“CHAPPiE” and the New Transhumanist Religion


CHAPPiE is a movie about a police robot with advanced artificial intelligence who gets kidnapped by gangsters. However, the true story of the movie is told through allegory and symbols: CHAPPiE is about the abandonment of old religions for a new, futuristic, transhumanist religion.

Warning: Massive spoilers ahead!

CHAPPiE was created by Neill Blomkamp’s, the South African director who is also behind District 9 and Elysium. As in his two previous films, Blomkamp hides a deeper message beneath the guns, the robots and the gangsters, one that even goes in the spiritual realm.

At first glance, the movie appears to be an odd mix of science fiction and Zef aesthetics (South African street culture championed by the rap duo Die Antwoord, who also star in the movie), but there is more than enough symbolism, mainly Biblical, to read a second level of interpretation. Indeed, the story of a sentient robot that becomes aware of its own “mortality” (its battery is dying out) evokes religious and existential questions in the real world where intelligent robots are just about to mix with humanity. However, the movie does not raise its questions or invite reflection. It simply proposes an answer. And that answer can apparently accomplish what religions have been promising since the dawn of time: Immortality. The answer CHAPPiE provides? Transhumanism.


The concept of transhumanism has been mentioned often on this site because it is an important part of the mass media agenda. In a nutshell, transhumanism is about the merging of humans with robots in order to create “enhanced” humans. Along with the pragmatic, scientific side of transhumanism comes an entire philosophy and belief system, which mainly rejects the concepts that God’s creation is perfect and that humans should not play God.

Max More, the father of transhumanism, eloquently described the spiritual thinking behind the movement in his 1990 essay “In Praise of the Devil”. Here’s an excerpt: (you can download the full original article here).

“The Devil – Lucifer – is a force for good (where I define ‘good’ simply as that which I value, not wanting to imply any universal validity or necessity to the orientation). ‘Lucifer’ means ‘light-bringer’ and this should begin to clue us in to his symbolic importance. The story is that God threw Lucifer out of heaven because Lucifer had started to question God and was spreading dissension among the angels. We must remember that this story is told from the point of view of the Godists (if I may coin a term) and not from that of the Luciferians (I will use this term to distinguish us from the official Satanists with whom I have fundamental differences). The truth may just as easily be that Lucifer resigned from heaven.

God, being the well-documented sadist that he is, no doubt wanted to keep Lucifer around so that he could punish him and try to get him back under his (God’s) power. Probably what really happened was that Lucifer came to hate God’s kingdom, his sadism, his demand for slavish conformity and obedience, his psychotic rage at any display of independent thinking and behaviour. Lucifer realised that he could never fully think for himself and could certainly not act on his independent thinking so long as he was under God’s control. Therefore he left Heaven, that terrible spiritual-State ruled by the cosmic sadist Jehovah, and was accompanied by some of the angels who had had enough courage to question God’s authority and his value-perspective. Lucifer is the embodiment of reason, of intelligence, of critical thought. He stands against the dogma of God and all other dogmas. He stands for the exploration of new ideas and new perspectives in the pursuit of truth.”
– Max More, In Praise of the Devil, Atheist Notes 003

As you can see, More describes Lucifer as a force for good who gives humanity the tools to fight Jehova’s tyranny. This vision is perfectly in line with elite’s Luciferian doctrine as taught in occult secret societies.

CHAPPiE provides a 101 of this mindset in terms that everybody, especially young people, can understand. Mostly, it sells an idea that is being promoted in all kinds of media, especially video game: A robot body is better than a human body.

The Premise

In the not-so-distant future of 2016, the crime-ridden city of Johannesburg has replaced its entire police force with intelligent robots programmed to fight crime. These robots are incredibly effective and boast one massive advantage over their human counterparts: They cannot die and they can be repaired easily.

In one scene, we see a robot get a defective part replaced quickly and easily by another part. Can't easily replace the arm of a human cop, that's for sure.
This robot gets its defective part replaced quickly and easily by a worker. You can’t replace the arm of a human cop that easily, that’s for sure. The movie often emphasizes the durability and practicality of robots versus the fragility of organic bodies. Making the masses feel vulnerable in their bodies and selling the superiority of robotic parts is an important element of the transhumanist agenda.

Deon Wilson, the creator of these police robots is widely praised for his invention. He, however, has a more important project in the works: A robot with artificial intelligence so advanced that it can learn by itself, have feelings and even write poems – named CHAPPiE.

CHAPPiE is, however, “kidnapped” by a couple of gangsters who want to train it to commit crimes. Thus ensues a bunch of hilarious adventures that barely make sense. However, beyond the gun-toting action scenes are dialogs and symbols that tell a story with a spiritual dimension. Before this happens, though, the movie makes sure you love that robot by making it as human as possible.

Humanizing the Robot

Although it is not alive and not a human being, CHAPPiE is thoroughly humanized in the movie. Because his artificial intelligence needs to learn everything from scratch, CHAPPiE starts off with the charming innocence and ignorance of a child. Yolandi quickly becomes his “mommy” as she treats him like a child. At one point she says:

“He’s so cute! He’s like a baby.”

