Potential paradigms will produce spirited conversations on themes birthing emerging paradigms in our now apocalyptic civilization. The word ‘apocalypse’ points to the ‘Revelation of truth’. The revelation of truth brings an end to false narratives that we have come to experience as the many facets of this civilization such as ecology, well being, economy, climate change, spirituality, health, technology, etcExamples of themes discussed include consciousness, ecology, well-being, permaculture, music, spirituality, art, dreams, meditation, (near death experience), psychedelics, food, trauma, shadow work, non-duality, relationships, sports, martial arts, psychedelics, permaculture, civilization, history, future and the list goes on.

    What is the Calendar? Time & Nature's Rhythm — inspired by Matias de Stefanos

    What is the Calendar? Time & Nature's Rhythm — inspired by Matias de Stefanos

    * Summary:
    How are the calendar, time and cultural rituals tied to celestial cycles and patterns? Kenan and Joshua journey across philosophical traditions and ancient astronomical views to unveil surprising connections between humanity's chronology and cosmology.
    A fascinating podcast conversation between Aubrey Marcus and Matias De Stefanos titled "Manifestation Not Working" sparked Kenan's curiosity into exploring how the calendar and cultural rituals connect with natural cycles and manifestation capacities.
    Listening into origins of words like calendar and hour unveils how early cultures sought to map nature's tempo. But modern disconnections from organic rhythms disturb manifestation capacities. Reclaiming localized, ethical calendars tied to sun, moon and Earth may require remembering wisdoms etched into our lexicon...wisdoms that can inspire once again living joyfully within the cosmos we inhabit.
    * Key Topics/Words Explored:
       Calendar - calends, taxation origins, lunar/solar rhythms
       Time - measuring duration, cut up eternity
       Etymology - search for origins and stability
       Cycles - circadian, seasons, gestation, agriculture
       Resonance - consonance, harmony, fractals, holograms
       Nature - baseline rhythms, sun, moon, medicine
       Traditions - Islamic calls, Vedic meters, astrology
       Culture - rituals, food, calendar ceremonies
       Technology - printing press, science vs alchemy
       Reverence - stewardship, caring beyond self

    Dhāraṇā to Dharma: The Throne of Eternal Law — Play of Words Ep # 4

    Dhāraṇā to Dharma: The Throne of Eternal Law — Play of Words Ep # 4

    ** Description
    Welcome to a Play of Words podcast series, where we explore the hidden meaning of words using the pathways of language, theology, spirituality, philosophy, culture and much more. I'm your host, Kenan, and I have a love for etymology and philosophy and science.
    And for this episode I have the pleasure of having with me my dear friend, Joshua Beneventi as a co-host, for episode four of this series. Joshua has a background in anthropology and has a love of philosophy and languages. He speaks around five, if not more languages, including Arabic and Portuguese and studies Sanskrit and has even interfaced with Japanese!
    ** Word this week
    So for this week the word that we felt inspired to explore was primarily Dharma and that led us to the word throne. We started to do some detective work on these words and we stumbled across an entire constellation of words, which was invigorating, in terms of seeing the parallels between the word throne and Dharma and other very powerful mystical,, words in various languages, such as the Arabic word ‘Arsh’ or Throne. ** Submit a word or feedback So I hope that the audience finds this enlightening and inspires them to do their own detective and homework on these. Words of common parlance - that is our goal here - that we become educated users of language, which is a spell which we use to morph our perception. So with that being said, we look forward to the comments or any words you like to explore.

    Welcome to a very special episode of Potential Paradigms. This episode is about the future of humanity and the apocalyptic crisis that we as a civilization find ourselves in today.
    So for this episode, I have the honor of having with me visionary philosopher Yasuhiko Kimura who caught sense of the tremors of the transformation we find ourselves in today for over 30 years. He's also known as the philosopher of change, and rightly so, as he has been exploring the future of human spirituality and what society could look like for over three decades. Yasuhiko Has had a profound personal journey, starting with a cosmic epiphany at the age of 16 where he caught glimpses of what the future of human spirituality would look like. And this inspired him to study comparative mysticism. And since then, he has been teaching all over the world and has written books on ethics, science and consciousness
    In our wide ranging conversations.
    Yasuhiko we shared insights. On the coming shift in consciousness, which will shift our civilization from merely being focused on information gathering, to cultivating our spiritual gifts of intuition, imagination, and creativity. He also believes that people coming together to form local communities of governance in what he calls Synergic Panarchies, holds tremendous potential as the current systems of governance retire and dismantle.

    *. Introduction
    Welcome friends. Today, the topic of our conversation is the nuanced subject of authenticity, which usually refers to being your own self, the word Authenticity comes from the Greek word Authentikos, which refers to principle, original, and genuine. For most of us, authenticity is a long nuanced journey of self discovery. So it gives me great pleasure today to introduce to you a dear friend of mine, Adam Bulbulia, who has written a book on this subject titled, Authenticity, the Immense Power to Be Yourself, which is now also available on Amazon. *. Guest Biography: Adam Bulbulia is an author, Board Certified Behavioral Analyst, and experienced Process Coach who has dedicated years to studying human behavior, empathy, and unconditional love. He has worked extensively with individuals, business owners, and families for over 20 years. He is a seasoned expert in the field of autism and has worked with hundreds of developmentally disabled youth and adults. Authenticity: The Immense Power To Be Yourself is his third published book. Bulbulia is the founder and owner of Bridging Worlds Behavioral Services, and the founder and president of the non-profit Heart Centered Revolutions.

    Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Authenticity-Immense-Power-Be-Yourself/dp/B0CHLKQVPZ/ One of the things that I like about this book is how Adam approaches authenticity through multiple pathways and exploring its connections with things like creativity, nature, relationships, the workplace, livelihood, leadership, death, and even the miraculous. This book has several exercises and games for the reader, which will allow them to get in touch with their own authenticity. And there are several powerful stories that allows one to relate with what does it feel like to live an authentic life. So I hope that you'll get a hold of this book and if you do read this book then please leave us a review and let us know in the comments what you felt.

    Artificial Intelligence, Creativity and the Unknown — A No Hype Panel Discussion Ep#15

    Artificial Intelligence, Creativity and the Unknown — A No Hype Panel Discussion Ep#15

    This is a recent panel discussion that potential paradigms organized with Consciousness Hacking San Diego. It's no surprise to you that artificial intelligence is a big theme right now in the collective. We are all concerned and perhaps also excited about the potentials of artificial intelligence. so there are so many discussions happening on YouTube and on the television, so why t his panel discussion and why watch it. So my simple answer would be that we didn't have any billion dollar ceo. and politicians and our investors, , in this panel. So the conversation was very grounded and conscentious, , and also very creative. So if you're still watching this, let me quickly tell you about the panel .
    Panelist
    * Dr. Robert Twomey, Artist/Engineer, Arthur C Clarke Center, UCSD An artist and engineer who has been working , for more than a decade on the intersection of machine. And, , human perception as to how new technologies, including AI and beyond ai, when they come and cohabitate with humans, , what are the implications of that? What are the unknowns? , And so , when I heard Robert, , I was really blown away by his insights that didn't seem to be present in the mainstream. * Ted Kyi, Engineer, Organizer: Machine Learning San Diego Meetup Ted, Kyi. Ted, Is a senior vice president of a technology company and he also leads an incredible , community group known as, , San Diego Machine Learning. And, , there is no fluff about him. He really grounds the conversation with his background in this tech. So that's a panel.
    Organizers
    I'm one of the people who helped organize this panel together as Potential Paradigms along with my friend Zach Prager, who is a technologist and, , leads, the San Diego Consciousness Hacking Group. that. Explores, , the use of technology for human well-being. -
    Questions
    So some of the questions , , were, , can AI be used as a collaborator? What are the motivations behind AI and human collaboration? Is there [00:03:00] any influence of big money on ai? Of course not. , . Are we projecting our meaning and biases onto ai? Is the current AI based on technologies of plagiarism? What are the new paradigms that are going to emerge from these new technologies? Is there more value of human made art now than before , will AI eliminate jobs? what is the impact of AI on the new creator's economy ? Is there such a thing as AI literacy? Do we need regulation of ai, , and how do we summon, , the unknown both in art and also using this new medium of artificial intelligence? , why do new technologies spark a sense of terror in us? So this was a list of some of the questions. So I hope that you really, , enjoy this and learned something from this. At least that was my attempt, and I think that this was an enlightening conversation.

    A Play of Words: Grammar, Glamour, Spells & Norse Mythology — Chaise Levy Ep#16

    A Play of Words: Grammar, Glamour, Spells & Norse Mythology — Chaise Levy Ep#16

    #etymology #words #spirituality #spelling #dictionary Description:
    Hello, friends. Welcome. I hope that this message finds you all so today I'm excited to share with you. A new series of videos that I'm making called a Play of Words. And this comes from my longstanding passion about looking at the meaning of words, their history, and what their true origins are. And the reason for this is often we use words that we have inherited, we learned as children, and those that we absorb from our culture and the country we live in. So more often than not, we don't really know the real meaning of the words we even use. So wouldn't it actually be nice to know the intention and the real meaning of a word that we use? I hope that you would agree. So there are many ways to look at the true origins and meanings of Word. And in this particular series, I will be exploring with my guests who study languages or speak multiple languages or study music philosophy. Et cetera, to come together and look at, the deeper roots of language.
    Guest Biography
     Chaise Levy is a father, husband, teacher, and storyteller in the oral tradition. He is profoundly committed to the power of image, story, and magic as great gifts for the griefs of our time. Chaise's work with story centers reckoning with ancestral legacies of both blessing and harm, nourishing the imagination as a partner for liberation, and feeding this wild-wonderful earth with eloquence. chaiselevy.com northernspirithouse.substack.com Longer Description: One way to look at the history or [00:01:00] origin of word is to look at their etymology at their history. And we might find that a word is actually connected to the ancient Greek language or to Latin or the ancient language of India called Sanskrit or Arabic for that matter. And not just that, but that these different. Historical pathways intermingle with each other and are connected. So as we look at them, we become aware of the true reasons and intents behind the creation of a word and how over time new intentions emerged, new cultural movements, propaganda and other things affect the meaning that we collectively associate with a word. So this alone is fascinating, but at the same time, there are other dimensions of language, for instance, The dimension of language mysticism or sound mysticism, what that means is that if you didn't know the language that I was speaking right now, words would just be sounds to your ears. But if you knew the language that I was speaking, then each word would create an image in your mind, [00:02:00] would trigger different thoughts and different images, and will thus create a magical reality for you. And it is no surprise that words like grammar and spelling are actually connected to words like spell, Which means to morph, to change your perception, so in fact, when we speak language, we are casting spells in a way. And when we hear languages, spells are being cast. So wouldn't it be nice that we became conscious of what was the reality that we were creating through the sounds that we're producing and through the sounds that we're hearing? Wouldn't this be very useful if you are hearing propaganda or lies that want to trigger anxiety or fear in you? So these are just some of the pathways, and I'm sure that there are many more, and I will love to hear from you. What are your comments and your thoughts on other pathways that we could explore in this series? These episodes are gonna be a little shorter, perhaps half an hour. , I look forward to being on this journey with you, and I hope that you will join me. Thank you.
