How do we survive the apocalypse? Spoiler alert: there is no apocalypse.
Join Audra and I in this mind-bending conversation about philosophy's role in politics, cults, population density, and isolation.
Outro provided by Brock Tanya as per usual.
Still working on part 2 of The Stranger, but I should be able to get that out next weekend. I apologize for the delay.

We both listened to the the Joe Rogan podcast episode #1945 with Eric Weinstein who had an amazing idea that went something like this:
So, there’s an uncontacted tribe off the coast of India that have no idea what civilization is, have no knowledge of technology (except the boats and planes they see), and don’t even know there is such a thing called “India” that owns them. So, what if we’re an uncontacted planet? What if an alien civilization owns us and they simply don’t let other alien civilizations contact us, including themselves.
We also discussed the artist San Holo, and talked about water and roots in context of the Tao Te Ching. Peace out. Not sponsored by Elysian brewing, but I want to be.
I discuss the importance of gratitude as well as the arguments for and against universal beauty (tackling free will, God vs atheism, the biological explanation, whether beauty actually is universal, etc.). I also go over my view on religion, and why I think atheists don’t give theists enough credit.
Vincent Field is the author of “Astral Projection and Lucid Dreaming – Spiritual Revelations and Out-of-Body Experiences in Higher Dimensions: A Complete Guide to Exploring Nonphysical Reality”. We discussed astral projection, lucid dreaming, techniques on how to do both, as well as Vincent’s own experiences with each. If you seek guidance on how to astral project/lucid dream, hit up Vincent on Discord at VinceField#3962. His book is available on Amazon here: https://amzn.to/3xnwlXk
