This IS an interesting film to watch, but it is NOT a documentary. If you want to hear an alternative point of view you can watch it, but it is NOT science.
"As a biologist, I firmly believe that when you're dead, you're dead. Except for what you live behind in history. That's the only afterlife" - J. Craig Venter
Yes it is available on the net. Actually it is not for sale i think. You can only get it off the net.
Hmmm, I hate to be the only dissenting voice here but a lot of that movie is a load of junk put together by a cult-type group called the Ramtha school of enlightenment. They basically believe that their leader, J.Z. Knight, is channeling the several-thousand year old spirit of a warrior from Atlantis. I wouldn't believe much or anything this group has to say. Just my opinion, though.
This movie is a load of feel-good nonsense with an extra helping of computer animation to help it go down.
I can't believe BioLad was the only dissenting voice on this site!
Ice crystals are prettier when they're near happy thoughts and words???
We create reality by our thoughts alone?
People can't see things they don't already have ways to describe?
Even the Quantum Mechanical parts of the film, which seemed questionable,
don't fully explain how to use this "science"...how to test it and *verify* the movie's claims.
Anyway, more intellegent people than me have dismissed this movie:

including one of the main scientists involved with it!
Oh boy I am stupid... Thanks for the enlightenment...
The only thing I regret now is mentioning this film on my Princeton Application...
I hope you didn't 'namedrop' on your application as well...
I haven't seen the movie, and I guess after these reviews I won't.
I thought the title of the movie was a pretty good general purpose thought provoking question.
I was pondering the other day, what scientist do most people come in contact with? Their doctor.
Speaking generally, what do doctors know? A lot, an impressive amount of incredible stuff.
What do doctors not know? Whether we're better off alive or dead.
A trillion dollar scientific industry that touches all of us, based largely on a conclusion that arises as a matter of faith from profound ignorance.
