* AuthorAppeal: Richard Linklater is very passionate about philosophy. He's also admitted that his lucid dreaming played a part in the writing. His last scene has him discussing Creator/PhilipKDick's ''Flow My Tears, The Policeman Said''. His next film would be an adaptation of Dick's ''WesternAnimation/AScannerDarkly'', using the same rotoscoped animation.

* TheseusShipParadox: One segment with two women taking about being in their fifties, and that how people have to make up stories about who they were when they were younger. As noted in the Real Life segment, the human body is constantly regenerating cells, so they're both completely new people several times over since they were infants.

-->''"Eamonn Healy:''' If you look at the time-scale thatís involved here: two billion years for life, six million years for the hominid, a hundred-thousand years for mankind as we know it, youíre beginning to see the telescoping nature of the evolutionary paradigm. And then, when you get to agriculture, when you get to the scientific revolution and the industrial revolution, youíre looking at ten thousand years, four hundred years, a hundred and fifty years. Youíre seeing a further telescoping of this evolutionary time.

* SlidingScaleOfFreeWillVsFate: One of the topics covered. When David Sosa brings up quantum mechanics, and how particles seem random, he proclaims, "Should our freedom just be a matter of probabilities, just some random swerving in a chaotic system? That just seems like it's ''worse''. I'd rather be a gear in a big deterministic, physical machine than just some random swerving!"
