A "Sinesthesic" Concept:
"THE SWEET DAWN OF THE ECOLOGICAL AGE"
(Like my beloved Song "Sweet Dream" of Ian Anderson/Jethro Tull in the Album "Living in the Past").

Still waiting for my laptop, lol, but busy nontheless.
I will check all the above later, but am happy, that you are well and around!
Btw., the new book from our big master (a funny one, as it turns out to be) Cytowic, who reinvented that Syn-theme some years ago, is constantly sold out quickly, wherever it shows up. A good sign alltogether! I am in direct talk with him and the other mates in this adventure. It also turns out, that he understands German very well, not surprising though, he visited our german bunch in Hannover some time ago.
Some now discover smell/scent and music, quite interesting! Its a pity, that at present I cannot follow, as I would like to (laptop!!!). . . :-]

Thank you for posting this link. I didn?t watch the whole Zeitgeist video, though. Anyhow, It?s a very interesting concept, but I feel, it is a little too dogmatic, telling us what the only ?truth? on earth is. You can?t displace dogmatic systems with another dogmatic system, hereby calling the latter the only evident truth and everything else useless and commutable. May be some kind of ?upgrading? could be useful, I mean more spiritualism in religions or the like and not being so convinced of having the only possible way. I think there are many ways of changing consciousness
This synestesia thing is intriguing.

I don't have seen the Video yet - Only the First Part but speedly - I agree something intuitively with You Du Du - I'm searching and Finding a WIN-WIN Solution, finding always something Positive and a way of Compatibility with the suposed "Enemies" or Adversaires.
Cheers & Go

I am all for win win, actually. But tell this to some that want to win over something, someone. . .(I somewhat feel sorry for them, they loose so much. . .)

Zeitgeist II was okay, I understood more about the federal reserve and the banking system in general than I did before seeing it.
What bothered me about it was the so-called Venus Project. For a society such as this dream world to exist, it would require humanity to lose some of its primal instincts. Greed is a primal instinct. There will always be those who seek to control others. Machines doing all the work sounds great, but who repairs the machines? Sounds like workers are needed to me. Who chooses to be the laborer tending to the machines? I wouldn't want to be the robot grease monkey, and since I have a high mechanical aptitude and knowledge of computers, someone would probably decide for me it's in the best interest of the collective for me to be the repairman.
Sorry, I'm not working for the good of the collective, I work for me and my family. I don't agree with this concept that religion has to be abandoned for the world to be a better place, either. People have to learn that using religion to impose their will upon others is wrong. Unless I can be a philosopher sitting in my personal palace with handmaidens, I ain't going for it. It sounds like Utopian communism to me, and that's a lie I refuse to buy.
Synnie, it's not about winning. I'd love to see a world where all is fair and honest and just and kind, but human nature prevents that from happening. I look for enlightenment every day, and the true seeker realizes that it is a lifetime journey to even come close to grasping it. In fact, it's the journey that's important, not the destination so much.

.Yeah and the journey could be much more enjoyable. Nevertheless i agree that it sound like Utopian communism, but thats because communism its the only model that mankind have tried, with disastrous results.
In my opinion every one should be free to believe in whatever they want, but religion has an history of dictatorship and repression wether they are Catholics or muslins or whatever, they are always trying to impose their beaviour. If you think for a moment, Budism is not a religion, is a philosophy of love and of pacifism and of non violence. So, i do not want to say that Zeitgeist Movement is tthe end, but they give sensible clues for the jouney.
