Britney Spears` Mars Lander and God Phoenix
God Phoenix is a spacecraft in a Japanese manga cartoon for television, Gatchaman (1972), piloted by Ryu Nakanishi of the Science Ninja Team. The God Phoenix was replaced by the New God Phoenix, in accordance with the myth of the Phoenix, known as `the firebird`, because it resurrects from its self-immolation. Consequently, in Gatchaman II (1978), the God Phoenix was replaced by the New God Phoenix, which was itself destroyed in the first episode of Gatchaman Fighter (1979), and was resurrected from the ashes of its destruction as Gatchaspartan for the Science Ninja Team`s continuing battle against Galactor.
The solar system contains Mars as Earth`s closest neighbor, apart from the moon, which the North American Space Administration`s Apollo 11 astronaut, Neil Armstrong, first set foot upon for humankind on July 21, 1969, UTC: 2. 56: `One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.` Apollo was the name given by NASA to the missions that preceded and succeeded to the moon landing, whereas Phoenix was the name of the unmanned spacecraft that completed its mission to land on the red planet of Mars on May 25, 2008, and examine the surface to see if it contained life. The Science Ninja Team`s spacecraft, God Phoenix, was resurrected by the imaginations of those who decided upon the name Phoenix for the unmanned Mars landing, and the idea emerged in Britney Spears` `Oops ... I Did It Again` science fictional promoting video from the album Oops! ... I Did It Again (1999) in which Britney is discovered singing and dancing on Mars in her red pilot`s suit by an Apollo astronaut from the era of the NASA moon landings. Because the pilot of the God Phoenix spacecraft is a man, Ryu, `the Owl`, and the only other female member of the Science Ninja Team is Jun, the Swan, Britney Spears` red pilot suited character corresponds to Jun, who is the electronics and demolitions expert with the team who`re trained in the Science Ninja Technique of self defense:
`Who is it, who is it, who is it;
That shadow dancing in the sky.
It's the white wings of Gatchaman
leaping on faith
in the science technique firebird.`
Although Britney Spears` character is wearing a red pilot`s suit, Jun isn`t the pilot of God Phoenix in Gatchaman, and so she more closely corresponds to the character, Red Impulse, who is the leader of a squadron of pilots that occasionally help Gatchaman, although Red Impulse is a man. Britney Spears dancers would then be her training squadron being put through their paces. In the series, Jun has a white jump suit, so Britney Spears appears `twinned` in her red pilot`s suit and in a white bikini dress. Raising the Apollo spaceman above herself in a white bikini dress by means of a hook in his backpack and a pulley, Britney in her red pilot`s suit makes it quite clear that she is separate and distinct from the `other` Britney beneath the camera eye of the spaceman as he hangs suspended helplessly above her. Consequently, Red Impulse and her squadron are supporting Jun, the Swan, in terms of the correspondences between `Oops! ... I Did It Again` and the God Phoenix crew and their supporters in the Gatchaman Japanese manga television and cinema film franchising. God Phoenix is an underwater vessel as well as an aircraft and spaceship, which explains some of the ocean going symbolism in Britney Spears` `Oops! ... I Did It Again`; for example, she`s lying atop a `Rose Compass` beneath the camera eye of the spaceman as he relays pictures back to `Mission Control`. A Rose Compass is a nautical device, which allows the ship`s master to note the position of the vessel, and so its appearance in `Oops! ... I Did It Again` indicates Britney Spears` role; an interpretation supported by the lyric sung by the star during the sequence in which the spaceman is filming her from above:
`You see my problem is this;
I'm dreaming away:
Wishing that heroes, they truly exist.
I cry, watching the days.
Can't you see I'm a fool in so many ways?
