what is it, do you think, that we see reflected in this submarine’s eyes? is it remorse, accrued through a life in service to Cold War military adventurism? is it a yearning for freedom?
every pulse of active sonar kills thousands of living things, somewhere down the line. even the noise and pressure of propellers cause damage to sensitive biological systems underwater. this is a thing incapable of existing without spilling blood, created to destroy the entire world, glimpsed in a rare moment where it is not destroying life. what expression does it have? is it relief? is it regret? no. it is tedium. it is an unsatisfied and total lust for murder. this submarine is humanity. this submarine is hell

The Red Shoes (1948), dir. Powell & Pressburger.
The ellipse AB at the base of the cone is totality of memory. Point S is the body, the self, in contact with the present (shown as the plane P). This is how time is experienced, through the mechanism of memory Bergson describes. Time is not linear, but amorphous and in flux. The past exists concurrently with the present and each point in the future splits into a present that passes and a past that is preserved, without this there could be no motion through time: time would not move if the present could not pass.
