he'll pull the corresponding switch

and the light will go on.

When he sees the blue, he'll do the same

thing and the blue light will go on.

And the same thing with the red.

Now, watch.

Nothing up the sleeves.

White, the one he normally sees.

But he can't see the blue.

Because it needed somebody who cared,

somebody who would support

some of the...

Well, more untraveled paths.

Like mine?

James, why do you want to see so much?

Well, why do you want

to go on breathing? To stay alive.

There are thousands of ways.

You're sitting right on top of probably
