Excerpt from Thesis :

I've never "seen" a million dollars, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

A couple of the other physics concepts can be difficult to comprehend, as well. For example, one concept is that things can exist in more than one space at a time, but people do not choose to see them, and so, when they look at them they disappear. This section of the film might turn away a lot of viewers, because much of the discussion may be over their heads and the might find it boring. These ideas are some of the most "out there" of the film, and the hardest for the mathematicians to really get across. The talk of what is real and what a person sees vs. what they remember was understandable, but many of the other concepts may just be too odd for people to wrap their heads around. For example, the atom discussion on how nothing is solid, even though it appears solid, could be hard for people to take, too. Wise people say that it is true, but for most people, if you hit a cement block with your hand, your experience is that it's solid enough to break your hand, and they will believe that experience more than the mathematicians. These are concepts that bear study and discussion, but for many people, they need "concrete" evidence (pun intended), and this film is more about the esoteric than the concrete

Honestly, I did not have a picture of understanding this film before I watched it. I heard about it, wanted to see it, and watched it. After the activity, I think I have a clearer opinion about some aspects of the film, and in other ways it muddied the waters for me. The mathematicians were the hardest part for me to comprehend, and somehow the storyline got complicated for me, but I do think that watching it gave me a more open mind, and I don't think I will ever look at "reality" in quite the same way. Watching this film really does change your reality, and how you view the...

...

It is truly a unique and visionary film, and although I would not watch it often, I will probably watch it again, just not for a while.

Is this film worthwhile? Yes, it is, if only for the fact that it sets your mind in motion and gets people talking. I heard about the film from someone who had seen it, and it certainly got my family talking. My kids asked a lot of questions about it after it was over, and it got us all thinking about what we do every day, and how the reality of that could be different from what we experience. My kids were kind of fascinated by some of the concepts, and I think it was good for them to watch it and learn how to question the world around them and look at alternative viewpoints.

It would be hard to say that I "enjoyed" this movie. Parts of it were almost indecipherable to me, and parts were just plain too out there for me to accept. That must be the skeptic in me, and I think there is some of that in many of us, who would question certain aspects of this film. I would not say that I totally disliked the film, because it was entertaining at times, and most of all, it makes the viewer stop and think, and not a lot of films do that, these days. It truly is a unique and valuable film, and I would probably recommend it to others, with a warning about those mathematicians and their ideas. The rest of the film is engaging if not unusual, and the way they combine acting, documentary, and animation is one of the most unique things I've ever seen done in a film. I like Marlee Maitlin too, and I think she gives a good performance in a role that has clearly never been done before. This is an historic film in any number of ways, and for many people, it might even be a life-changing event in understanding their own reality.

In this interpretation Heitler accepts the modified Copenahgenist observer created reality, but adds that the act of observation dissolves the barrier between observer and the observed.

Arntz addresses this bridge between the observer, the observer, and reality by asking "why aren't we magicians?"; indeed, if we create

A lot of this discussion was over my head and I found it boring, but I also was skeptical about some of the ideas, because they were so "out there."
