The Danger Room

Danger_Room_01.jpg

Are you familiar with that empty room? If you have ever watched a movie that tells you about abnormal beings living together in a massive mansion where there are school and jet inside along with bald professor on a wheel chair, then you have ever happened to see that picture. If it is still not really clear for you, here is another hint.

Now most of you might have recognized what Danger Room is, haven’t you? It is a huge simulation room where the mutants in X-Men practice to develop their abilities as mutants in the real battle situation. Usually there will be some senior mutants guide the younger ones during the training as you can see in the picture, there are Mystique and Beast with the young X-Men (Left to Right : Nighcrawler, Storm, Cyclops, Phoenix and Quick-Silver). The Danger Room is designed to have such super realistic sensation during the practice that you can feel the fear of dying and getting chased by The Sentinels. Now maybe I exaggerate it, but these two weeks, I think some of my professors are pushing us to the limit and I personally feels like they put us in Danger Room situation.

Never ending assignments of designing new techniques and developing some methods, daily presentations, reviews and so forth are coming endlessly. At first, it was totally normal to have one or two reports and presentations. Then I thought it would soon decreased, but once two papers’s done, there came other three out of somewhere! I am so triggered that I write another shitty twisted thought about this Danger Room analogy. Seriously, now, every time I enter the classroom, I imagine my professor as a gifted being who can read and control others’ mind and my friends and I as a noob young mutants seeking for clarity and wisdom in a room where your worst enemy will soon be summoned by the prof. The young mutants end up in a relentless regime of training that is painful yet effective. However, IT IS painful and it is not easy to satisfy the professor with our struggle.

I don’t know if either Charles Xavier, Hank McCoy or Raven Darkholme has a very high expectation that one of them find it difficult to appreciate the hard works of their disciples. Though my professors, some of them require us to think out of the skull to make them smile. Indeed, it is stressful. That’s one downs. However, I can say that with such force to accomplish many things at once, I unconsciously develop. Painfully develop.

Thus, like those young mutants in X-Men who frequently experience dying and extreme fear during simulation practice, I won’t stop though I suffer serious lack of sleep and worrying hair loss. In the end, these all will over and I will utilize what I have learnt during the Danger Room situation to make a better life for everyone. By the way, no offense, dear professor.

You Can Hire Them For Zombie Apocalypse

A friend once asked how in the world could I have my list of favorite MARVEL characters suitable to my MBTI? How could I idolize (mostly) characters with ENTP traits? I have no exact answer for this. Probably because those ENTPs share the same views as mine. However, it does not mean I ONLY like ENTPs when it comes to fictional characters. Though Wade Wilson, Tony Stark and Rocket Raccoon are my heroes, I also adore some others with various MBTI types.Here are the chosen five of non-ENTP fellows from MARVEL Universe alongside with their MBTI and my personal opinion about them.

  • Frank Castle (The Punisher) – INTJ

punisher-in-marvel-comics2

Frank was an ex-marine who got his entire family murdered in front of his face. More than it, he got a head-shot that,unfortunately, did not kill him. Since then, Frank turned into psychopathic badass who demanded revenge. I am not sure about his previous life when he was a loving husband and father, but The Punisher is an INTJ. Low tolerance, lack of emotion, hates inefficiency are several features of INTJ that you can see from this badass man-hunter. An INTJ is also original and pragmatic. You will see how Frank does not let emotional feelings interrupt his decision in doing his job terminating the targets. The only distractions for him are Dare Devil and NYPD. I am with Frank. You may kill the one who kill your loved ones, though. ‘Don’t get in my way, Red!

  • Charles Xavier (Prof. X) – ENFP

I shit you not, Charles is my favorite mutant after Wade. I mean, who does not want to control Cerebro and knows what common people do not know? If he was not shot on the spine and could use both of his leg normally, I could imagine how badass would he be. Anyway, Charles is passionate, optimistic and surprisingly care about others. At the first time he might look like an ordinary bald professor who is busy with his own experiment, but look at how he cares about the young mutants? X-Mansion is a proof of his caring, optimistic and passionate personality, giving hope to the minority to have better future. Alright, talking about Charles makes me sound old. Go on.

