||ExplicitEscapism[Drugs, Media, Sex, Working (out)] Why do we do it? When do we abuse it?||When does relaxation move from casual hedonism to abusive indulgence? Are some forms of escapism better than others? Is escapism a healthy coping mechanism, or a dangerous numbing of consciousness that only exacerbates future suffering? What drives us to leave this reality behind for one that is altered by distraction?||8/14/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||ExplicitIs the self separate? Or are we all one?||Is there actually a gap between people, or have our eyes simply not evolved to see in frequencies that would show us the ways in which we're connected? Is consciousness isolated, or have we just allowed ourselves to believe it's limited to our own nervous system? Is there an akasha, astral realm, or a quantum universe where we all communicate subconsciously, or are we momentary meat prisons awaiting their return to being worm food?||8/7/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
