Events for the Week: Taxonomy of Intersubjective Entities and Collapse Lifeboats
Hey beautiful people,
Here are the events for the week:
The Trolls Under the Bridge: Intersubjective Parasitology, Computational Demonology, and Things That Go BUMP in the Dark Night of the Soul w/ Evan McMullen. October 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, and 31st @ 6:00 PM ET. RSVP here.
Evan’s Philosopher-in-Residence series at The Stoa continues tomorrow. This series explores what Evan calls “intersubjective parasites” (demons, egregores, etc.) that haunt our social fields. For the 3rd session, Evan will provide a taxonomy of intersubjective entities. You can watch the second session of the series above.
Nodes of Persisting Complexity: Collapse Lifeboats for Worldwide De-complexification w/ Nick King. October 17th @ 12:00 PM ET. RSVP here.
Nick King of the Global Sustainability Institute visits The Stoa to discuss his influential paper, An Analysis of the Potential for the Formation of Nodes of Persisting Complexity. This presentation will discuss the various “collapse lifeboats” in the world, aka locations that will not experience the most egregious effects of societal collapse. From the paper …
‘Nodes of persisting complexity’ are geographical locations which may experience lesser effects from ‘de-complexification’ due to having ‘favourable starting conditions’ that may allow the retention of a degree of complexity. A shortlist of nations (New Zealand, Iceland, the United Kingdom, Australia and Ireland) were identified and qualitatively analysed in detail to ascertain their potential to form ‘nodes of persisting complexity’ (New Zealand is identified as having the greatest potential). The analysis outputs are applied to identify insights for enhancing resilience to ‘de-complexification’.
Here is what is happening at The Stoa’s wisdom gym this week:
Collective Journaling. Monday to Friday. @ 8:00 AM ET. Patreon event. 90 mins.
Collective Presencing. Every Tuesday @ 3:00 AM ET. RSVP here. 90 mins.
Stoic Breath. Every Sunday @ 10:00 AM ET. RSVP here. 60 mins.
