On today’s episode of the Conspiracy Theories and Unpopular Culture podcast we conclude with part 2 of our analysis of Donnie Darko from 2001! This film has been controversial to say the least and there is no shortage of conspiracies about what this movie is truly about! Part 2 will cover the second half of the film as we learn about Crowley’s role in Thelema, the gnostic religion of the new age! 9/11 and the ‘new normal’ are all part of the big plan! Patrick Swayze plays the role of a guy involved with a ring of pizza-related activities (that possibly ties into Q and Trump if you can believe that)! It’s a wild ride- strap in!

For me personally, when approaching a role, it’s sort of hard to figure out because there’s so many things that he gets hit with. I think that Donnie is what he comes in contact with. In the simplest terms, like in more most abstract terms, I could say it’s, it’s a journey, like it’s just a journey about discovering who you are. And the irony of the whole thing is it like hopefully, by the end, it’s not only Donny who realizes it, but the audience in a way, and they have to go back and have to watch it again. Watch it again. But um, it’s just it’s just like this ridiculous. Fantastic, completely absurd. It completely naturalistic and realistic mixture of humor, like, sadness, comedy and madness, like, roll up in this ball of this like crazy storage journal. It forces you if it does force you at all, to come to your own conclusion about what it’s about. And that’s the cool thing. It’s like an individual experience for everyone. It’s not about one thing, which I think the coolest thing about talking about it is that no one can really come to any finite or, like objective conclusion.
Isaac Weishaupt 1:33
You’re listening to conspiracy theories in a popular culture. I’m your host, Isaac Weishaupt. And you’re listening to part two of the Donnie Darko film analysis. If you haven’t listened to part one, I beg you to do so. I’ll put a link in the show notes. I forgot to put a link in the show notes. It was last week published part one go to Illuminati watch. Calm is always defined, you know stuff. And then the first part, just to re capture what we talked about. I yammered for about 15 minutes about the film and the inception of the film and how it’s kind of like Netflix is dark series. But more understandable. Which I found curious because the name Donnie Darko, it’s right there in the title, Donnie Darko dark, right? Crazy. I didn’t I didn’t put that together. First time. I talked to you about this movie. But the film had pop culture events that pop culture. Columbine in 911. What would you call that? Yeah, I guess pop culture right now. Not really. You know what I’m saying? And we talked, we started the film The plot. And in the film, Donnie was having these hallucinations. visitations by Frank, the crazy bunny. And we were laying out all sorts of ideas. And I told you, you put a bunch of stuff in your back pocket. Like how Danny’s mom, her name is Rose, which will connect us into Alistair Crowley, which today will complete the movie and then I will give you the In conclusion, wrap up about what this is all about, according to me, just according to me, doesn’t make itself and Jake Gyllenhaal who was interviewed for this. Everyone’s got their own interpretation. And that was just mine. There are many like it, but this one is mine. And in the first part, we talked about Frank visiting Donnie Darko, like croley was visited by a was and we’re going to talk today more about Halloween, the timing of this movie. And the apocalypse, the harbinger of the New Age coming through. We talked about the chemical idea that Donnie presented Don is being channeled full of knowledge and the gnosis and the wisdom. He says destruction is a form of creation. How did he know about the alchemy that would present itself on a global level with 911? I don’t know. But that’s what he did. We talked about Jim Cunningham, who’s played by Patrick Swayze and how he was like this guru cult leader. We talked about Donnie Darko, his younger sister, and how she was reading the story she created and the director made sure you heard the passage that said the prince is led into a world full of strange and beautiful magic. Why did we hear only one excerpt? Why was this even a part of the story? Because the director is showing you Donnie Darko is making contact with an entity that is teaching a magic and creating a new reality, which is what this movie is all about. And I will prove it to you today. The last thing we talked about, Donnie was having another you know he’s visited by France. In his dreams, kind of, so we don’t know if he’s hallucinating or it’s a dream or if it’s reality or what’s going on. And he touched a mirror in the mirror rippled. We started talking about how this is the capitalistic tree of life. binah Vina, I know I pronounce it. I don’t follow Kabbalah, the Palace of mirrors and Frank’s on the other side. And he wants to communicate with Donnie. Now we’re ready to pick up on part two.
Anything I miss? Oh, and thank you for the reviews. I you guys are the best. I asked you to leave reviews for the podcast ratings reviews, and I will start reading them. And Boyle. Boy, did you ever. I appreciate that. Thank you lots of five stars. Very, you know, fill this my ego cup up, I have a lot of negative voices in my head. And I get negative reviews sometimes. And it really gets me bummed out. So it’s nice to know, there’s a lot of us that listen to the show and love it enough to take your time. And I get it. Time is precious. You don’t want to take the time to scroll through and click that button and even write something on top of it. My God, what I do deserve such great listeners. Because we’re on the same team. You know what I know, we know. That’s all I’m going to talk about with the reviews. If you want to help the show you want to support the show. That’s what great way you can do it. I’m concerned with the future of censorship. I might be getting paranoid, but hey, I’m a conspiracy guy. Of course, I’m paranoid. I feel like they’re going to shove shows like mine to the bottom of the search list. And the only way to combat that I know is to keep making the content you want. And for you do. Tell me like it, give it a five star and that helps push it up. Okay, moving on part two. Let’s wrap this film up. We’ve actually got a lot to get through. Let’s talk about Okay, so the film The next scene, like I told you in part one, there’s lots of scenes. Lots of rapid fire scene. So we see Patrick Swayze aka Jim Cunningham. He’s still teaching his guru stuff about fear and love. And they’re they’re reading these exercises on the board in the classroom. And Miss zari I think I painted the picture of Mrs. Fisher, who’s married to Dr. Fisher, who is besties with Jim Cunningham, played by badger Swayze. She’s the teacher. Right? But she’s all about that guru action. And she’s teaching the principles laid forth by Jim Cunningham. All right. All this will be important later, I promise. They are redoing exercises. indoctrinating the kids. And Donnie has chosen to come to the board and work through situation and describe whether someone is acting out of fear or love.
