Materialism and Theology

Some non-stupid comment on matters theological and a critique of a certain stupid, vulgar direct materialism from Slavoj Žižek. His mic is working so feel free to skip past the introduction. Flea-readers not normally enthralled with the idea of Slovenian philosophy professors might nevertheless humour my particular fascination and consider listening to part 4. In this bit Žižek considers an "open ontology", tells a story about a Polish elevator and in so doing suggests some interesting possibilities about how the universe is put together which had not occurred to me before.
