THE DaFishy Code

You do not have to have seen the movie in order to understand this post.
You just need to know MOI, and my chaotic way of thinking.

Note: NO THIS IS NOT SOME ARTICLE THAT IS SUPPORTING THOSE THAT ARE BOYCOTTING THE MOVIE, NOR IS IT SOME SPECIAL EFFORT TO CONVINCE ATHEIST OR NON-ATHEIST INTO A CERTAIN POV, OR ANYOTHER MANIPULATIVE EFFORT. THIS SIMPLY IS A BYSTANDERS POV, NOT ONLY ON THE MOVIE BUT ON LIFE IN GENERAL.

Thank you,
LOJ

I just watched the all hyped up movie the DaVinci Code, and many thoughts came to mind not only re: the movie.
and it's logistical if not manipulative ways of viewing how Jesus might have lived his life.
But also, general philosophical and psychological ways that we as humans can just about justify, deny, revise, or worship anything in life, including animate and inanimate objects.
The main areas that I will focus on today are:
1. Manipulation to control or convince others.
2. Manipulation for profit.
3. Self-Manipulation in order to tolerate
our time here on earth.

The below will deal with number one, two and three, since all three are used simultaneously but Doc says that I stray off toooo much so I decided to try to keep a type of organization manner…but I doubt it's going to work…since I am still after all….LORI


There are so many ways of looking at this movie that one could become mentally exhausted or imbalanced or even unbalanced just trying to figure into or figure out the clues that are at hand.
And then there are clues inside the clues that are not even revealed or touched on if they weren't part of the theme that was necessary to sell this film to the public.
The pre-requisites to selling any film or tickets to any event for that matter MUST INCLUDE:
· Possibilities of violence or death
· Aggression, sarcastic humor
· Secrets, lies or truths that are later revealed as lies.

The above cases in point would be why scary movies, nascar, and IPC are so popular \:D/


My rule of thumb when it comes to anything in life is to: ALWAYS TRUST Paradox's.
If something seems complicated then it's usually simplistic, if someone is touted as being a great person or very reputable person then usually they are just like any other ordinary Joe Blow, and usually the ordinary Joe Blows of society are the extraordinary people we just can't see or hear them.

The reason we don't see things in the realm as I've described above is because we DON'T CHOOSE TO SEE THEM LIKE THAT. Thus the adage; …"you'd miss it if it was right in front of your face".
The movie goes way overboard into finding clues that might or might not have been there. But the case in point simplistically said;
WE COULD HAVE USED ANYTHING IN THE WORLD THAT PEOPLE WOULD BE FAMILIAR WITH IN ORDER TO MAKE THIS MOVIE, NOT JUST DAVINCI AND THESE SECRET WRITINGS.

Secret writings apparently decoded more clues which in the end decoded more things that which eventually after 2 hours and a half someone finally arrived at a hypothetical theory: that Jesus had fathered a child with Mary Magdalene. I personally am a Mary Magdalene fan, and her feast day is on my birthdayJ Go FIGURE…that one is for DOC.

What I'm trying to say that since the beginning of time people have manipulated one another as a daily function in life. Like eating or drinking. Manipulation isn't just some "bad" or "sneaky underhanded" way of trying to exploit or abuse others…..It really all boils down to our one BASIC INSTINCT. And how well you use it will determine your role or lack of role in life….I have never liked saying the word MANIPULATION, so I say, "USING MY RESOURCES".
Some people will say that the proper word is "TRAINING", or "DIRECTING"….no a spade is a spade….it is
MANIPULATION.

Manipulation simply means: convincing others by control or behaviors to present outcomes favorable to the individual carrying out the manipulation. NOW THE OUTCOMES ARE NOT DEFINED AS BAD OR GOOD, but just OUTCOMES, the favorable means to the liking of the individual.


It all started out for us as children when retailing chains like "GERBER" invented bottles to resemble our mothers breast, so we could wean children off their bottles…although some children NEVER DID GET WEANED….LOOK AT DOC….he not only didn't get weaned but he has since TRANSFERRED his pseudo-weaning onto other women….GOD HELP THEM :-?

And our mothers would manipulate us while growing up, by yelling at us consistently to deter us from doing things that they did not like us do. They would promise us allowances, or new toys for things that they wanted us to accomplish.
I use the word mothers…because my overall belief is that no matter how you slice it…WOMEN ARE OVERALL THE BEST MANIPULATORS.

As adults, we go full circle and continue doing the above with our children. Then we move on to spouses who we manipulate if not on a daily basis but rather hourly :badgrin: .

We manipulate animals for behaviors that please us, then once the animal is secure within our environment they turn the table around and usually end up manipulating us WAYYYY MORE THAN WE DID THEM.

Human behavior and the whole epitome of life is or should be MANIPULATION.

