Our Freedom – What it really means

The Constitution of the United States

Freedom – How important is our freedom? What does our freedom really mean to us today? 

To really understand how important our freedom is, we must understand the sacrifices our founding fathers went through. 

OUR HISTORICAL PATH 

Historically in North America, Canada and United States have both fought wars, for the right to preserve our freedom of rights and the Constitution. Americans used physical force in the War of 1812 ( the American Revolution ) against the British, as Canada used their political advantage by a process of uniting the British colonies of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into one Dominion of Canada on July 1, 1867.

The Constitution of Canada started as an agreement during the 1863 Treaty of Paris.

In this treaty, it stated France will freely give up the New France to Great Britain 🇬🇧. Even though the Dominion of Canada was the beginning to a new formed government of Canada, it really didn’t break the British monarchy until the Constitution Act of 1982, where Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau made an agreement with Queen Elizabeth II, who signed the Proclamation of the Constitution Act, 1982, in Ottawa on 17 April 1982. 

It was then the Charter of Rights and Freedoms legally came into effect. Before 1982 we were still under the grips of British laws.

Throughout history, United States and Canada have fought together, desperately to keep us free from radical ideology and dictatorship. 

TODAYS FREEDOM 

United States of America and Canada are held closely together by the people of its nation, with strong values respecting freedom of our rights and a way of life. We both hold fast to our beliefs of freedom and what it stands for.  

That symbol isn’t more apparent then the Statue of Liberty in Liberty Island New York, NY. 

As quoted on the United States National Park Service website,”The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World” was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the United States and is recognized as a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886. It was designated as a National Monument in 1924.” 

In Canada 🇨🇦 we too have a Monument of Freedom.

It not only is a display of freedom, but it also has a significant meaning to the sacrifice made by all Canadians who have died for our country.  

It’s called the National War Memorial, located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.  

The symbol of Peace and Freedom is displayed on the top of the arch, featuring a Roman mythology to Demeter, along with a winged figure portrait, symbolizing the Greek goddesses Nike. In the middle of arch depicts the bronze sculpture of the Canadian men and women who have sacrificed their lives since WWI. On Remembrance Day, Canadians pay tribute in remembrance to our fallen military soldiers, who have protected us from harm, to ensure our Charter of Rights and Freedoms. 

Today’s freedom is shared across the world, with a formed United Nations laying out the UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles, covering the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organization’s Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the United Nations Convention Against Corruption.

AND – 

In Canada and United States, we are truly blessed to be able to work together in a peaceful goal towards a strong friendly relationship, striving forward to the betterment of mankind.  

Each hold us together towards our shared goal, the Liberty of Freedom. 

And this I hold true to my heart, as Liberty symbolizes the philosophy of free will, meaning everyone deserves the freedom of speech, the freedom of choice, the freedom to enjoy life, no matter your status, colour or race. 

I’m thankful for my freedom so little seen in this world today.  

Because of my freedom I’ve received a good education, a place to call home and a safe environment to raise my family. 

I’m grateful my country protects us from harm. 

The freedom of choice WOW! I never take this freedom lightly and I hope you never do either. 

I hope you will take the time to remember the sacrifices of the men and women on November 11, who have paid dearly to enable us to enjoy our freedom.

We all have a choice and voice to ensure the freedom we so enjoy.

Never ever take your freedom lightly. Always stand up for who or what you believe in, even if it means to rally a peaceful protest. Your ancestors expect it! They didn’t die for nothing, they died protecting our freedom. For God sakes ! Never let anyone or government ever take that right away from you. 

I’m not American, I am a proud Canadian, but I dearly hold close to my heart these words…WE THE PEOPLE… 

These three words expresses the power of the union of the people and what the people of the nation can do together! 

The Constitution of the United States goes like this : 

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. Read more…

Very powerful statement. 

I also hold true to “In Flanders Fields” a poem written by Canadian physician Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae, during WWI. 

