"Unless you make yourself equal to God, you cannot understand God: for the like is not intelligible save to the like. Make yourself grow to a greatness beyond measure, by a bound free yourself from the body; raise yourself above all time, become Eternity; then you will understand God. Believe that nothing is impossible for you, think yourself immortal and capable of understanding all, all arts, all sciences, the nature of every living being. Mount higher than the highest height; descend lower than the lowest depth. Draw into yourself all sensations of everything created, fire and water, dry and moist, imagining that you are everywhere, on earth, in the sea, in the sky, that you are not yet born, in the maternal womb, adolescent, old, dead, beyond death. If you embrace in your thought all things at once, times, places, substances, qualities, quantities, you may understand God."

-Giordano Bruno

@enchanted  These are moving words but these words can also be a huge egoic trap.   This isn't the way to God.  The way to God is to completely remove the self - to realize that the self was but an illusion.   The self cannot know or understand God because the self never was.  Only the Self exists.

The quote says "Free yourself from the body"....."become eternity"....."you are everywhere"...that's sounds exactly what Leo says. 

If Bruno's quote is an ego trap than so are Leo's.

It's the most strange and unexplainable movie I watched as a kid. It haunted me for a while. Since then, I have wanted to find that movie.

I understand now why I loved the movie Interstellar.

It's the most strange and unexplainable movie I watched as a kid. It haunted me for a while. Since then, I have wanted to find that movie.

I understand now why I loved the movie Interstellar.

Interestingly the actor r Matthew David McConaughey that is the protagonist in Interstelar is a scientist in Contact the very one who gave a compass to Dr. Eleanor Arroway  and she give back saying that could save his life one day. And in Interstelar we have him and the Broken watch that is crucial to send the message inside de blackhole singularity to his child. 

In Contact she goes to a dangerous uncertaing trip and end up in a holographic beach where she meet her father who actually is an Alien that is showing up like that to not scare her. In Interstellar He also get inside of a place that was suppose to kill him (the blackhole) but actually is a place here he can conect with different time spaces. I feel there is a good possibility that the Director of Interstellar made some conections on purpouse since both movies deal with the same Ideia of the Mistery of Time, Space and Other Inteligent beings out there. And is nice to rememeber that in Interstelar the "Beings" who opened the blackhole were future humans themselfs. 

I think  watching both movies in a row would be interesting and taking notes of the interconections.

This post took an interesting direction. 

However, Bruno is saying the same thing as Leo, but over 500 years ago. And same thing Jesus, Mohamad, and the Buddha said. 

All disagreement is just due to misinterpretation.
