Joss Whedon’s follow-up to The Avengers, Avengers: Age of Ultron, is setting new box office records for Marvel, and has roughly the same degree of critical response as the first. A few days ago, I analyzed the first in anticipation for the follow-up that premiered in the U.S. this weekend, noting the A.I. takeover plot, and the sequel was even more esoterically themed and blatant in its presentation. Hollywood is making it difficult for me not to write the same A.I. analysis over and over, but some new ground is tread here to investigate in the midst of the same pattern we’ve been witnessing of late, the extinction of man through mass depopulation and his subjugation and/or replacement with an A.I. control grid.
In Age of Utron, the Avengers team discovers genetic experimentation is still ongoing at a secret Hydra facility in Eastern Europe. Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson) explicitly references the U.S. and Nazi experimentation on humans and their importation into Allied nations following the War. Recalling part one and Captain America: Winter Soldier, we are reminded that Hydra is the secret cabal that is running S.H.I.E.L.D. and NATO, much like the Bilderberg Group in our world. Comprised of former S.S. like Prince Bernhard and corporate executives like Peter Thiel who openly advocates for transhumanism and mass micro-chipping, the fictional presentation of Hydra is spot on.
As a result of the human experimentation and genetic manipulation, Hydra has produced two new genetically-modified villains, the Twins, one of which is a babe with mind control abilities and some kind of explosive red glitz, and her brother, a Slavic Flash named Pietro. Using her mind control techniques (as a product of mind control herself), Wanda Maximoff implants visions of the team’s darkest fears into each Avenger with the intention of dividing our heroes. It is worth noting that Eastern Europe is actually the locale of numerous CIA “black sites” and mind control operations, dating back to World War II and through the Cold War. See my audio summary here for more information on this:
The MKULTRA/mind control is a common staple of Whedon’s science fiction works, from River Tam in Firefly to Hawkeye in Avengers and now Natasha Romanoff, too. Romanoff we learn was an orphaned girl who was raised in Soviet Russia in a secret program to create programmed assassins out of young girls. In the deep research I’ve done on various mind control programs over the last century, all of these elements are very real, with both Allied and Axis powers engaging in programs of a similar nature. While it may seem unconnected, there is in fact a crucial link between A.I. research and the classic mind control programs, as MKULTRA morphed into MKSEARCH, which dealt with implantable chips and electronic control of motor functions.
In terms of exotic weaponry, we learn that Loki’s spear is an advanced form of alien computer technology that overtakes Stark’s J.A.R.V.I.S. A.I. program to expand into the world-wide web. Stark’s plan to create a global space-based A.I. defense mechanism brings to mind the Star Wars Defense Initiative, SDI, which is what the real-world Skynet that is being erected originates in. I wrote some years back:
“[B]ased on this kind of meaningful, ordered world, you can construct a model virtual world. The Pentagon and DARPA have known this for decades, and it was DARPA from which the web arose. What is fascinating about this is that the Terminator concept of Skynet is based on the Pentagon plan for a fully integrated satellite/net system, which then interlocks all these, including chipped, tracked and traced humans, as the 1997 Army War College report declassified. That report is showing you Skynet, with its interlocking control grid, and on top of that there were plans using virtual reality and tanks, that would then also be interlocked with the Skynet grid. So you basically have a combination of the Terminator, Total Recall and the Matrix.”
Morphing into a newly-sentient entity, Ultron perfectly mirrors the NSA’s infamous PROMIS backdoor technology, which is reportedly able to be a ubiquitous electronic skeleton key. Wired Magazine’s archive has an informative article on PROMIS that explains:
“Imagine you are in charge of the legal arm of the most powerful government on the face of the globe, but your internal information systems are mired in the archaic technology of the 1960s. There’s a Department of Justice database, a CIA database, an Attorney’s General database, an IRS database, and so on, but none of them can share information. That makes tracking multiple offenders pretty darn difficult, and building cases against them a long and bureaucratic task….
