#116 Pt 1 – Conceptualising Good, Evil & Identity: Reference Points, Religious Archetypes & The Just Conversation Podcast With Jack Thomas


This week, Mike speaks to Jack of the Just Conversations podcast for a deep dive into the concept of good & evil, identity & more – a very abstract discussion!


Part 1 of their chat starts with the “passive apocalypse” and the polarising political system in America before delving into the main conversation topic; the concept of “good & evil”. Mike & Jack discuss whether “good” or “evil” even exist, as well as the historical retelling of events that alter perception, whether or not intent can affect the “goodness” of an action, religion’s impact of the perception of evil, heaven & hell, consciousness and more!


Part 2 will be out next week on this usual feed (but both parts are already out on Patreon in one full episode) – be advised on a trigger warning, as although their discussion on consciousness continues, rape is mentioned as an example during the discussion. For clarity, the rest of their conversation tackles abtract ideas, the equalisation of the universe, how the universe may have started, the causation of consciousness, the “fountain of existence”, free will & determinism, one’s self and more, so either tune in next week or pop over to Patreon to hear more!
