The Man in the High Castle: season 2



Happy to see that The Man in the High Castle has returned to Amazon for a second season. For those who aren't familiar with the show, it's ...

an American dystopian alternative history web television series produced by Amazon Studios, Scott Free, Headline Pictures, Electric Shepherd Productions and Big Light Productions. The series is loosely based on the 1962 novel of the same name by American science fiction author Philip K. Dick. The story is an alternative history of the world in which the Axis powers won World War II. The United States has been partitioned into three parts: The Japanese puppet state Japanese Pacific States, which comprises the former United States west of the Rocky Mountains; a Nazi puppet state that comprises the eastern half of the former United States; and the Neutral Zone that acts as a buffer between the two.

I'm watching the second episode of season 2 and in it one of the characters, Nobusuke Tagomi, the Trade Minister of the Pacific States of America, reads a suppressed book at the library, William James' The Varieties of Religious Experience, to help decipher a vision he had. He says to the librarian ...

[W]hen one is troubled by the reality of this world, it can be comforting to consider other possibilities, even if those possibilities disturb us, so strong is the desire to escape the tyranny of consciousness and the narrow boundaries of our perceptions, to unlock the prisons of thought in which we trap ourselves, all in the hope that a better world or a better version of ourselves, perhaps, may lie on the other side of the door. - The Road Less Traveled

I think this is why I keep reading and watching fiction. Though I know if must be impossible, still I hope that somehow I can use it to realize a better version of life, of myself, than what presently exists ... trying to inhabit an alternative reality.

Here's a trailer for season 2 ...

Here's a trailer for season 2 ...
"The uploader has not made this video available in your country." That's the message that I got . There's really nothing to worry about, I just thought that I should let you known about "IT".

When sinner vic is troubled by the reality of this world, he also finds comfort in considering other possibilities, even if those possibilities might disturb me, myself and "I". As a matter of spiritual, fictional reality concern, sinner vic sometimes tries to imagine that Victor was actually created in The Image of GOD (Good Old Dad). sinner vic says that "IT" makes his so called 81% cells that he thinks he owns... well "IT" makes him feel a LOT better by believing that Victor's "nine teen per sent age" cells will some day become a reality and he'll be in charge. Just try to imagine sinner vic says if every one of Victor's body cells XY become one with the ability to con troll, "I" mean control and eventually clone each one of those cells as "ONE UNIT" in other words, turning XY into A... Hey wouldn't that be great is what sinner vic keeps telling my Jesus Cells. sinner vic keeps wondering why my so called Jesus cells keep fighting what sinner vic's gods considers being good for all. He also wonders why do these Jesus Cells believe that each and everyone will have their own Soul, Spirit within a Flesh, where eventually The Soul will become the Child of a 'Heavenly Father', The spirit will someday team UP with a 'Holy Spirit' and our Flesh will in Time become a child of 'Jesus'. Just imagine a three in "ONE" body which can divide themselves making the expression "Beep ME, ME and ME UP Scotty"... OK so we still have a few things to iron out but all of US (USUAL SINNERS), "I" mean us gods could get there a LOT faster if those Jesus cells of Victor would simply co-operate a little more! What concerns us gods is that Victor's Jesus Cells keep telling our godly cells that in "TIME" each one of Victor's Cells who fall, "I" mean follow "Jesus" could be in charge of their own Galaxies and and............................................................................................................and............................................................................................................and...

END! END! END! END YA SAY sinner vic? DON'T BE LIKE THAT! BE NICE NOW!

GO FIGURE!?

WHO'S LAUGHING?

Long story short CRYSTAL, as usual, you've got to keep, "I" mean take all of what sinner vic says with a grain of salt, in other words, "Stay Salty" while reading Victor, "I" mean sinner vic's stuff. LOL

Merry Christmas and if I don't visit until next year... Have a Happy New Year also.

God Bless you and yours
