Is Based on the short story by Lewis Padgett. It is a story about two children who find this strange box on the beach and with it begins the strange journey of discovery.
I really enjoyed this show even though it was geared for the younger set. It was one I might of watched with my Grand children. I thought last night after working quite late on the house, I needed a little R&R. My wife has gone to look after her father, and the trailer suddenly seems larger then usual without my better half. 😦
Anyway there are some things within this show, even though it is fictional, are the basis of thoughts I have had about Mandalas for a lot of years now. Why I show the picture I do, from amongst the selection of other pictures you can find here of the Last Mimzy.
Another surprise is to find Brian Greene playing a role in this movie as well.
Brian Greene-Columbia physicist Brian Greene inhabits a multiple-perspective landscape modeled after M.C. Escher’s artwork in a scene from “The Elegant Universe,” a public-TV documentary based on Greene’s book.
Amazing that something from the future can been heralded in this time. You’d almost think that information from the future was somehow being conserved and making it’s way into the minds of current researchers?
Finally, we also hope that this series furthers the discussion regarding the nature and function of ‘the mandala’. In the spiritual traditions from which Jung borrowed the term, it is not the SYMMETRY of mandalas that is all-important, as Jung later led us to believe. It is their capacity to reveal the asymmetry that resides at the very heart of symmetry. By offering a new view about how consciousness itself is structured – in a fundamentally paradoxical fashion – and how these structurings are reflected in principles according to which the mandala is organized, we are able in this series to show how personality itself may be thought of as having an essentially ‘liminocentric’ design.
