The Beginning of Infinity

Yes, this is again amazing. I need two brains to watch and listen to the movie. Yet, I do feel slightly more informed.
A while ago, I felt the great fortune and thrill when unexpectedly I watched a movie in the middle of day, during lunch. I felt that I was overworking and was ill, so I allowed myself to travel around the world with the racers in mighty Lamborghinis. The movie was exceptionally well edited. It had the old-fashioned approach to filming the roads, traffic, and cars from all sorts of angles, from air and in multiple frames. They recorded few events along the way, a lot of cursing, few seconds of footage related with the local culture, and many situations in which crime was a sport. It was all spiced with extreme-sport events that they visited along they way.
I felt the great awe and nostalgia for the landscapes such as the roads around Las Vegas. Of course, due to my issues, I also believe that the expansion of cities and pollution are destroying the world, so paradoxically it seems that I like (the USA) what I hate. If all the roads and cities are bad for human beings in some way, their expansion is a part of human misery.
So for example, to relate this with your movie, the economy of New York is probably destroying the USA and the misery is expanding further on. But, the patterns such as the highways or the city scape are still fascinating. It is sufficient that the expansion is based on a few simple mathematical rules to create those patterns. Even if the cities expand and become a garbage land, they will look interesting. The process is chaotic and ordered at the same time, so the patterns are nice, rich.
It is just a thought. My point is that the patterning of the universe is somewhat inhuman or not that humane.
