Playing for team human today is author, occult scholar, and wizard Jason Louv.
Jason will be helping us to see how the intentions we bring into the world of artificial intelligence could set something in motion from which it is hard to return. Jason’s latest book John Dee and the Empire of Angels: Enochian Magick and the Occult Roots of Empire digs deep into the untold and often ignored occult history of Western thinking and empire. On today’s show Jason and Douglas bridge the gap from the Elizabethan esoteric imaginary to the modern day alchemical thinking driving our technologies.

Rushkoff kicks off the show on the heels of a week of Blockchain events here in New York. What values are retrieved in blockchain thinking? And is blockchain the right tool to turn money into a verb instead of a noun?
