    If it has received bad rep by the scientific community, then I pass trying to understand this video.

    Camjoe, I don't exactly know what you are calling bullshit. What is psuedo science another label we are gonna slap on people that you don't agree with? Along with pool of other bashing terms: cultist, naive, religious, addict of the masses? I'm sure that the movie has SOME of the directors own views thrown in there but he does a good job at keep some facts right. After all, it is HIS documentary. The first link you posted to attempt at discrediting the entire film is 10x more irrational than the move! The writer start by saying pretty much not only was it a bad film with some bad facts, but the facts were ridiculously funny. He supports his argument with pointless and redundant facts that even a 13 year old could figure out. He says that the movie attempts to fill the unknown with a supernatural-"But it’s just a consciousness-of-the-gaps explanation: we can’t explain it so it must be consciousness." Wtf is that crap? He made it sound as if there's a bunch of dumb ass scientists came up to that conclusion at a desperate attempt of seducing the public. OBVIOUSLY this film is not a dictionary definition of quantum theory. Anyone with a basic understanding of this would have realized that as soon as they said that sub atomic particles are like 'thoughts.' Does it mean they are a bunch of morons and discredit the whole damn thing? NO. In the film, they also mentioned that they aren't going to tell you what to believe and what not to believe. They presented the facts and theories of their own. They offered that to the viewer! Does that mean it's 'psuedoscience?' no! they aren't promising anything. It's all THEORY. psuedo means false, and you can't prove their claims as false.

    Okay, so it may not be "false" science, but it sure is hell isn't good science...

    For example.

    Sounds like bad science to me ..

    The big problem I have with the movie is the fact they do not present the whole theory in a very fair and balanced way. It's nothing more than a fantasy docudrama ... Just because quantam mechanics may seem like a mystical thing .. doesn't mean it is. The microscopic world does not exactly work the same way as the macroscopic world. Whatever..

    You're right, it's just a movie anyway .. Shouldn't care too much I guess.

    The documentry was clearly controversial and controversial > attention > Viewers > Money

    I don't like it when people mix sci-fi or baseless theories with science.

    Wow. You actually watched this movie in phil class? What school do you go to?

    You know, there is only one reputable physicist in this movie, and in an interview he said the makers of the film took all his quotes out of context to fit their views. This movie is a bunch of new-age mystic, pseudoscientific hogwash.
