For over 40 years I have taught Teilhard’s breakthrough insights by using the film strip called Survival. Since the filmstrip was getting brittle and bulbs for the old projector hard to find I looked around for help to digitize it. That help came via Fr. Jim Brokman and Mount Mercy Univ. After researching for any impediments to doing that and finding none they did this for me. They found that I had one of two existing copies of this original filmstrip as people were advised to destroy them back in the early days when Teilhard was considered dangerous. This film strip makes Teilhard’s vision available to any alert 16 year old. I have used in in workshops and retreat down through the years. Most recently I was invited to share it with the Institute of Noetic Sciences created by Edgar Mitchell after coming back from the moon.
