Continuing my conspiracy theory trend this week (not something I tried for, its just sometimes happens), I came across an esoteric analysis of the new Transformers movie.

The actual conspiracy theory aspect of the article doesn't really interest me, and quite frankly I think the author is giving Michael Bay and other Transformers creators way more credit than deserved as far as subtext to the film. However, it does illustrate how people can and do find additional meanings within media, regardless whether they were intended.

I will also say that Transformers does make use of widely held human imagery and belief: that something greater than us is out there (whether on a supernatural plane or another planet), and that often the conflicts among those greater things impacts life on earth. It also represents our seeking for what is out there, as well as the awesome power that can come with revelation. That's one of the reasons why these stories - even when written with mediocre skill - continue to be so appealing. We identify with the concept even if we don't believe in it in any sort of literal sense. Of course, giant robots beating the snot out of each other wins a lot of fans too.

there are minds bodies and souls awakening all over this planet everyday. all i can say is that what you speak of is the truth. only the believers will be able to see what is written on his forehead. i believe that what you notice and what i notice and what many others notice is not coincidence. you must believe that there is a power source a intelligent design made by the master architect.no matter what they try to do the believers will notice some will stray and they will be proven not of us in the right time. theres no need for me to explain the meaning behind the movie you already know i just hope this isnt some trick to get some spoooks to go through my stuff. i mean well friend i hope you find what your looking for. may He guide us all on the right path. dont let these imageries and people with their hidden agendas deliver you from him. i pray that youll find what your looking for and always remember that peace and unconditional love is the only way to make it through this world now of days. DONT LET IT GET THE BEST OF YOU>>>>>>