She even reads him bedtime stories.

Yolandi in bed with Chappie as she reads him a story.
Yolandi puts her hand on Chappie’s heart … if he had one.

After reading a bedtime story, Yolandi tells CHAPPiE a bunch of things that do not apply to him … because he is a robot. She does not appear to see that.

“It’s not so much how you look that’s special. It’s what’s inside. That’s what makes you different. See, it’s who you really are. Inside. Your soul.

You see…The outside, this is just temporary. When you die, the soul inside goes to the … next place. The thing inside …that’s what mommy loves. Mommy loves you.”

She then proceeds to hug the robot.

Chappie walks around with a doll representing his mommy, making the audience say "Awww that robot knows what love is!". Nope, its a robot.

At one point, we see Yolandi walking around with a t-shirt (she apparently made between gun fights) featuring Chappie with a red heart. They are REALLY trying to humanize that robot.

Now that it is established that we all love the adorable baby robot, we see it go through some tough challenges. That’s a great way to make us love it even more.

Chappie gets thrown on the streets by his father to toughen him up. He ends up getting beat up by a bunch of thugs as dramatic music plays in the background. Poooor Chappie! :(

The Spiritual Struggle

As CHAPPiE’s intelligence grows, it faces the same existential questions humans have been bogged with since the dawn of time. It is also exposed to two opposite philosophies.

At first, CHAPPiE is mainly exposed to the one who created him, Deon. By constantly referring to himself as “his maker”, the movie strongly suggests that Deon is, to the robot, God  – who is also referred to as “the maker”.

Chappie's viewpoint as its creator teaches it the word watch.
CHAPPiE’s viewpoint as its maker teaches it the word “watch”.

Knowing that CHAPPiE is surrounded by shady characters, Deon attempts to teach it moral values and to do the right thing.

“CHAPPiE please have respect for me. I’m your maker. Listen to me, I’m your maker. I brought you into this world, okay? This is serious. You mustn’t engage in these people’s lifestyle choices. No counting narcotics, no robberies, no crimes.

And you’ve got to promise me, your maker, that you’ll never do any of those things, all right? You can’t break a promise.”

CHAPPiE’s mommy and daddy are however less bent on moral rectitude. Quite to the contrary, CHAPPiE’s daddy is eager to teach him that the world is a cruel, savage place where only the strong survive.

By teaching him the harsh reality of life and by making him aware of his own mortality, the Ninja turns CHAPPiE against his creator.
By teaching him the harsh reality of life and by making him aware of his own mortality, Ninja turns CHAPPiE against his maker.

After witnessing a dogfight, Ninja tells CHAPPiE:

-Out there … in the wild … it’s hard. You’re either that dog [points to the dog that is still alive] or that dog [points to the dead dog]. If you wanna survive, CHAPPiE … you must fight. What are you gonna do when that battery runs out?

-I die? CHAPPiE die?

-Deon, he put you in a broken body.

-Deon’s my maker. It doesn’t make any sense. He wouldn’t just make me so I could die. Deon loves me, daddy.

-I can get you a new body, but it takes lots of monies.

In this short dialogue, we get an important chunk of transhumanist philosophy and its spiritual undercurrent. As an intelligent robot that has become aware of his mortality, CHAPPiE realizes that his maker has put him in a situation where death is unavoidable and that the only way to escape it (crimes) is forbidden.

While Deon, the maker, teaches moral values, Ninja appeals to the animalistic, materialistic side. He compares himself to a dog in a dogfight. From a spiritual standpoint, he is Satan opposing God.

The liscence plate on Ninja's car has 666 on it. Other than appealing to the shock value of ZEF fashion, the number 666 indicates that Ninja represents Satan, the one who opposes the maker.
The license plate on Ninja’s car has 666 on it. Other than appealing to the shock value of Zef, the number 666 indicates that Ninja represents Satan, the one who opposes the maker.

After fully engaging in Ninja’s gangster lifestyle, CHAPPiE encounters his maker again. Then ensues a dialog that can also be interpreted as a dialog between mankind and God himself.

-Daddy told me about you, Deon. About how you made me in a body that will die. You are my maker. Why’d you make me so I could die?

-I didn’t make you so you could die, CHAPPiE.

-I want to live, I want to stay here with my mommy. I don’t want to die.

-You’ve become so much more than I’ve could ever have imagined. How was I supposed to know that you would become … you?

In this dialog, Deon says that he could not predict that CHAPPiE would turn into such an intelligent and self-aware robot. This is a reflection of transhumanist philosophy where it is believed that humanity has reached a level of intelligence that surpasses the rest of creation and that God is unfairly limiting its potential by placing it in a physical world where it doomed to die. Believing that they can transcend this mortal state to become gods themselves, transhumans seek man-made technology to achieve nothing less than immortality – the ultimate goal of most religions (who generally refer to spiritual immortality).

