The word 'Resonate' has been popping up a lot in my research lately... With all it's uses and implications.
When I (seldom) watch a movie or (frequently) read a book, I take what 'resonates' with me. Facts usually are anything but, most often they can't stand on their own because they are standing so slanted to one direction or the other.
Distractions and slight of hand... smoke and mirrors... intentional or not... most of what is put out for us to see or to read just distracts us from thinking about what really matters... separating us, heads or tails, it's all part of the same coin... the bigger picture.
What is going on around here... socio-politically speaking? Whatever it is... it is an... unrest we are feeling. That something is, not necessarily *wrong*... but, somehow, not quite right.
It's a path Ryan... this movie is the first of many you will see. Gauge them with your internal BS meter... does it resonate? Bits and pieces seem to fit together... so dig into it... keep following the threads that lead you down your path. It's not so very important whether or not the facts contain any relevant truth, as something, in that movie struck a chord... resonated... see where that takes you.
Research. It would be pure laziness to take anything ANYONE says as *fact* without researching it. There are experts out there who are willing to talk about their favorite subjects for free.

I was passing through Lansing MI and had to stop at the college. One of the guys who dreamt up the Hadron Collider was standing right in front of me. I didn't know much about it... seriously, I was ignorant. (Ignorance is curable)
I asked a question, he started talking. I interrupted him to go get my notebook, not quite prepared... but WOW, an interesting conversation!
I am not so much interested in slamming hadrons into each other... as I am about the workings of the universe... or the *multiverse* as it is beginning to be called. I follow the threads that lead me on my path. I check everything out, pick up what I need, what resonates... I chuck out the rest, and walk on.
I doubt there is a book (or movie) in existence that is 100% acurate. (No offence, but the bible included) erroneous facts do not disprove the entire book. Had we tossed out everything Newton, Einstein or Plato said because they were wrong about a few of the details, I shudder to think where civilization would be.
What I mean is, 'when the student is ready, the teacher arrives'.
Take what you can,
And try to find like-minded people, open minded people to discuss it with.
