Religion is a natural outgrowth of the intuitive ways of knowing that evolved with human culture. Although many people continue to find value in religious identity and community, intuitive knowledge has been eclipsed by a more effective way of knowing described as the scientific way. Secularism is a better way of relating religion to politics, and is gradually replacing theocracy. Once you understand and accept the scientific way of knowing and this preferred relationship of church and state, you become agnostic and secular even if you continue to identify with and participate in religion. As Jeff T. Haley and Dale McGowan argue in this audio, this isn’t some abstract dream. It’s happening right now. Religion is in a continuous state of evolution, and beliefs, values, and practices are changing over time. All religions, including Christianity and Islam, can evolve to accept secularism and the scientific way of knowing to become agnostic, and even atheistic, without losing their essential value. Haley and McGowan explain how you can help this natural process and share reality with your friends and family in a way that encourages religions to embrace the best of humanity´s knowledge and values. 1.

A new theory of the evolution of human cognition and human social life that emphasizes the role of information sharing across generations. Over the last three million years or so, our lineage has diverged sharply from those of our great ape relatives. Change has been rapid (in evolutionary terms) and pervasive. Morphology, life history, social life, sexual behavior, and foraging patterns have all shifted sharply away from those of the other great apes. In The Evolved Apprentice, Kim Sterelny argues that the divergence stems from the fact humans gradually came to enrich the learning environment of the next generation. Humans came to cooperate in sharing information, and to cooperate ecologically and reproductively as well, and these changes initiated positive feedback loops that drove us further from other great apes. Sterelny develops a new theory of the evolution of human cognition and human social life that emphasizes the gradual evolution of information-sharing practices across generations and how these practices transformed human minds and social lives. Sterelny proposes that humans developed a new form of ecological interaction with their environment, cooperative foraging. The ability to cope with the immense variety of human ancestral environments and social forms, he argues, depended not just on adapted minds but also on adapted developmental environments. The book is published by The MIT Press. ´´The author´s imposing scholarship, skill in philosophical analysis, and conscientious scientific methodology make this work a definitive critical discussion of current controversies concerning how humans evolved.” (Choice) ´´A landmark in theorizing about human cognitive evolution… I recommend it highly.” (The European Legacy) 1.

In this witty, fact-packed A-Z, Newman takes the listener on a whirlwind tour from caring, sharing vampire bats to intelligent slime mould; from pacifist baboons to Richard Dawkins wrestling naked with his postman; from the invisibility cloak of the Hawaiian bobtail squid to Francis ´´DNA´´ Crick´s belief that life on Earth began with alien spaceships. The only comedian ever credited in a paper published in the science journal Nature, Newman explores how stunning scientific breakthroughs have turned received ideas of evolution upside down. Now a BBC Radio 4 comedy series, The Entirely Accurate Encyclopaedia of Evolution is based on the stand-up show Robert Newman´s New Theory of Evolution. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rob Newman.

One symbol, perhaps above all others, holds a crucial significance for everyone in search of wholeness: the well. From the terrestrial world it leads down into darkness, to the treasure of pure feminine consciousness. We are each blessed with our own well, and from this source of salvation and eternal life, teaches Marion Woodman, we must ´´drink or die´´. In Sitting by the Well, this acclaimed Jungian analyst and author uses dreams, symbols, and body imagery to reach into the shadows of the unconscious mind and cast light on our everyday lives. Here is a poetic culmination of Woodman´s many years of work with the psychological impact of patriarchy on men´s and women´s lives - from distorted body image and addiction to sexual trauma and relationships to our ultimate connection with the Great Mother (matter) and Great Father (spirit). Rare Lectures Collected for the First Time On six archival recordings - each one digitally remastered for maximum clarity and comprehension - Marion Woodman unravels Carl Jung´s core teachings about archetypes and the unconscious and analyzes how dreams and metaphors provide powerful healing tools for the psyche. You will hear the evolution of Woodman´s theories throughout the past decade while vividly sharing her insights into what we each must do to open to spirit and find meaning in our suffering. For all of us interested in what Woodman calls ´´the language of our instincts´´, Sitting by the Well is a one-of-a-kind guide for learning it. In her practice, Woodman has encountered many people who feel lost and out of touch with their bodies and their spirits. Where is the energy and imagery we need for nourishment? Join Marion Woodman and find your way to a wellspring for deeper guidance with Sitting by the Well. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Marion Woodman.

Combining an insider´s passion with down-to-earth humor, chef and food writer Patric Kuh traces the evolution of American high-style restaurants from the 1941 opening of Le Pavillon to the recent rise of less traditional restaurants, such as Le Cirque, Spago, and Danny Meyer´s Union Square group. Kuh takes readers inside this high-stakes business, sharing little-known anecdotes, describing legendary cooks and bright new star chefs, and relating his own reminiscences. Populated by a host of food personalities, including Julia Child, M.F.K. Fisher, and James Beard, Kuh´s social and cultural history of America´s great restaurants reveals the dramatic transformations in U.S. cuisine. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Brian Sutherland.

Let me thank you Tenille, because you are providing the world with great information that´s necessary for evolution, and to me that´s a service that is part of this whole evolutionary up-wising. -- Bruce H. Lipton, Ph.D ´´Wow inspiring Tenille, I loved your warm natured format, thank you for sharing your amazing platform.´´ -- Dr John Demartini Tenille offers insightful, thoughtful perspectives and suggestion throughout this book about how to use and manage the digital world to advance ourselves and humanity. Read with an open heart and enjoy what she caringly has to say.” Howard Martin, Executive Vice President, HeartMath Inc. Digital Consciousness is a philosophical dialogue into the evolution of consciousness within the digital terrain and the legacy footprint on the human family. Exploring the emotional ´digital´ frequency of self is a concept that Tenille Bentley has given a great deal of thought to, and some of the answers to these questions and more may surprise you. While not everyone wants to ‘change the world’ we do all have the power at our fingertips now to radically affect change for someone, somewhere, some place. Recognising this ability and harnessing how we use the internet is the basis for this book. As we can become consciously aware of this new world, the power of it and the intentions we place in it at the click of a mouse button the effect is far greater than any of us can compute in the architecture of our minds. It’s having an awareness beyond the awareness, it’s caring enough to treat each post as a piece of the puzzle to the collective consciousness. Ask yourself today, what will this world look like when we reach a united level of Digital Consciousness? You have the potential in creating the world through what you perceive and search for daily. You´re either controlling what the Internet gives to you or your being controlled by it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Russell Stamets.

This is the first textbook of Virtual Anthropology, the new science that combines elements from fields as diverse as anthropology, medicine, statistics, computing, scientific visualization, and industrial design. The book is intended for students in any of these or nearby fields within biology, medicine, or engineering and for teachers, journalists, and all others who will enjoy the many examples from our real biological world. After a general introduction to the field and an overview, the book is organized around six themes conveyed in more than 300 pages of text accompanied by hundreds of carefully annotated images: medical imaging and 3D digitising techniques, electronic preparation of individual specimens, analysis of complex forms in space one or many at a time, reconstruction of forms that are partly missing or damaged, production of real objects from virtual models, and, finally, thoughts about data accessibility and sharing and the implications of all this for the future of anthropology. The authors´ emphasis is not on technical details but rather on step-by-step explanations of the wealth of examples included here, from brain evolution to surgical planning, always in light of the relevance of these approaches to science and to society. All readers are encouraged to try out the techniques on their own using the tools and data included in the Online Extra Materials resource.
