I had free tickets to this as clergy, as they felt we must drive the needed changes in consciousness to save ourselves. This is an excellent hour long story of development from the big bang to present day, highlighting the shift in thinking required of us to go forward. It is not enough for scientists to say something needs to be done. We are connected to every species going extinct, and must realize this. This film goes a long way toward unifying our opportunity and predicament. It stops short, unfortunately, from examining what they are terming “matter/energy,” which can actually be understood as consciousness itself.
Following the film, the two producers – a married couple of professors from Yale – responded to questions about the film. They are hopeful on the basis of their extraordinary students at Yale. There was also a reception following where my husband and I enjoyed chatting with consciousness raisers of all stripes.
I recommend this film to everyone who is ready to become part of the solution to widening our “bottleneck” moment. This film is available on DVD and there is a book as well.
