Abstract: It is thus essentially faith as a gift- a gift of love that drives Cooper to sacrifice himself by throwing himself into Gargantuan and thus reach the tesseract constructed by future humans who exist in five dimensions who will allow him to communicate across space and time to Murph who will eventually save humanity with the equation that will allow them to transport existing humanity across time and space with gravity to another habitable planet in the galaxy. For all its science thus Interstellar remains a story of love and sacrifice. What will eventually save humanity from itself is love.
