Find a complete stranger.
Reveal to each other intimate details about your lives for half an hour.
Then, stare deeply into each other’s eyes without talking for four minutes.
New York psychologist, Professor Arthur Aron, has been studying why people fall in love.
He asked his subjects to carry out the above 3 steps and found that many of his couples felt deeply attracted after the 34 minute experiment. Two of his subjects later got married.
Well. That’s odd to think about.
“Two subjects later got married”?
You know, if you get enough people and pair them up with complete strangers, it doesn’t really matter what activity you have them doing - some will feel deeply attracted to each other and it is not improbable that some will get married.
BECAUSE EVERY COUPLE STARTED OUT AS STRANGERS.
Guns don’t kill people…
He said Star Trek is too “philosophical”? Screw that noise.
I don’t know when this interview happened but I AM SAD AND ANGRY NOW
The philosophies in Star Trek are kinda part of the actual setting. If you don’t get that, why are you allowed to make Star Trek movies.
Sigh. The whole point of Star Trek is that it’s philosophical. If you don’t want philosophical Science Fiction, there’s plenty of that for you to enjoy, but Star Trek is philosophical. Philosophy is part of Star Trek’s DNA, and if you’re given the captain’s chair, you’d better damn well respect that.
Yeah, but the philosophy of Star Trek sucks. I only watched a few episodes, but the “moral of the story” ALWAYS annoyed me. And I didn’t like the characters or storylines either.
But that aside, you’re right - if you don’t like Star Trek, why make a Star Trek movie? That’s just idiotic.
Quote with 1 note
You must understand that our civilization is so vast that we cannot have our minorities upset and stirred. Ask yourself, What do we want in this country, above all? People want to be happy, isn’t that right? Haven’t you heard it all your life? I want to be happy, people say. Well, aren’t they? Don’t we keep them moving, don’t we give them fun? That’s all we live for, isn’t it? For pleasure, for titillation? And you must admit our culture provides plenty of these.
