Jack, the Detective: [looking into microscope] Alright. What am I looking at?
Coroner: John Doe Number Two's brain. Took a .45 caliber bullet through the forehead. That is not human brain tissue. I mean I guess it could be it just doesn't look like any brain I've ever seen. The structure's so uniform, simple.

A Journey From Darkness to LIGHT!
22 March 2006 | by See all my reviews

What better way to depict the journey of an unenlightened state into a state of ENLIGHTENMENT. This episode has been my inspiration for 11 years and counting, since I first saw it back in '95! Is there anything so selfless? Watch this episode to find out what exactly I am talking about. Possibly these beings are from the inner earth, the heart of mankind.. the hollow place where ancient secrets are held. Maybe ascended masters from the center of space and time.

Caught in the middle of a struggle between right and wrong, good and evil. A man is presented with a guru, a guide.. a friend. When life seems to be at its end and the walls are closing in all around, will a second chance make a difference.. an opportunity to start new is only available to those who are able to see the opportunity. This episode is a battle between the inner struggles of selfishness and selflessness!

Definitely a must see episode for all those interested in the journey of life and its purpose. 50 Stars and 10 Thumbs up! - Solarstone 2012
