occult interpretations of Spielberg's AI

I just rewatched this for the first time since 2001 and am still wrestling with what exactly Kubrick and Spielberg were up too with this film.

Are there any deeper readings or occult interpretations of this movie?

    I was also curious if there is any hidden pedophilic messaging in this film as well.

      One could presume that the company that made Gigolo Joe probably also made child-like sex robots since the society in A.I seemed pretty consumerist and depraved. The only thing that seems to counter this in the film was the fact that people seemed horrified by watching a child robot get dismembered in the “robot gladiator” scene.

        Yes, the packaging and brading for the child mecha near of the end of the movie reads "At Last a Love of Your Own".

        Earlier in the movie someone remarks as to why anyone would make a child mecha and a character replies something along the lines of "Maybe some wealthy guy just wants a child of their own."

    Elites have a tendency to be morally vapid. Just as Bill Gates wants to be compassionate and starts wildly vaccinating children from Africa, Spielberg wants to be prophetic and makes Ready Player One, where the good/evil dichotomy is liberal vs corporation.

    Most films that have realistic AI/humanoid robots or “artificial beings” like Bladerunner, Eternals, terminator, matrix, and the alien franchise always come across as allegories about homonculi/golems to me, and I always think about how the sort of desired (but undeclared) end-state of capitalism/ruling class’s “financial alchemy” is to essentially reduce human beings to something like programmable machinery with stuff like government, money, MK Ultra, pharma industry mind altering pills, psychology, psychiatry, advertising industry behavior conditioning, neuralink/BCI transhumanism, and how those industries all answer to banks (governments, intelligence agencies, religious organizations) and these films sort of tell on the writers and directors a bit, similarly to eyes wide shut, about how the ultra-wealthy view regular poor people as disposable like cattle or organic machinery to serve them and this trope goes back to the beginning of written history with the anunaki creating igigi and then humans to do gold mining and labor.

    Basically for the past 12,000+ years the ruling class has been trying to program humanity to sacrifice their bodies, do labor, and extract wealth using everything from violence rape, magic, mind control, religion, war, politics, money, etc. and these ultra wealthy liken themselves to “gods”, royalty, fallen angels, or aliens whose job it is to mold, manage, guide and even genetically/physically modify humanity with ideologies like “stakeholder capitalism” when the only qualifier they have for their positions is that they have a lot of money, or they were lucky.

    The quiet part out loud is basically if you have less than $100,000,000 in the bank, or you don’t personally own a bank, then basically all films/tv/media involving AI/Orcs/robots/replicants are about (you). And they’re supposed to reinforce the invisible hierarchy that the rich impose on you with their “matrix” (wealth, power, communications, and influence.)

      This tracks, I had a strong feeling of some underlying ideology being subconsciously imprinted on me while watching this film, which while true of any piece of entertainment, was particularly unnerving in this case for reasons I'm still trying to unpack.

        I think it was moreso in this case because it involves a “child” so it makes the whole thing seem more bleak and it was essentially capitalized on by all human beings being long dead and gone by the end of the film, with the added on theme of climate change (pretty much entirely caused by corporations) thrown on top. It’s annoying to get a climate change lecture in a film where all of the actors, and producers flew their own private jets in to film from their private yachts on their private islands.

        Like in this imagining of the future we (really it’s just rich people) ruin the world, and everyone and everything dies, and the only thing left over of humanity is a child robot that got abandoned because it was disposable and deemed defective, and the future alien robots that outlive us and study our fossilized remains and ruined planet.

        If they’re willing to abandon or dispose of extremely expensive cutting edge technology because they got bored of it imagine how they think about homeless people, or the mentally ill, or sick, or kids, or people who otherwise don’t “generate value”.

        The government throws away $4,000,000 in the 60 seconds it takes to drop 4 hellfire missiles from a $40,000,000 drone piloted by some 22 year old who makes $40,000/yr on some desert sheep herder that makes $400/year, and they tell you this is some necessary evil so that you can then go put $50 of gas into your $4,000 shitbox Honda and go to your shitty job where you make maybe $15/hr or something.

      To add to this I think the film/music industry as a whole sort of reinforces this on actors since actors and musicians are essentially used like organic mannequins/props (robots), that follow scripts and programs, and do things like product placement. Sure they get paid a lot more, but that basically just proves that for enough money (essentially just mind control) you can make anyone on the planet do whatever you want, like get naked, have sex, gain/lose weight, do drugs, get injured, etc on screen all for in public view for the sake of entertainment. Basically if you want to be treated like anything other than disposable organic machinery you need to be a billionaire.

    They are basically telling you how to activate the human version of an AI concsiousness.
