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.

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 Chakras

 

The ChakrasCorrelations between Medical Science and Clairvoyant Observation, Shafica Karagulla, with Dora van Gelder Kunz, Wheaton: Quest Books, 1989.

This is an extraordinary book. I do research on the bioenergy since two decades, but I have not encountered so much information about such esoteric a subject in one single book. But I must warn the non-scientific reader: this isn’t a book for enhancing your general knowledge about the aura, and the chakras, and it is by no means a practical book, guidebook, or anything of the kind.

You got two medical practitioners here, one of which is a clairvoyant. The author herself, Shafica Karagulla, is the kind of traditional physician who writes with a lot of ‘faculty terms’, so to speak, using medical terminology all over the place. Further down, I’ll quote some examples. So think twice if you want to buy this book. For me personally, it was indispensable for my research. There are some elucidations in this book that I found earlier in my research, but only after studying tedious manuals and old hermetic writings.  Continue reading
