A thought provoking and philosophically deep video by David Komer, a long-time staff member of Ohr Chadash.
Beings from another dimension are sent on a mission to take control of a simple street performer’s life- for his own benefit.
However, that’s just the story on the surface.
Intentionally ambiguous, the goal is to toy with the ideas of free will and determinism.
It’s best enjoyed by watching it first for some excitement and just to absorb it as a whole. Then go back to understand better what’s going on and to get at the bigger existential questions as they apply to our actual lives. How much of life is decided by individual choice, and how much is affected by external circumstances beyond our control? What if we could affect those circumstances, albeit subtly, is it then still an expression of our will? Does belief in either an all-encompassing nature or an all-powerful God necessarily negate the possibility for free choice?
