-Wan says this to Anakin just before their duel over a river of lava in Episode III, and it serves as about as perfect a summation of the New Age gnostic belief system being propagated in these movies as you could find. The net takeaway? If you believe in “moral absolutes”, you are actually following the “dark side”, the side of religious intolerance and Imperialistic war-mongering oppressors like the Bushes and Rockefellers and Clintons etc. Unless you have a more “evolved” consciousness, then you are a slave to the “Sith lords”.

This type of dark/light conflation is at the heart of the Great Deception which will compel the world to embrace the “Man of Lawlessness”, as a perceived liberator, rather than some dictator. I too find it quite amazing that the name of the next Star Wars film is “The Force Awakens”, since a “grand awakening” or a “consciousness shift” is in fact the very thing that so many people who have bought into this whole Zeitgeistesque, New Age, Gnostic “truth movement” are constantly claiming is what the world needs to experience in order to throw off the shackles of the “evil empire”, the New World Order. They long for the day when there will be a mass awakening into some kind of “new humanity”, but in reality it will be the very opposite of what they are hoping for…

  1. Oh, man, that poor Stormtrooper looks so lonely there without all his friends 🙂 I still have lots of my Star Wars stuff: toys, books, everything. The first ever Star Wars thing I bought was a Return of the Jedi sticker album from 1984! I don’t know where it is now though.
    When it comes to the symbolism and stuff like that in Star Wars, while I’m aware of a lot of that going on, I somewhat choose to avoid looking into it: I just want to keep at least *one thing* in my world sweet and innocent and unpolluted by cynicism, occult ideas or conspiracies! Although it did strike me that the story in the prequels of how the Sith Lord (Satan) is posing the whole time as the great political saviour everyone loves and trusts and how the two sides of the great war tearing up the galaxy are, in reality, both orchestrated and controlled by the same person… does that ring any bells?

      1. Look, I totally get where you’re coming from! And I agree with most of it. I just don’t like to mix all the stuff with my ‘happy place’… and my happy place is basically the Ewok village 🙂 And don’t ever talk about ‘Lucifer’ and Star Wars again in the same sentence, you blasphemer!
        Seriously though, I know what you’re saying. But I don’t think Uncle George had any deliberate ‘occult’ leanings in his ideas for Star Wars. I’ve watched him talk about more in terms of classical mythology; but he actually hates it when people mix religious ideas into Star Wars.
