Editorial Reviews

Review

It's hard to easily categorize WHAT THE BLEEP DO WE KNOW? DISCOVERING THE ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES FOR ALTERING YOUR EVERYDAY REALITY: at once a science book and a self-help and spiritual guide, and based on a movie as well, it tackles the questions of uncertainty, the nature of reality, and how physical, mental and spiritual forces interact in shaping human reality. Don't expect any easy answers here: WHAT THE BLEEP DO WE KNOW is an overview of science and spiritual questions which sets out what is known about each, and points the reader in different directions where the outer limits of science and psyche embrace. Any considering the nature of consciousness, intelligence, reality, or attitude adjustment will find this packed with insights and lively discussion which is surprisingly easy to access considering the weight of the matters under review.

A very thought provoking book.

This book is full of thought-provoking ideas about the nature of reality, spirituality and quantum physics.

The Little Book of Bleeps: Excerpts from the Award-Winning Movie 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.

There will always be skeptics, especially when the topics raised are so controversial. But I would also say to these skeptics that they're missing the point of this entire book and film: possibilitiy. The point is to challenge our minds, to explore the possibilities.

Some critics have focused on the segment where it's stated that the brain doesn't recognize the difference between a real object and the thought of that object. Of course most of us know the difference between what is real and what is imagined. That's not the point here. What we should consider after hearing a statement like this how amazing the human brain is and perhaps study it further.

I know many hard-core scientists shy away from "New Age" ideas and the types of possibiliites presented here. But what this book intends to show is that science and spirituality can be compatible and that an open mind can lead to growth on many levels.

Check out the official "What the Bleep" web site. They recommend books on every topic mentioned in the film. And by the way, only 2 of the scientists in the film/book are associated with Ramtha. And you don't have to believe everything you read or hear in order to find this book (and film) fascinating.

So what's the worst that can come of this? People begin to ask questions and start reading more about science and spirituality. Sounds like a healthy education to me.

Great accompaniment to the movie that blows your mind. Not only are there great pics in the book, there are great quotes from the movie. This is the movie that keeps you thinking and pondering even after the lights go up. I've seen it three times and plan to buy the DVD when it comes out next year. This movie has helped me re-evaluate how I look at life! Awesome!

This movie isn't playing everywhere -- and there doesn't seem to be a DVD available, if there ever will be. More's the pity.

My experience with the movie was thus: The first time I saw it, I thought they simply didn't go far enough and that some things were presented with too much simplicity. I have since seen it twice more, and each time I've realized more deeply that the intent of the movie is to give you an 'Executive Overview' of Quantum physics, 'mind over matter' style meditation, and what I can only call "Chaos Magic". There's a lot of different things going on in this movie, and the filmmakers' did an excellent job of giving you the substance without involving you in the niggling details of the proofs. However, with some research afterwards, you'll find that it's all there-- the Water experiments, John Hagelin's DC meditation experiments, the whole works. This movie is going to be great for anyone who has questioned Coincidence for long enough to realize that Something is Going On Out There; it won't be so hot for someone who intended to learn about Quantum physics. Better off with a text book there, chum.

Select the outcome you want out of the quantum super-position of possible outcomes. Go from there.

I'm a physicist, or at least that's what my college diploma says. So it was with great interest that I picked up this book. I found it very interesting. I also found that there were great parts that I simply skipped.

First the good parts. The descriptions of quantum physics, told here without mathematics are as good as I've read anywhere. Some of the stranger effects like the ability of the electron to change orbits in an atom instantly, travelling faster than the speed of light, is very well described. So is the discussion that (and to a certain extent continues) split the physicists into two camps when quantum theeory was developed.

The other part of the book that I skipped is when they seem to get very involved with trying to relate physics with religion, specifically the new age religions involved with chanelling the 'thoughts' of a 'priest' from 35,000 years ago.

I think the physics descriptions so good that I'll recommend the book. I just skipped the new age cult stuff.
