This is from a story about how the native Americans could not see Columbus’s clipper ships at see because they had never seen them before. The tribe shaman was one of the first to perceive these foreign things after days of observation. And was able to convey this information to other members of the tribe. And that because the tribe members trusted him, they too began to be able to see the ships as well. I have also read that the story is that they first saw them as giant fish at see, because that was the closest thing to their reality or (visual decoded memories) that had to relate to them.
“What the Bleep do We Know?!” Quantum Edition Extra Part 1 – English subtitles:
The unlikeliest cult hit of 2004 was What the (Bleep) Do We Know?, a lecture on mysticism and science mixed into a sort-of narrative. Marlee Matlin stars in the dramatic thread, about a sourpuss photographer who begins to question her perceptions. Interviews with quantum physics experts and New Age authors are cut into this story, offering a vaguely convincing (and certainly mind-provoking) theory about… well, actually, it sounds a lot like the Power of Positive Thinking, when you get down to it. Talking heads (not identified until film’s end) include JZ Knight, who appears in the movie channeling Ramtha, the ancient sage she claims communicates through her (other speakers are also associated with Knight’s organization). What she says actually makes pretty good common sense–Ramtha’s wiggier notions are not included–and would be easy to accept were it not being credited to a 35,000-year-old mystic from Atlantis.
Proving once and for all that life can be an amazing journey and a real trip this all-new Quantum Edition release of What The Bleep!? Down the Rabbit Hole utilizes cutting-edge DVD technology to create a unique version of the film with every viewing! The possibilities are endless…and so is the fun! Academy Award winner Marlee Matlin is Amanda, a photographer suddenly transported into a metaphysical world of quantum mechanics, odd science and mind-bending phenomena. Guided by the world’s top physicists, engineers, biologists and mystics, she tumbles down the rabbit hole and gets a first-hand look at the fascinating links between science and spirituality in our everyday lives.