But to lose all my senses;
That is just so typically me
All of the characters in God Phoenix have bird attributes in their costume and nomenclature, for example, Ryu, `the Owl`, and Jun, `the Swan`, and their call to action is `Bird, go!` Britney`s appearance in `Oops! ... I Did It Again` is that of a manga cartoon character in her red pilot`s suit and, in her white bikini dress upon the star of a Compass Rose, she`s God Phoenix`s baby bird:
The announcement is a nautical term directed at the crew or passengers, which had critics looking at the gift box given to Britney Spears, because the belief was that the Titanic (1997) movie was a theme of the video `Oops! ... I Did It Again`, where Rose drops the `heart of the ocean` blue diamond pendant into the sea at the point of salvage for the sunken vessel that hit an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York on April 15, 1912. It`s a remembrance of her time spent aboard the ship, which she boards as the fiancée of Cal, but jilts him for a new lover, Jack, who is framed for the theft of the `blue diamond pendant` belonging to Rose by the simple expedient of Cal`s arranging to have it placed inside Jack`s pocket and then accusing him of stealing it. The corresponding item in the Gatchaman manga cartoon adventure is a `rose bomb` thrown by a `Devilstar` in episode # 81, `Duel on Galactor Island`. She`d been corrupted by Galactor and was the fiancée of Alan, who blames Joe, `the Condor`, for killing her:
`Joe remembers a Devilstar racing at him, a rose bomb in her hand. The Devilstar throws her rose bomb, but Joe throws a shuriken, pinning the rose back to the Devilstar’s chest.`
Joe`s parents were members of Galactor, who were killed by a Galactor rose bomb, when they tried to escape. Consequently, the rose theme relates to escape from a false embrace, which is why critics have associated `the heart of the ocean`, given to Rose in the Titanic movie, with the gift box given to Britney Spears by her spaceman in the `Oops I Did It Again` video, because Rose wants to escape from Cal in the arms of Jack, who drowns while rescuing people from the lifeboats, while Cal escapes. Although Rose drops the `heart of the ocean` blue diamond pendant into the sea at the point of the vessel`s salvage at the beginning of the film, Britney Spears` spaceman says:
`Well, Baby, I went down and got it for you.`
The line that links Britney`s `Oops I Did It Again` video with the Titanic movie is her response to the gift in the box that the audience can`t see: `But I thought the old lady dropped it into the ocean in the end?` Her spaceman`s going into the ocean to recover it relates to the God Phoenix`s role as a submersible in Gatchaman. When the spaceman arrives Britney has escaped, because she`s seen dancing and singing with her squadron. Although the God Phoenix isn`t seen, the Phoenix symbolism is present in the radio call from `Mission Control` asking `Mars Lander` for a `status report` at the beginning of the `Oops! ... I Did It Again` video, because `Phoenix` was the name of `Mars Lander`, when the unmanned NASA spacecraft landed on the red planet on May 25, 2008. Picking up a painted cameo of Britney from the floor of the desert, it resembles a biscuit or `cookie`, which is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored on a user's computer so that when the website loads it remembers the visitor. Although Britney Spears` video isn`t a website, `Oops! ... I Did It Again` is replayable. At one point the spaceman is seen walking backwards to emphasize the replayable aspect of the recording, that is, it remembers the visitor, who is the spaceman. When he`s collected the `cookie`, Britney`s stage show rises from the sand:
`It couldn`t be?`
The `cookie` is collected by the spacemen each time the video is played and so the recording remembers as an internet website remembers the visitor`s previous visit so that the visitor can begin from where they paused their website visit. For `gamers` this is a necessity, which suggests `Oops! ... I Did It Again` is a prototypical computer game in which avatars have tasks to complete for the player to succeed. Although the characters in `Oops! ... I Did It Again` repeat the same tasks over again each time the video is played, the `cookie` remembers, and so Britney Spears is a `smart cookie`, which suggests that she`s remembering. Consequently, when she descends inside a giant ring to the stage set of `Oops! ... I Did It Again`, it`s a remember ring, and what`s being remembered is the `heart of the ocean`, that is, the blue diamond pendant, which symbolizes the false embrace missing from the ring as she descends to greet someone who is `suited`:
`But to lose all my senses;
That is just so typically me.
In the developmental psychology of Carl Gustav Jung (1875-1961) archetypes are symbols and images that appear in dreams, art and the imagination as the impulses to individual growth. According to Jung human consciousness has four functions; `Thinking, Sensation, Feeling and Intuition`. The archetype can be found in the four different suits of playing cards that originally were associated with the legend of the bowl of Jesus at the `Last Supper` at which he gave the disciples `bread and wine` as symbols of his `body and blood`, because food and drink are necessary to humans. The suits are bowls, spears, swords and pentacles which, according to Jungian psychology, denote `Thinking, Sensation, Feeling and Intuition` in undifferentiated form, that is, ears, eyes, mouth, and nose or sense of smell. Although civilization, culture and art arise from human activity, obtaining food is what the functions are for. Consequently, Judas` embracing of Jesus before he betrayed him as a `dissident` to the Roman occupiers of Jewish Palestine for preaching `love your neighbor` during the period of Empire, was a betrayal of the human spirit against slavery.
