Quote:Writer, speaker, filmmaker, podcaster and cultural theorist J. F. Martel joins the show this week to explore art, creativity, UFOs and the Imaginal.
  • We discuss C. G. Jung, David Lynch, Ramsay Dukes, Bergson, and Corbin.
  • We look at what insights might come from having a better definition of ‘image’ when it comes to UFO phenomena.
  • We talk about creativity as and with magic.
And generally try to wrestle down to earth something approaching a Grand Unified Weird Theory.
Super fun, super deep discussion. Download the audio version here or watch along on YouTube below.

Gordon White always comes across as very amiable with his guests, but sometimes when he finishes I find it hard to know what I have learned.

The one definite thing I took away from this talk is that we should shun debates like do UFO's travel here, or are they a phenomenon related to consciousness. We should concentrate on the idea that our reality admits both possibilities.

Yeah they actually touch on a lot of stuff relating to the Imaginal and the Invisible before discussing UFOs. I do suspect the reality of UFOs is quite strange, and likely a combination of different phenomena with some of it being more related to a spirit world or alternative dimensions and some of it maybe being visitors from other planets who have a better understanding of this universe and its non-material aspects.
