We will not try to discover the secret signs and esoteric puzzles in this movie. The basic idea lies on the surface- it’s hidden human potential and where lays the limit.
Luc Besson used very potent drugs as a catalyst and a method of unlocking of these abilities for Lucy as shown in the film, the entangled plot begins after they are used.
The very idea of the expansion of human consciousness, and hence the boundaries of the physical world, with the help of drugs is not new. Remember the famous Stanislav Grof and his experiments with LSD. Carlos Castaneda and his "The Teachings of Don Juan," where, as the expander of consciousness acts substance from a cactus called peyote.
Experiments were carried out with the participation of people in the 1950’s, but Besson chose not just the experience itself, astral travel, bur rather the possibility of a full exit from an existing matrix
The film is interesting in that the author uses as references various fragments of ancient religions and teachings. Knowledge of the new world and its hidden side, begins at Lucy with scrutiny morphing tree.
With each new dose of substance, Lucy increases her capacity, she is deprived of emotions and her world starts to become just a mere ordinary toy. The physical body becomes a burden. At a mental level, inside of Lucy exist many different forms of life, take a look at the changing eyes. All barriers of the physical world are erased and the entire universe opens up for her.
It the transformation of Lucy itself, becoming a superhuman, demigod managing space and time, but where is the limit.
There is no limit. Reaching 100 percent utilization of the brain, it is dissolved, its vibrations become so high that the entire history of the universe was in her palm. She is able to create matter, start the time and create a new life - she becomes a God.
John 10:34 The Jews answered Him, "For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God." 34Jesus answered them, "Has it not been written in your Law, 'I SAID, YOU ARE GODS'?
- That our life is a game.
