Wires Turned Sideways In Time: This Magic Stack Frame
The Season One finale of the WTSIT subcast, in which time is shown to be something the volitiotemporal effect produces, not something CPUs consume. Also: Theseus versus the Minotaur; the demise of the post office in Empire, Nevada; and a declaration that the stack is dead, long live the stack frame; and a reminder that Terence McKenna's novelty theory is the reason this podcast exists.

Wires Turned Sideways In Time: Volition

Senses In Common
We all seem to agree the thing "common sense" is supposed to refer to doesn't exist, so let's kill that phrase... or at least, redefine it. Also, climate change, and roadtripping.

Computational Theology 101
Who *is* this guy?
40 minutes | Feb 14, 2020
An "overture" laying out the themes that keep me up at night: the destruction of my atheism at the hands of ayahuasca, wrestling with what Terence McKenna called "the balkanization of epistemology," and trying to sift through Novelty Theory and how it can be brought into the fold of real science.
