A rare David Lynch interview about meditation, creativity and the absence of anger
This David Lynch interview has it all, it basically contains everything Metapsychosis is about. The director promotes Transcendental Meditation and his book Catching the Big Fish, already a classic, and discusses the nature of ideas, the difference between digital and analog, how to beat anger and stress-related illnesses, the importance of a consciousness-based education, the possibility of enlightenment, the meaning of “Know thyself” and, of course, coffee.
He teases us with the existence of a field of total knowledge, unbounded, eternal, and presents the benefits of regular meditation: Bliss. Love. Energy. Enjoying life. Seeing the bigger picture. Getting more of you, more power, more edge. He teaches us that “Suffering is an enemy to creativity. Negativity is the enemy to creativity,” answers the question “What does spiritual means to you?” and talks about the importance having a set-up for an artist.
Also, they both analyze the cowboy scene in Mulholland Drive.
