Project Archivist Apperances: Book and Podcast List

14b jul 2012


I was delighted to speak with Roejen Razorwire and Lobo Matias after listening to their podcast, and corresponding with them, for about eight years. It turns out that Roejen and I have had very similar experiences with telepathic empathy over the decades. Admitting such a thing in relation to the well being of a loved one is difficult enough to discuss openly in our culture, but we get into the stranger aspects of empathy where one can be privy to the more passionate doings of the people around you.

I was very nervous about addressing this topic publicly. Fortunately Roejen brought it up and we had an illuminating conversation about the path of the telepathic empath. What a treat to be able to speak frankly and honestly with a person who has had similar experiences! Lobo’s contributions were invaluable, transmitting the same information on esoteric practices from the Yin and Yang perspectives both should make this material more accessible to listeners.

I cannot adequately express my gratitude towards everyone who has listened to this conversation with open heart and mind. Roejen received many positive messages about this episode, and we spoke again a few days later to address the “Carbeque” and continue our former discussion.

I referenced many books and podcasts in these talks, so I’ve made a list of links. If I’ve missed something you’re interested please let me know and I’ll scare it up for you.

Bonus Hilarity

“Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony.

You can’t expect to wield supreme power just ’cause some watery tart threw a sword at you.

If I went around saying I was an emperor just because some moistened bint had lobbed a scimitar at me, they’d put me away.

However, given the current state of politics, I’m willing to consider alternatives to democracy

Anthony’s joke which I massacred at the end of the Stasis episode (the audio glitches didn’t help): The background to this joke is that Ida Craddock claimed to have married her beau from when she was a teenager – but that beau had died many years before he showed up as a spiritual being in Ms. Craddock’s consciousness and – well, between her legs. They had a very active and mystical sex life as a married couple even though he was beyond the grave.

So Anthony’s line was: “Don’t mind those slurping noises, dear, I’m just giving a spiritual blow job!”
