understanding human needs


fundamentally speaking, the world is governed by the effects of human behavior.  human behavior can be thought of as being motivated by the fulfillment of the needs of individuals and groups as influenced by their experienced history.  it’s not nature vs nurture but, nature influenced by nurture.  humankind has invested a great deal of time and energy in deconstructing the effects of nurture without a clear understanding of nature.  isn’t it about time that we started to try to understand who we are and how we are motivated so that we can learn to come into balance with ourselves and each other?  the real question is, how do we get there?  lets at least start searching for the answers…

Film Screening :: HOME :: 7.4 – 21.00 :: Free Entrance

April 6, 2010

a film by Yann Arthus-Bertrand about our Earth’s Delicate Balance of Life

The film will start at 21.00 here at Skizum Studios, Wühlischstr. 12 EG rechts F-hain

“In just the 200,000 years since arriving on earth, humanity has upset the balance of the planet, established by nearly four billion years of evolution.  The price to pay is high, but it’s not too late to be a pessimist: humanity has barely ten years to reverse the trend, become aware of the full extent of its spoiliation of the Earth’s riches and change its patterns of consumption.”

This Koyaanisqatsi-like documentary film introduces us to our home, Earth, in a condensed history of the origins of life, showing us how inextricably connected all of the systems on Earth are; from the atmosphere, to the water bodies, soil and all of the vegetation and species.  With lovely aerial images sweeping across different continents, it tells the stories of different species and particularly, in the various stages of human development, how humanity has depleted resources and radically tilted the planets’ balance, in just the last 60 years.  It states that we have no choice but to have hope, recommending renewable energy and sustainable development practices among other tactics that we, the wise animals, Homo Sapiens, can employ, as we become accountable and begin taking actions to reverse this process.
