Coincidences are carefully orchestrated events by a brilliant puppet master and after watching House of Cards, I almost always doubt the existence of free will. Frank Underwood has an avid follower in me. But alas, I am here not to spew conspiracy theories (only) but to ask you if you also notice the similarities in our world events and the pseudo-predictions and prepping via Hollywood. Could this be the government’s way of getting the idea into our heads a la Inception before execution so that it is not as much of a shock to us, when it does happen?
Let’s just say, there’s a deadly virus sweeping some West African countries and ravaging the natives, then the heroic Western doctors try to find Patient Zero and cannot, then one of them gets infected and get moved back to say the UK for closer observation. I picture a cute nurse, cliché I know but stay with me on this…this sweet fresh-minted nurse wants to help this isolated man in his last moments, gets infected by a kiss (biting her is so Hollywood), she goes home, kisses her child, who then takes it to school and spreads it further by playing with the children (and this is why I am moving out of London!)
The not-so-secret Secret Book, about how we can focus and change our perceptions leading into the whole concept of abundance of the universe, potential of the humanity and the human brain is also being tested a la Transcendence and Lucy. The ability to transfer the human brain capacity to a computer or expand the capacity of use, tapping into hidden memories and knowledge would have been extremely useful during my University exams but it is a concept which is being sold to us alongside allowing humanoids such as robots control parts of our lives, Robocop, Extant, I-Robot… Think you do not have a robot, then ask Siri/Google Now whether you need an umbrella today. There are levels of thought-provoking instances in these movies, which imply that we evolve past our basic human instincts and expand.
A phrase by Morgan Freeman, stays with me throughout this thought-process, after all these years of human evolution, man’s ability to evolve from the other animals and use at least 10% of their brain capacity has allowed us to achieve so much. But then he says “And this is the crucial part of our philosophical reflection we have today: can we therefore conclude that humans are more concerned with “having” than “being”?
Next time, a series called Homeland wins Emmys and a long lost spy is brought home after being kidnapped for a long time, do not LOL. I bet when your TV screens go static and an alien voice pops up and says ‘we are going to invade earth’ you wouldn’t bat an eyelid, but go out and fight due to Hollywood’s many years of conditioning. There’s a lot that people in power know, and they are pretending not to tell us.
Now I will be off to build my personal bunker… for the invasion.
