The alienation from the self is a consequence of being a mechanistic part of a social class, the condition of which estranges a person from their humanity.

In this episode we consider the effect of meditation practice and classical enlightenment on sexuality, as we continue the ongoing conversation between: - Shinzen Young, meditation teacher and neuroscience research consultant - Chelsey Fasano, a Columbia University neuroscience student - Dr Jay Sanguinetti, Assistant Director for the Center for Consciousness Studies and Research Professor at the University of New Mexico We recall Leigh Brasington's statements in episode 115 that many of his students experience states of meditative absorption as erotic in nature, and we consider Chelsey's observation that Leigh's brain scans in these absorption states resemble images of the brain during orgasm. I contrast early Buddhist scriptural statements which state that it is impossible for enlightened people to have sexual intercourse with later, highly sexual accounts of enlightened masters such as ‘The Saint of 5000 Women', Drukpa Kunley, and Rinzai saint and erotic poet Ikkyū Sōjun, and pose the question, ‘What does the data say?'. In the face of this apparent disagreement within the wisdom traditions about the effect of realisation on sexuality, what trends have the panel observed in the sexuality of their meditation students, and in their ultra-sound subjects, and what might that tell us about the real world consequences of deep meditation practice and/or brain stimulation aimed at classical enlightenment. … Video version: https://www.guruviking.com/ep119-sex-and-enlightenment-shinzen-young-chelsey-fasano-dr-jay-sanguinetti/ Also available on Youtube, iTunes, & Spotify – search ‘Guru Viking Podcast'. … Topics include: 00:00 - Intro 01:29 - Jhana and orgasm 04:31 - Buddha vs Durkpa Kunley 11:07 - Shinzen on the sutras 15:12 - Who was Drukpa Kunley? 17:13 - Ikkyu and Zen 18:52 - Are arhats impotent? 22:37 - Jay on relationship to drives 24:33 - Screwing up on the job 26:43 - Different practices, different results? 31:12 - Being enlightened vs acting enlightened 36:07 - The single most important factor 39:22 - What is integration? 44:47 - Ethical guidelines vs commandments 50:53 - What does the data say? 56:33 - Neuroscience interventions in sexuality 01:01:58 - A logical conundrum 01:03:08 - Shinzen's experience from the field 01:06:23 - Can any human being be free of sin? 01:08:13 - Benchmarks vs complete liberation as an end point 01:10:58 - What does it mean to be a certified a teacher 01:13:36 - Jay analyses the logic 01:16:25 - Chelsey's dimensional analysis 01:18:53 - A job for applied category theory 01:24:00 - Shinzen's advice to mathematicians and category theorists 01:26:30 - Aversion and the system 01:28:39 - Compassion cascading 01:32:57 - Complex systems … Previous episodes in this series: - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLlkzlKFgdknxjhwG5wmXRVfrkeGczVPVI … To find out more about Shinzen, visit: - https://www.guruviking.com/ep37-shinzen-young-pandemic-edition-guru-viking-podcast/ - www.shinzen.org To find out more about Chelsey, visit: - www.chelseyfasano.com To find our more about Dr Sanguinetti, visit: - https://www.guruviking.com/ep102-dr-jay-sanguinetti-cults-science-the-dalai-lama/ - https://www.jaysanguinetti.com/ For more interviews, videos, and more visit: - www.guruviking.com Music ‘Deva Dasi' by Steve James

In this episode we talk about Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein with Dr. Karen Swallow Prior, who is Research Professor of English and Christianity and Culture at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, the author of On Reading Well: Finding the Good Life Through Great Books (published by Brazos), and the editor of a series published by B&H called A Guide To Reading and Reflecting, which includes classics like Frankenstein. Over the course of our conversation we discuss the structure of the novel as well as key themes that the story brings out of relationality, and a desire to belong, and how those themes sync up so well with humanity's deepest theological questions. We also talk about contemporary ambition and technological aspirations, such as transhumanist pursuits, and what Mary Shelley's novel has to say to them. In the end we turn to the adaptations of the novel and even the broader reception of the Frankenstein story in popular culture. Team members on the episode from The Two Cities include: Dr. Amber Bowen, Dr. Josh Carroll, and Dr. John Anthony Dunne.

