Chronophasia? : LUSENET : Aeon Flux : One Thread

Just got "Mission Infinite" and Chronophasia is my fav. episode (next to Isthmus Crypticus). But i must confess i have yet to figure out what the hell is going on in some parts. Would anyone like to share your thoughts on Aeon's adventures in this ep? Thanx

Chronophasia, roughly meaning "time distortion", has a lot to say about consciousness expansion and the way we percieve time. The baby, mutated by a drug that distorts perception of time, seems to have some limited form of time control. Trevor wants this drug, but the Monicans see it as a threat and so they send Aeon to retrieve the baby before Trevor can study it. However, Aeon meets a boy who exists outside of time completely, and this is where it gets weird. Time starts to loop, events start repeating themselves. But they change each time, as if the boy were showing her many different possible outcomes. The one constant is that they end badly, and Aeon wakes up in the cave again. These scenarios become faster and faster, piling up on themselves, which seems to indicate that the time-loop is winding down and will eventually end. The loop does end, the boy passes his wisdom to Aeon in a drop of his blood, and she escapes the cave... by leaving her own time. Well that's my little synopsis, I hope it helps.

There is, of course, much more to be said, but I don't want to force my opinions on a newcomer. Watch the tape a couple more times, mull it over, and come back here when you're ready. Then I'll force my opinions on you! :)

Joey, better stay away from my idea of the time loop/baby thing, or you really will be confused, Paul's is much more conscise. Pretty good, Paul, nicely put.
