Why God created Cinema

Why God created Cimema?

The story of the Projected-Image goes back to the down of the Homo sapiens.

On the first time when Adam dared to pick up a burning branch of wood he discovered a Wonderful Phenomenon: by throwing the light radiating from the fire of the burning branch on a surface, and by blocking the light by certain objects, he might cast series of lights and shadows on the wall of his cave and shape them into figures. That was the first “Home Cinema” device, and Adam was the first Cinematographer. From now on it was only a matter of scientific and technologic development, from Flickering Shadows to Modern Digital Magic Boxes.
