Voiceclub is drawing together seekers of wisdom, meaning, and purpose. It’s a podcast, YouTube channel, events platform, and culture-making project, for those awake enough to recognise i) the importance of individual sovereignty and collective responsibility, and ii) the necessary, intriguing, challenging task of sensemaking in the modern world.
Tim is a philosopher and psychonaut co-creating sensemaking communities for meaningful experience and conversation.
Thank you for being here.
Voiceclub is a platform for transformative conversations. In podcast form, in video on Youtube, at live events, and in local meetups.
The aim is to develop a global community built on critical, creative dialogue about the precarious unknown of our collective future.
Many important topics fall into this scope.
The many important questions of interest
Voiceclub explores questions that cluster around meaning. That is, questions of philosophy, psychology, science, psychedelics and frontier culture, as these domains relate to each other, living and society.
At a slightly finer grain, Voiceclub hosts conversations and events which tackle those questions most polarising in the current zeitgeist: the nature of consciousness, the relationship between left and right in a shifting political landscape, the relation between masculinity and femininity, identity politics, censorship and hate, the cost and importance of free speech, the conflict between science and religion, capitalism, futurism, truth, and more.
It is a guiding thesis of this project that the fragmentation which eternally threatens the harmony of man’s future is driven by his necessarily oppositional nature. We create and we destroy; we are one and we are other; we feel and we think.
We need boundaries, and we need to step beyond them.
We require order and we require chaos: a firm base in actuality so as to appropriately relate to potential.
Each science and mysticism are born of wonder, and hold utility only to the extent they enable each other’s proper function: to make parts and to make wholes, respectively.
But fragmentation is not the only threat. So too, it is taken, that an accompanying danger appears as the desire to fix a given fragmentation as the-final-whole, to submit to ideology or dogma that tries to form a totality by eliminating the reality of change.
How conversations are pursued
Voiceclub aims to develop an attitude and environment that facilitates the kind of bridge-making that allows our imaginative and critical faculties to work in harmony. That doesn’t mean rejecting conflict. It rather means taking it on, in process, oriented by a shared commitment to what is vital.
Voiceclub is about conversations that allow our imaginative and critical faculties to work in pursuit of truth and meaning. And so, to join those other platforms and individuals across the globe who intend the same.
