way to infuse humanity
Voice overs from the character Captain Nemo
Spare voiceovers are crucial to make Nemo's
Mind as safe to express beauty and wonder as the other genres such
as books and movies. Without a voice over then it appears the
makers of NM put their blessing on nuclear energy etc. Another
example of needed steering is the use of terms such as Genesis Beach
- the user can see the term as they please. But some users
will find a way to take offense such as thinking the makers of NM
imply an evolution stance in having users crawl up on to the
beach. See the example quote below
Voiceovers by a quality actor with Indian
Every time the user signs on and enters the
Nemo's Mind environment a voice over is given to keep some focus on
Jules Verne's and Nemo's sentiment
Voiceovers could be placed strategically around
the island such as at the remnants of the slave camp and dock
Example Voice Overs
- Countless lines of dialogue from the 2 books: "20,000 Leagues
Under The Sea" and "Mysterious Island".
- "I think of this as Genesis Beach for it was the beginning of
my love of the sea"
- The condensation sphere: "You see the complete harnessing of
the sun's energy. It is disquieting. Is it worth the
fear of another poison lake?"
- When approaching the full size whale statue (made of purple rock)
at the Observatory: "The purple of royalty comes from
centuries of quarrying the purple porphyry of Egypt and its use all
across Europe and North to St. Petersburg, in temple columns and the
sarcophagus of aristocrats. With the rock I have found in
ancient wrecks we create the Monarch of the Seas. This whale
is the monarch of all those that suffer the trampling of humanities
- The upper condensation sphere: "I find that as I sleep in my
latest years, I take refuge in creations of my mind. I do not like
the lack of form and so I have indulged only in an orderly sequence
of spheres such as this one, that lie through out the underground of
my mind as they strive to surface"
- The bunkers: "The heart of my ultimate accomplishment.
To overcome as much as is possible, my men suffering from weaknesses
of the mind that are hazard to the seclusions of our mission.
Through years of building my army, too many have disappeared to
suicide. Our environment is unbalanced. So each must
have their passions ignited. If it is art, then they must be allowed
to flourish that. If it is science.. you have seen the
results. I believe the results of this 'unbalance' are
unmatched but at the price of individual peace and happiness.
The ultimate bolster of our spirits is of course the beauty of the
sea and the ultimate cause for our actions is humanities disregard
- Nemo's Nautilus Study: (full of Nautilus design schematics
and maps of trade routes and charts of wrecks for plundering) "In myself I find the insidious nature of my enemy, I find
myself subjecting all to my private designs"
- Lighthouse: "It is easy to see those who abuse their family also show the
symptoms against neighbor and nature"
- "The science of a force colluded in cause is rarely
- At the first Dream Set: "I
spend my last days dreaming in and out of this fantastical refuge
where I revisit my memories. At any time my history haunts me,
then I find solace in these treasures and hope I can grow to love
the good of humanity again"
- About the Giant Crabs and Beetles: "I manipulate the giants
to provide a wall of defense against those that would attack my
- Omen Island: "It was once Savior Island. Now I name it OMEN
Island, as it created its own future. It was all
destruction. And now its terrain shifts in my mind. I
try to stuff it with the chaos that sometimes reigns in my
mind. I like that it now, is the science part of my mind in
war with the art of destruction. My struggles against humanity
was in the name of oppression, but I only found that it is the
struggle that will destroy us. The upping of the technological
ante, year, after year.
- OMEN Island: "My ultimate accomplishment. This monument
of my creations always takes me to the day I decided to act on my
boyhood ideals. I gathered supporters into long sessions deep
into the fathoms of many nights. We felt a vigor and euphoria
as I found many opportunities to drag them into the mysterious
powers of the deep, available for us against all tyrannies.
The abyss was mine.."
- Musing on plate glass when rising through the water column:
"So many visions of the elements of glass. The ability to
separate and yet reveal. Two disparate forces that may be the
secrets of the mind"
