Working on Creating the Subjective Reality Website

I’d better launch this thing soon.  I really have to pour my heart and soul into this.  I have to work on it minimum 3 hours a day, 7 days a week.  No excuses.  It is going to be tremendously hard work, but it will be worth it.  I can literally design a site I’m passionate about, and make decent money from it.  Just look what Leo at Zen Habits has done with a simple philosophy.  The only limit I’m going to have is eye strain.  But putting in 3 hours, spaced out throughout the day and night, shouldn’t be a problem for me.  I should start getting up no later than 9 AM, so that I can get at least 2 hours in before noon.  I’m thinking the name of the site should be  called Subjective Reality Central, unless that name is already taken.  I want to cover everything that relates to subjective reality, and this is a niche that I don’t think will be too saturated.  I’ll be examining a lens from which you can view reality, where you will have no fear, and nothing to hold you back except your imagination of what is possible.  I wish I could use David Icke’s tagline:  “Exposing the dream world we believe to be real.”  Maybe something like, “Life is a dream, you are the dreamer, and it’s time to wake up.”  Or I could use Bill Hicks’ tagline, at the top of every page.

This is pretty much a bottomless wellspring of posts.  I could write about this stuff all day, so I think I’ve got a way to totally create a website I feel great about, and use ads and affiliate links to generate income.  I am going to create an online business that I can feel good about.  One where I do my best work.  I’ve done enough research on it to be qualified as almost an expert.  I just need to focus more on living what I talk about.  If life is a dream, you should have no fear whatsoever, except the biological fight or flight response.  There is nothing to fear but fear itself.  And if this truly is a dream world, you don’t even have to fear that.  I just have to get myself to totally believe it, 100%.  And I also have to believe I will succeed 100%.  Sure, it may be hard work, but I need to dedicate myself fully to this endeavor.

I just need to work extra hard at it.  There’s no substitute for hard work.  I have to challenge myself with this site, make it top-notch, with quality content.  I’ll definitely have to change my diet for this.  I need to stick to a routine as well.  I know that if I don’t, I know it may hurt me in the long run.  I’ll need to expand my consciousness as far as it will go.  I need to read Steve Pavlina’s experience of his 30 day trial of subjectivity.  I’ll obviously need to do one of my own as well, while creating this site.  I’ve got plenty of article ideas, up there, and I’ll have plenty more before the site is finished, if it ever is.  I intend to add to it continuously for a matter of years, to create the most comprehensive SR site out there.  I have to be willing to do the hard work that it will take to get this site off the ground, and then I can add to it preferably at least 3 times a week.  If not more.  I’ve really got to embrace this lens, and take it as far as I can before I can fully comprehend the implications of going down this road.  I’m going to cite sources where necessary, although most of them will come from maybe 5 or less places.  Maybe more, as time goes on.

Buddha believed this was how reality was, but Buddhism is full of unnecessary rules.  They’ve got precepts, you have to be a vegetarian, and a lot of other limiting beliefs.  But isn’t that the same with all belief systems?  The only one that can feasibly encompass all of them is subjective reality and the realm  of quantum physics.  I can even sit in my chair in the living room to write these articles, as that will most likely be the best place, seeing how typing here is bad for my neck.  At least there I have a neck rest.  Subjectivity encompasses objectivity, as it fits inside the whole dream philosophy.  When you are dreaming, are you aware of anything outside the dream?  No. But you believe the dream is real.  And even if you die in the dream, you wake up alive in your bed.  We literally all are the dreamer, not the dream itself.  The dreamer is consciousness, and the more conscious we get, the more validation we get of this dream world being, in fact, a dream.  Hell, even Jesus talked about this.  So did Buddha, as I mentioned before.  I have a real good feeling about this.  I just have to build it, market it, which SBI will help with that, and people will come.  I’ll sell books about it through affiliate links, and Adsense is a no-brainer right here.  I could become affiliates with Amazon, other online book retailers, and people who produce audio and video of this type of material.  This should be a fun and exciting ride!  I’m certainly looking forward to it.

Freedom

I believe that one of life’s greatest pleasures is the freedom to be nobody but yourself.  The problem is that society and other things try to condition us to be something but ourselves.  We all become like robots, all thinking the same thoughts, all feeling the same limited range of feelings.  The education system turns us into obedient worker slaves.  The media instills fear and rage in us, so that we feel it is a dangerous world, so best not stand out.  We live in a high-anxiety, high-stress culture, and we’re all measured by how much stress we can take, which only shuts our brains down to a significant extent.

