E. S. Dallaire's 'Metaphor & Reality'

Extemporaneous discussions about life, death, and the nature and origin of the universe with E. S. Dallaire, a poet-philosopher who is not out to change the world, but instead personify and embody it with studied abandon, with nothing to lose except moments which won't last forever, time slipping through his fingers like the sands of an hourglass. Topics for episodes include: love, death, beauty, poverty, alienation, self-identity, a search for meaning, dreams, desires, the pursuit of wealth and happiness, war, family, transcendent experience, histories of humankind's time on Earth, and then also all the more obscure and subtle theories which inspire visions of the world of tomorrow.
