Something Unknown is doing we don’t know what…
Is it poossible that some people can read your mind, "Telepathy"? or look into the future, "Clairvoyancy"? Why is it that some people can cure themselves while in the last stages of a deadly cancer, "Healing"? . Does mind over matter really exist, and if so, how do we explain this "Telekinesis"?
In the US millions of people claim to ‘see’ distant objects or places "Remote Viewing". Where is the boundary between 'real' magical powers and fraud? Can these ‘miracles of the mind’ be explained?
These and more questions will be answered in the quirky feature award winning, documentary “Something Unknown is doing we don't know what ” by Dutch filmmaker Renée Scheltema, who was inspired to explore the realms of psychic phenomena after a series of curious and unexplainable events happened around her all in a short period of time.
She travelled to the US to meet up with the top scientists, para-psychologists, psychologists, physicians, and doctors within the field of research, like Prof Charles Tart, Prof Gary Schwartz, Dr Larry Dossey and Dr Dean Radin. Along the way she collects anecdotal stories from celebrities within the field, such as psychic detective Nancy Myer, author Arielle Ford, astronaut Dr Edgar Mitchell and intuitive Catherine Yunt.
Renée found that experiments of today reveal how science is verifying numerous kinds of connections : 'mind to mind'; 'mind to body' and 'mind to world', demonstrating that psychic abilities are part of our inherent nature.
When weird things happen, most of us file them away as coincidence or as freaky-things-not-to-talk-about-or-people-might-think-you’re-crazy. Dutch filmmaker Renée Scheltema, however, was motivated by her own psychic experiences to find out whether science had an explanation for them, and how you tell whether they are real.
Trailing around with a camera after some of the top scientists, authors, psychics and healers in the world, she created a fascinating documentary that provides a comprehensive overview of the current state of understanding and ongoing scientific research into how consciousness can communicate across space and time and influence matter.
I’m not sure that the scientists are lot closer to an explanation of how or why this happens, but science has demonstrated pretty clearly that these phenomena are real. The consensus seems to be that all consciousness is interconnected through quantum non-locality or entanglement that may utilize zero point energy for transmission. In simpler terms, we are all connected through a global mind that may be under a central Guiding, Organizing, Designing influence - yes there does seem to be a spiritual component to it all.
Scheltema focuses on the “Big 5” psi phenomena – Telepathy, Clairvoyance (Remote Viewing), Precognition (predicting the future), Psycho-kinesis (Mind over matter), and Psychic Healing. There is such a wealth of material here, that I am impressed with how seamlessly she shifts among the interviewees to advance the exposition of some pretty complex ideas. The film does the general conscious awakening a great service with its matter-of-fact approach, and only the most closed-minded skeptic could fail to be impressed with the evidence presented. Bravo, Renée!