We just can not say this since it sounds way too TABOO, or socially unacceptable to admit that you are spending your life manipulating people, instead we invent new words that do not have the negativity attached to it such as: Enlightening, Teaching, Training…blah, blah, blah.
Webster would have been a much poorer man if we humans could have learned to keep life simplistic. There would be far fewer words in the dictionary and he might have had time to do some "smelling the roses".

Getting back to the movie…it goes on and on to make this MYSTERY OF LIFE OR MYSTERY OF RELIGION OR JESUS OR WHATEVER so damned COMPLICATED.
Correct me if I am wrong…but aren't we the supposed to be the most EVOLVED HUMANS on earth today…i.e. 2006.
And if that is the case why are we trying to figure out history and apply more complexities to it than what truly needs to be. Or better yet since we are so much more EVOLVED why haven't things like this been solved already?

Simple we don't want to solve the mystery....if we do then what fun would it be? We wouldn't have any more life goals to accomplish, or we wouldn't have any mystical enigma that mentally challenges us into questions that present stimulating conversatins at Christmas office parties.
And we have to have hope that there is something out there far greater than us, and until we arrive at it, we need other means to control our focus and mindsets on.
The possibility of "all of this" being some chaotic frenzy (life)that we accidentally arrived at, is not acceptable!

HUMANS NEED TO LIVE VICARIOUSLY THROUGH OTHER AVENUES.
We as a whole are insecure, greedy, and lazy.
That is why the movie industry is a multi billion dollar business.
Humans statistically have their daily routines such as:
· Go to work
· Get married
· Have kids
· Retire

Now how boring does this sound……TOTALLY!!!! At least to me.
I usually refer to the above activities as things that we do just to TOLERATE OUR TIME HERE ON EARTH…since there is absolutely nothing I deem as some ultimate GREAT GOAL out there waiting for me to achieve. I do not consider this earth as some mentally stimulating place to carry out my life's fruition.
It is merely a holding tank for what I will evolve to after this…but we won't get to that now….that would be another mini-series for me to write, and I'm already having trouble doing this one.

That is why action films or horror films are so big, people watch this and vicariously get out their built up frustration of not being able to do these things for real…and these films cause our serotonin and endorphins to rise and interact within our body in ways that normally don't happen on a typically normal routine day. These activities give individuals their "LEGAL" acid trips...if you will.

So the movie taps into one emotion (religion) that internationally riles up billions and it knew it would, since anything causing controversy will no doubt make $$$.
Yet it delves into a theory as I said could be derived from just about anything from the Nursery Rhyme Humpty Dumpty to the song "Cat Scratch Fever".
It uses many anagrams to create or help solve other clues and then others….yet it didn't even touch on the obvious ones…they used Sir Isaac Newton to solve some riddle regarding some password which resulted in the word APPLE….
Yet they totally forgot to mention that SIN is an acronym formed on the name of Sir Isaac Newton. Which could have started a whole new storyline to the movie thus creating more $$$ and more run time too...UGH ](*,) .
The only reason it focused on the subject DaVinci, since he is internationally known as well as his painting The Last Supper.

As a facetious example, let us explore the Nursery Rhyme Humpty Dumpty.

Ok use your imagination here…because that is what you have to do in the DaVinci Code……
Lets say Humpty Dumpty is actually a figurative way of speaking about Jesus Christ…..lets say humpty is Christ, and way back when Christ really wasn't crucified but in all reality he fell off a wall somewhere in Babylon or ChinaJ, and despite all the efforts to put CHRIST BACK TOGETHER (that is keeping him alive) failed and he died…..

OR WE COULD GO USE the rhyme metaphorically, and when we talk about humpty dumpty sitting on a wall, we could really mean that it is Christ and the wall is the reputation he has built for Christianity, and the fall he took was the defaming of Christianity and the "inability to put humpty dumpty together again" could mean that Christ could not rebuild his reputation back up…..
I personally don't believe in religion since I believe it is another form of prejudice…but I do believe in something….since the mere fact that we are ABLE TO QUESTION OUR EXISTENCE should tell us there is something more!
Yes the movie was more in depth and went to greater lengths to prove a theory, but then again, I don't have Spielberg's money….
In wrapping up I think that I did stay somewhat focused and organized in writing this, but you see that is where self-manipulation comes in….I can convince myself into believing this since I want to believe….the real question is WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BELIEVE? And more importantly WHAT DON'T YOU WANT TO ADMIT TO BELIEVING…this after all will determine who you are, what you stand for, and how you can control your life…..cuz after all…..
LIFE IS ONE BIG MANIPULATION.
Good Day and Good LuckJ

Still true three years later:)
While Terrorism is a war that starts developing within the mind,
Religion is a war that antagonizes our conscience, but
Love is a war within the heart.....
