This movie had some overlapping/similar sections to Disc 1; however, there were some new points I’d love to share:
– Example of Native American Indians when Christopher Columbus first sailed to America: because the Indians never saw a ship before, they didn’t allow themselves to accept/or “see” the boats arriving to shore. This brings it back to us…if we’re going around w/our tainted sunglasses seeing only what we want to see and accepting only the things we want to accept what other things in life are we missing out on?
– Eyeglass experiment: scientist told subjects to wear eyeglasses that turned their vision upside down (so trees, people, dogs, cars…everything looked upside down). After wearing these upside down glasses for a while subjects’ eyes formed a new neural connection to make these upside down images right side up b/c the mindset couldn’t accept the reality of the upside down world. Because of neuroplasticity, the human brain Read the rest of this entry »
Continuing on with Disc 1 movie review of “What the Bleep? Down the Rabbit Hole” here are some more interesting themes/concepts:
- Addictions (smoking, overeating, shopping, sex, unproductive relationships, drugs, alcohol, chocolate, etc.)
According to Joseph DiSpenza, DC, an addiction is “something you can’t stop”. He also explains how the cells of our body have biochemical needs or cravings, and that as humans we want to naturally bring to ourselves situations that will fulfill those needs/cravings. So over time, when people become addicted to food, drugs, sex, cigarettes, etc. it is because they continually keep giving into these needs and are not in charge of their emotional state. If you cannot be in charge of your own emotional state around food, drugs, alcohol, sex, shopping, smoking, etc. then you are addicted to it.
In order to be in charge of one’s emotional state conscious awareness needs to be involved. How can someone incorporate awareness? Through journaling, meditation, mindfulness exercises, and/or Read the rest of this entry »
Wow what a movie! It’s the most thought provoking movie I’ve seen since Inception w/Leonardo DiCaprio. Good thing I had a notebook and pen. Some of the concepts that stood out for me:
- Brain processes/stores/retrieves 400 billion (yes that is a “b”) bits of information but the average human only uses 2,000 bits of information at a time. Just image all that unused potential! Speaking of “potential”…quantum physics and quantum mechanics are all about “potential”.
- In a study where particles passed through an open slit: when there was an observer, the results were different. This is HUGE! Because this scientifically proved that with “observation” or what I like to call “awareness” or “mindfulness” the outcome changed. So one can theorize that one can change other types of outcomes with the awareness, or observation, of thought (AKA “intention). Conversely, when your thoughts change your results change just by the mere fact of observation. How cool is that? How great is it to know that you, I, anyone can change their destiny with more awareness/mindfulness/observation? This was a light bulb moment for me! Mega wattage!
- Dr. Masuro Emoto’s water crystal experiment where his lab took pictures of water crystals before and after a “mental stimuli” (AKA thought, or intention) intervention. For example, a zen Buddhist monk blessed a certain crystal and it changed into a beautiful looking snowflake pattern. Similar beautiful patterns existed w/the mental stimuli of “love”, “gratitude”, and other positive vibes. The reverse happened with Read the rest of this entry »
