I finally finished Apple TV’s “Severance,” which I watched at Pam’s house the last 8 Tuesdays. If I wasn’t so fascinated with the “split personality premise” and I didn’t sense some big “truth” in it, I would have turned the show off after the second episode. If you decide to watch, you’ll know if you are fascinated and addicted to it early on. If you’re not, the show is pretty bad. Four or five episodes are extremely strange, and many segments are downright boring. However, “the truth” that may be inside it was too big for me to turn away, and because I stuck with it, the last two episodes were very good, setting up a second season.ReplyReply AllForwardEdit as new

Hearing Matt’s review makes my skin crawl (lol, no really) yet for two decades I worked inside Corporate cubicles in a 42 story sky-scrapper, creating Artwork and living a life that sounds a little too close to this show, wow. So happy Matt’s taken the time to watch something I will never have to, he’s taking another hit for our team, thanks.

I never regret walking away from the limelight, (as many “think” is valuable in this life) that was over 10 years ago and I don’t miss the money (at all) it’s not worth your sanity.

Lol, well…when I created artwork and raised money in Hollywood, it was a shade of green (a glow perhaps) most wouldn’t trust. The behavior of a major corporation I’d worked with for over 2 decades (not located in Hollywood) though, was what really woke me up (just) as I was becoming personal friends (at that time, no longer I guess, haven’t heard from them in 2 years) with people like Jeff Berwick, Doug Casey – back in 2012.

So I walked away from the “show / the big game” so to speak, just as I was waking up to this truth movement (as it’s known today). I had been scratching my head (more than most) already by then for about 10 years since 2001, but 2012 was the year it really went off the rails, lol. Cheers.

I am following Matt and Danny Minely, UncannyDeduction and many more, so, you get the idea what my level of consciousness lies 😉 Or, least i am trying to evolve from a first grade truther class LOL) YET, I like this TV show and contrary to what Matt said, it is well made: original idea, well written script, the actors are amazing. It has a slow pace without being boring, a lot of twists. I can come up with many more arguments, but I have no tim to ‘defend’ a TV series, and honest to be, I consider a waste of my precious time from my part. All I want to say, is that it simply a good movie, doesn’t matter with which eyes you are seeing it.
And especially in this shitty times, in this staled century, as Matt said, where no original work is being released, i really enjoy from time to time a good TV show.
So, in this case, the reviews may be honest. Peace!

PS. Another good original TV show I recommend is “FROM”

I watched it all too and highly recommend it. It resonated with me on a very deep level….there were too many cubicle days for me in my life. The pace of this film is perfect as it mimics the pace of the cubicle world. I felt chained and caged like these people. It’s a “must watch” for those types, imo. Thanks for the other movie recommendation!

The partitions can be moved up and down as the characters sometimes did during the series. Note the girl Helly’s partition is lower than the one behind the bearded guy (watched the whole series and already forgot his name).

The dark concept of a selfish, cruel Higher Self has been proposed on GooTube before, it’s interesting but very distressing. Overall I think there’s some truth to it, the self in here isn’t completely aligned or friendly with the part that put us in this hellhole, Jacob’s Ladder reality. It doesn’t has to be evil, but the mundane self is the one truly experiencing pain and death so there’s some resentment probably.

In my opinion the show gate subtle hints especially in the last two episodes that the innies lives which would be the wiped ego as well as the outtie lives, subconscious/higher self seem to have a direct effect on the other. Some examples of this happened with mark and with John tuturros character. As Marks innie personality starts deciding to fight for his freedom and seemingly falling for Helly, his outtie’s mood becomes more positive and he improves all around. Similarly Tutturos outtie has been investigating lumen, it appears he doesn’t sleep and this has a direct effect on his innie, who eventually also comes to to decision to fight for his freedom. Helly is the only one who seems not to have had any direct effect on her outtie or innie and it’s possible her character can not integrate the two due to an addiction that her outtie has with the material realm. Perhaps this is what happen with the creeps their higher self is addicted and eventually their ego becomes addicted once they are put here, or Helly is going to have to transform to make her higher self wake up to the reality of their situation and has more work to do to integrate her higher self and ego self due to the life she’s lead. Great breakdown brother. A lot of big things to think about with this presentation.

