Episode 7: The Principle of Immediacy According to Us

Stever was once told, “the burn you’re going to have, is the burn you’re going to have.” We try to interpret this burner koan which speaks to the idea of being present and taking in whatever experience you find yourself in. Evan and Stever discuss some of the philosophical implications of this principle by applying it to our everyday digitally-deviced lives (did you get a notification already on your phone since reading this…?). We hear a short story about “good luck” and “bad luck” and then begin an experimental segment to our episode that tries to simulate what’s it’s like to be immediately present, and how and why that’s relevant to Burning Man. Evan presents Stever with 3 art experiences at his “camp” but Stever can only pick 2 – one will be lost to time forever…
