Abundance & the Future

Public interest attorney Steven M. Druker, as executive director of the Alliance for Bio-Integrity, initiated a lawsuit that forced the FDA to divulge its files on genetically engineered foods. In the first half, he discussed what he considers to be the biggest scientific fraud of our age - how politically appointed administrators have covered up the warnings of their own scientists about the risks of GMO foods.

In the latter half, Rosemary Ellen Guiley, a leading expert in the metaphysical and paranormal fields, talked about nightmares and dreams, and the messages they convey.

Abundance & the Future

Show Archive
Date: Thursday - March 22, 2012
Host: George Noory
Guests: Dr. Peter Diamandis, David Essel

Appearing during the middle two hours, Chairman and CEO of the X PRIZE Foundation, Dr. Peter Diamandis, shared his research with top scientists, innovators, and captains of industry which reveals how progress is catapulting the world into a new era of abundance. While society tends to focus on negative news stories, and the idea that the world has grown worse over the years, we forget about the great advancements that have been made during the last century, he said. For instance, human lifespan has more than doubled, the average income for every person on the planet (adjusted for inflation) has more than tripled, and the cost of food has dropped 13 fold.

Demonstrating his notion of abundance, his book cover is pictured in aluminum-- a metal once thought to be quite rare and valuable, but now considered plentiful and disposable. In 2010, 2 billion people were connected to the Internet, but by 2020 that number will have risen to 5 billion-- "these are new minds plugging into the global economy," and more geniuses will be discovered wherever they might be, he declared.

He outlined some of the amazing new technology and inventions that are coming down the pike, which could greatly improve humanity's situation: Dean Kamen's "Slingshot" technology can transform any type of liquid into pure drinking water for less than one cent per liter, urban "vertical farms" could replace traditional agriculture and eliminate transportation costs, and a medical "tricorder" type device would put the emphasis on preventative and predictive health care before people get sick. Diamandis also talked about his involvement in the Zero G Corporation, which provides flights in which passengers experience weightlessness.

The last hour of the show featured Open Lines.

Setting Goals

First hour guest, motivational speaker David Essel talked about setting and achieving positive goals. He suggested that people write down their goals to bring them into the physical world, as well as seek out unbiased feedback to determine if a specific goal is realistic. He further recommended that people pick out the one goal that they've denied, delayed, or procrastinated the most about, and just focus on that singular issue. "If we could go after that one with all the energy we could muster, after a short period of time our whole entire life would start to improve," he stated.
