What the Bleep Do We Know!?

 

What the Bleep Do We Know!? Rabbit Hole Quantum EditionDown the Rabbit Hole Quantum Edition, 20th Century Fox, 2006 (3 DVD Set).

What the Bleep Do We Know!? by William Arntz & Betsy Chasse was a companion for me over months without end. It was the most important documentary I have ever seen.

Life is complexity. Looking at it through the eyes of native peoples, the eyes of Albert Einstein, or the eyes of quantum physicists hardly makes a difference. Actually, the difference is one of precision. Most native tribes do not know much about the subatomic world, yet they know about uncertainty and nonlocality. They do not only know about it, but actively use these laws for connecting with the quantum field.

Most native shamans can be at two locations at the same time, they can relocate instantly, and travel back and forth in time. They do this not for fancy or as a pastime, but for healing people, for doing something useful to a community. And the field responds. Quantum physics teaches us that this is exactly how electrons behave, and electrons are in touch with the base layer of the universe, that is, the quantum vacuum, the level of the Planck scale.

In this review I would like to elucidate and review in some detail what scientists are saying in the movie What the Bleep Do We Know!? My idea is that, given the complexity of the subject, it may not suffice to watch the movie once or twice to really understand what is being said in the film. It is for this reason that I found the idea useful to just typescript some of the most interesting interviews. And I made the discovery that, although I have watched the movie, and even the complete Rabbit Hole Quantum Edition, several times, I got a more complete understanding of the various subjects treated in the movie only once I wrote interviews down word by word, and phrase by phrase.

Entangled Minds

 

ExEntangled Mindstrasensory Experiences in a Quantum Reality, New York: Paraview Pocket Books, 2006.

To be frank and straight right at the start, I find this book by Dean Radin much more interesting than his first book, The Conscious Universe, but this has to do with the simple fact that I am researching on these matters since two decades already; for me, the basic proof is since long established. However, I am well aware that such is not the case with the lay public, and thus I would recommend The Conscious Universe to those who are skeptical, or who are so bare of knowledge of psychic phenomena that they need to begin with Adam and Eve.

I shall first make some general remarks about the book, and then focus on Chapter 2 entitled Naked Psi, which deals for the most part with the highly intriguing premonitions of the September 11, 2001 events. Let us first ask, what is entanglement? Continue reading

Molecules of Emotion

 

Molecules of EmotionThe Science Behind Mind-Body Medicine, New York: Scribner, 2003.

I came to know about Candace B. Pert through the mind-boggling film What the Bleep Do We Know!?

I found her presence markedly impressive and right away ordered her book. Molecules of Emotion is not only an extraordinary scientific study, but it also comes with much autobiographic content. Candace Pert had the courage to reveal many details from her life as a female scientist.

Since the 1970s Candace Pert persisted in her vision of finding molecular evidence for the functionality of our emotions, and our sexuality, and more generally for mindbody medicine, within the boundaries of modern science.

The book, if all that additional information was taken out, would be a research paper, too thin to fill a book. And it would probably miss its goal entirely. It’s this holistic and empathic approach, and needless to add that it’s an artistic approach as well, that makes this book so unique. And it shows that this scientist was actually a great human.

The Field

 

The FieldThe Quest for the Secret Force of the Universe, New York: HarperCollins, 2002.

The Field by Lynne McTaggart is the book I always wanted to read because I always wanted to write it. I always wanted to write a study that proves that all what myopic modern science excludes, exists. And here is this book. It reads almost like a thriller, so captivating it is, and the author is able to convey the complex material in understandable terms.

It is obvious that she understands what she writes about, and some of the quantum physics stuff really is not easy to grasp.

The author argues from the premise that all in our universe is interconnected, that nothing is isolated, or, as scientists say, that all is entangled. Now, when you put up such a point of departure, a lot of consequences flow out from this. Continue reading

The Self-Aware Universe

 

The Self-Aware UniverseHow Consciousness Creates the Material World, New York: Tarcher/Putnam, 1995

What Amit Goswami can express poetically, in The Self-Aware Universe, not many can express it ever in words. But his poetry, to paraphrase Emerson, has an edge to it. The edge is quantum physics.

Goswami’s genius is his ability to express very complex insights and relationships in a simple poetic language that even the lay reader can understand. Continue reading

The Secret Life of Water

 

The Secret Life of WaterNew York: Atria Books, 2005.

The Secret Life of Water, when you compare it with Masaru Emoto’s first book, The Hidden Messages in Water, is something like the scientific back office of water research.

Here, Masaru Emoto really explains what hado really is, this strange concept that seemingly was unknown in our own culture until very recently, except among natural healers and clairvoyants. Yet it is a very old concept, part of the treasure of ancient Japanese wisdom, and thereby part of perennial science.

Once I got familiar with this knowledge tradition, I found a number of other books about hado, as for example sending out hado by deliberate intent for healing, or learning the hado of cooking. Myself a passionate chef, I always wondered how it is possible that two people using the same recipe, and the same kitchen for cooking the same food can end up with cooking food that tastes differently. While the dish may even look the same, the taste is different. Continue reading

The Hidden Messages in Water

 

The Hidden Messages in WaterNew York: Atria Books, 2004.

I learnt about Masaru Emoto’s water research in the film What The Bleep Do We Know!? It was an information that really left me speechless, and I ordered his books at once.

I will not enter here the discussion about the credibility of his research. Allegedly, his water photography technique is not meeting the standard of double-blind tests. So, I will base my book reviews strictly on quotes taken from the books, and try to check his research back with my own twenty years of bioenergy research.

This is an approach that allows me to avoid judging the controversy, or any of the positions as ‘right’ or ‘wrong,’ yet it helps to see that there is a certain probability that the memory of water is likely to reflect a certain bioenergetic functionality inherent in nature. Continue reading
