By coincidence, John is present during the next catastrophic event: a plane crash in which 81 people lose their lives. John learns that Lucinda's sheet also contains the geographical coordinates of the events. Interpreting the following numbers, John tries and fails to prevent a derailment on the New York City Subway. John becomes convinced that his family has a significant role in these incidents: his wife died in one of the earlier events reported by Lucinda, while Caleb was the one to receive Lucinda's message.
Meanwhile, Caleb begins to hear the same voices that Lucinda did. To prevent the last event, John tracks down Lucinda's daughter Diana and her granddaughter Abby.
They also discover that the final two digits of Lucinda's message are not numbers, but two E's written in reverse. Underneath Lucinda's bed, their meaning is found to be "Everyone Else". During this search, Caleb and Abby, who were left asleep in the car, have an encounter with the beings who are the source of the whispers. The next day, Abby colors in the sun on the engraving, which gives John a revelation.
He rushes to the MIT observatory and learns that a massive solar flare will hit the Earth on the last date indicated by the message. As Diana and Abby prepare to take refuge underground, John finds the door on which Lucinda engraved the final numbers, and identifies them as coordinates of a place where salvation from the solar flare can be found. The disbelieving and terrified Diana loads both Caleb and Abby into her car and flees for the caves. At a gas station, the whispering beings steal her car with Caleb and Abby inside.
Diana pursues them, but is killed in an accident. The beings take Caleb and Abby to Lucinda's mobile home, where John encounters them shortly thereafter. The beings, who act as extraterrestrial angels, are leading children to safety on interstellar arks so that humanity may be rebuilt.
John parts with Caleb before he and Abby are transported away by the beings. The following day, John drives through a chaotic Boston toward his estranged father's house and awaits the end of the world in the embrace of his family. The solar flare vaporizes the city and laps the Earth's surface with its fiery volutes.

The ark, along with others, deposits Caleb and Abby on another world resembling an earthly paradise. The two run through a field toward a large white tree. In , novelist Ryne Douglas Pearson approached producers Todd Black and Jason Blumenthal with his idea for a film, where a time capsule from the s is opened revealing fulfilled prophecies, of which the last one ended with 'EE' - "everyone else". The producers liked the concept and bought his script. Both Rod Lurie and Richard Kelly were attached as directors, but the film eventually went into turnaround.
The project was picked up by the production company Escape Artists, and the script was rewritten by Stiles White and Juliet Snowden. Director Alex Proyas was attached to direct the project in February Proyas and Stuart Hazeldine rewrote the draft for production,  which began on March 25, in Melbourne, Australia. The film is set primarily in the town of Lexington with some scenes set in the nearby cities of Cambridge and Boston. However, it was shot in Australia, where director Proyas resides.
The scenographic rain led to the usage of a new gel for the flames so the fire would not be put out, and semi-permanent make-up to make them last the long shooting hours. Proyas used a Red One 4K digital camera.
He sought to capture a gritty and realistic look to the film, and his approach involved a continuous two-minute scene in which Cage's character sees a plane crash and attempts to rescue passengers. The scene was an arduous task, taking two days to set up and two days to shoot. Proyas explained the goal, "I did that specifically to not let the artifice of visual effects and all the cuts and stuff we can do, get in the way of the emotion of the scene.
The music for the film was written by Marco Beltrami, but also features classical works such as Symphony No. The site's consensus states: " Knowing has some interesting ideas and a couple good scenes, but it's weighted down by its absurd plot and over-seriousness". Scott of The New York Times gave the film a negative review and wrote, "If your intention is to make a brooding, hauntingly allegorical terror-thriller, it's probably not a good sign when spectacles of mass death and intimations of planetary destruction are met with hoots and giggles The draggy, lurching two hours of "Knowing" will make you long for the end of the world, even as you worry that there will not be time for all your questions to be answered.
Writing for The Washington Post , Michael O'Sullivan thought the film was "creepy, at least for the first two-thirds or so, in a moderately satisfying, if predictable, way But the narrative corner into which this movie Well before the film neared its by turns dismal and ditzy conclusion, I found myself knowing—yet hardly able to believe—what was about to happen. So visually arresting are the images that watching a deconstructing airliner or subway train becomes more mesmerising than horrifying. Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times was enthusiastic, rating it four stars out of four and writing, " Knowing is among the best science-fiction films I've seen—frightening, suspenseful, intelligent and, when it needs to be, rather awesome.
Even a few quiet, human moments have something coiling beneath. Pluck this movie, and it vibrates. Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian suggested Knowing was saved by its ending, concluding that "the film sticks to its apocalyptic guns with a spectacular and thoroughly unexpected finish. If you're a Christian fundamentalist who believes that Armageddon is nigh, you'll have a family hug and wake up to be greeted by St Peter at the Pearly Gates. On the other hand, Darwinists will be gratified to see Gaia and her stellar opposite numbers sock it to an unconcerned mankind.

