I can’t tell if Fiver is so used to seeing death from his visions that he’s calm in the face of danger, his pessimistic side is showing, or if he’s simply in his element at times like these, but he certainly has a flair for accepting his demise laying down when there’s other rabbits around.

The Promised Land.

No more shall I look to the far skies
for my Father’s loving aid;
Since here upon earth His treasure lies,
and here is His kingdom laid.
No more through the mist of things unknown
I’ll search for the Promised Land;
For time is the footstool of His throne,
and I am within His hand.
The wealth that is more than finest gold is here,
if I shall but ask;
And wisdom unguessed and power untold
are here for every task.
The gates of heaven are before my eyes;
Their key is within my hand;
No more shall I look to the far skies;
For here is the Promised Land.

My favourite scene from a classic Polish film, The Promised Land (Ziemia Obiecana), a story of three friends and ambitious entrepreneurs - a Pole, a German, and a Jew - trying to set up a new factory in the industrial city of Łódź. Below you have my quick translation of the dialogue:

Max: For a funeral like this you’d have to convert, though. And you don’t like Protestantism.

Moritz: Of course I don’t! And I’d never convert.

Max: But why?

Moritz: Ah, you see, I am a man who loves and needs beautiful things. I want to have… A better funeral than Bucholz. After a week of working myself to death, I need to rest! I want to go to a pretty hall with pretty paintings and sculptures… Pretty architecture… Pretty ceremonials… And a piece of a pretty concert to boot.

Borowiecki: He likes those ceremonies of ours. Those colours, those smells, those bells, those chants, my God! (M: Yes!) And if there must be a sermon, it cannot be boring. (M: Of course!) You want to hear the delicate talk on higher matters and that’s nobel (M: Yes, yes, yes.) Gives the man joy, lust for life…

Moritz: And what do I get in a Kirche? Four bare walls and all’s as empty, as if they’re about to go bankrupt! The pastor rants about Hell, some unplesantries… And do I go to a church to get myself worked up? I have my nerves, I’m not a boor, and besides, I don’t like tormenting myself with boring talk. And besides, I like to know what I’m dealing with. What is this business, ‘Protestantism’? Huh? Huh?

Max: Wait a min…

Moritz: The pope, now - that’s a proper business!

Hilarious that Rufus calls Hojo out on his extremely ironic distaste for mysticism, but Hojo is probably right. This is the Promised Land that Shinra was searching for, sure, but all they wanted was a land rich with Mako energy. Even if there were a physical, geographical Promised Land as designed by the Ancients, I highly doubt it was the planet’s wound from the genocidal alien being that destroyed them - plus, they call this area the Knowlespole, anyway.

The other point of evidence is that Sephiroth talks about seeking the Promised Land and, of course, winds up here. I don’t know that’s much of an argument in favour considering how frequently he’s full of shit. The Northern Cave, ground zero for Jenova’s arrival and his own plans, may very well be the Promised Land to him, however.

Either way, it’s the last we’ll hear about the entire concept for a while.
