A 20-minute “unguided meditation,” this audio journey combines music, conversational fragments, and field phenomena to produce a contemplative response to current events, specifically the United States presidential election of 2016. As an immersive mindscape, the sound collage invites you to engage the world as meditation, and meditation as art.
I saw the freedom of the open streets in the early morning and the romance of the street lamps curled with the eerie silence of the city’s expanse. What you call “an isolated figure” makes a left turn into a horizon of pillowy clouds and endures some kind of ecstasy while being alone in a motel room. The film feels alive, present.

Every day, when I sit alone in my dark room. Staring at nothing except the brightness of the moon I imagine I can hold it and put it as a lamp in my room. I can do whatever I need to do, like reading ,writing and painting. (I don’t need such a few humiliated hours of electricity.)

Metapsychosis means transmission between minds. It’s a journal of consciousness, culture, and planetary thought, curating essays, poetry, fiction, creative journalism, and experimental media. That’s the exoteric form. But the project is also a thought experiment, a spiritual inquiry, an invitation to explore a realm of possibilities latent within us. The question we’re playing with is: What if our minds are actually connected?
