Considering the unfolding swine flu drama and the New, Fast-Evolving Rabies Virus, we thought it would be a good time to revisit 2007's post-apocalyptic I Am Legend (not to include the book or previous film versions).
The film opens with a Dr. Alice Krippin announcing a cure for cancer. They have re-engineered the measles virus to be helpful to the body.
Dr. Krippin says, “If you can imagine your body as a highway and you picture the virus as a very fast car being driven by a very bad man. Imagine the damage that man can cause. Then replace that man with a cop, the picture changes.”
At this point, she says there have been 10,009 clinical trials with a 100% cure rate.
The film then jumps forward 3 years to 2012 in New York City--zip code 10009. The city is desolate and being overgrown with weeds. Wild animals like deer and tigers roam freely throughout the city.
What we are shown is New York, the capital of the world, returning to its natural state now that the humans are gone. It is being "re-wilded."
At first, this seems like a well-intentioned experiment gone horribly wrong, and that's what you're supposed to think. But we need to understand what the NWO psychopaths mean by terms such as "a cure for cancer."
Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh: “In the event that I am reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to contribute something to solve overpopulation.”
Merton Lambert, former spokesman for the Rockefeller Foundation: “The world has a cancer, and that cancer is man.”
The Georgia Guidestones: “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.” And: “Be not a cancer on the earth—leave room for nature—leave room for nature.”
They've cured cancer: humanity.
We are then shown what Dr. Krippin told us to imagine minutes before: a very fast car driving on a highway/body--this body is Mother Earth.
The overt, atheistic message in this scene signifies man's knowledge: that which was once thought of as the wrath of God (disease) now has a scientific explanation.
The fast car, a Mustang, represents a virus as Krippin said. But covertly it is also an allusion to the horsemen of the apocalypse in the Book of Revelation. Replacing the bad man (God) with a cop (Robert Neville) is an attempt to re-engineer destiny and escape the wrath of God and judgement.
The NWO clowns preach atheism, but they secretly know there is a God, and they think they can defeat Him. It is only the outer circle "herd" that believes there is no God.
At home we see a Time magazine on the fridge. Lt. Col. Neville, a U.S. Army virologist, is on the cover with the caption "Savior?"
On the film's promotional poster above we see an allusion to Orion, The Hunter, with his dog Canis Major. Neville is a descendant of the gods, the chosen, or Aryan race--those with a natural immunity to the virus.
The name Neville is French for "new village." He is the christos archetype of the new world, and one of the 12 million who are immune to the Krippin virus. In Revelation 7:2-4, we see that the 12 tribes are sealed for protection from the wrath of God:
“And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.”
What they didn't plan for was the other 588 million survivors who mutated into superhuman savages--the darkseekers--that then proceeded to feed on the chosen race.
These darkseekers have an intolerance to UV light, so they can only go out at night. Neville can only go out during the day because of the darkseekers. Ergo, he is a "lightseeker" and Manhattan Island is the battleground between the forces of light and darkness.
As usual, light and darkness are reversed: Neville represents the Luciferian light, and the darkseekers represent the forces of God who are trying to destroy them. Isaiah 5:
"Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"
This battle between good and evil is why this film is sometimes viewed as a "Christian" film. It's religious, yes, but Christian, no. It's actually the opposite of a Christian film. One has to notice that the uniforms have been changed to understand this.
In a flashback, Neville evacuates his family. He tells his wife, "The window is still open... we find something in a week, two weeks, we can reverse the spread. I can still fix this."
His wife says he can do that off the island, but Neville refuses to leave, saying, "This is ground zero. This is my site. I’m not gonna let this happen."
The christos says Manhattan is his site. This is ground zero for the battle between good and evil. Recall that Krippin told us there had been 10009 "clinical trials" and that the NYC zip code is 10009. "Ground Zero" is earth, the isolated/quarantined area; it is the human zoo, or lab experiment, of the demiurge. And the Neville christos is going to fix it.
In his basement lab, Neville is testing rats for a cure to KV. Only one rat shows positive results though, Number 6. This rat was give GA series serum 391, compound 6.
Recall that in the film The Island the number 312 was featured prominently behind Lincold 6 Echo. 6 is the number of man and 312 was the year Constantine adopted Christianity. Here we see a similar theme. 391 was the year Emperor Theodosius made Christianity the official religion.
Coincidentally, 391 is a “Smith” number, meaning that the sum of its digits (3 + 9 + 1 = 13) is equal to the sum of the number’s prime factor digits (17, 23; 1 + 7 + 2 + 3 = 13)
After seeing that the effects are being reversed, Neville tells the rat, "Hang in there Number 6." This compound signifies man's triumph over the "tyranny" of God, reversing its effects. This is also what Krippin referred to when she said "the picture changes"--mankind taking control of his own destiny, or becoming the creator of his own world. Gods.
