WAKING LIFE -- ILLUSTRATED SCREENPLAY & SCREENCAP GALLERY
You know they say that there's still six to twelve minutes of brain activity after everything else is shut down. And a second of dream consciousness, right, well, that's infinitely longer than a waking second. You know what I'm saying?
[Julie Delpy] Oh, yeah, definitely. For example I wake up and it's 10:12, and then I go back to sleep and I have those long, intricate, beautiful dreams that seem to last for hours, and then I wake up and it's ... 10:13.
Yeah, exactly. So then 6-12 minutes of brain activity, I mean, that could be your
whole life. I mean, you are that woman looking back over everything.
[Ethan Hawke] Whatever I am right now. I mean, yeah, maybe I only exist in your mind. I'm still just as real as anything else.