But the real power of PROMIS, according to Hamilton, is that with a staggering 570,000 lines of computer code, PROMIS can integrate innumerable databases without requiring any reprogramming. In essence, PROMIS can turn blind data into information. And anyone in government will tell you that information, when wielded with finesse, begets power. Converted to use by intelligence agencies, as has been alleged in interviews by ex-CIA and Israeli Mossad agents, PROMIS can be a powerful tracking device capable of monitoring intelligence operations, agents and targets, instead of legal cases.”
The above is decades-old technology, and one can only imagine the advance that has been made in this type of data-collating and backdoor technology that is more in line with the revelations of NSA whistleblower, William Binney. Binney was involved in the programming of the NSA’s mass surveillance capabilities, and while none of this software is “sentient,” the real meaning of Ultron is precisely the capabilities of these shadow government agencies to record and track everyone. The exotic weaponry and “alien tech” in the Avengers series is thus a fictional representation of the real powers of the shadow military industrial complex, which is determined to implement mass dysgenics operations that perfectly mirror Ultron’s desires to destroy humanity and replace it with a synthetic, transhumanist/Frankenstein concoction.
Speaking of Frankenstein, Age of Ultron had some interesting Weird Science moments that echo Mary Shelley’s alchemical novel, with both the accidental creation of Ultron and his twin, Paul Bettany as the deus ex machina “I AM” (The Vision). The golem, based on the idea of Jewish kabbalism that the Names of God (and in particular I AM) have the ability to create life, is a prominent theme, and even more so than in Ex Machina, with mad scientists Stark and Banner utilizing the latest in nanotech tissue replacement to construct a new, regenerative body for Vision, and his third eye infinity stone. Sometime JaysAnalysis contributor Peter Parker perceptively remarked in relation to Weird Science what is equally applicable here:
“Prometheus, the Titan of Greek myth, who caused a rift between humanity and the gods, by giving Man the gift of fire, was subsequently punished by Zeus by being cast from Olympus and bound to the Caucus mountains, where he was tormented by an eagle who devoured, daily, his eternally regenerating liver. This puts the Titan in a long line of mythical figures that are, for Christians, varied retellings of the Fall of Lucifer (other examples include the Norse Loki, the Egyptian Apep and the Chinese Gong Gong).
In a Christian interpretive frame work, Man’s idyllic interaction with the gods represents Adam & Eve’s prelapsarian state in Eden, Prometheus represents Lucifer (a name which itself means Light Bearer) & his gift of fire represents the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge. Since, in the Prometheus myth, man uses fire to cheat the gods of their rightful sacrificial offering (by giving a burnt offering of fat instead of meat) the god’s punish Man by creating the first woman Pandora, who herself, is tricked into opening a jar containing all the worlds ills. This final piece of the story (for Christians anyway) represents, Eve’s convincing Adam to eat the fruit and the subsequent entry of Death and Sin into the world.
Christian theology is important for Age of Ultron due to Ultron’s consistent references to biblical and historic imagery. Situating his new base inside the symbolic ruins old Orthodox Church, Ultron speaks of himself as the new God of the new aeon, the new resurrection, etc. The “new man” is the perfected form of man, linked to the global brain with the regenerative powers of medical nanotechnology. In the same way that Marxism turned Hegelianism on its head, so transhumanism turns Christian theology on its head, locating all the “myths” of Christian theology on the plane of our existence. Christian theology holds that the Body of Christ is mystically one with the Church, and this union will result in a resurrection of the body to a new state of being, unbounded by death and the “puppet strings” of time and space, as Ultron sings citing Pinocchio (see my analysis of Speilberg’s A.I.).
In order to understand this, my analysis of the first film explained of aether physics and exotic weaponry:
The opening sequence of the film features a tesseract, or hypercube, which is the geometrical structure of the dimension above our own, four-dimensional space. Amongst physicists and mathematicians, the hypercube is not merely a fantasy, but rather a known reality that extends beyond our own field of perception. I have delved into this in the past, with articles on crystallography and Pythagoreanism, as well as in relation to the Quadrivium method of classical learning that utilized the platonic solids and as the fundamental architecture of reality.
