Some Avatar Q&A
Q: There is like so many things i missed....cinema is crap...but i noticed them now after watching it again...
A: I'm glad that you did. It ussually is like this when you watch something with care... movies like these are really meant to be watched many times.
Q: The artificial avatar has human dna in it...how come than that he is allowed to mate with her...he is different dna is different....he is artificial and he has 5 fingers the real navi have 4 fingers.
A: His "made" or "artificial" Avatar is only a different type of humanoid. It is not a matter of being allowed or not allowed, he simply can mate with her because he is also a Na'vi, even though he also has some human DNA in his blood. He is really no different than her. Many humans here on Earth now also are not 100% fully humans and if you see them you really couldn't tell if they are or not. If they have a child with a fully human person then their offspring will still be a humanoid..a mix. The human body is a template. Then you will find many different type of humanoids each with a different characteristics..bird people, reptile people, dragon people, cat people, horse people, etc, etc... jack has 5 fingers because he has human DNA in him.
Q: Both have no body hair... all of them are slim and more or less perfectly shaped...no fat people...they seem to like jewelry/ornaments but not too much...they seem to put importance to the looks?
A: Yes Paschats have very little or no body hair, tall, slender athletic looking and love jewelry..as with any humanoid type...aesthetics and appreciation of beauty is there.
Q: Ma Jake?? My Jake?
A: Yes...her Jake...She already feels him as being hers.
Q: There is also a point in the movie when the main military guy has no head scars...an error with the cgi make-up :)
A: They should be more careful next time.
Q: And there is a very short scene when they go to sleep...it wold seems that singles sleep alone in the net while beneath them there were people together (look at the pic) they look like couples...not sure why they are all together.
A: Yes, in Pandora as anywhere else in the Galaxy, singles of adult age sleep alone. The Omaticaya you saw sleeping together was one family sleeping together. When the mother and father wish to mate, they go do it on a separate net by themselves, and it does not have to be only to procreate...they do enjoy the intimacy of sex on a regular bases.
Q: One thing...why is marriage pre-arranged? Chiefs daughter and the future chief... And than she does it with him...isn't that like a violation of "contract" ?
A: Marriage is only pre-arranged when it comes to the leadership of the clan because the spiritual leader or Priestess cannot be just anyone...as the leader have to be also carefully chosen due to the responsibility of their roles. The fact that she made love with him is not a violation of anything...on the contrary, she was simply following her heart and this is the woman who will be the future spiritual leader of the clan. It seems to tell us that the old "contracts" ways are to be left behind and only follow own own hearts.
Q: They also do not seem to have pre marriage sex or sex for pleasure?
A: There is no marriage as we know it. So there is no such thing as pre marital sex. The Na'vi do enjoy sex for pleasure but are not promiscuous.
Q: Mated for life = no multiple partners = no sharing = no circles?
A: Yes, this is very important...for the Na'vi, once you are mated with a female you are mated for life. There is no multiple partners, no sharing, no "circles" whatever you mean with this...no orgies, no cheating...nothing like this. You simply become one with her and enjoy the rest of your life getting to know each other...through their faults and mistakes, through their qualities and achievements....
Q:And when the future chief finds out about him being with her...nothing is said about it... Doctor lady goes: oh shit But the future chief goes: did u mate with this woman.... (*this* woman....how about using her name?..if he "cares" so much)
A: I know, Grace says "Oh shit" because she did not expect it...nobody did. But Neytiri's future husband does ask if they mated because if they did, he knew there was no way that he can be with her anymore. Did you see how she was willing to fight whoever tried to hurt him when he fell to the ground? He was hers now, and once two come together and become one not only in flesh but spiritually, emotionally and mentally there is no one that can bring them apart. She had chosen and he had to accept it. He said "woman" because he was furious.
Q: Why do the navi cover their body parts....like breasts for example...or is that just so one can show it in the cinema?
A: They do because certain parts of the body are sacred to them. All sexual parts of the body are, but sexual parts are even more. Also, they don't show it in the big screen because it is in a movie and cinema.
Q: When she is showing him how to ride a horse (and at other times) her legs are blue with white strips like the rest of the body but when she is showing him the ikran (the bird) her legs haver something purple on it...why, what is that? Like a riding gear? And does that ikran (seze) has a saddle like a horse? Why do they have to become a hunters to be part of the tribe... hunter=kill? why not something else or is that just to bring it closer to the general public?
A: Yes, it is. It is a sort of hunting gear. It is special clothes to use when hunting to avoid friction when mounting and to clean blades of pray's blood. Seze has a saddle like a horse yes, otherwise they could very easily slip off when flying. They have to become a hunter to be able to "become of age" among the Omaticaya. Yes they kill animals to eat, but this means so much more than that. In Jake's case, it was more to finally become accepted as one of the clan. This is done because becoming a hunter is no easy task. It means you are to be able to find and control your own ikran (Dragon) and become one with it, only then can you be of benefit to the community at large. This is what you have to do in your personal life too. First find your own Dragon...then
have the courage to face it and take control of it...then put it/him into submission and then finally taking complete control of it by flying. This means once you have accomplished that then you are really free and can FLY wherever you want.
