Episode 61 – The Species Fractal

Experiential journalist Rak Razam interviews Josh Davis, founder of the Human Mandala Project, an ambitious living sculpture based on yoga principles and made of fractaling human beings. According to ancient Vedic tradition, the body can be a building block opening energetic portals within. A deeper morphic connection can be revealed when combined with other bodies in sacred geometries. Can the group mind be engendered in the group body?

What are the potential of these gestalt organisms in yoga, festival and trance cultures worldwide? Like Dr. Emoto and the water crystals, can conscious intent placed into and through these flesh sculptures radiate into the world? Is the 'humandala' the next step towards a hive mind consciousness like insects have? As the species of fractal flowers, what can we become?
