What do THEY know?

I must admit, I was mildly impressed with the film. However, as it pressed on I kept noticing a pattern. Nobody really knew what the hell they were talking about. The idea was to keep shoving you in a logical circle until you had no idea which direction was up. Granted, I'm sure most of the speakers were credible and very knowledgeable in whatever field they practiced, but none of them had enough knowledge about the subject to be delivering their theories as truth! Even they admit that there are so many ideas and so many possibilities in quantum science that nobody really has a clue as to what is going on.

However, there is one thing from the film that struck me as inspirational. The water test. The fact that words written on paper could change the molecular structure of water is such a nice thought. When added to the fact that our bodies are mostly water, it reinforces such beliefs that your attitude can have a direct effect on your health. So does that mean I can write "happiness" or "love" on my foot with a magic marker and all of a sudden I won't ever have another negative thought?

Yea...didn't think so.

I thought the water test was just about the only thing with some tangible proof.

I also kinda liked the part where they explained feelings and how we are connected to people when they fulfill the addictions we have, but over time, they fill those addictions less and less. It makes sense, but it is disheartening to think that we are that mechanic.

But i quote this all the time "to find the whole truth, you must test your beliefs against all opposition, then how will you know they are truly yours. You must look even into blatant lies because even in the midst of those lies, there could be a tidbit of truth."

I think it applies.
