COMING SOON - The Mother Side of the Wake, the Laughtears.com prequel demake of 2001: A Space Odyssey by Kubrick, which probes:

"I can only regard the movie as the mechanization and distortion of this cognitive miracle by which we recreate within ourselves the exterior world. But whereas cognition provides that dance of the intellect which is the analogical sense of Being, the mechanical medium has tended to provide merely a dream world which is a substitute for reality rather than a means of proving reality." - McLuhan

"The drama of cognition itself. For it is in the drama of cognition, the stages of apprehension, that Joyce found the archetype of poetic imitation. He seems to have been the first to see that the dance of being, the nature imitated by the arts, has its primary analogue in the activity of the exterior and interior senses." - McLuhan

2- What about you, most reflects your mother? What did you mainly get from your Mom?
