saw this odd mind expanding / warping movie on cable tonight..
"WAKING LIFE".. this movie.. filmed as live action, but then converted / painted / alterted.. into this odd animated / painted sort've floaty dream movie.
sort've this odd exploration of philosophies of life / death / reality / the dream world.. and all this nutty existential shit..
real cool mind expanding stuff.. but, it sorta does ya head in..
I'd recommend you hunt it out and see it..
or y'know.. if you're one of me local friends..
go ahead and nick it off me, I got it on videotape..
but yeah.. after watching a film like that..
like watching the MATRIX..
you start to question notions of reality..
but, in a much bigger scale than the MATRIX..
am I dreaming.. or is this real?
and wot would it matter either way?
and if it didn't matter?
then wot is the point of it all?
without any point to it..
am I ultimately free.. just to invent it all by whim..
if I chose to create my reality..
which, really.. we all do..
since all our perceptions / filtered from the senses to our mind..
merely feed our dillusions of wot our reality is..
so.. we invent the world we live in..
is my reality real?
do I dream this in my waking state?
is the colour GREEN really green? or something else?
or does it exist at all?
now.. if I can create..
if I can communicate..
the reality in my head.. can be projected outwards..
to hopefully reach other people..
if it is successful.. other people agree with it..
or communicate with it.. interface with it..
we live our constructed reality in our heads..
as artists.. we project it outwards..
in the hope others will chose to live in our heads..
see the world as we see it..
dream as we dream..
or some crap like that..
coz.. all in all..
the ultimate fear is..
I am alone..
you are all figments..
and not only that..
but I am a figment..
and all of this is a lie..
or.. all this is real..
but I could never understand the truth of it..
and we shall forever remain alone..
trapped in our own dreaming..
never to cross paths..
I AM being weirdly philosophical today..
go see the movie..
then you'll understand why I'm rambling.. ;)
