The Gebser Conference is in Melbourne this Thursday to Saturday. I’ll be there on Saturday, batting for the Daily Grail and looking very confused.

Much thanks to Greg and Kat.

Quote of the Day:

[O]ne can only wonder how the seemingly subtle process of transforming the inner sphere of consciousness — no longer squandering ‘free time,’ but using it to attain ‘time freedom’ — could provide any defense from the catclysmic ravages and global meltdowns to be expected when our “superannuated spatial world” crashes and burns, “as everything that becomes lifeless and rigidified breaks apart,” a collapse that appears to be approaching us at high speed. Gebser’s answer to this is similar to Sri Aurobindo’s, Jung’s, Goswami’s, and Steiner’s: If “mind-stuff,” rather than matter, is the fundamental ground of being, then a transformation of consciousness has, potentially, far-reaching effects — not just in the psychic world, but in the one we perceive to be physical, as well.
