in finding themselves.

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.

There is a fundamental chasm in our understanding of ourselves, the universe, and everything. To solve this, Sir Martin takes us on a mind-boggling journey through multiple universes to post-biological life. On the way we learn of the disturbing possibility that we could be the product of someone else experiment.

The idea of the Earth as an integrated self-regulated living organism.

Based on the themes in the book The Global Brain, this moving audio-visual presentation explores the “Gaia hypothesis.” It points to the fragile regulating system that exists between all living and non-living things with the aim of showing people that recognizing the interconnectedness of all things, helps us to become more conscious of our daily actions and ultimately discover a more peaceful way to live with ourselves, each other and the planet. Well ahead of the internet and information and communications technologies’ boom, Peter Russell observed “if Earth is a collective, self-regulating living organism, what then is the potential of humanity as seen through the eyes of the planet?”

You have your way. I have my way.
As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.
