The Deeper You Go (Consciousness documentary update)

#1
Greetings,

We are offering people a chance for a private online screening of our film on consciousness, The Deeper You Go.

Film synopsis: Diving into the essence of awareness, The Deeper You Go, The Interviews, features the preeminent minds in the debate on consciousness. Through the lens of scientific inquiry, the film makers probe the most fundamental questions on the nature of the self. Is consciousness a byproduct of our brain or is the brain a vehicle for consciousness?

Featuring: Eben Alexander, Susan Blackmore, David Chalmers, Deepak Chopra, Patricia Churchland, Stanislas Dehaene, Daniel Dennett, Stuart Hameroff, Dean Radin, John Searle and Rupert Sheldrake.

Best, Lora and Kevin

It hurts the credibility of the film to include the likes of Susan Blackmore. She's admitted on Skeptiko that she doesn't keep up to date with the research and no longer considers herself an expert in consciousness studies. So unless you've included that in your film, it is missing some important facts.

And have you listened to Churchland lately?

K9, check out the promo here:


I think you'll see that the film appears to be a no-holds-barred examination of the issue of consciousness and the hard problem. As such, it seems to present pro- and anti-materialist views and leave it up to the viewer to decide. At any rate, that's the impression I get, so I think you could be being a little bit harsh in your evaluation of it.

Hi K9, I appreciate your response and interest into this discourse. I invite you to sign up and view the documentary. Kind Regards.
I watched the free screening yesterday. I'd say it was disappointing, but I had already guessed a film featuring Blackmore would not be well informed. It met my expectations in that regard. Not a film that I would recommend.
