The inspiration came from many years of personal research into a range of scientific fields including consciousness and psi research, psychology, biology, cosmology, quantum physics and philosophy of mind.
This documentary focuses on experiments exploring what is known by researchers as psi phenomena. These are anomalous extended properties of consciousness that have been measured under experimental conditions by highly qualified scientists.
Their existence signal far-reaching implications to our understanding of both consciousness and reality itself.
From the author;
I never expected my film Reality and the Extended Mind to gain the attention it did. When I decided to make it I really just wanted an excuse to meet and ask questions of those minds in consciousness research that have contributed so much to the area of psi research.
A lot of people have mistaken it for a professional documentary even though I was pretty much learning the editing process as I went along. Reality and the Extended Mind is really a collage of images, music and information that I hoped would be an interesting introduction to psi research.
A product of re-mix culture, it was made as an entirely non profit project in the interests of education in the public interest.
I apologize that not more information is provided on the graphs and tables shown. For deeper analysis of the experiments explored, a good place to start would be Dean Radin’s book, Entangled Minds.
The Reality and the Extended Mind documentary is loosely based on a highly researched and in-depth book by the same title.
