The description on the Omega site explains that the weekend “offers us a rare chance to interact with a disparate, yet thematically cohesive group of “out-of-the-box”thinkers, and discover creative new strategies for navigating the zeitgeist of the new millennium.”
Sounds fine, but what do you think I should do? I believe we’ll each be given a two hour slot to make whatever mayhem we choose. Paul Laffoley will show some of his art, Howard Bloom will make a speech about some wonderfully apocalyptic scenario, no doubt. Grant will probably explain how to make a sigil (how to do magick, basically).
I’d love to raise the dead or take everyone into an alternative dimension, but neither is in my bag of tricks at the moment. I could go political, spiritual, technological, media… My hope would be to demonstrate the principles of ‘open source reality’ rather than simply talking about them.
So – if you were coming to such a thing, what would you want to do with me for two hours?
