Today I had a 2 hour gap in the day, the good ole Luna cinema has $6.00 Wednesday and I needed a break.
So I thought I’d go see ‘What the Bleep Do We Know’, a much talked about movie that looks at how we determine what is real, where we come from, where we are going etc.
I had heard a lot about it and thought that even though I’d only get to see half of it before my next meeting, it’d still be worth the effort.
I fell asleep.
Its not to say I didn’t get some of the point :), but it was far from inspiring and a much bigger disappointment than I had expected. i won’t try and explain it all here, but the guts of it has to do with an understanding of qantum physics as a prism thru which to view this life and our experience of it.
I feel so shallow falling asleep in a movie everyone is talking about as deeply spiritual and vital to our understanding of what makes us tick…
I’ll get over it!
Here’s a review from the site I linked to above for anyone interested:
What the Bleep Do We Know!? is a unique cinematic creation – really three films in one, interwoven like a DNA helix, into an original tapestry.
It’s a documentary. It’s a story. It has mind-blowing special effects. These three elements combine to bring about a film experience that will rock your mind and lift your soul! It’s a new genre about a New Worldview for a new audience.
This outrageous film plunges you into a world where quantum uncertainty is demonstrated – where neurological processes, and perceptual shifts are engaged and lived by its protagonist – where everything is alive, and reality is changed by every thought.
It has been called by some theater goers The Handbook to The Matrix. Like The Matrix it shows you a greater reality behind the one we all accept as true, and you have the ability to create absolutely anything from your own thought while laughing all the way!
The difference between this film and that movie is that this isn’t science fiction. It’s even stranger. It’s real. And it’s the first film to say it. And it does so boldly and with a BLEEP of a lot of humor. And it’s being proven every day by minds like these.
