Here is a partial transcript for the movie "What the (Bleep) do we know?" I do this as an additional study tool for this area. If you've kept up with this blog, you've seen how I think this movie is an incredible resource. Along with "The Secret", this is a must-have resource for anyone serious in re-programming themselves and creating the world of their dreams.
I don't do this to detract from the commercial success of this movie/DVD. Factually, they are doing quite well, having recently released a "Quantum Edition" which has TONS of data on it (see link). I've got a copy and recommend it to any who are interested.
(Had to split this up to get it posted, which continues to give me some difficulty.)

5: Radical Thinking
How can a system or an object be in two or more states at the same time?
It's very easy - Instead of thinking of things as things. We all have a habit of thinking that everything around us is already a thing existing without my input, without my choice. You have to banish that kind of thinking. Instead,you really have to recognize that even the material world around us - the chairs, the tables, the rooms, the carpet - camera included - all of these are nothing but possible movements of consciousness.
And I'm choosing moment to moment out of those movements to bring my actual experience into manifestation. This is the only radical thinking that you need to do. But it is so radical - It's so difficult because our tendency is that the world is already out there independent of my experience.
It is not. Quantum physics has been so clear about it. Heisenberg himself, codiscoverer of quantum physics said atoms are not things, they're only tendencies. So, instead of thinking of things you have to think of possibilities. They're all possibilities of consciousness.
You now can see in numerous labs around the United States objects that are large enough to be seen by the naked eye and they are in two places simultaneously. You can actually take a photograph of that. Now, I suppose if you showed a photograph, they'd say, "Oh. Great. "Here's this nice blob of colored light, and I see there's a bit of it over here and another bit -So you've got a picture of two dots. What's the big deal?"
You say, "Look right in the chamber. You can see it right there." "I see two things there." "No, no. That's not two things -That's one thing. It's the same thing in two places."
I'm not sure that people's jaw would drop about it because I don't think people really believe it. And I don't mean that people say, "Oh, you're lying," or "Oh, the scientists are confused." I think it is so mysterious that you can't even understand how amazing it is. And then, furthermore, you've seen Star Trek and whatnot.
"Beam me up, Scotty." So it all seems sort of "Oh, well, what does that really mean?" But you've gotta really stop and think about what that means -That it's the same object and it's in two places at once. When people tinker in the lab, and they get angry about things, and they have lunch and they go home and they lead their lives just as though nothing utterly astounding is happening because that's how you have to go about it - and yet, there's this completely amazing magic sitting right in front of your eyes.
Quantum physics calculates only possibilities but if we accept this, then the question immediately comes who, what, chooses among these possibilities to bring the actual event of experience? So we directly, immediately see that consciousness must be involved. The observer cannot be ignored.
We know what an observer does from a point of view of quantum physics but we don't know who or what the observer actually is. Doesn't mean we haven't tried to find an answer. We've looked. We've gone inside of your head. We've gone into every orifice you have to find something called an observer. And there's nobody home. There's nobody in the brain. There's nobody in the cortical regions of the brain. There's nobody in the subcortical regions or the limbic regions of the brain. There's nobody there called an observer.
And yet, we all have this experience of being something called an observer observing the world out there.
In my modeling, the observer is the spirit inside the four-layer biobodysuit. And so, it's like the ghost in the machine. It is the consciousness that's driving the vehicle and it is observing the surround. The four layers of the biobodysuit have all kinds of sensory systems to pick up signatures from the surround.
6: Affecting the Reality We See
In Washington, D.C., the so-called murder capital of the world there was a big experiment in the summer of where four thousand volunteers came from a hundred countries to collectively meditate for long periods of time throughout the day. It was predicted in advance that with such a sized group you would have a 25% drop in violent crime as defined by the F.B.I. in Washington that summer. Well, the chief of police went on television saying that "Look. It's gonna take two feet of snow to reduce crime by 25% in Washington, D.C. this summer." But by the end, the police department became a collaborator and author of this study because the results in fact showed a 25% drop in violent crime in Washington, D.C. which we could predict on the basis of previous studies that had already been done on a smaller scale.
This leads naturally to wonder do people - are people affecting the world of reality that they see? You betcha they are. Every single one of us affects the reality that we see even if we try to hide from that and play victim. We all are doin' it.
Our subway exhibit comes to us from Japan and Mr. Masaru Emoto. Mr. Emoto became terribly interested in the molecular structure of water and what affects it. Now, water is the most receptive of the four elements. Mr. Emoto thought perhaps it would respond to nonphysical events. So he set up a series of studies, applied mental stimuli and photographed it with a dark field microscope.
