    183 Eternity's Sunrise ( William Blake)

    He who binds to himself a joy
    Does the winged life destroy
    He who kisses the joy as it flies
    Lives in eternity's sunrise.

    182 : changing the Habitual Body

    182 : changing the Habitual Body

    The Habitual Body is like an exoskeleton of thoughts, preconceptions, karmic traces, emotions and aspirations. Some are obvious and familiar. Others are hidden and delicate but no less powerful.

    172 why is karma

    172 why is karma

    Perhaps Karma is embedded in the universe in the same way gravity, electromagnetism and Newton's laws of Thermodynamics. In which case why ask why? But still, I do.

    171 Vonnegut and Homer - Stories of a Good Dog

    171 Vonnegut and Homer - Stories of a Good Dog

    My dog (Reggie) died recently which makes me very sad and reminds of two other good dogs.  Argos ( who waited for Odysseus's return and was the first being to recognise him) and Kazak, the Space Dog, who along with Winston Rutherford phases in and out of the galaxy in a Chrono-synclastic infundibulation ( Vonnegut, Sirens of Titan).

    170: time, a corporate job and meditation

    170: time, a corporate job and meditation

    The quality of time, the 'kinds' of time that occur during a day at my corporate job helps to think about the moments in meditation.

    169: socratic aporia and quantum uncertainty

    169: socratic aporia and quantum uncertainty

    The state of Bafflement gives rise to realisation, wonders, concerns, confusion, theories, hypotheses and notions.  I'd suggest that the intent of a dialogue with Socrates is to give rise to that phenomenon of Bafflement - rather than to actually answer any possible question.  And that this Bafflement is also the necessary precursor to approaching the role of the observer in Quantum physics.

Pure inspiration

I’m so happy this podcasts exists. I’ve discovered so many new and interesting pieces of music and poetry, authors, ideas, brand new ways of looking at the world. For the creative mind, listening to these episodes is like wood for the fire.

Very interesting!

I’ve listened to nearly every episode. I too am a hurdy gurdy playing, meditating psychogeographer. I love hearing about the former two things in your life, especially the meditation practice. I would love to hear a lot more about psychogeography, what it is and how you use it. Since it’s in the headline of your show, a psychogeographing segment in each show would be wonderful.

Great job! It’s a unique show.

Articulate and visionary

Some sound issues still being worked out, but a great start. Very intelligent, with an interesting breadth of topic choice, unique. Plus a sexy speaking voice.
