Erik Davis joins KMO in the C-Realm for a face to face conversation about the psycho-spiritual differences between the East and West coasts of the United States. Later, they examine the pressure on humans living in an techno-industrial civilization to adapt themselves from biological time (kairos) to the digital time (chronos) of the clock and of information technology. Erik explains how both techno-utopian and Luddite belief systems rest upon problematic notions of human nature. Sometimes technology elicits a yuck response from us, but just as that visceral reaction can steer us wrong, we discount it at our peril.
