Use Your Head

"How could someone fight at his side? Darken Rahl wants to rule all, be master of them all. How could they fight for him?"
The wizard leaned against the rock and looked over the hills as if he saw more there than there was. His tone was full of sorrow. "Because Richard, lots of people need to be ruled to be able to live. In their selfishness and greed, they see free people as their oppressors. They want a leader that will cut the bigger plants so the sun will reach them. They feel no plant can become bigger than the smallest one, so all plants get light. They'd rather receive a guiding light, no matter the fuel, than to light a candle themselves."
Some think that when Rahl wins he will smile at them and they will be rewarded, and so to win his favor they are as ruthless as him. Some are simply blind for the truth and fight for the lies they hear. And some notice, when that guiding light is burning, that they are chained, and then it's too late." Zedd stroked his sleeves smooth alongside his arms and sighed. "There have always been wars, Richard. Every war is a murderous battle between enemies. And yet no army ever went to the battlefield with the idea that the Creator had chosen the side of their enemy."
Richard shook his head. "It makes no sense."
"I'm quite certain Rahl's followers think us to be monsters, capable of anything. They will hear endless stories about the ruthless cruelty of their enemy. I'm sure that none of them knows much about Darken Rahl, except what has been told to them by Darken Rahl himself."
The wizard frowned, his intelligent eyes sharp. "Maybe it's a twisted display of logic, but that doesn't make it less threatening or lethal. Rahl's followers only have to crush us, they need not understand anything else. But if you want to win, against a stronger enemy, you will have to use your head."

Excerpt from Terry Goodkind's Sword of Truth: Wizard's first rule. Translated from dutch.

This has all happened before, and it will happen again. Maybe.

Penny Arcade comics resonating a lot of the synchrosphere, notably the Secret Sun, with catgirls and Hathori Hanzo. (And the Henge/Transforming into a woodblock is from Naruto).
What if we're all suffering from amnesia?

In the show Heroes, Nathan, following the show's writers, has lost his mind and started a full scale secret hunt for the Heroes. Nevermind his brother killed him in the future to prevent just that, Nathan has more of a thing for ambition than common sense, along with the writers.

Media propaganda, media eclipse and secret prisoner transfer and killing all part of The War on Terra. Terrorists eh, but there's something the government isn't sharing about the terrorists to the public. Maybe the war on terror, besides being lucrative, was a way of finding special people too? Perhaps, winging it, aliens that can shapeshift and look like humans? I can't say that with a straight face btw, but it's fun. Btw, am I the only one not satisfied with just a lot of weird symbolism? Let the show begin already.
Matt: Hiro, how did you get here? Did you get your powers back?
Hiro: No. I'm powerless. The hero's path is never easy.
Mohinder: If we stay here, we're dead. We have to keep moving.
Hiro: Yes. Save the others.
Mohinder: Where are they?
Hiro: I saw them running. Peter Petrelli, the cheerleader. It is our duty to save them.
Save the cheerleader, save the world. After all, without cheer, what is this place? Like a planet in an economic crisis or something, hah! Kill the cheerleader (lincoln, jfk, rfk, mlk, mx, lennon, gandhi, obama?) kill the world.

Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen Trailer

This year, they are back. Hiding among us. Ready to transform. Now it's too late.The invasion has begun. Again. Fear them. Or Not. Rayman 2 Raving rabbits lol. Sorry. Anyway this movie too resonating the Fallen Angels taking revenge.

Where else have I heard about these fallen angels recently? I remember, it wasn't such a long ass fucking time ago, in a town called Kickapoo.

Tenacious D - Kickapoo
[Jack Black (Narrator)]
A long ass fuckin' time ago, In a town called Kickapoo,
There lived a humble family religious through and through.
But yay there was a black sheep and he knew just what to do.
His name was young J.B. (JC? ;p or Joachim & Boaz?) and he refused to step in-line.
A vision he did see-eth (Seth? ;p) fuckin' rockin' all the time.
He wrote a tasty jam and all the planets did align

[Jack Black (Son)]
Oh the dragons balls were blazin' as I stepped into his cave, (kundalini masterin' or alien slaying)
Then I sliced his fuckin' cockles, With a long and shiny blade!
'Twas I who fucked the dragon, Fuckalize sing-fuckaloo!
And if you try to fuck with me, Then I shall fuck you too!
Gotta get it on in the party zone! I got to shoot a load in the party zone!
Gotta lick a toad in the party zone! Gotta suck a chode in the party zone!

[Meat Loaf (Father)]
You've disobeyed my orders, son, Why were you ever born?.
Your brother's ten times better than you, Jesus loves him more.
This music that you play for us comes from the depths of hell.
Rock and roll's The Devil's work, he wants you to rebel.
You'll become a mindless puppet; Beelzebub will pull the strings!
Your heart will lose direction, And chaos it will bring...

[Jack Black (Son)]
Dio (God) can you hear me? I am lost and so alone.
I'm askin' for your guidance. Won't you come down from your throne?
I need a tight compadre who will teach me how to rock.
My father thinks you're evil, but man, he can suck a cock.
Rock is not the Devil's work, It's magical and rad.
I'll never rock as long as I am stuck here with my dad

[Ronnie James Dio (Dio poster)]
I hear you brave young Jaybles, You are hungry for the rock.
But to learn the ancient method, sacred doors you must unlock.
Escape your father's clutches, And this oppressive neighborhood.
On a journey you must go, To find the land of Hollywood!
In The City of Fallen Angels (Los Fallen Angeles), where the ocean meets the sand,
You will form a strong alliance, and the world's most awesome band.
To find your fame and fortune, through the valley you must walk.
You will face your inner demons. Now go my son and rock!

[Jack Black (Narrator)]
So he bailed from fuckin' Kickapoo With hunger in his heart;
And he journeyed far and wide to find the secrets of his art;
But in the end he knew that he would find his counterpart.
Rock. Rah-ha-ha-ha-hock. Raye-yayayayaye-yock
I saw "The Day The Earth Stood Still" remake recently too, entertaining, preachy as hell. The human(government & corparation)s are treating their planet so badly! So an alien consciousness superior as fuck comes to Earth and what do the world governments think of? Throwing every weapon they have against it cause destroying is the only thing world governments are actually good at.
In the original, Klaathu hilariously gets shot at first sight by an American policeman at the end of the flick. He was different after all! ;p

In BSG, the Cylons and Humans are interconnected as anything can be. The ship Battlestar Galactica, now will need to be infused with a Cylon substance to glue together the cracks. Talk about symbiosis. All this after another uprising led by one-legged Gaeta as heavy resistance is inevitable before heavy change. And of course, they final Cylons have seen this all before and are starting to remember. Especially Anders (dutch for Different).

In Lost, time has become a joke, dreams significant (as experiences of other time streams), and the chosen ones need to return to the island. Electromagnetic Faraday is a major figure there, a day being far, time and space acting weird.

And in Fringe, a Parallel universe is colliding with ours or something.

All coincidences, I'm sure. This has all happened before, and it will happen again. Maybe. Stay Tuned. (PC I'm posting on is on its last breaths too, so bear with me.)
