Kai Wingo
PROGRAM NOTES:

A mushroom expert, Kai Wingo’s passion is highlighting the value of mushroom cultivation in the revitalizing of community. She is a mother, mycologist and lecturer on a quest to inspire reverence for earth’s exploratory treasures and in the utilization of their technology and curative abilities. Kai feels that if we, women especially, learn to embrace fungi as our allies, they will heal, empower and transform. In today’s program, Kai is interviewed by the salon’s resident correspondent, Shonagh Home.

[The following quotations are by Kai Wingo.]

“When you use entheogens you truly change minds, and that is what will truly make a change.”

“If you have the understanding that we are spiritual beings, the things that we do are spiritual. If we do it every morning, then it becomes ritual.”

You can find Kai and her grass roots effort, Kultured Mushrooms, on Facebook.

Brief Peeks Beyond by Bernardo Kastrup

PROGRAM NOTES:

Today Bernardo Kastrup returns to the salon with more metaphysical speculations. Supplementing his recently released book, “Brief Peeks Beyond,” he touches on the so-called hard problem of consciousness faced by materialists. In his examination of the dominant materialistic world view, Bernardo reveals the forces behind our value systems, which in turn determine our behavior. He ends with some very concrete suggestions for five things each of us can do to make the world a little better. However, my favorite section of this talk comes when he suggests that cosmic consciousness at-large may actually be experiencing what we humans call multiple personality disorder.

PROGRAM NOTES:

[NOTE: All quotations are by Terence McKenna.]

“After you fiddle with psilocybin for a while the question of whether or not there is an alien intelligence becomes moot.”

“We are embedding ourselves in a matrix of silicone and glass.”

“ We are beginning to embed ourselves into a cultural membrane of some sort.”

“What is happening is a globalizing of intelligence.”

“The reductionists who want to say these drugs just perturb the brain I don’t think have taken enough of these things.”

“Our problem is that we are in denial of our circumstance.”

“I think psilocybin three or four times a year definitely means that you are a psychedelic person. For sure it means that your every waking moment is informed and transformed by your relationship to this stuff. It doesn’t take very much because it’s a way of thinking.”

PROGRAM NOTES:

[NOTE: All quotations are by Chris Hedges.]

“I think when we speak today about American values what we’re really speaking about are corporate-instilled values.”

“When you spend over a decade brutalizing people, people become brutal.”

“You can’t use the word ‘liberty’ when your government watches you 24 hours a day. That’s the relationship of a master and a slave.”

“There is no difference between a night raid in Oakland and a night raid in Falluja . . . none!”

PROGRAM NOTES:

“What the NSA has done is essentially converted the Internet from this unprecedented zone of freedom into the most powerful means of surveillance ever known in human history.” -Glenn Greenwald

[NOTE: The following quotations are by Stefan Molyneux.]

“If we have a bitcoin universe, you don’t get to print money for war. You don’t get to have money for a prison/industrial complex. You don’t get money for a war on drugs. You have to ask the people.”

“So bitcoin gives us an opportunity to reclaim the power of the people to say yes or no to what the government claims that it wants to do.”

“Freedom for the government is enslavement for the people. When the government is free the people are enslaved. When the government is contained then the people are free.”

“To limit money is to limit political power.”

“If we have a bitcoin universe, you don’t get to print money for war. You don’t get to print money for a prison/industrial complex. You don’t get to print money for a war on drugs. You have to ask the people.”

“When you give government the power to control the money supply, it grows like a tumor until it extinguishes society itself.”

“There is going to be enormous amounts of resistance to the adoption of bitcoin, but I really believe that it’s about the most peaceful revolution that we can have in this world.”
