My Favorite Quotes from “I Origins” (2014 Movie).


. . .

Sofi: Do you know the story of the Phasianidae?

Ian: The… No, what’s that?

Sofi: It’s a bird that experiences all of time in one instant. And she sings the song of love and anger and fear and joy and sadness all at once. And this bird… when she meets the love of her life… is both happy and sad. Happy because she sees that for him it is the beginning, and sad because she knows it is already over.

. . .

Sofi: When I saw you that night, I… I had the feeling that I had known you. Actually, I felt like you knew me.

Ian: What do you mean?

Sofi: Like we are connected from past lives.

Ian: I don’t believe in that.

Sofi: What do you believe in?

Ian: I’m a scientist. I believe in data.

. . .

Sofi: How many senses do worms have?

Ian: They have two. Smell and touch. Why?

Sofi: So… they live without any ability to see or even know about light, right? The notion of light to them is unimaginable.

Ian: Yeah.

Sofi: But we humans… we know that light exists. All around them… right on top of them… they cannot sense it. But with a little mutation, they do. Right?

Ian: Correct.

Sofi: So… Doctor Eye… perhaps some humans, rare humans… have mutated to have another sense. A spirit sense. And can perceive a world that is right on top of us… everywhere. Just like the light on these worms.

Sofi: Why are you working so hard to disprove God?

. . .

Priya Varma: You know a scientist once asked the Dalai Lama, “What would you do if something scientific disproved your religious beliefs?” And he said, after much thought, “I would look at all the papers. I’d take a look at all the research and really try to understand things. And in the end, if it was clear that the scientific evidence disproved my spiritual beliefs, I would change my beliefs.”

Ian: That’s a good answer.

Priya Varma: Ian… what would you do if something spiritual disproved your scientific beliefs?
