I didn't know anything 'bout this... I don't care about Time (...and time) so I didn't notice this time shifting... BTW, here in Sicily Time is always "relative".

To me T/time is an annoying illusion I have to live with when I'm "conscious."
:)

Do you like the Soderbergh version of "Solaris" better
than Tarkovsky's? (Clooney/cloney vs. the water imagery.)

Lem's book was much more cerebral, and usually the novel is
better, but in this case there is a lot to say about how
the visual interpretation makes the ideas visceral.

Time set by "Human beings" is stupid: they can't tell, 'cos don't know, when it began/begin but they believe it goes just straight/forward even unknowing where'e the end of it: linear, monotonous, simple... stupid.

I've seen both, Soderbergh and Tarkovskij versions; I'd choose the first one, if I must do it. In Soderbergh movie there's, paradoxically, THE "idea": a man, a woman, a dream; two living beings and "me" who thinks watching them.

I read Lem's book not entirely; I didn't feel the "necessity" to read on and I didn't want to make any comparison between the images seen "through" the movies and the word/images of Lem's mind.

Julian Barbour has the best description of the
illusion of time in western literature in
The End of Time.
But we already knew that all along....
Time is so relative the American symbol for it is old "Father Time"
who gets replaced by an infant each New Year.

When I first saw Soderberth's Solaris I was disappointed because
it didn't live up to my memory of Tarkovsky's -- then when I watched
Tarkovsky's again, I was disappointed because it didn't live up to
being better than Soderbergh's!

The fleur de lis/luce is still there, still submerged!

There's no way/reason that fleur could be spr-out.
