“There are only two ways to live your life; One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as if to everything is. I believe in the latter” Albert Einstein

Is it possible that some people can read your mind, “Telepathy”? or look into the future, “Clairvoyancy”? Why is it that some people can cure themselves while in the last stages of a deadly cancer, “Healing”? . Does mind over matter really exist, and if so, how do we explain this “Telekinesis”?

In the US millions of people claim to ‘see’ distant objects or places “Remote Viewing”. Where is the boundary between ‘real’ magical powers and fraud? Can these ‘miracles of the mind’ be explained?

These and more questions will be answered in the quirky feature award winning, documentary “Something Unknown is doing we don’t know what ” by Dutch filmmaker Renée Scheltema, who was inspired to explore the realms of psychic phenomena after a series of curious and unexplainable events happened around her all in a short period of time.

She traveled to the US to meet up with the top scientists, para-psychologists, psychologists, physicians, and doctors within the field of research, like Prof Charles Tart, Prof Gary Schwartz, Dr Larry Dossey and Dr Dean Radin. Along the way she collects anecdotal stories from celebrities within the field, such as psychic detective Nancy Myer, author Arielle Ford, astronaut Dr Edgar Mitchell and intuitive Catherine Yunt.

Renée found that experiments of today reveal how science is verifying numerous kinds of connections : ‘mind to mind’; ‘mind to body’ and ‘mind to world’, demonstrating that psychic abilities are part of our inherent nature.

The filmmaker discovers that psychological research demonstrates the existence of five major psychic abilities, called “The Big 5”:

  1. Precognitionis an alleged psychic ability to predict the future. It sometimes comes as a vision, a mental flash or a dream.
  2. Telepathyrefers to mind-reading or mind-to-mind communication. It literally means ‘distant feeling’.
  3. Clairvoyanceis the psychic ability to perceive remote places, objects or people. A scientific term for clairvoyance is ‘Remote Viewing’.
  4. Psychokinesisor in short “PK” is the ability to move objects with the power of the mind only.
  5. Healing is a spiritual practice that may afford gradual relief from pain or sickness, and sometimes brings about sudden ‘miracle cures’.
