Glory Road


Britney Spears` 2016 album release, Glory, containing the single, `Make Me`, alludes to `Old Glory`, which is an alternative name for the `star spangled banner` of the United States of America`s flag with its distinctive `stars and stripes` signifying the number of states in the union: `Just want you to raise my roof.`1 Like the planting of the flag of `Old Glory` on the moon raised the roof, but it`s also a retrospective look back at Britney`s character `Lucky` from her first album release, Oops! ... I Did It Again (1999), which features Britney in the character of a young woman who`s `a star` awarded an Oscar, which is the statuette given to a movie actor when they`re accepted by their peers in the industry as having successfully contributed to the medium of film: `She's so lucky, she's a star.`2 The album, Oops! I Did It Again, is noteworthy for its science fiction video for the single, `Oops! ... I Did It Again` (2000), which features a spaceman who encounters Britney on the `red planet`, Mars, and is reminiscent of the spaceman planting the Music Television (MTV) flag on the moon in emulation of the Apollo 11 astronaut, Neil Armstrong, who planted `Old Glory` on the lunar surface on July 21, 1969 (UTC: 2. 56), to become the first man on the moon. The MTV spaceman is awarded as a statuette at the MTV awards in a ceremony comparable to the Oscar awards for the medium of film, which is why he appears in the Britney `Oops! ... I Did It Again` sci-fi short film, because that helped the video`s nomination for an MTV `spaceman` award.

 In her red pilot`s suit Britney is reminiscent of a science fiction character from Robert A. Heinlein`s (1907-88) juvenile for girls, Podkayne Of Mars (1963) who, known as `the Poddy beautiful`, has ambitions to be a space pilot. The Apollo space program to put a man on the moon replaced the plan to fly a spaceplane to the lunar surface and land it there, which had to be cancelled when the prototype X-15 spaceplane pilots experienced `blackout`, that is, a loss of consciousness due to high altitude air pressure causing the pilot to lose control and for the plane to crash. Britney`s album Blackout (2007) alludes to this and censorship, that is, media `blackout`, which is imposed by propagandists who don`t want the people to know the truth. Consequently, the major single from the Blackout album, `Piece Of Me, focuses on the press: `I'm Mrs. Oh my God that Britney's shameless! You want a piece of me? I'm Mrs. Extra! Extra! This just in. You want a piece of me?`3 The CD cover for the single features Britney on the cross of Jesus crucified, which requires some explanation in terms of the `blackout` theme, because Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary, and had his mother`s brainpower uncontaminated by male semen, that is, he was theoretically a pilot not as limited in terms of withstanding high altitude pressure as the X-15 spaceplane pilots were.

