On 21 April 2010, I was the featured guest for San Francisco's Evolver Spore on the topic of Dreaming. Given my history as a contributor to the Evolver community and my recent research into the nature of dreams, it was a lucky set of circumstances that brought me to Sera Phi in San Francisco to engage the local crew in this far-roaming discussion.
The talk starts by mentioning the work of scientists like Darren Lipnicki, Michael Persinger, and Dan Winter, who have drawn some provocative correlations between electromagnetism and human consciousness. How do our electromagnetic environments affect our minds? What are the implications of this knowledge for our architecture, civic planning, and understanding of our place on this planet at large?
Conversation wandered into an investigation of astrology and its strange relationship to the scientific method; mapping the body of time; whether people on different continents actually dream DIFFERENTLY; using dream engineering as a weapon; and, of course, a bit of practical advice for dreamers of all stripes.
