In this week’s podcast I talk about the importance and power of symbols, from corporate brands to spiritual images. We are influenced by these symbols from birth, yet we are encouraged to view life as a collection of nouns without meaning because we have lost the use of metaphorical language, which formed the worldview of our ancestors.
Progress is measured by our technological achievements and yet we still live in a world where many are starving or homeless. Before we launch ourselves into the future by merging with machines, we need to understand why we are so afraid of confronting the darkness within ourselves and society otherwise our evolution will only be skin deep. Viewing the full spectrum of life gives us the power to make the radical changes necessary to turn this world around.
