Every scene from both Kubrick's "Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb" and Monty Pythons "Life of Brian"

Nuff said :)
yes indeed.

Sellers "i'm a gardener" is great in all things.

George C Scott is amazing in this movie.
I agree, buy at the end of the day, he fails to go that final step into portraying Patton as the idiot that he was. Patton wanted to press on to Moscow. The world would have been a different place if he had done that, and either the official language of Europe would have been Russian, or Europe would have chosen to keep Russia its ally and the US would be an economic backwater.
Patton may have been an idiot, but truman as moreso (yes we were "War weary" - but the "reds" had bleed 25 million and were more weary.

we had the bomb - they did not - should have threatened them to "back off" over ceasing Eastern Europe. they would have backed off.

but we did not do shit, and allowed them to take half of europe 70 long years!

not good. and could have been prevented.

oh well.

Any of Kurosawa's samurai movies and Houston and Misumi's Shogun Assassin.

And if you love Kung Fu movies the comedy pastiche Kung Fu Hustle.

The Twilight Zone

The Obsolete Man

Great introduction by Rod Serling

They don’t write them like this anymore.

I wonder why.

“Any state, any entity, any ideology that fails to recognize the worth, the dignity, the rights of man, that state is obsolete.”
- Rod Serling.

What Vanilla sky tells us about reality.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qbui68J0Hl0


.


"You are the witness of the three bodies: the gross, the subtle, and the causal, and of the three times: past, present and future, and also this void. In the story of the tenth man, when each of them counted and thought they were only nine, each one forgetting to count himself, there is a stage when they think one is missing and do not know who it is; and that corresponds to the void. We are so accustomed to the notion that all that we see around us is permanent and that we are this body, that when all this ceases to exist we imagine and fear that we also have ceased to exist." -Ramana Maharshi


.

You are the dreamer, the dreaming, and the dream.

.

You do not die and go to heaven. You are born into heaven as the dream you have dreamt for yourself.

Would you like to start and monitor a thread about either Sri Ramana Maharshi or Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj?

I'll participate.

Yeah sure.

And do you mean what these guys taught, or about the guys personal life stories?

If you mean what they taught, yes, that would be fun...so do you mean about what they taught..or what?

We could include both of them since they were very similar if not identical in their approaches to reality...we could even include U.G.K and go all the way.. :wink:

.

It would be quite fun to have a really awakened thread dedicated to the master gurus for a change. I don't think it's been done before here at the PNF, not that I know of anyway, I could be wrong.

Just start it up, see what happens. Your thread, your call. I don’t see how it could be any more awakened than some of the things I’ve read here. My vote is for Sri Nisargadatta. He’s less ethereal, more suited to the times I think, given his humble life and circumstances.

UG Krishnamurti could start a riot, too distracting.

I'll post if something pops up, and I'm around, which given the circumstances will be less, which is good for more stewing time.
