Trailer of “The Connected Universe” Film

Screen Shot 2015-10-03 at 10.20.57

Very impressive and inspiring film trailer:


Do you know how you are connected to all 7, 273,405, 490 people in the world?     Do you understand the connection that you share with all living things and also which patterns, that are found all across the Universe, are also found in you?

Discover amazing ideas that will not only help to change THE WORLD… these ideas will also help change YOUR WORLD.
 When you begin to truly see and understand how THE Universe is interconnected,YOUR Universe begins to expand and you begin to more deeply feel the connections that are all around you.
This documentary film explores new understandings in science that reveal a bigger picture of interconnection than we have ever imagined.  The first time that we looked back at Earth from space … humanity was changed forever.  When we changed our perspective (by rising above all the barriers and separations in our world) we could more easily see the Earth as one interconnected system… ONE planet, ONE home. There was a conscious shift in our understanding of the interconnected “butterfly effect” where each action in one part of the world would create a reaction somewhere else in the world.  This film makes connections on a universal scale.


I look forward to see the film when it is launched by filmmaker Malcom Carter and  Nassim Haramein, the Director of Research at the Resonance Foundation in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Recommended read. Caveat is that above a certain level of connected complexity the total system becomes unstable. For instance banks and insurance companies should not be allowed to merge. Have the banksters learned those lessons from the 2008 crash ? If not we are in for another crash. Young people tell me that the present Wall Street / City / Nation State financial-political system is UNSUSTAINABLE.

So the lesson is to build a dynamic society where certain functional layers are agnostic (and uncoupled)  of eachother. And yes, Picketty unequality is part of that. It is quided by the Zipf-Mandelbrot Law ranking distribution. The proof of that Law I will re-publish here soon. Its basis is an ecology of widely different sized and succesful fractal clusters.

Forrest Network; How Trees Communicate Underground

Screen Shot 2015-09-28 at 11.47.27

(Re-blogged from “Waking Times : )

Researchers at the University of British Columbia are concluding that trees are interacting with one another in a symbiotic relationship that helps the trees to survive. Connected by fungi, the underground root systems of plants and trees are transferring carbon and nitrogen back and forth between each other in a network of subtle communication. Similar to the network of neurons and axons in the human brain, the network of fungi, roots, soil and micro-organisms beneath the larger ‘mother trees’ gives the forest its own consciousness.

See the Video : Published on Jul 19, 2014 Look where James Cameron got the Idea for Avatar’s Mothertree! Great short documentary, produced by Julia Dordel (filmed and directed by Dan McKinney) who also brought the science aspect into the web series

In this real-life model of forest resilience and regeneration, Professor Suzanne Simard shows that all trees in a forest ecosystem are interconnected.


Can humans form a similar shared and decentral “collective intelligence” out of a wide diversity of perspectives?

Where Did the Idea Come From?
We came up with the idea after noticing a common thread of isolation in today’s society. This video aims to address the vulnerability that is often avoided in making sustained eye contact with members of the public. Holding eye contact with another person can evoke many feelings which can be scary, especially when in today’s society we tend to repress our deepest emotions. It calls on true courage to trust another being to see you and accept you just as you are, in a complete state of vulnerability. We also noticed that making eye contact with strangers is commonly intertwined with the idea of unwanted sexual attention. We believe eye contact is much deeper and far more meaningful than anything a sleaze might be able to bring to it. So instead of complaining about this misrepresentation we found an inspiring way to allow members of the public to actively participate in the…

The Popular Science article describes a map made by combining multipe sources of maps and what is even more relevant it dcscribes certain important qualities, like latency, for this basic tele-communication infrastructure. And similarities with the rail and road grids.




The full lenght paper describing it:  including links to the Map itself.
