  • Rembrandt van Rijn. Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn was a Dutch draughtsman, painter, and printmaker. An innovative and prolific master in three media, he is generally considered one of the greatest visual artists in the history of art and the most important in Dutch art history.
  •  
  • How Money Works. Rembrandt came from poverty and died in poverty – even though his paintings are now worth $250 million and more. At the height of his career, he was wealthy and celebrated. Why is it that so many talented and successful people are not able to build lasting wealth for themselves?
  •  
  • The Split Brain. Native Americans had to be alert to the sights and sounds of their environment to survive. So do we today but for a different reason. Not because of physical dangers but because of the dangers of “nervous disorders” that come from confused thinking. Failure to live creatively and spontaneously is one of the biggest problems of our time.
  •  
  • Sailing. The art of sailing is the ultimate moving with nature without any loss of resources. Somewhere in our evolution, we made a turn in which we concentrated on fossil fuels instead of wind, current, and other natural resources. Can we turn back the clock?
  •  
  • The Dutch. Living in a small country the Dutch had to be creative in finding their way in life. For centuries they have gained land from the sea instead of going to war. To this day they remain universally acclaimed for their marine engineering. With the rising sea level, they are preparing for yet another challenge.
