Pandoras Box – a curiosity and opening of a jar “containing sickness, death and many other unspecified evils which were then released into the world”. Based around a Greek story, involving Prometheus, which interesting was the title of a film. Where curiosity of the origin of man led them to discover and open something they shouldn’t. Curiosity killed the cat as they say. But the original story is one that sounds more like how man would behave, not gods. Prometheus stole fire from heaven, so Zeus decides to punish mankind for this, via his brother’s new wife with a wedding gift of a box, and an order not to open it. Which of course, she opens it, and brings upon mankind the above-mentioned sickness, death and other evils. Makes total sense, right?
But taking out the crazy dramatic tragedy that is the ancient Greek way, we can see that there may be a thread of truth to the tale. It’s easy to set people up, and curiosity does get the better of people. Even when they know there is a chance it will be bring horrors untold. It seems they simply cannot live without knowing, so are prepared to live with the consequences of seeing it play out. But what if unlike Pandora, you knew what was in the box, and it wasn’t the wondering about what was in it that would haunt you, it was the wondering of what happens when it gets out. We like to think it was an error of judgement on her part, Pandora didn’t know, she was just being curious. But what if she did know, as others have with their boxes, and did it anyway? We like to think they didn’t know, how could they? But some do know, and they do it anyway. Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should. And that goes for many areas of life and thought.
Hellraiser (1987) – a puzzle of sorts, a box to be opened and tempt you into hell. And with this box, most people who open it, know what awaits. An eternity of pain and pleasure in a torturous hell of sorts, yet they still open it. As is the way of people it seems.
But currently I believe the Pandoras Box in the world many are talking about, is genetic manipulation. Of plants, animals and people. The cat is out of the bag as they say, and the box has been opened. They are tinkering and tampering as fast as their marketing companies can churn out the campaigns. Because this has all been a long time coming, these projects and plans have been brewing for decades and appear to now be trying to pull together. But there appears to be snag. Not everyone is on board with the changes a few have decided for everyone, people are asking questions, wanting answers and to know how we as humans fit into it. They have projections for less people, more machines, bigger cities and less stuff for everyone. No cars or transport available for average folk, eating insects and occupying your time with tasks they allow you to choose from. Which will suit their needs, not yours. And constant injections and medications that they deem necessary for you. Less fun and enjoyment, restricted lifestyles and choices.
We are now in the next phase, which I have named Pandoras Asylum. We are out of the box and now in the crazy bit of sickness, death and unspecified evils and being treated like patients at their whim and disposal. By restricting the movement of people and freedoms, they get to dictate where you go, who you can see, where you can live. Further that with their online bills and plans – they will also know what you say, who you say it to, what you watch, how much you spend etc. They will then control all these things as they do mostly already, then they get to decide what you can and can’t do. All tied into scoring systems, departments and allocations. Confusing people with times, schedules, monitoring, upgrades, new systems, medications and labels to fit their agendas and ideals of what they want us to be and what they want us to fit into which are already in place. We have been jumping through those hoops for quite some time and many are used to the systems mentioned above, which is why they seek to disrupt them. To cause chaos and uncertainty, which would neatly usher in their premeditated solutions to their manufactured problems. If something appears to be a set up, you need to ask yourself, why that is…
