“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us “Universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest—a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. The striving to free oneself from this delusion is the one issue of true religion. Not to nourish it but to try to overcome it is the way to reach the attainable measure of piece of mind.”

- Science in Society Archive: The “Academic–Industrial–Military Complex” Engineering Life & Mind The “academic–industrial–military complex” is shaping every aspect of our lives, beginning with the kind of science and scientific research that gets done and gets reported. We are not only losing our right to self–determination and self–sufficiency, but most seriously of all, our right to think differently from the corporate establishment. The suppression of scientific dissent threatens the survival of science and endangers lives. Dr. Mae–Wan Ho and Jonathan Matthews call for open debate on the scientific evidence of hazards inherent to genetic engineering. The future of food security and the survival of our planet are at stake.

- “Thermodynamics of Organisms and Sustainable Systems” by Dr. Mae–Wan Ho
- “Why Are Organisms So Complex?: A Lesson in Sustainability” by Dr. Mae–Wan Ho
- “Science of the Organism & Sustainable Systems”: Implications for Agricultural Policies: Dr. Mae–Wan Ho calls for a shift away from the obsolete mechanistic science that has helped create the current food, fuel, and financial crisis in the midst of climate change. The new science of the organism re–establishes our connection with nature and with indigenous knowledge systems worldwide. Europe's agricultural policies must rise to the challenge, to support and promote organic, localised agriculture and food and energy systems that offers the most effective way out of the current crisis, to deliver health, wealth and happiness to the world's nations.
- “Sustainable Agriculture, Green Energies and the Circular Economy”: Sustainable organic agriculture could cut China's greenhouse emissions and save fossil fuel use by more than 40 percent; decentralised, distributed green energies would do the rest for the circular economy. Dr. Mae–Wan Ho
- “Sustainable Agriculture: Critical Ecological, Social & Economic Issues”: Various ecological, social and economic challenges must be addressed if agriculture is to be truly sustainable. Martin Khor, Director of the Third World Network, discusses the choices facing developing countries and policy makers, and suggests some ways forward.
- “Mitigating Climate Change through Organic Agriculture and Localized Food Systems”: Organic, sustainable agriculture that localize food systems has the potential to mitigate nearly thirty percent of global greenhouse gas emissions and save one–sixth of global energy use. Dr. Mae–Wan Ho and Lim Li Ching
- “How to Beat Climate Change & Post Fossil Fuel Economy”: Dr. Mae–Wan Ho tables a proposal around a zero–emission, zero–waste farm after a highly successful workshop with living legend George Chan, who created dozens such farms to eradicate poverty in third world countries
