Meditation through Simple Forms, 17 November 2006
Author: DrMulholland from Denmark

This is an truly incredible short film! I was watching this film online and being really interested. It's a really avant-garde-piece only cutting between a man in a room and some waves in different colors - and the sound being just this one tune turned on and off all the time. But somehow this repeated theme caught my attention in some strange way.

But that's not just it. Somehow I felt like leaving my own body. Like the film hypnotized me. The routine must have given me such great trust in the film, that I almost forgot I was watching a film! Because nothing happened and still it made me feel weird inside. It was a really creepy experience but meanwhile also extremely fascinating.

This simple film somehow got me into a state of deep meditation without me even noticing. A truly incredible experience!
