Hollywood doesn't want you to like the sun. Here is why.
Have you noticed how most villains in sci-fi movies are afraid of the sun?
From classics like Near Dark and Daughters of Darkness, to more recent flicks like 30 Days of Night and Daybreakers, the common thread is an existential aversion to sunlight.
In I AM Legend, the vampiric cannibalistic creatures are called Darkseekers and, as you might guess, they are vulnerable to sunlight. (Bonus question: What was it that created those creatures?)
In the first Matrix movie, Morpheus reveals that humans “scorched the sky,” and in the third sequel, agent Smith prevails over a dark city where it always rains. “You like what I’ve done with the place?” he asks. The 4th sequel follows the same dark, urban aesthetic.
In Sunshine, the sun malfunctions, freezing earth in a solar winter.
What most people don’t appreciate is that Hollywood’s agenda is only superficially about entertaining the masses. In Wag the dog, Stanley Motss explains:
“You know, you can't save the world. All you can do is try.”
“Ain't that the truth?” Conrad Brean nods in agreement.
“The purpose of movies like The Matrix, series like Black Mirror, and pretty much any Hollywood movie produced in the last few decades is for the architects of “our democracy” to tell you what they are about to do to you. The reason they tell you is because they need your consent. Without “choice” you would never consent to anyone undermining your interests. You would never allow anyone to harm or enslave you.”
With that in mind, it shouldn’t be much of a surprise when last October our benevolent authorities admitted they’ve been trying to block the sun — to fight global warming, of course.
But let’s change gears for a minute.
Do you remember Everybody’s Free To Wear Sunscreen, a song whose lyrics went viral through email in the late nineties?
The song dispenses some seemingly wise advice — don’t spend time on jealousy, don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, and so on. But over and above, it implores the youth to always wear sunscreen.
Oh, and do you remember this sunblock commercial in the 1990s Robocop movie?
Do you see the pattern here?
Why does Hollywood harbor such an obsession with the sun?
For millennia humans have thrived under the sun, without UV SPF 5-in-1 sunscreens, Aviator sunglasses, and NASA caps.
Our ancestors have always held reverence for the sun. It’s probably not by accident that sun sounds like son, pointing to the Son of God (a common pagan belief). In Greek, too, Ήλιος (sun) sounds the same as Υἱός (Son). The sun features as a god or deity in cultures like the Inca civilization, the Hindu religion, Norse mythology, and numerous belief systems dating back to the Neolithic age.
So why are modern humans so scared of the sun? Why do they have to apply layers of toxic chemicals on their skin before spending even a few minutes under natural sunlight?
“UV rays cause early aging,” mainstream experts keep saying. “They can also cause sunburns and other horrible things.”
Stop the presses:
Overdosing on anything — food, water, and sunlight — is not healthy or natural. Our predecessors had an intuitive understanding of how much is enough.
But they also ate better.
Case in point: I used to get sunburns throughout my youth but when I stopped eating processed foods, microwave meals, and anything with a barcode, those sunburns became a thing of the past. I can now enjoy the sun despite my skin being fair.
You won’t hear this from mainstream mouthpieces, but the moment you replace processed supermarket junk with chemical-free whole foods your skin will fare much better under the sun.
Why would scientists not know that?
Actually, they do. According to a 2004 NIH study, “micronutrients can act as UV absorbers.”
But at the end of the day it doesn’t matter what scientists know. All that matters is what their paymasters need. In 2022 Reuters had to employ their fact-check apparatus to make sure people don’t stop freaking out about the sun. Their verdict begins with, “There is no evidence to support claims that sunlight does not cause skin cancer . . .”
Forgive me for sounding consp1ratorial here but it would seem those people have an agenda against the sun.
Speaking of which, the skin is the most absorbent organ of the human body. It offers a direct route for all the chemical ingredients in sunscreen (not to mention cosmetics) they peddle to the masses. Reading mainstream press, however, it would seem sunscreen is the best thing since sliced bread. Here is an example of how they report on its effects (emphasis mine):
“As of now, there is no strong evidence that sunscreen harms human health and plenty of data to show that it helps prevent skin cancer.”
– TIME, August 2, 2021
Sounds wonderful, until you remember that absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. If you don’t look, you will not find. Simples.
The “no evidence” trope is well-known to most people so I won’t belabor the point too much. What is happening here is clear as day.
The architects of “our democracy” want us to be scared of the sun, scared of climate change, scared of germs and v1ruses, and scared of each other.
They want us demoralized.
How do you de-moralize the masses?
Morale comes from moral. The Greek word for moral is ethos. Ethos stands for character, custom, and habit. Religion, family, truth, beauty — those principles stand as moral pillars for individuals, families, and countries at large. Break those and you break the people. No wonder popular culture is all about decadence, atheism, meaningless sex, and all-around ugliness.
Which leads us back to the sun.
The sun symbolizes everything that is good in humanity. It’s no wonder that many religions converge on the removal of darkness.
‘Gu’ stands for the darkness of ignorance and ‘ru’ stands for the remover, the dispeller. Hence the guru is the light that dispels the darkness of ignorance and you are that light for me now.
– Krishnamurti, Dialogue 1 Saanen, Switzerland - 25 July 1969
Darkness is ignorance and sin. By definition, then, sun serves as a moral compass and as people’s morale. For many, sun is their savior, physically and metaphysically.
Without further ado, let’s look at how we can restore our connection to our Greatest ally:
Let’s start with the obvious. If they are trying to block the sun where you live; if there are lines on the sky; and if those in power have at any point prevented you from getting out of your home or 15-minute city, you probably need to move.
If your skin is sensitive to sunlight and you are prone to sunburns, start cleaning up your diet. Avoid seed oils and anything processed. Switch to whole foods, local and seasonal produce.
Throw away your sunscreen, commercial cosmetics, sprays of any sort, and pretty much anything with a barcode.
Bin your sunglasses. Let your eyes get used to natural light. Make eye contact with your fellow humans.
Watch the sunrise and sunset. This will regulate your sleep cycle and you will feel more rested throughout the day.
Bin your TV, Xbox, and PlayStation. Unsubscribe from Netflix, Apple TV, and Spotify. Spend more time outdoors, out in nature and under natural light.
Closer to bedtime, stay away from the blue light of smartphones and laptop displays. Nothing helps me fall asleep like reading an old-fashioned book before bed.
When out and about, keep your phone out-of-sight and preferably switched off. Instead of downcast, lift and widen your gaze. Take in your surroundings, acknowledge your fellow humans, the animals, trees, and everything else around you.
Bin your AirPods. Our ears are saturated with loud, artificial sounds, and desensitized to the richness and subtle melodies of birds, roosters, dogs, and the wind. Tune in to the sounds of your environment and refine your senses.
Delete your Instagram, OnlyFans, and TikTok accounts. Invest your time in friends and family. Restore your connection to the physical world.
Remember the adage, “your worst enemy is your best teacher”?
You don’t need to run away from Hollywood movies and Netflix shows. Instead, you can use them as practical counter indicators to better yourself.
Remember, there is no freedom without morality. Don’t let anyone compromise your morale, and your morals.
