Marco, as promised, I have viewed our dialogue and made some notes. Here are a few ideas for near future Cafe events and other possibilities-
Vision and prayer-sometimes it’s prophecy-sometimes prayer-and in the New Axial Age prayer isn’t just transcendental-a prayer that focuses energy-drawing upon a vision and pushing into the pragmatic-what should be-
Adjacent possibilities that arise from this dialogue.
How can we move towards a sunshine economy?
A workshop for Nihilists-how do we get in touch with our inner Nihilist? Since you are going to die anyway, why bother? Exploring Idealist and Materialist forms of Nihilism. And what does the Nihilist want to have happen?
