0012 - The dream of Life, engineering a utopia

The Unlearning Playground

12-04-2022 • 24 mins

A meditative discourse on spirituality, philosophy and its utility in our everyday lives.

I walk through an understanding of the root of eastern philosophy - The Advaita Vedanta or Nonduality - via the metaphor of dreams.

And then I talk about how the realisations that follow this understanding, can actually lead to a better future for ourselves, for humanity and for Life at large.

Did I do any justice to the big claims?
Only one way to find out.
Tune right in.

I'll see you in the playground.
