I find that I have so much to say, and so few people to talk to. I tell myself: there must be someone like me who is lost. There must be someone who is trapped in their mind, unable to face the world that is right in front of them. And then I remember the paradox: that they are everywhere, all around me, each person the center of their own observable universe. Through connection, we long to escape the prison of our minds; to create meaning where there otherwise is none. For at least, we are in this together.

I’m really proud of this video. I’m a little sad that it didn’t get more traction than it did.

The Myth of Earthrise

The only myth that is going to be worth thinking about in the immediate future is one that is talking about the planet, not the city, not these people, but the planet, and everybody on it….When you see the earth from the moon, you don’t see any divisions there of nations or states. This might be the symbol, really, for the new mythology to come. That is the country that we are going to be celebrating.
With our view of Earthrise, we could see that the Earth and the heavens were no longer divided but that the Earth is in the heavens. There is no division and all the theological notions based on the distinction between the heavens and the Earth collapse with that realization. There is a unity in the universe and a unity in our own experience.
