Welcome back friends and thank you for once again plugging your consciousness into our nest for catma-filled novelty nuggets!
Erik Davis is an author, scholar and lecturer. His tremendous book, Techgnosis Myth Magic and Mysticism In the Age of Information draws novel, fascinating correlations between technology and mysticism.
This conversation is all about evading the awe-sucking tentacles of society's deeply-entrenched dogma dealers. It's not easy, but to do it, we need to expand, reconsider and diversify the types of knowledge we’re willing to explore. We've got to be active wonder-seekers. We have establish our subjective inner-worlds as frontiers worth exploring, developing and celebrating.
We've also got to be careful not to take our catma (I'm in love with this word) quest too far, for if we do, we're sure to end up deep in the realm of woo, a place where few are taken seriously.