In Flanders fields the poppies blow

Between the crosses, row on row,

That mark our place: and in the sky

The larks still bravely singing fly

Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead: Short days ago,

We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,

Loved and were loved: and now we lie

In Flanders fields!
Take up our quarrel with the foe

To you, from failing hands, we throw

The torch: be yours to hold it high

If ye break faith with us who die,

We shall not sleep, though poppies grow

In Flanders fields

Our Freedom at a price.  Too much blood has been spilled to ignore the sacrifices.  Please respect and hold your freedom close to your heart. Without that freedom, we have nothing to stand for, as a country, a nation, or as a civilization.  

We Stand on Guard for Thee…

Never hide in fear and always fight for your freedom.  We aren’t robots, We are human beings.

Westworld – The Adversary speaks to the Fans 

Canadian Version of Westworld Gamer interactive Clues
Warning : Spoiler Alert for the TV Series Westworld 2016. 

OMG ! Did you see what I saw ?!  In Episode 6 – The Adversary ? 

Bernard heads down to Level 82 to further investigate the GPS coordinates of the estranged (stray) host. Leading into the darkness of the security level, his light beams across the forgotten past of so long ago. Inadvertently, his four-pack flashlight beams onto a past android model, which ( if you saw the 1973 movie) resembles the form of the original MiB, Yul Brenner. It’s slight and so cleverly done, it quickly imposes the idea of the old robot played by the famous Yul Brenner. 

Brilliant! Just Brilliant! 

Westworld
As a writer I would love to see the teleplay of each episode of Westworld. Creators Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy are spot on, leading us viewers deep down into one of the most science-fiction thrillers in a long time. 

I mean, I’m hooked ! 

We’re only into the 6th episode and it’s blown away my expectations. So far, the TV Series offers an exemplary storyline, edging us forward into a deeper maze of wondrous exhilaration. I’m sure Michael Crichton would be impressed by the remake of his 1976 film. 

Truly, we’re into the WOW factor! 

The fact, Johnathan Nolan took Westworld one step further, releasing an interactive role game version, where guests play out their desires and fantasies, is in itself a cool adaptation from the original film.  

AND the cast members – whoa! 

A well thought out execution of brilliant actors, from my favourite @Anthony Hopkins to Jeffery Wright (@jfreewright) Ed Harris @evanrachelwood @jimmisimpson @benbarnes @thandienewton @AngelaSarafyan @shannonwoodward @Louis_Herthum, James Marsden, Luke Hemsworth (@Hemsdog), Sidse Babett Knudsen and list goes on ! 

The direction of each role carries the storyline forward with drama and suspense. Suspenseful when Elsie Hughes ( played by talented Shannon Woodward) digs up hidden clues and becomes abducted by (I believe) Arnold. Before taken, she warns Bernard that his lover, Theresa Cullen (the parks terse operations leader) may be responsible for smuggling out data from the uplink hardware. 

Remember Arnold? 

Dr Ford’s partner who supposedly died over 34 years ago, is continuously mentioned throughout the story. To me, it appears he’s going to make his entrance in Episode 7. 

Well ? That’s my conjecture anyway. 

It’s also revealed Dr Ford has an old family of hosts, completely out of circulation, specifically for Dr Ford’s enjoyment. Bernard’s previous investigation lead him to a home setting in the far area of the park, discovering Dr Ford’s secret. Surprisingly to Bernard, he has no control over these older host models. Strictly operated by the whim of Dr. Ford. Bernard is deeply concerned for his mentor and friend. 

Oh boy!  

The plot surely is stirring thicker and thicker, into a bloody evil of darkness and despair 😩.  

Oh ! We can’t forget about madam Maeve either (played by the wonderful actress, @thandienewton), who has now achieved awareness beyond the fantasy of Westworld Park.  She cleverly entices worker Felix, to help her achieve a smarter program and explore the real world outside Westworld. At first, Maeve is taken back by the fact she’s nothing more then an android, programmed by a set of linear programs. But with her new upgrade (increasing her robotics intelligence), it will be very interesting to see where she goes from here. 

The new and improved Westworld is indeed intriguing and I can’t wait to see what happens next Sunday ! @WestworldHBO by Johnathan Nolan and @lisajoynolan, @bad_robot ( J. J. Abrams)

Westworld Theories – The Analogy of Dr Ford



Warning : Spoiler Alert for the TV Series Westworld 2016. 

