To me, the more interesting questions raised by the film concerns our interest in using scientific language to prove our consciousness and validate our physical and metaphysical experiences (think "intelligent design"!!). With intersubjectivity looming as the great epistemological frontier of the 21st Century, and the dawn of the Enlightenment a dim memory, what fabulous questions are in store for monkey minds!?!?!
We have lived an eon of "reason", what if we're headed for an eon of "faith"? What of the language of Buddhism? It is looked to as a wise Master here, since it's language covers breaches of empirical evidence with elegant dispassion. The Four Noble Truths are basically an ancient Rx, are they not?! This article covers some ground work of "quantum mysticism": http://www.wie.org/j27/what-the-bleep.asp Excerpt: "So maybe the widespread popularity of quantum mysticism, and its latest offspring, *What the Bleep*, is pointing not just to our cultural propensity to be enamored by the amazing insights and innovations of science but to our innate fear of scientific materialism, which seeks, by definition, to squelch soul or spirit wherever it finds it."
