Adaptation

"We're all one thing, Lieutenant. That's what I've come to realize. Like cells in a body. 'Cept we can't see the body. The way fish can't see the ocean. And so we envy each other. Hurt each other. Hate each other. How silly is that? A heart cell hating a lung cell." --Cassie from The Three

Watched Adaptation this afternoon for about the 150 thousandth time. Noticed this little quote right at the end of the credits, said to be from The Three, the fictional screenplay from the movie written by Donald Kaufman, Charlie Kaufman's fictional twin brother.

It is often difficult for people to adapt when circumstances are altered, to stay afloat in a changing environment, relentless time darting past, situation and surroundings forever flowing by. Somehow though we seem to manage.

When you think of the body as an ever-changing community of cells, each with its own part to play, millions upon millions upon millions, living, dividing, multiplying and dying, pushing life forward with unfathomable interconnecting complexity, the trivial things in life become almost inconsequential.


They cloned Nick Cage for this movie
