Speaking of Compassion....

...and soulful coincidii, you might want to watch this wonderful 10-minute animation, which you will also be reading!  (You'll see.)  It's by Jeremy Rifkin, author of The Empathic Civilization: The Race to Global Consciousness in a World in Crisis.

I recommend also cell biologist Lynn Margulis, who says we are like this down at the cell level--and she's the co-author of Mystery Dance, with her son Dorion Sagan, mentioned earlier in this blog.

And to Richard Rorty (R.I.P.), a wonderful philosopher sociologist.

And, of course, back to Living Downstream, by Sandra Steingraber, and the new documentary film based on the book.

You can find all these things on your own, and this is a much shorter entry, eh?!  Many thanks to Bill Harrison, who posted the youtube link at Facebook!

Thanks for this film Kathleen. These RSA animations are wonderful educational tools, especially for people like me who are visually oriented. Last week my son, Kai, and I watched the one on Crises of Capitalism
