The Binary Code

I know every dialogue in the movie ‘Troy’ by heart! This scene embedded below is an epic dialogue from the movie where Prince Hector, heir to the throne, commander of the armies of Troy prepares his men for battle with this speech. This movie compelled me to research a bit about Greek mythology. With Brad Pitt as ‘Achilles’ and Chris Hemsworth playing ‘Thor’ later, Greek mythology became really fascinating. All the Greek gods are so handsome and perfectly sculpted!

The CODE: Epic dialogues from the movie ‘Troy’ where Prince Hector, heir to the throne, commander of the armies of Troy prepares his men for battle with this speech.

The Binary Code – poem by Ruelha

All my life, I've lived by a code
And the code is simple
Honour the gods; love your partner, and defend your country!
These three deserve utmost respect and your fidelity!

All of my life, I've lived in binaries
Even before I did not have diaries
I seen everything as 'one' or 'zero'
In hindsight, my vision may have been narrow

All my life, I saw things as black or white
With all the disparities and inconsistencies, despite
I never considered there could be some gray
I've always been exactly this way

Things were either right or wrong
No extending borders, once they were drawn
It's either true or false
Those were straight walls

It's either a yes or a no
Things were'nt flexible like play-doh
It's either dead or alive
You either can or cannot drive

But today, I see so many different shades
As many as the hues of green in the Everglades
Even the whiteness of white is discerned by its Kelvin rating
Much more than before, it has become confusing yet fascinating

    not worthy of Life.”
    Jesus said, “I myself shall lead her in order to make her
