So preoccupied whether they could
Didn’t stop to think if they should
They were “so preoccupied with whether or not they should” that they “didn’t care about whether or not they could.” Those ominous words were first spoken by Dr. Ian Malcolm in Jurassic Park almost 30 years ago. That line quickly became one of cinema’s most popular. It is still true in many of the real-life circumstances we face today. The most recent instance in which we can apply it goes all the way back to the actor who said those words in the first place. There’s a chance Jeff Goldblum will turn up in Star Wars…. Should he, however, do so?
The idea of a talented actor acting in a Star Wars film isn’t as far-fetched as it might seem at first. Remember, in 2017’s Thor: Ragnarok, Jeff Goldblum played the delightfully eccentric and evil Grandmaster. Ragnarok was directed by Taika Waititi, and it is one of the MCU’s most romantic films. Waititi also starred as IG-11 in The Mandalorian and directed the show’s epic first season finale. In a recent interview, Goldblum explored the prospect of appearing in Star Wars.
With Insider, the Fly actor discussed his friendship with Taika Waititi as well as the possibility of featuring in The Mandalorian. That’s unlikely to happen because Waititi’s character blew up in Season 1 and he’s not running any of Season 2’s episodes. A Star Wars partnership between Jeff Goldblum and Taika Waititi, on the other hand, isn’t out of the question. Waititi is directing the next Star Wars feature film, as we all know. Goldblum himself made a cryptic reference to his participation in the project:

Dr. Ian Malcolm is a mathematician who specializes in “Chaos Theory,” a branch of mathematics. Malcolm is the main protagonist in The Lost World: Jurassic Park and one of the main protagonists of the Jurassic Park franchise. Malcolm features in both of Michael Crichton’s novels. Malcolm is Crichton’s mouthpiece, who refers to him as the “ironic observer” on the action. 1st Malcolm is played by Jeff Goldblum in the films. Malcolm was also featured in a variety of Jurassic-themed media, including comic books, video games, and toy lines.
Donald Gennaro invited Ian Malcolm to the park as an insurance consultant because Donald assumed that Ian, as a fiduciary, would be able to spot some risky defects in the park. He met John’s consultants, Paleobotanist Ellie Sattler and Paleontologist Alan Grant, on the helicopter trip to Isla Nublar, and traveled with them, along with John and Donald, into the park, where he was shocked by the sight of a living Brachiosaurus. He then went to the Visitor’s Center, where he heard about the park’s dinosaurs and saw a baby Velociraptor hatch. Although his coworkers marveled at the spectacle, Ian expressed concerns about the Park’s ability to handle the animals they were breeding, explaining to them that “life finds a way.”

The backstory to the quote: The quote is from the original Jurassic Park film. It’s about a wealthy philanthropist named John Hammond (played by the late Richard Attenborough) whose dream of opening a theme park filled with actual dinosaurs is about to come true, but something goes wrong and the dinosaurs escape, putting the people inside in danger.
The quote is from the beginning of the movie. The tourists eat lunch after having a tour of the park, and the investors are ecstatic. Dr. Ian Malcolm (played by Jeff Goldblum) is less enthusiastic, as he sees the dangers of resurrecting dinosaurs.
Geek wisdom: Sometimes we do stuff just to see what we can. We have a propensity to live in the moment, indifferent to the consequences of our actions. The consequences aren’t always worth it.
I spent the bulk of my childhood (and adult life) doing geeky things like watching TV, playing video games, and going to the movies. It could have seemed like a waste of time to others. To me, it has turned me into the geeky adult I am today.

Most types of power necessitate a major sacrifice on the part of the individual seeking it. There is an apprenticeship, which is a multi-year discipline. Whatever amount of control you want. The company’s president. Karate black belt. Guru in the metaphysical sense. Whatever you desire, you must put in the time, practice, and effort to achieve it. To obtain it, you must make many sacrifices. You would trust it a great deal. It is your strength until you have achieved it. It can’t be given away because it lives inside you. It’s the direct product of your hard work.
What’s fascinating about this method is that by the time someone has mastered the ability to kill with his bare hands, he has often grown to the point where he will not abuse it. As a consequence, such power comes with a built-in degree of control. The discipline of acquiring power transforms you so that you do not misuse it.
I don’t recall ever reading the book to the best of my memory. I did, however, watch all three films. And, for whatever reason, the scene in the movie where the text above is quoted (albeit, possibly paraphrased for brevity) has stayed with me.
