About Me

WHAT I'M ALL ABOUT

My goal is to help make the world a better place in my lifetime through becoming a better person personally, and through service to my chosen family, community and to humanity in general through my writings and doings.

There is perhaps nothing more important that being in a loving, supportive community. I seek to build growth-oriented communities through social networking and circles of empowered leaders.

As an entertainment technology engineer and entrepreneur, I’m creating and delivering uplifting and transformative media and entertainment experiences using advanced immersive, interactive and virtual reality-based technologies. The eyes and ears are wideband interfaces into our nervous systems. Music, art, and storytelling are powerful transformative modalities that have the potential to awaken and guide our evolution of consciousness.

As an interfaith minister, I’m helping to pioneer experiential spirituality based on our personal awareness and awakenings in community – an approach that is consistent with science’s quest for truth. I feel that every one of us has the capacity to awaken, transform, and create a better life experience for all. To this end, I enjoy creating celebrations that honor the many important aspects and cycles of life.

I seek to merge science and spirituality into a personal mythos that honors the great successes of science in the physical world without denying the inner realms of phenomenology – our mind, emotions and deeper layers of our spirit. The result will be, I believe, a new approach to “quality of life” that will include “quality of consciousness.”

Hi Ed
I went to a presentation on Tuesday by a guy called Martyn Ware. He was one of the founding members of The Human League and Heaven 17 - UK electronic pop bands. He now works in a whole series of areas using sound immersion technology. It put me in mind of yourself. He was showing the use of total immersion spaces for sound and vision. Some interresting stuff with children with disabilities. His main company is called Illustrious the website is www.illustriouscompany.co.uk.
Whilst it has a UK contact point they do work all over the World.
I think you would have a lot in common. Anyway check them out. If you do decide to make contact I would interested to hear how you get on.
Regards
Chris

ED! I'm so happy we are friends; and our groups have much in common. I can't wait to become more a part of it. I'm really impressed with your virtuosity of talent and multi.media engineering; and still staying balanced in the business worlds. I'd love to see some of your work.

About me: Although I'm accenting my screenplay UPLINK 2012.the countdown here, my main site is: www.future-time.tv. I'd love for us to some day combine our talents. I see that you are a visual engineer, large immersive environments, multi.media, optical effects, etc., and can surely be part of the vision. I believe all of our visions merge, anyway, it is so amazing how everything is an extension of the other. I think you'd love VORTEX OF THE TIME.SPACE.PLACE, too, a tv series deriving the entire multi.media with which FUTURE.TIME environments are based; or is it the other way around!??

Talk to you soon, EARA

Hello to Ed Lantz and the entire Transformative Media Group.

I am Teresa R. Hernandez and I am currently involved in a massive transformative multi-media event called Woodstock 40th Anniversary free Peace Concert Convergence and Eco-village in San Francisco, California Golden Gate Park on October 25, 2009.
Boots Hughston of 2b1 Multimedia Inc.,the Council of Light, BEN-HER Media Group, Hearts and Hands Elders and many other spiritual peace activists are collaborating to plan this Harmonic Peace Convergence. Just like Ed Lantz group, we have a vision of collaboration, and transformation to the Mind Shift, Peace Shift and Power Shift towards green technologies, Earth's conservation and a celebration of Oneness on a global scale. Artists, musicians, entertainers, grassroots organizers, educators, multi-media innovators, tech industry leaders in live streaming, virtual presence and interactive media have joined 2b1 in this collaborative venture!

The TV/Network /Radio and Internet Press Releases are planned for August 12, 2009. This historic global peace convergence is a collaborative, passion project that has contributors from multiple industries and networks. The collaborators are volunteering their talents as a gift of bestowal to their community ( the Bay Area) the state, the nation and the world. The message is hope, change and transformation to a global, collaborative, peace economy society. All are invited to join 2b1 in this peace event. It is our gift to everyone who believes in a better world. Our hearts and minds are open to imagining a better place, a better world and the synergy and umoja that will sustain it.

Congratulations on your own collborative efforts in Los Angeles.I was born in Long Beach and lived in L.A. County all my life until 2001. Now I am in the Bay Area.I have joined various social peace portal collaboratives (AOAND, ipeace.me, and Frizzey Lights ) to learn how best to continue to spread the vision of global oneness.
Don't forget your friends in Los Angeles - Prevent Hate.org and the folks at the Museum of Tolerance who are also working towards collaborative multi-media events to bring about social-political-community and global transformation. Prevent Hate will be joining us for the Woodstock collaborative--- peace and non-violence message. We are expecting 200,000 or more peace givers
(guests) in Speedway Meadows, Golden Gate Park on October 25, 2009 for this free peace collaborative event. Please plan to enjoy this day with all of us -either in person or via virtual live streaming! We also are supporting and endorsing Jeremy Gilley UK from peaceoneday.org for promoting world peace on International Peace Day on September 21, 2009.
There are multiple opportunities for all to participate in spiritual, visionary,Transformational Media collaboratives.
Frizzey Lights in Europe and Christopher of Global New Media Project in Florida also share our common passion.

Thank you Ed Lantz for starting this group at AOAND to share projects, ideas and vision in a collaborative, non-competitive mind set.

I am also a member of Richard Lukens AOAND Bay Area Architects group.
In peaceful synergy with all of you,
