How to occupy the noosphere: TEDxVictoria 2013
Published on Dec 17, 2013
An ardent filmmaker and media activist, Ian MacKenzie is dedicated to capturing and sharing glimpses of emerging human paradigms. MacKenzie’s most recent film, Occupy Love, explores the growing realization that the dominant systems of power are failing to provide us with health, happiness, or meaning. Ian feels the resulting crisis from the 2008 stock market crash has become a catalyst for a profound awakening.
Coined by evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins in the 1970’s, the term refers to “a unit of cultural transmission” …. that requires the use of replicators to survive and evolve. Memes propagate by spreading through us – from one host to another, each time adapted, modified, and remixed.
This is the emergence. Love is the mindbomb.
