    Zero Point: The story of Mark McCandlish - The Fluxliner

    Military-aeronautical Illustrator Mark McCandlish was riding the wave of success making images of classified projects for the military-industrial complex. Then he made a drawing of a top secret project that he wasn't supposed to know about. And big trouble ensued. For those who want a story of intrigue, secrets, and technology. Detailed information on the history, physics and technological mechanisms regarding faster-than-light travel, antigravity, and zero-point energy is also covered in detail.

    On the balance of probabilities the USA has antigrav tech and if you're aware of J P Farrell and the Nazi-bell experiments you can see how the fluxliner tech was developed from the principles of the Nazi Tech.

    Snowpiercer - (non-US version - theartre release was cut to pieces to make it a action movie with no plot)

    Brilliant, gnostic, multi-layered reflection of society.

    Set in 2031, the entire world is frozen except for those aboard the Snowpiercer. For 17 years, the world's survivors are on a train hurtling around the globe creating their own economy and class system. Led by Curtis, a group of lower-class citizens living in squalor at the back of the train are determined to get to the front of the train and spread the wealth around. Each section of the train holds new surprises for the group who have to battle their way through. A revolution is underway.

    Wiki
    Snowpiercer (Hangul: 설국열차; Hanja: 雪國列車; RR: Seolgugnyeolcha) is a 2013 English-language South Korean-Czech science fiction action film based on the French graphic novel Le Transperceneige by Jacques Lob, Benjamin Legrand and Jean-Marc Rochette.[4] The film is directed by Bong Joon-ho,[5][6] and written by Bong and Kelly Masterson. The film marks Bong's English-language debut; approximately 80% of the film was shot in English.[7][8]

    The film stars Chris Evans, Song Kang-ho, Tilda Swinton, Jamie Bell, Octavia Spencer, Go Ah-sung, John Hurt, and Ed Harris. The movie takes place aboard the globe-spanning Snowpiercer train which holds the last remnants of humanity after an attempt at climate engineering in order to stop global warming has unintentionally created a new Snowball Earth. Evans stars as Curtis Everett, a member of the lower-class tail section passengers as they lead a revolution against the elite of the front of the train. Filming was done on train car sets mounted on gimbals at Barrandov Studios in Prague to simulate the motion of the train.

    Snowpiercer received critical acclaim, and appeared on many film critics' top ten film lists of 2014 following its international release. Praise was primarily directed towards its vision, direction, and performances, particularly Evans's and Swinton's. Initially planned for a limited-screen showing in the United States, the critical response to the film prompted The Weinstein Company to expand the showing to more theaters and through digital streaming services. Produced at a budget of $40 million, it remains as the most expensive Korean production ever.

    Mother 2017
    Amidst a wild flat meadow encircled by an Edenic lush forest, a couple have cocooned themselves in a secluded mansion that was not so long ago burned to the ground, devotedly restored by the supportive wife. Within this safe environment, the once famous middle-aged poet husband is desirous of creating his magnum opus; however, he seems unable to break out of the persistent creative rut that haunts him. Then, unexpectedly, a knock at the door, the sudden arrival of a cryptic late-night visitor and his intrusive wife will stimulate the writer's stagnant imagination. Little by little, much to the perplexed wife's surprise, the more chaos he lets in their haven, the better for his punctured male ego. In the end, will this incremental mess blemish, irreparably, the couple's inviolable sanctuary?

    I watched this after listening to Aeon Byte podcast describing some of the symbolism, yes i like a bit of gnostism.

    dealing with power-hungry gods, we deconstruct Darren Aronofsky’s misunderstood film Mother!, mining this Gnostic tale for arcane revelations on the archetypal fallen goddess.

    This type of movie plays with your emotions and feelings and will stay with you as you ponder over it for a few days.

    Risk (2016) Directed by Laura Poitras (Citizen Four).

    Filmed over six years including through the 2016 presidential election and up to the present moment, RISK takes viewers closer than they have ever been before to Julian Assange and those who surround him.
    With unprecedented access, Poitras give us the WikiLeaks story from the inside, allowing viewers to understand our current era of massive leaks, headline-grabbing news, and the revolutionary impact of the internet on global politics.