Sam and Emma host Kate Crawford, Research Professor at the University of Southern California Annenberg, to discuss her recent book Atlas of AI: Power, Politics, and the Planetary Costs of Artificial Intelligence, on our relationship with big tech, and the concept of the AI industry as a continuation of the extractive practices and power dynamics in the workplace that we have been building for centuries. They start off with a discussion on how Professor Crawford got into AI, and how her perspective on it has changed, from the view of the industry as one defined by algorithmic capacity and data infrastructure to an industry of extraction and exploitation, jump-started by diving into the stages of production from lithium mines to Amazon fulfillment warehouses to labs. Getting into the abstraction and depoliticization of artificial intelligence, Professor Crawford explores how Big Tech has become perhaps the most concentrated industry since the railroads, hiding behind an ideology of technocratic utopianism that has built a fear of regulation, a consolidation of power, and a growing perspective that it is essential to our way of life. Next, she, Emma, and Sam dive into the relationship between AI and labor practices, looking at the hyper “efficiency” created by workplace algorithms (e.g. at Amazon warehouses) as a revolutionary progression of Frederick Taylor's factory ideology, and exploring how this disembodied management serves to hamper organizing, particularly with the effect of the bias to believe technology. They then move onto the importance of highlighting the overlap of the surveillance state and corporate surveillance, this creation of a multi-headed hydra, and why the American public only sees the state as a threat, before expanding on the surveillance apparatus are already working to reinforce power structures that have exceeded regulation, looking particularly at the Police state and counter-terrorism measures. They wrap up the interview by discussing the future of regulation in the industry and the impact anti-trust measures could have (and why that won't be enough). Sam and Emma read some Majority Reporter updates on the mass unionization efforts going on in the US, and discuss Manchin's posturing with Bernie (physically). And in the Fun Half: Nomiki Konst joins Sam and Emma as they cover the New York democratic machine getting blindsided by a democratic socialist woman of color taking on an established incumbent, inspiring Chuck Schumer to take a break from politics, Chris Leal for TX House District #114 gives some updates on his campaign, and the MR crew discusses the judgments of Meghan McCain in the workplace for simply acting the part she's paid for.

J.-C. Spender, PhD, is an engineer-turned-business school professor, an author, an expert on the history of business education, and he's a former business executive and business school dean. These credentials equip him to have insight into the goings-on of business schools and real expertise in the practical challenges of graduate business education. Dr. Spender has a distinct philosophical bent which surfaces in this episode (and more so in Part 2 of this interview—Episode #30). He sports a professorial persona, likely honed with endless graduate students, which means a few pugilistic remarks punctuate our conversation even when we are in “violent agreement.”I asked him to come onto the LTL podcast to talk about Managerialism. He and Robert R. Locke co-wrote the book Confronting Managerialism—How the Business Elite and their Schools Threw our Lives out of Balance.Dr. Spender makes it clear from the get-go that controversy related to managerialism must be seen in terms of conflicting values. By necessity, there are distinct values driving people who are involved in the financial or operational details of large organizations. He believes critics of managerialism might suffer from the delusion that it's possible to run a complex organization without applying attention and resources to maintaining the multiplicity of needs of the enterprise itself. This “idiotic and fruitless” stance ignores the fact that friction between managers and professionals represents an inevitable clash of values.In this episode Dr. Spender says “The issues of managerialism in the healthcare sector are extraordinarily important--they are the cutting edge of getting a sense of how on earth do we manage these systems?”In this episode:-Principles and theory—the scaffolding for the actual practice of a profession-Tacit knowledge—you won't escape this podcast without a clear picture of the critical nature of experiential learning-Principles and theory must step aside to allow tacit knowledge, practice, and the “real you” to assert agency in times of uncertainty-The mystifying chasm between the business community and business school curriculum-The “deadly, fatal” loss of critique in academic business literature-Business school faculty priorities: getting published, tenured, and pensioned-Being “present” vs. sacrificing yourself to a principleMeet J.-C. Spender, PhDDr. Spender is a Research Professor at Kozminski University, Warsaw; an Emeritus Research Fellow, Rutgers Institute for Ethical Leadership; and a Visiting Scholar with Fordham Center for Humanistic Management. He served in Royal Navy submarines and he worked with Rolls-Royce on nuclear propulsion, IBM on financial computing, and as an investment banker before earning a PhD at the Manchester Business School (UK). He retired in 2003 as Dean of the School of Business & Technology at FIT/SUNY (New York). He has published eight books, and over 100 journal articles and book chapters. His most recent book is Business Strategy: Managing Uncertainty, Opportunity, and Enterprise (Oxford UP 2014) which is his dissident view of strategy as a practice that includes the need to manage a business's creative responses to uncertainty. He also writes about the theory and ethics of the firm, business strategy, and the history of management education. In 2014 he was awarded an honorary doctorate in economics by the Lund University School of Economics & Management. He is also Commissioning Editor for the Cambridge University Press Elements in Business Strategy.For details of his current work, broader interests, and a detailed resume go to: https://jcspender.com/For a Glossary of Sorts (aka Spenderisms) in this episode, read the 10/19/21 Licensed to Lead newsletter (and for heaven's sake: subscribe!): https://bit.ly/LTLmoreinfo
“I realized that we as a society have lost some of this innate affinity for storytelling. That it's not as natural in the digital age for families to gather around to listen to stories as it was maybe 100 or 50 years ago. It's something that's not happening in so many families And yet there are so many reasons to support it and encourage it.” - Mary J. Cronin Mary J. Cronin, Ph.D.,an advisor for Write the Family, an intergenerational family storytelling program affiliated with Write the World. She is a Research Professor at Boston College School of Management, and the President of 4Q Catalyst, a business strategy consulting firm. She serves as director of the Boston Authors Club, the Encore Boston Network, and the Center for Ageless Entrepreneurs, and has authored 12 books on managing digital innovation and social impact.

