I don't get it but I get it. (Don't understand it but I feel it.)

Well, I am pretty sure a Jesus/Ra mashup was not an event "of the past decade that have shaped our world," but I didn't catch every event since 2002.

It was pretty pretty and pretty long. I didn't find it NSFW; that was Anubis, not a nudist....

Holy moly.

Reminds me of going to watch modern dance: obviously there's a lot of symbolism going on here, no clue what it's supposed to mean.

Beautiful imagery in any case.

I liked it, though when it was finished I felt like I was supposed to write an essay discussing the imagery and symbolism, and I wasn't sure what the theme was going to be.

Just link that livejournal explanation of prometheus, I think it would work for this too. This one had less plot holes though.

Really enjoyed it.

I want Firebreathing Third-Eye Jesus to pick up a following. That's a deity worth watching.

Wow. That's an impressive piece of work. Thanks.

If you enjoy deities with super-powers. I urge you to give Hinduism a chance. Gods/Goddesses often have many arms and/or fused with animal parts/powers.

- Lord Ganesh is elephant headed.
- Goddess Durga has 18 arms and sits on a tiger.
- Hanuman, the monkey God.
- Lord Shiva, wears a cobra as a necklace, he also has a trident.

Hinduism is awesome! All are welcome. :)

Also, I'm not seriously trying to proselytize. Just a comment on the fact that Hinduism has some diverse and unique deities.

I'm aware of Hinduism's pantheon of superfriends; for me, they're definitely a better spark for the imagination than distant, mysterious old "I Am Who Am".
I just think that Firebreathing Third-Eye Jesus is pretty spiffy; he's a deity even a non-theist like myself wouldn't mind wearing on a t-shirt.

Also, re: Lord Shiva:
Did he also walk forty-seven miles of barbed wire?
Does he have a tombstone hand and a graveyard mind?

not that it actually offends me, but did I see a star of David underneath the statue of liberty... jew york?

The visuals and the overall atmosphere are really cool, but the symbolism is not particularly creative or subtle, and a little too New Age-y for my taste. Eh. Still worth watching.

I woke up with this music in my head. I wonder what I was dreaming.

The Egyptian pantheon had the animal motif going too. I think they're mostly unemployed these days except for Bast, who's probably gotten a boost from all the kitteh worship on the internet.
