The Global Brain is a 1983 documentary that presents the “Gaia Hypothesis.” This video was taken from Peter Russell’s book of the same titled, which was published in 1982. The Gaia hypothesis is comprised of delicate regulating system between living and non-living things. Everything on this planet is interconnected with each other, making planet Earth a self-regulated living organism.
The moving audio-visual presentation aims to encourage people to find alternative ways to co-exist with other life forms without ruining the fragile balance that make up Earth. The short clip searches for an answer to author Russell’s question in his book, “if Earth is a collective, self-regulating living organism, what then is the potential of humanity as seen through the eyes of the planet?”
