A recent article in Vanity Fair magazine about George Lucas' newest installment in the Indiana Jones series of movies, INDIANA JONES AND THE KINGDOM OF THE CRYSTAL SKULLS, presents some tantalizing information about the eagerly awaited continuation of the famous Indiana Jones character, a somewhat scruffy archaeologist. According to the Vanity Fair article, part of the movie is shot on a set evoking images and thoughts of Area 51, and its shoot location - Deming, New Mexico - evoke similar thoughts of Roswell. And such evocations of ET and extra-terrestrial advanced technology may be, according to the article, very deliberate.

But where do Crystal Skulls fit in? Well, hang on. According to the Vanity Fair article, the exact skull in question is an ancient artifact but very obviously not human. Even more suggestively, the movie is set in the 1950s, with a somewhat older Indie Jones now battling not Nazis, but Communists in the form of a female MGB agent. With this, Lucas renews a theme enunciated in two of the three previous Indiana Jones Movies (Raiders of the Lost Ark and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade), namely, that certain world powers in the control of certain genocidal ideologies are making a deliberate, concerted, and very covert effort to recover such such lost artifacts and, with them, the ancient high technology they may represent. Well, for readers of my Giza Death Star Trilogy or Cosmic War: Interplanetary Warfare, Modern Physics, and Ancient Texts, to say nothing of Reich of the Black Sun and SS Brotherhood of the Bell, this theme will be nothing new, and would appear to have some documentation in evidence of it. And the movie certainly seems to promise all sorts of symbolic hints that something like this is going on. For example, one scene purportedly takes place in New Haven, Connecticut, home, of course, to Yale University. The obvious resonances to the whole Skull and Bones, esoteric connection is once again clearly, though subtly, in play.

Lucas thus appears to be closing the circle with the other great thematic output of his film production career: the whole six episode Star Wars saga, with its theme of an ancient war in "a galaxy far, far away," a war fought against an evil empire and its very high tech planet busting technologies. With Indie Jones' "ET crystal skull" - which it is implied contains "information" - he is deliberately seeding an off-world extra-terrestrial component into the archaeological quest for ancient high technology that the Indiana Jones character represents. Does this mean that Lucas deliberately intends to close the circle between the two themes - ancient cosmic interplanetary warfare and earthbound archaeological quests for lost technology - more tightly? Can we anticipatenfurther episodes in the Indiana Jones saga where this connection is made even more explicit? Perhaps. Only time and Mr. Lucas will tell. But my money's on the fact that he probably already knows about the connection (see my other article on this site about the mythological influences on Mr. Lucas). And who knows WHAT books he's been reading lately...

And oh yes.....there's one final connection between these two unlikely threads of crystal skulls and off-world interplanetary wars, a connection I mentioned first in my book, THE GIZA DEATH STAR DESTROYED, and that is the curious Cherokee legend about there being THIRTEEN such skulls, each one representing one of the twelve planets in our own solar system, plus one "master crystal skull" representing a sort of unity among all the others. If that sounds vaguely familiar, it should, for the only other place one encounters such an enumeration of local celestial bodies is...Sumeria, with its own rich mythological tradition of an ancient cosmic war....

Keep that dial tuned right here...

    Their have always been some truth behind the Indiana Jones movies the Nazis were looking for the stuff mention in the Lost Ark and the Last Crusade even the Crystal Skulls would have interest them it is fascinating that you have to go to fiction of all kinds to tell the .truth

  2. Christine on March 13, 2011 at 11:49 am

    Here is a map of the history of science fiction from aristophenes to WALL-E
    as it is described. I don’t know how accurate it is, but it purports to show
    all kinds of influence and cross fertilization of ideas, and maybe this would
    be of use to someone. Looks like an octopod or something.

  3. mike perry on February 24, 2011 at 3:29 pm

    dr. Farrell, this may seem either too insignificant or too large a secret but i attempted posting this on fairbanks campx training videos for canada and got ‘ERROR” or COMMENT BEING LAUGHED AT MOMENTARILY,,

    what do you suppose they were trying to tell me?

  4. Justina on January 20, 2011 at 2:02 am

    A thought regarding movies and leaks, but in this case, I think
    the leak is some porosity of minds, someone accidentally
    picking up on something while fantasizing to make the movie
    idea and script.

    Two movies with horrific monsters have one thing in common.

    Alien, and Pitch Black, both have details about the planets that
    point to them being “planetoids” or large moons, circling a
    Saturn like planet.

    In other words, Titan. Hmmmmmm.

    Alien specifies that they are headed for a planetoid in Zeta Reliculi,
    which was probably thrown in there because by then, the Betty and
    Barney Hill incident was public knowledge.

    But when they get there, it is circling a planet like Saturn.

    Have you any dreams you’d like to sell?
    I thought you didn’t pay much attention to the movies, just the odd Disney movie. Do you think someone will ever make L. Ron Hubbard’s movie, “Revolt in the Stars” or make a movie based on Katherine Neville’s book, “The Eight” ? Curious.

