Growing up home-schooled, Daniel had early exposure to design science (Buckminster Fuller, Jacques Fresco, Permaculture, etc.), systems science and complexity (Fritjof Capra, Stuart Kauffman, etc.), philosophy and psychology (eastern and western approaches), and activism (animal rights, environmental issues, social justice, etc.) His passion has always been at the intersection of these topics – specifically, facilitating the emergence into a mature civilization – that can prevent otherwise impending catastrophes, remediate existing damage, make possible a radically higher quality of life for all sustainably, and support greater realization of our individual and collective potential.
Daniel works on a number of projects related to these goals.
He is also the director or Research and Development at Neurohacker Collective, working on complexity informed solutions for the future of well-being science, medicine, and evolving human capacity. He hosts a podcast there exploring those topics.
He also posts on more personal topics on FB @danielschmachtenberger
