Gary Lachman – Beyond The Robot: The Life and Work of Colin Wilson – Part Two

November 20, 2017

Gary Lachman 33

Gary Lachman discusses his book Beyond the Robot – The Life and Work of Colin Wilson. This is a three part interview. Part one is here. Part three will be released shortly.

(Stream / download audio at bottom of page)

Colin Wilson was a literary and cultural rebel, and one of the most adventurous, hopeful, and least understood visionary intellects of the past century. Author of over a hundred books including the 1956 classic The Outsider, Wilson purveyed a philosophy of mind power and human potential that made him arguably the only optimistic existentialist. In part two, we discuss the relationship between mind and matter and how reality is apparently becoming more malleable, the science of self-actualization, the evolution of consciousness and the cosmos, and the future – or not – for humanity.

Bernardo Kastrup – Religion, Reality and The Meaning of Life: Part Two

June 30, 2016

Bernardo Kastrup - More Than Allegory 1

Bernardo Kastrup discusses his book More Than Allegory – On Religious Myth, Truth, and Belief. In a Universe seemingly devoid of meaning and purpose where matter is all that matters, our souls are at war with our intellects, and the consequences for life on Earth may yet prove disastrous. Maybe it is time for us to remember who we really are – both magician and audience, dreamer and dream, from a realm beyond language where time and space are illusions, and the very nature of truth itself may not be what it seems. We are the universe becoming aware of itself. We know what God cannot know.

Colin E. Davis & Melissa Mari – Cracking the Codes of Cosmic Darkness: Part Two

April 16, 2016

SHADOW TECH 1

Colin E. Davis and Melissa Mari discuss their book Shadow Tech – Cracking the Codes of Personal and Collective Darkness. In the follow-up to our first interview we further discuss the nature of evil as a non-local force communicable across the energetic field which exists between individuals, groups, and entire species. It is the shadow side of the human psyche known down the ages as demons, evil spirits, and possession, amongst other things. It is viral and parasitic in nature, operating within the biological computer, the hardware of the body, and the software of the mind. Human culture, therefore, is like a computer network, and deep within it politics, economics, the media, and every tentacle of our tremulous civilization twists and tortures our subconscious. We are, however, not completely helpless. In acknowledging what ails us and summoning the courage to confront it, we have at least a chance of cutting out this cancer before it kills the host.

Colin E. Davis & Melissa Mari – Cracking the Codes of Cosmic Darkness: Part One

March 25, 2016

SHADOW TECH 1

Colin E. Davis and Melissa Mari discuss their book Shadow Tech – Cracking the Codes of Personal and Collective Darkness. Is there a destructive force in the universe that we call evil, and if so, how does it work? Is culture related to dysfunction and disease? What is the nature of the shadow of the human psyche? Can any of this explain concepts of possession and demonic influence?

Rory Mac Sweeney – Wide Asleep, Deep Awake

March 12, 2016

Rory Mac Sweeney 3

Dr. Rory Mac Sweeney discusses some of the ideas in his book The Paradox of Lucid Dreaming – A Metaphysical Theory of Mind. During the show, we further probe the blurring boundaries between the micro world of quantum physics and the macro realm of our so-called reality, and those between the waking and dreaming states of consciousness. It would appear that as these apparently discrete worlds collide and cross over, the gulf between mind and matter, between thought and the physical realm, is narrowing at an increasing rate.

Gary Lachman – The Secret Teachers of the Western World

February 23, 2016

Gary Lachman 3

Gary Lachman discusses his book The Secret Teachers of the Western World. This epic study unveils the esoteric masters who have covertly impacted the intellectual development of the West. Running alongside the mainstream of Western intellectual history there is another current which, in a very real sense, should take pride of place, but which for the last few centuries has occupied a shadowy, inferior position, somewhere underground. In this clarifying, accessible, and fascinating study, Lachman explores the Western esoteric tradition as a thought movement with ancient roots and modern expressions, which, in a broad sense, regards the cosmos as a living, spiritual, meaningful being and humankind as having a unique obligation and responsibility within it. This is in stark contrast to much of modern science, which sees the universe as a meaningless flow of matter and energy, and human beings as pointless accidents.

During today’s show we delve deep into the dream space, discussing how the barriers between dreams and reality, and between mind and matter are dissolving as we awaken once again to the true nature of the world and the wider cosmos – one of paradox, illusion and constant change.

Rory Mac Sweeney – Orphans of the Stars

December 10, 2015

Rory Mac Sweeney

Dr. Rory Mac Sweeney discusses some of the ideas in his book The Paradox of Lucid Dreaming – A Metaphysical Theory of Mind. In this freewheeling, off-the-cuff chat we explore creativity, philosophy, the rise of independent media and the Internet and growing global interconnectedness, psychedelics and shamanism, the origin of life, the potential existence of meaning and purpose throughout the cosmos, and the fundamental nature of reality itself. Can something really be created from nothing, and if not, has something always existed? Perhaps the biggest question of all is not how, but why?
