A fine short film

This is a short film based on the "Parable About a Parable" chapter in Quantum Psychology, 9:43 in length but worth your time. It was uploaded to YouTube until 2006, but it escaped my attention until now. Hat tip, Bobby Campbell. The film opens with a young man portraying the character of Simon Moon.

The Franz Kafka text that much of this is based on can be found here (only about one page.)

The parable was discussed during the Quantum Psychology online discussion; read the comments here.

Strangely enough just yesterday I stumbled upon the comment to that section of the QP study group. Curiouser and curiouser.

Nice! I think it's a great adaptation of one of my favorite short RAW passages.

Found it completely by accident looking up reference to see how others had visualized "the door of the law."

Bobby, Feel free to make me look good by slipping me your other discoveries.

Chas, Don't you love these kinds of coincidences?

You mean coinci-dances?

After watching the clip I see that Simon get to experience the closing of the door while still alive--quite a gift!
