The final part of Professor Jim Al-Khalili’s documentary series about the basic building block of our universe, the atom. He explores how studying the atom forced us to rethink the nature of reality itself, discovers how there might be parallel universes in which different versions of us exist and finds out that ’empty’ space isn’t empty at all. Al-Khalili shows how the world we think we know turns out to be a tiny sliver of an infinitely weirder universe than which we could have conceived. (Excerpt from main website)
” Four years after releasing my documentary – Reality and the Extended Mind – and 350 thousand views later, I recently reflected on the life-changing story of how it all came about.
I made Reality and the Extended Mind (featured below) back in 2010. It is a film about mysterious extended characteristics of consciousness that researchers call psi. I never expected my film to gain the attention it did. When I set out to make it I think I just wanted an excuse to meet and ask questions of the scientists exploring the nature of consciousness and its place in reality. I was fascinated by the implications of these controversial effects.
The opportunity came when I was contacted via my Youtube channel by a guy around my age in the US. He had worked alongside some of the leading scientists in the field of consciousness research. Adam had been a researcher at the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research Laboratory, known as the PEAR lab. These scientists were testing the apparent influence of participants’ intention on the statistical outputs of a quantum random system. This mysterious effect directly challenged the prevailing assumption in the mind sciences – that consciousness is an illusion confined to the brain. The PEAR experiments suggested that the origins of consciousness are rooted in a deeper order of nature. This was a conclusion that mainstream science was yet to accept.
Had it not been for Adam Curry’s generosity and friendship, the film would never have been made. He invited me stay with him and meet some of his colleagues and friends involved in psi research. Flying from London, I took two extended trips to the US over two years, where Adam and I embarked on several ambitious road trips. Through the course of conducting interviews at research labs and conferences I met many fascinating people. I found myself in the presence of pioneers in consciousness research. Thinking back to the first time I interviewed IONS researcher Dean Radin, or Global Consciousness Project director Roger Nelson, seems curiously like a dream. Our accommodations ranged from crashing on student’s couches in Boulder, Colorado, to the surreal extravagance of the Luxor in Las Vegas, where we’d stayed during a remote viewing conference. As well as sharing a fascination with consciousness and the nature of reality, Adam and I discovered that we had a lot in common, and quickly became fast friends. Our road trips between destinations took us through changing landscapes of mountains, pine forests and desert. These were my first experiences in the US and the distances seemed vast. Our conversations ranged from the potentials of biofeedback technology, to the father reaches of human consciousness. Late one night we pulled over, deep in the Nevada desert to look up at the Milky Way stretching across the night sky. I’d never seen stars like that before. These were magical, worldview-expanding times for me. The great mystery of the universe had never felt so imminent.
When I finally returned to England with the footage, the reality of actually making the film gradually began to set in. I was broke at the time and had no choice but to edit the footage on an ancient dusty laptop which, several years earlier, had survived a four-month backpacking trip around India. During editing, which I was essentially learning as I went along, I had to use the laptop speakers for sound because the aux was broken and irrepairable. Every minor edit to the timeline began an excruciating epoch of loading during which the computer was essentially frozen. I would wait as the fan buzzed furiously in the computer’s sand-filled interior. Sometimes it would relinquish control to me after 10 minutes or so, frequently it would simply crash. The CPU often got so hot I worried it was going to melt. For the duration of the editing process I balanced the laptop on sealed ice packs. I expected the old machine to give out at any time, loosing months of editing. Miraculously it didn’t. The result of my efforts is the modest film you see before you.
Reality and the Extended Mind is ultimately a collage of images, music and information I hoped would be an interesting introduction to psi research. A product of the re-mix culture I grew up with, it was an entirely non profit film produced for the purpose of journalism and public interest. ” – Adrian D.Nelson

The Cosmic Giggle is an experimental documentary film that explores the human energy field’s dynamic relationship with our environment. Naturally as human beings, we are connected to a vast network of fluid information inherent to the world around us. When we are children, we are open to this field through simple innocent observance, but because of our collective evolution towards a dominating and fixated worldview, this perception becomes veiled. This film reveals how this process takes place and provides keys for returning to a more primal and authentic experience of our reality.
“BEYOND” is an exclusive documentary featuring photographer Joey L. Set in Varanasi, India. The documentary by filmmaker Cale Glendening follows Joey and his assistant Ryan as they complete their latest photo series- “Holy Men.”
Almost every major religion breeds ascetics; wandering monks who have renounced all earthly possessions, dedicating their lives to the pursuit of spiritual liberation.Their reality is dictated only by the mind, not material objects. Even death is not a fearsome concept, but a passing from the world of illusion.

