QuotesEdit

"Belief, like fear or love, is a force to be understood as we understand the theory of relativity and principals of uncertainty. Phenomena that determine the course of our lives. "

“Belief, like fear or love, is a force to be understood as we understand the theory of relativity and principals of uncertainty. Phenomena that determine the course of our lives. Yesterday, my life was heading in one direction. Today, it is heading in another. Yesterday I believed I would never have done what I did today. These forces that often remake time and space- that can shape and alter who we imagined ourselves to be- begin long before we are born and continue long after we perish. Our lives and our choices like quantum trajectories are understood moment to moment. At each point of intersection- each encounter- suggests a new potential direction. Proposition- I have fallen in love with Louisa Rey. Is this possible? I just met her, and yet, I feel something important has happened to me.”

Film portrayalEdit
