DescriptionThis autobiographical film shows how the video maker lost her fear of technology and learned to love her motorcycle instead. Computer animation, Super-8 film and live- action are intercut in order to question the general representation of science documentaries. Most people want to believe in an absolute truth of science because it is so reassuring. The video discredits this view with the help of strange new scientific theories like Quantum Physics, Chaos Theory, Synchronicity, Parallel Universes and Lucid Dreams. We can all become scientists and discover Unus Mundus, or Carl Jung's 'One World', which exists behind the poles of spirit and matter.
