Muppet Show - Harry Belafonte - Turn the World Around (ep314) (by aarnisbin)
Because of the deep systemic problems facing humanity on a global scale and the related opportunities for solving these problems, it has never been more important to foster a worldview and paradigm that promotes cooperation over competition in macroeconomics, international relations, global security, planetary ecology, total human ecosystem sustainability, and every other aspect of planetary human culture.
Cosmic Duo by ~roquelogozzo
Art is the one form of human energy in the whole world, which really works for union, and destroys the barriers between man and man. It is the continual, unconscious replacement, however fleeting, of oneself by another; the real cement of human life; the everlasting refreshment and renewal.

‘Here’s a crazy idea: Persuade the world to try living in peace for just one day, every September 21. In this energetic, honest talk, Jeremy Gilley tells the story of how this crazy idea became real — real enough to help millions of kids in war-torn regions.’ (via Jeremy Gilley: One day of peace | Video on TED.com)
‘As far as we can see with our ever improving telescopes, there are at least a hundred billion galaxies arrayed throughout the universe. Each, like the Mliky Way, is an “island universe” containing billions of stars. Nearly all galaxies are members of groups or clusters, which are part of even larger structures called superclusters. All of these large concentrations are connected by filaments or sheets of galaxies, which enclose huge, bubble-like volumes of empty space, the cosmic voids.
The great unifier of the cosmos is gravity. It holds the stars of a galaxy, and the galaxies of a cluster, together. But clusters, groups, and isolated individual galaxies are all flying away from each other, a continuing aftermath of the big bang, an explosion of space itself that astronomers believe formed the universe 11 to 15 billion years ago.’
