How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ
Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD-R Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.
NOTE: The NG DVD-R titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
An excellent demonstration of how different living organisms makes use of proven patterns found in nature that man has defined with mathematical formulas (fractals, fibonnaci series, golden ratio) and use them to monitor their health, quantity along with a good idea of the condition of their environment. NG has somehow managed to package all this and more into a presentation that I feel would be easy to comprehend by the average viewer.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
