about

Dr Elisabet Sahtouris interviewed by Psychiatrist Dr Nicholas Beecroft. Elisabet Sahtouris is an internationally known Evolution Biologist. In this interview Elisabet inspires us to understand the universe as a conscious, living system. She illustrates this with examples of how the theory applies to finance, falling Western birth rates, welfare systems and medicine. She believes that we're undergoing a new Copernican revolution in science and that that represents a massive opportunity to rebalance the way we live. 

With her strong foundation in Western Science, she describes how our science is based upon civilizational assumptions which are in themselves untested but rather based upon faith. She believes that the nonliving universe based upon solely energy and matter is the basic assumption we make without knowing it and she believes that we'd be better of trying out some science based upon the assumption that we are conscious beings living interconnected in a living, conscious universe. She shows how other cultures, especially Indian (Vedic) and Islamic have other assumptions. 

She takes us down to the level of bacterial, cells, mitochondria and adenosine-triphosphate to describe the origins of life and the fundamentals of a living system which she then expands up to the level of human society and the universe. 

Internationally known as a dynamic speaker, Dr. Sahtouris is an evolution biologist, futurist, professor, author and consultant on Living Systems Design. She shows the relevance of biological systems to organizational design in business, government and globalization. She is a Fellow of the World Business Academy, an advisor to EthicalMarkets.com and the Masters in Business program at Schumacher College, also affiliated with the Bainbridge Graduate Institute's MBA program for sustainable business. 

Dr Nicholas Beecroft, a Military and Organizational Psychiatrist, has spent 25 years exploring the worlds of Medicine, Psychiatry, Business, International Relations and the Military. In the Future of Western Civilization Series, he interviews visionary leaders to discover their inspiring, positive and practical visions for the future and challenges them with incisive questions.
