I was looking for the spelling and the philosophy behind "akom's razor" - The most simple theory is the correct solution - something like that

"Eleanor Ann Arroway, born 25th August 1964 in DePere, Wisconsin."

Nope, I don't know how or who chose that.

It's Palmer Joss, not Johnson, so that's probably a coincidence.

I am curious if anyone knows the references of Ellie's home town of DePere, WI. How was this decided? Also, The name of Palmer Johnson intrigues me. Palmer Johnson is a ship building company in Northeastern WI near DePere, WI. Does anyone know the origin of these subtle details?

Reflexive proof is the retreat of the non-thinker. Declaring something to be self-evident is a dodge to avoid analysis.
"Self-evidence" does not explain why something is self-evident. Is it always self-evident, no matter who examines it, or how it is measured? (etc, etc)
One's own existence may be pretty self-evident to oneself-- but you all look pretty hallucinatory to me.

I for one... really love the soundtrack of this wonderful movie. Is there anyone out there who knows an easy way of getting a hold of it? I would appreciate if you did, and I don't wanna use one of those tricky, hard-to-use web-book-stores like amazon.com or anything... Thanx!

"As a person of faith, I'm bound by a different covenant than Dr. Arroway, but our goal is one and the same, the pursuit of truth. I, for one, believe her."

Can anyone please tell me what Palmer said to the crowd outside after Ellies discussion about the journey? Something about "But, I for one believe her."

What I mean is the number 18 in hebre is translated into the word Life. So, did the author think of "18" hours or did someone who wrote the screenplay.

I'm still out here, but I don't understand the question. In the movie, she records about 18 hours of static, which tells Kits and Constantine that something really happened.

If anybody is still out there...Where does the 18 hour time travel that Elly goes on, come from? Was it in the book? Or was it from the movie?
