Ep. 127: Yoga Sutras of Patanjali
This episode is taken from a recent livestream in which Jason dives deep on why developing a deep Meditation practice is the most profound and important magickal practice of all, how the process of Raja Yoga strips away illusions in order to awaken to one’s true nature, and why Meditation is a crucial aspect of human evolution. Jason discusses this by exploring the ultimate source text on this subject, the ancient document The Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.

Ep. 122: JAMES JOYCE'S ULYSSES With Frankie Gaffney
ULYSSES by James Joyce is not only one of the greatest novels ever written (perhaps THE greatest), but also a watershed in the development of Western consciousness. Its sprawling, Hermetic, often explicitly magical narrative explores the profound resonances of a single day, eternity in a grain of sand.
For this episode, Irish novelist Frankie Gaffney returns to discuss Ulysses and its profound cultural impact, and just in time for the one hundreth anniversary of the publication of the book.

Listened to the Zerzan interview. The only way to save the planet is by a huge reduction in the human population. Some countries are experiencing declining populations but probably not fast enough or large enough to stop global warming. I agree with Louv that China won't become the leading global power. It's a very xenophobic country that freaks out when there is too much foreign influence. There are already signs that the current regime is losing its "mandate of heaven" and will begin to close off to the world. It's a cyclical pattern in their history.
Good podcast. Knowledgeable dude. But…..
I wish his core material wasnt so much. Ive heard him say that many of his students told him he should be charging way more for his stuff. But not all of us are employed by the tech industry with so much spare money to spend. This literally means that his students are trying to gate keep knowledge and think others should be priced out. These students are elitists that think knowledge isnt for the poor. Typical wannabe elitism.
This show by Louv is hot fetid garbage. Why some interesting people decide to go on Jason’s podcast is beyond me.
Late stage capitalism on high display with this weak hustle. Definitely not for me.