Speculation has gone wild, as fans try to unravel the mystery of Westworld, rampant with their own theories. We humans are pushing the envelope, thinking outside the “loop”. Pun intended 😉

Here’s my screenwriter’s perception outlined with the main characters on Westworld. 

Today’s blog is about, who I think, Dr Robert Ford is. 

DR ROBERT FORD 

Dr Ford is the best in the west! (pun intended). And there’s the key. He’s a very calculated precise human, or shall I presume to say, Dr. Robert Ford is too human. 

We know in the chronological timeline, according to the interactive dialogue between Delores and Dr Ford. 

DIALOGUE 

Dr Ford,”When was your last contact with Arnold?”

Delores,” Last contact, 34 years, 42 days, 7 hours ago.”

Dr Ford,”Yes Delores, the day Arnold died.” He pauses and then says,” And you have no records of any contacts of him since?” 

Delores,” No.” 

Dr Ford,” What was the last thing he said to you?”

Delores,” He told me I was going to help him.” 

Dr. Ford,” Help him do what?” 

Delores,” To destroy this place.” 

Dr Ford,” But you didn’t, did you?”

Dr Ford goes on to say that nothing has become of those instructions, pointing out Delores has been content with her “loop” for the last 34 years.  

Dr Ford looks concerned, very concerned. He continues,” That’s enough Delores. Yes…I’m sorry to bothering you, but …there’s no one else left who was there, no one that understands, as we understand.” 

Delores program picks up on this.

Delores,” Are we…very old friends?” 

Dr Ford,” No. I wouldn’t say friends Delores. I wouldn’t say that atall.” ( spelled correctly as per slang) 

At this point, it looks like Dr Ford wipes a tear from his eye, gets up and leaves, before anyone can see his emotion. 

When Dr Ford leaves, it’s then Delores stares blankly ahead and says,”He doesn’t know. I didn’t tell him anything.” 

This dialogue proves three important points : 

  1. Dr Ford and Delores are the only ones who knows anything about their secret past life.
  2. Delores is as old as Dr Ford, with both being there from the very beginning . 
  3. Delores is being guided by someone else or some thing. 

To me it appears, it’s possible, Dr Robert Ford is a prototype designed by robotics scientists, Arnold. In essence, Arnold is Dr Ford’s protégé, who crafted a specialized android from the very beginning. 

It’s known from past episodes, Arnold was an eccentric brilliant robotics (way ahead of his time) engineer who would closely resemble the behaviour of mogul pioneer Howard Hughes.  

Arnold would alienate himself from the public, in order to produce a robotic humanoid unlike any other robot he’s ever made before. His task was to make an android who could appear and act in every way a human can. You might say he’s a step up from what Delores was. 

In the beginning androids were sloppy mechanical beasts with a set program. Arnold wanted something more, but he knew it couldn’t do it by himself. He needed an advanced android, a prototype capable of thinking as android’s do. Essentially, the android would help him rebuild the sloppy mechanical beasts, using a linear thought, only another android could possibly do. To think of it in another way, consider how we have automated robots who can only make a precise computer chip.

Humans aren’t as capable as a robot is. 

BUT – Before the recreational park, Westworld was about to open, Arnold didn’t calculate in his equation, his prototype android would think of his creator as inferior.

The creator was imperfect or humanly flawed. 

Over 35 years ago, just as Arnold was ready to open the Westworld Park, a terrible thing happened. Like a restaurant, the park opened as a “dry-run” inviting esteemed guests, such as the MiB. A small group of VIP rich guests and investors came to experience this recreational park for the first time.  

During this opening event, Arnold introduced his prototype android as his partner, Dr Ford. As far as the MiB was concerned, Dr Ford was indeed his partner.
Unknown to Arnold, Dr Ford had programmed the robots to revolt and kill the invited guests, including Arnold.  

Remember, Dr Ford thought of his protégé, Arnold as inferior. 

In the end, I believe the opening of Westworld didn’t go as planned, as hosts killed off their guests. And this is where the MiB comes in. He saved other guests from the chaos, but failed to save Arnold, himself. But there was still hope for the MiB, because Arnold’s body was never found. And since that time, almost 35 years ago, the MiB’s quest has been to search for evidence of Arnold, through what he believes to be the underworld known as The MAZE. The maze where Arnold may be located. 