Because Britney Spears` `Oops! ... I Did It Again` is a description of the psychological complex associated with the individuation process, it`s a manufacturing complex, that is, it`s a concrete rather than an abstract depiction of how to obtain food, because those who buy the product feed the producer. Consequently, the artist is a manufacturer of food by association, that is, people are fed because they work for the artist, for example, on the production of Britney Spears` video `Oops! ... I Did It Again`. Confusion arises when the artist is perceived by the consumer as food. Enslavers perceive that care is a lesser activity, that is, humanity is a dramatic display of useless human emotion. The slaver perceives Britney Spears as lesser, because consumed by an emotional desire to manufacture as an artist, so the greater is consumed by the lesser, that is, the artist is in fact the greater, while the slaver devours her. However, the artist`s desire is to be a manufacturer, so that she can live without being employed, that is, be a `man` in the true sense of the meaning of the word. Consequently, it`s the desire to be a manufacturer that the slaver perceives as an artistic emotion that categorizes the human individual as inferior to the slaver, who wants to eat without manufacturing. Just as Cain killed his superior brother, Abel, in the Bible because Abel was able to could cook, while Cain only wanted to pick fruit from trees, because it required lesser effort.
Artists are despised by the lesser or inferior because artists want to be manufacturers. As a consequence, humans are despised, because they want to be free of slavery. Because human emotions place the artist in the `village idiot` category for those with lesser ability, who want the artist to slave for the slaver, displays of humanity are what the slaver wants from the artist in a video like `Oops! ... I Did It Again`, for instance, but that display of emotionality categorizes the artist as inferior and not a manufacturer to the consumer. Consequently, the slaver teaches the consumer that the artist is food. The obvious science fiction element, apart from `Mars Lander`, in `Oops! ... I Did It Again` is the television series, Land Of The Giants (1968-70), in which the Spindrift, a sub-orbital passenger spacecraft, lands in a storm to discover themselves little people amongst giants. Britney descends to her stage set in a giant ring as a symbol of her human ambition to be a successful manufacturer, which is what the set depicts: manufacture ring. Because the individual is small, doesn`t mean they`re not a `man`. Any girl who designs a birthday card is a manufacturer; for example, but she may lack the wherewithal to manufacture. So she`s prey to the enslaving ogre, who isn`t a giant and would lessen her in the eyes of the public as an emotional artist, who is impractical, and so dismissable as some category of `village idiot`.
The enslaver uses the artist to dramatize humanity for others to emulate in ignorance how enslavement is practiced upon those taught they`re not a `man` as a display window of how humans behave. The slaver doesn`t want humans to manufacture what they need to live without the slaver, and so human emotions are dramatized for humans to accept as correct behavioral responses within a slave system. The enslaver doesn`t want the human to be a `man`, that is, a manufacturer, who lives by their own effort, so the `village idiot` character is both a manufacturing artist and a human slave as characterized by the enslaver who perceives humanity and human emotion as a display window rather than an actual depiction of human activity. In simple terms, what humans see and are taught to believe is human is the Potemkin village illusion that the `the man` wants humans to believe is real so the humans can continue as a slave race. The concept of the Potemkin village (Потёмкинские деревни) was developed in Russia to hide government installations,1 but the `village idiot` concept has been adopted as the basic propaganda tool of government everywhere, because `the man` doesn`t want humans to be socio-economically independent of `the man` as the enslaver of humanity. In short, the manufacturer who enslaves is `the man` and the humans live in a Potemkin village illusion as `village idiots` who`re humans but can`t be a `man`, because a slave ring isn`t a manufacture ring, and `the man` wants humans as deluded actors for an illusionist`s trick.
Britney Spears` `Oops! ... I Did It Again` depicts CD manufacture from the director and the artist`s perspective, because the artist, Britney Spears, is her `man`, that is, her manufacturer, which is why she descends inside a manufacture ring as a small person. She`s the manufacturer, but appears small, because she`s big, so represents freedom from slavery to humans. Although she`s in the land of the giants, she`s inside what`s transparently a New York Giants` NFL Superbowl ring, so the ogres are discouraged by the size of the team in American Football protecting the quarterback (QB) so that the ball reaches the `end zone` and `touchdown` (TD), which was the word deployed by NASA, when Neil Armstrong made the first step onto the surface of Earth`s moon: `One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.`2 Because human manufacturers are giants, whereas ogres devour.
