A Dream Come True ****

I am a visual mathematician in nature, and I do agree about it. Everything I understand / solve must be perceivable either in the air, my mind, as a proof of concept or on paper. But I *must* be able to see it / imagine it / represent it pictorially before I am game.

All of us have dreams 8->, and nightmares. Sometimes when things turn out eitherway in life it is a dream come true and am blessed with one such ;). But one dream has come true right away.

I ain't an avid reader of novels, but I do read ocassionally upon someones urge / recommendation. Compared to most readers I am very slow, coz when I read a book I picturize every scene, every dialogue and all those picturesque descriptions. Its like, I dream that which I read, maybe coz I am a piscean ;).

Sphere by Michael Crighton, was such a let down considering how fantastic the book was. But The DaVinci Code stood up well. It was just as I picturized it in my mind. If I am not mistaken I read the book in two whole days at my office desk secretively ;) (I had to break frequently to pretend that I was working). I found the story so very engrossing that I couldn't let go, so I let go of my work in favour of this :D.

I am not sure if people who have not read the book would like the movie as much. The movie National Treasure would be a good gauge of how much you'd like this one. But for those who did read, it would be such blissful walk down your favourite trail. Though the details were not as much as there was in the book, for once they have stuck to the original story and it did live up well :). Of course, Dan Brown's signature romantic fling in the end was missing :p, but didn't prove a spoiler.

Oh yeah, the only thing my imagination went amiss was how Sophie's grandmother looked, for I imagined her with looooong white hair :(. To watch Ian McKellen do his role was \:D/ ha ha, such a pleasure. So befitting it was, even more so his role as Magneto in X-Men series. Jean Reno was another obvious choice for Captain Fach's role. Though I'd have preferred Willem Dafoe for the character of André Vernet.

Too bad it is banned here :(, my friends and I were so much in anticipation of the movie. Its a good movie worth ... NO!!!, a must watch in theatre if you are a movie buff. I'd give this movie 3.75 stars of 5 :).

samy, the first couple of lines.. appealed to me as a very profound statement.. dont know if you meant it to be that way..

so, lemme ask you this..based on that statement about being a "visual mathematician", do you find it difficult to believe in God and Love? :)

well thats the true me dude ... I believe in that which I can perceive ... I dun need to necessarity quantize it :)

as for love, I do know that - "the pattern of love is similar to pattern of insanity" :)) ... n I'v seen it play havoc ;) ... its an emotion and its real :) ... ur say :-/

as for god ... interpretation of god varies b/w ppl ;) ... if u'v read the bhagavath gita, u might remember this (its my fav part) - the enlightened person see's god in a fello human, a cow, an elephant, a dog and a dog-eater

I ain't all that enlightened yet :D ... but I do perceive the people around me with varying proportions of godliness ... god is a mechanism to gives purpose to those who seem to have lost it ... I can't quantize it but I can qualify it ;)

gud enuf 4 me :D
