This episode begins with a consideration of two great fires burning at once and the feeling that the world is on fire. The exchange of missiles of war between the U.S. and Iran erupts into headlines as massive fires in Australia torch forests and incinerate over one billion animals. Michael Meade considers the overheated atmosphere of both politics and the natural environment through the anguish of traumatic stress, both personal and collective, both post and present. This leads to ancient ideas of the dark night of the soul and how to stand in the heat of dilemmas that can manifest as war and peace, life and death, trust and betrayal.
