DUE TO TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES, WE"RE DOING THIS AGAIN 17 MARCH @ 10 AM PACIFIC:
https://plus.google.com/u/0/events/cfebq9il6g077vfu3uhkcni7rto

Join Erik Davis and Michael Garfield for a live webcast discussion on the themes of Erik's soon-to-be-reissued book, Techgnosis: Myth, Magic, and Mysticism in the Age of Information.

Erik Davis (San Francisco) is one of our culture's weirdest and most wonderful writers – a culture critic and religious scholar whose writing spans the visionary culture of California, black metal philosophy, stage magic, neuroscience, and psychedelic transhumanism (for starters).

Michael Garfield (Austin) is the editor-in-chief of visionary art website SolPurpose and covers science, art, and spirituality for Globalish.
This Hangout On Air is hosted by Michael Garfield. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

...And here it is, a new (very) short essay on writing accompanied by the most comprehensive archive of my pieces on (everything, including) music, science, art, futurism, spirituality, and other freaky shit, dating back to 2007.

Enjoy!

Story

Imagination is our greatest natural resource.
Introduction
"Michael is a bio-mechanical lightning rod, he possess a keen intellect and possibly too much talent, and I have never seen him do anything other than stimulate, antagonise, elevate, shake-not-stir, and generally get involved in the center of where ever his roaming griot spirit might be..." - James Oroc, author of Tryptamine Palace "A true artist by nature, his star shines bright wherever he is performing or with whatever type of project he chooses to tackle." - Lost in Sound.org "Regardless of medium, [Michael] is able to express himself uniquely and passionately, and inspire others in the process. Be sure to check out his excellent work." - Incision News "An accomplished writer, performer, composer and painter on top of being a skilled guitarist...His personality is as interesting and compelling as his music and art." - Guitar International
