Domain Pioneer Zappy Zapolin Filming New Documentary - Project With Deepak Chopra Due Out This Summer

Mike "Zappy" Zapolin (who, along with his partners at Internet Real Estate Group, was featured in our September 2005 Cover Story) has been involved in the development and sale of some of the best generic domain names on the Internet, including Music.com, Beer.com, Computer.com, CreditCards.com, Diamond.com, Silver.com and many more. The serial entrepreneur and creator of the Harvard Business School elective "eBusiness" is now expanding into yet another field - documentary filmmaking

Zappy and famous doctor/author/speaker Deepak Chopra have joined forces with producer Kurt Engfehr (who co-produced Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 911) to put together what they promise will be a highly controversial film - The Reality of Truth - a documentary examining perception and reality that is due for release this summer.  

Zapolin and Chopra (who both have key on-screen

roles in the film) maintain that "there is an expanding shift in consciousness taking place right now, and people are looking for a new understanding of life. The "film not only identifies the perception problem plaguing society today, but also analyzes specific techniques to break though to a new reality—one that is more peaceful, tolerant and, when looked at properly, amusing."

Zapolin said, “Transcendence is the key to taking off the filters that separate and blind us, so that we can see things as they actually exist. There are many techniques people use to transcend—meditation, prayer, dance, music, even psychedelics—and for this film we set out to explore the effectiveness of these different techniques.”

The film features top religious gurus, thought leaders and scientists, who discuss the prevailing understanding of reality and the methods they invoke to transcend into an "alternate reality." The documentary crew has already filmed interviews in many locations including Maui where they spoke with legendary spiritual leader Ram Dass, who was with Timothy Leary during his infamous Harvard experiments. 

They also filmed a panel discussion with Dr. John Hagelin, PhD and Fred Travis, faculty members of the Maharishi University of Management, and Dr. Norman Rosenthal, author of New York Times Bestseller Transcendence. The panel was held in Fairfield, Iowa, where thousands of people in the transcendental meditation community meditate together each day. You can watch a trailer for The Reality of Truth on the official documentary website and also follow the project's progress on the film's Facebook page
