I just watched House of Numbers last evening in Golden, CO. It was much more than I expected, based on what my friends had told me, and it resonated with me in many ways.

I facilitate The Work of Byron Katie, which is a simple yet powerful process of self-inquiry, in pursuit of the truth, which is used to question any (stressful) belief. Watching your film, was similar to questioning the belief "HIV / AIDS is real." The questions that I ask are:

The Work of Byron Katie (official site:
1. Is it true?
2. Can you absolutely know it's true?
3. How do you react when you believe that thought?
4. Who would you be without that thought?

I immediately went home and questioned the beliefs, "HIV / AIDS is real" and "HIV / AIDS is not real" and I learned so much!

I was planning to be trained as an HIV tester in Boulder, CO later this month, and I honestly cannot imagine doing that now, so I am going to decline the volunteer position. I cannot honestly tell someone "You are positive" as a result of watching your film.

I'm going to encourage all my friends, and the organization that I was going to test for, to watch your film. Is there any way to purchase a DVD of the film?

Thank you so much for all your efforts in putting this film together, and for sharing it with the public. I look forward to the conversations that will arise as a result of it!
