I am looking forward to seeing this movie. The trailer was just sent to me by a reader.

I never met the man but John Templeton is widely regarded as not only a master capitalist, but a man who lived to make the world a better place. I know that’s a strong statement, but I read a fair amount about him when I was just starting out as a stock broker and so I think it’s fair to say.

He put much effort into funding research into the place where spiritual and the sublime intersect with hard science. For me, this is a good use of serious wealth. My sense is that he lived for something much bigger than most humans do.

Anyway, the trailer.
