Jacob's Ladder
Nov. 20, 1955
Nov. 20, 1955. Running time: 58:33.The story of Jacob teaches that man lives in two dimensions which create a constant tension. The "tragic sense of life" comes out of this tension and refers to how the summary of achievements can't be reduced to units of wholeness. The contradictions of life cause people to keep surviving because they are not final contradictions. Good can always find a way to emerge from the bad. The human spirits ultimate destiny is integrity of its structure and existence.