Q: What is a taronyu hunter? Taronyu means "hunter" in Na'vi
A: I am still against the use of animals for pleasure...like having a horse doing"gentlemen steps" just and turning it into a fancy snobbish sport and make jump over fences or run for money...or riding it for "experience"....
Some species serve humanity willingly...horses are one of such species. I am also against the abuse of any animal, and soon all of that will change in the New World. Riding a horse, when the horse invites you willingly...is an awesome experience.
Q: I also noticed a funeral...the body was put under the roots of some three... not berried or burned...
A: Yes, the Na'vi return the body to Aywa. They know the soul/spirit is immortal.
Q: Given their "spiritual advancement" they act like "hormone driven" teenagers when was party is announced...and they do not seem to think much since you can not use a bow against a mini gun, grenades and missiles...etc and it is also not pride...pride is different...it is a senseless waist..a lost opportunity to get back to them later...
A: It is called Passion. Passion in humans is a gift. Those "hormone driven" acts also have a place in the Universe and a very important one. They have to defend themselves any way they know how and since they only have bows and arrows that's what they use. They did kill many invaders with them though....don't you remember?
Q: How come that that science guy May just stays there after helping them escape it is year 21xx something...don't they have security cameras in detention/prison block?
A: I'm sure they do..and usually in a movie some minor details like that have to be edited out.
Q: The arches near the three of souls...they look wood...but nature does not shape arches like that...
A: Oh but it does... Those arches were formed by the trees trunks splitting into many different branches and slowly bending with the weight. They are very very old trees.
Q: When Grace (doctor lady) is taken to Eywa she is naked but has green stuff around here...again with the "moral" thing? I mean...given the circumstances...would anyone really care is she is naked or not? (besides religion fundamentalists)
A: The movie is rated PG13 i think....so sorry no full nakedness.
Q: And she gets "plugged in" the body is covered with white things and there is a special shot (twice) showing this white stuff going into the back of her neck....the same as in matrix....It also shows them (the whole tribe) connected with the ground....
A: This is Awya...Mother. These fiber-like threads are very thin roots that are supercharged...very much alive like the neurons in our brains and connect to the back of the neck because that is the exact place where the Pineal Gland is located right there but in the lower center of our brains. So the souls escapes the body through this "wormhole"or "stargate".
Q: And once betrayed...always betrayed....even if u can ride the big bird (not to mention the whole scene about it is missing)...that should not change anything...i do not forgive...no exceptions...never That they "worshiped" him just because he could fly the big bird is an abomination....that she liked him again because of this....is a soap opera...or just something to bring it close to the human monkey but still...it could be made much better than this...
A: The scene was missing due to lack of time and editing. I do forgive...even though I never forget. You should try that someday...it is liberating. And the fact that the Na'vi are capable of doing it speaks very highly of their spiritual maturity and gnosis. The so-called abomination you speak of is a rare occurrence, almost a legend...and to see it realized in front of their very eyes at that precise moment of need I was surprised they did not show more emotion in their reaction!! It is the equivalent of a mass of people witnessing a UFO landing. That she "liked" him again?? She was already IN LOVE with him. He was to be her mate forever and I'm sure she was dying to see him again. This is not soap opera! It surprises me that you could be so cold and make such a dry and harsh statement. Have you no heart? I don't think I would like to go see a movie in which you are the writer of the script or the producer that's for sure!
Q: And in the final battle...are they using "walk i talkies" ? The radio communication? Like bows and modern communication equipment? Wtf?
A: lol Wtf you say? Use your imagination my love. Those communication devises must've come from the "visitors". But you have the movie so next time you watch it can watch out to see if you catch any Omaticaya using them at the beginning...I don't think so.
Q: A large portion of movie is dedicated to action-destruction it could be different...but than the people might no longer like it....
A: So true. Humans are so used to war they equivalent action with death. very sad.
Q: When she sees him...his human like...the cripple one...i wonder why there is no reaction like: "so this is you than?" etc....
A: Is that what you would've said? lol I can only imagine! Actually, this is one of my favorite scenes. The energy is very very powerful when she finally sees him as a human, we can feel her love for him is true...no matter the "Avatar" he is using. She is in Love with him...his soul.. not his Avatar! I always cry in this scene. I know it is the same face, same reaction when I will finally get to see my true love face to face for the first time!
Q: I most likely still missed things....the 2nd part of the movie is more action like and would probably have see it again. (you came online towards the end so i was not attentive as before)
A: We always do miss things. that's the beauty of owning a nice movie, you can watch it over and over and see different little details every time...
Much Love from me,
