What the Bleep! Do We Know?

I'm watching What the Bleep!... with my husband, rented from Netflix. I've heard a lot about it from various LOA circles so figured I needed to go ahead and see what it was all about.

We still need to finish it. It's two and a half hours long, so that's a lot to get into an evening. Plus, we kept stopping the movie and discussing various aspects of it.

The movie stars Marlee Matlin (Children of a Lesser God, the L Word) as Amanda, a photographer who lives with a hippie type roommate who is very positive and outgoing. Amanda is going through a transformation after a painful breakup with her husband. Her story and the things she is experiencing is broken up with interviews with scientists, psychologists, and others.

The movie will definitely make you think and look at things from a new perspective. I especially love the parallel worlds. What is amazing though is that things that were thought of as science fiction even thirty years ago are being studied as real possibilities right now.

The movie can be hard to understand in places since Amanda's story keeps being broken up, but you can see how she is so close to a breakthrough in her personal life, close to breaking away from limiting beliefs and looking at possibilities in her life.

If you get a chance to watch the movie, go ahead and get it from Netflix (it was available for streaming too) and spend some time watching and discussing. It's refreshing to see that science is beginning to look honestly at things we used to think of as strictly spiritual and finding that they actually have a lot in common.

Have you seen What the Bleep?  What did you think?
