I watch a lot of TV shows and Films. I am neither proud nor ashamed of it. It’s neither a good activity nor a bad activity, it’s just an activity which I do.
Some people view this activity as good and others view it as bad and some are neutral about it.
I also read a lot. I did a bit too much of that a few weeks ago and ended up straining my eyes. I walked around for the rest of the day with triple vision which was disturbing until I decided to stop fretting about it and explore the experience instead – after all I do have an addiction to viewing things, the world, people, from different perspectives, and this was definitely that.
And I think a lot. Thinking is probably my all time favourite activity. Do I think too much? Maybe, but there are different types of thinking…

… and I find watching TV shows and Films really useful when it comes to Abstract Thinking (see excerpt above for a quick explanation of that type of thinking).
I love to connect dots. The pictures I make from the dots I connect will most likely look like weird doodles to others, but I’m not doing it for others, I’m doing it for myself. There is something intensely internally exciting and energising about doing it which far outweighs the heavy ugh momentarily experienced when someone else who (only sees the surface of you) tells you that what you’re doing is stupid, a waste of time and effort, useless, etc (I’ve done this to others when I’ve been their someone else who… yeargh! Karma!).
Every now and then I see something which makes me want to rush out and tell everyone else to watch it. Look, look, LOOK! This is amazing!!!
The film – The Laws of Thermodynamics (Las Leyes de la Termodinamica) – is one of those.
It’s written and directed by Mateo Gil, who also wrote Open Your Eyes (Abres Los Ojos).
It’s not a science documentary, so don’t expect the science to be exact or applied correctly, it’s more of a trip into someone else’s abstract thinking where they’re connecting dots for themselves and thrilling energetically in the design which appears before them. It might look like weird doodles to you, or might be part of your connect the dots image.
If you’re interested in psychology, philosophy, metaphysics… and you’re not too academic about those subjects… there’s all of that in there too.
There a beautiful rendition of the concept of Karma where we’re shown two timelines occurring simultaneously which are almost identical, and one character is having done to them what they did to someone else – so they’re getting to experience the other side of the equation, thus their karma is being balanced, and their understanding is being deepened (if they’re open to it, and can get passed their biases and blindspots).
If you’re into astrology, this is a great film to watch right now as, imo, it’s a perfect example of the transits in play at the moment.

It’s a very transiting Uranus/Mars/Mercury/Neptune acting and reacting together and to each other film.
These particular transits are hitting placements in my natal chart which happen to be the same planets in aspect to each other (except for Neptune), albeit differently arranged. Don’t worry I’m not going to describe what’s happening in my natal chart with those transits as due to rereading old posts I’ve written where I did that it made me realise it sounds like gobbledygook (even I had no idea what the eff I was on about).
What I will say is that if you have Uranus/Mars/Mercury in aspect natally (like I do), then you’ll most likely either be a freak or feel like you’re a freak or both. And when you meet anyone else who says – I’m a freak – you’ll get really excited… Huzza!!… and then disappointment will usually (although not always) follow because that other person is what you would consider a normal with normative views (which isn’t a bad state of being, it just won’t click easily with a freak state of being).
Their – I’m a freak – only works within the context of their version of reality, and not in yours. It’s fascinating to observe how many normals think they’re freaks…
Thank goodness you waited before sharing your freak with them, right! Right? You did wait, didn’t you?
They ran away screaming, didn’t they?
Don’t worry, they’ll be fine… and you’ll be fine too.
The Laws of Thermodynamics (the film) confirms it, and touches upon that aspect in relationships… sometimes normal people enter into a relationship with a freak because they want to expand their version of reality beyond its confines, and sometimes a freak enters into a relationship with a normal because normal just seems so peaceful (even when your mental calculations reveal to you that it’s not that at all). Normal is kind of freakish to a freak.
When Uranus combines with Mars and Mercury by transit… even if you’re a normal, your thinking goes a tad haywire but it feels awesome once you go with it rather than trying to fight it.
It makes you sound insane inside and out… sometimes we all need a bit of…

To free us, release us, relieve the pressure, show us that our dead end isn’t as dead and as much of an end as it seemed. There’s a door in that wall, maybe only you can see it and open it – Will you keep seeing it, open it and go through or…?
