In an unexpected evolution of conversation, Matt and Sean find themselves discussing what’s oft considered the fundamental question of existence: “What does it mean to be?” In a snob meandering through ideas related to The Matrix, The Truman Show, human consciousness, Richard Linklater, our constructions of reality, Starship Troopers, and 2001: A Space Odyssey, we soon break new ground into such topics as Nietzsche's Thus Spoke Zarathustra, Heidegger's Being and Time, smartphones, paradigm shifts, Infinite Jest, and Ken Wilber. Can film be art? Should film be art? Can film save the world? How the heck did Independence Day: Resurgence lead us here? We may never know. Yet as we evolve, transcending and including what hath come before, so we delve deeper into the infinite realm of snobbery, following its wonderful directions wherever they may lead.
