IGC 49 - Paul Levy

Jason Abbott welcomes author Paul Levy to the show. We discuss one of his recent books, Dispelling Wetiko: Breaking the Curse of Evil. Wetiko is an illusive virus of the mind that is hard to study as it seems to be non-local, non-dual, and ineffable at its core. The modern equivalent could be considered Malignant Egophrenia. We also chat about the mental health system, the war on consciousness, and a bit on shamanism.