This past year has seen an onslaught of disruptions that call into question our ability to coexist with our environment. The devastating effects of climate change have arrived, and show no signs of abating. Flash flooding has swept across China and Northern Europe. The Eastern United States has been inundated by hurricanes of historic size. Record breaking heat waves and wildfires have decimated large swaths of Western North America. And a global pandemic continues to rage on. All of this begs the question, must we look elsewhere in our universe to ensure the survival of humanity? A growing movement of astrophysicists, biologists, and billionaire space enthusiasts believes our salvation does indeed lie offplanet. Supporters of this movement argue that we are on the cusp of technology that puts this possibility within reach, and that exploration and settlement to deal with issues of environmental instability and scarcity is nothing new. Settling the reachable regions of our universe is merely an extension of this age-old trend. But detractors of the plans to settle space dismiss it as an immeasurably expensive fever dream. In their minds, it would be far more prudent to invest our time and resources into fixing the problems here on Earth, the only known planet to host life. Beyond the massive technological advancements required, there are simply far too many unknowns about how and where life originated to assume it can be simply transported through the cosmos. Arguing for the motion is Milan Cirkovic, Research Professor at the Astronomical Observatory of Belgrade and author of Global Catastrophic Risks. Arguing against the motion is Lord Martin Rees, Lord Martin Rees Astronomer Royal, former President of The Royal Society. He is the author of On the Future whose updated paperback edition is due out in October, and The End of Astronauts due out in March of 2022. Milan Cirkovic: “There are many human achievements which, almost by definition, could never be realized if humanity remains bound to Earth.” Lord Martin Rees: “It is a dangerous delusion to think that we could escape the Earth's problems by going to Mars."

From the 1970s to the 1990s the whirlwind unleashed by the United Fruit Company converged with the cyclonic forces of insurgency and counterinsurgency. Making things worse, the cocaine boom in the 1980s exacerbated the escalating spiral of political violence. The press started calling Urabá the “red corner” of Colombia, a reference to both the scale of the bloodshed and the unparalleled power of the communist insurgencies. “Urabá, Drowning in Blood” blared a front-page headline of the country's leading newspaper.¹ An article in a newspaper in Medellín decried the “barbarism” that had seized this “faraway land” ..

Food Justice: Why Our Bodies And Our Society Are Inflamed | This episode is brought to you by Thrive Market, Athletic Greens, and Pique TeaA large part of my work in Functional Medicine is addressing inflammation. I talk a lot about how the food we eat, and our current food system as a whole, promotes inflammation and leads to chronic disease. But it's not just our bodies that are inflamed, it's also our societies and our planet. Covid has only made racial disparities even more apparent, while the disasters that result from climate change continue to climb in frequency and severity as well. It's all connected. I can't tell you how excited I was to host Dr. Rupa Marya and Raj Patel on this episode of The Doctor's Farmacy, to dig into decolonizing the food system to address the inflammatory state of our world and our bodies. Dr. Rupa Marya is an Associate Professor of Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco where she practices and teaches Internal Medicine. Her research examines the health impacts of social systems, from agriculture to policing. She is a co-founder of the Do No Harm Coalition, a collective of health workers committed to addressing disease through structural change. Raj Patel is a Research Professor at the University of Texas at Austin's Lyndon B Johnson School of Public Affairs, a professor in the University's department of nutrition, and a Research Associate at Rhodes University, South Africa. He is the author of Stuffed and Starved, the New York Times bestselling The Value of Nothing, co-author of A History of the World in Seven Cheap Things. A James Beard Leadership Award winner, he is the co-director of the award-winning documentary about climate change and the food system, The Ants & The Grasshopper. He serves on the International Panel of Experts on Sustainable Food Systems, and has advised governments on causes and solutions to crises of sustainability worldwide.This episode is brought to you by Thrive Market, Athletic Greens, and Pique Tea.Thrive Market is offering all Doctor's Farmacy listeners an extra 25% off your first purchase and a free gift when you sign up for Thrive Market.
