AGAINST EVERYONE with CONNER HABIB: Ep 5 – The Astronaut’s Thumb or The Contraction of Time & Space

12 Aug
Episode 5 of Against Everyone with Conner Habib is where things get, you know, a little weird. But in a totally understandable way.
Here’s me talking about space and time, and how our actual experiences – not just our ideas – of them are changing, and how that’s affecting the rest of our cultural world.
In Episode 5, I Talk About
  • Leaving dumb brain mapping and reductive evolutionary biology perspectives behind when discussing consciousness and culture
  • The European philosopher Jean Gebser and how his concept of “mutations” of consciousness show a shift in the 15th and 16th Centuries like the one we’re experiencing today
  • The Moon landing as the beginning of contracting space with our hands
  • How we all have astronaut thumbs
  • Changes in the field of labor (Like I mention in AEWCH Ep 3)
  • The compensation of making more space virtually available by trading in bodily movement
  • Pokémon Go as the conflict between old and new space
  • Why do we take so many pictures?
  • How the motion of our hands has outrun time
  • The internet as an attempt to summon the Akashic Record
  • The nightmarish Buddhism of facebook
  • How new time & space give rise to anxiety and depression
  • Why all this bad news is good news
