What the bleep do we know?!

What the Bleep do We Know?! movie presents an unusual format of half documentary, half film about the world of quantum physics and what the latest discoveries in this field reveal, with a slight spiritual slant. The documentary side of the movie is the most scientific with scientists interviews. While the storyline of the film focuses on a female photographer and how her mental attitude affects her daily life.

The documentary concludes that the apparently chaotic quantum field is actually influenced by our thoughts, positive or negative. Some may find this thought terrifying by itself. Others may find it comforting to know they have some level of control over the physical world. I guess it all depends on how much each one of us is in control of our thoughts.

Advertising's Purpose

We all take advertising as an acceptable part of our lives. Noam Chomsky's view regarding the purpose of advertising is way more sinister than most of us would suspect and yet very compelling. Read on.

"When you turn on the television set the corporation doesn't make any money. You don't pay them when you turn it on, unless it's cable! So the resources and the creativity and the effort on the whole television industry goes into advertising.

In fact, within the television industry there are words like "content" and "feel". The content is the advertising, the feel is the car chasing that keeps you watching until the next ad comes along.

But the advertising is there for a purpose. It's to turn people into creatures who's only concern in life is to max out their five credit cards and not to pay attention to what's going on on the world and let the rich powerful guys do what they want without any interfeerence."

Chris Martin is f*cking angry!

"CM: [...] But it is cool to learn about the Roman Empire. In the future they'll be unearthing statues of George Bush!

MJ: Do you consider yourself a political person or Coldplay a political band?

CM: No, I'd consider us a band interested in certain aspects of politics because it affects us just as much as it affects everybody else. I don't want the Third World to become the Fourth World any more than anybody else does. That's the one thing about when you actually visit a place where there is immense poverty: You see the reasons why, and it makes you fucking angry. Because it's just going to come back and haunt America and haunt England if they—if we—don't do something about it. This is tremendously clichéd stuff. But unfortunately it's all true."

"Truth... is worth a shot."

I thought I would share a couple of quotes that eloquently explain how and why it's easy to hide the truth from the masses. It makes total sense to me.

"The individual is handicapped by coming face to face with a conspiracy so monstrous he cannot believe it exists."
~ J. Edgar Hoover

"...the broad masses of a nation are always more easily corrupted in the deeper strata of their emotional nature than consciously or voluntarily; and thus in the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie..."
~ Adolf Hitler, 1925 Mein Kampf

"Truth," is not always accepted by the masses, yet as father said to me..."it's worth a shot!"

Weapons of Mass Destruction


"Whether long range weapon or suicide bomber
Wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction

Whether you're soar away sun or BBC 1
Misinformation is a weapon of mass destruc

You could a Caucasian or a poor Asian
Racism is a weapon of mass destruction

Whether inflation or globalization
Fear is a weapon of mass destruction

Whether Halliburton or Enron or anyone
Greed is a weapon of mass destruction

We need to find courage, overcome
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction
Inaction is a weapon of mass destruction


~ Lyrics by Faithless

Documentary - 911 Loose Change

Loose Change Final Cut trailer

Loose Change is a documentary about the attacks of 11th September 2001. The film claims that not only some members of the US government knew the attacks were going to happen but they actually made them happen. This is a well put together film which should be watched by anyone that believes in the official story of the events of 911.

Below are a few comments from the Loose Change film website.

"Loose Change 2nd Edition" is the follow-up to the most provocative 9-11 documentary on the market today.

This film shows direct connection between the attacks of September 11, 2001 and the United States government.

Evidence is derived from news footage, scientific fact, and most important, Americans who suffered through that tragic day.


Dr. Parenti and globalization

Dr. Michael Parenti is "A prolific author, a charismatic speaker, and a regular guest on radio and television talk shows, Parenti communicates his message in an accessible, provocative, and historically informed style that is unrivaled among fellow progressive activists and thinkers."

And humourous too - definetly a must see. That is if you are interested in issues like globalisation, terrorism and conspiracies. : )

Dr. Parenti's speech (2002)

The above speech is one hour long. You can watch the full thing on Google Video.

U.S. spyplane bearing U.N. colours. Uh?!

"George Bush considered provoking a war with Saddam Hussein's regime by flying a United States spy plane over Iraq bearing UN colours, enticing the Iraqis to take a shot at it, according to a leaked memo of a meeting between the US President and Tony Blair."

"Now that plainly looks as if it is deception, and it raises questions of legality, both in terms of domestic law and international law. - Mr Sands told Channel 4 News last night"

And these are the people that rule us. Who votes for these nuts?

Documentary: The Corporation

"Stories of child labour, privatized rainwater in Bolivia, chemical pollutants, links between synthetically produced milk and cancer in The States, compromised news broadcasters like Fox, and on and on and on, are the stuff of pure terror."

"...this is one movie with its finger firmly pushing the emergency alarm. For once you should believe the hype, you need to see this."
~ in BBC Collective
