A collage about the beautiful planet we are a part of, or at least it was, and some ugly beliefs both secular as well as religious that we have inherited, which helps to fuel the continued despoliation of our world. Softer music connects prose and poetry concerning these erroneous myths as well as the beauty and magic to be found, if we but look. Not meant to incite but rather to foster a spirit of recollection, clarification and appreciation for what was and what is. See more in program notes.

Advisory: Its not a fuck you thing at 7:35 by Terrence McKenna

PLEASE NOTE: Though the fallacy of the Christian tradition is showcased here it seems that all religious and major philosophical traditions have misled our relationship with our planet. Our hubris puts man in control via belief in some other worldly realm or plane and designates all other life and elemental forms as secondary and of no importance.
