About

This blog

An experimental blog exploring consciousness and culture, art and evolution:

  • Potential for new kinds of human societies. I document “emanent folkways” – possible cultures and ways of life in our interconnected world.
  • Non-rational or non-Western modes of knowledge that have been previously excluded, but nevertheless hold vital understanding of ourselves and our world.
  • The rise of spiritual counter-culture as holding valid worldview(s) and visions for the future.
  • The creative imagination, the importance of understanding myth and valuing the sacred in contemporary culture.
  • Digital Culture and the New Media revolution.
  • Bringing together art and scholarship, academia and intuition, intellect and religious experience – crossing between worlds as a mode of intelligence.
  • Exploring our origins.
  • New philosophies that help articulate the contemporary shift in culture and consciousness.
  • Studying transformations, or evolutions in human culture and consciousness.

    1. Hey Joe!

      Apologies for the missing comment on the ICE post. Can’t seem to find it on my end either. Great post on Integral World, Joe. I was speaking with Frank Visser and he pointed yours out to me as well. Glad that our responses are getting circulated “out there” in community discussion. I really appreciated a lot of what you said in the comments on B&S; they were essential insights really. Hope I represented you well in my blog post!

      I’ll be sure to follow-up on your post at Integral World with a few comments/reflections/responses on EL. Laters!

  2. Jeremy, thank you for stopping by my blog. You have developed a fascinating site and I look forward to exploring it in further detail. Congratulations to you and the other team members for creating some exceptionally high quality content that gives us a lot to think about.

    One quick question on the podcasts (which look to be great!), are they available on iTunes or other media for easier downloading and playing when away from a connection?

    Thank you again.

    1. Hi J!

      Wow – I just discovered your comment after not logging onto WordPress for some time. Thanks so much!

      I’m going to have to take some time to peruse the content and curate it all, but I have to say thank you, really, for taking the time to share this with me. I’ll shoot an email over to Bill Thompson so he can keep this on his radar.

      There is a wealth of material on here that truly use more exposure. Some kind of larger publication series sounds like a fantastic idea. I’m thinking, if there is time, of doing a podcast series, akin to the way the Psychedelic Salon posts a wealth of archived material from Terence McKenna and other counter-cultural speakers. Let me mull it over for now. Thanks again.
