E3: Dr Rory Mac Sweeney and The Nature of Reality
What is the point of existence? How on earth did all of this coming into being? What is the nature of reality? And how will our understanding of a new ontology lead to a different world view?
If you like Terence McKenna, Alan Watts and the occasional navigation of the realms of the unconscious, you’ll love Rory Mac Sweeney.
Dr Rory Mac Sweeney is an avid explorer of altered states of consciousness. He holds a phD in genetics and his primary area of interest is lucid dreaming, using the dream state as a probe for investigating the nature of reality. This has led to him forging his own metaphysical theory of mind, the double edge self theory, which he discusses in his book, The Paradox of Lucid Dreaming.
In this episode we explore lucid dreaming, the nature of reality, religion, psychedelics and the future of humanity. It’s a super fun episode, and anyone with an interest in discussions around consciousness and reality should enjoy some of the content.
Rory can be found hosting and participating in consciousness-based conferences throughout London, and can be contacted on his home site at wakeupinyourdreams.com
