5.0 out of 5 stars Thought Provoking
I rarely write reviews, but in light of the damning 1 star contribution by "Savita" I have to add comment.

For me, the film was interesting and thought provoking. Yes Amit Goswami's perspective combines spiritual ideas with his wealth of knowledge of quantum physics; since his background does include Hinduism and Indian cultural beliefs then it is no surprise...

1.0 out of 5 stars Hindu Activist would be a better title
I was hoping for some new insights in the fields of Quantum Physics and Philosophy of Mind but all this is is the same old Hinduism portraying itself as scientific, even more so than was the case in 'What the Bleep?'. There is nothing much new here either unless you have never seen 'What the Beleep?' and never been exposed to eastern thinking before in which case you...

I rarely write reviews, but in light of the damning 1 star contribution by "Savita" I have to add comment.

For me, the film was interesting and thought provoking. Yes Amit Goswami's perspective combines spiritual ideas with his wealth of knowledge of quantum physics; since his background does include Hinduism and Indian cultural beliefs then it is no surprise the ideas merge... but i don't see why this would be an issue to anybody with an inquiring and open mind. It is refreshing to have such an intelligent individual who is (undoubtedly more intelligent than most) bringing such ideas to the masses and trying to combine the pure physics of the spiritual doubters with the ideas of those people who know and feel that there is something bigger than us as individuals.

If you want a film that will leave you thinking, a film that will help you get back in to the space of your own journey, and if you are open to ideas that may not be your own then this film will do it for you. If you have preconceived ideas that you wish someone else to affirm, or if you want a DVD about pure physics then move on to the next thing. For some people this film wont be the answer they were looking for, but at least it will make you think and that's always going to be a good thing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Award winning masterpiece..a must see for open minded people, 5 Mar 2012
This review is from: Quantum Activist: There Is a Revolution Going on [DVD] [2009] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
One the most inspiring documentaries Ive ever seen. The production values are as good as it gets.
Goswani gives a credible scientific argument for the existence of a higher conscious.
The paradoxes he talks about in science are addressed by putting the theory forward that consciousness itself is the driver of reality.
And after hes finished you'll find it hard to argue with.
It makes perfect sense, as he irons out the paradoxes of the orthodox view.

Its a life changing piece of work.
Forget the 1 star reviews (clearly done by the same person) who has some hang up with Hindu ideas (Hinduism isnt the main theme of this documentary anyway, the "Hinduism masquerading as science" statement is nonsense.

When someone thinks outside of the box, like Goswani does, there's always someone negative to bite at the heels...shame...funny how they cant answer the points he makes in the DVD.

I was hoping for some new insights in the fields of Quantum Physics and Philosophy of Mind but all this is is the same old Hinduism portraying itself as scientific, even more so than was the case in 'What the Bleep?'. There is nothing much new here either unless you have never seen 'What the Beleep?' and never been exposed to eastern thinking before in which case you might find it inspiring. If you want science look elsewhere as this is less than 5% science and more than 95% hindu ideology. I'm not saying that makes it intrinsically wrong. Everyone has a right to their beliefs but portraying those beliefs as if they were established scientific facts is not really playing fair is it?

If you are familiar with the tachings of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi you'll find most of those ideas echoed here almost as if they've been lifted wholesale. But then you'd expect that since they are both drawing on the same source - hinduism. The ESP research must be considered suspect since almost all serious researchers in cognitive science and philosophy of mind agree that no results in this area have ever been forthcoming.

If you have a serious interest in philosophy of mind and consciousness I'd recommend any book by Anotonio Damasio and especially Descarte's Error as a starter. Chalmers' Philosophy of Mind collection is also very good and top of the tree in the technical books on consciousness for me so far has been Peter Carruthers' 'Consciousness - essays from a higher order perspective'. I have tremendous respect for eastern traditions and especially those of ancient India and I'm sure they have a great contribution to make but I don't think that this masquerading as science is the right way to put them over.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hinduism revisited, 4 Jan 2012

This review is from: Quantum Activist: There Is a Revolution Going on [DVD] [2009] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
I've instantly felt how the miracle of real change still remains hidden, even for a Hindu scientist. Unfortunately, this dvd turns around the same old beliefs... only to get the same outcome, the one that as a fact portraits human culture today.

In my opinion and for this context, I prefer a mind training course rather than a documentary. If you still want to "watch about reality", there is plenty of Art that figures in one shot more than a thousand words.

Congratulations for the realisation and for trying.
Not recommended.