Unknown to the MiB, he still doesn’t realize Dr Ford is an android yet, but he does wonder. This was proven in the dialogue interactions of Dr Ford, the MiB and Teddy. 

In Episode 5 – Contrapasso

DIALOGUE 

Dr Robert Ford confronts the MiB, expressing his control over the Park, which really doesn’t faze the MiB. Instead the MiB says,” How I’m doing Robert? Any closer to finding what I’m looking for?”

Dr Ford,” What is that…exactly?” 

Teddy interrupts by saying they’re looking for a man named Wyatt. It appears, MiB isn’t impressed with the new narrative of Wyatt and says,”…is he just another stooge for the tourist to mount on their wall at home or have you made a worthy adversary? Someone to stop me from finding the centre of the maze.” 

Dr Ford,” And what are you hoping to find there?”

MiB,” … I think there’s a deeper meaning, hiding under all that, something a person who created it, wanted to express…something true.” 

Dr Ford,”Well, if you’re looking for the moral of the story, just simply ask.”
MiB,” I need a shovel…man I’d be asking died 35 years ago, almost took this place with him, almost but not quite, thanks to me. But maybe he left something behind.” 

As the MiB takes out his long knife about to find the answers within the belly of Dr Ford, his loyal pet,Teddy grabs the knife with his bare hands. He stops the MiB from getting close to Dr Ford and most possible finding answers to the TRUTH
And so, there you have it.  

Is Dr Robert Ford a creation by Arnold ? And, if so, is Delores being guided by Arnold after all ?   

Remember Programmer, Elsie Hughes ? 

It appears her paranoia has paid off. She finds a laser based satellite uplink component in the arm of the last host, thinking of possible spies. Maybe it’s the creativity of Arnold and his backup plan to destroy what he created. 

Join me in the quest of finding the answers to Westworld in my gamers manual of Westworld – updated after each episode to reveal new clues. And, if you have any clues , please share it with us here. We loved to hear your theory too.

My next Analogy will be the MiB Theory – follow me here for updates.

Westworld – The MiB Theory

Warning : Spoiler Alert for the TV Series Westworld 2016. 

Following up from my last theory regarding Dr Robert Ford of Westworld I approached a scene interaction with the MiB and Dr Ford towards the end.  Please have a look at it HERE

Otherwise I will assumed you have read it. Carrying on with the MiB ( Man-in-Black) on Westworld, I wanted to give some key points and clues in regards to the MiB. 
From my previous discussions on the MiB, we can already conclude the MiB is NOT William from the past. We are going to go on the linear theory where the MiB is the oldest gamer, since Westworld opened over 34 years ago. 

We also understand the MiB is looking for the TRUTH within the MAZE. The maze is the centre of the truth revealing the whole game. But the truth we seek, may lead us into a more darker path of evil. 

You know the old phrase,” Be careful what you wish for, it just may become true.” 

Interesting, we now know, the MiB saved the park from some disaster where Arnold had died, over 34 years ago. The MiB had also started a Foundation for, (I believe) his daughter. We now know his foundation is popular in the real world as we learn from a couple of fans who approached him, trying to compliment the foundation for saving one of the fans sister. 

It’s been speculated the Foundation could possibly be related to Westworld somehow, and just maybe his Foundation offers a cure for loved ones sure to die ( perhaps by a deadly disease) by inadvertently giving their loved ones a new body, with their consciousness in tact. In fact, they’re suggesting the MiB is providing a copy of their loved ones by the use of the 3D printer you see in the beginning teaser of the show. 

In order for this to be true, it would mean the MiB, Dr Ford and Arnold worked together, from the very beginning.

Also, with the MiB saving the park from disaster, there’s a clue here, where we are lead to believe it’s Arnold’s fault. Apparently he wanted to destroy the park before it started, but I’m sure we are lead down the wrong path. Again, if you read my last blog you’ll realize, it’s possible Dr Robert Ford is Arnold’s prototype android.  

