So I got the “What the Bleep Do We Know?” DVD set for Christmas.
If you’ve not seen the movie, it’s about how we are all creators of of own reality. This idea is promoted with a blend of mysticism and quantum physics wrapped around a story of a woman coming to terms with her life, all spliced together between interviews with physicists and new age gurus.
The box set has 6 hours of extended interviews and that’s mainly why I wanted to own it.
Right now, I’ve just finished watching the interview with “Ramtha”, AKA JZ Knight AKA a woman who channels Ramtha, a 35,000 year old spirit from Atlantis.
Where do I start? I mean, what the fuck is this?
A woman channeling a spirit from Atlantis who speaks english with a slight irish accent? She (or should I say he?) wouldn’t even cooperate in the interview – every other question was turned into a question for the poor soul interviewing her! I felt bad for the guy. He’d ask questions like ‘Who are you, what is Ramtha?’ and she’d smile coyly and ask ‘Who are you?’ and then sit back and intently stare, waiting for an answer.
This sort of behavior went on for the whole interview. I couldn’t even make myself watch it in its entirety. It was a slow, drawn out, painful experience.
I realize that maybe a 35,000 year old spirit such as Ramtha would be annoyingly hostile to interview questions, or just unable to really talk to us on our level. But you’d think if you’d mastered eternal life, out of body experiences, multiple languages, and so on and so forth, you’d be pretty good at doing interviews. Especially when a business empire has been built up around you for many decades.
Honestly, I’m really disappointed to learn that JZ Knight/Ramtha and her School of Enlightenment are so involved in this movie. Supposedly 2 of the 3 directors are also students at this School of Enlightenment.
Here’s an official bio of Ramtha, from Wikipedia:
“Ramtha is an entity that JZ Knight, an American self-claimed spiritual medium claims to channel. According to Knight, Ramtha was a Lemurian warrior who raised an army and fought against the tyrants of the times, the Atlantians, over 35,000 years ago. Ramtha led an army of over 2.5 million across the continents, conquering 2/3 of the known world, which was going through cataclysmic geological changes. According to his teachings, he led the army for ten years until he was betrayed and almost killed.
Knight further claims that Ramtha spent the next seven years in isolation recovering and observing nature, among other things. He later mastered many skills, including foresight and out-of-body experiences, until he led his army to the Indus River when aged in his late seventies. Ramtha taught them everything he knew for 120 days, before he ascended before them. He made a promise to his army that he would come back to teach them again, and so he appeared to JZ Knight in 1977 to re-educate the “forgotten gods”, those who had forgotten themselves and their divinity.”
How on earth do you respond to something like that?
