It's juxtaposition of what is real or ethereal has always had me fascinated.<br /> I'm now 21 and this last year has been one of intrigue and discovery, questioning and knowledge.<br /> I saw Contact again last night and it spoke to me in very different ways to how it did as a child or even a headstrong teenager.<br /> <br /> The late, great Carl Sagan as we all know was a brilliant mind and a devoted free-thinker, but I think it interesting that the emphasis on this scene during the trial was so other-worldly and faith based. Now that isn't to say it's indicative of religion - Palmer Joss the religious love interest of the good doctor is referenced throughout the film and strongly in the trial, but depending on one's framework her monologue can take on different views and sentiments; this was clearly Sagan’s objective<br /> <br /> Dr Arroway agrees that were she in the place of the jury she too would be sceptical as there is no proof of any time travelling event. The only knowledge she has (apart from the hushed 18 hours of static recorded from her headset) is that it DID happen.<br /> <br /> My point to this is that, as was well written in this article in Scientific American,<br /> '’m a skeptic not because I do not want to believe but because I want to know - 'What skepticism Reveals about Science'<br /> <a href="http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=what-skepticism-reveals">http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=what-skepticism-reveals</a><br /> <br /> I think many of you would agree with me in that I miss those childhood days of ghost stories and (if you were raised in a religious environment) that feeling of being looked after by something bigger than yourself.<br /> But honestly I would never go back to those daydream days. In place of religious doctrine and godliness I have the awe that the WORLD inspires in me. I have a deeper understanding of the universe’s chemistry and physical processes that allow even planetary bodies to move in synch with one another. Most importantly I have the motivation to do something purposeful with my life given that, in fact, there is no afterlife and this is the one shot I've got.<br /> <br /> Peace to you all and keep on thinking.
