His non-commercial series of short videos, aptly named 'shots of philosophical espresso', explore the co-evolution of humans and technology and have gone viral with over 2 million views and "play like movie trailers for ideas," according to The Atlantic.

Metaphysics Colleges, Metaphysical University, Spiritual Enlightenment 7 Extraordinary Books You Need to Read to Become Ecoliterate Complex networks and their unpredictable nature are rapidly transforming the world around us. The challenge is to learn to live with life, because we are embedded in it. We are systems, nested within systems, nested within systems. Luckily, great minds have seen this ‘crisis of perception’ coming and they have shared their thoughts with us. Thoughts that are inspiring, sometimes shaking the ground beneath our feet and sometimes giving us hope-filled vistas on the future. Thoughts that connect the dots and show us an endlessly complex system, called life, continuously emerging in ever more complex forms. What is Ecoliteracy? An ecoliterate is someone who has learned (to some degree, in some way) that human life is embedded within larger ecosystems that provide the conditions for it to develop. The (aspiring) ecoliterate could, in my opinion, come a long way in creating his own understanding of living systems, by reading these 7 classic books. 1. 2. A brilliant and important book. 3. 4.

Rupert Sheldrake at EU 2013—"Science Set Free" (Parts 1 & 2) Part 1 of a talk by Rupert Sheldrake at the conference ELECTRIC UNIVERSE 2013: The Tipping Point, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Many scientists like to think that science already understands the ways of the natural world. The fundamental questions are answered, leaving only the details to be filled in. The impressive achievements of science seemed to support this confident attitude. But recent research has revealed unexpected problems at the heart of physics, cosmology, biology, medicine and psychology.

Rupert Sheldrake Online - Homepage Peter Sloterdijk in English [updated July 2013] | Te Ipu Pakore: The Broken Vessel Peter Sloterdijk (b.1947) is the coming man in philosophical anthropology (or rather, on the comeback after his first brush with fame in the 80s) — though his work is translated more often in French and Spanish than in English. His Sisyphean Spheres trilogy (1998, 1999, 2004), a decade in the making and as yet untranslated in English, seems to have prevented his work becoming more broadly known in the Anglo world.

Philosophy of the Acrobat: On Peter Sloterdijk | 5 Mind-Blowing Books That Are Worth The Struggle To Read Books are obstacle courses for the mind. By confronting us with paradigm shifting ideas they challenge us to stretch our capacity for understanding. And when we succeed, they will open up a world which we couldn’t see before. And then, in this unfamiliar world, we find ourselves having new thoughts and breaking new rules, using new magic and exploring new possibilities. And finally we must come to the conclusion, when we absorb ideas too big for our former selves, we change and we grow and burst like a butterfly out of our old shells that don’t serve us no more. Inhale the essence of these books and feel yourself brimming with vitality! You Must Change Your Life – Peter Sloterdijk In this dazzling display of historic inquiry Sloterdijk delves deep into our human tendency to experience ‘vertical tension’ – the call to outgrow oneself and leave behind our old deficient selves.
