We use the things around and below us without thinking much about the psychologies they bring with them. This video examines the psychology and mythological parallels that surround petroleum. What is the psychic reality of the crude pumped up from below? What images, motifs, and consequences follow its dark path?
Petroleum built us a civilization of tools, garments, transportation, and food. Left unregulated, however, its misuse by giant oil conglomerates threatens all our lives and those of our nonhuman kindred. Is there something about the psychic reality of petroleum that lends itself to this danger?