In total, 1. Regarding the film's grounding in science, Director Alex Proyas said at a press conference, "The science was important. I wanted to make the movie credible. So of course we researched as much as we could and tried to give it as much authenticity as we could". Ian O'Neill of Discovery News criticized the film's solar flare plot line, pointing out that the most powerful solar flares could never incinerate Earthly cities. Erin McCarthy of Popular Mechanics calls attention to the film's confusion of numerology , the occult's study of how numbers like dates of birth influence human affairs, with the ability of science to describe the world mathematically to make predictions about things like weather or create technology like cell phones.
Steve Biodrowski of Cinefantastique refers to the film's approach as disappointingly "pseudo-scientific". He writes, "Cage plays an astronomer, and his discussions with a colleague hint that the film may actually grapple with the question of predicting the future, perhaps even offer a plausible theory. Unfortunately, this approach is abandoned as Koestler pursues the disasters, and the film eventually moves into a mystical approach".
Asked about his research for the role, Nicolas Cage stated, "I grew up with a professor, so that was all the research I ever needed". From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Retrieved December 7, There are two kinds of intelligence: one acquired, as a child in school memorises facts and concepts from books and from what the teacher says, collecting information from the traditional sciences as well as from the new sciences. With such intelligence you rise in the world. You get ranked ahead or behind others in regard to your competence in retaining information. You stroll with this intelligence in and out of fields of knowledge, getting always more marks on your preserving tablets.
There is another kind of tablet, one already completed and preserved inside you. A spring overflowing its springbox. A freshness in the center of the chest. This other intelligence does not turn yellow or stagnate. I thought that was odd because my father seemed to be in good health.

So I obeyed and for a year, I worked out and lost weight since it is a very long and strenuous hike. Then about two weeks later I went on a trip. Right after I left, he went into the hospital and died a week later. She understood and gave me the ashes which I did take and scattered them exactly where I was told to. This sometimes comes for me when I am speaking about a spiritual experience or something that is a bit beyond the known reality of this world. It is a confirmation to me that I have touched something that is true and real and spiritual for me. Thank you for reminding me of this very subtle confirmation that I suspect most of us experience:.
Knowing is subjective when it comes to dreams or out-of-body experiences, as we have no idea to the source of their authenticity supernaturally or from the id [internally within the mind]. However mindful meditation has been statistically proven to relax and improve the general health of most practitioners, and this is a real example of knowing becoming truth.. Before getting up every morning I go inward in a kind of non-directed meditation. But then the silence comes and a feeling of access—to what, I am not sure.
I heard words once, or rather felt them, that now open this meditation each day. Then after a bit the silence comes. I am certain now that in that place I am the observer as well as the doer. The duration varies, but I always receive some kind of distinct message that seems to be the directive.
Get ready. Benner and had not yet done so, though I had bought it last spring.casudubyze.cf
But this morning I did, first thing as I was about to make breakfast. Is it knowing that I never felt good with the theory of the soul school and the belief that our whole life is already a fixed plan? In which life which wish has a chance to grow or to unfold, could be open. In quantum physics they talk about probabilities Nothing is totally fixed but there are chances to grow and to unfold.
When You think about a tree, how long it takes to be old enough to blossom and to take fruit. It needs patience and sun and rain and good soil. Maybe it would be a good influence too when you sing love songs to the tree. Masaru Emoto has made an interesting test with rice. After a couple of weeks he checked the rice. The glass with idiot was black and stinking. The other glass consisted good rice wine. You cannot hope for unanimity in a world based on duality. The oneness and wholeness does not exist at the vibration of duality.
It exists the higher and higher you go in vibration of consciousness. And so, think like a human and you find so many differences. In fact, you tend to focus upon those differences. Feel and be at the level of the soul and the differences merge into one tapestry. Do you see how it works? Do not set good efforts laced with good intentions and love aside because not everyone agrees at the human level. Forge on, working from the heart, guided by the soul at the level where love unites all that is.

I am not sure that I wrote this above or if it is a quote. Sometimes I find things in my journal that I have written years ago and am surprised that I knew this then! In fact I did not know them then, but I received them and only come to know them later. Michael… indeed appreciate your sharing… over the years of travelling this path.. Michael, I understand this.

I was trapped in duality; although I knew something great. I was blessed to be a receiver through verse! I have been blessed to have prophetic dreams since high school and the knowing. I receive many downloads daily. I can read, watch, talk to someone and then they come. Knowing is different and I ask daily for protection and discernment.
How do you explain two people who have opposite thoughts and insights and believe that they have seen what is true? How come people see relatives in near death experiences? Science says that the universe, like everything in it is moving toward its death.

Claircognizance…that happens to me quite a bit…just knowing. It comes so fast and unbidden at times, I miss a good deal of the information. Also in dreams which are sometimes prophetic. Thank you again, Eben and Karen, for this opportunity. I look forward to your new book and am grateful to you for leading us by the hand towards a higher level of consciousness. You enable us to see a way forward towards a love which had no bounds — remarkable. This has got to be one of the hardest things for the Western mind to achieve. It is not easy to achieve this kind of knowing — but not impossible.
I can identify with the goose bump phenomena, also words that come in to my mind, expressed differently from my own angles. I might write things down in a totally different fashion from my own inclinations. But, I guess, that is what I signed up for. Many thanks, Love, Margaret.
