(Filming is in progress. This is a preview of the short film)

I look up to your son
I stand with your chosen one
I conquer nature
and I dance with your villain

Who are you?
Three thousand years of your existence
No amount of medicine... 
...can match your violence

Who are you? 

He: nothing
A quest on the philosophy of life and death. 

Autophagy is a starvation-activated “self-eating” process that happens on a cellular level in the brain and the body in which old cells are continuously destroyed and recycled for the renewal of new cells. On a philosophical level, if the brain and the mind are inseparable entities, could the same mechanics exist in the mind and be seen as the “cleansing” and “renewal” of dead thoughts, at least metaphorically? If so, when and how does the mind decide what is old, unuseful, or dead? Perhaps none of these matter except for the attitude one takes to one's own freedom and responsibility in the process, and the extent to which one acts in accordance with this freedom.

As this is an exploration of the mind, I invite you to experience every image and sound with your mind, mindfully. 

"लोकः समस्ताः सुखिनो भवन्तु"  
May all beings in all the worlds be free and happy
