WORLDS Produced by Richard L. Thompson, 45 minutes
When computers appeared, some scientists predicted
it would soon be
possible to simulate the human mind. Decades passed with little
progress. Now a new approach has begun. Scientists are experimenting
with projecting the consciousness of subjects into robot bodies moving
within computer-simulated worlds. The senses of human subjects are
linked to a computer, using video monitors and joint movement sensors.
This enables the subjects to experience themselves to be seeing and
moving within a three-dimensional computer-generated world. The movie
Matrix has popularized this
idea. This video reviews some examples
of simulated worlds technology. It also explores parallels between the
situation of the subject in the simulated world and that of the
conditioned self described in Vedic Sankhya philosophy. This video is
for general audiences.
MIND AND BRAIN Produced by Richard L. Thompson, 30 minutes
The relationship between the conscious self and
the physical brain has
proven puzzling to scientists and philosophers. Mind and Brain
this relationship, starting with the modern theories and dreams of
artificial intelligence researchers. Some AI exponents believe that
sophisticated computers can be conscious just as human beings are.
Parallel processors simulating neural networks are believed by many to
be able to duplicate all human cognitive abilities. However, here we
see that consciousness involves more than just extremely complex
behavior, whether that of a brain or that of a computer. Philosophical
arguments and empirical evidence are introduced indicating that the
conscious self is distinct from the physical body. This video is
intended for college classroom presentations.
THE HIDDEN HISTORY OF THE HUMAN RACE,PART I Produced by
Richard Thompson, 30 Minutes
This video sheds new light on the modern theory of
human evolution by presenting several examples of suppression and
misrepresentation of evidence in the fields of archeology and
paleoanthropology. It shows how the present theory, considered by many
to be factual, has been developed and maintained by ignoring and
discrediting evidence of equal or better quality that is against it.
The anomalous evidence presented is a small fraction of the total
gathered. All the evidence is described in the book Forbidden Archeology,
available at www.sciencereligionbooks.com.
This video is for general audiences.
MODELS OF NATURAL SELECTION Produced by Richard Thompson, 30
The neo-Darwinian theory of evolution is based on
the assumption that all existing organisms are connected to one another
by closely spaced chains of viable intermediate forms. Unfortunately,
this assumption is seldom subjected to careful scientific scrutiny.
This video shows the need for clearly defined models in the
neo-Darwinian theory of evolution. It shows that required intermediate
forms fail to exist for certain key models, and it discloses the
inadequacy of the theory in general. The video is based on a lecture
delivered at a scientific conference on evolution in Budapest. It is
aimed at scientifically oriented audiences.
OF THE SACRED UNIVERSE Produced by Richard Thompson, 49
of the Sacred Universe video
shows that the cosmology of the Bhagavata
Purana is a sophisticated
system, with multiple levels of meaning that encode at least four
different astronomical, geographical, and spiritual world models. It
is illustrated with computer graphics animations and diagrams
which make the subject matter come alive.
MYSTERIOUS ORBITS Produced by Richard Thompson, 25 Minutes
Orbits shows, with stunning
computer graphics, how the islands and oceans of the Bhagavata
correspond to the inner and outer boundaries of orbits of the planets
as seen from the earth.
Both videos give evidence of advanced astronomy in India many
hundreds and even thousands of years ago.
