Great Movie. watch twice already! Cloud Atlas which is a symphony composed by the principal character in the early 20th C resembles the symphony of the soul in six lives. There is no past, present, nor future in the multiple universe. The six lives are happening all at the same time, each influencing one another, threading through the fabrics of time like needle weaving causes and effects together. Our acts and thoughts, large and small, kind and wicked, leave an imprint that echoes and bounces back in the universe. There is ultimate truth beyond the law of man - love, trust, kindness and beauty - that is universal and that stands the challenges of our value system over time. We are the creators of our existence. Being small water droplets in the ocean, our thoughts and acts do make a difference. Be kind to those who are different from us, the minority - whether they are different by race, sexual inclination, sex, birth, physical and mental strength, they are brothers and sisters and are to be respected. We should abide by the true truths or we will be ruined by our greed - the desire for more!
