[ Crackling, Rumbling ]

[ Chattering, Faint ]

[ Man ] What's going on,

and why am I here?

[ Explosion ]

- Where do we come from?

- What do quantum physics--

- Immense quantum mechanical isotopes.

- Physics of possibility.

Quantum mechanics allows--

[ Woman ]

Supreme mind.

- Brain is capable of millions--

- A neural net.

- Cascade of biochemical--

- An emotional response--


The brain does not know

the difference between...

what it sees in its environment

and what it remembers.

We are running

the holodeck.

Whatever way we observe

the world around us--

[ Woman ] So how can you continue

to see the world as real...

if the self that is determining it

to be real is intangible?

[ Popping ]

[ Brakes Squealing ]

[ Woman ] Are all realities

existing simultaneously?

Is there a possibility...

that all potentials

exist side by side?

Have you ever seen yourself through the eyes

of someone else that you have become...

and looked at yourself through the eyes

of the ultimate observer?

[ Man ]

Who are we?

Where do we come from,

what should we do...

and where are we going?

Why are we here? Well,

that is the ultimate question, isn't it?

What is reality?

What I thought was unreal,

now for me...

seems in some ways to be more real

than what I think to be real...

which seems now more

to be unreal.

You can't explain it, um...

and anybody who gets

too lost in try--

anybody who spends too much time

trying to explain it...

is likely to get lost forever

down the rabbit hole of mysteriousness.

I think the more you look

at quantum physics...

the more mysterious

and wondrous it becomes.

Quantum physics...

very succinctly speaking...

is a physics of possibilities.

These are questions--

These are addressing questions, um,

of how the world feels to us...

of-of whether there's a difference

between the way the world feels to us...

and the way it really is.

Have you ever thought about

what thoughts are made of?

I think some of the things

we're seeing with the children today...

is a sign that the culture

is in the wrong paradigm...

and not appreciating

the power of thought.

Every age, every generation

has its built-in assumptions--

That the world is flat,

or that the world is round, et cetera.

There are hundreds

of hidden assumptions...

things we take for granted,

that may or may not be true.

Of course, in the vast majority of cases,

historically, these things aren't true.

So presumably,

if history is any guide...

much about what we take for granted

about the world simply isn't true.

But we're locked into these precepts

without even knowing it of ten times.

That's a paradigm.

Modern materialism...

strips people of the need

to feel responsible...

and often enough,

so does religion.

But I think if you take quantum mechanics

seriously enough...

it puts the responsibility

squarely in your lap.

And it doesn't give answers

that are clear-cut...

and comforting.

It says, yes, the world is

a very big place. It's very mysterious.

Mechanism is not the answer, but I'm not

gonna tell you what the answer is...

because you're old enough

to decide for yourself.

Is everyone a mystery?

Is everyone an enigma?

They most certainly are.

Asking yourself these deeper questions

opens up new ways of being in the world.

It brings in

a breath of fresh air.

It makes life more joyful.

The real trick to life

is not to be in the know...

but be in the mystery.
