Principled Design Based On The Laws Of Nature with William McDonough

What is meant by the idea of “Cradle to Cradle?” What is the difference between technonutrients and bionutrients and how can we safely recycle both? How can we turn sewage treatment plants into nutrient management plants? What is happening in China? McDonough says, “Things are designed to either go back to biology or back to technology without contaminating each other. . . Technonutrients can be recaptured to be reutilized forever, in safe healthy ways.” He tells us that we can and must design things to go back into an intelligent material pool for human benefit without contaminating the environment.   Program 3455

Science Set Free with Rupert Sheldrake, Ph.D.

For the past three decades, British biologist Rupert Sheldrake has been asking questions that most scientists either haven’t thought of asking, or may be discouraged from asking by the unwritten codes that often prevail in our scientific and academic institutions.

Much of mainstream or “pop” psychology give us plenty of labels, but does it go deep enough to motivate us to truly change destructive patterns? David Bedrick gives us a new vision of psychology where people are seen not as either functional or dysfunctional. It’s a psychology where awareness and

The Sacred Geometry Of Our Cells with Sondra Barrett, Ph.D.

Cells can only thrive in community; they need to connect with one another, and will call on each other as allies. And, when a cell needs a certain molecule, it actually embraces that molecule; it actually reaches out and hugs the molecule. This embrace is a universal principle of design. Sondra Barrett speaks of the sacredness of our cells related to how humans evolved. “The divine spark needs a container. I began thinking, God had to be a biochemist, because how do you build the container? In one of the theories we were mud or we were hot seawater. To
