"When I was a kid, it seemed like they made something new everyday. Some, gadget or idea, like every day, was Christmas."
There is not an artistic expression that isn't a reflection of our subconscious impulses and elements. Gaining deeper insight into yours will give you the perspective to grasp others'.
SPOILER ALERT: Interstellar is a battle between the open-minded and the practical, and the gravity of the insecurities within.
"We've always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements... And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us."
If you're looking for a shot-by-shot superficial breakdown of the entertainment facets, there's everywhere else for that. The following is a reflection of subconscious insight, which is the other other half the equation Dr. Brand was missing to finish their ascension. A re-imagining and reevaluation of the physics of time and space, with quantum insight from the "other side."
That's right. Except the Blackhole is your subconscious, and crossing the horizon is peering into your own. You can't do it with a spaceship or a government program, you have to create your own system to reach the deepest core impulses and elements within your imagination.
The film begins immediately with the main premise: Practical Precedent vs Open-Minded Leaps of Impulses. The push and pull between both and which impulse will save us from extinction.
The script explains the variable as 'love,' but that is where the misinterpretation of our impulses prevents us from a deeper understanding of our nature, within nature itself. Love is an impulse, what each person experiences and interprets that as and grounds it to, is the principal core figure.
“I’m not afraid of death. I’m an old physicist. I’m afraid of time.”
Love/Life stems from a positive objective impulse, but the nature of our environment and the development of our mindsets recognize these as subjective elements. They ground our imagination in subjective applications, not objective reevaluations of those subjective suppositions.
Want more proof? The earth's climate is drying out, which is a metaphorical reflection of each individual's imagination. Like in the film, we ground our headspace to help us adapt to an ever-increasing shallow materialistic society void of objective imaginative pursuits, thoughts, theories and exploration. A world focused on consumption and social structure, rather than reevaluating every element that has and will continue to form the complexes and constraints within our evolutionary nature.
Much is made about how differently Cooper treats his son and his daughter. His son is the practical grounded closed-mind, his daughter is the polar opposite. The first time you meet the siblings, the brother is discouraging and insulting Murph for trying to drive stick and having fun. He recognizes his insecurity is greater than hers, so he acts to diminish hers. Her sense of wonder, her sense of security, trying to ground her positive objective impulses because he lacks the ability to create them at the same level that their father relates to.
"Murphy’s Law doesn’t mean that something bad will happen. It means that whatever can happen will happen."
When we first meet Cooper, he is a pilot for NASA. He thrives on pushing the boundaries and is excited by exploring the horizons of unseen potential. For Coop, it's not about the technology. It's about the ingenuity and creativity that leads to leaps in what being alive means, and what that could mean for the future generations who deserve better.
MORE TO COME.
