    Fascinating. I have to find these as soon as i figure out how to use my Android podcast app better.

    I may just have to download them all and take them with me.

    Nothing here seems to be dated,,, is the site still updated?

      Hi, I released a new podcast just a couple of days ago. I’m thinking of scrapping the QM videos for the moment though, because my drawing just looks awful.

    Are you familiar with the electromagnetic theories of consciousness? This almost appears to be an elaborate and fabulous summary of Cemi Theory and Amit Goswami’s The Quantum Activist. Either way, I love that someone has chosen to start a podcast about it. I have been extremely interested in learning more about these things as well as interested in what other’s perceptions/perspectives of these subjects are.
