Very Rough interview notes: not a summary, just teasers to get you to listen.

Rob: to start us off, here's something you wrote in one of your most recent articles.

"...decide what your song will be, arrange it according to your individual talents, and start to sing. Because we must end this paradigm or it will end us.

The changes we yearn for must be first glimpsed and nurtured in the heart. Creative expression (e.g., art, poetry, fiction, inspired prose) serves as the quickening agent of dreams. Language constellates from the quanta of possibility, where it gains scope and shape, so that ideas can become manifested by means of action and form.

The heart must be allowed to dream, grieve, and yearn before the world itself even becomes possible."

Phil: For everything that comes into the world, something is lost.--

We have lost things due to being on the world wide web.

Phil: Addiction to "more" Quote of Eric Hoffer "You can never get enough of what you really don't need."

Rob: you've said that capitalism, which only allows a small percentage to win, encourages narcissistic psychopathic behavior. But isn't that true for civilization too?

Phil: Story of Eros and Psyche

Phil: There is the banality of evil and the evil of banality.

Phil: What Kabir calls the music of interior time

Rob: What's your take on the fascination with Zombies and the apocalyptic genre?

Phil: We're at a point of paradigm shift or perish

". everywhere we look there is a form of gothic horror.

Phil: there would be a revolution tomorrow if Starbucks was closed and coffee was banned.

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind. Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives one person at a time was too slow, he founded which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years.
