Travis HeadshotMy name is Travis DiRuzza and I am a doctor of philosophy, a musician, and an astrologer. I write; compose, perform, and record songs; and am Director of Programs and teacher at Trust Psyche School.

The site name “Reality Conspires” translates Plotinus’ saying that “everything breathes together” (con-spirare: Latin for “breathe with”). All things depend upon one another in an interconnected web of ecological relations–both physically and metaphysically. Diane Ackerman says: “I’m stricken by the ricochet wonder of it all: the plain everythingness of everything, in cahoots with the everythingness of everything else”. When we assume responsibility for our place and part in it all, the cosmos smiles upon us––or as Paulo Coelho puts it: “When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”
