Re-sharing a conversation we did with Daniel Pinchbeck, for the new feed!
I found Pinchbeck’s 2006 book 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl highly influential when I read it in 2015, for the most part a sober and strange accounting of the crack-up of materialist reality we’re all living. Fifteen years after the book was published, I’d say that much of Pinchbeck’s conception of the moment we are living through is vindicated.
About a year ago, we had a fascinating conversation about materialism, consciousness, and the blurry line between the mythic and the real. Enjoyable talk: check it out.
Also: Pinchbeck posts regular essays on Substack, and just shared a free chapter from 2012 in audiobook form. Check that out here.
