Mothers of Invention:
While the men were out hunting,
Stone Age women created a future

Anthropologist Olga Soffer and James M. Adovasio, director of the Mercyhurst Archaeological Institute in Pennsylvania, say that contemporary scientists paint a different picture of the Paleolithic past: labor division by sex and age is a relatively new human invention. Stone Age humans pretty much did the same jobs. However, when the women did remain behind, they spent much of their time inventing the tools and foundations of future society. To be sure, subsequent cultures would develop and define roles by gender. Adovasio’s point is that when prehistoric women stopped doing the same jobs as men, they became engaged in activities that were not only just as important, but perhaps fundamental to the transformation of human culture.

Alex GreyInterview with visionary artist Alex Grey

Alex Grey, a visionary artist living in New York City, is powerfully motivated by love. Originally an atheist, a mystical rebirth transformed his life. Since that awakening he has worked continually to express humanity’s spiritual potential in artwork that shows how the aetheric body interfaces with the physical, and to visually depict the web of light that connects us all to divinity. Alex boldly translates his vision and philosophy into action, and personally illustrates how we can create realities that we want to live in and share it others. His creations brilliantly intone the ancient truth: artistic expression can act as a force of healing and positive change for the world.
