This movie is a good intro for those just beginning to grasp the idea that life is more than what you experience with your five senses. Not that our five human senses aren't enough--in fact, they are not to be taken for granted. But there are are those that seek more explanation about life than others. You can chose to ignore the other reviewers that feel this movie is worthless. It is for them and that's fine. And if you view it, and think so, too--so be it. But at least decide for yourself. Science is a story, like most other academic disciplines. The theories change, and it's only the fearless that have the open minds to embrace this. We've shifted from a Newtonian model, to Einstein's models, to Heisenburg's thoeries... what's next? Can you honestly say you know? Let the stories continue to inspire us, let us design more creative, but airtight experiments, and let the data speak. As for gettig published in journals like Nature, you've got to admit there might be politics surrounding such a new idea. You think? Not that one scientist in history EVER was disbelieved by his or her peers, and later found out to be true. Highly improbable, right?

Quantum Mechanics is definitely a fascinating and legitimate field of science... Sorry to burst your "we are God and we can make our lives run better if we believe hard enough," bubble, but this movie's got it all wrong. Yes, parallel universes is a legitimate theory. Yes, quantum particles have been known to behave strangely. No, you can not go back in time and exist in two places at once. One scene in the movie, which I assume serves as an analogy of what these people believe, involves the main character going into this basketball court of Quantum-believe-and-it-will-happen-ness to play with this boy. The woman, having not shot a basket in years, goes back in time like a quantum particle so that she can shoot the basket. Welcome to the macrocosm... guess what? I am not a quantum particle, you are not a quantum particle, the "experts" (who have questionable qualifications, one of them still studying to be a theoretical physicist) in this movie are... and this is the real shocker... ARE NOT QUANTUM PARTICLES! You, nor I, nor anybody who you have a social relationship with do not have the same rules opperating on us. Just close your eyes and meditate for a moment. Try to use your thoughts to control the universe at the quantum level. Make the quantum particles vibrate in such a way to make something you really want to happen happen. Did it work? If it did, then publish a paper in Nature. If not, then you have just debunked this movie. The movie also makes the claim that by thinking positive thoughts, the ice crystals formed by water when it freezes will change based on the thought. I've been to the website and was shown pictures of an ice crystal formed by Thank You in Japanese, Thank You in English, and Thank You in French. They all looked different. But no matter what country you live in, isn't the thought the same? Alas, I think I've found the motive for the whole segment with the water. The Japanese man who made his "discoveries" about water crystals sells his Indigo Water at $35 for a months supply with the claim that one ounce of concentrate Indigo Water added to one gallon of regular distilled water makes... eight gallons of Indigo Water. I've spent as much time on this as I'd like to spend on something like this... Bottom line: I can't make anyone think a certain thing. If you really want to see the movie, see it, but do so skeptically. Investigate other websites when you're done and find out the truth about their claims. As for the message about loving yourself, sure. You're a beautiful person, respect yourself... And being the lovely human that you are, do something good and intelligent for yourself and don't accept what they're telling you in this movie. The next thing you know, you'll be buying "Indigo Water."

    Pure Insight

    A fantastic movie "Further down the rabbit hole" is better for it gives deeper perspectives. Not for mind numbing entertainment, Bruce Willis type. But definatley for mind bending alternative perspectives on the universe, life, science and spirituallity. Where the two cross and merge, if you are intreged by questions like! Where does line of science and spiritualness meet? This surley gives us a perspective. Definatley for the forward thinker, not for kids or adults who like shoot em ups, and so forth.

    I Also Recommend:

    I passed for awhile but then one day......

    The "What the Bleep Down the Rabbit Hold" followed "What The Bleep Do We Know" which was also excellent.

    You are exposed to so many interesting and useful concepts and information and yet it is in an entertaining and understandable format. Suddenly I am hearing physics in a way that I can understand! But it is not just about physics, to many concepts and theories to describe here.

    If you want to preview both "What the Bleep Do We Know" visit your public library to see if it is on the shelf. Try it before you out before you buy it. I have not seen the "What the Bleep Down the Rabbit Hold" in the Albuquerque library systems ~ but check in case it has been added. They are both worth your time.
