Athene's Theory of Everything


The Original Soundtrack (download & streaming) / Full SoundCloud Track

(includes music that didn't make it into the film)

'God is in The Neurons' is the first chapter of the 'Athene's Theory of Everything' documentary and covers the research that was done by Chiren Boumaaza, (aka 'Athene',) in the year 2010 -- which was why he disappeared from his usual viral YouTube series for most of that year.  Known mainly for his record-setting World of Warcraft and online poker stunts and for the extravagance he portrays in his videos, Boumaaza has been seen as a genius by some, a 'troll' by others, but as an incredibly capable gamer and entertainer by most.


Developments in neuroscience and sociology from the past decades have shed light on many aspects of human psychology that are only now beginning to be discussed in the fields of 'self-help' and self-development.  While there is a lot of literature on the subject from authors that range from popular lifecoaches such as Tony Robbins to spiritual teachers like Eckhart Tolle, Chiren saw a huge lack in material that takes a purely scientific approach. 'God is in The Neurons' makes important correlations about mirror neurons, neuroplasticity, memory, social dynamics, evolution, altruism and identity.

Note that the high-definition and iPhone versions of this video that we had previously linked here as available on MegaUpload are no longer available at this time.  You can, however, still download high-definition and mp4 versions of our videos from YouTube with a good video download program, such as the one produced by Freemake

I have watched this video a couple of times now and there are a lot of questions / skepticisms I may have about specific concepts mentioned, but of one thing I am certain:


The video editing, scripting, and storytelling exceed the quality of most of the "Science" shows on American television today.  I am completely blown away by the visual design and overal creative direction of the documentary.  Thank you for creating it an sharing it openly, and thank you for having the courage to visualize/verbalize your ideas in such an elaborate way.

Just one question. If your theory is true then Memory continues after death...ever expanding. how do you explain that, even after the brain stops working?

Thanks for taking the time to answer.

Is there a transcript available?

Are there any chance to get this in another language, swedish? ^^ There are many difficult and complicated words which is used in the video

This is the second time I've watched this film. And I'm sure more will follow.
Comment by Pt0Kaze13 on April 25, 2011 at 11:20pm
i thought it was total bullcrap when i watched it the first time, and im sure many of you thought the same. Now try watch it a couple more times
Comment by Lev on April 26, 2011 at 6:20pm

amazing, all this info popped into my head before I watched this and i wrote a lot on all the discussed themes in the film. Then I watched the movie... in a awh, I didn't have to write as much coz its all here nice and neat..this is incredible, just amazing


Also after coming to a certain level of awareness, how do we deal with our world's current economy on a collective scale? How do we manage resources and lead sustainable lives, diminish export and import production etc..

Is there another location I can download the 720p version from, now that MegaUpload is shut-down? I looked for torrents but none are being seeded. I have a 60Mb connection at home and I would be more than happy to start seeding a new torrent if I could get the original file.

Comment by Pier S.F. on January 28, 2012 at 11:33am

This documentary was well-made, and it was inspiring to me when I watched it. Though, mixing the expectations of a theory of everything in the form of science and what is known in science to inspire self-development was not the best move, imho.

Fantastic documentary. 'Athene' has shown a level of ingenuity in linking physics and neuroscience to philosopy. I found the video offered an incredibly fresh perspective on the greatest mystery of mankind - conciousness. I also feel quite strongly that a number of people have watched the video with little background knowledge, and therefore were unable to appreciate the ideas fully. Consequently they called it 'crap' or 'unoriginal'. When I first watched it my own background knowledge was fairly limited, and I realised my grasp of the theory was incomplete as a result. A year on, with a ton of reading in the field of philosophy/physics I found the results were incredible. You can really appreciate the scope that Athene is going for here, it's huge. Hope you read this buddy, because I really appreciate you sharing this.

I would really like to talk with Athene and share with him a few, literal "Out of Body" experiences that I have had relating to the 1) "ZPF of all energy sources within Singularity", 2) the "Super String Theory within Duality", and 3) the "Cosmic CAUSE--> Effect Nature of Consciousness," and most fascinating of all, 4) “The Unified Field Algorithm (for me it’s not a theory anymore) of the Universal Meta Mind” the Master’s Meta Matrix.

I know that sounds like I am a real "wacked out" sort of guy, however in objective defense of my subjective self-esteem, I have served as an electrical operator on a nuclear sub, have been a CPA and held the SEC's Series 7 & 63, and have served in executive positions managing over $2b in portfolio assets.

What happened to "me" still to this day seems unbelievable but real.  Bottom line ... How can I communicate directly with Athene?

I saw the video and saw it again and again and again. The best of the kind ! After many years of transcendental meditation practice, I know by experience that the most of the things presented, especially in the first part "God is in The Neurons" , is true ! 

I feel like paying tribute to Athene and to everybody else who contributed to this, for their serious effort to share with us all, this slendid, thorough, elegant knowledge.

Guys, you contribute seriously to the world evolution. You initiate new neural connections in the world's neural network. You accelerate things for the unfolding of the full potential of world's brains, in plain synchronicity, giving the maximum results with the minimum effort, all in harmony for every manifested life form. You are another step to heaven.

The wealth of information in this video is outstanding. It is one of the most comprehensive and profound documentary I have seen. The animations are superbly done. Thanks for sharing this.
Comment by Matheus on January 26, 2013 at 2:18am

what about god is neurons and/or god is the universe ? don't we see ? on each of most distant edges; unlimited high or low scale it's about the same,,,,flow of energy, by biologic, chemical , electricity , all are pathwyas, all of them are  freeways the energy has found her way to flow around everywhere...I liked the video pretty much, and it puts together many things I had in mind since some time ago,,,like when I was born,,,really nice job in here!! Congrats!

Comment by Andreas Valentin Pedersen on July 29, 2013 at 11:59am

I have, as many others here have stated as well, watched this video multiple times - partly due to forgetting parts of the abundant chunk of knowledge being released at me, and partly to ensure a better understanding of some of the more complex material in the video.

I want to give you my bona fide gratitude for creating this movie - and as I have already read other comments state: it is not only the quality of the contend, but also the fashion it is presented in, which are of the utmost quality.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

Sincerely, AVP
