  • uh... this script which have been around for about ten years comes along with

  • space concert at the tech and probably wasn't what you see today it wasn't the

  • story that you see where the easy she and all that stuff

  • and i met on it they've got this crazy idea

  • uh... with a friend of mine eugene liebowitz and we we rewrote it then

  • are crazy cuz he done four five film before any hadn't quite busted out and

  • it became what it was in june

  • skyrocketing when eight center broke out it was a totally organic or was there

  • some like marketing saying cetera that wanda or just people saw their liked and

  • that's funny and that's it

  • it's just may make you laugh in fact what we were doing at the studio type it

  • people respond solicit about the turned to tell you about what happened with

  • uh... accident

  • and what they're like

  • but i got a bike accent for those who don't know

  • i nearly died had a concussion turned impose concussion syndrome a brutal

  • condition some people commit suicide on at least rubble is it's really very very

  • it challenging

  • and i don't think i was gonna make it

  • and so i simply said this in the last act

  • if this is it the last chapter what i wanted to say i'm a filmmaker do i want

  • to say anything

  • then i decided to make a movie about what i had discovered and to talk to

  • people

  • uh... to see if the principles i had discovered meant anything at all so i

  • talked to some of the leaders uh... you know in different disciplines and said

  • you know let's have a conversation about what's really going on in the world

  • uh... what i've participated in some of the ills and how do we get out of this

  • mess that worked through

  • what happens that that

  • people give city because it dark place in the thing like

  • suicides only way out

  • were what do you spirit we go through

  • well you know it's it's different for different people but it's basically like

  • a computer that no longer functions your brain essentially being a computer takes

  • in stimuli knows what to do with it

  • in northern israel to do with it so these later be very painful any sound

  • would

  • would be like a kind of torture like above the high-pitched sound that

  • for you is just a click in plate for me it was the was deaf

  • so it is a very isolating disease you find people have to check into hotel

  • rooms have to leave their families their socialize behind

  • they have to basically shut the computer down

  • and nothing

  • helps but time

  • and it's the brain is very slow in healing in most cases

  • he can't appeal but it takes a lot of time so you just feel alone

  • and you don't have human interaction i didn't i didn't use a cell phone for

  • three years which actually trial plus

  • but it's a very isolating debilitating disease

  • because it's painful some people have severe headaches i just felt like

  • emergency broadcast system was in my head twenty four hours a day but put

  • that in your head

  • for a minute they would be painful if i said now it's never going to go away you

  • would be you can't become despondent

  • the main question i i want to ask you this

  • what did you discover you asshole is incredibly smart people yeah about life

  • what's essence of life what did you find well you know we have these the reason i

  • believe in these theories in my heart in that intuitive place there were all

  • brothers and sisters that everything's connected all those things

  • but what i didn't know was there was the time of

  • excuse me scientific evidence to back that up

  • from the field of quantum physics to uh... cellular biology

  • uh... to what they're discovering a positive psychology their is a time of

  • scientific evidence to prove that what our state since ages in mystics have

  • intuitive all along is actually the meat in a row

  • of reality to me

  • it's simply is simply semantics i'll use the word god i'm not afraid use word out

  • that i don't believe in the guy with the bearded i've got to me is another word

  • for missed resource like how did it all starts what's making me speak what is

  • that thing right

  • i called is called mystery

  • so you go through the zipper please see in the movie you talk to these

  • incredibly smart people from all these different fields

  • african having gone through this and you get rid of your big houses in your

  • excess and all that stuff in