    • Joseph P. Farrell on January 11, 2011 at 10:58 am

      As far as I know only one of Hubbard’s books was ever made into a movie, starring John Travolta. I cannot remember the name of it however.

    Interested in your take on the movie now that you have seen it.

  7. Justina on January 1, 2011 at 6:52 pm

    “THIRTEEN such skulls, each one representing one of the twelve planets in our own solar system, plus one “master crystal skull” representing a sort of unity among all the others.”

    One skull to rule them all,
    one skull to find them,
    one skull to bring them all,
    and in the darkness bind them,
    in the land of Mordor where the shadows lie?

    heh heh.

    NOTE: Some people who haven’t seen Kingdom of the Crystal Skull may consider the below statement a “movie spoiler”.

    Concerning the movie Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, a point that may be worthy of note is the part of the movie where its shown that the “aliens” were not aliens at all but interdimensional beings.
    Initially, George Lucas wished to have aliens, but Steven Speilberg didn’t feel it would fit with the setting. So Lucas decided on having them be interdimensional beings instead. Which, in my opinion, was a quite good choice. Interdimensional beings are, after all, a more original idea than aliens.
    If there truly are grains of truth in Indiana Jones, what significance could lie behind such concepts?

    In any case, the idea that things like Star Wars and Indiana Jones contain grains of truth is truly fascinating.

  9. Andrew H. on May 24, 2008 at 1:22 am

    Dr Farrell,

    Do please give your thoughts on The Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls whenever time permits.

    I think there’s a missing / unspoken factor in why some technology isn’t admitted to, and regrettably it’s paradoxical in its implementation.

    Some of you might have heard of such things as the inventors of various technologies regretting bringing them to the people, because they are misused or their application makes life that bit more insufferable (I wholeheartedly agree..). I think The Problem is that type of catch-22; it doesn’t seem possible to introduce technology without it getting into the wrong hands (either at the everyday consumer level, or in terms of it being part of the nation vs nation arms races), and now that we have a world running on non-renewables, all that free / renewable energy is going to do is extend the manner in which the current technology is largely being used.

    When you have a technology that is non-polluting, highly renewable or free, and quiet, it does feel that you’ve been spiritually blackmailed into providing it, purely because it’s adoption was originally rejected – and if implemented back when it ought to have been from the outset, there’d have been no chances of it going towards anything undesirable.

    UK TV (Channel 5) had a recent showing of a documentary on real-life Indiana Jones’, and it featured Otto Rahn.

    The clips of the new Indy film actually looked very good, and like the previous films. Same kind of look.

  12. Christian de Coninck Lucas on April 9, 2008 at 8:05 am

    Considering that there will even e be a Roswell tie-in, it certainly seems that George and Steve are back in “70’s truth mode”.

    Wheter there will actually be a connection to the Star Wars universe (Hoagland would love that vis-a-vis his robotic skull on the moon)…sounds like a stretch but those guys could probably pull it off.

  13. zupakomputer on April 8, 2008 at 4:46 pm

    One of the things a recent Disclosure missive warned about was exactly that – the announcement of a form of a disclosure, ie – the staged kind, designed to make people feel as helpless as possible.

    Of course, anyone that is still gulliable enough to actually believe that the govt/news/media and so forth really represents What Is; well it’s no wonder they’re sort of setting themselves up for a fall, out of spiritual laziness more than anything, and an unwillingness to acknowledge how obviously wrong so much in the world is. That said, if they’re all running around like the proverbial headless chicken – it still makes life even more hell for those of us who do know better to whatever extent.
    We all have to live in the same places, use the same facilities.

    The use of the ‘duck’ term interests me as that oft crops up in mind-control meme viruses; were you trying to imply he is perhaps an incarnation of someone, say a politician who is known to be very much aware of blackops, by any chance?

    He doesn’t have ‘the moustache’ either anyway, so that’d be why whatever he says about ‘sheep aircraft’ isn’t going to go very far…

  14. Joseph Farrell on April 5, 2008 at 4:45 am

    Dear P-Coop:

    An enjoyable and humorous post, and, I happen to agree with you, I don’t expect much, if anything at all, to come from those projects.

    Best wishes,
    Joseph Farrell

  15. p-coop on April 4, 2008 at 2:16 am

    The new Indy movie sounds interesting, and as for possibly, distantly connecting Star Wars to Jones is an interesting stretch, but not entirely impossible. And if anyone can pull it off it’s Lucas. Now as to how we went from Wars and Indy to Dr. Greer and the Disclosure Project, I have to applaud those select few who believe that Dr. Greer actually has the capability to to pull off such a feat. Personally, I believe that we’ll get disclosure when the sky is darkened by large irregular shapes, and an embarrassed President suddenly shows up on the TV, embarrassed and scratching the back of his/her head, and states that while the Government of these United States has been blowing smoke up the ass of the American Taxpayers for so many years, we’ve secretly utilized alien tech to secretly build a fleet of less than bad ass ships and got our butt handed to us in an unintentional interstellar war that we accidentally started through the misinterpretation of a friendly communication, and that the shade that the world is now questioning is from our new MASTERS. Good evening, good night and good luck.
    As for Dr. Greer’s, The Orion Project, sounds interesting, but for all the man’s obvious intelligence, he’s trying to reinvent the wheel, when there are a lucky few, who have moved out of the country, and have surprisingly accomplished their goals, that meet or exceed the standards he has set. In the immortal word of Plucky Duck, Ducky go down the hole, and I think that where both the Disclosure and The Orion Project are both doomed to go.

