Let me tell you why you're here. You're here because you know something. What you know, you can't explain.
But you feel it. You've felt it your entire life. That there's something wrong with the world.
You don't know what it is, but it's there...like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad.
It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about?

Site Update: Zeitgeist movies added to Movies and Documentaries section

Zeitgeist: Beyond the Pale, the 4th installment of the 'Zeitgeist Film Series', [anticipated release in late 2012 / early 2013] will continue its exploration of culture - this time from the perspective of what comprises the values dominant in society today and what defines their merit with respect to social sustainability.

This defiantly critical work will compare the social norms and established practices of contemporary society to the largely ignored benchmark of our scientific reality, illuminating the growing, detrimental separation between rational, objective and progressive thought and the traditional practices and presumptions which continue to dominate our societal operations today.

The focus will be on culturally dominant value systems, beliefs and institutions, with the challenge proposed: Are your values and beliefs sustainable? Are the deeply held, conditioned beliefs and reinforced patterns of behavior common today actually serving to advance our societies? Or are these beliefs holding back and even corrupting the human species to an extent that might lead to our extinction?

Zeitgeist: Beyond The Pale, as the title suggests, will move beyond taboo and social inhibition in form. It will hold nothing sacred except the interest to consider that dynamic alignment with nature itself in the hope that our values and practices can be adapted to what actually "works", exploring the evolutionary baggage which perpetuates the ongoing patterns of war, imbalance, division, greed, abuse and other characteristics of modern society that many today often just accept as "givens" for the human condition.
