Re: SMP Video Collection

Sorry, I want to bump this again.


All of them are by Juan Enriquez who is presents his ideas very well.


1) Even as mega-banks topple, Juan Enriquez says the big reboot is yet to come. But don't look for it on your ballot -- or in the stock exchange. It'll come from science labs, and it promises keener bodies and minds. Our kids are going to be ... different. (Feb 2009)

http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/j...w_science.html


2) Juan Enriquez challenges our definition of bioenergy. Oil, coal, gas and other hydrocarbons are not chemical but biological products, based on plant matter -- and thus, growable. Our whole approach to fuel, he argues, needs to change. (Sept. 2007)

http://www.ted.com/index.php/talks/j...ow_energy.html



3) Scientific discoveries, futurist Juan Enriquez notes, demand a shift in code, and our ability to thrive depends on our mastery of that code. Here, he applies this notion to the field of genomics. (Feb 2003)

No need to be sorry. This needs to be a sticky anyway.

Re: SMP Video Collection

Given the recent split between Religion/God/Theology from SMP, we might want to split the sticky or make this a sticky in RGT too.

50% of the members of RGT wouldn't watch any of these videos after Wikipedia reveals to them that each of the speakers are on Satan's side imo.

Yeh, def an over-estimation on my part. Splendour and her cyber hubby(you know who im talking about) do almost account for 50% of the posts in RGT tho so................

Re: SMP Video Collection

Made this thread a sticky for the SMP crowd per the request of a number of posters, and the thread certainly "deserves it. "

Please use good judgement and taste, as all have so far, in posting additional videos and keep remarks/discussion focused on the video collection itself. We have an excellent start so far, let's keep adding value.
