When ever I watch the skyscrapers of Chicago, I am reminded of the movie The Matrix. It definitely was a movie with deeply profound and meaningful threads of truth, at intense philosophical and spiritual levels. Reality in some sense is dictated by our beliefs and our environment. Truth then is a matter of becoming aware of what is and what is not. This for one went beyond just being a movie – to build the base from scriptures and different religions and cultures. It makes one wonder – at the end science and spiritually are just different ways to the same destination.
Do not try and bend the spoon, that's impossible. Instead, only try to realize the truth ... there is no spoon. Then you will see, it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
As for this shot, it was a pleasant evening by the lake – cool breeze, majestic building, clear skies, some stars at a distance - but my mind kept coming back to how we are stuck with or sometimes within the system. It is all an illusion :)
