We have over 1000 audio and video recordings (1969-2017) from Jacque Fresco. He covers a vast array of topics and technologies explaining and contrasting the system we live in to the possibilities of a Resource Based Economy. We are in the process of transcribing these lectures, some of which were formally referred to as “Jacque Fresco’s Classic Lecture” (1969- 1979). More descriptive to the time period, they are now called the “Sociocyberneering Audio Collection”. The transcripts will serve many purposes - archiving, creating new content, educational works and other projects - to make them available to the public. Below is a first-time release audio lecture as a result of the transcribing efforts. There will be more to come!

This lecture analyzes notions of introspection, satisfaction, peace of mind, nature lovers, higher consciousness, approval, sharing, good behavior, insecurity, personal judgement, and more.
We provide this audio lecture in three formats:
