If we are going to lead a life that is self-determined and strives for freedom we need to be able to distinguish between what is real and when we are being manipulated by others or by ourselves.

Over 2400 years ago the Greek Philosopher Plato wrote the "Allegory Of The Cave" , which, is a story about prisoners chained inside a cave from birth, and how their perception of reality has been created for them by unseen puppet masters who use fires located behind the prisoners to cast shadows on the wall in front of them.
Today much of what we perceive to be real is little more than fabricated stories and images created by modern day puppet masters to influence our perception of reality. (Puppet masters include government propagandists, cable news, bloggers, radio hosts, editorial writers and social media content developers, etc. )
The song, "Shadows On The Wall" is a reminder for us to be aware that things are not always as they seem, and that we are all ultimately responsible for seeking reliable sources of truth and knowledge to help us make informed decisions.
I tore myself away from the safe comfort of certainties through my love for truth - and truth rewarded me! (Simone de Beauvior)
What if the very fabric of space and time isn't made of one-dimensional strings or energy as we think of it, but instead was simply a code or a language made from a geometric projection? Quantum Gravity Research is a Los Angeles based team of mathematicians and physicists working on developing a theoretical framework for a first-principles unified quantum gravity theory they call emergence theory. Still in the early stage of development, emergence theory attempts to unify, through mathematical and scientific rigor, the theory of relativity, quantum mechanics, and consciousness. This film is presented in layperson terms and explains basics tenets of emergence theory, quantum mechanics and digital physics in ways that are meant to be communicative and fun. However, if you'd like to read any of the scientific and more technical papers, please visit our website. PLEASE NOTE: Please note this fundraising project is now closed so you cannot make any donations at this time. We appreciate all of the generous support we have received.
Is there an 8-dimensional "engine" behind our universe? Join Marion Kerr on a fun, visually exciting journey as she explores a mysterious, highly complex structure known simply as 'E8'--a weird, 8-dimensional mathematical object that for some, strange reason, appears to encode all of the particles and forces of our 3-dimensional universe. Meet surfer and renowned theoretical physicist Garrett Lisi as he rides the waves and paraglides over the beautiful Hawaiian island of Maui and talks about his groundbreaking discovery about E8 relates deeply to our reality; and learn why Los Angeles based Klee Irwin and his group of research scientists believe that the universe is essentially a 3-dimensional "shadow" of this enigmatic... thing... that may exist behind the curtain of our reality.
