(Un)Popular Mysticism on the Internet

(Un)Popular Mysticism on the Internet

20.00

Ashley D'Arcy (Chicago: Platform Editions, 2018)

There is a lot of mysticism in our current post-internet age. D’Arcy is referring to "practices like astrology, cartomancy, reiki, crystal healing, sound baths, all of this stuff that was really popular in the 1960s and 1970s." Alongside an examination of synchronistic events online, D’Arcy offers a way to understand our digital selves through these phenomena and warns of the consequences that arise when technologists start to co-opt this language of mysticism.
