Don't know who Tom Shadyac is? As a writer and a director, Shadyac first unleashed Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and The Nutty Professor remake on the world, and then a string of film fiascoes, but that's all behind him now. A bike accident left him with a host of debilitating maladies and brought him to the verge of suicide, so he took stock of his life and set out on a quest to answer some of life's greatest questions. What's wrong with the world? How do we go about fixing it? Is the fundamental nature of man essentially benevolent or cruel? So he traveled around, enlisting the aid of what he calls "significant minds"-- journalists, scientists, spiritual leaders, scholars-- to understand life's essential questions. "I Am" is his documentary about this quest

"They knew us before we began to walk upright.

If they give you lined paper, write sideways by Daniel Quinn( Book )
3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 207 libraries worldwide
"In Ishmael, Daniel Quinn offered new ways of seeing and understanding human history, and our future. His message has been transformative for millions of people, and Ishmael continues to attract tens of thousands of new readers each year. Subsequent works, such as The Story of B and My Ishmael, expanded upon his insights and teachings, but only now does he finally tackle the one question he has been asked hundreds of times but has never taken on: "How do you do what you do?" In if They Give You Lined Paper, Write Sideways, Quinn elucidates for readers the methods behind his own thought processes, challenging and ultimately empowering them to view the world for themselves in creative, perhaps even revolutionary ways." "If They Give You Lined Paper, Write Sideways also includes Quinn's never-before-published essays "The New Renaissance"and "Our Religions. "There Is a scientific consensus that global warming Is approaching a tipping point beyond no return faster than had previously been predicted. Quinn has long portrayed humans as "a species of beings, which, while supposedly rational, are destroying the very planet they live on." So what are we to do? There has never been a plan for the future - and there never will be. But something extraordinary will happen in the next two or three decades; the people of our culture will learn to live sustainably - or not. Either way, it will be extraordinary. The sooner we understand this reality, the greater the chances that human society will transform Itself so that the human race might have a future."--Jacket
The tales of Adam by Daniel Quinn( Book )

This is a world seen through animist eyes: as friendly to human life as it was to the life of gazelles, lions, lizards, mosquitos, jellyfish, and seals - not a world in which humans lived like tresp assers who must conquer and subdue an alien territory. It's a world in which humans have a place in the community of life - not as rulers but as equa ls. This is not an ancient world or a lost world. It exists as surely today as it ever did - for those who have eyes to see it
