This is a response to David’s post after seeing Angels and Demons and the recent 2012 movie. What do you reckon to this?
A moving epic drama – “Day of colour: the chosen ions”. One quark family’s struggle to free themselves from the bindings of the strong force. A whole race of people(particles) imprisoned for all eternity, flashbacks to the dawn of time when they were scooped up from their soup and dragged into drab, colourless prisons. The quarks’ hopeless attempts to get out only lead to their bringing more and more children quarks/antiquarks into this desperate world. (Many of these children, called the lost ones, make suicide pacts and evaporate from the world forever). Two communities, for the first time in billions of years, are thrust into the throws of sudden freedom – they are the chosen ions, something much bigger has selected them to experience life as it once was. But their freedom is shortlived. It ends tragically, as they are dragged from their loved ones in this beautiful noise before being, all too soon, pulled back into colourless prisons, never to see their loved ones again. Philosophical postulation about the senselessness of their life. Lives are lost, passion and tragedy and excitement, gore and action, explosions – the story has everything. I claim all rights to this movie 😉