Unknown Speaker 8:03
Good, good, very good. Mr. Darko Ling Ling finds a wallet on the ground filled with money. She takes the wall to the address on a driver’s license. He keeps the money inside the wallet. I’m sorry for I don’t get this. Just place an X on the lifeline in the appropriate place. No, I mean, I know what to do. I just I don’t get this. You can just lump things into two categories. Things aren’t that simple.
Unknown Speaker 8:36
The Lifeline is divided that way. Well, life isn’t that simple. I mean, who cares if ling-ling returns the wallet and keeps the money has nothing to do with either fear, love, fear and love are the deepest of human emotions, okay. But you’re not listening to me. There are other things that need to be taken into account here, like the whole spectrum of human emotion. You can’t just lump everything into these two categories, and then just deny everything else. If you don’t complete the assignment, you’ll get zero for the day.
Isaac Weishaupt 9:09
And you hear what Donnie says he says not that simple. You can’t pick one or the other. That’s a false duality. You can’t say something is good or evil. Not in this new spirituality not in the New Age. There’s so much Shades of Grey sometimes evil is not even bad. Sometimes it’s not. That’s what they say. That’s the Gnostic belief. You can’t call something evil because not every not nothing is good and nothing is evil. Everything just is. And you could take this in a lot of directions. It’s not wrong to say that there’s degrees of gray in between the two. The but yeah, anyway, at this point, it’s obvious Frank is channeling knowledge into Donnie. He the crazy Bunny is influencing Donnie taking him down the rabbit hole just like Alice in Wonderland, who followed the rabbit to her new understanding of the world and inverted reality. Well, Frank has given Donnie this knowledge, the gnosis, a gnostic reality of how things work. Well, we see the school. Finally we see the school and it’s got the I, it’s a cross with the IHS under confirming, Donnie is going to a private Christian school. Because we suspected that, but I but I thought it on the whole film. Not one mention of Jesus Christ, not one. Not one painting of creed Jesus on the wall in the house. Found a very odd but sure enough, now we know for sure. But it’s very strange. The teachers aren’t talking about it. They’re talking about the guru, Jim Cunningham more than anything. So again, I’ll have the images on the Instagram at Isaac Weishaupt leggins. Subscribe, but you already did that last episode. Thank you. Just in case you missed it. link in the show notes. That’s where I’m going to put the images from Donnie Darko to support this whole show, you can follow along. Now, Donnie, he’s very intrigued by time travel, because Frank is trying to channel his information into him. And he tracks down his science teacher whom he spoke with earlier. But they have an interesting discussion on time travel. And the teacher tells him about wormholes, and Einstein Rosen bridges that could allow time travel to actually happen. So the teacher and first off the quantum nature of reality is going to be part of the new spirituality, the new religion of science. That’s a big bomb to drop on you. But that’s where we’re going with everything. Don’t believe me? Don’t believe me? Just watch. 10 years will be there. And I don’t know if it’s wrong. Again. Like I always say, I don’t know. That’s wrong. I’ve read Dr. Joe dispenza. A couple of his books, he talks about the quantum model of reality, and I don’t know that it’s wrong. I don’t know. So the teacher hands Donnie a book called the philosophy of time travel. And this was written by Roberta Sparrow, aka grandma death. Remember the teacher that was walking back and forth through her mailbox? Just like we all did during the 2020 during the thing that will never go away. And is revealed that she was a science teacher before she went a little loopy. So the plot thickens. Now, and for what it’s worth, I do recall on the Reddit conspiracies, One theory is that Danny’s girlfriend Gretchen aka genom alone from Hunger Games. She’s in fact reverse barrel on this time loop. I don’t know if that’s true. interesting idea. So anyway, Donnie, he thinks all of this is connected. And he tells us therapist what grandma death whispered in his ear earlier in the film that I told you, we would reveal And now’s the time, and it’s revealed the grandma death whispered that every living creature on earth dies alone. Very dark stuff. And Danny recollects a dog that he had that went under his porch to die alone, as grandma death claimed. Now you could take this and know that Donnie is subscribing do a philosophy of the Church of Satan that all men and women are merely animals just evolved animals. That’s all we are, according to them. But Dani also says the search for God is absurd, because we end up dying alone anyhow. Very dark. I mean, there, he’s putting the dark and Darko right.
