Spoiler Alert: I intend to dissect every major sequence.

Note: Erik is young Magneto.

1. Nazi death camp 1944 where Erik is discovered, clear indication of trauma based programming by handler Sebastian Shaw to enhance his powers. Lower Chakra energy of anger is used to magnify Erik's powers.

2. Mystique is Indigo in colour and shapeshifts. Subconscious refrence/instruction to those "Indigo Children" who are descendants of Shape Shifting blue bloods. The programming for them is to be "Mutant and Proud" or to come out of hiding. The programming to the masses is to accept hybrid reptilian entities.

3. Cut to 1962 in Oxford. This is the year MKUltra started in full swing. Oliver Pratt plays the role of a CIA PsyOps Chief and recruits Charles Xavier to identify gifted kids to work for the CIA. Charles uses "Cerebro" to tap into each and every human being's Mind. The whole thing is eerily similar to Project Montauk. Cerebro could be the Montauk Chair.

4. Programmed XMen are to be used in a battle to avert the Cuba Missile Crisis. JFK was shown many times. Shaw recruits many of his German discoveries [Azazel, the satanic looking entitiy has a East European accent].
Hint of Operation Paper Clip. Azazel is also the name of a watcher in the "Book of Enoch".

5. Shaw's base is a submarine hinted as being stationed in Antarctica. A hint that Hitler escaped there. His arm candy is a telepathic blonde bombshell who can turn into a crystal being. Crystal Child indicator?

6. Charles uses hypnotic motivational techniques to train the X Men to enhance their potential. The XMan Hank tries using a vaccine and ends up turning into a Beast. Hints of drug experiments that failed in MKUltra?

7. Charles speaks to a girl who has two different eye colours and says that she has a Mutation. This is a known sign of a Programmed Alter in the MK Ultra experiments.

8. CIA's agent who believes in Charles is named Moira, the greek word for the 3 Fates. Hint that the entire Mutation Evolution thingy is Fated.

9. The only XMan to get killed in this movie is Darwin, the one who is said to adapt to all conditions. You can read this in Martin Lawrence or Chris Rock's accent: "There is no friggin Conspiracy. They always kill a brother in Hollywood blockbusters."
But seriously, to portray a black man as Darwin and to kill him off instead of allowing him to wear the XMen Superhero Costume and at least die in a heroic fight?! Whats the subconscious message? That black people cannot sustain an evolutionary mutation, that they are to be finished off by a dark mutated force?

10. Erik enhances his power a hundred fold when Charles "illuminates him": That his power will increase when he accesses his highest emotional state of Love [that he has for his mother, a hint at Kundalini], and that he must find the balanced point between rage and his highest state of Love.
Under Charle's control, when he accesses this for the first time, one of his eyes sheds a tear. Charles role is that of a guru giving shaktipat by allowing recall of a past memory.
After this incident, the same night Erik sleeps with Mystique in her original blue form, and calls her as beautiful as a Tigress. Reference to the goddess Durga Myth who rides a Tiger. Could also refer to Erik's discovery of Kundalini Shakti after his conscious/aware access of Superconsciousness State.
Mystique leaves her most loyal friend of 18 years (Charles) because Charles is not able to take that step of merging with her in her true blue form. It is as if Charles rejects full Kundalini Awareness, and hence the Shakti goes to Magneto from Charles Pineal Chakra when he was in Erik's head to help him access his Higher State.

11. Erik finishes off Shaw when Charles freezes him. He kills him by sending a Nazi Medallion right through Shaw's Pineal Gland.
The message is that Shaw never raised his powerful "Energy Absorption" vibration beyond the heart chakra and hence he could be conquered by one having a more powerful Ajna Chakra. Charles feels Shaws pain yet survives.

12. Moira's bullets towards Erik
hit Charles in the base of the Spine [Kundalini Origin]. He can never raise his Kundalini beyond the Crown again, it is Pineal Gland Maximum for him. Plus showing that he lost his shakti Mystique.

13. When Erik holds a hurt Charles, the tear falls from his other eye.
At this point, Erik feels he has got full realization and understabding about Humanity, and that only Mutants deserve to rule. This is a subtle trick to scare the masses from Kundalini Realization. In truth, once one knows that one has attained a superior state, he or she will unconditionally work for the upliftment of others.

14. Charles in a wheelchair nurturing kids to fight with the CIA against dark mutants is now shown as the good guy. The fully realized being, Magneto is shown as the super villain.

