Dr. Bruce returns from the Amazon rainforest and opens the Burning Man 2013 talks series with “Sacred Monkey Power”, a talk about our 90 million year deep ancestry starting out on the limbs of rainforest giants. A real dragonfly graced the colorful pavillion of Sacred Spaces Village during the talk and adding to the magic. Pressing on Dr. Bruce showed how we may push back against the coiling snake of technology, the thrall of our manic monkey masters and aim our civilization for that bright crack opening to a future we all know is possible.