 When Britney in her red suit hoists the spaceman up by means of a hook and pulley in the promotional video for `Oops! ... I Did It Again`, he`s able to look down with his camera eye upon Britney`s `twin` in a white bikini dress below. The significance of Britney`s twin is that human futanarian women can sexually reproduce with the species of women through their own penis` semen, which is why Jesus was taken to the hill of Calvary as a `dissident` Jewish rabbi where he was nailed to a cross of wood and left to die: `The very basis of the Judeo-Christian code is injustice, the scapegoat system. The scapegoat sacrifice runs all through the Old Testament, then it reaches its height in the New Testament with the notion of the Martyred Redeemer. How can justice possibly be served by loading your sins on another?`4 Jesus experienced Resurrection and Ascension to heaven in prefiguration of that of `woman`s seed` destined to colonize the planets amongst the stars of heaven above through her own brains` powers for technological progress. In `Lucky` Britney is similarly surrounded by assistants, who are herselves, before she receives her Oscar, which is the name of Robert Heinlein`s character in the supposedly more adult novel, Glory Road (1963), Oscar Gordon, who answers an `ad` in a newspaper for a hero: `ARE YOU A COWARD? This is not for you. We badly need a brave man. He must be 23 to 25 years old, in perfect health, at least six feet tall, weigh about 190 pounds, fluent English with some French, proficient with all weapons, some knowledge of engineering and mathematics essential, willing to travel, no family or emotional ties, indomitably courageous and handsome of face and figure. Permanent employment, very high pay, glorious adventure, great danger. You must apply in person...`5 Gordon applies and meets `Star`, `Empress of the Twenty Universes`, who whisks him away on a quest for the `Phoenix Egg`, which turns out to be the collected knowledge of the Empress` predecessors: `As Star says, the world is what it is - and doesn’t forgive ignorance.`6 Although the `Egg` is ready to be received by `Her Wisdom` telepathically, it`s symbolic of the need for humans to have that permanent memory which is promised to the species through the sexual reproduction of the brainpower needed to develop medical science`s capacity to confer immortality, that is, God`s Redemption: `Oscar, so far as I know, your culture is the only semicivilized one in which love is not recognized as the highest art and given the serious study it deserves.`7 Because Britney`s spaceman on Mars is called `Mars lander` by `Mission Control`, and an actual North American Space Administration (NASA) Martian probe was the `Phoenix`, which landed on Mars on May 25, 2008, Britney on Mars is an avatar of `Star`. Her identity is further alluded to in the promotional video for `Lucky`, because she receives her Oscar along the `red carpet`, which is symbolic of the `glory road` attributed to the film star, and represented by the Oscar ceremony: `I'm Roger Johnson for Pop News standing outside the arena waiting for Lucky.`



 Britney`s appearance on the `red carpet` is after the tradition of Heinlein novels in which there`s a party at the end. In the last chapter of The Number Of The Beast (1980), L` Envoi, at which party guests have secret hidden names with revelatory meanings when deciphered, `Snob` appears on the `red carpet` of a gathering of the `Interuniversal Society` and gives his card, `Anything Unlimited`, representing `Tome, Hernia, Lien, & Snob`,8 which is an anagram of Mr Robert Anson Heinlein. Alluding to Heinlein`s Glory Road plot, Roger Johnson is `rod, judge John`s son`, because although Revelation is often attributed to Jesus` disciple, John, it`s certain only that John was a `Christian prophet`, that is, he was a Johnson. According to Revelation, Jesus will `rule the nations with a rod of iron`, that is, his teaching of `woman`s seed` will rule over men`s parasitoid nature. Consequently, Britney`s character, Lucky, in receipt of her Oscar at the awards` ceremony is Heinlein`s Star, Empress of the Twenty Universes, whose avatar assistants, preparing her make-up, and costume for the Oscar ceremony, represent `woman`s seed`, who`ll be gratefully ruled by Jesus` sceptre, because finally they`ll be able to sexually reproduce human brainpower from futanarian women`s semen and colonize the planets amongst the stars of heaven, which Heinlein`s Star, Empress of the Twenty Universes, represents:


 `Oscar, when you get home, don’t expect too much of your feminine compatriots. You’re sure to be disappointed and the poor dears aren’t to blame. American women, having been conditioned out of their sex instincts, compensate by compulsive interest in rituals over the dead husk of sex ... and each one is sure she knows ‘intuitively’ the right ritual for conjuring the corpse. She knows and nobody can tell her any different ... especially a man unlucky enough to be in bed with her. So don’t try. You will either make her furious or crush her spirit. You’ll be attacking that most Sacred of Cows: the myth that women know all about sex, just from being women.`9



