Now the Lathe of Heaven was a new one to me and sounds really good. I read the Wiki on the book and there seemed to be a LOT of stuff going on in it, with a unique premise. It was also very interesting to me the issues the book predicted we'd have to deal with in the future—especially global warming. I didn't realize it was a topic way back in 1971! Anyway, it's another movie to add to my Watch List.

I watched both versions. The 2002 version missed the point of the book.
  • I also watched, and liked, Bill Moyers' interview with Ursula K. LeGuin about "Lathe of Heaven":


  • The Lathe of Heaven 1980 Movie Review - Analysis w/ Spoilers:

Although this wasn't the author's intention, to me the story could've been a take on what's happening at / after death: George died in the nuclear explosion, and doesn't realize it. He notices that he changes reality, and finds a more likely explanation is that his "effective" dreams do that. I propose that this is what's happening after death when you don't realize you died, and aren't skilled in controlling your emotions which materialize as your reality.

I agree with the author's contention (confirmed in the interview) that good intentions, acted upon by unskilled individuals, are most likely to end up disastrously. A more passive, reserved, cautious attitude is advisable.

Unexpectedly thought provoking movie / book / author! Thanks @Deb for instigating this experience.  :)

Hi Deb,

I'm sorry but we've been binge watching "Stargate" now for quite a while now and haven't seen anything else. I don't have a clue about this movie.  It doesn't sound familiar at all, but it sure does sound interesting.  If I come across anything like that, I'll let you know.

These additions look great. Jbseth I remember your other post about Stargate SG1, and it also had a recommendation from someone on Facebook, so for sure I need to watch at least that specific episode! Oh and the links problem wasn't anything that you did, I think it's the way the software is set up here—to not include punctuation at the end of a link. I just had to highlight the links and click on the URL button (world) in the editor. The About Time movie looks interesting and I love Bill Nighy (after watching Love Actually too many times, it used to be my Christmas tradition and he was great in it).

I watched the Tuning In documentary a few years ago and was impressed with it, plus it introduced me to a number of channelers I'd not heard of before. It was at a time when I was coming from Abraham-Hicks over to Seth and not quite sure what to make of it all. It helped with my "research." One of the channelers, Geoffrey Hoppe, is (or was) living not far from me. But beyond the documentary, the channelers convinced me that Seth is where it's at for me. :)

Now the Lathe of Heaven was a new one to me and sounds really good. I read the Wiki on the book and there seemed to be a LOT of stuff going on in it, with a unique premise. It was also very interesting to me the issues the book predicted we'd have to deal with in the future—especially global warming. I didn't realize it was a topic way back in 1971! Anyway, it's another movie to add to my Watch List.

HELP!?: A few weeks ago I started half-watching a movie (I was distracted so only caught the highlights) about a police officer/detective who works nights, and unknown to him his wife goes into labor when he's out on the case, I think in a subway station. He has a interaction with a woman at the scene of whatever is going on. She seems to know him. At the end she says "congratulations on your new daughter" and then somehow manages to fall and get killed by a train. The premise is this woman shows up in his life every 9 years, and she's from the future. The next scene is daughter is 9 years old (mom died during childbirth). Then something came up and I had to turn the movie off, but my thought was it was getting interesting and I'd go back and watch the whole thing. Which I tried to do yesterday.

Well, I didn't catch the title of it at the time. I don't have cable TV so watch either Amazon Prime or Netflix. Neither one of them indicates I'd watched this show, and I have not seen it in recommendations. Does this movie sound familiar to anyone here? Title?

"The Lathe of Heaven"
  • 1980 Trailer:
  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lathe_of_Heaven
    Quote
    The Lathe of Heaven is a 1971 science fiction novel by the late American writer Ursula K. Le Guin. The plot concerns a character whose dreams alter past and present reality.
    ... The title is taken from the writings of Chuang Tzu (Zhuang Zhou) — specifically a passage from Book XXIII, paragraph 7, quoted as an epigraph to Chapter 3 of the novel:
    To let understanding stop at what cannot be understood is a high attainment. Those who cannot do it will be destroyed on the lathe of heaven. (知止乎其所不能知,至矣。若有不即是者,天鈞敗之。)
    ... Plot summary: The book is set in Portland, Oregon, in the year 2002. ...
    ...  alternative worlds, based on an assortment of utopian (and dystopian) premises:
    - When Haber directs George to dream a world without racism, the skin of everyone on the planet becomes a uniform light gray.
    - An attempt to solve the problem of overpopulation proves disastrous when George dreams a devastating plague which wipes out much of humanity and gives the current world a population of one billion rather than seven billion.
    - George attempts to dream into existence "peace on Earth" – resulting in an alien invasion of the Moon which unites all the nations of Earth against the threat. ...

    The 2002 adaptation discards a significant portion of the plot and some of the characters. Le Guin had no involvement in making the film.

Hi All,

Probably one of the best movies or shows, I’ve ever seen dealing with “alternate realities” is an episode of Stargate SG1, called “Point of View”. This specific show, “Point of View” was from Season 3, Episode 6.


In the show Stargate SG1, two of the main characters are Major Samantha (Sam) Carter and her boss, Colonel Jack O’Neill. In this reality, Sam and Jack are friends and they work together but their relationship is strictly platonic.  Sam, with her vast knowledge of all things technical, she has a doctorate degree in physics, is a huge asset to the SG1 team.


In this specific show, the Sam of our reality meets one of her alternate selves (whom I’ll call ASam).  ASam comes through the Stargate into our reality, to escape from her alternate reality. In ASam’s alternate reality, the Gou’ald, the bad guys, have recently invaded planet Earth, and have started killing and enslaving all humans there.

In her alternate reality, ASam was married to Colonel Jack O’Neill and in that reality, where the Gou’ald invaded, Jack was recently killed.

In this show, the writers deal very intelligently with the interesting relationships that come about in this reality between ASam and the Sam of this reality and ASam and the Colonel Jack O’Neill of this reality.

Hi Deb, Hi inavalan, All All,

Wow, there’s some really great suggestions here.



Deb, Thanks for fixing my links, I’m not sure what I did that messed them up.

I’ve seen the movie “Cloud Atlas” some time ago. I thought it was really pretty awesome. I didn’t know that it was written/directed by the Wachowski [Matrix] siblings, but that makes perfect sense to me.


Inavalan,  I watched some of the “Spirit Channelers in America” and that’s really fascinating. I knew about Daryl Anka and his channeled entity “Bashar”. Some time ago I bought and read his book “Bashar: Blueprint for Change” and I really liked it. I found that a lot of his messages were similar to Seth’s. I’ve also heard of Kryon, but I’m not really familiar with most of the others. It’s interesting to hear what the various channelers have to say. Thank you very much for posting that.


While going through Deb’s list I saw the movie, “Somewhere in Time” which is a really a great movie. It reminded me of another movie having to do with “time” with a similar title called “About Time” with Bill Nighly.and Rachel McAdams. It’s also very good.

Awesome, these all look great! I have a feeling it's going to be a long cold winter here, so I'll have plenty of things to watch.

@ jbseth I did see What Dreams back when it was in theaters. I thought it was a very cool movie but I hadn't discovered Seth at that point so I need to watch it again from my new perspective. BTW for some reason the wiki links you added were dropping off the closing parenthesis, so the links weren't working properly. I fixed them.

@inavalan the movies you put up are completely new to me! They both look good, I'm looking forward to seeing them.

I can see this list continuing to grow....
