David Abram at the SEED Language of Spirit Conference


From YouTube Description:

Video presented by the Foundation for Global Humanity (http://www.f4gh.org). Albuquerque based SEED Graduate Institute has hosted a meeting of the minds between quantum physicists, Native American scholars, and linguists to discuss the underlying principles of the Universe, based on a mutual respect for their differences in worldviews. The format followed the late David Bohm’s work “On Dialogue”.

David is a cultural ecologist, philosopher and author of The Spell of the Sensuous: Perception and Language in a More-Than-Human World (Vintage, 1996) and his new book Becoming Animal: An Earthly Cosmology (Pantheon 2010). Through words and imagery, David Abram speaks fo the SEED conference and his view that a dialogue on “time” must “aim toward the present moment.” David expresses, with impassioned clarity, that “to come deeply into relationship with one another and with our world necessitates that we drop inside of time into the thick of the sensuous present…”
