Biology, like most other sciences, is used to serve the interests of the corporations. In addition to not researching areas that could be useful to humanity, it presents us with a view of ourselves as being limited and determined by our biology. This use of science stands as an obstacle to humanity. It limits us, encouraging us to accept things as they are.

But biology can allow us to more fully understand the living world around us, what is being done to it and us. We can begin to really explore who we ARE, and what is possible for us.

Dr. Ignacio Chapela, Associate Professor of Microbial Ecology at UC Berkeley asks, “What ARE the alternatives to the limited approach often placed on science?”

Dr. Chapela has been studying the impact of genetically modified plants and the misuse of science and its impact on our planet. Join us for an interesting discussion.