The hard work of transformation to garnering an existence that really matters to you in your heart is the win of a lifetime. Sometimes, I feel like my higher self is a being that lived on Earth before and many other places and is like a life coach, but not much better. Haha ❤ The Guardians however, those are the beings that really get me.

At one point you see these these green waves streaming from all the peolpe into Nygma’s hideout.

Based on what Severance has alluded to (so far), the goal of this existence is to become “unsevered” from our higher self… the two into one religion. The thought of who pushes this ideology is disconcerting, but my own experiences are proving the contrary.

There is “heaven” here in this severed realm if you have the sense to feel it. When we “metamorphize,” say drop all attachments to this realm, my guess is we’ll cherish the experience with something far more powerful than nostalgia. With all the hardships within, I (choose to) believe this place is an incredible gift.

If we’re here doing the “work,” then “do what you love and you’ll never do another day of work in your LIFE.” How often is that line pushed (and unheeded)?

IDK… From what “I” could tell from this freaking HUGE “Revelation of The Method”… is that the “Severanced”, work people are showing parts if not ALL of their “True Nature”. It’s like a base program, without ANY other (than the most basic) scripts running. You SEE their persona (Sub-Conscious) arise, when they are in the work-place. Notice that the “chick” is the “spark” that lights the fuse, to what they would do uninhibited by “Societies” scripts running…

And Hahahaha! Yeah, that this is an “Avatar” type experience DID cross my mind. Yet I’m thinking that “we” are seeing their “Higher-Self” emerge, INSIDE the “Severence Work-Place”. But that’s just “me”…

Interesting topic though… A LOT of ways to “read” this puppy!!!

Ben Stiller showing the “mASSES” Kabbalah majik. The Kabbalahists know many truths and hide them in plain sight in their majik “shows”. They know it’s a twin system and that we (us) can go home. But they (them) cannot. They don’t want you to know this and this is why they hate Jesus who came to set the prisoners free. There is no “higher self”. This is it. Second and only last chance. Your birthday was your “second chance day”.

Funny, the premise reminds me of how i feel between my waking and sleeping periods. I never feel like i can sleep enough. But i rarely remember dreams anymore even though i know i have a lot of odd ones.
I just get a big vibe of these characters are being tortured and experimented on, so it just reminds me of same ol same ol norm world i see in every day life.
Dunno why exactly this would be appealing to watch.

The Movie the Green Knight carry’s the darkest images of reality that was carried forward from the past. The best part of it that the Green Knight and King Arthur remind Gawain that it’s just a game and centers around virtue and honor when somebody is out creating their personal legend. The symbolism is presented through out the movie and it’s something that is made to look dark when it is presenting a illuminated message.

I got hip to this series through Matt’s first video on it, which dropped coincidentally when T-Mobile offered free Apple TV so what the hell.

I engage in very few tv series these days as my default stance is that all holllyweird /streaming studios are part of an intentional degradation of our society.

That said, I found this series to be worthwhile. The unique premise is coupled with a unique production – the music/lighting/camera, set & costume design etc were well done. The obligatory degeneracy is kept just below the puking point 🤢 (you can play spot the tran-paco-paco as a game within the game)… Matt is spot on about some the middle episodes being boring, there are about three “fillers”.

We usually assume the higher self is some sort of pure loving entity. But maybe not.
I wonder the same thing about God or creator. Why do we assume our creator to be a loving being that cares about us?

I thoroughly enjoy this show as it posits differently from most others. I find it odd that Ben Stiller is at the helm. As much as I enjoy his comedic sensibilities it adds up to what I feel is going to be a letdown.

“Stupid rewards” or rather the absolutely stupid distractions proposed by big companies are very real !
I could experience that in a couple of big firms I worked for, especially during conventions and big staff meetings, and the worst is that the vast majority of employees are happy with all those stupid games they are told to do, it amuses them a lot ! Stupid jerks !!

Matt, severance is actually touching upon some thing that is really going on. I watched a video yesterday called quiet quitting. Apparently people go to work and do the bare minimum just to get by. They don’t do any extra work, they don’t go above and beyond what’s asked of them and just go home. They need their job and their insurance but they hate their job so they’re quiet quitting in their mind. Very strange. You also mentioned that there are other realms but that it didn’t matter. It does matter. You want off of this realm and onto the better and next round . No one wants to be recycled. Love you Matt.
