Is There Life after Death? (2017)

Is There Life after Death? (2017)

Does some aspect of our personality survive bodily death? Long a philosophical and theological question, in the 20th century this became the subject of scientific research. Fifty years ago, in 1967, Ian Stevenson, then chair of UVA's Department of Psychiatry, created a research unit—now named the Division of Perceptual Studies—to study what, if anything, of the human personality survives after death. Dr. Stevenson's own research investigated hundreds of accounts of young children who claimed to recall past lives. In this Medical Center Hour, faculty from the Division of Perceptual Studies highlight the unit's work since its founding, including studies of purported past lives, near-death experiences, and mind-brain interactions in phenomena such as deep meditation, veridical out-of-body experiences, deathbed visions, apparent communication from deceased persons, altered states of consciousness, and terminal lucidity in persons with irreversible brain damage. As the division enters its second half-century, what are its research priorities and partnerships?

In The Shadow Of Feeling (2017)

In The Shadow Of Feeling (2017)

At age 14, a young Canadian boy named “Johnathan” decided to murder his friend and fellow schoolmate during a lunchtime recess. He later turned himself in, was found guilty of first degree murder, and is now serving a life sentence in a medium security prison. While on trial, “Johnathan” was labeled as a psychopath, a person with no ability to feel remorse or empathy for his actions. Psychopaths have a rich history in the media of being portrayed as mastermind serial killers and mass murderers. The real truth behind these individuals is much more frightening and serious than most people imagine. Psychopaths account for approximately 3% of society, and many of that percentage has never and will never see the inside of a prison cell. Psychopathic individuals hold many important posts in society such as business, corporate, politics and military. Although many of them will never commit actual crimes, they still leave an unmistakable mark on the people around them and a wake of broken promises and broken hearts everywhere they go. This film explores the factors that create psychopaths in society and the ways to identify these individuals. Factors such as genetics, parenting, and consumerism play vital roles in determining the interpersonal bonds that children form in the earliest years of life. Through interviews with professionals, doctors, and even a psychopath himself, the public can gain better knowledge of what causes children to develop into adult psychopaths and hopefully decide to stem these causes at their roots.

How the Rich Get Richer (2017)

How the Rich Get Richer (2017)

Exploding real estate prices, zero interest rate and a rising stock market – the rich are getting richer. What danger lies in wait for average citizens? For years, the world’s central banks have been pursuing a policy of cheap money. The first and foremost is the ECB (European Central Bank), which buys bad stocks and bonds to save banks, tries to fuel economic growth and props up states that are in debt. But what relieves state budgets to the tune of hundreds of billions annoys savers: interest rates are close to zero. The fiscal policies of the central banks are causing an uncontrolled global deluge of money. Experts are warning of new bubbles. In real estate, for example: it’s not just in German cities that prices are shooting up. In London, a one-bed apartment can easily cost more than a million Euro. More and more money is moving away from the real economy and into the speculative field. Highly complex financial bets are taking place in the global casino - gambling without checks and balances. The winners are set from the start: in Germany and around the world, the rich just get richer. Professor Max Otte says: "This flood of money has caused a dangerous redistribution. Those who have, get more." But with low interest rates, any money in savings accounts just melts away. Those with debts can be happy. But big companies that want to swallow up others are also happy: they can borrow cheap money for their acquisitions. Coupled with the liberalization of the financial markets, money deals have become detached from the real economy. But it’s not just the banks that need a constant source of new, cheap money today. So do states. They need it to keep a grip on their mountains of debt. It’s a kind of snowball system. What happens to our money? Is a new crisis looming? The film 'The Money Deluge' casts a new and surprising light on our money in these times of zero interest rates.
