We have seen it before - a book, a cinema movie or a TV program from years ago that drops hints left and right, ahead of it's time. This series (which I did not see posted, I do appologise if it was) has a narrtive that may speak to quite a few here, to others it may not. Be warned (but please do not be discouraged..) It contains a lot of drama, as well as moments of violence and despair, so viewing the chapters is at your own risk, especially if you like to keep the positive mind set, but nevertheless, you may find an interest ...
'Broken Saints' was created as a DVD but published on the internet for free , it contains - Spiritual adventure, Milabs, chips, visions, psychic warefare, secret projects, whistleblowing, individual missions full of idealism, holograms, hackers, unity and more, all done wonderfully well in the graphical sense, the way it describe itself is as a 'beautifully animated epic story'.

Please, before watching.. be aware (and beware) that the truth is subject to interpretation and that messages, ideas and symbols are there to effect our subconcious whatever their intent is (and a good and relevent question might be, what is the intent of this one? please share what you think of it here after you have made your acquaintance), so watching the chapters of this series is recommended with keeping that in mind.

From Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broken_Saints): "Broken Saints is an award-winning, partially Flash-animated film series by Brooke Burgess, Ian Kirby, and Andrew West. First published in 2001, it is one of the earliest examples of a motion comic. Like a comic, characters on the most part remain in static poses and dialogue is indicated by speech balloons.

It is some 12 hours long, split into 24 chapters published online between 2001 and 2003. Centered on philosophical, religious, political and spiritual themes, it tells the story of four strangers from "the quiet corners of the globe" connected by a vision they all receive of a coming evil. Their search for the truth behind the vision leads them to each other and to far larger and more disturbing truths than they could have expected."

Here is one chapter for example:

Thank you Limor!
I did not know this existed before you posted it.

I will watch all parts and later will come back to your thread. I am listening to the interview and have to say, I so totally understand this person, and like him too!
Off to watch!

great, Chocolate, I will stay quiet with my bitter-sweet taste for now.. :)

I did not know it exists as well, but it was 'given' to me, much like some books that are falling on our lap.. only in this case it is for better or for worse. Maybe there are Avalonians who are familiar with this series. Hope you can share your feelings (rather than your thinking)

Wow. limor, this sure brings back a lot of ghosts for me. To me the animation speaks so strongly of the supression of the feminine, the lost godess, the balance of duality in all. The masculine is nothing without the feminine. Lost, adrift at sea, no perception of oneness. Thank you so much for this! Love peace and joy to all!