Now, I thought based and let’s get personal, why not? Right? I thought, Well, that seems like a real pessimistic view of the world. But then it reminded me of my own father passing away. So we’ll cue up the light piano music. Let’s Get Real sensitive hair back in. Man was rolled back in the memory banks about nine years, okay. My dad, he was a real tough son of a bitch. Okay. He, he died really young and 56 because like you live a hard lifestyle and you know, and I visited him in a hospice. And I remember like, and I didn’t, okay, so I grew up In Pennsylvania, right, PA, I grew up a PA. But I live in Utah, right? Because I was in the military moved around a bunch area, Utah, don’t ask. And, and my father wasn’t doing well, I went to visit them, come back home to Utah. Find out he’s, he’s, he’s going down fast. So I go back out and he’s in the hospice, and my my planes flying out of Philly The next morning, early, early early. And I stay with my pops as long as I could. And you know, we had this tumult now, it’s a tumultuous relationship. But, you know, we didn’t have a sitcom relationship, like you see on TV, which I would argue most, most guys and their father is probably somewhere in the ballpark of normal. But we weren’t real touchy feely, we didn’t. We weren’t big into that stuff, right, growing up. And I stayed with them as long as I could. And I remember the whole night, my dad struggling, I was on my laptop, trying to stay awake for him, because like, he would like kind of like, pass out and then come to me, if you’ve ever seen someone diets, it’s nothing like in the movies, okay. And the movies, the movies are funny, it’s always like, go on without me. And like, they just kind of chill and they just close her eyes and peacefully go. And that’s, you know, that wasn’t what I witnessed. And my dad was like, he would kind of conk out and come to and he wasn’t able to talk at this point. And like, I remember, like, I was holding his hand as he would kind of wake up and come to him. Like, it’s almost like he was scared or something. I don’t know, I couldn’t communicate with them. And, you know, again, this was very abnormal. It wasn’t something I do. I did, like we didn’t, we weren’t infection of people. And, and I just washed my laptop and like he would come to and I, hey, it’s okay, dad, whatever, whatever. And I stayed up as long as I could stand up the whole night, had to roll out like four in the morning to catch this flight. And I just, I left the ball and just unloaded all this suppressed emotion, right? I don’t want to cry because my dad was a tough guy, right? And I didn’t want to like, show that. I don’t know why don’t ask me. Weird, you know, humans were weird people. So anyway, point being I say all this, I say all that to say this. He didn’t die until I left. He didn’t die until I left. He waited until it was gone. And it wasn’t like immediately I think it was, you know, the next day? I’m not really sure. I don’t remember. And, but the point being, that’s kind of what they’re talking about here. every living creature on earth dies alone. And there must be something to that. I mean, obviously, that’s not a universal truth. But there must be some generalized thing that maybe we don’t want to die while our loved ones are near us. It’s from my experience. It was nothing like the movies and I’ve heard this. I’ve got I don’t want to I got family members that work in the medical industry. And I’ve heard this before where a lot of people don’t fully like go to I don’t know what happens you got to go you got to give up. And finally like quit and go to rest in peace. I don’t really know. But like a lot of people though, the wait until the family members are gone to die. So is there something true to that? Or is Donnie just espousing a satanic doctrine? Oh, my God. We went dark. I don’t know. But I wanted to share that with you. Okay. All right. Let’s keep it moving. Donnie? He says all this stuff. And, and, and
do I spoil the ending? I mean, you already know this plot spoilers. Yeah, I’m gonna spoil the ending. So So Donnie, ends up dying alone in this film. Right? So it’s almost like he knows it’s gonna happen, which plays into this deterministic fate idea. And they talk about this throughout the film, this idea of like, can you choose your own path? Is there freewill or is everything pre determined? And it’s almost like a combination of the two is what happens with Donnie Darko. And we’ll get there. Let’s keep moving with the story. So Donnie, he’s chillin. He’s just kind of vibing. Right? He’s vibing. And you start seeing this, this clear goo emanating from everyone’s chest. That shows the path they are going to take. It’s like predicting the future time travel by seconds, kind of or maybe like fate indicating the path that these characters are going to take, but he sees it with his eyes. You see this gel, kind of like the Abyss if you’ve ever seen In the movie, the Abyss like his dad, like goes to the fridge and you see him follow his own trail that’s like a second in front of him. It’s hard to explain without showing you. And it starts laying this idea of fate versus free will. So Donnie, we find out he’s diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia, because he’s always talking about this Frank bunny guy, this imaginary friend is. And meanwhile, he’s staring in the mirror. On one of his trips. He’s staring at the mirror and stabbing at it with a knife. But Frank’s on the other side. So he’s stabbing Frank, but he not only stabbing Frank, he’s stabbing Frank in the all seeing eye, which becomes illuminated. As you can hear the thunder but it’s like God Himself. It’s it’s storming out here for once and forever in Utah in the high desert. But the all seeing eye becomes illuminated. And again, I got the image on the Instagram. You can see what I’m talking about. Good. taking his back, remembering the first part, we talked about the all seeing eye poster in Danny’s room, and we talked about the jet engine when they zoomed in, had the spiral or the all seeing eye