Many thanks to Rob for this interview.  It was indeed enlightening.  Rob's work is imperative to the future of this planet.  In my opinion, the consequences will be horrific if we don't truly get his bottom up philosophy.  His view of bottom up power is more in line with the science that includes James Lovelock, who proposed the Gaia Hypothesis.  This hypothesis states that all of life interacts (from the bottom up, not from a top-down orchestrator) in creating a habitable planet.  Thus, if we destroy all the microorganisms of this Earth, we will die for lack of oxygen.  I like to think of the difference of top-down and bottom-up as being that of an orchestra being conducted by a man standing on a pedestal and a rock and roll band jamming. With the latter, they naturally come up with a great work of music.  The latter is more like how the world works, though the former does have his place...just that that place is not primary. 

Enjoy this transcript and the bottom-up wisdom of Rob Kall.  

H1: Welcome to "Envision This;" connecting you to visionaries of a more resilient, earth friendly, and just future. With us this evening is Rob Kall: editor, publisher, radio host, speaker, and campaign consultant who works tirelessly on behalf of all those who have been dis-empowered in our current system. Rob envisions this: politically, socially, and spiritually empowering people from the bottom up. Welcome, Rob

R: Thank you. Great to be here.

H2: Yeah and it's great to-

H1: [ss] Great to have you

H2: Great to have you-have you, especially with your busy schedule which I guess is one of the first things I'm going to ask you about. You seem to have a lot going on with OpEd News, the Bottom Up Radio Show, StoryCon and futurehealth. Could you briefly describe your working goals within each of these arenas?

R: Sure. I spend most of my time between Opednews and the Bottom Up Radio, it's Opednews .com and I, I also have a business, FutureHealth that I've had for over 30 years that is cnnected to biofeedback. I got into biofeedback because I was excited with the idea of using technology to help people to wake up, raise their consciousness, and empower themselves.  I got into Opednews because I was getting impatient. I basically started Opednews  three weeks before the Iraq War started. Colin Powell gave his talk to the UN telling us all that there were weapons of mass destruction.

H2: Ah ha I remember that

R: And I was sitting, I was running one of my conferences, he StoryCon conference and the Brain Conference and the Positive psychology conferences that I did. And I, so I was sitting in a bar at the hotel to watch the talk, and you know  my jaw dropped and I said, "He's lying!"

H1: mmm

R: He's full of it!

H2: mhhmm yeah

R: And three weeks later I had my blog Opednews up and running and this I, I, I was getting impatient with how long it was taking waking people up one person at a time with biofeedback.  I mean it helped, but I really just needed to get more political. So I gradually turned this in to that.  It's most of what I do.  StoryCon and all the conferences I run I stopped doing them and - and my last one was in February of two thousand seven.
