Those curious about consciousness and the nature of existence are likely to delight in Haramein's mathematically intricate yet spiritually open approach to cosmic questions. The documentary looks to be an audio visual spectacle of the highest order if the trailer is to be any indication of what's to come. Touching on deep and metaphysical themes, this movie looks to be mind expanding to say the very least. 

While the landscape of crowdfunding has been developing for some time, this movie, funded through Indiegogo, raised a staggering amount of money making it the highest crowdfunded spirituality-focused movie of all-time. It is one of the highest documentaries of any genre to be successfully crowdfunded.

Launched by Malcom Carter of Vancouver, Canada, the crowdfunding project has been funded since January 26, 2015.