    This is a really timely thing to have, after the death of the greatest science fiction writer of time Arthur C. Clark passing
    George Lucas must be an avid Coasttocoast listener!
    Can this gets any better then this?
    this kind of “future” looks very bright!

  17. patrick on April 1, 2008 at 10:35 pm

    it’s gonna be tough to even come close to the quality and originality of the original Indiana Jones’

  18. zupakomputer on March 16, 2008 at 7:33 pm

    btw I neither endorse any views such as the ones on renewables, especially corn ethanol, that are at the Orion Project website – what it says about growing corn needing artificial fertiliser isn’t true at all, plus it doesn’t even acknowledge that biofuels people never recommended using corn alone, or in whole, to produce oil or alcohol from.

  19. zupakomputer on March 16, 2008 at 2:55 pm

    re: my comment that’s still ‘awaiting moderation’ above;

    well the radio interview is back online today again, with a slightly different webpage design.

    I must stress, again, I am not directing you or anyone else to the radio interview in the way you seem to think – the UN meeting part was just a small portion of the discussion and as Dr. Greer says in the interview, it has no connection to the Disclosure Project nor the Orion Project to get the free-energy devices up & running.

    I don’t really care whether anyone believes in aliens or not; Discloure has the best chance of getting done what the whole point of any of this is about – getting the devices up and running and therefore removing the whole aspect of any manipulations and behind-the-scenes mind-control & continuance of lies as to what technologies are already available.

  20. Joseph Farrell on March 16, 2008 at 2:11 am

    Dear Zupakomputer:

    I haven’t had the time yet to check out the links you mentioned. Given that Mr. Hoagland’s UN briefing was back in the 1990s, however, I rather suspect that they are not the same people mentioned in his video of that presentation. I plan to post an article “for the record” soon on my take on the whole recent “Secret UN UFO Disclosure Briefing”.

    Joseph Farrell

  21. zupakomputer on March 15, 2008 at 5:59 pm

    Found the other link that was on the radio interview page, which hasn’t been censored since I posted it yesterday.

    It is indeed the name you mentions website; as I already commented, I don’t know anything about him myself. I know about CSETI & Diclosure and know they are sound.

    Do any of the people mentioned have to do with any of Hoagland’s UN briefings?,

  22. zupakomputer on March 15, 2008 at 5:44 pm

    I can’t check out how the radio interviewer is, as They seem to have censored the website since yesterday – if you’d listened to the interview you’d have heard who is doing that kind of thing.
    Probably the ‘weapons in space’ people and the ones that forced CSETI to remove mentions of the Clintons meeting with them from a recent press release, and the ones harassing recent witnesses of UFOs (and military interceptions of) in Texas.

    It had an article about the UNs recent meetings on the UFO disclosure topic.

    It was an interview with Dr. Steven Greer, who is bang on the facts when it comes to free-energy supression and ET info.

    I’m not sure about the radio host or the general website itself; don’t know anything about them.

    Greer runs the Discloure Project, and is just getting another project going which aims to get the zero point energy devices up and running,

  23. Dr. Joseph P. Farrell on March 15, 2008 at 3:15 am

    Dear Zupakomputer:

    Your comment mentioned the website of Dr. Michael Salla, I believe. Unfortunately, I do not place much stock in his analyses of things and some of the claims he makes about recent events.


    Joseph Farrell

  24. zupakomputer on March 14, 2008 at 12:24 pm

    You have to listen to this !

    right up to date overview of supression of ET & free energy technology, and very good news about developments in free energy and over-unity technology.

    (includes info on very recent UN meeting on UFO disclosure)

  25. zupakomputer on March 12, 2008 at 4:49 pm

    New Haven CT is also where the first telephone exchange station was set up. Guess who was born there too; I’ll give you a clue, their name sounds a bit like the name of the man that set up the exchange..

    The crystal skull that was recovered from a Mayan archaeological dig (though of course, that’s under debate by some) went through a lot of hard science tests, and they concluded that whatever technology made it isn’t a technology that is known of. There’s coverage of the tests done in a book on the skulls by Ceri Louise Thomas and Chris Morton.

    How Matrix-y can it get: crystals = CPUs, phones = how most people access the internet (inc. cable)

  26. eric swan on March 12, 2008 at 1:05 am

    I think you would be interested in a blog that specializes in synchromysticism and has a take on the crystal skull that would be interesting ..
