Here we are, listeners. We have concluded "Meaningness".

These episodes have been narrating sections of Meaningness which were written during the narration of Meaningness And Time. The remainder of Meaningness has already aired. If you are new to the podcast, it picks up from here at the episode aired on Aug 4, 2021, titled "The Complete Stance".

On our next episode, we will begin "In The Cells Of The Eggplant", by David Chapman, published at An exciting milestone. Thank you for coming with me!
