I invite you to watch and listen to this individual talk.
I enjoy to no end how he speaks and what he says.

“The Matrix”:

“According to the world bank, just 227 families own 47% of the world’s wealth”

“Humans are Heroes”:

“In the dense illusory disunity of 3-d physical reality… Bugger me! Do you 5th-dimensional angels have any idea how difficult that can be? It’s bloody easy here in 5-d where we can actually see our thoughts creating reality…”

Anyone else pickin’ up what what Paradox is puttin’ down? Please pass along your thoughts and reactions!


David Telfer McConaghay was born on planet Earth. Since that fateful first day of Spring in ’86, he has wandered across its surface in search of something which, when found, kindly insists that he continue searching. His immediate family lives in Minneapolis, MN, though he also feels at home in Washington D.C.; Grass Valley, CA; Bogotá, Colombia; and now, almost Boulder, CO. He completed his B.A. in English & Creative Writing at The George Washington University in 2008. The Sivananda Ashram Yoga Farm is the primary source of any yogic inspiration David aka Sri Nivasa may express. He plays on Facebook HERE. Can be followed on Twitter HERE