God Phoenix is Japanese giants` fiction, where the fiction is that the characters aren`t a Potemkin village illusion designed to fool humans into believing that they can never be a manufacturer of what they need in order to live without being the slaves of an ogre, rather than a giant with other manufacturers. The fear for humans is that, behind the Potemkin village illusion, is an ogre rather than a giant, and humanity`s history of wars and Empires supports the belief that`s true. Consequently, the critics` perception that it`s Rose`s `heart of the ocean` diamond blue pendant, from the Titanic movie, in the gift box that the spaceman gives to Britney in `Oops! ... I Did It Again`, is designed to warn a younger humanity of the false embrace, and the allusion to the `rose bomb` of the woman, who`s been corrupted by `the man`, until she accepts her role as a Devilstar in the employ of Galactor, and is necessarily killed by Joe Condor in self-defense, depicts her betrayal by `the man`, which her lover, Alan, blames Joe for. Japanese giants` fiction is ogreish, because the manufacturer, that is, `the man`, exemplifies corruption and the devourment of young humans within the Potemkin village illusion designed to trap humanity into accepting slavery and devouring rather than that humans are individually manufacturers of what they need themselves to live, which is what `a man` is definable as, whereas `the man` is a devourer, because ogreish.
The God Phoenix`s Joe is blameless, because Alan is depicted as a Potemkin `village idiot` delusionist convincing the young human audience that`s how humans behave and so `the man`, that is, the manufacturer, wants Joe and/or Alan to die as antagonists because that`s what devourers do. The pedantic ubiquitousness of the theme in human entertainment is a sickness that `the man` has, because it`s an ancient evil that could only be transcended if individual humans had longevity, and therefore life enough to develop a manufactory and the memory capacity to become permanent manufacturers of their own needs. Consequently, `the man` is a term for heroin addicts waiting for their `hit`, which is a term used by assassins too, and that`s because `the man` spends most of humanity`s money on war, and preparations for war, rather than on health. Heroin is a drug used by `the man` to kill the human, which is what assassins do, because `the man` doesn`t want `a man`, but rather death for the individual, who might become a manufacturer, that is, `a man`, and able to live independently of `the man` who lives by devouring humans:
`Oops! I did it again;
I played with your heart, got lost in the game:
Oh baby, baby.
Oops! You think I'm in love;
That I'm sent from above:
I'm not that innocent.`
Britney Spears` lyric from `Oops! ... I Did It Again` iterates the heart theme, and the plague game, whereby the men play games to delude with Potemkin village illusions to make village idiots out of humans so that people become facades behind which monsters operate. In other words, Britney Spears is aware of the game, and warns the deluder that she isn`t innocent, because she`s a man, that is, a manufacturer, and doesn`t accept slavery and devourment as the lot of humanity.
She`s The Man (2006) was the movie starring Amanda Bynes as Viola Hastings, who dresses as a boy in order to play soccer, because sexism prevents her from making the team, which is true because, born from his mother, the Virgin Mary, Jesus was uncontaminated by male semen, and so represents `woman`s seed`, that is, futanarian human women with their own penis` semen and host womb for the sexual reproduction of their humans species` own brains` powers for socio-economic development and independence as manufacturers. Although She`s The Man is a comedy, humor constitutes another aspect of the Potemkin village illusion designed to keep humanity in ignorance and slavery to `the man`, because merriment is perceived as a village idiot`s foolery, whereas it`s a sign of human sophistication. Consequently, sophisticated humans are fooled by `the man` into deluding humans, although humor is a sophisticatedly human attribute, which means that sophisticated humanity is held in contempt by `the man` that uses it to dupe humans into slavery and devourment. Although `political correctness` is anti-sexist, the absence of futanarian `woman`s seed` from Hollywood movies indicates that cross-dressing films are mocking the human race`s male brainedness, which enslaves and devours. Television is most commonly defined as `TV`, while transvestite or cross-dresser is also defined as `TV`, and so male braining is what `TV` represents as a species. With a male brain for its females as well as its males, the male can teach the female to accept slavery and devourment for human nature, which is what war movies without Jesus` woman`s `seed` predicate and that`s what `the man` plans. A social fabric existing as a Potemkin village illusion containing idiots while `the man` plans to enslave and devour an increasingly humorless and humanless planet, because `the man` doesn`t want `a man` to live.
