Why are we here, and what are we presumed to do about it? What started the Domain, and was it a mistake? Does God exist, and why does he seem so interested in our relations lives? After exploring the phenomenon of TREKKIES, filmmaker Roger Nygard takes on The Nature of Persistence. As he roams the Terra to the outset of each of the world's philosophies, religions, and belief systems, Nygard interviews spiritual leaders, scholars, scientists, artists, pizza chefs, and others who have influenced, inspired, or freaked out humanity.
