Or is it a series of spinn-off movies from one-another?
I have with many friends and other people discussed what out lives can be structured like. We have philosofyed much about this through time. One point of view is that we are all a role-play character like in WoW. In a deeper explanation; we are here to fulfill quests. The computer character is us, the people, and the player is our soul. When we die, some comes back to play trough the game, others make reincarnations (creates a new character) and others go on in, i guess, another story of quests.
Think about this for a while. Many aspects will fall under this belief of life. It did so for me anyways
Another point of view is this (my favorite one so far). We are all a star in our own movie. I know this has been said before by someone I don’t know, but this is a really good analogy for life in my eyes.
Try to view your life from the perspective of the audience. If your life was a movie, would it be a drama film? an action movie? a comedy? In most cases I think a life dipps through most genres by time.
My movie synopsis would be like this: “A boy, unknowingly walking a path that he has laid in a randomized pattern, only to find out later on that his path was drawn before his birth started. Through life he goes up and he goes down, little did he and everybody else know that he suffered from a number of, what the society calls, ‘psychological disorders‘. He tryes to act like the others to fit in but none of the pieces seem to fit one-another. After a while of goofing around the greater meaning, he decides to do something drastic. Luckily he fails and turn the unknowing mind of himself around to open eyes of the two, soon three. The struggle hardens each day as well as it softens in a never ending loop of gaining knowledge of the Universe. Where will this all end down the road, or will it ever?”
Just by reading what i just wrote allmost makes me want to watch that movie, so I close my eyes and rewind.
What insights do I reach by rewinding the tape of my life? One thing that is most likely for me, is that it all seems to actually follow a manuscript where all the characters of my life are insanely good actors. Even though we never really lose anyone, we still cry and often curse the heavens for these situations, just like a good actor when a role in the movie dies. The actor knows that the actuall person is not dead but they can “fake” a great cry when its needed.
Now that it is said, What if you unknowingly played a part in a movie where every line was, sort of, downloaded to your mind in a matter that makes it seem like your own idea? Just like the character in a movie. The character doesn’t know what its about to say, but the actor does.
So, What if we, the people as we know each other, is actually just characters in a very long movie and the actor is our soul?
And in stead of reincarnations to another person, the actor just take on another role when the movie for now is done?
I bet some of you think im out of my mind, but you are right. I am out of my mind but not in that “crazy” sense of the word. That being said, I am just doing what a script I haven’t read tells me to do.
So if it is like this, then we are all movies who spin-off each other? Pretty heavy thought for some, even for me at first. My movie span-off from another movie who span-of another movie at the same time my movie is the center for me as well as your movie is for you and all the other movies are for them, but we spin-off each other in a matter that makes it the most heavy DVD collection ever produced.
In all this phylosofying a question apears in my head. Is God simply the best “Multi-Movie-Director/Producer” the Universe has ever seen?
Thank you for reading. I hope I didn’t freak you out
Untill next time:
Keep the Director happy, do what he would like you to and he is good to the hard wood through the fire up till water and around again:) When He gives you a scenario with no heads up, just say “Yes, Sir!” Ain’t nothing else to do or say.
I would like you to think about my concept of “life Synopsis” and share your synopsis with the rest of us. I bet it would be a really interesting movie.
If you feel it is hard to write a synopsis, you can think about it like this. How would you write a short movie summary to be placed on the back of a DVD-cover without giving away the ending.
