<refers to Astroworld Concert Security Staff Referred to Dead Concert-Attendees as “Smurfs”.>
This was a very strange synchronicity for me. I had just finished watching “Donnie Darko” for the 3rd or 4th time and had picked up on analogy they were making between Smurfs and human beings and how we are supposedly the Smurfs. Nothing more than an artificial construct of someone else’s imagination. Prisoners inside and matrix and, all and all, a lower caliber of “life form”. It seems that Travis Scott’s team shares this sentiment that us Smurfs are a much lower caliber life form than their Serpent Seed Reptoid race of energy suckling parasites who like to drum up fake worlds and fake gods.
Does one form of life deserve to exist more than another because one happens to be a much more complex and “traditional” in its form and function when compared to the archaic and much simpler “intelligence” that only exists because of it’s more complex counterpart who imagined them in the first place?
We will be facing similar predicaments in the future once artificial intelligence starts to become more mainstream and these sentient machines start to so closely resemble the behavior of human beings that there will be an outcry to consider them “equal” to human beings. This will be a mistake.
So this was a big confirmation for me as to “who” the Smurfs represent. We are the Smurfs. The EL-ites refer to us as the “Smurfs”.
It could be argued that in the movie they were referring to the beings that existed in the tangent universe as the Smurfs and at one point Drew Barrymore’s character postulates that these Smurfs inhabiting this tangent universe should have the same right to exist as the ones that came from the original universe.
