Main Question or Discussion Point
Has anyone ever seen this movie? It really is not all that great, and in one scene the main character, which is a mathmatician, is describing the number phi and the logarithmic spiral, but for some reason he calls it theta instead of phi. I don't know if that is completely incorrect, or if some people refer to the ratios of the golden rectangle as theta, but it seemed to make the movie seem cheesy to me. But the reason why I am taking about this movie is because I think that I figured it out. The government implanted some type of device in his brain to make him so smart he can extract an algorithm that will predict the stock market extremely accurately. The trying to predict the stock market part is made clear in the movie, but in one scene he drills into his skull with a power tool, and in the next scene he is not a genius anymore. And it does not explain this (obviously someone would either die, or cause extreme brain damage by doing this, but I am just talking about the extremely fictional scenario from this movie). Sorry if what I have written does not make any sense, it is like 2:30am and I have been studying for about 8 hours, my brain is like mush.
