As we discussed in the post Decoding Movies (Maxims and Aphorisms): 7 Lessons J.K.Rowling taught us about life, there is a breathtaking amount of Life Lessons hidden in Films, TV and Media. Why would our would-be masters hide so much in plain sight? Because it is part of Universal Law and a way to desensitize us to such empowering information. See the above link for a detailed explanation.
Game of Thrones is FILLED with many layers of hidden truth and Allegory, the key to decoding it is building a contextual framework of the show's story and character traits in your mind, and then make a comparison of this understanding to another story. This can be repeated with different stories and perspectives to yield many meanings for you, the person who is taking up the work of exploring Allegory.
The post DNA and Gold (Key to Immortality?) If Human Energy Backs All Currency, Why Are They Hoarding Gold? contains a video presentation by Dan Winter, wherein he describes why Gold is so important in our history, and who the major players were in our Galactic History. When you compare this story against the story described in the Game of Thrones, there are a staggering number of correlations, and you can easily see that it is a "retelling" of the history of man kind and beyond.
Despite being a fantasy show, ‘Game of Thrones’ provides a strikingly realistic portrayal of humanity and human nature. All characters on the show, even those reputed for their goodness and honor, are imperfect beings.
They all have flaws and weaknesses and all have made some crucial mistakes.
Yet it isn’t in humanity’s nature to be purely evil.
“It’s tempting to see your enemies as evil, all of them, but there’s good and evil on both sides in every war ever fought.” –Jorah Mormont (Season 4, Episode 7).
