Our journey to liberty from the draconian money system has already begun and many more people are joining every day. Michael Tellinger expounds upon the financial systems of the world which have locked us into being a part of its obedient labor force. Simply put, money does not liberate, it gets in the way of people realizing their dreams. If money is such a tool of enslavement, then the only thing we can do is get rid of money, and he has a plan to do just that. This presentation was originally webcast April 11, 2016.

I must say that I am really enjoying this series , but I disagree on the money. In today's global economy how do you apply Ubuntu idea? The problem is not the money, money is a medium of exchange, money is a tool designed to make our lives easier. We are NOT enslaved by corporations. McDonald's cant force me to pay them money. Who can force me to give my money? Governments are group of people who have the legal right to initiate force. Government = force. That is the reason why corporations are Lobbying governments so they can use the power of government to enforce their agenda on the rest of us.
The answer to all your questions is Freedom. For example In the free market environment you'll have multiple currencies competing for the trust of the people.If the people see that the currency is used for something they don't like they can switch to use another currency and first one will lose value. The money have value only because people believe that it has value.
Search Voluntarism, a free society where all interactions are voluntary.

I have been thinking this for so long, but I had no idea there was an organized movement by people who believe this too! Thank you Michael for coming on Gaia so I could find Ubuntu - the philosophy, the group, the movement, the political party, the people : )

daniel.durba, posted on May 2, 2016

Let's say an election is won. We get our UBUNTU going... How long do you think the Powers will let it go unchecked? I'll tell you. Until that municipality is filled to capacity with migrants who wanted a better life. Then the Powers, using politicians on a higher level, like governor, will Target-tax the UBUNTU towns and drive up all their taxes, forcing them to raise the prices on the goods they compete with so that they can no longer undercut the surrounding industries. Or the Powers will blanket tax a whole state and use the media to plant lies like "We have to do this to everybody because the UBUNTU towns are making us." Meaning they will plant in the minds of the public that we don't want to pay our share, so now everyone has to pay more. Meanwhile if the UBUNTU towns are working like they should be, the surrounding towns were already facing higher unemployment due to UBUNTU being able to sell goods so cheap that their places of employment couldn't compete. They will inspire resentment in the other towns. And that will cause violence. ...Or they come in one day and "WACO, TX" the community to the ground and spread lies about it being a cult just like the did in 1992.

I want this to work, but we should be cautious in our approach if we want to succeed. There's no limits to the Power's control and ability to plant horrible lies in people that they then believe.

What are the 13 problems?
And, do you have any ideas for solving them?

daniel.durba, posted on April 26, 2016

The 13 are all over the seminars on YouTube and the answers are all real simple. It's not the issue. It's people's preconceptions of what the ubuntu movement stands for that is the real issue. The 13 problems aren't problems once you grasp the concept of ubuntu

The most broken part about it is that you haven't a chance if you don't have a lot of money to pump into it. Oh look, there's money again.....

niccolo.angeli, posted on April 16, 2016

That's exactly how UBUNTU works: usign money to change the game, investing big sum of money into small communities that can become auto-sufficient and at the same produce something, like a common project where everyone contributes, thus producing more than what they need and producing abundance.

Well, is much more rich, fascinating and complex than this, If you are interested I suggest you take a look at the e-book that you can buy and download on http://shop.ubuntuplanet.org/product/ubuntu-contributionism-ebook/ , i found it being very detailed on possibile solutions, really fascinating subject!

I learned a long time ago that just because someone can accurately tell you what is wrong, doesn't mean that their solution is correct. I agree with Michael about what's wrong with our current banking, education, corporate and legal systems. Then Michael admits that just shifting from private corporate banks to state banks owned and controlled by the people will free the people. I agree. That means money isn’t the problem.
Secondly, his story about the circulation of the $100 bill is a mind trick. The fact that he pays money to someone and then later in the day someone else pays him some money and he ends up with the same amount he started with doesn’t mean that money is meaningless. What it means is that money has facilitated all of those people in the story getting what they wanted. Now let’s imagine that same sort of story without money:
Man A. “Hey, plumber, my toilet’s overflowing and there’s crap all over the floor. Can you come and fix my toilet?”
Man P. “Well, have you tried using a plunger?”
Man A. “Oh yeah, plunger and a plumbing snake too.
Man P. “Yeah, well you may need to take the whole system apart to see what’s wrong with it.”
Man A. “Well, I don’t know how to do that, will you do it for me?”
Man P. “Well, I don’t feel like dealing with a lot of smelly crap and stuck pipes in tight spaces in the heat right now. Hey, you know what I’ve always wanted to do is paint. Do you want to see my paintings? I’m working on a great picture of a sunset right now?”
I could go on and on with this. A man wants an additional room added to his house. Where’s he going to get the wood, the nails, people who feel like putting in a lot of hard days work before the rains start? “Well, you can borrow my saw. I think there’s still some trees about 20 miles from here you can cut down.” And: “No, I don’t want to work on your house. What I really love doing is playing video games and watching porn.”
The point is, abundance comes from work. If people aren’t rewarded for their work, they might rather play. If this isn’t already apparent to you, just do a you a search for: “Porn and video game addiction leading to 'masculinity crisis', says Stanford psychologist.” He’s not the only one talking about this.

