My guest today is Michael Garfield, a writer, musician, artist, poet-philosopher, paleontologist-futurist who's setting the seeds for a planetary renaissance. With incisive eloquence, he takes the threads of technology, science, and the wonders of the natural world to weave together a cosmic story of Life, one that needs to be shared more wildly.
In our conversation we cover:
Corona virus and the epistemic crisis
Community and fragmentation
Evolution as a multi-billion year remix project
Psychedelics as training wheels for transhumanism
Nested complexity, restoring democracy, and regenerative communities
