You are starting a journey to a world of senses other than your own… We experience life through the five main senses, but even these are better developed in some animals known. Smell your way across an ocean as salmon do. See through the eyes of various aspects of a fly, which is a human hand when he is about to attack. Amazing effects reveal the secrets of animal perception.Episode 1: The Sixth Sense The animals use their senses of human beings who are unaware. Sensitivity to electromagnetic fields of the earth, or time pressure, can be used to aid navigation. Some animals can predict earthquakes. Predators to put these non-lethal ways to use: a shark in the homes of the electricity of the body of its prey, the vampire bats detect infrared radiation from the blood, a rattlesnake and see a picture of the warmth of his victim.Episode 2: The sense view A vulture can detect a carcass from a great distance, four-eyed fish can see above and below the water at the same time, a fly’s multifaceted eye sees a world very different from a human eye, while other insects can see ultraviolet light. And the Lions have an area of the retina that, in fact empathize with their prey.Episode 3: The sense of sound The human ear is limited in scope and are deaf to record a conversation or the elephant under pitched squealing mice. Whales use sound to communicate over hundreds of miles of ocean, while the spiders while listening to the beating of wings of the dam and the kangaroo rat has a sensitive ear can hear strike rattlesnake – and avoid . Birds, in turn, use sound to detect changes in climate and as an aid to navigation. Episode 4: Super Scents The smell is very useful in hunting, protection of a species, mating … and navigation. Petrels use it to find fish in the open sea, springbok issue a “warning” the smell of the herd as an indicator of a predator, salamanders, females inject their aphrodisiac, and epic journey of a salmon in the sea to spawn and die is achieved through their sense of smell.Episode 5: timing Courtship, egg laying, hibernation … The cycles of the earth, moon and sun are the rhythms that govern life. The perception of all animals of time varies according to your heart rate.A shrew lives 30 times faster than an elephant, so the time seems to pass more slowly. Also shown is a rare eruption of 17 years of U.S. cricket.Episode 6: Making Sense The end of the film shows how each animal has a unique view of the world derives from a combination of different senses.The mind creates mental maps of navigational skills, which can also be affected by genetic programming. Other super-senses are the result of the need to hunt or avoid being eaten. The mind decides what skills you need to survive.

For most of us, pain as a concept is something that does not spare a second thought: you stub your toe, it hurts a little, then it disappears. But to scientists, the experience of pain makes for fascinating study and an understanding that can potentially unlock new methods of treatment and pain relief.Horizon displays the latest research on pain and progress has been made through studies around the world from a woman in London who has felt no pain in his life, a man in the U.S. he cut his arm to survive, after being housed in an oven.Geneticist Dr. John Woods travels the world looking for people who feel strange pain or not feeling any pain, and believes that the secret of pain is in our DNA. In fact, after two years of studying the DNA of three generations of an Italian family who are not extreme temperatures, he discovered the family share a mutation in the gene that blocks the path to certain types of pain and therefore the names of the syndrome after them.Similarly, a woman in London who feels no pain at all (remember an early experience where his mother, the smell of burning flesh, who is kneeling on a radiator and had to tear the skin), described his relief finally able to explain their condition.Meanwhile, we learn about the importance of early life experiences and their importance in the development of our pain pathways. An experiment on brain activity in premature babies (which is therefore subject to intensive care treatment) compared with full-term infants show a marked difference in brain activity, suggesting that premature babies have increased sensitivity to pain.

Mountain climbing can be an adventurous and fun sport. But not when it goes wrong. Touching the Void documents the story of two climbers, Joe Simpson and Simon Yates on a disastrous climb in the Andes in 1985. Through the climbers stories and reenactments the viewer sees the horrors that Simpson and Yates had to go through. Just when you think they are in the clear it gets worse. Truly a magnificent story that needs to be shared.‘Touching the void’ is a documentary film made by Kevin MacDonald, shown at the 2003 Toronto Film Festival. It features Brendan Mackey as Simpson and Nicholas Aaron as Yates, enacting the climb and descent of the two adventurous mountaineers on the west face of the Siula Grande in the Peruvian Andes in 1985.These daring and experienced mountaineers climbed the mountain without setting up ropes or base camps ahead of time. Though they had to tackle a snowstorm and some treacherous climbing, they safely reached the summit in three days after scaling about 21,000 feet.But that was not it; the climb down turned to be more complicated and fiercely tested their nerve. Simpson broke his leg badly after falling down at a crucial juncture. Yates decided to try to lower Simpson down the mountain, one 300-foot section of rope at a time. What added to the woes of these steely mountaineers was the fact that they had run out of gas to melt snow making them unable to stop as night came, when unfortunately a violent snowstorm began. Their plodding, excruciatingly painful journey hit a hurdle when Yates accidentally lowered Simpson over the edge of a cliff.They couldn’t hear each other’s cries in the raging storm, and, Yates, uncertain as to Simpson’s position, and gradually sliding down the slope himself, had to cut the rope that connected them, sending Simpson plummeting to a certain fatal end. Quite astonishingly Simpson survived the fall, and was faced with the greater challenge of getting off the mountain alone with no food, no water, and a broken leg

Hinduism has avatars, Buddhism has devas and bodhisattvas, the Greeks wrote about daemons, and other spiritual beings similar to angels, as guardian spirits and spiritual guides have been trained in tribal cultures.

