Trivia

The title of the episode, "Obligate Mutualisms" is described by Crooms as a concept by the founder of BPO, Dr. Ruth El-Sadaawi. He says that she "believed sapians and sensorium to be obligate mutualisms, dependent on one another for their survival." Sapians, as described in this show, are regular human beings, the sensoriums are sensates, ones that can sense others like them. See more »

Outstanding opus of humanism
26 May 2017 | by kams120See all my reviews

Fantastic end. Mozart's requiem in D Minor (K626) always adds flavor. Love the cultural references instilled in Sense8 episodes. The Wachowskis make each episode a unique peace of art, linked to the others in an intriguing, deep and n-dimensional canvas.

Also, there's a "bigger picture" that can be fathomed when watching Sense8 through a comparative lens with the Watchowskis' other movies, esp. Matrix and Cloud Atlas. Recurring themes show a genuine ambition of the Directors to convey a message :

1. The leitmotiv of the benevolent underdogs fighting an almighty and obscure Big Brother (BPO in Sense8).

2. The somewhat federation/unity of humanity, beyond and independently of races, countries, religions, sexes or even economical motivation (e.g. : Capheus with Amondi Kabaka)

3. The courage it takes to fall 100 times and to rise 101. The fact that although life is absurd and often full of cruelties, one can build his own meaning, making life an aesthetic magnum opus, if and only if one keeps the ability of amazement in front of the beauty of the universe (e.g. : Capheus' history and kindheartedness, epitomized in the speech and conversation scenes in this episode)

Conclusion : I'm eager to watch the next episodes, yet I want to be patient, because each one requires time and focus in order to be not consumed, but fully reveled in.
