The Truman Show (movie)
on: 7:58 am Thursday, August 6, 2015
Recently, I watched a movie called "The Truman Show".  It is about a person who has lived his whole life inside an artificial world that was created inside of a huge dome.
Everything that he does is broadcast over the television, and Truman's life becomes an ongoing saga that is watched by millions around the planet every day.
Truman, like most of us, does not even question the reality of his life, and he thinks that everything that happens to him is real; but really it is at least partially scripted.
Eventually, Truman does begin to suspect that his world is not what he thught it was and looks for the truth.


This movie really makes a person consider the possibility that we might not be living in some random planet in a universe of other planets after all.
What if we are actually living in a giant dome (like people believed for thousands of years), and not on some tiny planet circling one of billions of stars ? ?

Oh, happyflowerlady

Sweet Mother of Pearl...that would explain why The Kardashians are on this planet! It's all just a giant experiment to see how long people will be mesmerized by their big fake behinds!!!!! The experiment has gone awry...there are way too many casualties under the spell of the K's. 

OK...experiment is over....PLEASE take them back to their alien planet!!! ;)

I LOVE the Truman show!!

My fiancÚ and I watched it and had a huge discussion about it after, about whether we'd leave the dome or not. The only reason Truman left the dome was because everything were fake, he knew it was not real. All of his relationships were lies, his life was boring and had no truth to it. There was nothing keeping him there, not even safety.

If I found out the dome was real and around me, I wouldn't leave. I have real relationships. I have things to do and look forward to and be excited about....and above all if I am safer in this dome than out there why the hell would I want to be out there?

Then again I wouldn't lock myself in a prison if there was a chance the guards could die and I'd starve...so there would be a level of trust there....but yeah!

This just made my paranoia work in overtime. I've always suspected that someone is watching me that's why I always put out a good front. LOL. Maybe we're all just science experiments but the real question is what is the experiment all about? What is life all about? Are we just for entertainment? O_O
