New updated time line followed by the old notes before June 8, 2017
PART ONE: First two hours of the class
Watch the first 30 minutes only. DEAD POETS SOCIETY
And consider the following:
Play the first 30 minutes of the movie. Stops 30 minutes when Neil says what is the “Dead poets society”.
Neil is the expression of humans being trained by being forced into submission. The force is sourced in the ability to survive. We survive by our dependancy and that dependency gives power to…the suppressor.
The quantum self-expression being squashed in honor of the small self and this illuminates the time line life. Making it more real. An illusion made so real, that who we really are disappears.
The Small Self rules and there is no integrity-coherence-alignment with the Quantum Self.
Oh Captain, my captain. Perhaps we read the poem to uncover the time line life that leads to death. Could we consider death is happened Already? physically? Or could we relate it in some way to the death of the small self? (Use the Michael Singer’s view of death at some point during the day?)
Create a conversation around seizing the day. Sucking the nectar out of experience and distinguish LIFE as it is for the QUANTUM SELF.
Life as a poem and each of us can contribute a verse, the verse will come from the quantum self, the higher part of you not the small self, ego, identity, though that part is used to express. It is part of the vehicle through which we experience life, real life, quantum life, aliveness, it’s the explosion of energy RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW NO MATTER WHAT THE TIMELINE.
What will your verse be. A group exercise that has one get in touch with the very young self, the essence we can recognize. What is it? You gave up on it because the time line took over, the identity pretended to be YOU.
TONIGHT you will come face to face with the essence of who you are, the spirit that connects you to all of it.
You can hear the brain speak. you can hear the heart express.
We will then introduce that to the world. That will be the next 3 weeks of webinars.
First we get ME then we get US and THEM.
At some point we blend it all up, for we are all of it. There is no separation between me, us or them. It is the illusion of the small self to keep it in existence. It too though matters otherwise why is it. If it is, then we must be it belongs.
PART TWO: 30 minutes into the movie.
Connecting at the level of spirit. Todd starts to wake up.
YOU are an original piece of work.
Discuss how does an US turn into a THEM
What is threatened?
Third Part: 1:20 minutes in
We will ask the participants to choose which character do they most associate with.
In their groups they will discuss this and PERHAPS bring into the equation what they learned from their interviews.
One of Keating’s students, who decides to restart the Dead Poets Society. He has a strained relationship with his controlling father.
Abusive Parents: His dad has rigid expectations.
The Ace: He’s bright, popular, sporty, in numerous clubs, Harvard-bound, and clearly the leader in his group of friends.
Ambiguously Gay: He and Todd are very, uh… close.
Bad Liar: Mr. Keating is quick to see his lies when he says his dad was okay with him acting.
Big Man on Campus: Everyone adores him, and he’s a talented actor as well as a good student.
The B Grade: There’ll be hell to pay if he gets anything less than an A+ average.
Broken Ace: Despite his popularity, he’s actually trapped by his controlling father and sees no way out.
Bromance: With Todd. Neil is instantly protective of him and the two are very close.
Decoy Protagonist: Late into the movie it becomes clear the true protagonist is Todd.
Driven to Suicide: After his father forbids him theatre and promises to get him from his school…
Extracurricular Enthusiast: Not his idea, but his father’s.
Red Oni, Blue Oni: The red to Todd’s blue. He’s much more passionate and ready to do things.
Stepford Smiler: He was miserable underneath his out-going, cheerful personality. It makes the climax so very shocking.
Tragic Bromance: With Todd. Neil is immediately protective of Todd, and seemingly makes it his mission to bring him out of his shell. Then his own problems crush him, leaving his best friend more broken than before.
A new student at Welton, and Neil’s roomate. He starts out as the most timid of the poets, but gains confidence thanks to Keating and Neil’s encouragement.
Abusive Parents: In an interesting contrast to the pressure Neil suffers, his parents expect nothing of him and a deleted scene reveals his dad’s equates his value as a person to his chemical worth.
Parental Neglect: A heartbreaking scene has Todd sitting alone with his birthday present… the same present he got last year.
Always Someone Better: Both his parents and staff adore his brother Jeffrey, who was apparently Valedictorian and a National Merit Scholar. And they don’t mind shoving it in Todd’s face.
Ambiguous Disorder: He shows several signs of suffering from Social Anxiety Disorder.
