In ‘Knowing’, an adult Lucinda Embry is possessed by the messages she had received as a child. In her secluded and abandoned adult home, the image of Ezekial’s chariot encounter is discovered, fitting into the lineage of deterministic fate that has been progressively decoded throughout the film from Lucinda’s childhood codex.
In the movie, a boy and girl (both ‘chosen’ by the extraterrestrials) are taken by aliens appearing “in the likeness of man” on their ship (Chariot) and put on a new planet to start this whole mess over again – my suspicions are with the intent to get it right this time around in the eyes of our God or ‘gods’ and to preserve their own future sustainability.
