Avatar . . . The Real Story!
Comments from the Peanut Gallery
Here are just a few comments from our fellow Americans . . . .
• I wouldn't claim to be attached to that eco-tard wanna-be sci-fi version of "Dances with Wolves"
• I actually thought James stole the plot from Pocahantas
• It's just a modern version of Fern Gully
• Dances with Fern Gully Wolves
• Plot to Avatar.....boy meets girl ..they don't like each other at 1st... then love each other... then have a falling out ....then live happily ever after....somehow that sounds vaguely familiar
• The writer for Ferngully so sue too. Avatar basically ripped that entire movie.
• Cameron was also sued by Harlan Ellison in the 80s for lifting the plot of "The Terminator" from an Outer Limits episode he wrote. The case was so open-and-shut that Jimmy C settled out of court for big bucks.
• C'mon, everyone knows that Avatar ripped off Dances with Wolves.• Avatar was stolen from pochantas. Native people in a beautiful land, in tune with nature, had a magical holy tree that they can talk too, forienger falls in love with daughter of cheiftan, jealous betrothed of said daughter, 2 sides fight, have magical sentient animals, same movie.
• Then everyone who ever wrote a Cowboys and Indians story needs to file suit against him too. If someone makes it big (e.g., hard work, luck, or the lottery) there is always someone out there to steal it from you.
• I always thought Avatar was a rip off of Dances with Wolves or The Last Samurai, take your pick they are both the same basic premise, just told in a sci-fi format. With maybe a little of the Emerald Forest thrown in for a touch of variety. Maybe the makers of those films should sue Eric Ryder.
Taking A Ride
While cruising the internet I came across an article on Yahoo about James Cameron being sued for stealing the idea for his movie Avatar from another writer, unfortunately this is a common practice in the movie industry that goes widely unreported. In this article I help to explain Avatar the real story as more of a history lesson. than sci-fi thriller.
What stunned me to my core was the comments section below the article, where comment after comment made it abundantly clear that almost everyone had missed the whole point of the movie. I was floored, it was beyond belief that these people obviously had no clue to what the true meaning behind the flick was.
I wanted to SCREAM, How Truly Stupid is America? Have we been so conditioned to allow others to do our thinking for us we cannot connect the dots in a simple sci-fi movie!
Then I began to reflect on what was NOT being said and found that most if not all weren't thinking outside the box, they weren't thinking at all. They were just repeating what their limited perspective and version of history allowed for.
Most of the comments indicated that America related the story to either Dances With Wolves, Pocohantas or Fern Gully, of which none are even close in my opinion. When dealing with a public so oblivious to their own history, it shouldn't be a surprise that they can't think in the abstract or employ the use symbolism in their critical thinking skills or lack there of.
Being an early American history buff I could write a whole article about the inconsistencies and anachronisms that showed up in Dances with Wolves, as that movie made me cringe from the disinformation it spread. By the time Dunbar reached the Western Frontier the Sioux would have been well acquainted with the migration West as the Gold Rush happened before the Civil War not after.
Based on the comments perhaps I give Cameron to much credit, as I thought for sure that his premise for the movie was based on the very first Humans. The first Humanoids that had the first original thoughts . . .
I think, therefore I am!
The first humanoid creatures to have conscious thoughts were obviously tree dwellers and probable began their civilizations in the trees themselves, as trees offered the only true protection from predators that they could find, day or night. They built their homes or nest in the trees with branches and other materials to allow a safe haven to sleep in.
Although fire was discovered fairly early on, not by lightening, but with original thinking, it wasn't used for cooking until they moved to the ground much later in their social development. One must remember or realize that large trees would provide for a thinking reasoning intelligence everything they would need from transportation and safety to food and shelter.
Because the human species began their sentient existence million's of years ago, when plants an animals were much larger than they are today, it afforded our ancestors a much broader range of trees in which to live. Many of the trees a million's of years ago were the size of our current Redwoods and larger, offering our tree dwelling ancestors of yesterday a natural setting in which to live and travel.
So much of the early human's social structure was built around the trees they lived in. They would have built their 'cities' in the trees also and because wood is biodegradable nothing would remain of these vast social structures. Our first and only ancestors were more akin to a modern Lemur than a monkey, hence the ancient civilization known as Lemur, the adversaries of the Atlantean's.
