Mike Clelland! asked me to appear on his Hidden Experience podcast and this time I came loaded for bear. As with the recent podcast with Tracy Twyman I used the opportunity to hash out many of the issues I will be pursuing in the months to come. Mike was in the driver's seat but I had a list of talking points that I wanted to address, because they're going to become increasingly important on The Secret Sun.
I've spent the past three years here exploring a lot of the topics and issues I've been fascinated by all of my life and the next step will be to take what I've learned and try to make sense out of it. More importantly, try to figure out a way to manifest some of this insanity. Try to figure out a way to get out the god-damned mess we are all in by recapturing a sense of possibility. For a start, at least. What I've been doing on this blog has been research, the next step is applications.
This is an epic and impassioned gabfest. I'm very proud of it and I'm very excited about it about the issues we discussed. I hope you all enjoy it.
Topics covered include: The New Age movement, The Da Vinci Code, Whitley Streiber and Communion, resonance, the Vatican and extraterrestrials, The Royal Society ET summit, Behold a Pale Horse, the total collapse of trust in the news media, Stephen Hawking, The Brookings Institute UFO report, Jules Verne, Jack Kirby and the prophetic power of the creative process, the real threat alien possibility poses to the status quo, the constant drumbeat of space news and cosmic awareness, digital photography and the recent sightings epidemic, universal creation myths of sky gods, AAT and the religious right, the power of stories and much, much, much more.
