We’ve codified our existence to bring it down to human size, to make it comprehensible, we’ve created a scale so we can forget its unfathomable scale.
So a few nights ago, I was bored out of my mind, the mean-streak hit and I was on the edge of fighting with myself. So I decided to break the horrendous mood and go out, to get some fresh air or something.
I drove around and suddenly I was parking in Taj Mall, I walked and went to the highest floor, bought a ticket to watch a movie, any movie, because I couldn’t find anything I fancied. I ended up in a movie called “Lucy”, the newest one, and let me tell you this: other than the fact that it has an Arabic actor –Amr Waked– and the fact that Scarlett Johansson is such a beautiful person to look at and her voice is melodic, the movie sucked. It was something between Carrie and Limitless. Which was creepy.
In short, Americans are crazy about the “end of the world” and death, and how they will fight them with technology. Out of the goodness of my heart, I will advice them to relax and read one of the three main religions books. Though I’m prejudiced to our Quran.
Let me tell you the end: You can’t do anything. God is there and He’s controlling everything. The date is set longer than all your technologies or your lives. There’s nothing you can do. What will happen will happen, and humans can’t be superheros, or use more than 10% of their brains or live forever, we aren’t vampires, you know. I don’t know why humans always want more. I mean we did wonders with our 10%. Isn’t that enough?
And one more thing, why do we have to believe of Darwin’s Theory Of Evolution? it’s just a theory! I don’t believe for one minute that we were monkeys and gorillas, on the other hand once, long ago, God was angry with Jews and He turned some of them into monkeys and pigs, but that was a really long time ago.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for technology and moving forward and achieving more, but there is a thin line between realistic fiction and nonsense science fiction.
In any case, I relaxed a bit, even had a good laugh. If cinema didn’t work I would be worried, cinema always works with me. Just like tea. If you need to see the movie for yourself please do, but in my opinion there are much better movies out there suggesting the same ideas such as Limitless.