of Horus. Now, Jim Cunningham, like I told you, this film jumps around scene to scene all the time. Jim Cunningham, aka Patrick Swayze. He’s doing a presentation of school cuz like, This Is that weird? channel, I don’t have Christian half guru school. And Swayze talks about this fictional character named Frank. And of course, Donnie perks up that rank. And then Donny, sort of evoking the spirit of Frank, the crazy bunny. He goes up and gets on the mic, and he starts dropping knowledge and he calls Jim Cunningham, the Antichrist. Now, I don’t know if Jim Swayze Jim Cunningham is supposed to be representing Christianity. Like I said, there’s not one mention of Christ in the whole movie. at all, he represents the establishment. But he gets into trouble as we find out later. Here’s another fun fact for you. Ashley Tisdale actually made a very minor appearance in the scene. She said, so the microphone also, I found out who Ashley Tisdale was from one of the top 10 movies of all time Spring Breakers, which I will be doing a film analysis on sometime here. I don’t know when. One of my favorite movies of all time, when we talked about that very briefly on tinfoil hat when I did my sort of debate with Alex Kazemi about occult magic and where the problems lie with magicians. Because he said he saw Spring Breakers 30 times in the movie theater. There’s a lot, a lot of times to go to a movie in the movie theater. The majors is my favorite movies of all time, and I’ve seen assault. The final matrix twice in the theater. That’s the only time I’ve ever gone to the theater twice. Okay, so Donnie, he’s studying this philosophy of time travel book that was from grandma death. Remember, science teacher gave it to him. And he tells his girlfriend, Gretchen, play by Jenna Malone from Hunger Games, that he’s seen this stuff. So he he shares the details with her. Okay, so she’s kind of getting hip to what he’s up to.
And then Nani intrigued by all this goes to the science teacher because he who else is going to talk to and the teacher starts explaining to Donnie vessels and how Donnie could be seeing these portals. And you hear talk about this determinism and freewill and fate and all these ideas.
Unknown Speaker 24:08
While each vessel travels along, vector, space time, along its center of gravity, like a sphere, big part, like like a spear that comes out of your chest. Sure. And in order for the vessel to travel through time, it’s got to find a porthole or in this case, a wormhole or aka deep portals. Could he pauses to appear at anywhere anytime? I think that’s highly unlikely. No, I think what you’re talking about is an act of God. Well, if God controls time, and all times pre decided I’m not following.
Unknown Speaker 24:48
Every living thing follows a long set path. And if you could see your path or channel then you could see into the future right like doubts a form of time travel.
Unknown Speaker 25:00
Well, you’re you’re contradicting yourself down. If we were able to see our destinies manifest themselves visually, then we would be given a choice to betray our chosen destinies. And the mere fact that this this choice exists would make all preformed destiny come to an end. Now, if you travel within God’s channel, I’m not going to be able to continue this conversation. Why? I could lose my job. Okay.
Isaac Weishaupt 25:39
So here we go with understanding that the film was about spirituality because Donnie argues, if you stay in God’s channel, you have no freewill. And the teacher, he stops the conversation because he says, Look, I’m gonna lose my job if we go to this exact question because he is employed by a private Christian school. And you know, science and Christianity don’t always jive. So that’s a problem that he faces and he just shuts it down like, well, I can’t talk about it, I’ll get fired. Now, the subtle cue here is that man, if he follows God doesn’t really have free will. He’s kind of doing what he’s told. He’s obedient, he subservient. And who is the archetype of the freewill? Well, the Antichrist, Lucifer, the rebel Angel. That’s why that’s why in the Garden of Eden, the serpent gives Adam and Eve, the freewill. And they eat the apple and boom, their eggs out of the garden. Because in the Gnostic tale, the serpent says, Hey, you don’t have to worship this God guy. In fact, God’s a real dick making you worship Him forever. Why are you just getting out of this thing? And do what you want to do? Do what thou wilt. Which is also why Donnie called Jim Cunningham Patrick Swayze, the Antichrist, because he represents the path of God, the Christian that, like we talked about the school is a Christian school. Because in the Gnostic form of reality, everything is inverted. So the Christian faith is the Antichrist. He says it says you’re the Antichrist. Okay. So, and hang in there, we’ll wrap this up a little nicer in the conclusion. So Donnie, he’s now in the classroom in the science class, again, a different day. And him and Gretchen are presenting, I guess they have school projects. And they’re talking about these infant memory generators. And listen to what the science teacher says. It’s very strange.
Unknown Speaker 28:02
So we call them AMG, and memory generators. Yeah. So the idea is that you buy these glasses for infants, and they wear them at night when they sleep.
Unknown Speaker 28:14
But inside the glasses are these slide photographs, and each photograph is of something peaceful or beautiful, whatever the parents want to put inside? And what effect Do you think that this would have on an infant?
Unknown Speaker 28:27
Well, the thing is, nobody remembers their infancy. And anyone who says they do is lying. So we think this will help develop memory earlier in life. Yeah.
Unknown Speaker 28:36
When did you stop and think that maybe infants need darkness that may be diagnosed as part of their natural development? No. Yeah. One of the parents like put in pictures of Satan. Dead people crap like that. Is that what you show your kids? Well, I mean, didn’t your dad like, stab your mom?
