The Global Brain is a fantastic short documentary by Peter Russell on the awakening of human consciousness to it's inherent unity with the absolute.

The documentary begins with Peter Russell speaking about the spiritual experience of astronauts going into space who view Earth from a celestial point of view where all illusionary boundaries that keep us separated and divided dissolve ... The Astronauts experienced Earth as a living being and realized how all life in all it's multiplicity and variety is essentially a part of Gaian Consciousness, the Global Brain ...


In the book, 'The Global Brain' Peter Russell shows that humanity has reached a crossroads in its evolutionary path. The Internet is linking humanity into one, worldwide community - a "global brain". This, combined with a rapidly growing spiritual awakening, is creating a collective consciousness that is humanity's only hope of saving itself from itself. However, Russell warns if we continue on our current path of greed and destruction, humanity will become a planetary cancer.

Selling more than 100,000 copies and translated into ten languages, his seminal work, The Global Brain, won acclaim from forward thinkers worldwide. It was regarded by many as years ahead of its time, and its original predictions about the impact of computer networks and changing social values are now being realized.


Peter Russell, who holds advanced degrees in theoretical physics, experimental psychology and computer science, makes no apologies for presenting what may seem like a Utopian theory. He advises, "The image a society has of itself can play a crucial role in the shaping of its future. A positive vision is like the light at the end of the tunnel, which, even though dimly glimpsed, encourages us to step in that direction".
