Jared Leto

Jared Leto plays Nemo Nobody in Mr Nobody. At 118, he recalls his 5 year old self. Jared is narrating: Everything we see exists, we can see it. I can see mommy's eyes, but I can't see my eyes. The little baby can see his hands, but he cannot see himself. So, does he really exist? Do I really exist?
Nemo's Mother: [appears from behind a sheet] Boo!

When I was 6, I could hear my thoughts but I couldn't hear other people's thoughts so I concluded I was the only person in the world who could think
When I was 8, my grandfather took me to church every summer day at 6pm for 3 months. I didn't understand why I had to go through the chants of 70 year old women and a priest with a leg in the tomb. But it slowly dawned on me and I concluded I was the second coming of Christ - but I didn't tell anyone, I kept the secret
When I was 10, I landed in a catholic school and the first day of my first catechism course, doubt became my religion - I would believe in god in the morning and become a nihilist towards lunch when I was hungry - The priest used to start the course with: “Ask God for anything you want" - and every time, I'd pull out the day's newspaper, quote the deaths in Irak and ask God when he was planning to do something about it - the priest never did anything - Neither did God. I concluded I could not believe in God anymore
At 12, I remember sitting down and looking at people around me baffled. How can they can keep walking ? How do they go about their lives without an answer to why ? Why why why ? Why will I do the next step ? Why would I utter the next ... ? I concluded: we live because we cannot die. We live because we have no choice. We live because we can't do otherwise. So I lived.

Split-brain patients are people who due to an operation have their left hemisphere disconnected from their right hemisphere for medical treatment. The two stop communicating. When shown pictures of naked people, their left brain perceives it and they start to giggle. They notice their body giggling, they just don't understand why. Now when the doctor asks them why they are giggling, their right hemisphere needs to answer knowing that it hasn't received the visual data from the left hemisphere. "Why are you giggling asks the doctor ?" And the patient answers: "Because you keep asking me funny questions, doc" - Though the patient has no idea why he is laughing, the mind still fabricates an answer. The mind always finds a meaning. Confabulation

The young journalist asks: Everything you say is contradictory. You can't have been in one place and another at the same time. Of all those lives, which one is the right one?
Nemo Nobody aged 118, 10 minutes away from his death: Each of these lives is the right one! Every path is the right path. Everything could have been anything else and it would have just as much meaning.

Come see, come see.
Welcome to the meaning factory:
We carve the void of our lives
Make teapots out of nothingness
And fill them with emptiness
For your eyes only

We are meaning machines building sensical towers - 
towering careers, 
sky-scraping love lives, 
cloud reaching belief systems - 
we make a puzzle out of life when there are no pieces in the first place

Here's the meaning of life for you (Poet shows empty hands and fingers - like a magician)

Nemo Nobody aged 118, 5 minutes away from his death, soft voice says 
"It should be written on every schoolroom blackboard: life is a playground or nothing."

SMS
Stop Making Sense
Here are the two cents
Of the man who’s brought down every tower in his mind
Be the terrorist of your heart
Be the ghost of your mind
And for your brain’s sake
Do make the same mistake
Go and commit the 9/11 of your soul

Here's the meaning of life for you (Poet shows empty hands and fingers - like a magician)

But look
From nothing
Spawns something - anything
For the beauty of the void is that it's limitless
