Prometheus Bluray Easter Egg – Language of the Gods

I received a hidden video clip from the Prometheus Blu-ray disc, an Easter egg of sorts, which shows a short five minute documentary on the linguistics used in Prometheus. – Apparently there are many more hidden clips on the disc. The video is called Language of the Gods

Here is Dr. Anil Biltoo, the linguistics consultant who worked on using the synthetic language – known as Proto Indo-European (PIE), that both the Engineers and David speak throughout the film. You can read more about that on a previous article The Linguistics of Prometheus.

I’ve included a shot of the script, for the benediction scene, below as the video didn’t make it that clear. It also contains an English translation of the  scene.

Towards the end of the video we see Dr. Biltoo demonstrate the range of PIE using the famous “Tears in Rain” soliloquy as performed by Rutger Hauer:

I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. [laughs] Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like [coughs] tears in rain. Time to die. – Roy Batty [Rutger Hauer]
