What the Bleep do we know!?

Not too much according to Dr. Holmes, who presents
a radical critique of this popular new age movie nightmare.

    This new age movie represents a completely erroneous and fanciful understanding of the nature of human beings, and the mysteries of consciousness and the mind.  It ignores the most important questions and evidences concerning the issues of consciousness, the heart, spirit and soul, and obscures the truth more than illuminating it.  New age concepts are dressed up in a superficial quasi-scientific manner, and huge gaps remain between the quantum world and the world of the psyche or spirit.  The movie fosters numerous mis-understandings and confusion, although it certainly has some valuable elements.  It begins nicely with the Void, but everything else is downhill.  Read Dr. Holmes' critical review and alternative perspective, and his recommendations for film makers.
The movie What the Bleep do we know!? certainly starts out on a brief positive note, and has some very positive teaching or lessons.  In the beginning, they have the void, and infinite possibilities.  Further, the new physics is the "physics of possibilities,"  as sub-atomic quanta are spread out as waves of probability, until the observer collapses the wave function of the quanta, so that it manifests as a discrete particle.    This logic is then applied to understanding a human beings' life where there are all these possible outcomes and possibilities, and we as observers will collapse certain wave functions, and not others.  One of the main themes of the movie is that we, by our thoughts and intentions, play a role in bringing about some of these 'possibilities,' out of the infinite possibilities.   Just as an observer effects the observed, and collapses the wave function of a quanta forcing it to manifest as a discrete particle instead of a wave of probabilitiy; so also, our thoughts and addictions create our life circumstances.  We are told that what happens within creates what happens without, our reality.  The question is then explored  of "why do we keep recreating the same realities?" This theme is then explored through the movie in terms of the woman struggling to cope with life, deal with her varied neurosis, and find herself again.  The movie thus also looks at our patterns of self defeating thoughts and emotions, and addictive behaviours; and encourages us to more consciously participate in our lives.

    These are some of the valuable elements within this movie.  Further What the Bleep deserves credit as a first effort to create a new genre of movies--perhaps for those tired of fortuitous violence, inhumanity and sex crimes, bravo and sexual titilation.

    However, from my perspective as a mystic, psychologist and scientist, what is missing from the movie is more notable than what it explicates.  What is missing are any understanding of the mysteries and enigmas of consciousness, the mind and the heart, any understanding of the nature of spirit and soul, any ideas of the physics and metaphysics of consciousness and the multi-dimensional universe, and any practical teaching of how to awaken and experience self-realization.  What is missing in the movie is  the science of the soul! or science of consciousness, although I think that the filmakers imagine that they provide this.

    The movie generally is based on 'new age' philosophy, and not upon the esoteric mystical or spiritual psychologies of humanity, which are profoundly deeper than simplistic formulas of some new age philosophies.  This movie asks "What the Bleep to we know," but doesn't even mention the most profound enigmas that humankind is currently facing in our quest 'TO KNOW.'  There is no serious exploration in the movie of the nature of human consciousness, nor of the scientific evidence and theories of soul or spirit, and there is no mention on the importance of 'the human heart.'  !!!  As a whole, the movie lacks heart, and it is based implicity on the pseudo-scientific "head doctrine," of modern times.  Although the issue of the nature and origin of human consciousness is the most profound one in psychology and science today, the number one enigma, no effort is made to investigate this.  Further, the ideas offered along this line as the nature and role of human consciousness are totally misleading, based on the 'head doctrine' of modern times.  Further, even the emotional centre within a human being is identified more with the limbic system, sub-cortical areas, and the circulation of neuro-peptides--and again, there is no heart.

    As the yogis state, until your heart opens, you will be driven crazy by the monkeys of the mind.  And this movie nightmare certainly has enough crazyness in it to leave most viewers dazed and confused.   There exist today far more advanced conceptions on this subject of "What the bleep do we know," than anything offered in this movie.  And so,  Dr. Holmes replies, unfortunately, "you didn't know too f..king much."  Further, we have to go deeper into these issues, and clear up the multiple levels of confusion created by a movies such as What the Bleep?

 Most seriously, the movie tends to view human beings dualistically-as a mind/body complex, and the nature of consciousness is never really addressed.  Certainly, there is no mention of the heart or soul.  The movie is based on the pseudo-scientific idea of modern times that the brain in the head produces consciousness--which elsewhere I call "the head doctrine."   It also takes sub-cortical areas of the brain and the neuropeptides as the basis of human emotions, but never is there any psychology of the heart--not only as a centre of emotional experience, but as the centre of the I experience.  There is no understanding of the mystical process of self-realization through the awakening of the heart, which is the only teaching that will awaken humankind to the deeper levels of the Self, and of multi-dimensional reality.  Even the music group, Papa Roach know more about the nature of the human being, in the lyrics to Between Angels and Insects, than Ramtha in his wiseacring.

"TELL 'EM WHAT YOU HEARD
IT'S ABOUT A REVOLUTION IN YOUR HEART
AND IN YOUR MIND ...


CAUSE EVERYTHING IS NOTHING
AND EMPTINESS IS IN EVERYTHING
THIS REALITY IS JUST A FUCKED UP DREAM
WITH THE FLESH AND THE BLOOD
THAT YOU CALL YOUR SOUL
FLIP IT INSIDE OUT, IT'S A BIG BLACK HOLE ...."
(Lyrics from Between Angels and Insects, heavy metal group, Papa Roach)
Might such poets of the heart and soul really know something that the head scientists and new age philosopher have not yet imagined?  That within the heart, there might be some big black hole, or mini-hole, and that emptyness is in everything, especially at the Heart of being.
    In modern times, there is a whole science to the heart and mind, and human consciousness, which is not even touched upon by this fanciful movie.  It lacks heart, fails to explore consciousness or the extended faculties of the mind, or the nature of the multi-dimensional reality in which we live and move, and have our being.  We must do better.  Hello out there, anybody home.
