2009 Massey Lectures: The Wayfinders - Why Ancient Wisdom Matters in the Modern World, Lecture 5, Century of the Wind http://bit.ly/cyUOty Take an hour off from what you're doing and listen to this speech ... it's absolutely mind-shredding. "The Wayfinders is a profound celebration of the wonder of human genius and spirit as brought into being by culture. There are alternatives, other ways of orienting human beings in social, spiritual and ecological space. Our destiny is not indelibly written in a set of choices that demonstrably and scientifically have proven not to be wise. By their very existence, the diverse cultures of the world bear witness to the folly of those who say that we cannot change - as we all know we must change - the fundamental manner in which we inhabit this planet."
