    Default Videos and Scenes of Gamma Quadra

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=iHyJldOrNJI


    From Scarface.

    Now, I am not saying that Al Pacino's character, either in the clip or the whole movie, is LIE or even Gamma.

    What I am saying is that the underlying themes of the clip - especially taken into account the context of the movie as to his relationship with Michelle Pfeiffer, and of his sister and his friend - are Gamma, and could be seen as the issues related to LIE in a "fulfilled HA ego-trip".

    My personal speculative interpretation is that the movie and the character, as a whole, are Beta (as per the IEI Oliver Stone's script), but the montage of the clip shows the hand of the director, Brian de Palma, who takes such Gamma themes for granted.

    That's precisely the bit that's not very Gamma, culminating in the scene with the tiger.

    But apart from that, the point is that most of the people there were his wife (Michelle Pfeiffer), and his sister, his best friend, and other close ones.

    Castillo is one bad ass INTp character:
    ...the human race will disappear. Other races will appear and disappear in turn. The sky will become icy and void, pierced by the feeble light of half-dead stars. Which will also disappear. Everything will disappear. And what human beings do is just as free of sense as the free motion of elementary particles. Good, evil, morality, feelings? Pure 'Victorian fictions'.

    The way it seemed to be something of a time line highlighting success and relationships was the part that seemed Gamma to me. The way they walked around in a group like that and the way they carried themselves seemed more Beta (as did the showing off). It was like a Gamma went through and highlighted what he saw as the significant things about a Beta movie.

    That's the biased Gamma + view of Beta + . I'd expect Betas to see it as plain "success". I'll try to think of one video that shows the opposite view.

    Do you identify with this, what's in the clip?

    I identify with the underlying themes, not with how they are precisely manifested. I would also get "drunk" with exhilaration if thinking that my super-id functions are suddenly being very fulfilled, and probably behave like a bit of a jerk, but not in the specifics of throwing money, especially in silly things like the tiger (also because I have a problem with keeping wild animals in a zoo or the like).

    I identify more with the present (as I see it) super-id behavior of Nicolas Sarkozy, which is why I think he's LIE and why I find it embarrassing to watch.

    (I know.) Well, being There (with a capital T) is one thing. But think about not being There. And then think about people who are There running around rubbing it in not-There's faces (intentionally or not, though intentionally is worse).

    I'm not saying I'd necessarily feel like that. I might be tempted to at times, maybe, but perspective can be a good cure for any self-pity or resentment. I could easily see it happening in the people who'd get "run over" by those like in the video, though. I've seen similar happen before, historically speaking and also just in people around me.



    So, do you actually see it, or just theoretically understand it?

    That's just the Gamma perspective. Perhaps Gammas see Beta success as being "flashy". Maybe Beta sees Gamma success as boring or something?

    I was still in mid of editing, so the quotes don't match But anyway I think that the "carrot-guy" is same type as Sean Penn, who I believe is typed as NiFe.

    Nice. I will play this song really loud all day long with my windows open, so I can lure some SEE woman into my house :-d

    Great strategy. I works even better then the last time when I painted my house pink.

    This is one of my favorite youtube poops. I find almost every scene rediculously funny, but thats mostly because I'm accustomed to watching it.
    "if you think youve got it, youve got it! if youve got it, you think youve got it!" lol
    its definitely not that funny compared to others ive seen.

    This should be self-explanitory, if not then good luck. John Adams. Not the best of composers, but he definitely had the right idea in mind with his style. You might recognize this theme from the computer game called Civilization.

    How the hell does Glenn Beck (or that interview) have anything to do with Gamma?