Whatever may be the case, we are surely being lead down the rabbit’s hole by Alice in Wonderland. The dark path of illusions, misconceptions and deceit, mixed with an artificial consciousness deep within the androids, could lead to certain chaos

It’s an awakening! 

MiB DIALOGUE 

“A man named Arnold was the original settler of these parts. He created a world where you can do anything you want, but you can’t die. No matter how real this world seems it’s still just a game. But then Arnold broke his own rule. He died right here in the park, except I believe he had one story left to tell. A story with real stakes, real violence. You could say I’m here to honor his legacy.” 

By Bari Demersscreenwriter and freelance writer 

Westworld – Purgatorio To Hell?

Westworld- the new reality
Episode 5 – Contrapasso

Westworld Worldly quirks are indeed beginning to take a turning point with Episode 5.  

It begins with Dr Robert Ford (played by esteem actor, Sir Anthony Hopkins ) telling a story about his childhood greyhound pet (who after years of chasing a piece of felt on a stick) was set free from his collar, only to chase down a stray cat and kill it in the most horrific way. 

Dialogue: Dr Ford,”…to the horror of everyone, he killed that little cat, tore it to pieces…and then he just sat there…confused. That dog has spent its whole life, trying to catch that…thing. Now it had no idea what to do.” 

We can relate this scene as a metaphor, setting us up with our relationship to Delores, (the oldest robotics host) whose been caught in a continuous loop, outlined by her program. It’s apparent Delores will finally breakout of her loop, inadvertently reprogrammed by an outside source. 

We are lead to believe, this outside source appears to point to Arnold, (past partner of Dr Ford) who unfortunately died in the park, over 34 years ago. It’s the exact same source, triggering the MiB ( Man in Black) to search for the maze. It’s clear, Delores and the MiB will both find their freedom when they reach the end of the maze. In fact, you could say they’re on a mission to find the truth. 

BUT – Dr Ford is not amused 😒.

You get this impression, even though Dr Ford appears to be seemingly at ease with complete control over his world ( Westworld) on the outside, it appears underneath, there’s an increasingly disturbed feeling, stirring within him. We get this impression, it’s quite possible, Dr Ford is hiding something and trying with all his might to prevent the past from revealing itself. 

His arrogance of power is truly evident. 

Is Dr Ford concerned of what might happen if the truth gets out? Will the same thing happen to the humanoid robots, getting loose and finally taking revenge on its guests, in the most horrific way? 

Of course, these are assumptions, and we can’t really say where the writers are taking us, only that we’re intrigued by this most amazing adventure of Westworld

In Scene Two, I would like to point out where Delores is, in the middle of a graveyard.  Does it have any significance to the rest of the story ? Was the close-up scene of the countless bells resting on the rows of wood crosses, a small teaser of things to come? 

Did you know the reason behind the bells tied to the crosses?  

In the earlier days of the Wild West, it was a possibility to mistakenly pronounce someone dead and bury them in haste, when in fact they weren’t. So in lieu of this mistake, they use to place small crafted metal or ceramic bells on the crosses, with a string ( or chain) attached to each bell, leading down inside the coffin of the presumed dead. This way, if the person inside the coffin came back to life, they still had that last chance to grab that chain (attached to the bell) and ring it to warn others, that they had just been buried alive. 

Whoa! Can you imagine being buried alive by mistake?!

Anyway, moving along…

While Delores is standing in the middle of this grave, she hears a whispering voice, that says,” Find me!” She closes her eyes saying,” Show me how?” A whirlwind of images come to light, but quickly she’s broken out of the trace by where she is.  

William asks her,” Are you alright?” 

Delores says,” Of course. Did I do something wrong?” 

William, “Just earlier…I thought you were talking to someone?” 

Delores smiles,” Must of been the wind.” 

It’s certain Delores is following her loop pattern( to a point), but at the same time, is secretly seeking out answers to the questions. She hasn’t completely trusted William, as of yet. 

William is also fighting his personal demons as he finally meets head-to-head with his arrogant brother-in-law, Logan. Without going into ever scene, let’s just say William has had enough of his brother-in-law and after going down the path with Logan’s wishes, including the Wild West Orgy, William finally breaks loose from Logan’s grips, telling Delores,” It’s a sick game and I don’t want to be part of it.” 

