About

Podcasts from the Psychedelic Salon are a production of MatrixMasters.com, which is operated by Lorenzo, who is also the original producer of the Palenque Norte lecture series at Burning Man.

The mission of Matrix Masters can best be summed up in the lines Franklin Rosemont wrote in his introduction to the writings of Slim Brundage, where he described Chicago’s famous College of Complexes:

The aim of the College of Complexes, as an educational / recreational forum, was neither to recruit members nor to mobilize troops for the achievement of specific goals, but rather to inform, agitate, educate, emancipate, provoke, inspire, offend, scandalize, tickle, and excite.*

Well, our aim here at Matrix Masters is to provoke an unmuffled, ungagged, and unsilenced generation of world citizens into speaking up and taking the actions necessary to wrest control from the privileged few and to reclaim this planet in the name of all the humans, animals, plants, and other forms of life who share its bounty.

And about our name, “Matrix Masters,” we intend this as reminder that ultimately YOU are your very own Master of the Matrix

Definition: matrix — a mould, environment, or substance in which a thing is developed, a womb.