The fear and stress that is thrust upon us by every channel you can think of is very daunting, and can really get to you.  We are all slaves to the culture we were born into, and there’s no escaping it, at least not completely.  You can never truly, fully drop out.  The people who control the world have ensured that by exterminating all the indigenous peoples throughout the world over the centuries.  Either that, or they forced them into our way of life, and now they are suffering greatly.  Before these people were exterminated, there was unparalleled freedom on Earth, where we could do as we pleased, as long as it didn’t hurt anyone else.  Before civilization, we were wild creatures, foraging for food, which was in abundance everywhere you looked.

There was also a time when us humans knew the true nature of reality, that life was simply an illusion, and that we were one consciousness, everything included.  Then there were a bunch of cataclysms on the Earth, which caused so much upheaval, and destroyed every people that lived on this planet, leaving us all with a clean slate, but damaged in so many ways.  In an ancient Zulu legend, the Earth turned over onto its current axis, which can only happen when a foreign body causes it to do that, which I would suggest was the Moon being brought by entities that wished to control us, and make us forget who we truly are.  They’ve created a world that suits them, not us, and they feed off of our negative energy, mainly fear.  They reside just out of human sight, but close enough to have temporary appearances in this reality.  They interbred with ancient humans, and created what is called hybrid bloodlines.

Now, these hybrid bloodlines control the physical world, but they are controlled from a place just outside of this frequency band.  They, as early as 40,000 years ago, claimed their right to rule, based on their descent from the “serpent God.”  There are ancient drawings of serpents and snakes everywhere in the ancient world, and there is no refuting that.  There are many drawings depicting the interbreeding with humanity, and there are still symbols of it everywhere today.  Just look at the AMA’s logo.  Two snakes coiled around a cross or something like that.

Symbolism is very powerful, and that’s another tool they use to control us.  Take major sporting events for example.  In the Super Bowl, where hundreds of millions of people watch every year, there are so many Illuminati symbols in the halftime shows that it gets to be incredibly obvious.  At the 2012 Olympics, there was massive symbolism relating to the bloodlines and the hidden hand that runs this world as it is today.  Symbols are information, and when you focus on information, you take it in on a subconscious level.  We are in a state of mass hypnosis here, and the only way out is through our own consciousness and information that will help us see all the subliminal control mechanisms we have around us.

The rabbit hole goes very deep, and there’s always more to uncover.  But the more we know, the better off we are.  That is how we will become free again.  Knowledge truly is power.  Who among us ever asks the big questions?  Who are we?  Why are we here?  Who ever comes up with a satisfactory answer?  If you understand quantum physics, it will tell you that the world is primarily subjective, a dream within a dream.  We are living in an artificial reality created by these entities, primarily called the Archons by the Gnostics, whose Library of Alexandria was burned down by the Crusades.  99% of their information was destroyed throughout the years, and it wasn’t until 1945 in Egypt when a peasant found a jar sealed from roughly 1500 years ago that the Gnostic belief system was fully understood.  Luckily, no one destroyed that before it got out.

Also, Don Juan Matis, a Central American shaman, talks at length about these entities, and how they are mind parasites, and feed on our fear and other low-vibrational emotions.  And these parasites love to feed off of the energy of children the most, because they are the most full of life, especially before puberty.  Why do you think all ancient cultures sacrificed “young virgins?”  That was code for children.  Imagine how terrified the child was, and how much fear energy was being created.  It must have been like an all-you-can-eat buffet for these so-called “gods.”  And these hybrid bloodlines love to drink the blood of the sacrifice.  That is also well-documented in history.

All I can say is that I am eternally grateful that all this information is coming out.  Finally, we have an idea of what is truly going on in the world, and we need to take extreme steps to save it.  We need to realize we are truly in control.  We outnumber these people/entities at least 100 to 1.  I would guess much more than that, to be honest.  We just need to refuse whatever the control system tries to throw at us.  We need to say NO to microchips, smart grids, smart meters, and anything else that reduces our power, while simultaneously making us more dependent on the government and society at large.  We obviously need a consciousness shift for this sort of “radical” change.  We must remember who we are, infinite consciousness/possibility.

For true freedom, we must not be violent.  You don’t fight for peace, you peace for peace.  Just say NO, with a smile on your face and a jump in your step.  If the President or the Prime Minister comes on the TV and says, “We’ve had a talk, and we’ve decided to do this,” what if millions of people said, “We’re not allowing it?”  Where’s their power then?  Their power is simply in our acquiescence.  That is the only reason such a small quantity of people can control the world, because we are conditioned to believe we have no power to stop them.  Bollocks!

