Visual Zohar
Hello,

After having watched Battlestar Galactica (2004), it occurred to me that it was in fact a documentary, line by line recreation of the Zohar. Even down to the preface, (The Letters, The Lily, etc.).

Is anyone else aware of this? Is this common knowledge? It seemed very startling to me, both strange and beautiful. I have been writing about it on my wiki dedicated to the subject, called The Five Gates. (please Google the name if you would like to see what I'm asking you about)

Anyways, if this is not common knowledge, then very soon, it seems, scholars of Judaism will very much want to see that show in its entirety. Its almost overwhelming.

VTY
David

RE: Visual Zohar
It's not intended as a documentary to my knowledge, but the fictional story is very clearly inspired by the Kabbalah and Hinduism, filtered through the lens of sci-fi. I think basing its cosmology on these two real spiritual beliefs lent it a sense of authenticity that made the show very enjoyable.

I'm back baby! Thanks for everyone who sent me PMs asking what had happened to me.

I believe this is what mobius meant.