Ambiguously Gay: His relationship with Neil is pretty… intense.
Bromance: With Neil. The two are very close and it’s established Neil is Todd’s only good relationship, at least at first.
Bromantic Foil: To the confident, outgoing Neil.
Grew a Spine: As the movie goes on, he becomes more confident.
New Transfer Student: As if his shyness wasn’t bad enough.
Not So Different: Seems the complete opposite to the confident Neil, but it’s revealed they both struggle with their parents’ expectations.
Red Oni, Blue Oni: The blue to Neil’s red. He’s much quieter and more introspective.
Shrinking Violet: He has trouble talking in class (or even one-on-one with his roommate) and avoids eye contact. He gets better, though.
Tragic Bromance: With Neil. Throughout the movie the pair grow extremely close, confiding their family problems and comforting each other in trouble. Neil especially builds Todd’s broken self-esteem, resulting in Todd becoming happier and more confident in himself. Then Neil makes his drastic decision and Todd is left distraught and heartbroken; it’s unclear if he’ll ever really recover.
The Unfavourite: To a devastating extent. His parents don’t value him at all and he’s constantly compared to his successful brother Jeffrey.
Charlie “Nuwanda” Dalton
Another of Keating’s students and the most rebellious member of the Dead Poets Society.
Brass Balls: As demonstrated with his “phone call from God” prank.
The Charmer: Not that he has much chance to be. He makes use of poem lines written by Shakespeare and Byron to seduce two girls he brings into the cave.
Class Clown: Always goofing off.
Do Not Call Me “Paul”: After he starts getting involved with Gloria, he makes up the name “Nuwanda” in the spirit of experimemtation, and whenever someone calls him “Charlie”, he’ll respond by saying, “It’s Nuwanda.”
Hot-Blooded: Definitely the most reckless of the boys.
Jerk with a Heart of Gold: As much as he likes to goof around and mouth off, he does care about his friends and refuses to betray them.
Rebellious Spirit: As seen below, he’s more than willing to defy authority.
Refuge in Audacity: After publishing an article in the student newspaper suggesting that girls be enrolled into Welton, he pranks the entire establishment by pretending to get a phone call from God endorsing the sentiment.
Undying Loyalty: Despite his careless attitude, he is extremely protective of his friends, refusing to betray them under a brutal beating and being expelled out of loyalty to Keating.
Member of Keating’s class and the Dead Poets Society. Spends most of the movie attempting to win the love of local girl, Chris.
The Determinator: He’s going to get Chris if it’s the last thing he does.
Love at First Sight: Struck dumb when he sees Chris for the first time.
Stalker with a Crush: Yeah, he’s nice, and he means Chris no harm, but still. Following her to school? Really?
Another classmate, who is grudgingly accepted into the Dead Poets Society.
Dirty Coward: He betrays his classmates and informs the authorities about their secret poetry meetings…just to save his own skin.
Establishing Character Moment: He invites himself into a study group with Neil then makes fun of Todd before even meeting him.
Et Tu, Brute?: Turns out that the below trope is justified; people were right not to like him, since later he betrays everyone.
The Friend Nobody Likes: For good reason. He betrays Keating to save his own ass.
It’s even made clear in the movie that the only reason he is a member is because, being Charles’ roommate, they can’t hide the meetings from him.
It’s All About Me: He doesn’t care what happens to Keating and the rest of the Society after telling the administration about it since he got off scot free.
Jerkass: He wasn’t pleasant to begin with, but betraying the Society? Dick move, dude.
Smug Snake: He betrays the Society and encourages the others to do the same. When Charlie punches him, he gloats that now Charlie is going to be expelled for sure.
The smartest member of the Dead Poets Society.
Deadpan Snarker: Mostly in regards to Charlie’s antics.
Embarrassing Surnames / Unfortunate Names: Lampshaded by Keating.
Four-Temperament Ensemble: Supine.
Nice Guy: He tutors Charlie in almost every subject.
The Smart Guy
Smart People Know Latin
Those Two Guys: With Pitts.
The final member of the Dead Poets Society.
Embarrassing Surnames / Unfortunate Names: Lampshaded by Keating.
The Generic Guy: He doesn’t have much characterisation or a story arc; in fact, his comparative normalcy serves to heighten the unorthodox nature of his friends.
