Interview 1297 – James Corbett on the Innerverse Podcast

by | Sep 2, 2017 | Interviews | 11 comments

In this wide-ranging conversation, James Corbett appears on the Innerverse podcasst to discuss his background in writing and literature, finding the signal in the noise of information overload, the drive to dig deeper rather than settle for consensus reality, how to share conspiracy facts with those around you, epistemological humility, pathocracy, and decentralization as the only way forward. Oh, and he also answers the question of life, the universe, and everything while he’s at it.

  1. I really enjoyed this interview!
    I loved it!
    It was very uplifting.
    The personal perspectives, attitudes, deep seated beliefs and ideas…this type of communication… …this was better than sex. And I really like sex.

  2. To the Innerverse guy – can I make a friendly suggestion that you put the advertising stuff at the end of the podcast? For people who don’t know you (I’m one of them), I’d rather hear your interview first before deciding if I want to donate, subscribe, rate 5*s, etc. I’m sure you’re going to be very good btw because I have a lot of faith in James Corbett but I still think the right move is to let people get a taste of your work before asking for loyalty.

    Also, I want to point out that James’ website is completely free (not the $1 per month you mentioned). I think the only difference is that only people who donate at least $1 per month are allowed to comment on his website. Also, for the record, you mispronounced James’ last name (it rhymes with “orbit”).

    • That’s not bad advice, I think at the stage of development I’m at, that makes a lot of sense actually. Thanks for checking out the show! And I’ll pronounce Corbett correctly from here on out 😀

  3. Just a few scribbles of observation here. I don’t really see those people who didn’t see the chemtrail planes as being victims of cognitive dissonance in that instance. Really, planes are so common today that we don’t see them anymore than we see the billboards on the side of the road. I do agree that, barring a nuclear war, we are heading towards anarchy. I think that is why things seem to be speeding up so much lately. The old Hail Mary Pass is their only chance, and it’s a pretty slim one.
    I think that more people are aware than what we (myself included) give them credit for being. No one is surprised today that 9/11 was an inside job. They all pretty much know this, it was even part of prez chump’s selection rhetoric. The main problem is that it leaves most people with an indefinable enemy, one that they can’t really comprehend. After all, just what does this government guy look like? If I ever see him, I’ll tell you what! But I think we’ll get there. And sorry Mr. Corbett, though I truly enjoyed this podcast, sex is still better. But it was a lot closer to it than most things in my life.

  4. Maybe not swine, I think you are at least a man-bear-pig! The original sin concept is perhaps better explained through the notion of dualism. The fruit eaten by Eve (those pesky women!) was of the knowledge of good and evil. We began to judge if things were good or bad. This is a continuous theme throughout the 66 books of the bible. 67 if you count Dante’s Inferno where all the christians get their hell. It is when we begin to judge that we suffer. When we feel we lack, we suffer. When we insist that others follow our own inadequate understandings of what is correct or incorrect. One of the big themes of the bible is that we started out happy, then we learned that certain things were bad (nudity), this loss of innocence led to all the crazy stuff in the rest of the old testament books. Then this guy came along and said, Just love each other, lay down your cross, stop judging others, and it’ll all be okay. So they killed him. This is a horrible explanation, but it can’t be explained anyway. It’s something that must be experienced. I’ve only had a few seconds of it in my own life, so I am hardly an expert. Sounds like you were lucky with having that friend.

    • Why you’re welcome. I knew that episode of watching SouthPark would prove worthwhile one day. While I think we can credit the Hindus for the concept, as they believed dualism was formed at the instant of creation, I would like to offer you a little brain teaser along these lines from the pre-socratic greeks. The YouBoob channel “Academy of Ideas”, a philosophy channel, has an interesting video called “Introduction to Parminedes”. He addresses this dualism by rationalizing it does not exist. Sort of. It’s well worth the time spent. Sometimes I wish I had majored in Philosophy; though I have found nothing which serves me better than Stoicism to date.

      • Well, it was the name given to Al Gore in SouthPark. I think they were mocking global simmering. But, I think the name would choose you over him any day of the week. After all, what name would want to belong to that windbag? Even though he did invent the internet and global warming! Good luck with anything involved with French Government! I studied the French Revolution for one quarter and finished it knowing far less about France than before I started. It’s not just the cooking that gets complicated with them.

      • Glad you enjoyed it. I’m easing off a break myself. By the way, though not included in that channel, there is a video called “The Most Savage Philosopher of All Time”. It’s about this lovely chap named Diogenes. While I aspire to Marcus and his Stoicism, I have to admit I’m a lot closer to Diogenes. A really swell guy. By the way, love your new name.

      • They had a pretty good definition of stoicism in that video. Nearly the entirety of my stoic thought was born from the pages of Marcus’ Meditations. The George Long translation. I was introduced to it by one of my history professors in the mid-90s and still learn from it today. It’s one of my top 4 must have books and I’d hate to try and rank any of them over the others.
        I loved the video on Diogenes, it was as if I were watching a redneck version of Marcus. Which I can relate to actually being a lot easier than I could imagine being Marcus; though I do try to emulate Marcus. I just do a crappy job of it. Enjoy the weekend, Ive got to start cleaning up the place now that I’ve soaked up some air=conditioning! Jim, who slept right through yet another hurricane in Florida.

  5. My two cents on the interview:

    – Chance has a sharp mind and is a deep thinker. I found the conversation to be mentally stimulating.

    – I recoiled a bit when he mentioned chem trails. Speculating blindly like that doesn’t look good for his credibility on other subjects. Planes circling around a large gathering of people on the day of a rare solar eclipse is not all that unusual. Seems more likely it was a media plane taking video footage for a news story.

  6. Dear Mr.Corbett, what a refreshing look behind the consciousness curtain. I hope for all this knowledge is that you don’t become the Cassandra of the post awaking world. Im completely worn down by the information you speak of, however I don’t flee from it as most people I’ve shared this kind of information with.Im flawed in believing too quickly and emotionally bias in checking and reading too slowly to validate. I have a book in que about Dorothy Parker who was the American Cassandra in the late 1920s. From the little I gained from bits and pieces I can see some similarities in her motivations to speak out about pre-WW2,Fascism and Euro-American relations and your motivations. Brave stuff in light of what can and did happen to the credible “flies” in the proverbial ointment. It may be no comparison at all and a total fluff piece. Maybe closer to the chicken little tale. Just can’t read fast enough, but however slow I am, I do know James Corbett is a brilliant wordsmith,diligent ethical researcher and capable communicator. When will we see that book you have sat on for far to long? Get cracked those kids need new shoes and we need to know how those sick eugenicists rule our everyday lives. Now Im going back to vacationing and watching the spraying of the south Michigan skies with milky pinkish vapor sheit .
