Here’s my latest podcast with Layman Pascal wherein we discuss the idea that value itself can be understood as a form of interior energy that influences consciousness and culture.

I’ll be back at building the post-progressive political movement on Monday. But today I’m savoring our last backpacking trip of the year to Capitol Reef National Park. We hiked through the remote Halls Creek Narrows. At night the dense star cloud of the Milky Way covered the sky.
Since my book, Developmental Politics, came out March 1st, I’ve been busy building the Institute for Cultural Evolution (more on that soon). But due to the pandemic, I’ve also had a chance to spend a lot of time in the wilderness. Below are a few pics from our trips this year.