We are infinite possibility having an experience.  We have been cut off from Source, or Consciousness through very deliberate measures, and that has eroded our freedoms, day by day, year by year.  And I think it’s about time we reclaim our true freedom to be who we truly are, and to experience our full potential as humans, and as consciousness.  We used to be so much more than we are now, and we have that ability to reclaim that higher level of awareness, simply by realizing we all are one, there is no separation between us and them, and that we have the power to create heaven on Earth, if only we keep raising our consciousness.  This will require listening to one’s heart, not one’s gut.  Connect through your heart chakra, because that is the way to accessing consciousness.  We all need to try and get as many people as possible to do this.  Once the tipping point is reached, the control system won’t stand a chance.

 

Enlightenment

What is enlightenment?  It is when you recognize the world for what it is: an illusion.  Everything in this so called universe is an illusion, a dream.  It truly does not exist.  All that exists is God, or consciousness, or whatever it is you wish to call it.  What you are is a divine being, a part of God or consciousness, having a dream of separation, when there is no such thing as separation.  Your ego is a part of this dream.  It is a very persistent dream and there is little room for spectacle.  We think that it is real, just as if we are dreaming while sleeping and feel that the dream is real, but when we wake up, we realize just how absurd the dream was and how it is in no way real, but a projection of the mind or consciousness.  The key to enlightenment is that you become lucid in this dream that we call reality and realize that true reality is Source or God and nothing else.  It is often referred to as Heaven.

For those people who have become enlightened, such as the Buddha and Jesus Christ, they lived in such a way that inspired others to write about them.  Once you become enlightened, there is no more need for additional reincarnations.  It may take many lifetimes to get where it is you need to be to reach enlightenment, but realizing that this reality is indeed a dream, an illusion, is the first step to getting there.  We all are one in reality, but in the dream, we have the illusion of separation, due to the ego’s influence on our consciousness.  The ego is very defensive, and will do almost anything to ensure its survival.  If you ever try to transcend your ego, you will notice that it will fight you to the bitter end.  It will try and trick you.  But what most people don’t realize is that the ego, along with what we think of as the real world, is an illusion and the only true reality is of Source.  The universe was created by the ego, but only in a dream form.  But we don’t realize that until after we die as a physical being or become enlightened in our last incarnation on this planet.

If we were to all “wake up” instantaneously, it would be very traumatic emotionally.  This is why most people don’t truly wake up until they have achieved enlightenment.  It is a noble goal, and could take many lifetimes to achieve.  But you can accelerate the process by becoming a student of A Course in Miracles, or other texts that are designed to get you to the point where you can forgive unconditionally.  Forgiveness is the key to salvation.  And since what you are forgiving isn’t even truly real, but a dream, it’s not so hard to do.  That is, once you get the big picture about the true nature of reality.  I find this to be a fascinating belief system, which comes partially from Jesus Christ’s real teachings, not the stuff you’ll find in the Bible, but the stuff that Jesus and other enlightened beings actually said or did.  Not what people wrote about him centuries later in an attempt to control the masses through guilt and shame.  Christ never advocated such nonsense.  He loved everyone equally, and never judged anyone.  A true humanitarian.

I have to say, reading The Disappearance of the Universe has truly opened my eyes to what many of those enlightened beings were trying to convey.  All of it makes perfect sense from a subjective viewpoint, because they realized that the world is indeed subjective, not objective, and that objectivity was simply an illusion that people regarded as true, simply because that is how they had been conditioned.  The religions we have today have barely any resemblance to what these prophets actually taught, and it has become more about money and converting people to your way of thinking than anything else.  But when you look at what these people actually said, you realize that it has no denomination, as it is the simple truth and nothing else.  The universe is an illusion and the true reality is God consciousness.  Total and complete oneness.

I figure this stuff may be way out there for some people, but it makes sense intuitively to me and many others who have heard of such ideas as subjective reality and God consciousness.  To become enlightened is to truly know who you really are, not your ego, and not your mind, but pure God consciousness.  You are the same as God, as he created you in his image.  Not your physical body, but your spirit or soul.  And when your physical body dies off, you will return home to whence you came, and then come back to the illusion until you reach the peak of enlightenment.  At that point, you will no longer have any need to go back into the illusion, other than to help other illusory bodies pass over to the enlightenment side.  It’s a journey to say the least, and getting there will not be easy.  Most people need help from some spiritual source, but it will happen for everyone eventually, as there is no time limit, as the time in this illusory reality is also illusory.  So, no need to worry if you’re not there yet.  You will be, your path is already pre-determined, but you can always choose to accelerate or delay the process of returning Home.  The choice is up to you.  I definitely recommend reading The Disappearance of the Universe, and then A Course in Miracles.  I haven’t read the latter yet, but the former has tons of references from that book, so it has a similar structure.

