Earth Talk: Science and Spiritual Practices Lecture by Dr Rupert Sheldrake   In this lecture at Schumacher College, Rupert Sheldrake shows how the “scientific worldview” is moribund; the sciences are being constricted by assumptions that have hardened into dogmas. But science itself is now transcending the materialist philosophy, and pointing toward a new sense of a living world. The cosmos is no longer like a machine running down; it is more like a developing organism with an inherent memory, and so is our planet, Gaia. These new paradigm shifts in the sciences shed a new light on spiritual practices like pilgrimage, [More]

This large size leptocephalus is believed to be a species of Muraenidae (moray eels), and probably the larva of a long thin ribbon eel, which is metamorphosing, not feeding, and is entering shallow water to finish it’s metamorphosis into a young eel. (Larva identified by Michael J. Miller) Leptocephali are the unusual transparent larvae of eels and their close relatives. Because they are transparent they are so hard to spot and are hardly ever sighted. Filmed by Barry Haythorne and Rob Rutgers, HRF U/W Production.
The belief the genes control our biology and control our lives is something that many of us have bought into but simply isn’t true. Bruce Lipton demonstrates that genes do not control life as many of us have bought into believing. Life is actually controlled by perceptions. “Cells are what you are made out of. When you think of yourself as a singular entity that’s a great mistake, because the truth is that the living things that make you up are the cells. You represent the communal action of 50 trillion individual entities that make you up. So when you see [More]
Dr. Bruce Lipton rocked the scientific community with a groundbreaking discoveries shedding new light on what actually controls biology. Mr. Lipton was a Cellular Biologist at the University of Wisconsin cloning human muscle cells; taking cells out of people and putting them in a petri culture dish and studying individual cells in an effort to understand what was controlling their fate; what was making this dystopic or pathological, what was making them normal in the control process. In this research he started to come to an understanding that greatly differed from his whole scientific foundation that we were controlled by genes. In the [More]
