For another philosophical discussion, check out Rick Palmer’s podcast Some Other Sphere! I guested on their newest episode today where we discussed the Gaia hypothesis, how I started to realize its value for the Fortean sphere, and the importance of symbology in shaping our perception of the universe.

Listen to it on: Episode 93 – Vuk (Tracing Owls Podcast) – Gaia Theory
