Mission successful. I headed into Chicago for the early show, in a calculated attempt to avoid any possible sell outs (which I found out later have actually occurred at some of the evening showings) (Side note: on the way there I saw a cemetery with the sign: “Drive safely. We can wait.”)
Other than a tendency to exit the tram stations going the wrong way (usually corrected by the sears tower after walking a bit – titanic landmark navigation doesn’t come naturally to suburban midwest natives) I arrived at the theater just in time to sit and wait through the previews.
I got, pretty much, what I expected. A tour-de-force of quantum spirituality, with the latest science and spiritual perspectives presented in a format for the short attention span generation.
Was the film right? Insightful? It is easily argued (for instance from the fact that I saw it at all) that I was already pre-disposed to agree with most of the information presented. What you think of the movie, from my report, depends a lot on what you think of me. I consider myself to superficially informed on most topics to offer any authority on them.
I wrote out a basic subject list, in part for myself, to try and figure out what the big picture was. It might be considered a spoiler; for a typical hollywood movie a list this long would be pretty much the whole show. In this case it is just the topic list for a pretty deep conversation, and it is the conversation itself that is interesting.
