Charles Mallet, from the heart of crop circle country in England, is in my film, “What On Earth?” For years, he operated the Silent Circle, which was the crop circle hangout. This goes a long way to helping people get it that crop circles are for real.

I was in love with Leonard Cohen. The only thing on my bucket list was to meet him. When I contacted him, in 1995, he was a Buddhist monk in a monastery. He said, “Thank you for inviting me to make a brief statement that can help launch you in your ‘highest vibration.’ (I can’t find whatever new age gush I had sent his way…ST) Please excuse me from this effort. I can’t locate any high vibrations but I admire those who can. If you can find anything in my past work that resonates with the excellence you seek, please feel free to use it. We are all traveling together but forgive me if I lag behind just this once.”

“What is the best way to make this line shorter?” The Zen teacher queried her students, as she drew a straight line with a piece of chalk on a board. “Simple,” one person said, “Just erase some of the line at the top or the bottom.” The Zen teacher shook her head. “Then erase some of the line in the middle,” said another student. The master shook her head again. “Here is the best way to make this line shorter,” and she took the same piece of chalk, and drew a much longer line next to the one already up there.
I share this story because it says a lot to me about our relationship to technology. Technology is like the first line. It is here and not going anywhere.
In fact, it will become increasingly enticing … games will be become more graphically pleasing, social media will know even better how to engage us and keep our attention, Artificial Intelligence & Augmented Reality will create extraordinary worlds for us to visit.
But there is another line. The second line in this situation is our consciousness, our awareness.
This is the opportunity of our time: Can we develop such quality of heart, such an understanding of ourselves, that the most amazing, luring, enticing tools are just that, tools?