Yes, that would mean that we had tails that weren't just for show!
Although Darwinism is certainly an interesting concept, it holds no water and is so full of holes that even the author Darwin himself had serious misgivings about linking his name to the work. He almost aborted the project and only completed his book of theories because of some serious donations (money) and some serious persuading from the TPTB to create a plausible explanation that differed from Creationism (the Church).
This was done to offer the common man skeptical of creationism, yet unwilling to use critical thinking, a reasonable alternative to the Bibles Genesis story!
He felt, based on some of his letters written before his death, that there was no way true intellectuals would subscribe to his theories and that he wouldn't be taken seriously . . . aaaah he would truly spin in his grave if he knew how far his theories have been taken!
There came a time in our early beginnings when our ancestors spent more and more time on the ground and not long after we had moved permanently to the ground, a race of Aliens came to our Planet seeking precious minerals for their dying Planet (see ). These Aliens barely recognized us as even being sentient and I doubt they saw us as anything more than food or sport or pets and certainly not a threat. The 12th Planet
They claimed the Planet as their own and went about mining the precious minerals they needed.
There are many books that subscribe to this theory of our beginnings (The Urantia Book) and just because many Americans are unaware of these theories doesn't even begin to make them less credible. The censorship of ideas, books and concepts in our society today is truly appalling and because these ideas may seem new or even fantasy to the average reader only supports my contention that America has been dulled by the same old rhetoric for hundreds of years.
Many of our own bestscientist, archeologists and writers have been discouraged, ridiculed and even blacklisted from making a living for simple voicing their ideas let alone trying to publish anything that goes against orthodox history (Geologist Virginia Steen-McIntyre). This attitude of ignorance has gone on far too long and I applaud Hub Pages for allowing these writers to share their knowledge with America and the World.
"When a true genius appears in this world, you may know him by this sign, that the dunces are all in confederacy against him." - Jonathan Swift
To me, what I have found even more incredible than some of the ancient discoveries made by archeologists is that Google refuses to list the more controversial sites, unless one searches specifically by the name of the leading archeologists. This is true censorship by the establishment and prevents the average man from realizing the true extent that orthodox historians (The Powers That Be) have gone to keep us in the dark.
Books Make A Difference
For me, the movie Avatar was symbolic of our early history, the Na'vi playing the role of early Humans on Earth and the Humans playing the role of Alien Miners on Pandora.
Because the idea of our early history from tree dwelling Lemurs to ground dwelling bipeds has been largely censored from our history books, many people have never made the connection.
Although Avatar had a relatively happy ending, depending on ones perspective, the possibility of the Na'vi actually kicking this technologically superior race off their planet is typical of the fantasy of all movies. However putting the impracticality of such a notion aside, I believe the movie was intended to awaken in humanity the connection between our species and Mother Earth.
The main point of the movie is to show that every living sentient being no matter where you live has the freedom, a gift from the Prime Creator, to make the choice to do the right thing or die trying or do wrong. This choice is what will separate the humans that will Ascend in the new order of life or remain behind.
That we have been fed a systematic pattern of disinformation to our true beginnings is obvious to me, but perhaps less so to my fellow humans.
This should not come as a surprise to me, but is, due in large part to my ignorance of the wide spread censorship of ideas and lack of critical thinking my fellow humans practice on a daily basis.
Many concepts and ideas that I take for granted as common knowledge, such as there being three buildings (Building 7) that were completely destroyed on 9/11 to the real reason marijuana was made illegal, still to this day take me by surprise when I find that reasonable informed people (sheeple) are unaware of them.
There are a great deal of interesting concepts that have not been explored by the movie industry, such as the Hollow Earth concept and the true beginnings of mankind to Native Americans before the white man arrived such as the movie Wind Walkers. Here is a movie with no white men in the entire movie, a truly refreshing concept, set in a time before their arrival in the Western Frontier, but perhaps that is a subject for another hub . . .
I offer my perspective of the World for those willing to think outside the box and no longer require proof to know or feel the truth in their hearts!
I hope I have helped those looking for the truth behind Avatar the real story!