15. Not once is Erik shown with any personal vice except his systematic avenging of Nazis.
And humanity is shown as extremely dumb and totally unforgiving, even psychotic towards mutants. Another disconcerting aspect is the complete absence of any mention of God or Immortal Soul/Spirit/Consciousness.
And one very sinister scene shows a dead Shaw being brought down with arms spread wide as if he is a crucified Jesus. The joke is prior to his end, he calls Erik his son!
It is as if they wanted to convey Shaw to be like Samael and goofed big time because they wanted to subtly poke fun at Christianity at the same time.

All in all, a great special effects masterpiece but laden with many occult truths that show the agenda of one type of secret society that wishes to prevent Conscious Evolution/Spiritual Mutation by focusing on secret government Approved Genetic Mutation only as the right path.

Not that I fully agree with all of it, but this is a brilliant analysis.

Randall, please share your views too. I have given a totally one dimensional analysis focused on Kundalini, I agree there will be lots more interesting viewpoints.

And I forgot to praise one of the greatest anti-hero performances of all time by Michael Fassbender. He has it in him to be the next James Bond or the next James Bond villain

After a long time, a success for a 1977 born. It had to be an Aries

Wow this is a very brilliant analysis! I'm an X-Men fan and your take on all this is very enlightening. I also love the fact about Darwin, one who adjust to all types of conditions--very true as black folks have gone through a lot and had to make a lot of adjustment in extreme adversarial conditions and still be able to rise up. I hate the fact they always be killing off a black guy or black person off--for most cases anyhow. The psychological warfare is absolutely astounding towards black folks--the subliminal message--you guys are not worthy. Makes me extremely outrage.

Anyhow, iQ--love love your analysis...I think you got something there in all you said!

Did Erik really sleep with Mystique? I got the impression that he refused...

Thanks Raya!
I found many Gnostic Messages in "Tron" as well, hope to post that some other time.

Yes Erik did sleep with Mystique. That's how he got her to walk away from Xavier. Erik told her not to look human but be her blue self. If I meet a man who tells me not to cover myself up and to be proud of who I am...I would pick him vs. Xavier telling her to cover true self.

iQ I would love to read your take on it. However, I didn't get into Tron much--was really long and highly boring to me at times. Now...Star Wars is quite long, but I find it more entertaining and I believe there is Gnostic Message in that also. Same with Avatar...a lovely movie.

I think Tron's cast left a lot to be desired, I mean how much of Jeff Bridges can we take in one movie??!! But they still packed a very powerful Gnostic Message in there.

The last scene was akin to a Crown Chakra opening the Portal to a Higher Existence.
The protagonist Sam is the only Son of the Creator of the Virtual Reality Grid [Matrix?] and he escapes along with the "miraculous" Isomorph/spontaneously created girl [His Shakti, his Kundalini, his "Holy Grail" ?], to change the Real World that is ignorant to any such Matrix and to the dangers of Perfection under a Dictatorial "god" like CLU [same letters as LUC = Lucifer]. Jeff Bridges may have been playing the role of ArchAngel Michael whose dark Twin is said to be Lucifer. Their merger destroys the Matrix but the Essence of the Matrix is safely spiralled up through Sam and his "Shakti" Quarros.

And yes, Star Wars has so much hidden wisdom, we will discuss that as well.

Uh...I fell asleep to the movie..hehehe...so I don't particularly remember the last scene...maybe somewhat and I think I didn't associate any esoteric hidden message behind the movie...if I was really interested perhaps...but not so much...movie left a feeling of mehhhh...

But if you do see it, I appreciate the insight. Perhaps in extreme boredom and somehow I come across the movie while in my rare moment of watching tv and channel surfing, perhaps I will deign to scrutinize it more closely. In the meanwhile, I don't think I will be running to blockbuster to rent and watch it so I can find out what you're talking about the crown chakra opening up to a higher existence...

Even I saw Tron while channel surfing, did not expect it to have anything esoteric so was pleasantly surprised.

Hmmm...so you saw the old Tron vs. the new tron huh? I was told both were not that interesting, but I watched the new one. I was forewarned, but I like to see things for myself on whether I like something or not.

