Reverse-Engineering the Impact of the British Establishment on Muslims
"Welcome to the team podcast brought to you by the Muslim, vibe. I'm hosting possum. And this I'm Rushton in my introduction because the root. Team members of Muslim vibe team and other associated people in the office are not happy about the fact that I'm recording this for whatever reason. So I'M GONNA keep it brief. I'm joined this week by William Burroughs who is a London based research in sociology. He looks at how young Muslims in Europe and North America, navigate, race, class and gender barriers from a D., colonial and restorative perspective. That right I'm. Just reading off his website. William is a an individual who has. Countries the Muslim vitamin the posses made assume videos for us. I'm going to Lincoln description. We talk about them at all the beginning. We also talk in the podcast about white privilege and the current academic project that he's working on. which kind of looks at reverse engineering? What the British establishment has done to Muslims, and how people are able to, and have successfully on a fullback and space themselves. I'm quite a wide ranging discussion I'm hope you enjoy it. Without further ado, because of the rude people in the office to and not allowing me to speak too much on this. Sound policeman. Harris Michael Mercedes with William. William Thank. You thank you for for joining me on this podcast so I guess some people may be familiar with your face that watching this because we've done what you produced a series of of committing documentaries for us. Around some random topics. I'm trying to think back to how it all came together. So I think you got in touch with US maybe a couple of years ago. And and you had at the time I think we shed one of your videos which around? was like this. Robot version of the of the Muslim influence. Oh, yeah, that was Yeah, what working? I haven't seen that because I. Think it's hard to actually. They got that video struggle to find him for it last. What was that? So basically, it was an experiment in the sense that. You know if I can put things this way Assessor Gist, which is my job. My job is to understand. Why do people do certain things and? It's basically like being a psychologist before crowds for movements trends. But at the same time when I started my mic, my studies I as a Muslim academic. There was something that for me like a religious duty. 'cause you know for example if I talk about the topic. Is Between fifteen thousand and twenty thousand words, a chapter of my book or Article but not everyone has the time to re this and necessarily understand will jog on and stuff so I i. consider you know known as? That's minorities. Jala is not valid until it shed. And you know so. How my question for the DOT words. How do I make it? These topics complex topics accessible for most people, and then I got inspired by. Keynote these like age a-plus videos. And I thought yeah, let's try to do some videos. In a similar way, a very short format with like culture, popular references and stuff, but also did some fictions individual. You mentioned actually was one of these experiments. Where basically it's a it's a stop in fiction where I imagine. What if all these influences that we see on Instagram Youtube? There were actually robots designed by Google facebook a for Muslims to abide by the government's guidelines, so that was the NC. How people would respond to such narrative so this. Would you actually I play like a scientist and? A friend of plays like a robot actuaries ten still out for three minutes, and we use like google voice from Google, translate to for the speech and. It was. I felt like when video came out. It definitely started conversations I'm sure it ruffled a few feathers, but also got people thinking and people talking which I'm sure was your kind of Ame behind that in some sense, and then also and I'll probably try and put a link to all the different video that we discussed in this in the in the description, but does also A. Series. That we did on the most imbibed. Within that we, so we sat down. We kind of Map Tau different conversation topics. We wanted to discuss so things like politics white privilege I was actually another one and look at my note masculinity. An. What was that journey like? Because again I the the kind of brief I. Guess We gave to you is that we want? To have pieces on this one conversations to be had around this, but we don't want him to be kind of light. We WanNa go quite deep, and obviously with your kind of academic background as well. We want to really be able to get hawk. Get to the heart of these conversations. And and I think we kind of did that like that. I remember the the white privilege episode was yourself and Two or three other white Muslims that you had that interview. I'd that will combat I believe as well I they were kind of unpacking and exploring in discussing direction, relative privilege, and whatever else and. It's interesting because there was it was very feedback that one person was asking for example why there was only white people on the documentary on the on the mini documentary that we produced. And I guess what was that whole Jenny like like off of the different mini documentary that we wanNA marriage as well. What was your favorite to record in research and and I think you know although these topics are very important for me. Because all of these topics were more or less part of my journey, not only it's not only topics I research in the university this topics that are impacting on my personal life, the life of my friends, and so on and so on, and you know especially when it comes to things like a me, metoo movements who black lives matter. The problem I felt was that lots of men and lots of white Muslims you know when that people expressed that you have these like global movements, so people feel attacked and they take it personally. and. The thing is a some men and also white Muslim understand what comes from?
