Pneumatic Materials intends to develop a more spiritually inclined conception of the present moment through critical examination of art, culture, social history, theology, and philosophy. Pneumatic Materials wants to provide a voice to the felt yearning for God on display so frequently today, which, if not provided with an alternative, might tend towards reactionary dogmatism. In this episode, Nate and Derek introduce the themes of the project, and hold a wide-ranging discussion that covers net-based religious larping, the perils of esoteric instagram, and Christian Atheism.
