Zero theorem

This film looks good, or at least it seems to be exploring an interesting question, plus I like Terry Gillian’s films.

I think it is about a man’s search to prove that the universe is meaningless.

0 (zero) must equal 100%

“why would you want to prove that all is for nothing?”

Is there meaning in the universe? Well, if God exists there is, but without God it’s hard to see how there could be. We can make up meaning if we want, but it’s not really an ultimate meaning. It’s an invention. A pretence. Our experience of meaning does however point to the possibility of someone bigger than us, a self existent being who made the universe and who can give the universe and our lives absolute meaning. Surely our existential experience of meaning and need for it should lead us to seek out God but I doubt that is where the film goes.
