“UFOs Exist and…”



Why is the US Department of Defense suddenly admitting the reality of UFOs? Why has the Post, the NY Times, and other mainstream media outlets suddenly changed the way they report on UFOs?

Is this a prelude to Full Disclosure?

Or is this actually all they know?

Author Jeremy Johnson is here to discuss the phenomenon, what the opening of the gate means, and what it means that we all “need to adjust” to this new reality.

 

 

 

 


Game of Thrones Decompression.



Or should that be “Decomposing?” Hmm…

Here is a fun talk I had with Jeremy Johnson on the last episode and last season of Game of Thrones.  Much like our talks on Westworld Season 2, this conversation took place immediately after the finale aired and represented our instant opinions. Jeremy and I dig pretty deep to talk about the philosophy, societal impact, and evolutionary qualities of the show.

And this is Part 1, too, because we did a follow up a few days later on Jeremy’s podcast, “Mutations” (which you can see here). For that show, we had a week’s worth of external critical reactions that we could react to. Also, in a fun continuation of something begun on this episode of WYT, we brainstorm alternative endings, both to the final episode and to the entire final season of Game of Thrones.

Long story short… I loved Game of Thrones and really wanted the ending to live up to what came before. Sadly, I don’t think it did. But there is still a lot to love here. And it did have its moments…

And this video, I think, will represent my last attempt to get the green screen right. I think I’ve just got to give up on that. Check out the last podcast video with Jeff Salzman and tell me if you agree that the big map on the wall of my office is better than the pixelated, almost-cool-but-not-really green screen.

 


What’s Your Theory… Now?



Well, I’m back!  Sorry about the long hiatus, but you know how it is with producing free media like this… sometimes you have to back burner it. But I never stopped thinking about the show and now, “What’s Your Theory?” is back. Let’s call this Season 2.

I’m lining up some great guests for more interviews that pertain, in one way or another, to the evolution of human consciousness and the perpetual struggle to ensure a future more like Star Trek and less like Planet of the Apes and it’s shaping up to be a great summer for WYT.

 

Besides regular interviews with new guests, I also have an idea to add shows with some of our regular guests that will be a little bit more formatted than in the past. The idea is to have conversations on current culture (politics, film &TV, internet culture… etc) as seen through the lens of our regulars’ various specialties.  Something like… “What happened in the world this week from an Integral Theory perspective with Jeff Salzman of the DailyEvolver.com,” or in Consciousness Evolution with Jean Gebser scholar Jeremy Johnson.  So, basically, the same kind of conversations you are used to hearing with me and the WYT regulars, but on up to the minute topics, some heavy, some light, all fascinating and designed to not let the Apes win.

First up, our friend Jeff Salzman returns with an injection of wisdom to help get the show going again. This is a good one.

This week: Post-Modernism, Modernism, and Traditionalism have a hard enough time getting along as it is… How are the three dominant tiers of consciousness handling a blast from the past as President Trump injects the pre-traditional Warrior mode, dominated by fight-or-flight reactions and zero-sum politics into the modern world? Answer: Sad.

And: You say the Game of Thrones final season has bummed you out? Well, Jeff has only binge-watched through season 3… you know, when it was still all the things you loved about it. So I thought it would be fun to turn back the clock to the good days and take a look at peak GoT through Integral lenses. And you know what? I was right.

I hope you’ll stick around for a full Summer of WYT!

Remember it helps a lot when you subscribe to whatever delivery system you are using to watch or listen to the show. And don’t hesitate to ask a question or tell me what’s on your mind.

And finally, there is only one way to financially support the show, and that’s to open your mind and soul to the rocket-powered roller coaster of suspense, romance and epic mult-lifetime-spanning adventure of the Kings X Saga. These are books, people. The stay-up-all-night-reading kind.

Black Sheep Souls is on the way, but why wait when you can blow your mind today!
