Visions Of A Universal Humanity is an optimistic documentary in the Humanity Ascending series
Who should see this film:
Readers of Sylvia Brown and fans of Abraham-Hicks The Vortex
Visions Of A Universal Humanity was billed as a cutting edge look on humankind's potential to create a positive future for the Earth, based on current scientific, social and spiritual realities. This is accurate for the most part, but the description should put more emphasis on the spiritual. Though there is a line up of well-regarded Physicist, Biologist, and other scholars there is also a Space Visionary, and Evolutionary Theologist. The language of the documentary is not that of empirical observation and educated hypothesis that I was expecting. Rather than scientific speculation, the audience was given a lot of metaphors and mystic revelations. For the portion of the audience that does not subscribe to the spiritual point of view of the films host Barbara Marx Hubbard, there is little interest. The uses of terms like “language of light”, “conscious evolution”, and “universal vibration” were a turnoff to those who came expecting a more scientific and sociological analysis of our future.
There are points of Visions Of A Universal Humanity I agree with; we as a species have more agency in our futures than ever, and it is a future of infinite possibilities. The crux of the film however will seem way out there to most viewers. For a documentary the host and speakers are too esoteric and fail to give enough explanation of their vision of the future to be convincing to most viewers. To those operating in the same paradigm as Hubbard, I am sure this film is an enjoyable breath of fresh air in an atmosphere of negative outlooks.
This film will play again Wednesday, Feb. 10, 10 a.m. at the Victoria Hall Theater