The answer to your scenario is in his book. He has spent 1000's of hours dealing with and debating with people on this topic and finally had to put it all in a book.

Your scenarios have been put to Michael many times and answered many times.

If he wants to get anything accomplished, he can't be answering each and every individual who asks the same questions or presents the same problematic scenarios.

I suggest you buy his book. It is a small price to pay for all his time and effort and if you truly want to find out if what he is suggesting has merit.

I believe it does. Nothing will get accomplished if we sit back and do nothing and not even try or test the possibilities. If problems DO arise, there WILL BE a solution. That is just how it all works if we but try.

Addictions stem from a broken, insane paradigm where people find either pain or no satisfaction in living in an insane world, I don't blame many for wanting to "escape." People aren't inherently lazy. If they know that they must do something to eat, they will do it. If they feel they are valued they will care and will be motivated.

I can tell, intuitively, that Michael is not here trying to win fame, popularity or for any personal gain.

I am truly not here to debate you either. All I can say is "Just get his book." You can also go to the website and search for your answers.

thequestess, posted on April 15, 2016

Addictions come from pain and are an attempt to escape that pain. They are not our nature.
Does half of the world drink every night, or binge-watch TV instead of doing something they're supposed to because they're prone to addiction? No, they're trying to escape some level of pain and exhaustion.

If people grew up with what they needed, they would be in a much better state that probably wouldn't be addicted to things. And the reason people grow up without what they need is because it's not available. It's not available either because someone else is hoarding it, or because that other person is also in pain and isn't able to give that person the love and support that they need.

Often, people in pain don't have a good way out of their pain - they're lost and alone. If they were able to access the help they truly needed (like healthcare, food, shelter) then they can begin to break free of their addiction, soothe their pain, and therefore have more to give. Learn to connect to people and to share love. Learn to not be isolated anymore.

People are innately driven by their passions, sense of accomplishment, sense of ownership, and sense of community. The only reason people don't want to pursue their passions is because they're being forced to do something that sucks their soul dry (apparently: a painter who's pretending to be a plumber), or they have some other form of pain that's blocking them.

But when you add community back in, and a sense of ownership of our accomplishments, the picture is very different:
"I don't know how to do that, can you help me?"
"Well sure, I'd be glad to help you out because I know you and we share a community, so I care about you. And I know that in return, you'll be able to help me out when I need it. But please, can you clean up the crap first, because honestly, that's really disgusting. I have some tools you can use to make that part easier, here."
"Oh hey, no problem. It won't be fun, but I'm just thankful you're going to help me get my plumbing fixed. It's the least I could do, and thanks for letting me use your tools!"

Last winter we had a massive windstorm that knocked trees down all over. Many tree services were taking advantage and charging people $2000 to remove a fallen tree (money). The lowest we could find was $900. Well, we didn't have that kind of money, and really it's more like a $300 job to clear away a downed tree, especially since the city dump was taking free dropoffs of all of the storm debris.

After the city cleared the top of the tree from the street, the rest of it sat forever. We didn't have the tools to take care of it, and we didn't entirely have the knowledge. Then, one day, my 73 year old neighbor came by and tells us he's retired and bored and he'd like to clear the tree for us. He says he has all of the tools and he wants something to do, so he'll do it completely for free.

We talk him into at LEAST letting us make him a plate of cookies. He reluctantly agrees.
But later, when we're chatting with him, one of the times he's over, he asks what we do for a living and we say we're in tech. Then he starts telling us about how his home internet isn't working right, so we offer to go over there and check it out sometime.

