At this time we will respond to the people who have requested us to explain our opinions, views and interpretation concerning the film titled "Koyannisqatsi" by Godfrey. We hope no offense will result.
First, let us define briefly the word Koyannisqatsi, it can be expressed in many ways. It is a charm or a power of temptation to induce a change in life to new ways from the old. Inducing charmed people into power and wealth without regard to the means. Charming people into believing an Army and weapons will make peace. Charming people into immorality, with sex opposing the natural laws. Charming the people into believing that there is nothing wrong in abusing the earth and the universe. You name it for you are living in it.
Our opinion is, since each of us understands through a different level of knowledge, no doubt not everyone can receive the meaning. Since the film is based on Hopi prophecy, understanding can be difficult for those who are unfamiliar with, or have only a limited knowledge of Hopi prophecy. However, the film is good and inspiring because it is intended to make people aware of the ways we live today and to be cautious of their way of behavior.
Our views: We look at the film from a spiritual point of view. As if it were speaking through the mouth of the Creator and his Assistants. Reminding us of our past history and the mistakes we made in our past worlds. That through our cleverness we destroyed our good ways of life and the land. They pity the human race, that we have not learned from our past history and are gradually drifting back toward a doomsday. They have watched our activities in that we are living extremely fast exciting lives. Living in confusing and dangerous days with weapons of death and destruction spotted over the face of the earth, believing that this act would bring peace to the world.
They see in our hearts a great plan to fulfill our desires. The plan is like a drama or play. As they perceive us the people of all nations will be the actors or players, we will be positioned and readied so that the drama is in order before one of the nations will signal for the curtain to rise. This will be our world's last act. That is unless you wake up and set your course away from "Koyannisqatsi."
Herein we attempt to interpret the meaning of what we saw through the vision focused on the film "Koyannisqatsi." It is intended to tell the audience through the mouth of our Great Creator of our past and of today's world. Here He speaks, "My dear children, I am the Creator and your Father. Beside Me are My Assistants, with their blessings you are what you are today. We are among you always in spirit and are watching over you. We saw in your hearts a great ambition. We appear here to warn you once more. We see you straying away from the Original Path which we bestowed on you. Your minds and actions are gradually drifting into folly, you must find a way back to the original path.
"You have journeyed afar to all parts of the land and have explored the unique features of the landscapes. You were inspired by the natural beauty of the scenery, you Iooked upon it with pleasure. You were awed by how attractive and beautiful it stands. You gave whispers of thanks to the Maker so others who come will share the scenic landscape with joy and happiness.
"Sadly, My children, you did not understand. These unique formations are not created for your pleasure, they are there for certain purposes. They are the reminders of the past, the mistakes of the wrong past deeds of man. They are the symbols of penalty, punishment received. It is up to you. If you have received this message and revise and remove the faults you created, We will give time to you. Otherwise there will be no more.
"We saw the conflict of Nations against Nations, evil people against the people who saw the consequences fast approaching. We saw the mystic fog covering the planet. We see the world leaders with tongues that deceive you into following them and in believing that they will bring peace with weapons and mighty armies. You are abusing the earth with your powerful tools. You are abusing the natural order of the soil for your own profit from the crops it produces. In many ways have you violated the earth. Above all the powerful weapons are in your hands which will doom the world to a likeness of the moon. We too have weapons that no man on earth will tame. We leave you now to the hour of your decision and judgment."
To some people the above words may seem childish and have only a thread of truth, so that it would be foolish to either believe or disbelieve. It would also be equally foolish to reject the words out of your mind even though it may give you a creepy feeling.
