There are many symbolisms and occult references that stand out in pop culture today. From historical artifacts, to music and film, it seems the occult world has never really gone away, but in fact has become more flagrant and blatant. The problem is that many are unaware of the meanings behind what some consider to be just artistic entertainment that appeals to the senses with no real hidden meanings, or agendas behind them. There are many musicians that promote their music through occult influence — this is a fact, now it seems as if CERN, a name many can relate only to science has decided to take a jab at it as well. Filmmaker Ruben Van Leer has produced a dance, opera film called, Symmetry.
In a nutshell, Leer’s film uses the Collider as a stage — telling the story of Lukas, a scientist and dancer who is moved by an inner voice (soprano singer Claron McFadden), and gets thrown off course from his studies. He wanders about the Collider, floats through space, and explores different dimensions under her guidance. Eventually, Lukas uses the Collider as a transporter to travel to a white desert (barren like place) that is probably a different plane of existence. It almost appears as if this is our last dance, if you will.
The opera like choreography has a ritualistic feel, and physics in the film presumably explores questions about humanity’s origin.
