Reality Sandwich: Yoga Activism, New Economy, Ayahuasca & Kabbalah

The Political Economy of Peer Production
The P2P (peer-to-peer) revolution didn't end with Napster. P2P is giving rise to a new mode of production, a new mode of governance, and a new mode of property. It is poised to overhaul our political economy in unprecedented ways.

Yoga as Spiritual Activism
The growing popularity of yoga at this time of global transformation is not a coincidence. A yogi is someone who strives to live harmoniously with the earth, to be aware of the interconnection of all beings and things in our world. Yoga teaches that we are inseparably woven into the great web of life, matter, and cosmic space.

Ayahuasca and Kabbalah
Since Aldous Huxley published "The Doors of Perception," most spiritual practitioners have assumed that the point is: All is One. But as more spiritual seekers pursue non-unitive paths – including drinking ayahuasca and smoking DMT – I have a hunch that it is about to change.
