The Multiversity Project

Consciousness development is an area that all too often gets bogged down with a whole lot of theory, and not a lot of practice. That's why author, filmmaker, and astrologer Antero Alli has focused his books on embodied practice, drawing from his experiences in paratheatre to create multiple courses of rituals and exercises. These practices expand on the work of Timothy Leary and Robert Anton Wilson to awaken all eight circuits of consciousness, and increase intelligence.

The US Federal Reserve ("the Fed") is putting out a coronavirus rescue package- but is it really going to help, or sink the economy?

The Federal Reserve, the massive, mysterious organization at the heart of the global financial system, has just issued a ton of new money and pumped it into the economy as a response to the Covid-19 crisis. The plan is to "unfreeze" the economy and prevent a lockdown which would devastate individuals and companies alike. But over the long-term, could this kind of rescue package do more harm than good?

In this fun, informative, and often mind-boggling episode, we sit down with Victoria Guida, a financial policy reporter at Politico, to hear the inside scoop on the Fed's response to the global pandemic.

We then do a deep dive into what the Fed is, attempt to wrap our minds around its confusing and fractal-like powers of money creation, examine the incentive structures involved, and hear an insider's perspective on the motivations and preoccupations of the Fed - both the institution, and the humans within it.

Finally, we weigh in with our own opinions- are the Fed's actions helping or hurting the economy, and what players may be at an advantage in this system?

Be sure to follow Victoria on Twitter @vtg2 for the latest news on the Fed and financial regulations.
