Bureau of Lost Culture – How to Expand Your Consciousness: Part 1 (02/09/2023)
Philosophy as Counterculture.
For thousands of years, humans have been trying to expand this mysterious thing called consciousness, not only by drugs, dancing, art and spiritual practice but just by thinking, talking and arguing. But is philosophy for anyone – or just for the elite in their ivory towers and universities? Can it be of the street, can it be counterculture?
We try and find out – in the company of philosopher Robert Rowland Smith, author of several books including The Reality Test and the bestseller Breakfast with Socrates.
We also get deep into David Lynch, R D Laing, how the living and the dead can communicate, the expansion of unconsiousness, Constellation work and whether Jacques Derrida was a psychedelic.
