Episode 79

The fifth in a series of episodes wherein Juliet and I begin by jointly consulting the I Ching (ancient Chinese oracle), getting hexagram 4 "Youthful Folly", and then see where that goes. This time we continue to explore the extent to which entities can "experience" the world, moving on to human-animal communication, human-plant communication, the problematic dominance of the "machine" metaphor for biological entities, then veering wildly through Buddhist ideas of non-self, solipsism, and the burning of wood understood as photosynthesis in reverse, or a "releasing of trapped sunlight".