The program at the core of CHAPPiE is called genesis.dat. It is yet another subtle reference to the underlying Biblical theme of the movie.

As CHAPPiE seeks to escape his body to escape inevitable death (his battery running out) Deon keeps telling him that it is impossible and that he should simply accept his fate. CHAPPiE is however convinced that he can acquire the knowledge necessary to reach his goal, effectively rejecting the warnings of his maker.

-The problem is greater than your battery. Because you are conscious. You cannot be copied because you’re not data. We don’t know what consciousness is … we cannot move it.

-CHAPPiE can figure it. I can know what it is, then I can move me.

-You can’t move it, I’m sorry.

-You said to me I mustn’t let anybody say that I cannot do something. Daddy says he can get me bodies for the moneys. I hate you … go away.

This dialog represents transhumanist’s rejection of the belief that “playing god” is wrong. Transhumanists have complete faith in science and technology to achieve immortality.

There is, however, one main obstacle to CHAPPiE’s quest: Vincent Moore, a jerk … who is also a Christian.

The Evil Christian Guy

Like Deon, Vincent Moore designs robots at the company Tetravaal. His robot is over awful.

Vincent Moore, CHAPPiE's nemesis wears cross pendant, indicating that he's Christian.
Vincent Moore, CHAPPiE’s nemesis wears a cross pendant, indicating that he’s Christian. Behind him is the robot cop he created, the Moose.

While it is not immediately obvious, the movie leaves enough clues to indicate that Moore is a staunch Christian. For instance, he tells Deon they should go to church together (after threatening him with a gun). Later, when he hears CHAPPiE talking about living forever, we see Moore doing the sign of the cross. He then proceeds to call CHAPPiE a “godless freak”. As CHAPPiE becomes increasingly self-aware, Vincent turns into the “bad guy” of the movie and keeps messing with CHAPPiE and his maker.

While Deon created intelligent, autonomous robot cops that are used by the Johannesburg police force, Vincent’s robot is a big, dumb, ineffective machine that cannot think for itself. In fact, it needs a human to tell it what to do. Is the Moose meant to represent Christians who cannot think for themselves?

One thing is for sure, Vincent hates CHAPPiE and everything it represents. At one point, he kidnaps it and hurts it bad.

Vincent cuts one of CHAPPiE's limbs because he doesn't like him. Even if he's sawing off a part of a robot, the movie makes the scene appear as a horrific crime, complete with CHAPPiE's child-like pleads for mercy.
Vincent cuts one of CHAPPiE’s limbs off because he doesn’t like him. Although he’s basically sawing off a robot part made of titanium, the movie turns the scene into a horrific crime, complete with CHAPPiE’s child-like pleads for mercy. This makes viewers say: “Poooor CHAPPiE 🙁 I really hate that Vincent guy!”

Vincent tells CHAPPiE:

“You know that simple AI program makes you think you’re real. You know what? You are not. Just a bunch of wires.”

He’s right. But, since he’s the bad guy, viewers believe that he’s wrong. Also, as the bad guy, Vincent does other awful things: He causes city-wide chaos by shutting down every single robot cop in the Johannesburg. He then uses his Moose robot to kill CHAPPiE’s mommy.

CHAPPiE then gets very mad. He finds Vincent and beats the crap out of him.

Since he's not a robot, Vincent cannot easily recover from the butt kicking he received. Making the human body feel fragile, inadequare and inpracticle compared to robot parts is an important part of transhumanist agenda.
Since he’s not a robot, Vincent cannot easily recover from the butt kicking he received.

In the end, pretty much everybody around CHAPPiE gets badly hurt by the Moose. What’s the answer to save all these fragile humans? Turning them into robots, of course.

Robotizing Humans

After humanizing the robot to make him relatable and “adorable”, the movie then proceeds to robotize humans. Indeed, the people closest to CHAPPiE, his maker and his mommy, are facing death because they’ve been shot.

Despite being a god-like maker to CHAPPiE, Deon is nevertheless human, therefore, fragile and mortal compared to our robot overlords.
Despite being a god-like maker to CHAPPiE, Deon is still a human. He is therefore fragile and mortal compared to our robot overlords.
CHAPPiE's mommy received several gunshots from the Moose and died. Human bodies are so weak compared to robots.
CHAPPiE’s mommy received several gunshots from the Moose and died. She is here being laid to rest … but not for long.

Luckily for them, CHAPPiE discovered how to save a person’s entire consciousness on a single file and he discovered how to upload it to a robot body. In short, he found a way to make humans and intelligent robots immortal. CHAPPiE is, therefore, the savior of humanity … and robots.

After his conscisouness was transfered to a robot body, Deon looks at his dead human body.
After his consciousness was transferred to a robotic body, Deon touches his dead human body. Goodbye weak human body, hello titanium robot body.

Since CHAPPiE saved his mommy’s consciousness on a USB drive, he can also bring her back from the dead. She was therefore resurrected … like Jesus.

