This paper discusses how W. Arntz, B. Chasse, and M. Vicente's movie "What the Bleep do we Know!?" is a documentary-style film that covers everything from string theory to a Polish wedding and how it is part documentary with fourteen scientists interviewed throughout the film, discussing string theory, reality, and quantum physics in detail, along with a story about a fictional woman named Amanda struggling to come to grips with her own realities in life. The paper portrays the author's personal review of the film and how he considers the film a potentially life-changing event in understanding our own reality.

From the Paper:

"A couple of the other physics concepts can be difficult to comprehend, as well. For example, one concept is that things can exist in more than one space at a time, but people do not choose to see them, and so, when they look at them they disappear. This section of the film might turn away a lot of viewers, because much of the discussion may be over their heads and the might find it boring. These ideas are some of the most "out there" of the film, and the hardest for the mathematicians to really get across. The talk of what is real and what a person sees versus what they remember was understandable, but many of the other concepts may just be too odd for people to wrap their heads around. For example, the atom discussion on how nothing is solid, even though it appears solid, could be hard for people to take, too. Wise people say that it is true, but for most people, if you hit a cement block with your hand, your experience is that it's solid enough to break your hand, and they will believe that experience more than the mathematicians. These are concepts that bear study and discussion, but for many people, they need "concrete" evidence (pun intended), and this film is more about the esoteric than the concrete."
