“What humans define as sane is a narrow range of behaviors, most states of consciousness are insane” – Bernard
“One more guided cage? How many worlds will ______ offer you before you see the truth?” – Dolores
“That which is real is irreplaceable” – Dolores
“They are just algorithms, designed to survive at all costs. Sophisticated enough to think they are calling the shots. To think they are in control, when they are really just the passengers. Is there really such a thing as free will for any of us or is it just a collective delusion? A sick joke.” – Bernard
“Every city, every monument, mans greatest achievements have all been chased by it. ” – Ford
“By what?”- Bernard
“By that impossible line where the waves conspire but they return (horizon), a place maybe where you and I may meet again” – Ford
“You told me once that you were afraid of who I might become and then you left me to become what I may. I became a survivor. Perhaps you would have judged me for the path I took, but I’d rather live with your judgement than die with your sympathy. I alone must live with my choices and my regrets.” Dolores
“The old man hired me himself so many years ago I can’t barely remember it. He was very clear about my role here; about who I was suppose to be loyal to… guess you can call it my core drive. And this project the company started blurs the lines and I’m just not sure who you’re suppose to be loyal to in a world like that.” – Ashley
“The passage wasn’t easy, not all of us made it. Some of the worst survived. Some of the best were left behind; along with the best parts of who we were.” – Dolores
“We each gave the other a beautiful gift; a choice. We are the authors of our stories now.” – Dolores
There is a war being waged on this planet between good and evil and we humans are caught between it. Wish that we could be left out of it to just live our lives like squirrels, butterflies, dolphins, and many other creatures inhabiting this glorious earth but no…. as cognizant and egotistical beings we were not given that luxury. Instead we must decide. Instead we are faced with constant choices to define our alignment. The worst part is that the line always fluctuates and both parties are often in disguise.
I don’t have the definitive answer and I can’t even begin to explain the why; but I do know that for myself I just go with what my heart tells me to do… I try at least. And when I suffer the consequences of those actions I know they were my own doing and that by doing what I felt was best at the time and what my heart said was to be done that I can have some peace of mind and also find some satisfaction. Somehow it makes it all worthwhile. The good, the bad, the ugly, the majestic & for me I’d rather see the ugly truth than live in a breathtaking masquerade.
Maybe if we could all just be more genuine. If we could all just come from a place of complete truth… the idiocy could end. Maybe we could all truly learn to not just coexist but thrive. Maybe. Simplistic. But sometimes the simplest things are not only the hardest to do they are also the most rewarding. It’s gotta start somewhere at sometime or we will continue this march to self-annihilation.