  • Peter Parker (Spider-Man) – INFP

Most kids’ wildest dream is getting bitten by radio-active spider and becoming Spidey. I was one of those moron kids. Thus, Pete-Parker was my childhood hero. As a kid, seeing a heroic older-but-not-too-older guy will make me day-dreaming of having a big brother. To every kid out there, imagine if Spider-man take you to school and all of your friends will drop their jaws. THAT WAS! MY DREAM! Dedicated, idealist, loyal, intensively struggle to make world as a better place are some traits of INFP in Spidey. At least before Venom turned him into somehow worse but better at the same time. Hey, maybe black-suit Spider-man is an ENTP.

  • Peter Quill (Star Lord) – ESFP

Another Peter. I envy Star Lord for he is having fun out of every task and difficult situation he encounters. He is also an excellent team-worker while I prefer to do most of the things solo. ESFP is creative and an out of the box thinker. This is why they always find fun ways to face everything even the worst situation. In some cases, especially the part of Guardian of the Galaxy movie, ESFP is an excellent peacemaker and this makes Star Lord a great leader.

  • Katherine Anne ‘Kitty’ Pryde – INFP

My mutant crush, indeed. Shared the same MBTI as Spidey, Kitty is an inter-dimensional mutant who can travel through not only concrete objects like wall but also time. Even though Kitty is not an excellent combatant, She plays important role in X-Men: Days of Future Past, though. I have described how heroic an INFP is. INFPs are usually idealist justice keeper who prefer to put douche-bags and bandits to jail rather than killing them on sight. Their kind-hearted personality suits ENTP well.

Now I am thinking of them teaming up together with Wade, Stark, and Raccoon. Though, I prefer Spidey with his symbiote suit. What’s the team name gonna be? You decide!

Forget and Figure Out

brain

Recently I re-watched Memento. A movie where Leonard, the protagonist, suffered short-term memory loss that made him unable to create new memory. Everything happened to him will soon to be disappear from his memory. This condition forced him to take notes every time he encountered something or met someone. However, at the end of the movie, there was a scene where Leonard burned one of the pictures that he took as an evidence of his accomplishment in avenging his wife, making him forgot that the person he hunted has been perished by himself. As the memory has lost and there was no evidence that the revenge has been paid off, he kept looking for the person who has killed his wife. A person that was no longer exist.

Memento is not the only movie that involves psychological thrills, especially the memory loss aspect, to force the viewers to think. Another one that is a little bit under-ratted is The Number 23. Some reviews describe the movie as clumsy, unengaging and confusing. However, that confusing part, triggered me.Walter Sparrow, the protagonist in  the movie came up with similar problem to Leonard: memory loss. The difference was Sparrow’s was unable to memorize what happened in his past but had no problem with the present time and making new memories. Despite the difference, both problems were similar: they forgot, completely.After watching, there was something hitting my thought while I brewed my coffee: What have we forgotten since we were born?

This thought of mine probably has no direct connection to the plot of both movies that I have taken as examples previously. However, the point here is the ‘forget’ part that suddenly triggered my curiosity after watching Memento for the second time.

Some people believe in after life as a period when we, human-beings, were born once, live for several years and no longer dwell in this world after the death comes and inhabit the other dimension where spirits, angels and demons live in. Shortly, we live once in this world, and move to another dimension after our death. The others, however, assume that there are previous life and next life in the same world that we live in now. The endless cycle that people know as reincarnation. Both, obviously, include the birth phase, either once or many times. The thing is, what if we have known everything before the parturition? Or for they who believe in reincarnation, what if they have known everything from their previous life but they just do not realize that they follow their intuition in the present cycle? What if we just forgot? What if we used to know when we will die, when we will get married, who our partner is, and so on? And what if the memories are actually hidden inside us but we do not know how to access it? Would you like to know when will you die and what happened before this lifetime?

Imagine someone hid a folder consist of an embarrassing secret of you that you have no longer remembered in your PC and he did not say anything about it. One day, you accidentally found that folder and slowly remembered everything. Now imagine the same thing in your memory but without PC. Imagine that you accidentally reveal your death in the future, probably via dreams, or just a convincing sudden thought. You slowly realize that it has been there ever since but you just did not realize it. It was a strange box that you have ignored since you were born and suddenly you opened it out of nowhere and found a surprising yet disturbing facts about yourself.

Now the question is what would you do next? Will you immediately confess and amend your mistakes in the past? Will you continue ignoring the revealed truth? Or will you cry in the corner of your room regretting what have happened so far in your life? I personally would probably be freaked out IF such situation happened to me. I would rather do not remember and try to do good things day by day. Keeping it as a mystery is the art of enjoying life. Well that’s my personal opinion though. After all, ENTP likes to talk bullshits. How about you? What if you remembered?
