What the Bleep Do We Know!?

What the Bleep Do We Know!?
a 2004 film which combines documentary-style interviews, computer-animated graphics, and a narrative that shows a spiritual connection between quantum physics and consciousness.
Some ideas discussed in the film are:
  • The universe is best seen as constructed from thought (or ideas) rather than from substance.
  • "Empty space" is not empty.
  • Matter is not solid. Electrons pop in and out of existence and it is unknown where they disappear to.
  • Beliefs about who one is and what is real form oneself and one's realities.
  • Peptides manufactured in the brain can cause a bodily reaction to an emotion.
Scientists who have reviewed What the Bleep Do We Know!? have described distinct assertions made in the film as pseudoscience. Amongst the concepts in the film that have been challenged are assertions that water molecules can be influenced by thought (as popularized by Masaru Emoto),that meditation can reduce violent crime rates, and that quantum physics implies that "consciousness is the ground of all being."

Masaru Emoto is a Japanese author known for his controversial claim that if human speech or thoughts are directed at water droplets before they are frozen, images of the resulting water crystals will be beautiful or ugly depending upon whether the words or thoughts were positive or negative. Emoto claims this can be achieved through prayer, music or by attaching written words to a container of water. These claims have been strongly criticized as pseudoscience.

With the help of fourteen leading quantum physicists, scientists and spiritual thinkers, the filmmakers guide readers on a course from the scientific to the spiritual, and from the universal to the deeply personal. They also bring up some Great Questions they have asked themselves, as a guide to further exploration.

  • Are we seeing the world as it really is?
  • What are thoughts made of?
  • What is the relationship between our thoughts and our world?
  • Are we biologically addicted to certain emotions?

I recommend to watch this film with over 15 hours of material on 6 DVD sides.
