RICHARD FEYNMAN:
Computers From The Inside Out - The Feynman Lecture on Heuristics

Historically celebrated as one of the most brilliant physicists, teachers, and original thinkers, Professor Feynman is the acknowledged inventor of quantum computing.  In the spirit of Feynman: find out what computers means, find out what heuristics means, find out what idiosyncratic thinking means, find out what the pleasure of finding things out means.  Richard Feynman joyfully shares the fun of understanding systems - he calls the workings of the machine we are discussing,  “The guts!”  A professorial/conspiratorial tone carries his entertaining introduction to his attentive non-technical audience,   "One of the miseries of life is that everybody names things a little bit wrong, and so it makes everything a little harder to understand in the world than it would be if it were named differently."   The program begins and  Richard Feynman is waiting for you on the playground of your mind.  You will be amazed at how smart you are after immersing yourself in Feynman's world.  These first 2 DVDs, Computers From The Inside Out and Tiny Machines are worth viewing many times, showing them to your family, friends, students and class.  TRT 1 hr. 17 mins.

RICHARD FEYNMAN:
The Feynman Lecture on Nanotechnology

Tiny Machines - The Feynman Lecture on Nanotechnology
Richard Feynman originated the idea of nanotechnology, or molecular machines, in the early 1960s. Here he explains the idea to a general audience, and illustrates it using slides and diagrams.

On this tape he talks about the tiniest tools and the fascinating way they work. Tom Van Sant's eye art piece is discussed and pictured in the video.

TERENCE McKENNA:
Dreaming Awake at the End of Time

Join Terence McKenna, author, explorer and philosopher for a think-along deconstruction of the deepening worldwide weirdness. With his characteristic hope and humor, McKenna examined time and its mysteries, the nature of language, the techniques of ecstasy, high technology and virtual cyberspace, the role of hallucinogenic plants in shamanism and the evolution of human cultures, and the foundations of post-modern spirituality. The lecture and discussion was didactic, syncretic, challenging, eclectic, eidetic, and irreverent intellectual adventure - "for those who have grown weary of Moldevite suppositories and unicorny flimflam! A very full 2 hours awaits you in audio or video form.

JOSEPH CHILTON PEARCE
The Magical Child's Transcendent Mind

Joseph Chilton Pearce held the attention of the packed audience for two hours of his visit to Waldorf School, San Francisco. His enthusiasm for his material was conveyed more as a transmission then as a lecture. The information that streamed from him during his dance between blackboard and overhead projector was up-to-the minute, angst in time, citing many of the contributors to the Mind@Large Catalog of Sound Photosynthesis: Karl Pribram, Jean Houston, Rupert Sheldrake, Brian Swimme, Jean Liedloff, Robert Monroe, Michael Murphy, to name a few. Pearce's latest book The Biological Transcendence: A Blueprint of the Human Spirit was minimally mentioned but largely drawn from his first book, The Crack in the Cosmic Egg , is celebrating another printing after remaining in print consistently for the last 30 years. TRT: 120 minutes.

TERENCE McKENNA
TimeWave Zero

A detailed description of Terence's TimeWave concept and a demonstration of the software Terence originated in his early exploratory period of deep study with the I Ching, the ancient oracular Chinese Book of Changes. He proudly takes us on a biographical tour of our culture from his personal library in the early 80’s to what he saw the TimeWave project to 2012. Terence describes the Time Wave as his "only original work". The first part of this piece is the first visual description of Terence’s unique theory. The second chapter of the tape astounds the viewer with the display of the the historical resonances that demostrate how the last 4000 years are compressed into the increasingly speeded up, drawn and sqeezed collective thoughts of the “Gaian matrix”. Terence partnered with Sound Photosynthesis’ media magician Brian Wallace at the editing helm to created the visuals that dance and spiral with Terence’s every sugestion. This densely edited piece is destined to become a top seller. This is one of the most visually informative and insightful 23 minutes of tape you’ll find anywhere.

HUSTON SMITH
Evolution: Why Can’t We Handle This Issue Sensibly?

Huston Smith is Professor of Religion and Philosophy, Emeritus, Syracuse University. He has also taught at MIT, Washington University and University of California. He points out that during the week, our schools teach that human beings are organisms who have developed increasingly ingenious ways of interacting with their environments. On weekends most churches and synagogues preach that we have immortal souls and are created in the image of God. This borders on cultural schizophrenia. We still haven’t thought this issue through. Hard scientific evidence must be accepted, but religious beliefs deserve a hearing as well. Can we find a middle way that avoids both extremes? TRT 1 hour 25 minutes.

RAM DASS: Ram Dass
The Gift of Suffering

Suffering presents a conundrum for the human mind: If God is compassionate, where does suffering come from?

The video of this spell binding presentation is a testimony to the amazing spirit of Ram Dass.

TERENCE McKENNA:
The Taxonomy of Illusion

An Evening with Terence McKenna at UC Santa Cruz hosted by the student organization Millbrook West. Professor Ralph Abraham, the famous chaos theorist mathematician, informed and introduced Terence to the large bright audience. “Taxonomy” defined as classification, especially in relation to its general laws and principles; that department of science or subject, which consists in or relates to classification. Terence amusingly articulates by enumerating examples of the varied forms of illusions by which humans are entertained, intrigued and frightened. This talk is a particularily anecdotal way to approach the study of the imaginal, the illusive and anomalous. Terence McKenna, informs and delights his audiences through many media. As an accomplished author of more than four major works of fiction and non-fiction depending on one’s belief system; voice of at least three hundred audio and video titles; and participant in numberous popular CD’s, Terence is infiltrating the mind at large with his outlandish theories at an alarming pace. This talk is presented in a two audio cassette album, #A1050-93 or in a 120 minute video, #V500-93.

VIVIENNE VERDON-ROE
"Not in My Name"Face to Face with Faustin Bray

SOS: Alert! Face to Face Interview between Faustin Bray and Vivienne Verdon-Roe presents an urgent plea for the public to respond immediately to the crisis of the 3/4 covering ocean of the planet Earth. Academy Award-winning producer/director. Vivienne Verdon-Roe, urges listeners to join in a grassroots campaign against the U.S. Navy's proposed deployment of Surveillance Towed Array Sensor System Low Frequency Active sonar (or "SURTASS LFA"). This new sonar system to detect quiet enemy submarines would blast one of the loudest man-made sounds throughout 80% of the world's oceans. In violation of federal environmental law, this technology has the potential to deafen and even kill whales, dolphins and other marine mammals.Vivienne Verdon-Roe also descusses the military's broader war-making capacity outlined in the Department of Defense's "Joint Vision 20/20". The report calls for "full-spectrum dominance" as the key to fighting and winning wars in the future through access to and freedom to operate in all domains--space, sea, land, air and information. Do you know what the U.S. Department of Defense is doing in our name? TRT: 45:37

THOMAS LAIRD
Into Tibet: A book report.Face to Face with Faustin

An hour interview with a man who leaves no dead air. Thomas Laird lived in Asia for the last 30 years and he is prepared to tell and write about his extraordinary experiences. His first major book has hit the US in a time of many questions and anxiety with few answers or solutions. At least we get insights from Laird and we too become more prepared to evaluate our future moves. Thomas Laird uses his well compiled history of the first CIA operative's work and subsequent regretful demise to bring together elements of the drive, excitement, intrigue, cultural difference and totally "other perspective" that effected the world between the years 1945-1949. The political climate of today and the suffering of many peoples have understandable roots in the findings of photographer/journalist Laird. See the video, get the book and listen to the other CDs we are going to put out of this man's work. TRT 59 min.
