Media Astra Ac Terra Episode 26 is now available for download! In this episode, we look at Neptune in the Astra segment, and the mineralogy and metaphysics of aquamarine (and beryl in general) in the Terra segment. Then in the main show I talk about some central concepts in Alfred Korzybski’s General Semantics, about the way we perceive and interpret what we quaintly like to call “reality.”
In the introduction, I mentioned National Novel Writing Month, the annual November challenge to write 50,000 words of a novel within one month. Fun, fun, fun!
I also mentioned a few books during the episode. Once again, I quoted from Robert Hand’s Horoscope Symbols in the Astra segment; it’s really one of my favorites. In the main show, I mentioned Robert Anton Wilson’s Quantum Psychology (which I found to be a fun and interesting book, “quantum” or not) and Drive Yourself Sane by Susan and Bruce Kodish. And, of course, there’s Alfred Korzybski’s massive Science and Sanity. You can find out more about Korzybski and General Semantics at the website of the Institute of General Semantics.
Thanks for listening, and I hope you enjoy the show!