 In Heinlein`s novel, Job: A Comedy Of Justice (1984), gods are `artists` and Heinlein`s central character, Alex Hergensheimer, together with his friend, Margaret, whose name means `pearl`, that is, `pearl of great price` (Matt: 13. 45-6), and which is a euphemism for `heaven` in the Bible, experience `world changes` that they attribute to the gods, who`re amongst a pantheon that include Jehovah and Satan: `Anyone who can worship a trinity and insist that his religion is a monotheism can believe anything. Just give him time to rationalize it. Forgive me for being blunt.`10 Those are Lucifer`s words to Alex in his guise of `Jerry Farnsworth`, while Britney`s Roger Johnson in `Lucky` has a name, which means John`s son, that is, `rod` judge Johnson (Roger Johnson) represents Jesus` rule in which God`s punishment for the evil is the eternal unendurable pain of perdition, while the reward for the good is a new heaven and a new Earth: `Oh my God. Here she comes!`



 The lyrics to Britney Spears` `Piece Of Me` begin: `I'm Miss American Dream since I was seventeen. Don't matter if I step on the scene or sneak away to the Philippines. They still gon' put pictures of my derriere in the magazine. You want a piece of me?` Britney Spears represents the Holy Spirit, which Jesus said would teach after him, through all those who accepted her, that is, like Heinlein`s Star, she`s a `piece of ass` from whom it`s possible to learn wisdom: `She believed that a woman’s costume was a failure unless it made men want to tear it off.`11 Christianity associates the star of Bethlehem with Jesus` birth, and the Holy Spirit with masculinity, but the symbolism points to feminine continuity as the theme of the quest. Heinlein`s Star in Glory Road, for example: `... tomorrow we are heading up that Glory Road, rocks and all!`12 Not in pursuit of the woman as an animal hunted, but in the belief that `woman`s seed` will prevail, and her womb, redeemed from slavery to its hosting of a parasitoid devourer, will some day in the far flung future bear the `fruit of the tree of life`, which is God`s promised immortality.

 On the cover of the `Piece Of Me` CD, Britney is in the place of Jesus crucified, and upon his death, the Roman guard, Longinus, pierced his side with his spear: `Surely, this was the son of God.` (Matt: 27. 54) The `American Dream` is a part of the USA`s belief in `Manifest Destiny`, which relates to the spear of Longinus that was known as the `spear of Destiny`. Britney Spears is an American symbol of the Holy Spirit`s polyvalence, which in Eden was depicted in Eve`s emergence from the side of Adam. The Romans believed that, because Jesus was the `Second Adam`, the `Second Eve` would emerge from his side as the Holy Spirit he preached of. Longinus` cutting open Jesus` side with his spear was what modern surgeons call `caesarian section`, which was named for the apocryphal birth of the Roman Emperor, Julius Caesar. As it`s traditional for the Romans to make their Emperor a god, so Longinus` cutting open of Jesus` side with his spear was a `caesarian section` birthing a goddess, rather than a god, that is, for pop music lovers interested in the unfolding of the meaning of her life in the lyrics and promotional video material, Britney Spears is the `Second Eve`.

 The `American Dream` is of heaven, but that`s dependent on the Resurrection and Ascension of `woman`s seed`, that is, women`s penis` semen`s producing of human brainpower to crush the head of the slavers in parasitism upon the host womb of the human futanarian species of `woman`s seed`. Britney can`t be shown on the cross of Jesus naked, as a human futanarian woman, for the cover of the `Piece Of Me` CD, because the alien parasitoid devourer`s propaganda promotes `blackout`, that is, censorship of edutainment for adults that could conceivably result in their developing intelligent objections to being bred to be killed as entertainment for the evil. Consequently, Britney crucified is a picture of a dying race, because the parasitoid killer`s spirit is the polyvalence of the Empire of the maled brain. Britney is a daughter of God, rather than a son, which Jesus always denied. He was the `son of man`, because he was the child of his mother, the Virgin Mary, and God, who isn`t human, whereas Mary is, that is, for Jesus, `woman`s seed` was man`s, which is why he had Resurrection and Ascension to heaven, because he rejected host womb parasitism and slavery to the parasitoid devourer, Satan, for the polyvalence of the feminine spirit and a destiny for humanity amongst the planets and stars of at least twenty universes.
