“I’ve seen things you people wouldn’t believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched C-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhauser gate. All those moments will be lost in time… like tears in rain… Time to die.”
–Roy Batty, “Blade Runner”
As you may or may not have heard, legendary cult actor Rutger Hauer recently passed away. The same year as the fictional character he is most famous for portraying.
To be clear, Hauer had a marvelous career spanning over 4 decades, appearing in everything from Ladyhawke to The Hitcher to Blind Fury (a personal fave) To Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind, Batman Begins, and Hobo With A Shotgun (another fun cult movie if you’re a fan of the actor).
But replicant Roy Batty was clearly Hauer’s most famous role. Per Blade Runner, Batty died in…2019. The same year as the actor who played him.
I’ve discussed the idea of Hypersigils on this site before. It’s when the fictional/artistic entity and the real-life person who portrayed or created it sort of…synchronistically “merge.”
It is the idea that there are quantum resonances between these two realms, that of fantasy and reality. A concept that the author of the “original” Blade Runner, Philip K. Dick, was quite fascinated with himself. For example, Dick would cite real-life occurrences which happened to him later in life that mirrored exactly scenes from his books.
What does it all **mean**???
Well, it depends on your particular reality tunnel. You might feel these coincidences are nothing more than that–meaningless coincidences. Or you might feel there is some “divine” connection. Or feel that there’s nothing divine or metaphysical at all about it…instead, it involves a type of quantum physics we haven’t fully understood yet.
Do you want to know what I personally think about all this???
I tend to think it’s a natural aspect of quantum physics, with a hint of possible (subjective) “spiritual” meaning as well.
But what do I know?
