In this dialogue series, Brother Wayne Teasdale and Ken Wilber discuss the advent of an integral mysticism in the postmodern world. Reflecting on their own spiritual experiences, the relation of science to spirituality, the lives of the great inter-spiritual pioneers, and how youth culture is revitalizing the mystical traditions, Brother Wayne and Ken show how an integral perspective can bring the revelations of mysticism into everyday life. In so doing, we learn to give fullest expression—as parents and professionals, students and seekers—to the Mystic Heart in each of us. If, as historian Arnold Toynbee put it, the introduction of Buddhism into the West “may well prove to be the most important event of the 20th century,” we might also argue that the re-discovery of the contemplative roots of Christianity will be equally important. And as we enter the 21st century, it stands to reason that the recognition of a common mystical ground between Buddhism, Christianity, and the other World Religions will be the most important event of all.

A tribute to Germanys coolest opossum. A new addition to the Leipzig Zoo has yet to be seen by the public, but that hasn’t stopped her from becoming a star. Heidi, a young cross-eyed opossum, is shaping up to be the most popular furry critter in Germany since Knut the celebrity polar bear. She won’t be visible to the public until July, but a cross-eyed opossum has turned into Germany’s new media darling. The reason for Heidi’s crossed eyes is unclear, but zoo officials speculate that it might be because of fat deposits behind her eyes, caused by a bad diet early in life. The eyes might look off, but they cause the animal no pain, and don’t affect her ability to get around, according to the zoo. She is, aside from her looks, a normal opossum. Hot news! Officials at Leipzig Zoo, where Heidi lives, say she will appear on the “Jimmy Kimmel Show” on the US network ABC on Oscars night.

An extended cinematic trailer from last year’s E3 for Huxley, the upcoming MMOFPS by WebZen for the Xbox 360 and PC. The game follows the story of a troubling future where Earth is crippled by war and natural disasters in the wake of a world-wide cultural shift brought about by genetic engineering and biological modification. You see humanity eventually modified themselves so much that they became split into sub-races that scarcely resembled original humans, which inevitably leads to a biblical level of racial prejudice and hatred. Two main sub-races, the Sapiens and the Alternatives, wage an all out war for their own survival, as well as to control the planet for themselves. Among the other remnants of humanity are various species of dangerous, feral mutants that only make things mor complicated for the Sapiens and Alternatives. Here a group of Alternatives is battling a nest of Hybrids, apparently provoked to attack them by the Sapiens. The cinematic is rendered with the same engine as the in-game graphics.
