Zummi 2.0: This Time it’s (More) Comprehensible

On this week’s show, we are lucky enough to have Zummi come back and try to explain the relevance of the arcane knowledge which is part of the r/SorceryOfTheSpectacle research paradigm, and how even everyday people can find an inroad into this deep dive on symbolism, language, technology, and politics.

A caller calls in to say that Zummi was “excellent,” and talked about her own practice of “self-parenting.” The upshot of Zummi’s analysis is that whatever task we have in front of us, we will be held back by our relationship to language and concepts as long as we aren’t aware of the long history that got us to the present age of hyper-specific terminology. He explains how this change to “voidal” language (which can be grasped by thinking about the relatively recent invention of the concept of zero) is part of the origin of the relentless internal monologue that we all experience, even if we are too ashamed or afraid to share this experience.

So, if you’re trying to understand what all the talk these days about narratives and frameworks is all about, or if you’re wondering how to take the arcane madness in your mind and be able to talk about it in meatspace, this conversation will hopefully be a great resource!
