No I didn't mean your explanation I meant the storyline! So DeVoe's consciousness was destroyed in the chair? But as a backup there was a hologram to continue on with the plan? Last question, how did his consciousness get destroyed? I can't help it, reading your reply is making me smile over how ridiculous it all is. I feel like I should feel bad, but it's hilarious. Now I want a video of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 characters reacting to the last episode. I hope this doesn't ruin any of the cast or crew who work hard and are talented lose their careers. Or credibility.
WE ARE THE WORLD. WE ARE THE CHILDREN. It's so cathy, I'm listening to it now. Did you see the Infinity War cast sing to the tune of the song, but instead of children they said Avengers? It was great.
Summary of Till We Have Faces: "In this timeless tale of two mortal princesses- one beautiful and one unattractive- C.S. Lewis reworks the classical myth of Cupid and Psyche into an enduring piece of contemporary fiction. This is the story of Orual, Psyche's embittered and ugly older sister, who posessively and harmfully loves Psyche. Much to Orual's frustration, Psyche is loved by Cupid, the god of love himself, setting the troubled Orual on a path of moral development
Set against the backdrop of Glome, a barbaric, pre-Christian world, the struggles between sacred and profane love are illuminated as Orual learns that we cannot understand the intent of the gods "till we have faces" and sincerity in our souls and selves." This book should be considered a modern classic in my opinion. It's just so good. The character Orual is so flawed but she's human. It was a book that changed my life and came at just the right time. She's one of the greatest female characters of literature in my opinion. "Some criticism has been placed on this book concerning its depth. True, this is not light reading. This is not Eragon, after all. The story does have philosophical elements, as well as theological ones. The tale is one of contrasts –between classical and cultic paganism; between beauty and ugliness; between trust and jealousy. Also, the emotional current of the story is certainly passionate and the tone is dark. However, I do not see why any of these traits should prevent a reading. I read this book for the first time when I was twelve. The language may not be incredibly easy, but neither is it too dense nor too difficult to understand." It's so beautifully written. It's poetry. When reading it it was like a breathtakingly beautiful and detailed film being played before me. It's this beautiful journey of looking into a dark mirror and finally seeing ones true self. I didn't even make the connection until now (from what I remember) but the Bible verse 1 Corinthians 13:12 perfectly sums it up: "For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known." 1 Cor 13:12 is kinda talking about something else from what I remember but it could also be used for saying you're seeing yourself for the first time, and also seeing God. It's not a book that preaches at all or hits you over the head. I don't like that. It's just an amazing work of literature. I need to reread it. I hope that was a good explanation, it's hard to say how powerful it is. It was for me.
