Insight! and Info! Morality, Agriculture, and the Cosmos

"Garden of Earthly Delights"

Here are some TED talks I watched today. A variety of awesome information:

It is so interesting seeing animals behave in ways that philosophers have always imagined to be strictly 'human.' This may help shed light on the disgusting ways we treat other species, and our own. Why do we have zoos again?

This is such an important video! So many people, including myself, do not realize the effect that something as vital as agriculture has on the planet. We need to practice more efficient agriculture, and we need to act quickly. Some examples are vertical farming, buying more locally grown foods, dramatically altering our diets, and growing our food ourselves. Even in urban settings, more and more people are realizing that not only is growing their own food fun, it is healthier for themselves and for the Earth.

This is just plain cool. Its subject matter might not be practical in a physical sense, but neither is pondering existence, both of which are just plain awesome and enlightening.
