They Live [Video Companion]
Well, I’ve finally upgraded my computer hardware and can do video editing on my own now. Hence, six months [no hard feelings to former editor, honestly] after recording the audio for the “video companion” to my They Live, We Sleep (trilogy), the finished product is finally available. Hope you enjoy:
PART 1 [V1.2]: The Movie, Aliens, Who, Aton, Television, Mankind’s State
PART 2 [V1.2]: Truth, Elites, South Park, Disinfo, Zionists, Religion, War
PART 3 [V1.2]: Agents, George Lucas, Relationships, Fear, Futurama, Hope
A visiting reader made a rather insightful observation on Ray Nelson’s short story “Eight O’Clock in the Morning” (which the film is based on). I have yet to read Nelson’s work, but feel the comment is pertinent enough to include here:
In the short story by Ray Nelson, which as you said was the catalyst for the film, there are no sunglasses (must be Carpenter’s idea) – he sees things as they are because he was at a hypnotist theatre show and took the directive ‘Awake’ further than expected. The short story definitely is about reptilians, so it’s not Carpenter’s theory. For instance, in “Eight O’Clock in the Morning”:
‘…carefully avoiding giving indication that he saw the green, reptilian flesh or the multiple yellow eyes of the rulers of Earth.”
Even references to shapeshifting, “For a moment the reptilian head dissolved into the face of a lovable old drunk.” All references are to “reptilian”, “alien”, “lizard”, “Fascinator[s]” and “the masters.”
Also worth a mention is that subsequent viewing (and yes, a few of your comments) prove the sunglasses in the film being referenced as “Hoffman Lenses,” after the scientist Albert Hoffman. Per wikiπαιδεία:
Albert Hofmann [January 11, 1906 – April 29, 2008] was a Swiss scientist best known for having been the first to synthesize, ingest and learn of the psychedelic effects of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD). Hofmann authored more than 100 scientific articles and wrote a number of books, including LSD: My Problem Child. On January 11, 2006, Hofmann became a centenarian, and the occasion of his 100th birthday was the focus of an international symposium on LSD.
I find this to be extremely relevant, as LSD (which, from what I understand, is near impossible to find in its original Hoffman formula these days) is a substance that allows one, under the proper conditions, and frame of mind, to expand one’s consciousness outside this 3D reality box. While I would have liked to include this aspect in the final product, it [redoing the audio] would have further delayed getting this out, and I wish to move on to other planned projects.
However, I will stress that I still feel that my interpretation and analysis on the nature of the sunglasses is still pertinent and considering the degrees of depth the film touches, valid. I recently watched Rob Ager’s analysis of The Matrix, and in it, he mentions yet another side of the sunglass metaphor that I had never considered: a method of hiding one’s “awakeness” from the masses [and infiltrators among them].
As I, or should I say “we,” have learned on this [a]synchronous journey of truth-seeking, there are few symbols and metaphors that are not multi-tiered and multi-faceted.
