I don't understand...what is it you want us to explain?
Which part of the movie is giving you trouble?
Does this help?
The Teaching of Don Juan
After lifelong discipline and training, sorcerers acquire thecapacity to perceive the essence of things, a capacity they call
.To perceive the energetic essence of things means that you perceive energy directly. By separating the social part of perception, you'll perceive the
essence of everything.Whatever we are perceiving is energy, but since we can'tdirectly perceive energy, we process our perception to fit amold. This
mold is the social part of perception, which youhave to separate.You have to separate it because it deliberately reduces thescope of what can be
perceived and makes us believe that themold into which we fit our perception is all that exists. Forman to survive now, his perception must change at
its socialbase.This social base of perception is the physical certainty thatthe world is made of concrete objects. I call this a social basebecause a
serious and fierce effort is put out by everybody toguide us to perceive the world the way we do - Carlos Casteneda

Think of the essence of things like the code in the matrix, that bit of information that makes a table a table or a bullet a bullet. Now, once able to
perceive that information the person can take it a step further and influence that code. What you might call casting a spell is really the same as a
computer game character throwing a fireball. Its a piece of information, after all the "essence" of a fire ball is pretty self explanatory, you know
what it is and so the ability to create it is inherently part of your own "essence." Same with flight, shape shifting, and just about everything else.
Think of it like re-writing the codes of the matrix, altering reality by using your essence to influence the essence of all things.
