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.

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
