Life is a movie. The Quantum Mechanix are way down front, their noses just inches from the screen, trying to figure out, from all that fuzzy chaos, just what the fuck is going on. The closer you get, the fuzzier the logic.
Most just ignore them, and watch the plot. But if you turn away from the plot, you can see the source of the lite back there. And if you stand up to go have a look, you may very well annoy some who just came to watch the show. You are likely to step on toes and stumble around in the dark trying to head for the source of the lite.
Course, the closer you get, the fewer there are annoyed at your progress. But when you enter the projection booth, you see the apparatus, but none of it relates to what has been going on on screen. If all you’ve been doing in watching movies, you dont have a fucking clue as to how it works, or what nomenclature can be used to explain it.
Then, when you get back to your friends, they tell you to sit down and shut up; they came to watch the movie, not listen to your insane ramblings about what you think is going on back there. Moreover, while you were gone, the plot continued, and you prolly dont understand what the movie’s about anymore either.
I’ve found it most useful to ignore the scientists down front as well as the Zen masters way back, and pay attention to the responses of those close enough to watch. Anything which panders to their egos they eat like popcorn. Its remarkable how such shallow images can elicit such strong emotional responses.
