Convincing oneself, and then it’s too late

>There needs to be constant conflict. For if peace presides for too long,
generations will forget what it was like during the war, they will forget
that terror is needed for the control of the people. For if we don’t do it,
there will be chaos – we are an extremely important link in this chain my
son.
>> Are you serious? What’s so bad about people breaking apart and forming
their own groups dedicated to science and the betterment of us all?
> That simply cannot work – people who unite together will be exploited by
the other evil forces. Don’t you understand? We’re essential, we’re the
barrier that stops the greater evil.
>> But that still makes us lesser evil.
> Yes, unfortunately yes. I cannot claim that we’re doing the purest thing
– but as I said, it is essential.
>> Listen, don’t take that tone like you’ve convinced me. I still think
that what you’re saying is only a hypothetical idea – How can you be so
sure that the people don’t rally up in the future?
> We’re barbarians my son – we’re all savages, animals. We are so
susceptible to inhumane acts, it is within us all – it can’t be helped, there needs to be control.
>> I still believe that there can be a pacifistic way out.

Twin Peaks Thoughts

i.e: Twin Peaks – Season 2
– The location of Bob and the other Spirit’s members aren’t directly told
to the audience. That information is scattered through out the episodes and
the info comes from many characters, fragments, that the audience (through
ditectives) are trying to piece together. The info is also recalled from
the past; i.e. Bob living in the lake house. So, the background of the
Spirit Characters are pieced together, thus indirectly telling the history of them.

Twin Peaks Thoughts

Scene: the feeling of extreme urgency, lying on the ground while a building is crumbling down upon you. Your friend closes the lid of the egg shaped casket above you. You close your eyes and take in a deep relaxing breath, letting go of the memories around you, you travel inwards within your mind. Strange twists open up in front of your mind’s scape – each time it is different, unpredictable; the trick is knowing in which direction to go. Finally you ground yourself within this new place that you’ve gone to. And in a split of a second you remember where to go and how to operate within this new logic. You hear a bang on this egg carton like coffin, you were trained to open it whenever you hear a bang. You snap out of it, being extremely confused on your whereabouts and time. You snap open the lid – you’re located in a totally new place. Your ‘friend’/teacher is standing next to you.
