I Can Hear Your Thoughts

The noise is a man’s thoughts unfiltered, and without a filter a man is just chaos walking.

Are you a noisy type of person? Do you have the ability to hear people's thoughts? What if we can hear each other’s thoughts?

Today I will share another film I have recently watched and the first line was also the introduction to the film. It was said by an unknown new world settler. The main character of the film was Tom Holland. For sure you know who he is. Your most recent friendly neighborhood – Spiderman.

The title of the film was “Chaos Walking”. According to Wikipedia, the film was a box office failure because it only had $22 million gross income while the budget for the filmmaking was $100 million. It was released in theatres in South Korea on February 24, 2021 and in the US on March 5 of the same year.

Chaos walking is a fictional film, a science fiction actually, where a young man lives in a world with injustice. No woman and all living people can hear each other’s thoughts, flashing images, words and other sounds. They called it “Noise”.

The film receives a lot of negative feedback in rottentomatoes from different film analysts.

Imagine if you have the ability to hear people’s thoughts. Do you think it is cool? Like for example you are talking to a person who seems to agree with you and responses well however at the back of his mind he is contradicting. How would you react if you could hear his unspoken disagreeing thoughts? If you tell the person about it of course he might deny your accusation but he will feel strange about you. If people would know your ability perhaps they may keep their distance from you. Or some will pay you to read someone’s thoughts or what his enemy is thinking about him. You could be rich if you have this ability. On the contrary you might freak out because so many thoughts are flashing to your mind from all the people who come near to you and you can’t control it.

Let’s reverse it. How would you react to a person if he can tell you all about your thoughts? It’s like you can’t hide any secrets because he can tell it all in your face. Isn’t it annoying? You will never find peace because you are always thinking that the person might reveal all your secrets to anyone. More likely your privacy is no longer safe with him.

What if suddenly all people have the same ability to read each other’s thoughts? I think there will be chaos because everyone will be attentive to what other people think. We will start to hate our neighbors because we discovered that they all have negative thoughts about us contrary to what they are showing to us. Or the way we think of them is just the same as our neighbors think of us.

How about if men can only hear the thoughts of fellow men not of a woman, while the women can hear the thoughts of men not with fellow women. Do you think it’s fair enough?

For example, in the film “Chaos walking”, Viola (Daisy Ridley) and Todd (Tom Holland) were having a conversation about something emotional in the middle of the forest. They were sheltering a roof of the coat while waiting for the rain to stop. Todd was thinking of kissing her then suddenly breaks because Todd’s thought was audible to her and she was kind of annoyed. He ended up feeling sorry because of his foolish thoughts. He can’t control the noise flashing through his mind.

It appears that there was real chaos in Todd’s place hearing each other’s noise even when a person is asleep. Men can’t take it that all women know everything about them while men know nothing about women.

If this is the case men will always freak out. For example when someone pisses me off, I tend to think things like revenge. I even think of attacking him as if I am a martial arts expert. In my mind I have already punished him. But that I will not do for real of course. Just my imagination. So, If our fellow men would hear those negative thoughts especially if the thoughts are provocative it will for sure bring conflict and that would result in chaos. What more if only women can hear the thoughts of men and not men hearing thoughts of women? In such cases as in the movie, men have eradicated all the women. But the story that has been told to Todd while he was growing up was that The Spackle was responsible for killing all of the women in their place.

Anyway this has been another interesting movie for you to watch even though it receives low ratings. We have different perceptions on how to appreciate film. This film is science fiction and there is no way that it can happen in real life. Although there are people who were born with special gifts similar to knowing other people's thoughts.

Would you want to have such a gift? Share in the comment so we can interact.

Thanks for reading. Ciao!

Thank you for commenting on the plot of the film. Although, on second thought. Most people have that ability. I am not kidding! At the moment I write these lines I am hearing a physically inaudible voice in my mind. You could say that it has characteristics similar to physical ones.

The funny thing about all these is that sometimes thoughts flow intently out of nowhere, surprising you.

It has happened to you that sometimes you say an expression or word at the same time as another. Synchronization or echoes of thoughts.

What happens is that in the maelstrom of the world the voices get confused. So from now on, pay more attention to what you hear in your mind, but I advise you to be prudent in commenting on it lest they call you schizophrenic.

I always experience like my mind is out of sync with my hands when I write. You know the words and phrases are complete in my thoughts and then simultaneously writing. But then when I read the constructed sentence it lacks a word or two.

And that's why we are not given that type of ability because for sure, there will be chaos everyday and I doubt if we can build good relationship to anyone 😁

For sure everyone will be attentive to what his neighbor think which could be troublesome everyday.

Movie plot seems quite interesting.. I don't know why it got negative remarks... Have to watch it before... Anyways.. If we have the ability to read thoughts then I think there will be a fight every minute 🤣😂

For me I think was the concept of reading someone's thoughts which could be real problem in real life. Like you have said, there will be conflicts even in your own family.

Some fun take on that movie, in a nutshell, it kinda just showed how men are predictable and women aren't. Haha! 😁

At some point I'd think it is awesome. That means I'd be able to understand whatever anyone's going through on point. But that would be maddening. Specially for someone who, at the moment cannot hear anyone's thoughts, but is already overthinking. So knowing someone else's thoughts will add more to what she's thinking. Haha. But but that would be nice if we can filter out who's head voice we can hear . . .

Now that i think of it, not knowing anyone's thoughts makes them interesting/mysterious. Might hunt for that movie hehe ..

and it's more like you are responsible if you happen to hear a prayer from a needy or a wish from a child.

I am downloading movies with torrents. It's free.

It's advantageous to have that ability but it is also dangerous.

Yes indeed and for sure some opportunistic people will take more advantage of that.
