All energy is borrowed and someday you have to give it back

I have decided my imagination, my dreams are no more going to be black & white, lack spectacular design or have scientific boundaries, from now on they are going to be wild, they are going to be so wild that it will be hard for others even imagine. Its just so hard to even imagine Pandora - the imagination of James Cameron.

Avatar, the story is very simple - it is kept simple so that we don't concentrate too much to understand the story, instead sit back and enjoy the special effects, I did just that!

The wild & beautiful touch-me-not plants, the territorial titanothere when threatened of its territory - lowers its head and charges against the threat (wow, what a display it is), the baneesh, toruk makto (I wish I had one to ride it) oh but only 5 people rode it till now - with Jake its 6... I can go on and on... Everything looks Pandorian to me now!!

Though the story is simple - I am amazed how easily Cameron made us all take the side of a race against our own race, we all (the audience) wanted our own race to be defeated!! Isn't it just against the law of nature!! But Cameron did it so easily... you might even argue that you are taking the side of good, but belive me - when you are in such situation, its almost impossible for you take a side against your own race - thats the basics of racial growth! and genocide is known only to humans... I would be surprised if you show me the concept of genocide in any other species of course other than virus.

This reminds me of a excellent dailouge by "Agent Smit" in the movie Matrix... quote Agent Smit... which is a computer program talking to a human "Morpheous" -- "I'd like to share a revelation that I've had during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague and we are the cure."

The movie shows us how much we have distanced ourselves with mother nature, thats something we should learn from this movie. The whole natural networking concept existed on our planet too (not in the exact same way) but over generations we sucessfully killed that instinct. We have to learn and rage a war against the destruction of this nature... thats the only we can let our race exist and thats the only way we can provide a better future for our children.

The wait continues for the leader Jake to come for our rescue! I hope he comes to lead us before its too late!