Guiding you under the powerful full moon’s rays, Lilian takes you into a realm of new ideas, perspectives and realities. Getting the power surge of the full moons energy, you can let go of all that doesn’t serve you this day onward.
Be inspired and in awe as you set the energetic imprint on the day/night of the full moon. Use this energy with deliberation and a knowing that you are fully being supported in your visions.
The ancient art of manifesting has been known to the Native American Indians for centuries. All over the world, several native groups have understood the power of a full moon as they continue to engage in this long-standing tradition past down from their ancestors. They understand how best to utilize the full moon’s energetic force and other worldly secrets naked to our rational minds. Studies have been conducted in several countries focusing upon such esoteric rituals like full moon rituals: Results have astounded many in the western scientific community who reported upon the way in which everything manifested/unfolded- a direct result of such a ritual (moon rituals).

The fundamental nature of reality is actually consciousness. In his documentary Peter Russell explores the reasons why consciousness may be the fundamental essence of the Universe. Many have made such claims from metaphysical perspectives, but the possibility has always been ignored by the scientific community. In this talk, he discusses the problems the materialist scientific world view has with consciousness and proposes an alternative world view which, rather than contradicting science, makes new sense of much of modern physics. He presents a reasoned argument that shows how they are pointing towards the one thing science has always avoided considering – the primary nature of consciousness.
This documentary basically seeks answers for these questions: What is consciousness? How could consciousness arise from matter? Paradigm shifts in science. The materialist meta paradigm. A new meta paradigm. Consciousness is in everything. Everything is in consciousness. Matter is a mental construct. Relativity and light’s point of view. Light lies beyond space, time and matter. Photons and the quantum of action. Parallels between light and consciousness. Consciousness as the fundamental reality. The mystical experience of consciousness. Who am I? What is the self? The meeting of science and spirit.
We have all heard about Universal Laws/ Laws of Nature/ Cosmic Laws/ whatever-you-want-to-call-them and the importance and impact they have in our lives, no matter if somebody is “spiritual” or not. What are these “laws”? How many are there? How do they work? Can we use them with good intention to achieve a higher state of Consciousness and Unity? The answer is YES!
A one-hour exploration of the 50 Primary Universal Laws.
The Universe is perfectly balanced by natural and moral laws. When you work with the laws, you can be assured of an eventual positive outcome. When the laws are transgressed, you can be assured of suffering, whose only purpose is to teach you a better way. The awareness of this MP3 is actually a complete metaphysical system. An awareness of these universal laws can be powerful self-help, or the basis of counseling your family, friends or clients.
Consciously Harmonizing With Universal Laws Only Requires 5 Simple and Profoundly Empowering Steps
All that’s required of you is simply a matter of “doing” 5 simple yet extremely powerful and creative steps and Universal Laws take over and provide the rest.
You don’t have to know how Universal Laws work or for that matter even be aware that they exist. They are ALWAYS working every second of every minute of every day whether you are “consciously aware” of it or not. But of course it is much better if you have the knowledge base and the wisdom to use them.
Ok…so what are those 5 steps?
1) Hold a “conscious intention” of the thing desired
2) Focus on it’s “realness” as an already existing fact
3) Think, speak and act as if you already have it
4) Take “inspired action” as the ways and means to make it a “tangible reality” show up.
5) Detach and Allow the perfection and simplicity of the process to provide the “desired outcome.”
Remember to use your Intuition and Discernment and realize what resonates with you as there is no standard formula “one-size-fits-all”.
