Has anyone here seen the movie Primer? It was released in 2004 and is one of the movies I came across while looking for clips that have a time-travel  type of theme. It is a very geeky kind of story with some guys trying to come up with some revolutionary tech to change the world and get rich, but "accidentally" find out that they are able to travel back either a few hours or days in the past. How the machine works and the plot line are more complicated than I can easily explain on an OP but it is one of those kind of movies you'll want to watch several times (if your like me) so that you can understand how EVERYTHING happens and how what is the cause of all the strangeness that happens in the end. After watching it a couple times my mind was kind of blown more or less by just the concept of it.

If anyone wants a hint, like most movies about time/dimensional travel everything is more or less 'ok' until the rules that the people doing time travel get broken a few too many times and/or someone gets obsessed with fixing things that perhaps shouldn't be fixed.   gaah.gif

Yeah yeah yeah fix the past. Tell it to the one bringing back the dead for round 57.

It's a snake eating it's own tail. It's programming. My assumption is they're trying to get you to create characters (alters) for their shït show based on what you do "in time" because it's entertaining for them. (?)

I don't really know. You don't fix nothing here it's about harvesting your energy. But...if you do nothing you will fall. At the point you have the spirit and know it's part of the hive...you probably should stick to familiar territory because even if you go someplace new it's just a skin on the programming + a lot of gatekeeping. I went someplace different yesterday and same shït was going on even though I've never been there...also it felt like I had already been there (felt too familiar).

Also I should mention in a couple weeks I should have enough slices of clips to make a couple rough drafts of the AMV/Music videos I'm working on to have something to show people in this forum. Right now I'm mostly aiming for a proof of concept that something too polished that could take too much time. I just hope it is something that isn't too "eh..." or too weird that people can't understand it. But I guess that is the way it is with any form of art, that is if what I'm doing can be thought of as a form of art.

I think the reason they make the whole time travel thing seem so dark is that although crazy things could be done with such technology, we have no idea of what the negative consequences of messing with such power would be like. I mean it is really just a rehash of the Mary Shelley's old Frankenstein monster where you have a mad/desperate scientist that want to change the world but can only do so by dabbling in the dark and forbidden art of 'black magic'; which just is an untested technology in the modern era. In the end the scientist for some reason breaks their own rules which they have set forth to keep the monster/ machine/ technology contained and it either kills or ruins the scientist life in some way. It is also the same for all crime fight shows, all the detectives/cops/agents in some way either try to act like Sherlock Holmes and/or have some quirk/giftedness/personality disorder that allows them to be super aware of things in order to make them more aware of things at the crime scene than others. Some of the shows that use this template are House, Monk, Scorpion, Pysch, Murder She wrote, the Hardy Boys,etc, etc. And then there are the templates for vampires and pitting a group of people against each other. Why write something new if you can just keep redressing the same old story and rehash it if the public is always willing to buy it over and over again? If the public is stupid enough to buy a pet rock for whatever reason, capitalism will find a persona and a way for someone to sell them such a novelty.

It is pretty basic but it is still better than the plots of most movies coming out today and the template is NOWHERE as nearly as rehashed as many other templates that Hollywood uses for other shows and movies.

You mean like the Flash?

I saw Primer a long time ago.

I am not your rolling wheels, I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon, I am the night
The night
