What the Bleep do we know?

Just saw this movie and it was great. If you have ever considered that there is something more to us, then you must see it. If you have ever wondered why you are here, you gotta see this. It blew me away. Quantum Physics at its best!

Fascinating, I would also recomend the NOVA program "The Elegant Universe" based off the book by Brian Greene.

That deals more with Superstring theory but it does so without the mathematics, a good base that covers most things quite well, GR and QM included.

From what I read about this movie, it takes complex concepts in physics and makes them understandable.

yeah, its really cool. Marlee Matlin is the actress that is questioning her life and existance. and it is very understandable. our church went as a group outing last night and it was really fun especially since alot of the concepts are what we practice, i.e. the oneness of everyone, etc.

i give it

I saw it. There was nothing new in it for me (just because I've been interested in quantum physics for a long time) and the way it was done sort've irritated me--I thought it was kind of cheesy. Yet it was an impressive amount of information and theories all in one place. All in all I would recommend it, especially if you are new to quantum physics.

I just saw it, what a piece of utter tripe, if you were to read one chapter in a high school physics book then mix it with a bunch of pseudoscientific bollocks and cultish metaphysics I think that this would be the result.

The bloody Ramtha cult goons and positive thinking make your own reality nonsense, jeez. I stand by my prior recomendation watch the Nova documentary The Elegant Universe instead, or better yet read the book.

Pseudoscientific docu-drama really makes for some great laughs, it is not science it is new agey fashionable nonsense.

More science less nonsense!

Brian Greene
I can't wait for the library to get his latest book, dying to read it.

What the Bleep Do We Know did really well at the theater I work near, but it looked like it would annoy me since I've been interested in this stuff for years, (nothing new, like joyfulgirl said) so I haven't seen it.

i personally did not liekt he movie, the concept however is quite fascianting but the way they did the movie was horrible!!!! Cheesy acting, and even worse cheesy animation in a sorry attempt to be funny. They should have stuck with commentary.

Waking Life, that i recommend
