Movie Review: What the Bleep!? Down the Rabbit Hole

Recently I had the privilege of watching an early review DVD copy of the sequel to: What the Bleep Do We Know!?, the new movie called: What the Bleep!? Down the Rabbit Hole. I also had a phone conversation with Will Arntz, the primary filmmaker behind both Bleep films. The new “Bleep II” is currently being shown in theatres around the US and Canada. Later on this year, there will also be a new DVD box set featuring many additional hours of Bleep material.
What the Bleep!? Down the Rabbit Hole is around two and a half hours long and represents a new version, with some of the same sights and sounds from the first Bleep movie but with additional material added, some new computer-generated special effects, also some scientists and thinkers not included in the first Bleep movie. I think it is a more finely-tuned, well-honed presentation. Since so many people enjoyed watching the first movie over and over again, I think most will find the second Bleep worth viewing. I enjoyed it more than the first. It contains around an hour and a half of new interviews, and there is some new animated footage, including: “the Double Slit Experiment”, and, “Dr. Quantum Visits Flatland”, a moving story of what it would be like for a two-dimensional being living in a flat universe to encounter someone from the third dimension. This has implications for us beings who believe we dwell in a three-dimensional universe seeking to understand and perhaps even interact with other dimensions. In this segment, Dr. Quantum brings (liberates) a two-dimensional being into the three-dimensional universe. This reminds me of the Near-Death Experience and the experiences of those who have reported mystically traveling to other realms, entering into new worlds.
The unique speciality of both What the Bleep films is illustrating so very well upon the screen some amazing, mind-blowing, abstract concepts of quantum physics and metaphysics, making them tangible, understandable, and even FUN.
We are all in this movie called life, existing in a holographic universe/multiverse. Each one of us is “The Observer” beholding our reality and effecting it. Hopefully those who view this movie will come away with a greater desire to be the conscious observer and co-creator with improved skills of observation, seeking to behold the highest good, focusing on that, creating their day in the highest possible way. The universe is always bigger and more astonishing that we realize.
