Many of those who followed the Dark described it as one of the most complex series, and this is a result of the complexity of the characters, as the character’s name is repeated in different forms and other patterns in different times, so we sometimes lose the ability to link events and characters across the times.
Here is talk about the ideas, theories and philosophies that underpin the series, and may contain some burning of events for those who did not watch it.
Eternal return and closed time loop
“The return of everything is as close as possible to the world of becoming from the world of existence” – Friedrich Nietzsche.
The series is based on the idea of “eternal return,” a cosmological hypothesis believed by many philosophers, most notably Friedrich Nietzsche, a German philosopher whose name was repeated and quotes from his words during the series.
Nietzsche believed and believed that cosmic events are repeated in the same manner and manner. What happened in the past is repeated in the present, and what happens in the present will happen in the future over repeated cycles of time.
In Nietzsche’s book, “This is the Man,” about the idea of eternal oud and how it came to him, he says: “It is the greatest form of assurance that man can attain. In August 1881, I wrote a small memo about it: six thousand feet behind man and time. “That day I traversed the forest along Lake Silvaplana, near a huge rock pyramid that emerged in the form of a pyramid.
To approximate the idea of eternity, we assume that the universe is a machine with a number of elements and components, this machine is programmed in a certain way so that it performs the same steps, processes and procedures whenever it is restarted, and the series depicts this machine as working continuously for 33 years, so that it produces during this The years are events, characters, and milestones that make up the universe at that time, then the machine turns off and reboots, and so on.
This is the simple idea on which the series is based, but the integration of the idea with the idea of time travel to show repetition in events and personalities, through the travel of some characters of the series to different dimensions of time, which created all this complexity, as it is a simple idea when we say it, but it is difficult To understand when they appear as cosmic reality.
Nietzsche’s eternal ideology was repeatedly mentioned in the series in different ways, for example: what happened to Eric and his disappearance is the same as what happened to Ullrich’s brother Madz 33 years ago, the same as what happened to Ullrich’s son Mikel 33 years later, and it is the same way as Charlotte says. . The characters occasionally report that they have experienced the same events before, but they do not know precisely and precisely (when? Where?), As well as the old sentence repeated by the old Hegel: “It will be repeated.”
Time Travel Gates
“Dark” uses the idea of the Earth’s star gates, formed in the cave of the forest as a result of a disaster or nuclear explosion, an event and produced a huge amount of energy, which in turn enabled the opening of gates with worm paths open on different dimensions of time separating the other dimension 33 years.
Time rings have a big impact on the principle of causality, as long as there is a wormhole there is a closed time loop inside it, everything is mutually conditioned, the past not only affects the future, but the future also affects the past, it’s like the question of chicken and egg, we can no longer say for sure About who was first, everything is interrelated.
The most illustrated work of the wormhole is the scene where Ulrich went to the cave to look for his son Mikel.He reached a closed iron door.Michael was on the other side of the cave and heard his father’s footsteps and called him, but he could not open the door. The time difference between them is 33 years, while the spatial difference is several meters. Here, time is an illusion and there is no real existence.
Philosophical struggle to explain the universe and existence
There are two philosophies that control the course of events and dominate everything that happens in it: a philosophy that believes that the universe repeats itself in each cycle of the same events and behavioral patterns of characters, and another philosophy that believes that the events of the past can be changed to avoid future mistakes.
The philosophy of eternal repetition of events is represented by Adam, and the philosophy of the possibility of temporal change is represented by the old Claudia. So far, it appears that the first philosophical trend is overwhelming. Everyone who tries to change in the past fails and feels powerless.
We saw this in Ulrich’s attempt to kill Hegel the little to avoid losing his son Mikel, but we find that Hegel is being reinstated by Noah to play the same role. Also, Central Claudia tries to avoid the death of her father Egon Tidman when she knows it before it happens, but we discover that it was she who caused his death in the same place and history. The old Hegel also tries to kill the young Hegel by bumping into his car, but we are surprised that the old man dies while the young Hegel lives to repeat the same acts that shape the same future. A cycle of chronological rotation of events, perpetual and permanent, and a complete failure to change or modify.
In the series, we note the presence of people who control events, and try to adapt them to serve their faith and beliefs in the universe, life and human nature, and they are so far as it turns out: Adam and Claudia, both at opposite ends, Adam wants to keep events steady and their eternal repetition, while Claudia wants change.
Adam has followers who carry out his orders and agenda, as well as Claudia, and shows that the followers are hesitant and uncertain, as one of them may follow Adam and then warn him Claudia of what he does, and he is convinced and followed.
