human mission

extant When I was watching first series I seemed to be bored and even disappointed – the action was a bit slow and too family. But then next ones made me addicted to the story of dr Molly Woods, an astronaut (yes, when I was a child I dreamed of being a cosmonaut) and her family in the far far future.

The plot is really involving and unpredictable. I enjoy the play of Hale Berry and the development of her character. I still do not know how it is going to finish, but I like the inventions of the future like manicure-machine, almost human robots, printers of clothes.

I must say, any film whether it is about future or present or past is about relations and inner appeals of each human being. Who we are, what is important in our lives, can family fulfill the constant inner drive to the unknown? These are the questions I read in this film.

Besides those interfaces, the cloud services, the bio-molecular topics follow me from series to series, I get quite familiar with them and like them.

December in Carpatia is full of emotions, insights and talks. Why those “humanics” are sometimes more human and creative than us, human beings? Well, I suspect, I know why. Human beings are very complex beings. Our Ego can kill all the best in us – our creativity, our honesty, our relations with our higher nature. We become concentrated on the questions of SURVIVAL. But this is another story.

Last months of the year tend to be sad, dark, sleepy and least inspiring. Well, if you live in some megalopolis with electric lights, drive a car from home to work, you might not feel it that much. Besides Christmas marketing is always ready to entertain your eyes, ears and wallet : ) But when you live in the heart of Carpatia, where you won’t find a hint of city lights, christmas ads – just severe winds, super dark darkness, almost soundless mountains, pines and fir trees, wet snow and ice.

But guys, if you have water, Internet, electricity and a couple of good films – you will not only survive, you can decide what waves you attract into your life. You can surround yourself with scenes from hi-tech future, with funny talks of the detectives and their ALMOST HUMAN helpers of the future.

I’m not crazy neither about police stories, nor about robots, but this serial is about human relations, even when the android has to show you what it is. I enjoy every single episode, dialogs, their interfaces of the future, their beautiful city, their gadgets and their frankness.

There is a huge gap between that reality and my reality. Their reality is so sterile and synthetic. My reality is very organic and on the edge of survival. At the edge of an animal survival.

No machine takes care of your emotions or depression, nobody measures your blood pressure, there is no single camera in the area of 50 km, nobody heats your dwelling for you, nobody controls your activity, your money flows or lack of them : )

It’s a good occasion to think of limits of our freedom, how much of it we need and how much we can sacrifice for this ephemeral feeling of safety. I like my soundless freedom sometimes. Although I’m really enjoying the fantastic future with my almost human characters. I highly recommend it! Especially if you live far from civilization. It’s a kind of hi-tech vitamin for us. Take care and be patient with yourselves these short days.
