I am now writing book 2 of my fantasy series Parallel Journeys which is an imaginal exploration of the Singularity Archetype and an elf origin story among other things. Anybody who has reading and/or editing skills who might want to give feedback on a beta version of the series should contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be very interested to hear from anyone with publishing ideas, leads or suggestions to offer.
Kalki Movies of Australia produced three Youtubes of me talking about the subject of mind parasites:
What’s up with the fascination with zombies and vampires? Why is the skeptic movement actually the exact opposite of true skepticism? A couple of interviews I did you may find interesting: Sky Blue Symposia (formerly Time Monk Radio) has one of the most in-depth interview forums with a panel of well-prepared interviewers (from different countries) coming at you from various angles. This was my best opportunity to share thoughts I’ve had about the meanings of the evolving zombie and vampire mythology happening in popular culture (among other topics). Here is their description of the interview: We talk to Jonathan Zap about using a modern application of Jungian archetypes to help understand ourselves and our world. For over 30 years he has been using the tools of Jungian psychology to study popular culture, contemporary mythology, and dreams. Topics include: anima, animus, and the shadow. Zombies, vampires and parasites. Dream interpretation. Zombie banks, wall street and psychopaths. Femininity, patriarchy, and the white madonna and black madonna. 2012 and Y2K. Jonathan uses movies, books and current events to illustrate how various archetypes give us another perspective to make sense of our world. Skyblue Symposia Interview with Jonathan Zap

I did three interviews with Mike Hagan of Radio Orbit. Here are the links to three interviews followed by an image Radio Orbit photoshopped from an actual photo of me sitting on a bengal tiger (oh, and in response to several inquiries—this tiger was not being abused, was not chained up—I worked for many years at the Prairie Wind Animal Refuge (where the photo was taken and which is now under new management) where we rescued tigers and other big cats from guaranteed hunts and other abusive situations. This particular tiger loved interacting with people and was exceptionally well trained.
