Howard Zimmerman, a conman and supposed movie producer, at one point in the episode of Fargo titled “The Law of Non-Contradiction” explains life through the lens of quantum physics. He says we’re nothing but particles floating through space and that the only times we ever feel really alive are when we have special connections with people that we meet. Synapses fire. Something happens. It’s the only thing that shakes us out of the illusion of life and we fully experience it.
