Interested in Quantum Physics?

One of the most successful documentaries of all time, What the Bleep Do We Know, first released in 2004, deals specifically with the ideas surrounding String Theory and the Cubist pursuit of representing fragmented reality. For those of you who would like to know more about the science behind the artistry, check out the website and film at </">www.whatthebleep.com> It's a must-see!

I had to watch "what the bleep" for forbidden knowledge...I HATED IT. i love Marlee Matlin, don't get me wrong...but i couldn't stand the philosophy behind it...especially the chick that looked like miss piggy, oh my god. i was so tormented having to watch it in class.

I also watched it for Forbidden Knowledge, but I got a lot out of it. The film sums up a lot of the theories and philosophies my professor, Jon Hodge, introduced us to.
The class is mind-blowing and so is this film. They prove reality-changing facts, like touch being a perception (sounds weird, but it's completely true, scientifically.) and they talk a lot about perceptions creating our reality. What the film introduced to me that the class didn't is the fact that people are addicted to certain emotions.
All in all, this film is amazing, and I think the everyone should take a look at it. It really can reveal a lot about our world which we aren't generally aware of.
