"The Man in the High Castle" Revelations (TV Episode 2015) Poster

Trivia

Japan has a long history of policies that restrict possession of firearms to the general public. In order to manufacture or sell firearms and ammunition, a government license is required.

In the world of "The Man in the High Castle," gun laws would be as strict as they have historically been in Japan. Licenses would likely be granted to highly placed Japanese, but not to any other races.

Nazi purity strategies began with forced sterilization of the disabled and foreigners, escalating to mass murder. In its most extreme form, the Euthanasia Program, foreshadowed Nazi Germany's broader genocidal policies. 'Racial hygiene' propaganda channeled health promotion programs, teaching that impure genes from 'the unclean' had to be eradicated in order to create a physically and intellectually superior race.

In the world of "The Man in the High Castle", with the Reich's regime having limited control over the Neutral Zone, characters with disabilities or those not 'racially pure' would travel or be smuggled into the Neutral Zone for a chance of survival.

The idea of the 'common good' is thought to have its origins in the writings of the ancient Greeks and Romans, such as: Plato, Aristotle, and Cicero. Putting party/country/collective ahead of the individual was at the center of Hitler's Nazi ideology. It was enshrined in point 25 of the '25 point program' developed in the mid 1920s: "Common good before individual good".

The Japanese imperial family is believed to descend from Amateras, the Shinto Japanese sun goddess. Born from the left eye of her father, Izanagi, she had children with her brother the storm god Susanoo. However, when Susanoo destroyed her dwelling, she retreated to a cave leaving the world in darkness. A party of 800 gods lured her out, where she saw her reflection in a mirror. The Grand Shrine of Ise, the foremost Shinto shrine in Japan, is Amaterasu's primary worship site. According to legend, the mirror where she manifested is kept there as one of the three Imperial Treasures (the other two are a jeweled necklace and a sword).

In the design of "The Man in the High Castle," the Neutral Zone is patterned after the late 19th century folklore of the 'wild west.' The costume design team played with this notion when designing for the Marshal. From bolo tie to cowboy hat, it was a deliberate choice to parade the juxtaposition of a Nazi donning the iconic American look of a cowboy.

In the Shinto religion, Sumo wrestling represents the individual's struggle to achieve a divine awakening and mastery of the lower self. Before a bout, the wrestlers perform a stomping shiko ritual to exorcise evil spirits from the dohyo - the wrestling ring. Women are not allowed to enter the dohyo. Sumo wrestlers have less personal freedoms than other athletes and live restricted lives, away from emotional distractions. Their daily routines are defined by austerity and strict rules, symbolizing control of the lower self.

The room at the hotel that Rudolph Wegener stays in is room 808. This is a oblique reference to the track called "Pacific State" (1989) by "808 State" a nom de plume of Gerald Simpson. The song was probably the first chill out techno song to reach mainstream charts.
