Author, lawyer, historian, theologian, philosopher and 32nd Degree Mason, Robert W. Sullivan IV joined us for a sparkling conversation about his new book, Cinema Symbolism: A Guide To Esoteric Imagery In Popular Movies. Cinema Symbology analyzes and connects occult, numerological, astrological, mythological, alchemical, Tarot, and kabbalistic symbolism contained The Exorcist, Back to the Future, Star Wars (Episodes I-VI), The Lord of the Rings, The Wizard of Oz, Black Swan, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, the James Bond movies, The Matrix, The Shining, and many others. In this excerpt from Robert W. Sullivan IV’s interview on Far Out Radio with Scott Teeters, Robert explained how Frank Baum and his wife Maud Gage Baum were both active members of The Theosophical Society, founded by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky in 1975. The book is an allegory of the political and economic upheaval of the 1890s that started with the Panic of 1893 that kicked off the serious economic depression (many claim this was engineered) that eventually lead to the formation of The Federal Reserve. While the social, political and economic metaphors are obvious, if one is aware of the Panic of 1893 and the subsequent Depression, what it not obvious is how Baum weaved into the plot and characters many of his Theosophical Society, esoteric beliefs. So, what most see as just a lovely fantasy story is in fact steeped in history and metaphysics. Robert W. Sullivan thoroughly analyzes The Wizard of Oz in his book, this is just a taste!
