Deepak Chopra: Social Media is the Next Phase of Humanity [VIDEO]

Deepak Chopra: Social Media is the Next Phase of Humanity [VIDEO] | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

“Technology is our creation; we weren’t created by technology, so let’s use our creation to bring about a healing,” Chopra said. “At the most fundamental level, we are not just connected, we are inseparable.”


But harnessing the power of social media, to become something larger than just networking, Chopra said, is a choice for humanity to make — the world is still at a crossroads. Although he said technology itself is neutral, he espoused a message of hope, saying that if harnessed for good, technology could lead the world to a place of good and produce a united solution for the challenges of the world.


“What drones can’t do, what the armies can’t do, what the weapons can’t do, what the weapons of mass destruction can’t do, what biological warfare can’t do — we can do through technology to heal the world,” Chopra said.

Intimate Conversation with Mother Earth

Intimate Conversation with Mother Earth | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

by Thich Nhat Hanh

 

You manifested more than 4 and a half billion years ago and life began to manifest on you less that one billion years later. Since then, you have gradually become the beautiful living planet that you are today. Life evolved from deep within the oceans, multiplying and prospering on your body, slowly improving the atmosphere so that countless species could manifest. After one billion years, there was enough free oxygen in the atmosphere to create the ozone layer, which then prevented harmful radiation from reaching your surface, thus allowing life to develop on land.
