Metaphysics, Micro Worlds & Quantum Quackery
Take one part quantum physics, one part neuroscience, and blend well with the teachings of a 35,000-year-old warrior-god, and what do you have? The 2004 cult film, What the Bleep Do We Know?
Bleep is a docudrama about "Amanda," a photographer whose life is becoming unhinged. At every turn, she finds herself plunged deeper into existential crisis, wondering, "Who am I?" and "What is real?" Through a parade of interviews with physicists, psychologists, and New Age luminaries, we learn that quantum physics (of all things) holds the key to Amanda's dilemma. How so? Because the wrecking ball of modern science has shattered the "illusion" of objective reality.
