A friend of mine got me interested in watching Season 10 of last year's resurrection of the X-Files. Having hesitated till now, perhaps it was a good thing, after having undertaken my journey to this point on my still ongoing Futurist Apocalypse How efforts. Season 10 had just 6 episodes and Season 11 has just started. For those familiar with the original show, it was a mixture of content, with some episodes being relatively independent of all the others, where FBI agents Dana Scully and Fox Mulder would investigate odd matters that might be hoaxes or some otherwise disconnected paranormal phenomenon. Then, by contrast, there was the subplot that was sown throughout the balance of the shows, regarding a shadow government cabal that had made connection (Roswell) with space aliens, and were receiving technical input from them on such as genetic hybridization of humans, but the ultimate agenda was never made clear, at least from my POV. Importantly for what showed up for Season 10, we must recall the brief spin-off series for the Lone Gunmen characters, where many are aware that one episode showed the Lone Gunmen watching a TV set where a plane crashes into one of the WTC towers, ... before 9/11/2001. Before going further, I should note that the three Season 10 episodes (2, 3, and 4) that were of typically disconnected (somewhat stand-alone) 'horror' entertainment variety got very high ratings, while the (Chris Carter written and directed) episodes that had the conspiracy subplot 'mytharc' were panned. What is this telling us? Ever since The X-Files: I Want to Believe debuted in theaters, there was talk of a third X-Files movie to wrap-up the series' remaining storylines. However, for years these talks never resulted in action until on March 24, 2015, Fox announced that the series would return as a short-format event series with six episodes. After the season aired, it received largely mixed reviews from critics. The second, third, and fourth episodes were met with mostly positive comments, with "Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster" receiving overwhelmingly positive comments. Conversely, the first, fifth, and sixth episodes were largely derided by critics. The mythology episodes, in particular, were poorly received. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_X-Files_(season_10) BTW, as I understand it, the two intermediary X-File feature movies did not contain the conspiracy subplot. Curiously, Season 10 episodes 1 and 6 were named "My Struggle" 1 and 2 respectively, and is it coincidence that My Struggle translates to Mein Kampf? It is hard to see any direct character link to Adolf Hitler, however Season 11, episode 1 is named My Struggle 3, and the Smoking Man alludes to having played a strong role in important historical events including with the Nazi's. We then see various scenes from such as the JFK assassination, the recent white nationalist marches, Donald Trump in his bombast, etc.. So, the dots have indeed been connected to Hitler in this fashion, much like I do in my Trump thread. Linking to the infamous Lone Gunmen episode, in episode 1 of Season 10, in the middle of Mulder's expository account of matters, bringing us up-to-date since the end of the series in 2002, we are also given a scene of the WTC towers on 9/11, and quickly followed by a claim that 9/11 was a prelude to WWIII. Joel McHale plays an alt-media role (Tad O'Malley) like Alex Jones and has made contact with Scully and Mulder, bringing them back together and back to work for the FBI. O'Malley is convinced that there is a huge conspiracy involving a shadow government (the Deep State?). At this time, Mulder recounts to them all that he has come to realize that he has been duped about the whole alien matter. It seemed to me that we were left a little bit up in the air about this, but this confusion gets resolved, or does it? Are the aliens inventing the biotech real - or just a cover story? The biotech is real in any case. By the time we get to episode 6 we learn that the Smoking Man (who is really Mulder's genetic father - which we learned in the original series) has been involved with a cabal of elite humans to incorporate 'alien' technology to implant disease pathogens in humans, under the guise of vaccines for common diseases like measles, and such. These implanted trojan horse diseases are long kept in sleeper mode since the 50's and 60's, until microwaves and chemtrail disbursed aluminum wakes them up (in episode 6), to create a global pandemic. A pandemic of apocalyptic proportions. This 'alien' technology is named the Spartan Virus, and it seems that the 'aliens' had Malthusian concerns about humanity, having watched us for a long, long time. They also provided the human cabal with the protection against the Spartan Virus diseases, via DNA code that code be spliced into the Chosen One's DNA. We also find out that the Smoking Man has been living in Spartanburg, SC. Cute. At some point, I forget where, Tad O'Malley makes a comment that 3 different human DNA strands seem to curiously originate at the same time during the Bronze Age. I need to revisit this. In any case, I have noted that the Trojan War, which the Spartans were central in, effectively signaled the end of the Bronze Age. (And End of Time in its own right.) As part of an experiment, back in the original series, Scully had been abducted and provided with this protective DNA, but not so with Mulder. The Smoking Man had also surreptitiously impregnated Scully with his own DNA which had also been spliced with some alien DNA, making Scully's son a hybrid, with special powers. This aspect is apparently going to be played out in the coming episodes of Season 11. Note here, that we have the typology for the Virgin Birth, were Scully had been impregnated, unbeknownst to her, while the Smoking Man was playing God. We are already being informed that Scully's son will play some form of salvic role, albeit that in episode 6 Scully and another female FBI agent (both women are also scientist MDs) have found a means to provide everyone with the alien DNA protection, because they discovered the DNA patch in Scully. But for some reason, Scully will have to find her son (William), whom Mulder and Scully had put into adoption, for his own protection, so as to harvest stem cells that are needed to save Mulder - separately from other humanity that is saved by Scully's DNA patch. Also, it is later made clear that William will find Scully and Mulder. So, what about episode 5? Well, interestingly, on the surface it appears to be more one of the disconnected episodes, as it doesn't involved 'the' conspiracy, except for 'a' conspiracy of Islamic suicide bombers in Texas. Two men attack an Islamic(?) building known as the Ziggurat. Late in the episode these bombers' leader and their group are found to operate out of the Babylon Hotel. Today, many feel that with the Biblical story of Nimrod that the actual Tower of Babel is the actual Ziggurat of Babylon. After the whole cell of bombers is captured at the end of the show, Mulder waxes Biblical with Scully and they discuss how God decided to split mankind up and give them separate languages, thus ensuring they would not get along (culture wars) in the future. Scully ends by saying that we all need to find a common language. When these linked episodes are combined we can see a synthesis of Futurist Biblical apocalypticism being played out. And as well, nearly every contemporary aspect of today's social zeitgeist, the kulturkampf du jour is portrayed (sorry for the 'babel' of different languages). And similar to the Georgia Guidestones, there is a Malthusian aspect, and where the elites, playing God, can save their Chosen Ones, per their Grace. And then remember these shows were quietly linked to the prescient Lone Gunmen episode and 9/11. X-Files is on Rupert Murdoch's Fox TV, and this Globalist was raised as an Australian Christian Evangelical. As I have noted in my Trump thread, Trump takes his Tweeting cues from 'conservative' Fox's Fox and Friends talking head show every morning. The alien aspect is very interesting in the context of all this happening in an apocalyptic context. This because the Vatican has indeed been quietly postulating that a savior may come to us from outer space, and now we have the US Navy claiming that its pilots recently tracked a UFO. The one pilot whose tracking video has been widely played was just interviewed on ... Fox News. Do you really ... want to believe?