The same man, some 40 years ago, knew our old neighbor, who has since passed away. The two of them used to help each other work on their houses. This guy knows people all over the neighborhood, and sometimes the electrician down the street would do his wiring while he installed a window for the electrician, or the plumber would install a toilet for him while he helped him pour a foundation for an addition on the plumber's house.

That's how a community without money works. And it's a beautiful thing.
Sadly, it's a dying thing, because everyone is overworked and no one knows their neighbors anymore. We've become so isolated and exhausted, and so very much of it is because we're being enslaved by the corporations we work for/sell our souls to.

I enjoyed the earlier episodes, especially about the generally unrecognized power of sound.

As of today, I've watched two hours--four episodes--of you passionately banging on about the elimination of money. This is a plan to completely overhaul global society, and yet I haven't heard one specific from you about how you see this all working.

Beyond money, how do you propose to eliminate from the system all the people who are wired to seek control above all else? The Buddhists call this condition "controlled by the 3 Poisons." They are, avarice (greed), anger (fear), and lack of wisdom. We all have a dose of the 3 Poisons. However for some percentage of humanity, the 3 Poisons are driving the bus. No one likes being a slave, but there are people love being slave owners. Some see it as their life mission. What to do about them?

Specifics, Michael! How does "Contribution-ism" differ from all the other failed "isms" that have come before? How does it deal with the human propensity to act in evil ways?

Your plan seems to pivot on access to "free energy." Great. I'm all for that. We all know it's possible, or we sense that it is. But until we can download the files to build a device on our own 3D printers, the control will still rest with those who supply energy.

I enjoy your passion. Give us specifics. I wish you had gone into sound in more depth.

thequestess, posted on April 15, 2016

I think part of how Michael's plan works is that it includes communities, and that is a part of human psychology that changes how we act. When we feel a part of a community, we tend to treat the people in that community better because we have come to care for them and to understand them and their unique situations. Also, communities are better able to offer love, which reduces the amount of pain, fear, and isolation. We become more prone to sharing, less prone to hoarding. We become less fearful, because we know we have our community there to help us.
You can see this as you look at how our society used to be, back when we were more connected to each other and felt more of a sense of community, versus what it's turning into as we grow more and more isolated from each other.

But, I'd love to hear specifics from Michael too.
I do wonder if we were to get the Ubuntu book, if it has specifics in it. He seemed to imply that this series was an overview of sorts.

it's just fantastic, I am reading it in these days and it completely blew my mind. It just makes total sense and it shows us how mind-programmed we are.
We are taught to think about anything in terms of money and we freak out when these pieces of paper or digital numbers are not in the equation, but it's just a well-decorated illusion.
That being said, I am sitting here giggling for new sales, digital numbers in my paypal account... one 0 more or less and your state of consciousness shifts completely, it's just crazy how we are just sleeping sometimes :-#

Help me show fishermen around the country how to use beads to assemble DocSet fishing Rigs.
Following is a letter to my favorite fishing professional.
To: Mike Ieconelli
My given name at birth, is Doc. I hope to share a great story behind the name with you someday. In the late 70's thru the early 80's I was guiding for several Trout Fishing Resorts on the Norfork and White rivers about 20mi. south of Mountain Home, Arkansas. There is a small cafe in a beautiful Native Stone structure just past the first bend on Hwy 5 in downtown Norfork. Their home cooked breakfast was fit for a King and Fishing Guides. After breakfast each morning it's off to the boats arriving in time to grab Ice, bait, and ready to go by 7:00am. I absolutely loved it. I would watch fish feed for hours and hours, day after day in the crystal clear water of both rivers. It was there I discovered a common denominator in most of the food they were eating. I call it "Natural Drift" and have devoted a lot of my time lately trying to figuring out a way to duplicate this phenomenon. The "Docset" fishing method was spawned from those thoughts. There are many variations to the method allowing a fisherperson to incorporate it to whatever kind of fishing rigs you may already be using. I also believe this drifting of your lure triggers a genetic response in fish causing them to strike! Creating these revolutionary methods took a combination of hunting, fishing. trapping,pilot skills and Quantum Physics. It works on all species of fish and I believe these methods will be the next generations "Holy Grail" too fishing. Adding drift to a "Drop Shot" rig is easy and extremely effective. First you need to understand that mankind has been using beads for thousands of years. And this method does just that. DO NOT tie the hook to the end of your line as we have all been taught traditionally. This eliminates any arguments on which knot is the best, how to tie it. and when it's going to fail. Instead, you will be trapping the lure/hook between two beads located at your predetermined depth. The distances between beads is how far you want the bait to fall in it's Natural Drift, then continue to the bottom weight. Sometimes I'll add a rattle or bell to the sinker. For all you pilots, adding Dockset Methods to fishing is like adding flaps on final approach. They both allow for a better angle of attack while descending. Mankind has been using beads for various indigenous arts and crafts for thousands of years. A thought came to mind while assembling my first Docset Texas Rig... Are these methods 2000 years old and only just now being rediscovered? Give me a call sometime when you want to talk to a flying fish,

