the movie was amazing. fucking amazing.

so the movie talks about dreams. then dreams within a dream. then dreams within a dream within a dream. intense. 

two things:
1) i love joseph gordon levitt.
2) i love ellen page.

it questions what reality is. the film revolves around going into a dream with your conscious to live a life that you wouldn't be able to live in "reality". the twists to the story make the long film a true blockbuster, and the ending leaves the audience hanging on the question "what is reality?"

so what is it? my over-studious english tutor would always question me what reality is, and how do you know what you're living is reality. after all, the things you see are just the energy reflected off the object. how do we know what we are living in is reality? 

there have been tons of theories suggested by lots of philosophers such as existentialism, humanism, and relativism, but the one i agree with is humanism. it's the belief that humans on our own can act morally without a god, and that all humans are intrinsically good. it doesn't matter if we were raised without parents or in a violent family; that's no excuse to go around killing people. humanism explains the consequential difference of your actions- and with no belief in afterlife, it gives people the right to live however they want without worrying about any consequences.

  1. nice blog (:

    and inception. i mean hello, effing dicaprio. that boy used to be so damn hot.

  2. humanism is the literary and linguistic movement to revive old ideals and literature, and the glorification of man. its not the belief that people are intrinsically good, its rather that people have the ability to do anything, and man is boundless.

  3. Humanism is a progressive philosophy of life that, without theism and other supernatural beliefs, affirms our ability and responsibility to lead ethical lives of personal fulfillment that aspire to the greater good of humanity.

    that's right bitch.
