Alan Watts lives

Here’s Alan Watts talking to IBM (1 2), probably in the early 1970s, although I’m just guessing. Very Alan Wattsian, very Sixties yet contemporary, and very enjoyable. Here’s a bite:

“But nature itself is clouds, is water, is the outline of continents, is mountains, is bilogical existences. And all of them wiggle. And wiggly things are to human consciousness a little bit of a nuisance, because we want to figure it out.”

  1. Thanks for this, David. I found these mp3s quite moving. Watts is a pathway out of the left-brained world. His conclusion here is awesome, that a thing is a think and that we’ve confused the symbol with reality, money with wealth, and the menu for the dinner.
