directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (2003) – Humans have no answer to one of the greatest question of their life. It asks if the ruler is Mr. Destiny or Mr. Free Will. In other words, is everything already established or can we make real choices? Possibly, the right answer will forever stay unknown to us. And maybe it is much better this way.

The more technology steps forward the more we need to respect the universal order. When technology progresses we need to make good use of the best sentiments.

Instead we can work on ourselves and find the right adaptations to the new world. This is not to accept the situation but to find the smartest ways to react.
