Zeitgeist: Addendum: The film opens with a collection of visual art, film footage and audio quotes. It starts with a speech by Chögyam Trungpa about spirituality, followed by a series of musically synchronized clips of war and explosions culminating with the September 11 attacks. This is followed by another sequence of clips, this time showing war casualties. The films title screen is displayed, and Jordan Maxwells Inner World of the Occult is quoted, which criticizes religious institutions, governments, and banking cartels who are alleged to have misled [the people] away from the true and divine presence in the universe. The films intro ends with a portion of a George Carlin monologue on religion and an accompanying animated cartoon.
