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.

I live my life in widening circles that reach out across the world. I may not complete this last one but I give myself to it. I circle around God, around the primordial tower. I've been circling for thousands of years and I still don't know: am I a falcon, ...

Took it to some good places, +Jason Silva .  Congrats on pushing past the rhetoric of wonder junkie-ism and embracing ethical responsibility – to see beyond the highs, to recognize the complications of embedding our desire for transcendence in external and prosthetic matrices...  +Erik Davis is a fine teacher and we're lucky he's around to light the way for us.  Hope you find the time to watch the conversation he and I enjoyed the same week that the two of you had yours...

One of the more compelling ideas for the origin of life is that it emerged in the proton gradients of hydrothermal sea vents.  But where else do we have proton gradients, water, and rich cocktails of available organic molecules?  COMETS.  It seems just as likely to me that life is jump-started on comets and takes root when they impact a suitable planet...

That's a fine sounding pedal!  Hopefully I’ll see some of you fellow gearhead viewers there! I play Levitation Festival on the Campground Stage, Saturday morning, with a full quartet expanding on my site-specific improvisation work. (Dang, this pedal would make a fine addition to my rig...) http://michaelgarfield.bandcamp.com
