Given for RubiCon on January 10, 2016.
Do our charts live on after we die? To what extent can we trace, and perhaps predict, when figures forgotten in life will become renowned after their deaths? Or when historical figures will make the news yet again? This presentation explores various astrological techniques that allow us to peek beyond the boundary of death, enabling us to engage in a deeply philosophical consideration of the ontological roots of our art.
