    This video is a repost from Nate’s channel, ‘Grail Country’. We discuss Valentin Tomberg’s book ‘Meditations on the Tarot: A Journey into Christian Hermeticism’ and Christian esotericism more generally, how different esoteric perspectives unfolded throughout history, Rosicrucianism, freemasonry, perennialism and how these traditions deviate from Orthodox mysticism. We also discuss evolution and natural selection as a mythical narrative.

    Donald Hoffman is a cognitive psychologist and popular science author. He is a professor in the Department of Cognitive Sciences at the University of California, Irvine, with joint appointments in the Department of Philosophy, the Department of Logic and Philosophy of Science, and the School of Computer Science. He studies consciousness, visual perception and evolutionary psychology using mathematical models and psychophysical experiments. In this interview we discuss Prof. Hoffman’s work and theories on consciousness and the nature of reality, the limits of space-time, what evolution says about consciousness and how the latest mathematical theories about consciousness reflect positively on many ancient spiritual traditions.

Essential Jonathan Pageau

Always essential listening for anyone curious about the symbolic meaning of all around us. Jonathan has been critical for my own personal journey back into faith, breathing life over the cold rocks of a religious education that left me, and many others, nihilistic, morally relativistic and confused. His discussions and monologues are more akin to reading Teresa of Avila than anything else as it provides a sense of kinship with those artists, speaking personally, who encounter and exist in the liminal space between the narrative world and the profane and would otherwise feel thoroughly insane. When you experience the synchronicities in the world, reading the mystics, learning from artists like Cecil Collins and listening to the words of Jonathan Pageau and his network is a restorative balm. Thanks Jonathan, you're a legend
