This:

""My favorite moment was when Keanu Reeves, while reading the full script for the first time, turned to Jose (the writer) and me and declared that "A checkmate with a Bishop and a King is impossible." Here was my childhood hero, whom I had just met minutes ago, pointing out a potentially fatal flaw in the script!"

- Caltech Scientist Spiros Michalakis on the videotaping of "Anyone Can Quantum."

And yeah, although I just play a little, it's pretty obvious that a checkmate with a King and a Bishop is impossible.

It's interesting in that Reddit that several people commented on Theodore Roosevelt's history of personal tragedies in his lifetime. I read a LOT about Theodore Roosevelt, and one book I've seen cited frequently is "Exuberance: The Passion for Life" by Kay Redfield Jamison. I haven't read it yet, just some excerpts, but she posits that a number of famous people including TR had what some call "hypomania" - like bipolar but without (many? any?) manifestations of depression. The common feature of people with "exuberance" is that they are tremendously productive, strong people who just won't allow depression to get them down. TR, from his own writings, was surely sometimes very depressed and was very well aware of the "black dog" but by sheer will overcame it through activity.

I'm not diagnosing anyone, but the fact that some personalities are just strong enough to charge through it is fascinating. It makes you wonder if that's possible for many people or just the few.

Written really poorly, but I would have loved to have heard Robert Thurman's talk.
"Meditation is a core practice of Buddhism" you think?
Neo can't believe that he's "the Matrix"?
Neo / the One is not a pun.
"Executive coach" - yeah, right. Credentials, training for that? Right, hang out a shingle, you're good to go, charging hundreds of dollars an hour.

Robert Thurman is great, but the whole idea of hiring an "executive coach" to tell you what is real is the opposite of the lesson of the film.

I go online and I research what they’ve worn in the past

That wouldn't have taken long for Keanu. ;) Blazer, grey t-shirt, jeans, beard, hat.

Reeves is somehow reassuring, with an enviably serene manner. This makes people see him as wooden, but I think it’s actually more about a man who likes to measure his movements; a movie star who understands space. I could write an essay about Keanu’s walk: rangy and relaxed, but precise; the gait of a man who never needs to hurry. It’s why I loved him in The Matrix: Keanu Reeves seems to know exactly where he’s going to end up.

From the comments: "A friend of mine who was working for a wine merchant in London delivered some wine to him a few years ago. He was invited in and had a glass with him and a chat about wine. I like to picture the scene because my friend is a lovely guy himself and great company."

I can only say that it's too bad they couldn't get a kitten for the KEANU movie that is 1% as adorable as Mr Reeves. Dang!
