Hope for the Future of Food on Planet Earth… and Beyond!

Monday, June 27th, 2016

Every once in a while I’m sure all of us have absorbed a new idea that changes us completely, almost instantly.  I am personally always looking for this experience. These can come in many forms, but I recently had a major mind stretch regarding how our society is going to feed future generations… and it looks hopeful.

There have been versions of this technology in the past and as every new invention is building on past advancement, this is no different.  No different than a slide ruler, is to a calculator, is to a computer that is.

I could try to summarize what Caleb expertly presents in a matter of minutes.  But I just want to let him tell you about what he’s doing.  But if you are worried about how you’re going to feed yourself, your friends/family, along with the rest of world… with nutritious food.  Then you need to know about this.

Please watch this video and share where you can if you want to help future generations have access to the nutrition they need to survive. ~Chords of Truth

Caleb Harper, director of the Open Agriculture Initiative at the MIT Media Lab, wants to change the food system by connecting growers with technology. Get to know Harper’s “food computers” and catch a glimpse of what the future of farming might look like.

The Origins of “Moon Time” – (original song by Chords of Truth)

Friday, April 3rd, 2015

In the fall of 2013, I was awoken in the night with the phrase “Moon Time” in my head after the viewing of a documentary on electronic music gatherings converged with the prior knowledge that life on this planet is strongly influenced by the moon. This creative inspiration generated several new songs including “Moon Time” as the first single to be released.

Back in the early 2000s I discovered the 13 Moon Calendar and researched the history of time keeping. It astounded me to find that throughout history the imperial empires would systematically force their calendars on any culture they conquered in what appears to be a control tactic.  Our current Gregorian calendar of measuring dates according to the sun with months of random days disconnects our essence from nature.  We are the only known species to even know what the date is.  The rest of the planet more intimately revolves around (pun intended) the cycles of the moon.

No calendar is perfect as it is pretty difficult to perfectly measure “time” by attaching it to the revolutions of the earth through the solar system.  So there always has to be slight adjustments made periodically to keep seasons and weather patterns consistent for times of year.  But everything from the tides to female menstrual cycles are affected by the moon, so why are we not living according to this framework?  “Moon Time” is meant to celebrate our cosmic connection with the moon and promote harmony with all of nature through a change in our perspective of time.

Working with producer Jef Joslin, recording engineer Spencer Clarke, and drummer Michael Hagen, we created an upbeat Americana acoustic folk tune with a message and a catchy chorus. has called Chords of Truth “an acoustic powerhouse”. And 10 Mile Stereo said “Chords of Truth is a unique story teller with a distinct bass voice reminiscent of Johnny Cash.  Be sure to look for new songs to be released over the coming months.
