The Sagrada Familia is an obvious exception: Inside it feels like you've stepped off a spaceship on a distant planet a thousand years in the future.

The Church was once a tech lab—the stained glass, pipe organs, architecture, music, the written word—a temple at the bleeding edge of human innovation. Now the phone in your pocket is more impressive than any tech you'll find in a modern church.

"Your tastes must be taught to care about the nutrients." It's true but only if you've messed up the natural circuitry between taste and nutrition. Otherwise your sense of taste is there to point you towards the nutrients you need.

Feelings always care about facts. The problem is which ones—there are so many of them these days and most of them aren't worth caring about.

There’s a poverty of meaning that people are desperately trying to fill with politics. But politics is a poor substitute for the things that actually bring you meaning.

You and I now share bundles of poorly insulated electronic nerves. It’s a crude, embryonic system but … When you feel something, I feel something. When you think something, it rattles around in my head as well. The only way through this mess is Fear or Love. Pick one.

Our TED-Talk / YouTube style of public speaking is going to feel just as cringe worthy to our kids as a soap commercial from the 1950s.

At its core, religion is a search for what it means to be human. The most human thing about us is our technology.

Propaganda isn't a fly in the ointment of democracy. It's the glue that binds it together.

Counter cultures used to act like dev servers where we could experiment with new ways of being and then merge the working bits into mainstream culture. Now we're just uploading changes to the live servers and refreshing to see if anything broke.

I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by Mindfulness, fasting, hysterical, naked, dragging themselves through silent retreats at dawn looking for an enlightened fix, angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection

The Mindfulness Industrial Complex An antidote: keep your practice as mundane and instagram unfriendly as possible. And try to elevate the mundane and not-so-sexy drudgery of life into something a little holy.

It seems like as individual consciousness matures it roughly traces the evolution of consciousness in the species. Jung and Neumann saw that unfolding in the evolution of archetypes.

Consciousness arises out of communion. It's taken a while for that to really sink in. The one bit of me that feels like it's truly me only exists through dialogue. To be a person is to communicate.
