Default Upside down man imagery

I have seen this imagery often in TV and movies, though it doesn't have to be a man. One of the tarot cards is the upside down man or hanged man, who dangles upside down from a tree (the 'world tree') by one leg, while the other leg hangs loose and is bent at an angle. This image is based on an upside down crucifixion (Saint Peter is often shown this way). The symbolism of being upside down could refer to the inverted pentagram or to the bizarre 'inner becomes the outer' nature of the Great Work.

LAUREL AND HARDY – In "County Hospital", Olly hangs upside down by one leg while his other leg dangles loose.

I'll be slowly adding more examples in my website in the symbolism section (human body subsection). See https://thegreatworkdecoded.com

Do you really believe Laurel and Hardy set out to do anything other than make people laugh in that sketch?

Regardless of what spin you want to project upon it, The Hanged Man is actually one of the best archetypes to denote truth-seekers, i.e. by 'truth-seekers', this doesn't mean people who decide an image is Illuminati even before exploring other possibilities.

Among many connotations, The Hanged Man is a symbol of the idea that a person's vision of the world literally does a 180 degree shift, and other people may view them as seeing the world upside down, mad in some cases.

The serenity the man has even though he has only one foot on the branch: The branch could be symbolic of truth, and the man's demeanour expresses the greater inner peace he has.

I think you want to paint any symbol in a negative light, and your approach is extremely myopic.

There is an old tradition of hanging Xmas trees upside down from the ceiling.

HAT TRICK PRODUCTIONS - British TV production company (mostly comedy), whose logo is a white rabbit (Alice In Wonderland?) pulling a man from a hat by one leg, thus there are 2 inversions: the upside down man and the role reversal. Usually it's the rabbit that's pulled from the hat by a magician. see image:
HatTrickProd.jpg

THE SIMPSONS – see the Simpsons section in my website for numerous examples, but here is one of them. "The Two Mrs. Nahasapeemapetilons" - an elephant holds Homer upside down by one leg.

"Astro Boy" (2009) - Astro boy is held upside down by one leg.

"The Wrong Trousers" (1993) - while hanging upside down from the ceiling, one of Wallace's feet leaves the ceiling, leaving one his legs dangling.

"The Dark Knight" (2008) - The Joker is held upside down by one leg by a rope/wire(?).

"The Simpsons"

Series 9

Episode 13 - "The Joy Of Sect" - a cult member hangs upside down by one leg.

Series 19

Episode 2 - "Homer Of Seville" - a mother gives birth to a baby who is held upside down by one leg.

Series 23

Episode 10 - "Politically Inept, With Homer Simpson" - Martin Prince is held upside down by one leg by a tree rope.

Episode 13 - "The Daughter Also Rises" - Milhouse is held by one leg by Groundskeeper Willy.

Episode 22 - "Lisa Goes Gaga" - Lisa is held by both legs (not just one) by Homer who wants to do it 17 times.

In Darkman, the protagonist is burned and disfigured. A hospital operation cuts his nerves so he no longer feels physical pain. The Great Work is an attempt to cut out pain.

"South Park"
Series 14, episode 11 "Coon 2" - A monster from another dimension holds a man upside down by his leg.

The famous 'falling man' jumper of 9/11 is a deliberate planting of occult symbolism in the ritual.

This looks a much more plausible use of the symbol, though could you explain what you think it means in the context of 9/11?

Esoteric symbolism is not something I know a lot about, others here can perhaps shed more light on this, but I cobbled together a few points which may connect this card to the falling man as a deliberately placed symbol on 9/11.

The tree in the Hanging Man card is the shape of a T, which is representative of the letter Tau, which stands for the completion of the great work. What is the great work of the Illuminati? The subjugation and complete domination of all souls?

Quote:
In „The Book of Thoth“, Aleister Crowley connects this Major Arcana with the Hebrew letter Mem and with the element of Water:

„It would perhaps be better to say that it represents the spiritual function of water in the economy of initiation; it is a baptism which is also a death“.

