Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.

What is the Opposite of Psychopathy? There's a psychopathic continuum from full-blown psychopath, having all the traits and characteristics, to some characteristics to having a few. Perhaps we should consider the full spectrum-- all the way to people who are the most opposite of psychopathic. What would such a spectrum look like? What would all the traits, characteristics and parameters look like, all the way to the most positive aspects of being human.

Visions of a Positive Future vs Fixing a Pathological Present it is not enough to resist the system and the problems that exist. It is absolutely inadequate to aim for repairing the symptoms of what is broken. We need big, positive visions which lift our sights higher, towards horizons where there are bright futures, not scotch tape and bubblegum fixes for the pathological system we currently inhabit.

Politics and Positive Psychology; Reconciling and Integrating Them For 20+ years, I've been involved with the world of Positive Psychology-- before it even had a name. The other day, a reader, who checked out my positive psych website, asked how I reconciled my political work and punditry with my positive psychology work. This is a stab at starting to explain.

On Being Brave, Having Courage Today, a researcher interviewed me. He was looking for people who thought they were brave. Well, in some ways, I've considered myself to be a coward, but then, others have told me I have big cojones, so I volunteered. It was an interesting conversation that got me thinking more about bravery and courage.

Book Review The LAST LECTURE by Randy Pausch The first and only book that made me cry through half the chapters. Randy Pausch is dying of cancer. As is traditional at many universities, he gave a "last lecture" which is usually given by elder, retiring professors. But Pausch's last lecture because an internet youtube phenomenon. And now, after a book he did is out, it is a huge, runaway bestseller, so hot, they literally can't keep the books in stock in bookstores.

Choosing: Courage or Fear, Heroes or Traitors We live in times when stark choices confront us. There are those who would have us live our lives based on fear, based on loyalty to "things" and entities that do not serve humanity, that do not serve a positive future. But the other choice is a vision of a glowing, positive, hopeful tomorrow that brings light, peace, growth, cooperation and blessings to humanity. There are threads of that vision out there.

Positive Psychology-- Promising a Better Humanity Positive Psychology aims to explore the positive aspects of being human-- happiness, well-being, compassion, awe, kindness, love, civility-- and it uses some languaging, like savoring, elevation, broaden and build, eudaemonia.

Goose Walk in Single File; A moment to Spontaneously Pause I went out to my car this morning and, as I looked behind me to pull out, this is what I saw. You can see a bit of my car in the bottom left of the photo. There was this long single-file row of Canadian geese and goslings.

Turning Chaos Into Opportunity; Facing Adversity, Problems and Flaws An excerpt from my book, the Happiness Response. adversity is programmed into life--it's part of growing up, of parenting, of aging and dying. For example, when young children die, their parents suffer great pain, desolation and anguish. But the human mind and spirit have the strength to recover from tremendous devastation. We are biologically and spiritually endowed with resources unknown to us until we need them.
