- in 30 years, a millionaire goes on a virgin atlantic flight to space. he does this to escape the boredom of his marriage. he realises early on in the flight that space is pointless if we don't deal with the mute realities of this earth, and he takes his wife to "explore" the corners of earth he'd never thought about exploring.
- a man goes to rome but doesn't really "get" it. he doesn't really see the appeal of seeing something that is 2000 years old and in ruins, and he prefers the present. however, he visits the national museum and he sees all the ancient roman statues. as he's looking into the eyes of one of the busts, it suddenly morphs into his dad and starts talking to him. suddenly, all of the statues turn into everybody that he knows and start talking to him, and telling him things that they never told him. he's blown away.