And here are his supplementary explanations:

„In the Aeon of Osiris, this card represented the supreme formula of adeptship; for the figure of the drowned or hanged man has its own special meaning. The legs are crossed so that the right leg forms a right angle with the left leg, and the arms are stretched out at an angle of 60° so as to form an equilateral triangle; this gives the symbol of the Triangle surmounted by the Cross, which represents the descent of the light into the darkness in order to re deem it.

http://tarot-astrology.co.uk/2015/10...ley-and-papus/
So Crowley connects the card with a "baptism which is also a death". This fits the 9/11 ritual like a glove. The symbolic and literal death of the useless eaters and the birth of the NWO?

It also represents "the descent of the light into the darkness in order to redeem it." This mirrors the Masonic maxim Ordo Ab Chao, (Order out of Chaos) and in the 9/11 context fits perfectly.

Quote:
Papus thinks that „This Hanged Man serves for an example to the presumptuous, and his position indicates discipline, the absolute submission which the human owes to the Divine.

http://tarot-astrology.co.uk/2015/10...ley-and-papus/
Again here, absolute submission which the human owes the divine is another possible reading for this symbol in a 9/11 context. Is this referencing the absolute submission the human (useless eaters) owes the divine (our illuminated masters)? Is it a little reminder that they are the gods (so they believe), the divine bloodline beings rightly in control of this world?

The Hanging Man's legs cross to form the number 4..

Quote:
The number Four (4) represents structure and is the basis of foundation, solidity of form and function and endurance or permanence. Four indicates change (as in the four seasons), versatility (as in the four elements) and a nice solid equi-sided base upon which to build from those changes a versatile nature of enduring qualities. This is the energy that can endure as pressure is put upon it internally and externally.

https://themagickalpen.com/2014/07/1...ng-of-numbers/
In this context the 4 could be both an ironic poke at the "foundation, solidity of form and function and endurance or permanence" of what we perceive to be solid reality (the towers) as well as referencing their great work which they are building using a "nice solid equi-sided base upon which to build from those changes a versatile nature of enduring qualities"

Cheers for that. Whatever the meaning intended, anyone familiar with the major arcana of tarot would have spotted the similarity.

This is all imagination overdrive !!!

It's an obvious comic scene for a laurel and hardy movie to have one with his leg in plaster suspended by weights ...you know what's going to happen ... but his other leg is flying out to the side ... nothing like the tarot card....

If the falling guy on 9/11 had his leg like the tarot card there could be something, but he hasn't and he's not a "hanged man" he's falling

As for all the movies listed in the post above ...ridiculous

Such things will innocently come up in movies....

I could list a hundred movies where someone is hanging from a ledge by one hand ...no hidden meaning in it all...

You will drive yourself crazy looking for this stuff!

If any tarot symbol denotes what 9/11 and its aftermath represented to a tee, strangely enough, it's 'The Tower'.

Everything else, movies etc - couldn't agree more.

On the bright side, if the satirical comic Viz is planning to revamp the Grassy Knollington character (he sees a global conspiracy in everything from a tin of corned beef to buying a a Wall's ice cream), this thread is definitely the go-to resource. Some real candidates here, material wise.

The "Recycle More" logo is an upside down person with one leg askew. The Great Work is a kind of recycling: karma/energy is reused. See logo here: https://www.bing.com/images/search?q...F3&FORM=IQFRBA

The movie's co-writers included BOB BAKER who co-wrote other WALLACE AND GROMIT movies and who co-wrote "Dr Who" scripts and co-wrote the paranormal Children's TV series "Sky" about a time travelling psychic alien. Baker also co-wrote the fantasy Children's TV series "Into The Labyrinth", about 2 feuding, timeless, sorcerers.

"The Simpsons" Series 28,Episode 14 "Fatzcarraldo" - Milhouse hung upside down by one leg by a rope.

Not really. In the tarot card the figure is suspended by one foot and is not shown in profile, as this falling person clearly is. Perhaps the hanged man could be more compared to Odin hanging from Yggdrassil to learn wisdom rather than somebody falling to their death.

I guess people are just desperate to attach false meanings to things.
