Peter Weyland[edit]

  • To those of you who know me: you will be aware by now that my ambition is unlimited. You know that I will settle for nothing short of greatness, or I will die trying. To those of you who do not yet know me: allow me to introduce myself. My name is Peter Weyland, and if you'll indulge me, I'd like to change the world.
  • 100,000 BC: stone tools. 4,000 BC: the wheel. 900 AD: gunpowder — bit of a game changer, that one. 19th century: eureka, the lightbulb! 20th century: the automobile, television, nuclear weapons, spacecrafts, Internet. 21st century: biotech, nanotech, fusion and fission and M theory - and THAT, was just the first decade! We are now three months into the year of our Lord, 2023. At this moment of our civilization, we can create cybernetic individuals, who in just a few short years will be completely indistinguishable from us. Which leads to an obvious conclusion: WE are the gods now.

Just checking in briefly I noticed these were removed, with the reason that they were not in the movie itself, but apparently only in an advance promotional scene released about it. I am certainly not so exclusionary, presumptive or restrictive as many are or tend to be, and far less prone than most to making, promoting or obeying such artificial and detrimental restrictions as can be created by mortal minds with very limited imaginations or tolerances for those who have greater forms of imagination or discernment than they can recognize or appreciate — and believe this should be given a place on the page eventually — but have far more important things to attend to now, and might not get back to attending much to this page and quite a few other matters of some interest to me here for a few days or weeks.

I'd suggest having a subsection of the page for the trailers, and including these quotes there. --User:Tryst (talk to me!) 15:37, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
To promote such sections would be my inclination as well, but I simply assessed that I did not have much time to attend to arguing the matter any time soon. I must be leaving soon, and have many other concerns keeping me busy. ~ Kalki·· 15:44, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
