Currently playing: Ramsay Wood speaking about “Kalila and Dimna Vol 1 — Fables of Friendship and Betrayal”
The tales in this book stem from humanity’s ancient immersion in oral traditions, when “once-upon-a-time” triggered utter entry into imaginary ‘storyworlds’. Wild extremes of primitive music (probably from flute or drum), voice, accent, mimicry, song and dance aroused small groups — then as now — into a vivid social sense of extra-dimensionality. Today, our more subdued, linear and sanitised literary storytelling tradition, developed over the past 2,500 years, is codified through the written word or notated score. It marks the difference between silently reading a play by Shakespearea or absorbing it through the hurly-burly of any stage performance.
The stories of Kalila and Dimna hark back to wilder times, close to our hunter-gatherer era, before agriculture, when animals, shadows and spirits lurked nearby. Some of its ancient animal-stories were first transcribed and then rejigged by poets, monks and scholars through five languages — the Pali Jataka Tales (450 BCE?); the Sanskrit Panchatantra (300 BCE?); Arabic (750 CE); Persian (1505 CE); and the 1570 English rendition by Sir Thomas North (published when Shakespeare was a mere stripling of six). Two of the earliest scholastically “re-constructed” (and distinctly different) 19th Century Panchatantra manuscripts link directly to humanity’s oral tradition of physical storytelling. We are drawn to their stories as we are to the mysteries of pre-historic cave paintings. Here be dragons indeed!
Mexican novelist Carlo Fuentes noted in 1980: “Wood’s superb stories should be set alongside Italo Calvino’s retelling of the folk tales of Italy. No higher praise is necessary.”

Currently playing: Jim Gleeson speaking about “Science God and You, The Ancient Theory of Everything”
THERE IS ONLY ONE PROBLEM: THE SOLUTION IS AVAILABLE TO EVERYONE
"The central lesson of quantum physics is clear. There are no independent objects free from consciousness, sitting out there in some pre-existing 'public space.'"
"Jesus taught no theology or dogma. He did not bring religion, but TRUTH. His teaching and his daily demonstrations of healing were entirely spiritual and metaphysical.
They were not religious but are true for EVERYONE on Earth."
There is a reason establishment science has been unable to theorize a bridge between its "material" world of mechanical physics and the ephemeral, quantum world of probabilities. The overarching theory of everything they seek will not be about complex mathematics. Jim Gleeson puts the clues all together for non-scientists and calls it "The Ancient Theory of Everything”.