    This was an intriguing documentary to say the least. Julian Assange has been 'exiled' in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London, UK since 2012 and despite the occasional leaks that come out (Vault7), we don't hear much from the guy. That said, this documentary shows the private side of the man, which I think needs to be questioned more. What appears in this film is a man who is bold, yet may appear arrogant at times and his team members look more like members of a cult than regular human rights activists. He also doesn't seem to really fearful of the consequences of his actions, which there is a difference between courageous and accepting risks versus naive (or calculated) fearlessness. The image I got of him from this documentary was of a narcissistic, god-complex driven individual with very intelligence cover-like tactics to run his organization. And I'll be the first to admit I supported Julian Assange (and still do to a lesser degree) but nobody's clean in this business.
    And I apologize if I'm spoiling some beans here but really you will notice at the end of the documentary, a very peculiar scene in which Poitras asks Assange his motivations for doing what he does, and he eerily answers that people need to move on from thinking locally, to acting on global scales. And I'm doing a lame job at paraphrasing him but I for one would argue that to change the world, you need to change yourself first and foremost and it ripples onwards. The other-way around is too reminiscent of marxist tactics. After this, he basically stops collaborating with Poitras on the documentary, stating it is going against his freedoms. Seriously Julian?

    Assange in my gut feeling opinion is at best a dude who's being played at by shadow factions (Jesuits?), at worse he is a direct player of those same factions playing the Hegelian dialectic in order to steer masses towards a Global Governance system (aka NWO).
    And yet I think his organization Wikileaks is something that's needed in this climate. The problem as always is the players who steer the ship, rather than the ship itself that becomes questionable.

    PS: I wanted to add that I feel the same way about Ed Snowden, but at least the guy seems humble enough to make it believable he's sincere. In the end, the only thing I know for sure, is I know nothing.

    The subject of this documentary might just be the tip of a very big iceberg.

    The Simulation Hypothesis

    Are we living in a virtual reality? Is the universe emerging from an information processing system? And if so, could we ever tell? Is it possible to 'hack' the system and change reality? Take a look at the evidence and decide for yourself!

    Contributions to THE SIMULATION HYPOTHESIS are made by leading researchers from physics, cosmology, mathematics and information sciences.

    Appearances by MaxTegmark, Neil degrasse Tyson, Paul Davies, James Gates and many more. Science has never been so much fun!

    “What an incredible film! Fascinating, mind-bending stuff.” - Timothy Rhys, Publisher: MovieMaker Magazine "Supremely interesting, compelling, fantastic!" - David Hoffman, Producer: Cannes Film Festival Critics Prize Winner "By far the best video I have watched on this topic, bar none." - Prof. Brian Whitworth, Systems Analysis: Massey University

    Ancient Architects
    is a YouTube channel dedicated to unravelling history's most enigmatic mysteries. We look at the structures that define the world's most ancient civilisations, from The Sphinx and the Great Pyramid, to Stonehenge and Gobekli Tepe.

    I found this channel has fairly short well produced vids on most of the worlds ancient mysterious sites - plus the guy offers not only the alternative views out there but also his take on what might have happened - his on on King Tut below is new to me and make alot of sense.
    Here's just a few loads more on his channel

    From This Thread:
    " Samsara (and the others in the series, baraka, and quianquatsi

    samsara is fucked up.

    if i could choose one movie to show to aliens, about humans, this would be it.

    it is (or almost is) wordless, language-less, it's about human beings, their crazy cultures/ceremonies/traditions/landscapes, and the visual aspects of those.

    In the past few days, I've watched two amazing films:


    1) La Planète Sauvage (Fantastic Planet) by René Laloux (1973) which is an incredible animation that I wouldn't want to spoil, except to say that everyone listening to this show would surely enjoy. It's incredible.
    I would also recommend watching the extras. Lots of insights on the production, including how a lot of the drawings and script were made and inspired by folks from a mental institution. It's fascinating, and I tend to think this movie has lots in common with what we know on gnosis, archons and lizard folks. Cheers!



