  1. Great interview! What he says is so important, but so few really listening. If we believe what he is saying, and understand how serious our situation is, and how imperative that we act now, then we must get this kind of information out to as many others as we can. I find his proposal that we move forward into a different way of living, of producing food, of running our economies very exciting, very promising. Are enough of us prepared to do that it takes? I hope so.

  2. It's the multi nationals, Banksters, and greedy selfish spineless politicians you red to convince,
    How can the world possiblely have a chance when we have leaders like Donald Trump a baffoon

  3. We need a NEW UNITED NATIONS, to deal with the challenges from a neutral logic and scientific way, without interference of Monopolists, Lobbyists, national interests and stupid politicians.

  4. Many thanks for the program Dushyant. I guess I've always had an intrinsic knowing since the age of four, when I could lift the latch on the gate by my self, and quite right; you are found if you want to be. I binned my T.V. six years ago and never looked back. Bit of a strange one this. Two things that seem to be closing down together, Churches' and Pub's. One controlled the mind, the other numbed. lol!

  5. Thanks for the post, I had heard of Gaia however this discussion explains and discussed so much in detail. Very informative.

  6. I have been a proponent of the Gaia Hypothesis. What i can't understand is why our leaders ignore this ration understanding. In Canada we have an election coming up in October and it is a critical moment for the future of the world. a thirty year period of global conservatism and widespread ignorance must be stopped somewhere if the human species is to survive. Google "no more harper dot ca" Please help in this amateur grass roots campaign. You can talk till you are blue in the face about these facts but hat doesn't add up to change in the near future, as PhD Stephan Harding claims it may only be 8 to 10 years hence that we will undergo a great warming. The uptake of these theories by those who rule us is almost glacial. It is bound to get warmer next year so buy a T shirt!

  7.  Noble laureate James Lovelock is correct when he says earth is living Gaia. The truth that universe is self-organizing one was known to ancient east. However this knowledge was lost. Modern science visualizes universe from single force gravity that is centripetal and tends to black hole and singularity. Einstein resisted this dead end and tried invent a second force and space-time that opposes gravity. To evolve our knowledge all we need to do is look to nature and life. Life in contrast works against gravity in creative manner.  It transforms gravity into anti- gravity in its inner space.  It builds a material mass that grows against gravity.  Life has capacity to conquer time and death and perpetuate in time. Life begins it journey from a single cell that is formed from parallel worlds; male and female. The origin of life can be traced beyond a cell to DNA and information that unfolds and enfolds. Information form life in turn can be traced to atom and its inner space, where life originate as little perturbation of spirit. What this means we can reinvent Big Bang Theory sensibly, account for sting theory and Ekpyrotic scenario of universe.  Very clearly universe is living and need to be understood as information or knowledge unfolding and enfolding to sustain the system – http://www.scribd.com/doc/208568404/The-String-Atom-of-Life-Soul-Consciousness-and-Future-Technologies

  8. This is exactly what I teach as an Earth Based Spirituality Pagan. The Earth is sacred. We are the children of the Earth and Sun as is all life on the planet. As such we are the siblings to all life on Earth. The Earth and Sun are the children of the Cosmos which is a sentient deity. Everything is a part of deity. Evolution is the running theme and is therefore also sacred but now Humans can control how they will evolve. The goal is obvious; evolve to be less of glorified apes and towards higher level Humans. Science and Paganism never conflict because the Cosmos and science are one.

  9. Thanks for posting, Dushyant Chaturvedi. I want to go to school and study deep ecology. Would you recommend me to study agroecology if deep ecology is not offer in any US school? Or what other very similar careers, degrees or courses to deep ecology would you recommend to study?

  10. Sound from Harding is coming from one speaker. Sound from questioner who pops in now and then is coming from both speakers.
