Three Thousand Years Of Longing

What Is It?

The 2022 fantasy movie, Three Thousand Years Of Longing.

THREE THOUSAND YEARS OF LONGING | Official Trailer | MGM Studios
Three Thousand Years of Longing Featurette – The Djinn and the Genius (2022)

This is how the IMDB describes this movie:

Dr Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton) is an academic – content with life and a creature of reason.

While in Istanbul attending a conference, she happens to encounter a Djinn (Idris Elba) who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom.

This presents two problems.

First, she doubts that he is real and second, because she is a scholar of story and mythology, she knows all the cautionary tales of wishes gone wrong.

The Djinn pleads his case by telling her fantastical stories of his past.

Eventually, she is beguiled and makes a wish that surprises them both.

This is how Wikipedia describes this movie:

Three Thousand Years of Longing is a 2022 fantasy film co-written and directed by George Miller.

An adaptation of the short story “The Djinn in the Nightingale’s Eye” by A. S. Byatt, the film stars Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton.

Three Thousand Years of Longing had its world premiere at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival on May 20, 2022, and is scheduled to be released in the United States on August 31, 2022, by United Artists Releasing.[4]

A scholar, content with life, encounters a Djinn who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom.

Their conversation, in a hotel room in Istanbul, leads to consequences neither would have expected.[5]

Lucid Dreaming: Waking Up In The Dream World

What Is It?

The YouTube video Lucid Dreaming: Waking Up In The Dream World by the YouTube channel Think Anomalous:

Lucid Dreaming: Waking Up In The Dream World

Here is the description for this video:

Science has now proven that it’s possible to “wake up” within a dream, and a few mystical traditions, as well as a growing number of modern scholars, suggest there are a host of benefits to doing so.

Lucid dreaming may offer each of us a means of self-improvement, and it challenges the Western understanding of both consciousness and reality.
