The documentary.

In the Aftermath of the Chernobyl disaster and the "death" of the Soviet Union, a team of Russian scientists seeks "immortality" on a tiny Greek island and in the philosophy of Pythagoras. Along with a survivor of the disaster, the nuclear physicist Andrei, as their leader, they create a commune on the island and establish there an esoteric school.



Genius, madness, simple weirdness?

I think they're just grateful to be alive.

I guess next time I'm grateful to be alive I'll abandon civilization and my highly specialized field to live a pseudo-primitive life in a commune...

Seems like a pretty smart move on their part.

If I could isolate myself with a handful of people with like mindedness I would totally take up that offer. The problem with being isolated is that you have to be self sufficient, which can be difficult, but if it is done, it brings a lot of inner peace I would think knowing you are solely responsible for yourself and no one else is depending on you. That is what I call true freedom.
