Movies Decoded [Part 16] (9) Gods and False Gods

< READ BEFOREREAD NEXT >

9) Gods and False Gods – The talk with the super monster God. In front of the protagonist holding the ripped off dead head of the fiercest super warrior (who was played by the only black actor in a Japanese film and he was also the first person to get killed) (note there is a subtle connection between the war against the sleepers and the awake; using the sleepers to fight against the awakened ones; the sleepers despises the awakened beings. And symbolically become the greatest super warriors against the awake) in its hand and holding its index figure out pointing to the protagonists’ forehead/3rd eye symbolic position and holds it in this position as if to say it is giving the protagonist a chance to have a change of heart or else he will be killed. In essence, the God wanted to find one person who truly believed in him by this gesture of sparing the protagonists’ life. This compassionate moment becomes the Gods downfall because it was so concerned about sparing the protagonist life that it neglected to pay attention the ensuing danger around him. This sympathetic gesture may have been intended to convert the protagonist from an enemy to an ally. However, the innate hatred of Gods wins out. When indeed the protagonist never trusts or believes in the Monster/God. He is only trying to find a way through the dialogue to spare his life…you can’t convert one’s nature…It is as it is…for instance a dog or an animal will always be so…(Dion fortunereference: says in chapter VII. The Pathology of Non-Human Contact “Non-Human is like a pet animal, not a fellow-creature. That, frankly, is the only possible ground upon which they can be approached. If we expect no more of them than we should a pet bird, if we manage them as we should manage a kitten, we have got as near to the solution of the problem as we are ever likely to get….”) no matter the constant training and affection will not steer them down the path to becoming human.

The Pathology of an Automaton

In view of the dialogue the protagonist drops his gun realizing it is a losing battle to fight and quickly says “Wait”…”Let me ask you” “Why are we…”Killing each other?”

The monster responds to his question indirectly.
Monster/God: Do you feel like your’re in God’s presence?

The protagonist: God?

Monster/God: God is the absolute power.

The protagonist: Your God?
scene pause
The protagonist: Are you? (responding as if the Monster/God is obligated to give him a response; projected superiority interjection)

The monster/God: This world has many (Gods). I’m merely one of them. There is no defying that fact?

Remember throughout the whole dialogue the monsters finger is still against the protagonist forehead/3rd eye symbolic position.

However immediately after the monster speaks the last line the ditsy lady warrior (whom just pledged her romantic commitment to the protagonist)

blast the arm of the monster that was pointing at the forehead of the protagonist, therefore dismantling/evaporating the monsters ideology before it sets in/transmits solidification in the viewers mind. She has claimed the protagonist, not the monster. She will fight tooth and nail to defend that honor. The monster says “I see” meaning that it understands that monsters (Gods) should not trust people. And proceeds to shoot laser beams out of its eye (ode to Superman eye beams) and tries to destroy the city and the remaining warriors.
