Google Earth Engine is a joint project between Google and NASA that allows anyone access to a 30 year time-lapse of the surface of the earth. I made a video about how amazing, terrifying, and important it is.
We’ve had an eye on Earth for several decades now, and thanks to the new tool from Google that Hank talks about in his video above, we can see our profound effect on the planet in just a single young lifetime.
He notes that we aren’t very good at reconciling data with our own, personal daily existence and the proverbial price of eggs. Maybe that’s why graphs describing the changing climate and numbers such as “400 ppm” aren’t as effective as, say, these images here?

How the Postnormal era will change everything
Organizations are becoming fast-and-loose, reconfiguring around social networks instead of business processes, becoming more decentralized and as autonomy increases, more egalitarian.
We will completely drop the pretense of objectivity — a tension that is eating away at journalism and old school media like hydrochloric acid — and accept the inherent need for partiality as the grounding of all belief.
We will belong to our networks — which are our own — and not to institutions that require us to subordinate our interests and selves.
Families will become less Leave it to Beaver and instead we’ll embrace a broad spectrum of alternative living arrangements that include the growing numbers of people who live alone but are very social, groups of friends sharing space and other intentional communities, and non-traditional families with multiple generations living together, gay and lesbian families and all sorts of extended arrangements.
The corner on the postnormal is when we actively work to build an economy that is not fueled by growth and globalism and instead is local and steady-state oriented.
Today’s political boundaries make no sense: they are the outgrowth of royal treaties, conquest, and the misuse of resources. We should start with the natural ecological unit — the watershed — and replace the notion of provinces (US states) with those. I for example, live in the Hudson River Watershed. Locale is still relevant, so people still would be tied to San Francisco, or Beacon NY. And regionalism is still meaningful, but not necessarily the way today’s borders fall. And finally, we need to consider the world and its resources as a shared commons, and not spoils to be owned by the fortunate or wealthy.
Participative media not mass media.
A major transition to restorative and sustainable relationship to the environment is essential, or we will all boil.
And a relaxing of the failed dogmas of orthodox religions, and a more taoist reorientation of our spirituality toward the enigma of life and the universe, and a greater acceptance of the myriad ways in which people might choose to express their awe and faith.
This body of work is an exploration of the extent of cultural appropriation and encourages a discussion about it. I give the appropriator and the appropriated the opportunity to defend themselves and create a dialogue between them, while maintaining a neutral stance myself. I am not attacking those who appropriate, merely educating and creating awareness. I’m also exploring appropriation myself, and discovering the carying degrees of it within this visual conversation.
I’d like to make this a long term exploration, with a lot more participants as a form of generation-wide debate. If you’d like to be photographed to add your point of view, please do not hesitate to pop me a message here or an email at email@example.com and we could work something out!

1. Hinduism was not founded by any one teacher. Buddhism was founded by Siddhartha Gautama, the Buddha. Most Hindus revere the Buddha as an incarnation of the God Vishnu, or at least as a wise and inspired teacher.
2. Hinduism is based upon the Vedas. Buddhism does not recognize these texts as scripture but many Buddhists, myself included, see them as full of wisdom and beauty and read them.
3. Hinduism can be considered theistic in having a vision of a personal God. Buddhism is pantheistic with no creator God.
4. Hinduism has the concept of an individual soul called the “Atman”. Buddhism sees all souls as one.
5. Buddhists consider the world to be full of sorrow and regard ending the sorrow as the chief aim of human life. The Hindus consider that there are four chief aims (arthas) in life which every being should pursue. They are Dharma (religious duty), Artha (wealth or material possessions), Kama (desires and passions) and Moksha (salvation.)
6. Hinduism teaches that release from birth called “Moksha”, i.e. salvation.comes from knowledge, devotion and good works. In Buddhism enlightenment. a different concept than the “salvation” of Hinduism, comes primarily from the cessation of desire.
7. Buddhism has a more formal set of clergy. Hinduism is less formal.
8. Hinduism is an individual tradition. Buddhism requires a “Sangha” or religious community and is more of a group tradition.
9. Hinduism has more formal “rituals” than Buddhism.
10. Both accept Karma and rebirth; however, they differ greatly the manner in which these concepts work in our lives.
These are some of the major and more general differences. This is not an exhaustive list. However, remember both traditions are ancient, huge and varied. There are for example sects of Hinduism which are atheistic, some pantheistic and others polytheistic or monotheistic. So, you will no doubt be able to find many exceptions to these general statements.