there is only one problem with contribution-ism ! Evil ! How do you go about removing evil. If you find a way to remove evil, ANYTHING will work. Capitalism is perfect. Communism is perfect. On paper. Once you introduce humans, evil is introduced. At that point EVERITHING fails. Capitalism fails, communism fails and, contribution-ism will fail ! It seems that no one is addressing the humanevil !! Religion tried, but IT failed cuz its run by humanevil. The only solution, I see, was proposed by the movie Noah, where the human element was needed to be removed for the creation to be saved !!! Pray to the creator for the removal of the human element and all will be well with creation !!!!!

I don't know how this applies, but I find it curious that the English word, EVIL, is the word LIVE spelled backwards. And, also, MT's speaking about the wording of SA Constitution Preamble and stessing the words BELIEF and BELIEVE - within both these words is the word LIE. Be careful . . . be very careful how you express yourself because the very words, themselves, possess powerful creative energy.

We live on a planet that is a living being. In reality, we don't own the land. The native people are aware that the land they live on is to be respected and honored.
Maybe drawing in the Elders from tribes can bring about valuable discussions on the best ways for establishing communities where people can exchange the
services that they need. Ubuntu: Contributionism is an excellent start. The idea of being open to new ways living "without money", is like taking "the road less traveled", you never know what's around the next bend.

Michael is correct. All one needs do is start thinking about the domino effect of eliminating money. Is Bernie Sanders the first step in the US towards a new system? People created money and the money system, not God.

cool_hka, posted on April 11, 2016

Another amazing episode! You gave me a much clearer perspective on it all! We don't need money at all! Nature creates in abundance (1 fruit, many seeds, many trees). For example if we removed money overnight and everyone got what they want for free, a person would go to the store to get free food, the store would get free supplies from the manufacturer or distributor, and they would get it free from the farmer that got it free and in abundance from nature. NO MONEY NEEDED! With no money, everyone would get taken care of and everyone will have all their needs met!

bancergail81, posted on April 11, 2016

I believe communities with people that are Service to Others can create communities based on cooperation, unity, and the principle of " if its good for one its good for all". These communities can then grow and prosper, live in abundance and harmony. Communities that have people that are Service to Self create a hierarchy of domination with a pecking order where those on top create slavery for the majority and then live off them. According to Law of One, both are valid in 3rd and 4th Density, and by 5th Density or sooner the Service to Self types eventually evolve and choose Service to Others. The problem on Earth is that the Service to Self Types on the top are persuading people to adopt this perspective by using money as a tool to enslave others and this system brings out greed, fear, and control. So the problem is not just the system of money, although money magnifies the negative qualities in people, its this Service to Self Orientation. How do we isolate and contain this type of Entity so it can no longer do harm to others?

This Ubuntu is a good concept but appleid to our giving to others like volunteering, giving clothes, foods, cars etc but The Bible speaks of money so God created the word and the concept. It isays the love of money is evil. Money does not enslave us it is our sins. It is good for the reward of people for bettering themselves. It is good to accumulate much money to leave to kids, grand kids as it is part of our showing of love that outlives us. Money is love expressed. Otherwise our works are momentary and do not live past our life. What of the hospital, the statues, the bridges etc done in the name of a famous dr. This concept of no money is really not realistic. True without money less crimes would be committed over things. It is the duty of society to impress proper respect of people, ie no abortions, people property, hwo would you get a home with 0 money? Money makes the world fluid in movement of values. with no money values will not flow freely and the world will stagnate. The complexity of the life of this world will be tribal, not the complex instruements our lives are with money. Banks should not be fractional as when Nixon stopped the backing of gold in 1971. Value must have a real backing. Today the Fed reserve prints up what it needs but you and I cant and they can manipulate the supply or a whole economy and take back from those that borrowed for real goods like their home because the economy ran by them went south. That is evil. Michael's shows are great very great but the final analysis is so flawed.

