From the Nova Web site: “How does the 'intelligence' of an ant colony or the stock market arise out of the simple actions of its members? Scientists describe emergence, a science that studies how complex patterns and behaviors arise from the actions of individual units acting independently.” www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/sciencenow/

Inception is now in theaters. I saw the film recently and I was not disappointed. The movie felt like a dizzy sci-fi lucid dream and I stumbled out of the theater afterward like I has just crawled out of a hall of mirrors. Don’t worry, there’s no big spoilers in this review.
In this article, I am focusing on how the film portrayed dreaming well, and where it fell flat.
Editor's Note from Marie Sakai: Sometimes it's easy to forget the simplicity that life is. It's easy to believe that we don't have everything. But this movie by filmmaker Louie Schwartzherg reminds us that life is a gift and most importantly our life, our world, each other-we are all part of this amazing creation that is art. Inspirational narrative spoken from Brother David Steindl-Rast will speak to your heart, as he says, "Open your Heart. Open your Heart to the World." And there, you will find the transformation you are yearning to become. We all have this deepness inside of us. Cultivate it. Nurture it. And we will all grow in the artwork of our dreams coming true. 2012 is all about seeing your dreams realized. Be blessed.
The fact is that many of us already share a Big Idea for a better world. Instead of a wasteful, growth-at-all-costs economy that fails both people and the planet, hundreds of millions of us want a new economy that puts safe products, a healthy environment, and happy people first...
Editor's Note from Susan Lutz: The Story of Stuff keeps pushing the envelope on creating a better life for our planet. The new movie, The Story of Change, brings much of Annie Leonard's work together. The voice of unity, she claims will bring our planet to a place of peace, less toxicity, and more awareness so we can continue moving optimistically ahead for the generations to come.

Science tells us that Earth created very particular and important sensitivities, perceptions, and skills in women. The wisdom of a woman living a healthy, safe, and fulfilling life is a cosmological event. When women are allowed to be fully human, population falls, families stabilize, and local economies thrive. When she is not allowed to be fully human it is not only a humanitarian crisis but a cosmological crisis. A unique aspect of the world is squelched...
