Jerry Wasn`t A Man
Jerry Wasn`t A Man
Science fiction writer, Robert A. Heinlein (1907-88), wrote a short story, `Jerry Was A Man` (1947), because the tale concerned a `simp`, that is, a `superchimp` amongst many others created by a future society, with an enhanced brain to perform menial tasks that the people of the future didn`t want to perform themselves, and the title derives from the eventual verdict of a court of law that Jerry was a man, because he was demonstrably so. The theme was later developed by Pierre Boulle, science fiction author of the novel, Planet Of The Apes (1963), which was made into a Hollywood film, Planet Of The Apes (1968), starring actor, Charlton Heston, as astronaut George Taylor, and his crew, whose ship left Earth in 1972, and who`d been in cryogenic sleep, so age only 18 months, and arrive at a future Earth on November 25, 3978, although they believe it to be an unknown world. There they discover that the dominant life form are now chimpanzees, because humans were docile through advanced technology they no longer control, although the apes do have sufficient control of technology to now control the humans as their slaves, and Taylor, `Bright Eyes` to his captors, becomes a slave: `Take your stinking paws off me, you damn dirty ape!`1
In Boulle`s 1963 novel, Planet Of The Apes, an ancient human city is excavated, and an unconscious human lab subject, whose brain has been stimulated by electrodes, recites from racial memory the events that led to the fall of human civilization. Humans tamed apes, and eventually used them as servants, but apes started looking humans straight in the eye, and after that they developed speech. In the 1968 film version, the remnants of the technologically advanced human society are also found to pre-date simian history: `… your breed made a desert of it … ages ago!` The apes set explosives to destroy the evidence of the human society, which is revealed to be that of ancient Earth, when Taylor finds the statue of Liberty`s torch, while walking along a deserted stretch of sand. In Boulle`s novel a cerebral laziness is depicted as taking hold of humans, and apes take over their homes. According to the subject`s racial memory, docile humans tried to live in camps, until only a single camp remained, which was attacked by apes carrying slavers` whips.
On August 18, 2007, the United States of America`s ABC network broadcast a television version of `Jerry Was A Man`, as a part of its science fiction anthology series, Masters of Science Fiction, in which `anthropoid workers`, nicknamed `Joes`, were made into dogfood at the close of their useful working lives. Euphemistically, a `Joe` is someone thought of as being a joke, because of their personality, and the joke would be that Jerry represents `demons trouble`, that is, it`s demons` trouble that he`s a man. Or, in other words, it has to be demonstrable to men that a man is a man, because they`re demon slavers. In simpler terms, Jerry is the ape that is turned into a slave by simian slavers, which is the joke. That`s what men are. The slavers are simians, who artificially enhance a chimpanzee, so that he is demonstrable, that is, demons` trouble is what it means to be made an example of by men, who`re demons. Jesus `Christ`, `the chosen`, was taken to the hill of Calvary, outside the city of Jerusalem in Palestine, then occupied by the soldiers of the Roman Empire, where he was nailed to a cross of wood, as an example of what demons do, because Jesus was a `dissident` who preached: `Love your neighbor as you love yourself.` (Mk: 12. 31) He was demons` trouble, that is, trouble to the demons, who therefore made an example of him.
Jesus had met a man near the town of Gadarene, who said: `My name is legion.` Legion was the demon possessing him and, far from coincidentally, was also the name by which the army of Rome, then occupying Jewish Palestine, was called. Jesus told the demons to leave the man, and they asked to go into a herd of pigs, which promptly ran off a cliff and drowned. Legion was demons` trouble. Jesus was able to demonstrate that those who seek to make an example of a man aren`t men, but demons, or possessed by demons, and who`re demons` trouble as demons. Born from his mother, the Virgin Mary, uncontaminated by simian semen, Jesus experienced Resurrection and Ascension to heaven in prefiguration of that of `woman`s seed`, which is futanarian women`s, with their own penis` semen for the sexual reproduction of their own brains` powers; to escape slavery through technological advancement.