"william burroughs" Discussed on Sodajerker On Songwriting
"That's why it was thinking like that. I was thinking all these straight line songs are bit. Predictable. So sometimes it's a way to throw the words and images around inside, the music and other times, you wanna be straight on the meaning, you know, like if you're right in something very specific about something you saw in the news, you might use much simpler words than if you're writing from the complexity of an emotional relationship because it's never quite as simple as the simplest love songs. You know, the pain and the elation of is all much more complicated. And it also takes a lot longer. So songs you're also magically making an editorial decision to which part of the story. Oh, yeah. Talent. That's the other thing to consider that part of it is craft. I guess like if you'd think in terms of camera if you were going to focus on one detail in the in the picture. Yes. You have to know what the stop is. And how the lens works to do that. But your decision to do it is from emotion of from the need to tell a story, and that's the same as choices in songs. So when you mentioned brightness. Story about some new. So in the news, are you still regularly catcher in little bits and pieces of things you hear or titled you see somewhere or maybe in a magazine, or so I think, you know, somebody said, how'd your rights? I would say that's a good starting place in, you know, the cut up the William Burroughs thing the cut up which David Bowie is famously used Brian was another person who uses those chance elements of writing they were a part of wise up ghost. They were big power wise up goes, the record did with quest love and save Mandel ended up being credited as roots record, though, really the members of the roots really appeared as instrumentalists on record that we the three of us made an I love exchanged ideas through Stephen, you know, and then we would bring in different people to play on it. And some of the members of the roots and pain Apollo Dino played very angry who's sort of zilla replay of the roots. But from a lyrical point of view, I did really do cutoffs on my own lyrics, initially because the rhythms. Are so different. I thought well, this could be the story that we've told in the impostor song bedlam, I could take those lyrics, and I could make the emphasis more deliberate on the words because the beat is more insistent one. It's not the music isn't as fast and furious bedrooms, a good example because the music the impostors creation of Mississippi the record reflected the chaos of the lyric. But if you took time to say, the same Larry, very slowly, there was a different emotion. The emotion was one of of more like where something happens and the stunned silence. And then you start to piece together what happened? Whereas in the middle of something portraying it, then you want the music to actually be as frenetic as the ideas, you know, both have choose saying something calmly can sometimes be more Jilin threatening. I'm not in putting them in competition. I don't see why they can't both exist. And what was interesting about the processes has. We learned our working methods. We were then able to create brand new songs that didn't have any element to them. Maybe in the music they did. But not in the lyrics..
"william burroughs" Discussed on Mysterious Universe
"And the the dream machine is kind of new to me what exactly is a dream machine. So the dream Shing came about as a result of the artists Brian Geiss in who was a companion of William Burroughs, and they did a lot of experiments the whole cut up method early surrealist tool, but they took it a step further and actually wrote a book believes called third mind. Your to fact, check me on that, which is basically a novel made out of cut ups. And they saw cut up. Specially boroughs is almost a magical activity where you were again, this gets to this idea of what is magic by where you are to creating something new out of something that may be shouldn't wasn't intended to be used in that way, and you change reality. So when you take a tape recorder in you cut it up, and you let the random is Asian of where you're going to place, the the pieces you you've created this new thing. I mean, even at its most base level, you could call that Majer, right? But but he actually saw that as having given a Tory potential and actual magical potential run. So this story for and that's important because it gets too is understanding that it has to do. I think with this interplay of consciousness and material culture, medium, culture, media culture. Right. So Geiss in the story is that Brian guy soon was on a boss. Very tired sleepy trees is a tree lined street. And the sun was flickering through the leaves in such a way right onto his is that he went into almost like a trance stated started to hallucinate. And he immediately thought why can't we built something that does that? So e engineer friend took a took a piece of thin cardboard folded into a tube, and you cut out certain patterns onto it you just put it on a record player. Dangle naked light bulb into the middle of it turn on the record player in stare into it. That's it. That's all you need to do. You can get the plans online this flicker. And we know this now medically admitted find typically we know that this flicker can actually change your brains. Wave states bring you into like, these delta. Data. Yes states. So this became an incredibly popular tool for relations artist to use to induce the sort of create new creative states of consciousness, and I think this I give a magical state of consciousness is important. You know, Alex Kroll definition of magic as a sensually the art and science of causing change to occur in the world. According to will a later magician Dion fortune put a gloss on that magic is the Arden scientists causing change to occur in consciousness, according to will. And I think if we stay on the plane of consciousness, again, this idea of whether it's metaphysically true or false or can be measured or proven is relevance because we're just talking about consciousness, and we're talking about the imagination and the creative possibilities at a rise out of that. Exactly. Yeah. So Ronnie decided well, I'm gonna do this. But what he so he started a dream sheen. And then he started to get interested in by neural beats. And so he thought he could combine the two, and so what was the effect the Ronnie once he had had it included the by Nora baits. He actually founded to be even more beneficial than transnational meditation by this became for him. Like, this is the tool now, I also talked to maker by the name of Mitch Altman, and he invented something called the brain machine. And the brain machine is a kit. You can buy it or you can just get the plans probably make magazine struggles, you basically just take a pair of protective glasses you use for like doing shop work at you drill a hole in them in the eyes,.
