My life experiences have enabled me to have rich experiences in a broad range of fields: military officer (U.S. Army, artillery), professional sports (tennis), business (entrepreneur), politics (U.S. congressional candidate), architecture (masters degree), religion (Harvard Divinity School, masters degree), writing (numerous books), and higher education. I feel as though in one life I have lived numerous lives. This interdisciplinary journey has yielded clear, easy to understand, insights relevant to the challenges humanity faces.
Seven Words That Can Change the World, a video from a book of the same name that I wrote, explains in simple language what life requires of us in order to reverse our destructive and unsustainable momentum, end our needless suffering, prosper together, find peace, sustain humanity, and advance our civilization.
It is available, all three parts, for free viewing on Vimeo. This is Part 1 of the 3-part video. For more information visit sevenwords.org. Joe Simonetta.
The following is covered in the three parts:
A. Cosmology (the origin and structure of the universe).
B. Evolutionary biology (how long this planet, life, and we have been here, and what life has been through to get this far).
C. The world of religions (from where they have come and why).
D. Why we advance technologically easily but not so socially, politically and intellectually - we continue to destroy each other and our environment.
E. The architecture of life: a new understanding of sacredness.
F. Our competing sets of survival instincts that produce opposing world views that account for the epic struggle that goes on daily for the evolution and survival of humanity.
