The coolest bad guys always quote Melville.
'Star Trek The Motion Picture' aka Star Trek 1, was actually written to be a series. When the studio decided to kill the series (which was to be called 'Star Trek New Voyages') they mashed up two scripts from the series and took the sets, props and actors who were already filming the pilot to make the movie.
That is the reason for the slow pacing. The scripts were written to build up to a mid season climax after six to ten episodes, not 132 minutes.
On its own, I would have to agree that 'STWOK' was a better film than 'STTMP'(much more watchable) But,'STTMP' was cinegraphically better and closer to the tone of the original 'Star Trek' series.
Fair enough and interesting background.

Can I take it you're also a Star Trek fan vs Star Wars?

I had looked up the Kahn quote but forgot it was Melville.

Reminds of a good short story - Bartleby the Scrivener.

He kept saying "I would prefer not to". Good stuff to the teenager I
was at the time I read it.(Him and of course Holden Caulfield.)

And point out where I actually wrote the words you attribute to me.
A Jew will still be Jewish ethnically if leaves Judaism. He will be an ethnic Jew but not a religious Jew.
I know we have covered all this before and no doubt Frijoles is laughing at me for even engaging you on this subject yet again.
Ask it what the two denominations are that it goes to.

I just know Jews don't believe in JC as the son of god.

Otherwise they'd be Christians.

That part at least seems fairly straight forward.

MORALS

What're morals? People say they're mere mental constructs of right or wrong that can be dispensed with or which have no real existence except in a subjective sense since materialistic science cannot answer questions on morality. What is mind? Mind is a specific frequency of vibration of the energy field with its innate consciousness. Thus, morals have a basis in the reality and are not simply intangible mental constructs that're more subjective than objective. Any action that results in bringing more order into the system is moral, any act that introduces disturbance in the energy field of the system is amoral which we know is true from personal experience and by observing world events. Are the Gods (created by the yogis by projecting their own mental formations in the universal energy field) moral? Far from it. Were the religious prophets moral? Far from it. Are most people in the world moral? Far from it.

Neither crass rationalists nor the religious nuts are capable of entering into deeper states of consciousness because rationalists are too rigid in thinking and cannot think in terms of omnijectiveness, while religious freaks are too caught up in the shenanigans of the Personal God (that was created by a powerful mental projection of a mystic or by a group of mystics of their religion) they worship to look at the reality in its plenary splendor and besides they have weird creationist ideas that warp their perception of the reality. Only those rare individuals with a sensitive nervous system with 24/7 burning aspiration to unite with the higher dimensions of the reality and who understand the subjective as well as the objective aspects of the universal energy field with its inherent consciousness can hope to become yogis.

rabbee: nah! i am talking about, star trek the series - about the wrath of kahn. so far all the star trek movies, are little more than expansions of one of their episodes - nothing really new. just like the new Riddick movie, is just another pitch black movie with a twist.

rabbee: well HaMosheeach is the same one as the last two Torot times. and this world still can't figure out, G-D'S Story does not change to this world rejecting it from G-D again.

G-D already told this world, Who HaMosheeach is. and this world still does not believe it, here in TheTorah again. and just can't get that G-D'S Truth does not ever change, to this world making all the same mistakes again.

Trek vs Wars? Alien apples and genetically mutated oranges. Both are cool but Trek is probably more closely related to the human condition and the story lines are supposed to make you think (mostly about alien women with gravity-defying boobs).

Star Wars, on the other hand, is good old-fashioned space blaster action and good fun (we won't speak of those "prequels" for which may Mr Lucas be fed to the Sarlac).

FYI -- Holden Caulfield is a character in a novel by J.D. Salinger, not the author.

Love the original series. That's where it all came from.

Ever see the Twilight Zone episode with Shatner on the plane? Classic.

Yes, I know. Was comparing Bartlbey with Holden - two characters. Thought you were with me! Two independent types.

Most American school kids had to read Catcher.

Star Wars is ok/ I'm generally not a sci fi fan. Save the Star Treks mentioned.

rabbee: yeah the fit two or three episodes into a movie. and most of the star trek series like the next generation is offshoots of the original too. hard to imagine, the graphics at the time were state of the art. but the plots and lessons were good.

yeah Shatner on the plane with the devil ripping it apart. aside from star trek, twilight zone and science fiction theater were two my favorites. and then there is always the old standby, rocky and Bullwinkle.

and every time adam and his mate arrive, there is always none of you ever here in TheTorah now.

cause you all cannot figure out, what Story TheG-D of Only TheTorah is giving here. cause you all think, your soooo! smart.

G-D only gives TheTorah, to all you - were not here, were not here, were not here. well i know, your all not here. in your being a Whole Torah short of a full load, here in IT.