The movie ends with Yolandi, CHAPPiE's mommy, having a body custom body manufactured into her likeness. Sony would love to be selling those.

In Conclusion

After understanding the philosophical undercurrent of the movie, CHAPPiE becomes less of an entertainment product and more of an infomercial for transhumanism. Beneath the CGI and the actions scenes are arguments pleading for transhumanism as the only way to achieve human salvation.

Since transhumanism is about the merging of humans with robots, the movie blurs the line between what makes a human and what makes a robot. First, CHAPPiE is thoroughly humanized –  he is shown growing from child-like innocence into humanity-saving genius. He also loves his mommy very much. The movie even brushes on questions such as: Are intelligent robots “real”? Do they have rights? And so forth.

Then, after thoroughly displaying the fragility of the human body, the movie proceeds to depict the robotization of humans as the way to achieve immortality. As seen above, this robotization was achieved after a period of tribulation between CHAPPiE and his maker which can be interpreted as a period of tribulation between humanity and God. Indeed, through CHAPPiE’s rebellion against his maker to become immortal (and to become a maker himself), the movie describes transhumanism’s rebellion against religions that considers God’s creations as perfect and unalterable. For transhumanists, God left humans in an imperfect body to live in a dangerous physical world. And that needs to be corrected. As Max More stated:

“No more gods, no more faith, no more timid holding back. Let us blast out of our old forms, our ignorance, our weakness, and our mortality. The future belongs to posthumanity.”
– Max More, On becoming posthuman.

Although transhumanist rhetoric goes against religions, it nevertheless requires you to have blind faith in science and technology to salvage humanity and to achieve immortality. And CHAPPiE is one of its many holy books.

it is stated literally in the bible that satan is the "lord of this world"- a dualistic world where no good exists without evil. no pleasure without pain. i definitely DONT want to live forever here. im sure there are higher places that we can only reach by going through that door called DEATH. to die is like waking up from an intense dream. no matter if it was good or bad, just moments later we laugh about it. cos it wasnt real. not real compared to the state of awakening from it. thats what i think. the silly concept of "saving consciousness on a hard disk" is just that. silly. it comes from very shallow people obviously who think the mind and soul is nothing else than the sum of our memories. its very naive. a more mature approach to that topic is p. k. dicks novel "do androids… Read more »

Yes. I hear you on the evolving and returning from a dream. "They" want to live forever and start harvesting human souls via technology to be "one who is like god".
Seems like a lot of effort to be psychotic. Mad science.

I think you’re all right, but since you brought up the dreaming etc. I was thinking to myself, there are 2 scenarios within the “phase of transfer”, 1- the true you is no more and only your soul goes on to the next level. Your consciousness is duplicated and mimics your thinking and behavior in its new droid body based on your way of living. Sort of that “SOMA” pc game thing, where a robot of you feels anxious of the human to robot transfer (when actually it’s just an A.I that thinks it was human in a previous life. 2- We are doomed to eternal life suffering as 50/50 Human-robot because we get body transplants like will smith in “I, robot”, which would lead the engineers to integrate something in the brain to not allow us to rebel against authority and probably suffer from the lack of feeling human… Read more »
"The program at the core of CHAPPiE is called genesis.dat. It is yet another subtle reference to the underlying Biblical theme of the movie." actually, i believe that the core sentient program as created by deon (for chappie) was called "consciousness.dat"; all successive uploads or downloads of consciousness were labeled as such but preceded by the person's name. the "genesis.dat" program was the one created by vincent moore, which was uploaded as a virus to disable the cpu of the scout robots, and thus also took down chappie's consciousness, until his creator quarantined the virus and rebooted him. a subtle mistake perhaps, but likely crucial to the symbolic undertones of the movie, nonetheless. it's also worth noting that chappie's model number was 22, and if you look up genesis 2:2, it reads: "And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the… Read more »

There is nothing "eloquent" about what Moore wrote. Just more of Satan's lies.

MKULTRA mind control creates a kind of robot, but an organic one. It takes a creation of God with a soul and independent mind, and turns it into a robot that only does what it is told to do.

I was very annoyed by that movie. Especially when chappie kept sayin all the time "why are people like this" and after that he proceeded to ruthless behaviour. The same thing he condemns people for. Absolutely one of the most annoying Th bullsh*t ever produced.

Word of Advice: If the movie plot sounds stupid and looks stupid, don't go see it! I mean come on, common sense tells you how dumb this movie is. The only reason why movies like this and Star Wars sell is because people want to fantasize while watching a film. Wake up people! Most movies nowadays are garbage as it is. These movies can only affect you if you let it happen by watching their crap. So don't waste your money, you are better off.

Well before this movie was a movie called Short Circuit. Which this movie is basically a rip off of (Short circuit is probs a rip off of another movie)..

The robot in Short Circuit's 'tag line' Was 'Johnny 5, is alive' .. he came alive after being struck by lightening .. Very confusing, because I cant see why lucifer would want to create a race of robots.. tbh

IMO, the theory would be that Lucifer would want to be God like in creating his own race or kind, that would his servants, to his believes, or ideas. Truly Lucifer & God are very similar in this thinking. Both want to be king.


