One thought on “Sacred Tension: Panpsychism, feat. Philip Goff”
I found this podcast via the focus on nontheistic Satanism…which I still find most fascinating.
But the fact you tough on topics like this is excellent. I’m an atheist…but I’m more and more coming around to seeing panpsychism as making a lot of sense. Consciousness is a genuinely profound and mysterious elemental aspect of reality. Sadly, because it’s long been the domain of new age woo, rational scientists often just ignore it…or explain it away with a hand wave.
But Philip Goff’s serious approach is very refreshing and illuminating.
Also…he gives a great interview. I like his overall vibe. And I love his voice…sort of a mix between Brian Cox(the astrophysicist guy who makes BBC docs about space) and Ringo Starr.
Ok…back to the episode, I still have 45 minutes to go. 🙂