Isaac Weishaupt 29:07
The teacher says, What if the infant’s need the darkness for their development? He’s saying, infants, aka the sheep, the sheeple the babies out there, they need to embrace the dark side to evolve. That’s exactly it’s like gnostic ideas. One on one, this idea of, there’s no such thing as good and evil. You know, Carl Jung always talked about this embracing the shadow. One must understand the knowledge of good and evil to evolve into the next higher state of consciousness. This is going to be critical in the conclusion. You’re gonna love the conclusion. You’re in love. It’s so hard. Now, ironically, the antagonist of the film, this guy doing coke and Sephora Rogen, you heard they talked about how? What have you put pictures of Satan in those glasses? Because there’s a spiritual element to this film, and that’s what they’re cueing you into. They’re trying to like, trying to subtly show you these ideas. And cue the next scene. We got some more vacation, you weren’t hip to what’s going on yet. What you are now, because we’re here together talking about Donnie and Gretchen his girlfriend, they go to the movies to see Evil Dead. And they show on the marquee very clearly. there playing Evil Dead and Last Temptation of Christ. Some Halloween themed movies, right? I looked this up because I was curious about it. Evil Dead was released in 1981, October 15 1981, to be specific what the film takes place in October 1988. So they’re, they’re probably replaying Evil Dead because it’s Halloween time. The Last Temptation of Christ was actually released in 1988, August 12, no less. So it’s very possible. I mean, that’s a pretty long run in the theater two months. I don’t know if that was the case. But it’s very curious. Because the Last Temptation of Christ, which, look, you’re not going to be happy with me on this, you’re not gonna be proud of me. I’m not proud of me. I’ve never seen it. I need to see it. It’s a Scorsese film. I love Martin Scorsese films. It’s a blasphemous film. It’s got David Bowie in it, though. I mean, come on. But this film was very controversial is considered blasphemous, banned in several countries. And in fact, I was looking up the Richard Kelly interviews, the director of the film, because I was like, what’s this all about, with the Last Temptation of Christ being placed there. And Kelly was intrigued by the censorship elements in free speech because he knew what was coming right. And how the new generation interacts with these ideas. I’m going to read you what he said. For this story, it was about that moment, at the very end of the Reagan era, when we were in a time of transition. And there was a younger generation coming up, that was rejecting the war on drugs, the self help movement, the reagan policies, and the cultural mandate to behave a certain way. Check, check, check, check. I actually I like self help movement, I’ll stick with the only one that I agree with, okay. Things like the Last Temptation of Christ being banned from theaters, the tragic and amoral response to the AIDS epidemic, the censorship of different art forms. All of these things that the younger generation was appalled by, there was a transition of foot. So this story had to take place on the eve of this election going into the Halloween weekend. And it had to be that way. I could never tell this particular story in any other way. I argue it has more to do with the spiritual element of the movie, he’s saying has to do with free speech versus censorship. Choose your path. Okay. Now, Frank, Frank, the evil bunny here. He’s now hanging out with Donnie everywhere down he goes. He is Danny’s holy guardian angel. Just like a was was Crowley’s holy guardian angel. Now Donny asks, Frank, this he says, Why are you wearing that stupid bunny suit? Frank responds, why are you wearing that stupid man suit? Again, another gnostic idea, the idea that we’re prisoners, our souls are imprisoned in these flesh bags. By the the, the evil god, the demiurge. The God that doesn’t hate us, but wants us to be in slavery to him forever. He imprisoned our souls into this prison planet.
So Donnie, he makes Frank take the mask off and we see Frank without the bunny without the mask. And it turns out, his eyes all busted up. Because remember, Donnie stabbed him through the mirror. The Frank says, My name is Frank, because that’s my father and grandfather’s name. And this supports the idea of fate, determinism. He’s trapped in this loop of exactly what his parents wanted him to be. says you’re gonna do what your dad did and your grandfather did and all that. But Frank sees the value in liberation and he’s trying to break Donnie from a path laid before him and he instructs Donnie, you know what you need to do? Go burn down Jim Swayze his house. Pat sorry Patrick Swayze Jim Cunningham. Fun fact the guy who plays Frank the bunnies name is James Duvall. He’s actually the kid from Independence Day. Who played the son of rent Randy Quaid? The drunk pilot This saves the world. You know, you remember Randy Quaid from Christmas vacation. And Randy Quaid made those star whacker claims about the Illuminati taking out actors. You remember that? He was going a little nutty. Or was he? I don’t know. zania Donnie Darko, he lights Swayze house on fire whilst the town is watching a talent show at the cult school there. And the firefighters. They put the they put the fire out they search the remains of the house. And on the news, we see it. There was a kiddie porn dungeon hidden room inside the house. And they say that Jim Cunningham there Patrick Swayze, his character was there connecting him to this entire child porn ring now. This seems bizarre, doesn’t it? This took a weird turn. Well, here’s the thing. I think Richard Kelly, the director was trying to expose the Hollywood, you know, ring. And Swayze his character Jim Cunningham was plugged into the whole community. When you watch the film, watch the film again. You’ll see Dr. Fisher, who was his buddy, Mrs. Fisher, who was the teacher, head of the PTA or whatever. Dr. Fisher was friends with Danny’s family. Remember, they wanted young Samantha the young girl to get picked up by Mrs. Fisher. And an idea that we could float here that I actually didn’t include this in the conclusion because you know, I don’t know if it fits into the spirituality on one of the film, which I think is a higher sort of point of this whole thing. But Donnie might have been subjected to this child abuse, trauma abuse, which started his dissociative identity disorder, which