The fact that Hugh Jackman is the bad guy totally fits in with destroying the youth, the kids that loved Hugh Jackman in the other robot movie, where he's the good guy, will get cognitive dissonance and get all weirded out, just like the Miley Cyrus groopies, build them up to shut them down.

Thank you V.C., been waiting for this one! WTH! The scene with Yolanda and Chappie in bed. Yuck. Why is an underaged girl, under the covers with a police robot? Look deep into that picture. Note the drawings on the wall, child-like cartoon drawings of a girl figure: look from right to left, girl is crying, next smiling, next open mouth and to the left, wait for it —ONE-EYE face behind Chappie. Also, check out what is on the table: dark brown, either phallic or fecal object statue with cartoon hands and eyes, and a Santa Clause hat. On the wall are photos of a man (probably related film character), naked chest exposed. I'm definitely not diggin' the robots!

The fecal object is Mr. Hanky the x-mas poo from south park.
I saw it too and thought it was interesting to have it in there.

Thanks for the id.

There is also a rainbow, reference to dissociation, and multiple American flags, which increasingly seem to indicate the neocon and neoliberal imperialist militarism and capitalism of modern America rather than its ostensibly democratic heritage.

Yeah! Fleurdamour, if anyone can get to the next level it's you 😀

So Yolandi is 31. She still looks like a child in that photo to me. And I don't like that.

Death is a mercy. Whomever wants to live forever is only doing it out of fear of eternal punishment or they think we're truly evolved apes (even though there's not ONE shred of evidence in favor for that ridiculous claim). It's been shown, though, that people who've lost their sense of smell often commit suicide. Just that one sense is gone but it affects their whole lives. When you literally cannot taste life, why would you WANT to live on in a metal body? Makes no sense to the soulful.

@Dixie. Death is ONLY mercy and peace IF you're a BORN AGAIN CHRISTIAN because their soul is saved and they will go to heaven and be in peace, IF they lived their life according to the WORD OF GOD(the BIBLE).IF the person isn't saved then when they die there will be no peace.Instead they will be tormenting in HELL for ETERNITY.

I never wanna live without the pleasures of my five senses. What a life that would be…

Do quadriplegics and paraplegics all want to die as well, considering they're relegated to wheelchairs and have lost the majority of their senses as well? Sheesh…

You're missing the point. You can lose all your legs and arms and still have soul

The Luciferians sure love their bullshit about acknowledging so-called "God-like" philosophies from Lucifer so its not wonder why that book "In Praise of the Devil" explains everything about Humans trying to become Gods with all that occult stuff.

As for that movie, never realized how stupid it was watching it, although I seen it on a bootleg copy and sure does have transhumanism written all over it. I rather value my conscience more as a human than become some idiot robot who might not be the same if his own "data" is transferred from his own dead body into a machine.

Clearly that movie was a waste of time for me, but the hidden symbols about transhumanism is clearly evident about soul-searching robots in the biggest failure ever to play or challenge God himself by Luciferians.

Great analysis and thank you for doing this!

Blomklompf (whatever)'s films are juvenile and simplistic, which often indicate some kind of agenda. These are not films for thinking adults. "Blade Runner" is a masterpiece because it suggests relationships between the humans and the replicants that this film only toys with in a cheery, TV commercial kind of way. The replicants of "Blade Runner" are confused and furious they were created at all, deceived as they are by false, implanted memories, and determined to extract more time from their creator (Tyrell). Truly Luciferian creations. They are poetic characters because they are doomed, born out of diabolical beginnings – not sure of their purpose beyond various kinds of slavery. Each of the replicants experiences a grim end (aside from Rachel, a newer model who is still quickly running out of time). The predicament of the replicants is a high-speed, heightened version of the mortal experience, and asks questions about our… Read more »

Hmmm… great analysis and breakdown VC, thanks

Almost all the films, are nothing more than "shadows", that viewers, who spend their lives in the cave (Plato …), exchange for light …. Get out of the cave … leave the cinemas, to "usual" producers …The true God will guide us out of darkness.

Waitaminnit- a USB DRIVE?! You mean the thing that can hardly hold all my movies I want to bring with me on vacation? That thing can hold my consciousness? Wow, there must be way less to me than I thought. And here I thought I was an infinite being of unquantifiable mystery. Well, more fool me… Anyway, great article. I'll add my two cents to the discussion: -I postulate that Vincent represents the jealous ANGELS who hate mankind because God gave man more freedom and free will and love that previously used to be lavished on only them. Thus, they, like Vincent, are obsessed with creations that do only what they're told, with no free will. -The movie doesn't even have to strongly suggest that Deon represents god- his name is a classic spoon-feeding play on words: Deon/ Deity/ Deism- "Deus" is Latin for God or Deity. Deon=Deus. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deus -Something… Read more »

This earth we inhabit is God's greatest masterpiece. It's beauty is unparalleled to any painting. Once you start traveling and seeing all wonders of this world…it definitely elevates your faith in a higher power. So…I think the elites want immortality with the rest of us (90% of the world population) out of the picture…eugenics. The elite also want immortality bc they are probably not going to heaven. Personally, I wouldn't mind a life extender if it meant my quality of life stayed the same along with my loved ones. But yeah, the elites want to enjoy this paradise w/o the rest of us. they believe there are too many humans on this earth (total bs). They want the earth for themselves and they also believe they are Gods if they can achieve their plan ..they seem to believe they have the technology to do this.

