A Universe Trapped in a Labyrinth

This is my boring and interesting and teenager life spanning from age 15 to 18 (May 2015-August 2018)
Within you'll find many re-inventions of myself, boy trouble, school trouble and life trouble. (Plus interesting bits I thought I would include as well).
Do you dare to enter the maze?

83. To be immortal...

 

25th October 2014

To be immortal isn’t to live forever; it is to watch everybody else die.

If you’re a geek like me you would recognise that quote as a somewhat loose translation to Doctor Who.

The most recent episodes brings to life the complexities and difficulties of being immortal – to watch your loved ones and children die while you continue to live, to fell completely alone in a world where all you think of yourself is an instrument of death and not as an instrument of love.

This is one such reason why I love the show and more are…

The regenerations – which is probably how the show has carried on so brilliantly for over 50 years but I could have done with at least half of them being David Tennant! The action. The spin offs. The Tardis – the ability of having something being bigger on the inside and being the tool which transports all of us to many different time zones and planets is something spectacular.

However, there were some parts of it which dragged me down a little:

Plot holes… Story arcs that could have been explored more but was left with pointless endings. Somewhat predictable times.

Nevertheless being a Time Lord/Lady must be hard what with the power of saving people but losing so many more, and travelling the world as an endless adventure with enemies, battles and few companions. Sometimes, I actually wonder – what would it be like to travel time for a day? Where would I go?

I don’t really know the answer to those questions, no doubt I would leave it up to my instincts which would make a decision in seven seconds. But what I do know is that in some form Doctor Who has shaped what I do and think in my life.

Doctor Who has told me that:

“I am and always will be the optimist. The hoper of far-flung hopes and the dreamer of improbable dreams” - Eleventh Doctor

“In 900 years of time and space, I’ve never met anyone who wasn’t important” - Eleventh Doctor

“Books! The best weapons in the world!” - Tenth Doctor

You don’t just give up. You don’t just let things happen. You make a stand! You say no! You have the guts to do what’s right, even when everyone else just runs away” – Rose Tyler

Let me tell you about scared. Your heart is beating so hard -- I can feel it through your hands! There's so much blood and oxygen pumping through your brain, it's like rocket fuel. Right now, you could run faster and you could fight harder. You can jump higher than ever in your life. And you are so alert, it's like you can slow down time. What's wrong with scared? Scared is a super power! It's your super power!" - The Twelfth Doctor.

 

We can’t always be a traveler in a blue police box but we can be so much more than that.
