Want to take a journey into my psyche? Alright – lets go. I’ve always liked “Minority Report” very much, and one of the things that I’ve bonded with in the film is the scenes where Tom Cruise is organizing people’s premonitions. Not only is this a wonderful scene and Spielberg’s best film since “Schindler’s List”, but whenever someone asks me how my mind works, I always reference “Minority Report”.
On average I would say that I have four to seven thoughts that are running through my head at the same moment. They’re either memories, thoughts or other randoms enigmas that travel through my brain. It’s almost as if all these thoughts are spinning on a drum, and I can see all of them at once, sometimes I slow certain thoughts/memories down while others continue to spin.
I organize them, the best I can. Sometimes I’m so deep in thought it overlaps what I am currently doing. It’s not that I’m ADD or have a hard time focusing on things – that’s not it at all. Someone once told me they can see beyond my eyes, and they can see a cloud of thoughts, like a storm brewing behind my eyes. They are correct, and they are the only person that’s ever noticed that.
Anyway, this is yet another example how film has a direct correlation to my life.