‘Ibogaine: Rite of Passage’ is a 50 minute documentary that shows the different aspects of this special substance, that is derived from the root of an African plant that grows in Gabon, by means of personal experiences and explanations of ex-addicts, treatment providers and experts.This film includes the story of Cy, who had been using a mixture of heroine and amphetamine for about 11 years, but more his concern for his three children and his ambitions are compelling him to give up his addiction which is taking an emotional toll on him; and Moussavou, who had suffered from an illness for more than a year and hopes that eating the holy plant will be the starting point of a new phase in her life.This plant was originally used during initiations of the Bwiti culture, but in the sixties, the anti-addictive properties of this psychoactive substance were discovered by Howard Lotsof.Despite the results that show the efficacy of Ibogaine, the pharmaceutical companies and the government show no interest and stay skeptical. The decision about the use of Ibogaine in the treatment of addiction appears to be made on political and economical, rather than a rational basis.

"This documentary from the Vice team borders on the absolutely most scary of their series.Beware of Scopolamine it is a killer drug with NO benefits.The team went to Columbia to explore the report of the most dangerous drug in the world; not due to recreational use but because of it’s use as a criminal and deadly agent. There is nothing in the deadly country of Columbia which the peolpe fear more than this drug..or falling foul of it’s use.Scopolamine, also known as “The Devil’s Breath.” is a drug which is so very powerful and renders those subjected to it completely void of their own will…they are totally under the control of the criminal who has administered it!! They can be taken to the ATM and withdraw all their money or drive to their own house and empty every item and anyone observing would believe they have done so under their own free will. It is this robbery of the persons free will which makes this so lethal.It is used by crime gangs and prostitutes to rob abuse and often kill the individual…it is used in abductions and there is nothing at all recreational about this drug.This is one drug that even drug abusers in their own right avoid like the plague…one manipulator describes it as worse than Anthrax.Scopolamine and its use in Columbia has completely changed the Vice teams thoughts and they too were so careful to flush the drug down the toilet….it can be carried airborne or administered in a drink …just so lethal and frightening.Victims who survive the experience remember nothing of what they have done and usually have repeated flashback of memory loss.Beware of this killer drug."

"This documentary film is an episode of The Biography Channel’s “I Survived - Beyond and Back” series which outlines a profound childhood Near Death Experience. As a result of a martial arts demonstration which went horribly wrong, Raymond Kinman, (a very devout Catholic boy) suffered a traumatic head injury in which he was rendered unconscious – without heartbeat or breathing for twelve minutes, only to be revived by CPR.During this brief period, Raymond had a profound Near Death Experience which was sadly misinterpreted by a Catholic Priest – the coaching he received was, “Since I couldn’t say that I saw Jesus, it was probably a trick of Satan”… resulting in decades of guilt and shame for a nine year old boy.During this brief window of enlightenment, Raymond was reunited with his lost dog, “Skippy” and he met God “face to face”, which eventuated in a life – long inability to reconcile what he was shown (when he died) with what he as being taught in the Catholic Church.Raymond’s message is clean and simple. “Our purpose in life is NOT TO LEARN AND GROW, as is often trumpeted by modern gurus, priests, ministers and teachers, “When I died I was gifted with INFINITE knowledge and wisdom -we have nothing whatever to learn”. “We are here to Love. That is our purpose – all of us”. As a lifelong professional artist, Raymond has also created a series of paintings of some of the images he saw when he died. At his website you can see some of those images, as well as to listen to an audio version of one of his lectures in which he describes his Near Death Experience in remarkable detail:Ray asked Documentarytube to bring this video to the public attention and we felt it a worthwhile inclusion in our selection of videos and we wish him well in the future.http://LovingIsWhy.com"

In the hands of God, filmmaker Joe Cultrera explores the very personal story of how his brother – Paul – was molested in the 1960s by his parish priest, Father Joseph Birmingham, who allegedly abused nearly 100 children. The producer Joe Cultrera tells the story of faith betrayed and how his brother Paul and the rest of the family fought Cultrera a scandal that continues to affect dozens of churches across the country.“I was inspired by my brother’s strength of spirit in surviving his abuse,” says Joe Cultrera. “His story was unlike any I had seen in the media. I thought a detailed film about his experience and that of my family would prove healing and liberation of others.”Paul Cultrera and his siblings were raised in an Italian-Catholic family in Salem, Massachusetts, and attended Catholic school from kindergarten through high school. From an early age they were immersed in the beliefs and teachings of the Catholic Church. “It was the Catholic Church, and everything else was hell,” recalls Paul. “All the world beyond the confines of the Catholic Church was doomed. All that is presented in terms of sin.”At age 14, Paul, an altar boy at St. James Parish was under the guidance of Fr. Birmingham. Birmingham was young and friendly, often taking children on trips and invites them to the rectory for Friday and Saturday night pizza parties. It was during the confession that Paul’s relationship with the Father. Birmingham changed. Confessing to masturbation led to private “counseling” sessions in the rectory, where Paul was sexually abused. Birmingham also abused him during overnight trips in black Ford Galaxie Birmingham and on trips out of town.