This first picture is a picture of water from the Fujiwara Dam. And this picture is the same water after receiving a blessing from a Zen Buddhist monk. Now in this next series of pictures Mr. Emoto printed out words, taped them to bottles of distilled water and left them out overnight.
This first photograph is the picture of the pure distilled water - just the essence of itself. These subsequent photographs, as you can see, are each different.
This is the "Chi of Love." And we move along here to "Thank You." And you can see where he taped that, to this bottle here. But if you read Japanese, you already knew that.
Now, Mr. Emoto speaks of the thought or intent being the driving force in all of this. The science of how that actually affects the molecules is unknown except to the water molecules, of course. And it's really fascinating when you keep in mind that 90% of our bodies are water.
Makes you wonder, doesn't it? If thoughts can do that to water imagine what our thoughts can do to us.
Absolutely - thought alone can completely change the body.
Most people don't affect reality in a consistent, substantial way because they don't believe they can. They write an intention and then they erase it, because they think that's silly -I mean - I can't do that. And then they write it again, and then they erase it. So time average, it's a very small effect. And it really comes down to the fact that they believe they can't do it.
If you accept with every rudiment of your being that you will walk on water, will it happen? Yes, it will. But you know, it's like positive thinking. It's a wonderful idea, positive thinking but what it usually means is that I have a little smear of positive thinking covering a whole mass of negative thinking. So thinking positive is not really thinking positive. It's just disguising the negative thinking that we have.
When we think of things, then we make the reality more concrete than it is and that's why we become stuck. We become stuck in the sameness of reality. Because if reality is concrete, obviously, I am insignificant. I cannot really change it. But if reality is my possibility - possibility of consciousness itself -then immediately comes the question of how can I change it? How can I make it better? How can I make it happier? You see how we are extending the image of ourselves?
In the old thinking, I cannot change anything because I don't have any role at all in reality. Reality is already there. It's material objects moving in their own way from deterministic laws and mathematics determines what they will do in a given situation. I, the experiencer, have no role at all. In the new view, yes, mathematics can give us something. It gives us the possibilities that all these movements can assume. But it cannot give us the actual experience that I'll be having in my consciousness.
I choose that experience. And therefore, literally, I create my own reality. It may sound like a tremendous, bombastic claim by some New Agey without any understanding of physics whatsoever but really quantum physics is telling us that.
7: A Strange Day
There are different worlds in which we live. There's the macroscopic world that we see. There's the world of our cells. There's the world of our atoms. There's the world of our nuclei. These are each totally different worlds. They have their own language. They have their own mathematics. They're notjust smaller - each is totally different. But they're complementary, because I am my atoms but I am also my cells. I'm also my macroscopic physiology. It's all true. They're just different levels of truth.
The deepest level of truth uncovered by science and by philosophy is the fundamental truth of unity. At that deepest subnuclear level of our reality you and I are literally one.
I wake up in the morning and I consciously create my day the way I want it to happen. Now, sometimes because my mind is examining all the things that I need to get done it takes me a little bit to settle down and get to the point of where I am actually intentionally creating my day.
But here's the thing. When I create my day and out of nowhere little things happen that are so unexplainable I know that they are the process or the result of my creation. And the more I do that, the more I build a neural net in my brain that I accept that that's possible it gives me the power and the incentive to do it the next day.
8: Concepts of God
When I was younger, um I had lots of ideas about what God was. And now I realize I'm not conscious enough to truly understand what that concept means.
That I am at one with the great being that made me and brought me here and that formed the galaxies and the universes, et cetera - how did that get taken out of religion? It was not hard. Most of the problems that religion and various philosophical movements down through the centuries have produced have been errors because that's where they're started - That God is a distinct separate being from us to whom I must offer worship, whom I must cultivate humor, please and hope to attain a reward from at the very end of my life. That is not what God is. That is a blasphemy.
God is such a broad thing um, some parts of which - most of the parts of which that are associated with organized religion is something that I sort of recoil at. It's something I think has done a lot of harm to the world, done harm to women done harm to oppressed peoples, done harm to the World Trade Center.
People fall into line very readily when they're threatened by these cosmic sentences of everlasting punishment. But this is not how God is. And once you start to question the traditional images, caricatures of God people feel you are an agnostic or an atheist or a subverter of the social order.
