And now for some good news: I’ve been accepted to give a talk at next year’s Sacred Space conference. I’ll be speaking about nonlinearity and magic on Friday, March 8th, at 1:30pm.
My talk will discuss the difference between linear thinking and nonlinear thinking using examples of linearity and nonlinearity found in nature. I’ll then discuss the historical rise of linear thinking and describe how much of that linear thinking contrasts with both scientific investigations of nonlinearity and magical thinking as they have developed in the 20th century. I’ll highlight some of the nonlinear underpinnings of magical thinking and help people understand the implications of those approaches.
I hope to see you there!
