The Connected Universe

The Connected Universe is a new movie by Malcom Carter. In this movie, we discover the science behind interbeing – the interconnectedness of all things in the Universe. In the trailer to the movie presented here, Malcom Carter says,

“The connected universe is a fascinating journey of exploration into the interconnection of all things in the universe. Connection is vital to the human experience. So many people today feel alone in a city surrounded by millions of people. Why is that happening?

That connection is a part of who we are and it is something that we need to understand. It’s a subject that we need to explore further.

We are in an exciting time right now where our science is beginning to show that we really are all connected and that we really are all one.”

The main proponent of the science behind these ideas is Nassim Haramein, the Director of Research at the Resonance Foundation. Like me, he was deeply inspired by the works of Albert Einstein and continues to pursue his ideas.

The term, interbeing, was coined by Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh and it is one of his major teachings. These teachings relate to the insight of interbeing which is being explored in the movie. We can understand what it means by considering that nothing exists by itself alone. Everything has to inter-be with everything else. When conditions are right, things manifest. When the conditions are no longer right, the things no longer manifest.

Just think about it. Nothing you have and nothing you are has an independent existence. The chair that you are sitting on is only a chair because the legs and the back are put together in a prescribed way to make it a chair. Break it down to its essence, the wood from the chair came from a tree. The tree grew because it was in the forest and received the light of the sun. The sun is there because several supernovae exploded over billions of years in this region of the galaxy before the solar system was born. So we can take this all the way back to the big bang!

Malcom is still raising money on Indiegogo to complete the film. Won’t you please help out with a small or large contribution?
