Re: Name one movie, book or experience that changed your world view
The Gods Of Eden
Author William Bramley
This book is what started my journey to look in places I never dared look before. It's gotten deeper from there.

And anything with Tool, Perfect Circle for my music choice

The initial catalyst to it all was my brother dying on my birthday in 97. It is the single worst/best thing that ever happened to me, because it made me question EVERYTHING.

Re: Name one movie, book or experience that changed your world view
Ken Wilber's huge philosophical tome Sex, Ecology, and Spirituality changed my view about Spirituality. Wilber argued that spirituality (as opposed to religion) was something humanity has yet to develop and is a higher stage of development than rationality and science.

After reading that hideously huge book and thinking about it for a few years I came to the exact opposite conclusion: Spirituality is the mother of all scams.

I'm saying that spirituality itself is a very bad misinterpretation of something entirely different that has its origin in sociobiology and physics.

In other words the phenomena that inspires religion and spirituality are real but they're not what people have so far interpreted them as.

X-Files. Everything else in my life has progressed from watching that as a young kid.

X-files opened my mind as a kid too.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 11171736


I love X Files, but can't say it opened my mind "as a kid". I was 22 when my husband convinced me to start watching it with him. I had always flipped past the show on TV. I never knew what I was missing. September 11th initially opened my mind. X Files has definitely contributed to it though.

Maybe not changed my worldview, but David Schwartz' "The Magic of Thinking Big" had a profound effect on me. It's the only self-help book I've ever read that isn't schlocky.
