    • Today the site is officially one month old. After seeing EQ the first time in December, I never could have imagined that only a few months later much of my time would be dedicated to building a website for it. This is the impact it has had not only on myself but many like me. Thank you once again Kurt Wimmer, cast, and crew for creating Equilibrium; for giving us something extraordinary disguised as mere entertainment. I must also express my appreciation to all of those who have assisted and contributed to making this site so gratifying. Your contributions and comments add character, imagination, and depth, thank you. - JenGe  (thanks to Roy for the Tetragrammaton symbol)
