Invasion Of The Body Snatchers
The Hollywood Babylon movie, Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956), produced from Jack Finney`s science fiction novel, The Body Snatchers (1954), depicts an alien invasion of Earth. Aliens emerge from `pods`, each capable of reproducing a duplicate replacement copy of each human. As each pod reaches full development, it assimilates the physical characteristics, memories, and personalities of each sleeping person placed near it.
 Britney Spears resurrects the `pod` concept in the promotional video for her single, `Oops! ... I Did It Again` (2000), in which a spaceman described as `Mars lander` by `Mission Control` on Earth discovers her in a red pilot`s suit. She places a hook in what looks like an Apollo astronaut`s backpack and raises him to look down upon her duplicate self as she lies beneath the astronaut`s camera eye upon a white star shaped blanket in a white bikini dress. Complaining about a lack of sleep, Britney sings a lyric suggestive of the `pod` problem:
`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:
Baby, oh!`1
 The duplication of Britney Spears in the video raising the spaceman in her red suit so that he can film her below in a white bikini dress is again repeated as we see Spears take to the air and somersault in her red suit before landing in front of the Apollo spaceman wearing black skirt and boots and a white blouse. He is waiting to present this new Britney emerged from her body with a gift that we can`t see:
 `But I thought the old lady dropped it into the ocean in the end?`
 The reference is to the `heart of the ocean` blue diamond pendant worn by actress Kate Winslet as Rose in the movie Titanic (1997), which Rose throws into the ocean at the point of the salvaging of the 1912 ocean going liner`s sinking after hitting an iceberg on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York on 15 April. Rose drops the diamond pendant into the ocean as an old woman at the beginning of the film before the events of the story enacted by the then 22 year old Kate Winslet, as young Rose, unfold. It`s a story of possession in which Rose abandons her fiancée, Cal, for a new lover, Jack, and, jilted, the fiancée puts the pendant into the lover`s pocket and accuses him of theft. The diamond is still in the pocket when Rose is in the lifeboat as the ship sinks and her new lover, Jack, drowns saving passengers.

 Although Rose isn`t possessed by either man, the `heart of the ocean` pendant is a symbol of their desire to possess her and of her desire to be possessed. Britney appears duplicated in `Oops I Did It Again`, and complaining at losing her mind, while she sleeps upon a blanket shaped like a `Compass Rose`, that is, a direction finder used by ships to indicate North South, East and West (and those intermediate points between), relates her clearly to Rose from the Titanic as well as to the plot of The Invasion Of The Body Snatchers in which humans sleep but awake as `pod people`, whose bodies and minds have been possessed, which is one science fictional explanation for the crew of the Titanic`s failure to avoid disaster. When Britney`s spaceman gives her the gift, which symbolically represents the `heart of the ocean`, he`s trying to discover if she wants to be possessed by a lover:


 `Well, baby, I went down and got it for you.`


 The further science fiction reference is to Robert A. Heinlein`s Podkayne Of Mars (1963), who is called Poddy, that is, `the Poddy beautiful` in the novel, while Britney Spears` appearances on the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) television show Top Of The Pops (1964-2006) showcase for pop music artists to perform their songs, and which often featured the dance troupe Pan`s People (1968-76) dancing to songs by artists not able to perform `live`, might have led her to form her own dance troupe, Pod`s People, for the `Oops! ... I Did It Again` video performance of the song during the period in television history when video was replacing Pan`s People, and similar dance troupes on TOTP and elsewhere, as a popular substitute for `live` appearances. Britney Spears` duplication of herself in `Oops! ... I Did It Again` is for the viewer aware that Britney`s bodies correspond to the whimsically titled Apple`s I-Pods, which were software to hardware designed in the late 20th century by the Apple computer company as portable personal video players for people to watch whichever Britney Spears was the latest `apple of the eye` performing `Oops! ... I Did It Again`, for example, while for the science fiction community I-Pods are, in their imagination, Robert A. Heinlein`s Poddy`s, and Britney Spears portrays her tongue-in-cheek in `Oops I Did It Again` as a lead dancer with Pod`s People, who aren`t for `live` performances but video duplicates:
`... free citizen of Mars, female. Future pilot and someday commander of deep-space exploration parties. Watch for me in the news.`2
 Britney Spears` red pilot`s suit is a further indication that she`s Poddy, that is, the body beautiful on Mars, while the Apollo astronaut is the reel `pod` that seeks to possess her through the eye of his camera relaying pictures to `Mission Control` on Earth, and so prevent Britney`s `Poddy` from establishing an independent career amongst the stars, just as Cal and Jack represented the `bods` who wanted to possess Rose in the movie Titanic. Although Rose escapes that disaster, in the 1978 Hollywood Babylon version of the film Invasion Of The Body Snatchers a high pitched sound is emitted by the `pod people` when a human is detected among them, which explains the high pitched sound in `Oops! ... I Did It Again` that precedes Britney`s receiving her gift from the astronaut:
`All aboard!`
 The `Oops! ... I Did It Again` announcement tells the viewer that it`s the Titanic and Britney`s been recognized by the `pod people` who`ll be looking to sink her ship of the stars, just as the NASA space program was sunk. Britney`s red pilot suit is a criticism of NASA`s (North American Space Administration) cancellation of the X-15 spaceplane program to fly to the moon, which cancellation resulted in the Apollo missions to launch a rocket at the moon. Cancellation of the NASA spaceplane dream was translated into an escalation of the arms race across the Earth as flight into space gave way to the nightmare of a planet terrorized by rival nations` intercontinental ballistic missiles armed with nuclear warheads. ICBMs were based on the Saturn V rockets of NASA`s Apollo program that put Neil A. Armstrong onto the moon on July 21, 1969 (2: 56 UTC). Neil was Commander of the Lunar Module detached from pilot Michael Collins` Command Module, which  remained in orbit around Earth`s satellite, after the three carrier stages of the Saturn V rocket, representing fuel tanks, had been discarded. After the Lunar Module was guided to the lunar surface by pilot, Edwin `Buzz` E. Aldrin Jr, Neil Armstrong became the first man on the moon:
 `One small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.`3
 Britney Spears refers again to the NASA spaceplane program in the title of her album Blackout (2007) because pilots` `blackout` at high altitude was the reason given for cancellation of the X-15 spaceplane program by NASA, that is, the planes sometimes crashed and the pilots had to escape death by means of ejector seats, because they lost consciousness as the plane left Earth`s atmosphere and entered that region of space where sun and stars could be seen by the naked eye above sky and clouds. The single from the album was `Piece Of Me` and Britney Spears appeared on the cover for the CD as Jesus crucified upon the wooden cross he was forced to carry by agents of the Roman Empire during the period of their occupation of Palestine to the hill of Calvary outside Jerusalem where Jesus was nailed to a cross of wood and died as a `dissident` teacher:
`Love your neighbor as you love yourself.` (Matt: 22. 39)
 In the Bible Jesus is described as having Resurrection and Ascension to heaven after his death, although the meaning of the entirety of his life and teaching is contained in his Advent. Born from his mother, the Virgin Mary, uncontaminated by male semen, Jesus was `woman`s seed` and not men`s, which is what Britney Spears` preoccupation with `blackout` refers to. Women can sexually reproduce without men, as `futanarian` women with their own penis` semen and host wombs, rather than be pods for men`s `seed` to take possession of their human species for war and extinction. The term `blackout` also refers to censorship, for example, the Hays code (1930-67) made it a rule for women to have a foot on the floor in Hollywood Babylon bedroom movie scenes for moral reasons, whereas it was a means of preventing women`s penis from becoming known and so facilitate the human race`s extinction by its pogromers, that is, men are the `body snatchers`, which they don`t want anyone to know because they`re aliens.