Yep, this is def a propaganda film!!! And, I encourage all VC readers to check out Alex Jones (as I suspect that VC himself is a listener). The team of social scientists and psychologists who worked on this "movie" know exactly what they're doing. More mind control propaganda for the unconscious masses to consume. Robots are non-threatening and everybody needs one, etc, etc.

The plan is for these Robots to take your job and replace YOU over the next 25 years. That sounds great but it actually just means a lot fewer jobs than there are now–jobs that won't come back. And, it means they don't *need* people anymore…kind of scary. also, the Artificial Intelligence on the new robots is so good, that they can become unpredictable/ dangerous. So the robots that are coming cannot be controlled completely, just fyi.

Actress Yolandi Visser ("Yolandi") is a member of the band Die Antwoord. One of Die Antwoord's previous music videos featured Visser in the role of a mentally-disturbed Fallen Angel.

Her image draws pictures of young people lost while on lsd to me, not yet quite out of it, and in denial of the consequences.

Ok so let's pretend like it is possible to save someone's consciousness as data inside a USB key or whatever, and then stick it Inside a robot, would the core essence of the individual be transferred along with the code?
To me this is the real message of this movie, that through all the bullshit it showcases it purposely occultst any concept of soul.
If anyone was to transfer the content of his brain into something else, something robotic, it wouldn't transcend the original, but instead create a souless copy of it.

As a South African I can say that most South Africans HATE Die Antwoord with Yolandi and Ninja.
They are white trash and stupid who love to use shock value in their music videos. Pathetic really…
So sad to see the Director of District 9 use such a cheap method to get peope to watch his new movie.
I haven't seen this movie (or even heard of it as a matter of fact which is weird, because I live here).
I don't know why they keep pushing this Transhumanism agenda – they'll never be able to create or recreate what God has made. Doesn't matter how good their technology is, the closest they'll get to the human brain is a retarded 3 year old.

The idea is that you the viewer identify as Chappie. You already have some belief that you could be just a machine, just a biological machine and the movie leverages this belief. It also leverages your subconscious hatred of God in that all your suffering is simply the result of how God created you and is doing to you rather than what you are doing to yourself. And then of course providing you with a savior the only logical savoir for atheism ergo transhumanism.


believe in whatever you want but if it comes to get old or sick, everyone would get a chance to get a second life. our body is just our shell. there’s no prove there’s life after death, so I rather put my bet on a second chance here.

When you really think about this issue…how is what the transhumanists are offering any different than what most religions offer if you believe in them? A life beyond this one. A heaven. Immortality. Existence outside of our mortal body. It begs the question… how is it any different than the idea which was sold you to along the way, by various people who wrote various books which were passed down through various ages. “Believe in me and you will live forever” vs “give me your brain on a disk and you will live forever”. I’m not trying to hate on any one religion, but the deeper you think about it – the concepts are truly the same. One has to ask the question though, how much *life* exists inside a machine, if only your memories and thoughts, and inner-self are left to appreciate the world of “human robots” among the… Read more »

on my last point, I believe in the bible it says there will be a “new earth”…. then I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth passed away, and there is no longer any sea

Thank you
Great information as always
Also on the photo where she is wearing white with the robot with the red heart, the guy next to her has a baphomet horned head on his shirt

Are you daft, that’s a kudu (a type of South African antelope) that is usually used as symbol in the SA military.

Good one VC, I see this article interrelated to Rick Ross track "one of us" ft Nas…With the chorus saying "You getting money, got a body then you one of us
That was deep…

Just another film to show how The "Elite" envision the future to be…..All these films are to desensitize the viewers without knowing the true meaning or agenda behind them. Thanks VC.

I never liked this movie. Period! It was all so weird. Ugh


HI An entertaining movie, so few are these days. Sci fi has always had an equal helping of satire. Don't assume everyone involved is pushing an agenda. I enjoy your work VC, it seems to me that the Christians are pretty on it with the Luciferian agenda, which makes sense as you and the evil powers that be are reading from the same source material. I;m grateful for the information you guys bring to light but I can't help feeling that you're different sides of the same coin. I am not an atheist but I am deeply opposed to religion and dogma, the church is in the heart. Religion is a tool for the control of people by those who pursue power. Only banking and money can compete in terms of power and control over people. I believe that Zionism is the creation of the banking and royal dynasties of… Read more »

aaaahhh…the age-old false promise of the tempter…if you eat this, your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God…

The idea of transforming humans into metallic robots is ludicrous. The only plausible concept would entail preserving the brain and nervous system along with the tissue that physically contacts both, into some form of sustainable preservation and enshrouding such a transformation in a fully believable artificial body. This would require the utilization of a very advanced technological capability. It is likely that a very advanced civilization would pursue the creation of such technologies. Such technologies would probably take millions of years of research to develop. Anyone who might be so preserved would have to feel that he or she was still a biological entity and certainly not a metal robot.

