So, I just watched the movie Lucy (starring Scarlet Johansson), and although I think I got most of it, I do have some questions about it.
To begin with:
"Humans normally use only about 10% of their cerebral capacity"?
What is the significance of stating the figure to be 10% in context of the movie, especially when there seems to be a lot of disagreement stating otherwise? There is this article on Wikipedia: Ten percent of brain myth and another one which places this belief to be on the List of common misconceptions. Why, then, are we told that the usage is just 10%?
And the most essential question I have:
By the time she reaches 100%, what exactly does Lucy turn into?
Throughout the progression of her transformation, wherein Lucy steadily gets access to further remote areas of her brain, she is shown to acquire several powers. She travels through the space/time continuum, traveling back through time to reach the ape Lucy. Also, when there is a glimpse of planets, galaxies and universes, I'm thinking that is intended to imply that she gains knowledge of formation of galaxies as well.
At the very end, what exactly does she become?
After all this ends, and especially in light of the text Lucy sends: I am everywhere, would you say that Lucy has become God, or something beyond God, or something else entirely?
Also, when Lucy responds with the text at the end, what are we told? Does it mean that Lucy is now physically dead, but omnipresent via the USB, or perhaps even without it?