"william burroughs" Discussed on Duncan Trussell Family Hour
"Whatever happens to be right. Well, I guess let's look at that. Let's deeply look at that which is. Certainly, all drugs are not equal and the sense that there are certain drugs that have. Far, more damaging effects on the human being than other drugs, right? All drugs have ricin benefits, and some drugs have a greater risk profile in certain areas, addiction potential things like that. But we have to understand and most important point that needs to get across is the vast majority of all drug used. No matter what drug you're talking about. The vast majority of people who use that drug use it non problematically and in fact obtain benefits from it, and that's true with stimulants. That's true with opiates as well. We just see in the media and in our own lives. The worst case scenario we notice when people are having problematic drug use. I'm going to give you an example of something that. William Burroughs. There's something William Burroughs said that. I remember when I heard it, I thought my God, this is just awful that he would say this and it's terrible, and he's just rationalizing really horrific thing. And then in retrospect is I've thought of it just from a rational perspective. I guess it's kinda right and he was saying that heroin injecting heroin into your body, physiologically is not really that damaging. No, it's not doing it all. In fact, that early addicts were doctors who at the turn of the last century who had access to it, they live long healthy lives surgeons operating on you wall. They were on their heroin. I mean, no, thanks though. Like like if I went to my doctor and it's like we're doing a surgery next week, I'm going to be so fucking high on hair. We'll wait. Let me blow another myth for you. So they have heroin maintenance programs in Switzerland and Germany, eve. Even some in Canada, we're talking instead of methadone or suboxone. If your attic, you can enter the program and they just give you your hair win as much as you want. You can go in three times a day, helps people get back, get their lives back, put food in.
"william burroughs" Discussed on Psychedelic Salon
"I think all these identities are fluid, and we're beginning to recognize that in society. And I wish there was more attention paid to. How is worth being done by other individuals who have other identities? I would. I don't know about that. I haven't gotten to that yet. I hope I do. I can. Yeah, I just I fierce another blindspot out there. The signal community where we could be more. Open and do things. Yeah. Funny I was. I was thinking the other day about William Burroughs y'all, hey letters when he went to Peru and drank Wasco. And he talks about turning into other races and other genders. His, I walk experience and. Again, a second experience. Has the potential to break down all those two Audis. And I think it's a rich area that we can all learn a lot from. What did the women say about the lessons they take away and the way they as as you said earlier, the the, the Houston Smith quote fits well of, we're not looking for a bright flash of elimination. We're looking for a steady abide, a steady of biding candle of light. And so what kind of lessons did you hear that people really got a chance to bring home and fundamentally change how they were living. I would say one of the biggest pieces. Is that so many women. Through their work with psychedelic substances and it's a whole variety. Right. I was really looking at a broad spectrum of I wa- ska LSD MDA. Right. I, I understand that in some ways problematic because they are different substances. And yet a lot of the work is often similar in a lot of women talk about being empowered as women. And again, I don't think this is necessarily unique to women. I don't think it's a gender thing, and yet I do think it's particularly important for anybody women or other people who have not felt empowered in their lives. Right? That live in a culture that has not handed them, you know, a high place in the power structure. So I've heard amazing stories. I mean, literally, it may sound like a small shift, but women. Who say. I had this experience and I kept working with it, and I felt more confident in myself and my own ability to find answers within myself and listen to my inner voice and my own intuition, and I stopped being so afraid of my ex husband. I was finally able to stand up to him, you know, maybe about a child custody issue. We're selling the house, and I'm thrilled that I hear these stories of how women put these lessons into practice in their daily lives that it makes a difference for them in their relationships at their jobs with their families that they feel they can be more authentic. And feel bicker feel they are more able to make their own way in the world and create their own realities. It's a big thing for a lot of women I speak with and is one of the really important points. I feel I comes out of the your publication is the dearth representation of women as elegant explorers, instead of being. Good girls gone bad or trivialize trivializing it. There just aren't that many great books out there about all of these amazing female writers and artists pushing the envelope in doing research and taking part as healers pioneers of exploration indeed. And in fact, if someone was was listening one to learn more to a couple of favorite books that you would recommend for people learn more about women in psychedelics in the history. One book I've loved is called sisters of the extreme. I don't remember the editors off hand, but it's a compendium of women's experiences..
