Perhaps when we are able to truly see our interconnectedness we will be able to work in harmony with nature and each other.
EVOLUTION OR EXTINCTION Bruce Lipton PhD
David Christian Big history Backed by stunning illustrations, David Christian narrates a complete history of the universe, from the Big Bang to the Internet, in a riveting 18 minutes. This is “Big History”: an enlightening, wide-angle look at complexity, life and humanity, set against our slim share of the cosmic timeline. He closes with the hope that studying Big History will help his grandson gain the knowledge needed to meet the severe challenges and potential opportunities that his generation will be facing. This is a miraculous story of the “life force” that has forged it’s most advanced, complex yet most fragile aspect in human beings who are perhaps the key to the next phases of evolution.
