  • There is a right and a wrong, you can discern by learning and applying the concepts of respect, peace, equallity, amongst other concepts. If we are born in a world where older humans are already in it, then they have the obligation to educate those concepts to the newborns. Whoever tells you that there is no such concepts like right and wrong are lying and trying to get away with crime, a crime they probably are trying to smear you into it. Time is conected, but time travel cannot be expirienced through a third dimension reception, because if it could they time wouldnt be time, life would be life, it would be far worst than an abstract concept, and it would have happened the moment a time portal would be open, everything would sudenlly change. Humans wouldnt be humans anymore.

  • Every individual is a thread on a spiderweb, so it actually depends on the right frequency of all living beings, specially humans. The right education (that must be an obligation not a right), the freedom to choose what to study and work on (those are the rights, but also obligations), and the confort in living (with peace) are the right frequency. If humans live on a predatory system (like the totalitarian ones obsesed with censorship, obvious or not) there will be injustice, victims and predators. If its not one it will be the other. You see if you could change the past and kill Hitler before he rises, then someone else would rise for him instead, maybe someone worse. Humans percive the world on a very selfish perception granted, that does not mean they are living on an island alone. So if humans want change they need to work the change togheter (even if we dont want to, specially when we dont want to, because as humans we are builded not to want to do it, we want someone else to do it for us, and if youre like me you just dont want to because you cant stand humans, but there is no other option, the other option is the predatory system).

  • I know Im later on this one but I actually think Dark requires us re-contextualize the entire story in the last few minutes. This is not Jonas’ story. Its Thannhaus’ what we see in these three seasons is an expression of his free will. He creates a machine to turn back the hands of time and save his family and it does just that. In the creation of two worlds and all the characters we see that device and by extension Thannhaus drives them to the goal of saving his son and changing his future.

  • Sometimes the more you try to correct something, the more you fail to perceive its true meaning. That's why the character's can't change the events since they don't even understand their own existance is part of that original mistake. I can understand why this is a german series, since they've had to deal with so much with past suffering, both felt and created by them. They can't change the past of their nation, but they can accept it and move on ONLY after understanding its meaning. A truly great series, and a great video as usual. Thanx, guys!!!

  • I watched the first season when it came out, then followed it through. However I was completely lost with each new season, and honestly, I couldn't appreciate this show. Now I did a re-watch, all 3 seasons, 1 day, 1 episode. Mein Gott! I completely blew me away. It finally made so much sense now, I could catch the little subtext too. Phenomenal show, easily the best thing, Netflix ever did. If you got confused, do yourself a favour and give it a second go.

  • More than a discussion on free-will I think it falls on an equation solution. given a simple x=1+2y. if x and y are not defined you change the x, you get a new y, but as you get one fixed, the other fixes also. BUT there are systems with more variables and unless ou have N-1 variables fixed, you still can change the other variables "freely" BUT (2) there are some systems that are convergent even without fixing all variables if you are in the convergent range, you can "guess" one variable, calculate the others and then get a new answer for the variable that you guessed, and every "loop" you make you get closer to the answer, until you are so close that every loop are not different from the previous, then you say you find a "close enough" answer (basically the error of the calculation is smaller that the error in the manufacture of the machine you are projecting). BUT (3) this convergent systems are not convergent for any initial guess, if you are too far from the answer it can diverge and you will never find the answer. The loops in the series are a system that is converged, imagined if an Adam always tells a number to Jonas and tells Jonas to say this number plus one to the next Jonas, we could be able to measure the loops and we inserted a marginal perturbation on it. What Adam tries to do is to create a perturbation big enough to put this system on the divergent area, giving a guess that is out of the convergent area, while Eva tries to keep it in the convergence area. Free will still exists but without knowing the system and the convergent/divergent area you can't unbalance it, the system will correct itself like a pendulum, because as far as the pendulum goes from the center , more is the "pressure" pushing it back to the center. In a divergent system this is opposed, a guy balancing on a line, the more unbalanced he is, the difficult it is to go back to balance.

    • And sometimes there is not only one convergent area, so you can actually jump from one convergent area to the other, and this explain the 2 universes and the orginal being a small convergent area in the middle. something like \_/-\_/ if we try to draw a chart

  • I was really disappointed with the ending of the show. The entire series was about people trying to use time travel to stop their suffering and just causing or passing along that suffering. The series reveals that the entire time loop of Winden was caused in the origin world by somebody trying to use time travel to undo their suffering, and then the solution the show offers is that Jonas and Martha then use time travel to end his suffering. It felt a bit shallow, that after three seasons pushing this narrative of the futility of using time travel, they use time travel to fix their problems, and then this time it works for some reason? I feel like the ending would have been a lot more poignant if instead of stopping the accident, the answer the show offers was Tannhaus accepting his suffering and loss, and never attempting to create time travel in the first place. That feels like what Jonas and Martha should have set out to do.

Is love real, since the reason they were drawn to each other was only to perpetuate the cycle? If the many-worlds interpretation about quantum mechanics is true, then how many worlds must exist where we made our other-selves miserable with our mindless small choices? Can you imagine what was going through their minds when they faded away? Fucking hell, amazing characters, amazing chemistry, amazing story, WHAT A SHOW!

  • I really dislike the use of time travel in stories involving free will, because depending on how you set up your time travel mechanics, whether free will exists or not is entirely predetermined. If loops are perfectly consistent, then free will doesn't exist. If loops aren't perfectly consistent, then free will does exist. This means choices that occur within the narrative have no effect on the thematic conclusion of your story. It's a topic that by definition lacks tension & stakes.

  • Unfortunately the theory is quite shallow, as it doesn't take into account the fact that hope (symbolysed by Claudia) is what led the knot to an end, not "not giving a fuck". So it is an incomplete reading of the series.