At the video store Neville chats with the mannequins. He gives "Fred" a compliment on his sweatshirt and jokingly tells him not to set it down.
This orange sweatshirt is an allusion to the star Betelguese, the orange star at the shoulder of the constellation Orion. The color of the sweatshirt is "hunter's orange" worn in the fall.
Later, as Neville pumps gas, we are clearly shown that he is an anti-savior.
Every day Neville waits at the seaport hoping for other survivors that have heard his message broadcast on all AM channels. He says:
"I will be at the South Street Seaport every day at mid-day, when the sun is highest in the sky. If you are out there, if anyone is out there. I can provide food, I can provide shelter, I can provide security. If there’s anybody out there, anybody... please, you are not alone."
In this messianic broadcast to the world, Neville is the provider and he invites anyone to come to him when the sun is highest in the sky.
Later, Neville discovers a hive of darkseekers and captures one of them.
He brings it back to his lab and commences human trials to “transfer his immunity” via GA serum 391 compound 6.
This lab is Neville’s own human zoo/quarantine area/material prison--a notion associated with the demiurge. But in the hands of the christos it represents ascension: Neville must become like God in order to defeat Him. However, this first test seems to be ineffective and he stores the body in a safe area.
After his lab test, Neville records an entry in his video journal. This is “Day 1001.”
This is a curious number as the 1001 Club: A Nature Trust helps fund the World Wildlife Fund. The 1001 Club was co-founded in 1970 by Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. Prince Bernhard, a former Nazi and co-founder of the Bilderberg Group, was the first president of the WWF. The WWF was co-founded by Julian Huxley, a president of the British Eugenics Society and the one who coined the term "transhumanism."
President of the WWF from 1981-1996 was Prince "I want to be a killer virus" Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. And other notable names on the 1001 Club roster are: Rockefeller, Rothschild, Oppenheimer, Ford, and bin Laden. One would have to admit this is a rather inauspicious nexus of themes between art and reality.
Neville’s journal entry: “Vaccine trials continue. I am still unable to transfer my immunity to infected hosts. The Krippin Virus is... elegant.” Then, as an expression of his frustration, he says to himself, “Just fishing in the dark, son.”
Shortly thereafter we find Neville at the Metropolitan Museum of Art fishing in a tranquility pool in front of the Egyptian Temple of Dendur, once dedicated to Isis and Osiris. Behind Neville is the temple gate depicting the winged sun disk of the Egyptian sky god Horus. Satanist Aleister Crowley called the New Age the Age of Horus, Horus representing their version of the messiah. The pyramids of Giza themselves were an earthly representation of the “belt” of Orion, they were actually constructing, or bringing, the Mighty Hunter on earth. Also in ancient Egypt, Orion was known as the “soul of Osiris.”
This reflecting pool signifies the Hermetic principle “as above, so below,” the macrocosmos being the same as the microcosmos. This was expressed previously in Neville’s Lab (microcosmos) as he sought to affect the world (macrocosmos)—these symbols are themselves a reflection of their larger counterparts: the world (microcosmos) and the universe (macrocosmos). So Neville is a reflection, or descendent, of the gods made manifest on earth.
He is Horus, the sun of the Golden Dawn, the christos, and he is fishing. Matthew 4:19: “And He saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Jesus spoke of bringing people into the Kingdom of God. The Neville christos is trying to keep people out of it.
Neville is trapped in a snare similar to the one he used to capture the darkseeker.
When he cuts himself free he falls on his knife and receives a leg wound.
This leg wound is again symbolic of the "Fisher King" of Arthurian legend, who is always wounded in the leg or groin. The Fisher King, or Wounded King, is the king whose responsibility it is to keep the Holy Grail.
This Holy Grail is supposedly the royal bloodline descending from King David—from whom the Messiah was promised. But as the NWO Kabbalists don’t recognize Jesus Christ as the Messiah, they are awaiting a coming messiah. This false messiah is represented by Robert Neville.
After his dog becomes infected and has to be euthanize, Neville goes on a suicide/revenge mission. About to be killed by the darkseekers, Neville is saved by a bright light that scares them away.
On the way back to his home, a woozy Neville sees a crucifix hanging from the rear-view mirror. This is to imply that when Anna talks about "god" she is talking about the Biblical God. But she isn't.
Anna and Ethan heard his radio message. They are on their way to a survivors' colony in Vermont.
Neville says, "There’s no survivors’ colony... no safe zone. Nothing happened the way it was supposed to happen. Nothing worked the way it was supposed to work."
