“It captures the essential mystery, with flair” - Larry Dossey, Author
Sir Arthur Edington said: "Something unknown is doing we don't know what;" which sort of sums up everything we know about existence. My new friend Renee Scheltema has made an amazing film with that title. It has been called "one of the most artistic, comprehensive, beautiful, clear, fair and visionary documentaries on parapsychology and science."
While many talking heads type psuedo-spiritual films in the last few years have opened people up to new ways of knowing, this film cuts across all boundaries and makes a great leap into the mainstream. This is a film that you can take the most skeptical anti-spiritual nudge to and have them raise their eye brows (in a good way) about what they will find here. Renee takes her own jounrey into the scienctific exploration of what psi researcher Charles Tart calls the "Big Five:"-Telepathy, Clairvoyancy, Psychic Healing, Telekinesis and Remote Viewing. Also featured in the film are many other scientists that bridge the world of mind and spirit such as: Hal Puthoff on remote viewing, Dean Radin on claiviyance, Larry Dorsey on psychic Healing, Gary Schwartz, Edgar Mitchel, Roger Nelson of Princeton, Rupert Sheldrake and many other scienctists that are forging a new paradigm of noetic science ( the science of consciousness).
The film's synopsis is:
Is it possible that some people can read your mind, "Telepathy"? or look into the future, "Clairvoyancy"? Why is it that some people can cure themselves while in the last stages of a deadly cancer, "Healing"? . Does mind over matter really exist, and if so, how do we explain this "Telekinesis"?
In the US millions of people claim to ‘see’ distant objects or places "Remote Viewing". Are they fooling us, or do they really see something? Do we have quantum-brains? And where is the boundary between 'real' magical powers and fraud? Can these ‘miracles of the mind’ be explained?
These and more questions will be answered in the quirky feature documentary “Something Unknown is doing we don't know what ” 104’ min by Dutch filmmaker Renée Scheltema, who was inspired to explore the realms of psychic phenomena after a series of curious and unexplainable events happened around her all in a short period of time.
She travelled to the US to meet up with the top scientists, para-psychologists, psychologists, physicians, and doctors within the field of research, like Prof Charles Tart, Prof Gary Schwartz and Dr Dean Radin. Along the way she collects anecdotal stories from celebrities within the field, such as psychic detective Nancy Myer, author Arielle Ford, and astronaut Dr Edgar Mitchell.
Renée found that experiments of today reveal how science is verifying numerous kinds of connections : 'mind to mind'; 'mind to body' and 'mind to world', demonstrating that psychic abilities are part of our inherent nature.

One is as though nothing is a miracle.
The other is as if everything is.
I believe in the latter" - Albert Einstein
