Technology and Sustainability

The discussion of this Guardian post by Jo Confino, “How technology has stopped evolution and is destroying the world” (http://www.guardian.co.uk/sustainable-business/technology-stopped-evolution-destroying-world) very much reminds me of the summary of the social criticism within the Tao Te Ching in my doctoral dissertation (pp. 417-432: http://ub-dok.uni-trier.de/diss/diss27/20010129/20010129.htm).

“The Mind Business”

If only more companies would truly make mindfulness a core of their actions! Just read a recent Financial Times article by David Gelles with the following subtitle:
“Yoga, meditation, ‘mindfulness’ – why some of the west’s biggest companies are embracing eastern spirituality”

Here is the link to the article and a comment by Dr. Shi Bisset and me:
