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