Good luck on your path towards ultimate bliss and enlightenment.  It may take lifetimes, but it will be well worth it in the end.

Stretching Your Reality

I just saw this video about a 1928 time traveler appearing in the extra footage of a Charlie Chaplin film.  Or so we are led to believe.  It looks like a woman talking on a cell phone.  She is holding something white and rectangular in her hand.  She is definitely talking, but she is wearing old time-y clothing and it could obviously be a gag.  I immediately discounted it as something that could be explained logically or rationally, because quite frankly, time travel scares the hell out of me.  If time travel were possible, it could create some very scary consequences.  Even if one person could travel through time, it would create chaos if they did certain things.  The only way it could be feasible is if the person didn’t make it obvious he/she was from the future and didn’t do something that would alter the whole history of the world.  And even a small change could alter the course of the world, as seen in the theory known as the Butterfly Effect (not the movie).

If someone like me truly found a way to travel through time, I know exactly what I would do.  I would go back in time, gamble on things I knew were a sure thing, put that money in an account, and come back to the present day and live off of it.  Who wouldn’t?  I don’t think it would be wise to travel too much back or forward in time, because it would be a bit irresponsible in my judgment.  I would spend my time after making an amazing amount of money, after interest, to contribute positively to the world and since I would have all the time in my life, it would be easier than doing this kind of thing in short bursts in breaks between working and sleeping.  But I don’t even think I would actually want to travel through time.  It’s just not something that would be fun for me.  I would rather have the ability to stop time than travel through it.  Then I would be able to do things without destroying the past or altering the future, which I don’t even think it is possible to travel into the future, because it doesn’t exist yet.  And it never has.  It goes well with my logic and my sense of reality.  If the present is all we truly have, then that is the only moment we can control.

It’s hard to believe that something like stopping time is possible either, but it also could be, but I don’t know.  I guess it wouldn’t hurt to be open to anything being possible in this present moment, but to truly believe it is harder than it looks.  If this reality is truly a dream, then anything is possible, although it is our beliefs that will constrict us.  I still don’t truly believe that this reality is a dream because there are too many external things pointing me away from that, but then I have to realize that when I am dreaming, it feels real to me.  Even the most absurd thing seems real at the time, unless I’m lucid.  We even hear it in nursery rhymes, such as Row Your Boat:  “Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream.  Merrily, merrily, merrily, merrily, life is but a dream.”  That sounds more like a spiritual quote than a nursery rhyme, doesn’t it?  Something just feel on my desk without any provocation.  That was intense.  I guess I should take that as a yes.  Life is but a dream.

But how do I control the dream?  How do I become the master of my reality?  I guess life didn’t come with an instruction manual, so perhaps I need to figure out most of this on my own.  Or with help from others.  Or both.  That this world is some kind of projection of consciousness, and that I am the primary consciousness, but not me as my body, but me as the whole container in which reality is taking place.  This is hard enough to grasp intellectually, never mind emotionally.  To truly just dive in and accept this as fact is as daunting as accepting any other spiritual notion as fact.  Because you aren’t dealing with objectivity here, but subjectivity.  And that is something that takes a little while to get used to.  Sure, you can say that it makes some sense, but you have to truly believe it and it has to be on autopilot as your default way of thinking before you see what kind of results you can get with it.

There was a time back in 2006 where I truly grasped this for a couple of weeks and it was strange to say the least.  It was weird simply because there were a few instances of people I didn’t know giving me money for reasons that made little sense to me.  First, it was getting more tips at work.  At the time, I was working as a bagger in a supermarket.  I was getting at least $2 for bringing groceries out to people’s cars.  And then a couple days later, I received $5 from a man who said that I helped his mother the week previous, which was odd.  And then someone dropped 5 $100 bills on the ground and I was overjoyed, but then I thought that I’d better tell him what he just lost, because it wasn’t the money that was important.  It was the fact that I manifested it.  So I gave it back to him.  And then I got scared.  I thought about what it would be like to keep seeing all this money that I wasn’t expecting passing through me.  And then I thought about what kind of responsibility it is to have all this power over my own reality.  So I stopped all that nonsense, or so I called it.