The way it was supposed to work was only the cancerous herd, the useless eaters, were supposed to be killed off. There weren't supposed to be vicious darkseekers that killed off the chosen race.
Anna plans to leave the next day. Again Neville refuses to leave Manhattan, saying, "I’m not leaving. This is ground zero. This is my site. I’m not going to let this happen. I can still fix this."
When Neville asks Anna how she knows there is a survivors' colony, she says, "God told me. He has a plan."
There's a Plan all right. From "The Great Invocation" at Lucis Trust.org:
"From the centre which we call the race of men
Let the Plan of Love and Light work out
And may it seal the door where evil dwells."
"Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth."
Anna: "I know how this sounds."
Neville: "Sounds crazy."
Anna: "Something told me to turn on the radio. Something told me to come here."
Neville: "My voice on the radio told you to come here, Anna."
Later Anna tells him, "The world is quieter now. You just have to listen. If you listen, you can hear God’s plan."
Then they hear a noise outside. The darkseekers followed them home the night before and are preparing to attack the house. They run downstairs to the safety of the lab.
They then notice that GA series serum 391, compound 6 is reversing the effects of the KV.
Neville shouts at the oncoming darkseekers: "I can save you! I can save you! I can help you. You are sick and I can help you. I can fix this. I can save everybody."
As the attacking darkseeker smashes into the lab's glass door, the cracks form a butterfly pattern. Butterflies have been recurring symbols throughout the film. The butterfly is symbolic of the transformation from earthly creature to divine being.
It is here that Neville has a moment of divine revelation.
He looks down at Anna and sees the butterfly tattoo on her neck.
Anna is now an obvious Jungian anima archetype, the feminine catalyst. It is she who helps Neville realize his role in the "Plan."
Now a believer, he quickly draws blood from the captive darkseeker and gives it to Anna and says, "I think this is why you're here."
Anna: "What are you doing?"
Neville: "I'm listening."
He then takes a hand grenade from his drawer and blows up the lab. He sacrifices his life to ensure the cure gets out.
Anna and Ethan arrive at the colony in Bethel, Vermont. Bethel, or Beth-el, means "house of God."
The town was named after the Biblical story of Jacob in Genesis 28:
"And he lighted upon a certain place, and tarried there all night, because the sun was set; and he took of the stones of that place, and put them for his pillows, and lay down in that place to sleep."
"And he dreamed, and behold a ladder set up on the earth, and the top of it reached to heaven: and behold the angels of God ascending and descending on it."
"And, behold, the LORD stood above it, and said, I am the LORD God of Abraham thy father, and the God of Isaac: the land whereon thou liest, to thee will I give it, and to thy seed;"
"And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the east, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed."
"And Jacob awaked out of his sleep, and he said, Surely the LORD is in this place; and I knew it not."
"And he was afraid, and said, How dreadful is this place! this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven."
Anna hands over the blood in Bethel, i.e., the seed, the Holy Grail, enters the gate of Heaven.
Here man is god. They have survived God's wrath and will repopulate the earth.
At the close of the film Anna says, “Doctor Robert Neville dedicated his life to the discovery of a cure and the restoration of humanity. On September 9, 2012, at approximately 8:49 p.m., he discovered that cure. And at 8:52, he gave his life to defend it. We are his legacy. This is his legend. Light up the darkness.”
852 , the time at which Neville sacrificed himself, is another Smith number. Also, if you convert the two times into 24 hour time—2049 and 2052—you get two “apocalyptic powers;” 2 raised to the apocalyptic power yields a decimal with 666 in it. And not only are they both apocalyptic powers, but they are consecutive apocalyptic powers (2045, 2047, 2049, 2052, 2053...).
The day on which Neville dies, 9-9-2012, is 13 days prior to the autumnal equinox, which, in 2012, will fall on the 22nd of September. 13 days before and after the eight “occult holidays” known as the Wheel of the Year are significant days, often involving human sacrifice. This fall equinox is known as “Mabon” (divine son), who was, depending on whom you ask, King Arthur, King Arthur’s cousin, or was freed from prison by King Arthur.
The "Krippen" virus may be an allusion to a Doctor Hawley Crippin, a homeopathic physician who worked for a pharmaceutical company--coincidentally born on 11 September 1862.
These numbers and inter-textual tie-ins indicate a supernatural involvement within the creation process of the film rather than an intentional inclusion on the part of the scriptwriters/film makers.
This survivors' colony is the new village, which we can see is a small farm town. It is the new Garden of Eden of the new world. A new beginning. The picture that Krippin mentioned at the beginning has changed. Mankind has re-engineered his fate. But this is a counterfeit New Age message, just as this colony is a counterfeit of the new Jerusalem found in Revelation 21:2:
"And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband."