you’ve heard about so many times. Cathy O’Brien talked about this. And you see the MK Ultra type traumatic injuries happening with these young celebrities. Oh, boy. Now it doesn’t fit into the croley angle too much. But it’s possible because this angle of the story doesn’t really fit the plot of the film or time travel. So why nowhere? This whole thing about the the guru, the community leader, and a ring of messing around with this pizza stuff. You know what I’m saying? When I say pizza stuff. And the followers of the guru of the this cult, they they think it’s just a conspiracy to smear the fearless leader. Oh my goodness. Is it good to be No. Is it Donald Trump? in queue? I don’t know. 20 years ahead of its time. I mean, curiously enough. Guess what Donnie Darko, his real name is? Donald J. Darko. Just like Donald J. Trump. My God. The ultimate conspiracy theory of the mall? I don’t know. I could be wrong. But I’m not. Now next year moving? I don’t know. I don’t know. That fits into it. I’m more. I’m more watched this film than the Gnostic spirituality element and the inverted reality elements. But that’s definitely a huge piece of this puzzle. Karen, oh, Karen Drew Barrymore. She got fired. Because she’s teaching the kids dangerous books. And you can’t have that in the future.
And Don, he goes back to therapy and she puts him under hypnosis this time. There’s no hand party. So she she lets them talk. And he says oh, by the way, Frank the body’s gonna kill everyone I was gonna die.
Unknown Speaker 39:22
I want to talk about your past today. I want to talk about you and your parents living by me what I want to Christmas What did you want for Christmas that year? Hungry Hungry Hippos. How did you feel being denied these Hungry Hungry Hippos regret what else makes you feel regret? That I did it again. You did it again. I find my school burner that perverts house. Only a few days before the catch me. Did Frank tell you to do these? obey him? He saved my life after being on or I’ll be left alone. And then and then I won’t be able to figure out what this is all about. OPM knows master plan. Do you mean God’s master plan? Do you now believe in God? I have a particle timesheet. How is that possible? How is time travel possible? Donnie up Fred said, when is this going to happen? What is going to happen? is gonna kill. Who is he going to kill? Who is he going to kill Donnie? Right now?
Unknown Speaker 41:50
If the sky were to suddenly open up, there would be no law. There would be no rule. That would only be you and your memories. The choices you’ve made. You’ve touched if this world there would only be you
Isaac Weishaupt 42:20
know, a therapist. She got a really weird response. Did you hear what she said to him? It’s like she’s coaching them along. She’s like, there would be no law. What are you talking about? You’re like, egging this kid on. It would just be you and him. She’s like grooming him a little bit. So anyway, so now October 29. Geez, Danny or Donny? He walks into the kitchen. And we see this large carved pumpkin head of Frank the bunny you gotta see this image. If you don’t see the other ones. You got to see this one got to get on the Instagram ad Isaac was up. Login in the show notes. Check it out. Frank. The bunny is on the table carved out of a pumpkin. What’s that all about? Is that a clue to this being a surreal film. None of its real. I don’t know. So Maggie, Gyllenhaal, the sister. She didn’t play a huge role in this film. But she was in an awful lot. She just didn’t show up a lot in the plot. She gets accepted into Harvard. They throw a big 80s party where people are actually dancing in the house. Cue the cool music. We got the oil Boingo and the Joy Division and all that. And then we see it. It’s now October 30 midnight hits and Danny’s world inverts. Yes, the film in the film technique shows this change of perception, this entrance into a new dimension the new reality. So we nushares in the New Age. And you see the camera do the full 180 degree in version. Again, you got to see the image on the Instagram and the inversion. This is the same as what we saw in midsummer. If you remember that the show the entrance to the new strange altered reality when the camera goes 180 degrees. And now Donnie, he sees this this gel stuff coming out of everyone’s chest everywhere coming out of his own chest. And he follows it and it takes him to the fridge. And what’s on the fridge clearly prominently placed. very obvious for the whole audience to see the owl. That’s right. The Minerva owl the symbol of the Gnostic wisdom, this symbol for the Illuminati, the symbol for the Bohemian Grove and I got that image on the Instagram too. Should you doubt so Donnie, he gets a crew together to go over to grandma deaths. How But then Seth Rogen and his bully friend are threatening them with knives or car come speeding up. Donnie says you know, Deuce Ex Machina, our Savior, meaning got out of the machine. Do sex mokena that’s how you pronounce that. Always get that wrong. Deuce x mokena. Our Savior. That’s what Donnie says. meaning there’s a savior coming in and that’s the car. But the car accidentally runs over Jana Malone. His girlfriend kills daddy’s girlfriend. So he’s saved on one level. But his girlfriend’s dead. So what good is that? The driver stops and gets out. And guess who it is? Guess who it is. Frank. Frank wearing the bunny costume. Only it’s not this like supernatural holy guardian angel version of Frank is just some bro dressed up as a bunny who drove recklessly and killed Donnie, his girlfriend. And now we see we see all the pieces starting to fit together like Well, what’s this all about them? So Donnie, he pulls a strap and pop out shoots Frank Ryan is all seeing I just like was foreshadowed earlier when he was stabbing at the mirror with the knife and stabbing it Frank’s all seeing eye. Now this is also what had the sensors all bugged out because it was too much like Columbine, even though what didn’t happen in a school. It was school students shooting each other gun violence. The only acceptable gun violence is anything but students at a high school apparently. So Donna’s girlfriend’s dead. Frank was just a bro in a bunny costume. Now he’s dead. Donald is trippin old Donald J. Darko is trippin. He’s up early in the morning, goes up to the mountaintops or he sees this black void opening up in the sky. And he’s driving around with his dead girlfriend. And he digs up to the top of the mountain. We start hearing about that time travel theory again.
