One of the iconic scenes from 1997 blockbuster film, Titanic, featured Leonardo DiCaprio at the bow of the ship. Shouting a memorable line, “I'm King of the World,” he held out his arms like a bird catching the wind in its wings. There's an esoteric signal there and some epic irony as well.
Here's a clip of the scene. As you watch, note that there are two men at the bow, one behind the other. If you're familiar with the Vitruvian Man you'll recognize this scene as a dramatized version.

Titanic's Tribute to the Vitruvian Man: From One Leonardo to Another! DiCaprio honors Da Vinci. Those responsible for the scene understood several thing about the classic drawing. The so-called man is actually two, engaged in sodomy. By having DiCaprio's character spread his wings, he demonstrates an understanding of the symbolic two headed eagle, another version of the very same engagement. By having the character identify himself in this scene as the king of the world, he demonstrates his understanding of the eagle as the feathered or plumed serpent Amaru, aka Apollo, identities of the coming beast who will reign as the sodomite king of the world. We might also connect this dramatization with the comparable Monas Hieroglyphica of Dr John Dee, who simply identified that king as the sodomizing stick figure with the dot in circle head.
The movie title and name of the featured ship harkens to ancient times and the first pantheon of Greek gods and goddesses. That's fitting.
The epic irony I see has to do with how the Titanic is synonymous with disaster and a sign of judgment being brought upon the proud. Acclaimed by some to be “The ship even God couldn't sink,” it did just that, and only 5 days in on its maiden voyage, on April 15, 1912! What we were shown in James Cameron's film was how the one who exulted, “I'm King of the World,” was dethroned, sinking down into the abyss. As Titanic fallen angel gods and their offspring in the flood... As the sodomite beast and his worshipers in the lake of fire...
Coming soon, maybe, DiCaprio is to play Russian mystic Grigori Rasputin. There might be some kind of trend here. There's no real future in evil.
