    JMI, are you going surrealistic on me?

    If you have not seen this movie, I am sure you would enjoy it:

    Le charme discret de la bourgeoisie

    Let's try to explain why (maybe) we might not be in a world thinking another world thinking another... let's see if I can persuade.

    ...let's talk of Matrix, then. Everyone saw it, no? Well, that film as a substantial metaphysical layer, more thicker that it might seem at first (sometime hollywood can mix special effect and intelligent essays, impressive...).

    Ask yourself: you are in an ocean river, and you see an ant walking the sand. If you look the sand more closely, you see the ant is crafting the lines of Washington's portrait. Is it *A* Washington's portrait, or just casual lines?
    The answer is not trivial for the following reason: think you are near the top of a hill, and you see a single Tree on top. Yeah, you can see the leaves, the dimmed veins of the wood. Is it *A* Tree?
    The question, now, isn't so trivial.
    Where is the difference? At sight, you might say: the ant is not REFERRING to the Washington's portrait, but I *AM* referring to the Tree.
    Wow (...WoW).
    ...but...

    What does this has to do with being in a world thinking another world -or not?
    Matrix's people in the matrix were really talking i.e. of trees or not? How could they distinguish if they were real trees or just simply mental images?
    Said simple, how could they know if they were brains in a vat with a projected mental image or just real people looking a tree on top of a hill?

    soooo....

    Naides:

    Is it true that only the French could make a movie whose "plot" is described as:

    "A surreal, virtually plotless series of dreams centered around six middle-class people and their consistently interrupted attempts to have a meal together"

    "The film satirizes french bourgeoisie but as I said it is not really an acid satire but a surreal comedy/drama that doesn't really have to make sense. Dream in dream sequences are often used to express the character's unrests and troubles. The movie is somehow similar to The Exterminating Angel where the characters, after they eat cannot leave the room even though there is nothing stopping them. Here, different situations interrupt the characters from eating. These situations are absurd and illogic, just like the ones in The Exterminating Angel."


    But I'm afraid I missed that one though. I was in Viet Nam at the time.

    Hey SiGiNT! I KNOW that app! I was just having a look at it myself.

    There is a function in there that checks the window titles, and if it has "keygen" in it, it exits the program.

    Very nice protection job on it.

    Howdy,

    Is this metaphysics or really philosophy?

    One can always make their own observations when given the context in which it MAY be intended.

    How do you decide it is an ant on the sand?
    How do you decide it is a tree on top of the hill?

    If you were to make these decisions without any "outside" interference,
    then the answer has absolutly no meaning to anyone but you.

    "soylent green", was it really about the obvious or was it about what could be?

    Your perception of what you see and think is only that, a perception.
    You can change it however you like. It is within your mind to make that choice.

    Maybe the same app. but I got this response to a small patch modifying 4 bytes - it has a loop that checks every every frickin line in the compilation - pesky problem - but relatively easy to defeat - just move the value from the comparison register to the compared register.

    Hey Woodmann - quoting from a popular commercial - "do I have a response to that??" sure I have a response - WHAT?????"

    Bo˝uel is actually portuguese. :P
    If you want something really surreal, try his co-production with Salvador Dali (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0020530/). Now THAT'S weird shit.

    According to IMdb: Luis Bu˝uel was born 22 February 1900, Calanda, Teruel, Aragˇn, Spain!

    Soylent Green was about celebrity chefs run amok.

    They were just "kickin' it up a notch" too far.

    Absolutely!!!!

    In one scene I'm one of the shuffling masses, actually about 30-40 of us in a continuous loop, in the hallway when Robert DuValle and Donald Pleasance break into the corridor - a lot of the movie was shot in a power station in Oakland Ca. - didn't pay much but the catered lunches were outstanding.
