Michael Huesemann: Techno-Fix: Why Technology Won’t Save Us Or the Environment

Does Reality have a Genetic Basis

The ultimate construction, as a basis for fundamental theoretical physics is an imperfectly understood structure called "M-Theory" or "Superstring/M-Theory" (SSMT). In a quest to create a rigorous mathematical background for SSMT, new mathematical structures called "Adinkras" have been proposed as the appropriate objects to study. This study has led to the possibility that there exist a "DNA of Reality" which will be presented in this talk.

Vandana Shiva spoke to a sold out audience at Hart House Theatre on October 22, 2009 about her philosophy of Earth Democracy.

Biopiracy and the patenting of food (GMO's) is an attempt to own life itself. Once patented, food becomes a commodity with unparalled finanical gains for the corporations who own them and tremendous hardship for farmers and the general population who are forbidden to produce for themselves. In india, there has been an 8000% increase in the cost of seed which has been genetically modified. Organic seed self-perpetuates, while GMO seeds must be purchased again each year. Consequently, 1/4 million Indian farmers have committed suicide in the last 10 years.

What can we do?

*Save non-gmo seeds
*Tell politicians you'll withold your vote and financial contributions unless the party bans GMO foods
*Accept no law which distroys or disallows your right to preserve and exchange seed.
*Work to abolish patents on our food and seeds

This feature documentary by Sylvie Van Brabant introduces Mikael Rioux, a young Québécois activist who founded Échofête, Quebecs first environmental festival. Spurred by his passionate concern for the world his son will inherit, Rioux goes on a global quest to meet 7 visionaries with concrete solutions to ecological problems. Together, they offer a survival guide for our planet and a journey back to hope.
