Out of Plato’s Cave with Paul Verge


What has the mis-education from the school system done to us? What is Plato’s Cave and how can we find our way out? What is the point of OWS and why should we even care? What is “Believer Beware”? In what way was 9/11/01 an American catharsis? Where are we headed? How many of us are truly “unplugged” and how are we changing politically, socially, spiritually? This and so much more…

Originally scheduled for mid November, I simply had to push this one up.  I truly am at a loss for words to describe just how awesome this conversation was. I truly enjoyed talking with Mr. Verge and I know that you will derive a great deal of thought-provoking self-discussion from this next 90 minutes. Listen up…

    I awoke in May of 2008 when I stumbled upon The New Pearl Harbor, completely by chance. The book absolutely shook me to my core. Before reading Dr. Griffin’s book, I didn’t think that radical personal change was truly possible. I cared for nothing and no one, least of all myself. I was hidden beneath a mountain of emptiness and wistfully called it The American Dream if I had drank enough alcohol to tread close to my suppressed, severely atrophied emotions. I had earned a college degree in, ironically, the field of psychology, and couldn’t have been a more ignorant, arrogant, soft, and spoiled human specimen. I cannot believe who I was, only three years ago.

    I stumbled across your site for the first time yesterday and listened to your interview with Paul Verge. Rarely do I feel compelled to write a complete stranger, but I absolutely had to send you a message of gratitude. Not a day has gone by in the last three years that the stark reality of the ‘rabbit hole’ escapes my consciousness. I sometimes worry that I am suffering from some type of masochistic obsession. Learning that personal growth requires real work, work that simply existing never demanded, has been one of the hardest and, I daresay, most ‘American’ traits to overcome. I absolutely cannot imagine who and where I would be if I hadn’t stumbled upon Dr. Griffin’s work. I am human again, though the journey is extremely disheartening at times. Your interview with Mr. Verge was one of the best that I have ever heard. It was a therapeutic experience to hear people giving voice to issues that bounce around my brain much more than they do during conversations with others. Thank you.

    • Thank you for taking the time to comment. I truly appreciate your input and am grateful to have the opportunity to reach folks like yourself. As I strive to move forward with this endeavor I hope to bring even more thought provoking material to more people – helping the world out of the cave. I’m glad to know you are out there offering support. Knowing it, renews hope.
