I Am Human – Dr. Maya Angelou



“Homo sum, humani nihil a me alienum puto”

“I am a human being, nothing human can be alien to me.”

Terence (Publius Terentius Afer)

Welcome to Life!



Welcome to Life” – poem about truth and the human experience




Welcome to life!

The discipline of integrity

Becomes the leading force of progress and exploration!


Let our collective intelligence

Guide you to the ripest fruits of your efforts.

Let the effortless stillness of peace

Embrace the core of your being


You are one, wholesome reverberation of energy!

The ether of the universe is pulsating in every cell of your body,

And as this manifestation of infinity rejoices in the interconnectedness of matter,

You notice that with each breath you take,

Your senses bask in the positivity of the moment!


The acuteness of your perceptions focuses into a beam of precision and effortless efficiency.


The purpose of life becomes life itself!

The life you were born to live!

Your contributions advancing the progress of existence into the next dimension…

“Overview” is a short documentary on the Overview Effect, a cognitive shift in awareness reported by astronauts.

You Are Here – Pale Blue Dot

This excerpt from A Pale Blue Dot was inspired by an image taken, at Carl Sagan’s suggestion, by Voyager 1 on February 14, 1990.

As the spacecraft left our planetary neighborhood for the fringes of the solar system, engineers turned it around for one last look at its home planet.

Voyager 1 was about 6.4 billion kilometres (4 billion miles) away, and approximately 32 degrees above the ecliptic plane, when it captured this portrait of our world.

Natural Phenomena – Video by VideoSapien

Humans are part of the natural order.

We’re risen apes that acquired language and learned to use tools.

Skyscrapers and spacecraft may seem unnatural, but they’re just as much a part of the natural order as beaver dams and bird nests.

Boring electrical lines hint at the energy solution of a mammalian species.

Open your eyes to the world you’ve grown accustomed to, and rejoice in the fact that you can participate in the human project.

The Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness


An international group of prominent scientists has signed The Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness in which they are proclaiming their support for the idea that animals are conscious and aware to the degree that humans are – a list of animals that includes all mammals, birds, and even the octopus.




On this day of July 7, 2012, a prominent international group of cognitive neuroscientists, neuropharmacologists, neurophysiologists, neuroanatomists and computational neuroscientists gathered at The University of Cambridge to reassess the neurobiological substrates of conscious experience and related behaviors in human and non-human animals…


We declare the following: “The absence of a neocortex does not appear to preclude an organism from experiencing affective states. Convergent evidence indicates that non-human animals have the neuroanatomical, neurochemical, and neurophysiological substrates of conscious states along with the capacity to exhibit intentional behaviors. Consequently, the weight of evidence indicates that humans are not unique in possessing the neurological substrates that generate consciousness. Nonhuman animals, including all mammals and birds, and many other creatures, including octopuses, also possess these neurological substrates.”
