I do realize it's been a mostly tough year for choice cinema...
How desperate have people become, for good old fashioned entertainment?
At what point does thinking outside of the box, lose the spheres of influence??
How far must you open your mind, before your brains fall out???
What happens when you cross doomsday cultism, with nihilism?
While these each can become complicated questions, the one thing that slam dunks them all is this ludicrous "Flat Earth" noise.
I've heard more than enough of this stuff, direct from some true believers even.
What they never seem to get it, just because good science fiction tends to involve elements that dont exist yet, logical fallacies in presenting such isn't the grand design.
In numerous scifi flicks we've seen the pre-future notion of the spinning wheel spacecraft (which supplies artificial gravity) a plenty. The mere existence of the concept isn't itself a logical fallacy. We just haven't built one yet....
The ways one could completely obliterate this flat earth noise is seemingly infinite. I would surmise it goes far beyond the contortions of logic the believers of the flat earth / no gravity / no outer space crowd could themselves come up with, but once you throw logic and observation out the window there's no limits to imaginative absurdity that one could behold in pursuits of their Motivated Reasoning.
But forget all of that for a moment.... Has "flat earth" ever even been portrayed in scifi? I know "hollow earth" has been.
If you're into this stuff, just ask yourself, on top of the millions of people over the course of the last 100+ years who would have to be in on this 'conspiracy' to cover up this 'truth', now also everyone across all of cinema across the entire globe are also in 'on it'???
The 3D nature of our world is as fundamental to our sense of reality as the fact that time runs forward. And yet some researchers believe that contradictions between Einstein's theory of relativity and quantum mechanics might be reconciled if every three-dimensional object we know and cherish is a projection of tiny, subatomic bytes of information stored in a two-dimensional Flatland