 Jesus` main teaching, which superceded the law of God given to Moses, was understandable because directed at `woman`s seed`, that is, `love your neighbor as you love yourself` offered hope to the human species of women enslaved by an alien predator, which is described in the Bible as the serpent in Eden tempting Eve, the first woman, and Adam, the first man, to `eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil` so that they and their descendants would taste of death rather than the `fruit of the tree of life` that was immortality given to humanity in their original paradisal home of Eden, `You shall be as gods.` (Gen: 3. 5) According to the Bible God expelled Eve and Adam from Eden with the promise that they`d have Redemption if Adam labored and Eve would have labor pains, which were fulfilled in the birth of Jesus uncontaminate. Eve`s `seed` would have Resurrection and Ascension to heaven is the meaning of God`s promise to `futanarian` Adam and Eve`s human descendants, although men of the `serpent`s seed` have killed and culled the human `futanarian` species to the point of extinction, which is why Britney Spears appears on the cross of Jesus as a woman on the cover of `Piece Of Me` from the album Blackout, because she wants women to have brains of their own and not be the unconscious slaves of an alien racist:
`I'm Mrs 'Most likely to get on TV for strippin' on the streets'
When getting the groceries, no, for real;
Are you kidding me?
No wonder there's panic in the industry,
I mean please.`4
 In the Bible Jesus is described as being born again in his `Second Coming` to the Earth from a `woman clothed with the sun and with the moon at her feet` to `rule the nations with an iron scepter` while a `red dragon` waits in vain to devour him, which suggests that the alien racist has grown since Eden and Jesus comes to save the Earth from being devoured by racism and war against `woman`s seed`:
`The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent's reach.` (Rev: 12. 14)
 The wings of the `great eagle` may be those of the United States of America symbolized by the eagle on the Great Seal of the presidency`s authority to wage war. However, although the war against the perpetrators and supporters of the terrorist hijacking of the civil airliners that were crashed into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001, wasn`t against the Moslem women of Islam who accept the Koran (610-30 CE) dictated by the angels, according to tradition, to their Prophet Mohamed, the four wives that are permitted to a marriage in Islam represent the possibility of `futanarian` sexual reproduction between women of the human species rather than with men of the `serpent`s seed` and so an assault on a Moslem leader`s nation is a dangerous act, which United States President, George W. Bush, sanctioned when Saddam Hussein of Iraq declared his support for the Al Qaeda terrorist group that claimed responsibility for the 9/11 atrocity.
 Iraq`s President was executed on December 30, 2006, after his country was invaded by the United States. Consequently, the `body snatchers` had won because, instead of women sexually reproducing the human race together, the racists had produced a race to extinction by male braining what remained of the species for devouring in war by its predator. Male brained by male semen, that is, the `serpent`s seed`, the human race has become food that wants to be eaten and wars are its meals.
 Britney Spears` `Oops! ... I Did It Again` features the singer dancing, because bodily integrity, and the science of behavioralism, which is often represented as psychology by psychoanalysts, are what singing and dancing are about. Those who disapprove are behavioralists, that is, they`re against the bodily integrity of the individual, which is why they`re responsible for conflict and ultimately war. They don`t want singing and dancing, that is, independent bodily integrity that doesn`t require behavior lessons. In simple terms, behavioralism allows humanity`s killer to label harmless activity as dangerously animalistic so that it can be extinguished. In short, there are those who want to move and those who don`t want them to. These are the behavioralists. They want humanity`s grave to be quiet, it`s not about behavior. Having already eaten the woman`s penis, the red dragon has male brained the race for war and extinction. Behavioralism is how humans are kept quiet while the pogrom continues:
`They`re here already! You`re next! You`re next!`5
 The movie Invasion Of The Body Snatchers was remade in Hollywood Babylon in 1978. Although the plot of the film is similar to the 1956 version, which details the efforts of a California doctor, Miles Bennell, to uncover and solve the mystery of the pods, despite being treated for succumbing to the `epidemic of mass hysteria` by psychiatrist Dr Dan Kauffman, the 1978 film is more realistic insofar as it concludes with the only real woman remaining on a planet of `pod people` screaming in terror at her realization. The 1956 movie concludes with psychiatrist, Dr Hill, being proven wrong. While he`s treating Miles Bennell for `mass hysteria` an accident causes an injured driver to be found buried under a truck load of pods. The behavioral psychiatrists at the hospital notify the authorities of the pods` existence, whereas in the 1978 version of the movie behavioralism wins. The lone woman, Nancy Bellicec, in a city of `pod people`, who`re `devoid of all human emotion`, proclaims the alien victory and the triumph of the killer well trained.
