On living through times of accelerating change...

Recorded at the Dallas Museum of Nature & Science during a perigee Full Moon in Scorpio, 5 May 2012, for The Manifestation Celebration.

A NOTE ON THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THIS TALK:

Terence McKenna seeded us with the image of technology so sophisticated it disappears from our daily experience, coevolved to the horizon of invisibility but lifting us to a new platform of experiential richness, leaving us naked apes in hyperspace.

Kevin Kelly made the point that it won't be the age of computers until they're invisible and we don't notice them unless they stop working.

Charles Eisenstein reminded us that the clock was invented to increase our leisure but ultimately became our master (nobody was five minutes late, or could even understand such a thing, in 1400 AD)...

Richard Doyle argued eloquently that our symbiotic relationship with psychoactive plants and fungi conferred us a sexual advantage through increased facility with communication (the psychedelic experience is training for the boundary dissolution of lovemaking, and poetry is McKenna's philosopher's stone, the "violet psychofluid" living between and as both matter and spirit).

Somewhere in the nexus between those interpenetrating thought fields, I think, is a future I believe in.
