Ebenezer Scrooge was an Explorer.
A Christmas Carol has always been one of my favorite Christmas stories. (George C. Scott if the movie version). I was thinking about this movie today and thought, wow, a lot of this makes sense when viewed from the MBT perspective.
First, Scrooge exemplifies a high entropy being consumed by fear and ego. He is obsessed with his money and shows no concern or love for his fellow beings. Jacob Marley was the same before death and is now stuck in the loop of his own greedy and uncaring thoughts, doomed to walk the earth forever (he thinks). Personally, I think he will be popped out of that loop sooner or later.
Scrooge then encounters the Guide of Christmas Past. He views the actualized past database in the TBC to see his past history thread that led him to where he is today.
The guide of Christmas present shifts his data stream to that of the present but in an "out of body state (?)" where he sees people in his life now and understands how they really think of him.
The guide of Christmas future then takes him on the wildest ride. He shows him the unactualized future database and where his present free will choices guided by his current intent will take him and others. This has a profound effect on Scrooge, causing him to see the error of his ways and thereby lowering the entropy of his being. He then embodies that high quality of consciousness and becomes love-like.
AUM bless us, every one.
