The Biological Advantage of Awe > Jason Silva

| | | | |

 

This video was created by @JasonSilva and shot and edited with my friends at Bravo Media, and is non-commercial and for educational and inspirational purposes only. Full credits and clip attributions can be found below. This video was inspired by three big ideas:
1) The ideas of psychologist Nicholas Humphrey who has written of "THE BIOLOGICAL ADVANTAGE OF BEING AWESTRUCK". Basically, our ability to awe was biologically selected for by evolution because it imbues our lives with sense of cosmic significance that has resulted in a species that works harder not just to survive but to flourish and thrive...
"Humphrey refers to consciousness as a magic show that you stage for yourself inside your head, which lights up the world and makes you feel special and transcendent... this magical theater provides a reason to live, a love of occupying the present moment, and a desire to sustain it into the future, that over time has proved stronger than anything else, and accounts for humanity’s swift and triumphant success--
Humphrey says “being enchanted by the magic of experience, rather than being just an aid to survival, provides an essential incentive to survive.”
"We relish just being here. We feel “the yen to confirm and renew, in small ways or large, our own occupancy of the present moment, to go deeper, to extend it, to revel in being there, and when we have the skill, to celebrate it in words..”
Our desire to understand brings exquisite pleasure... and feeds our exploratory voyage, our scientific inquiry, our technological development, and even our poetic self-regard..

2) The Stanford study that found that AWE is clinically good for you, expanding perception of time, increasing compassion and empathy and promoting well being:

3) Ross Andersen's rapturous meditation on the ontological awakening of our psyches provided by the Hubble Space Telescope: "At first glancing the Deep FIELD “one might mistake it for gemstones scattered across black velvet, but a closer look reveals that each smudge of light, 2,600 in all, is a galaxy dense with billions of star-fired worlds, pinwheeling in deep time. … To that point, astronomy had imaged objects only four billion light years away, and poorly at that. Here a telescope reached 11 and a half billion light years into space and delivered an image legible to the layman: an unprecedented expansion of human vision."

http://www.thejuicemedia.com Juice Rap News - Episode 17: The War on Terra. It's 2013 and the world did not end by meteorite or by Mayan calendar. But fear not: we might just be able to get the job done ourselves. Join Robert Foster as he sets out to discover where Civilisation™ is making the fastest progress towards annihilation. In this edition of the Civilisation Report, Robert learns about Australia and Canada - two oft-neglected pioneers of peace, progress and prosperity - in conversation with our antipodean colonial correspondent Ken Oathcarn and his Canuck counterpart, Fagin Heighbard. Dear viewers, consider this a fair warning that in terms of language and affront to the dominant culture this could get fucking messy.

SACRED ECONOMICS > Charles Eisenstein

"Sacred Economics" with Charles Eisenstein

The film, "Sacred Economics" traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system necessitates an endless growth that has destroyed community and contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity. Today, these trends have reached their extreme - but in the wake of the recent financial collapse, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.

Statement by the Director, Ian MacKenzie:

"After reading Charles Eisenstein's book Sacred Economics, which speaks eloquently about the return of the 'gift economy', I felt compelled to gift back. The best way I knew how was to use my filmmaking skills to share Charles' work, and spread it to communities around the globe.  His vision of "the more beautiful world our hearts tell us is possible" is the salve that so many of us need at this time, in the age of great transition. My hope is this film catalyzes those who work with passion and dedication to live this world right now."

RAP NEWS 9 - The Economy w. Ron Paul & Peter Joseph

|
RAP NEWS episode 9. 2011 hits harder than a pre-apocalyptic hangover as "the economy" threatens to annihilate our stock-piles of imaginary, inflated wealth, spawning a battle of epic proportions as insurgent grassroots forces move in to #OccupywallStreet and coalitions of indignados hold their ground in Athens, Madrid and Tel Aviv; facing up to the riotgear, batons and tazers that stand between them and a more equal redistribution of the proverbial pie. ...But enough action and excitement! It's time for some heroic armchair philosophy: Join your affable host, Robert Foster as he attempts to shine some light on this mysterious creature, "the economy". Is this the failure of capitalism that we are witnessing, or its triumph? Is it the end of the end of history, or yet another crazy chapter in the whimsical journey of the human experiment?

The Tao of Politics > Miriam Lyons @ TEDxCANBERRA

Miriam Lyons: The Tao of Politics > ABC Big Ideas
18 Apr 2011, 11:00


It's Miriam Lyons' job to envision new ways for society to imagine itself. In her speech at TEDx Canberra 2010, Lyons asks why society and human nature are out of balance? Her search for an answer takes on the ambitious task of looking at the current state of our society, the inherent contradictions of our nature, and what we can do about living better lives in the future.

"I think we are getting closer to an Einstein moment in our understanding of human nature", she muses. "We've been through a phase in which the economics of self-interest has dominated our worldview.

"Our bakers and butchers may be bastards, but that doesn't matter if they still swap bread for dough. Greed was good, society didn't exist. Everywhere we looked we looked for selfish behaviour, and we found a whole global financial crisis full of it.

"We are now at a point where we're rediscovering our caring, sharing, interconnected side - and we're also learning more about how the Madoffs and the Mother Theresas of the world are made."

Miriam Lyons is Executive Director of the progressive think-tank, The Centre for Policy Development.
