Twilight Zone: The Dimension of Imagination Discussion There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man’s fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Twilight Zone. Unitarian Rod Serling created The Twilight Zone series in 1959 stemming from his belief that his role as a writer was to “menace the public conscience.” He viewed his scripts as “vehicles of social criticism,” and used imaginative science fiction and fantasy to address broad social concerns such as conformity, authoritarianism, war, etc. This series will engage different episodes of The Twilight Zone and reflect on the social implications they have for our lives today.
Facilitator: Crystal Zerfoss is Intern Minister at First Unitarian Church-Portland.
