I don’t watch TV or Movies often but I recently watched Imitation Game on Netflix. And at the end of the movie, it turns out that this movie is based on a true story. It portrays a real life story of legendary cryptanalyst, Alan Turing. The movie is based off of the book, Alan Turing: The Enigma (1983) (funny how I’m talking about enigma again…) is a biography of the British mathematician, codebreaker, and early computer scientist, Alan Turing (1912–1954) by Andrew Hodges. (Maybe the film wasn’t completely accurate, and had a lot of dramatization, but it’s still based on a true story). My mind was blown. That this movie was true? (If you haven’t watched it yet, I would recommend it. I will be talking about the movie on here so I’ll probably spoil it for you. Last chance if you want to watch it first before you find out what it is about!).

I could not believe that Alan Turing, (and a handful of other scientists too, I don’t know their names and I wish I did because they deserve recognition) made one of the first “computers” and that this was kept a secret for over 50 years. The intelligence that these scientists had at that time period, to create this instrument was astounding. If this had been known to the world back then, think about our society and how different our world would be now. I’m not saying I would love to have an even more less connected society, I much prefer to be outside in the sun with my barefeet on the ground. But think of the possibilities of where we could be as a society. (Even though more than ever I feel we need to be connected to our true nature of who we are) Think of the possibilities of where you could be if you go out there and chase whatever it is that sets your soul on fire.

I think the thing that hit home with me, is that things seem impossible until they are done. He knew that he could build something to interpret the German messages from the Enigma machine. People thought he was crazy, but he did it. He believed in himself, and that right there, believe in yourself and you’re half way there to making it happen. How cool is it that they made a computer back then. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do something. Because in this life, anything is possible, you just gotta believe in yourself. Don’t even tell yourself that you can’t do something, because then you’ll put a limitation on yourself. You are an infinite being living in an infinitely abundant universe.

Hugging Trees (this is an apple tree!) is in my DNA.

Go out there and chase your dreams! Even the big scary, impossible seeming ones.

Much Love,