    2) The Holy Mountain by Alejandro Jodorowsky (1973 as well!! what are the odds. Historic time in film-making for sure!)
    A Classic. I've re-watched this one, sober, after a while. Every time I do though, I am blown away by the dream-like and poetic landscape that Jodorowsky captures on film. The DVD version with digital remaster has incredible quality to it, and the extras on the DVD are very interesting (deleted scenes, comments on the Tarot and the film restoration process)

    But these two movies are not just entertainment. They are experiences that touch the soul. It shows how radical and experimental the filmmaking process used to be and it's quite the show!

    A Good American (2015)
    Directed by Friedrich Moser

    This is an awesome documentary about the story of William Binney, former Technical Director at NSA turned whistleblower after the 2001 attacks. It traces the story of Binney at NSA which is cool given how secretive it is, but also details regarding the ThinThread program which would've been an incredibly sophisticated and efficient way to collect metadata to intercept criminals in an anonymous way, as opposed to the corrupt, TrailBlazer program using bulk-data acquisition that led to WB's resignation in 2001. It's a great thrilling documentary that exposes the corruption of NSA by the Military-Industrial-Complex (MIC) and also gives us solutions that are potentially much more effective and low-cost.

    Long story short, I recommend this to all THC folks, not only for the quality of the film, but because Binney is a vocal member for this community doing work with the International Tribunal for Natural Justice (ITNJ), as well as working in Netherlands and EU to implement a commercial version of ThinThread.

    While I'm at it, if you're so inclined, William Binney made a convincing case last year about why the so-called guccifer 2.0 DNC hack was not a Russian hack, but an insider who purposely harvested/leaked data using a thumb drive, based on forensic timestamps and speed transfers. Though it doesn't prove who did it, it certainly confirms that it wasn't a remote-distance hack, which is the narrative being pushed by, and frankly if you're like me, it's becoming annoying.

    Title: Hereditary
    Year: 2018
    Synopsis: I won't give any details away so I won't potentially ruin your fun, but it is one of the better horror films I've seen in a while. I didn't watch the trailer before I saw the movie, so I had no idea what it was about. I'm glad I didn't see the trailer, it was better that way. If you like horror movies, I would wager you will really enjoy this.

    Trailer:
    Available on Amazon

    I just finished watching The Dallas Buyer's Club, and man that was an amazing film. Matthew McConaughey kills it once again with an incredible performance. The film isn't new, but it's a great story about Big Pharma and the suppression of drugs for HIV patients back in the 80s.
    One thing that caught my eye numerous times were the symbolism throughout the film: pyramid hand-signs, new world order, #33.
    I probably wouldn't've caught this a few years ago, but now it's pretty obvious.

    Another good film I would recommend, surprisingly, is the recent Bradley Cooper-directed film A Star Is Born featuring Lady Gaga. I never was a big fan of hers (and her seemingly friendship with Marina Abramovic) so I was skeptical to say the least. But it hit the sweet spot, an authentic vibe from Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga too. I don't want to spoil it, but it's nice to see a hollywood film hitting the zeitgeist, even if it's only a performance.

    I watched yesterday the new Bob Lazar documentary (Bob Lazar: Area 51 & Flying Saucers by Jeremy Corbell) that just came out.
    It features narration by Mickey Rourke (The Wrestler), as well as old George Knapp who first got Bob Lazar public more than thirty-years ago.
    It's funny too, because in my early teen years when I first discovered the internet, I would pull all-nighters looking up Area 51 and Bob Lazar. All of it faded away until now, and although Bob's story is just a small piece of the puzzle, it's still an important one that I think should be heard.

    The Disclosure scene has so many people coming forward with so much intel (which must include false intel too), with Nazi Germany UFO research/Paperclip, US Navy involvement / SolarWarden-SSP. It's quite an exciting time to witness, and Bob Lazar still hasn't changed any of his claims. In fact, since he first came out, Element 115 has officially been recognized as ununpentium, aka moscovium.

    anyways, it was well-made, and I would recommend this and Above Majestic for those curious.
