As a rare movie that does more than just mindlessly encourage the status quo, the movie Koyaanisqatsi: Life Out of Balance features a cinematic montage arranged around the theme of modern life being out balance. The soundtrack features the chanting of three Hopi end of the world prophecies. I will discuss those prophecies in this blog.
Prophecy 1: "If we dig precious things from the land, we will invite disaster."
According to research, people today have lead and mercury levels in their bodies hundreds of times higher than before the industrial revolution. The implications of this on society as a whole may be quite profound. Also dug out of the ground are all the fossil fuels that are having such a strong effect on the planet's climate.
Prophecy 2: "Near the day of Purification, there will be cobwebs spun back and forth in the sky."
In any big city, if you look up, you will see contrails criss-crossing the sky.
Prophecy 3: "A container of ashes might one day be thrown from the sky, which could burn the land and boil the oceans."
