Bruce Lipton: The Paradigm Shift

A really great interview with Bruce Lipton, biologist and pioneer of epigenetics and author of The Biology of Belief. He explains how we're in the middle of the sixth great extinction and how we need to use this crisis to evolve. Just like another of the great thinkers of our time, Peter Joseph, founder of the Zeitgeist Movement, has said, it is the obsolete economic system that has to go as it is destroying the biological support systems of the planet.

He talks about the fact that we are undergoing an evolution in consciousness and like Peter Joseph he emphasises that the key to our survival as a species is to abandon the outdated Darwinian strategy of survival of the fittest and replace it with one of cooperation and collaboration with the understanding that we are all one organism, to use biological terminology.

One lovely part is where he says that Donald Trump is doing a wonderful job, but not the job he thinks he's doing! Lipton says that Donald Trump's job is to destroy the system because the system is the problem. He says he hates to see some of the things that Trump is destroying such as the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). I disagree because the research I have done into that agency has shown it to be corrupt just like the FDA and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) all of which have revolving doors to industry. This corruption is reflected to a greater or lesser degree in the governments and agencies of other countries. Just like Joseph, Lipton says that the current system cannot be fixed. He says that the way it is structured means that it cannot create anything sustainable.
