Mahatma Gandhi – Peace and Truth at the Heart of Freedom

We all can agree that Mahatma Gandhi is one of the most exceptional human beings who has ever lived. His fight for freedom in the most nonviolent way imaginable is the stuff of legends, and deservingly so.

His actions have been studied for a long time and are essential knowledge we all should know. The man managed to free an entire country by relying on peace and truth only. He didn’t have to start a war, and he didn’t have to kill India’s oppressors.

Gandhi’s methods have inspired other prominent names of the 20th century like Martin Luther King Jr and James Bevel.

Albert Einstein and His Quantum Leap for Humanity

One of the greatest scientists of all time was the renowned physicist Albert Einstein. He brought us the theory of relativity, the famous formula E = mc2 which every person, from the age of ten to 110 knows.

He brought us into quantum mechanics as well. He laid that foundation on which the downright bizarre quantum mechanics was born. He couldn’t find a way to ‘finish’ quantum mechanics, but he knew that it was correct, and he knew that it could explain everything. As he said: “I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.” a quote that might explain why he never ceased to work and discover.

Rudolph Steiner – The Wisdom of the Being

The system of education we have today is filled with flaws, and it’s about time we did something to create a positive change, no matter how small or large. We need to do everything we can to create a better system for our children and all the youth of the world of tomorrow.

We want to make the people across the globe happy, and we need to do it from an early age. The problem with mainstream education today is that it doesn’t consider happiness, and it doesn’t recognize the child’s spiritual, moral, and creative side.

There are plenty of systems that want to change this, but Rudolf Steiner is the one who envisioned a unique system that genuinely incorporates the entire being, almost a full century ago.

The Teachings of Sadhguru – A Prosperous World Is at the Tip of Our Fingers

The world we live in is a world filled with problems that need fixing. There’s a lot of inequality, violence, and unhappiness. However, we should add that there is still a lot of happiness in it as well as prosperity.

Many of us have the potential to be the leaders who will change the world for the better. What we lack is pure self-awareness. That’s what Jaggi Vasudev, better known as Sadhguru, wants to teach us. His Isha Foundation was created to provide that heightened self-awareness that we all need to make a difference in the world.

How Will Immersive Technologies Leverage Human Physiology and Perceptual Realities to Enhance Experience

We all have vastly different experiences of the world. It comes from the diversity among us. Everyone experiences everything distinctly due to their unique selves, their views, skills, and a lot more.

Sometimes these differences can even reach some extremes like, for example, people who have facial dysmorphia. Their entire view of the world is different because of their condition through which they have a warped perception of their face. What these people see is next to unimaginable for people without the disorder.
