Podcast 448 – “The Cosmic Nervous System”

Guest speaker: Bernardo Kastrup

Brief Peeks Beyond by Bernardo Kastrup

PROGRAM NOTES:

Today Bernardo Kastrup returns to the salon with more metaphysical speculations. Supplementing his recently released book, “Brief Peeks Beyond,” he touches on the so-called hard problem of consciousness faced by materialists. In his examination of the dominant materialistic world view, Bernardo reveals the forces behind our value systems, which in turn determine our behavior. He ends with some very concrete suggestions for five things each of us can do to make the world a little better. However, my favorite section of this talk comes when he suggests that cosmic consciousness at-large may actually be experiencing what we humans call multiple personality disorder.

Podcast 434 – “The Metaphysics of the Psychedelic Experience”

Guest speaker: Bernardo Kastrup

Bernardo Kastrup

PROGRAM NOTES:

[NOTE: All quotations are by Bernardo Kastrup.]

“It is not the mind that is in the body. It is the other way around. It’s the body that is in the mind.”

“In the same way that there is nothing to a whirlpool but water, I claim there is nothing to a brain-body system but consciousness.”

“The psychedelic trance allows us to ‘see the stars at noon’ because it simply eclipses the sun of egoic-awareness. It reduces the obfuscation and allows us to see more.”

“I believe that the key insight from the psychedelic experience, the key metaphysical insight about it, is not what the nature of the psychedelic realm is. In fact, I think the key insight is about the nature of our everyday reality.”