I guess maybe I wasn’t ready for such a strong transition, and it was scary in its own way.  There were other things that happened that confirmed that this life is indeed subjective.  They were not completely quantifiable or objectively measurable, so I can’t really show them to you, but there were definite shifts taking place that were good, but very unsettling.  It was like my whole reality was changing, while at the same time, you really couldn’t see it objectively, but only through what objectively minded people would call coincidence, but which I was too subjective to call a simple coincidence.  In the subjective world, there are no coincidences, and everything is a projection of the wider consciousness.  That consciousness which is you, as the whole dream world is you when you are dreaming.  Those other people and places in the dream don’t exist outside of yourself.  They are simply a projection of your consciousness, and that is how subjectively-minded people view the world.

Now, whether or not this is pure self-delusion or completely true, it doesn’t matter.  What matters are the results you get with the beliefs you use.  The more empowering your beliefs, the more empowering life you will have.  If your belief system tells you that this or that is not possible, then you have a limiting belief system.  With the subjective system, it is the same.  Your beliefs limit your experiences.  If you don’t believe something is possible,you won’t see it and if you ever do see this impossible thing, or someone who has seen it, you’ll come up with a rationalization to discount it, and that will only strengthen your current beliefs while remaining closed to new ones that could expand your experiences and empower your life.  Just the belief in life after death (or an afterlife for better choice of words) can open the door to a spiritual world you probably never experienced before.  I have had a couple of experiences dealing with the spiritual realm as a child that totally convinced me that there is an afterlife in some form or another.  I had deceased relatives communicating things through a Ouiji board that I had totally forgotten they did for us.  “Remember the soda and ice cream.”  I still remember it to this day.  My great aunt and uncle used to bring us soda and ice cream every week.

An objectively minded person would say that this happened because of a subconscious thought about that and our fingers moved to those letters because that was what we were thinking about below our level of thought, but all that does is close doors, rather than open them.  I had other experiences like that with the Ouiji board, but they weren’t as memorable, although I’m sure they were just as strange to an objectively-minded point of view.  It is the objective, civilized point of view that has discounted the spiritual world and the subjective world at that, because they believe that anything can be measured and will be the same for all observers, but that is kind of a religion in itself, isn’t it?  It is an act of blind faith, because everyone perceives different phenomena differently, at least sometimes.  And some people base their lives on things that other people don’t even think exist.  So how can an objective universe be 100% true and unquestioned for so long?

The only thing that can define the universe for you are your beliefs and your experiences.  Your beliefs supercede your experiences because you can’t have much experience without beliefs to put them into context.  So, choose your beliefs wisely, and try not to be too close-minded when it comes to exploring new beliefs.  The more empowering they are, the more accurate they are.  By accurate, I mean in harmony with what reality truly is.  If a belief helps you function better in reality, then it is more accurate than what beliefs you had before.  So, toy with your beliefs and stretch your reality because if you spend your whole life in one box, you’ll have lived a life of ignorance and missed opportunities.  Just give it a shot and see what happens.  You’ll be surprised.

Edit: Just to clarify, in case some of you were wondering, it’s not either or. Subjective reality contains objective reality within it, as subjective reality is all inclusive. If you believe in an objective universe, you are using the subjective model to create that objective world for yourself. Subjective reality is all-encompassing, so it is the most open belief system, as it contains all beliefs. So don’t think I’m hating on objective reality. I just feel its a bit incomplete. That’s all.

Inception Review:

What is the deal with all the buzz surrounding the movie Inception?  Was it really that great?  Why are people so enamored with it?  It kind of reminded me of The Matrix, only with dreams.  I didn’t like the base concept that you could actually implant a thought into someone’s mind if you deep enough into their dream worlds.  I can’t see how that would even be possible, not to mention that you can even invade people’s dreams.  Not only that, the whole notion that Leonardo DiCaprio‘s character was helping some cutthroat businessman gain a monopoly just so he could go home and see his children was not very enlightened in the least and seemed rather immoral.  What he was being “paid” to do was go into the head of the heir to another company that was a rival of this Japanese guy’s company and implant the idea to gut the company now that his father is dead.  That would leave Mr. Japanese with a complete monopoly or at least close to it.

