History of ideas on earth and space: a new video lecture

Find 40 minutes to watch this brain-feeding video. Valorizing the Sphere is a forensic examination of the history of human ideas about how the earth relates to the rest of our solar system.

Our guide is California polymath David McConville, chair of the Buckminster Fuller Institute and principal of Elumenati, US-wide producers of educational events using projected imagery inside inflatable planetarium domes. He is speaking at the June 2014 Symposium in Montréal of the Society for Arts and Technology.

The Spaceship Earth exhibition is noted approximately 32 minutes into David’s lecture – which reveals how Bucky and other great thinkers evolved humanity’s science knowledge by questioning and exploiting earlier theories and discoveries.
