ARE MIKE'S WORKS REFLECTED IN REFLECTIONS?
If so how many and which & also from whence did these views come i.e. was Mike aware of the topics in this video & their relevance prior to being involved in it's creation or did he purely learn from it?
One thing I think we must take into consideration is that during Mike's early life was the period of the awakening of the Hippy era when the youth was waking up to cosmological ideas like the realisation of the fact that we and everything around us is made from star dust & similar ideas that were filtering through to the masses, especially those who mixed in the circles of university students & what were often labeled drop outs or the people creating certain types of music especially some folk & popular music of the times.
I think a good example of Mike having a grasp of these ideas prior to his involvement in the documentary is the album Children of the Sun which is a very deeply symbolic idea for the time & thus may point to Mike's music being made with deeper message meaning than purely music for music's sake or financial reward. If we consider this possibility then in order to find out what Michael's beliefs might have contained or been influenced by at this time I feel it would be good to take a look at those who had been around him and what their views were at the time, this part of his life has much mist around it but it may well be the era that holds the answers.
I do believe that Michael's life & his works are not one of a frivolous nature i.e. he is not at all happy unless he feels he is involved in creating work which contains a deep and meaningful message, in my mind Michael is the Michael Angelo of music he is a true artist with highly symbolic Da Vinci or philosophical ideas within his works. Some of the problems in bringing these ideas & questions to a forum like this are that this is not like writing a book were the reader will start at page one and hopefully read to the last, i.e. if you read a post on another topic you may well arrive at this post & say to yourself "oh no it is that person with those weird ideas, they are the ones who think Mike is GOD" well first let me assure you this is certainly not the case, I/we are purely interested in looking at & discovering what Michael has been encoding in his works & via a understanding of this as a whole trying to reveal or work out what it is that he believes in so deeply that he wishes to share it with us.
In my eyes & in the eyes of those who have been involved in working on this so far, we see an awful lot of deeply symbolic messages in his work & I know that it can be extremely disturbing if you are a fan of this maestro, out there on your own wondering if you are all alone in what you see, so this is one of my main drives in bringing our views into the open so you will know you are not alone in your wondering as we were before finding each other. Readers of this who do not wonder in this way about the possibility of the maestro's work having any deeper meaning than you already are sure you understand, this post is not written for you please just accept this or open your mind to the possibility that there may be more to it than you already thought you knew & read on with an open mind.
The aim of all that we try to put before you is to point out the features of his work that one may at first glance have missed the meaning of or not spotted or have ever come across, maybe some things you have seen have left you in confusion, or you did not know that there could be deeper meanings to some of the images you have seen. Possibly you have missed some of the things that would only be noticed if you go frame by frame or note by note through his whole work as we have done on the visual side & then added all these things together. Individually some things make little sense but the whole picture is a totally different view.
We can not be sure of what Michael is showing to us in that there is so much & we may not have yet noticed everything, maybe the things that fill in the holes are yet to come in order to see the whole or fully understand the all but we do feel we can say that all of what we have seen could have the following possibilities SO FAR:-
( 1 ) IT IS ALL COINCIDENTAL. Very unlikely but some things could be explained this way.
( 2 ) We have misinterpreted some of the symbolism & thus we have come to the wrong conclusion, yet in most circumstances we will be only suggesting what we feel are the most likely possible conclusions & therefore you can draw your own if any.
( 3 ) All Michael's work does have deep meaning but he is deluded and therefore answers to mysteries do not stand in succession in his works or if this is not so that he really does have a bag of secrets and if so has he already shown to us what is in it but have yet to understand or believe in it.
( 4 ) If what he shows us has meaning and truth then is he just a wise & gifted mysterious teacher or does he point us to believe that he feels the gifts he has are God given does he feel\think he has a divine gift, or do we believe he has?
( 5 ) These things could all be a clever, elaborate hoax maybe he is playing a joke on us in his lyrics, artwork & games implying there is a bag of secrets just to keep us interested & guessing this is of course a possibility that we must consider yet I do not see Mike in this way so I doubt this is the answer.
( 6 ) Is Michael attempting to point us towards the God he has found and answers to life's mysteries that he sees in science or do we feel he has been guided to these answers by a heavenly source & do we believe him or in him, i.e. should we put our faith in his knowing the truth.
IN BRIEF:- 1T IS 1, COINCIDENTAL 2, MISINTERPRETED 3, IT HAS MEANING OR NO MEANING (i.e. there is or is not a bag of secrets). 4, MIKE IS WISE! or a FOOL, he is a man who either thinks he is just a normal man with thoughts to share or maybe he thinks or knows he is in touch with something divine (& has been given a divine message) or he is unsure what he is & this could explain his troubles, i.e. why he has been so disturbed and secretive in and about his works & life, laughing off awkward questions and not liking to be asked for reasons WHY!. 5, JOKE or\& EVIL HOAX, I really hope this is not so.
6, RELIGIOUS or SCIENCE or both & if both does what he shows us point to belief in GOD or to our own GoOoD as in the good in us all, or does he hint at a divine internal or external intervention he wants us to realise is to come & shows it to us in the highly prophetic images that we see in the Let There Be Light video, which he clarifies in the video he made about it's creation & what we see in it, i.e. the great awakening of the human mind, that brings into being our demons & angels.
To sum up:- If after reading and looking at all we write here and in other topics about his work you do not see that any of it has meaning to you in the way we present it, then this will mean one of these things;-
1, I have failed to be clear in what I showed you. 2, You have not been in the right mind in order to see. 3, There was nothing there to see in the first place & Mike was wrong in having these beliefs. 4, We, you think, have missed his point & you see another. In the end all these are in our minds an acceptable outcome as I and the others in the group are not here to say you must believe what we suggest the meanings might be, we are only wishing to point out what there is to see and consider & suggest some of the ways in which it may be interpreted or might all fit together.
