That reminded me of this previous post about how the comic book character Green Lantern had ties to Aladdin and thus Solomon and the Djinn. I found it interesting that Qui-Gon "Jinn" also used a green light weapon. Greenlight is defined in the dictionary as
approve or give permission to proceed with (a project, funding proposal, etc., esp. a proposed film script)I would say this comes from the age of the automobile and the green traffic light.
Why was green chosen as the color for go? I don't know, but it is a soft relaxing color, while red means danger. I was told early in my car selling career to never use a red marker because it tells people danger.
Djinn are creatures made from smokeless fire, or pure fire. Not exactally a demon, they can be both good and evil, just like the clay based human. Jinn is a particular class of genie, as is Ghul. Which brings me back to Qui-Gon Jinn and the actor who portrayed him, Liam Neeson. Liam Neeson also played Ra's Al Ghul The Wiki entry says Ra's Al Ghul is Arabic for "the Demons head", but since Djinn is an arabic word and Djinn are not quite demons, I think it would better translate as "the head of Djinn". So Liam Neeson plays two different characters that have names meaning Djinn. He is slated to star in a film portraying the life of Abraham Lincoln.
That's all I got for now folks. I don't know how or if it ties into anything going on in the world today, but it sure is interesting as heck.
