What People are Saying About the Deeper You Go

❝ A glimpse into the diversity of opinion and research on consciousness that captures the imagination and catapults the conversation. The accompanying music and its lyrics are as probing, engaging and reflective as the interviews ❞ ~  The Reverand James Proper, Long Beach, California
❝ This is a short, wonderful introduction to the many complexities associated with the academic study of consciousness. None of it was news to me, but as a general introduction to folks who haven't thought much about consciousness, it provides a good overview. I very much enjoyed the original song. ❞ ~ Dean Radin 
❝ Wow. I'm 6 mos late in experiencing these delicious philosopher  mind bytes, with great music to stimulate the 3 llbs of whatever is oscillating up there. Each proclamation either tickles or rankles one's "self" - if there is such a thing of course. So much more stimulating than the drool inducing interviews of the "great minds." Going to download Consciousness music right now and start dancing. ❞ ~ Maryann Pearson
❝ This is a film whose time has come. ❞ ~ Hermenutic
❝ Hello Lora & Kevin Thank you. Watching it again ! Great job... it was so crazy on site... looks like you got great interviews and it was shot beautifully... Congratulations to you both. ❞ ~ Abi Behar Montefiore, Assistant Director, Center for Consciousness Studies, University of Arizona
❝ Just watched it!! Freakin' fabulous!! I love it...love it...love it!!! Proud to know you--remember the little people when you get famous! The song is nice too--you write that? Un-freakin'believable!! YOU DA MAN!! ❞ ~ Paul Mansfield, Director of Physical Therapy, Milwaukee Area Technical College
❝ Saw it twice. Thought it was extremely professionally done from the cinematography (I streamed it on my 55" TV screen and it was crystal clear, good color balance, good camera angles, lighting, staging), to the sound quality, the background music, the editing, and right through the credits. ❞ ~ Nick Nero,  Author, Entrepreneur
❝ I was honestly engaged and impressed virtually right down to the the song at the end. While I am still at odds with my own consciousness these days, I did find some solace in the fact that the conscious mind is not such a simple thing to understand (or control). The speed of the movie was right on. Not too long to focus on any one viewpoint, not too short to cut their intended points. The music was simply perfect in its selection, sound, and cadence. It did not distract from the message of the interviews in any way, allowing the viewer to listen and adsorb what is a very difficult message for the common mind to adsorb... my lasting takeaway was a heightened awareness of the complexity of my own consciousness. ❞ ~ Nick Nigro, President, ECCS Nationwide Mobile Laboratories
❝ Lora, First !! Thank you for your work!! Consciousness, a product of both. I see differences around the world as a form to create world wisdom. We have a long way to go, but… with people such as yourself - and others with ideas to share, we will succeed. Maybe not the way we perceive at this moment, but we will achieve our humanity. ❞ ~ Cheers MicheleElys blog
❝ Just finished watching 'The Deeper You Go' and it was quite wonderful. It does in the end leave you as it should, with perhaps more questions than answers. I like that it provides so many different views from people who have obviously taken time and care to wonder about consciousness. I loved this! ❞  ~  Blogpost from A State of MindMobile layouts
❝ Just so you know, You two ROCK at promotion, and it feels very genuine, because what you are doing is REALLY COOL! Wanted to let you know! Awesome! ❞ ~ Julia Mossbridge, Consciousness researcher, Author, Entrepreneur
