Episode 131: Rocky Top

"C" stands for consciousness

131: Rocky Top



M. King Hubbert's peak is a perfect mathematical abstraction, and gliding over the top at speed might leave one with a giddy feeling of momentary weightlessness, but according to Albert K. Bates, the reality described by the mathematical object is more of a rocky mountaintop than a glassy smooth parabola, and moving over it's jagged topology won't (doesn't) feel much like gliding.

Read Albert's thoughts on bio-char or learn more about the upcoming permaculture design course in Belize.

The musical interlude in this episode features a track from Tibet2Timbuk2.
