As the movie did, this book compels listeners to ask themselves Great Questions that will recreate their lives as they know them.

With the help of 14 leading quantum physicists, scientists, and spiritual thinkers, this book guides readers on a course from the scientific to the spiritual, and from the universal to the deeply personal. Along the way, it asks such questions as: Are we seeing the world as it really is?What are thoughts made of? What is the relationship between our thoughts and our world? Are we biologically addicted to certain emotions? How can I create my day every day?

    "Interesting at first, then hippy silliness"

    Okay, this starts out very interesting but then turns into a bit of a hippie diatribe. It also blames a lot of victims for their situation. It comes down to using modern quantum theory to justify the position of some mystics. I'm not saying I disagree, but that's what the book's about.

    "Disappointed, Not What I Expected"

    Admittedly, I couldn't finish this book. I had a number of problems with it, content-driven and otherwise:

    1. An audiobook adaptation for this film/book is awkward. Much of the text is quotes from various luminaries; much of the rest of it comprises the perspectives of the various authors. The "author" of the quote or perspective is listed at the bottom of the text; however, when that is read to you, you are left wondering when this particular person's quote began and how it relates to the other perspectives in the book. It comes through disjointed as you are unable to assign particular feelings to particular people.

    2. I mistook the description of the book. This was a disappointment, but was mostly my fault. To clarify: this is about the spirituality of consciousness, topics unexplained by modern science, and the wonder that quantum physics may begin to hint at. It is not well defined by its title. It is not about epistemology. More accurately: it is about what we don't know, but rather what nifty assumptions we can make based of quantum mechanics.

    3. I am a skeptic. This is not a book for skeptics. It may be interesting for people trying to meld science and spirituality. In this respect it wasn't for me. The problem here is that it goes from describing actual quantum theory to quantum spirituality without really describing the point when it went "wheels up." People unfamiliar with quantum mechanics might not recognize when the authors depart accepted theory.

    And now, if you will indulge me, here is where I'll get a little petty:

    4. Every sentence, mundane or wondrous, seems to end with an unspoken, "or did I just blow your mind?" It is very annoying. Not every thought they have is profound, but I'll be damned if they aren't trying to make it sound that way. They often pose questions that are sometimes insightful and sometimes silly, but always ending with a tone of admiration for their own profundity. I'd ask them this: "When I roll my eyes at you, do my eyes actually move or do they stand still while the rest of the universe turns upside down?"

    5. The authors begin the introduction by claiming that they were surprised by the critiques they received from the skeptical scientific community. This is disingenuous in the extreme. It becomes apparent in the first chapter that they are basically decrying science for its failure to explain everything. They present a weak, loaded and invalid argument to portray science as a religion, claiming it is an orthodoxy just like any other. Modern scientists are no different from ancient animists. There is no respect for the scientific method being a process of hypothesis, experimentation, empirical data collection, and replication. Scientists are just priests of the orthodoxy that they have inherited .

    No kidding, they were critical? You don't say.

    "Groundbreaking"
    What disappointed you about What the Bleep Do We Know?

    This work, written in part by a 35000 year old Lemurian, is groundbreaking in the sense that it brings a heretofore uncharted dimension to the concepts 'speculate','conjecture' and 'jump to conclusion'.

    "Riveting and fascinating"
    What did you love best about What the Bleep Do We Know?

    I love hearing this, over and over again.
    I have viewed the films, What The Bleep, and
    Down the Rabbit Hole.

    I love to listen to this, so I can deepen my understanding
    of this vast subject; Quantum Physics -- made as understandable
    as possible. Many brilliant minds contribute to
    this wonderful work of art.