There were a lot of stupid rules in this film.  They took some kind of sedative where now if they died in the dream, they would get stuck in what they called “limbo,” which is 4 levels down from what I understand.  Why?  I don’t know.  There was no reasoning given for this.  We all know that no matter how deep in levels we dream, if you die in a dream, you simply wake up, even if you’ve taken whatever sedative ingested.  Not only that, but they were in this guy’s dreams.  They were asleep as well, but they were invading his dreams somehow in order to persuade him into changing his mind about his father’s company.  There were tons of dream rules that had no basis in reality or even dream reality, but there were some that could  be possible in a dream.

One such example is that the deeper you go in levels (i.e. dreams within dreams), the more time passes in relation to real time.  I can see that as being possible.  The fact that you can manipulate dreams to fit what you want is also possible through lucid dreaming.  But it wasn’t even their dream to be shaping.  That is probably why they couldn’t change the physics when they went into that guy’s dream.  I just want to say that it was an interesting concept, but it left too many holes in it.  It was a decent movie, but it was way too convoluted and fast-paced to truly leave a mark on me.  People have said you have to see it multiple times to really get it, but it seems like I wouldn’t need to do that because a good portion of the movie just didn’t make sense to me.  I’ve been a longtime admirer of Christopher Nolan and his works, Memento and The Dark Knight being two of my favorite movies.  But this one just didn’t live up to the hype.

I didn’t even go see The Dark Knight when it came out, even though people were raving about it.  When I finally did see it, I was blown away.  In 2004, I saw Memento for the first time and was enamored and captivated by the unique presentation and story.  Even Nolan’s The Prestige was an excellent movie about 2 rival magicians in the 1800s.  He’s had blockbuster hits and the majority of his movies are well-received and unique, as was Inception.  But for some reason, it just didn’t seem as fantastic as some of his other movies.  I don’t know.  It just didn’t resonate with me in the same way as Memento did.  Memento had the subtlety and was very psychological in nature, as was The Dark Knight.  I didn’t find Leonardo DiCaprio’s acting to be in any way interesting enough to play the part of lead role in this movie.  To me, it was your typical summer action movie with a dream twist.  Maybe I just don’t like movies anymore.  I don’t know.  I’m just not into them, unless they are my type of movie.

It seems stupid to devote a whole blog post to a movie review because movies are nothing more than idle entertainment for the most part.  There have been some movies that have changed me, but not many.  For the most part, they are forgetful and just another way to waste away our lives.  Even when I see movies that are supposedly considered the best of all time, at the end I’m thinking, “”That was it?  That was it?”  Not to say that I don’t have my favorites.  But most movies just fall drastically short.  Here’s an incomplete list of some of my favorite movies and I’ll see if I can find a common theme:

  • Memento
  • The Dark Knight
  • Fight Club
  • American Beauty
  • Seven
  • The Usual Suspects
  • Office Space
  • Dumb and Dumber
  • The Prestige
  • Catch Me if You Can
  • Shawshank Redemption
  • American Psycho
  • Frequency
  • Departed
  • Mystic River
  • The Hangover
  • Identity
  • Runaway Jury
  • National Treasure

This is by no means a complete list.  But these are some of the movies that I enjoyed.  If that gives a clue to the kind of movies I enjoy, then so be it.  I just like movies that are either truly funny and witty, or movies that truly make me think.  Inception made me think, but think that the plot was ridiculous.  I’m sorry, but that’s just how it is.  I would rather watch a movie in which this reality is a dream then watch a movie where people have adventures in their dreams so that they can go see their kids in real life.  Come on, people.  And it never even tells us if the heir to that company guts it.  It doesn’t prove success or failure, except in the dream.  And how many people believe their dreams three levels deep?  And I’m willing to bet if the subconscious is down there, it is at least 100 levels deep, or more, so it just did not resonate with me.  Here I go again, critiquing the movie everyone seems to love.

In case you didn’t know, they are making The Hangover 2.  I don’t think it will be as good, but I think I’ll go and see that, if only because of my love for the comedian Zach Galifiniakis.  Funny, funny guy.  I’ve been watching him for years.  I guess what I learned from seeing this movie is that most movies that everyone likes I probably won’t like as much and the undiscovered gems that do poorly at the box office and later become cult classics are the movies I most enjoy.  There are exceptions to these rules, but for the most part, I’ll stick with the more interesting and obscure movies that are truly trying to make a profound statement, unless I get an intuitive ping to go see a blockbuster hit.  Anyway, have a nice day and I hope you enjoyed that movie more than I did.  Not to say that it was horrible, just that it wasn’t as captivating as I thought it was going to be.  And that’s okay.