In relation to classical metaphysics from ancient Greece and Egypt, the association of the fifth element after fire, water, earth and air, is aether, or quintessence. It is not accidental that following the opening hypercube sequence, we see Nick Fury engaged in secret work under NASA at a “dark energy” project in an underground base. Seemingly far-fetched, there are actual deep state black programs that revolve around plasma weaponry, particularly with H.A.A.R.P., which the Navy has boasted about here. In classical Greek thought, not only are there five elements, but matter also passes in and out of four states: solid, liquid, gas and plasma.
Fans of Tesla will recognize the similarity between the exotic weaponry Loki steals from Fury in the film, and the aether-based plasma physics Tesla utilized to work towards the potential for unlimited free energy, known as zero point energy, borrowed from the environment itself, as well as in quantum physics, according to Paul Dirac, energy from the future. It is interesting to note as well that under the cover of the “dark energy” name, the actual physics Fury and the military industrial complex are working with is plasma and aether-based, and not standard fare Newtonian atomism. It is precisely from this alternate Tesla physics that hints and clues consistently leak, even in mainstream science and film, as to the real hidden metaphysics the establishment’s superweapons are based on. For example, in a 1937 Columbia lecture Tesla emphatically proclaimed:
“Only the existence of a field of force can account for the motions of the bodies as observed, and its assumption dispenses with space curvature. All literature on this subject is futile and destined to oblivion. So are all attempts to explain the workings of the universe without recognizing the existence of the aether and the indispensable function it plays in the phenomena.”
It is therefore surprising to see Age of Ultron, like ex Machina, explain the deeper secret tech and transhumanist truths that the human body is not something to be discarded, but to be perfected. For the pop mind, the body in transhumanism is seen to be a gnostic impairment, yet for the hermetic tradition upon which transhumanism is based, the body is actually a highly efficient tool. Deeper, alchemical and hermetic transhumanism does not want to discard the body, but in a very similar form to Christian theology, wants to revitalize it, making it immortal. The new man, the aeon, in this perspective, are the fulfillment of the mythos of Christianity. The film might aptly be titled Aeon of Ultra, where completely new forms of being arise (like Ultron or Vision):
“…the crowned and conquering child, who dieth not, nor is reborn, but goeth radiant ever upon His Way. Even so goeth the Sun: for as it is now known that night is but the shadow of the Earth, so Death is but the shadow of the Body, that veileth his Light from its bearer.” -Aleister Crowley, Heart of the Master
The secret behind this idea is a doctrine common to both Christian theology and hermeticism, known as the anthropic principle. For theologians such as Maximos the Confessor, as well as for Plato and ancient Egyptian theology, the body of man is a microcosmic analogue of the entire universe. There is a real correspondence between the body man, and the entire universe itself, the anthropocosm. For example, Plato’s Timaeus describes the universe as a body, as does Maximos. Also known as the microcosm/macrocosm principle, the Temples of Egypt and the ancient Jewish Temple both embed a deep, esoteric principle relating to cosmogony. See this entire documentary below.
What we see in the overall plot is this: ancient and “alien” civilizations encode mathematical secrets of nature itself, which is true, despite the numerous nonsensical sites and articles that promote “ancient aliens.” There are no aliens, but what is true is that the mathematical and Egyptian/Pythagorean principles are the secrets of nature, and that is the significance of the exotic crystal mythology in the Avengers. There is a lot to unpack and categorize with all this mythical scepter/infinity stone alien technology, but suffice to say the crux is this: The real world elite are obsessed with acquiring secret, advanced technology based around an alternative platonic metaphysic, symbolized in fictional form by all these comic narratives. The film’s reference to “peace in our time” is a citation of both Disraeli, Neville Chamberlain and JFK’s reference to the Anglo-American world order’s plans for the new age. The real plan, however, is for the new aeon of the new man, the perfected man of transhumanism regenerated through Frankenstein techno-alchemy.
