Plot Summary

I Origins begins when graduate student, Ian Gray, is researching the evolution of human eyes with Karen and Kenny, in order to prove that eyes have evolved instead of "appeared" as creationists claim. His fascination with eyes takes him into areas that have profound personal and cultural consequences. Written by Nebzyl and Blue Coronet

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia For a brief moment in the opening credits only the letters I and O are shown in the movie title. This gives "IOII". In binary the number 1011 translates as eleven which is an important number throughout the film. See more »
Goofs As a scientist, Ian should have known that he invalidated Salomina's test by both being the tester and knowing the "correct" answers: his eye movement, body language, etc. could have provided clues to Salomina which images to choose. To be valid, the test should have been done "double-blind" with the tester not knowing the correct answers; ideally this would have been by Priya who had both Salomina's trust and no prior knowledge of Sofi.

Quotes 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.
