One thought on “Skeptiles: Episode 46 – Joshie Berger

  1. Listened to this and the next episode a little late as I have just had two-weeks respite from wage-slavery, which I spent avoiding computers and hanging out in a field with hippies, ravers, and other assorted weirdos. Hope and perspective restored. One thing it did help me to re-realise is that spirituality and spiritual experiences are something inherent to humanity, and that they take many forms, but that it is important to remember that they are not supernatural events (either within ourselves like ‘souls’, or outside ourselves like ‘ghost’ ‘spirits’ or ‘gods’), but are in fact the experience of certain qualitative interactions between the ‘subjective’ and the ‘objective’ (in a Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance style of thing). Where people inevitably go wrong is to interpret these experiences literally within a religious framework – lazy fucking minds…. Wow, I sound like a proper space-cadet….

    Anyhow, loved Joshie – best guest yet! All the info on the different Jewish traditions was an eye-opener, especially since my sister lives in an area of London with a big Hasidic community. I’m gonna refer this episode to her so she has a better idea of those around her. Feel so glad that one of my ancestors on my Mother’s side gave up the Jewish traditions (don’t think they were fundies anyhow)….
