Revelations Theatre 3000
FIGHTING ABSURDITY WITH ABSURDITY
There you have it: Revelations. I can tell you now Revelations hammered the last nail into the coffin of my faith.|
I'll begin my conclusion with this... very deep thought.
When discussing Star Wars between friends and relatives, our arguments would ultimately hone in on the final Death Star of "Return of the Jedi." The problem was with the main reactor core.
At the end, an entire fleet of rebel ships fly into an opening of the Death Star. Through a winding tunnel of pipes and beams, they soar right to the station's center: it's vulnerable main reactor. Shooting it down, they manage to destroy the whole Death Star.
Yes, my friends and relatives have discussed Star Wars to this level. With the saga's popularity, I'm pretty sure many of you have as well.
Point is, one of my friends found this logical problem. If shooting the core could destroy the whole station, why leave an opening wide enough for a fleet to enter?
My mother's answer was this. They were still building the Death Star. So, all the defenses and barriers weren't installed yet.
Hearing that, I realized something.
With that I'll end how I began.
When faced with absolute fiction, all arguments become valid. Points and counter-points become weighed on creativity rather than logic.|
Revelations is a dream written out. Each and every mistake can be justified solely by how much you expand the purpose and method behind it. Therefore anyone can debunk my criticisms. In certain cases, it would take a healthy stretch of the imagination to do so. But, hey, the more convoluted the writing is, the more profound. Right?
I'll end on symbols...
A vision, no matter how it materializes, is a dream. Dreams are, as with symbols and art, subjective by nature. Anything subjective has as many meanings as there are people. Which would be about six billion.
If Revelations is a vision, it is a dream. If it is a dream, it is subjective. If it is subjective, it has six billion interpretations. Does this not ultimately make it meaningless?
There's a verse in the Bible - Matthew 24:36. You no doubt have heard versions of this before. Still, it's worth noting here. And it's Jesus saying this. So don't knock it.
"No one knows the day or the hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows."
Let me expand on this for Revelations.