And the only thing that he needs to complete the time travel according to the philosophy of time travel book is a metal vessel and a portal. Well, we see the portal opening up in the sky. And Danny’s mom just happens to be on a flight coming home. That’s the metal vessel the airplane. And we’re not really sure what happens like things get a little bit chaotic and weird. The plane looks like it’s hitting some major turbulence. Is it all connected? Well, during the sequence, we get a better look at daddy’s bedroom, and that all seeing eye painting in his room. turned out they had a bigger role than we thought they planted that seat at the beginning of the film and then they come back to it. you zoom in and you see a skull in the pupil. This is the free Masonic symbol for memento mori to always think about death. And boom, we’re back to October 2, time travel happened. The metal vessel happened, which was the airliner. Now we’re back in October 2 Donald’s in bed this time. He’s not passed out on his bike like we saw at the beginning of the film. Which you know what that means? The big airplane that disappeared from the skies that they could never find. They have no idea why the engine drops in the bedroom. Donny dies. Turns out he time traveled back in time to save his girlfriend’s life. So she could go on to star in the Hunger Games with Jennifer Lawrence. What a guy but everyone senses this shift in reality now this is very Mandela Effect like everyone kind of knows like, wait a minute, some feels like I’ve done this before. But at least in this new reality, the family’s crying because Danny’s dead. So I guess they finally like them. Except for rose mom. She’s known to the whole thing. For whatever reason, just smoking a cigarette like Oh boy. Here we go again. Now, what’s odd is that the flight, mom was on roses on the flight she was taken would have been the flight the jet engine came from, because she was in the metal vessel. And I would argue that it would it would kill her but that didn’t happen. We don’t really know. Which leads to the end of the film, which leads to countless theories about what this film was all about. Which leads you and I to the conclusion and I will tell you what I think this film is about. It’s a mix of the great reset The new normal the New World Order through alchemy brought about through ritualistic sacrifice to bring about the new age of spirituality, the Gnostic worldview. And this film and has a ton of different scenes meant to keep the audience sort of evaluating and re evaluating what’s going on. is Donnie going on this supernatural journey? Is he having a mental breakdown as schizophrenia? I mean, this is a very demanding film. And that’s one reason why it tanked in the box office but got this cult following after it was released. on home video. When smart people you and I watch it. refined, intelligent people like us watch it. Let’s talk about the great reset. We see the apocalypse triggered by a crashing airplane, just like 911. Just like the new normal, the events, the church that transformed the world are chemically because remember, Donnie tells the therapist that Frank wants him to follow him into the future because the world is coming to an end. The Apocalypse the revelation of the method. And you recall the film was shown at Sundance in January 2001, released in theaters October 2001. So the plane crash was still too wrong. This supposedly made the movie hard to sell to crowds. Why so long between January and October to release in theaters? Well, they couldn’t find distributors, because Donald was a high school student with mental illness shooting guns. And that was very close to the Columbine story. And your call some other predictive programming that I remember as a child watching programs Jeremy video back in 91. In that video, it showed a kid going into the classroom. And it appeared that he shot up the class because everyone’s like, covered in blood, but it was actually him getting up in front of the class of shooting himself. I remember that was a big to do when it was released. I remember even as a kid be like, that’s satanic. That’s scary.