The Old Testament of the Bible, which is the history and law of the Jews, that is, the Torah and Talmud, gives some clues as to what possession by demons is. God tells Eve, the first woman: `You shall crush the head of the serpent with your foot, but he will bruise your heel.` (Gen: 3. 15) In Christianity, which is the religion deriving from the New Testament of the Bible, based on Jesus` teaching, Jesus` mother, the Virgin Mary, is depicted crushing the head of the serpent with her foot, because Jesus represents Resurrection and Ascension to heaven in prefiguration of that of `woman`s seed` after the defeat of the `serpent`s seed`, which is demonically possessive. The serpent in the Bible is Satan, the angel expelled from heaven by the creator, God, for rejecting God`s plan that the human host be greater than the angelic, and turned into a serpent by God, which God then placed in the paradise of heaven on Earth that was Eden, and where Eve, the first woman, and Adam, the first man, had been placed after being created by God too.
Eve emerged from the side, or `rib` of Adam, a euphemism for futanarian self-fertilization and birth, that is, Adam was a futanarian woman with `woman`s seed`. Satan represented earlier saurian evolution in the Mesozoic period 248 m.a., which preceded hominid evolution in the Jurassic period 220 m.a., which the `serpent`s seed` of the saurians wanted to enslave through host womb parasitism. Consequently, Satan`s temptation of Eve to `eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil`, that is, death, was an aspect of the saurians attempt to enslave the human futanarian species of `woman`s seed` for the power to wage war upon her Earth: `You shall be as gods.` (Gen: 3. 5) In parasitology, the parasite that emerges to kill the host is `parasitoid`, which is demons` trouble. Because that`s what men do, they`re possessed by saurian consciousness; as Jesus` disciple wrote in his prophetic Revelation about the future that would occur if the `serpent`s seed` of Eden was allowed to grow in size to be a devouring dragon: `The dragon was wroth with the woman and went to make war on the remnant of her seed.` (Rev: 17. 5)
It`s demons` trouble that Jerry is a man, because he has to defer to their judgment, whereas God explains quite clearly in the Bible that the good will have heaven on Earth, and a new heaven after Judgment Day, whereas the evil will experience eternal unendurable pain, which is perdition, that is, it`s irrelevant whether Jerry is a man or not; he has to be good. Obviously, giving Jerry advanced intelligence, and turning him into a slave, isn`t good for Jerry, which is demons` trouble. Although it`s plan that Jerry is a good worker, and therefore he`s a man as defined by God`s law. However, in the ABC TV version, Jerry is an explosive ordnance disposal technician or `minesweeper`. As in the Heinlein short, Jerry demonstrates his humanity to the court by singing, `Old Folks At Home` (1851), which was sung by negro slaves, taken from their homes in Africa to work on the cotton plantations of the Southern slaving states of the US, before the Civil war (1861-5) of manumission: `Way down upon de Swanee ribber …` In spite of the sentimental power of the anti-slavery theme, Jerry`s lawyer argues that his most human characteristic is his sense of self-preservation, which is demons` trouble as video footage of Jerry cutting himself away from where a mine is, so a fellow minesweeper gets blown up instead, which may be pragmatic, but it isn`t human.
Of course, science fiction, or any work of fiction that purports to be human, isn`t. Because the mainstay of fiction is war, by the parasitoid alien nature of the saurian demoniacal consciousness, against `woman`s seed`, and which somehow millennia ago inveigled itself into the human futanarian host womb of the species to steal its penis, and semen, to replicate itself as the race`s devourer, Jerry`s act of self-preservation is demons` trouble symptoms of race hatred for humanity. Some critics argued that Jerry was Robert Heinlein`s black African, and that he was arguing that black people were inferior, because it was demonstrable that a negro was a simian. However, such arguments are representative of demons` trouble, that is, of saurian parasitoid consciousness possessing the human, because it`s clearly Heinlein`s view that slavers are inferior and simian, because they don`t want `woman`s seed` to sexually reproduce man in heaven above, whereas that`s what Jesus said would occur after women`s Resurrection: `At the resurrection people will neither marry nor be given in marriage; they will be like the angels in heaven.` (Matt: 22. 30) The race of women are single and independent, rather than ring slaves in ownership for the production of simian workers, which is why Jerry wasn`t a man to men, because he was demons` trouble, that is, until they could explain him as one of them. The ABC TV version, where Jerry facilitates another`s death in his stead, was an attempt to present him as a demon to men, who are his demons, because `Jerry Was A Man` was demons` trouble until he was explained as a-being like they were.
