About the Author

Alexandra Bruce's articles on urban legends, metaphysical and quantum physics themes have been published in Paranoia Magazine, Steamshovel Press, Borderland Sciences and Disinfo.com.

More About the Author


I graduated from Brown University with a BA in Semiotics, additional studies of cultural criticism, film theory and production at l'Université de la Sorbonne in Paris and NYU Film School.

When I was youngster, I had my own production company and I produced/directed/edited over 40 music videos for the major music conglomerates during the heyday of the video music era, including Sony, Universal, Polygram, Def Jam, Profile Records, Jive Records, Island Records, MCA, etc. (These guys' ownership switch hands so often, it was and continues to be an actual real-time blur).

I've been in the trenches for the past two decades, in film/television/catalog/book production, DVD publishing and marketing, cable TV advertising sales, and the promotion of my six (soon to be 7) published books on television, radio and the Internet.

I am Brazilian-American. I have a massive, loving and incredibly dynamic family. I have one full-, one half- and five step-brothers and sisters. I have 15 nieces and nephews and so many cousins and second-cousins, whose children who I consider to be my own nieces and nephews, as well as lifelong family friends who *are* family, including their kids...My family lives on three or four continents (when I last checked).

It's gotten to the point, where I just see everyone as family...how very blessed I am, with my immense, loving family...

I studied psychology and philosophy, so I naturally enjoyed this book.

If you are at all interested in learning more about bringing change to reality, read this book and see the movie!
Deborah Stephens
It took me a month to finish the book and now I'm going to read it again.

As a physics buff, I generally don't find my way into the new age section of the bookstore, or even watch new-agey films. Wind chimes sound like fingernails on a blackboard to me. But all my friends were lauding about this What The Bleep movie, and so rather than get sucked into another unpleasant movie experience, I picked up this little guide book to get a sense what all their clamor was about.

I was pleasantly surprised to see some really hard science being tackled by the author Alexandra Bruce in a really accessible, welcoming way. And even the New Age stuff was pretty palatable to my rational materialist mindset.

The makers of the film should consider Beyond The Bleep a welcome gift, because not only did I go see the movie, but talked for hours with my friends about it. What a really interesting, thought-provoking film! This book helped to open the door for me to an alternate way at looking at the universe.

This book is a great companion to "What the Bleep?", a movie that opened a lot of doors for me but left so many unanswered questions in its wake. Just like a ship on the horizon that you can't see because you don't have a context for it, "What the Bleep?" went over some people's heads, but luckily this book is here to assist... it goes way farther than the movie, going more in-depth into the science and touching on topics like the Conscious Universe, even magick... and it even examines the "What the Bleep" phenomenon itself, exploring people's reactions to the film and the, er, "cult" that has begun to grow around it. All in all, a very well-rounded and worthwhile look at an important cultural event.

I recently watched and enjoyed the documentary "What the Bleep Do We Know?" but came away knowing that I must have missed a lot of what was said (not being a quantum physicist and all...). This litlte book is like a "Bleep for Dummies," only it doesn't pander! I really appreciate the clarity and rigor that the author, Alexandra Bruce, invested in the work. She also avoids making too many editorial comments, letting her audience draw their own conclusions. I feel I have a much firmer grasp of the film's concepts, and the book has deepened my interest in the field as a whole. I feel really inspired and motivated to keep exploring...

Format: Paperback
What The Bleep Do We Know has become a groundbreaking film that has inspired a growing exploration of spiritual, philosophical, and social issues raised by the film. Alexandra Bruce is a rather unconventional writer/journalist, who once produced music videos, prior to her writing career in which she has focused on underground and sub-culture phenomena. This is the 2nd book I've read by the author, the 1st being The Philadelphia Experiment Murder: Parallel Universes & The Physics of Insanity.

So Alexandra continues here in Beyond the Bleep with the theme of challenges to conventional ideas about the nature of reality. In this case, she offers a whimsical tour of the personalities involved in the What The Bleep project, giving a fairly even-handed account of their theories and their professional histories. She does not hide her personal feelings, as she seems to appreciate what the film producers have created and at times gripes against right wing politics and religious fundamentalism in the USA.

This book is small and compact but contains lots of information. I personally find Alexandra Bruce's style pleasant, as she is able to shift gears easily, going from scientific discussions to humorous commentaries. Alexandra is insightful and I tend to agree with a lot of her thoughts. She provides a useful glossary in the book and a list of resources for further study. I find it interesting that she refers to a website associated with a woman named Laura Knight-Jadczyk and her husband Ark Jadczyk, who just so happens to be a quantum physicist -and thus my prime suspect for Alexandra's anonymous physicist commentator.

I picked this up on impulse after looking at the table of contents and it really helped me get so much more from the wonderful What The Bleep movie. Alexandra Bruce writes that she's not affiliated with the moviemakers in her intro and the book really benefits from being a little removed from the people in the film. She is clearly a fan of the film and some of the people in it, but not to the extent that she won't describe some of the controversies swirling around it. Two thumbs up - a great complement to the DVD. Watch out for the "official" book coming soon - should be great too!

Beyond The Bleep: The Definitive Unauthorized Guide to What the Bleep Do We Know!?(Purchased on 08/12/2005)

I heard about the low budget movie "What the Bleep Do We Know?" and went to see it in down town Sacramento movie hall. I enjoyed it so much I purchased the film. I tried to talk to my friends about it. I even bought two more films to pass out to my friends. My "flatland" skeptic friends could not believe that I would even want to see such a film. They found everything wrong with it. I felt like Galileo or Copernicus trying to let them know that the sun does not revolve around the earth. I looked at my film at least ten times trying to write down all the words of wisdom emanating from the great thinkers who were scientist and other academics in the film.

Then I found the book "The Little Book of Bleeps" that had all the words I wanted to ponder that were in the film. As I e-mailed more friends about my excitement knowing that "we create our own reality," most of my friends again put the book down by explaining the fallacies of all the great thinkers who were scientist and other academics in the film---But, what do my friends know?

Then I found "Beyond the Bleep" that goes into detail about all the ideas and the thinkers who came up with these ideas. This film "WTBDWK" is about quantum physics, spirituality---and the meaning of life. This ambitious film attempts to answer existential questions such as: What is God? What are emotions? What is the soul? And what we all want to know why are we here?

I was so caught up with quantum physics; I ordered some lectures about quantum physics for the non-scientist from the Teaching Company. That gave me the vocabulary to understand "WTBDWK."

That wasn't enough for me. Amazon.
