Download Hour1 Download Hour2 This week, a remarkable set of ideas by an unknown speaker with a highly unusual credential (a sleep deprivation record of 11 days) whom I first came across only a few days ago. His ideas are such a close fit with many of the others we have heard on the show that I felt I had to share them with you. If they are even partly true, we all need to know about it.
To underline some of Tony Wright's points, and provide connections to other speakers, his talk is juxtaposed with material from other episodes. We begin with episode 465, a reading of Charles Eisenstein's Ascent of Humanity about the Pirahã, one of a few tribes who still live a traditional life in the tropical forest, whose language and culture is singularly unaffected by modern man. Could they, perhaps, still have a healthy balance between brain hemispheres?episode 525, Michael Pollan's ideas on changing consciousness, which seem to correlate pretty closely with Tony Wright's ideas of the co-evolution of plants and humans.
Thanks to Keith Scott Mumsby for the Tony Wright interview
The left/right brain issue is addressed with powerful tesimony in the first talk of episode 655.
