The World of God Words are very powerful things Through words we both attempt describe and are helpless but to endlessly filter our world They are able to inspire love and loyalty as easily they are as unrest and revolution Without them we would be mute as animals hopelessly cognizant but completely incapable of self-expression Words are mans attempt to communicate the individuals experience and through words we are in a constant and changing battle to reach the essence of the human experience The people of Alphaville are as dependent upon words as a means of self-expression as the rest of the world if not more so Through the elimination of all illogical art language becomes the only mode of communication they have no paintings or other visual art from which the individual can draw a subjective and original opinion as to the intention of the artist All logical medium of communication available to the Alphaville populous are contained within the Bible which is bestowed if not forced upon every citizen This wouldnt be extraordinarily different from the theme reoccurring throughout human history of any unanimously excepted and unquestioned religion except that the Alphaville bible isnt a bible at all Its a dictionary The Alphavillians invest as much blind faith in the legitimacy of this dictionary as any devout follower of say Christianity but because they have never been exposed to any other text or interpretation of their Bible both their ability and their possible desire to critique or discard the information given to them is completely negated As Natasha states when she reads the word conscience from a forbidden book Je ne comprend pas She cant understand words not included in her Bible any more then we could understand the French dialogue in the movie without the subtitles While there are many similarities between the Alphaville doctrine and the Christian Bible mainly in the way that both texts are unquestioned by true believers
