Future Fossils: Living Through a Revolutionary Age

This past April, while attending the Psychedelic Science 2017 conference—hosted by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS)—I joined Michael Garfield in conversation on his podcast Future Fossils. Amidst the bustling crowds at the Oakland conference, which had a record-breaking 2,800 attendees, we discussed our current moment from an archetypal perspective. We looked at the connections between the current alignment of Jupiter, Uranus, and Pluto and the configuration of those same planets in the late 1960s, and how they relate to the psychedelic renaissance we are currently witnessing unfold in the larger culture. We also looked forward to the upcoming Saturn-Pluto conjunction that will be in the sky from 2018 through 2021, as well as touching on a range of other related topics.

  1. Enjoyed the equilibrium of confidence and competence in your podcast, not to mention the ending note of poetic wisdom: ‘Just keep going. No feeling is final.’ – Book of Hours
    PS: Your image above puts me in mind of Botticelli’s birth of Venus, yet your living beauty eclipses the past to reveal the hope of a better tomorrow.

    1. Thank you so much Jason! I’m glad you enjoyed the dialogue. I read one poem from Rilke’s Book of Hours each morning as I start my day, and that line emerged into my mind right at that moment at the end of the conversation.

      1. Your reading of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Poem “Mythopoeia” was awesome! You really let your hair down and went with the flow. Hopefully you can grace us with something from Rilke as well; with a little Enya as background music and some of your own paintings too…
