Abstract:

We live in the most scientifically and technologically advanced time in all of history, yet we are more superstitious than ever. Athletes, architects, actors, fishermen, politicians and even scientists can be captive to magical beliefs, convinced that their success depends upon carrying out rituals. New studies are shedding light on why we are superstitious: because it works. Psychologists argue that superstition helps us deal with life's uncertainties, and scientists say it's hard-wired into our brains. Whether we view superstition as a waste of time or embrace it as a positive force, one thing seems clear: to believe in superstition does not make you stupid, ignorant or crazy. It makes you human. This film explores the world of superstitions, learning about their origins, and discovering what they tell us about ourselves.
