Debrianna on Cyphers
Helen is in a corporate environment for many years and is sick of hitting the glass ceiling and she is at a point in her life where she doesn’t want to pretend that she doesn’t see anything anymore or doesn’t have a voice.
The name of the series, Cyphers is appropriate since it also carries one of the themes of the main character Helen Sawyer. Cypher means a non-entity of a person or thing with no value or importance. Cyphers is the mathematical symbol denoting the absence of quantity also.
The storyline contains a theme that most people can relate to these days and that is the force that is driving many to the edge of desperation, by unpredicted and never foreseen sources. It is a moment where she comes into herself, where she recognizes her power and where she realizes her own strengths. This issue happens for a lot of women, where they get stifled by either a company, life or a relationship and then truly realize what they are made of and how strongly they can fight.
A lot of women look at themselves and say “I’m not doing that anymore”, not wishing to repeat the same old mistakes in their lives. The series does make a case for how women have to cope with today having a “male mind” at work and a feminine mind at home having to play both roles to cope with this world.
The characters experience a shakeup of their normal circumstances and eventually must face the flaws in their relationships, the world and within themselves
Where this dramatic series comes into a modern theme is about the environment, food, resources and what is happening to the universal consciousness. Every aspect of life has changed drastically recently from political changes, environment and the role of women especially concerning their own rights.
The Pilot Episode of Cyphers opens with “man created corporations in the glory of himself” a fitting theme for today’s world of corporate power over people’s lives.
Appropriately the greed over food and water, tainted sources and dwindling supplies in a growing world population and the question is the scarcity due to corporate influences of profit rather than actual scarcity.
A corporation knowing “the key to unlimited power is dominion over food and water” in a sinister world.
