KMO welcomes Eric Boyd back to the program to discuss the themes of Jeremy Rifkin's new book, The Empathic Civilization. According to Rikfin, human consciousness expands as humans direct ever-larger energy flows into improving communication, but can we achieve an empathic singularity before we completely despoil the planet? Could our hypertrophied sense of individuality be the primary source for the anxiety and alienation that we feel in the midst of technological abundance? KMO reads opinions on the value of technology from Friends of the C-Realm.
