How can humanity evolve to the next level? How can we tune people into the subtler realities that lie beneath the surface of what we all perceive? If this could be managed, we might discover that humanity and everything else on Earth is embedded in a complex ballet of energy that interacts in ways that we can barely imagine — a ballet that unites us all as one.
Surely, one way to spread this awareness is through the medium of cinema.
Over three years ago, I was filmed for a movie that is now called Time Is Art: Synchronicity and the Collective Dream. The filmmakers are musicians and artists from Brooklyn who are committed to sparking humanity’s collective awareness of this deeper reality — a reality that is constantly speaking to us through phenomena like synchronicities. The idea behind the movie’s title — Time Is Art — is that the ballet of energy in which we all participate can really be viewed as an art form. Rather than living lives of toil, we are all artists, creating our collective dream.
The Time Is Art crew discovered my work back in 2012 through a few articles and book excerpts from my book Active Consciousness that appeared on a variety of sites, including Expanded Consciousness. They contacted me and, as it turns out, I was the first person they filmed. I picked them up at the San Francisco Airport in June 2012 and put them up at my house for a few days during the filming; it was a fun experience!
Of course, the filmmakers’ original conception for Time Is Art was a bit different than it turned out to be in the end; so my portion in the film is quite limited. Ultimately, however, Time Is Art grew to include interviews with many other thinkers and writers about consciousness — for example, Gary Bobroff, Rupert Sheldrake, Richard Tarnas, and Daniel Pinchbeck. The result is a work that one reviewer said “…will do for synchronicity what ‘What the Bleep Do We Know?’ did for the law of attraction.”
So, after three years of working on a shoestring budget, Time Is Art is finally complete. It will premiere in a few cities on November 11, 2015 (currently, in New York City, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Ashland, Austin, Anchorage, and Het Koelhuis, Holland).
However, the theaters will only show the film if they get enough attendees, and those attendees must reserve their $10 ticket by November 4 at the latest.
So the time is now!
