Who are we? Where do we come from? Why are we here? What is our purpose? What is a reality? What should we do? Where are we going? If you keep asking these questions and haven’t been found satisfied answers so far, you might be at the right place. Read What the bleep do we know summary, this movie might challenge your thinking and broaden your perspective.
It is a thought-provoking movie, which explores the nature of our reality, from quantum physics to mysticism. It follows Amanda (Academy Award-winner Marlee Matlin), a divorced photographer whose concept of reality is challenged, and reveals the quantum world hidden behind what we consider to be our real world.
What the bleep do we know was written and produced by William Arntz, Betsy Chasse, and Mark Vicente. It gathers experts in quantum physics: David Albert, Ph.D., Dr. Joe Dispenza, Amit Goswami, Ph.D., John Hagelin, Ph.D., Stuart Hameroff, M.D., Dr. Miceal Ledwith, Ph.D., Daniel Monti, M.D., Andrew B. Newberg, M.D., Candace Pert, Ph.D., Jeffrey Satinover, M.D., William Tiller, Ph.D. and Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D., who try to answer fundamental questions of our reality.
However, more you look at quantum physics, the more mysterious and wondrous it becomes. It is so mysterious that you can’t even understand how amazing it is. So, how far down the rabbit hole do you want to go?
Quantum physics is a physics of possibilities. Observer chooses among possibilities to bring the actual event into an experience. The observer is the consciousness that is observing surrounding.
We are always the observer in a science, so we are constrained in seeing and perceiving the things we do. It comes down that this is just a great illusion and we have no way of getting out to see what is really out there.
Why do we keep re-creating the same reality if we have an infinite number of possibilities? Why do we keep having the same relationships? Why do we keep having the same jobs and so on? We have an infinite number of possibilities but we are unaware of them. We are conditioned to our daily lives and believe that we have no control at all. We believe that the external world is more real than our internal world. Quantum physics says just the opposite – what is happening within us will create what is happening outside of us.
Quantum superposition implies that a particle (wave) can be in many places simultaneously, experiencing many possibilities until we choose, and then collapsing into just one of those possible positions.
When you are not looking, there are waves of possibility. When you are looking, there are particles of experience.
Material world around us is nothing but possible movements of consciousness. Every given moment we choose among these movements to bring our experience into manifestation.
We are conditioned to think that the world is already out there independent of our experience. But atoms are not things, they are only tendencies. Therefore, instead of thinking of things, we have to think of possibilities because they are all possibilities of consciousness.
What is a reality?
Scientific experiences have shown that the brain does not know the difference between what it sees and what it remembers because the same specific neural networks are firing in both cases.
The brain processes 400 billion bits of information a second but we are only aware of 2000 bits. Our awareness of those 2000 bits of information is just about the environment, time and our body.
So is it possible that our eyes see more than what our brain has the ability to consciously project? Our brain is wired up in a way that we only see what we believe is possible. We match patterns that already exist within ourselves through conditioning.
How do we create our reality?
Most people do not affect reality in a consistent, substantial way because they don’t believe they can. They write an intention and then they erase it because they think that is silly. The fact is that they believe they cannot do it.
Positive thinking is a wonderful idea but usually, people have a whole bunch of negative thinking going around, so just occasional positive thinking does not really make the difference.
When we think of things, reality seems to be more concrete than it is, and that is why we appear to be insignificant. We cannot really change our reality because we believe that we do not have any role in our reality. Reality is already there. Material objects are moving in their own way from deterministic laws, and mathematics determines what they will do in a given situation. We have no role at all.
However, if we see reality as a possibility of consciousness then immediately comes the question of how can we influence it? Mathematics gives us possibilities that all these movements can assume, and then we choose the experience that we will have in our consciousness. We choose that experience, and therefore literally create our own reality.
We build up models of how we see the world around us, and more information we have, the more we refine our model one way or another. We tell ourselves a story about what the outside world is. Any information that we process is colored by the experiences that we had and an emotional response that we have to what we are bringing in.
An average person who considers their life boring or uninspiring has made no attempt to gain knowledge and information that will inspire them. Most people are hypnotized by their environment through the media, television, and people, creating an idea that life is a struggle and live their life in mediocracy. Their desire may never really rise to the surface.
However, if it does rise to the surface and they ask themselves fundamental questions about life… they start to interact with the perception that they may be having a nervous breakdown and in reality, what they are doing is that their old concepts of how they viewed their life and the world start to fall apart. We are rewiring the brain and literally reconnecting to a new concept. Then ultimately, it changes us from the inside out.
Quantum physics takes us where we can understand our relationship to things and people in a deeper way and we can ultimately make more meaning for ourselves in our world. We have to decide what we want and then put all focus and awareness on it. The moment we become so involved in that experience that picture becomes the only picture that is real, and then it has to become our reality. That is quantum physics in action.
Every single one of us affects the reality that we see
In the Washington D.C., there was a big experiment in the summer of 1993, where 4000 volunteers came from a hundred countries to collectively meditate for long periods of time throughout the day. On the basis of 48 previous studies that had already been done on a smaller scale, it was predicted that with such a sized group there would be a 25% drop in violent crime. Police department itself became collaborator and author of this study because results showed a 25% drop in violent crime.
Mr. Masaru Emoto gained worldwide acclaim for his research and discovery on what affects the molecular structure of water. His experiment included bottles filled with water that was exposed to a positive or negative influence. The water in bottles with positive messages and blessings formed beautiful molecular structures, while bottles with negative messages formed ugly molecular structures. He believed that water was connected to our individual and collective consciousness and that thought or intent was the driving force that created results. So “if thoughts can do that to water imagine what our thoughts can do to us.”
People hardly accept quantum physics view because on one hand there is no tangible proof that it works and on the other hand, with accepting the idea that we are creating our experience comes responsibility.
I think everyone has to decide for themselves. If you think it is easier to be a victim in this world and to blame circumstances when something unwanted happens, that’ s fine. If you think you could create wonderful experiences, go for it! Whatever you decide, just make sure it serves you. Eventually, everyone will get what he/she believes.
