Rachel Sussman presents
The World’s Oldest Living Organisms
While we may aspire to live a century, Rachel Sussman documents creatures who don’t bat an eye at a millennium or two. Her photography has captured 4,500 year old bristlecone pines, 12,000 year old yucca, 400,000 year old Siberian bacteria, and many other wizened elders, all with stories longer than all of recorded human history.
Seminar hosted by Stewart Brand
Long Now Members can reserve 2 complimentary seats.
There will be a reception at The Long Now Museum & Store following the Seminar.
About the Series:
The Seminars About Long-term Thinking were started in 02003 to build a coherent, compelling body of ideas about long-term thinking, to help nudge civilization toward Long Now's goal of making long-term thinking automatic and common instead of difficult and rare.
