A lot of fans were disappointed that the new X-Files film didn't feature the alien colonization mythology storyline. Perhaps they simply weren't looking hard enough.
The major story we've been looking at here is the emerging Sirius symbolism, in the election and the aftermath of 9/11 as well as the Dubai Atlantis ritual. I am still working out the details, but it seems whatever unearthly force has been using Chris Carter as a conduit for the past 15 years is still very hard at work.
As the Dogstar rises once again in the public conscious, the new X-Files film is centered on dogs, as well as water and decapitation symbolism.
In an election cycle that saw the unexpected emergence of an Alaskan governor with a fake Dakotan accent and a black man ascending to the Oval Office, we saw "Dakota Whitney" and Mosely Drummy take Mulder and Scully's place in the FBI.
Ice has been used in films like Eternal Sunshine and Serendipity as a cosmos metaphor, and he we see dogs walking across a frozen lake in search of pieces to the film's central mystery.
A metaphor that the central mystery of the ages is to be found in the Canis Major constellation?
When we first meet the villain he is submersed in a pool, almost as if he is amphibious. This brings us to the amphibious Oannes, the god from Sirius who created human civilization by day and returned to his undersea abode at night.
And since it is the opinion of this blogger that there was a ceremonial office established by whoever Oannes actually was and eventually passed down to Ioannnes the Baptist, we see a nice depiction of him as well.
There are a number of other scintillating semiotic hits in this film that tie directly into some of the major themes we have been looking at and will be looking at in the near future.
