Voices from Six Continents.

The Economics of Happiness features a calling for systemic economic change. The documentary describes a world moving simultaneously in two opposing directions. While government and big business continue to promote globalization and the consolidation of corporate power, people around the world are resisting those policies and working to forge a very different future. Communities are coming together to re-build more human scale, ecological economies based on a new paradigm: an economics of localization.

The Universe as a place of mystery and wonder.

Lord Martin Rees is an astrophysicist who paints a fascinating picture of how we might be changed by what we do not yet know. These programs focus on: Was there a beginning? Whether we are alone? What’s the future of the cosmos? What is the nature of reality? With each advance, new questions come into sharper focus. The key issue is what we still don’t know.

In this episode Sir Martin explores the possibility that life exists on planets beyond our own. He unveils an unsettling scientific debate that has startling consequences for us Earthlings.

The Universe as a place of mystery and wonder.

Lord Martin Rees is an astrophysicist who paints a fascinating picture of how we might be changed by what we do not yet know. These programs focus on: Was there a beginning? Whether we are alone? What’s the future of the cosmos? What is the nature of reality? With each advance, new questions come into sharper focus. The key issue is what we still don’t know.

Astronomer Royal Martin Rees turns his attention to the structure of the universe, examining the perceived building blocks of life – atoms. However, he suggests they only actually account for five per cent of the mass of the universe, prompting a discussion with leading luminaries in the field, such as Professor Steven Weinberg and Professor Max Tegmark, about what makes up the remainder, often referred to as dark matter.

Expand your perceptions.

Each moment, events take place that the human eye cannot perceive because these occurrences are too small, too large, too fast, too slow or beyond the spectrum of visible light. This 1979 National Geographic special classic video shows us that ‘hidden’ world – the sight of water crystallizing into ice, a single atom’s movement within solid matter, a bullet speeding towards its target. Different sizes, different spectrum, and even different rates of speed can illuminate the underlying processes that are beyond the limits of our eyes and will forever alter your understanding and perception of the world.

Cymatics Soundscapes: Bringing Matter to Life with Sound (1986)

Country: Switzerland
Language: English / German

The study of visible sound and vibration.

The study of wave phenomena and vibration was pioneered by the Swiss physician and Renaissance man Hans Jenny. Inspired by Rudolf Steiner, Dr. Jenny’s penetrating observations of distinct types of patterns in nature led to these dramatic experiments animating inert substances with audible sound. The video is the first of two films made by Hans Jenny around 1970, which comprise this program entitled Cymatics. A half-hour of visually astounding images portray how unseen forces can shape, transform and destroy the seemingly solid structures that we see all about us. The stunning array of experiments seen in these two films are actual physical phenomena evolving before our eyes – as audible sound excites various liquids, powders, pastes and iron filings into processes which mimic atomic, geologic, biological, solar and even galactic shapes and movements.

Caution: No computer-generated images appear in these films. Viewing this remarkable scientific artistry can profoundly alter the way you view your world!
