The filmmaker discovers that psychological research demonstrates the existence of five major psychic abilities, called "The Big 5":
is an alleged psychic ability to predict the future. It sometimes comes as a vision, a mental flash or a dream.
refers to mind-reading or mind-to-mind communication. It literally means 'distant feeling'.
is the psychic ability to perceive remote places, objects or people. A scientific term for clairvoyance is 'Remote Viewing'.
or in short "PK" is the ability to move objects with the power of the mind only.
is a spiritual practice that may afford gradual relief from pain or sickness, and sometimes brings about sudden 'miracle cures'.
Is it possible that some people can read your mind?(Telepathy) or look into the future? (Clairvoyance) Why is it that some people can cure themselves while in the last stages of a deadly cancer? (Healing). Does mind over matter (Telekinesis) really exist, and if so, how do we explain this? People claim to see distant objects or places (Remote Viewing). Do they really see something? And where is the boundary between 'real' psychic powers and fraud?
Can these miracles of the mind be explained? These questions and more are explored and answered in this fascinating and quirky feature documentary "Something Unknown... is Doing We Dont Know What" by Dutch filmmaker Renée Scheltema.
