Peter Strother – Who Are We?

May 8, 2019

Peter Strother discusses his book Spiritual Beings or Economic Tools – Just Who Are We?

(Stream / download audio at bottom of page)

In much of the modern world we are trapped in a loop of work, consume, sleep, repeat. Those conscious of this soul-destroying cycle are often even more dejected and disillusioned than those who blindly bow to the demands of consumerist culture, pursuing desires which are not their own, slaves to the opinions of others, and more afraid of the unknown than of hollow, haunted subsistence. Empty and unfulfilled, billions trudge wearily towards a death subconsciously feared but still denied throughout a life deemed to be devoid of either meaning or purpose.

But in the early 21st Century, converging economic, political, social and environmental crises are making the grinding routine of business-as-usual increasingly impossible. Frustration and broken promises are boiling over in increasing unrest, violence, and destruction of both the system and the self. The first steps towards breaking free of the tyranny of comfort and complacency are self-awareness, self-knowledge, and self-mastery, all of which are actively discouraged in the matrix of mindless media, digital distractions, junk food, and instant gratification. Through choice or by force, and sooner rather than later, we will all have some difficult decisions to make as the world we persist in taking for granted simply disappears.

Frank Joseph – Megalithic Mysteries and Lost Civilizations Part Two

May 1, 2019

Inspired by his book ‘Power Places and the Master Builders of Antiquity’ Frank Joseph discusses some of the mysteries of the megalithic age and legends of lost civilizations. The peoples of the Neolithic era bequeathed us some of the most amazing achievements and profound puzzles in human history. From cryptic stone circles to arcane rituals and rites and a science of the stars we are still struggling to comprehend, ancestors once regarded as ignorant and inferior continue to emerge as remarkably advanced, and arguably much more in tune with their natural surroundings than contemporary civilization.

Mike Clelland – Owls, Synchronicity and UFOs

April 12, 2019

Mike Clelland discusses his book ‘The Messengers: Owls, Synchronicity, and the UFO Abductee’. One of the most original books ever written on UFOs, The Messengers will make any thoughtful person ask fundamental questions about the nature of reality itself. More than any work in recent memory, it successfully ties the UFO phenomenon not simply to possible extraterrestrial intelligences, but to synchronicities, ancient archetypes, dreams, shamanistic experiences, magic, personal transformation, and death.

Bernardo Kastrup – Reality? It’s All in Your Mind

April 6, 2019

Bernardo Kastrup discusses his book ‘The Idea of the World: A Multi-disciplinary Argument for the Mental Nature of Reality’. In his most cogent and compelling work to date, Kastrup’s theory of reality offers a grounded alternative to the frenzy of unrestrained abstractions and unexamined assumptions in philosophy and science today. The Idea of the World makes a rigorous case for the primacy of mind in nature, examining what can be learned about the nature of reality based on conceptual parsimony, straightforward logic, and empirical evidence from fields as diverse as physics and neuroscience. It compiles an overarching case for idealism – the notion that reality is essentially mental.

Thomas Lombardo – Science Fiction: The Evolutionary Mythology of the Future

March 30, 2019

Thomas Lombardo discusses his book ‘Science Fiction: The Evolutionary Mythology of the Future’. Science fiction is the most visible and influential contemporary form of futurist thinking and imagination in the modern world. Similar in many ways to the great myths of the past, science fiction is so popular because, in dramatic narrative form, it speaks to the whole person – intellect, imagination, emotion, human values, and the senses – providing fantastical and visionary stories that engage and enlighten us, expanding our consciousness and inspiring our ongoing future evolution.

Darius Nikbin – Rise of the Machines: Our Techno Future?

March 24, 2019

Darius Nikbin discusses his book ‘The Universal Subject of Our Time (Or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Machine)’. In the dialectic of man versus machine, can machines ever become more than glorified number crunchers? How would we know if a machine was actually beginning to think? If it did, might it eventually develop self-awareness and if so, might it also develop self-interest? What if its interests conflicted with ours? In the context of scientific optimism versus post-modern pessimism, we ponder whether artificial intelligence can deliver on its promise of tackling social and economic problems and enhancing our lives, or whether its ultimate threat of a subjugated or even annihilated humanity could one day come to pass.

Kingsley Dennis – Fragmented Reality and Fear of the Future

February 28, 2019

Kingsley Dennis discusses his book ‘Bardo Times’. As with so many civilizations of the past, we live in a time of crisis. Contemporary culture is caught in a cul-de-sac, a battle zone of competing ideologies and dogmas. Although the human race has a long history of generating millenarian hype and apocalyptic panics, for many people the state we’re in right now really does have an air of gathering gloom and a palpable sense of ‘something’s got to give’ unlike any in the past.

Jasun Horsley – Sex, Occultism and Social Engineering: Part Three

February 19, 2019

Jasun Horsley discusses his book ‘The Vice of Kings: How Socialism, Occultism, and the Sexual Revolution Engineered a Culture of Abuse’. In today’s post-truth world, we are becoming inundated with fantasy fiction, alternate truth, fake news, and grossly-oversimplified, wildly-exaggerated conspiracy theories in which cryptocratic power structures and shadowy elites rule our fates. But suppose the truth is both stranger than any fiction and more nuanced and disturbing than any theory? Suppose it is not conspiracy but complicity that creates our world?

Brian Keating – Cosmos and Controversy: Science and the Big Questions

February 12, 2019

Brian Keating, author of ‘Losing the Nobel Prize: A Story of Cosmology, Ambition, and the Perils of Science’s Highest Honor’, discusses the origin of the Universe and how science is performed, presented, and perceived. Modern science portrays itself as dispassionate and detached, with objective observers simply registering facts. But scientists are people too, with prejudices and emotions, rivalries and ambitions, hopes and fears. Pop science today is all over the media, making stars out of scientists unaccustomed to such acclaim. In an age of chaos and confusion where anti-scientific attitudes are also on the rise, can more be done to make science relevant and meaningful to the masses?
