Field of Dreams
I just rewatched "Field of Dreams" and am certain there is a submerged esoteric meaning to the film. I don't have a complete thesis in my head yet, but here are a few obversations(But first, I should say that with these I am focusing on what I feel the movie was trying to portray, and not necessairly whether I agree with or believe the movies message to be true. We know that they will present black as white and down as up every chance they get:

I think the field represented the reality we are taking part in. James Earl Jones gives a speech about how "people will come", and at the last scene we see cars lined up for miles to get to the field. I think the cars, which were really just seen as headlights(lights), are our spirits coming down to earth/this universe.



There is a theme of buliding the field allowing great ballplayers from the past to return to "life" and take part in "the game". The movie repeatedly refers to "the game" as being all important and the constant throughout time. Also, these were players who were accused of cheating(throwing games for gambling purposes), led by Shoeless Joe Jackson(missing a shoe=missing an eye???), and kicked out of the league/not allowed to play the game, i.e they were punished.

Are these great players of the game supposed to represent some commonly encountered figures within mythology such as Lucifer, etc, who were punished in the past? As in, this reality was created so that fallen and disgraced gods would have a realm to be worshiped in as the great "players of the game" they once were?

There is also another recuring theme of characters asking if the field is heaven. Keven Costner always tells them it is not, but at the end of the film when his returned father tells him heaven is where dreams come true, he looks around and nods, indicating that he has accepted that the field is heaven if he sees it as such. TPTB are trying to recreate heaven here on earth, so again this fits some of the things we know about them and their plans. Assuming Kevin Costner represents TPTB would make sense in this context, he follows a voice that only he can hear and endures the ridicule of his peers to acclomplish his great work of seeing the field built.

So the thing is I actually really enjoy this film(baseball has always been a connection between me and my dad), so I'm not particularly wanting to look for reasons to get it to fit into "the narrative of the conspiracy" but some of this stuff is too hard to ignore.

What do you think, GLP?

The voice!!!!!!!!

Hey, that reminds me of something else. The credits list "The Voice" as "Himself"

No actor provided?

"Himself??"

Who does that voice???

I think they credited it as 'Himself' as an allusion to the 'Source' / God / Whatever You Wanna Call Him.

Yeah, I'd like to think so. Like I said, I don't want to cast negative light on it unfairly. I love the film. I mean, the damn thing makes me tear up a little every time at the end when he gets to throw the ball around with his father.

And I am not a guy who crys in movies.


Except for this one, and the end of Terminator 2 gets me every time also.

The movie is great, but I see it more as a baseball movie. Baseball is more than just a sport.

"The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America

has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It's been erased like a

blackboard, rebuilt, and erased again. But baseball has marked the time.

This field, this game, is a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all

that once was good, and that could be again. Oh people will come, Ray.

People will most definitely come"

Re: Field of Dreams
Nice non-doom related thread OP.

I feel that the movie represents bridging the gap between the physical world and the world of spirit.

The field is the bridge that was created.

This is only my opinion, of course.
