: Indiana Jones and the Edge of Creation
(though Realm of the Dead is pretty cool too…) sits greenlighted on a Producers desk at Paramount. You can all discuss the working title if you like, or you can banter about how I know what I know, it makes no difference to me, as long as it is civil and adheres to the Hamanaptura of the Raven
. The point is: there is a symbolism that the unholy trinity wanted to convey with this film.
What I will tell you is this. There is a symbolic connection to this Final Cinematic Chapter in the Indy Legend. This is the Fourth Film. That’s right, read it again. No. F-O-U-R. The only number in the English language whose letters equal it’s nomenclature. Now, that might not seem like a big deal to you, but consider this. George “Jungian” Lucas has exhausted the archetypal motifs at this point. Spielberg’s “Big Two” have already been examined. Ford, well he’s old (sorry Canyon, he is.) That only leaves “Purpose” as an underlying theme for this final film. Herein lies-The Four
There are FOUR
winds that blow on the earth. Even before Magellan sailed the ocean blue, these winds were spoken of in a little know Patmosian text, describing how no winds would blow on any tree or sea. You can reference this at Rev. 7:1
. This corresponds to the FOUR
Cardinal points of a compass. But I see that you are all skeptical. Even you ToJ are wondering how this will all tie into a final film. But that’s okay, I will expand on this: There are the FOUR
Cardinal Virtues as described by Plato: Prudence-Fortitude-Temperance-Justice,. Now this is all well and good, but how do these Greek virtues tie in with the Judeo-Christian beliefs? Simple, you’ll like this connection Mr.
. That would be through the FOUR
Rivers to Hell that Plato spoke of in the Phadeo
and were further expanded upon through Dante and Virgil. Not coincidently enough, these FOUR
rivers also correspond with the FOUR
Rivers that bind the Garden of Eden: The Pison, The Gihon, The Hiddekel, and the Euphrates. (the Garden, as you know is protected buy the sword of fire…hmmmmm).
Seasons dictate a mans (or womans, you misogynistic reader, you) life, and that can be linked to the FOUR
ages of the world: Gold, Silver, Bronze and Iron. (if you can’t see how Raiders, Doom, Crusade and Creation fits there, than maybe there is no hope for you, at this point. I can only spell out so much, before having to answer to superiors). The Journey (or Red Line: Joe Brody style) will take place across the FOUR
Land Continents after Pangaea: Europe, Asia, Africa and America. though not in that order
And to top it all off, this study of the Rule of Four, that I have alluded to in several post past: can be culminated “Da Vinci Code” Style though the Art of 1) Michelangelo’s Sculptures in Medici Chapel
, 2) Sally Fisher’s Allegory of Prudence
, 3) Giordano’s Rape of Europa
and the 4) Chaldean Calendar.
But now I digress, I have shared too much, though my friend “Jack” said it would be okay.
“Their all gonna laugh at you.” said Stephen Kings Siren, as I transcribed this tonight. But who knows. Maybe there is enough there above, to actually tie in several thousand years of diverse mythology, and history, to actually convince all you Raven Indy Film Fans (hmm, I see a pun in there) that perhaps there is something to this Final Fourth Film in the Indiana Jones Film Canon.
Or maybe I have had too much Grail Water.
