Body Jumping & the Avatars Experience
This was a huge part in the messages of this movie though im guessing allot of people didnt pay much attention to it. The whole concept looked at the idea that we are not just our physical bodies and that consciousness could be transfered from body to body almost like reincarnation. The term Avatar is used in Hindu for when a God incarnates on Earth and has more recently become a term for someone's digital persona online or personal computer game character.
I liked how when the Navi Avatar body was asleep the consciousness would return to the human body and awaken in the chamber. Some say that when Starseeds are sleeping they can visit home ethericly or that they download all the information they have learned back to their home worlds. The other thing it reminded me of was the Walk-in experience, where a soul exchanges places with that of someone on a planet. There is even whats known as a Stasis Walk-in which is where a being from another star system goes into a sleep chamber and transfers their consciousness to a body on Earth.
The whole Avatar process made the main character question what was the 'real world', kind of like the message of the movie The Matrix. To further enhance this we were treated to it being in 3D, for those who have experienced a lucid dream you will know how similar it was. The viewer was invited to enter another world themselves.
DNA Mixing Messages
From the opening scenes it was explained that the biological avatars could only hold a persons consciousness if they had some of the DNA of the person. Scientists used a portion of a persons DNA and mixed it with that of the Navi, this seemed to be most apparent in the facial features of the avatars. This is an interesting concept to me because ive always thought there was some kind of DNA link between a persons soul and the body. From the concept of Starseeds, there has been much said about how a being from another planet incarnating into an Earth body which was suitable. This could be due to the ancestral line of the body which must contain some DNA from the same off world race which mixed with humans in the ancient past or the belief that Starseeds have one ET parent. Either way the spiritual DNA imprints or stamps the human DNA which is why some Starseeds have particular features such as big eyes for example.
Pandora's is not a planet!
Not much was said about Pandora's location but if you were paying attention to the space scenes and sky during the movie you would have noticed something quite unusual. Pandora is not a planet... Its a Moon. Pandora orbits a giant gas planet not a star, the planet looks very much like Jupiter complete with an eye like storm and multiple moons. The other possiblity is that this is a Brown Dwarf which gives off enough heat to support life on orbiting moons even when far away from their local sun.
Our scientists currently think there is a possibility one of the moons of Jupiter which is covered in ice could harbor aquatic life. In the past year astronomers keep finding gas giant planets like Jupiter and Saturn around other stars. Why were we shown this tropical moon called Pandora, are we being prepared for such a discovery in the future?
The Na'vi - A Feline Race & Culture
These beings are very tall and exhibit feline ears, eyes, stripes, agility and have a tail. It was obvious from the first images that the Navi were based on feline ETs which is not something you see very often in sci-fi movies. The Feline beings have been documented in some channeling material by several authors and are believed to be a positive species which may have visited Earth in the distant past (Egypt). The felines also known as the Paschats and the Lion People are said to be very tall feline humanoids, master geneticists, spiritual, very proud and deeply emotional species. Others have said they are very communal species which deep respects their ancient ancestors. It seems like the movie was introducing people to the felines to me. I also nearly choked when I heard the theme song for Avatar is sung by Leona Lewis, not only does Leona mean Lion like or Lioness, notice how her features are very feline and how much she even looks like the Navi. I think a gentle soul like Leona could possibly be a Starseed of feline origins.
The blue Felines of the Navi are a race and culture which were intimately connected with nature and the feminine consciousness of their home world. They lived in harmony with their environment and had respect for all other life forms and plants they shared it with. They lived in a tribal community much like Earths indigenous people and had respect for their ancestors (sound familiar?). They had no need for advanced technology, conquering worlds or building endless shopping malls.
The Native American influence of the Navi culture and the story on one level can symbolize the Native Americans and the early settlers but I think it goes even deeper. It really made you think about what the so called civilized nations of Earth think they are doing. Why are we so disconnected from nature, the people we live near and our natural intuition? Why do our governments have a bloody history of attempts to 'civilize', wipe out, displace or convert just about every type of indigenous people on our planet?
Pandoras Eco System
The landcape just blew me away, partly because it just looked so real and convincing. The plants and trees all looked like they belonged together. The fluorescent nature of some plants, species and the spots on the Navis faces all seemed like perfectly possible biological traits, even slightly familiar. More often we are shown barren, dry desert type planets. I think our view of life on other planets (and moons!) is quite limited, looks like biological diversity can be found in the darkest, dryest, coldest, hotest, highest, wettest ares of our small planet, so why not anywhere else? Many starseeds remember forested planets, waterfalls and lush plant life.
