I’m speaking on Operation Mindfuck: The Discordian Prank:
‘Over half a century ago Robert Anton Wilson and Kerry Thornley launched a prank called Operation Mindfuck. What they did started a cultural process that has turned reality into silly putty.
This ‘reality hacking’ opened up the possibility that we can ‘believe in’ magic again, that magical action can be mixed into politics. We can believe whatever we like, even to the extent of doing magic to change the world.
But of course it’s not only magicians who benefit from this attitude to belief. In today’s ‘post-truth’ society, where facts occupy a much lower level of importance than the way they make us feel, even political hustlers have caught on to magical thinking. So what can we do about this?’
I am just one of a great lineup, see here.
Come and see us in beautiful Berlin!
