The daughter of one of my besties started up a blog. Her first post is about a movie named Timer. For the full discussion please visit Ms. Ashlianne’s blog. Here are my thoughts (with a few revisions) on the movie with the tagline, “If a clock could count down to the moment you meet your soul mate, would you want to know?”

Truly a mind-blowing concept! I must see this movie.

Would I get a timer? I don’t think so. I don’t think I would ever trust it.

Would it show negative time? That is, would it tell you if you had already met your soul-mate, but he/she is long since gone from your life?

Does the timer take into consideration that everyone has a different idea of what a soul-mate is? What if you believe your soul-mate should be the lover you spend the rest of your life with but it turns out to be “just” a life-long best friend? Would you have passed on some really great relationships due to the misunderstanding?

What about beliefs about past lives? What if you weren’t meant to meet your soul-mate in this lifetime? Would you feel you were robbed if it never showed a time? Would you be questioning whether or not it was faulty your whole life, and whether you had missed him/her? Or what if you were meant to meet your soul-mate, but weren’t meant to spend the rest of your lives together? Meant To Be isn’t necessarily Meant To Be Forever. Would the timer count down to zero when you met this person but go blank again when they passed from your life, or would you be looking at those zeros for the rest of your life?

So many questions! Thanks for the discussion!
