Michael Shaun Conaway – The phenomenology of Being and Time
We begin this episode by exploring the genre of Science Fiction and how it can change the direction of a life and a whole civilization. We talk about the phenomenology of time, a practice of experiencing the present moment beyond what words and narratives can tell us about it, and so, we go into a short guided meditation that allows for this experience to be had instead of explained.
Michael Shaun then talks about the way we can imagine wildly improbable futures and the characteristics of leaders that go beyond titles, power or fame.
If you hearing this podcast while are running or driving, I recommend you take 5 minutes once we begin the meditation so that you can fully experience what phenomenology can teach us about Being and Time.
