Judy Kennedy, Phoenix-based author of Spiritual Practice, Occultism and Extraterrestrial Intelligence: A Travel Guide For Beyond The Rainbow (Paper Wings Publishing), believes Oz demonstrates how we can see the world multidimensionally and not just in black and white.
In addition, Kennedy says the Oz residents represent different types of E.T.s and the key is that Dorothy conquers them through her own power rather than relying on someone else saving her.
Kennedy says thats why her favorite moment in the film is when Glinda asks, Are you a good witch or a bad witch? because, as she puts it, Dorothy doesnt realize were all witches. For instance, Jesus was a witch.
While Kennedy believes the film teaches people how to deal with extraterrestrials, she says the flying monkeys dont represent aliens but the people who try and hide the truth about them. And the Munchkins arent aliens either they simply represent a culture Dorothy isnt used to.
