Ghost in the Shell el hombre que ríe

I thought what I’d do was, I’d pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes.

Pensé que lo que haría sería pretender ser un sordomudo.

 EHQR. Quién podía imaginar que la ausencia de un original produciría copias sin un original? Si tuvieras que darle un nombre a este fenómeno, cómo lo llamarías?

La Mayor: Complejo de Autosuficiencia.

EHQR: Sí. Complejo de Autosuficiencia. Desde el principio, la naturaleza misma de nuestro actual sistema social ha contenido los mecanismos para activar fenómenos como éste. Personalmente creo que éste es el principio de la desesperación. Tú que opinas?

 La Mayor: No lo sé. No hay forma de saberlo. Pero he encontrado una cosa capaz de recuperar tu individualidad después de haber compartido toda tu información.

 EHQR: Dime, de qué se trata?

 La Mayor: Curiosidad, creo.

 EHQR: Oh! Entiendo. No sé como no se me había ocurrido.

“Yo soy la máquina que os muestra el mundo como solo yo puedo verlo”

 Dziga Vertov

  • Laughing Man: I’ll tell you. It was a simple piece of mail I stumbled across on the net that began the whole thing. What I’d found was a blackmail document that had probably been sent to Serano Genomics. It was armed with a thesis that was a comparative of the inadequacy of Serano micromachines versus the effectiveness of the Murai vaccine.
  • Motoko: Then the original Laughing Man was the person who authored it?
  • Laughing Man: You could put it like that, I suppose. “I am the machine that reveals the world to you as only I alone am able to see it”
  • Motoko: Dziga Vertov. He was a Russian filmmaker, wasn’t he?
  • Laughing Man: Yes. I was kidding myself by thinking it was my personal mission to prove and circulate that information, vital data I alone had happened upon.
  • Motoko: Failing spectacularly. The pure innocent mediator grew dejected at the base nature of the social system and he turned mute

“A human being is part of a whole, called by us the ‘Universe’ —a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts, and feelings, as something separated from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
— Albert Einstein (via milktree)
