“The Talisman”. Interview with Mythologist Willi Paul by Derek Joe Tennant,

As the holidays go on this season, I can’t help but feel the need to create new holiday traditions. I not only want to enjoy some of the treats provided by the Christian tradition, but also from other traditions like Pagan, Hindu, and Jewish holiday traditions. Not only do I have the desire to participate, but also the desire to stir up the positive messages of these age-old religions. 23 years of celebrating the same tradition has sparked the inspiration to articulate the values to be learned during the seasons.

I want to go beyond wishing for a White Christmas, or hearing Santa come down from the rooftop. Now is a time for the anthem of wishes to become the anthem of needed actions. Now is the time to support local stores, build needed structures, to have inclusive love, and access to health for the present and future. The importance of reflection is one value that has been slowly buried by the out-dated chaos of our culture. Perhaps the time provided by our newly created holidays will be bi-weekly versus every couple of months and be transparent with the strategy to “power up” not just our economic infrastructure but also our social and environmental infrastructure.

Willi Paul expresses this exact need in his interview with Derek Joe Tennant along with all of his other posted works. Visit for more info!

Just before his death Joseph Campbell was interviewed by Bill Moyers and that interview was later turned into the documentary, “The Power of Myth.” In this interview he postulated the idea that humanity was in need of new mythologies. Ones that were not rooted in the ancient world as all our current ones are. But myth’s that would help us navigate this new and strange world we are creating.”

The Future of Biophotovoltaics

The Future of Biophotovoltaics

In America’s race to search for sustainable energy, research scientists are looking toward the energy released in the process of photosynthesis as our future power source. Vertical spaces, from houses to skyscrapers, and horizontal spaces, from open land to oceans, could set the stage as the potential biophotovoltaic centers that power our communities. Imagination and innovation meet again to produce a scientific wonder as a step into a future run on plants.
