Spiritual Metaphors in a Digital Age with Steven Vedro

 How do we move through the glut of information and data, that the internet and “the cloud” has brought to us? How do we meet the challenge of mining the abundance of images, sounds, and wisdom from the new technologies? How will our spiritual metaphors shift? Vedro suggests there are filters and guides now cropping up, and they may be the, “the neo-cloud technology artist of the future.” He says these people are emerging. “In some ways they will point us to what was there all along, but give us the filters [to see more clearly].” They will access many different bits and pieces from “the cloud,” and will mash them into new sounds and new images, which will help us realize our interconnectedness with one another and the planet. Vedro shares ways in which our metaphors are changing. We are moving away from the old industrial society of hierarchy and power based on individuals holding information closely, as we enter an age of information that is mutually shared by multiple intelligences. It’s a culture in which our metaphors reflect a worldview of abundance and interconnectedness. (hosted by Justine Willis Toms)
