Lara Croft Tomb Raider

Lara Croft Tomb Raider. My wife recently bought the movie: "Lara Croft: Tomb Raider" for the family on DVD. It was interesting that this character started in an extremely popular computer game and then Angelina Jolie was hired to play the character for the movie. Also, there is the plot element of the illuminati which reminds me a lot of the plot elements of both National Treasure and The Da Vinci Code. I think these kinds of subjects are very interesting to people the last ten years or so. And these subjects have always been interesting to the very intelligent in the western world for at least 500 or more years.

The basic words in this intelligent pursuit I believe have always been Free thought, rationality, compassion and relevance. I also believe that like the Greeks said, "Moderation in all things". It seems like all extremes of thought lead to either suicide or homicide for those of you who study history, especially social history. So, people who look at life in these ways have usually tried to emphasize "Balance".

Even if you take this into Theosophical thought like Madame Blavatsky, the Chohans incarnate on earth to maintain "Balance". "Order" is important too, however, the most evolved souls I believe strive for balance. For without balance nothing survives on Earth at all.
