“The Cultural Event of the Season”
Christmas holidays included a wonderful seven hour road trip where my son and I got away to check out a favored college campus he may be attending.
Entertainment for the first night, the 26th, was his treat…a showing of the movie Interstellar. He’d seen it already. Twice. Pulled as many friends along as he could to both. Had read the script last summer, having borrowed it from someone who knew someone who’s mother’s uncle’s second nephew had an in somewhere to get it…or something like that. He loved it then and counted down to opening night.
It wasn’t quite what I expected (no aliens), and it was so much more…more than a space story, a sci-fi story, an adventure story, a love story (without a romantic couple), it’s an event that leaves viewers speechless for a space, afterward, processing the implications of spirit and science.
Peering into a copy of December’s issue of Hollywood Reporter, that crossed my desk, covering the upcoming awards season contenders, I’m sharing the centerfold (hello? prime real estate, what is that saying?) — a reproduced review from the New York Times — The Cultural Event of the Season. It’s significance is in the illustration of the awakening. The reviewer saw the movie, not just watched it. Oscar Wilde wrote, “to look at a thing is quite different from seeing a thing….” That’s discernment.
Please indulge me… see the awakening as you read, not a simple movie review, but a wonderment in capturing a seismic shift. See you again below the article.
Mr. Brooks saw most of what I saw, and while I noted the slight few biblical references (what epic doesn’t have them?), they, themselves, didn’t tell the story, rather simply adding archetypal structure.
What I would add is the brilliant depictions of 5D and the hologram we call reality.
No matter what any viewer thinks of the movie (a dear friend has a brother in ‘the biz’ whose family did not like it, quoth the 8 year old, “it lacked structural integrity”), they cannot un-see what they saw. The seed is there, planted for blossoming once watered. Thus, the cultural impact Mr. Brooks describes is truly exponential.
If you haven’t seen it yet, please do. Join the conversation. Rent it when available if the big screen thing isn’t for you. It’s not another Star Wars, regardless of its many truths. There will be no toy figures, no conventions down the road. But, there will be conversations.
If you want to see it, stop here and come back after.
If you’ve seen it, please continue on….
*****Serious Spoiler Alert*****
Driving home, my son asked what I thought were the best things about the movie. Together we decided —
- Most beautiful — Love as gravity; having its own gravitational pull, transcending dimensions of time and space; a palpable, dependable force, magnetic like a compass
- Depiction of 5D time as mutable…dropping in on any event, akin to dropping a pin on a map, all of which are happening simultaneously
- We are, in time and space, where we focus; thus, in 5D, we move freely between events
- Depiction of our hologram as binary…simply 0’s and 1’s
- A wormhole accurately depicted as spherical vs a tube
- A black hole as rimmed and intersected by solar fire vs previously depicted inflowing blackness
And, perhaps the most profound…no g.o.d. It’s us.
Just as the Hopi have said all along…We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