The comments clearly show how well we have been indoctrinated. The lack of imagination and simple understanding, because our ego's and emotions all to often are what still rules our behavior. We have a long way to go but the trip is well worth it!
For you Canadians out there, Canada is one of the few nations that still owns their central bank, The Bank of Canada, however this bank refuses to lend us money!! Our current PM Mr. "sunny ways" talks about a infrastructure Bank because he's not allowed to mention the BOC! His father was the one responsible for crippling our (Canada) banking system 1974.

Your information on the history of money, your research on bankers, is truthful. But, I am not sure that you are aware that you are promoting Communism. I am sure you are aware that mankind, or womankind, if you will....... has proven over and over again throughout history that we are not" innately good". Even communism will not work, because, at the end, someone or some system, must step away and allow the structure to survive on it's own. And, again, throughout history, we have never been able to do that!
I think there were a few emperors of Rome that stepped aside, and I believe George Washington also did.(but, he did that fully aware that he was creating a corporation!), These few examples of the "innate goodness" of our species, proves that our species is not capable of what you talk about. Even if you completely revamped our current way of life, which is a very sweet thought, and, even if all people were aware of the One Source and our universal connection, evil will always lurk around.

thequestess, posted on April 15, 2016

But he's not promoting communism. Communism is based in money, first off, but secondly, it's based in a government that takes things. Contributionism is based in small communities that choose to give things (no trade, no take).

As to "innately good," I personally disagree with you. I think that a lot of humanity's bad behavior comes from trauma, pain, isolation, and fear. If people were living in loving communities and had access to healthcare, food, and shelter, a lot of bad behavior would go away.

In history, old history, small history, tribes have survived and thrived well. Contributionism is based on a tribal model. It was only when we brought in these newfangled control systems and money, moving away from the tribal system (isolating ourselves), that things started to fall apart and become corrupted.

But yes, "evil" will always lurk, because evil is actually just people with karma refusing to confront it. However, as we are able to move forward and help people to heal and support them as they face their karma/fears, there will be less "evil."
There are, of course, some mental illnesses that can cause "evil," but most of those illnesses are programmed-in, based on trauma in the current life and/or past lives. There are not very many 100% genetic cases of mental illness that causes evil people (if any at all). Besides, trauma and life experiences actually affect our DNA too.

So, as the new forms of medicine continue to come in (I'm including energy healing in this), if they are made accessible to people, people can begin to heal. Couple that with nurturing our human need to have connection, community, and love, and you may find that suddenly "human nature" is a very good one.

Recommend watching the above Video available on You Tube entitled "The Crime of the Canadian Banking System" - Bill Abram, updated Dec 30, 2011

I know that "Bank of America" was once the "Bank of Italy" and was run by the mob. I think the "Bank of Canada" may have been a part of the same origin.

It's a great illustration of where our mega-banks came from. :-)

As a retired Registered Nurse I have witnessed firsthand how money as it applies to healthcare simply does not work. This is a matter of great importance because the healing arts and sciences should be just that and not tied down to some business model and a bottom line. To assign a price tag to matters concerning health and wellness seems sacrilege to me and I cry over the fact that people who need help and care are refused because they do not have insurance or a way to cover the costs of healthcare. Those of us who are in the healing professions and have a sincere and proven dedication to helping the sick and dying should not have to think about how our own bills and other living expenses are paid at home. I have thought in the past that as healthcare workers we should have our basic living expenses covered by a fair system or a people's bank where we can get our needs met in terms of housing or food and with these things out of our immediate worry, we are then freed up to be able to serve as healthcare workers better.

Another point to make as to why money and healthcare do not mix is that health has to do with the universal energy within all of life called chi or ki. This energy is from God in infinite supply and does not cost anything and has nothing to do with money.

We need a caring revolution and like the post below, I agree we need to value the work that women do as homecare workers, mothers, wives, and women in the so-called female centered careers like nursing, schoolteachers, and social workers because we are often over-stressed, not paid attention to and doing too much at home and at work and this is a formula for burnout and depression. Health and wellness begins with treating them as important instead of being brushed aside and treated as not important.

I agree with Michael saying money is in the way, it keeps us from acting from our hearts.

I feel the same way. Not only that, sick people can't earn money very well... so it's like they're stuck in a catch-22. Can't get well so they can earn money, can't pay to get well because they can't earn money.

I view healthcare as a basic human right, and like food and shelter, everyone should have access to it. When our basic needs are taken care of, we're better able to contribute back to the system (which in capitalism means get a job and work and buy stuff).
I also believe all forms of healthcare should be accessible, not just physical, conventional healthcare.

