        • Radiation Filters Dave Meats Pedal


          from oliver mellan Added 52 2 1

          When Dave and Pedal meet at a humanistic alternative education institute, it is love at first sight, at least for Dave, as he and Pedal share a moment over a crown of broccoli. As Dave slips into fantasies of Pedal biting seductively into a redwood tree, she interrupts him with a vividly descriptive speech of her mission to protest the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant. The enamored Dave agrees to go along, and to take his car. Radiation Filters does not necessarily have an anti-nuclear viewpoint, but rather is pro-health, focusing on bringing healing practices to areas where radioactive contamination is a current threat to the people and the environment. The project seeks to bring awareness about the current situation regarding nuclear power and its risks and rewards as a powerful and dangerous energy source. The show explores ways in which we can not only heal, but thrive areas affected by nuclear radioactivity from power plant meltdowns. Radiation Filters is pioneering a new genre of storytelling, that of the docu-narrative, and in doing so is creating a new approach to creating culturally and environmentally relevant material that is entertaining and accessible to all ages, cultures, and creeds across the globe. Through the humor and drama of its characters, real-world situations are explored, and social and political issues relating to nuclear energy are brought to light, specifically the events surrounding the meltdown of the Fukushima Daiichi power plant in Japan. http://radiationfilters.info/

            • America and the Religion of No Religion: Or How We Got to I am Spiritual but Not Religious


              from Arizona State University Added 81 0 0

              Jeffrey J. Kripal holds the J. Newton Rayzor Chair in Philosophy and Religious Thought at Rice University in Houston, Texas. His areas of interest include the re-visioning and renewal of the comparative method in the study of religion, the comparative erotics of mystical literature, American countercultural translations of Asian religious traditions, and the history of Western esotericism from ancient Gnosticism to the New Age. He focuses on the more informal modern world of the "spiritual but not religious,” an increasingly popular orientation that Kripal calls the "religion of no religion." Kripal is a prominent advocate for including the paranormal in religious studies which he contends is an untapped source of insight into the sacred. He believes that by tracing the history of psychical phenomena through the last two centuries of Western thought we can see its potential centrality to the critical study of religion. Kripal’s lecture is part of the center’s Maxine and Jonathan Marshall Speaker Series on Religion and Conflict, which honors the lifelong commitment of Maxine and Jonathan Marshall to promoting the arts, education, civil liberties, and world peace.
