I stumbled upon this website last night when I was trying to find a scene from this movie. Its the full transcript of the Waking life. I’m really glad I found it and want to share it with anyone else who didn’t know about it.
The information you get from reading something compared to watching something is processed differently and soaked up a little bit better I think. When your watching something you don’t really pause and think about what you saw until the end of the video because you might miss what’s shown next. You want to process the information more deeply, but you also want the information to contentiously flow, so you don’t spend as much time thinking about it. When your reading something you can think about what you just read and can ponder on it for a sec before continuing.
But yea, here’s the transcript if you want to read it. My favorites are ‘We Are the Authors’ and ‘Trapped in a Dream’.
