MERLIN Graphic Battle:  deanpendragon vs. multenis
↳ Round 4: Reincarnation

There is a fundamental reason why we look at the sky with wonder and longing—for the same reason that we stand, hour after hour, gazing at the distant swell of the open ocean. There is something like an ancient wisdom, encoded and tucked away in our DNA, that knows its point of origin as surely as a salmonid knows its creek. Intellectually, we may not want to return there, but the genes know, and long for their origins—their home in the salty depths. But if the seas are our immediate source, the penultimate source is certainly the heavens… The spectacular truth is—and this is something that your DNA has known all along—the very atoms of your body—the iron, calcium, phosphorus, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, and on and on—were initially forged in long-dead stars. This is why, when you stand outside under a moonless, country sky, you feel some ineffable tugging at your innards. We are star stuff. Keep looking up.

So, yes, for the fucking love of God, movies matter. TV shows matter. Novels matter. They shape the lens through which you see the world. The very fact that you don’t think they matter, that even right now you’re still resisting the idea, is what makes all of this so dangerous to you — you watch movies so you can turn off your brain and let your guard down. But while your guard is down, you’re letting them jack directly into that part of your brain that creates your mythology. If you think about it, it’s an awesome responsibility on the part of the storyteller. And you’re comfortable handing that responsibility over to Michael Bay.

This is probably one of the most important things you can read if you’re still asking yourself the questions:

1. “Why does this blog need to exist?”

2. “Why do people still think people of color were invented 100 years ago?”

3. “Why are there so many just plain wrong ideas about the past in regard to racial diversity?”

4. “Why are so many people so utterly convinced that there were no [insert marginalized group here] in history?”

5. “Why do you even care? It’s just a movie/book/show!”

It simply isn’t an adventure worth telling if there aren’t any dragons.
