The Olympia Fellowship of Reconciliation’s November 2016 TV program looks at the human condition – and at some of our social and political realities – from an unusual perspective. People’s awareness of their eventual deaths – even subcon-sciously – influence their behavior in surprising ways. Empirical research proves this.
Our guest, Greg Bennick, helps us explore this topic. Greg Bennick has extensive experience as a humanitarian activist, world traveler, public speaker, punk rocker, and biographer. For two decades he has been communicating about social issues, and he has spoken in more than twenty-five countries. He co-produced a feature-length documentary film on the topic of this interview; Flight from Death: The Quest for Immortality. Now he is writing the official biography of Ernest Becker, the person who really launched the efforts to study this. Greg has spoken about Becker in more nations around the world than anyone else. He serves on the Advisory Board of the Ernest Becker Foundation, www.ernestbecker.org.
