"How strange is the lot of us mortals! Each of us is here for a brief sojourn; for what purpose he knows not, though he sometimes thinks he senses it.

But without deeper reflection one knows from daily life that one exists for other people -- first of all for those upon whose smiles and well-being our own happiness is wholly dependent, and then for the many, unknown to us, to whose destinies we are bound by the ties of sympathy. A hundred times every day I remind myself that my inner and outer life are based on the labors of other men, living and dead, and that I must exert myself in order to give in the same measure as I have received and am still receiving...

"I have never looked upon ease and happiness as ends in themselves -- this critical basis I call the ideal of a pigsty. The ideals that have lighted my way, and time after time have given me new courage to face life cheerfully, have been Kindness, Beauty, and Truth. "My political ideal is democracy.

Imagine a World of Truth & Knowledge. OWNED & OPERATED is a mosaic of the world through the lens of the internet. Showing our lives as consumers, under the thumbs of privileged individuals and their methods of control. But the world is awakening, and the experience is something outside the normal rules of social interaction, causing excitement in those who are not served by the current system… and fear in those who are pampered by it. “Imagine a world full of truth and knowledge, ignored in favor of superficial pleasures…” This documentary by Crackin Films attempts to present these events using the video, audio and written content uploaded to the internet by the collective human consciousness comprised of every individual participant. Oh yes, change is coming… and it will be more dramatic than anybody can imagine. About Crackin Films It is time for us to recognize the antiquated ideas about social organization that we’ve all become entirely too used to… and evolve beyond them. 1Czbe1ty2UQNHYxvpJqfJEdeaL2cYmzc5T.

Challenging Conventional Wisdom : wisdom talk. By: Alyson Wyers - Published: Oct 29, 2013 • References: In his wisdom talk, Simon Cohen challenges conventional views on wisdom and discusses what it means to leave a legacy of hope, love and ideas.

He shares his story of chasing wisdom according to traditional methods and what he learned in the process. Wisdom is not knowledge, the avoidance of pain or gained through world travel. Cohen did not gain wisdom through his university studies, a corporate career, or travelling around the globe to places like India to learn from wise leaders like the Dalai Llama. He asserts that wise people are willing to admit when they do not know something. They also are willing to be vulnerable and understand that pain is an inevitable part of life.

Wise people take their time and go slow. Global Tolerance Organization - Home. La Chronique de Francis Pisani : comment préserver la part de hasard sur nos itinéraires numériques ?

Computer Graphics Group Selects NASA Earth Visuals for Showcase. Computer Graphics Group Selects NASA Earth Visuals for Showcase An annual conference that presents and publishes the best in computer graphics and technical research chose a NASA excerpt from the presentation, "Dynamic Earth: Exploring Earth's Climate Engine," as one of its select entries of 2012.

The computer visualization is titled "Coronal Mass Ejection and Ocean/Wind Circulation. " It is also published today (June 19) as the 100th story for the award-winning NASA Viz iPad application. The Association for Computer Machinery's Special Interest Group on Computer Graphics and Interactive Techniques is known as SIGGRAPH and is widely considered the most prestigious forum of its kind.

"Major Hollywood studios submit pieces, so there is a high standard," says Joshua Grow, SIGGRAPH Computer Animation Festival Chair, Los Angeles. "Clearly NASA has exceeded that standard with their submission. " This image slideshow includes visualizations from the "Dynamic Earth" excerpt. Earth Hour. The Strangest, Most Haunting Images of Saturn You'll Ever See - Rebecca J. Rosen. Our mighty spacecraft has traveled to Saturn's dark side, and captured the majestic planet backlit by our star the sun.

Just when you thought everything was wrong with the world, NASA has gone and released something truly stunning to set your mind at ease: Saturn, as viewed from its dark side with the sun's light filtering through the planet's rings. The picture, taken on October 17th, is composed of 60 images taken by the Cassini spacecraft in lightwaves ranging from violet to near infrared. "Of all the many glorious images we have received from Saturn, none are more strikingly unusual than those taken from Saturn's shadow," aid Carolyn Porco, Cassini's imaging team lead.

An earlier backlit image of Saturn taken by Cassini in 2006 shows something pretty special: Earth -- a pale blue dot seen in the upper-left quandrant in the fainter reaches of Saturn's rings.

Matter is Belief. The Holographic Universe: Is Reality As We Know It Just One Big Hologram? I have had this thought many times on my search for truth.. What if our reality is actually a hologram? Quantum physics shows us that an atom is made up of mostly empty space.. How could something that is made up of empty space possibly create the reality we see around us? The theory that reality, as we consciously experience it, is not real, goes back to ancient indigenous people who believed we exist in a dream or illusion. The universe is a consciousness hologram. In media we find films, television shows, books, and games, based on the concept of reality as a hologram. The Following article is by Paul Lenda, Guest, Waking Times We grow up thinking and believing that the world and reality in which we exist in is something tangible and physical and is just as is perceived.

The evidence for a holographic reality is becoming quite plentiful; too much to be disregarded. Within a hologram, the whole is within the part. Consciousness is not a product of physical reality.

Just imagine what could become possible if an entire city had seen just one of the documentaries above. Just imagine what would be possible if everyone in the country was aware of how unhealthy the mainstream media was for our future and started turning to independent sources in droves.

Creating a better world really does start with an informed citizenry, and there's lots of subject matter to cover. From all the documentaries above, it's evident that our society needs a new story to belong to. The old story of empire and dominion over the earth has to be looked at in the full light of day - all of our ambient cultural stories and values that we take for granted and which remain invisible must become visible. But most of all, we need to see the promise of the alternatives - we need to be able to imagine new exciting ways that people could live, better than anything that the old paradigm could ever dream of providing.

Project 562: Changing The Way We See Native America (Phase2) by Matika Wilbur. Last December, I sold everything in my Seattle apartment, packed a few essentials into my war pony, and hit the open road. Since then, I’ve been embarking on an epic adventure: Project 562. For the past year I have been fulfilling the project’s goal of photographing citizens of each federally recognized tribe in the United States (there are now 566). Most of the time, I’ve been invited to geographically remote reservations to take portraits and hear stories from a myriad of tribes, while at other times I've photographed members of the 70 percent of Native Americans living in urban settings.

My hope, is that when the project is complete, it will serve to educate the nation and shift the collective consciousness toward recognizing our own indigenous communities. Imagine walking through an exhibit and realizing the complex variety of contemporary Native America. Project 562 is making all this happen.
