I get questions!

People ask me since my appearance in the film “What the Bleep” about the almost magical world of quantum physics. When I lecture and talk to people “what kind of feedback and responses do I now get?” I’ve never been in this kind of situation before. People are cheering, standing, applauding, you know, it’s really hot for me. All I can say is I’m having a lot of fun. People seem to be responding to the phenomenon, to the information coming through so they go out in a livelier state than they were when they first come in to the lecture. So that’s basically what I seem to be getting. This quantum physics stuff, or the insights that I’ve gained about the universe and the spiritual nature of the universe and how quantum physics works seems to have a beneficial effect on people.
This response has given me some insights into our own nature. Ever since humans began to wonder and gaze at the heavens, they have taken it as matter of fact that if it is above me, it must be beyond me and therefore godlike. So we tend to see images in the stars and think of heaven as being up there. Hence our forebears took it upon themselves to build great monuments and statues depicting the gods and usually they built these monuments much larger than life size to depict the godlike structure they figures impose on human kind. Motion pictures have taken over statue building but the need to worship gods remains intact in the human spirit. Hence our gaze now turns to movie stars rather than constellations. Thus put my mug on a screen 30 feet by 30 feet or even larger and I become a godlike figure to the unconscious mind witnessing the image.
Or maybe I am just getting older and people think I know more than they do. Oh well . . .

Hello Fred!

I enjoyed your dialogue very much in the film and just read this post on the nature of celebrity hood and couldn't agree more! Very funny and insightful.

All of this quantum physics stuff has my husband and I discussing the possiblities and already....changes are happening.

Thank you for the wonderful energy you are putting out there.

Cheers!

When an artist, a person truly creates, they do so in absolute and passionate sincerity. An artist reaches into themselves into a place of such depth that all that they are, hopes, dreams, physical sensations, etc. exist in such an absolute and pure form that the only name, the only identification for reality at this depth that the person is able to percieve, to give, is "me." In drawing from this place, a message is sought to be brought forth by the creator, regardless of their initial intent or otherwise. It is a tremendous release from within a place that is beyond primal, sentient, etc. a place of purest, (seemingly) infinite essence. This release is the person's purest expression of themselves.
In short, Creativity is the deepestmost sincere communication of ourselves; creativity is the ultimate affirmation that we exist.

Pure/true sincerity is an ultimate form of substance and intention (or substance of intention)

Communication is the affirmation of ourselves as individuals, affirmation that other people exist, and that we all exist collectively without conflict.

How many times and how many ways I've tried to write this post I don't know, but I finally realized simply plunging in from the beginning may be what makes the most sense. This is also my first blog post, so please bear with me.
I wrote these thoughts/ideas as they finally crystalized some months ago and have plagued me as have many other thoughts as "just on the edge of my mind" for my 20 years of this life. It is with great irony to me that it is just now that I have finished for the first time "What the Bleep do we know." The movie has not changed my life as it has granted me a breath of relief and sanity in knowing regardless of a lack of a degree in philosophy, theology, physics, etc. from the age of two ideas which were later conditioned to me as "dangerous distabilizing nonesense."

Your blog noted that you have recieved many questions to which I personally experience to be a delight, yet I find that I truly only have one: After having the ideas and many like the ones written above, where do I go now?

Haggard, but sincerest grattitude,
-Tony "Othergear" Lee

Dear Captain Quantum, I was overjoyed to find out today about your blog. I add it to my weekly reading list.

In terms of the propensity of people to "project outwards" inner realities that are still "unconscious", that is already known by many. When people project what they don't know is inside them, they project both greatness and darkness on others.

As to you being heralded as a famous star now, I think that your work has undoubtedly been a light in our collective darkness when faced with the implications of what the meaning is of life in such a great universe that we don't understand. You have made us more conscious of what we still don't know.
When people project onto you the light of knowledge and treat you like a deity or a celebrity, I would say it is well-deserved regardless of the projection mechanism happening.

In fact, to me you personify the higher evolved archetype of a captain (in your case acombination of the archetype of wise man and at the same time magician who sees deeper truths) and I see that you are steering us with your knowledge and questions into unexplored (inner) realities that are universal.

In a time when there are so little figures that can act as mentors or ritual elders to initiate us into our own inner captains, we can look for your guidance when we are clueless about the deeper mysteries that continue to surround us.

Mr. Fred Alan Wolf;

I recently saw "What the Bleep do we Know?", and I was very impressed with the ideas presented. I did some internet research on you and the other scientists who added commentary to the show and I became even more interested. However, the movie asks more questions than it answers.

Dr. Satinover mentioned that Quantnum Mechanics allows for choice in the Universe. If, fundamentally, we are all one field of consciousness, how can an individual make a choice independent of that field? Who is ultimately responsible for the Universe we see, is it us, or God?

Also, during the movie various statements were made by priests, and other scientists. For instance, the priest said that whether we do this or that, there is no God waiting to punish us. Personally, I think we suffer for making the "wrong" choices, and since God is the Universe, then that is God's "punishment".

This brings up the question of moral relativity, and the difference between right and wrong. If God is the Universe, this field of existence which we percieve, how can anything be "wrong"? If, on the other hand, we are completely free to make the Universe in our image, how can anything be "wrong"?

I recently saw the movie What the Bleep and was highly disappointed. Mixing science and new age blabber actually discredits the validity of the science. I did guess that you had a scientific background and was not just talking in circle like many of the other 'sudo-wantabe-scientific' individuals in the movie. I have some background in studying Quantum Physics and I believe there is a lot of interesting research to be done in this field. I only fear that the science is become tainted by individuals who lack credibility.

I was hoping you would comment on this in some way.

Dr. Wolf.
With gracious gratitude, I wish to thank you. You have inspired me with only five words....."You are God in disguise".
I was listening to the teachers on "The Secret" web site. You were the last one, but the most inspiring for me.Those five words sent an "understaning" throughout my entire body. It is so wondrful.....to know. I started to giggled and wanted to get up and dance. All my years of "searching" was summed up in those inspiring words! I wish for you.....all that you desire. "The Sprit" really has come over me. I have heard people speak of that.......It is "Oh, so simple". We in human form have made it.... "Oh,so hard"!
Again, with heartfelt gratitude...Love and Blessings!

Fred Alan Wolf,

I have watched What the Bleep Do We Know and I am shocked on how you could possibly manage to turn the interpretations of quantum mechanics into a circus.

It does not take a genius to see that there is absolutely nothing magical about quantum mechanics, when thought clearly quantum mechanics is even more intuitive than classical mechanics.

What I rally think is that if you acted on this movie and really believe the experiment done on the water molecules (which you should definitely know that all water molecules are identical H-O-H's and there is nothing colorful or spiritual about them) you should be stripped off your Ph.D. and teaching licenses.

Maybe the layman may not know but how could anyone talk about himself as a "Quantum Physicist", there is no such thing. Everybody who is working on physics uses quantum mechanics whether s/he is working on optics, high energy, solid state or condensed matter etc.

If you are aware of what you are talking about is wrong then there is a sinister reason behind it that you continue with this attitude, or else if you really believe what you are talking about then I pity you.
