Just love watching new-age crystal-worshiping zealots supporting this movie as "real science".
It was a joke of movie in 04...it is the same flop of a joke today.
Total rubbish and about as scientifically accurate as any one movie in the "Back To The Future" trilogy.

Wrong board for that. . . its pseudo science hoakem. . . . i believe that means it belongs in the Philosophy section. . . .
The film was also discussed in a letter published in Physics Today that challenges how physics is taught, saying teaching fails to "expose the mysteries physics has encountered [and] reveal the limits of our understanding." In the letter, the authors write "the movie illustrates the uncertainty principle with a bouncing basketball being in several places at once. There's nothing wrong with that. It's recognized as pedagogical exaggeration. But the movie gradually moves to quantum 'insights' that lead a woman to toss away her antidepressant medication, to the quantum channeling of Ramtha, the 35,000-year-old Atlantis god, and on to even greater nonsense." It went on to say that "Most laypeople cannot tell where the quantum physics ends and the quantum nonsense begins, and many are susceptible to being misguided,"
