(eyeing Cable's glass jaw)
This one's comin' from J. Edgar.
Desmond blasts him in the jaw and Cable goes over - lights out, all
Mrs. Tremond's grandson is standing in that room. He is holding his
hands above him as if he is grasping an imaginary glass ball. As we
move towards the space between his hands a ring of fire appears there
and we move thru that into...
113. INT. RED ROOM
(Why include such specific imagery (an imaginary glass ball) in the script when it could never be conveyed on camera?)
He is getting nothing. The static begins to build on the intercom.
The wiring in the wall and the flourescent lights start to hum as
LET ME HEAR SOME GOOD NEWS. MY
DEVICE IS FAULTY. WHERE THE HELL IS
THE SOUND IN THIS THING?
(pounds on the intercom)
A GUY in the room is working on a light that keeps buzzing and
shorting out. He doesn't really know what he's doing so he is
poking at the wiring.
One thing that has been troubling me.
That lamp at the diner. Do you think
they were working on it for esthetic
reasons or was their work due to faulty
Esthetics are subjective, aren't they,
The word that Paul used for glass actually refers to a mirror. Glass has the property of reflecting, and so can be used as a mirror. It reflects as well as being transparent. The glass Paul referred to was probably a translucent, and unclear sort of glass. Clear glass was first developed about the end of the first century, in Egypt.
Paul’s idea of glass obscuring our view of things may be the foundation for John’s use of the idea of a “sea of glass.”
Paul said, “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” [1 Corinthians 13:12]
John described those who gain the victory over the beast as standing upon the sea of glass, that is before the throne of God, where they no longer have to view things “through a glass.” Their perspective is like that of Moses; they are “face to face” with Christ, and the throne. But the sea of glass on which they stand still functions as a mirror.https://www.thisisyourbible.com/index.p ... diaid=1215
