Lucy is a 2014 English movie written and directed by Luc Besson. It stars Scarlett Johansson in the lead role. The film was released on July 25, 2014, and became a box office success. Lucy is an attempt to show “what if our brain achieved 100% efficiency?” The movie is about a woman, Lucy playing the protagonist. Due to an accident, Lucy acquires the ability to activate the dormant, unused portions of her brain resulting in superhuman powers. Lucy acquires enhanced physical/mental abilities such as telepathy, telekinesis, mental time travel, and can choose not to feel pain or fear. She develops the ability to see the living cells of trees. Moving beyond the need of body, Lucy transforms into energy and becomes part of the universe. At the end of the movie her body gets disintegrated and she disappears as she is everywhere – analogous to being God. The movie gives the viewer an ample food for thought.
If we humans actually reach 100% of our brain capacity, we no longer need our bodies as we will be able to transmute beyond them with a new understanding of all existence through our new found powers.
It is generally believed that we use only 10 % of capability of our brain. If humans could achieve 100% efficiency then they may develop certain abilities as below.
- Ability to suppress pain
- Acquire telekinetic powers
- Feel even littlest vibrations
- Understand supersonic frequencies.
- See light at broader spectrum
- Can hear radio frequencies with ears
- Can manipulate speed and flow of time
The core idea of this movie is based on Idealism and Occultism. Just as different combinations of the same genetic information create different results; different ranges of consciousness and different social perceptions allow us to see things in a renewed way. If someone uses 100% of his brain capacity, he will be able to do God-like things and certainly become a God.
