Another thing I love to watch is the “murmurations” of some birds, like starlings. It is so amazing how thousands of birds can be so closely united in purpose and direction. Science is still puzzling about just how they can accomplish such a feat, and it has been dubbed as having something to do with a “swarm-mentality”, where one bird affects seven surrounding birds by how it moves, and each other bird does the same, so with each bird affecting seven birds around it, the entire ‘swarm’ becomes balanced “as one unit” in their behaviors. Their movements are so precise, so rapid, so fluid, and it is truly a fantastic sight to behold, and a perfect example of harmony and synergy. I have seen the movie thrice so far, when I reminisce about the movie, I could only stand astonished and spellbound by the amount of science and creativity injected into it. For me the entire run time was a pack of wonderful moments. How ever we do have our own favorite moments, some scenes which gave us a sudden thrill, a mind numbing feeling. You do not even think what had happened, but pause your mind and stumble with awe. The huge ass water waves, they were growing and growing and growing. It makes you wonder. The beauty is, at that moment when the scene plays you don’t really give a shit about gravitational fields, possibilities of huge crest and troughs. You just sit back and bite your nails while TARS lifts Brand and rolls back to ranger. When Cooper comes back to Endurance and learns that 23 years have passed, he starts playing the messages from his family. Empathetic connection of a loving father and his children, though separated by million miles. So far, yet so near. He trembles and cries when she tells him that they share the same age now.
We’ve always defined ourselves by the ability to overcome the impossible. And we count these moments. These moments when we dare to aim higher, to break barriers, to reach for the stars, to make the unknown known. We count these moments as our proudest achievements. But we lost all that. Or perhaps we’ve just forgotten that we are still pioneers. And we’ve barely begun. And that our greatest accomplishments cannot be behind us, because our destiny lies above us. Just read this once, think about “US”, we are earthlings, look at what we have ventured into. Breaking barriers, yes we are. I’m proud to say that i’m an earthling who could witness, the beauty of inventions, pain curing discoveries, destroying communication blocks, spreading love. When Cooper is thrown off the shuttle once he is sucked into the gravitational field, his voice trembles when he falls in to the unknown, when I was a kid i used to talk through the table fan to scare my sister. It was very similar to that, the voice I mean. The most favorite of all, Cooper inside the tesseract, when he looks at his daughter, imagine!!! Your long missed daughter, who thinks you left her to die from starvation and suffocation, million miles away from you is now separated just by a fucking book shelf, let that sink in. Then the moment of sanity when he realizes that he could make Murph understand that he was her ghost all this time.
