CODE 12, 87min., USA
Directed by Melissa Tittl
As the world nears a precipice of suffering, technology has become the answer to our problems. It seems that even with the greatest discoveries we still haven’t figured out how to fix some of the main problems that plague humanity. Some people refer to this ceiling as the matrix, an invisible hand that puppets our every move on this planet. Melissa Tittl, investigative journalist and filmmaker never really thought anything of this concept until a personal experience that haunted her. It became a journey to unravel an ancient code in the tombs of the pharaohs, the temple walls and ancient sites all over the world. She uncovers not only one code but two. One code that we use today in our current mathematical systems and a second code that hints at something more ancient and much more profound. A computer programer warns her, “If you are in a simulation and you are asking these questions who ever simulated you, isn’t going to let you get this far. ” Putting danger aside, she pursues her mission. She interviews geneticists, archeologists, biblical scholars, quantum physicists that have all picked up the same code in all their work. Could this be the next part of our evolution? Melissa weaves together profound evidence that our greatest human potential is hidden in plain sight, waiting for us to understand how the universe really works.
