Kerri Welch (Fractal Synchronicity & The Future of Time)
This week’s guest is philosopher Kerri Welch, whose doctoral thesis from CIIS (and current book-in-progress) explore a fractal model of time. If you have ever wondered about time, this episode is for you. Instant classic. Kerri’s Academic Papers & Talks: https://ciis.academia.edu/KerriWelch Kerri’s Blog: https://textureoftime.wordpress.com We take a wild tour through the layers of the human brain and mind, examining the correlations between different brain waves and their correspondent states of consciousness – and speculate on our experience of time as an evolved response to a far more complex and awesome world than we can possibly conceive! Twenty minutes in and we’ve already covered the fractal nature of time and we’re on to explaining what happens to the modern self and its boundaries in the torrent of novelty that awaits un in a digital age. Then we go deep for another hour and a half… DISCUSSED: • Fate vs Free Will in light of Chaos Theory • The relationship between technology and our experience of time, overstimulated, interrupted • How Jean Gebser’s structures of consciousness overlay on EEG data • The nature of synchronicity & time vs. timelessness • The effects of ayahuasca, illness, aging, and other time-warping events on the passage of time • Singularities and our asymptotic approach to transcendence • Narrative collapse, fake news, and the end of history • Relativity, scaling laws, and city time vs. country time • What was before TIME? • Pet telepathy as a matter of referential framing • The “future” causing the “past”… • …and the physics (and psychology!) of how to feel the future. • Schizophrenia as possibly a disorder of time perception
