All consciousness is connected in the universe, and this includes the microcosm of the human collective on planet Earth. Since consciousness is what ultimately creates reality, I like to pay attention to what trends are currently active in the world in order to understand how the collective is being influenced and what ideas are being manifested into reality.
One of the most powerful tools for influencing the collective is movies, and recently there has most definitely been a significant trend in apocalyptic scenarios, extraterrestrial invasions, and terrorism. Many of the most major movies that have been released over the past few weeks have had these elements, including Man of Steel, Iron Man 3, Olympus Has Fallen, This is the End, World War Z, Star Trek Into Darkness, Oblivion, and After Earth, and there are many more that have been released and others coming out soon.
Of course, this trend of fear-based movies is nothing new in the contemporary film industry, but it makes me wonder how much more the collective will take of it until a breaking point is reached and these concepts are no longer deemed appropriate.
In fact, I saw this headline on IMDb just yesterday: In Light of Sandy Hook, Jim Carrey Won’t Support Kick-Ass 2. Is there a chance others will also take up the torch and stop investing their energy into violent media? Who knows, but it’s certainly possible. I for one do enjoy a lot of these movies, although I watch them mainly to decode their messages, and would have no problem if the violence and action were toned down—just compare the difference between Wrath of Khan and Into Darkness and you will know what I mean.
