What is at the roots of humanity's inhumanity and how do we recognize Wetiko; A cannibalistic spirit feeding on greed and excess. In its non-local nature, this "germ" of psychological evil spreads into our consciousness and the tools of the rational mind are rendered helpless. Using art and imagination we can dispel the Wetiko Spirit and co-create a genuine civilization built on empathy and compassion. The Wetiko is within us, originating in our psyche. We must come to realize that our material reality is only an inference from our psyche and mytho-poetically re-imagine our perception of the symbolic universe.
Quantum Evil, or Wetiko, lives in the "in-between" spaces and is obscured in a relational phenomenon. Is it the catalyst of our inner knowing? Why do we support our own genocide? This crisis of sanity is due to a lack of imagination. The Axis of Evil is a projection of our unconscious quantum dynamics altering the syntax of our ideas and creating a victim mentality. To experience a synchronistic event changes one to the core. Synchronicities are soul-making in action. This is our initiatory rite of passage. It is time to dream a new dream! Listen to Hour 2
