326: From Disasters to Wake-Up Calls: Finding Our Light and Connection to Nature with Marcelo Gleiser

By December 12, 2023No Comments

Have you ever questioned the true impact of your actions, or even your thoughts, on the world around you?

I think we’re seeing one side of this. I don’t think any of us will deny that, as a whole, humans have lost their connection with nature.

This disconnect didn’t just begin with industrialization; its roots stretch far back in history, intertwined with the evolution of scientific thought. It’s important to remember that much of what we accept as settled science is still evolving. We’re continually discovering new, profound insights that border on the magical.

And isn’t it ironic? We’ve been conditioned to see our reality as kind of mundane, not realizing that life is really magical. We are not isolated beings fighting against the world; we are vital parts of a vibrant, interconnected web of existence.

So, how do we reclaim this magical, empowering perspective? How do we start seeing nature not as something separate but as an extension of ourselves and a reflection of the divine?

That’s what we’re talking about today.

Our guest is Marcel Gleiser. He is the Appleton Professor of Natural Philosophy and professor of physics and astronomy at Dartmouth College, a world-renowned theoretical physicist and public intellectual. He’s authored hundreds of technical and nontechnical papers and essays and six books in English translated into 18 languages. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society, a recipient of the Presidential Faculty Fellows Award from the White House, and founder and past director of the Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Engagement at Dartmouth.

We Will Learn

  • Why our disconnection with nature is more dangerous than you think, and who may be manipulating our beliefs.
  • The mysteries of empty space and the hidden dimensions that may exist right where we stand.
  • How to break the chains of insignificance and discover the untapped power within.
