Mind Revealing

Life lived in the absence of the psychedelic experience is life trivialized,
life denied, life enslaved to the ego.

The Universe as a place of mystery and wonder.

Lord Martin Rees is an astrophysicist who paints a fascinating picture of how we might be changed by what we do not yet know. These programs focus on: Was there a beginning? Whether we are alone? What’s the future of the cosmos? What is the nature of reality? With each advance, new questions come into sharper focus. The key issue is what we still don’t know.

Astronomer Royal Martin Rees turns his attention to the structure of the universe, examining the perceived building blocks of life – atoms. However, he suggests they only actually account for five per cent of the mass of the universe, prompting a discussion with leading luminaries in the field, such as Professor Steven Weinberg and Professor Max Tegmark, about what makes up the remainder, often referred to as dark matter.

Director: Alejandro Jodorowsky
Producer: Alejandro Jodorowsky
Genre: Art House / Fantasy
Country: Mexico / United States
Language: English / Spanish

The psychedelic masterpiece about Jesus searching for enlightenment.

The Holy Mountain gives the omniscient view of what social engineering caused by greed has done to the modern world, but shows us how to live and not give into a material world.
Alejandro Jodorowsky’s flood of sacrilegious imagery and existential symbolism is a spiritual quest for enlightenment pitting illusion against truth. The Alchemist assembles together a group of people from all walks of life to represent the planets in the solar system. The occult adept’s intention is to put his recruits through strange mystical rites and divest them of their wordly baggage before embarking on a trip to Lotus Island. There they ascend the Holy Mountain to displace the immortal gods who secretly rule the Universe.