Not the first time a robot is humanized…


the robot on Short Circuit Johnny 5 1 and 2

Blade runner

Robo cop

A. I. Artificial Intelligence

The Stepford Wives

The Iron Giant

Big Hero 6

I am not dogging the movies but this is just a lllllllong line of movies to humanize robot… there are others but these stood out.

You can watch their video Evil Boy the uncensored version on you tube its very satanic & creepy to say the least.

The mark of the Beast….

Wow, this kinda goes with an article I was reading earlier today online. I am glad to see that others are starting to wake up and smell the c_rap.. transhumanism here we come.. ugh!
Check it out here http://www.newswithviews.com/Duigon/lee325.htm

I am surprised at how stupid satan really is…how pride has made him blind..sick…how can you not see…that god is really your Self…if you deny god ..you deny your Self…the inner self…the child…the crazy wisdom …

Tao..the way..means…whatever is…is there…that which is…the way it is…ever changing…unfolding…unpredictable…that is God…
not..nazi uniform programmed machines…

Sounds very Gnostic in the faith department, actually.

I bet a lot of you guys who are in your 30's like me remember the Knight Rider TV series. And I bet all of you who were fans of the series got very fond of KITT. KITT is just a car with a computer inside that talks and helps the main protagonist in a lot of ways. Since KITT was designed with a very advanced AI, it quickly becomes friends with the people for whom it works for. So, KITT is no more "it", but "he". He becomes a prominent character in the series and even develops certain feelings, opinions, likes and dislikes. KITT is funny in a very innocent way and if anything bad happens to him you get really mad. You always want KITT to be happy and to be ok. There are some few lines in the series where KITT also wonders about his future. He… Read more »
NoOOOOO not KITT!!!! But you are so totally right about that one. Talk about indoctrination, for the next few years, I planned to buy a TransAm for my first car.The next few years after that, it was the Fiero — mostly because how similar it was to the TransAm. Acquaintances and I to this day chuckle whenever we see TransAm -ike cars and say "ahah — there's KITT! When are we going to get a car that does all that stuff?" The first thing I thought of when I saw the CHAPPIE promotions was the movie "Short Circuit" which came out in the later 1980s. And yep, it was all about the cute funny machines that we made our friends. But if you think about it, it goes back farther than that — Do you remember the Herbie series from Disney? Herbie was Volkswagen Bug that somehow became alive, and… Read more »

see my list below of movies that humanize robot… KITT is a good one!

first one that jumped in my brain was Wall-E

Sorry for the typos:
kind of brainwash**
machines can be our friends**

Did you see the video for How Deep Is Your Love? The girl is clearly MK'd. Probably the most blatant one to date. Great song though.

Don't the folks IN movies WATCH movies?? Or read books, at all? CHAPPIE is the kinder gentler version of AI, as are a lot of the recent movies about "next step" artificial intelligence. (I saw age of ultron about 2 weeks ago, so if this sounds like a tirade….) This latest batch seems to imply, sure there's a few bad AI units out there, but see how "good" all this could be if we just…. hand over the earth's civilization to robots….all would be so good….. Has everyone in the media forgotten the movies that came out just before this warm and fuzzy batch of robots? That series of AI movies always had the AI logically infer that given human's propensity to destroy everything in its path, that humans MUST be contained at best, obliterated off the planet as the height of reason, or, a la Matrix, exploited for the… Read more »

Sorry, this was a reply to frdmntrth, but it posted in the wrong place.

Yolandi's robot face at the end looks like the masks in Porcelain Face MK Ultra programming. Incidentally so does the creepy logo for the tv show Once Upon a Time, which also includes a reference to the Fall via the apple of knowledge.

VC does amazing research. Regrettably there is one shocking reality that almost all of us, including VC, have been affected by; that is, a shocking distortion of religion has occurred which has blurred our judgment and hidden the real truth from us. Even VC hasn’t awoken to that reality yet. What we know as old religion is not old religion at all. What we know as old religion is a straw man. The real old religion has been suppressed and all but wiped out. All that is left is mostly falsehood with just a few clues here and there of what the old religion was really about. What people like Max More and the makers of this movie oppose is a straw man religion. Don’t you see? The straw man religion has been set up by evil geniuses so that those who follow it are deluded and those who oppose… Read more »

Yep, and it's called The Essene Gospel of Peace.
We'll just be wasting more time before it's finally discovered by the majority.