That’s pretty young, but I remember it very clearly. And then what do you know, Columbine happened just a few years later. Very strange. 911 let’s talk about 911 a bit and I plan on doing I told you last year I was going to do a big Mega 911 show. I’m hoping I can make that happen for you still. I got a lot of homework to do on it still. I’ll put together something. I’ll see what I can do. I’ve got this lecture I’m doing in Salt Lake City. That’s consuming a lot of my time. I got to kind of get this thing done in September, maybe September 11 911. Very important. croley said 11 was the most recursive number. That’s why was the K added to magic. The 11th letter in the alphabet gematria. Right The Twilight language as above so below all these magic ideas which remember, Danny’s the younger sister Samantha said the prince was being led into a world of magic. That’s Donnie Darko. Fun fact, Maggie Gyllenhaal was in 2006 his world trade center film connecting another 911 reference. Now croley he’s part of this whole thing because remember Danny’s mother, her name was rose. Well, Alastair Crowley’s first Scarlet woman was named rose Kelly. She was the one who told him back in 1904 they all waiting for you. And they they they are she led him to the Cairo Museum in Egypt. And he followed her to exhibit number 6664 Horus which is what the jet engine look like it had a symbol for which is where Frank the money gets stabbed in is all seeing eye Mrs. The whole plot of the story and this new religion of the Lima that was Alastair Crowley’s religion based upon the notes dictated to him from a was his holy guardian angel. That’s his Frank the bunny, told him about the new religion of the New Age, the Lima and the New Age coming the Ayaan of Horus this religion Oh, and by the way, the statement of the Lima do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law. So 11 word commandment with 11 syllables, I believe, do what? Yeah, I’m sure. Do the math on that. Make sure I’m not leading you astray. Recall that Donnie said in the classroom destruction is a form of creation. And what do you think 911? Was? an alchemical principle, a ritual. destruction is a form of creation they need to create the new world order. Bring down the two towers to pull up the one single tower. This is the catalyst or tree of life to create the pillar of consciousness in between the two pillars. also curious is that Donnie floods the school could be symbolism of water and the Age of Aquarius if you want to go that route with it. But ultimately, we have to talk about the Gnostic spirituality that’s one of the religions of this new world that we’re going to be living in, I guess, a gnostic realm, which was part of the Last Temptation of Christ. That was why it was so blasphemous, had gnostic themes of Christ’s having relations with Mary Magdalene. And the whole storyline about his own whole holy guardian angel that tells him, Hey, you’re not the Messiah, you’re just the Son of God. I guess, doesn’t make you the Messiah. But that’s the Gnostic idea is like Jesus was, you know, he was a cool dude. He was just a spiritual messenger. He’s not really God, by the Christian faith. But he’s an orthodoxy. He’s like, no, Jesus Christ was God. Make no doubt about it. God the sun. But the Nazis want to downplay his role and just like no, he’s no different than the other spiritual messengers, which is, you know, diluting the idea of the power and the awesomeness of God, God the sun. And recall throughout the film, Donnie Darko, he says, You can’t choose between fear and love. Because in Gnosticism, you got to embrace the opposing forces, you have to accept all of the good and evil, you can’t know thyself and to know the shadow, the darkness. And recall Donnie saying the search for God is absurd, because you end up dying alone anyway. Recall Jim Cunningham, Patrick, aka Patrick Swayze, and how
there’s these Christian values without ever mentioning Christ’s name the whole time the whole movie. And Donnie grabbed the mic and called Swayze the Antichrist. Recall Donnie Darko arguing that if you stay in God’s channel, you have no free will. And the science teacher is kind of like, wink wink nudge nudge. I can’t talk about it. But good thinking, buddy. Recall the science teacher the next day telling Donnie invincible need darkness for their development. Because the infants are us. That’s us. You and I are just stupid babies that need to embrace the darkness to evolve. Recall Frank the bunny telling Donnie he’s wearing a stupid human suit. And we also of course see the sacrifice of Danny’s girlfriend. But then Donnie himself on Salween led by the Minerva owl that was on the fridge prior to his death. Just like the Bohemian groves, giant Allo sacrifice at the cremation of care ceremonies, and it happens at all It all happens go down on Halloween, one of two satanic holidays, or three, I guess there’s beltane Halloween or aka Salween, and then your birthday three satanic holidays. Era, a represents the passing into the new season, the new time from fall into winter. If you read the golden bow that talks about all these ancient cultures, and how much they love sacrificing people, you can read about how the Celts used to celebrate Halloween as the beginning of the new year. And that’s where they would light all the bonfires and there’s all these you know, references of human sacrifice to the gods because you always got to appease the gods for the crops or the rain or whatever you’re trying to get. But that Minerva owl on the fridge is this source of wisdom that Frank is bestowing to Donnie no different than a was the holy guardian angel for Alister Crowley did to him. And oh, by the way, recall that Minerva is the initiatory rank for the Illuminati secret society. And the owl was the symbol for that group. It’s all connected here. So just to just to sum it all up. Frank is the holy guardian angel, leading Donnie to his universal calling the gnosis of the Gnostic wisdom, so that he could usher in the New Age through sacrifice to the pagan gods. So there we go. That’s what I think the movie is all about. What do you think? And there’s a sequel s Darko. I remember seeing this like 10 years ago not good. Not good at all filmed in Utah by the way. There you go, Oh, that was a lot of information a lot going on and Donnie Darko. And again, one last time I will plead You, you, I’ll keep reading the reviews, the ratings, the feedback, wherever you, Apple’s kind of like the place I like to read them, but you can probably drop it anywhere. And I’ll I’ll find it. I’m going to read those up through. So holloween Why not right. So Halloween. And thank you for those that have already dropped the review. I appreciate it. That’s actually how you can help me out. Because it’ll keep the show fresh on the algorithms and show active users and listeners enjoying it and it’ll keep it to the top because, you know, I’ve been shadow banned and banned and censored so many times. It’s exhausting. So there you go. Leave a review. If you want to help the show. If you want to support the show, drop a five star. I’ll read them and until next time, you know what to do. Stay woke