Back in December I asked a few boomers IRL how X-Men: First Class would've gone over if played at cinemas during the Cold War (say by mischievous or curious time travelers). Special effects aside, I'd think it would subvert Cold War propaganda in that both the US and USSR are seen a more realistic, morally ambiguous people driven by ideology and fear rather than pure evil or as brainwashed servants of the state, and ultimately both were facing common enemies, and then both allied together making them both bad guys (though even then they weren't portrayed as sociopaths). While neither country was portrayed as the "evil empire" neither was portrayed in such a way as to be seen as unquestionably wise & just (thus making their authority questionable), either. I was curious how much it would screw with people's heads back then, and if it would've inspired an ideological moral panic.

Unfortunately, almost no one I asked (who'd be old enough to say) saw the movie, but of the very few who did had very different views (much to my surprise), and I thought I'd sum it up and offer it here for others to add their insights and opinions. My question was how would it go in 1969 (after the Hayes code was pretty much over) and also 1960 before the Cuban missile crisis, though it ended up going into how it would be perceived in the 80s as well. Summed up:

1960: One claimed all hell would break loose in a time that even MAD magazine got visited by the Feds for mocking the government and even It's a Wonderful Life came under FBI scrutiny for having the villain being such a wealthy individual (and thus promoting Communist propaganda instead of Capitalist propaganda). Also, it's possible that Jupiter missiles in Turkey weren't public knowledge at the time as even JFK didn't know about it until advised during the Cuban missile crisis (and Charles is accused of being a spy in the movie after he asks about them).

OTOH, Dr. No came out in 1962 and showed plenty of skin and fairly competent women. Also, Hugh Hefner's Playboy Clubs and the Playboy Mansion was a popular icon in the 60s and James Bond is shown as having some kind of card or key for it in I think Diamonds are Forever. Thus the film may not have provoked a moral panic (at least on non ideological grounds) and been popular, and just may have been seen as a popcorn flick with epic special effects.

1969: Everyone agreed that in the political turmoil of the time that this would've generated A LOT of hand wringing and screaming over this film and it would even be labelled as outright Satanic, but would also be a blockbuster hit that catapulted all the stars into international fame (this was the ONLY thing everyone I asked agreed upon).

In addition to subverting Cold War propaganda, it showed women being in control of their sexuality (and controlling men through it) as well as having brains and competence (while the male audience could still appreciate the skin showed), and it would also tap the racial turmoil of the difference between MLK Jr. (Xavier) and Malcolm X (Magneto), which would help make this film a huge hit while at the same time scaring the crap out of plenty of others for the same reason. In short, the movie would likely generate intense discussion & debate from the Cold War to race relations and feminism (all huge topics of the day challenging the status quo), which is why it would be intensely huge but at the same time reviled (especially by TPTB).

And by this time, not only was the Hayes code over with, but Star Trek was (much more subtly) questioning the social order on TV (including with the character Chekov) and James Bond movies sometimes had a similar feel.

1980s: One said the Cold War was losing steam and she cited many movies (such as War Games to The Day After and even some James Bond movies), and popular songs (like Sting's Russians) that were saying both sides needed to take a chill pill and relax. Russia seemed a little less evil and kids in American schools started questioning Cold War propaganda (I previously heard how American schools started to phase out the teaching of critical thinking skills in the early 80s, which a few believe was Reagan trying to stem kids from looking at American propaganda with the same critical eye as toward Russian propaganda, too). So she thinks it would've just been seen as another over the top popcorn flick (with epic special effects of course).

But a guy said the Cold War was still going strong even in the 80s and cited Ronald Reagan's "bear in the woods" ad, and all too many hit movies capitalized on it, such as the Rambo and Missing in Action films, Rocky IV, Red Dawn, and a bunch of others I can't recall. So it was still a big deal (either that or guys just liked seeing bad guys blown up and blown away and Commies were convenient bad guys at the time), and even though The Terminator had a similar spiel of an unknown enemy exploiting the Cold War to crush the world and its social order to take over, the movie never humanized the Soviets as the X-Men movie did.

So he believes that even in the 80s it would generate an ideological moral panic, or at least screw with how people were used to thinking. (He also claimed that when he saw Terminator 2: Judgement Day in 1991 that he felt shocked over the line of the Russians being "our friends now" as it was almost too much to take in.)

Anyway, since someone expressed interest in other ways to view XM:FC I thought I'd share about that. And for those curious, I was born in October 1982 and being female I barely had any exposure to Cold War propaganda growing up (I recall playing games with little boys about pretending to fight Russian invaders but that's about it, and some outdated textbooks in school also villainized the Russians but the teachers didn't emphasize it as Soviet Russia was over by then).
