On this episode we meet with founding member of The Consilience Project, Daniel Schmachtenberger.
In Part 3 of their series, Schmachtenberger and Hagens explore metanarratives. Why are they threatening to various sections of society?
Further, Schmachtenberger helps us understand how we can take in the systemic meta-crisis facing humanity in ways that grant us agency, rather than despair.
