For the majority of people, What the Bleep Do We Know? can be a profoundly informative film, although admittedly a smaller percentage can find it frustratingly confusing.

If you haven’t seen the film I would highly recommend it. The title above links to their site. They worked hard and deserve to be paid for that work so if you do decide to watch the entire film I hope you do so in a way that benefits the film’s creators.

Scott McPherson is an Edmonton-based writer, public speaker, and mindfulness facilitator who works with individuals, companies and nonprofit organizations around the world.
A serious childhood brain injury lead Scott to spend his entire life meditating on the concepts of thought, consciousness, reality and identity. It made others as strange to him as he was to them. When he realized people were confused by their own over-thinking, Scott began teaching others to understand reality. He is currently CBC Radio Active’s Wellness Columnist, as well as a writer, speaker and mindfulness instructor based in Edmonton, AB where he still finds it strange to write about himself in the third person.
