One of these two souls is Prot, an alien from a faraway galaxy. The other is an American man, Robert, who is friends with this extraterrestrial.
the complexity of a human being
The movie’s plot creates a chance for spiritual awareness because it shows the complexity of a human being.
For example, a physical body is demonstrated as a cover, a sheath for one or several souls.
As a result, any soul could be embedded in any physical body.
Therefore, a physical body is not an Individual itself*.
Another strong spiritual point in the movie is compassion.
The impulse of compassion began from the extraterrestrial Prot. For instance, he has a positive perception of the mentally ill people in the hospital, supporting them.
Further, we also see a humanistic approach that Prot takes towards Robert.
Prot’s compassion touches a psychiatrist Dr. Mark Powell. Thus, he is inspired to spend his time and energy on a search for truth and personalized help for the damaged Robert.
In short, K-PAX (2001) is a great film for any spiritual seeker.
*After interviewing some Westerners about whether they believe in reincarnation, I was surprised to find that 99% of them did not.
In other words, most people in the Western world believe their existence will end at their physical body’s death.
