Cinema isn't materials. It's refined, imaginative see ing... darkness made visible. It existed long before modern devices, since the first opening of the first animal eye lid... scene one, take one. When solar light (Sun's thought?) and our own light of mind meet, whatever the medium, cinema is possible. This is a spiritual transaction. Sun's light emanates, projecting image of 'world' through 'eye' and into camera obscura of brain (a 'darkened chamber' indeed). Mind imagines... forming a scenario of intent and desire... and projects that light back through 'eye' onto 'world'. We blink. This intermittance creates our dubious dream of 'time'... belief in sequence of scene becomes 'before' and 'after'. Sequence requires duration... the rest is history! The eye you see 'it' with is the eye 'it' sees you with. Refinement in this area is possible... and desirable. This can be understood magically. This is the great primal cinema of animal consciousness... o ne of the longest running movies in show biz... at which we are all captivespectators, asleep and awake, from first light to final fade.
