Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2004 im Fachbereich Germanistik - Linguistik, Note: 1,3, Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster, Veranstaltung: Semiotik des Films, 5 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In der Geschichte der Filmtheorie galt lange Zeit die Vorstellung, die filmtechnischen Mittel Montage und Mise en Scène seien getrennt voneinander zu betrachten, da sie auf verschiedene Ziele der filmische Arbeit verweisen. In dieser Arbeit soll es nun darum gehen, Jean-Luc Godards Auffassung von der Synthese dieser beiden Techniken zu stützen und durch den Nachweis der Austauschbarkeit der jeweiligen Ziele von Montage und Mise en Scène sogar zu verschärfen.Desweiteren werden die noch vor Godard gängigen Vorstellungen von Realitäten, die der Film ermöglicht, verbunden mit den damaligen Auffassungen bezüglich der zwei Filmtechniken, dargestellt und schließlich mit Godards These und der sich ergebenden Konsequenzen modifiziert. Die Grenzen der Wirklichkeit des Films müssen mit Godard neu definiert werden. Zur Untermauerung dieses theoretischen Rahmens folgt im Hauptteil dieser Arbeit eine Filmanalyse zu Stanley Kubricks The Shining (1980). Dieser Filmist aufgrund ungewöhnlicher Raum- und Zeitkonstruktionen und der damit verbundenen Montagetechnik und Mise en Scène hervorragend für dieseZwecke geeignet. Anhand konkreter Sequenzen wird demnach zunächst die Zeitkonstruktion unter Einbezug der Montage und im Anschluss das Raumkonzept unter dem Gesichtspunkt der Mise en Scène betrachtet. Anschließend wird aufgezeigt, inwieweit diese filmtechnischen Mittel untrennbar voneinander zu betrachten sind. Abschließend folgt die Betrachtung der Selbstreferenz des Films, die sich gewissermaßen aus den Konsequenzen der Synthese von Montage und Mise en Scène ergibt.

It started as a joke, a prank for Halloween. Then it went viral. Idiots dressing up as monsters. Giving folk a scare. Silly masks and fright wigs. No one gets hurt. Because bogeymen aren’t real. Until people start going missing and lights burn in the darkness. Burning like eyes. But help is on its way, in the form of a strange man called the Doctor and his friend, Bill. The Doctor will keep us safe. The Doctor will stop the monsters. Unless the monsters stop the Doctor first...

For many years now there has been an upsurge in revelation stories and alternative viewpoints on man's history. People such as Graham Hancock and Lawrence Gardner have brought to light many new ideas and many new problems. Now there is a new theory which is all-encompassing and clearly brings into focus a more sinister reason behind the emergence of civilisation. In his theory on Atlantis Graham Hancock is receiving much admiration and academic acclaim. Standard academic thought is more towards the spontaneous eruption of civilisation across the globe, with little or no explanation of why there are so many similarities between the cultures. Now, Philip Gardiner, in his new book THE SHINING ONES is set to turn even this upon its head. The theory is so simple that it begs the question, why has it not been thought of before? The reason for universal similarity of architecture, language, art, travel and religious belief is quite simply an ancient and secret religious brotherhood who have hidden themselves deep within the symbols, ciphers and codes of our ancient texts for hundreds of years. They held a secret knowledge and power base which spread with them across the globe. The very title that they have given themselves is hidden within the standard text and religious books we use every day -- The Shining Ones. Put like this, the whole thing can sound like an X-Files conspiracy theory. However the author has invested huge amounts of time and energy checking, researching and seeking the advice of academics. Now the theory is attracting the attention of historians who can see that the patterns are as subtle as this author proposes. The fact is, this theory does explain away all the problems with dating and variations that people such as Hancock have come up against. Many academics and especially Egyptologists are now turning to this way of thinking and with Gardiners spirit and broad knowledge in history and language the history of the ancients and the secrets that they hold are becoming more clear. There are of course dissenters. The author has been accosted for his standpoint and there are still those hardened academics and even non-academics who refuse to even listen. However, there is a major TV documentary in pre-production stages and with interviews planned across the nation on radio and TV the message may soon be accepted as a credible theory.

Stanley Kubrick hailed The Shining as 'the scariest horror film of all time' before its release in 1980. Though the film opened to poor reviews, it has since become one of the most admired horror films in cinema history. Exerting an enormous influence on popular culture, The Shining has spawned a vast array of interpretations and conspiracy theories. Roger Luckhurst's illuminating study of this seminal film explores its themes, tropes and resonances through a detailed analysis of sequences and performances. Situating The Shining in a series of fresh contexts, this book looks at the complex nature of horror cinema at the end of the 1970s and early 80s. Taking the maze of the haunted hotel as a key motif, Luckhurst offers numerous threads with which to navigate the strange twists and turns of this enigmatic film.

