We attend to several Outrageous Voices, speaking about walking without conscious intention, Gooch’s Paradox (“things not only have to be seen to be believed, but also have to be believed to be seen”), the mediaeval habit of using other means than sense perception to authenticate reality, putting on an act in order to be yourself, advancing not by being sober, responsible, and cautious, but playful, rebellious, and immature, Tom Graves’s Nasruddin’s Law (“If something can go right, it probably will – if you let it – and usually in the most unexpected way”), and finally the attitude of contrariness, with Wendell Berry. You are invited to attend.

[As heard on Cambridge 105 Radio]
