Show Notes

Do the languages and cosmologies of Indigenous peoples hold the keys to the mysteries of quantum physics and the nature of reality? That is the intriguing premise of The Language of Spirituality, a documentary film about the intersection of spirituality, modern science and language.

Inspired by a series of dialogues between western physicists, Indigenous scholars, elders and linguists, the documentary begins by exploring how language and worldview influence each other. Filmmaker Anthony DellaFlora captures this momentous meeting of minds and the beginnings of the ongoing dialogue in The Language of Spirituality. Participants in the dialogues, including Fred Alan Wolf (What the Bleep Do We Know?), Bohm colleague the late F. David Peat and Blackfoot scholar Leroy Little Bear, speak about the dialogues and their implications for the future.For more information, visit
