John Carter Symbolism and David Icke
I watched the trailer to the new Disney film, John Carter and noticed that it takes place on an alien planet, features reptilian looking aliens, and the aliens have blue blood. This piqued my interest so I looked up the film’s plot line and saw that it was based on a series of books written in the early 1900’s called the Barsoom novels.
The plot is fairly extensive, but what I want to point out is that there are various alien/reptilian races and the planet they inhabit is in a state of war. This planet is Mars and the inspiration the author (Edgar Rice Burroughs) had was from a belief of life on Mars due to water canals they thought they could see back then. The hero of the film, John Carter, uses astral projection to get to Mars in order to fight the aliens and rescue a martian female of some sort.
Since I’m fairly ignorant to the story beyond what I can read online, I’ll just go into the comparisons that I can see to Icke’s beliefs and we’ll see if we can pick them apart or if others can elaborate:
The story has aspects of religious deception used to control the subjugates and manipulate them. This is one of Icke’s main tenets. He even believes that New Age is an established religion used to grab the few that escape the big three- Christiantiy, Islam, Judaism.
Icke says that reptilian/alien blood is blue due to the high levels of copper and its oxidation when exposed to air.
Icke also believes that there are several types of reptilians-good, bad, etc., depending upon which star system they come from. He believes the Draco star systems has the most evil of aliens. These aliens are referred to as Nommo in Zulu legend. This idea of multiple bloodlines of reptilian aliens could be represented in this movie with the different colors of Martians and their different traits.
The storyline features many technological acheivements, some even unheard of at the time of the books’ writings. This includes GPS type directional compass, aircraft battles,fax machines, televisions, and the ability to genetically manipulate. Ancient alien theorists believe that aliens gave human beings various technologies in order to ‘nudge’ us along.
Icke and ancient alien theorists believe that our human body has been manipulated genetically for one reason or another. Icke thinks it was done nefariously in order to filter out other frequencies that prevent us from accessing our full potential. The aliens want to lock us into the 5-state reality, all that we can feel through our senses, so that we can be manipulated into states of fear and stress.
I’ve read that Edgar Rice Burroughs held an interest in Planet X; the planet that ancient aliens theorists and Icke believe the Annunaki alien race came from. This Planet X a.k.a. Nibiru is supposed to be en route to be at its closest orbit to us at the exact moment of December 21st, 2012, the date the Mayan calendar clicks over its largest cycle.
Of course, science has refuted ideas by stating that Planet X doesn’t exist, and that Mars doesn’t have these water canals as once was believed. But then again, science used to believe that the Sun revolved around the Earth and that you could cure people of disease by bleeding them out. But the point is, perhaps Icke and Burroughs have both tapped into some esoteric knowledge and there could be some truth behind the Mars theory. They’ve got plenty of ancient cultures behind them. Mars was a war god in various cultures; the Greek god Ares, Roman god of war, Babylonian war god Nergal, etc.
One more point to try and emphasize some sort of symbolical importance to all of this; the Roman calendar had March as their first month of the year, but they used the word Martius, which is Latin for Mars. They celebrated the month of Mars with festivals held in honor the war god. Many Roman festivals have been held true to this day, simply transformed in ways to relate to Christianity. There must be some importance to these events in order for the traditions to stay alive. And what month is this film being released? March. Perhaps it’s coincidental, perhaps not. Disney has had a history of conspiracy theory behind them so maybe this one is slightly more elaborate.
