Arrow What Would The Na'vi Think Of...

Thread idea that just popped into my head. How about we discuss what the Na'vi would think of other characters/people outside the Avatar universe.

Let's start with...Tyler Durden. What do you guys think the Na'vi would think of him? I'm sure they would approve of what he wants for the world (the "In the world I see..." dialogue), and his resistance to the same system that had destroyed the Sky People's homeworld/invaded their own. Though I think they would probably have their reservations about his tactics/Project Mayhem, and I definitely think they would disapprove of Fight Club. I don't think they would understand the appeal of people beating the crap out of each other just for ****s and giggles.

But what about you guys? How do you think the Na'vi would react to him? Or other characters in other universes?

Not sure. I feel like the general mood among the Na'vi was reserved, quiet, and peaceful. They seemed to put a lot of focus on character which would extend out to obviously a deep and interconnected environment. For example, if the Na'vi were displaced from Pandora, and into another area, their values would remain - every action produces a reaction (or the flow of energy), power through unity and so on. So with a fight club, I can't say if they would approve.

But on the other hand, the Na'vi live a very natural life. They aren't suppressed by many of the stresses that come with such an artificial society. If they were, sure, I could see them in a fight club. I think of the Na'vi as nothing more than what humans are capable of, so, I would expect them to react just how many of us reacted to modern life and its stresses.

It is interesting wondering how the Na'vi would react to our way of life.

I think tribal societies do do things like sparing and fighting for the sake of warrior training and exercise, and I'm sure some Na'vi probably do the same. Though I'm not sure they would fight simply for the sake of getting jollies out of it.

I still wonder what the Na'vi would think of Tyler as a person, though. He definitely has a strong will, and a fighting spirit, and his ends the Na'vi would probably consider noble. Though they probably wouldn't approve of his means (Project Mayhem), and maybe his worldview (I'm not sure what the Na'vi would think of nihilism).

Good point about the sparring, etc... they probably wouldn't care so much about that as they would about the nihilism. Life certainly has a purpose, and the Na'vi understand this which is why, in Avatar, they lived the way they did.

Here's a good one: what would the Na'vi think about Jules Winnfield from Pulp Fiction (Aside from the scary face, TM, lol)? A former hitman who pledges to "roam the Earth" at the end of the movie, in my mind this is almost an allusion to the apostle Paul in the bible, who, before following Jesus, was a self-admitted "Persecutor". Jules admittedly only used "Ezekiel 25:17" when he killed people because he "thought it was some cold-blooded **** to say to a mffer", but at the end he realized that it had a much deeper meaning (as Quentin Tarantino edited it to be). What do you think? Valiant of him to turn down a job of killing because he believed he witnessed "divine intervention"? For any of you who saw the movie, do you think that "Ringo" was the "weak" and Jules was the "tyranny of evil men"?
