Deep down, we already know — There’s something off about spiritual influencers that claim you’re just one simple hack or magic trick away from changing your life. So why do we get pulled into their web? Why do we pin our hopes on dubious dudes promising us wealth, happiness, and enlightenment?

In this one, I identify a few huge red flags I’ve seen predatory spiritual influencers use time and time again to pull people in. Don’t fall for them.

*This is the audio version of a full video wonder dip check it out on youtube!*

Not only is there more to reality than meets the eye, reality, as we know it, doesn't really exist. As crazy as that sounds, it's actually the scientific consensus. Thanks to a handful of brilliant human beings (including this year's physics Nobel Prize winners) and groundbreaking experiments, quantum weirdness has gone mainstream. Reality-breaking concepts like non-locality, what Einstein called spooky action at a distance, are now accepted as foundational.

How did we get here? What does it mean? Is consciousness involved? I riff on those questions and more.

Autodidactic mythologist, psychology extraordinaire, and Myths That Make Us host, Erick Godsey returns to riff on the myth of what I call the omni-game-- The notion that we're all trapped in layer after layer of gamified systems. All of which may be contained within some kind of infinite game. We probe practically every imaginable layer of the omni-game-- Free will, the role of psychedelics, finite games versus the infinite game, what if anything is the ultimate player in the game? Is there a point?
