033 – Figments of Imagination

033 – Figments of Imagination

What's this episode all about?

What’s the difference between “objective” and “subjective” reality? Turns out, quite a bit. And it’s in our subjective realities, and the differences in how we experience, interpret, make sense of and communicate those realities that contribute to a lot of the conflict and problems in the world.

In this episode of Powerful, Jeff Couillard discusses the most dangerous of the “subjective constructs”, the idea of individualism in western society, and why it’s a myth that’s worth re-examining.
