The Music of Life: Biology Beyond Genes Denis Noble. Physiologist Denis Noble explains simply and profoundly why the 'self' is the most hidden, and important, metaphor governing existence. Without it, we believe, there would be no legal system for lack of a culprit, no health system for lack of a patient, and no politics, culture or education. Yet the scientific metaphor of self, inherited from the Enlightenment, comes at a price..

Music Therapy for Health & Wellness ~ All forms of music may have therapeutic effects, though music from one's own culture may be most effective. In Chinese medical theory, the 5 internal organ and meridian systems are believed to have corresponding musical tones, which are used to promote healing. Types of music differ in types of neurological stimulation evoked: classical causes comfort / relaxation but rock may be discomforting. Music may be used with guided imagery to produce altered…

END: CIV examines our culture’s addiction to systematic violence and environmental exploitation, and probes the resulting epidemic of poisoned landscapes and shell-shocked nations. Based in part on Endgame, the best-selling book by Derrick Jensen, END: CIV asks: If your homeland was invaded by aliens who cut down the forests, poisoned the water and air, and contaminated the food supply, would you resist? Backed by Jensen’s narrative, the film calls on us to act as if we truly love this…

"Re-Evolution" Lyrics by The Shamen "If the truth can be told so as to be understood it will be believed" Human history represents such a radical break with the natural systems of biological organisation that preceded it that it must be the response to a kind of attractor or dwell point that lies ahead in the temporal dimension. Persistently western religions have integrated into their theologies the notion of a kind of end of the world. And I think that a lot of psychedelic experimentation…

The Hippie Era- 1969

The counter culture movement of the Hippies fought conventional main stream society. They wore more natural materials, lived together, smoked drank and wrote music to buck the system. Most of the pictures were reproductions of hippie style instead of true. I will also include a picture of "Hair" a Broadway production from the end of the sixties celebrating the Hippie culture.

Restoration of the original right of Mother Earth to her natural constitution Mother Earth’s rights are equivalent to Human Rights. The reactivation of sacred places and sacred sites is vital for the reconstitution of a healthy and balanced life on Earth. In this task, restoring and reactivating the neglected and injured sites of Mother Earth is urgent. It is necessary to carry out this task on a global level in all biocultural regions of the earth and to revitalize the sacred elements of…

Flying board Voyagers 1 and 2 are identical “golden” records, carrying the story of Earth far into deep space. The 12 inch gold-plated copper discs contain greetings in 60 languages, samples of music from different cultures and eras, and natural and man-made sounds from Earth. Currently, both Voyager probes are sailing adrift in the black sea of interplanetary space, having left our solar system years ago
