To be sure, there are some conscious creation themes explored in the film, most notably those related to facing fears, examining unexplored probabilities, understanding the nature of the reality we experience, embracing change by letting go and appreciating the inherent connectedness of all things. However, the passing and often-haphazard treatment they receive reminds viewers of just how many other pictures are out there that handle these subjects much more deftly and substantively.
Political considerations aside, as conscious creation practitioners know, contradiction is one of three factors (along with fear and/or doubt) that prevents the materialization process from happening. It involves sending mixed signals to our divine collaborator, which is unable to carry out its part of the process due to the conflicting nature of its instructions. It’s like asking for the manifestation of something that’s simultaneously all red and all green, a physical impossibility in our reality given the belief structure upon which our existence is based.
As we become increasingly aware of the idea that we create our own reality, it helps to have movies like “Source Code” available to remind us of that. It effectively illustrates our range of options and the means by which we go about accessing the possibilities. And, in the end, the results we get from that process just might surprise us.
