Each of us… at some time in our lives, turns to someone – a father, a brother, a God… and asks…”Why am I here? What was I meant to be?” -Commander Spock “Star Trek – The Motion Picture,” 1979.
“Star Trek – The Motion Picture” was on television recently and I recorded it to watch at my leisure. This movie was an attempt by the Star Trek franchise to explore ultimate realities. It asks questions about the existence of logic, consciousness, creativity, friendship, love, and imagination. You will have to decide for yourself how well the movie stimulates your own thinking in these areas.
The quote from Commander Spock is certainly true. At some point, we all ask the questions, “Why am I here?” and, “What was I meant to be?” The way we answer these questions shape our life and how we respond to the world.
