Inner Light Revisited

Submitted by blogmeister on Fri, 23/10/2009 - 22:23

I have been thinking about Picard in The Inner Light and wondered what it would be like if the event happened in his infancy.

Imagine he is less than a year old. The probe transports him into another life where he is the same age, and has a new mother and a new family. He grows up into adulthood, has a family and becomes a grandparent. He dies, the whole event took all of 20 minutes and his consciousness returns back to his original consciousnesss, back to the same age and same family.

Yuri - which life do we really prefer?

There is a film featuring Kevin Costner entitled No Way Out. You ought to watch the film which is about a naval officer, Farell, who gets caught up in some political intrigue when the lover of senior government official gets killed. The death is blamed on a fictional Soviet spy codenamed Yuri and the hunt begins.

Star Trek - The Inner Light

Star Trek - The Inner Light is one of my favourite episodes, because it is so evocative about the nature of awareness, the nature of life and consciousness itself. It is a story about Picard, who is transported not so much physically, but in terms of his whole consciousness into another life, into another place in the past in which he lives as a different person. He has a wife, he has a family, he begets a grandchild and lives a full family life.
