The Virome: A Template for A Regenerative Future

Abstract: We have recently witnessed the most profound shut down of the global economy in history, a pause of collective human activity.  This was not inspired by the overwhelming evidence that we are the source of catastrophic destruction of ecosystems and the engineers of the 6th cataclysmic global mass extinction event in the planet’s four billion years. It was the story of a virus that was threatening human life.  The sad reality, is the global response to this event was based on century old science that has generalized the germ theory of bacterial infection to the eloquent genomic language of the viruses.  In this talk we will look at the role of viruses in the development of life on earth, including the human genome, stem cells, and the adaptation of life.  As we step into the world of the viruses we get a glimpse of the potential for a new philosophy for human society as a member of nature, rather than at war with that nature.
