Say goodbye to classical reality.


Definições de cinema moderno, por John Carpenter.

"Let's talk about our beliefs, and what we can learn about them. We believe nature is solid, and time a constant. Matter has substance, and time a direction. There is truth in flesh, hmmm, and the solid ground. The wind may be invisible, but it's real. Smoke, fire, water, light - they're different! Not as to stone or steel, but they're tangible. And we assume time is narrow, because... it is as a clock! One second is one second for everyone. Cause precedes effect; fruit rots, water flows downstream; we're born, we age, we die; the reverse, never happens... NONE OF THIS IS TRUE! Say goodbye to classical reality, because our logic collapses on the subatomic level into ghosts... and shadows."

"From Job's friends insisting that the good are rewarded and the wicked punished, to the scientists of the 1930's proving to their horror the theorem that not everything can be proved, we've sought to impose order on the universe. But we've discovered something very surprising... While order DOES exist in the universe, it is not at all... what we had in mind."
