The most controversial subject brought up in What the BLEEP Do We Know!? was not the concept of sub-quantum information as the substrate of all life (Planck Scale); nor was it the idea that quantum physics may have as much to say about God as religion. Nope. As per audience response, it’s the ships – those bloomin’ invisible ships on the horizon that only the shaman could see.

 

In researching What the BLEEP!?, Candace Pert and other scientists related the same story about the pre-Columbus era Caribbean tribe who perceived a disturbance on the ocean’s horizon but could not see the clipper ships anchored offshore as an example of how incredibly selective and narrow human perception can be.

 

As disturbing as the thought is, recent studies in cognitive psychology reveal several fascinating aspects to human perception that give the shaman and the invisible ships validation. Inattentional blindness is the most pertinent.