Money is also in the way of medical research, which is inhibiting us from doing the best we can to help people be the healthiest they can be.

Still like utopism. Yet have same concerns. About communism and the greed that made that imossible to function. Have had similar thoughts about healing and therapies. As trained in several tecniques (of cousre for heaps of money), I somehow feel not good about all the need I come across from people that can't afford treatment. Feel bad to charge somebody for being human. it's all so wrong.Would like to knowe 13 questions Michael mentioned. (what a number!)
I've hered of us being just a kind of currency. As someone told the story of someone who wanted to investigate on this personally. That person found the account and payed some amount in. Yet, that person got in bad trouble for wanting to know. Got arrested and probably brainwashed or thretend, after release did not talk about any of that, or waht happened anymore..... So it can be dangerous to private persons with no support.
Admiration for Michael! Like David probably the fact that he's known and he's dear and true nature protects him?

we will have a vote in near future about unconditional payment (don't know the therm in English), the idea is to provide every person in country with a (rather small) amount of income for free. The amount would barely, if at all cover livingcosts in our country, yet would take a lot of pressure off of people with low income, or none. The idea is of course many aspects: give to improve consumation, and more important, to enable people to be more creative, have more options to form new ways of living, to maybe have more space to crate new socialstructures..
Probably it's not going to be voted for realisation yet, at least it's talked about! Maybe that would be a way to come closer to firness and new more human thinking? We face here in Europe lot of problems, with all those refugees with no education, all those elderly demented people, healthcare that is not as fair as seems, and in our 'rich' county people with low income have barely the chance to live healthy! ....

Of couse nobody talkes loud enough about that in polictics, as the polititians have to run a buiseness, where people are just numbers and the money has to be made!! They all live in moreor less fancy homes - what do they care about the others...

To me its so shameful how people act in higher places. Fences, refugees get sent back, like they were some things.. All just numbers and fears.. Of course the stability of countries have to be maintained, yet I wonder how i'd feel when my home country 'd be bombed. To me it seems holocaust has just gotten more subtile and new ways of living and socialstructures are at stake.
- Wonder Michael are your teachings and ideas available in german too? As many europeans can't understand English. I'd like your teachings being spread everywhere!!!!So that some progress is made as fast as possible. True, education!! is key, we need to have a good vision and understandig of what and how it could be possible.. A side thougt of mine about tradeing. Humans love to play and indians also traded, but were not that evil in greed. May be with peoplesbanks and unconditional income there would be a chance to start? As i do not see people getting all so human. The ones with lots and plenty of money have probably no interest of losing it, and others slaves have the old idea so imprinted in the system of belive and body, wonder how to manifest utopia...

I want to do some research here because it used to be that all public financed infasturure used to be repaid a )% interest and the reason we have to charge interest now is because all the other private world back are boating the Cank of Canada into it.

Any thought here from anyone??

I completely agree, Michael, with your analysis of the monetary system, and I thank you for your hard work in promoting the Ubuntu system. I'm rather surprised, however, that as someone who shows such insight into our world's monetary-slave deception you would use such a distastefully sexist example in your $100 billl story. All of the characters in the story are male with regular respectable professions. The one female character that you do include is a prostitute. Is this how people view professional women in South Africa? Your country must be considerably more sexist and limited than North America. Are you not aware, Michael, that it is the imbalance between masculine and feminine energies within us all as individuals as well as externally in society that has allowed our predatory monetary system to develop in the first place? A society in which women (and feminine attributes such as compassion and nurturing) are valued equally to men (and masculine competition and achievement) would never fall into the Babylonian monetary trap. Sexist socialization insidiously keeps us out of balance and perpetuates our slavery. All of us, men and women, need to tune in more to our feminine/yin energy, and as we do so we will help create the shift to a heart-centered, power-with rather than power-over society that is waiting just around the corner.

You are so right - and I didn't catch it until you pointed it out. I did, however, feel a dissonance when he got to that part of the story. On another program here on gaiam, an experiment was mentioned that showed women and men- have a just slightly 'off-kilter' hearing of what the other is communicating. This was done in an experiment between a man and a woman each communicating in a simple sentence to the other, and an observer meticulously transcribing the words exactly. It proved the point eloquently, was slightly amusing and somewhat depressing.

Again, as interesting as Ubuntu is, I would still like to finish learning about sound and resonance before moving on to a new subject. PLEASE! and THANK YOU!
