Mind Blowing

January 31, 2011



That's an image produced by Chris Kotsiopoulos from photographs he took over a 30-hour period near Athens, Greece. Here's some more information on how this stunning image was made. This makes me feel so small and similarly a part of something so beautiful and large. Really, really stunning.



Update: After-Death Hospital Studies

January 28, 2011



Raymond Moody's Life After Life broke new ground in 1975. Today, hospitals around the world have launched empirical studies aimed at determining whether or not consciousness survives physical death.

It's fun to watch the evolution of these inquiries.

Life after death? Croydon hospital participates in international study

From Your Local Guardian:

By Kirsty Whalley

Croydon hospital studies life after death

A hospital is helping scientists go beyond the grave and understand what happens after patients die.

The Croydon University Hospital trust is one of 25 medical centres across the world taking part in a study to find out what happens to the human consciousness when people die.

Russell Metcalfe-Smith, clinical lead for resuscitation, is in charge of the study, which has been going since 2008.

The 34-year-old has been responsible for bringing many people back from the brink of death after a cardiac arrest.

He has spoken to those he has helped bring back to life to find out if they saw or felt anything when clinically dead.

The hospital has shelves fixed above beds, with images on them, and the idea is if someone has an out of body experience, they should be able to describe the picture.

He said: “People often feel they are floating above themselves and can see what is happening.

“We have had a number of people who suggested they have experienced something, but we have not had anyone who has seen the picture that is facing the ceiling.

“Some can remember people around them, some remember what people were wearing. One patient reported being in the room but being unable to get out of a window and then feeling they were coming back into their body.”

Take “the Other” to Lunch

January 21, 2011



Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing, there is a field. I'll meet you there. - Rumi

Reading the blurb about this TED.com Talk by Elisabeth Lesser, my first inclination was to skip the presentation and move on, but something urged me to click the Play button. Within her first few sentences Lesser had my full attention. The eleven minutes and eight seconds are so worth it!

"For more than three decades, Elizabeth Lesser has worked with leading figures in the field of healing self and society. For the past ten years, [she] has spearheaded Omega [Institute]’s popular Women and Power conferences, renowned gatherings featuring women leaders, authors, activists and artists from around the world." (TED.com bio)

About This Talk from TED.com:

There's an angry divisive tension in the air that threatens to make modern politics impossible. Elizabeth Lesser explores the two sides of human nature within us (call them "the mystic" and "the warrior”) that can be harnessed to elevate the way we treat each other. She shares a simple way to begin real dialogue -- by going to lunch with someone who doesn't agree with you, and asking them three questions to find out what's really in their hearts.



In the Event of Flood, Do Nothing

January 20, 2011



Disasters happen. It's a fact of life in 3-D reality. The burning issue is how to avoid harm and mayhem when disaster strikes.

In the event of Tsunami and rapid inundation, a cool Jules Verne-type solution is being proffered—with a nod to Noah—by a firm of Russian architects and the International Union of Architects' program Architecture For Disaster Relief.

All aboard the Ark Hotel! Giant biosphere is a 'self-contained haven' in event of climate change flood disaster.

Daily Mail Online reports:

It looks like a cross between Noah's Ark and something out of a 1970s science-fiction film. The futuristic Ark Hotel has been designed to withstand floods caused by rising sea levels. The floating behemoth is a 'biosphere' conceived as a safe, self-contained haven in case of disaster. Boasting a green, self-sustaining environment for guests, the shell-shaped hotel would withstand tidal waves and other natural disasters.

The full article includes renderings of the interior and exterior of the biosphere.

Human Planet is an upcoming nature series about human beings, arguably one of the most interesting animals around. Human Planet was first broadcast in the UK on BBC One at 8pm on January 13th 2011 for 8 weeks, with international release coming soon!
