I JUST saw the movie today and it was great! I loved that there was this simple concept Hollywood turned into such an entertaining movie. Usually movies are dumbed down to appeal to the masses but every once in a while a truly intellectually stimulating film slips through the fine tooth comb of the movie brass. Either that or no one can write a half decent script that is both believable enough to get into without realizing that you are in a movie theater every 2 minutes or they are too inconsistent to follow one plotline from beginning to end.
I digress, however this movie came to be I enjoyed it and would recommend it to people who have ever thought about dreams, wondered about the subconscious mind, or considered the possibility of confusing reality and other states of mind. This subject is a personally intriguing one which I have always been interested in exploring. Just think, we could be living in some alternate reality right now and be totally unaware of it. It's enough to make you crazy if you are not completely sure whether you are dreaming or not, which is what I feel like it would be like if you had mental illnesses which altered your mind to such a degree. In other words if I couldn't tell, or wasn't sure I would be a crazy person! Any creative medium be it msuic, speech, writings, artistic creations, or otherwise that invoke the kind of thought that I expereinced today should be celebrated and shared with anyone who has ever had these thoughts, who's interested in exploring our being and concerns themselves with trying to understand life as we know it.

What do you do when you get knocked down?

The correct answer is get back up, right?

Probably, but right and wrong is of course a matter of perception. Anyways, the point is that we do what we need to in order to survive. Most of us will feel a sense of vulnerability, that something can have such a powerful effect on us. That there could be an event, or series of events that would detract from our current situation to the point that we feel the sting of desparation. Desparate to be back to the way things were and to fill this void in our once full being with the things that once gave us no trouble but we now find troublesome to a degree that was once unimaginable. If this sounds overdramatic just shrug it off but if you've ever been knocked down, kicked, smacked off your daily "normal" routine and spun down the downward spiral of insecurity-OK so that was a little heavy, but when you are in the heat of the moment, when things get bad it's how we respond afterward taht shows us that we are better than that, that we can handle that sitaution and that having gone through the situation once we can get through a similar situation or difficulty with more restraint and hope than the first time. Isn't that the point? Who how you live and do what makes you happy! Within reason of crazy kids out there.
