Storyline

Plot Summary

"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.

Did You Know?

Trivia One of the credited experts is Ramtha. Ramtha is an alleged entity who is channelled by J.Z. Knight who appears in the film and whose organisation helped fund this film. Ramtha is said to be over 35,000 years old and originated in the sunken continents of Atlantis and Lemuria, where he was in charge of an army of over a million people. See more »
Goofs Depiction of quantum mechanics in the movie bears no resemblance to the real theory of that name. In particular, the common misconception that the "observer effect" is dependent upon a sapient, human observer is incorrect. If any object interacts with any other, and either requires information regarding the current state and properties of the other, then that constitutes an observation. See more »

Crazy Credits The Scientists, Mystics and Scholars interviews herein were chosen based on the expertise in the subjects which they discussed. They do not necessarily agree with all viewpoints put forth in the film. Likewise the Filmmakers may not agree with all the viewpoints put forth by the Interviewees. Agreement is not necessary - thinking for one's self is. See more »
Quotes Ramtha: Have you ever stopped for a moment and looked at yourself through the eyes of the ultimate observer?
