Lewis Dartnell – How to Rebuild Our World from Scratch

September 13, 2014

Lewis Dartnell

Lewis Dartnell discusses his book The Knowledge – How to Rebuild our World from Scratch.

Maybe it was a viral pandemic, or an asteroid strike, or perhaps nuclear war. Whatever the cause, the world as we know it has ended and you and the other survivors must start again. What key knowledge would you need to start rebuilding civilisation from scratch? Once you’ve scavenged what you can, how do you begin producing the essentials? How do you grow food, generate power, prepare medicines, or get metal out of rocks? Could you avert another dark age or take shortcuts to accelerate redevelopment?

Living in the modern world, we have become disconnected from the basic processes that support our lives, as well as the fundamentals of science that enable us to relearn things for ourselves. The Knowledge is a journey of discovery, a book which explains everything you need to know about everything. It’s a quick start guide for rebooting civilisation which will transform your understanding of the world – and help you prepare for when it’s no longer here.

Andy Duncan – Independence for Scotland?

September 4, 2014

Andy Duncan 3

Andy Duncan discusses the forthcoming Scottish Independence Referendum taking place on Thursday, 18 September, 2014. The prospect of Scotland breaking away from the rest of the United Kingdom has always been controversial and divisive. For every argument in favour of such a move, there has been a counter argument warning of the dangers of secession. Debates about what currency an independent Scotland would use, how it would pay its bills, which army would defend it, and whether it could – or should – become a member of the European Union have raged constantly, now kicked into high gear as the referendum itself draws near.

Nick Duffell – Wounded Leaders

August 29, 2014

Nick Duffell

Nick Duffell discusses his book Wounded Leaders: British Elitism and the Entitlement Illusion. In an age when America elected its first black president and the Middle East stirred with popular uprising, Britons were again content to elect the products of their elitist Public Schools. But, their grooming for power aside, does such an education produce excellence – or expertise in self-deception and duplicity? The early 21st Century gives us some clues. Tony Blair maintained his façade of inner conviction but lost the nation through blind allegiance to the Establishment. David Cameron let his boyish mask of caring sincerity slip to reveal a bully’s attitude beneath his meritocratic pretence. A bicycle in Downing Street highlighted a deep-seated problem in Britain: a divided society caught in the enduring trance of the Entitlement Illusion.

James Howard Kunstler – Too Much Magic

August 23, 2014

James Howard Kunstler

James Howard Kunstler discusses some of the issues raised in his books The Long Emergency (2005) and Too Much Magic (2013), examining how the global crises in energy, the economy and the environment have unfolded in the interim. The last two hundred years have seen the greatest explosion of progress and wealth in the history of mankind, but the age of oil that fuelled this expansion is rapidly coming to an end. The depletion of fossil fuels is about to transform life as we know it, and do so much sooner than we think. Kunstler explains what to expect after we pass the tipping point of peak oil production, setting out to prepare us for economic, political, and social changes on an unimaginable scale.

Scott Alan Roberts – The Secret History of the Reptilians

August 16, 2014

Scott Alan Roberts

Scott Alan Roberts discusses his book The Secret History of the Reptilians: The Pervasive Presence of the Serpent in Human History, Religion and Alien Mythos. The very real probability that non-human intelligences visited and even copulated with primordial humans is detailed in civilization’s most ancient cultural and religious records. These historical records further reveal that these intelligences were reptilian in nature or, at the very least, have been represented throughout human history in reptilian form. From the serpent Nachash in the Garden of Eden, Atum the Egyptian snake-man, and Quetzalcotl, the feathered serpent god of the Mayans, to the double-helix snake symbol of Enki in ancient Sumerian literature, the serpent has been the omnipresent link between humans and the gods in every culture.

Simon G. Powell – Darwin’s Unfinished Business

August 7, 2014

Simon Powell

Simon G. Powell discusses his book Darwin’s Unfinished Business – The Self-Organizing Intelligence of Nature. Darwin’s theory of evolution is undoubtedly one of the most important scientific ideas of the modern age, explaining the existence of both life and consciousness without recourse to divine intervention. Yet how do we interpret evolution? How do we evaluate the ability of Nature to engineer something as exquisite as the genetic code or the human brain? Could it be that evolution is an intelligent process? Is Nature smart? According to most scientists, the answer is no. While humanity may be intelligent and purposeful, the natural processes that crafted us are deemed to be devoid of such attributes.

Ervin Laszlo – The Self-Actualizing Cosmos

August 1, 2014

Ervin Laszlo3

Ervin Laszlo discusses his book The Self-Actualizing Cosmos – The Akasha Revolution in Science and Human Consciousness. Science evolves through alternating phases of ‘normal’ science and radical shifts that create scientific revolutions. We saw this at the turn of the 20th century, when science shifted from a Newtonian worldview to Einstein’s relativity paradigm, and again with the shift to the quantum paradigm. Now, as we recognize the nonlocal interconnection of all things in space and time, we find our scientific worldview shifting once again.
