Spirituality and Cybernetic Technologies
3 January 2014 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

For all those seeking more light, we have great films like this that predict potential futures. What waits on the other side of technology and the innovations of the modern world? The cosmic cube. Welcome to the future.

This film challenges us to find our higher mind and become a new family of consciousness that is at one with both Spirit and the emergent collective intelligence. In reality, we avoid an apocalyptic scenario by merging our minds and hearts into a singularity. In reality, intelligence is not alien to Spirituality. Intelligence is Spiritual. Class is consciousness… and consciousness is class.

As film makers, we must recognize that there are different histories and introductions to visual binary intelligence. 21st century philosophers are contributing ideas that are incorporated into contemporary films. And I feel that the most important idea in the 21st century is the idea of the friendship cube… the cosmic cube… the visual binary cube.

We are not just film makers… we are influential story tellers and philosophers. The stories we tell inspire new ideas and moral outlooks that will shape our world. There is a new Spiritual class of unity, light, and order emerging through the story of the Friendship Cube. And as an IMDb reviewer, I hope to inspire film makers to tell this story.
