Being in the Garden of Earthly Delight
Tonight’s show was about looking at an old film with a new pair of eyes.
There was a homework assignment (view the film) handed out before the show. Those unfamiliar may find it of benefit to give it a view first before listening [downloadable].
This film has a lot to do with a topic I’ve struck on lately, gardening, as a philosophy for consciousness, the universe and our place in it as human beings in a state of being.
This film also has a lot to do with relationships (be they perceived as intimate, or not) and the rewards we derive from them. There is a theorem in physics which expresses the event[s].
Had forgotten about this scene from the film, as it shows him wandering about aimlessly, but it was definitely a foreshadow and an overt hint as to where (whether he knew it or not), he was wandering to. Very prescient when we fast forward to 2008.
Alas, there are great things we can accomplish when we come of reactive mode and flow in synch with the universe, instead of fighting it and whatever imaginary adversaries present themselves.
Hope you are enjoying the new direction the show has taken this year.
