what you don’t understand then, but you understand now

I watched the first Ghost In the Shell when it came out in italy the first time. I was young and although I liked the movie, I didn’t understood it well.

I remember that I was confused about it. As if it was overly complex, something far from my reach.

I watched the same movie, today, years after. And it was simpler.
Not because I knew the plot, but because some concepts were now part of my “vocabulary”.

Politics, the way the politics act and works are more clear now than then.

It wasn’t because it was too complex (although it is), I didn’t understood it because I didn’t have the vocabulary and the experience to gain something from the show.
