about

Recorded on 29 August 2013 as part of Burning Man's Fractal Planet Village Speaker Series. This hour of ecodelic philosophy explores the shifting boundaries between human and machine, past and future, self and society...one of Michael's noteworthy performances, energized by an excellent venue and audience. Appearances by Jonathan Zap and Mitch Mignano round out the discussion.

Topics include:

• The evolutionary imperative of taking a "cosmic" perspective;
• Why you don't need to fear a killer robot uprising;
• How an internet for dolphins will help with humanity's coming of age;
• The importance of absurdity and play in 21st Century society;
• And other "required" listening for post-millenial existence.

Here are a few relevant selected essays:

• bit.ly/doubting-our-horizons
• bit.ly/what-we-can-learn-from-mass-extinctions
• bit.ly/transformational-festivals-are-a-symptom-of-dissociation
• bit.ly/godhood-is-boring
• bit.ly/coevolution-and-the-technology-of-desire

Album cover art: M.C. Escher + Pusheen mashup by MG.
