Join the Louisville Esoteric Society on Tuesday January 28, 2014 at 6:30 PM for our next meeting:   Journey Thru Lyme:  Lyme Disease, The Appalachian Trail and One Man’s Search for Meaning Within the Matrix, presented by Logan McCulloch.

In Logan’s own words . . .

In the latter half of 2013 I walked almost 1,900 miles from Maine to North Carolina on the Appalachian Trail (AT).  I lived in the wilderness and walked all day, almost every day for five months.   My motivation to hike the AT included my desire to raise awareness of the fastest spreading infectious disease in the United States, if not the world.  My one most consistent and meaningful experience on the trail reinforced this knowing: by nature, the vast majority of people are kind, generous, compassionate and empathetic.  Yet contrasted against that recurring theme, this quote by John Lennon kept coming to my mind:

Our society is run by insane people for insane objectives. I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal ends and I think I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it’ – John Lennon

Over the previous two years, Lyme disease had knocked me to the ground…literally and figuratively.  In the years prior to my illness I had become well aware of what some now refer to as “The Matrix”, an interlocking system of mechanisms and structures of social control and manipulation.  But my personal experience with all the various aspects of this engineered epidemic called Lyme disease brought me face to face with what I believe John Lennon was trying to point out.

I left for the trail with the hope that I would find some insight, some greater meaning and purpose to my personal journey within the world I inhabit.  All my life I have yearned for answers to those grand eternal questions about life.   Given my personal experience of true human nature, one of my questions is this: Why is that nature not reflected in our greater shared societal reality?  During this talk I will do my best to illustrate both what I mean by “The Matrix”, and what answers, insights and gifts came to me during my journey.  I highly recommend watching the free internet documentary Thrive either before, or soon after my presentation.  It will help add scope, context and additional insights and research resources to my presentation.

All sincere seekers are welcome.  A $5 donation is suggested.
