The Mysterious

Keeping our eyes healthy and safe is important. We have to protect our eyes and prevent injury or blindness. Usually blindness are present at birth, others appear later in life because of infections or environmental factors.

One of my friend Ana shared about a mysterious film website i am blind at started as an Alternate Reality Game (ARG) and was featured on and many users found the website initially. This is the place for public interaction, mystery game, sending photos, creating videos and sharing information. As of now the features a gallery of user generated content and a very busy forum open to those less aware of the gaming element. They are discussing and centering on the themes of the film Blindness. It's a dramatic thriller film by Jose’ Saramago about a society suffering from epidemic mysterious milky-white blindness. In the movie, everybody becomes panic and the newly blind victims of the "White Sickness" are rounded up and quarantined within a crumbling, abandoned mental asylum, where all semblance of ordinary life begins to break down.

In my own opinion, the movie is about the mysterious virus that makes the people suddenly blind and not capable of doing anything because they are sick and not yet adjusted.

The film opened on October 3rd in the United States.
