I got to see Galaxy’s Edge for the first time. Fortunately, I didn’t need to make a reservation. I just walked right in! The moment I walked through this threshold, I cast aside my normal persona and adopted my Star Wars persona. In this place, Grady P. Brown no longer existed. After spending my entire life watching and reading the Star Wars universe, I got to live it in Galaxy’s Edge. The Force was strong with me like never before! Thanks to Disney, it will be an experience I will get to live over and over again until I am dead. I found my personal Westworld!
While watching Westworld, I noticed that the androids were not allowed to harm the human guests, but the human guests could do whatever they wanted to the androids. Because of this, the humans were given a golden opportunity to release their inner darkness while venturing into the park. For example, Ed Harris’s character started out as a good-natured, soft-spoken, and mild-mannered man, but after visiting the park for thirty years, he became a far darker person and a hardened survivor of countless skirmishes. With this in mind, I wonder what would become of me if I went to such a theme park. Even though I am generally a good person, I have always known that I have a darkness in me that must never see the light of day. If I had the opportunity of letting my demons off the leash like in Westworld, I highly doubt I will ever be the same person again and I may not be able to cage the beast again. In the original Westworld film, there was a Medieval World and that would be the park in which I would be right at home. It would also be the best place to gain REAL inspiration for my fantasy books. The reason for this is because up until now I have only gained rudimentary information and experience. With a place like Westworld, I will actually get to LIVE the medieval lifestyle and be exposed to the savage world that breeds savage people I learned so much about.
