Jack's universe unfolded literally when he figured out how to turn the ship over to return to the proper world. Jack was able to focus on returning to the world and reclaiming his place in our universe.

Good catch, Glendaleigh. I hadn't thought of that. :thumbsup:

I'm not sure if Jack likes the way his universe is going. He sees his way of life coming to an end. The comment he makes after seeing the dead Kraken about the world is the same size but there is just less in it, lets us know he realizes things are changing but he will miss the way it was.

He is a child of the universe, just like the trees and the stars, and not only has a right to be here but wants to stay a part forever if he can make it happen.

Whether on not it is clear to you the universe is unfolding as it should. He may be wondering where he fits in the grand plan. Will he be a grand remembrance of the past like the Kraken or is his universe yet to unfold?

Another good catch. I hadn't thought of that either.

This stanza totally reminds me of Jack. The last line made me think the most though. When you think something is going not the way you planned, it is unfolding as it should. This reminds me of the saying," Everything happens for a reason." :cool:

Oh yes! And that would be my view on life and why I especially like this stanza.

It reflects the way he thinks: "Bring me that horizon." The world has no boundaries for Jack. And as for it unfolding as it should, there is method in the madness, a scheme in the film, with things unfolding as they should, and things suddenly making sense in AWE that weren't immedediately apparent in the first ones. I like the bit where he is talking to himself in the cage of the Flying Dutchman and being reminded that this was precisely the thing he was trying to avoid.
This stanza most reminds me of Jack's sadness when he sees the kraken dead. For him, it was a child of the universe too.

I love the shot of Jack reflected in the kracken's eye. I think it symbolizes that very thing, suec.

Good catch, DIDHOT! I didn't notice the reflection; I shall look out for it.
