Into the Weird - Star Wars and the Occult
It's been a while since I've done an installment in this series primarily because it's a series that is meant to focus only on the fringes of already fringe beliefs. Subjects like creationism, bigfoot research or EVPs are too mainstream. So it takes a good long while for me to decide what subjects are weird enough to venture into for Into the Weird.
For a while now I have been fascinated with the obsession some have over the connections between the so-called Illuminati, Hollywood and occult or even SATANIC forces. So make sure your hyper drive is fully function as we return to a galaxy far far away and explore the reaches of the very real – very fringe – belief that Star Wars is influenced not just by the occult but by Satan worshipers who rule the world.
For a certain very small subset of Christians Satan is everywhere, in everything, always on the prowl as the Bible says “seeking whom he may devour”. But they don't extend this merely to foul deeds or bad fortune but even in the entertainment they consume on television and in the movies.
Apparently even fictional sins can lead you astray if you allow yourself to have fun while watching them depicted. Now there is no doubt that magic, fantasy and yes perhaps even the “Occult” have influenced our entertainment industry but these believers go one step further, believing that there is a Satanic conspiracy controlling not just Hollywood but also the wealthy political and financial leaders of the entire world.
Beliefs under this umbrella range in absurdity, from the idea that Kanye West and Jay-Z worship the devil, are Master Masons, and are using their music and influence not only to drive children and young adults to sin but to actually possess them with demonic spirits through the power of music. Nearly every human being in Hollywood, the music industry and politics/big business has been implicated in this conspiracy. Apparently if you are wealthy and powerful it means you are pressured into this cult of devil worshipers who plan to use Satanic powers to usher in a new dark age.
It sounds like something out of a bad X-Files rip-off but if you're willing to take the Bible literally it is an understandable, albeit delusory, conclusion to reach.
Coincidence you think this resemblance is, do you?
So what connection does this whole wild conspiracy have with Star Wars?
Yoda from Star Wars is, supposedly, a figure within this Luciferian mystery cult. As Lucifer means morning star, Lux being the Latin word for LIGHT, the believers in this religion believe they are on the light side of the Force. The Force is, of course, what gives a Jedi their power, it is an ancient mystical force that can align itself with almost any mythology. In fact that seems to have been George Lucas' point, the Force is ubiquitous, whether you are Christian or Jew, Muslim or Buddhist you understand the idea of an overarching positive force in the Universe. But to believers in this sinister mystery cult the Force is just a code word for magic, and all magic that doesn't come directly from God is evil.
Yoda is a spirit or demon that is summoned by the practitioners of these dark rituals, the ultimate teacher of the dark arts and, some sources suggest, synonymous with the demon Mephistopheles. George Lucas, having become a part of the Hollywood elite by the time of Empire Strikes Back would have now had access to what their dark plan would entail. He would be able to proselytize his new religion through one of the most influential and “child friendly” works of fiction ever devised.
Jedi Powers = Psychic Occult Powers
The Bible is a veritable smorgasbord of ancient superstition but few Christians know just how weird its restrictions and claims get. For example many Christians these days are fascinated by and even by into the idea of Mediums, or those that can speak to the spirits of the dead. What few people realize is that things like curses, foretelling the future and channeling spirits are all strictly forbidden by the Bible. Deuteronomy 18:10-14 states:
There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the Lord: and because of these abominations the Lord thy God doth drive them out from before thee. Thou shalt be perfect with the Lord thy God. For these nations, which thou shalt possess, hearkened unto observers of times, and unto diviners: but as for thee, the Lord thy God hath not suffered thee so to do.
It is not that these things are impossible, no the Bible full admits there is a such thing as wizards, necromancers, and those that can see into the future but these things are meant to be done only by God's chosen Prophets. In other words these forces are God's jurisdiction and are not to be used for your personal gain or by anyone who isn't directly touched by the hand of God.
But of course in Star Wars there is plenty of talking to the dead that goes on. When Obi-Wan Kenobi dies he returns to Luke in the form of a ghost while Luke is being taught by Yoda. Yoda also instructs Luke, to some degree, in seeing into the future and moving objects with this mind. All of these abilities are meant to only be undertaken, so the paranoid Christians believe, under God's direct command.
Once again our children are apparently exposed to the secrets taught by this mystery cult.
The Nazi Connection
Another belief I've encountered is that Star Wars presents a story that actually supports the Nazi agenda of forming a master race, an agenda that the Illuminati still possess. The web of conspiracy on this one unfolds as follows. Within the story of Star Wars we follow one particular blood-line, that of Anakin Skywalker. His birth is surrounded by mystery as he has no Father, an apparent attempt at Lucas to create a dark messiah character, or anti-christ.
In actuality his birth is later suggested, in Revenge of the Sith, to be an artificial occurrence. This creates a bridge with the idea of a moonchild I presented in a previous Into the Weird about the occult - the idea that with the right rituals and the right confluence of circumstances and energies, you could create a special child. In Revenge of the Sith it is hinted at that Anakin's Mother was impregnated under such circumstances, manipulating the “midichlorians” to create life.
Anakin's bloodline is now powerful with the Force and Anakin or any Jedi can pass on their inherent gift. It is believed by many conspiracy theorists, and for somewhat good reasons, that the wealthy and powerful employ endogamy within their own bloodlines and communities in order to stay in power. This has led to people like David Icke suggesting that even as far back as ancient Egypt and Babylon, the places from which the mystery cult originally emerged, the bloodlines have remained the same. Certainly there is some truth to the idea that, especially during times of Monarchy when Kings and Queens ruled over most of Europe, there was a lot of inbreeding and marrying only within nobility.
The idea that class and race were something deeper and far more fundamental than minor genetic variations and circumstances of birth and luck is still one we struggle to be done with. Some of these conspiracy theorists would suggest that, like the eugenicists of the early 20th century the Luciferian cult that rules the world believes itself apart from the rest of the human species, having been warped by power and wealth for centuries and, potentially, being involved with the Devil himself.
So it is that Star Wars shows the Jedi ruling right alongside the Galactic Senate as if a separate body of its government, similar to the wealthy and heavily inbred bloodlines proposed by the conspiracy theorists, pulling strings behind the scenes of the world's legislatures with Jedi like persuasion. In the prequel trilogy this council of Jedi oversee a war where the army of the Republic is made up of Clones, treated as expendable bullet sponges.
Although in the Star Wars expanded Universe the clones were humanized and given individual identities, here they are cannon fodder. For this powerful Occult aristocracy, their bloodlines and occult knowledge make them above the average citizen and certainly above the military. If Star Wars really is a reflection of the way the Elite feel about themselves it would make sense. Their enemy, the Sith, is attempting to consolidate power and dissolve democracy, and only this noble class of Jedi stands in their way.
So what is Star Wars? Is it a fun sci-fi fantasy film that's fit for the whole family? Or is it a dark blueprint of the Luciferian agenda? Is it's portrayal of the Force a Universal translation of the fundamental idea behind all religions or is it a sinister attempt to smuggle in the teachings of a Satanic mystery cult? Are it's heroes merely meant to harken back to Arthurian legends of swords and sorcery and damsels in distress or is it a movie meant to tell us that we are unaware of the fact we are subservient to a noble Master race of dark wizards? Is Yoda and adorable puppet voiced by the legendary Frank Oz or the demonic entity to which you must sell your soul for power and glory?
All I know for sure is that Jar Jar Binks is definitely the work of Satan himself.
I encourage you to do your own research and join me next time on another journey Into the Weird. Thanks for reading!
