LOG 47: Overcoming Carbon Form

Hope you enjoy the conversation, we begin by outlining the general argument and introduction to Overcoming Carbon Form’ before discussing how something tied so directly to rather intense pressures and potential dire implications to humanity and earth might actually benefit from a different perspective. I’m being a little vague here…you’ll just have to get the end of the episode to see what I mean.

If you listened to the last episode with Charles Waldheim, you’ll know that we started that conversation with a piece he wrote for a different LOG issue.….It’s just a coincidence in scheduling that lead to these two back to back.…No sponsored content I assure you.
