And I was afraid. She frightens me because she can knock me down with a word. Because she does not know that writing is walking on a dizzying silence setting one word after the other on emptiness. Writing is miraculous and terrifying like the flight of a bird who has no wings but flings itself out and only gets wings by flying.

Parallels #5346725467 in WINGS: Reflection

Someone fling me into the sun, I’m so done with bighit. 

I know I’m being dramatic, but asgdhsagdfhjsakgf to bring in Danger era, AGAIN? Come on. 

 Anyways, lets begin. 

Here is our first parallel between Reflection and RUN mv, the freight cart. The fact that bighit wanted to replicate the same train freight cart with the exact numbers has to mean something, right? 

Well if you think about it, in RUN the opening to the freight cart leads to a house full of welcoming, fun, and happiness:

“It was a realm of brilliance, clarity, and cleanliness, gentle conversations, washed hands, clean clothes, and good manners”

But in this film, its just Namjoon alone:

“It was dominated by a loud mixture of horrendous, intriguing, frightful, mysterious things, including slaughterhouses and prisons, drunkards and screeching fishwives, calving cows, horses sinking to their death, tales of robberies, murders, and suicides.”

So could this be a representation of the two realms? Having friends (a companion) in one world vs yourself (the world of loneliness)? Maybe. 

Then we have this part which connects Jungkook’s film BEGIN with Rapmon’s REFLECTION, with the picture of the sparrow hawk.. 

You guys, in the novel Sinclair draws a picture of a sparrow hawk and sends it to Demian.. and Jungkook is placing the same photo into an envelope..

“I decided, however–in the same state of dreamlike presentiment in which I did everything–to send him the painting of the sparrow hawk, even if it would never reach him.”

Now this could mean two things: that a) rapmon is a representation of Demain or that b) he is a representation of Sinclair. Personally I think he’s both. Here’s why:

Here is an example of where I believe he’s Sinclair because in the novel Sinclair talks about becoming one with Demain/the hawk. 

“I had long since become used to my loneliness–that did not oppress me: I lived with Demian, the sparrow hawk, with the mighty apparition of my dream that was both my fate and my beloved.”

Is he not by himself when he tattoo’s this on himself? And the fact that Sinclair states this after he has been painting to try and bring himself back to the world of “light”, and using bright colors to paint the face of Beatrice, doesn’t that seem a bit straightforward then? The subconscious thought of Demain.. is what is helping him try to be above the waters? 

ALSO, Here you have him looking at himself in a mirror— reflection.  

You guys the moment I saw that the short film was called reflection I screamed and legit flipped over my laptop is because the last line of the book Sinclair talks about mirrors. 

But sometimes when I find the key and climb deep into myself where the images of fate lie aslumber in the dark mirror, I need only bend over that dark mirror to behold my own image, now completely resembling him, my brother, my master.

In hard times you look back, and remember to remain strong.

But then here’s an example that he could be Demian in this heart wrenching scene relating prologue, stigma, and reflection. sdgashjdkgsahjfkgsda i cried.

As mentioned before, when Sinclair is in trouble he calls out for Demian at the end of the book.. So could then rapmon be tae’s demain?

“Little Sinclair, listen: I will have to go away. Perhaps you’ll need me again sometime, against Kromer or something. If you call me then I won’t come crudely, on horseback or by train… You’ll have to listen within yourself, then you will notice that I am within you.”

Reflection + Begin

Beginning to reflect on yourself? A stride towards independence? 

Idek anymore. Someone just fling me into the sun.

Splashing Droplets Can Take Off Like Airplanes

by Patricia Waldron, Inside Science

When a drop of liquid hits a solid surface, the liquid will do one of two things: flatten like a pancake or launch a halo of droplets into the air. It’s a surprisingly complex and difficult-to-predict event.   

The secret is in the air. By taking into account the gas surrounding the drop, researchers find that they can calculate just how fast a drop can travel without splattering when it hits. A new study suggests that after the drop strikes a solid surface,  a tiny cushion of air carries along its edge as it spreads. The air provides lift like on an airplane wing and flings away droplets from the drop’s edge.
