March Del Plata, Argentina...
U-530 arrives in port unexpectedly and surrenders to the Argentine Navy.

The crew are interned and the submarine turned over to the US Navy

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
With July looking so settled and commitments to a minimum, I have a golden opportunity to focus on my prime objective - to lift consciousness out of this character entirely and simply enjoy the movie, which is in essence a slice of spacetime. I am convinced from my understanding of Physics that everything in all time already exists and the ego is an opportunity to view a unique slice of it, and contribute the knowledge obtained to universal knowledge.
There's a twinge at being aware that consciousness can now never go back - it can't unlearn what it is, but the character's individual experience wasn't that great anyway. There's a need to freely surrender what was temporary anyway for a peace of mind that is eternal.

9. ZEN WISDOM
It is natural for human beings to look forward. Our eyes naturally look ahead. In this sense, we are made for moving toward a goal.
