What the Bleep Do We Know!? is a fun movie that is part story and part documentary. It features two of my favorite scientists, Candace Pert – the person that discovered the opioid receptor, and William Tiller – a Standford physicist that presented an obscure proof at a conference I once attended.
The movie is colorful and presents good information about addictive processes, especially how our body reacts to outside triggers. It demonstrates how habitual patterns of feeling sorry for ourselves or craving the rush of sexual energy can set us up to create situations in our lives to supply the chemicals our body produces, much like a drug addict getting a fix. No need to inject, we make our own chemicals.
This is powerful example of how habitual patterns create our reality in a subtle way. The underlying message is a common spiritual theme. To be free of conditioned responses we need to break free of the limiting beliefs or programs that our system continues to run in the background. Breaking free allows for true choice in our actions.
Along with the great discussion of physiology the movie does a nice job of talking about how quantum physics explains our reality. Yes, we are really not touching the ground when we stand on it. The things we think are solid are not really solid. We, and the things are mostly space. We can consciously create our reality (and we already unconsciously create it).
