Beyond that, it’s a relationship with a child’s understanding of the aspects of the universe that are bigger than our physical selves, which is a very powerful realization in a child’s eyes. In seeing these spiritual representations of the universe in his own inner-vision, he begins to make relationships between the forces of the universe and how consciousness works.

That’s a pretty powerful lesson for a young boy!
It’s a very touching movie!
