    532-Various: "The Mind, Consciousness, and the Brain"

    Today's podcast features a conversation that was held on August 28, 1993 between Rupert Sheldrake, the originator of the Morphic Resonance theory, and Joseph Chilton Pearce, author of many books including The Crack in the Cosmic Egg and other works investigating the brain, the mind, and consciousness. As their discussion proceeds they explore the concept that, as observers, WE actually are creating reality. Their conclusion to this often explored area of quantum physics is that, no, WE don't create the physical world. Rather, we are largely the recipients of it and our job is to learn how to participate with it and go along with it.

    531-Wilson: "The Prisim Lecture"

    Today's podcast features a talk by Robert Anton Wilson that was given in Santa Cruz in February 1982. Interestingly, he begins by giving U.S. presidents, beginning with Lyndon Johnson, some amusing labels according to how he sees their influence on the American public. And his discussion of the "reality labyrinth's" we all inhabit is something that we all should give some time to think about.

He begins by quoting part of a poem by William Butler Yeats, but he changed one word in the final two lines so they read: And what rough beast, its hour come round at last, Slouches towards Washington to be born?

    528-TMcKenna: "History Ends In Green" – Part 5

    Today's podcast features the final tape in the September 1990 Terence McKenna workshop titled “History Ends In Green”. A few of my favorite quotes from this talk include: “The payoff [of psychedelic experiences] is being able to design our way toward a more humane culture.” AND “And I think that's how we have to act. We have to each choose a small area and then act in that limited area with all the existential commitments we can muster. But not with anxiety.” AND “Politics without responsibility IS fascism.”
