    I think some UAPs are real aliens or AI robots. The fact that they can disappear or change may be a form of "cloaking" or manipulation of oour consciousness. Some phenomena could be akin to fairies and be projections of the unconscious. thanks for the talk! 🌿

    No, people need a Person Whose Name is the Holy Ghost. The pendulum of materialism swung so far one way, that it is now swinging to the other extreme, which is exactly what the arch-daimon intended. Don't be fooled by the father of lies. Invoke ONLY the Spirit of Truth and LIVE. Jung was a dæmoniac and an idolater.

    Mr Hapur is brilliant and extremely well spoken. Thanks for suggesting the close captioning, (also exquisite) it helped decifer terms unfamiliar to me.

    Yes, the word "consciousness" seems to rattle around one's skull like the clanger in a bell but "Soul" gets you right in the midriff! Thanks for a lovely and inspiring conversation! 😊

    Heraclitus was not mentioned. He said that the Logos is common to all. It was intuition, deeper than reason. From Plato on the Logos was seen as reason. In Christianity Christ was seen as not just one with the Logos but as actually being the Logos, Christ Consciousness, the perception of God as All. Cosmic Consciousness was expansive and attributed to Christ as he had awareness of God as nature and also as transcendent to nature: Spinoza in contrast saw God as nature but did not see or believe that God was also transcendent to nature. Which meant that if nature ended and God was confined to nature God would also end which makes no sense.

    It can't be freely chosen nor not-chosen because the non-egoic "essence" of the potentiated properties/attributes/qualities of ones "Nous" are without dyadic awareness and non-awareness, these things self-select at infinite speeds without cognitive perception through an egoic construct of a placeholder "self". Its hard deterministically random and arbitrary generated in the "Pleroma" in a state of a-moral indifferent meta-innocence. Necessity is a product of di-vision and lacking from existential egoic formulation of lethe/spiritual forgetfulness/death. This guy is just a rambling on intoxicated romantic into the fake world of the demiurgos Lucifer/Yaldabaoth/Logos and has no solid metaphysical meta-schema to ground anything he is saying in or any spiritual meta-memory from past sim cycles. No discernment either to anything he is saying daimon this, demon that, no navigational understanding of the astral or aetheric planes.

    I was largely onboard until Patrick claimed that Victorian spiritualist parlour games, things we very well understand these days, were genuine supernatural events.

    The kind of conversation that opens the gates of diamonds, here and there … just to explore and see so many worlds rising from within the forever alive imagination.

    Thank you for this podcast. What a treasure!

    This is a very interesting interview, and I enjoyed Patrrick’s take on things. I am finding that as I listen to eloquent, educated and thoughtful men so much, however, that the one aspect of humanity they always exclude is the role of women including women’s experience, silence, feminine manifestation in the realm of art/religion/birth/death/marriage/power etc etc etc. All of it. Patrick mentioned Iris Murdoch in this talk and her highlighting the role of a mother who lives as profound a life as a philosopher. Great to hear. But then men’s influence gets full sway as ever, disregarding the fact that the feminine has been kicked into touch like a rugby ball.

    Men have had their chance and have fucked up. Mightily. Men are so fond of their own thoughts and telling us all about them, quoting other men and their great thoughts who refer to other men and their great thoughts ad infinitum. And many are greatly interesting. Often it’s all we have been subject to throughout our education. I agree with Patrick that the world is reflected in what we see and what we imagine.

    To extrapolate, surely the messed-up state we are in is an echo of the weight given to the power-over male view and his endless dissemination/mansplaining of ideas? Man shall have all dominion and all that… it’s usually about the through-line of the hero’s quest, A to Z. Patrick explores other notions of the imaginal so beautifully but please acknowledge and differentiate the feminine in your musings.

    This is not making any sense (to me). There's a fundamental difference between silicon and copper (or whatever computers are made of these days) on rhe one hand and a combo of carbon and water on the other hand (add a little nitrogen, sulpher and phosphorus for good measure) ??!
    It's all made of electrons and protons (add some neutrons for good measure (to controle the protons))
    Consciousness is not independed of the medium? Are you really saying there's some "consciousness" essence to carbon (just add a little water😅) but not to silicon?!
    Please feel free to convince me otherwise (liefst in Nederlands, maar Engels is ook goed)

    With the rise of AI, will there be a "fall" within the metaverse. The "fall" understood as a metaphor for dissociated self-conscious parts of the greater metaverse. Will there then be competing self-conscious parts fighting and killing each other for dominion.

    This is amazing I have never come across Patrick Harpur and I have to know more about him and I’ve never come across this channel either so subscribed and thank you for this. How did you contact him is he doing any talks.

    I would like to thank you both for such an insightful conversation. I came across Patrick’s work some years ago and was astonished by the clarity of his musings. Grounded and relevant, it’s added to dimension of my own experience. For example his thoughts on choosing a life; I had a dream as preschool child of doing just that, it has informed my life and given me a good deal of understanding, or can l say thrown light on the path. So thank you both again.

    What a richness of content and ideas! So many useful insights! Thank you sir for following your deamon and for your contribution to the exploration of the mind and our shared nature. The path you've gone through can be of help to all of us who still need to reveal our nature and being.

    I have seen many interviews/discussions with Patrick Harpur, this is by far the very best! I most enjoyed how the interviewer steered the conversation, yet let Harpur talk without interrupting his train of thought/responses. Wonderfully done. Plan on re-listening to this later this evening.
