About Cultural Creatives
Sherry Ruth Anderson and Paul H. Ray (authors of The Cultural Creatives: How 50 Million People Are Changing the World) gives the term "Integral Culture" to the growing subculture also referred to as transmodernism, and which he refers to as the "Cultural Creatives". They are concerned with ecological sustainability and in the case of a core group have a commitment to personal and spiritual development. More info: culturalcreatives.org

Lo And Behold: Reveries of the Connected World
Directed by legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog (Grizzly Man, Cave of Forgotten Dreams).
Theme: Stranger Than Fiction
Lo And Behold examines the past, present and constantly evolving future of the Internet - the good and the bad. Working with NETSCOUT, a world leader in-real time service assurance and cybersecurity, which came aboard as a producer and led him into a new world, Herzog conducted original interviews with cyberspace pioneers and prophets such as PayPal and Tesla co-founder Elon Musk, Internet protocol inventor Bob Kahn, and famed hacker Kevin Mitnick.
These provocative conversations reveal the ways in which the online world has transformed how virtually everything in the real world works, from business to education, space travel to healthcare, and the very heart of how we conduct our personal relationships. In the words of executive producer Jim McNiel, “It’s a journey even Werner, with his immense imagination and inquisitive mind, didn’t expect. Unless you have lived in the technology space, you don’t yet fully appreciate what dwells there.” Herzog adds: “It is one of the biggest revolutions we as humans are experiencing.”
