Mjawakening – 12.15.09 Clue 3 – Four Feathers/Heath Ledger

Keyword: P-R-O-P-O-F-O-L

Four Feathers tagline: Freedom. Country. Honor. Passion. To save his best friend, one man must risk everything he loves.

Plot Summary: Set in 1884 Sudan, this fifth film to be adapted from the A.E.W. Mason novel follows a British officer who resigns his post right before his regiment ships out to battle the rebels. Perceiving his resignation as cowardice, his friends and fiancée give him four white feathers, the symbol of cowardice, but little do they know he’s actually going undercover and plans to redeem his honor.

WHAT WAS THAT AGAIN???  Three main things there….

Freedom. Country. Honor. Passion.

One man must risk everything he loves.

But little do they know he’s actually going undercover and plans to redeem his honor.

Oh yeah oh yeah do the dance do the dance

So where does Propofol come in?

Here’s my guess….   Thriller… MJ turning into a Zombie and then back again

Dead Man Walking – Clairvius Narcisse was a Haitian man said to have been turned into a living zombie with the use of a combination of drugs

The facts of the case of Clairvius Narcisse are as follows: on the 30th of April, 1962, at 9:45 PM, he checked himself into the Albert Schweitzer Hospital in the town of Deschapelle in the Artibonite Valley of Haiti. Narcisse had been sick for some time, complaining of fever, body aches, and general malaise, but just recently he had begun coughing up blood. His condition deteriorated rapidly. Attending physicians noted that Narcisse suffered from digestive disorders, pulmonary edema, hypothermia, respiratory difficulties, and hypotension. His sister Angelina would later recall that his lips turned blue, or cyanotic, and that he reported tingling sensations, or paraethesias, all over his body.

On the morning of May 2 his two attending physicians, one of whom was American and the other American -trained, pronounced Clairvius Narcisse dead. His body was identified by his oldest sister, Marie Claire, who affixed her thumbprint to the death certificate, and he was buried the next day.

Marie Claire or LaToya? Hee hee

Eighteen years later, Angelina Narcisse was walking through the village marketplace when she was approached by someone claiming to be Clairvius Narcisse. The man identified himself by a boyhood nickname which had not been used for years and which was known only to members of the immediate family, and he had a bizarre tale to tell.

He said that shortly before he was pronounced dead, he felt as if his skin was on fire, with insects crawling beneath it. He heard his sister Angelina weeping as he was pronounced dead, felt the sheet being pulled up over his face. Horrifyingly, although he was unable to move or speak, he remained lucid and aware the entire time, even as his coffin was nailed shut and buried. He even had a scar which he claimed was sustained as one of the coffin nails was driven through his face. He felt the sensation of floating above the grave. There he remained, for how long he did not know, until the coffin as opened by the bokor and his henchmen. He was beaten into submission, bound, gagged, and spirited away to a sugar plantation that was to be his home for the next two years.

Point being that there was a drug(s) administered that mimicked death.  Moving along…

These men realized that opening up the grave of Clairvius Narcisse would tell them little. If the man claiming to be Narcisse was a fraud, he (or his coconspirators) could easily have removed the body themselves. On the other hand, if he had truly been a victim of zombification, those responsible could have substituted another body, which by then would be unidentifiable (this was in the days before DNA fingerprinting).

Oh really! What’s that you say? Body substitution? Casket cemented shut? Hmmmm….

So fast forward, the drug used was not propofol but tetrodotoxin. Tetrodotoxin can induce a state of suspended animation almost indistinguishable from death.

Suspended animation….  Suspended animation is the slowing of life processes by external means without termination. Breathing, heartbeat, and other involuntary functions may still occur, but they can only be detected by artificial means. Extreme cold can be used to precipitate the slowing of an individual’s functions; use of this process has led to the developing science of cryonics.

Cryonics is the low-temperature preservation of humans and animals that can no longer be sustained by contemporary medicine until resuscitation may be possible in the future.

Oh yes… remember Mr. Jackson wanted to live forever and was looking into preserving his body.  Hahaha boy we didn’t have a clue what he had up his sleeve!

What is the main drug used in cryonics?

General anesthetics are administered to cryonics patients for two reasons; to eliminate the slim possibility of return of consciousness and to reduce brain metabolism. Currently the agent of choice is propofol.

So who’s to say that MJ didn’t have propofol administered, entered a state of suspended animation, was transported, and a switcheroo was pulled?

  1. Very good! In the thought of cryogenics and suspended animation, Michael was into Walt Disney. When Walt died it was thought he was put into cryogenic chamber to be brought back at a later time… “Suspended animator in animated suspension” Now, what to do you think about that one!

  2. I agree with your thoughts – had same idea on that day

    He has tried so many times before 🙂 –

  3. thumbs up! what makes me laugh is that my very first thought on that fateful day was that he used a drug to induce a death-like state, only to be given the “antidote” and escape.
