Special Week on The Bio-political Musings of a Transformed Scientist

The global crisis precipitated by the events of 9/11 was a turning point for Western civili­zation. The tragedy served as a wake-up call, alerting us to the fact that our way of life is wreaking havoc in the global community and our survival is now in question. Another much less heard, but no less important wake-up call about our survival was sounded at the same time by a community of concerned biologists. The scientists warned that the rapid disappear­ance of a wide variety of species has catapulted us deep into the sixth mass extinction to hit the planet since the origin of life. Unlike the first five such massive die-offs, attributed to extraterrestrial sources such as comets, the current wave of extinctions is due to a source much closer to home: man. The 9/11 tragedy and the disturbing rate at which species are disappearing on this planet are crises that should force us to pause and reconsider the path our culture has embarked on.

This week we will journey to look over the development of our society and the changes coming. Tomorrow I will discuss three major changes…from the “Book of Changes”
