The Great Encounter

Play Video

This is the story of two islands representing two desires of humankind: ultimate beauty and eternal life. Both islands are orbiting around the vast empty ocean of planet Earth. Their inhabitants are living in and adapting to their own belief systems of what beauty and perception of time is. As the islands meet, both belief systems with the introduction of “the different” collapse. A new belief system in a new reality emerges, on its part only existing until the next introduction of “the different.”

This is an excerpt of the story of the island of eternal life. In its storytelling it explores the principle of the twin paradox in special relativity.
