Kindness In An Infinite Universe
Have you ever had one of those moments where you just stop and think about the world and your place in it? You look up at the night sky and realize just how vast and infinite it all is, and suddenly your problems and struggles seem so small and insignificant.
It can be a humbling, even overwhelming, experience. But what if, instead of feeling overwhelmed and insignificant, we used that realization to inspire us to be kinder and more loving towards one another?
Everything Everywhere All At Once makes you realise exactly that. EEAAO is a masterpiece that brings human connection into sci-fi. Heck, even rocks in this movie can make you sob. Here are my favorite bits of the movie.
You know, it’s easy to get caught up in our own little worlds and think that we have everything figured out. But the truth is, no one really knows what’s going on. I mean, sure, we have experts and scientists that can explain certain things, but when it comes down to it, the universe is vast and complex, and there’s still so much we don’t know. Every new discovery is a reminder that we are small and that we’re stupid.
And that can be a daunting realization, right? But instead of feeling overwhelmed by the unknown, let’s use that realization to inspire us to be kinder towards one another. We may not have all the answers, but we can still make a positive impact on the lives of those around us through kindness and understanding.
Think about it, we’re all just trying to navigate this thing called life, and we’re all just doing the best we can. So, when we see someone struggling, instead of passing judgement, let’s offer a helping hand. When we see someone who’s different from us, instead of being fearful, let’s try to understand. And when we see someone who’s hurting, instead of turning a blind eye, let’s offer a listening ear.
And gathering wisdom from the sweetheart that Waymond Wang is, I present to you, “When I choose to see the good side of things, I’m not being naive. It is strategic and necessary. It’s how I’ve learned to survive through everything.”
Let me explain, when we focus on the negative, we start to see everything through a negative lens and it can be hard to appreciate the simple things in life. But when we choose to see the good side of things, we’re able to find the silver lining in even the toughest of situations. And that’s important, because life can be tough, and if we don’t have a positive outlook, it can be easy to get bogged down by the challenges.
And it’s not just about being happy-go-lucky all the time, it’s about being strategic and looking for the positive aspects of a situation. When we do that, we’re able to find meaning and purpose in our struggles, and that’s what truly matters in the end. It’s how we survive through everything.
It’s easy to get caught up in regrets, what-ifs, and missed opportunities. We often spend a lot of time dwelling on the past and what could have been. But the truth is, what could have been literally doesn’t matter. All that matters is what you have right now, and what you make of it.
It’s important to remember that the past is gone, and there’s nothing we can do to change it. But what we can do is focus on the present and make the most of what we have. We can use our experiences, learn from our mistakes, and make the present and future better.
With that, I wrap up my rambling of why I loved this movie and why you should watch it too.
