Codes of Reality Essay on "Reality Sandwich"

The popular blog about consciousness, Reality Sandwich, has just published my essay on our current fascination with the "Codes of Reality." It is based on Chapter Six of Digital Dharma.

Check out this fascinating blog, whose contributors include ST Frequency, Lisa Webster, Adam Elenbaas, Tristan Gulliford, Richard Smoley, Erik Davis, Sharon Gannon, Douglas Rushkoff, and others. They describe themselves as follows:

Reality Sandwich is a web magazine for this time of intense transformation. Our subjects run the gamut from sustainability to shamanism, alternate realities to alternative energy, remixing media to re-imagining community, holistic healing techniques to the promise and perils of new technologies. We hope to spark debate and engagement by offering a forum for voices ranging from the ecologically pragmatic to the wildly visionary (which, to our delight, sometimes turn out to be the one and the same). Counteracting the doom-and-gloom of the daily news, Reality Sandwich is a platform for voices conveying a different vision of the transformations we face. Our goal is to inspire psychic evolution and a kind of earth alchemy.
