“The following is the 1st segment of an interview I did with Tim Mansfield in Dec. 2009. I had wanted to interview Tim Mansfield for a number of reasons. First, he is by far one of the most outstanding minds and spirits I have come across in my life. He has an almost encyclopedic knowledge of religious history, and combines this with strong foundations in integral / integrative studies in psychology and philosophy, and he embodies a unique fusion between the ancient (as a Gnostic Johannite priest), the modern (as a PhD in Computer Science) and the post-modern (as you will hear in this audio). Tim has been a very positive influence in my life and a great friend. He has been incredibly supportive during some of my challenging times, and a joy to be with overall.
