Conversation with Cedomir on why all the enlightenment in the world hasn’t changed the world one iota, the forces of counter-enlightenment, the vale of soul-making, and the question of what constitutes humanity.
Part One: Whistling to the Gallows (0 – 32 mins)
A credulous skeptic, whistling to the gallows, faith in the face of torture, rumors of enlightenment, Krishnamurti’s dying claim, a counter-force to enlightenment, what collective awakening might look like, a social movement, covid-19 and a planetary something, nonplayer characters, a viral phenomenon, why there are no enlightenment pride parades, unremitting darkness in the Kali Yuga, conquering death, a guiding light, being outnumbered.
Part Two: Causal Agent of Enlightenment (32 – 58 mins)
The nature of the world, Keats’ gravestone, the vale of soul-making, Christ’s torturous process, what went wrong, a purpose to the wrongness, Dave Oshana as causal agent of enlightenment, questioning the transmission, attending a free event, not-a-guru, working with large numbers, moving from mind to senses, becoming less burdened, enlightenment transmission and individual life force, the price Jesus paid, spreading enlightenment on a numerative basis, accessing the life force, a refracting system, shards of the human soul.
Part Three: Where Empathy Begins (58 mins – 1 hr 31 mins)
Mind-skepticism that becomes obsolete, prosthetic limbs of humanity, the false myth of humanity, compassion & frustration for the lost, interacting with humans in the thrift store, those beyond saving, non-sentient bodies, the identity as energy drain, investing in images, the original discordant note, a growing knot, conception vortex and diminishing life force, the image of distortion, ancestral conditioning, acknowledging an anti-human force, Satan’s asshole, discerning who to help, misery junkies, where empathy begins, showing up for loved ones.
Part Four: A Serbian Warrior (1 hr 31 mins – end)
The center of the self, Dave’s head-hunting, an invisible team, a self-selective process, the guru scene, a more passive process, the solution to being born in Hell, the procedure when everything’s been coopted, mapping an endless tunnel, seeing the light, the pseudo-solution of “spirituality,” mass-produced fake-awakenings, turning away from enlightenment, the value of a skeptic’s testimony, a Serbian warrior.
