What is a meta-narrative? Here’s your chance to see the SWEDA method in action as a somewhat sun-baked (; )) but mostly coherent JK embarks on a bite-size vision quest under the influence, and does an animistic analysis of the signs as he goes. “If you want to know where you’re at, look around you.” Living in a consciousness system Universe means that our environment is in continuous communication with our consciousness, every single moment of our lives. Accepting this as a philosophical or magikal idea is one thing; living it in a moment-to-moment fashion is something else. A real examined life has less to do with sifting through one’s personal history, looking for meaning, than it does with allowing a living dialogue with one's surroundings. Most of you do this kind of thing when you’ve smoked enough pot or eaten some ‘shrooms. SWEDA teaches you how to do it all the time. JK shows how he does it, anyway; this episode was never intended to be a podcast, by the way, so beware of extreme tangents. Part two will be up on Friday.