The Shining Ones were members of an advanced culture that was almost lost; but their wisdom and their power survived. They preserved the secrets of their advanced knowledge in mythology and legend; they embedded their secret codes in symbolism in art, architecture, the mystery traditions and literary works - including the Bible. The authors have found traces of the influence of The Shining Ones in all the major religions with roots in the ancient world. Gardiner and Osborn have discovered that their secrets and rituals have been hidden and preserved through the centuries, by the Knights Templar, the Rosicrucians and the Freemasons to the present day. Furthermore, they believe that the evolution of civilization has been manipulated by a secret and powerful group of initiates descended from The Shining Ones. They can identify their influence behind science, religion, mysticism and philosophy - and, of course, in the arena of powerful politics. This is an extraordinary story of intrigue and power play at a very human and political level. But it is also the revelation that the Shining Ones had knowledge of the deep spiritual truth that lies at the heart of mankind's yearning for an understanding of the meaning of life and to achieve salvation.

''The Shining Ones''

An Etymological Essay on the Amazigh Roots of Egyptian Civilization

Author: Helene E. Hagan

Publisher: Xlibris Corporation

ISBN: 1462836496

Category: History

Page: 138

View: 2902

The Introduction of the book indicates the necessity to start with the archaeology of the early settlements of the West Bank of the Nile , a territory to be considered as the mother or matrix of all Egyptian civilization. It establishes the pioneer nature of this Etymological Essay in the English language, as most of the studies in keeping with its findings are to be found in the scholarly literature of Europe and North Africa. 1. Archaic Terminology: The chapter traces the origins of early settlements of the northwestern region of Egypt, the desert oases, the Fayum, the region of the Lakes, and the western portion of the delta of the Nile, by Saharan and Libyan archaic people, with specific emphasis on archaic topography which can be directly related to Modern Amazigh spoken today in North Africa (Tamazirt.) 2,The Pillar People: The review of a number of terms from the mythology and ceremonial procedures of dynastic Egypt shows the influence of those early settlers named The People of the Pillars (Intui) on the beliefs and practices perpetuated through centuries in Egypt, and the presence of an all pervasive worship of these early origins: (cult of ancestors.) 3.The Holy rulers of First Princes of Egypt: An intensive comparative review of ancient Egyptian and Modern Amazigh terms reveals that the first noble rulers of the area were of Amazigh origin. A series of families of terms link quite clearly a number of beliefs and practices to the North African cultural complex. 4.Tehuti, time and the Wisdom of the stars is a chapter delving a little more deeply into the cosmogony and cosmology of the early Egyptians, and the roots of that knowledge in archaic practices, which have parallel indicators in North Africa. 5. The Innermost Shrine from The Book of the Dead: The geography of the Land of the Beyond, Tu-at (Du-Ament), and a variety of important indices throughout the Book of the Dead indicate quite clearly that the final return of the defunct to the Blessed Land of the Ancestors was also a step by step description of their claim of descent from these original beings. The rule of “Ma-aa-at,” the organizing principle of an entire civilization for centuries, or ‘NTR,” originated in the area of the Sacred lakes and the ancient settlements of the Fayum and oasis complex. Linguistic comparison with Modern Amazigh continues to indicate the kinship of those people with North African Imazighen (also known as Berbers.) 6. A Conclusion, Notes, and an Appendix, which is the reproduction of an article published in The Amazigh Voice, a publication of the Amazigh Cultural Association in America, indicate the pioneer aspect of such a work and the direction in which further linguistic studies could bring increasing light into areas of Egyptian scholarship heretofore deemed as obscure and/or of barbarous origin. .

From 1980 to 1992, Maoist Shining Path rebels, Peruvian state forces, and Andean peasants waged a bitter civil war that left some 69,000 people dead. Using archival research and oral interviews, Before the Shining Path is the first long-term historical examination of the Shining Path's political, economic, and social antecedents in Ayacucho, the department where the Shining Path initiated its war. This study uncovers rural Ayacucho's vibrant but largely unstudied twentieth-century political history and contends that the Shining Path was the last and most extreme of a series of radical political movements that indigenous peasants pursued. The Shining Path's violence against rural indigenous populations exposed the tight hold of anti-Indian prejudice inside Peru, as rebels reproduced the same hatreds they aimed to defeat. But, this was nothing new. Heilman reveals that minute divides inside rural indigenous communities repeatedly led to violent conflict across the twentieth century.
