about

Originally webcast on March 25th, 2010. This is sort of a Whitman's sampler of various new-age type meditations on being and nothingness with appropriate musical references that came to mind at the time of it's construction sprinkled throughout, few in their entirety.

A unique and 'trippy' mix, inquiring into the 'less as more' paradigm, taken to it's most extreme. The subject of 'nothing' in popular culture, with a leitmotif of the subject of atom splitting sprinkled throughout including material about the Large Hadron Collider against the backdrop of the philosophical and scientific viewpoint that the Universe is largely and mostly nothing.

If you wish to donate to our ministry you can go to nationalcynical.com/donate or become a patreon at patreon.com/nationalcynical or consider entering in a dollar amount for this program which goes back into the project.

All derived material in this program is used fairly, accredited, and transformed (remixed / fragmented / re-contextualized / re-worked) for the purpose of education, cultural reference, and to artistically capture the cultural conversation about the subject matter during the time of this program's creation.

This researched program is the result of an artistic and creative process, which can be documented, and is meant to be heard, and taken in its entirety. Payment is not a prerequisite fee in exchange for content in order to get this package but is considered a voluntary donation toward supporting the creative work and expense behind the program.

All the used material from the radio show "Over the Edge" used in this program is used with the express permission of the show's producer.

Thank you for listening, and thank you for your support.
