Storyline

"WHAT THE #$*! DO WE KNOW?!" is a radical departure from convention. It demands a freedom of view and greatness of thought so far unknown, indeed, not even dreamed of since Copernicus. It's a documentary. It's a story. It's mind-blowing special effects. This film plunges you into a world where quantum uncertainty is demonstrated - where neurological processes, and perceptual shifts are engaged and lived by its protagonist - where everything is alive, and reality is changed by every thought.

We Know it's Not Good...
15 September 2004 | by tonittSee all my reviews

This film purports to discuss quantum physics seriously, but in a philosophical vein. In reality, it's a two-hour, thinly disguised commercial for the pseudoscientific ravings of J.Z. Knight (better known as the "channeler" of a Cro-Magnon man, "Ramtha") and her so-called "School of Enlightenment".

See the Skeptic's Dictionary (http://skepdic.com/channel.html) for more information about J.Z. Knight and Ramtha.

Do yourself a favor and skip this pathetic mis-infomercial. For a really entertaining and informative exploration of pseudoscience, with the added bonus of punctuation in the title, try Penn & Teller's - Bullsh*t! - The First Season on DVD.
