This is a repost of a discussion I had on The Meaning Code YouTube channel and podcast with Karen Wong, Dr. Richard Smith and Dr. Wolfgang Smith.
The majority of this discussion was about bringing my and Wolfgang's work together. He is a scholar and researcher in the fields of mathematics and physics, but he is also a writer on theology, metaphysics, and religion. We discuss both our work and how they connect, sacred art, geometry, the Renaissance, materialism, perennialism, sacrifice, measurement, the continuity of identity and much more.
