  • McGilchrist’s Mob: A weekly Zoom discussion group.

    Hello respected colleagues! I invite you to join me for a gathering on Zoom which shall, if desired, become a weekly ritual, to the betterment of all.

    >>> McGilchrist’s Mob: #1 – Map & Territory

    >>> Sunday, 26 February 2023

    >>> 6:00 PM London time, 1:00 PM New York, 10:00 AM U.S. Pacific

    Here is the link to a Zoom registration page:

    Here is my proposal:

    Dr. McGilchrist teaches that the right hemisphere lives in the world as it “presences” itself to us, while the left hemisphere creates a map — a “re-presentation” — by which we can navigate (and manipulate) the world.

    If all goes well, the left hemisphere submits its abstract schema for integration into the right hemisphere’s living view, but (as we know) this does not always happen; sometimes the Emissary usurps the Master.

    How are we to know when we are living in the “presencing” world, or alternatively when we are entranced by the “map” of our own creation? Where is a truth we can stand on?

    Please join this inaugural meeting of “McGilchrist’s Mob” to discuss these questions!

    I look forward to seeing your comments below, and I look forward to meeting you soon!

    –David B.

    Thanks for doing this. We need a better way of conversing that this clunky website. I will tune in.

    This is worth trying.

    However, this is a travel day for me and I may be still in transit.

    Hi David – I don’t have time at present to attend another zoom meeting – but I hope you will post a few gleams of insight/humor/etc here after the meeting. Looking forward to it and hope it works out well!

    I’m happy to report that eight people have registered for the (renamed) “McGilchrist Irregulars” event.

    Please join our discussion, a few hours from now: Sunday 26 Feb – 10am Pacific time, 1pm Eastern, 6pm London (UTC).

    Register here:

    I expect our early process will be to learn what each person is particularly interested in, and then to derive a method by which topics of common interest can be fruitfully discussed. I look forward to meeting you!

    –David B.
