"Psychedelic Thinking and the Dawn of Homo Cyber"

     As the new millennium dawns, we find ourselves confronted with ecological havoc on a global scale. Each day it becomes more apparent that our species can no longer continue over-populating and over-consuming the limited resources of this planet. To change humanity’s course requires more than a change of heart—it requires a change in our thinking. In this presentation, Lawrence Hagerty proposes the adoption of psychedelic thinking as the first step in our evolution into a species of meta-humans.

More Thoughts About The Spirit of the Internet

     At the same time hundreds of the best scientists in the world are raising their voices to warn us about the potentially irreversible damage greenhouse gasses are causing, the U.S. Government refuses to limit carbon dioxide emissions or to comply with environmental treaties already favored by many of the world’s governments. These are indeed gray days for our biosphere. Building upon what he wrote in The Spirit of the Internet, Hagerty presents a credible case that there still is a way out of this ecological blind alley, if only we all will play our part.

"The Healthcare Industry and Cyberspace"

     Questions about health are among the most frequent inquiries made on Internet search engines. It is not surprising, therefore, to discover the healthcare industry deeply involved in moving a significant part of their administrative operations to the Web. In this informative presentation, Lawrence Hagerty describes some of the technological advances that have begun to change the face of healthcare delivery in the United States. In addition to painting a picture of the future of e-health, he explains several practical steps that healthcare providers can take today to ensure they remain at the forefront of their industry, as online services and information continue to gain favor with the general public.

"Veterans, Freedom, and the Millennium"

     In this address to a reunion of Korean War Veterans, Lawrence Hagerty outlines some of the ways in which our concepts of freedom have changed over the past 50 years. In particular, he points out several ways in which the virtually unrestricted flow of information brought about by the Internet has changed our concepts of free speech and privacy. Drawing on his background as an attorney, Mr. Hagerty presents an overview of ways in which our Bill of Rights has been weakened in recent years and what can be done to reverse this trend.
