At Cambridge University (UK), Peter Russell studied mathematics and theoretical physics. Then, as he became increasingly fascinated by the mysteries of the human mind he changed to experimental psychology. Pursuing this interest, he traveled to India to study meditation and eastern philosophy, and on his return took up the first research post ever offered in Britain on the psychology of meditation. In the mid-seventies Peter Russell joined forces with Tony Buzan and helped teach "Mind Maps" and learning methods to a variety of international organizations and educational institutions. His principal interest is the deeper, spiritual significance of the times we are passing through. He has written several books in this area. In the second hour, we talk about Russellís book "The Global Brain", building on Lovelock's Gaia hypothesis, he talks about how our global linking may be leading us toward an evolutionary breakthrough. We also discuss, technology, the Internet, the birth of the matrix, illusions, how to stay present and much more.
