What the BLEEP do we know?

How many have viewed the movie or read any of the books enititled: What the BLEEP Do We Know?

[http://https:www.whatthebleep.com What the BLEEP link]

I just viewed the shorter version of "Down the Rabbit Hole", and would like to have some opinion on whether it is worth my while to veiw the extended (6 DVD) version of it?

New Age/Cult gobbeldygook, I know, Ramtha told me.

There is quite a "discussion" on quantum physics in parts of it however.....those are what I found "relevant".
Yes, but do you want to get your science from a cult fronted by a middle aged soccer mom who "channels" a 35,000 year old Atlantean?

Salon says it even better

No, but some of them were scientists in the movie. Besides, it is not really fair to fault the actress, for the content of the movie. I have seen her in many different movies already. She really is deaf. The science came from the scientists involved (at the end there was the disclaimer that not all participants agreed with each other over aspect illustrated in the movie.
I'm not faulting the actress,and yes I'm familiar with Marlee Matlins body of work. However, I will leave it to you to look at the reputations of some of the "Scientists", and at least one of the scientists stated that his segment was cut and edited to completely misrepresent his position.
You wrote, "I'm not faulting the actress,and yes I'm familiar with Marlee Matlins body of work." Right. Good and proper actors do whatever work they're hired to do.

I recently saw a wonderful exchange with Michael Caine, which went something like this (paraphrased from memory), "Have you seen Jaws 4?" "No, but I've seen the house it bought me. It's very nice." You can call it pandering, but I call it the right attitude for a professional actor.

In any event, the real complaint I have with this production (besides it's utter bastardization of good science), is that the producers misled professional scientists, who are not professional actors, into making satements which were then mangled to support the movie's premise.

Ok, well just so you know, I wasn't defending the metaphysical / mystical side of the movie.....it is probably good to have read a few books on the subject of Quantum physics before seeing the movie, so one can sift out the sand and dirt from the facts. :-)

PS: I finally saw your link and read the contents there....
Hi, Goodhart. The "quantum physics" is just borrowing jargon and terminology and misapplying it, without understanding (okay, without giving a f***ing s**t about) the underlying mathematics or physics. As TUA summarized, "New Age gobbeldygook", dressed up using scientific-sounding words.

. I haven't seen that particular one, but most of the ones I've seen/read were a mixture of real science and TUA's "New Age/Cult gobbeldygook." Judging by the web site, this is more of the same. I think you have sense enough to distinguish between the two. I found all of them interesting, although not necessarily informative. . Worth your while? Probably. If nothing else, it should make a good read. . Worth the money? Probably not - unless you are getting it at the library. . . PS: I gave up trying to understand Quantum Physics - it's all just magic to me. I can understand how observing disturbs the observee, but the business about things not really being there until they are observed is too much for me. If a tree falls in the forest ...
