SDSThe Students for a Democratic Society (SDS) was, historically, a student activist movement in the United States that was one of the main iconic representations of the country’s New Left. The organization developed and expanded rapidly in the mid-1960s before dissolving at its last convention in 1969. SDS was the organizational high point for student radicalism in the United States and has been an important influence on student organizing in the decades since its collapse. Participatory democracy, direct action, radicalism, student power, shoestring budgets, and its organizational structure are all present in varying degrees in current national student activist groups. Though various organizations have been formed in subsequent years as proposed national networks for left-wing student organizing, none has approached the scale of SDS, and most have lasted a few years at best. There does exist a newly-formed SDS network that claims the mantle of the original.

Coined by Maslow, self-actualizing people see life clearly. They are less emotional and more objective, less likely to allow hopes, fears, or ego defenses to distort their observations.

Social-EngineeringA concept in political science that refers to efforts to influence popular attitudes and social behavior on a large scale, whether by governments or private groups. In the political arena the counterpart of social engineering is political engineering.  For various reasons, the term has been imbued with negative connotations. However, virtually all law and governance has the effect of changing behavior and can be considered "social engineering" to some extent. Prohibitions on murder, rape, suicide and littering are all policies aimed at discouraging perceived undesirable behaviors. In British and Canadian jurisprudence, changing public attitudes about a behavior is accepted as one of the key functions of laws prohibiting it. Governments also influence behavior more subtly through incentives and disincentives built into economic policy and tax policy, for instance, and have done so for centuries.  In practice, whether any specific policy is labeled as "social engineering" is often a question of intent. The term is most often employed by the political right as an accusation against any who propose to use law, tax policy, or other kinds of state influence to change existing power relationships.

In the first tier, individuals, organizations, and cultures pass through the following stages: Beige meme: SurvivalSense, Instinctive, small survival bands; Purple meme: Animistic, Kindred Spirits, superstitious tribes; Red meme: Power-Gods, Egocentric, empires bent on conquest and impulsive gratification; Blue Meme: TruthForce, Authority, groups concerned with rules, traditions, and obedience; Orange meme: StriveDrive, Strategic, corporations seeking wealth and status; Green meme: HumanBond, Consensus, cultures sharing egalitarian feelings. The "second tier" starts with Yellow meme (FlexFlow, Ecological), and then Turquoise meme (WholeView, Holistic). Even higher "third tier" Vmemes are said to exist.

Stanislov GrofHolotropic Breathwork is a psychotherapeutic approach developed by Stanislav Grof, M.D., Ph.D. and Christina Grof, believed to allow access to nonordinary states of consciousness. Holotropic breathing has some similarities to rebirthing, but was developed independently. Holotropic Breathwork is used by practitioners as an approach to self-exploration and healing that integrates insights from modern consciousness research, anthropology, various depth psychologies, transpersonal psychology, Eastern spiritual practices, and mystical traditions of the world. The name Holotropic means "moving toward wholeness" (from the Greek "holos"=whole and "trepein"=moving in the direction of something).  The method combines hyperventilation and relaxation while listening to evocative music in a supportive setting. The state of consciousness thus brought forward is said to activate the natural inner healing process of the individual's psyche, bringing him or her a particular set of internal experiences.
