400 years ago, Galileo upset the church by offering evidence that the Earth is not the center of the universe.
Galileo was not alone. History tells us that when revolutionary discoveries threaten the status quo, the knee jerk response is to ignore, criticize, and occasionally, burn a visionary at the stake. Amazing scientists like Ignaz Semmelweis, Gregor Mendel, James Lind, William Harvey, were ridiculed—or worse. Giodano Bruno was tortured and executed for asserting that the earth travels through space, and that stars were actually suns of other worlds. And of course, Galileo, who lived out his last 8 years under house arrest.
What if there were Galileos among us now who could forever change the world, but are likewise being ignored? In today’s world, science (or scientists and the journals and organizations that publish and fund them) can be as dogmatic as the church. And while radical scientists aren’t being trotted off to the gallows or imprisoned in London tower anymore, they are often sidelined, ridiculed, and unable to publish because their discoveries shake the foundation of what Science considers to be the Truth.
Who are our modern day Galileos? What have they discovered that could radically transform our perception of reality? What effect could their discoveries have on everyday life? Join us as we meet the modern-day Galileos and explore breakthroughs in physics, medicine, artificial intelligence, and even what it means to be human.
What is consciousness, and can robots achieve it? What is energy medicine, and can it radically transform the way humans approach health and wellbeing? What the heck is quantum physics really telling us about our reality? Are we all connected? What if there are unknown human abilities and technologies that could profoundly change what we know to be true?
Our approach is science based; examining scientific materialism, its dogmas, and how these methods may have served us in the past, and whether it's time to evolve into a post-materialism world where science and spirit can commune together; to explore the interconnectedness between the seen and unseen; to expand humanity’s understanding of who we are, and most fundamentally, why we are here.
Similar to the series Connected on Netflix, our 5-part series (Season 1) will be hosted by a fun, intelligent host who has a background in our subjects, is genuinely curious and willing to explore all sides (even the skeptics), and to moderate a lively and robust conversation that our audience will engage with, enjoy, and learn from.
Created by award-winning filmmakers Betsy Chasse (What The Bleep Do We Know), and Katheryne (Ktee) Thomas (The End of Quantum Reality). If anyone can make Quantum Physics and the study of consciousness interesting, it’s these two women, credited with making two of the most successful, entertaining, and accessible films on these subjects.
Interviews to date: Federico Faggin, Marjorie Woollacott, Dean Radin, Thomas Campbell, Deborah Rozman, Rollin McCraty, Roger Nelson, Dr. Bernie Seigal, Lynn McTaggart, Richard Gordon and more.
