Watch and React – “Groundhog Day”



Ever feel like every day is the same and nothing you do matters?  Really? Hmm… well, maybe we should talk about this…

 

Jeff Salzman of DailyEvolver.com returns for an Integral Chat where we watch and react to the 1993 classic of comedy, romance, and Consciousness Evolution… Groundhog Day!

Of course you’ve seen it. You probably love it. And if you are reading a post here, watching on youtube, or listening to a WYT podcast… you most likely have a profound thought or two about it.

This is a good one, folks. One of my all time favorite films and a really good talk with Jeff.

So kick back, stay a while, and don’t forget to subscribe wherever or however you are listening.

 

Thanks as always, and come back soon for another Deep Dive with Jeremy Johnson as we tackle “Bladerunner” and “Bladerunner 2049” in about one week from now.


Kiksuya means Remember



“Kiksuya” is Lakota for “Remember.” Episode 8 was the best episode of Westworld Season 2 so far. Maybe the best of the series as well.

Jeremy D. Johnson returns for another Deep Dive. Today we talk Shamanism, the birth of mythologies from personal experience to group recognition, when Dante met Beatrice, the decent into the underworld, Integral Yoga, and much more as we Dive Deep into episode 2.8

These Deep Dives are not Recaps and they do contain Spoilers. We talk about the philosophy, mythology, and cultural impact of stories and events that strike a chord.

Westworld is some of the smartest Sci-fi to come along in a while, and we’re doing Deep Dives for every episode of Season 2. New episodes every Tuesday! Don’t forget to subscribe (above!) and tell us what you think (below!)

Please don’t forget to subscribe on your favorite podcast delivery system and/or to the What’s Your Theory Youtube channel!  Thanks!

Talking Esoterica w/ Mitch Horowitz



Fear will hold you back from greatness. Collective fear of things we don’t yet understand holds us all back at once.

Today on the show, a conversation with Mitch Horowitz on why so many people seem so scared of all things new and certainly all things esoteric…even the nice stuff like the power of positive thinking.

Mitch Horowitz is an author, publisher, and lecturer who “treats esoteric ideas and movements with an even-handed intellectual studiousness that is too often lost in today’s raised voice discussions.” (Washington Post)

I’ve owned his first book, “Occult America,” for several years and it’s one of my favorite works of non-fiction to come around in a long while. In a world rather unevenly divided between a “mainstream” and “not-mainstream,” Mitch Horowitz has been a champion of occult and esoteric ideas, and their place in our history, bringing important but neglected ideas from the edges and the shadows, into the light of everyday conversation where they probably should have been all along.

Everything moves in cycles. Today, Mitch Horowitz and I have a conversation about some ideas who’s time may be coming around at last… or maybe again.
