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

April 6, 2019

Bernardo Kastrup 4

Bernardo Kastrup discusses his book The Idea of the World: A Multi-disciplinary Argument for the Mental Nature of Reality.

(Stream / download audio at bottom of page)

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.

The author begins by exposing the logical fallacies and internal contradictions of the reigning physicalist paradigm and popular alternatives such as panpsychism. The main objections to idealism are also systematically refuted. The book closes with an analysis of the hidden psychological motivations behind mainstream physicalism and the implications of idealism for the way we relate to each other and the world. The view of reality presented here makes sense of the many mysteries which mainstream materialist science simply cannot fathom. It reconciles the classical and quantum worlds and disposes of the so-called ‘hard problem’ of consciousness. It may even hold the secret to the origin and meaning of life.

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

March 30, 2019

Thomas Lombardo 22

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.

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

February 19, 2019

Jasun Horsley 4

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?

Jim Elvidge – Digital Consciousness: The True Nature of Reality? Part Two

February 7, 2019

Jim Elvidge 2

Jim Elvidge discusses his book ‘Digital Consciousness: A Transformative Vision’. Our reality is not what it appears to be. The latest physics experiments demonstrate that an objective reality simply does not exist. Despite its immense value to humanity, modern science’s claim that it can account for the depth and diversity of experience, and in the foreseeable future explain the fundamental nature of reality, goes too far. Modern mainstream science maintains that matter is all that matters, and that the seemingly-solid three-dimensional world of our five senses is all there really is. But the list of phenomena adequately accounted for by the physical sciences is outstripped by those it cannot explain and instead simply chooses to ignore.

Bernie Taylor – The Hero’s Journey and the Human Race – Part Two

November 26, 2018

Bernie Taylor 4

Bernie Taylor discusses his book ‘Before Orion – Finding the Face of the Hero’. The myth of the hero’s journey is at the heart of folklore worldwide among the ancients, indigenous peoples past and present, and even in our modern society as metaphors, allegories, archetypes, and symbols in popular culture. Taylor proposes that select cave paintings are fundamental pieces in the human journey to self-realization, the foundation of written language, and a record of biological knowledge that irrevocably impacted some of the artistic styles, religious practices, and stories that are still with us. He addresses a profound elephant in the room by opening up uncharted places in our history, exploring ideas unacceptable to mainstream archaeology and anthropology.

Mark Stavish – Egregores: The Occult Entities That Watch Over Human Destiny

October 1, 2018

Mark Stavish Egregores

Mark Stavish discusses his book ‘Egregores – The Occult Entities That Watch Over Human Destiny’. Do you know your own mind? Do you make your own decisions? Are you in control of your life? Or has someone or something else taken over? Beneath a veneer of rational choices, are you really in control of anything at all?
One of most important but little known concepts of Western occultism is that of the egregore, an autonomous psychic entity created by a collective group mind. An egregore is sustained by belief, ritual, and sacrifice, and relies upon the devotion of a group of people, from a small coven to an entire nation, for its existence. An egregore that receives enough sustenance can take on a life of its own, becoming an independent deity with powers its believers can use to further their own spiritual advancement and material desires.