The Yolandi girl & her boyfriend in the movie are singer/rappers in there own country, there video's a weird to say the least. it's very demonic….blood & all black eyes. they have quite a few videos out. very creepy, becareful there weird tunes from there songs can get stuck in your head

I am from South Africa and I don't know who these clowns are. Thank goodness.
I read an article on VC about them a while back and how they are supposedly against the illuminati but their video's that VC broke down say something else.

This movie has been on television here and I haven't bothered watching it because of the title… Really now?? CHAPPIE??
Chappie is a bubblegum brand in South Africa… totally tasteless chewing gum.

To some people in regions of the Netherlands that name means a nerdy schoolteachertype with issues and a lack of authority.

I'll remember not to listen to their music

transhumanism is happening right now if you ask me it was happening from at least a few years ago.There was a ted talk last month about genetic engineering and it is completely possible now as soon as any gene for any trait is recognized like the gene for the hair color is recognized you can manipulate an embryo and make their hair whatever color you like.It is not necessarily with robots only.Robots haven’t reached the ideal AI now.but genetic engineering is progressing fast and it will soon be possible to make an embryo high IQ,great body and muscle structure and etc you name it.Perhaps the sci-fi movies’ super soldiers are becoming true…

Do not exclude the wish some people advertise to connect electronic devices to a body… That already is happening. It is not just about selfsufficient robots, it is about getting the next generation of us humans to open up for downloading their brain on a cloudserver maybe?

Great Article! Probably you should also go over this one. Interesting concepts too! https://answersingenesis.org/bible-timeline/genea

Lets be honest here.
WE are far away from being some perfect beings, and i mean far away.

And you say it yourself religions PROMISED immortality.
The problem here is that they as always corrupted our desire for self improvement.

Humans need to self-improve one way or the other.

Religions lie. There is only one that has the Truth and that is belief in Jesus Christ – that He came to save us from the mistakes of Adam and Eve – to save a fallen world. Mummification and just being a good person will not get anyone real immortality. There is no mothership to wait for or robot body to save us from conscious death. In fact, death in a fallen world is a great mercy for us. Antediluvian people were permitted to live hundreds of years. Imagine being around for almost a thousand years like Methuselah? I'd have welcomed death way before 300! You know that's why there is no missing link, right? There are no Lucy's, because what scientists have really found are the remains of really old people. The brow bone of the human skull keeps growing as we age. I'd reckon someone over 900-years-old would… Read more »

That's interesting, I've never heard that theory about Lucy and the "hominids" before. I always thought they were extinct apes, or maybe their skulls were shaped that way because people's genes were a lot different than ours long ago.

It is interesting how Max More wrote how Lucifer resigned from heaven. The Bible clearly tells us that Satan fell (due to being pushed) from heaven. God cast Satan out of heaven due to pride. I do not think God gave him a choice to resign. Satan wanted to be God. He wanted to overthrow the most powerful Ruler to exist this very day- God.

@EveryKneeWillBow. It's just more lies from the devil.

Also, it makes no sense that he would "resign" from heaven, everything else beyond heaven belongs to God, so where would Satan have gone exactly? These people claim that Christian's can't claim that the Bible can be based on truth, but what about these other people ? They don't have any facts or any information to back up their claims

Oh well its simple. There are other legitimate books from the biblical era that were not a part of the Bible. Like the Book of Adam and Eve and others on sacred texts . com Lucifer was actually a creature made from Smokeless Fire (Light). Exactly as the jinn are in the Quran. Lucifer (Iblis) was a part of a race with free will that seemed quite obviously at the pinnacle of His creation. But when God created this creature of Clay, and told all His creature to bow down in the sight of Man, Satan got very upset. He was the most beautiful of Gods creations up to that point, but Man was created in the likeness of God Himself. Thats why he rebelled, but he never truly expects to over throw God, Just prove that Adam would never live up to His expectaions (and he didn't). So you… Read more »

You're a confused person. No one believes the Bible was "written by God" but many believe it is the inspired Word of God. On the other hand, you seem to have no problem educating all of us on what other non-inspired texts say, that were written entirely by men, and passing it off as [i]the actual truth[/i].

LOL!!! you hit that nail on the head!! I MEAN SERIOUSLY right??? everything beyond the heavens belongs to GOD. as if someone would just say "I would like to resign from living in your mansion and go live in your pool house because I don't like you." that doesn't even make sense. so much for their enlightment.

LOL. that's hilarious!
"I would like to resign from living in your mansion and go live in your pool house because I don't like you."
thank you for that visual. its like a teen that wants to move out so his dads kinda like, you can have the garage. haha but I like yours better lol

so while die antwood have "spoken out" against mainstream culture, illuminati, etc, it seems they are actually owned and controlled by it if they starred in this movie.

they are controlled by the same satanic music industry.

when did they speak out against illuminati?

er, my bad, perhaps not the illuminati exactly – but surely the music industry (which we know is run by the elite) – http://vigilantcitizen.com/musicbusiness/is-die-a
