OvomorphMember0 XPJul-16-2012 7:39 AMHave any of you seen the movie Altered States starring William Hurt and directed by Kurt Russell It was based on a book by Chayefsky and based on real research around isolation tanks its from the 1980's... I loved it although it is quite dated now :) the interesting concept from this movie that relates to Prometheus is about other states of consciousness- and the possibility of ancient memories I thought there could be ideas for when people go into the cyro-pods and references to dreaming with David observing Shaw and apparantly communicating with Weyland

OvomorphMember0 XPJul-16-2012 8:19 AMahhh ALTERED STATES. One of my fave movies of all time [img]http://iamyouasheisme.files.wordpress.com/2011/12/altered-states.jpg[/img] But hardly anything you can pinpoint has having to do with Prometheus. Even the Religious thing has diferent aproaches to it [Prometheus is about aliens, Altered States is about childhood frustration due to daddy not being religious and drugs] Dated? more or less, still has great Fxs on it.

OvomorphMember0 XPJul-16-2012 8:29 AMI love it too :) and yes the themes are different I guess I was thinking about experimental flotation tanks and that is about consciousness/dreaming and ideas shared around here have referred to dreaming and consciousness in humans/AI

Uncertainty is the only certainty there is, and knowing how to live with insecurity is the only security.
