For a moment, I was considering placing this in the 'book review' area but, since it's a movie and not a book. *shrugs*

And for another, this is NOT a review of the movie. Yes, I liked it and saw it in 3-D. End of review aspect.

The reason why I wanted to speak on the movie is how it relates to the Force and 'reality as we see it'.
It was spot on fantastic, imo. The Ancient One 'introduces' Dr. Strange to 'opening his eyes to a larger reality' and all she monologues -- could just as easily be someone speaking about the Force.

I am hoping I can find transcripts of the movie dialogue so I can cut and paste it here in the near future.

You beat me to it! I was going to comment on some of the amazing metaphysical and Jedi like conversations that are had in that movie. I am going to have to see it again to get them all, I was partially distracted by Benedict Cumberbatch :blush: partially by his American accent (ick) and partially distracted by the waves of grief washing over me as I thought about my friend who recently passed and how much she would have loved the movie.

I love the idea that there is more to this world than what we can see. That you have to surrender to fully appreciate it (says the girl who must control everything :whistle: ) and the discussion on life/death.

I look forward to seeing it. I am glad that "magic" is in the MCU! Just wait till Dr Fate comes to DC. That will enhance people's awareness to higher or greater consciousness. There is something greater out there.

We are the Force.

I haven't seen it yet, we don't have a babysitter at this point. But, since this is focused on how it relates to the Jedi path I moved it into another area. :-)

I'm a huge fan of using different approaches to opening people up to a larger world. Hopefully this movie assists in this manner.

I am so glad that this movie is doing well. raising and expanding consciousness. To learn that its not "all about you" - the same lesson Magneto tried to teach wolverine.
I am glad to see magic again. We need some right now.

We are the Force.

It's been a while since I've seen it at this point so I don't remember specifics but I recall really enjoying the "focus determines reality" message of the reality presented. The battles, I thought, made for good illustration that being spiritually powerful is as much about adaptability as it is discipline. My bias may have filtered my viewing though. B)

This movie could be used as an educational tool.

And now... in 2017 we are seeing clips in YouTube.

The one I've waited for is linked here. The person that made this forgot to include the 'best part' of the entire sequence. After showing Doctor Strange several illustrations concerning chakras, a full body MRI and accupuncture points, Strange waves it all off as 'books I've seen in airport gift shops'. Hence the Ancient One's question at the end of this clip.

I am also not absolutely certain her entire dialogue is included. It had some excellent points I'd love to have as 'standard teachings' in the IJRS. Guess I'll have to buy the DVD and do a transcription one of these days.

In everyday life we are SO SURE we know how things are; the way things 'should be'...

Here at the IJRS, we try to show that if you open your eye(s), there is a greater Truth 'out there'.

Sure, it is not all unicorns farting rainbows and tinkerbells sprinkling happy dust. It can leave you pissed -- or scared to come out from under your bed covers.

That is why we emphasize 'being prepared' for whatever might come your way... even stuff stranger than Strange.
