Hi Folks,
A bit tardy..catching up...

An early cut debut of this film was played at the quantum mind
conference in March 2003. I saw it....

Came away feeling like someone was lecturing me about a quantum
mechanical religion/cult. I don't know how the official version was, but
we were all asked to fill out questionaires... It may have altered the
edit. It's supposed to get QM to the common folk, but it looked no
different to any culty thing - very emotively and manipulative... Just
another form of brand equity doing its dance.

Merry xmas or whatever to all everythingers... :) colin
