More people voted for Hillary Clinton than Donald Trump. Over One Hundred Million Voters Did Not Vote. 25% of the eligible voters elected DT. On one dimension, this outcome was about those aligned consciously and subconsciously with Nurture, Equality and Systemic Truth vs those deeply programmed subconsciously by community, culture and media against NETS — toward false hopes and false prophets.

On another dimension, the NETS majority lost the election because of a massive endemic failure to communicate. The excellent movie we recommend you see after the election trauma, Arrival, along with powerful reminders of the harm DT and his disciples can wreak,   Moonlight, and Loving, tells the story of how alien beings, yes, we are all alien to each other, struggle to communicate and find our way. We call ourselves human beings but we can easily think of ourselves as alien beings. The majesty of the movie Arrival is that is informs us about the essence of meaningful life, and introduces the concept of DYNAMIC SEMIOTICS, a more advanced language capable of enabling aliens such as those of us from inner space and those nerdy heptopods from outer space to communicate more wholly, more systemically, more deeply about what matters. If US and THEM cannot communicate, we will forever remain US vs THEM, and we all lose. That is why we are leading the world toward a better multimedia language to bridge the massive gap between LEARNING THE MEANING OF LIFE, NETS, and the ANCIENT ALIEN LIZARD BRAIN deeply embedded within us.

We all have experienced movies that have influenced us, moved us, changed us, made us view ourselves or our world differently. Here is our initial list of movies we would want everyone in the world to experience before they reach the age of 18 – before they irrevocably launch themselves into a trajectory for the rest of their lives. Movies are Media Enabled Life (:MEL:). Video games are Computer Aided Life (:CAL:).

Our criteria is that the movie has to engage the viewer, has to express itself with meanings that deviate from inherited patterns of superficial understanding, and has to possess universal transformational qualities aligned with NETS.


Enabling oneself to reach our potential
Enabling others to reach their potential
Enabling life on earth to reach its potential


Experiencing & Understanding Inclusiveness
Experiencing & Understanding Difference
Experiencing & Understanding Human Relationships & Human Valuing


Experiencing & Understanding Life on Earth
Experiencing & Understanding Science and Knowledge
Experiencing & Understanding Systems & Complexity

Here is our initial movie list – in no particular order. Please share your thoughts on Media Enabled Life with all of us. Can movies move us to action?

We know this list is US-centric and Hollywood centric. Identify mainstream and independent movies throughout the world with the power to move us toward NETS.

One thought on “Some NETS Movies We Recommend For The Hillary Majority

  1. Thanks Dan. We have added V for Vendetta, Pay it Forward, Thrive and The Story of Stuff. We think years of curriculum can be organized around the shared experiences of “movies” and “rich media”.
