This totally reminded of his role in "Garden State" since he spoke Klingon in that role as well. It was a different line in the film, I wonder if he has made a serious study of the Klingon language . . .

That must have been quite a change, from the peaceful and rock-covered shores of Nice to the turbulent and stormy shores of the Pacific. I can't say I've ever been on a Southern California beach in the middle of a storm, but this post definitely made me miss the time I spent in the French Riviera. And I hope at 25 I haven't yet outgrown that "irrational immortality of youth" :)

It's interesting to think of that story from Hyperspace from a mathematical perspective, as I have only ever considered it from a philosophical one. If you've never read Plato's Republic, I highly recommend it. In his allegory of The Cave, he explores the exact same things. Paraphrasing as well as I can, if humans were tied down in a cave with a light behind them and could only see shadows on a wall, that would be their reality. If someone was freed from their restraints and able to exit the cave, how could they begin to explain reality to those who are so certain that the shadows on the wall are the real world? I read somewhere that The Matrix was loosely based on this allegory of The Cave, and I'm not sure if that is true, but it definitely makes you question how we would deal with revelations which question our very limited understanding of our own existence.