I liked for once that the most reptilian looking creatures were not just categorized as evil like most sci-fi movies. These beings were a cross between bit like dragons and birds and dinosaurs. Jelaila Starr in her books talks about how when a species is still evolving on a planet Carians (bird like ET beings) would protect them from other races who were more 'technologically advanced' from interfering.
The Ore - Unobtainium
The mineral the humans were looking for was called Unobtainium which is obviously a play on the word unobtainable. On one level this scenario of looking to mine other planets for precious metals, ores or minerals does seem to represent the lengths we go to to get oil, gold and diamonds. Is it just a coincidence that the most troubled parts of the world just happen to be rich in minerals? What lengths would we as a race go to in the future to get what we want for our ever expanding and technology reliant civilizations?
On an extraterrestial level there seemed to be even more going on here. The Anunnaki and the Nephilim have been translated as various things including "those that came down from the sky" many believe they visited Earth for our Gold deposits thousands of years ago. The Navi refered to the humans as 'Sky people'.
Interconnected Energy & Gaia Theory
The Navi talked of people returning to the spirit of the planet on death, showing how all is connected and energy cannot be destroyed, it can only change form as our own Earth scientists tell us. Also I felt that the tree of souls was an interesting concept which could be symbolic of the tree of life or the soul group/family and aspects of the oversoul. The Navi's whole spiritual tradition was based on this idea and that the moon they lived on was a living entity and that all creatures, planets and im guessing rocks were conscious beings part of a greater whole just like Gaia theory. We were told that the root system of Pandora was interconnected and the Navi themselves would plug in with their tails to trees and other beings. Information was downloaded and uploaded like a spiritual internet.
Again if your drawn to spirituality you will be very familiar with these ideas and there is a feeling a knowing that these things are true and even more so in other dimensions and worlds beyond our solar system. Essentially this raises questions of how we treat other species and Earths eco system and in the climax of the film the creatures of Pandora recieving their distress signal through the forest network had to defend their world. Some say nature is already shaking off its biggest threat right now, the human race.
"We will fight terror with terror" was a quote that made me chuckle. Again you could see the movie as the invasion of the middle East but again there are other ways to look at this. Although there was distrust between both the humans and the Navi it was the humans which were portrayed as the aggressive, materialistic and ignorant group. For once the humans were not the goodies and the aliens were not trying to invade our planet or eat our brains... There are many people who seem to think us humans are perfect and that we should fear anything which originates outside Earth. There is allot of blaming and demonizing going on at the moment and I just think we should look at ourselves and ask is it really our right to judge how terrible other beings are when we are no model society with an even worse track record. I liked how the main human characters sided with the Navi and were prepared to say the destruction of their world was wrong.
The Lyra Vega connection
I could not help but notice the similarities between the channeled works of Lyssa Royal and Jeliala Starr. Lyssa Royal tells us of how human life began in the star system of Lyra. A planet orbiting the star of Vega which she only refers to as 'the Apex Planet' developed into a group of humans who were very spiritual, in touch with their planet and were similar to a Native American culture... This world was later the centre of a huge war with another group from within Lyra which had become more masculine oriented and technologically advanced rather than spiritual, invaded and the planet was destroyed.
Jelaila Starr calls this planet Avyon, she says this planet was lush and green with lots of water. The original beings here were felines (yes) and much later the people here were still spiritual, living in a more feminine bases society, worshiped their ancestors but perhaps were overly trusting of outsiders. The more reptilian humanoids who first landed here were seen as Gods and were in fact just scientists and biologists... Due to the later influence of their world leaders the visitors declared war on the natives and those of their own species who sided with them when they couldnt gain full control and Avyon was destroyed in a massive galactic war. Could this ancient event be playing out in our stories, legends, lives and now movies?
Avatar was very emotional and although it didnt end on a bad note it did leave me feeling quite down afterwards. I heard people have been suffering from depression after watching the film there is certainly a feeling that things are not quite right here. I think the film will leave a huge impact on the psyche and mass consciousness. There will be allot of awakenings and many people will realise they came from somewhere else. It asks the question what are the human race becoming and what will become of our homeworld? I believe ultimately we are supposed to be a Land Guardian race certainly if we wish to keep this place.
