“The Two Minute Mystic” is a series of short videos (about two-to-five minutes long) where I answer your questions about anything related to the things I talk and write about: human futures, inspiration, relationships, spiritual experience and practice, mindfulness, dreams, intuition, intelligence, research, a topic in the news… (example questions here). You can discuss the videos or ask further questions in the comments section. Alternatively, send your question to Marcus, “firstname.lastname@example.org”. Use a pseudonym if you prefer.
Here I answer answer Simon”s question: “To what do you attribute the rigorous rejection of the ‘mystical’ and ‘spiritual’ by so many journalists and opinion-formers?” I went a bit overtime on this one, as the answer is not so simple. There’s a second part to Simon’s question which I will answer in the next entry of The Two Minute Mystic. It is about the recent TED censorship issue, and it provides the final “level” of the problem.
