Are Materialist Philosophies Destroying Humanity?
Philosopher Bernardo Kastrup joins us this week, to discuss the concepts of idealism and panpsychism, and how they relate to the psychedelic experience. Kastrup explains that a conceptual understanding of idealism is not enough to fully grasp its truth – and that people must experience a non-dual state first-hand to truly comprehend its meaning.
- Psychedelics allowed Bernardo to take his philosophy from the conceptual to the experiential
- We discuss the difference between panpsychism (everything is conscious, or has consciousness) and idealism (everything is consciousness, or is in consciousness)
- Bernardo explains why the pervasive philosophy of ontological materialism could be the end of humanity