This scene is directed victoriously by (I’m assuming) a women’s touch (possibly written by Lisa Joy herself ) as Delores expresses herself to William. 
Delores, “…but together…( in tears, embracing William ) I know we can find a way out.” 

William,” How can you be sure?” 

Delores,” There’s a voice inside of me, telling me what I have to do. And it’s telling me I need you!” 

Followed by a passionate kiss. You know that kiss. It’s the kiss where you know you have met your soul mate? Yup – that kiss. 😳  

On that note I think Executives Producers Jonathan Nolan, his wife Lisa Joy and J. J. Abrams must be ecstatic with the growing success of the new Westworld. It may of just been coincidence, but the interaction of actors Jimmi Simpson ( playing William) and Evan Rachel Wood (playing Dolores) have both hit it, right on the mark. You can feel the chemistry as it happens.

This indeed is good acting! 

As soon as Delores and William take on this most powerful scene, suddenly all hell breaks loose. William thankfully leaves Logan to fend for himself, taking off with the beautiful Delores. 

Meanwhile…

Interesting, our rising star, Elsie Hughes (Westworld’s Programmer) determination has finally paid off. She finds a laser based satellite uplink component in the arm of the last host who attacked her( in the pervious episode). It appears her paranoia is warranted after all, and further investigation by her and Bernard will most probably happen in Episode 6. 

Elsie confirms Bernard was right after all and says,” …Orion Belt has three stars, not four. Our friend wasn’t drawing stars…it was drawing a target. Someone has been using our host to smuggle that out of the park.” 

Earlier it’s probable, Delores may have found the same components in her arm, but we aren’t sure if it was a dream or reality. 

The next powerful scene…

Dr Robert Ford also confronts the MiB, expressing his control over the Park, which really doesn’t faze the MiB. Instead the MiB says,” How I’m doing Robert? Any closer to finding what I’m looking for?”

Dr Ford,” What is that…exactly?” 

Teddy interrupts by saying they’re looking for a man named Wyatt.

It appears, MiB isn’t impressed with the new narrative of Wyatt and says,”…is he just another stooge for the tourist to mount on their wall at home or have you made a worthy adversary? Someone to stop me from finding the centre of the maze.” 

Dr Ford,” And what are you hoping to find there?”

MiB,” … I think there’s a deeper meaning, hiding under all that, something a person who created it, wanted to express…something true.” 

Dr Ford,”Well, if you’re looking for the moral of the story, just simply ask.”

MiB,” I need a shovel…man I’d be asking died 35 years ago, almost took this place with him, almost but not quite, thanks to me. But maybe he left something behind.” 

As the MiB takes out his long knife about to find the answers within the belly of Dr Ford, his loyal pet,Teddy grabs the knife with his bare hands. This simply move makes me wonder if Dr Ford is indeed human after all ? Just maybe he too is an android. An interesting concept to plunder about, as we keep watching Westworld. 

Let’s note here : This scene is why some viewers think William and the MiB may so happen be the same person. The timeline is obviously mixed, to confuse us, but did William turn into the MiB over time ? William originally entered Westworld with a “white hat” with the impression to add the good back into humanity. I get this idea, the real world (outside the park) has turned into this most evil place. Don’t you think actor Ed Harris makes the prefect MiB? 

Finally –

On top of everything else, Maeve has confronted her demons too, as she awakes to one of the engineers, “Hello Felix…its time you and I had a chat.” 

Whoa! Nice way to end episode 5. 

The cast, the director and producers have certainly worked hard to make Westworld the most intriguing science fiction thriller TV series, ever! You can tell each actor was carefully picked to create such an awesome story.  Checkout for more clues

BTW – I still think Westworld is on a world all by itself and hopefully in the next season, we just may find ourselves on another planet with a new amusement park…let’s say Roman world
Also, the meaning of Contrapasso relates to the punishment of souls in Dante’s Inferno, referring to Purgatorio. Isn’t that amazing ! Pay close attention to the headings. They too provide some interesting clues.  Is Westworld Purgatory?
